Just a reminder, here are the rules:

--We do all 7 rounds. There will be a 12 hour time limit for each selection.

--If you think you may not be around when your pick comes up, please PM a priority list to myself, Hawk's Boys, and Eddie Mac. We will make sure to get your pick in for you.

--Trades are definetly IN. Trades that both parties agree to just need to get PMed to myself or anyone helping me run the draft, just so we can change the order.

--As far as having more than 32 participate, that's fine. Any owner who would like to have a co-owner can PM them after the original 32 owners are set. Unfortunatley, not everyone will be able to participate. Nature of the Foneco I'm afraid.

-- If owners wanted to trade teams that would be swell. Just let me know.

--After you post your selection, PLEASE POST THE TIME YOU MADE YOUR SELECTION, AND WHAT TIME ZONE YOU ARE IN. That's very important because it helps us know when the next team is on the clock. Also, if you could PM the next GM and tell them that they are on the clock, that's very helpful to myself, Hawk's Boys, and Eddie Mac, just in case we're not around.

--Please leave trade discussions, praise, ridicule, and conversations about your picks in the conversation thread.

Alright....

Considering I may not be able to get on here tomorrow... Here we go!

With the 1st pick of the 2008 OM Mock Draft The Miami Dolphins select


Chris Long (DE)

Height: 6'4"
Weight: 275
College: Virginia


Analysis
Positives: Has long arms and large hands, with good upper body muscle tone, tight waist and hips and shows good lower body thickness...Uses his long reach well to keep blockers away from his body, also utilizing it, along with good timing and leaping ability to bat down a fair share of passes at the line of scrimmage...What sets him apart from most young defensive ends is his keen knowledge of the game and his uncanny ability to read block pressure and quickly locate the ball...Quick-twitch athlete who shows good quickness, agility and flexibility, showing good knee bend...Builds to top acceleration nicely in long pursuit and shows good redirection skills in his pass rush off the edge...Lacks an explosive burst, but has good leverage and reach to separate from blocks and close on the quarterback...Shows solid football instincts and is able to learn and retain information easily, showing the quick instincts to locate the ball through trash...Plays and practices hard and with a purpose, showing good effort and toughness throughout the play...Leads by example, as well as with his voice, as the coaches encourage the younger players to emulate his great work ethic...Can handle tough coaching and is harder on himself than the staff is when he fails to make a play or blows an assignment...Has active hands and feet, showing outstanding quickness off the ball and natural movement ability to close...Comes off the snap with good pad level, getting into the blocker quickly with a solid hand jolt to rock the opponent back on his heels (needs to do a better job of staying on the lead blocker to clog the rush lane, though)...Has very crisp plant-and-drive agility to make quick change of direction moves working down the line...One of his better assets is his lateral agility...Has a good feel for blocks and knows what to do to avoid in pursuit...Defends the run well, using his hands and extending at the point-of-attack, as he has the hand punch to quickly shed blockers and has developed into an efficient, physical, hip-roll tackler working in-line... When he extends his arms (and keeps them active), he plays with good leverage and can hold ground at the point of attack vs. the isolated blocker (struggles some vs. double-teams)...Has better leverage than strength to anchor, knowing how to use his lower body...Has enough size and strength to hold up at the point-of-attack and the flexibility to sit in the crease and hold his ground or get off blocks...When he keeps his hands inside the framework, he can keep separation from the blocker (exposes his chest when his hands get too wide)...Moves very well laterally and displays good effort in pursuit, as he has the knee bend to slip by blockers in-line...High energy type who had better success disengaging in 2007 than he did in the past, thanks to clearing his feet and chasing hard to run down plays in pursuit...Shows adequate flexibility to fight off cut blocks (needs to protect feet better still, but has improved), as he takes good angles when pursuing downfield...Physical tackler who can bend, roll his hips and drive through the ballcarrier...Might not generate explosive hits, but he has the strength to push the pocket...Makes a good effort to arm tackle...His above average lateral quickness is utilized well in his back-side pursuit...Does a good job when asked to wrap up and drag down the ballcarrier in space and he has the functional strength to generate inside pressure vs. offensive line-man's outside shoulder...Shows good body lean coming off the snap and has developed a solid inside counter move to generate pressure...Has the upfield speed, along with swim and rip moves to go with the inside counter and bull rush (asset needed for a potential move to defensive tackle)...Uses flexibility and a good burst to collapse the pocket and displays the quick hands and feet, along with good hip-flex to turn the corner on edge rushes...Can keep separation vs. the run when he uses his hands to control, and when he takes dead aim on the quarterback he shows good intent to get there...With his leverage, he can beat the blocker in and out to close on the passer, as he demonstrates good hand placement and the ability to separate from blockers.


Negatives: Lacks suddenness off the snap to surprise a lethargic blocker...Best when taking angles to the quarterback, as he does not have the foot speed to take the wide loop in pursuit...Needs to be more active with his hands, especially when executing counter moves, as he struggles to shed when a blocker locks on to his jersey...Susceptible to the low block and needs to do a better job of slipping off double teams (must execute his spin move more)...Might be a better fit as a defensive tackle in a 4-3 alignment, so as not to expose his adequate closing burst...Does not use his reach or counter moves with consistency and can be engulfed by the larger blockers...Plays better on the move (can get stuck on the bigger blockers at the X's).

The Cincinnati Bengals select Derrick Harvey, Defensive End, Florida.

Ht. 6'-5", Wt. 271 lbs.
Wingspan: 82"
Bench: 31 reps
http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c179/gjbronco/harvey.jpg?t=1204223478

Harvey surprised many when he decided not to enter the 2007 NFL draft. He led the Gators with 11 sacks -- the fifth-highest single-season total in school history -- and capped the season off with a three-sack effort in Florida's rout of Ohio State in the BCS national championship game. He also had another tackle and recovered a fumble against the Buckeyes to earn defensive MVP honors. He was projected as a first-round pick by some analysts.

Harvey, however, felt he needed another season to develop -- he didn't begin playing football until his junior year of high school -- and started an extensive offseason training program that paid dividends this past season. He overcame being the focus of opposing offensive lines to amass 49 tackles -- 31 solo -- with 17 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks, which were both team-best totals.

Harvey is simply a beast as a pass rusher, with his speed equal to his strength. He is known for getting great jumps off the ball and his technique is exceptional. He puts the heat on offensive linemen and virtually demands to be double-teamed. While his ability to get in the backfield draws the most raves, he's also solid against the run. Opponents lost 28 yards on 47 running plays to his side last season. The 82-inch wingspan rarely allows escapes for opposing ball carriers and quarterbacks.

An AFC East scout, who asked not to be identified because of his team's media policy, said Harvey "is a much better player" than former Gator Jarvis Moss.

With the 10th pick in the 2008 NFL common draft, the New Orleans Saints select Keith Rivers, LB, USC

http://images.athlonsports.com/d/836-1/USC-KeithRivers.jpg

Analysis
Positives: Has a well-defined frame with thick legs and arms, along with room on his upper body to add more bulk (looks a bit like a strong safety)...Active and aggressive closing on the ball, but needs to show quicker recovery ability when he out-runs the play...Does a good job of keeping plays in front of him, running with a normal stride while showing the ability to quickly accelerate and close on the ball...Has good foot quickness, agility, balance and body control on contact, staying low in his pads to prevent the opponent from slipping off his hits (when he wrap tackles, but has had problems when he takes a side)...Average student, but shows urgency closing on the ball once he locates it...Physical tackler who uses his hands with authority to get to the ball...Hard worker in the training program and is the team leader in the locker room and in practices...Will chase until the whistle and is a heavy hitter once he gets into position to make the play...Has good balance sifting through trash, staying on his feet through trash and bounces up quickly when knocked down...Shows aggressiveness and quickness to step up and take on the runner between the tackles, as well as the ability to stack blockers in one-on-one situations...Best making plays on the move (can be washed out of the play when he tries to battle when stationary)...Does not read keys all the time, but will move and close once he sees the play develop...While he lacks power to split double teams (will get pushed), he works hard to fill the rush lanes...Has enough functional strength to drag the ballcarrier down and will not hesitate to take on the lead blocker in attempts to clog the rush lanes...Uses his hands well to reroute and combat tight ends, showing active hands to control and shed blockers...Has played in a three-point stance earlier in his career and knows how to keep his pads down to gain position...Needs to attack the line of scrimmage more often than he did as a senior, but he does work well through traffic, showing desire and quick acceleration to reach the outside...Can drop in the zone with his head on a swivel, but will get fooled by play-action and pump fakes and does just an adequate job of looking up receivers, but the effort is there...Needs to do a better job of staying in control when tackling, but has enough arm strength to drag the ballcarrier down (likes to arm tackle and take angles)...Has the quickness to run with backs and tight ends in the short-area passing game, using his hands well to reroute...Lacks great anticipation in man coverage, but will accelerate and close when he locates the ball...Can get a good jump on the route, when he does not eye the quarterback too long...Has the leaping ability to compete for jump balls...Will guess at the receiver's routes at times, but he has the hip snap and body flexibility to recover...Uses his hands well to get an edge over the outside shoulder of an offensive tackle in the pass rush and is quick to accelerate to take a wide loop to the passer (fast off the edge to surprise a lethargic blocker, but must not get in one-on-one battles with those linemen, as he struggles to shed when engulfed).


Negatives: Lacks the lower body strength to gain much penetration on the bull rush and will struggle to shed vs. the bigger blockers, especially vs. double-team action...Must use his hands better when fending off blocks and when they get outside his framework, he leaves himself too exposed and linemen then have success locking on, as he loses his anchor and is quickly washed out of the play...Has the quickness to close in a hurry, but will lose sight of the ball in a crowd and must do a better job sifting through trash...Has the loose hips to drop back in pass coverage, but is a bit of a liability here as he is susceptible to pump fakes and will eye the quarterback too long, letting receivers gobble up his cushion...Needs to have a clear path to the quarterback, as he has been exposed for strength issues when trying to shoot the gaps (gets ping-ponged by the bigger blockers, especially when he fails to keep his anchor and narrows his base)...Gets a bit reckless in his pursuit and despite having loose hips, he will take false steps in his recovery...Tries to make the big play on the ball rather than wrap and secure the ballcarriers at times...Has a good burst on the blitz, but is slow to locate the quarterback and will out-run the passer, as he has just adequate stop-and-go action...Needs to improve his wrap-tackle technique, as he will ankle bite at times and fail to attack the outside leg of the runner...Just an adequate student and might have problems digesting a complicated playbook.


Compares To: KENDRELL BELL-Kansas City...Rivers might have garnered lots of postseason honors in 2007, but there was something amiss in his play. He is not the most instinctive open-field tackler and seemed to be favoring his nagging ankle problems, thus limiting his range and pursuit skills. Five tackles behind the line of scrimmage do not warrant first-team All-American honors. He has the frame that you look for in an outside linebacker, along with the quickness, but there are legitimate questions as to whether he has the valid instincts or lower body power to be an every-down player. Like Bell, he can make the big play, but there needs to be more consistency in his play. With a marginal feel for the passing game, especially when working in the zone, the jury is out on this guy, much like it has been on Bell since earlier in his career. Can this be the "boom or bust" pick of the 2008 linebacker class?

Injury Report
2005: Suffered a hamstring strain prior to the Washington game (10/22) that forced him to sit out vs. Stanford (11/05)...Re-injured his hamstring vs. Fresno State (11/19), missing the UCLA clash (12/03).


2007: Underwent left ankle surgery to remove bone spurs in spring camp...Suffered a left ankle sprain vs. California (11/10), sitting out the following week vs. Arizona State (11/22).

The rumor is that New Orleans will sign Asante Samuel at the start of the free agency period, solving their CB problem. Even if they don't, the selection of cornerbacks at the 10 slot isn't stellar, and Rivers is by far the best defensive player left on the board.

Malcolm Kelly was one of those three year players. In other words you knew coming in that he'd only be on campus for three years. At 6' 4", 219 lbs he has the size to be a go to receiver in the NFL. He possesses very good speed but his greatest attribute is the fact that he's got great hands. All three years at OU he would make at least one catch per season that would just leave us in awe. Spectacular became the norm for him.

Unfortunately for Kelly he played his freshman and sophomore seasons during the Adrian Peterson era where Oklahoma was a run first team and by the time his junior year rolled around (2007) he was a marked man facing double and sometimes triple teams every Saturday. His best year as a sooner was 2006 where as a sophomore he caught 62 passes for 993 yards and 10 touchdowns.

I'm not sure that we saw Kelly's full potential at Oklahoma. This is a program that put Mark Bradley (Chicago), Mark Clayton (Baltimore), and Brandon Jones (Tennessee) into the NFL in recent years and I think Kelly has the potential to be better than all of them.

The only question about Kelly is toughness. He missed the last two bowl games due to injury and needless to say Oklahoma definitely missed him. Rumors were that Kelly could have played this year in the Fiesta Bowl but chose not to in order guarantee his health for NFL workouts. Regardless, Malcolm Kelly is a phenomenal athlete and will make someone's draft a success.

With all three of their receivers standing 5-10 or less, the Buffalo Bills are looking for a big receiving target for young quarterback Trent Edwards. For the record, Kelly ran 4.5 as a freshman at OU, and, because of injuries hasn't recorded a 40 time since. The Bills released Peerless Price and view Roscoe Parrish as a slot guy, so adding a starting-caliber WR to play opposite Lee Evans is a good idea. Kelly has the potential to be a special player at the next level, as he combines great size with good deep speed and most importantly, excellent hands.

Vitals: 6'4, 219
Stats: 49 rec, 821 yards, 16.8 avg, 9 TD
Pros: Malcolm Kelly has a deep pool of talent. He has a great frame and good build. Has shown willingness to catch balls in traffic and take a hit. Kelly has good athleticism and big mitts for hands which couple with his concentration, makes him the most sure-handed receiver in the draft. Anything thrown in his vicinity will be his even if it means making a dazzling catch. He can go up and catch footballs over defenders. This ability allows him to flourish in the red zone.

Cons: I think Kelly's stock will depend heavily from his pro day workouts where I really wish to see him run. Keep track of his 10 yard dash and short area quickness where he could disappoint. From what I've seen of him, he could struggle to create separation at the next level. It's the primary reason why he disappears from play-to-play, game-to-game. If he tests well, we know that he can be taught to run much better routes, which would really mean he has infinite potential.

After much deliberation and arguments which led to the subsequent firing of Mike Shanahan, the Denver Broncos select with the 12th pick of the 2008 NFL draft.

RYAN CLADY OT BOISE STATE

Ryan is the best pure LT in this draft. He has good lateral agility and the athleticism to play his position. He has good size and is just as good blocking for the run as he is for the pass. Ryan looks like a smart kid and shows good mental toughness and stamina. He shows some leadership ability through his consistent play on the field. Ryan does an excellent job using his hands when pass blocking and is one of the few LTís in college that does not lunge when he gets beat. He does a good job recovering if he gets beat off the initial rush because he stays on balance and believes in his techniques. Some teams are going to rate Ryan higher on their draft boards than Jake Long.

Ryan needs to watch his weight and he will struggle a bit with the speed at the next level. He will have to work to become quicker out of his stance. But he has the talent to adjust and the work ethic to prevail.

Like I said, Ryan is a pure LT and some teams are going to rate him higher on their draft boards than Jake Long because Jake is more of a system LT. The truth is that you could flip a coin and take either player. They both should become core players and Pro Bowl players for the teams that draft them. I think with Ryan you might have a few more growing pains, but that is debatable also. What I like about Ryan is how smooth he is and how well he stays with his techniques. As soon as Ryan gets used to the speed of the NFL and gets in and out of his stance quicker, he will be an excellent LT. Ryan will have to work more on his quickness in blocking for the run than blocking for the pass, but as I always say, if you want a run-blocking LT, pull a guard. LTís must know how to pass block -- donít worry about how well they can run block. I like this kidís game a lot and the truth is that if I needed a LT it would be hard for me to decide who to pick. A pure LT trumps an LT that might have to be moved to LG. Thatís reality. So donít be surprised if Ryan moves up the charts.

Welcome to the Denver Broncos Ryan Clady and there's no-one who'd wish to welcome you more than Jay Cutler.

Pick made at 5-26pm Eastern Time. Bronco LB 52 and the Carolina Panthers are on the clock.

Kenny Phillips





http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/2005/11/12/sports/12miami583.jpg

Kenny Phillips S 6í2 210 Miami Jr.
By: Robert Davis

Kenny Phillips came to Miami with the expectations of being the next study safety from the U. Early on he showed that those lofty expectations were valid. He was on everyoneís Freshman All American lists after finishing the year with 88 tackles, three for loss and an interception. As a sophomore, he stepped his game up even more, finishing with 71 tackles, six for loss, and four interceptions despite missing the final three games with a broken thumb. Phillips ended his Hurricane career after three seasons, and went out with 82 tackles, six for loss, and two interceptions.

Phillips has it all. From a physical standpoint, he has everything you want. He has excellent size and can match up with just about anyone in coverage. He also possesses the athleticism, quickness, and speed to fly around the field making plays. He is aggressive, active, and willing to do whatever it takes to get to the football. Phillips is a complete safety as he can attack the line of scrimmage in run support and make plays on the football in coverage. He has also earned All ACC honors for his success in the classroom, so he is getting it done off the field as well.

There is not much to dislike about Phillipsí game. He is a rare safety that can do it all and is a legit Top 10 pick. If you want to pick things apart, he can go for the big hit a little too often instead of making the safe play.

Phillips was one of the first players to declare for the draft, and he is an almost certain selection in the top half of the first round. He is a playmaker in the secondary, and has all the skills to develop into a perennial pro bowler.

Pick was made at 2:19 pm Mountain Time.

Mike Jenkins
Position: CB
School: South Florida
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 197 lbs.
40 time: 4.38
Bench: 18 reps (225 lbs.)

Strengths: Does an adequate job of opening up hips, shows a second gear when tracking the ball downfield and has the long arms to occasionally tip away passes from a trail position. Is smooth when forced to change directions quickly, shows adequate burst coming out of cuts and flashes ability to hold own on an island. Times jumps fairly well and is tall enough to compete for jump balls. Active and can effectively bluff blitz. Has some experience lining up at safety, can line up over the slot or on the outside and is versatile. Has experience blocking for punt returns and can contribute on special teams.

Weaknesses: Bounces around too much and footwork is inconsistent. Hasn't shown great upper body strength, doesn't use hands that well and gives away the inside too much. Though reads quarterback's eyes and consistently gets into position to make plays on the ball, lacks ideal ball skills and isn't a playmaker. Fills hard when reads run but doesn't shed blocks well and takes poor angles to the ball at times so doesn't offer much in run support. Charged with misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and opposing or obstructing an officer without violence during the 2007 off-season and South Florida suspended him indefinitely so character is a concern.

Overall: Jenkins has suited up for 38 games starting in 28 of them during his first three seasons (2004-'06) and recording 92 total tackles, two tackles for loss, three interceptions, and 29 passes defended. He was limited in 2004 by an ankle injury. Also saw time at safety that season. Jenkins is fast, athletic and big enough to emerge into a quality starter but his footwork and ability to defend the run need work. His off-the-field incident this off-season is also reason for concern.

Big D isn't concerned about the previous character blip. It was non-violent and a thing of the past. Jenkins is going to provide a long term soultion at corner opposite Newman while also spelling him in the return game and allowing Henry to play nickel and safety which will put Roy Williams on notice.

With the 28th selection in the 2008 NFL Draft the Dallas Cowboys select.....

http://graphics.fansonly.com/photos/schools/unc/sports/m-footbl/auto_action/1259882.jpeg

Kentwan Balmer
Position: DT/DE
School: North Carolina
Height: 6' 4.5"
Weight: 308 lbs.
40 time: 5.28
Bench: 33 reps (225 lbs.)

Strengths: Gets good forward lean in stance and is quick enough to make plays in the backfield when lined up at tackle. Takes sound angles to the ball and makes plays in pursuit. Plays with a good motor and always seems to be around the ball at the end of the play. Generally wraps up upon contact and is an adequate open field tackler. Athletic, flashes the ability to redirect inside after setting blockers up to the outside and is a relentless pass rusher. Moves well laterally and runs line stunts well. Shows adequate awareness, times jumps well and he gets hands up when isn't going to get to the quarterback. Can line up at defensive end or tackle and is versatile. Blocked two kicks last year and can contribute on special teams.

Weaknesses: Lacks elite top-end speed for an end and is going to have problems turning the corner when lined up on the outside. Plays too high, hasn't shown great lower body strength and can get driven back when lines up on the inside. Doesn't use hands well and can take too long to shed blocks. Doesn't always drive legs once in position and isn't a powerful bull rusher that can consistently collapse the pocket.

Overall: During his first three seasons (2004-'06) Balmer appeared in 30 games (11 starts) at defensive end and defensive tackle recording 34 total tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, and 3.5 sacks. He underwent right knee surgery following the 2005 season and suffered a sprained ankle at the end of 2006 forcing him to miss two games. Balmer isn't a great fit at defensive tackle or end but his quickness and athletic ability make him disruptive when he lines up inside and he's big and strong enough to set the edge when lined up at end.

We in Dallas love Balmer's size, power, and versatility. Now that Ferguson has been traded we will slot Balmer in currently as our backup across the three DL spots and long term we'll just see how he develops. He has the potential to add some size and play DT, but he'd be a stud 3-4 DE at his current size.

http://www.heraldtimesonline.com/stories/2007/06/30/_ul_jp_fuzzy0630+Z.jpg

James Hardy, WR, Indiana

Strengths:
Phenomenal size with a huge frame and long arms...A terrific natural athlete...Has big, reliable hands and can snatch the ball away from his body...A fantastic leaper with excellent ball skills...Knows how to use his body to shield defenders...Works well in traffic...Can do some damage after the catch...Has pretty good speed for a guy his size...A terror in the redzone...Was real productive...Still has some upside.

Weaknesses:
Isn't very quick or explosive and lacks a burst...May have trouble separating from pro corners...Has some character concerns...Will have to get stronger...Not much of a vertical or deep threat...Just a marginal blocker...Not a great route runner...Is not real physical or aggressive and may lack a football player's mentality...Still raw and will need to be developed...Inconsistent..Is more athlete than football player.

Notes:
Also played on the Hoosier basketball team during the 2004-05 season starting 3 of the 23 games in which he played...Was arrested in 2006 on a domestic battery charge after his girlfriend accused him of hitting her and their son...He only began focusing strictly on football in 2005...A very intriguing physical specimen with rare measurables for the position...Might be a bit overrated since people have fallen in love with his size but in a best-case scenario he could be a Plaxico Burress - type.

His recent 40 time at the combine definately raised his stock. He could be a solid #2 option next to the recently aquired Bruce during his rookie season. His size will also make him a major threat in the red zone, especially on fade routes and "jump balls." He has spoken about his earlier run ins with the law and has taken the steps to both mend the wounds and to distance himself from any trouble since then.


Selection was made at 7:56 CST. Requiem is on the clock.

The Green Bay Packers with the #30 Overall Select

http://i.a.cnn.net/si/2007/football/ncaa/11/06/jayhawks1112/p1_talib.jpg

Aqib Talib, CB - Kansas

With the retirement of Brett Favre, a quarterback should be considered here - but I feel that there will be better value elsewhere. Green Bay has a pretty strong defensive backfield; they're good at safety - and solid at corner, but Woodson and Harris aren't getting any younger.

I really like Talib personally, and think he's a top fifteen, top twenty guy so I think he's definitely worth it here. High character guy, big personality. Has a ton of upside and could be a real good corner for years to come. ^5

With the 31st pick in the draft, the Giants select: Tracy Porter, CB, Indiana. .

(5í11 188 pounds. 4.37 in the 40)

Porter is a player I have watched at Indiana for a few years and have always come away impressed with him. Look for him to be a player on the rise come draft day. Porter has a real nose for the ball with 16 career interceptions. He has the fluid hips that I consider essential for any top corner. Porter will also make an impact on special teams coverage, and as a return man. Porter has that confident, almost arrogant attitude that is needed for the position.

S Dejuan Morgan from NC State was considered at this spot, as was LB Dan Connor from Penn State. If Aqib Talib, CB, Kansas was still there, I would have still selected Porter over him.

Pick was made at 3:55 PM Eastern Time.

The Dave is up next.

With the first pick in the second round the Miami Dolphins select

Sam Baker
Offensive Tackle | Senior | USC Sam Baker

Height: 6-5 | Weight: 305 | 40-Time: 5.15
Strengths:
Has a large frame with long arms and some growth potential...Athletic with terrific feet...Quick, agile and moves well...Very smart with good awareness...Technically sound...Uses his hands well...Plays with pretty good leverage...Great balance...A natural left tackle..Fine character..Has a lot of experience against top competition.

Weaknesses:
Needs to bulk up and add weight...Has to get stronger...Lacks a nasty demeanor and killer instinct...Toughness has been questioned..An average run blocker..Gets pushed back at the point...Not overly powerful...Has some minor durability issues.

Notes:
Father, David, is the commissioner of the Arena Football League and also played basketball at UC Irvine...Brother, Ben, was an offensive lineman at Duke...Was a four-year starter in the Pac 10...Began his college career as an offensive guard in '03...May be overrated and a product of hype to a certain degree...Finesse blocker who won't be a good fit for every team but has an intriguing set of physical tools that could make him a hot commodity on Draft Day...A bit of a polarizing prospect.

With the 33rd overall pick in the NFL Draft...

The Rams are proud to select Dan Connor from Penn State.


http://www.frontiernet.net/~bchaffee/psu2006/images/10wisconsin/connor01.jpg

Dan Connor LB 6í3 233 Penn St.
By: Robert Davis

Connor came to Penn St. with lofty expectations and he has delivered on those, then some. Despite only starting four games as a freshman, he had 85 tackles, 4.5 for loss, a sack, and an interception earning Freshman All American honors. As a sophomore, he had 76 tackles, 5.5 for loss, and 1.5 sacks. It all came together as a junior, where he was arguably the top linebacker in college football. He finished the year with 113 tackles, nine for loss, five sacks, and two interceptions on the year. Connor saved his best for last, as he finished his senior season with 145 tackles, 15 for loss, 6.5 sacks, and an interception.

Connor is an all around standout linebacker. He is a player that can make the big play, but also the type of player you count on to lead your defense and consistently be around the action. He is athletic, and has the quickness and speed to cover in space. The rare trait he has, is that he has a knack for finding the ball and making a play on it that most linebackers do not possess. He also has the toughness and strength to stick his nose in between the tackles and stuff the run. He is the prototypical linebacker, and has everything you look for in a linebacker prospect.

Connor is about as complete a linebacker as you can find, but he could stand to add a few more pounds to his frame. He will need more bulk and strength to hold up at the point attack in the running game against NFL blockers. He is not an athletic freak either, but he is not lacking either.

Connor may be a better prospect than Paul Posluszny who was taken in the second round by the Bills last year.

Pick was made at 11:12 Mountain Time.

<FONT face="Times New Roman">http://wc.arizona.edu/papers/98/199/sundaySpecial/1.jpg
<FONT face="Times New Roman">Career Notes <o:p></o:p>
<FONT face="Times New Roman">Ranks fourth in school history with 15 interceptions, topped only by Chuck Cecil (21, 1984-87), Jackie Wallace (20, 1970-72) and Chris McAlister (18, 1996-98)...His 349 yards on interception returns shattered the school record of 252 yards by Darryll Lewis (1987-90)...His average of 23.27 yards per interception return broke the previous Arizona all-time record of 13.16 yards by Dennis Anderson (12 for 218 yards, 1972-75)...Gained 164 yards on five interceptions in 2007, the most yards gained by an Arizona defender in a season since Darryll Lewis totaled 192 yards on seven picks in 1990...Returned two punts for touchdowns in 2007, one shy of the school record of three, first set by Floyd Hudlow in 1964 and matched by Jackie Wallace in 1971...His five interceptions in 2007 were the most by a Wildcat in a season since Chris McAlister totaled six in 1996...His 14 pass deflection in 2007 were the most by a Wildcat since Michael Jolivette had 20 in 2001.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>

<FONT face="Times New Roman">Analysis <o:p></o:p>
<FONT face="Times New Roman">Positives: Has a developing frame with room to carry additional bulk with no loss in quickness...Possesses the long arms and reach, along with very good timing and leaping ability, to get to a pass at its highest point...Displays natural hands to make the interception and demonstrates good vision and running stride to gain valid yardage after the interception...Runs with a normal stride and shows steady acceleration to reach his top speed...Smart, instinctive player who has demonstrated an ability to learn and retain information, demonstrating the ability to make quick reads and react to the action in front of him...Hard worker in the offseason training program and has improved his overall quickness while competing on the school's track team as a sprinter...Plays with alertness and shows no hesitation in his reactions, making quick and proper adjustments on the field (shows proper timing moves to make plays on the ball in flight)...Competes for the ball and when tackling, will deliver a blow and try to dislodge the ball -- has five forced fumbles during his career...Plays with alertness and is quick to diagnose the play, mirroring the receiver on deep patterns...Maintains position on the receiver in man coverage, whether playing, trailing, covering or allowing cushion on the pass...Has a good feel for zone coverage, adjusting to the receiver throughout the route's progression...Makes plays on the ball, showing vision, instincts, and the ability to anticipate, as he has superb reaction skills, displaying exceptional timing and a break on the play, with excellent hand-eye coordination...Has enough confidence in his closing speed to be utilized on occasion as a blitzer (must come off the edge rather than shooting the gaps)...Snatches the ball naturally on the interception, possessing the hands of a receiver...Shows athleticism while moving to the ball, coming out of his backpedal cleanly, whether using the side-pedal or shuffle technique...Displays the balance, body control and footwork to come out of his breaks cleanly, showing crispness in his plant and drive...Has good ball concentration while extending and catching the pass in his hands, as well as the ability to adjust to the ball over his outside shoulder...Works to play off blocks and close on the ball inside the tackles, but is best when making plays outside the box...Has the loose hips to change direction cleanly, especially when trying to redirect the outside running game back inside...Does not get fooled much by play action, as he won't spend too much time eyeing the quarterback. <o:p></o:p>


<o:p></o:p>
<FONT face="Times New Roman">Negatives: Shows good foot quickness, agility, and body control to turn, but he's not always fluid...Has quickness to accelerate on breaks, but lacks a strong burst and great top-end speed...Has a developing frame, but needs to add more bulk and strength, as he can be washed out of the play by a physical blocker when coming up to make a play in the box...Classroom work is only adequate...Plays with good toughness, but could be more aggressive and show more urgency at times, as he fails to get good hand placement on the receiver...Must get more physical and develop upper-body strength, as he is only adequate in attempts to press, failing to consistently impede the receiver's route progression...Shows good foot quickness and hip turn, keeping tight coverage, but isn't always fluid...Gets turned around at times and doesn't possess a burst or the top-end speed to recover (gets a bit narrow in his base, failing to clear his feet on the move)...Slips on his backpedal plant at times and while he has good acceleration, he lacks a closing burst (does not have the explosive speed to quickly recover)...Active in run support, but his effort in this area is inconsistent, as he does not have the power to deliver blow-up tackles...Hits and wraps up adequately, but fails to generate much power on contact. <o:p></o:p>


<o:p></o:p>
<FONT face="Times New Roman">Compares To: CHRIS McALISTER-Baltimore...Cason's game is similar to that of the Ravens' McAlister, another former <st1:State><st1:place>Arizona</st1:place></st1:State> cornerback. He looks natural making plays on the ball in flight, showing the long arms and reach to get to the ball at its <st1:City><st1:place>high point</st1:place></st1:City>. He does a nice job of keeping plays in front of him, but needs to get more aggressive with his hands, as he lacks the placement and strength to consistently reroute receivers. He has good timed speed, but appears to lack the second gear to explosively close on the ball. Opponents challenged him often in 2007, targeting 73 passes into his area, as they averaged 11.2 yards on their 23 completions, but he has very good timing and ability to deflect the pass, obvious by the 50 passes that his coverage assignments failed to catch.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>

<FONT face="Times New Roman">ExpatFan’s Notes: I had Cason ranked as my #3 cornerback, behind Cromartie-Rodgers and Jenkins, and roughly 20<SUP>th</SUP> overall. I really started sweating it when Talib and Porter went off the board, so felt that I needed to jump up a few slots to make sure I got him (bpc had also clued me in that he was a Cason fan). As far as I’m concerned, this makes my draft, the rest is gravy….<o:p></o:p>

With the 41th selection in the NFL draft The Bills take....

http://media.scout.com/Media/Image/50/502476.jpg

Jerod Mayo is an excellent tackler and a hard hitter, seemingly in on every play. In fact, probably the hardest hitter I've seen on Vol defense since Al Wilson. He was a leader on defense all year.

He was part of a defense that held Knowshon Moreno and the Georgia offense to under 70 yards rushing. In the SEC Championship Game, one of the hardest hitting games I've seen in a few years, Mayo was the leading tackler. He doesn't just hit, he pops. He followed that up with another stellar performance in the Outback Bowl, another hard hitting game by the Vol defense. The guy has a nose for the ball and wraps up!

<object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/yPYqlT1DB-s"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/yPYqlT1DB-s" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>

As for the padding numbers, I haven't heard of that. The secondary was so bad on the road which may account for lower tackle numbers for the d-line. QBs abused the Vol secondary away from Knoxville especially in the UF and Bama games.

With the 44th pick in this years draft, the Chicago Bears select Jamaal Charles. Running back. Texas.


With Williams in the fold we feel we should be in good shape at left tackle for years to come. Now, with that taken care of, we feel like our offense would benefit tremendously from getting a player in the backfield who offers explosiveness. We feel Jamaal Charles can be that player. Additionally, we feel he can put on 10 lbs without sacrificing much if any speed and that his past problems with fumbles is something that can be corrected.

We also considered Felix Jones and Chris Johnson but felt that when looking at the balance of the season, we felt Charles provided us the higher level of assurance and in particular with what he was able to do in the second half of the season.

Playing in the NFC North, it has become clear that the teams on the rise in our division have good running games that can also provide big plays. You saw that with Minnesota and with Green Bay.

With the 42nd pick the Buffalo Bills select Dre Moore DT out of Maryland

Height: 6-4 | Weight: 305 | 40-Time: 4.86



Strengths:
Terrific size with a big frame...Excellent strength...Great speed and quickness with a burst to close...Plays with a nasty demeanor...Has good range and makes plays in pursuit...Can penetrate and wreak havoc in the backfield...Has the potential to be stout at the point of attack...Could play in multiple schemes...Has some upside.

Weaknesses:
Still pretty raw...Lackluster instincts and awareness...Inconsistent leverage...Does not use his hands well...Pass rush repertoire is limited...He doesn't play up to his weight room numbers..His work ethic and motor have been brought into question.

Notes:
First name is actually Marchondray...He played just one year of varsity football in high school..Could project to either a 4-3 or 3-4 scheme...Has everything you look for physically but just has not been able to put it all together yet, although he did have his best year as a senior...A "Workout Warrior" who will probably be chosen earlier than his film would otherwise indicate...Quite possibly a boom or bust type.

Lawrence Jackson, DE, USC

http://www.pe.com/imagesdaily/2007/11-29/usctlp23cc_1_400.jpg

Strengths:
Has good size and bulk with long arms...Was super productive...Is quick and plays faster than he times...Strong and powerful...Stout and the point of attack and he holds his ground against the run...Instinctive...Technically sound...Uses his hands well...Offers some versatility...Has a ton of experience versus premier competition.

Weaknesses:
Very inconsistent...Does not have very good timed speed...He's not real explosive and lacks a burst...Repertoire of pass rush moves is unimpressive...Motor runs hot and cold...Won't scare anyone off the edge...Has some health/durability concerns.

Notes:
His brother, Keith, was an offensive tackle at Arizona...Was a four-year starter in the Pac-10...Has been bothered by ankle injuries throughout college...A solid but unspectacular base end with a nice, well-rounded game..He may never be an elite pass rusher in the pros but can be an adequate starter...Is not quite the prospect his press clippings would lead you to believe and might be a little overrated...Will play for a long time and could enjoy a pro career similar to that of Kenechi Udeze

I think Jackson will work well as an end in San Fran's 3-4 scheme. the film I saw on him showed that he could really get a push on the guards and tackles and was good at holding his ground on running plays. He will start opposite the recently acquired Justin Smith with their new resigned NT holding the middle. This will allow Lawson and Willis to do their thing and make some plays as well.

Great bulk and a solid frame...Excellent instincts and awareness...Has a non-stop motor...Quick and plays faster than he times..Does a terrific job in pursuit and has a burst to close...Big hitter and reliable tackler..Able to step up and fill against the run...Does a decent job in zone coverage...Smart with a high football I.Q....Tough and strong...Hard worker and team leader with top-notch intangibles...Productive.
Could play in either a 43 or a 34 defensive scheme...Contributed mainly on special teams as a true freshman..Began to emerge as a sophomore but really burst onto the scene as a junior in 2007 when he was named an All-American and the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year...Might not have all the physical tools you look for but is just a football player..The type who won't be a 1st rounder but will play like one.

Notes:
A three-year starter in the ACC...Began his career as a defensive end...Played the middle in college but many are projecting him to the weakside at the next level...A talented playmaking linebacker with solid physical tools and a well-rounded game

Official Bio

Strengths:
Good size and a big frame...Strong and tough...Physical and aggressive...Stout at the point of attack...Gets a great push in the run game...Pretty good mobility and can get to the second level...Will engulf and dominate opponents..Real smart with great awareness...Durable and has a ton of experience...Hard worker and leader.

JCMElway PM'ed myself and the other assistants in this game to let us know that he won't be on much before 7pm most days (guessing CST), so expect his pick shortly after that.

That means you guys on deck, SouthStndJunkie, The Dave, and Florida Bronco, have your picks ready and be on here this evening if you can and we should be able to get a good start on the 3rd round tonight.

Also, DBroncos4Life is well in default on his pick. 400 HZ, BroncoBuff, and Chaz get first dibs. Whichever one of them gets a PM to me first gets to step in. I'm sending PMs to all three of you respectively as I post this.

OK, the Baltimore Ravens select:

Erin Henderson, LB, Maryland

Strengths:
Has good size and bulk...Real aggressive and plays with a nasty demeanor..Great instincts and awareness...Has decent range and does a nice job in pursuit...A big hitter and reliable tackler...Very good change of direction skills...Can hold his own in zone coverage...Versatile...Hard worker...Excellent intangibles...Nice bloodlines.

Weaknesses:
Has battled a number of injuries in college and durability is a huge concern...Plays too tall...Has trouble taking on and shedding blockers...Does not have elite speed or athleticism and looks stiff...Has to get stronger..Lacks fluid hips and has trouble matching up in coverage...Is not overly stout at the point...Upside may be limited.

Notes:
Brother, E.J., was a two-time consensus All-American and ACC Defensive Player of the Year ( 2001-02 ) who won the Butkus and Bednarik awards while at Maryland and currently plays for the Minnesota Vikings..He actually began his college career as a quarterback....Redshirted in '04 and then missed the entire '05 season after tearing his left ACL...Projects outside in a 4-3 defense or inside in a 3-4..Not quite the prospect his brother was coming out of college but he's a real good all-around 'backer who will be an above average NFL starter as long as he can stay healthy.

With the 63rd pick, the Giants select: Mario Manningham, WR, Michigan

Height: 5-11 3/4

Weight: 181

40-Time: 4.59-4.60

WR was not the biggest need for the Giants, but they are sure they got a steal in Manningham, who plays much faster than his combine 40 times.

Early Doucet Wide Receiver | Senior | L.S.U.
Height: 6-0<SUP>1/8 | Weight: 209 | 40-Time: 4.50

Strengths:
Great natural athlete...Has good size and a solid frame...Quick with a burst...Has excellent hands...Very strong and tough...Elusive and it is difficult to tackle him in the open field...Good vision and runs well after the catch...Terrific blocker...A hard worker...Has been a deep threat in college...Can also contribute as a return man.

Weaknesses:
Average timed speed and he could have trouble separating from pro corners...Will have to work on his route running..Must do a better job of beating the jam...Minor durability concerns..Not much experience as his teams top target...Limited upside.

Notes:
Was a top recruit coming out of high school...Finally got an opportunity to start as a senior after being stuck behind future first round picks Dwayne Bowe and Craig Davis...Might never be a true #1 target at the next level but could thrive in a role similar to the one he excelled in at LSU...Profiles as a #2 or slot option in the NFL.

STEELERS FINALLY GET THE CARD FOR #53 UP TO THE PODIUM!


Patrick Lee, CB Auburn

An in-your-face, very physical corner to groom, as we start replacing our aging secondary.

Not a #53 pick really, but at 66 not bad. Would have taken Chilo Rachal at 53 had we got the card up to the podium on time :(

With the 65th overall pick the Rams are proud to select...

Wide Receiver Harry Douglas from Louisville.

http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1191/1372666120_8b44f49241.jpg

By: Robert Davis

Douglas did not have much of an impact as a freshman, but began to showcase his talents as a sophomore. In 2005, he haulged in 27 passes for 457 yards and two touchdowns. Nobody would have expected his junior season though. He became one of the biggest playmakers in college football, hauling in 70 passes for 1,265 yards and six touchdowns, on his way to All Big East 1st team honors. He had another huge year as a senior, finishing with 71 catches for 1,159 yards and seven touchdowns.

Douglas is a big play threat. He is a legitimate threat to score every time he touches the football. He has excellent quickness and change of direction ability. He comes out of his breaks quickly, and has the ability to make defenders miss with the ball in his hands. Once he is in the open field, he has the speed to run away from defenders. Douglas also has some experience returning kicks and could help out on special teams in the NFL.

Douglas has serious size concerns. He has average height and a small frame. He does not have the strength to go over the middle and hold on to the football and he can be overmatched by physical corners.

For a team looking for a quick, playmaking wide receiver, Douglas would be a great fit. He is a big play threat, and that should translate to the NFL well. He may be limited in his overall effectiveness because of his lack of size, but he has the skill to make an impact in the NFL.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2301/1492902379_0ab4404663.jpg?v=0

Lavelle Hawkins, WR, Cal Bears, 5'11", 187

Lavelle reminds me a lot of Laveranues Coles (WR New Jersey Jets). Lavelle is smart with good speed and excellent quickness. He is very tough and will go up and fight for the ball. Lavelle is not afraid to go over the middle and make the tough catch. He is an excellent teammate who knows how to run routes, get separation and will help on special teams the day after you draft him. Lavelle is a sleeper in this draft of WRís that are in abundance. I believe before it is all said and done, Lavelle will be considered one of the best out of this draft class. (Huddle Report)

Terrell Thomas
CB | (6'0", 197, 4.469) | USC

Scouts Grade: 71

Flags: (D: DURABILITY) Player that can't stay healthy(I: INJURY) Coming off injury that may affect play
View by: Player | NCAA School | Position | NFL Team | Flag | All Ranked Players | NFL Draft History
You are signed into Insider and have access to the exclusive draft content below.


Strengths: Is tall, well-built with very good top-end speed. Can be very effective in man and zone coverage. At his bet when playing press-man. Is physical and aggressive, using long arms and strong upper body to take receivers out of their routes at the line. He is instinctive in coverage and knows when to turn and look for the ball. Displays good ball skills and is a natural playmaker. In zone, he does a good job of keeping everything in front of him and reading the QB's eyes. Gives a good effort and is very productive in run support. Fills hard, takes solid angles and is a reliable open-field tackler. Versatility gives him extra value; has experience playing safety and covering kicks. Great intangibles. Coaches and teammates speak very highly of his leadership skills and work ethic.

Weaknesses: Multiple injuries (dislocated right shoulder in 2003 and left shoulder in spring of 2007, as well as torn ligaments in right knee in 2005) generate considerable long-term durability worries. He's instinctive but he also tends to freelance at times and can get in trouble by being out of position. He's quick and fast for his size but he does lack elite fluidity in his hips and will have some trouble keeping with smaller, quicker WR's on double moves in the NFL.

Overall: Thomas arrived at USC in 2003 as a safety but was redshirted after suffering a shoulder injury during fall practice which required surgery. During his first three seasons (2004-'06) he played in 26 contests posting 64 total tackles, three tackles for loss, four interceptions, and 15 pass breakups. In 2005, Thomas sustained a season-ending knee injury in the second game which required surgery. Additionally, he had another shoulder surgery before spring practice in 2007. Thomas is the complete package physically. He is a big, fast shutdown cover corner at his best when working on an island one-on-one. Thomas has some extra value because of his experience at safety and covering kicks. However, his laundry list of injuries will undoubtedly cause him to slip in next year's draft. Thomas must prove capable of staying healthy for a second-consecutive season as a senior in 2007 in order to maximize his draft stock.

With the 70th pick in the 2008 NFL draft, The 49ers select:

Duane Brown, OT, Virginia Tech

http://cache.viewimages.com/xc/78203738.jpg?v=1&c=ViewImages&k=2&d=17A4AD9FDB9CF1937B8C00E1EDBEE48CDF7D7495E577861D 284831B75F48EF45

An upgrade to their line which allows the 49ers the flexibility to move Joe Staley back to LT. Brown's stock has been on the rise lately and will help to solidify a line that gave up over 50 sacks last season and watched Gore's rushing average drop as well.

Pick was made at 10:50 CST. The Denver Broncos (Eddie Mac) on on the clock back to back.

21206

21207Broncos select:

Mike Pollack OC/OG Arizona State


Strengths: Is tall with adequate bulk. Displays solid footwork and a quick first step. Snaps the ball and gets out of his stance almost simultaneously. He's very good in space. ASU uses him on a lot of pulls and traps. Shows good mobility and body control to consistently hit the moving target. He displays nimble feet in the short area and does a nice job of shuffling his feet and mirroring pass rushers. He is a natural knee bender. Also shows a strong, quick and compact punch that allows him to get his hands inside on rushers. Keeps his head on a swivel and shows great ability to recognize stunts  stays home and waits for the outside rusher to enter his gap. Durable player with excellent college experience.

Weaknesses: Overall strength is adequate but not good. Lacks explosive power. Good initial punch but he's not going to overwhelm many DT's or NT's at the point of attack. Needs to do a more consistent job of staying low to create a better anchor versus the bull rush. He's not a finesse player but he also doesn't show as much of a mean streak as we would like to see.


Xavier Adibi LB Virginia Tech


Strengths: Has a quick first step, aggressive and can make plays behind the line of scrimmage. Takes sound angles to the ball and shows sideline-to-sideline range. Is relentless in pursuit and always seems to be around the ball at the end of the play. Change directions well, shows good burst coming out of cuts and can stay with most backs in man coverage. Gets good depth, shows adequate awareness and covers a lot of ground when asked to drop into zone coverage. Catches the ball well, shows good body control when adjusting to tipped passes and is a playmaker in coverage. Has a mean streak and flashes the ability to deliver the big hit. Times blitzes fairly well and has excellent closing speed. Does an adequate job of getting hands up when isn't going to get to the quarterback and has excellent leaping ability.

Weaknesses: Undersized, doesn't anchor well and can get driven back when teams run at him. Though flashes a strong upper body doesn't always use hands well and can take too long to shed blocks. Can have problems controlling emotions on the field and is somewhat prone to getting flagged. Tore a tendon in right biceps in 2004, slowed by shoulder stingers in 2006 and durability is somewhat of a concern.

Overall: Adibi was redshirted in 2003. Over the next three seasons (2004-'06) he appeared in 32 games recording 176 total tackles, 18 tackles for loss, eight sacks, and six interceptions. Adibi missed four contests in 2004 with a torn biceps muscle which required surgery. Adibi isn't stout against the run but he excels in pursuit, he can make plays in coverage and he can get to the quarterback. He is capable of developing into a quality starter who also makes valuable contributions on special teams.

The Rams at the 76th overall pick are proud to select...


Earl Bennett, WR, Vanderbilt

http://media.scout.com/Media/Image/35/356855.jpg


Bennett is a very good posession receiver who is going to stretch a defense with his speed. He has amazing hands, runs good routes, and is tough to bring down.


Personal
Earl Bryan Bennett... Son of Sarah D. Bennett and Earl Frison... Has two brothers and two sisters... Mom works at bakery; dad works for Ford Motor Co... Ranks among top of class academically.. Has volunteered efforts with several efforts aimed at helping local children in inner-city Birmingham community.

West End Head Coach Jim Tyrus
"This school is going to miss Earl's leadership as a student and athletic abilities on the field. You are talking about an outstanding young man who can get it done on the field. "He was so versatile for us. Whenever I needed a big play, on offense or defense, Earl would come through. Whatever our coaches asked of him, Earl was able to help our team. Vanderbilt's football team is getting an outstanding young man and super football player."

With the 78th pick in the NFL draft, the New Orleans Saints select:

Frank Okam, DT, Texas

http://www.bevosports.com/images/texas-espn-cover.jpg

Positives:
Has a thick frame with wide hips and waist, long arms and big hands (needs to get in better condition)...Plays high in his stance and lacks leverage, but does use his body adequately to lean into the blocker and generate a short-area push off the snap...Best when stationary, waiting for the action to come to him, as he can occupy multiple blockers to free up a teammate to make the play...Has good timing and a great reach to knock down passes at the line of scrimmage...Strictly a bull rusher, but can seal the deal when he gets a straight-forward, clear path to the quarterback (not good when taking angles or coming on a wide loop)...Smart player who retains plays well, but sometimes fails to take it from the chalkboard to the field (more due to an inconsistent motor)...Hard worker who competes in the weight room and in practice, but must perform at that high level throughout the game...A team leader with a presence and can be vocal when it's needed...A tough, coachable player who is accountable and dependable and will play hurt...Takes advantage of his size (over techniques) to clog the rush lanes and push back the lead blocker...Big-bodied player who engulfs ballcarriers on contact...Not consistent, but can use his hands well for blocker protection, keeping opponents off his legs...Can be late off the snap, but when he keeps his pads down, he is more effective at creating advantage that he will retain coming off the ball...With a lower pad level, he is better at playing with good leverage, as he seems to be more effective at using his hands to keep his feet free and apply 2-gap pressure...Can stall the double team with leverage and can recover and create a pile when he keeps his hands active and inside the framework...When he keeps his pads down, he can flatten out better vs. double teams...Best when coming off blocks to make inside run plays rather than try to chase down the action on the outside, but doesn't always play off block pressure well...Shows natural strength to lock up and drag down the between-the-tackles runners...Has a decent rip/club move to push the pocket, but is not as effective doing it off twists and games (lacks the ability to open his hips)...Has the strength to throw and jerk blockers with his hands, but needs to be more consistent...When he has the desire and sees the lane, he gets some push on the pocket (not relentless though and needs to become more interested when he sees the target)...Can be an efficient striker in closed quarters and he can level the quarterback with good collision or wrap technique.


Negatives:
Has wide hips, but struggles at times to sink his weight due to a soft midsection (some belly, a little soft, but not fat or sloppy)...Has problems maintaining a low pad level and lacks the knee bend and change of direction agility to give chase going long distances...Fails to generate an explosive first step to surprise a lethargic blocker...Needs to show better flexibility in attempts to leverage and lacks the spin move or bull rush moves needed to create movement and push the pocket (does better with a straight-forward charge than when taking angles)...Gets too narrow in his stance and fails to keep his feet working down the line...Not the most instinctive in recognizing blocking schemes or locating the ball (will run into spots) and is known to throttle down when not involved in the play (needs to play until the whistle)...Has just marginal balance and plant-and-drive agility when trying to redirect...Has good size, but needs to play with more aggression...Fails to generate his weight room strength to the playing field and takes only passive swipes with his arms, as he will get his hands over-extended outside his frame, leaving his chest exposed for the block...Seems to roll off the snap rather than surge, making him a step behind in run force pursuit...Has to use his hands better in attempts to shed, as he fails to gain leverage...Plays too high at the point and can be washed out of the play...Generates a poor anchor vs. the double-team and will get displaced at times...Flashes good hand usage and counter moves in one-on-blocks, but does not do it consistently...Prefers to use his body lean to gain movement off the snap rather than driving through the blocker...Will run and chase at times, but has limited lateral quickness, burst and speed to close...As a pass rusher, he lacks the change-of-direction agility and counter ability to win battles with finesse...Doesn't generate a strong push off the snap to collapse the pocket...Best using his swim move and arm-over technique, but too often he plays his opponent chest-to-chest without working to shed... Has a functional short-area burst to close, but his playing speed is too lacking, especially when he has to close on the quarterback...Not a high motor type and will disappear for stretches...Not an all-out battler and will shut down and get frustrated when his initial move fails... Must do a better job of protecting his chest from reach blocks and use his hands better to fend off cut blocks (on the ground often)...Will tire early in games and needs a better conditioning program in order to play a full 60 minutes.


Compares To:
SHAUN ROGERS-Detroit...These two guys are like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates -- you just don't ever know what you are going to get from them on game day. Okam has shown flashes of dominance in his three years as a starter, but as quick as he is to make a great play, he is even quicker to disappear for long stretches. Neither player will win a foot race. Okam can occupy multiple blockers, but must be more conscious of playing at a low pad level. If the light ever goes on upstairs, he has promise, but poor conditioning, inconsistent play and a less than stellar motor is not something to waste an early-round pick on.

Rationale for the pick:
1. The Planet Theory -- there are only so many people on the planet that are this large.
2. Now that I've taken care of the linebackers and secondary, I need a big-run stuffer in the middle. Okam won't be asked to rush the passer much, just occupy blockers and let Keith Rivers do his thing.
3. A year ago, Okam was considered a top-5 pick by many in the media. The only thing that's dropped him down the boards is effort and conditioning -- I'm betting that we can do something about that.

With the 80th overall selection the Philadelphia Eagles select:

Tony Hills- OT Texas

http://media.scout.com/Media/Image/47/477843.jpg


Hills is an intriguing prospect at tackle. He has an excellent frame, and a body that can pack on more weight without impacting his agility. He is an excellent athlete, with very good feet and lateral agility. He is very good in pass protection at adjusting to a defenders moves to get to the quarterback. Hills has the natural athletic ability to be a standout tackle in the NFL.
Hills has a thin build and will need to get stronger in the NFL to maximize his potential. Durability has also been a concern for him. The knee injury in high school caused some doubt about his future, and in just his second season starting he broke his leg. He will need to show he can be more reliable on the field.
Hills has a lot of upside, and he will probably be drafted in the first two rounds because of his potential. He has the ideal tackle frame and athleticism and some team will fall in love with him. If he can get stronger and stay on the field, Hills could be an excellent NFL left tackle.

With the 85th Pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, The San Francisco 49ers select:

John Sullivan, OC, Notre Dame

http://www.irishpreview.com/pictures/irishpics/jsullivan.jpg

The 49ers are without a true center. This selection allows them to move last years center, Eric Heitman ,back to guard to start there. Sullivan would have been gone by now last year, but a sub-par senior season has caused his stock to drop. His drop in play last year has less to do with his ability though and more to do with the overall pathetic play of the entire Notre Dame team last season.

Sullivan has a lot of experience against some of the best d-lineman in college having lined up against the likes of Branch (last year) and Ellis (this year). He struggles a little with the shotgun snap, but he won't be asked to do that much out of the WCO that they run in San Fran.

With the #90 pick in the 2008 NFL Draft

The Green Bay Packers select:

http://www.insidevandy.com/drupal/files/images/FBS14.preview.jpg

Jonathan Goff, LB - Vanderbilt

The Packers have good starters at linebacker, but little depth. Abdul Hodge has shown promise coming out of Iowa several years ago, but always seems to be injured. Goff's a high character player and a leader on the field. He can play special teams. He's a jack of all trades, but a master of none - but is certainly a player who could challenge Poppinga for a starting position; or at least be a quality depth and reserve player until he's ready to assume a starting role. He's the type of player you hate to doubt.

Official Bio (http://uhcougars.cstv.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/avery_donnie00.html)

http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/images/stars/three.gif </td> <td valign="top"> Strengths:
Excellent timed speed...Has a burst and can separate...Adequate height...Smooth athlete...Good ball skills and body control...A deep threat who will stretch the field vertically...Has soft hands...A hard worker with good intangibles...Productive...Has a lot of experience...Great special teamer who has returned both kicks and punts.

Weaknesses:
Does not have the ideal bulk that you look for...Is not a great route runner...Isn't very strong or physical...Struggles when jammed at the line...Won't do much after the catch...Doesn't work the middle of the field much...He is not much of a blocker.

Notes:
Played in a pass-happy system in college...Is somewhat one-dimensional...He is a long way away from being a polished and well-rounded receiver and will need to be developed but you just can't teach the type of pure speed he has...Will light it up in workouts but might never be more than a #3 or #4 option and a return guy. <hr></td></tr></tbody></table>

Strengths: Is a big, strong receiver. Big target with extremely reliable hands. Consistently catches the ball thrown over his head, can pluck on the run effortlessly and does a great job of securing the ball in traffic. Not afraid to go over the middle. He has functional speed for his size. Most impressive is his ability to get in and out of breaks so quickly, especially for a bigger receiver. Displayed much better initial quickness and burst as a senior than he had in previous seasons. He runs crisp routes. Converted high school quarterback, shows a great feel for running routes, finding soft spots in zone and coming back to his quarterbacks when initial play has broken down. Very tough, competitive runner after the catch. Also shows excellent vision to navigate through traffic  both after the catch and in the return game. Will lower his shoulder and drag smaller DB's for extra few yards at the end of the play. Continues to improve with experience. High character player and hard worker.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal top-end speed. Is not going to consistently get over the top of man-coverage as a vertical route runner. Runs hard and shows good vision but not overly elusive and doesn't display the second-gear necessary to run away from NFL defenders. Needs to improve technique and overall consistency as a blocker.

Overall: Nelson redshirted in 2003 and didn't see any action as a defensive back in 2004. He moved to wide receiver in 2005, appearing in 24 games (20 starts) over his sophomore and junior seasons (2005-'06). He had 84 receptions for 1,216 yards (14.5 average) and nine touchdowns during that span. Nelson was slowed by a knee injury in '06 but wouldn't sit out any games. Nelson was sensational as a senior, delivering 10.2 receptions for 133.4 receiving yards per game (both second in the nation) and 155.3 all-purpose yards per game (20th). His 2007 totals: 122 catches for 1,606 yards and 11 touchdowns; five punt returns for 264 yards (52.8 average) and two scores; and two passing TDs (on four attempts) for 45 yards. Nelson capped off a ridiculously productive senior season with a strong showing at the Senior Bowl. While he lacks elite speed and athleticism, Nelson is quicker than people seem to think and he simply knows how to separate and make plays. He will likely slip to the third round of the upcoming draft but it wouldn't shock us if Nelson spends 10-plus productive seasons in the NFL as a possession No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.

With the 97th overall pick. The Rams are proud to select Cornerback Orlando Scandrick of Boise State.

http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/cb/orlandoscandrick.html
http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/orlando-scandrick?id=2307

http://media.idahostatesman.com/smedia/2007/10/20/22/361-1021_sp_bsu_8strip.embedded.prod_affiliate.36.jpg


I don't have glitzy write up for Orlando, but according to the combine statistics. He had the 4th fastest 40 time overall in the combine. Could be a steal.


Scandrick's official 40-yard dash time of 4.32 seconds - the fourth-fastest among all participants at the Combine - should improve his draft stock.

East Carolina running back Chris Johnson, who torched the Broncos in the Hawaii Bowl in December, ran the fastest time at 4.24 seconds. Cornerback Justin King (Penn State) and Tyvon Branch (Connecticut) each ran 4.31 seconds.

Scandrick also placed among the top defensive backs in the three-cone drill and broad jump.

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said that Scandrick "has been having a good combine" during the network's exclusive coverage.

Scandrick, who said he had good meetings with several NFL teams at the Combine, was projected as a fourth- or fifth-round pick before the event.

His performance could have elevated him in the minds of NFL scouts. Scandrick thought it did.

"I came here and made myself some real money," Scandrick said, alluding to the difference in pay between players drafted in earlier rounds and later rounds.

The Miami Dolphins Select...

Tom Zbikowski S Notre Dame


Strengths:
Hard worker and team leader with excellent intangibles...Very strong and is tough as nails...Smart and has terrific instincts...Does a great job versus the run...Good hands and ball skills...Quick with a burst...Likes to hit and is a reliable tackler..Well built with a very solid frame..A playmaker who can make something happen when he gets the ball...Fiery and intense...Has extensive experience as a punt returner.

Weaknesses:
Shorter than you would prefer...Does not have great timed speed...Is not a great athlete...Can be too aggressive at times...Does not have fluid hips and could be a liability in coverage...Is prone to biting on fakes...Will need to work on his tackling fundamentals...Might be a one dimensional in-the-box type...Has a limited upside.

Notes:
A nationally-ranked boxer who has competed in the Golden Gloves program since age nine compiling a 60-13 record as an amateur and was a Silver Gloves national finalist in '98, '99 and '00...Made his professional boxing debut at Madison Square Garden in New York City in 2006 knocking out Robert Bell in 49 seconds...A option quarterback in high school...Strongly considered going pro a year ago...Probably a little overrated and is certainly not the pro prospect his press clippings would lead you to believe but he should at the very least be a good backup & special teamer.

With the 98th pick of the Orange Mane Mock Draft

The New York Jets select:

Charles Godfrey, CB, 6í0Ē, 207, Iowa

http://media.collegepublisher.com/media/paper818/stills/3888p70z.jpg


Overview
Godfrey entered his senior season barely a blip on the NFL radar, but after a breakout campaign that resulted in Second Team All-Big Ten honors, his stock is on the rise.

A former safety, Godfrey has shown significant improvement in his two years at the position. He is hyper-aggressive in his run support and seems to relish the physical aspect of the game. Godfrey averaged 74 tackles over his two seasons at cornerback, but it is his improvement as a pass defender that has scouts so intrigued. Godfrey showed better recognition as a senior and an ability to make the big play (nine pass break-ups, five INTs).

There are some concerns about his transition -- Godfrey isn't as fast on the field as his timed speed -- which could result in his being moved back to safety in the NFL, at least initially. There are some concerns, but Godfrey's physicality and raw athleticism will result in an early-round selection despite the fact that he remains a bit unpolished. (NFL.com)

Weaknesses:
Plays soft...Lacks a killer instinct and is not aggressive...Has to get stronger...Gets pushed around and doesn't play to his size...Poor technique and he does not play with good leverage...Gets caught reaching too often...Effort is pretty inconsistent.

Notes:
Graduated from high school in just three years..A four-year starter at left tackle in the ACC...Held future #1 overall pick Mario Williams without a sack in '05...Classic case of a prospect who "Looks like Tarzan, Plays Like Jane"...Has all the physical tools you look for but is an underachiever...Could be a steal if some coach can get him to be more nasty

Denver Broncos select

Ahtyba Rubin DT Iowa St 6-3 315

STRENGTHS
Ahtyba is a powerful DT who understands what his job is. He handles the double team very well and can shed a guard or center like a cat playing with a mouse before they eat it. He is very good at shutting down the running lanes between the tackles. Ahtyba has solid lateral agility and does a good job pushing the pocket on passing downs. He is an excellent 2-gap DT and the only true Nose Tackle in this draft. I believe that every team in this draft needs to shut down the run and push the pocket no matter what defensive scheme they run. Thatís what Ahtyba will do for you.

NEEDS TO IMPROVE
He is a big kid so he lacks the stamina to be an every down DT. Ahtyba will not be running any plays down from behind unless he can reach the player in about three or four steps. He does not use his hands very well and if he can improve that aspect of his game he will be able to shed blockers quicker, which will be a big advantage to him.

TALENT BOARD ROUND 3
I like this kid, but of course you guys know by now that I personally put a high priority on DTís like this because I believe that a good defense starts with stopping the run. If New England had run the ball in a two TE formation in the Super Bowl this year they would have won the game. They had the Giants on their heels and they were only behind 10 to 7 at the time. You must be able to have multiple offenses and defenses in this day and age. You must be able during a game to go to a 3-4 defense even if your basic defense is a 4-3. Ahtyba is the only true DT who can play and stop the run in a 4-3 or a 3-4. This kid understands his job and does it very well. He is a space eater. He is the type of player who allows your LBís to make all the tackles. Ahtyba reminds me a lot of Pat Williams (DT Vikings). Pat was an undrafted free agent, so you see the NFL coaches talk a good game when it comes to drafting players who can stop the run. The truth is players like Ahtyba are taken for granted in a draft because he is not flashy and doesnít have the big time stats. So my advice is to look at Robís board to see what round this kid will be rated in and then pray your team drafts him. If they do, you will have a defense that knows how to stop the run and push the pocket; those two things are what makes a defense successful. I call him Ahtyba (little Pat) Rubin because of his similarities to Pat Williams.

Expatfan's comment:
Yeah, I know.... first Frank Okam, now Tommy Blake. But, you've got to admit, the ceiling is high on both of these guys. If they both play up to their potential, I've got a helluva defense now. If only one of them ends up panning out, that's still pretty good return for the middle rounds.

And if both of them bust? That'll suck, but it won't be crippling to my football team, since they're only 3rd/4th round picks (not like a Marcus Nash or Willie Middlebrooks pick....)

Peyton Hillis, FB, Arkansas
Height: 6-0. Weight: 240.
Projected 40 Time: 4.78.
Combine 40: 4.58.
Benchx225: 26. Vertical: 30.5. Broad.


Strengths:
Very athletic...Above average timed speed...A fantastic receiver...Smart with good awareness...Displays good technique...Has a non-stop motor...Extremely versatile weapon...Hard worker with top intangibles..Offers a lot of special teams potential.

Weaknesses:
A bit of a FB / RB 'tweener...Doesn't have the type of bulk that you'd prefer...Just an average blocker...Durability is an issue...Not very powerful...Isn't a great short yardage runner...Not very elusive...Probably won't be a good fit for every scheme.

Notes:
Was used at fullback, H-back, tailback, tight end, wide receiver and punt returner in college...Broke three vertebrae in his back as a freshman in 2004...Also missed time with a deep thigh bruise in '06...Non-traditional, West Coast fullback who can contribute in a number of ways...Could potentially be a poor-man's Brian Leonard.

With the 111th pick of the 2008 NFL Draft, The Philadelphia Eagles select:

Marcellous "Tyrell" Johnson FS/SS Arkansas State

Height: 5117
Weight: 207
40 Yrd Dash: 4.41
20 Yrd Dash: 2.52
10 Yrd Dash: 1.44
225 Lb. Bench Reps: 27
Vertical Jump: 32 Broad Jump: 10'07"

03/19/08 - 03/12/08 - Draft Scout Risers: Johnson may have posted the most impressive -- and least talked about -- workout of the 2008 Combine. Johnson, who goes by his middle name, Tyrell, led all safeties tested in Indianapolis with a 10'7" broad jump and 27 repetitions of 225 pounds, and finished among the top five in the vertical jump (32") and 40 (4.42). Johnson is no simple workout warrior, however. In fact, the perception by many was Johnson would be exposed a bit in workouts. While questions about his level of competition remains a concern, Johnson was invited to the Combine not on the expectation of great workout results, but in recognition of his three consecutive seasons as a First Team Sun Belt Conference pick, including the 2007 season in which he was voted Defensive Player of the Year. -- NFLDS

12/06/07 - The Indians senior safety is the Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year after a season in which he became the conferenceís all-time leading tackler with 363. Johnson, a fouryear starter and four-year allconference pick, finished where coaches said he would when they voted him preseason defensive player of the year in July. A product of Rison, Johnson made the preseason vote hold up with 94 tackles, 58 unassisted, and a team-high 6 interceptions with 1 returned for a touchdown as the Indians finished 5-7. ďThereís no doubt about that,Ē Indians Coach Steve Roberts said of Johnsonís selection. ďTyrell had a great year for us. Breaking the all-time tackle record in the Sun Belt Conference was a huge accomplishment. He played very effectively this year. He also broke the all-time return yardage [record ] in interceptions in the conference [209 ] and made big plays for us this year.Ē Roberts estimated between 40 and 50 NFL scouts visited practice to watch film and see Johnson work out during the season. The scouts also got an eyeful of Johnsonís fellow safety, Khayyam Burns. Burns, another four-year starter out of Fort Smith, finished his career as the Sun Beltís No. 2 tackler with 331 and this season had 97 tackles, 51 unassisted, 4 passes broken up and 1 fumble recovery. --Todd Traub, Arkansas Democrat Gazette

Arkansas State SS Marcellous ďTyrellĒ Johnson improved his stock as a senior and could be one of the top safeties drafted. Heís smart, graduated before his senior season, tackles well, works hard and is an aggressive tackler. He could warrant middle-round draft consideration. ---PFW

2007 Season Higlights

2007 All-Sun Belt Conference First Team, Tyrell Johnson, the Preseason Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Year and SBCís all-time leader in tackles with 363 total stops, recorded 94 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, a career-high six interceptions for 142 yards and a touchdown, four pass break-ups and two forced fumbles. He broke the Sun Belt record for career interception return yards with 309 and finished as the Sun Beltís third all-time leader in interceptions with 13. He ranks seventh in the Sun Belt in tackles (7.8 per game), third in interceptions (0.5 per game) and sixth for passes defended (0.83 per game). He is the only player in the Sun Belt ranked among the top 10 players for tackles, interceptions and passes defended. He recorded a season-high 14 tackles against Texas, posted double-figure tackles three times and had at least seven stops in eight games. He is ranked tied for 10th in the nation in interceptions.

Outlook: Tyrell Johnson is a Safety who can fill either position for the Eagles. He could start at SS right away or fill in as a backup for Brian Dawkins if he gets injured again. He is a monster on ST's and can make a huge impact as a gunner right away. Has 4 years of experience and had his best games against the best competition last year v. Texas and Tennessee. PHI is very pleased to get a player this talented here.

With the 114th selection, the Houston Texans select Jeremy Zuttah, OT, Rutgers, 6'4" 303 lbs.

Analysis
Positives: Good overall athleticism. ... Good initial quickness off the snap. ... Uses his hands well to position and sustain blocks, flashing some explosion and nastiness. ... Good set up in pass protection. ... Keeps his shoulders square to the defender and has the foot quickness to compete on the outside. ... Versatile offensive lineman with experience at both guard and tackle positions. ... Viewed by some as athletic and instinctive enough to project best inside at center -- a position he has never played. ... High effort player who wants to be good.

Negatives: Considered by some to be a bit of a 'tweener. ... Lacks the size preferred for the outside and gets by on quickness and toughness, rather than strength, as a close-quarter run blocker. ... Lacks true explosiveness to his game and may be a bit of a finished product, considering his work ethic and toughness.

With the 118th pick of the 2008 NFL mock draft the
Denver Broncos select Tashard Choice RB Georgia Tech

Strengths: A workhorse back with natural running skills and excellent competitiveness. Reads blocks well, doesn't waste motion and gets through holes quicker than people seem to think. Patient, does a nice job of locating cutback lanes and makes sharp cuts behind the line if scrimmage. Displays great stop-and-start skills. Runs hard, bounces off arm tackles and picks up many yards after contact. Consistently makes the first defender miss. Shows effective use of stiff arm. Runs adequate routes and has the burst to separate from man coverage. Catches the ball with hands away from frame and doesn't drop many passes should catch. Is smooth turning upfield and shows good vision setting up blocks in space. Does an excellent job of selling playfakes.

Overall: Choice spent the 2004 season backing up Adrian Peterson at Oklahoma. He enrolled at Georgia Tech in 2005 and was immediately eligible to play after the NCAA granted a waiver of the residency requirement. During his next two seasons with the Yellow Jackets, Choice appeared in 26 games (15 starts) and ran for 1,986 yards and 18 touchdowns on 414 carries (4.8 average). In 12 games (all starts) in 2007, Choice turned in 1,412 yards and 10 touchdowns on 261 carries (5.3 average); 14 receptions for 107 yards (7.6 average); and even an 11-yard touchdown pass. He had midseason knee surgery and also was bothered by a hamstring injury, but Choice missed just one game last year. Choice was tremendously productive at the collegiate level when healthy. He is a proven workhorse with very good vision, toughness and power for his size. He displays good patience setting up blocks and he also is quicker to and through the hole than some think. Unfortunately, Choice doesn't have the frame to match his hard-charging running style, which has led to several injuries throughout his career.

Tashard surprised many scouts with his timed speed at the combine and at his pro-day and some say he might go as high in the 2nd rd of this draft.

With the 120th selection in the 2008 NFL draft the Dallas Cowboys select....

Dexter Jackson
Position: WR/KR/PR
College: Appalachian State

Strengths: Explosive athlete with excellent quickness and speed. Typically jumps out on film as the fastest player on the field. Gets from 0-to-60 mph in a hurry. Shows great hip fluidity and quickness as a route runner. Gets in and out of breaks without losing much time at all in transition. Does a great job of breaking off routes and separating from man-coverage. A huge threat with the ball in his hands. Is quick to pluck on the run and get up the field. Very good focus going over the middle and will secure the ball before taking a big hit. Shows excellent initial burst and a second gear to run away from defenders. Is elusive and shows good vision as an open field runner. Displays lots of upside in the return game.

Weaknesses: Is undersized; lacks ideal height and bulk. Will get pushed around and taken out of routes by bigger corners that get their hands on him. Played in a read-option offense at FCS level in college, so he has a lot to digest as a WR in the NFL. He still needs to improve his footwork as a receiver. A small target that gets lost in traffic frequently. Will not break tackles with his lean frame. Does not provide much as a stalk blocker, either.

Overall: Jackson appeared in 40 games (16 starts) in his first three seasons (2004-'06), including all 11 games as a true freshman. During that period, he turned in 80 receptions for 1,158 yards (14.5 average) and nine touchdowns. As a senior, Jackson had 30 receptions for 688 yards (22.9 average) and eight touchdowns; five rushing attempts for 74 yards (14.8 average) and a score; and 34 punt returns for 223 yards (6.6 average). Jackson also had one rushing touchdown during his Mountaineers career. Jackson is extremely fast and unlike Donnie Avery (Houston), he is a fluid slot-receiver type with loose hips and excellent quickness. He is very dangerous with the ball in his hands  both after the catch and in the return game. His lack of size limits his potential and he obviously needs to make a big leap from the small-school level to the NFL. But he has proven capable on several occasions (vs. Michigan in 2007, E-W Shrine Game and Senior Bowl) of competing with the big boys. Jackson should come off the board somewhere between Rounds 3 and 4.

A perfect compliment as a slot reciever option with Owens and Witten leading the show in Dallas. He also adds a gamebreaker element as a return man. The additions of both Jenkins and Jackson will help take Dallas' 18th and 16th ranked kick and punt return units (respectively) to the next level.

Hawk's boys is now on the clock, at 5:05PM CST.

Well its now nearly 9 AM CST so I'm going to proceed with my pick.

With the 122nd pick in the NFL draft the Dallas Cowboys select....

Oneil Cousins
position: OT/OG
college: UTEP

Strengths:
Extremely athletic...Very quick and agile...Light on his feet and slides well...Mobile with good range...Has long arms with some size potential...Flexible and a natural knee bender..Offers some versatility...He's still improving and has a ton of upside.

Weaknesses:
Size and bulk are just average...Needs to get stronger...Uses poor leverage...Not overly physical...May lack a nasty demeanor and killer instinct..Doesn't get a great push...Questionable instincts and awareness...Still needs a lot of technique work.

Notes:
Nickname is "Tate"...Could also project to guard at the next level...Born in Jamaica and didn't start playing football until his sophomore year in high school..Began his college career as a defensive tackle and just moved to the offensive line in '05...A better athlete than football player at this point and was benched in '06...Made big strides as a senior and saw his draft stock soar but is still a workout warrior...Will likely be taken earlier than he should be based more on potential than production

Will add youth and athleticism to a Cowboys line that is getting long in the tooth at some positions.

Hawks Boys can make his pick at any time. Minibronco is on the clock as of 9 AM CST.

Notes:
In 2007 he made a serious run at Barry Sanders single-season Division I rushing record (2,628) but fell 61 yards short...Lightly recruited out of high school and his only two Division I scholarship offers came from UCF and Akron..A good all-around player who does everything well but nothing great...Is not quite the prospect that his press clippings would lead you to believe but is the type who could outperform his draft slot...Has starting potential and could end up being a steal for someone. <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>Att</TD><TD align=middle>Yds</TD><TD align=middle>Avg</TD><TD align=middle>TD</TD><TD align=middle>Rec</TD><TD align=middle>Yds</TD><TD align=middle>TD</TD></TR><TR align=right><TD align=left>2005</TD><TD align=middle>13</TD><TD align=middle>249</TD><TD align=middle>1,178</TD><TD align=middle>4.7</TD><TD align=middle>9</TD><TD align=middle>8</TD><TD align=middle>44</TD><TD align=middle>0</TD></TR><TR align=right><TD align=left>2006</TD><TD align=middle>9</TD><TD align=middle>206</TD><TD align=middle>934</TD><TD align=middle>4.5</TD><TD align=middle>7</TD><TD align=middle>23</TD><TD align=middle>158</TD><TD align=middle>0</TD></TR><TR align=right><TD align=left>2007</TD><TD align=middle>14</TD><TD align=middle>450</TD><TD align=middle>2,567</TD><TD align=middle>5.7</TD><TD align=middle>29</TD><TD align=middle>24</TD><TD align=middle>242</TD><TD align=middle>1</TD></TR><TR style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold" align=right><TD align=left>Totals</TD><TD align=middle>36</TD><TD align=middle>905</TD><TD align=middle>4,679</TD><TD align=middle>5.2</TD><TD align=middle>45</TD><TD align=middle>55</TD><TD align=middle>444</TD><TD align=middle>1</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

OK, I like this guy in the late 4th/5th round anyway.

The Baltimore ravens select:

Terrence Wheatley, CB, Colorado
Height: 5-95/8 | Weight: 187
Combine 40 Time: 4.37.
Benchx225: 17. Vertical 36.5.
Projected Round: 3.
Terrence Wheatley looked really solid at the combine. Along with his 4.37 40 and 36.5-inch vertical, Wheatley was awesome in some of the drills. Wheatley picked off three passes against Texas Tech.

Strengths:
Very fast with good quickness and a burst to close...A fantastic athlete with great agility...Smooth with fluid hips...Playmaker with good hands and ball skills...Smart with good instincts...Physical and always plays hard...Has special teams potential.

Weaknesses:
Does not have the ideal size or bulk that you'd prefer...Needs to get stronger...A marginal tackler...He'll struggle when matched up against big pro wideouts...Has some durability and health concerns...

With the 128th overall Pick the Rams select Andre Fluellen of Florida State.

http://cache.viewimages.com/xc/56147486.jpg?v=1&c=ViewImages&k=2&d=17A4AD9FDB9CF1939847EC77F5F8D1CE48544E9D8597CEBA A40A659CEC4C8CB6

Andre Fluellen DT 6í4 280 Florida St.
By: Robert Davis

After a year as a backup, Fluellen became a starter on the Nole defensive line. In 2005, he had 26 tackles, 7.5 for loss, and 2.5 sacks on the season. A year later, his numbers were almost identical. He had 28 tackles, eight for loss, with .5 sack on the year. Huge numbers were expected this year, but injuries derailed his season. He played in nine games, starting four, but finished with just 16 tackles, one for loss, and one sack.

Fluellen is a talented, versatile defensive lineman. He is a good athlete, with very good quickness. He has a quick first step and can gain penetration to disrupt the action. He has played different spots on the interior line, and may be able to play on the edge in the NFL. He may have the ability to play in the 3-4 along with a 4-3 alignment.

Size is the big issue with Fluellen. He is undersized for an interior lineman. He must get bigger to hold up at the point of attack against offensive lineman. If he is taken with the idea of playing end, he lacks the standout athleticism and closing speed to be a true playmaker off the edge.

Fluellen is a very good interior line prospect. That is his best position, but he will have to gain weight to live up to his potential. His true size may be the ultimate deciding factor in where he is selected in April. He will need a big post season to gain momentum leading up to the draft, because he was not able to improve his stock on the field because of an injury.

The Denver Broncos select Quintin Demps S Texas El Paso



STRENGTHS

Quintin has what all good safeties must have to be successful at the next level -- intelligence! He is one of the smartest safeties in this draft. He has good overall athletic talent to play his position and shows solid cover one on one abilities. Quintin exhibits great leadership skills and an excellent burst to make a tackle or to intercept the ball. Because of his intelligence, he could be used in a single safety zone system; however, his impact defense would be a two deep zone system. Quintin is a bit of a sleeper; if your team drafts this kid, they just drafted a safety that will impact and become a core player of your defense in a few years.



NEEDS TO IMPROVE

Quintin needs some technique work and when he receives it, his cover skills should be much better than they are right now. He has good speed and quickness, but he has to learn to trust his techniques more and not break too quickly looking for the big play. You will go through some growing pains with Quintin, but if you are patient, the rewards should be many.



TALENT BOARD ROUND 3

As I said, there is a little work to be done before Quintin becomes the player I believe he will become, but it will be worth it. He will help on special teams and in nickel-dime situations until he learns what is expected of him as a starting Free Safety in the NFL. This is one smart kid and when you have a kid with this kind of intelligence and athletic talent, it's just a matter of time before he puts it all together and becomes a hell of a free safety for the team that drafts him.

With the first of two, fifth round picks
The New Joisey Jets select:

Owen Schmitt, FB, WVA, 6'2", 247
http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n46/Nooch_2006/OwenSchmitt71805.jpg

STRENGTHS
Owen is a big, powerful kid who likes the physical part of the game of football. By this, I mean he likes to hit. He has good speed and shows strong hands, but most of all, this kid loves to block. It looks to me like he could be used as a Fullback or H-Back -- perhaps even as a TE on the line. Donít get me wrong: blocking is not the only thing this kid can do. He shows a little bit of lateral agility when he runs through the tackles along with good vision. He does a solid job of catching the ball out of the backfield. Owen is a ďjack-of-all-trades, ace of noneĒ type of guy. He reminds me a lot of Mike Alstott except that Mike was not as good a blocker as Owen is.

NEEDS TO IMPROVE
Owen is not as athletic as most NFL players. He does not do things in a smooth or pretty way. Everything Owen is able to accomplish on the field is because of his effort, heart and passion to play the game. So if youíre looking for a pretty boy to block for you, then I suggest you look someplace else because when Owen starts to rumble, there is thunder in the jungle.

TALENT BOARD ROUND 2
When you look in the dictionary for the definition of a Football player, I suspect that Owensís face will be the first thing you see. Owen will be a match-up nightmare. Even though he is small in stature, I believe because of his strength, passion, intelligence and work ethic that he will be an excellent TE in-line blocker. Owen will move the chains for you. He will move them when you need him to run for those two yards on third down or catch the ball for a five-yard pick up. I will not be surprised at all to see Owen chosen in the latter part of the first round. The only reason I have not put a 1st round grade on him is because I am not sure how good his hands are for the NFL level. His team does not throw him the ball that much. I donít know how far past the line of scrimmage that he is comfortable catching the ball. That doesnít mean I would not pick Owen early in this draft because in Owensís case, you are drafting something that most NFL teams and players do not have very much of in todayís game. You are drafting his passion to play football and to hit someone -- anyone, something -- at anytime and for any reason. Iím going to call him Owen (Thunder) Schmitt because like I said before, when Owen starts to rumble, there is thunder in the jungle. (Huddle Report)

The San Francisco 49ers select:

Bruce Davis, OLB, UCLA

http://www.cnnsi.com/football/ncaa/specials/preview/2007/teams/images/ucla.jpg

Strengths:
Very athletic...Good timed speed...Outstanding quickness with a burst to close...A terror off the edge...Very active with a non-stop motor...A team leader with great intangibles...Rangy and makes plays in pursuit...Versatile and has played both DE and OLB...Extremely productive..Would dominate games at times...Nice Bloodlines.

Weaknesses:
Vastly undersized and desperately needs to bulk up..A liability versus the run and struggles to hold his ground or get a push...Strength is well below average...One trick pony with a meager pass rush repertoire...He racked up a lot of his numbers against weak opponents...Struggles to shed....A 'tweener without a true position.

Notes:
Father, who's also named Bruce, played at UCLA and was a member of two Super Bowl championship teams as an offensive tackle...Uncle Ronnie also played for the Bruins...A one-dimensional pass rush specialist who will probably have to move to outside linebacker at the next level...Great college player who doesn't project well to the pros...Needs to land in the right situation and best shot may come in a 3-4.

Well, its 10:50am est time so i think its ok to go here:


With the #135th pick of the NFL draft the Buffalo Bills select;


Brian Johnston, DE, Gardner-Webb

Height: 6-5. Weight: 276.
Projected 40 Time: 4.78.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.66.
Vertical 35.
Projected Round: 3-4.

Brian Johnston opened some eyes at his combine, running a 4.66 and notching a 35-inch vertical at 276 pounds. A major sleeper in this year's draft.
A very productive end out of Gardner-Webb, Brian Johnston accumulated seven sacks in 2006, making the All-Big South first team. Level of competition is naturally an issue.


Strengths

Good sized DE, has decent athletic ability. Good against the run and pass. Good enough athlete to have started as a Frosh at SLB, and caught a 3 yard touchdown pass this season. Has benched 450, squatted 505,
Weaknesses

Has been able to use raw strength and speed to overwhelm opponents, he does not have a polished array of moves. Has short arms. 31.75 inches, for such a rangy athlete and needs to work on getting underneath the quicker footed OTs he'll face at the next level.
Projection

A possible 6th or even a 5th rounder. If he can get stronger and keep his speed and quickness he could be a real find on day 2. It's not impossible a team could try him as a 3-4 OLB but he is not used to being in space.

The Rams with the 137th pick of the draft. Select William Robinson OT out of San Diego St.


http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a198/24champbailey/mock.jpg

San Diego State offensive tackle William Robinson is somewhat of an unknown to most outside of West Coast scouts as he has come along slowly over the past two years. He is nearly 6-foot-6, 290 pounds, which is about 15 pounds heavier than his previous weight listed on the school's Web site. A raw-skilled left tackle with good feet, he plays with balance but needs to get stronger.

Height: 6-7. Weight: 270.
Projected 40 Time: 4.68.
Combine 40 Time: 4.68.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.69.
Benchx225: 24. Vertical: 36.5.
Projected Round: 2-3.



http://media3.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/photo/2008/01/01/PH2008010101103.jpg

A monstrous tight end with decent size, Brad Cottam could be the best blocker at his position in this class.


Strengths:
Has excellent size and a big frame..A very good natural athlete...Real smart and a hard worker with top-notch intangibles...Above average timed speed...Gives good effort as a blocker...Works well in space....Runs decent routes...Has a little upside.

Weaknesses:
Has very little starting experience...Was not overly productive...Needs to play with better leverage..Is not as dominant of a blocker as he should be...Has to be more physical and aggressive....Hands are questionable...Durability might be a concern.

I think I might actually receive hate mail for this pick but personally I think the low risk could be worth the high reward.

With the 140th pick of the 2008 NFL draft the Denver Broncos select:

Adarius Bowman WR Oklahoma State

STRENGTHS
Adarius is a big, powerful WR with strong hands, good speed and the overall size to make him a match-up nightmare for any CB, Safety or LB at the next level. He runs good routes and understands how to shield off a smaller, quicker CB from jumping the slant routes that will make or break this kid at the next level. He does a solid job blocking for the sweep and looks to be a good teammate. Adarius has the athletic talent and ability to be the Top WR in this draft, but right now he is not.

NEEDS TO IMPROVE
First, Adarius is coming off a knee injury and is not all the way back from it. He also struggles catching the ball, but I feel this can be corrected. I believe he may have a problem with his eyes, causing issues with his depth perception. I think Adarius also struggles learning and remembering his assignments. This might be attached to the eye problem that I have noticed. I think this kid is proud and has trouble asking for help. This is just a gut instinct on my part, but thatís what I sense is the problem because the kid has the talent. A search of Adarius showed some character and maturity issues that need to be investigated by the team that wants to draft him.

TALENT BOARD ROUND: 1 C
There is a ton of talent wrapped up in this kid, but between his dropping balls, knee injury and character issues, you have to wonder where this kid is going to fall in this draft. I donít get a feeling that this kid is a bad kid, but I do get the feeling that he is easily influenced and sometimes that is just as bad. He definitely has a problem with his eyes. The reason I say this is because the ball is hitting off his hands, not bouncing off. Itís like he is not expecting the ball to be on him so quickly. When the workouts come, I suspect Adarius is not going to do well unless he has his eyes checked. If his eyes are healthy, then I canít tell you what this kidís problems are. He is an athlete and I just canít believe that he canít catch a ball -- it doesnít make any sense. If Adarius has not been working out and doing his rehab like he should, he will struggle big time when the Senior Bowl and combine come up. This is a maturity problem and to tell you the truth, if this kid embarrasses himself, it might be the best thing to happen to him. It just might be the thing to give him the incentive he needs to grow into the player his talent suggests that he should be. This kid could be the Godzilla of Wide Receivers if he gets these issues straightened out. I think if he is there in the second round or late in the first, you have to take a chance on him. He really has top ten talent, but these issues have held him back. With a character/maturity problem, you also have to wonder what a load of money will do to this kidís psyche! In spit of all these questions, Iím still going to give him a nickname. Iím calling him Adarius (Godzilla) Bowman because he could be the Godzilla of wide receivers if he gets his head out of his hindquarters and his eyes fixed.

Darrell Robertson, DE, Georgia Tech

Height: 6-4 Weight: 255
Position: DE


03/14/08 - Georgia Tech defensive end/outside linebacker Darrell Robertson tore a pectoral muscle while training for the combine and is not likely to work out before the draft. Scouts feel this should not hurt Robertson's draft grade as he capped a terrific '07 season with a good performance at the Senior Bowl. - Tony Pauline, SI.com

Career Notes

En route to making 101 plays vs. the run, the opposition managed to register only one first down on those attempts...34.26 percent of his plays (37 of 108) came on third-down activity...Also registered five tackles while appearing on the kickoff-coverage unit.

2007 Season

All-American third-team and Super Sleeper Team selection by The NFL Draft Report...Added All-Atlantic Coast Conference first-team honors from The Gridiron Report...The left defensive end recorded 33 tackles (22 solo), as he ranked eighth in the conference with 6 1/2 sacks for minus-34 yards and tied for third in the ACC (21st nationally) with 16 stops for losses of 61 yards...Added 11 quarterback pressures, as he caused a pair of fumbles and recovered two others, returning one 32 yards for a touchdown...On 50 rushing attempts directed at Robertson, he held the opposition to minus 57 yards (minus-1.58 average) on the ground (best among Division 1-A defensive linemen)...Stopped opposing ball carriers three times at the line of scrimmage for no gain on rushing attempts and posted six of his tackles inside the red zone, including three on goal-line plays...Of his tackle total, 16 came on third-down plays.

Steltz is a very instinctive player that is always around the ball. He is strong, tough, and plays very physical. He has great size for the position and the football smarts to be a player. He has a motor that never stops and he is a good tackler. He plays well against the run and around the line of scrimmage. Steltz was a key player for the National Champion LSU Tigers.

With the 147th pick the Philadelphia Eagles select:

Darius Reynaud, WR, West Virginia

Height: 5-09 Weight: 201

Positives: Short, compact build. ... Looks more like a running back than a receiver. ... Dangerous with the ball in his hands in the open field. ... Good lateral agility to make defenders miss and can accelerate into the open field for the big play. ... Reliable pass catcher who shows the body control and aggression to fight for the ball in a crowd despite his lack of preferred size. ... Can track the ball over his shoulder. ... Physical blocker despite his size.

Negatives: Lacks the preferred height to play on the outside. ... Despite his rare agility and deep speed, is only a marginal route-runner. ... Flashes the ability to separate, but relies on his athleticism and hasn't shown the work ethic in the past to focus on this area.

Spectacular open-field runner with the strong hands and potential as a route-runner to develop into a dangerous slot receiver at the next level. Reynaud operated as the third option for West Virginia, but with defenses focusing on the running attack, his ability as a receiver and big-play threat was the lightning rod that made the Mountaineer offense so versatile. Reynaud is shorter than scouts would like, but he has a strong build and plays with both toughness and physicality.--NFLDS

PHI says: We like Darius as a slot guy and most importantly as a KR/PR prospect. He blocks very well, has incredible vision, and has great hands. We look forward to the versatility he brings....

Paul Hubbard
Position: WR
College: Wisconsin

6'3", 221 pound wide receivers who run a mid 4.3 to low 4.4 don't grow on trees. Some questions from the combine were dispelled pretty well at his pro day where he also put up a 39.5" vertical, and even then he's been consistently ranked as a late 3rd/early 4th round selection.

Picking Hubbard continues the Cowboys trend of adding premium talent, even if it might not be 100% ready to contribute or have an open spot waiting. Our steam is pretty stacked as it is and we're looking to build the kind of roster depth that will keep us at the top for years to come. Giving Hubbard a couple of seasons to improve his route running and ball skills as well as develop chemistry with Romo will let him hit the ground running when he replaces Owens as the team's go to WR around 2010 or 2011.

Last post offtopic from picks but if I recall correctly WA, you traded pick 150 to me earlier in the draft in the J. Stewart deal. Tennessee should be on the clock and i'll have my pick up between beers in the UNC/Louisville game. :)

</TD><TD vAlign=top>Strengths:
Good size with the frame to get bigger...Real athletic..Good range and does a nice job in pursuit and has a burst...Explosive with terrific quickness and a burst...Very strong...Can get some penetration..Is solid versus the run...Still has some upside.

Weaknesses:
Wasn't very productive...Pass rush repertoire is limited...Questionable awareness and instincts..Inconsistent and disappears at times..Plays with bad technique and leverage...Doesn't have a lot of experience...Might have some character concerns.

Notes:
Last name is pronounced "GUY-in"...Was only a starter for a little over a year and then came out as a junior...Was one of the 'Nole players involved in the academic cheating scandal....Would have been better off going back to school for his senior year but is an interesting guy who has some tools to work with...A bit of a project who will most likely be picked a little earlier than he should be based on potential.

Notes:
Holds the national high school record for career touchdowns with 204..A four-year starter in the Big Ten and is Michigan's all-time leading rusher...A good all-around player who does everything well..Enjoyed a prolific college career.

With the 155th pick in the 2008 NFL draft the Dallas Cowboys select....

http://media.scout.com/Media/Image/42/425086.jpg

Steve Justice
Position: C
College: Wake Forest

Hard working blue collar center with good football instincts and he's put on a little size since college. While not a perfect fit in terms of what the Cowboys generally like in linemen (i.e. being huge) he's huge value here and offers a more technical alternative on the OL which might help given the propensity for poor snaps and false starts from Dallas' line.

Tyler Polumbus
OT | (6'7", 312, 5.299) | COLORADO

Scouts Grade: 54
View by: Player | NCAA School | Position | NFL Team | Flag | All Ranked Players | NFL Draft History
You are signed into Insider and have access to the exclusive draft content below.


Strengths: Plays with good overall balance, takes proper angles to defenders and is an effective finesse blocker that does a sound job of positioning body to cut off defenders. Shows good burst when attacking the second level, has the body control to adjust to moving targets and big enough to engulf most linebackers. Effective when cut blocking and able to get defenders off of their feet. Quick out of stance, gets into pass sets quickly and shows solid lateral movement when mirroring pass rushers. Has a wide wingspan and uses his long arms to ride defenders past the pocket. Has good size and is tall enough to bulk up.

Weaknesses: Doesn't explode off the ball, fails to deliver a violent initial punch and needs to be more physical at the point of contact. Center of gravity is high, struggles to get under defender's pads and struggles to get movement when drive blocking as a result. Plays with a narrow base and slides off too many blocks. Bends at the waist rather than the knees and has some problems holding ground working against bull rushers. Can overset in pass protection and makes it too easy for defenders to shoot the inside gap at times.

Overall: Polumbus redshirted his first year at Colorado (2003). He appeared in three games in 2004 and played in all 13 of the Buffaloes' games as a sophomore (2005), including starts in the first two. He started all 12 games as a junior (2006) and didn't miss a snap as a senior in 2007 (13 games, all starts). In 2005, Polumbus was slowed by an ankle sprain but missed no games. He had surgery after the 2006 season to relieve a chronic shoulder injury. Polumbus needs to work on staying lower and adding upper body strength but he has the frame to add weight and strength without losing overall athleticism so he projects as a fifth round pick.

Chad Rinehart
OG (http://insider.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft/tracker/position?id=47) | (6'5", 320, 5.49) | NORTHERN IOWA (http://insider.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft/tracker/school?id=2335)

12:03 Central-11:03 Mountain

Strengths: Has above-average initial quickness for a guard and can get into position when technique is sound. Plays with a mean streak, delivers a violent punch and can jar defenders at the point of contact. Works from the snap until the whistle and can sustain blocks once locked on. Has adequate lower body strength and flashes the ability to drive defenders. Takes sound angles to downfield blocks and can get into position at the second level. Keeps head up and generally does a good job of sliding off combo blocks to pick up linebackers. Shows good awareness in pass protection and can adjust to line stunts and blitzes. Though bends at the waist rather than the knees, has good size and can hold ground against bull rushers. Lined up at tackle in college and is somewhat versatile. While missed three games after undergoing an appendectomy in 2004 started the last 39 games of his collegiate career and is durable.

Weaknesses: Doesn't always get hands inside the defender's frame and slides off too many blocks. Takes too many false steps and has some problems preventing penetration despite quickness as a result. Plays too high and is going to have problems driving two-gap defensive tackles off the ball. Quicker than fast and while can effectively trap is going to have problems turning the corner when asked to pull. Takes to long to get set, can struggle to slide with defenders and would likely struggle if left on an island at tackle in the NFL so should move to guard. Played at a small school and there is some concern about ability to adjust to the speed at the NFL game level.

Overall: Rinehart redshirted his first season at Northern Iowa (2003). He started the first five games of his freshman season (2004) and played as a reserve in the Panthers' final three. He played a total of 47 games (44 starts) at left tackle in his four seasons ('04-'07), starting in a consecutive 39 games to close out his career. He was named a first-team All-America selection in 2007. Rinehart missed three games in '04 after undergoing laparoscopic appendectomy. Rinehart is a small-school prospect that dominated at the Division I-AA level and has the skill set to develop into an effective starting NFL guard. However, there are still concerns about his ability to make the substantial jump to the NFL and he needs to improve his footwork as well as his hand placement so he projects as a late fourth round pick or early fifth round pick.

Rinehart was already selected with the first pick in the 5th round.

The Rams are happy to select Guard Donald Thomas of Connecticut.


Donald Thomas might have exploded at the perfect time. The senior from Connecticut has always been thought of as a potential star at his position, but in the back end of his last year and through the post season and all-star games he has turned that upside into great performance. Thomas is what I would call the star on the rise for this position at the 2008 combine. He has the skills, and now he is using them.

Scouting Report

Pros: He has the quickness to make it to the second level of blocking.

Cons: Needs to work on his pass-blocking skills.

Overall: He is on the radar of most every team in the NFL; he will find a home.

With a remembrance to Damian Nash (who was one of Franklin's best buds)

The New York Jets select:

William Franklin, WR, 6í1Ē, 214, Missouri

http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/img/12-07/1205mo.jpg

Franklin is a good receiver with nice speed and reliable hands. He has a lot of skills and can beat you on intermediate routes or vertically. He's a strong, physical receiver who doesn't shy away from contact. He gets off the line really well and runs good routes. He makes tough catches in traffic and shows consistency catching the ball. He's a solid downfield blocker and will sacrifice his body for his team. Franklin is a good receiver who's been a consistent performer through his career. He offers a team at the next level a quality third receiver in an offense and may develop into a No. 2 receiver. He's an early second-day pick. (Scout.com)

Alright the Atlanta Falcons are going to do something a bit out of the norm. They traded up (back into) the first round to select Brian Brohm. While we feel he has a future here, we fully realize their are risks involved. We also realize that the potential of hitting on another QB and having either a prospect to trade or a career backup is intriguing. So, knowing full well the amount of coaching that will be required of having to rookie QB's, the Atlanta Falcons select:

Colt Brennan who in the 6th round is very good value!

Quarterback | Senior | Hawaii
Height: 6-23/8 | Weight: 207 | 40-Time: 4.85


Strengths:
Was extraordinarily productive...Good height with the frame to get bigger...Very accurate...Arm strength is adequate...Has a quick release...Displays terrific touch and timing...A decent athlete who moves well in the pocket...Smart...Knows how to read a defense and go through his progressions...Super confident and poised under pressure...Has shown maturity in owning up to his past mistakes...A leader.

Weaknesses:
Played in a run-and-shoot system that inflated his stats...Worked mostly out of the shotgun and wasn't asked to make many NFL reads or throws...Needs to add weight and bulk up...Throwing motion is very unorthodox and his sidearm delivery leads to passes getting knocked down...Has some character concerns... Is not a finished product and will need some technique work...Somewhat of a gunslinger who will play recklessly and take unnecessary risks...Bust potential is significant.

Notes:
Backed up Matt Leinart at Mater Dei High School...Later spent a year at Worcester Academy prep school where he played with former New Hampshire wideout David Ball...Began his college career at Colorado as a walk-on where he redshirted as a freshman..Convicted of first-degree criminal trespass and second-degree burglary in 2004 after he allegedly entered a female students dorm room and fondled her, which led to his almost immediate dismissal from the football team...Wound up at Saddleback Community College and after a standout season there he was offered an opportunity to walk-on at Hawaii...Holds numerous NCAA records including the career mark for passing touchdowns...Much, much better pro prospect than Timmy Chang was but that "System QB" label still lingers and he will have to overcome the failures of other high-profile run-and-shoot guys such as Andre Ware & David Klinger...If he lands with a top-notch quarterbacks coach and is handled properly Brennan has the ability to start at the next level...At this point there are still more questions than answers with this guy, which makes him an awfully risky prospect.

Adequate height and great bulk...Smooth athlete...An outstanding leaper...Terrific body control and ball skills...Knows how to get open...Quick and elusive..Runs well after the catch...Gives great effort as a blocker...Tough and physical...Hard worker and team leader with excellent intangibles...He might also be able to return kicks.

Weaknesses:
Timed speed is merely average and he isn't overly explosive...Is not really a deep threat...Doesn't get much separation...Drops more balls than he should...Needs to improve his route running...Has some durability issues..Had a sub par senior year.

Notes:
Reportedly has a 43.5-inch vertical..He has missed at least some action in three of the last four seasons with injuries, including most of the 2004 campaign...Outside of blazing speed he would appear to have everything that you look for in terms of physical tools and intangibles..Is not a true #1 wideout but has starting potential.</td></tr></tbody></table>

Adrian Arrington, WR, Michigan

Strengths:
Smooth athlete...Nice size and bulk with long arms..Good hands and will make the spectacular catch...Great leaping ability and ball skills...Can do some damage after the catch..Tough...Will work the middle of the field...Still improving and has upside.

Weaknesses:
Does not have great timed speed or quickness...Is not very explosive and lacks a burst...Needs to get stronger...Is not a great route runner...Lack of concentration leads to some drops...Questionable motor...Marginal blocker...Doesn't have a ton of experience...Was never the featured target in college...Has character concerns.

Notes:
Would have had the opportunity to emerge from Mario Manningham's shadow as a senior in 2008 but chose to go pro early rather than try to adapt to the spread offense being installed by Rich Rodriguez...Was only a starter for about a season and a half...Has been suspended on more than one occasion and in 2006 he was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic violence following an argument with his girlfriend..Would have been much better off going back to Ann Arbor...Has some tools but his lack of speed and off-the-field issues will hurt him on Draft Day.

Tough and a hard worker...An instinctive runner...Does a nice job in short-yardage situations...Has good hands and runs good routes...Versatile...Has a great motor and always gives 100%...Team player...Loves the game...A terrific special teamer.

Weaknesses:
A FB / RB 'tweener....Undersized and lacks the ideal bulk you look for...Isn't strong or powerful enough...Will struggle to match up as a blocker and needs to be more aggressive...Isn't an elusive runner or a big play threat...Not real quick or athletic.

Notes:
A relative of former Pittsburgh Steeler great Terry Bradshaw...Started at running back as a senior...Jack of all trades, master of none who does everything well but nothing great...The type of player that coaches love and all good teams need but his calling card is intangibles, not physical tools..Can make a roster and contribute but he doesn't really profile as much more than a backup at the professional level.

The Rams select Running Back Ryan Torain of Arizona State.



http://www.eastvalleytribune.com/images/photos/2007/10/17/qwj4ctoc.jpg


Torain, a junior-college transfer, rushed for 1,882 yards and 12 touchdowns on 333 carries in his 19-game ASU career. Mel Kiper, ESPN NFL draft guru, lists him as the No. 2 senior running back in the nation.

For a running back, whose front foot is vital to shifting and acceleration, a Lisfranc injury can be extremely difficult to come back from. And that is the uncertainty that Torain ó a first- or second-round draft choice when healthy ó now faces in his football future.

Class: Sr.
Hometown: Cape Coral, Fla.
High School: Evangelical Christian

Weight: 205
Position: DB
Birthdate: May 7, 1985

3 tackles for loss
11 passes defensed
3 blocked field goals
1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery
1 National Championship (3rd consecutive)
1 All-American Selection (3rd consecutive)

2006: Earned first-team all-America recognition from College Sporting News and second-team honors from The Sports Network ... a first-team all-Southern Conference selection by the leagueís coaches and media ... despite missing two games (regular-season finale and playoff opener) due to an elbow injury suffered versus The Citadel, tied for SoCon and team lead with five interceptions on the season ... five total INTs were good for a tie for ninth nationally ... three of his five interceptions came during the NCAA Division I FCS Playoffs, including one in the waning seconds of the national championship game against UMass that sealed ASUís second-straight national title ... blocked three field goals on the campaign ó just one shy of the schoolís single-season record for blocked kicks ... two of the three blocked FGs came at critical times in ballgames ... his first FG block came in the fourth quarter of a 14-7 contest versus Wofford ... ASU would up holding on for the seven-point win ... the second came with the Mountaineers tied up with arch-nemisis Furman late in the first half ... Lynch not only blocked the 31-yard attempt by FUís Scott Beckler, but also scooped up the loose ball and returned it 79 yards to paydirt, turning what would have likely been a 10-7 halftime deficit into a 14-7 halftime lead ... ASU went on to dominate the second half and pick up the most lopsided win in series history, 40-7 ... a week later, Lynch scored his second touchdown in as many weeks when he picked up a fumble forced by fellow all-American Marques Murrell and returned it 25 yards for a score ... in all, he ranked among the ASUís top three in six different defensive categories ó interceptions (5), tackles (85), pass break-ups (6), blocked kicks (3), touchdowns (2) and fumble recoveries (1).

2004: Preseason first-team all-SoCon honoree played in just two games before suffering a season-ending elbow injury while returning a punt with less than a minute to go versus Eastern Kentucky Ö picked up where he left off in 2003 as he recovered a fumble in season opener at Wyoming and intercepted a pass and forced a fumble in victory over EKU Ö made 13 tackles in two contests, including a team-high nine stops at Wyoming Ö received a medical redshirt.

2003: Led the SoCon in interceptions (6) and fumble recoveries (4) ... lone freshman chosen to either All-SoCon team, earning second-team honors from both the leagueís coaches and media ... listed an interception in four of the last five games of the year ... started every game, minus the season opener ... totaled a season-high 12 tackles (5 solo, 7 assists), a fumble recovery and a 28-yard interception return versus Georgia Southern ... recovered two fumbles deep in Mountaineer territory at Furman ... collected a pair of interceptions and a fumble recovery against Morehead State ... registered a 31-yard interception return versus Chattanooga ... tallied 11 tackles (6 solo, 5 assists) and an interception at Elon ... made a fumble recovery at The Citadel ... carded two pass deflections and forced a fumble at Wofford.

The Rams select Defensive End Louis Holmes out of University of Arizona.


http://www.arizonaathletics.com/assets/9F9F5FE3-91C0-4D96-A213-D1AC43FF0023.jpg

I'm not sure about Holmes due to his character problems, but physically he is VERY gifted. Could be something in the NFL, could be a Clarett. Who knows?


Holmes originally committed to Ohio St out of high school, but was not eligible to gain entrance into the school. He wound up in Arizona at Scottsdale Community College, and became one of the most sought after players in the country. In two years at SCC, Holmes had 192 tackles, 40 for loss, and 16 sacks. In first season at Arizona as a junior, Holmes had 36 tackles, five for loss, and four sacks. His numbers were virtually identical as a senior, finishing with 37 tackles, 5.5 for loss, and two sacks.

Louis Holmes is all about getting after the quarterback. He is a very good athlete and uses it to routinely beat tackles and get into the backfield. He changes direction well, and has a nose for the football in the backfield. Holmes has a great frame for a DE. He is long and lean, and has plenty of room for more growth, despite already topping 260lbs. Depending on how much weight he can gain, he may be able to move inside to a tackle position.

Holmes still relies on his athleticism too much. He will play upright and times, and coupled with his lankiness, makes him a non factor in running plays when the tackle gets a hold of him. He also lacks the outstanding closing speed most big play pass rushers possess.

Coming to Arizona with a ton of hype, Holmes started out fast, but faded down the stretch during his first season. He may have been looking ahead to declaring after one season as a Wildcat, but things didnít work out that way. He came back and had another mediocre season at best. He has talent, and he will need good workouts to make a team select him on day two and hope he can put it together at the next level.

With the 175th Selection, The PHI Eagles select:

Kenneth Moore

WR/KR/PR Wake Forest

Overview:
An all-purpose player who made a name for himself as a receiver and return man in 2007 after stepping in at running back as a junior to make up for various injuries at the position. A first-team All-ACC selection, Moore had 98 catches for 1,011 yards and five touchdowns - including two games with 15 catches each. He also gained 316 yards on 44 carries (three touchdowns) and 355 yards on 34 punt returns (one score). He may get looks at all three spots in a team's training camp.

Analysis

Positives: Solid build and is difficult to bring down in the open field. ... Eludes the first man consistently with a bit of shiftiness. ... Good vision to find the hole when running and in the open field in space as a receiver. ... Solid concentration, snatching the ball and adjusting to poor throws in the open or in traffic. ... Lined up all over the field in 2007, using his shiftiness to make plays on short screens, reverses and quick passes into the flat. ... Solid, but not explosive, punt returner who runs upfield and doesn't dance. ... Excellent effort in all aspects of his game, even blocking downfield.



This kid is just a football player that will play right away on ST's and will compete to play in the slot with Darius Reynaud. I love his effectiveness, production, toughness, and desire. He is the ultimate team player who loves to be on the field all the time.

With the 182nd pick of the 2008 OM NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select Brandon Coutu K, Georgia

Strengths: Didn't miss a field goal attempt inside 40 yards last year and is consistent form that range. Powerful and can connect on long-range field goal attempts. Gets good hang time and excellent distance on kickoffs. Handles pressure well and is poised. Punted at the high school level and is versatile.

Overall: Coutu arrived at Georgia in 2003 and redshirted the year. In 2004, he appeared in 12 games, handling most of the team's kickoff duties and going 2-for-3 on field goal attempts and 3-for-3 on extra points. He played in 13 games in 2005 and converted 23 of 29 field goals (with a long of 58 yards) and 45 of 45 extra points. He appeared in the first five games of 2006 before a right hamstring tear cost him the next seven games. He finished 10-for-11 on field goal tries and 17-for-17 on extra points. As a senior in 2007, Coutu appeared in all 13 games and went 18-for-23 on field goals and 49-for-49 on extra points. In his four-year career with the Bulldogs, he had 221 kickoffs for 13,411 yards (60.7 average) and 56 touchbacks (only one recorded after his hamstring tear). He missed the second half of last season's Georgia Tech game because of an injury to the same right hamstring, but he returned for Georgia's bowl game against Hawaii. He also suffered a quadriceps strain in 2006 but missed no games. Coutu missed substantial time with an injury in 2006 and he wasn't as effective from longer ranges last year but he's exhibited enough power, accuracy and confidence to develop into a reliable NFL kicker. Despite not being invited to the combine, we think he's the most talented PK prospect in the 2008 class.

OK, theDave PMed me and said he's very busy with work. He said he would try to get his pick in, but that was almost two days ago, so I'm making the pick for him. TheDave, if you want to change that pick you may feel free to do so. Also, if theDave does not make his 7th round pick in the alotted time I will make that selection as well. I tried to get other folks to make the pick, but no dice. If I need to make the next pick, feel free to PM me with suggestions on who Miami should take.

At any rate, this guy could have been taken at the top of the 6th anyway, so we're not losing a ton of competitive balance here.

The Miami Dolphins select:

Antwaun Molden, CB, Eastern Kentucky.

trengths:
Very good size and bulk with long arms...A terrific natural athlete...Excellent timed speed with a burst to close...Has quick feet...Able to flip his hips and run with just about anyone...Is very self-assured with a short memory...Offers some versatility.

Weaknesses:
Not as physical as he should be...Too aggressive at times and can be fooled...He lacks great awareness...Average hands and ball skills...Does not get a very good jam at the line...Too confident and undisciplined...Doesn't play to his measurables.

Notes:
Began his college career at Toledo ('04) where he saw action in 13 games at both corner and safety as a freshman...Transferred down a level in '05 looking for more playing time...Also ran track at EKU...A bit of a Workout Warrior who does not play as well as he tests..An intriguing small school sleeper with ideal triangle numbers.

<table class="tablemed2" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1"> <tbody> <tr> <td>Strengths: Quick off the ball, stays low to the ground and makes it difficult for blockers to lock onto his frame. Keeps head, shows good lateral mobility and does a nice job of stringing plays out. Displays adequate balance and protects his feet very well. Has tremendous closing speed, takes adequate pursuit angles and flashes the ability to run ball carriers down from behind. Plays with a good motor and always seems to be around the ball at the end if the play. Shows good burst and can squeeze through small gaps when running line stunts. Has good top-end speed and can turn the corner when rushing the passer. Can redirect inside after staring outside, makes it difficult for blockers to get hands on him by dipping shoulder when shoots inside and has the potential to develop an arsenal of pass rush moves. Has a knack for blocking kicks, has experience covering kicks and should make an immediate impact on special teams.

Weaknesses: Lacks adequate size and isn't strong enough to play with hand down on an every-down basis. Hasn't shown great lower body strength and gets pushed around at times. Doesn't get great hand placement and takes too long to shed blocks. Relies on quickness to get to the quarterback too much and isn't a powerful bull rusher that can consistently collapse the pocket. Lacks ideal experience dropping back and is raw in coverage so could need some time to adjust if moved to outside linebacker. Takes too long to get out of back pedal and struggles to mirror receivers underneath. Played at a small school and there is some concern about ability to adjust to the speed of the game at the NFL level.

Overall: Johnson attended Morrisville (N.Y.) State College out of high school and dominated the junior college ranks in 2004 and 2005. In that span, he had 152 tackles (36.5 for losses), 21 sacks, five forced fumbles, six pass breakups and six blocked kicks in 19 games (all starts). He transferred to Clark in 2005, where he started all 21 games over his last two seasons, recording 182 tackles (45 for losses), 18.5 sacks, 10 forced fumbles (three of which he returned for touchdowns), six pass breakups, an interception and two blocked kicks. Johnson also was a productive contributor on kick coverage teams, logging 12 special teams tackles in his two seasons at Clark. Johnson is a small-school prospect who lacks prototypical size for an every-down end and has limited experience dropping into coverage so he projects as a late fifth or early sixth round pick. However, he is classic example of a diamond in the rough because he has the burst, athletic ability and closing speed to develop into a disruptive outside linebacker in a 3-4-scheme. In addition, there's a lot to like about how well he played on special teams during his time at Clark.

The Dave is up and has been PMed

JCMElway
04-06-2008, 02:07 PM
I've gone back and forth about this, but I'm going to make theDave's pick. He hasn't been on the Mane for two days, and only briefly at that point. So, I will select for him. If theDave wants to go with other players than the ones I've selected he may feel free to do so.

The Miami Dolphins select:

Bryan Smith, LB, McNeese St

Outside Linebacker | Senior | McNeese St.
Height: 6-23/8 | Weight: 231 | 40-Time: 4.75

Strengths:
Good speed and quickness with a burst...Outstanding natural pass rusher...Active with a relentless motor...Nice range and does a terrific job in pursuit...Pretty good instincts and awareness...Reliable tackler...Major special teams potential..Is tough and a hard worker with solid intangibles..He was really extraordinarily productive.

Weaknesses:
'Tweener who may have to make a position change...Is either extremely (DE) or a little (OLB) undersized depending on where he plays...Needs to get stronger..Can get physically manhandled...Repertoire of pass rush moves is limited...Is overaged and will be a 25-year-old rookie...He did not play against a lot of elite competition.

Notes:
Brother Ryan played football at Stephen F. Austin..Played defensive end in college but may have to move to outside linebacker at the next level...A two-time Division I-AA All-American....An intriguing developmental prospect and pass rush specialist.

Strengths:
Great athlete...Very good size and bulk...Above average timed speed...Quick with a burst to close...Terrific leaper...Decent instincts and awareness...Can deliver the big hit...Does a good job versus the run...Pretty physical...Has a lot of experience.

Weaknesses:
Is not fluid and doesn't flip his hips well...Poor change of direction skills...Will miss some tackles while going for the knockout blow...Bad hands and ball skills...Is too aggressive at times...Durability may be an issue..Work ethic has been questioned.

Notes:
Was a three-year starter for the Horned Frogs...A Workout Warrior who does not play to his measurables....From a triangle numbers perspective he has everything you look for...Intriguing developmental prospect with upside and could be a steal.

The Joisey Jets select Matt Damon doppelganger:

Matt Flynn, QB, LSU, 6’2”, 231

http://www.mugdish.com/images/football/ncaa/matt-flynn.jpg

Matt has good size to play his position. He has a strong arm and can make all the throws with solid velocity. He does a great job throwing on the move and moving in the pocket to give himself more time to make a play. He has good feet and understands how to move in the pocket and pass the ball to make plays rather than tuck the ball and run to make plays. Matt is starting to show strong leadership skills. He seems to be the type of QB that likes to lead by example and as his confidence grows in his own play, his leadership skills grow with it. He does a very good job managing a game plan and understands situational football. Matt’s talents translate well to the next level; he has the potential to be a franchise QB for the team that drafts him. (Huddle)

Having run in the 4.7-4.8 range at his proday the Falcons are happy to see Larsen available in the final round. While there are bigger needs, this is a guy that can come in and actually compete as a 7th round pick.

For those of you that watched the Arizona/Oregon Ducks game this year, you can recall how many times Spencer Larsen stuffed Johnathon Stewart for next to nothing. He really, really stood out in that game! For the Record, I was hoping to get Moffitt here and would have taken him here. It was a toss up a couple rounds ago between Moffitt, Butler, and Larsen. I should have taken Moffitt last round, but couldn't pass on what I felt was the 5th rated QB in the 6th round. Brennan will likely go in the 3rd or 4th round.

Pick made at 1700 MST.

Spencer Larsen
ILB | (6'1", 238, 4.81) | ARIZONA

Scouts Grade: 62

Strengths: Locates the ball carrier quickly, has good initial quickness and can disrupt running plays in the backfield. Takes adequate pursuit angles, works from the snap until the whistle and always seems to be around the ball at the end of the play. Gets adequate depth and reads the quarterback's eyes when asked to drop into zone coverage. Excellent instincts and rarely bites on play action. Vocal, gets players lined up in the right position and is a leader on the field. Has experience lining up on the outside and is somewhat versatile. Experienced at covering punts flies around the field regardless of the situation and has the potential to develop into a valuable special teams' contributor.

The San francisco 49ers Select:

Erik Ainge, QB, Tennessee

Strengths:
Has prototypical size...Arm strength is more than adequate...Displays good touch, timing and accuracy...He sees the field well and knows how to read a defense...Is naturally athletic...Tough and stands tall in the pocket...Productive...A competitor with solid intangibles...Lots of experience against top competition...Still improving.

Weaknesses:
Extremely inconsistent...Durability's a big concern...Gets sloppy with his mechanics and fundamentals...Below average mobility...Does not throw well on the run...Has had his confidence tested..Needs to be developed..Probably a boom or bust type.

Notes:
Uncle, Danny, played in the NBA for over a decade and is currently the director of basketball operations for the Boston Celtics...A four-year starter in the SEC...Has missed action with injuries to his shoulder ('04), neck ('05), ankle ('06) and knee ('07)...Really blossomed as a junior and senior under offensive coordinator David Cutcliffe, who coached both Peyton and Eli Manning...An underrated prospect with starting potential...Has everything that you look for in a pro signal caller physically and could end up being a pleasant surprise if he can show a bit more consistency.

With their final pick in the 2008 NFL draft, the New Orleans Saints finally look at the offensive side of the ball and select:

Jermichael Finley, TE, Texas

http://media.collegepublisher.com/media/paper410/stills/so5223sj.jpg

Height: 6'4"
Weight" 243 lbs.
40 time: 4.66

Strengths: Has good top-end speed, does a nice job of exploiting seams between safeties and linebackers and can stretch the field. Tracks the ball well, has excellent body control and flashes the ability to make the spectacular catch. Times jumps well, fights for the ball while it's in the air and excels in jump-ball situations. Uses body to shield defenders from the ball and flashes the ability to make touch catches in traffic. Shows good awareness and does a nice job of staying in bounds when running routes along the back of the end zone. Changes directions well and has the burst to develop into a crisp short-to-intermediate route-runner. Has big hands and doesn't drop many passes should catch. Flashes the ability to make the first defender miss, flashes the ability to pick up yards after contact and is capable of producing after the catch. Keeps head up and uses downfield blockers. Takes sound angles to assignments and can get into position at the second level.

Weaknesses: Gets adequate hand placement but fails to deliver a violent initial punch and isn't going to knock many defenders back at the point of attack. Plays with a mean streak and flashes the ability to sustain blocks hasn't shown great lower body strength and struggles to drive defenders off the ball. Undersized and is going to have problems anchoring when asked to help out in pass protection. Rounds too many cuts off and isn't a fundamentally sound route runner at this point. Lacks ideal starting experience and is still somewhat raw.

Overall: Finley redshirted his first year at Texas (2005). In 2006, he appeared in all 13 games (including four starts when the Longhorns opened in a two-tight end set), posting 31 receptions for 372 receiving yards (12.0 average) and three touchdowns. In 2007, he started all 13 games and finished the season with 45 receptions for 575 receiving yards and two touchdowns.Finley is a fairly one-dimensional pass-catching tight end at this point but he has enormous potential. He has the speed and athletic ability to develop into a big-play receiver and the frame to develop into an adequate blocker in space as an H-back type. As a result, Finley projects as a late-second or third round pick.:wiggle:

Expatfan's comments: at this point of the draft, I'm merely taking the best player available. Finley is a sophomore entrant to the draft who has already started 17 games in his career for one of the the best programs in the nation. Had he played two more years, he would have probably been drafted much, much higher. I'll stash him on the bench for those two years, and have a Randy McMichael in his prime in 2010.

Pick made at:
6:30 a.m. Abu Dhabi time
10:30 p.m. Eastern
9:30 p.m. Central
8:30 p.m. Mountain
7:30 p.m. Pacific
6:30 p.m. Alaskan

Icon is up next, and has been notified by p.m. 24champbailey has missed his pick, and may select at any time.

The Rams with the 199th overall pick, select OG/OT Pedro Sosa of Rutgers.

Pedro Sosa is shorter than most scouts would like to see in players at his position, but that has never stopped the senior from Rutgers from excelling at the college level. While he might not be a power of strength, his IQ and footwork more than make up for his lack of size. He has the burst off the snap and can pass block well, but he needs to improve on the run.

Scouting Report

Pros: He is going to have to move to guard to make it in the NFL, but that should not be a problem.

Cons: Lacks the size, making some teams skip right over him for someone with less talent but more potential and size.

Overall: He will be called late or a free agent; he might make a team due to the fact he will be able to play more than one position.

With their final pick of the 2008 NFL draft the Buffalo Bills select:

Ernie Wheelwright, WR, Minnesota

http://www.mndaily.com/daily/2005/10/19/p1fb1019F.jpg

Height: 6-4. Weight: 215.
Projected 40 Time: 4.66.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.50.
Vertical: 36. Broad .
Projected Round: 6.


Ernie Wheelwright's production in 2006 sucked. So did his projected 40 time. That has all changed. Wheelwright, who notched 66 receptions for 775 yards and nine touchdowns in 2007 despite having a mediocre quarterback, improved his workout numbers at his Pro Day. He posted a 4.50 40 and 36-inch vertical, both of which are great at his imposing size.

Eddie Mac and the Broncos are on the clock.

Denver select Kevin Robinson WR/KR/PR Utah State.

Strengths: Has adequate top-end speed and tracks the ball fairly well. Though inconsistent in this area, athletic and can look smooth getting in and out of breaks. Tough and isn't afraid to go over the middle. Snatches the ball out of the air and rarely drops passes should catch. Stays focused, has the body control to adjust to passes thrown outside frame and flashes the ability to make spectacular catches. Though lacks elite elusiveness changes speeds well, uses head as well as shoulder fakes and can make defenders miss when gets into space. Reads blocks well, reaches top-speed quickly and is a dangerous return man that can make an immediate impact on special teams.

Overall: Robinson didn't just play as a freshman; he started at wide receiver and was named the MVP of the Aggies' offense and special teams. In his first three seasons (2004-'06), he played in 34 games (21 starts) and compiled 123 receptions for 1,845 yards (15.0 average) and 16 touchdowns. In 12 games (11 starts) as a senior, he had 55 receptions for 640 yards (11.6 average) for five touchdowns and ranked eight in the nation in all-purpose yards per game (193.1). For his career, Robinson had 35 rushing attempts for 165 yards and a score; 78 punt returns for 1,104 yards and four touchdowns; and 110 kickoff returns for 2,725 yards and four TDs. Robinson doesn't have prototypical size or top-end speed but he appears faster than his 40-time would indicate because he tracks the ball fairly well and he's a north-south runner. His big-play ability as a return man coupled with his potential as a receiver should make him a sixth or seventh round pick.

The Chicago Bears select Lionel Dotson, DT, Arizona.

We feel like we need to add some depth at DT behind Dvoracek and Harris and we feel Dotson can possibly do that for us. We also considered Maurice Murry.
