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. That’s 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 DT’s 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 LB’s 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 doesn’t have the big time stats. So my advice is to look at Rob’s 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.

With the 109th pick in the NFL draft, the New Orleans Saints are crossing their fingers and taking a chance on:

Tommy Blake, DE, TCU



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....)

With the #110th pick the Buffalo Bills select:

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.


Pick was made at 10:21 EST. The Philidelphia Eagles are now on the clock.

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 conference’s 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. “There’s no doubt about that,” Indians Coach Steve Roberts said of Johnson’s selection. “Tyrell 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.” 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 Johnson’s fellow safety, Khayyam Burns. Burns, another four-year starter out of Fort Smith, finished his career as the Sun Belt’s 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 “Tyrell” Johnson improved his stock as a senior and could be one of the top safeties drafted. He’s 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 SBC’s 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 Belt’s 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.

Via trade to pick 115, The Cleveland Browns are thrilled to steal another guy who dropped:

Cornerback from LSU: Chevis Jackson



A late second to third round prospect, Jackson played in the ever competitive SEC where he broke up sixteen passes, made 44 tackles and recorded a career high 5 interceptions.

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

Quote:
Originally Posted by ESPN via Scouts Inc.
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.

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.

Strengths:
Good size...A very good athlete...Plays faster than he times..A natural runner with excellent vision and instincts..Strong, tough and powerful...Runs hard and doesn't go down easily...Great feet...Terrific balance and agility...Soft hands and can catch the ball out of the backfield...An adequate blocker..Was extraordinarily productive.

Weaknesses:

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.

Could be a base end in a 4-3 scheme, a 3-4 end or a 3-4 outside linebacker...Tore his ACL in 2005 and dealt with a shoulder injury in 2006...Late emerging prospect who really began to pick up a lot of momentum in scouting circles late in the 2007 season...Might never be a star or a double-digit sack guy at the next level but his versatility and promise will make him a relatively valuable commodity on Draft Day.

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...
