Folks, we will be starting the Draft this Sunday, January 28 at 12:00 PM Noon PST, at that time, Oakland and TheDave will be on the clock.

In the first round, each team will have 24 hours to make their selection, after that point, if they still have not made their selection, they may still pick at any time, but if there is a dispute on a player between two teams, just like in the real draft, its the first to the podium who wins. We will NOT simply select a player for a given team if they do not make their pick, as it would inevitably be stealing away a player that someone who is taking the draft seriously, was targetting and we arent going to reward the slacker to the detriment of that person who was taking it seriously. We will simply let it be. However, if that team has still not made a selection at a point of two weeks after the clock expired on that pick, we will choose a new poster for that team.

For subsequent rounds, the clock period for each selection will be 18 hours.
******CHANGE: We are now changing it to 12 hours per selection in the 4th round and on, per the wishes of the community

Please use this thread for ONLY (subject to a few exceptions listed below) making your selections. This year we will be using Jens's proposal, which is one thread solely for picks and another for discussion, analysis, ridicule, praise etc. of picks.

When you make your selection, please include the following in your post:

1) Player (first and last name)
2) College
3) The exact time and day you made your selection (you do not have to list the time in every one of the four US time zones, just your time zone and specify which one it is)
4) Which team/poster is next on the clock (This is optional, you dont necessarily have to do it, but it would be helpful.)

As noted above, there are a few narrow exceptions to the "only post your picks here rule". During M-F, I generally will not be online for most of the workday (9-5) PST, so I will not be able to always immediately update when the clock has expired on a team, so if the clock expires on some team, anyone can feel free (and is encouraged) to post that "X's teams time expired at ....., X is now on the clock".

I will try my best to PM each poster every time they get on the clock (although because I cant use the net at work, I wont be able to do it everytime as inevitably someone will get on the clock in the middle of the day), in that case, when I get home and notice a change, I'll PM them at that time. In any case though, if you recieve a PM or not, you are still responsible for checking in and making your pick on time when your slot comes up.

On this post and the following post, we will maintain the "Big Board" of all picks and I'll try to continually update it so posters can see who has come off the board when they are ready to pick. I'll also update it when I see that trades have been announced and agreed to on the trade thread.

Trade Key (for OM trades, real life trades will be noted as (from/XX) next to the pick.
* SF traded firsts with JAX and acquired JAX's 3rd rounder.
** WSH traded firsts with MIA and acquired MIA's 3rd rounder.
*** DEN traded its 2nd and two 3rds to NE for one of NE's firsts (28th overall) and NE's 3rd.
****CHI traded its 1st and 4th to BUF for their 2nd and 3rd.
(a) CIN traded its 1st to CHI for CHI's 2nd, the 2nd they got from BUF and CHI's 3rd.
(b) TEN traded its 2nd to CIN for the 2nd they got from CHI and the 3rd they got from CHI.
(c) GB traded its 2nd to NYJ for their 2nd and their 3rd.
(d) CIN traded one of its 2nds (50) and its 7th to NO for their 2nd and one of their 4ths (119).
(e) STL traded its 2nd to NE for the second of their 2nd round picks (60), plus their 4th round pick and the first of their two sixth round picks (166).
(f) STL traded the 2nd they got from NE to MIN for MIN's 3rd, 5th and 6th.
(g) NO traded their 3rd round pick and their 6th round pick to PIT for their 3rd round pick.
(h) SF traded the 3rd they got from JAX (79) to STL for thier 3rd (82) and their 7th.
(i) DEN trades the 3rd they got from NE (91) to TB for their 4th (99) and 6th (163).
(j) DEN trades the 6th they got from TB (163), their own 6th (183) and their 7th (214) to SF for the last of SF's three fourth round picks (120).
(k) STL trades the 144th pick and 175th pick to BUF for the 126th pick that they got from CHI.
(l) DET trades the 129th pick to SF for the 137th pick and also the 214th pick which they got from DEN.

I dispute the draft order. The Tampa Bay/CLE selections have not been decided yet. Three is a lot more valuable than 4 and I want a coin flip ;D

All Right lets get this party started... Since Da'Raiders have been on the clock since hiring Art Shell, I figured that there has been plenty of time to negotiate a contract early with this players agents. So without further delay........

With the 1st pick of the O'mane's 2007 draft the Oakland Raiders Select:

QB - LSU

JaMarcus Russell

6'6" 255 LBS

Pros: Has a rocket launcher attached to his right shoulder, tossing 70 yard passes without breaking a sweat. Good pocket passer who shifts well to avoid the rush. Has impressive touch for a guy with the best arm since Jeff George. Difficult to bring down. Has the most pure potential of any QB in this draft and most drafts of the decade. More upside than any player in the entire draft. Very intelligent, like a coach on the field.

Cons: Probably closer to 270 than his listed weight of 255. Was on a potential national championship team, loaded with talent, but still lost 2 games. Showed up when the spotlight was on him, but flew under the radar when it wasn't. Questionable work ethic. Inconsistent, needs to eliminate mistakes.


Pick made at 9:00pm Saturday January 27th...yeah it's early

With the 15th selection in the 2007 NFL Mock draft the Pittsburgh Steelers select:

Charles Johnson, DE, Georgia. Height: 6-2; Weight: 270

Surprisingly, not many write-ups on the guy. But Pittsburgh needs to generate some heat on the QB from the DEs to take the heat off the LBs.

Charles Johnson is a defensive force that must be accounted for every second he's on the field. The 270+ pound defensive end racked finished with 9.5 sacks on the season as well as ranking tenth in college football in terms of tackles for a loss. A smart player who understands the game, Johnson has the ability to come right onto an NFL team and make an impact from day one. He's decided to enter the draft early and currently ranks as one of the top three defensive ends in this class. He should be selected around the top fifteen.

Also, from Scout.com:
Plain and simple Johnson is an incredible athlete with great speed and quickness off the edge. He can flat out do it all - stuff the run, rush the passer or chase people down.

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/media/photo/2006-09/25190967.jpg

As Kiper says on his big board, hits like a safety, covers like a corner. An underclassman who was an AP All-American first teamer, finalist for the Thorpe and Nagurski awards and is leaving with a collegiate champsionship belt is just what the Bears D needs to go from upper echelon to all time elite.

His talent level was too high for me not to make a move on him, what with Mike Brown only playing in 20 games over the last three years and the inconsistant play from the rest of the secondary. I originally had eyes on a WR and entertained early talks for this pick considering Ginn or Bowe. Both are taken and the two top WRs left on the board, Rice and Meacham, offer similar game to what Berrian gives the Bears already, a deep threat. Mark Bradley has similar tools if they continue to develop as well, so another speedy WR doesn't make them more likely to repeat ('cause we're taking melon head's fillies down!)

Moved around some to acrue enough extra value that I can keep another top 100 pick, so the Bears staff plan on taking a long lunch and checking back in for a value steal at pick #76.

With the 19th pick of the 2007 NFL draft the Tennessee Titans select:

ADAM CARRIKER DE NEBRASKA 6-6 292

Strengths: Possesses outstanding size and good quickness for his size. Is tall, well-built and powerful. Shows adequate initial quickness and good agility for such a bigger DE prospect. He plays with adequate leverage and shows the base to take on blocks versus the run. He possesses very good upper-body strength and will jar offensive linemen with his initial punch. He does a great job of anchoring at the line of scrimmage when teams run at him. He takes solid angles in pursuit and has become a reliable wrap-up tackler in space. Also is a powerful hitter. Shows good instincts as a pass rusher. Displays a wide array of power moves and is relentless in pursuit. Not a speed-rusher type off the edge, but he is productive as an interior penetrator thanks to his quickness, power, versatility and motor.

Nebraska DE Adam Carriker looks outstanding. He has all the physical attributes. Carriker uses his hands extremely well. KIPER Senior Bowl notes

Adam Carriker, DE, Nebraska
Carriker used his outstanding combination of size, quickness, power and technique to overwhelm offensive linemen throughout the week of practice and in Saturday's game. At nearly 6-foot-6, 292 pounds, Carriker can play defensive end in a 3-4 or 4-3 defensive scheme. With so many teams now using hybrid versions of both systems, his versatility is especially appealing. Don't be surprised if Carriker is one of the top 20 picks of the upcoming draft. MCSHAY Senior Bowl notes

My reasoning behind the pick is simple. I was muling over 2 players who I was ecstatic to see drop to 18. Nelson was my 1st choice but Drek took care of that with his trade so he made this pick easy for me. Carriker immediately upgrades the Titans defensive line, improves a shocking run defense and may even take the double-teams off Kyle Vandenbosch. If Bowe had've still been on the board I would've reconsidered with the option of giving Vince Young another weapon but bottom line the Titans need defensive help to get to the next level and Carriker and a couple of decent FA signings could do that. This is one of the teams on the up in this league and IMO should make the playoffs next year.

The Dallas Cowboys and Ray Finkle are on the clock.

Ray Finkle
02-04-2007, 02:09 PM
With Pick number 22, the cowboys select:

Justin Blalock G, Texas

Strengths: Plays with passion. Explodes off the snap. Has the strength to dominate at point of attack when blocking with leverage and good technique. Has excellent foot quickness. Gets out of stance and into block set very fast. Can slide and mirror very well in pass protection. Punches aggressively in pass set; follows with a very strong counterpunch. Jolts linemen upright and stops them cold. Is fast and quick enough to pull and lead block effectively on outside runs. Can step through to block linebackers.

Weaknesses: Relies upon his physical tools too much. Has not developed his footwork and blocking technique. Takes false steps in pass protection. Shows poor foot placement, which hinders ability to maintain block. Also hinders ability to play up to his natural strength. Shoddy fundaments raise questions about whether he takes coaching well.

Bottom line: A tackle most of his college career, Blalock slid inside to play guard during the 2006 season because of injury. That allowed teams to see what he can do inside. Guard is the position he'll be best suited for in the NFL. He is an outstanding athlete but will need a ton of fundamental work. Blalock is a first-round prospect who must go to a team with a very good offensive line coach who is adept at teaching fundamentals and technique and has a lot of patience

Jets are stuck wondering what to do because the GM hates the 3-4 scheme when the guy he REALLY wants doesn't fit it at all. So he goes with a Jason Taylor type DE/OLB.

Victor Abiamiri

Pros: Very athletic and can be outright dominant at times. Prototype size/speed for the position and has lots of experience. Hard worker with great intangibles. With coaching and strengthening, he has the potential to become a great DE in the future.
Cons: Inconsistency is the main issue with Abiamiri. While he can be unblockable at times, he can disappear in some games, most notably against top competition. He also needs to get stronger for the pro level as he can have trouble with bigger offensive linemen.

DE/OLB

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c179/gjbronco/moses.jpg?t=1170656062

NFL COMPARISON
Jevon Kearse, Eagles
Both players are tall, long-armed pass rushers who rely on speed and quickness rather than brute strength. However, both are undersized and struggle to anchor against the run.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SCOUTING REPORT
QUICKNESS: First and foremost in Moses' repitoire is his explosion off the ball. He may have the quickest first step of any pass rusher in college football. He also has very quick and agile feet, he can change directions well and redirect himself.
PASS RUSH: As evidenced by his 11 1/2 sacks as a junior, Moses can really get to the quarterback. He has a number of different pass rush moves including a quick spin move and straight up speed rush to get to the passer. He also displays good closing speed and aggressiveness in chasing down QBs.
ATHLETICISM/UPSIDE: A former basketball player as well, Moses is athletic and has long arms to be able to get up into passing lanes. He has the frame to add more weight and not lose his athleticism and quickness, so his upside is great. He has good, but not great straight line speed but his other qualities make up for it.
STRENGTH/BULK: Moses is built long and wiry right now. For him to be able to anchor against the run and develop a stronger bull rush, he'll need to add more strength and size. He'll have to get his playing weight up around 270 in the NFL.
PLAYING THE RUN : Part of it is being undersized, but the other part of Moses' troubles against the run is that he plays high and doesn't win leverage battles which compounds the fact that he is usually facing tackles that are bigger and stronger than him.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OVERALL PROJECTION
He brings something every team can use, heat on the Quarterback. He'll need to put in some work before he is a complete defensive end prospect, but he's well on his way and he has tons of potential.

He fell much further than I would have ever expected he would so he is a great steal at pick #27. He has great size and likely can move around playing any LB position. He is great in the backfield with 18 tackles for loss and 5 sacks this year. He has a slow timed speed from what I have seen but his game speed has been great and he will likely improve it all for combines. Big steal, Lawrence Timmons.

Strengths:
An outstanding athlete for the position with excellent quickness...Moves very well on pulls and has good range...Gets to the second level and excels in space...Feet are extremely nimble and plays with good knee bend...Smart, a hard worker and quick learner...Adequate size and strength...Still improving & has a lot of upside.

Weaknesses:
Lacks a killer instinct and doesn't always finish his blocks...Is not overpowering as a run blocker...Raw and still learning the position...Still working on mastering the nuances and technique of the position...Does not get a great push and he will get knocked backwards...Is not yet a finished product and will need to be developed.

Notes:
He began his college career as a defensive tackle before moving to tight end and then eventually settling in at offensive guard in 2004...Really didn't emerge as a top pro prospect until his senior year when he saw his stock soar...Might end up getting drafted a little earlier than his play would justify based on potential alone.

Indianapolis's time has expired but Ozo can still make his pick at any time.

Oakland and TheDave are now on the clock at 6 PM PST Feb 7th, remember folks from here on out, each pick has a 18 hour clock, not a 24 hour clock anymore.

After some thought, I think 12 is a tad severe as almost always someone would have their clock expire in the middle of the night, so we will go with 18 Hours per pick from here on out.

...and with the 1st selection in the second round the Oakland Raiders select:

Michael Bush

School: Louisville
Status: Senior
Height: 6-1
Weight: 255
40-Yard Dash: 4.55 (EST)

http://media.scout.com/Media/Image/26/268529.jpg

Positives:
Bush has an exceedingly rare combination of skills at running back: he's big, powerful, quick, and has tremendous vision for the hole. Add that to a nose for the endzone and soft hands out of the backfield, and you've got yourself a hell of a prospect. He has the power to bowl over linebackers, and the speed and acceleration to run by many safeties in the NFL.

Negatives:
There's two major problems with Bush, however. He's coming off a major leg injury, and he just doesn't block very well at all. Some say his blocking is adequate, but if one actually looks at his blocking ability, it won't do a thing at the NFL level. It's terrible, really. He doesn't set well, doesn't use his hands well, and has a hard time holding the engagement.

Overview:
Bush is, as already stated, a rare prospect. The only thing holding him out of a top-20 draft status is the injury. If he has a strong Combine and shows he's healthy and ready to go, his status hits the “elite” level again.

With the 36th pick in the NFL draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select:

Jarvis Moss


Name: * Jarvis Moss
College: Florida Number: 94
Height: 6-6 Weight: 252
Position: DE Pos2: OLB
Class/Draft Year: Jr/2007
40 Time: 4.63

Positives: Has a tall, lanky frame with broad shoulders, tight waist and good bubble...Moves very well coming off the edge and will bring immediate value in third-down passing situations...Shows above average balance and flexibility on the move and has explosive acceleration in backside pursuit...Fluid and flexible athlete with very crisp change of direction agility...Makes quick reads and reacts with good urgency once he locates the ball...Despite limited reps until 2006, it is rare to see him get faked out...Learns with normal reps and is a self-starter who puts in the extra hours after practice...Plays with good aggression, but is best when he avoids or slips past blocks rather than trying to engage the offensive lineman (lacks the bulk and strength to control)...Moves well off the line, getting his best production when he beats the offensive tackle coming out of his stance...His outstanding burst off the snap allows him to gain advantage, especially when coming off the edge...His initial step lets him beat the offensive tackle to the spot and he has that extra gear to run by them...High energy type who closes on the ball with good pad level...Defeats blocks with quickness rather than power...When he gets a free lane, he has the ability to knife through and penetrate the line...Has very good lateral movement in pursuit and is an explosive form tackler when closing on the quarterback...Has the speed to give chase along the perimeter and good ability to sift out the ball in a pile (four forced fumbles in 2006)...Shows very good hip snap and adequate wrap-up technique, using his long reach to make good arm tackles...What he does best is explode off the edge and generate pressure on the pocket...If not accounted for, he will sack the quarterback due to his speed and pad level (has excellent hip wiggle and shake to juke).

Negatives: Still trying to recover the strength and bulk that he lost while battling his pelvis injury...Needs to add at least another 20 pounds to his frame to prevent blockers from walling him off when trying to work in-line...Must keep his hands active, especially vs. low blocks, as he tends to get taken off his feet too much trying to slip through trash (does not protect his legs on the move)...Plays too high on the move and this causes him to struggle in attempts to squeeze down the rush lane, and will get washed out when he tries to split double teams...More effective playing off the edge, as he lacks the raw power to defeat blocks when lining head up on an opponent...Struggles to disengage when working over the middle, as he is easily defeated vs. face-up blockers...Has good flexibility, but for some reason his hips sink and his feet die when blockers get their hands into his body...Lacks the hand strength to jerk and pull down the offensive linemen (must improve his rip and club moves, but has an efficient swim move)...His three-year struggle with a staph infection in his pelvic bone needs further medical evaluation...The school will not discuss suspensions, but there is a need to challenge the player on the reason he was suspended for the 2006 Western Carolina game.

Compares To: SIMEON RICE-Tampa Bay...Some experts compare him to Jevon Kearse, but while Moss has Kearse-like quickness he lacks the bulk and upper body strength to defeat face-up blockers. Moss could possible move to outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment, but at least brings instant value in third-down passing situations, where he can do what he does best -- penetrate off the edge to disrupt the pocket.

Tampa Bay is thrilled to grab Moss here as he brings instant pass rush to a position that is aging and becoming less effective. This was a hard selection as four of my five targets were still available.

Pick was made at 9:17 am mtn time...DB4life with the Jets is up.

DBroncos4life
02-09-2007, 01:22 PM
The New York Jets select.....

Aaron Ross


Pros: Well rounded CB who plays well in both zone and man-to-man. NFL caliber size, speed, and athleticism. Good punt returner who could step in and start in this role right away. A smart player who understands his responsibilities and how they apply to the defense as a whole.
Cons: Can be tenative, lacking the aggressiveness inherent to all great DB's. Does not show the 'short memory' needed to succeed as a starting NFL CB, will need to be brought along slowly or his confidence may take a beating (see Ahmad Carrol)
Draft Exchange Analysis:
Athletic, speedy and aggressive fourth-year defensive back has played in 38 career games with 123 tackles, 14 PBU and four INTs has been Texas top punt returner for the past two seasons has returned 53 career punts for 653 yards (12.3 ypr) and two TDs his two career punt returns for TDs are a UT all-time best played in all 13 games, starting two, at cornerback in 2005 earned first-team All-Big 12 honors as a punt returner from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express-News recorded 62 tackles, two TFL, a team-high three INTs and nine PBU posted 500 punt return yards (No. 3 on UTs single-season list) on 34 returns (No. 8 on UTs single season list) and scored two TDs (T-No. 1 on UTs single season list) his 14.7 yards per return average ranked 10th in the nation he is only the second player in UT history to return two punts for TDs in a season also finished third on the team with nine special teams tackles shared time with Tarell Brown in all 12 games in 2004 had 36 tackles, three PBU and an INT in 2004 led the team in punt returns and yardage that season with 18 for 136 yards made an immediate impact at cornerback and on special teams as a true freshman in 2003 versatile former prep running back and receiver who once posted 362 all-purpose yards in a high school game played in all 13 games as Nathan Vashers backup at left corner and on special teams in 2003 recorded 25 tackles, including 11 on special teams (T-third on team), that year a versatile three-sport star as a prepster, lettering in football, basketball and track and field.

With the 40th pick the Miami Dolphins select Quinn Pitcock, DT, Ohio State.


http://graphics.fansonly.com/schools/osu/graphics/programs/2005/2005mag-texas-pitcock.jpg

Strengths:
Extremely strong...Always hustling and his motor runs non-stop...Excellent versus the run...Gets a push and will hold his ground...Uses his hands to shed blocks and is a sure tackler...Mobile with good quickness and should test well in workouts...Is technically sound and does all the little things...A tough, hard working leader with a lot of experience and terrific intangibles...Still improving and has a bit of upside.

Weaknesses:
Is not a great pass rusher...Lacks explosiveness and a burst to close...Size is only average and he has a maxed out frame with short arms...He is not overly athletic and looks stiff and tightly wound...Can play with better leverage at times...Took advantage of weak competition when piling up his stats...Has durability concerns.

Notes:
Grandfather, Bill Edwards, played football at Miami (OH) and his younger brother, Jafe, will be playing Division I college football next fall...An overachiever who gets the most out of his ability...Really came on as a senior and totally blew away his previous career highs in both tackles for a loss and sacks...Had shoulder surgery prior to his senior campaign and that will need to be checked out...The type who will never be a star but he's just very solid all-around and will play for a long time.

I believe BPC is correct - St. Louis has 45 and Carolina 46.

With pick number 46, the Carolina Panthers make Jake Delhomme, this year's Jake Plummer by Selecting:

Drew Stanton, QB, Michigan State

Strengths:
Has good size and a solid frame...Arm strength is excellent...Is a terrific all-around athlete who can move in the pocket, throw on the run and hurt defenses with his feet...Displays good accuracy, touch and timing...Is smart and a good leader with top intangibles...A gunslinger who is very competitive and tough...Can take over and dominate a game when he is on...Still has quite a bit of upside and potential.

Weaknesses:
Is wildly inconsistent...Doesn't handle pressure well...Has a lot of mental lapses and will take too many chances...Has battled injuries throughout his career and durability is a big question...Will need to adjust to a pro-style offense...Throwing mechanics and footwork will need work...Too eager to run...Opens himself up to big hits...Stares down his target...Has a long memory & bad plays stay with him.

Notes:
Has all the physical tools you look for but doesn't always play up to them...Tore his ACL while covering a punt in 2003...Looked like a potential high first round pick prior to his senior year but, like his Spartan team, he really struggled at times in 2006...Classic boom or bust type who looks like an elite prospect one game and an undrafted free agent the next...Could be a great starter in the NFL but for that to happen he'll have to develop some consistency and cut down on the mistakes

Just to clarify the confusion, I don't know how STL made a pick, the order I posted in the first post on this thread is the second round draft order that is from both The Huddle Report and Great Blue North Draft ...STL isnt picking till a few picks later....specifically # 52, unless there has been a trade that hasnt been mentioned on the trade thread.

Here is the order:
http://www.thehuddlereport.com/nickelpackage/draftorder.shtml

Confirmed by Great Blue:
http://www.gbnreport.com/full2007draftorder.html

02-11-2007, 01:15 PM
With the 46th selection in the 2007 NFL Draft the Pittsburgh Steelesrs select:

Marcus McCauley, Cornerback, Fresno St.

Strengths:
Has prototypical size...Timed speed is outstanding...Athletic and quick with fluid hips and a great burst...Physical and aggressive...A playmaker with pretty good ball skills...Has great body control, leaping ability and timing...Good tackler who will support versus the run...Has superb instincts for the game...A hard worker with good intangibles...Is able to play and excel in either man or zone coverage.

Weaknesses:
His technique and footwork can be inconsistent...Will gamble and take too many risks...Hands are questionable and he will drop some interceptions...Needs to get a little stronger...Was not really thrown at a lot in college...Has trouble locating the ball...Struggled mightily at times in 2006 and didn't have a great senior year.

Notes:
A better prospect than Richard Marshall (a 2nd round pick) was a year ago and he had a great rookie season for the Carolina Panthers...Really has all of the physical tools you look for in a top cornerback and should be able to step in and start very early on...The type of lockdown corner that every team is constantly searching for.

The New York Jets are proud to make Zack Miller the newest member of the family.....


Pros: TE Zach Miller holds many of ASU's records for a TE. Quite an accomplishment consider he did this in just over 2 years of play and had former ASU TE's Todd Heap's records to smash. Miller combines good TE size (6'5" and 260 pounds) with skillful receiving skills and solid work as a blocker to be a great junior TE prospect. Some view Miller as one of the top three collegiate TEs. Outgoing ASU HC Dirk Koetter called Miller his "best receiver and best blocker" which is serious praise for a TE. Great upside and pro ready.
Cons: Breakaway speed is perhaps the only lacking quality in Zach Miller's game. Although speed is not a top requirement for NFL tight ends, it does help to have some quickness and mobility to threaten at the next level. in 2005 Miller did suffer a left ankle sprain that had him miss a couple of games. But he is not considered injury prone.
Draft Exchange Analysis:
ASU: Possibly the most talented tight end in college footballl...combines mental and physical toughness, amazing receiving skills and punishing effort as a blocker...Named a 2006 Playboy All-American...was named to the preseason watch list for the Maxwell Award, which is presented annually to the nation's top offensive player...earned preseason first-team All-America honors by the NFL

the "Best Instincts" in the conference...in his first two seasons at ASU, he has caught 94 passes for 1,028 yards and 10 touchdowns...shattered ASU's freshman receiving records...joins wide receiver Terry Richardson as the only two current Sun Devils with more than 1,000 career receiving yards, and ranks second to Richardson among active Sun Devils in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown receptions...over the past two seasons, he ranks first nationally among tight ends in receptions (94), and second in receiving yards (1,028) and touchdown catches (10)...ranks fourth all-time in

for his efforts in the team's winter strength and conditioning program (top 10 in points)...joined by his older brother Brent on the ASU roster. 2005: Started 10 games...earned honorable mention

Bowl...had a season-long 34-yard reception on the first play from scrimmage against rival Arizona...also caught the game-tying two-point conversion pass from quarterback Rudy Carpenter with 7.52 remaining against Wildcats...had three receptions for 26 yards and a touchdown in the season opener against Temple...was listed as the eighth-best tight end in the nation by the Sporting News. 2004: Started all 12 games as a true freshman...was named the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year, the second Sun Devil to earn that distinction (Terrell Suggs was the other)...earned second-team All-America honors from both the Sporting News and rivals.com...was one of four freshmen in the country to earn first- or second-team All-America honors...was also a first-team Freshman All-America selection by both publications as well as the Football Writers Association of America...rivals.com also named him to its All-Pac-10 squad...turned in 56 catches and 552 yards, shattering ASU's freshman receiving

Baltimore Raven All-Pro Todd Heap had in 1999...the best tight end in school history, Heap turned in just 12 catches for 209 yards and four TDs in his freshman year...Miller's six TD catches tied for first on ASU single-season charts and are already tied for sixth on the career list...his 56 catches tied with Oregon State's Joe Newton for the most in the nation by a tight end and ranked ninth in the ASU recordbook for receptions in a single season...already ranks seventh on the ASU career chart for tight end receptions...tied for second on the team with six receiving touchdowns...tied the school record for receiving TDs by a tight end with his six scores (Joe Petty had six in 1971)...finished seventh in the Pac-10 with 4.7 catches per game...caught a career-high 10 balls for 85 yards

yards Nov. 26 at Arizona. HIGH SCHOOL: A 2004 graduate of Desert Vista High School in Phoenix...was a unanimous selection as the No. 1 tight end prospect in the nation...USA Today first-team All-American tight end...Rydell All-America tight end...listed as the No. 1 tight end, the No. 50 overall prospect in the nation, the No. 7 prospect in the West and a member of the Top 100 "Dream Team" by PrepStar...a member of SuperPrep's preseason top 50 players in the nation...earned 93 points (seventh-best player) to make first team pn the Long Beach Press-Telegram's "Best In The West" list...member of the Tacoma News Tribune's "Western 100"...listed as the No. 1 player in the state of Arizona by SuperPrep...listed as the No. 1 tight end and No. 5 player in the nation as well the No. 1 player in Arizona by Rivals.com...played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl high school all-star game...named the "Big School" Player of the Year by the Arizona Republic...won the Tempe All-City Scholar-Athlete Award of Excellence in May 2004...a first-team 5A All-State pick by the East Valley Tribune as a tight end and linebacker...was the recipient of the Vic Householder Award, given annually by Phoenix Metro Football Magazine to the Arizona Player of the Year...Arizona Gatorade Player of the Year in 2003...named the Phoenix Metro Magazine Player of the Year...Southeast Valley and Central Region Offensive Player of the Year...Tempe all-city tight end as a senior...ESPN top-ranked tight end and No. 10 player overall in the country...the Sporting News All-American first-team tight end...Student Sports Magazine first-team All-American...had 47 catches for 790 yards and six touchdowns as a senior...also added 134 tackles on defense, 11 quarterback sacks and one interception...also won the Larry Gordon Award, presented annually to the state's best linebacker, and the Henry Stanton Award as the state's top receiver...both awards presented by Phoenix Metro Football Magazine...Gordon was a former ASU linebacking star...first-team offense and defense selection by that publication...amassed 27 receptions for 520 yards and six touchdowns as a junior...on defense, he accumulated 102 tackles, 16 tackles for loss and 11 quarterback sacks...as a sophomore, made Student Sports Magazine Sophomore All-America tight end...was third-team all-state by the Arizona Republic as a sophomore...second-team All-East Valley tight end by the East Valley Tribune as a sophomore...made All-Central Region first-team at tight end as a sophomore...selected Desert Vista's Best Defensive Player Award as a sophomore and was first-team all-city honoree at tight end...made All-Central Region second-team at tight end as a freshman...a tremendous student with a perfect 4.0 grade-point average...earned four letters in football and three in track...captained his football team as a senior...set the school discus record and was the shotput regional champion in 2004...also earned all-city honors in discus in 2004...finished third in the state in discus in 2003...coached by Dan Hinds.

With the 50th Pick, the New Orleans Saints select:
Justin Harrell, DT, Tennessee
Strengths:
Has good size with long arms and the frame to bulk up further...Athletic with solid speed and good quickness...Is mobile with pretty good range...Plays the run well and is a good tackler...Will penetrate and make plays in the backfield...Tough and will play through pain...May have some versatility...Hard worker...Top intangibles.

Weaknesses:
Has some health concerns and durability is a major question mark...He struggles to shed blockers...Has an inconsistent motor...Can use his hands better...Is not overly stout at the point...Is not real powerful and his good weight room strength does not always translate to the field...He never really had a breakout campaign.

Notes:
Missed the majority of his senior season with a ruptured biceps tendon but put off surgery for a week so he could help his team in a big game against Florida...Does everything well but doesn't really stand out in any one area...Might also project to defensive end in a 3-4 scheme...The Volunteers have a strong pro tradition when it comes to defensive tackles and Harrell will attempt to follow in the footsteps of John Henderson, Shaun Ellis, Darwin Walker, Rashad Moore and Jesse Mahelona.

IMO, a definite steal this late, has immediate impact capabilities.

Brian Leonard, RB, 61, 240, 4.5

http://media.lawrence.com/img/photos/2005/11/12/scoreboard_bw_sports_t600.jpg

Brian Leonard is a rare playmaker at fullback. He is a fantastic runner, and has a lot more natural running ability than most fullbacks. For a fullback, he shows very good speed and athleticism and is not just a short yardage runner. He is a load in those situations though, showing the ability to drag defenders and fight for extra yardage. Hes also an excellent receiver out of the backfield. He is a legitimate weapon with the ball in his hands, as a runner and receiver. Leonard is also a touchdown machine. He just has a nose for the end zone. He has 40 touchdowns in just three seasons at Rutgers. Footballs Future

A blue collar guy who can simply make plays, he's the perfect fit for the Pats. A natural safety who can play corner when called upon, and we all know how Belichick loves guys who can play multiple positions.

Great production. Needs technique work. (late-Round 1 to Round 2)

Official Bio

Strengths:
Three-year starter with a lot of experience...Has excellent size...A good athlete with great quickness...Very strong and powerful...Is stout at the point of attack and can hold his ground...Will deliver a blow and drive blockers backward...Able to penetrate and disrupt the action in the backfield...Pursues and chases when he's not tired...Disengages from blocks well...Still improving & had his best year in '06.

Weaknesses:
Tends to get out of shape and stamina has been a problem...Does not have very good timed speed and lacks a burst to close...Needs to play with more consistent leverage and keep his pad level down...Needs to use his hands better...Only an average pass rusher...Work ethic, intelligence and intangibles are questionable.

Notes:
Nickname is "Tank"...Played on the same defensive line that produced three 2006 first round picks (Mario Williams, Manny Lawson and John McCargo)...Was briefly moved to the offensive line as a sophomore...Really broke out as a senior in '06 and elevated his draft stock a great deal which is all the more impressive when you consider that he wasn't surrounded my as much talent as he was in previous years...Will still take too many plays off but there is no denying the talent and he has the tools...A boom or bust type who could excel with a more consistent effort.

After seeing three of my top targets taken off the board in the last 5 picks, Seattle is still enthused to select TE Greg Olsen out of the University of Miami.

http://postpix.palmbeachpost.com/images/photos/100044/2006/09/04/gallery/1352923.jpg

(6'5", 250, 4.75E)

Strengths: Solid size and strength for a TE. Former receiver with great hands. Runs precise routes and can get upfield after the catch. A better blocker than most think. Despite an '06 season that did not meet expectations, many still think he has star potential in the league. Great third-down target and averaged an impressive YPC of 14.0 over his Miami career. Has outstanding work habits, and could ultimately go much higher than 55 after the combine and Pro Day workouts.

Weaknesses: Pure speed is questionable. Has room to improve as a blocker. Never really exploded onto the scene like many thought he would after an illustrious highschool career (though there are probably some "extenuating circumstances"), and some of the shine might've worn off.

Summary: Despite recent reports that Seattle may franchise TE Jerramy Stevens (if a long-term deal isn't reached), I think this pick still makes sense given the great value and Stevens' history of inconsistency and his possible asking price. In the ideal scenario, Seattle ends up with two TE's who are extreme threats in the WCO. Both are versatile enough to lineup at multiple positions on the field as well, and Olsen offers more as a blocker than Stevens. There were also hints this season that Holmgren may start using more 2 TE sets in the future, so any thoughts of Olsen simply being depth can be dismissed.

I don't forsee Olsen having much trouble replacing Stevens if need be, either.

With the 61st pick in the 2007 Orangemane Draft the Baltimore Ravens select S Aaron Rouse from Virginia Tech.


Position: Safety

School: Virginia Tech

Status: Senior

Height: 6-4

Weight: 215

40-Yard Dash: 4.40 (EST)
Positives:
Aaron Rouse’s physical presence is almost unnatural. Based on his size and speed alone many projected Rouse as a late first rounder before the beginning of the 2006 season. Some NFL scouts dubbed him as “the best player that you’ve never heard of.”

In his 2005 campaign with the Hokies, Rouse led the team in tackles, taking snaps at both safety and whip linebacker. Rouse gravitated to the role of leader after the fiasco that was the Gator Bowl (Jimmy Williams’ ejection and StompGate). He rallied the team, and began the season as the undisputed owner of Foster’s lunchpale (the trophy for defensive leader).
Rouse’s versatility in stopping the run and sound coverage ability helped to ear mark the Hokies as one of the best defenses coming into the 2006 season. As a reward for his outstanding play he was moved to the coveted “rover” position in Bud Foster’s defense.
Negatives:
The 2006 season. Rouse began the season as arguably the best safety in the country. However, once the time came to play a meaningful game, Rouse was no where to be found. Georgia Tech picked apart the Hokie secondary and not all of it was Calvin Johnson. Assigning Rouse to the Georgia Tech receiving corps was too much.
Things only got worse as Rouse was pitiful in the very next game against Boston College. He loafed around the field and ended the night on the bench before engaging in a heated argument with fellow teammates Vince Hall and Brandon Flowers. After the poor back-to-back performances Rouse lost sole ownership of the rover position to another senior, Cary Wade. Since then, Rouse has improved his tackling and put in more effort. However, the two seniors still continue to split time.
Overview:
What happened? Rouse’s play and behavior mark a 180-degree turn from the 2005 season. There are some talented safeties in this year's draft and Rouse did himself a major disservice by playing so poorly. LaRon Landry and Brandon Meriweather already had a healthy lead coming into the season, but many saw Rouse as the dark horse that might steal the crown.
The good news for the Norfolk native is he has unmatched size and strength. Also helping Rouse is the recent talent of Virginia Tech defensive backs in the NFL (DeAngelo Hall, Jimmy Williams, and Eric Green, all of whom Rouse played with in Blacksburg). Nonetheless, those late first-round dreams are all but forgotten.

Rouse’s attitude will be of major concern. That same issue haunted his former teammate, Jimmy Williams, in the 2006 draft, where he slid from a sure top-15 pick all the way into the meat of the second round. Barring jaw-dropping numbers from the combine, the same slide is likely to plague Rouse.

With the 63rd pick of the 2007 NFL draft the Tennessee Titans select Anthony Gonzalez WR Ohio State 6-0 195 40 speed 4-39

Time to give Vince another target.

Strengths: Drives off the line, changes directions well and is a crisp short-to-intermediate route-runner. Shows good awareness and settles into soft spots when reads zone. Is tough and isn't afraid to go over the middle. Extends arms and catches ball away from frame. Shields defenders from the ball, shows good focus and can make the tough catch in traffic. Has excellent body control and can adjust to passes thrown outside frame. Wastes little motion turning upfield after catches and has good top-end speed. Runs hard, stays balanced and flashes the ability to pick up yards after contact. Uses hands fairly well, plays with a wide base and sustains blocks once in position. Has some experience returning kicks and can contribute on special teams. Steadily progressed at the collegiate level and should continue to improve with experience.

Weaknesses: Frequently worked out of the slot at Ohio State and there is some concern about his ability to get a clean release against press coverage. Doesn't have great bulk and can get pushed around by physical corners. Quicker than fast and doesn't show a second gear when tracking the ball downfield. Lacks ideal elusiveness and isn't much of a home run threat after the catch. Though he has adequate leaping ability, isn't very tall and should have some problems competing for jump balls. Lined up opposite Ted Ginn Jr., who often drew attention away from him, and has yet to prove can be a No. 1 receiver.

Overall: Gonzalez was redshirted for the 2003 season. In 2004 he appeared in eight games, notching three starts, and finished the year with eight catches for 179 yards (22.4 average) and two touchdowns. Gonzalez played in all 12 games in 2005 and caught 28 passes for 373 yards (13.3 average) and three touchdowns. He started all 13 games in 2006 and recorded 51 catches for 734 yards (14.4 average) and eight touchdowns. During his final three seasons (2004-'06), Gonzalez also returned 11 kicks for 135 yards.
Gonzalez doesn't make enough big plays for a prospect with his kind of speed, but he has the makings of an excellent possession receiver in the NFL. He runs great routes, fights for the ball while it's in the air and has excellent hands. Gonzalez could come off the board as early as the second round.

I would have actually taken this kid at my original spot at 50 but had an inkling he would slide because of the attention given to Ginn at Ohio State. Amazingly the 5 of the 6 guys I would've taken at 50 are still available but my 1 went off the board thanks to CO's elusive board (Great value with Houston CB).

With the 64th selection in the draft Tampa Bay is proud to select:

Josh Gattis, FS, Wake Forest

STRENGTHS:
Josh is an excellent safety and plays the game with passion that you dont see too often anymore. He has excellent size, strength, speed and burst and is an excellent tackler. Hes a hard hitter who does not shy away from impact. He shows decent change of direction skills and good solid coverage skills to stay with most of the big WRs and TEs at the next level. Josh plays football like he forgot to take his Ritalin and I dont mean that in a bad way. If more players in the NFL played with the same passion Josh has, there would be a lot less WRs going over the middle of a defense and making great plays with their heads still on their shoulders. Josh shows leadership skills and he reminds me a lot of Rodney Harrison (S New England Patriots).

Rare-sized athlete for his position, demonstrating excellent height, power, quickness, agility, balance and body control...Has a tight waist, broad shoulders, good bubble, good thighs and calves and only 6 percent body fat...Consistent playmaker with natural hands for the interception...Has outstanding read and diagnose ability, doing an excellent job of reacting to the pre-snap movements...Has the short-area quickness to shadow and trail the receiver, showing smoothness and hip snap to come out of his backpedal with no wasted steps...Sees the field and has the top speed to close on the ball vs. plays in front of him...Gets an excellent break on the ball due to his ability to anticipate the quarterback and has the long stride and sudden burst to close ground quickly...Shows fine body flexibility and explosive leaping skills to compete for the ball at its high point...Natural hands catcher who does a good job of looking the ball in over his shoulders and securing it before heading up field...Has good plant-and-drive agility, taking proper angles to close on the ball in run support...Will not hesitate to sacrifice his body to make the play in run force...Plays up on the flat route, doing a fine job of knocking down the pass by competing for the ball in a crowd...Shows very good body adjustments in deep and shallow zone assignments, getting an explosive break on the ball...Smooth in transition, demonstrating the loose hips and change of direction agility needed to come out of his pedal and close on the play with urgency...Has the range to get out of his breaks and does a very good job of keeping plays in front of him.

NEEDS TO IMPROVE:
Josh needs to play a little more under control. He has to understand that not every hit needs to be a knockout hit. He has to learn to play smarter to keep himself from getting injured. If he doesnt learn to play more under control, he runs the risk of injury to himself and penalties against him that will hurt his team. I have no doubt that he will learn all of this for himself after some growing pains and some injuries.

Shows toughness to hit hard and wrap, but needs to stay lower in his pads to deliver better force behind his tackles...Shows good urgency closing on the ball, but needs to use his hands better to protect his body when trying to sift through trash...Will sometimes short arm working near the pile, struggling to shed...Strikes with good force, but is still developing consistency when breaking down, facing up and wrapping...Will get a little reckless in his play at times, especially when competing for the jump ball (needs to reach around and over receivers better to prevent pass interference penalties).

Overview:

Josh can play in a lot of different defenses and he could play either safety position. The best fit might be in a two deep zone, but I also think he could play in a single free safety defense or in time, he could be used in a defense like Troy Polamalu is used in Pittsburgh. He is a smart kid, but he does have to calm down. Josh might not have the cover skills and change of direction skills Troy has because he is a little locked in the hips, but he should do alright with experience and repetitions. Josh should be able to help the team that drafts him right away and, if he can play under control and cut down on the reckless hits, he is going to be a hell of a player. I have no doubt he will accomplish what he needs to stay on the field. This is a quality kid (along with a few others on this team).



With all the talk about the other safeties in this draft, a guy like Gattis drops almost into the third round in our mock. This kid is the total package as he hits, covers in zone, punishes receivers, forces INT's, and plays with a passion for the game. In short, he is a playmaker in every aspect of his responsibilities. Plus, he is a high character guy who works hard to get better and does what it takes to succeed.

Mediator12
02-16-2007, 09:52 PM
With the 67th pick of the 2007 NFL draft, Tampa Bay selects:


Ray McDonald, DE/DT, Florida


STRENGTHS:
Ray has good size, strength and quickness for this position. He never stops working on every down. He does a solid job using his hands to keep the O-linemen away from his body and has good balance after he splits the tackle and guard and gets into the backfield to disrupt a play or put pressure on the QB. Ray is an excellent teammate and has moved back and forth between the DT and DE position for his team. He looks like he would be a good fit as a DE in a 3-4 defense or a DT in a 1-gap, 4-3 defense. Because of Rays quickness and strength, he is surprisingly good at stopping the run as well as rushing the passer. He has a lot of the same qualities and talents in his game as Tommy Harris (DT Chicago Bears), but he is not as big as Harris was when he came out. Ray has room to get bigger and because of his character and work ethic, I do not think it will affect his speed and quickness at all.

Has a stout frame with good chest thickness, long arms, large hands, wide waist and hips and thick thighs...Lacks sustained speed, but shows good explosion off the snap that allows him to consistently gain advantage in his initial charge...Added bulk to his frame before the 2006 season, and it was evident by the way he was able to hold ground at the point of attack and split double teams better than he did in the past...Has the lateral agility to get out and neutralize the outside rush, showing the vision to quickly locate the screens and sweeps...With his improved strength, he seemed to be much more active with his hands, using them effectively to prevent blockers from locking on and walling him off... Has a good feel for blocking schemes and knows the assignments of each of his defensive line mates...Has played both tackle positions and strong-side defensive end during his career, and that versatility will prove invaluable at the pro level (could either be utilized as a defensive end in a 3-4 alignment or as an under tackle in a 4-3 scheme)...Naturally strong athlete who didn't always shoot his hands well in the past, but technique refinement in 2006 saw McDonald generate a strong punch to shock and jolt the blocker...Was also very effective using his hands to lock on, grab and drag down ball carriers...Has the sudden burst off the ball to push the pocket and clog the rush lanes ...Has the natural explosion and quick first step to reach the corner and showed improved lateral range to slip in-line...When he keeps his pads down, he generates the functional strength to hold his ground firmly...Has the athletic agility to generate quick counter moves and demonstrates the body control to turn, spin and slip past a lethargic offensive lineman...You can see on film that he knows how to use his long arms to neutralize reach and cut blocks...Lacks an array of pass rush moves, but shows good effort in attempts to push the pocket.


NEEDS TO IMPROVE:
Ray needs to stay at one position so that he can grow and learn. Right now, he is doing everything on athletic talent alone because he has been moved around so much. If he wants to be a DT, he will have to bulk up and if he wants to be a DE, he will have to learn better techniques. None of this should be a problem because Ray has such a good work ethic and character, but it does affect his LTI.

Has added needed bulk, but can still use some additional weight to use vs. double teams...Has an explosive initial burst, but his speed tapers off when he has to move long distances...Has quick reactions when he locates the ball, but just seems to lack a feel for the ball, especially in play-action...When he keeps his pads down, he can hold his ground, but tends to get too tall in his stance shooting the gaps, struggling to maintain position...Has improved his hip snap, but when he fails to sink his weight, he gets his feet too wide, losing leverage and is then beaten by the double team...Has improved his hand usage, but when he fails to shoot them, blockers get into his chest and he then struggles to disengage...Lacks pass rush moves and his only effectiveness here is when he gets a free lane to the quarterback...Stout enough to push the pocket, but doesn't have the sustained speed to pursue in space (six pressures in 46 games)...Takes well to hard coaching, but needs to be pushed and prodded at times.

OVERVIEW:
I really like Rays game a lot and I think in a few years, he will become an impact & core player for the team that drafts him. I think when he works out at the combine, he is going to show everyone that he is a very good athlete; when that happens, he should move up the boards fast. Most scouts are going to tell you that Ray is a tweener, but Im telling you he is not. The only reason he did not stay at one position for his college team was because of injuries. Every time his team was short at the DT position, he was asked to move and he did it willingly. Ray could play a strong side DE in a 4-3 or a DE in a 3-4. If he bulks up, he could play DT in a 1-gap 4-3 defense. He has a ton of talent that hasnt been tapped yet. I think the best position for him personally will be as a strong side DE in a 4-3 defense. He would give you a Michael Strahan look to your defense. I felt the same way about Tommy Harris (profile in achieves) when he came out. Ray McDonald is going to be a hell of a defensive lineman for the team that drafts him. It will just take a little time.


I see McDonald playing undertackle for TB. He has the right kind of effort and drive to do the dirty work inside and with good coaching and technique refinement he has the physical tools to play UT at the pro level. He is also strong and physical enough to play the run better than the DT's TB currently has in Hovan and Wyms. His injuries make him look like the bionic man, but he was tremendous in Mobile and a good character guy with high motivation and effort every play.

Here's some info on Fred Bennet for Youcan/New Orleans.

Fred Bennet, CB, South Carolina

Height: 6-1 | Weight: 198 | 40-Time: 4.45

Official Bio

Strengths:
Good size and a solid frame...Smooth athlete with great speed and quickness...He is very aggressive in coverage and gets his hands on a lot of balls...Comes from a program with a reputation for producing pro defensive backs...A great leaper who puts himself in position to make plays...Matches up in zone & man...Major upside.

Weaknesses:
Is not overly physical...Only average as a tackler and in run support...Instincts are questionable and he doesn't have great ball skills...Hips aren't fluid and he plays too high...Makes too many mistakes and gets beaten too often...Doesn't always play up to his physical tools and is a bit of a underachiever...Durability concerns.

Notes:
The Gamecocks have also sent the likes of Sheldon Brown, Dunta Robinson, and Johnathan Joseph to the NFL in recent years...Spent one year at Hargrave Military Prep School...Underwent offseason shoulder surgery in 2005...Has everything you look for in terms of measurables but might be a workout warrior who gets drafted earlier than his play would usually indicate based on potential and not production.

Was a member of two of the three fastest 4x100M relay teams in Vols history...He has everything you look for from a physical standpoint and really just needs to put it all together.

With the 80th pick of the 2007 NFL draft the Tennessee Titans select Craig Davis WR LSU 6-2 207 4.42

Strengths: Possesses intriguing physical tools, including above average size and very good speed. He does a good job of working short-to-intermediate zones and is not afraid to go over the middle. Can stretch the field vertically and shows the acceleration to consistently get over the top of defensive backs in man-to-man coverage. He reaches top speed quickly and shows the ability to separate right away. His hands are much improved. Shows the ability to pluck on the run and can make the tough catch in traffic. He gives a good effort as a downfield blocker in the running game. He continues to improve and with more experience could be a "diamond in the rough" from the 2007 class.

Weaknesses: Still has room to improve as a route-runner. Needs to get in and out of breaks quicker. Also needs to show more savvy setting up defenders. Durability was a problem early in his career. Missed time in 2003 with a broken right elbow and in 2005 with a concussion.

Overall: Davis was limited early during his true freshman season of 2003 by a broken right elbow and finished the year with seven catches for 63 yards after seeing action in nine games. In 2004, he appeared in all 12 contests making eight starts, and led the Tigers with 43 receptions for 659 yards (15.3 average) and scored one touchdown. Davis played in 11 of 13 games during the 2005 season with five starts after missing some time due to a concussion. He finished the year with 35 receptions for 559 yards (16 average) and two touchdowns despite being sidelined for the Mississippi State and Florida games.
Davis has been underrated throughout most of his career and he had his best season as a senior in 2006. He has been overshadowed by other gifted LSU receivers in the past (and Dwayne Bowe) but Davis has lots to offer as an NFL prospect, including good size, speed and hands. Minor injuries and inconsistent route running had limited Davis in previous seasons, but he has remained healthy and become far more polished as a senior. Overall, Davis' stock is soaring right now and he could come off the board as early as the second round of the 2007 draft. We think he can develop into a very productive No. 2 receiver if coached well at the next level.

Strengths:
Very athletic and still has a lot of upside...Has good size and a solid build...Timed speed is excellent and he has a burst...Hands are extremely reliable...Adjusts well to poorly thrown balls...Elusive and runs well after the catch...Big play threat who can hurt defenses vertically...Holds his own as a blocker...Also a top return man.

Weaknesses:
Durability is a concern...Shys away from contact and will not sell out to make the catch...Needs to improve as a route runner...Was not overly productive and didn't always play up to his ability in college...He is still somewhat raw and unpolished.

Notes:
Real name is Craig but he goes by "Buster"...Played on a very talented team and was overshadowed by Dwayne Bowe at times...Has all the tools you look for in a wideout and could really blossom at the next level if given more of an opportunity.

Rohirrim for the NY Giants selects:

Mike Otto LT Purdue
65, 305, 5.1

STRENGTHS
Mike can play any position on the offensive line. He has natural athletic talent and very good technique to go along with leadership qualities and excellent mental toughness. Mike has quick feet so he can be used in an offensive system that pulls its offensive lineman. He is a powerful kid and has good lower body strength to go along with his quick feet in order to finish his blocks on running plays. He shows excellent balance and knee bend to keep himself steady when pass blocking. Mike is a football player and the teams that pass on him who need a football player (much less a plug in offensive lineman) will be making a big mistake.

OT, DOUG FREE, Northern Illinois

Doug Free
OT | (6'6", 309, 5.13) | NORTHERN ILLINOIS

Strengths: A tall offensive tackle with adequate bulk and even more room on his frame to get bigger. He does a good job with his first step and blocking angles in the running game. He shows outstanding quickness and mobility for his size. Is an agile offensive lineman with the ability to consistently reach the second-level and hit the moving target in the running game. He gives a great effort on every play and will impress you with his motor. He shows good quickness in his set and rarely will get beat by speed off the edge. He also plays with good balance and body control, which allows him to shuffle laterally versus double moves. Displays good awareness in pass pro, as well. He has great experience and has been a durable player throughout his career. He also has dominated the mid-major DI-A level for the last two seasons.


*A lot of people have been down on Doug Free in the past weeks/months but fail to realize that he played most of his Sr. season with a stress fracture in his foot. His mobility was severely limited by his injury yet he gave 100% and didn't miss much time. He will continue to get bigger and stronger and could be one of the top 3 Tackles in the draft when all is said and done.

Seattle and WABronco are on the clock.

With the 85th overall pick, Seattle is again enthused to select Lorenzo Booker, RB, FSU.

http://media.scout.com/Media/Image/17/176363.jpg

5'10", 190 lbs, 4.4

Strengths: Extremely explosive RB with top-notch receiving skills (soft hands and can run multiple routes). Makes his presence felt with his big-play ability and open-field shiftiness. Though his size will inhibit his effectiveness as a blocker, he is said to be a technique blocker (he can cut block easily, as well). Excellent character.

Weaknesses: Obvious lack of size. Not considered an every-down prospect. Has some durability questions. Never blossomed into the player many thought he would be as the nation's no. 1 RB prospect out of CA, and he leveled off after a solid sophomore campaign.

Summary: This pick addresses Seattle's complete lack of even an adequate third down back. Mo Morris has never been able to seize that role and Alexander is not close to being the receiver or blocker necessary for the job. With Booker's explosive ability, Seattle's third down capabilities increase exponentially.

Holmgren also likes to run a few split-back sets every now and then, and Booker would give him a better option than Strong or Alexander.

His return skills bring an added bonus. Should a move be made in the receiving corps (ex D-Jack trade), Booker's presence would allow Burleson to concentrate solely on the receiving part of his game.

Simply put, this pick adds another dangerous weapon to Seattle's potent O. This guy can make a big play on any down and at any place on the field, out of the backfield. He gives the Seahawks something they don't currently have.

The Cowboys select:
Jay Moore DE Nebraska

Strengths: Is smart and shows good instincts. Makes plays against both run and pass. Shows quick footwork; consistently is the first defensive lineman moving at the snap. Is a versatile pass rusher with a good bull rush and quick inside moves. Is adept at shooting gaps inside of offensive tackles to blow up runs in the backfield. On runs away from him, excels at reading plays and maintaining corners before pursuing. Is a good special teams player. Weaknesses: Looks smaller than measured size. Struggles to shed offensive linemen once they get their hands on him. Lacks an explosive burst to beat offensive tackles around the corner. Doesn't get consistent leverage on run blocks. Struggles to hold ground at the point of attack. Doesn't always finish plays. Gets cut to the ground too easily.
Bottom line: NFL teams struggle to evaluate players like Moore, either drafting them too high because of smarts, instincts and intangibles or drafting them too low because they look more like linebackers. Most teams will view him as a 4-3 end, but he might be able to play 3-4 rush linebacker. He may turn out to be a tough, playmaking starter who raises the effort and intensity of his teammates.

With Starks possibly on the way out the Steelers need some help on the O-Line. This kid has all of the physical tools and Pittsburgh is a great place to learn the o-line trade.

Height: 6-5 | Weight: 292 | 40-Time: 5.20

Official Bio

Strengths:
Very athletic with good quickness and agility...Extremely light on his feet...Has a good frame with long arms and the room to get bigger yet...Able to handle speed rushers off the edge...Displays outstanding balance...Very smart and doesn't miss assignments...Mobile with good range and can get to the second level...Four-year starter with a ton of experience against elite competition...Still has some upside.

Weaknesses:
Doesn't have the ideal bulk you look for and struggles to maintain his weight...Not very powerful and needs to get stronger...A bit passive and he may lack that killer instinct...Does not always play up to his talent level...Not real stout at the point of attack and will get pushed back...Average as a run blocker...Questionable motor?

Notes:
Father, Kevin, played football at Wisconsin-Stout...Was featured on MTV's "True Life" in August of 2003...Hails from the same Cretin-Derham Hall high school that produced Steve Walsh, Chris Weinke and Joe Mauer, among others...He might be able to play left tackle in the pros...Relatively rare athlete at the position who has the physical tools you look for and just needs to become a little more consistent.

Might not project to be a true #1 receiver at the pro level but can be an excellent #2 option...Doesn't get a lot of attention but he has quietly emerged as a top pro prospect and how high he goes may surprise most casual observers.

02-20-2007, 02:49 PM
With the 91st selection of the draft, obtained through the Denver Broncos, Tampa Bay Selects:

Stewart Bradley, LB Nebraska

Strengths:

Stewart is an excellent strong side LB. He does a great job defending against the run and is athletic enough to stay with any TE in pass coverage at the college level. He is a head up, wrap up, squeeze and drive tackler who always seems to be in the right place at the right time. Stewart shows good change of direction skills and is a very smart LB that understands situational football. He shows leadership skills and is a confident player who works hard on every play. Stewart is coming off a knee injury from last year. Every game I saw him in this year I saw more and more of his natural athleticism returning, so Im guessing by the time he works out for the pro teams he should be just about back to full strength. I have not seen Stewart play any other LB position, but something tells me that he could play any LB position, given some time. Stewart might be the most complete and best LB in this draft.

Has a developing frame that could add another 20 pounds for a possible move to rush end, with no loss in quickness...Has an athletic, big physique for a linebacker, with good upper body muscle definition, tight waist and hips, good bubble, strong lower body frame and only 10 percent body fat...Has adequate timed speed, but keeps plays in front of him and has a good short-area closing burst...Works well in space, showing fluid change of direction agility...Has the balance and body control to stay on the hips of the tight ends and backs in the short-area passing game...Uses his hands effectively to press and reroute...Chases hard and shows good urgency getting to the ball...Hits with pop on contact and has the strong hands and technique to jar the ball loose from the ball carrier (four fumble recoveries, three forced fumbles in 2006)...Smart, instinctive player who reads schemes well and is alert to play-action and misdirection...Explodes behind his hits and uses his strength in attempts to wrap...Has the body control to break down in the open field and improved his ability to take angles when making plays in space (did not overrun the play as much in 2006 than he did in the past)...Will face up and wrap with intent to punish...Has a good work ethic who puts in extra hours in the weight and film rooms...Has good vision to quickly locate and close on the ball...Makes good body adjustments on the run and is quick to react to misdirection...Plays the run with good stoutness at the point of attack, using his hands and upper body strength to stack and control...Has enough upper body strength to split double teams and clog the inside rush lanes...Holds his ground firmly at the point of attack and is active with his hands in attempts to shed...While he won't hesitate to take on blockers, his instincts lets him make plays when unblocked due to his quick read-and-react ability, compensating for a lack of blazing speed...Won't blow up ball carriers in his tackles, but will secure and drag down...Can throw and jerk blockers, if needed, but prefers to fend off, play off and close in on the ball rather than stay and offer combat...Has the functional burst to close on running plays along the edge and has the range to string plays out and take away the cutback lanes...Will get a little out of control in his pursuit at times, but has the athletic agility to recover...Keeps his pad level down to make plays down the line of scrimmage and move through traffic (makes a lot of east/west plays)...Knows how to pick up his feet to avoid trash...Has the loose hips to get depth in his pass drops, but is better playing in the zone than in man coverage...Understands zone concepts and is alert to switch-offs, but needs to continue working on taking better angles...Very effective on stunts, especially when unblocked and uses his hands effectively to squeeze through the rush lanes...Shows good anticipation and explosiveness on the blitz (can dog inside or off the edge)...Has the speed to flush the quarterback out of the pocket.


NEEDS TO IMPROVE:

Id like to see how he would handle the MLB position. Because of his knee injury, he is still not back to full speed, so when he works out, I do not expect his burst to be what it was before the injury; however, Im sure it will return eventually.

Durability is a slight concern due to his 2005 and prep school injuries...Has adequate timed speed and a decent straight-line burst, but lacks suddenness moving from sideline-to-sideline...Lacks natural hands and fails to extend for the ball outside his frame (several pass deflections could have been interceptions, but he bobbled and double-caught the ball)...Can keep relationship with the tight ends and backs in the short area, but loses sight of the ball in flight and doesn't have the timed speed to mirror receivers past the second level...Has good strength, but doesn't always deliver crunching hits to drive back the ball carrier (more of a wrap-up type)...Has improved in this area, but still takes some poor angles in pursuit, causing him to out-run the plays at times...Eyeballs the quarterback too long working in the deep secondary, allowing the receiver to get behind him (struggles to recover when beaten)...Better making plays in backside pursuit or on the edge, as he will get a little reckless closing in space.


Overview:

Trust me when I tell you that this kid is the most complete LB in this draft. I noticed him at first when Barrett Ruud was playing for Nebraska. I thought Stewart was a lot better than Ruud. I believe that if Stewart had not gotten injured, he would have had as much positive press as Carriker got during the season. Id love to see what this kid could do in the middle. He is very smooth and quick and to be honest with you, he is easy to miss even though he is a big LB. He handles the double team on a sweep around his size with ease. He is smart and can shut down any TE that is up against him. Im guessing he runs in the 4.70 area, but his burst and change of direction skills allow him to play faster than he times. Stewart plays with character, intelligence, passion and talent and thats how I rate the players I like in the draft. You guys can take the flashy juniors - Ill stick with seniors that play team ball with excellent athletic talent.


I saw this kid Live in mobile and had to come back and watch his film to confirm what I saw down there. A big, quick, strong, complete OLB in this draft? I watched the film trying to disprove what I saw down there and was really surprised to see the playmaking abilities in this kid. More than anything, he played consistent football. Love his heart, intelligence, and passion to go with his recovering ACL.

With the 93rd selection in the OM Draft, the Chargers select Manuel Ramirez, OG, Texas Tech. Height: 6-4, Weight: 335 lbs.

Analysis

Manny Ramirez has a ton of experience, having started at guard for Texas Tech since his freshman season. During that time he has been a very durable player who rarely misses time due to injury. He is a hard worker and a team leader both on and off the field. He has an excellent combination of size and strength for an interior offensive lineman. Manny owns the Texas Tech bench press record with a 550 pound lift. He is a tough, physical lineman who is very strong at the point of attack. He dominates opponents in the running game and does a good job of finishing his blocks. He is a better run blocker than pass blocker but coming from a pass-oriented offense, he is still above average in pass protection. He lacks great athleticism and has trouble blocking moving targets at times. He isnt very versatile and will be limited to playing guard at the next level. After playing in the spread offense at Texas Tech the past four seasons, Manny will have to adjust to playing in a pro-style offense. Manny Ramirez is one of the best run blockers in the draft and should be a first day pick in the 2007 NFL draft.

With the 94th selection of the OM 2007 NFL Draft the Tennessee Titans select AJ Davis CB North Carolina State 5-10 190 4.4 40 speed

STRENGTHS
AJ is very quick and damn fast. He has all the athletic talent you need to play the CB position at the next level. He is a smart player and possesses excellent natural change of direction skills. AJ plays equally well in zone or man-to-man coverage. He is a good tackler and does a decent job coming up to support the run. He shows excellent hands to intercept the ball and is great when defending the fade pass in the end zone. AJ is also a very solid special teams player and will help out a team in nickel-dime and special teams right away. AJ is a very good player and as soon as he realizes it, he will become a CB that QBs at the next level will stay away from.

NEEDS TO IMPROVE
AJ needs to build up his confidence and learn to take more calculated chances. He has to learn to forget when he makes mistakes and he has to play stronger so that the bigger receivers dont push him around when they run their routes. As soon as he learns these things, he will become a feared CB and a playmaker.

TALENT BOARD ROUND: 2
Confidence, confidence, confidence -- that is really all this kid needs to impact at the next level. As soon as AJ gets more experience in the league and feels like he is as good as anyone else, this kid will be something to watch. He has that quick twitch and the smooth hip-flip that will allow him to recover and intercept a pass in a blink of an eye. As soon as AJ gets some experience, he is going to be able to sucker a lot of QBs into interceptions. He is one of the quicker CBs in this draft and that quickness will be critical for success on special teams; this will make him a double trouble weapon for the team that drafts him. AJ looks to me like he could be something very special, but his LTI is a little longer than most players with talent like this because he needs confidence in himself to become the CB his talent suggests he can be. Before this draft is over, this kid could easily move into the first round.

With the first pick in the 4th round the oakland raiders select:

Doug Datish

Center-Ohio State

Height: 6-5 | Weight: 295 | 40-Time: 5.15

Strengths:
Good quickness, athleticism and mobility...Has the frame to add some weight and bulk up...Is extraordinarily versatile with starting experience at center, guard and tackle...Is technically sound and does all the little things...Nasty and plays with a killer instinct...Smart and a hard worker with good intangibles...Has some upside.

Weaknesses:
Was never able to focus on mastering a single position...Has short arms...Needs to get bigger...Does not get much of an initial push...Plays too high at times and needs to display more consistent leverage...Not overly strong or powerful...Can be too aggressive...A 'tweener who might not be a perfect fit at any pro position.

Notes:
His father, Mike, played for the Buckeyes in the mid 1970's...Played guard early in his career, left tackle as a junior and then moved to center as a senior to replace Nick Mangold...Not nearly the prospect that Mangold was but his ability to play all over the offensive line leads you to believe that at the absolute least he could be an extremely valuable backup at the next level and potentially a whole lot more.

Antonio Johnson
oooDT Mississippi State

http://img136.imageshack.us/img136/9122/johnsonantonioh150ju9.jpg

Antonio Johnson (http://www.mstateathletics.com/index.php?s=&url_channel_id=18&change_well_id=17&member_id=74 ) has been steadily moving up draft boards in recent weeks. The former Juco transfer even turned up in the first round in a mock draft (http://www.draftdaddy.com/MD/MDstat.cfm ) done last month by a lesser known draft website. That seems improbable, but I do believe he'll be off the board in the late second to early third round in April.

Johnson's triangle numbers are very impressive. He's 6'3", 305 pounds and he's been clocked at 4.95 in the 40. His frame suggests he could pack on some more weight as he matures.

The senior has only played two years of major college football and only started for one, so he's definitely still a work in progress. His impressive showing at Senior Bowl practices seem to indicate he responded very well to instruction from NFL coaches (http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/profile.php?pyid=67729 ):

NFLDraftScout.com - 01/24/07 - Senior Bowl South Team Wednesday Practice Report: Mississippi State's Antonio Johnson has been the South's most consistently impressive defensive tackle. Johnson has shown good initial burst off the snap and was able to give some of the South's top interior linemen their toughest draws of the day.
More Senior Bowl praise for Johnson (http://www.draftdaddy.com/prospects/seniorBowl.cfm):

Another gulf coast player who attracted significant attention was Mississippi State defensive tackle Antonio Johnson. Johnson displayed above average explosion, good feet and was stout against the run. Additionally, Johnson seemed to legitimately try hard and was very coachable. Johnson picked up the instructions of the 49ers line coach quicker than his peers and is comfortable doing the dirty work to occupy blockers. Possibly an ideal fit with several of the league's 3-4 defenses.

With the 111th selection in the 2007 OM NFL Draft the Tennessee Titansselect Samson Satele OL Hawaii 6-2 294

STRENGTHS
One of the most difficult blocks for a center to handle is the strength of this kid’s game. Samson is a powerful kid that plays with good leverage and excellent strength. He is smart and has excellent leadership skills. Samson can handle a big nose tackle straight up in the passing game without any problems at all and like I said before, that is the hardest blocking technique for a center to deal with when playing his position. He shows decent enough lateral agility to help out his guards in the double team and shows the mental stamina to deal with a full 16 game schedule without any problems. For the right offense, Samson is a plug-in center for the team that drafts him.

NEEDS TO IMPROVE
The areas in which Samson needs to improve will be very difficult for him to improve in because of his body type. He has naturally wide hips, which reduces his ability to run in space and turn his body at the same time to block without almost slowing down to a stop. Samson will also have problems going out to the next level to block a Linebacker and when he pulls for a sweep. That being said, Samson is a perfect fit for a zone-blocking scheme.

TALENT BOARD ROUND: 2
If Samson did not have difficulty in turning his hips, I would rate him as the top center in the draft. Teams that use the zone-blocking scheme on offense might rate him as their top center; however, for the purposes of this draft and for all thirty-two teams, I cannot rate him as the top center in the draft. He is strictly a system center and a damn good one. If you are a team that deals with a lot of teams in your division that use a 3-4 defensive scheme, then you would be very smart to draft this kid early in the process. He is a powerful, confident kid and in that scheme, he will be as impactful as Nick Mangold has been for the New Jersey Jets. Samson has natural pass blocking abilities and although he is a powerfully built player, he is an excellent pass blocking offensive lineman. I say this because when you look at him, you think automatically that he is going to be a better run blocker than pass blocker, but that cannot be further from the truth. Because his hips are so wide, it’s easy for him to set himself with strength and quickness into a perfect pass blocking stance. All he has to worry about is a quick move laterally to help out with a double team or hand fighting the bull rush, which is another techniques that he does almost naturally. The only question I have is how well does he handle playing in cold weather? That is a big question for a kid coming from the big island! I’m just not sure how a kid from Hawaii is going to handle playing for a team in New Jersey, Chicago, Buffalo, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, or any other cold weather team, which could affect where this kid is drafted as well! If your team drafts him, cold weather or not, don’t worry. He will be a good Center and start right away.

Roh and the NYGiants select:
http://www.gazettetimes.com/content/articles/2006/10/01/sports/top_story/osu2.jpg

Sabby Piscitelli S Oregon St
63, 225, 4.5

STRENGTHS
Sabby is an excellent athlete and is a very smart player. He has very good size, strength and speed to play the safety position. Sabby excels in pass defense and shows very good leadership skills. His cover skills will help the team that drafts him to take on those big WRs one-on-one the closer the opponents gets to the end zone. Sabby has enough speed and smarts to be used as a single free safety and will be an intimidating presence on the field for a QB who wants to throw deep to take advantage of a single safety defense with play action. Sabby can also cover those pass catching TEs and big slot receivers; he will be the reason a team starts to get a lot of coverage sacks. He reminds me of Jason Sehorn (former S Garden St Giants). He also has the same type of talent that Ko Simpson (S Buffalo Bills) had coming out in the draft last year.

NEEDS TO IMPROVE
Sabby is not a great tackler. He is a good, solid tackler but he is not a linebacker-type tackler. I would not move him to OLB position just because of his size. Im sure he will try to improve his tackling. He will have more impact as a safety.

TALENT BOARD ROUND: 2
If Sabby were a head up, wrap up, squeeze and drive tackler, he would be a 1st rounder for sure. He is not an OLB because the closer he is to the line of scrimmage, the more you magnify the fact that he is more of a catcher than an attacker. Dont get me wrong, you can use him in the box to help stop the run, but dont look for him to put anyone on their backs - he is not that type of tackler. Sabby reminds me a lot Jason Sehorn and is about as fast and as quick like Jason was. I have no doubt that he might be able to handle some return duties like Jason did also. Sabby is very smart and has a way of getting into the head of a QB, which is something that cannot be measured. Last year, Ko Simpson did not get drafted until the fourth round, but he started every game as a rookie and I suspect Sabby might have the same thing happen to him. I also suspect that Sabby will have the same impact for the team that drafts him as Ko has had for his team this year. Go look at the stats and you will see that not many teams passed deep on the Bills last year and they used Ko in a lot of single safety formations so that Whitner could help out in run defense. Sabby could have that same type of impact for the team that drafts him this year.

With the 108th pick in the OM draft......Green Bay selects:

QB, Troy Smith, THE Ohio State University

Height: 6-1 | Weight: 215 | 40-Time: 4.60

Strengths:
Very athletic with great speed for the position...Arm is more than adequate and he throws a nice ball...Moves well, can scramble, throw on the run and hurt teams with his feet...An accurate passer who minimizes his mistakes and doesn't throw a lot of interceptions...Became a leader as he got older and is well respected by his teammates...Has a solid build and is tough to tackle...A gamer who steps up in the biggest situations...Really developed as a passer in '06 and is still improving. Notes:
Heisman Trophy winner...An older brother, Rod, played guard at Ohio State in the early 1990s, and another brother, Andre, played at Bowling Green...Played for the famed Glenville (Ohio) program in high school where he was coached by Ted Ginn, Sr...Overcame a rough upbringing...Was found guilty of misdemeanor disorderly conduct which led to him not starting the critical Texas game (a loss) in 2005 and was also suspended for the Buckeyes Bowl game in 2004 for taking money from a booster...If he were a little taller Smith would probably be a Top 10 pick but his lack of height is going to be a concern and will likely push him down draft boards.

Pick was made at 8:15 am mtn time. I tried to get on yesterday but it wouldn't let me on. Sorry for the delay.

Carolina takes what they believe is the second or third best LT available.

James Marten - Boston College - 6'7" 307

After Levi Brown's performance at the combine, it appears he will be a RT. Marten had an excellent combine and was singled out by the announcing crew several times. He showed much more athleticism than in Scott Wright's evaluation below. In watching BC games he has been consistently very good in pass protection


From Scott Wright: http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/ot/jamesmarten.html

Strengths:
Has good size with long arms and a big frame that he can bulk up further...Tough, physical and aggressive...Has good balance...He makes terrific use of his hands and locks on pretty well...Gets a solid push...Versatile...Smart and a hard worker.

Weaknesses:
Is not a great athlete...Does not have great strength...Needs to play with better leverage...Will have to learn to bend at the knees more...Struggles in space...Is not very mobile....Doesn't have great feet...Lacks explosiveness...Limited upside.

Notes:
Played left guard earlier in his career but moved to left tackle to replace Jeremy Trueblood as a senior...Typical B.C. offensive lineman who won't impress you with his physical tools but gets the job done on the field...Not as good of a prospect as guys like Trueblood or Marc Colombo were but is cut from a similar cloth...He will likely project to right tackle and should at the very least be a quality pro backup

With the 116th overall pick, Seattle is proud to select Baraka Atkins, DE, University of Miami.

http://media.scout.com/media/image/17/170475.jpg

Strengths: Quick, light-footed big-man. Projects nicely as a 4-3 base end, and has flashed a very nice power/speed game and surprising quickness, at times. Has the versatility to move inside, as well.

Weaknesses: Major enigma, in terms of consistency. Routinely dogged for an inconsistent motor. Benched at times.

Summary: Seattle needs a depth end for the left side of their line. Fisher is over 30, and while he's still an effective player they have little to no depth behind him. Atkins also offers interior depth.

While he may be a bit of a reach here, I think he possesses a nice degree of upside. And, with the major run on DE's in this draft, I didn't feel comfortable waiting or trading down.

Sorry for the lateness of the pick. I haven't been able to get back to the PC since last night!

With the 115th pick in the mock draft the Pittsburgh Steelers select:

Kyle Young, C, Fresno State

Height: 6-5 | Weight: 330 | 40-Time: 5.40

Pros: He is very strong, powerfully built C-G with good hands and moves somewhat laterally with good technique. This guy cannot be moved! He can take on two at a time and doesn't give up any ground. At 6'5 350lbs, he is a force to be reckoned with and can play both C and G.
Cons: Could use more technique bending at the knees and needs to work on his foot work at the next level. Needs to get more of a consistent mean streak in him.
Overall: Very interesting prospect who is a first day draft pick. Second or third round.

Also:

Kyle Young C 6'5 330 Fresno St.
By: Robert Davis

Kyle Young has steadily improved as a Bulldog, to the point that he is now considered the top center in all of college football. He went from a freshman AA, to 2nd team All WAC as a sophomore, and 1st team All WAC as a junior, and now heads most preseason All American units.

As a center, you cannot find a better prospect. Young possesses all the physical qualities you look for, along with all the intangibles. He has excellent size, and the strength to dominate players at the point of attack. He also shows the athleticism and agility to get out and block on the move. Young is as durable as they come, having started 39 straight games for the Bulldogs. With his experience and intelligence, he should be ready to start from Day 1 in the NFL. With his size and talent, he also brings the versatility to play guard at the next level, and has actually worked out at tackle in practice during his college days.

It is definitely nit picking, but the only flaw with Young at center is that he may be a bit tall, and comes out of his stance upright at times.

Kyle Young is a rarity: Hes a legitimate first round center prospect. He has the size and talent to play multiple spots, and is NFL ready. Young may have many trips to Hawaii in his future.

And:

Strengths:
Has terrific size...Extremely strong and physical...Tough and aggressive...Stout at the point of attack and will not get pushed around...Has a nasty demeanor and a killer instinct...Versatile...Durable...A hard worker and coaches speak highly of his intangibles...Excellent awareness and a high football IQ...Has a lot of experience.

Weaknesses:
Not a great athlete...Lacks top speed and quickness...Won't do much in space or get to the second level...Is not light on his feet...Has short arms...Doesn't always play with great leverage...Won't be a fit for every scheme...Intelligence an issue?

Notes:
A four-year starter...Was suspended for academic troubles in November of 2006 and missed the remainder of his senior season...Could also project to right tackle or guard at the next level...A classic mauler...Similar in many ways to Minnesota Viking Ryan Cook...Not quite the pro prospect many thought he would be earlier in his career but he is a very solid player who could excel with the right franchise.

Walter Thomas
ODT - NW Mississippi CC

http://img219.imageshack.us/img219/8945/waltervn1.jpg

The Planet Theory, as advanced by former NY Giants GM George Young, suggests that there are only a limited number of human beings walking the planet who meet certain physical specifications.

At 6'4", 370 pounds, with 40 times reported in the five flat range, Walter Thomas is like few other people on the planet.

Here he is next to 6'3", 310 pound Renard McDaniel of Missouri State.

http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/4750/indexzk9.jpg

Of course, you have to wonder why a man with such awesome physical gifts has played such precious little organized football. After leaving Oklahoma State, Thomas transferred to tiny Northwest Mississippi Community College and played in only two games. As expected, he was an absolute monster in those eight quarters of football, registering 16 tackles, 9 tackles for loss and 4 sacks.

For whatever reason, Walter Thomas was little more than a football oddity until recently. You have to question his intelligence and/or motivation for washing out of OSU, but he has shown the persistence to continue following his dream of an NFL career.

Thomas really opened people's eyes at the Texas vs. Nation practices, giving highly rated Ben Grubbs all he could handle, and absolutely destroying Jonathan Palmer in a one on one matchup.

Some quotes:

Walter Thomas, DT, NW Mississippi CC - Unstoppable when he got a good push, showed a good spin move (!) and was astoundingly nimble for a guy his size (think Gabe Watson at his best during Senior Bowl practices last year - dancing bear). Seemed to tire, and then get second wind. Didn't excel on every play but was dominant when he did. Got lots of individual coaching and encouragement. Talk of the scouts in the stands. Jags practically drooling on him.

Walter Thomas, DT, North Mississippi CC - Your star of the weigh-in. He drew reactions ranging from gasps to smiles to a simple shake of the head in disbelief. Thomas is 6'4" 370. He's got some baby fat, but he's a legit 335 without it, and that's without the benefit of a formal weight training regimen - just natural size. His upper body weighs more than I do, and I love fried food. His body screamed NFL.

With the 124th pick of the OM 2007 Mock Draft the Tennessee Titans pick their very own Claude (Turk) McBride DT/DE Tennessee 6-4 275 4-12 20yd shuttle

Strengths:
Has a decent frame and could still add some bulk...Is very quick off the snap...Has an excellent motor...Mobile with good range...Gets good penetration...Strong and powerful...A very good athlete...Does a tremendous job in pursuit...Superb initial punch...Versatile and can play many roles in a number of schemes....A big upside.

Weaknesses:
'Tweener who is undersized in the middle and not fast enough for the outside...Is still raw and does not have a lot of starting experience...Has trouble disengaging from blocks...Is not a great natural pass rusher or sack artist...Is not stout at the point and will get pushed back...Lacks elite timed speed and a burst...Durability?

Notes:
His real first name is "Claude"...Has experience at both tackle and end and could project to either at the next level...Was buried on the depth chart behind three future pros (Jesse Mahelona, Justin Harrell, and Tony McDaniel) early in his career and didn't really get an opportunity to shine until 2006 but he made the most of it and had an outstanding senior campaign...Best fit at the next level could come as a defensive end in a 3-4 scheme...Could get chosen earlier than the tape would suggest due to his vast potential...Intriguing prospect whose stock is on the rise

Allen Barbre
OG
Missouri Southern State

6'4 (6040),
300lbs
4.84/4.86 40.

http://www.d2football.com/images/pro_hope/pro%20barbre%20action.jpg


Barbre is very athletic and has speed that most linemen wish they had. He plays on the punt coverage team and has made several tackles this season, showing that he can get down field in a hurry. He will shine on special teams since he has been playing it all year long. He is the type of athlete who can play multiple positions on the line and even excel on special teams. Expect him to make a roster as a utility player until he can develop into a quality pro at a certain position

With the 130th pick in the 2007 draft, Tampa Bay is pleased to select:

Kenny Scott, CB, Georgia Tech


Overview

In a draft characterized by cornerbacks in the 5-foot-10 range, NFL teams will be searching for cover men with the height and speed to play with the bevy of receivers above 6-feet so popular in today's pro passing game. In Scott, scouts have just such a prospect. A three-year starter with the Yellow Jackets, Scott has developed into one of the better all-around cornerbacks in the country, averaging 50 tackles, seven passes broken up and two interceptions year.

While Scouts are always interested in tall cornerbacks, Scott is particularly intriguing due to his rare speed and willingness to support the run. Also, in practicing against junior wideout Calvin Johnson every day, Scott has had plenty of experience against talented receivers.


Analysis

Positives: Tall, lean, long-armed athlete. Rare height for the position at 6-1and has the frame to add as much as 20 pounds. At his best in man coverage. Good physical jam at the line of scrimmage and has the speed to run deep. Uses his long arms well to disrupt the timing of receivers as they go through their routes. Has shown good improvement this season at tipping passes away (or intercepting them) at their highest point, taking better advantage of his height and long arms. Comes up strong to support the run and isn't shy about contact. Can be a bit hitter.

Negatives: As is the case with most tall cornerbacks, Scott struggles some with changing directions quickly when mirroring receivers. He is fast enough to still be effective in man coverage, but can be beaten by smaller, quicker wideouts. Better in man coverage due to his long speed and sneaky physicality as he runs with wideouts. Struggles some in zone as he tries to read the quarterback's eyes and will drift from his assignment, creating opportunities for savvy receivers.


Socal took Brown right out from under me and ruined my perfect draft. However, Scott has talent and I think could be converted in time to play the Tampa Two CB. His size, physicality, and Ball skills are there. He will just need to refine his zone awareness and learn how to play within the system. All in all, he is a great CB I think goes in round three at the latest, let alone top of five. In the meantime, he can do ST's and nickel.


CLE and Bronco LB 52 are up, and Socal sucks ;D

With the 142nd selection of the OM NFL Draft 2007 the Tennessee Titans select Justin Durant LB Hampton 6-1 230 4-51 40 yd

Strengths: Athletic prospect with very good top-end speed. Generally reads keys quickly, has good initial quickness and can make plays at the line of scrimmage. Has good range and can prevent backs from turning the corner. Works to the whistle, can slip blocks in space and makes plays all over the field. Generally wraps up upon contact and is a powerful tackler that flashes the ability to deliver the big hit. Gets good depth and can cover a lot of ground when asked to drop into zone coverage. Flashes the ability to change directions quickly, bursts out of cuts and shows above-average man-to-man cover skills. Though lacks ideal ball skills flashes the ability to make the big play in coverage and is a dangerous open-field runner. Times blitzes well, takes the shortest path to the quarterback and closes fairly well. Has experience lining up on the inside and is somewhat versatile.

Weaknesses: Plays too high, lacks ideal lower-body strength and gets driven back at times. Is a bit undersized, can get engulfed and is vulnerable to wearing down in an every-down role, especially when lines up on the inside. Doesn't play with enough of a mean streak, doesn't use hands well and takes too long to shed blocks. Plays with a narrow base and can get knocked to the ground. Played at a small school and there is some concern about ability to make jump to the NFL.

Overall: Durant appeared in eight contests as a true freshman in 2003, missed four games with a hand injury, and finished the year with 32 total tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, and one sack. In 2004, he began a streak of three consecutive MEAC Defensive Player of the Year campaigns when he started 11 games (sat out Savannah State matchup to rest for playoffs) and recorded 99 total tackles, 14 tackles for loss, five sacks, three interceptions (two returned for touchdowns), and one forced fumble. Durant then started all 12 games in 2005 amassing 124 total tackles, 15 tackles for loss, five sacks, two fumble recoveries, and one interception. He completed his collegiate career in 2006 with 98 total tackles, 13 tackles for loss, one sack, and one fumble recovery while playing in 11 of 12 games.
Durant lacks ideal size and he needs polishing as a run defender. There are also some concerns about his learning curve coming from the DI-AA level. However, he possesses the burst, athletic ability and top-end speed to develop into an excellent backup who contributes on special teams in the NFL. Durant is an underrated prospect with early Day 2 value.




Strengths:
A smooth athlete...Has very good range and a burst to close...Pretty good timed speed and quickness...Tough and aggressive...A big hitter...Is fluid in space and solid in coverage...Has a fiery demeanor...Excellent production...Versatile...Hard worker and team leader with top intangibles...Has some special teams potential.

Weaknesses:
Does not have great size and is especially lacking in the height department...Is not as strong as you'd prefer...Needs to do a better job with his technique when it comes to tackling...Average pass rusher...Can be manhandled and struggles to disengage from blocks...Isn't stout at the point...Level of competition is an issue.

Notes:
Brother of former North Carolina quarterback Darian Durant...Played the middle in college but might fit best on the weakside as a pro...Three-time MEAC Defensive Player of the Year...Easily of the premier sleeper prospects available in this draft.

Carolina selects the best blocking tight end in thde draft. Since he has the frame to add weight, a move to tackle is possible in the future:

Matt Spaeth - Minnesota

Height: 6-71/8 | Weight: 270 | 40-Time: 4.85

Official Bio

Strengths:
Has very good size and the frame to get bigger yet...Superb blocker...Knows how to get open and use his body...Great focus and concentration...Extremely reliable hands...Physical and will deliver a blow rather than accept one...A good redzone target...Tough and has proven that he will play through pain...Has been relatively durable for the most part...Smart and a team leader with exceptional intangibles.

Weaknesses:
Average athleticism...Lacks the timed speed and quickness you prefer...Not a big play threat and won't stretch the field vertically...Doesn't provide much after the catch...Needs to play with more consistent leverage as a blocker...Had his college career cut short by injury and it is unclear how healthy he'll be prior to the draft.

Notes:< /SPAN>
Father, Ken, played football at Nebraska and was drafted by the Buffalo Bills...He began his college career as a defensive end...Missed the Gophers bowl game in '06 after he underwent reconstructive shoulder surgery...A great all-around tight end who does everything well but nothing great...He is not the dynamic receiving threat that the pros are looking for these days but could be an excellent backup.

Notes:
One of the most prolific receivers in Fightin' Irish history...Missed most of the 2005 season and redshirted after tearing his right ACL...The type who does everything well but nothing great...Not quite the pro prospect that Maurice Stovall was last year...Projects as a nice #2 or #3 target at the next level and a solid contributor.

Yamon Figurs
OOWR/PR/KR/Gunner
OOOOKansas State

OO.https://www.nmnathletics.com/pics9/200/RG/RGBOZBMBVZZNAJZ.20061001032000.jpg

The 5'11", 175 pound Yamon Figurs will make a huge impact on special teams right away. Not just on punt and kickoff returns, but as a gunner on punt coverage. NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock calls Figurs the best punt gunner in the draft.

Figurs figures to be a 3rd or 4th WR at the NFL level, which is fine. I don't want a specialist who's a starter and Yamon will have his hands full anyway, as our primary return man, and as one of the gunners on our punt coverage team. I also like his potential to stretch the field in our three wide sets. Jay needs someone to test the outer limits of that cannon.

http://img65.imageshack.us/img65/6208/yamonfigurspk1.jpg


His blistering 4.30 was the fastest 40 time clocked at the NFL Scouting Combine.


Returned a punt 76 yards for a touchdown in the Texas Bowl against Rutgers.


Returned another punt 81 yards for a touchdown against Illinois State.


Had a 98 kickoff return for a touchdown against Texas Tech in 2005.


Returned a kickoff for a touchdown in the Hula Bowl, but officials ruled he stepped out of bounds.


Had 30 and 36 yard touchdown receptions and a 52 yard punt return to set up another score to lead K-State to a 45-42 upset against then 4th ranked Texas in November.


First-Team All-Big 12 selection as a Kick Returner.


Raced Devin Hester in track as a prep and beat him.
