With the 149th pick of the OM Draft, the St. Louis Rams select:

A.J. Klein, ILB, Iowa State
6’1”, 250, 4.6, 225=20




STRENGTHS
AJ Klein has good size, strength and speed to play as an inside linebacker in a 3-4 defense or as a middle linebacker in a 4-3 defense. He has excellent leadership skills and is a coach on the field making the players around him better. He does a very good job as a zone cover linebacker, making the correct drops and watching to see the crossing routes coming and anticipating making the hit. He is a head up, wrap up, squeeze and drive tackler and does an excellent job meeting big offensive guards and tackles, shedding and making tackles. AJ shows on film to have a good burst to the ball. I believe he will play faster than he times because of his football intelligence and instincts. He takes good angles and has the speed to makes tackles from the middle of the field to the sidelines. This kid is a quality football player and the type of player all teams need to make the playoffs. He is a coach on the field who will be a core player and fan favorite. If AJ is in a defense at the next level that allows him to flow to the play uninhibited, he will impact big time just as Jonathan Vilma did for the Jets when he was first drafted.... only smarter.

With the 150th pick in the 2013 Orange Mane Mock Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers select:

Josh Boyce, WR, TCU



Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 206
40 yard dash: 4.38
10-yard split: 1.56
225-lb. bench: 22 reps
Vertical jump: 34"
Broad jump: 10' 11"
3-cone: 6.68
Short Shuttle: 4.1

Prospect analysis from NFL.com:

OVERVIEW
Boyce was a teammate of 2011 Heisman Trophy winner and the 2012 draft's No. 2 overall pick Robert Griffin III at Copperas Cove High School. And one of their top rivals was Brownwood, the school of embattled TCU quarterback Casey Pachall.

He redshirted his first season in Waco, but became heavily involved in the Horned Frogs' prolific offense quarterbacked by current Cincinnati Bengals starter Andy Dalton in 2010. Boyce played in every game, starting eight of the last nine, and finishing second on the team in receiving yards (646 on 34 catches) and scoring six touchdowns. As a sophomore, Boyce was named a first-team All-Mountain West Conference pick after leading the team in receptions (61), yards (998) and receiving touchdowns (nine). As a junior, despite only playing four games with Pachall as the starting quarterback, Boyce managed 66 catches for 891 yards, and seven touchdowns.

STRENGTHS
Solid overall build with a muscular upper body and strong legs. Lines up outside and in the slot. Displays very good hands. Excellent first three steps off the line to challenge corners, shakes them off the line and has enough speed to get a step down the field. Stems every route in the tree with foot quickness that college corners can't handle, does not have to slow down significantly to make a cut. Tracks the ball well over either shoulder, and shows a good job of high pointing the football in contested situations. Creates space downfield with an arm extension. Tough to bring down after the catch because of his low center of gravity and strength. Aggressive run blocker with the strength to negate his man and stick with the block. Willing to attack safeties stepping up inside if uncovered.

WEAKNESSES
Might be limited to purely playing the slot. Does not bring some difficult catches extended away from his frame that top prospects are expected to snare with their hands. Some college corners could close on him in the open field. Will fall off run blocks instead of sustaining, allowing his man to come off and make a play at times.

NFL COMPARISON
Devery Henderson

BOTTOM LINE
Boyce's average height and maxed-out frame won't wow scouts, but the quickness and strength that made him a playmaker at the college level makes him a potentially dangerous weapon in the slot, with the possibility of being able to line up on the outside.

Rationale for the pick from BowlenBall
The Steelers lost Mike Wallace in free agency, and had a decision to make -- use our first or second round pick on a premium receiver in this draft, or wait until the middle rounds and hope that we can find some gems. We decided to stick with our philosophy of drafting (big uglies early, sexy positions late) and targeted Josh Boyce in the 5th and Tavarres King in the 6th. We're delighted that Boyce was there for us, but very bummed out that King was unexpectedly picked in the 5th. Boyce should be an excellent slot receiver at worst, but has the speed and size to possibly play on the outside as well.

With the 151st pick in the 2013 OM Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select:

Kenjon Barner, RB, Oregon

(I will try to post the cool stuff later, too busy right now)

All I will say is that with the trending injury problems Murray has had, Barner can provide some relief as a change of pace 3rd down back for the Cowboys and this threatening offense.

With the 152 pick JMC and the Chargers select...
Cobi Hamilton, WR Arkansas


Overview

Though many prospects follow their father’s footsteps by excelling in athletics at their alma maters, Cobi’s mother, Deborah, was the trailblazing athlete in the Hamilton household. She and Joy Dillard were among the first African-American female student-athletes on campus when they suited up for the inaugural Arkansas varsity women’s basketball team in the 1976-77 season.



But the long, lean Hamilton started making his own name as part of a Razorback passing offense ranking 10th in the nation in 2009. His best game came in the team’s win over Ole Miss, as his three catches covered more than one-third of his season receiving yardage (131 of 347) and he scored two of his three touchdowns of the year. He became a more regular contributor as a sophomore, especially after Greg Childs went out due to injury; he averaged nearly 20 yards a catch (32-630, 19.7 per) and scored six times -– twice in the team’s upset win over LSU on plays of 80 and 85 yards. Hamilton’s numbers dropped off a bit in his junior season (34-542, 4 TD) as the team spread the wealth among a slew of receivers. Hamilton’s speed and strength breaking tackles led his breakout year as a senior, recording 90 catches for 1335 yards (14.8 YPC) and five touchdowns as one of the few targets that quarterback Tyler Wilson trusted. His production earned him first-team All-Conference honors as well as third-team All-American honors. Hamilton also ran track for the Razorbacks for the 2010 season, running a personal-best time of 21.09 in the 200-meter dash at the Arkansas Last Chance Meet.
Analysis
Strengths
Big target with a well-built frame who projects as a potential outside starter. Uses his body to get position on his man on inside routes. Displays an extra gear once he gets the ball in his hands. Physical after the catch, showing the ability to break arm tackles. Flashes a quick move after the catch and the balance to leave a leaning cornerback behind, can also stiff-arm smaller defensive backs trying to wrap him up in space. Will through jams at the line of scrimmage, but still needs to improve in this area. Sharp cuts on inside breaking routes at the top of his stem. Adjust well to the flight path of the ball in the air. Should only improve his overall skill set with more opportunities.
Weaknesses
Occasionally runs by defenders with his long strides, but scouts won’t expect him to do the same at the next level. Will need to show he can drop his hips and have quick feet to run all NFL routes. Rounds off his cuts on out-braking routes. Concentration is a major issues, as he drops a couple of easily catchable balls a game. Limited catch radius on the move and will fail adjust to low or back-shoulder throws -– quarterback needs to put the ball on his chest. Not a natural hands catcher. Does not win at the line of scrimmage against press as consistently as expected given his build.
NFL Comparison
Mohamed Sanu
Bottom Line
Hamilton used his size, strength and speed with the ball in his hands for a huge increase in production as a senior (he had just 542 receiving yards and four touchdowns on a prolific Razorbacks offense in 2011) while also proving he owns the speed and agility to win one-on-one battles against pro cornerbacks. He has some flaws and his concentration wavers. However, he was the only target that Tyler Wilson trusted in 2012 and it showed in his statline (90-1,335-5 TDs). If he runs well at the combine, he could find himself in the third round of the 2012 draft.

Bears Select LB DeVonte Hollomon South Carolina

ANALYSIS
STRENGTHS Versatile defender with a strong overall build. Plays over the tight end, in the slot, in the stack. Long, thick arms make him a secure tackler once latching on, brings pop to his stops whether in the open field or backfield. Moves well laterally. Takes on blocks in the open field extremely well. Locks out arms, and anchors in. Showcases violent hands in ripping off blocks. Stands his ground, or lowers a shoulder against pulling guards and tight end blocks on the edge, providing containment. Offers strength and speed as a blitzer. Former safety shows some agility to stay with tight ends and some receivers off the line. Shows some hustle across the field and chasing plays from behind. Take advantage of poor throws to secure interceptions with his hands, looking the ball in even if it’s away from his frame.
WEAKNESSES Average fluidity and flexibility, often lunges for tackles. Will need to prove straight-line speed, seems to lack the ability to recover or track down faster ballcarriers from behind. Could be more physical knocking receivers off their routes off the line, and has the strength to do so.

Default Pick 156 or 157?

The Lions select Devin Taylor, DE South Carolina

(Boo, Boo, run Martinez)
Overview

Taylor redshirted his first year in Columbia after helping his high school team win a South Carolina state title with 10 sacks (he was also the state champion in the triple jump that year). He played well enough in 12 games in 2009 (starting the first five games, missed one due to a bruised sternum) to land on SEC coaches’ freshman all-conference squad (28 tackles, 5.5 for loss, two sacks). He had a breakout sophomore season, starting all 14 games and accumulating 13 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, and leading the team with eight pass breakups, receiving second-team All-SEC honors from league coaches. SEC media named Taylor first-team all-conference in 2010 and awarded him honorable mention accolades in his junior year even though his numbers decreased (8.5 tackles for loss, six sacks). He did have a strong effort (five tackles, two tackles for loss, sack) against Nebraska in the team’s Capital One Bowl victory. Taylor has returned both his career interceptions for touchdowns -– 24 yards against Tennessee in 2010 and 48 yards against Arkansas in 2011. As a senior in 2012, Taylor saw his sack number decline even further as he managed just three sacks. He matched his junior year total of 8.5 tackles for loss, and also managed to bat down six passes.
Analysis
Strengths
Taylor possess an ideal athletic frame for a strong-side defensive end. He stands at 6-foot-7, weighs 275 pounds, and it appears as if his frame is far from maxed out. Long strides can eat up grass quickly once he gets started. Fights through the B-gap on inside rushes. Height, length and big hands make him capable of regularly knocking down passes or at least obscuring his vision.
Weaknesses
Height and long legs prevent him from having elite short-area agility, change of direction ability, and closing speed. Often times can be lethargic in coming off the ball. Stands up almost immediately off the snap. Takes time to rip off blocks with long arms and slower hands, can be moved out of the hole by better linemen. Lacks flexibility to keep his balance while turning the corner. Shorter defenders can easily pop his chest, also gets knocked off his pass rush route (or to the ground) due to his height. Needs to use his length to full advantage, extending his arms to keep distance from tackles.
NFL Comparison
Kenny Iwebema
Bottom Line
Taylor has spent much of his time getting overshadowed by players like Melvin Ingram and Jadaveon Clowney. While Taylor is a physical specimen in his own right, he does not display proper quickness or pad level in order to be a consistent starting player in the NFL. However, Taylor is a player that isn't a stranger to hustle, and his length will make him an intriguing target to a team that thinks they can fix his pad level and pass rushing technqiue. Perhaps more intriguing however is the fact that his frame does not appear to be maxed out yet. It seems as if he can easily get to around 300 pounds, without sacrificing athleticism, which could interest 32 teams.

The next team is on the clock lol.

With the 161st selection, the Denver Broncos select:

William Gholston, DE, Michigan State, 6' 6", 281 lbs



STRENGTHS Looks the part of an NFL starter, with height, length, and a strong overall build. Holds the line and edge well when on his game, uses strong hands and long arms to get leverage. Very agile for his size, can move with tight ends and running backs in the flat, hurdle cut blockers, and stunt with explosiveness. Can be quick in short spaces once he's in motion.
WEAKNESSES Struggles to use his hands to disenage. Play seems to stop after making contact too often. Very leggy out of his stance, takes too many steps to get started. Loses his balance trying to turn the corner.

with the 163rd pick the Falcons select:


Keith Pough, LB (The Great University of Howard)



02/20/13 - 2013 NFL Combine, Most to gain: After an impressive career at Howard and a strong week at the East-West Shrine Game, Keith Pough is no longer an under-the-radar prospect. NFL scouts love his physical nature and confidence but do have some concerns about his speed and overall range. Pough doesn't need to run in the 4.4-range in the 40-yard dash, but scouts want to see him do better than the 4.8 times he has run in the past. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/18/13 - 2013 SHRINE GAME PRACTICE RISERS: 1. OLB Keith Pough, Howard (6016, 241 -- West Team)...With his performance on the practice field this week and through talking to NFL scouts, putting Pough at No. 1 was the easiest decision on this list. He showed off his natural athleticism and coordination during drills, and while he has room to get stronger, his aggressive and violent playing style was impressive. Pough's physical attributes stand out, but so does his approach to the game. He brings a non-stop motor and competitive attitude to the defense, regardless if it's practice or a game. Although he's still a tad rough around the edges, Pough is a player on the rise and it wouldn't be a shock if he ends up as one of the first players drafted from this year's Shrine Game. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/15/13 - EAST WEST SHRINE GAME - MONDAY PRACTICE: The most talkative award goes to Howard outside linebacker Keith Pough (West Team), who was barking all practice - not only at himself but also his teammates. While some view this as a negative, the coaching staff of the West squad appeared to encourage it, loving the energy he was showing while pushing those around him. Along with his gift for gab, Pough is also a very talented football player. He stood out during the linebacker drills as the best athlete of the group with excellent flexibility and agility for the position. Pough was the only linebacker during drills who didn't need reminding to "stay low" during blocking drills. He does have a few bad habits with lowering his head and keeping his eyes in the wrong place, but he is definitely a defensive prospect worth watching due to his athleticism and competitive nature. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

With the 164th pick in the 5th round, the Philadelphia Eagles select

Ricky Wagner, OT, Wisconsin
6' 6", 308



Achievements: 2012 All-Big Ten first team (coaches), 2011 All-Big Ten honorable mention (consensus), 2010 All-Big Ten honorable mention (consensus)

What he brings: Wagner has a solid, large frame, and scouts have been impressed with his initial quickness in pass protection. However, CBSSports.com points out that his technique as a run-blocker might be his best trait. Has some versatility, with experience at right and left tackle. Others have talked about Wagner’s strong upper body and legs, which help him give up little to no ground on bull rushes.

Notes: Wagner was responsible for protecting Russell Wilson‘s blind side in 2011, and he did a good job. Wilson was sacked 22 times that year, his lowest total in his four years for the Badgers. … Wagner decided to attend Wisconsin after losing out on some scholarship offers due to an eight-game suspension his senior year of high school for an athletic code violation involving alcohol.

With the 166th pick of the 2013 Orangemane NFL Mock Draft the
Miami Dolphins Proudly Select:

Ray Graham RB Pitt



When Graham and his half-brother Khaseem Greene (their father, Raymond Graham, played football at Purdue) say they’ll run into each other on Saturday –- they mean it. In fact, the Rutgers linebacker and 2011 Big East Defensive Player of the Year was part of six tackles against his brother in last October’s meeting (though Graham had 159 rushing yards on the day). This year, the teams meet in the penultimate regular season game –- but since both have NFL talent, it probably won’t be the last time their pads will pop.


Graham spent his first two years on campus as the back-up to Dion Lewis. He played in 13 games as a true freshman, carrying 61 times for 349 yards and four scores, and received more work in 2010 (two starts in 12 games; 148-922, eight TD rushing; 24 receptions for 213 yards, two TD receiving). In addition, Lewis returned 38 kicks for 838 yards over those first two years. It looked as though Graham was in for a big junior year as a full-time starter in 2011, rushing for 958 yards and nine touchdowns (and catching 30 passes for 200 yards) in the first eight weeks of the year before tearing his right ACL against Connecticut. He worked hard to make it back for his senior season, carrying the ball 14 times for 71 yards in the season opener. Graham’s play improved as the season went on, as he eclipsed the 100 yard mark in three of his final five games, with a 94 yard rushing performance vs South Florida to end his season, but he suffered a hamstring injury in bowl practices which kept him out of the BBVA Compass Bowl. His impressive work as a runner (222-1042-11 TDs) and receiver (36-340-2 TDs) earned him All-Big East first-team honors.
ANALYSIS
STRENGTHS Undersized but explosive back who runs with no wasted movement, Not shy about running through compressed spaces and picks his way through trash well inside. Tough inside runner who uses vision, feel and quick lateral movement to sidestep defenders to find space to run in the box. Accelerates in a hurry once he get the hole, rips off five or six yards in the blink of an eye. Spins off tackles with feet churning, stays balanced to keep forward movement. Uses the same lean and excellent balance to win one-on-one battles outside. Solid receiving threat out of the backfield. Catches the ball naturally with his hands before accelerating upfield and shows the ability to adjust to the ball. Lines up in the slot on occasion, shows quickness in his routes to create mismatches in space. Gives good effort to mirror and sustain blocks against rushers in pass protection. Patient reading and following his pulling linemen. Experienced running base NFL run plays from under center.
WEAKNESSES Only average in his overall size, might have more trouble moving piles and breaking tackles inside against NFL defenders. Gets going east-west too and will hit the cutback too early. Won’t elude pro defenders as easily. Durability is a concern. Has not started a full season, missing on his opportunity in 2011 due to a right ACL tear and his bowl game in 2012 due to a hamstring. Did not play with the same top-end elusiveness and breakaway speed he showed before his knee injury.
NFL COMPARISON Ahmad Bradshaw
BOTTOM LINE The next Pittsburgh running back likely to make his way to the NFL, Graham looked to translate his quickness between the tackles to a big year in 2011 (958 yards, nine touchdowns in eight games) before a torn right ACL struck him down. Graham has averaged six yards a carry for Pitt in his first three years, but durability will be more important to scouts if he is to maximize his draft grade as a senior and join half-brother and Rutgers linebacker Khaseem Greene as top 75 picks. He did not appear to be playing in 2012 at 100 percent, as he looked noticeably less explosive and his yards per carry dipped (4.7). Being another year removed from his ACL tear could give him the rare elusiveness and top-end speed he once showed however, and he could be one of the steals of the 2012 draft if he checks out medically.

VERY HAPPY TO ADD GRAHAM at this point in the draft. Takes Reggie's Spot.

The Green Bay Packers select Marquise Goodwin WR Texas



Height: 5-9. Weight: 183. Arm: 31.48. Hand: 8.58.
40 Time: 4.27.
Projected Round (2013): 4-6.
3/23/13: Goodwin didn't have a lot of production in college, but he has had an excellent postseason to help his draft stock. Goodwin blazed an amazing Combine 40 time with a tremendous 10-yard split of 1.43 seconds. Those were the fastest times of any receiver. It wasn't that surprising considering he was a track athlete.

Goodwin didn't perform as well in the field drills, which illustrated he is still a work in progress as a wide out. Goodwin needs to work on his hands and route-running.

Goodwin did well at the Senior Bowl and gave cornerbacks problems with his speed all week. He had 26 receptions for 340 yards and three touchdowns in 2012, including a 64-yard touchdown run against Oregon State. On the ground, Goodwin ran for 140 yards on 13 carries with three scores. He had more receiving production as a junior with 33 catches for 421 yards and two touchdowns. His sophomore (31-324-1) and freshman (30-279-1) years featured some production.

With the 169th pick in the 2013 OM NFL DRAFT.......THE JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS select:

Tharold Simon, CB, LSU
6'2" 202LBS.
4.51



Strengths: Elite size; long arms. Plays very quick; able to make quick and sudden cuts and breaks on the ball. He is very solid in man to man coverage. Does a great job of finding the ball in the air and plays the pass like a wideout. Also shows pretty good awareness in zone coverage and keeps eyes on QB. Has good play recognition, reads plays often. Is a very physical corner, using his hands and arms very effectively. Does a great job of knocking the ball out of the receiver’s hands often. Shows pretty fluid hips for a big guy. Has great movement skills. Very impressive jumping ability. Able to make sure tackles and even does a nice job of tackling in space. Can be an effective blitzer.

Weaknesses: I think he needs to find the right balance in the aggressiveness in his game. Often I see him overly aggressive and then there are even times where I am thinking he should have been more aggressive and physical. He needs to find the balance. He tends to over-pursue at times; needs to stay in control. I think he has very impressive footwork (quickness, flexibility), but I saw him get caught flat footed a lot. I believe he has to improve on this for the next level. I would like to see him disengage from blocks better. Overall strength could be better, only did 9 reps on the bench at the combine. Speed is not elite.

Summary: Tharold Simon stood out to me this year as an underrated prospect. For me personally, I like seeing big corners that can move and Simon fits that mold. Along with his size, I saw the physicality that you want to see in bigger corners. He’s not afraid to use his size to help out in the run or make open field tackles. I am also intrigued by his cover skills. I like the competitiveness I see in him and the potential ball hawking ability I see in him. I think Simon has the ability to be a great CB in the NFL and although he does have some issues he needs to improve on.

With the 170th pick in the OM draft, the St. Louis Rams select:

Everett Dawkins, DT, Florida State Seminoles
6’2”, 292, 5.06, Bench: 23, Shuttle: 4.88, Cone: 7.61



Overview:
Everett Dawkins has been a mainstay up front for the Seminole defense, starting 40 games in his four-plus seasons in Tallahassee. The defensive tackle is one of the few remaining figures that played through the transition from the Bobby Bowden to Jimbo Fisher Era. As is always the case with interior defensive linemen, there is difficulty in evaluations because stats hardly tell how successful a lineman is in terms of affecting the play.

Dawkins plays the role of a traditional 4-3 defensive tackle, meaning he is lined up on the outside shoulder of the guard across from him (three-technique). Though he has been a big part of the Seminole defense's success against the run, there were times over the past few seasons that he and fellow starter Anthony McCloud could be moved off the ball. Dawkins' Senior Bowl appearance will go a long way in terms of scouting and coaching projections moving forward.

Strengths:
Dawkins is a capable interior lineman that can clog and neutralize running lanes. Lateral speed and agility are above average for the position. He also has upside in terms of being able to rush the passer.

Weaknesses:
Dawkins and his linemates this year did not affect the pocket or make as many plays in the opponents' backfield as expected. There were sequences in games against the likes of USF, Miami and others in which the starting defensive interior was pushed off the ball as well.

Where does he fit in the NFL?

Across the board, scouts are projecting Dawkins as a rotational interior defensive lineman. While that role does not include starters reps, it is considered vitally important if a team is to succeed against pass and run over 16-game and (potentially) playoff seasons. Dawkins has been tied to the Carolina Panthers by ESPN's Scouts Inc. because of the Panthers' glaring need at the position. (Warchant)


Comment: Should be a solid rotational guy in the middle for the Rams. If there’s more to the story, I’m sure Req will let us know.

Pick made at 12:20 MST
Next up: Detroit Lions

Adopt-a-Bronco:
Julius "Fluff"
Default With Pick 171

In the OM draft the Lions select: David Bass DE, Missouri Western State
Overview

Just like every year, a few small schoolers break onto the scene and perform very well on an equal playing field. Bass is one of these prospects, as he was the most consistent pass rusher at the East-West Shrine game. The senior broke two records during his final year at Missouri Western State breaking the school's career sack (39.5) and consecutive starts (50). When asked the one word to describe himself, Bass answered "beast".



Bass immediately started as a freshman in all 12 games, finishing with 47 tackles, 9.5 for loss and 6.5 sacks. In 2010, Bass put up similar numbers in the same 12 starts, with 47 tackles, 10.5 for loss, and eight sacks. His production only went up, with 14.5 sacks in 12 starts as a junior on 20 tackles for loss. Bass' 14 starts in 2012 were a career high and tallied 11.5 sacks.

Pick was made at 1:48 Central time
Oakland Raiders are now on the clock.

Moving him inside to Guard The Cleveland browns select:

J.C. Tretter OT/G From Cornell. 6'4" 307 lbs.

STRENGTHS Athletic build. Possess light feet, and has the athletic ability to mirror pass rushers. Flexible, shows the ability to bend. Moves well laterally. Plays with good balance. Quick off the ball. Recognizes stunts and blitzes well, and has the coordination to execute multiple blocks in these situations.


WEAKNESSES Limited experience and played against weak competition. Will likely have to move to guard, due to a lack of length. Lacks core strength. While he's light on his feet, his foot quickness needs to improve.

BOTTOM LINE Tretter is an athletic offensive lineman, who will likely have to move to the inside at the next level. He plays the game with good balance and coordination. However there will be questions about his length, strength, and the competition he played. Tretter looks to be a nice long-term upside type.

Pick made at 7:05 pm PST time
