Hey that's cool. Disregard the PM I sent ya.


Ok, now for some info on Gibson.


Thaddeus Gibson - DE/OLB - Ohio State
6'2 240

Excellent size/athleticism combination. A very productive pass-rusher at defensive end on one of the top defenses in the nation. Has the athleticism to move to outside linebacker.

I did have a late 2nd round grade on Gibson because of his pass rushing skills. He was not used much as a LB and thus didn't really play in coverage so we shall see if he can learn to do that. He has the athleticism to do it. He's physical and smart. If he can do a decent job in coverage, this guy will be an absolute steal in the late 3rd round. He could round into a very solid run stopping and coverage LB but his specialty no doubt will be in a blitz package. He can flat out get to the QB.

With the first pick in the fourth round, the KC Chiefs select:

Arthur Jones, DT, Syracuse

Measurements: 6′3" 300 pounds

40 time: 4.98

2009 Syracuse Stats: 18 tackles (12 solo), 1 sack, 2 fumble recoveries

Jones has the size and strength to play tackle in either a 3-4 or a 4-3. Syracuse used a three-man front in 2009 and Jones held the nose. While it limited some of Jones' playmaking ability, he was still a factor, particularly against the run.

Jones is flying far below the radar, especially after Gerald McCoy and Brian Price declared and Dan Williams emerged. But also causing the low profile are some serious injury concerns. He tore a pectoral muscle in the 2009 offseason and saw his senior year shortened by a torn left lateral meniscus.

Jones is an attractive prospect because his ability to play the 3-4 or 4-3. This would allow teams the luxury of presenting different looks on defense.

Jones' injuries may have knocked him out of the first 50 picks of the draft, but he's a very good player. Despite his injuries, Big East head coaches named him a first-team all-conference player in 2009.

Short Bio:You'll have to excuse Arthur's senior year stats. They are not indicative of who he is as a player. Jones' season was sandwiched by injuries, a torn pec muscle in January and season-ending knee injury in November. In his sophomore season, Jones notched 51 tackles (32 solo) and a sack. His 17.5 TFL was the third-best output in Syracuse history and his 1.59 TFL per game average ranked ninth nationally. 2He was named a 2007 All-Big East Second Team selection. As a junior, Jones has his best overall season (60 tackles, 33 solo and 3 sacks) and was named to the All-Big East First Team. He was named Big East Defensive Player of the Week for a career-high 15 tackles and 1.5 sacks in Syracuse's win over Notre Dame.

With 38.5 career tackles for loss, Arthur ranks No. 1 in SU history for interior defensive lineman and third overall all-time. His 145 career tackles are good for T-10th on the SU record list for tackles by a down lineman.

Strengths: Art is agile for a big man, speedier than you think and always finishes plays. His long arms and powerful lower body give him a huge advantage in a one-on-one match-up. Considering the fact that he played amongst some of the worst defenses in SU history, it's impressive he could put up those kinds of numbers. Plus, he's just a good guy. Came back to SU for his senior year when he could have left in part so that he could mentor his younger brother, Chandler. And he can down lobsters like nobody's business.

Weaknesses: He's officially earned the "injury-prone" label, whether deserved or not. The torn pec muscle is healed and shouldn't be an issue but the torn lateral meniscus in the knee is a huge warning sign for teams trying to determine if Art is worthy of first-round money. Though he can create tackles for losses, he's not a big sack specialist. He may have have to prove himself all over as an outside DE instead of an interior lineman given that his speed calls for it.

Prognosis: If Art can stay healthy, he's among the top lineman in the draft and first-round ready. If the knee injuries flare up or Jones isn't able to prove that he's recovered fully, he could drop and he could drop quickly.

With the 101st pick of the OM 2010 NFL Draft.

The New England Patriots select

Joe McKnight RB USC


Analysis
Inside: Better inside runner than he's given credit for due to the fact that he likes to hit the hole running full speed. Very good acceleration to and through the line of scrimmage. Shows some vision to bounce it outside when the hole isn't there, showing a good jump-cut-and-go to accelerate once he sees a lane. Runs too high and doesn't have the leg drive to run through tackles. Too often dragged down by defenders still fighting off blocks. Lacks the toughness to be a consistent interior running threat. Struggled with fumbles early in his career. Wraps the ball securely when in tight quarters, but too often swings the ball outside of his frame in the open field.

Outside: His best trait. Has the pure speed to beat linebackers to the edge and can take it the distance when he's allowed to turn the corner and head upfield. Good vision for the cutback. Has some real shake 'n bake to him and can make even reliable open-field tacklers look foolish. Has good, not great, balance and is too often tripped up by shoe-string tackles.

Breaking tackles: An area of relative concern. Simply doesn't run tough enough at this time. Runs upright and can be knocked back by heavy-hitters. Lacks the leg drive to run through defenders to generate the tough yards. Has done a better job of keeping his legs driving as he has gained experience, but lacks the sand in his pants to drive through defenders to get the tough yards on his second and third efforts. Too often unable to keep his feet when knocked off balance. Swings his arms wildly to gain control, which puts the ball in position to be knocked out.

Blocking: Tougher in this area than you'd expect for his slight frame and finesse running style. Willing to step up and deliver an initial pop to the bigger defender, but lacks the strength and toughness to sustain for long. Good effort and agility for the cut-block, though defenders often see it coming.

Receiving: Among his better traits, enough so that some teams may consider moving McKnight to receiver. Used on a variety of routes in this offense; typically wheels, screens, dump-offs in the flat, etc. Soft hands and appears natural catching the ball. Secures it quickly. Good hand-eye coordination and body control to bring in the hot, inaccurate pass.

Intangibles: Elected to leave school early amid reports that he was allowed to drive an SUV given to his girlfriend by a local California businessman. USC, already under investigation for reports of improper benefits being given to Reggie Bush and former basketball star O.J. Mayo, decided to suspend McKnight for the 2009 Emerald Bowl against Boston College. Struggled through nagging minor injuries in 2008 (sprained toe, chipped finger, hyperextended elbow) and cited his remaining healthy in 2009 as a reason for leaving after his junior season.

Pick made at 2-12PM ET, JCM and Kansas City are OTC again.[/QUOTE]

Correction, the Lions take Darrell Stuckey, safety from Kansas. The Detroit GM makes mental note that he should double check his list for players who decided to go back for the senior year.

Hidalgo
Default With Pick 104 Seattle takes....

Anthony Dixon, RB
Height: 6-1 | Weight: 233 | College: Mississippi State




Overview
Seen as a major recruiting coup, Dixon turned down offers to LSU, Florida, Alabama and others to stay in Mississippi. Rushing for 2,683 yards and 32 touchdowns as a senior will get a school's attention.

Dixon enjoyed a record-breaking career in Starksville despite poor quarterback and mediocre offensive line play - and matching up against tough SEC opponents. He contributed 668 rushing yards and nine scores as a true freshman, then racked up 1,066 more yards and 14 touchdowns as the team's workhorse (266 carries, 3.7-yard average) in 2007. Although his total yardage (869) and touchdowns (nine) went down in 2008, his average per carry increased to 4.4 because he only had 197 on the year.

Though skeptics wondered if he was ready to emerge as a team leader after being arrested for a DUI in July, Dixon let his play do his talking, rushing for a school-record 1,391 yards. His career totals of 3,994 rushing yards and 42 rushing touchdowns are also school records.

Even though Dixon looks like a pure power back, he had 52 catches for 317 yards and four scores over his career, proving his versatility. He doesn't have the production or hype of a C.J. Spiller or Toby Gerhart, but is nonetheless viewed as a potential bell-cow back.

Analysis
Inside: Good size for an inside runner. Effective on quick traps and draws inside, and makes a strong cut into the hole. Shows some vision to pick his way through trash to find creases. Keeps leg churning after contact past the line of scrimmage, falling forward for additional yardage. Does not evade penetrating defenders whether running between the tackles or to the outside. Will lose the ball in traffic when getting skinny or pushing to get extra yardage.

Outside: Has improved his patience on zone and stretch plays, and can shift down then speed up to get through the hole. Runs with good lean and balance, even after leaping a corner trying to cut tackle. Lacks great elusiveness but his shifty hips give him the ability to make quick cuts in space. Not quick enough to bounce plays outside if defenders stack up the line around the tackle. Will not separate from defenders with a third gear once through traffic. Doesn't move the ball to his outside hand.

Breaking tackles: Very tough to bring down once he gets moving. Lowers his pads and keeps his legs moving to run over linebackers or defensive backs to get the first down. Arm tackles near the line of scrimmage don't slow him down. Will stiff-arm or push aside would-be tacklers in traffic. Can be chopped down easily if reached at or just behind the line.

Blocking: Uses his size to stand his ground against oncoming blitzers, although he doesn't sustain and will throw a lazy shoulder at times instead of moving his feet. Extends his long arms to take edge rushers around the pocket. Agile enough to cut block on the edge when needed. Stands around after play-action fake, instead of helping linemen up front.

Receiving: Fair hands as a receiver and can catch outside his body. Used as a first option and check-down over the middle, as well as on swing passes. Bowls over and runs through tackles of smaller defenders, but doesn't have great speed to separate. Shows surprisingly quick feet coming out of routes, but he could be more consistent cutting hard.

Intangibles: Durable back who hasn't missed any games over the past three seasons. Played through broken finger in 2006, undergoing surgery on a Wednesday and playing Saturday. Arrested in July 2009 for suspicion of driving under the influence, careless driving and not having proof of insurance.

Here's a little breakdown on Asante:

Asante displays improved instincts from a year ago. He does a nice job reading the action in front of him and quickly closing on the ball. Showcases a good initial first step when asked to and takes good angles toward the ball. Generating good power on contact, he's consistently able to wrap up and bring his man to the ground. Displays good balance in his drop. Looks comfortable when asked to keep his feet under him and get out of his breaks. A ball-hawk in the secondary, Asante combines an intriguing blend of power, closing speed and instincts against the run and pass game.

He isn't the most explosive straight-line athlete and doesn't display much of a second gear. He looks like a 4.55 guy on tape, but he's able to make up for it because he consistently gets good jumps on the football and can quickly redirect out of his breaks. He looks like a guy who will be able to play in an NFL secondary as a strong safety. He should be able to nail down a starting role at some point in his career.

Eric Decker, WR
Height: 6-3 | Weight: 217 | College: Minnesota


Release: Very good quickness off the line even with his height and strong build. Gets to top speed fast but doesn't have a breakaway gear. Beats the jam using his hands and a sidestep. Recognizes holes in the defense, and looks for the ball immediately.
Hands: Excellent hands, extending them outside his body. Looks the ball in and doesn't let go under pressure. Good concentration in traffic; has the size and vertical to win jump balls. Brings in poorly thrown passes anywhere in his vicinity. Tracks the ball over both shoulders.
Route running: Lines up in the slot and on the sideline; runs all of the routes on the tree. Creates separation with his hands and speed down the sideline, providing nice target. Aware of the first down marker. Understands the offense very well. Works to get free if quarterback is in trouble. Inconsistent planting and driving on out routes.
After the catch: Has enough elusiveness and agility to be used on slip screens at 6-3, 215 pounds. Can stop quickly to let oncoming defenders fly by. Tightropes the sideline on deep patterns. Runs through arm tackles, but doesn't give out hits to smaller defensive backs to get additional yardage.
Blocking: Improved his blocking during his senior year, using his size to negate smaller cornerbacks on the edge. Instead of trying to cut his man or allowing corners to disengage early, as he did in previous seasons, Decker sought out contact and looked willing to sustain so running backs have room to roam when bouncing outside.
Intangibles: Natural athlete with good work habits. Played through high ankle sprain as much as possible last fall, and worked hard to return from knee surgery for bowl game following his junior season. Respected in the locker room. NFL Comparison: Jordy Nelson, Packers

With the 108th pick...the Jacksonville Jaguars select: Donovan Warren, Cornerback, Univ. of Michigan.

6-0/185



Strengths:
Very good height, length, and bulk
Excellent speed and athleticism
Fluid and shows ability to mirror
Impressive footwork
Terrific in run support
Physical - will get off or take on a block
Has nice anticipation underneath
Great closing burst
Underrated ball skills; turns, locates, soft hands
Comfortable on an island
Rarely thrown at
Three-year starter
Highly confident and competitive
Short memory
Ability to play safety
Great upside
Summary: The thing I love most about Warren is his confidence and intangibles. I really believe he will be a much better pro than college player because an NFL scheme and coaching staff will get the most out of him. He's really flying under the radar and some team is going to get a steal in the second or third round. Scouts hate that he gives up big plays, but he can definitely improve on this in the NFL and I think there is too much unwarranted criticism. I'll have him as a top 40-50 talent on my final Big Board.

Player Comparison: Dunta Robinson. Robinson is an athletic corner who excels in mirroring receivers and making plays on the ball.
Pick made at 3:25 pm mtn time.

With the 114th pick in the OM Draft, your Denver Broncos select:

Austen Lane, OLB, Murray State, 66, 276



Lane arrived on the Murray State campus at 220 pounds. He added nearly 50 pounds over four years while maintaining the burst off the edge to rank as one of the most dominant pass-rushers in all of college football.
Starting a combined 19 games and registering 82 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and six sacks over his first two seasons with the program, Lane had established himself as one to watch. No one could have projected his breakout junior season in 2008.
Despite only starting 10 of the 12 games in which he played, Lane exploded for 68 tackles, 22 tackles for loss and 12 sacks earning first-team all-Ohio Valley Conference honors. A year later, despite constant double-teams, Lane proved his junior campaign was far from a fluke, registering 64 tackles, 19.5 tackles for loss and 11 sacks. The OVC Defensive Player of the Year and finalist for the Buck Buchanan Award, Lane was invited to the Senior Bowl, proving to be a surprisingly effective pass rusher throughout the week of practice. His time in Mobile was highlighted by a fumble recovery and return for a touchdown that helped the North pull off the 31-13 victory.
Even with the additional 50 pounds he added over his career, Lane isn't yet strong enough to hold up against an NFL running game. He is surprisingly refined as a pass rusher and has a blend of burst and size 3-4 and 4-3 defenses can work with. A team willing to invest a mid-round pick in Lane could see the move pay big dividends down the road. (CBS Sports)

With the 18th pick in the 4th round (116 overall) of the OM Mock Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers select:

Alex Carrington, DE, Arkansas State



whoops... that's Alexis Carrington (goddamned google image search!)... here's Alex (check out those guns!:


Evaluation from Pro Football Weekly:

Height: 6' 5"
Weight: 285
40 yard dash: 4.93
Arms: 33 1/4
Hand: 10 1/2

Notes
Has a son. Redshirted in 2005. Played in eight games in '06, starting six, and recording 14 tackles, two for loss and one sack with one forced fumble before being shelved by spondylolysis (L3 fracture in the lower back). Returned to start all 12 games in '07, tallying 38-5-1 with a pass batted down. Started all 12 contests in '08, registering 53-19-10.5 with two passes batted down, one interception, one forced fumble and a blocked kick. Started all 12 games at left end in '09 and collected 41-14.5-9 with one forced fumble and one blocked kick. Did not perform jumps or shuttles at the Combine because of a left ankle injury

Positives
Lives in the weight room and it shows -- looks every bit the part with wide shoulders and a ripped-up physique for a 285-pounder. Has outstanding size with an athletic, well-proportioned build and good overall length. Flashes legit power to push the pocket and raw, brute strength to anchor and leverage the edge and hold the point.

Negatives
Instincts and eyes are just average -- does not diagnose quickly and feels his way through the game too much. Stays blocked too long and falls into production. Does not play physical, gingerly approaches a pile and is too comfortable being late to arrive. Questionable toughness. Weight-room strength does not translate to the field. Motor runs hot and cold. Could be more disciplined keeping contain. Sack production is inflated from facing weak opposition.

Summary
Height-weight-speed prospect who stood out in one-on-one drills at the Senior Bowl against an average crop of offensive lineman and will tease scouts with his athletic physique. Will be overdrafted a a developmental five-technique, and his lack of toughness and positional instincts could hinder his development.



Pick made at:

11:00 p.m. Abu Dhabi time
3:00 p.m. Eastern
2:00 p.m. Central
1:00 p.m. Mountain
12:00 p.m. Pacific
11:00 a.m. Alaskan

The Falcons select, Dorin Dickerson, TE Pitt.

Dorin had the best time of all tight ends in the 40 yard dash (4.40), in the 225 pound bench press (24 reps), 1st by far in the vertical jump (43"), second in the broad jump (10'5"), and 3rd in the 3-Cone Drill (9.6 seconds) and the 20-Yard Shuttle (30 seconds). This dude will create match up problems wherever he lines up. A year or two with Gonzo with help as well.



Pick made at 0841 EST.

With the 119th pick of the OM 2010 NFL Draft.

The New England Patriots select

Kyle Calloway OT Iowa


Analysis
Pass blocking: Mirrors and stays low against power defensive ends from his right tackle spot. Sets up quickly in pass protection and uses a good angle on his kick slide, rarely giving up the edge. Absorbs big punches and regularly anchors. Extends his arms to keep rushers at bay but could have a stronger punch to knock them off balance. Works to stay with his man on secondary rushes but will reach more than move his feet. Adjusts to twists but doesn't always recognize or get a hand on inside blitzers. Will get tall and choppy in his footwork against quicker ends.

Run blocking: Attacks edge rushers on run plays, firing his hands into their jersey. Able to move in any direction. Solid combo blocker negates MIKE linebacker or other defenders coming inside-out. Latches onto the numbers and doesn't let go. Keeps a wide base on the edge and keep his hands and feet active to sustain. Likes to keep his man on the ground through the whistle.

Pulling/trapping: Does not pull or trap much in Iowa's zone blocking scheme but has good footwork for his size. Usually under control when on the move. Could trap if moved into the strong-side guard spot but should stay between the tackles.

Initial Quickness: Fires off the ball to run block, often locking down the defensive end on his side. Strong at punching the defensive tackle and quickly getting to linebacker in combo blocks. Quick off the snap into his kick slide for his size.

Downfield: Easily gets to linebackers, finding their numbers with his hands and keeping his feet moving to take them out of the play. Shows good flexibility to adjust in space. Uses angles to keep defenders from running around him to the ball. Typically stays on one block downfield but is agile enough to reach others in his area.

Intangibles: Durable, versatile, tough, and disciplined player with loads of potential. No major character concerns, but was arrested and suspended for a game for operating a moped while intoxicated in June 2009. Took responsibility for his actions.



Pick made at 5-10PM ET, Zona and the Bengals are OTC, Houston and 24champ can pick at any time.

With the 118th pick in the Draft the Houston Texans select OLB Perry Riley of LSU.






Read & React: Questionable instincts. Reacts quickly to the run and can beat the blocker to the action. Can be taken advantage of by good play-action, as he'll bite on the fake and lacks the redirection and acceleration to recover.

Run defense: His best trait. Attacks the line of scrimmage. Good balance and lateral agility to avoid blockers in space. Good size and strength to fight through blocks and make the tackle in close quarters. Takes good angles when running downhill or laterally against the run. Sees the cut block coming and reacts quickly to avoid it. Good effort downfield in pursuit.

Pass defense: May have to move to inside linebacker at the next level, as he lacks the agility to turn and the straight-line speed to run with tight ends and backs. At least adequate instincts for zone coverage, which helps him appear faster on film than he'll be in workouts. Keeps his head on a swivel and can be moved with the quarterback's eyes, but reacts quickly when the ball is thrown.

Tackling: Reliable open-field tackler. Good strength to pull down the ballcarrier when fighting through blocks, but is more of a catch tackler rather than a consistently explosive hitter, though he does flash some pop. Doesn't have great speed in pursuit, but takes good angles and closes quickly.

Pass Rush/Blitz: Only marginal burst off the snap as a stand up pass rusher. Relies on a simple bull-rush, showing very little wiggle or pass rush technique to get past the blocker when he doesn't have a clear lane.

Intangibles: Quietly developed into a leader for LSU despite having only started the past two seasons. Earned Defensive MVP honors following the 2008 Chick-fil-A Bowl victory over Georgia Tech (11 tackles, 1 tackle for loss). Part of a fearsome prep linebacker trio at Stephenson High School in the state of Georgia that saw all three members sign and play with BCS teams (LSU teammate Kelvin Sheppard, Florida State's Marcus Ball).
