    170. Peter Lalich QB California Univ. PA 6'5" 235
    Peter Lalich is the best passer in college football. No one throws a prettier, more accurate ball with more zip. No One.
    Don’t bother scrolling through the names of the quarterbacks who participated in this year’s NFL Combine. The 6’6, 245 pound senior is not on it. He wasn’t invited.
    Lalich was one of the most heavily recruited quarterbacks in the nation coming out of West Springfield High School in Springfield, Virginia in 2007. He chose to stay in-state and attend the University of Virginia after turning down offers from Miami (FL), Michigan, N.C. State and UCLA.
    During the summer before his sophomore season at Virginia, Lalich was arrested for underage drinking and placed on probation. He ended up starting the first two games for the Cavaliers before his court appearance where he admitted to violating his probation by consuming alcohol. He was dismissed from the UVA Football team the same day.
    Two years later, after transferring to Oregon State, he was dismissed from that program as well. This time he was caught operating a boat under the influence of alcohol.
    What looked to be another tragic ending to another talented athlete’s story took a turn for the better when Lalich found a place at the University of California (PA), a Division II school. He had a quiet yet solid 2012 season, highlighted by his 334.7 passing yards per game average.
    In an interview for NFL Draft Zone, Lalich talked about how his past mistakes made him a better person and helped him grow. In the same interview, he talks about passing his time by playing blues guitar, practicing yoga and modeling his game after that of Tom Brady. If you are trying to model yourself after another in your profession, I’d say it would be tough to make a better choice than that.
    From what I can tell, outside of two unfortunate incidents with alcohol and some self admitted marijuana usage in the past, he seems like your average college kid — only this kid has an NFL arm and high-speed computer processor for a mind when it comes to making decisions from the pocket.
    A source close to and with experience coaching Lalich described the signal caller as a “football savant”, going on to call him a “real life Will Hunting” when it came to football.
    The same source cited how the fact that Ryan Nassib, the current quarterback prospect from Syracuse, is being considered by many as potential 2nd or 3rd round pick is laughable when you compare his skill-set to that of Lalich. He went on to speculate that Lalich will be one of the most sought after undrafted free agents should he get passed over for seven rounds.
    It is also important to point out that Dallas Cowboy Head Coach Jason Garrett’s brother John was one of the primary recruiters of Lalich to Virginia. This tells me that Peter Lilich will be very much on the radar of both the Dallas Cowboys and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where John Garrett is now on Greg Schiano’s staff.
    As I said before, after watching literally hours of NFL prospects throw the ball, not one of them is a better pure passer and for that matter, decision maker than Peter Lalich. Let’s just hope the foolish decisions of a 20 year old kid don’t end up being what derails what could very well be a terrific NFL career.

    Why can't you post a thread? I think you may have a bombing of the Dolphins HQs if they were to take an OG with the first pick, but I agree he is a very good player. Margus Hunt and Terron Armstead are athletic freaks, but I have concerns with both. Armstead maybe a year or two away as he struggled a little bit in the East-West Shrine game against better competition, but if he develops right, he has major upside. With all the hype, I do not know if he will be there in the 3rd. Margus has been highly inconsistent. Being as tall as he is, he struggles in the run game as his pad level gets him in trouble and I think that will be exploited in the NFL. But if you are patient with Hunt and Armstead, they could be great additions to the team. I like the rest of the draft. Kelce could come in and contribute immediately. If Lattimore recovers fully, you might be looking at a future HOFer.

    172. Ryan Spadola WR Lehigh 6'3" 200
    Lehigh WR Ryan Spadola is one of this year’s top sleepers at wide receiver. Scouts and NFL personnel have compared him to receivers like Jordy Nelson and Brian Hartline. Ryan is coming off a great combine performance posting 40 times in the 4.4 range and impressive agility drill numbers. The combine followed up a productive four year career at Lehigh, in which Ryan posted 232 receptions and over 3000 yards.

    173. TJ Knowles TE Sacramento State 6'7" 258
    The Big Sky conference became famous a couple of years back when Portland States Julius Thomas burst onto the scene and sent the draft community into a frenzy. This year Knowles isn’t getting anywhere near the same level of love but he’s still a similar prospect. Blessed with size and athleticism Knowles may come in as an unknown and leave as the name people are talking about.

    174. Ryan Schraeder OT Valdosta St. 6'7" 304
    Valdosta State offensive tackle Ryan Schraeder is a big and athletic small-school prospect who has the potential to develop with the right coaching. Schraeder, who is listed at 6-foot-7 and 304 pounds, is considered a sleeper because of his lack of experience.
    Schraeder has an interesting story. He grew at an enormous rate in high school and college, but didn't play organized football until three years into college.
    He played one year at Butler community college and one year at Division II Valdosta State.
    http://espn.go.com/blog/afceast/post...ryan-schraeder
    Schraeder, considered an NFL prospect, is up for the Gene Upshaw Award for Division II’s best lineman. That award will be given in May at the Manheim Touchdown Club in Manheim, Pa.

    175. Lamar Mady OG Youngstown St. 6'2" 317
    2013 Youngstown State Pro Day: Mady had already showcased his skills at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine by benching 225 pounds 35 times, the second-best performance. He had been disappointed in his time, 5.48 minutes, for the 40-yard dash. Mady said he was thankful for the second chance to show his skills. He said that he performed a lot better at YSU's Pro Day than at the NFL Combine. "I feel like I made a statement," he said. "All in all, it was a pretty good day."

    Analysis
    Strengths

    Natural athlete with the bend and footwork to mirror in pass protection, often uncovered because defenders want to take on other linemen. Quick hands get into his man and keeps them at bay, flashes a strong punch to knock back defenders. Good mobility to be effective to run-block in a zone system, keeps his bend while engaged to move a target with leverage. Also capable of reaching and negating second-level targets, as well as pulling outside and trapping inside.
    Weaknesses
    Not a dominating player off the snap with pure size or strength, both on the line and in space. His anchor is usually adequate against FCS opponents, but NFL veterans may bull him backwards unless he consistently keeps his pads low. Height and length are both question marks. Drops his head off the snap at times, losing his balance and failing to see what he’s hitting. Ends up on the ground too often. Could crank up the intensity when helping out linemates, will stand around instead of unleashing his strength on a double.
    NFL Comparison
    Lance Louis
    Bottom Line
    A junior college transfer helped Butler County to the 2010 national championship game and then excelled at the FCS level, Mady still has the physical tools to develop into a starter at the next level down the line. Teams relying primarily in zone-blocking schemes will value him as a mid-to-late round pick.

    177. Mike Catapano DE Princeton 6'4"275
    Coming out of high school, Catapano — who then weighed 215 pounds — was offered scholarships to every Ivy League school, plus Temple. Ultimately, Catapano went to Princeton and capped his college career with as a Bushnell Cup recepient — for the Ivy League’s top defensive player — and an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

    At his pro day, Catapano (6-foot-3 7/8, 271 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.75 seconds on each attempt. He had a 37 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-8 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.31 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.09 seconds. Catapano threw the bar up 33 times on the bench press (225 pounds).

    Catapano should be drafted relatively high, somewhere around the fourth or fifth rounds. His stiffest competition for being the first Ivy Leaguer selected in late April could come from Harvard fullback Kyle Juszczyk or Cornell receiver Luke Tasker (son of Buffalo Bills legend Steve Tasker).

    The last time a player from Princeton was selected in the draft was in 2001, when the Seattle Seahawks took offensive tackle Dennis Norman in the seventh round. Princeton’s most notable alum in the NFL is Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, who also was a quarterback for the team from 1993 to 1999.
