BroncoBuff stepping in ...

With the 199th pick of the draft, the MINNESOTA VIKINGS select ...


Adam Ulatoski
OT Texas


Phil Loadholt and Bryant McKinnie seem solid to me, but all the sites said OT is a Vikings need, so we'll bag one in the 6th.

Adam Ulatoski was a four-year starter for the Longhorns ... RT in '06 and '07, LT in '08 and '09. All Big XII last two years. At 6-7 305, he is a strong, smart and well-coached player. Can back up both tackle positions for now, long term best case scenario he could develop into a David Stewart type player.

He's a high-character guy, so he might feel out of place with the Vikings ... but then again he might start a trend.




Pick made Saturday 12:15 a.m.

Info on Rod Coleman:

Six seniors at Auburn University worked out indoors on FieldTurf for scouts from 28 NFL teams. DE/OLB Antonio Coleman (6-1, 248) ran a 4.78 and 4.77 40-yard dash, had a 33.5-inch vertical leap, 9-foot, 8-inch broad jump, 4.46 short shuttle, 7.09 three-cone drill and kept his bench press results from the combine. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

After serving in a backup role in 2006, Coleman developed into one of the SEC's most feared pass-rushers in '07 and '08, earning all-conference accolades both seasons and posting a combined 29 tackles for loss and 15 sacks.

Coleman started off slow as a senior, partially tearing a ligament in his wrist that required a cast on his right hand and made it difficult for him to fight through blocks. Once the cast was removed, however, Coleman was a terror -- posting 7.5 sacks and 11.5 tackles for loss over his final seven games, including the Outback Bowl victory over Northwestern. Despite his slow start, Coleman led the SEC in tackles for loss (16.5) and sacks (10) in 2009.

Coleman's production behind the line of scrimmage is impossible to ignore. So too, however, is his lack of size, which is why so many of his total tackles (151) occur for loss. Coleman may have to prove he's athletic and instinctive enough for coverage.

With the 214th pick the Cleveland Browns select Danario Alexander, WR, Missouri



6'5", 215 lbs.

Alexander is a huge WR with adequate straight-line speed and good ball skills, especially when going over the middle and catching the ball in traffic. He is competitive to the ball when covered and should have an immediate impact as a red zone receiver at the next level. He still needs work on his route running skills as he will telegraph his moves at times. He is more than just a willing blocker and has shown the kind of work ethic and competitiveness to make you think he could develop into a quality receiver at the next level.

Very tall with a monster frame and good bulk. Has the toughness and strong hands to make difficult catches in traffic. High points the ball effectively making him a red zone threat. Very fluid player that lowers his hips and maintains speed in and out of breaks. Great blocker that does not shy away from contact.

Takes too long to get into top gear and struggles to get separation on underneath routes. Raw route runner that struggles to set up defensive backs and find holes in coverage. Has struggled to stay on the field due to three major knee surgeries.

buffalo bills select- Roddrick Muckleroy ILB Texas


Pass Rush/Blitz: Used as a pass rusher from the middle in 2009, he has the quickness and the tackling ability to attack the QB or be effective in the run blitz. Agile enough to jump over running back cut blocks. Good change-of-direction agility to track the quarterback down outside the pocket. Must prove he is strong enough to get off NFL fullback blocks and drag down stronger pro quarterbacks and running backs in the backfield.
Intangibles: Quiet intimidator. Hustles on the field and knows his responsibilities. Known for his knowledge of the game and film study. Earned Frank Medina Rehabilitation Award for coming back from ruptured tendon in right ring finger suffered in 2006. No major character issues. NFL Comparison: Michael Boley, New York Giants

With the 221st pick of the OM 2010 NFL Draft.

The New England Patriots select

Joe Hawley OG/OC UNLV


Analysis
Pass blocking: Quick pass set, but often lines up in a two-point stance in UNLV's spread offense. Keeps feet moving after initial contact to stay in front of defender. Strong punch, but will overextend and lose his balance. Quick feet to maintain contact throughout the play, even when defenders take advantage of space afforded them with the line's wide splits. Plays with good leverage, and rarely gets pushed back into the quarterback. Good pre-snap awareness; will point out blitzers to the center. Picks up extra rushers quite well, punching his man and recoiling to catch and hold up the linebacker. Agile enough to help out tackles on the edge, but his consistent lunging at ends in space allows them to avoid or shed him too easily.

Run blocking: Mauler inside who latches onto defenders (both inside and outside the numbers) and does not let go. Strong enough to turn his man out of the hole. Keeps feet moving after contact; capable of driving three-technique tackles into the ground through his effort to sustain the block. Willing to add himself to the pile to drive the ballcarrier forward or pull defenders off him. Should be solid in a zone system, as he can block and move very well. Will lose the angle on his defender at times, allowing penetration on zone plays. Lacks great bulk to handle NFL tackles one-on-one; may be viewed as a center only by some teams.

Pulling/trapping: Very agile; gets around the center easily to trap and has the quickness to pull around the tackle. Not very consistent hitting his target on the move, however. Misses too many players coming inside-out to disrupt the play. Struggles to sustain if not immediately locking on because he bends at the waist instead of dropping his hips. Needs work on getting low on cut blocks.

Initial Quickness: More than acceptable quickness off the snap; gets his hands into a defender's jersey on run plays and is able to get into pulls and traps easily. Defensive linemen find it difficult to get a great initial push on pass rushes or in obvious run situations.

Downfield: Excellent mobility to reach the second level. Hustles to make second or third blocks, and can be downfield to help his running back off the ground. Lacks great flexibility to adjust to oncoming defenders, and will lunge at linebackers and allow them to elude or shed him at the second level.

Intangibles: Strong, confident, vocal leader for the offensive line. Won the team's Rebel Spirit Award in 2009, given to a senior who exhibited toughness, positive attitude and a strong commitment to his teammates. His durability and versatility will be valued.

With the 218th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft the Chicago Bears select

Simoni Lawrence




03/16/2010 - PRO DAY RESULTS: Vikings coach Brad Childress had his entire staff on hand for pro day at the University of Minnesota on Wednesday. While the field conditions weren't ideal, Minnesota coach Tim Brewster put together a first-rate event. The prospects ran indoors on old AstroTurf. In total, 31 NFL teams were represented and had an opportunity to see eight noteworthy prospects perform. LB Simoni Lawrence (6-0 3/8, 229) ran a 4.57 and 4.55 in the 40, had a 10-7 broad jump, a 4.35 short shuttle and a 6.88 three-cone drill. He stood on his vertical jump time from the combine, and did position drills. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

Overview
Undersized by most teams' standards, Lawrence still intrigues scouts because of his motor and speed. His head coach, former NFL assistant Tim Brewster, calls him the best athlete on the team. His success as a high school running back (2,136 yards, 26 touchdowns in his senior season) and production during his college career helps back Brewster's assertion.

Lawrence started his career at Valley Forge Military Academy, where he was twice numbed Seaboard Conference Player of the Year as a safety (10 interceptions in 2006). He made an immediate impact on the Gophers' defense as a junior, starting only five games but finishing fifth on the team with 66 tackles and second with 10.5 tackles for loss, while forcing two fumbles and scoring two touchdowns (interception return, fumble return). In 2009, he was named honorable-mention All-Big Ten by the league's coaches, starting every game and making 85 tackles, eight for loss playing the strong side despite barely standing 6-feet.

Lawrence's ability to be a factor in coverage (two interceptions, seven pass breakups in 2008-2009) may help teams searching for a versatile zone linebacker and special teams contributor to overlook his short stature, lack of bulk and relative inexperience at the position.

Analysis
Read & React: Active player who attacks the ball but also over-pursues and take false steps. Does not always keep containment as needed, and takes aggressive angle and fails to recover.

Run defense: Chases downfield and even down the line when lined up at the nine-technique. Good strength to flow to the ball when engaged. Dispatches slot receivers coming out to get him on run blocks. Will be engulfed by NFL tackles and blocking tight ends and doesn't punch consistently enough to get off those blocks. Best in a stack formation where he can search out the ball and attack. Willing to take on fullback blocks in the hole.

Pass defense: Speed of a safety on the edge. Lacks height to match up with tight ends down the seam; also easy for receivers to create separation using their length on out routes. Quick in his drop but needs to work on his angles and on moving in space efficiently, keeping his knees bent and smoothly transitioning using his hips. Moves well while reading the quarterback's eyes and is aware of receivers in zone coverage. Inconsistent hands on interceptions, and will struggle to catch balls outside of his frame.

Tackling: Solid tackler in the open field, gets his feet underneath him and uses his low center of gravity to explode into ballcarriers. Fair arm length for his size, usually wrapping up to make the stop even against larger tight ends and running backs. Hustles to the ball downfield and across the field. Takes aggressive angles when coming forward but recognizes when he needs to be last line of defense. Does not have elite change of direction ability to turn the corner as a pass rusher or make a play against elusive runners outside. Could be a hammer who plays without abandon on special teams coverage units.

Pass Rush/Blitz: Has the speed to reach the passer on a delayed blitz. Does not have many moves and must learn to use violent hands to beat tight end blocks and defeat cuts. Some strength to get under blockers' pads and push but doesn't knock them back. Gets knocked off balance or pushed around the pocket easily if met by tackles on the edge.

Intangibles: Confident, talkative player who expects the best of himself and his teammates. Works hard in the weight room and is willing to mix it up on the field or in practice. One of four defensive captains for the Gophers in 2009.

2009 Season
Lawrence finished 4th on the team with 85 total tackles/56 solo. He had 8.0 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks, 1 interception, 4 passes broken up and 1 forced fumble in 2009.

2008 Season
High-impact performer had a huge influence on the Gopher defense in just his first year at the major college level proved to be an extremely versatile player, displaying excellent coverage skills while also excelling in run support and rushing the passer earned playing time in all 13 games with five starts ranked fifth on the team in total tackles with 66, despite coming off the bench in 8 of 13 games was second on the team in tackles for losses with 10.5, including 4.0 sacks tallied one interception, three pass breakups, a fumble recovery and two forced fumbles also scored two touchdowns - one on an interception return and one on a fumble return earned first letter. Game-by Game: came off the bench to record three unassisted tackles, with one tackle for loss, and a forced fumble in the season opener vs. Northern Illinois (8/30) made his first career start at Bowling Green (9/6), totaling seven tackles, including an assist on a sack made four total stops (three solo) against Montana State (9/13) credited with four total tackles, including an 8-yard sack, vs. Florida Atlantic (9/20) also returned his first career interception 50 yards for a touchdown and tallied a pass breakup against the Owls credited with three total tackles, including a tackle for loss, at Ohio State (9/27) assisted on a tackle and notched a pair of pass breakups vs. Indiana (10/4) turned in a huge performance at Illinois (10/11) with nine total tackles (six unassisted), two tackles for losses, including a sack, and a 9-yard fumble return for a touchdown (10/11) totaled five tackles (three solo), including a 6-yard sack, at Purdue (10/25) led the Gophers with nine total tackles (seven solo) and assisted on a tackle for loss vs. Northwestern (11/1) had a big game against Michigan (11/8), collecting eight tackles (seven unassisted), including a pair for losses totaled seven tackles and forced a fumble at Wisconsin (11/15) collected four tackles (three solo) and assisted on a sack against Iowa (11/22) tallied two tackles and one tackle for loss vs. Kansas


Though he is a shorter OLB The Bears are hoping his standout coverage skills and ability in zone coverages will make him a perfect fit to learn from the veteren LBs. He can also step in right away on special teams!

With the 226th pick of the OM 2010 NFL Draft.

The New England Patriots select

Clay Harbor TE/FB Missouri State


Analysis
Release: Lines up wide or inside, with good quickness out of three-point or receiver stance. Gets to top speed fast, and can accelerate past linebackers down the seam. Lacks a second gear in the open field.

Hands: Reliable receiver who hangs onto balls in traffic or after a big hit. Good leaping ability to go over linebackers and safeties when needed. Uses his hands to catch passes when facing the quarterback.

Route running: Gets out into his route quickly, but can be knocked off his path by linebackers. Not really sudden, but will sink his hips at times to make routes crisp. Will be physical to get separation while making his cut. Works to get open if his quarterback is scrambling.

After the catch: Not an especially elusive or agile runner, but uses his length to hold off would-be tacklers in space. Tucks the ball away before heading upfield. Used on screens to get the ball in his hands, as quarterback play was uneven at best.

Blocking: Plays with his hand down on the line often, and shows some pop coming off the ball on run plays. Blocks with aggression and doesn't give up after initial contact. Good length and fair upper-body strength; extends to maintain space with end or linebacker on the edge and can stay engaged for a few seconds. Can get ripped off if he fails to use that length. Gets out-quicked by better ends on occasion, but fights hard on the next play. Combos to seal the edge and then get to linebacker with cut blocks; could try to sustain at the second level.

Intangibles: Durable player who put in the work to become more than just an adequate blocker. Plays with a nasty streak. No major off-field issues.

With the 227th overall Pick and the Houston Texans final selection of the 2010 draft. We select Quarterback Levi Brown from Troy.






After sitting out the 2007 season, Brown was third on the 2008 depth chart and didn't see action until the sixth game of the season. Once on the field, Brown exploded, throwing for 2,030 yards and a 15-3 touchdown-to-interception ratio over the final eight games. His breakout performance earned him Sun Belt Newcomer of the Year honors, foreshadowing his even more impressive success in 2009. Starting every game, Brown completed 63.7 percent of his passes for 4,254 yards and a TD-to-INT ratio of 23-9.


Well-liked by fans, teammates and coaches. Voted a 2009 team captain. Wanted to transfer from Richmond due to their focus on the running game. Originally attempted to transfer to Middle Tennessee State due to the proximity to his hometown, but they weren't interested. Originally sent his film to Troy in an effort to make MTSU jealous.

With the 229th pick of the OM 2010 NFL Draft.

The New England Patriots select

Kavell Conner ILB Clemson


Analysis
Read & React: Quick to read run. Attacks the line of scrimmage to beat offensive linemen to the running back. A step slow recognizing the pass and has only moderate acceleration to close after he's done so.

Run defense: Recognizes run quickly and takes good angles to the ball. Good lateral agility to elude blockers and the vision to flow through the trash on his way to the ball-carrier. Relies on his initial pop to keep away from blockers, as he struggles to disengage once they get their hands on him. Spends too much time fighting with blockers and loses sight of the ball. Inconsistent hustle in downfield pursuit.

Pass defense: Only adequate awareness in coverage. Doesn't get much depth on his drops and relies on reading the quarterback's eyes to get a break on the ball. Struggles changing direction and has only marginal straight-line speed to cover tight ends.

Tackling: Flashes some explosiveness as a hitter. Uncoils on the ballcarrier by bringing his hips through the tackle, but will occasionally leave his feet looking for the knockout blow and can glance off powerful runners. Will have to do a better job of wrapping up in the NFL.

Pass Rush/Blitz: Times his blitz, showing good acceleration to close on the quarterback. Lacks the agility in close quarters to avoid blockers and doesn't use his hands well enough to gain freedom from offensive linemen who pick him up. Can overpower the tight end or back with a bull rush, but shows little overall technique.

Intangibles: Tough. Won the 2008 Dedication Award for performance in the weight room. Lifted 560 pounds in the squat. Has played in 53 games and never missed a game.

With the 231st pick of the OM 2010 NFL Draft.

The New England Patriots select

Brent Bowden P Virginia Tech


Overview
Frank Beamer's Hokies are nationally recognized for their special teams prowess, which is one of the reasons Virginia Tech has proven to be an NFL hotbed for specialist prospects.

Lanky, experienced and possessing a strong, accurate leg, Bowden emerged in 2009 as one of the country's finest punters, leading the ACC with 43.9 yards per punt while also showing the touch to place the ball inside the 20-yard line.

Bowden has always shown a strong leg, but too often out-kicked his coverage in his early years. Perhaps most impressive to scouts was Bowden's improvement in hang-time and directional punting. His inconsistent kicks in 2008 often put the coverage units in precarious positions, leading to three punt returns for scores (zero in 2009).

Analysis
Punters: Two-and-a-half step, right-footed punter. Good length and lateral agility to handle poorly-snapped balls. Catches the ball cleanly and has an efficient drop. Gains good height on his kicks quickly and has good leg extension. Improved hang time and directional skills as a senior. Placed 72 punts inside the opponents' 20-yard line over the past three years -- compared to 28 going for touchbacks. Could improve his angles in tracking down returners. Isn't as athletic as his frame would indicate and has struggled to track down returners when he has the opportunity (one career tackle). Reliable holder for PATs and field goals.

iDenver and the Ravens select:

Seyi Ajirotutu, Fresno State
Height: 6-3. Weight: 204.
Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
Combine 40 Time: 4.53.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.58.
Vertical: . Broad: .
Projected Round (2010): 5-6

Seyi Ajirotutu is a big receiver threat to come in and help that ravens offense and learn behind Boldin and Mason. He has a huge frame at 6-3 and is a receiver project.
