With the 22nd pick in the 2008 NFL Draft the Dallas Cowboys select.....



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

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 the 27th pick of the 2008 orangemane mock draft the San Diego Chargers select road grader Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College.



The man is massive at 6'7" 319. He will immediately improve the already potent running game. Will be a factor in the red zone. LT's smilin.



Balmer was a consideration.

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



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

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.

With the 29th selestion in the 2008 NFL draft, The San Francisco 49ers select:



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.


Year Gms Cths Yds Avg TDs
2005 10 61 893 14.6 10
2006 10 51 722 14.2 10
2007 13 79 1,125 14.2 16
Totals 33 191 2,740 14.3 36


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



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.

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

(511 188 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.




Dan Connor LB 63 233 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.


Rams picks

15. Safety Kenny Phillips (Miami U)
33. OLB Dan Connor (PSU)

With the 37th pick in the NFL common draft, and a great deal of relief, the New Orleans Saints select:
Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona
Antoine Cason, CB,






Career Notes
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.


Analysis
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.



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.



Compares To: CHRIS McALISTER-Baltimore...Cason's game is similar to that of the Ravens' McAlister, another former Arizona cornerback. He looks natural making plays on the ball in flight, showing the long arms and reach to get to the ball at its high point. 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.


ExpatFan’s Notes: I had Cason ranked as my #3 cornerback, behind Cromartie-Rodgers and Jenkins, and roughly 20th 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….


Pick made on Wednesday, March 5th, at:
10:50 p.m. Abu Dhabi time
