Good bulk...Smooth athlete with fluid hips...Is very quick and plays faster than he times...Great hands...Decent instincts with the ability to read and react in a timely manner...Hard worker with solid intangibles...Productive...Has a ton of experience.

Lacks the ideal height that you look for...Does not have great timed speed...Is not very strong or physical...Doesn't get a good jam at the line...Marginal tackler...Sub par ball skills...Questionable awareness...He offers little in the way of run support.

Redshirted as a running back in '03 but he won their Golden Bull Award as the top Scout Team player on offense...Moved to defense in 2004 and became a four-year starter at cornerback...Was overshadowed by his teammate Mike Jenkins but is a fine pro prospect in his own right...Picked on a lot since teams were usually trying to avoid throwing at Jenkins but he held up well...Could project to play in either a man or zone scheme in the pros....Profiles as a quintessential nickel or dime type. <HR><TABLE cellSpacing=1 cellPadding=3 width="75%" align=center><TBODY><TR><TD style="BACKGROUND: url(http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/images/bluegradient.gif) repeat-y" colSpan=13><CENTER>Career Statistics</CENTER></TD></TR><TR style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold" align=right><TD align=left>Year</TD><TD align=middle>GP</TD><TD align=middle>TKL</TD><TD align=middle>PBU</TD><TD align=middle>INT</TD><TD align=middle>YDS</TD></TR><TR align=right><TD align=left>2003</TD><TD align=middle>6</TD><TD align=middle>0</TD><TD align=middle>0</TD><TD align=middle>0</TD><TD align=middle>0</TD></TR><TR align=right><TD align=left>2004</TD><TD align=middle>11</TD><TD align=middle>22</TD><TD align=middle>5</TD><TD align=middle>1</TD><TD align=middle>37</TD></TR><TR align=right><TD align=left>2005</TD><TD align=middle>12</TD><TD align=middle>39</TD><TD align=middle>3</TD><TD align=middle>2</TD><TD align=middle>10</TD></TR><TR align=right><TD align=left>2006</TD><TD align=middle>13</TD><TD align=middle>49</TD><TD align=middle>9</TD><TD align=middle>7</TD><TD align=middle>8</TD></TR><TR align=right><TD align=left>2007</TD><TD align=middle>13</TD><TD align=middle>55</TD><TD align=middle>11</TD><TD align=middle>6</TD><TD align=middle>164</TD></TR><TR style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold" align=right><TD align=left>Totals</TD><TD align=middle>55</TD><TD align=middle>165</TD><TD align=middle>28</TD><TD align=middle>16</TD><TD align=middle>219</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

The Baltimore Ravens select:

Carlton Powell, DT, Virginia Tech
Height: 6-2 | Weight: 292 | 40-Time: 5.07

Projected Round: 5.

A pretty good athlete....Above average speed and quickness...Does a great job of shedding blocks...Solid instincts and awareness..Is strong and can be stout at the point of attack...Solid versus the run...Gets some penetration...Decent experience.

Plays with poor leverage...Is not very mobile and lacks great range......Not very explosive...Lacks a burst to close..Gets manhandled at times..Average production.

Was essentially a three-year starter in the ACC...Good all-around player who can be effective as a pass rusher and against the run...Is not very flashy but he does everything well...Has the talent to play at the next level, even if only as a backup.

04-11-2008, 08:45 AM
Sorry I'm late folks... been TDY this week and will be gone next week too. I need Arkansas Bronco to take over for FA!!!

The Falcons final pick:

Brian Witherspoon
Height: 5-10 3/8 | Weight: 175 | 40-Time: 4.29

A smooth natural athlete...Blazing fast with rare timed speed...Has an outstanding burst to break and recover when beat...Very fluid hips and flips them well....Great leaper...Terrific hands and can be a playmaker...Lots of potential as a return man.

Did not play against top competition...Isn't very strong or physical....Needs to bulk up and add weight...Sub par tackler...Struggles to get a jam at the line...Lacks top instincts and awareness..Is raw in terms of technique and will need a ton of work.

Say hello to my practice squad, but you can't teach 4.2 speed!

With the 217th pick in the 2008 NFL draft the Dallas cowboys select:


Michael Cox, FB, Georgia Tech

Strengths: Plays with a mean streak, explodes into blocks and flashes the ability to knock defenders back. Keeps head up, shows adequate not great lateral mobility and does an adequate job of scraping along the line of scrimmage when zone blocking. Plays with a good motor and is always looking for someone to hit. Sinks hips, has excellent size and can hold ground when asked to help out in pass protection. Shows good awareness and can pick up the blitz. Attacks thigh of defender when goes low and is an adequate cut blocker. Stays focused and rarely drops passes should catch. Appears to read defenses well, can locate soft spots when sees zone coverage and uses wide frame to shield defenders from the ball. Runs adequate routes and gets head turned around quickly. Stays alert and works back to the quarterback when the protection starts to break down.

Weaknesses: Appears stiff in space, can lose balance when forced to change directions quickly and has problems getting into position at the second level. Stops driving legs too much, doesn't get great hand placement and has some problems sustaining blocks. While tough and can pick up yards after contact doesn't have a lot of experience carrying the ball and is a raw runner as a result. Lacks the burst to turn the corner, doesn't show a second gear when gets into space and isn't much of a big-play threat. Doesn't have great body control and is going to have problems adjusting to passes thrown outside frame. Missed 2006 Duke-game with an injury, has had some shoulder problems and durability is a concern.

Overall: In four years at Georgia Tech (2004-'07), Cox started 28 of his 47 games. He finished his career with 10 carries for 63 yards (6.3 average) and 30 receptions for 217 yards (7.2 average) and a touchdown. Cox missed one game in 2006 because of an injury, and he underwent offseason shoulder surgery that kept him out of 2007 spring practices but didn't cost him any games. Cox has the size and power to develop into an effective lead blocker in the NFL. He also has proven to be a reliable short-yardage pass catcher. On the other hand, he offers little as a runner, he has to sharpen his blocking technique and he will never be a threat in the passing game. Cox has very limited upside which is why he projects as a late-round pick or rookie free agent.

Cox should develop into the kind of snowplow fullback the Cowboys haven't really head since Moose Johnson retired. While their spread offense won't take advantage of him the way the Cowboys used to rely on Johnson it'll make getting short yardage easier and the thought of having to stop Cox as a lead blocker and then tackle Marion the Barbarian will keep linebackers across the league up at night.

Arkansas Bronco

<TABLE class=tablemed2 cellSpacing=1 cellPadding=3><TBODY><TR><TD>Strengths: A one-cut downhill runner with good size, quickness and power Displays very good vision. Runs under control. He is a shifty and slippery runner that finds ways to slip into small holes for a bigger back. Shows good initial burst and hits the hole hard. Runs with very good pad-level. Knows when to lower his shoulder and initiate contact. Picks up lots of yards after initial contact. In brief views as a receiver he does display soft hands. Caught the ball very naturally throughout week of combine. Gets upfield quickly and can run over smaller DB's when he gets the ball in space. When in position, he displays the size, strength and toughness to effectively pick up the blitz in pass pro.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal top-end speed. He's a shifty runner but he doesn't display ideal stop-and-start quickness to consistently exploit the backside crease. Doesn't display much of a second-gear in the open-field. Will never be a homerun threat. Misses too many assignments in pass pro, which is evident on film. Will go the wrong way on play-action and will look confused on blitz pickup too frequently. Not very experienced as a receiver. Lacks ideal route-running skills and isn't much more than a reliable short-yardage option. Mental capacity and maturity are significant concerns after he failed to stay eligible during consecutive seasons in 2004 and 2005. Durability is an issue after finding out his knee injury in 2006, which initially was thought to be a sprain, was a MCL tear. Also missed two games with an ankle injury in 2003.

Overall: Washington played in 20 games in 2003 and 2006, rushing for 809 yards and nine touchdowns on 176 carries (4.6 average). He redshirted the 2004 season after being declared academically ineligible and remained ineligible in 2005. He had his finest season as a senior, delivering 969 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns on 195 carries (5.0 average), plus seven receptions for 59 yards (8.4 average) and two TDs. Washington missed six games in 2003 after suffering a right ankle sprain and sat out the 2007 season opener because of a right shoulder sprain. Washington's career at USC saw plenty of peaks and valleys. He comes with a good amount of baggage, including major academic problems, some durability issues and a couple trips to Pete Carroll's proverbial doghouse. There's no question those red flags will cause Washington to slip during draft weekend. But some team could get a steal in Washington as a mid-to-late round pick because he's far more skilled than most want to admit. Washington is an extremely talented pure runner with good vision, power and burst. He also catches the ball very naturally and has potential to contribute in the passing game and on kick returns in the NFL. If decides to work at it and keep out of trouble at the next level, Washington could emerge as one of the surprise contributors from the 2008 draft class.

IFMPW did not get his pick in within the alloted time, and we need to move on to the UDFA round. So the San Diego Chargers select:

Jonathan Wilhite, CB, Auburn

Height: 5-91/2 | Weight: 185 | 40-Time: 4.38

Official Bio

Good athleticism...Great speed and quickness...Excellent feet...He has fluid hips to turn and run in coverage...Pretty tough and physical..Has good body control...Very aggressive with a terrific motor...Has a lot of experience against elite competition.

Average height and bulk...Poor awareness...Lacks a burst to close..Sub par hands and ball skills...Doesn't make many big plays...Not a great tackler...Work ethic has been questioned..Needs technique work...Has durability issues...Upside is limited.

Transfer from Butler County Junior College...A three-year starter in the SEC...Was overshadowed by David Irons and Patrick Lee during his college career but he's a fine pro prospect in his own right...He probably profiles as more of a nickel or dime type at the next level...Underrated player who could be a nice late round surprise.

04-12-2008, 02:09 PM
Congratulations to JCMElway for conducting a great mock draft for the Orange Mane. Your hard work is much appreciated -- make sure that you all give this man some rep!

I'll have the details for the UDFA portion of our draft posted no later than 24 hours from now (sorry, but real-life work is going to delay my preparations for a bit) -- basically, we'll be keeping the same format as last year's. Be watching this space for details soon....

Yea, JCM was great running this. I vote for him to do it from now on. He is very open minded and fair with how he runs the draft. Great job man!

I didn't do too bad. Every one of the players I picked for the Jets is still in the NFL going into season two.
