In the fourth round with pick #127
the colts pick



T.J. Lang
Height: 6-4 | Weight: 312 | Position:OT | College: Eastern Michigan
Player Profile Draft TrackerOther OT

Latest News
02/05/2009 - Tennessee found a pretty promising defensive end in the second round last year when the Titans drafted Jason Jones. Now, there's another player coming out of the MAC school that the Bears are keeping a close eye on. The team is expected to bring in offensive tackle T.J. Lang for a visit some time after his pro day later this month, according to a report. Lang is a three-year starter at left tackle who started on the other side of the ball. Maybe it's his background on defense that gives him a nasty demeanor NFL types like. Ultimately, he could project inside or at right tackle. He didn't miss a game the last three seasons and is considered a physical performer. At the Texas vs. The Nation Game, which general manager Jerry Angelo scouted, Lang was worked at both center and guard, as well as tackle, and reportedly did well. The Eagles will hold their pro day March 16. - Brad Biggs, Chicago Sun-Times

Overview

A lot of NFL fans hadn't heard of last year's EMU riser, Tennessee third-round pick DE Jason Jones, before the draft, but he was an immediate contributor on the Titans' excellent defensive line. Lang's toughness and versatility could force him into the top four rounds as well. The 2008 second-team All-MAC pick started at left tackle the past two years after lining up at right tackle as a sophomore and even starting the season opener as a true freshman (played in all 11 games). Lang will start inside at the next level, but could be a spot reserve at any line spot, which is a valuable skill.

Analysis
Positives: Good height with thick and strong upper and lower bodies. Absolute mauler who works hard on - and through - every play. Versatile enough to start at all three interior spots. Gets down quickly and is effective on cut blocks. Strong enough to stone and pancake his opponent. Fires out of his stance and uses his hands well on run plays; gets inside his man's jersey and doesn't let go. Punches and extends his arms to hold off defenders in pass protection. Good enough feet to get to linebackers, pull and trap. Aware enough to help the tackle and center on the same play. Hustles downfield on screens and reverses to throw the late block. Negatives: Must learn to play inside in the NFL because he lacks the athleticism, arm length and hand size to be more than a short-term solution outside. Leans into his man too much, enabling the tackle to rip him off or pull him forward on a second effort. Tries to grab his man's jersey on most every play instead of punching and resetting, which will be a problem against quicker defensive tackles.

2007 Season
Started at left tackle.

2006 Season
Started all 12 games, 10 at offensive right tackle and two, the Kent State (Nov. 17) and Northern Illinois (Nov. 24) games, at offensive left tackle … Chosen by the coaching staff for five single-game awards … Named the Offensive Player of the Game at Louisiana Lafayette (Sept. 30) … Earned a Championship Performance award against Toledo (Oct. 21), Championship Special Teams awards for the Central Michigan (Sept. 23) and Bowling Green (Oct. 14) games and a Winning Performance award versus Central Michigan.

With Pick #128 the Carolina Panthers are pessimistically optimistic about selecting:

Rhett Bomar, QB, Sam Houston State, 6'2", 225 lb

The reasoning goes, we have to replace Jake the Mistake (sooner than later), and since drafting a QB is a crap shoot, we like the odds of drafting a QB who wears #7 on his chest, likes orange, and makes money at a car dealership.



Strengths: Adequate height and size, with strong bicep development. His quick release and arm strength allow him to throw accurately over the middle, across the field or on the run (to his left and right) from under center or the shotgun. Displayed above-average mobility, even early in the season when wearing a brace to protect a torn left ACL suffered late in 2007 (missed last two games). Can move within the pocket to find a passing lane and keep defenses honest by running for first downs (and more).

Weaknesses: Strong leader, but straddles the line between confident and cocky. Lacks the size that can propel FCS quarterbacks like Joe Flacco into the first round. Locks onto receivers and gets stuck in the pocket (leading to sacks) if his primary read is not available. Needs a bit more air under this deep throws and must take some zip off short touch throws. Threw 13 interceptions in 2008, usually when trying to force a ball deep to keep his team in the ballgame.

Compares To: JONATHAN "J.P." LOSMAN, ex-Buffalo -- Yes, they are both blessed with great arm strength and show good mobility running with the ball, but sometimes their confidence can be taken for cockiness and arrogance. Bomar showed at the Senior Bowl that he can make all the throws, but he looked like he tried to carry the team on his shoulders too much last year. That, coupled by his tendency to lock on to his primary target too long and a noticeable drop in his production as a runner, makes you wonder if he is just a rifle-armed passer who will be carrying a clipboard for the majority of his career. The jury is out, and he certainly did not take the world by storm during two years playing against inferior competition at Sam Houston State.

With the 129th Pick the Giants select: Xavier Fulton OT, Illinois

The Giants need to groom another OT for the future, and Fulton's potential is what the Giants love here in the 4th round.

Analysis Positives: Naturally large man with the frame to add at least an additional 10-15 pounds without a significant loss of quickness. ... Raw, but possesses rare tools. ... Lacks consistency with his initial quickness off the snap, but gets excellent depth in his kick slide to protect the edge as a pass rusher. ... Natural knee bender who plays with balance. ... Still learning to use his hands, but flashes explosiveness in his hand punch and the ability to turn and sustain. ... Athletic enough to block on the move. ... Hustles to the second and even third level. ... Only beginning to scratch the surface of his talent after spending the first three years of his career at defensive tackle.

Negatives: Raw. ... Made the transition to the offensive line in 2007 and was surrounded by experienced line mates and ultra-athletic skill position players, aiding in his development. ... Too often late off the snap for a player of his athleticism. ... Relies on athleticism, rather than technique, to control his man and can be walked back to the quarterback when he plays too high, exposing his chest. ... Flashes a good initial pop in run blocking, but is not a masher. ... Good athleticism, but can get out of control blocking on the move, allowing his assignment to evade him. Legitimate durability concern: Torn ACL ended his 2005 season prematurely and forced Fulton to take a medical redshirt for the '06 season. ... Struggled with a shoulder sprain throughout the second half of the 2008 season.

Pick was made at 9:40 PM MST, Lycan and the Titans are on the clock!

The Steelers select Louis Vasquez, OL, Texas Tech.

Strengths: Is strong and aggressive; blocks with the attitude that is hard to find among guard prospects. Has impressive natural strength and is able to stonewall bull rushers. Does a good job of eliminating the defender on downside blocks and on side in-line run blocks. Gets through the line of scrimmage quickly to deliver a hard initial blow to the linebacker. Does a good job of communicating and working with other linemen to switch off and handle stunts. Excels in helping his linemates when he doesn't have a blocking assignment.

Weaknesses: Lacks the playing speed to pull and get out in front to lead block effectively on outside runs. Does not do a good job of staying under control when blocking out in space. Reaches and grabs at times, leading to missed blocks. Goes through stretches where he blocks too high.

Bottom line: Vasquez displays a toughness that isn't seen much in the NFL. Players like him often end up doing better in the pros because of their physical style.

Was just reading the draft so far again and realized that Antoine Caldwell, my original pick, was already picked but for some reason he isn't listed on the alphabetical list of players taken. So here is my pick:

With the 135th pick the Tennessee Titans select Worrell Williams, ILB, Califiornia



Strengths:
Good athleticism...Is quick and agile with a burst...Decent bulk and a solid frame...A reliable tackler...Able to deliver the big hit...Good strength...Works through traffic well...Has a great motor...Intense and competitive...Versatile...Durable and experienced...Good bloodlines.

Weaknesses:
Shorter than you'd prefer...Does not have great timed speed...Lacks fluid hips...Average, at best, in coverage...Questionable instincts and awareness...Is too aggressive at times...Has trouble getting off blocks.

Pick made at 3:58 PM EST.

sorry was not listed in the alphabet thing
ravens now try to select Kaluka Maiava olb from USC
Maiava is a very quick linebacker that plays with a lot of aggressiveness. He flies around the field with a motor that never stops. He is quick to diagnose the play, and wastes no time flowing to the action. He throws his body around without regard for injury, and plays bigger than his size because of it. Maiava has shown the instincts, quickness, speed, and toughness that projects to the NFL as a weakside linebacker.

I don't believe this trade is legal. Washington's #243 is a comp pick and comp picks may not be traded. However, Kaylore will give a final ruling on this.

That's my bad because I didn't even check. Yes in the interest of realism, we are not allowing people to trade comped picks because you can't trade them in real life. Sorry guys.

Also please know that the alphabetical list is a guideline only. You have to scroll up to see if your pick was actually taken by someone. There's been more than a few that I've seen and been excited about only to scroll up and see them taken already.

Yeah, sorry guys. I don't know how I'm missing some of the guys getting to the Alpha list. I'm doing it in Mock I as well. Maybe I shouldn't do so much crack before I get on the internet.

Ah well, I will try harder to record things correctly. If anyone sees an error on the Alpha list or selection list, please PM me!

With pick number #136 and the end of round four the colts pick


Chris Clemons, SS, Clemson
Height: 6-0. Weight: 208.
Projected 40 Time: 4.56.
Combine 40 Time: 4.41.
Benchx225: . Vertical: .
Projected Round (2009): 3-4.
2/25/09: Just pencil Chris Clemons into Oakland's third-round slot right now. Clemons ran a Combine-best 40 for safeties (4.41) and also had a 10-7 broad jump.

12/14/08: The Eagles should draft this guy so they can have two Chris Clemonses and confuse the heck out of everyone. This Clemons tallied 72 tackles, 2.5 TFL, three passes broken up and a pick-six.

2007: "Clemson's Chris Clemons." Try saying that 10 times in a row. One of the top tacklers in the ACC, Chris Clemons had an outstanding sophomore campaign in 2006, registering 102 tackles, good for second most on the team.

With the 138th pick in the Draft...the Rams are happy to select WR Derrick Williams of Penn State.

Quote:
Williams is a jack of all trades type, and that versatility will help him in the NFL. He has played wide receiver, quarterback, running back, punt returner, and kick returner for the Nittany Lions. He clearly projects as a wide receiver but his athleticism has allowed him to impact the game in many ways. Williams is a good natural athlete, that is shifty and tough to catch in the open field. His quickness and ability to change direction suit him very well with the ball in his hands, and will allow him to make plays as a receiver and returner.

He showed up at the combine ill but decided to run anyway. He clocked a very disappointing 4.64, but you have to admire the competitiveness to get out and perform. At his pro day, he fared much better, running as low as a 4.37. His pro day performance is more along the lines of what you saw on the field, although he does not quite appear to be as fast as that timing with the pads on.



Rams recap-
1. Jason Smith, OT, Baylor
2. Louis Delmas, S, Western Michigan
3. Duke Robinson, G, Oklahoma
4. Jason Phillips, LB, TCU
5. Derrick Williams, WR, Penn State

With the 139th pick in the 2009 draft, the Kanzis Sch!tty Chefs select:


Travis Beckum
TE - Wisconsin


Fast and an excellent route-runner, Beckum has soft hands and catches a high percentage of first downs. Not a great blocker, but Brad Cottam - the 2nd year chefs tight end from Tennessee - is an excellent blocker. Sometimes it takes two players to replace a legend, and now the Chefs now have a 1-2 punch ... a poor man's Graham-Scheffler combo. The new regime can now trade or release 14-year, hi-cap and salary man Tony Gonzalez.





Pick made 7:23 PM Mountain Time.

The Denver Broncos select:

Terrance Knighton, DT, Temple

Strengths:
Great size and bulk...Has long arms and big hands...Above average athleticism...Quick with decent speed...Nice balance and agility...Is mobile with great range...Does a nice job in pursuit...Has a good motor...Offers some positional and schematic versatility...Has upside.

Weaknesses:
Is not real strong or powerful...Won't offer much as a pass rusher...A limited repertoire of moves...Lacks great awareness...Doesn't always use proper leverage...Poor hand use...Raw and not a great technician.

Notes:
Attended Milford Academy prep school for a year (2004) after high school...Was a three-year starter...Earned extensive playing time as a true freshman...Took over a starting job in 2006...Blocked three kicks in 2007...Named 1st Team All-MAC in 2008...Was the Owls Defensive MVP in '07 and '08...A team captain as a senior...Intriguing prospect with some exciting physical tools but is still a bit of a project.

3/29/09: It's appears very likely that Terrance Knighton will be drafted in the middle rounds. He shed four pounds between his Combine and Pro Day, and managed to run a very impressive 4.93.

With the 142nd pick in the draft, Atlanta selects....

Herman Johnson, OL, Louisiana State University

Weaknesses:
Isn't very quick or agile...Not a natural knee bender...Doesn't always play with proper leverage...Lacks great balance...Footwork leaves something to be desired...Limited mobility...Weight and conditioning are concerns...Struggles in space...Won't be an ideal fit for every team.

Notes:
Nickname is "The House"...The biggest player in Bayou Bengal history...Weighed 15 pounds, 14 ounces at birth and is listed as one of the biggest babies ever born in the state of Louisiana...Weighed more than 400 pounds when he arrived in Baton Rouge...Was a three-year starter...Played in two games as a true freshman but sat out the rest of the year while he recovered from an infected spider bite and was granted a medical redshirt...Could also be tried at right tackle...Best fit will come with a team that likes to pound the ball and he won't get a second look from teams that utilize a zone blocking scheme...An intriguing and freakish prospect who is exactly the type of guy the late George Young had in mind when he coined the "Planet Theory", which states that there are only a finite number of 300-pound men (or in this case 400-pound) on this planet who can run and hit and play football.
The Falcons add a little planet theory to the OL depth chart. They're still short on size along the OL from the Alex Gibbs days, and Mike Mularkey typically runs a more traditional running scheme. Adding a project like Johnson gives them the potential for a real road grading RG or RT, whichever one he slots into best.

Not sure why I got skipped, but:

The Bengals select:

Mike Thomas, WR, Arizona

Height: 5-77/8 | Weight: 195 | 40-Time: 4.40

Strengths:
Great speed and quickness with a burst...Has a strong, solid build...Very elusive with terrific vision and instincts...Runs good routes...Nice body control and ball skills...Pretty good leaper...Tough and isn't afraid to work the middle...Good work ethic...Extremely competitive...Can also contribute as a return man...Super productive.

Weaknesses:
Does not have the height that you look for...Will have lapses in concentration and drop some balls...Has trouble beating the jam...Isn't really a vertical threat...Minor character concerns ... Upside is limited.

Notes:
Profiles as a slot receiver at the next level...Was a four-year starter for the Wildcats...Passed Derek Hagan to become the Pac-10 Conferences all-time leader in career receptions...Was named 1st Team All-Pac-10 as a junior and a senior...Also earned 1st Team All-Pac-10 honors as a punt returner in '08...Not star material but can help a team in a lot of different ways...Style and game are eerily reminiscent of Bobby Wade.
