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

John Sullivan, OC, Notre Dame



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.

The pick was made at 3:25 CST.

The Seattle Seahawks are on the clock. See you all in round 5.

With the 86th pick, Seattle selects NC State DT, DeMario Pressley



This selection ensures, despite the loss of vet Chuck Darby, that Seattle's vaunted DT rotation will continue to be one of the league's best.

OK, Hawk's time is up. I'm not going to panic because it's Sunday. I'll give Hawk's until noon on Monday to select before looking for a replacement.

Lex Sez:

The Chicago Bears select Josh Johnson, QB, San Diego. The Bears can stand to add some versatility in at the QB position. We feel Josh Johnson is the best all around QB in the draft and has proven he is very coachable. We are delighted to have him on our team.

With the #90 pick in the 2008 NFL Draft

The Green Bay Packers select:



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.

The Colts select...
DONNIE AVERY
Wide Receiver | Senior | Houston

Official Bio

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.

Patriots at 94
Jordy Nelson

WR | (6'2", 215, 4.509) | KANSAS STATE

Scouts Grade: 80
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 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.

Thomas DeCoud, Safety, University of California

http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/ima...uegradient.gif) repeat-y" colSpan=2>Thomas DeCoud
Height: 6-13/8 | Weight: 207 | 40-Time: 4.50

Official Bio

Strengths:
Very good natural athlete...Has terrific size with long arms...Does an excellent job versus the run...Physical and aggressive...Reliable tackler who can deliver the big hit...Has fluid hips to turn and run in coverage..Fantastic range...Still improving...Is versatile with experience at safety and cornerback...A outstanding special teamer.

Weaknesses:
Timed speed is just average...Doesn't have great instincts..Needs to keep his pad level down...Lacks a burst to recover...Sub par hands and ball skills...He'll have to bulk up...Prone to biting on fakes...Inexperienced and is still learning the position.

Notes:
Began his college career as a cornerback and only moved to safety in 2005...Does it all on special teams (blocks kicks, covers) and could play in the league based on that skill alone...A developing prospect who still has some upside...A well-rounded player and is one of the top senior safeties available..Should at the absolute least be a top-notch backup and he definitely has the potential to start at the pro level.

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

http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/sco...scandrick.html
http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/...ndrick?id=2307




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.


Quote:
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, 60, 207, Iowa




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)

Pick made at 2:40 PM, mountain time, 3/17/08. Arkansas Bronco and the Falcons are up and have been notified.

The Baltimore Ravens select:

Barry Richardson, OT, Clemson
Height: 6-65/8 | Weight: 320 | 40-Time: 5.42

Strengths:
Outstanding size with a huge frame and long arms...Terrific athleticism...Very light on his feet...Great lateral mobility and range...Gets to the second level...Excellent pass blocker...Good body control...Once he locks on the battle's over...Has a lot of experience against big-time competition...Offers some versatility...Still has upside.

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
