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

The New York Jets select:

William Franklin, WR, 6’1”, 214, Missouri



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)

Pick made 2:34 MST, Arkansas Bronco notified.

Donald Thomas was already selected by Pittsburgh. I had failed to list him on the Alpha list, my bad. 24CB has been PMed.

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.

Colts Select...

Keenan Burton, WR, Kentucky



Height: 6-01/2 | Weight: 201 | 40-Time: 4.46

Official Bio

Strengths:
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.

The San Francisco 49ers Select:

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.

The Chicago Bears select:

Jacob Hester, FB LSU


Strengths:
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.





Quote:
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 — a first- or second-round draft choice when healthy — now faces in his football future.

The New Orleans Saints select:

Corey Lynch, FS, Appalachian State



Corey Lynch
Number: 47
Class: Sr.
Hometown: Cape Coral, Fla.
High School: Evangelical Christian
Height: 6-0
Weight: 205
Position: DB
Birthdate: May 7, 1985

And his 2007 stats were:

2007 stats:
111 tackles (71 solo tackles, 40 assists)
6 interceptions (114 returns yards)
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 league’s 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 ASU’s second-straight national title ... blocked three field goals on the campaign — just one shy of the school’s 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 FU’s 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 ASU’s top three in six different defensive categories — interceptions (5), tackles (85), pass break-ups (6), blocked kicks (3), touchdowns (2) and fumble recoveries (1).

2005: Earned first-team all-America status from I-AA.org and second-team plaudits from the Associated Press and The Sports Network ... first-team all-conference selection by the league’s coaches and media ... started all 15 games at safety ... tied for Southern Conference lead and ranked 30th in the nation with six interceptions ... ranked fifth on the squad with 92 tackles ... was second on team with seven pass break-ups ... recorded multiple tackles in 13 of 15 games ... returned from severe elbow injury in 2004 to pick off two passes in season opener at Eastern Kentucky ... made one of the most important plays of the season when he chased down EKU receiver Andre Ralston at the 1 yard line on the final play of the first half ... notched seven tackles at Kansas ... for the second time in three games, intercepted two passes to help lead rout of nationally ranked Coastal Carolina ... returned the two INTs a total of 50 yards ... fumbled on return of one of the picks, which was scooped up by ASU’s Jason Hunter and taken the rest of the way for a touchdown ... had his fifth interception in four games at The Citadel ...broke up a pass in narrow loss at Furman ... forced a fumble in 24-7 rout over nationally ranked Georgia Southern ... had 10 tackles and a pass break-up versus Chattanooga ... recorded a season-high 11 stops and a PBU in romp over Western Carolina ... totaled 23 tackles and four pass break-ups in first three playoff games ... notched his sixth interception of the season in national semifinal win over Furman.

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 … 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 … made 13 tackles in two contests, including a team-high nine stops at Wyoming … 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 league’s 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.

High School: Rushed for 3,000 yards and registered 31 interceptions over his career ... a two-time Class A all-state and all-Lee County honoree ... twice honored as the District 16 Player of the Year ... as a senior, he rushed 120 times for 1,101 yards and 11 touchdowns, caught 18 passes for 490 yards and seven scores … notched 93 tackles and 11 interceptions on his way to being named Lee County Defensive Player of the Year ... a three-time Fort Myers News-Press all-area pick ... National Honor Society member.

Personal: Full name is Corey Austin Lynch ... born May 7, 1985 (22 years old) ... son of Linda and Brian Lynch ... majoring in physics.

Height: 5-10. Weight: 204.
Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.42.
Benchx225: 25. Vertical: 41.5.
Projected Round: 6-7.

Put up the most reps of 225 pounds of any safety in this class, with the exception of Arkansas State's Tyrell Johnson. Also managed a 4.42, which is great for his size. As a senior, Rocky Schwartz led Houston with 87 tackles. Picked off two passes in the process.

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




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?


Quote:
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 didn’t 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.

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.

Pick made at 7-45am Eastern Time. San Diego are on the clock
