WITH THE 48TH PICK IN THE 2010 NFL DRAFT, THE CAROLINA PANTHERS SELECT:

Brandon LaFell WR




Senior: LSU

Height 6′3″ , 209 lbs.

LaFell initially declared for the 2009 NFL Draft, but pulled out to return for his senior season at LSU. He entered the 09 season with the potential to be the best receiver the college game had to offer, but his senior year stats would take a hit. LSUís offense struggled all season behind an inexperienced quarterback. LaFell was unable to eclipse his junior year production although he had his best season in terms of touchdowns (11). Had he entered the draft last year, he most likely would have been a first rounder. A year later, his stay atop the wide-receiver board remains in question after a season of inconsistent quarterback play and some uncharacteristic drops. He does have 4 years experience in a highly regarded college conference.


Sophomore Season 2007: 50 catches, 656 receiving yards, 4 touchdowns.

Junior Season 2008: 63 catches, 929 receiving yards, 8 touchdowns.

Senior Season 2009: 57 catches, 792 receiving yards, 11 touchdowns.

Career Stats at LSU:175 receptions, 2,157 receiving yards and 25 TDs.
LaFell is tough. Heís not afraid to play in between the hashes and will fight for the ball. Has physical style of play and is not often out-positioned by defenders. Heís a better than average blocker who prides himself on all aspects of the position. Plays physical and is not often jammed at the line. Can break tackles and can produce YAC after initial contact. November 18th 2006 was the last time that LaFell was held without a catch.
At times lacks concentration. Runs before he has secured the ball leading to a number of dropped balls. Has small hands.
LaFell made a lasting impression in his final college performance. He pulled down 5 catches for 87 yards and a touchdown in LSUís match-up vs. Penn State in the Capital One Bowl. He opted out of the Senior Bowl.
LaFell has done little to improve his stock since the Captial One Bowl. His opting out of the Senior Bowl was a bad decision. He further damaged his draft prognosis by posting sub-par numbers at the combine. He projects as a second rounder. The Brotherhood feels that there may be better options available.

NFL Comparison: Dwayne Bowe

Carolina's passing game was one of the worst in the NFL, giving Moore another target and making Smith more effective, this is how I see Carolina going.

Pick made at 8:48 pm MST 3-10-2010.

With the 49th pick of the OM 2010 NFL Draft.

The New England Patriots select

Damian Williams WR USC


Release: Good initial quickness off the snap. Accelerates smoothly to eat up the cushion and has enough deep speed that corners have to respect his ability to go over the top. Good lateral agility and strong hands to defeat press coverage.

Hands: Soft, reliable hands. Extends and plucks the ball out of the air. Good body control. Can reach back and catch the pass behind him. Can track the ball over either shoulder. Competes for the jump ball, but isn't strong enough to effectively box out and beat the corner as consistently as scouts would like for a receiver of his listed size.
Route running: Among his better areas. Good, not great straight-line speed is made better due to his sudden acceleration. Sinks his hips and can plant and explode to change directions quickly. Very good slant, dig and post runner due to this burst. Potential to be a very good double-move route-runner. Wasn't asked to do this often enough at USC.

After the catch: Lacks the elite lateral agility to shake in tight quarters, but can make defenders miss with a quick-bounce-and-go. Accelerates quickly to pull away and gain yardage in chunks. Willing to go across the middle and is especially effective on slants and posts. Good vision. Good balance and strength to run through arm-tackles. Flashes an effective stiff-arm and spin to break free. Standout punt returner. Averaged 14.2 yards per return in 2009, returning two for scores (long of 66 yards).

Blocking: Provides a solid initial pop to the defender and works to sustain. Keeps his feet moving and looks to help out teammates downfield.

Intangibles: Originally signed with the University of Arkansas. Along with former Arkansas and USC teammate Mitch Mustain, founded a campus Bible study group "Generate USC." Underwent surgery on both shoulders after tearing a ligament in the spring of 2007. Missed half of the UCLA game (2008) due to a sprained shoulder.

Pick made at 11-00AM ET, Carmelo at 49ers are OTC.

With the 50th Pick in the 2010 NFL Draft the 49ers Select Devin McCourty CB Rutgers


McCourty is a great all around corner. He is good at both zone and man coverage and is not afraid to get physical with receivers. He is also perhaps the best tackling corner in this draft class. He is not afraid to help in run support. Many people think Devin Mccourty can slip into the late first round so Mike Singletary will love getting a tough corner like this on his defense with the 50th pick in the draft.

He also excelled on every special team. He returned kickoffs, blocked 7 punts, and was also a great gunner on punt team.

As a Senior he was an All-Big East performer who recorded 80 tackles and 10 pass breakups while also blocking three kicks and scoring on a 98-yard kickoff return, McCourty can also talk about his 3.309 grade-point average and the fact that he was a semifinalist for the academics-based Draddy Trophy last year.

"Aside from being a very good corner, he might be the best special-teams player in the whole draft from a return perspective, gunner, jammer, makes tackles," NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said. "You get quite a package if you draft Devin.Ē

With the 51st overall selection in the 2010 NFL Draft.....

The Houston Texans select CB Kareem Jackson from Alabama.




THE perfect corner the Texans need. Kareem is rising up the boards lately, glad this guy fell to 51. Very physical corner, good instincts, covers real well and also supports the run defense. Isn't afraid to tackle which is rare in CB's these days.



PICK MADE AT 7:40 pm Mountain Time.

With their second round pick (#52 overall), the Pittsburgh Steelers select:

Demaryius Thomas, WR, Georgia Tech



Height: 6' 3"
Weight: 229 pounds
Career stats: 120 catches, 2339 yards, 14 touchdowns

Overview:
Thomas has rare measurables for the wide receiver position and will be a very attractive gamble for some team after the first round. He shows excellent vertical speed, especially for someone his size, and can be intimidating to a cornerback when isolated on the perimeter. He has the size of a tight end with the speed, agility and ball skills of a wide receiver. He needs a lot of work on his route running skills as he tends to round off his breaks and will telegraph his routes with too much upper body movement. He can make acrobatic type catches but will drop some very catchable passes due to lapses in concentration. He is not a very physical blocker on the edge in spite of his massive size advantage. In a recent workout, Thomas broke his foot and will be unable to participate in combine drills.

Strengths:
Possesses elite size and physicality for the receiver position. Has good top-end speed. Has been productive in a system not overly friendly to receivers. Really good catching the ball in a crowd. Will rise up above defenders and shield players with his large frame. Exhibits natural hands and consistently catches the ball away from his body.

Weaknesses:
Thomas runs sloppy routes and is raw with his route-running in general. Needs to be more consistent with his concentration on the ball. Blocking must improve at the next level, which is tough to swallow given his size. Can make strides in this area due to natural measurables. In a recent workout, Thomas broke his foot and will be unable to participate in combine drills.

Pro Comparisons: Brandon Marshall, Terrell Owens



Pick made at:
11:30 a.m. Abu Dhabi time
2:21 a.m. Eastern
1:21 a.m. Central
12:21 a.m. Mountain
11:21 p.m. Pacific

I really wanted Damian Williams or Demaryius Thomas as my possesion receiver for Josh Freeman but they just went off the board. I guess I will get my speed guy here...


With the 53rd pick, the Bucs select WR Mardy Gilyard Cincinnati



The Bucs have very little speed on offense and very little talent at receiever other than Winslow and Stroughter. Gilyard can stretch the field and get open with his superior quickness.

With the 54th pick, Cincinnati Bengals select:

Morgan Burnett, FS, Georgia Tech
6'1 210



In 2008, the 6-1 free safety led the Yellow Jackets with 93 tackles, seven interceptions, eight pass breakups and 15 passes defended -- not bad at all for a sophomore. He was recognized by many media outlets for his impressive season. Burnett plays the rover position at Georgia Tech, but he has the versatility to play either safety spot in the NFL. In most systems he would be a strong safety, but heading into the 2009 season he was considered second only to Eric Berry among safeties according to many pundits.

I like this kid alot. He's got mad atheletic ability, tackles well and he's a real ball hawk. Not the greatest straight line speed at 4.48 (although that time was not at the combine, he tweaked a hammy and didn't run) but anytime you have a Safety who leads your team in tackles, that's the kind of Safety I would not mind having on my team. It shows he's not only willing to make tackles and help in run support, but he's damn good at it also. He reminds me alot of Troy Polamalu.

The Bengals are happy to have Morgan Burnett join 1st round selection Joe Haden in the backfield and look for many years of dominance out of this duo.

With the 55th pick the Philadelphia Eagles select:

Nate Allen, FS, South Florida, 6'0", 207



Strengths:
Allen has a really nice blend of size and athleticism for a safety. Possesses the toughness and willingness necessary to help out in run support. Has been a very productive player at the college level. Displays really impressive instincts when playing in man or zone coverage.

Weaknesses
Despite reactions and instincts, must take better pursuit angles. Allen is capable in coverage but could afford to improve his overall ball skills to make more game-changing plays. Will need to become a more physical and reliable tackler in the open field.

The Arizona Cardinals are proud to select a player with unrivaled raw aggression and perhaps the best "in-traffic" line backer in this years draft in Daryl Washington, TCU. When the pro game slows down for his speed, athleticism and sheer rage, he'll be a regular in Honolulu... if that's where they're holding the pro-bowl.

With their second 2nd-round selection (#59 overall), the Pittsburgh Steelers select:

Jonathan Dwyer, RB, Georgia Tech



Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 235
Career Stats: 3226 rushing yards, 6.2 YPA, 36 touchdowns in three seasons

Overview:

Dwyer is a big, powerful ball carrier that has had a lot of production at Georgia Tech but some of the numbers could be inflated due to the style of offense the Yellow Jackets run. The triple option tends to put ball carriers in wide open run lanes that wonít always be available to the pro style attack. He is a one-cut ball carrier that will stick his foot in the ground and hit the seam at full speed. He shows good balance on contact, runs through his share of arm tackles and shows surprising speed for his size. He is the kind of back that most teams are looking for as a featured ball carrier but will need some work on the passing game as far as blocking or running routes out of the backfield.

Strengths:
Dwyer has an outstanding blend of bulk, size and speed for the position. Was highly-productive in college. Shows a competitive fire and consistently battles for extra yards. Flashes good blocking ability. Has displayed some downfield receiving skills. Very durable performer capable of carrying the load at the next level.

Weaknesses:
Has outstanding size but can struggle to keep his weight down at times. Played in an option system not often seen in todayís college game resulting in some inflated stats. Lacks the elusiveness to turn nothing into something and make multiple defenders miss.

Pro Comparisons: Jonathan Stewart

With the 64th (65th) pick in the 2010 NFL Draft the St. Louis Rams select....



Dan LeFevour, QB, Central Michigan


My Take
Dan LeFevour, to me, is the kind of QB the Rams need. Mentally and physically tough with excellent short to intermediate accuracy. He's got a high football IQ and brings more athleticism than most of his peers to the table as well. He'll have some growing pains as he learns to play in a traditional NFL offense, but he's got all the tools you look for. He isn't the definitive answer at QB but then I don't think such a QB exists in this class, and this selection still leaves the door open for a 1st round QB in 2011 if one that the team likes more than LeFevour is available.

Quote:
Originally Posted by NFL.com Combine Report
Overview
LeFevour is a four-year starter at a mid level college football program that flashes a lot of what teams are looking for but will need to develop several parts of his game if he wants to play at the next level. He does not take many snaps from under center and will need to work on dropping to the pocket and reading the coverage as he sets up. He has a decent arm but the ball will flutter, at times, when trying to thread the needle on some downfield throws. When he has time and room to step into his throws he can get some zip on the short to intermediate outs.

Strengths
LeFevour is high-character player and fierce competitor. Was extremely productive at the non-BCS level. Plays with very impressive intelligence and is a good decision maker. Possesses the release quickness you look for at the next level. Has the arm strength necessary to make most NFL throws. Exhibits very good accuracy in the short passing game.

Weaknesses
Spent most of his time in the spread and must gain experience taking the snap from under center. Needs improvement and more consistency throwing the deep ball. Must avoid locking onto receivers and become better at looking defenders off. Does not have the speed to be a threat to pickup yardage with his legs.

With the 67th pick of the OM 2010 NFL Draft.

The New England Patriots select

Koa Misi OLB Utah


Overview
Misi (pronounced mee-see) proved ready for big-time football after winning all-conference honors in his only season at Santa Rosa Junior College. Whether lining up as a pass-rushing linebacker or with his hand on the ground -- even playing tackle when needed -- he terrorized opposing quarterbacks for the Utes.

The son of a former player for Hawaii, Misi has been among the team leaders in tackles the past three seasons, increasing his output from 65 to 68 to 71. He also improved his tackles for loss (8, 8.5, 9.5) and sacks (2.5, 3, 5) and forced three fumbles in both 2008 and '09. He was named second-team All-Mountain West as a junior and first-team all-conference this fall.

Maybe the Utes' most gifted athlete, Misi is quick enough to chase down backs and strong enough hold his ground on the edge, making him an ideal 3-4 outside linebacker. Add in his toughness and instincts, he's a potential top 100 pick for any team using any base scheme.

Analysis
Read & React: Very good football instincts -- sniffs out screens, misdirection and cut blocks. Reads routes and knows where the hot read is in coverage.

Run defense: Explosive coming off the edge if untouched, flexible enough to chase down backs. Lacks the bulk to play end on early downs at the next level, but is strong enough as a linebacker on the edge to be an effective run stopper. Smart on containment and takes away the cutback lane. Punches linemen coming out to block, can disengage to make a play. Gets through trash to find the ball. Excellent chase and hustle down the line or downfield.

Pass defense: Very fluid in his drops, turns hips and gets deep quickly. Will struggle getting off lineman blocks, but seems to find creases to get to the ball in traffic. Good ball awareness whether blitzing or dropped into zone coverage. Gets his hands up when unable to reach the quarterback. Beats cut blocks with his hands and agile enough to recover. Strong enough to handle tight ends on the edge but needs to improve his hand usage on the line. Hustles back to get to open receivers in zones.

Tackling: Excellent tackler, strong upper body and brings his hips to explode into ballcarriers. Breaks down in space and has the agility to rein in elusive players. Tracks down quicker players from behind in space with pure hustle. Will be a force on special teams, playing inside on coverage units.

Pass Rush/Blitz: Played mostly defensive end for the Utes, quick off the edge and plays through the whistle. When standing up, he has nice closing speed to the QB and some shiftiness to defeat running backs inside or turn the corner on lineman outside. Also uses his hands to keep lineman off balance and get around their outside shoulder. Will need counter moves and learn how to blow up blocks in the backfield.

Intangibles: Team captain. High character player praised by his coaches for work ethic. Suffered back injury in preseason practice, worked hard to miss only the first game of 2009 season.

Selection made at 6-32 ET, Kansas City and JCM are now OTC.

With the 68th selection in the OM Mock Draft the KC Chiefs select:

Jamar Chaney, ILB, Miss. State


Chaney is coming off his most productive year as a collegiate player after missing most of the 2008 season with an injury in the opener. Chaney has adequate size, strength and athleticism for the position. Chaney has improved his run defense but is best in space as a coverage defender. He is inconsistent to take on and shed blockers and may be best covered up at the next level. Chaney plays with an excellent motor and is quick to pursue with solid instincts. He runs well and shows excellent range which should make him great in combination man schemes as well as special teamís at the nest level. Chaney is a very good football player that is likely to be productive as a rookie.

With his solid combine, versatility, and healthy 09 campaign, Chaney is one of the fastest risers on NFL draft boards. ILB is a desperate need for KC and they needed someone who could come in and make an impact immediately. Chaney should start immediately.

With the 69th selection of the 2010 Orange Mane Mock Draft the Dallas Cowboys select:

AKWASI OWUSU-ANSAH, DB, INDIANA (PA.)


Photobucket



Height: 6'1/4"
Weight: 207
40 Time: 4.30

Strengths: Owusu-Ansah has tremendous size for a corner and long arms which allow him to play even taller than his listed height. Has impressive ball skills, enhanced by his height/long arms, and can high point the football to come down with a tough interception. A strong defensive back who helps out in run support and wraps up well. Very athletic prospect with upside, Production player who received multiple accolades at the Division II level. Can contribute as a return specialist.

Weaknesses: Played against more inferior competition (Division II) than other prospects and was allowed to get by on his physical ability. Owusu-Ansah can be undisciplined at times with his techniques -- something he will have a much harder time getting away with at the next level. Dealt with shoulder injury in college.

My Take: Dallas needs to get more athletic and needs more big plays from it's safeties. He is being drafted to play safety where many project would be his best postion. Fortunately, the safety play is adequate so Owusu-Ansah will be afforded time to develop and adjust to the step-up in competition. In the interim, he will be the primary kick and punt returner and should be a big-time special teams player.

With the 70th pick thePhiladelphia Eagles select:

Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford, 6'0", 231



Gerhart is a big, powerful ball carrier that has just enough speed to be a threat. He runs with a good pad level and consistently breaks through first contact and gets a lot of his yards after initial contact. He seems to get stronger as the game wears on and defenses visibly grow weary of trying to take him on in the latter parts of the game. He knows how to follow his blockers and is patient as he waits for the hole to open up. He is an effective receiver out of the backfield and, while he is not apt to be used as a downfield threat, he can move the chains in the short to intermediate passing game.

Strengths:
Gerhart has impressive size and strength for the running back position to be productive in between the tackles. He has great balance on contact and consistently bounces off would-be tacklers. Finishes his runs and fights for extra yardage. Always plays with a ton of effort. Was extremely productive in college. Plays with a high level of intelligence.

Weaknesses:
Gerhart does not possess the speed scouts like to see for the next level. Does not effectively attack the perimeter on outside runs or kick it into another gear to hit home runs up the middle. Attempts to get downhill in a hurry, but burst through the hole is just adequate.
