And legarrette Blount, RB, Oregon:

Strengths
Strong runner who is big and gets down and is able to bore through arm tackles. Does not got down easily. Can find a seam and hit it. Excellent in the red zone.
Weaknesses
Character concerns. Has never been the featured back at the D 1 level. Lack of production. May only be a goal line/short yardage back.

1/31/10: The character concerns are still there, but LeGarrette Blount was the most impressive running back at the Senior Bowl. He just bulldozed over helpless defenders like the 2008 version of Brandon Jacobs.

The Jacksonville Jaguars select: Greg Hardy, DE, Univ of Mississippi

Height: 6-4 | Weight: 277 | 40-Time: 4.79


Strengths:
Explosive athlete with a sudden first step
Outstanding motor; nice second effort
Does a good job of staying low and gaining leverage
Quick, strong hands
Balanced and shows great flexibility
Runs the arc
Textbook pass-rush technique
Deadly spin move
Nice speed rush
Anticipates snap count well
Has a repertoire of moves
Reads development of play and reacts
Comfortable in space
Good range
Closes quickly from backside
Nice change of direction

Weaknesses: Average size and bulk
Needs to get stronger
Gets washed against the run
Inconsistent when setting the edge
Sometimes weak at point of attack
Not very powerful
Legitimate durability concerns
Might have character concerns (suspended for two games in 2007 for violation of team rules)

Summary: Hardy is projects as a right defensive end in a 4-3 scheme with the potential to play outside linebacker in the 3-4, but I think he is most comfortable with his hand in the ground. Hardy projects as one of the best pass rushers in the country for the 2010 NFL Draft, but he needs to stay healthy next season. Considered to be a first round talent at one point but injuries have really taken their toll and he may lack the intangibles needed to ever maximize that immense potential --- Intriguing prospect who could be a stud pass rusher at the next level if the light ever came on and he was able to stay healthy --- Boom or Bust type who could either be a major steal or out of the league completely in a few years.

Player Comparison: Adewale Ogunleye. Ogunleye is a great pass rusher off the edge, but is inconsistent against the run.
pick made @ 8:43 am mtn time.

And AJ Jefferson, CB, Fresno State:

Combine Results

Drill 40-Yard Vertical Jump 20-Yard
Shuttle 60-Yard
Shuttle Broad Jump 3-Cone Drill
Result 4.43 44 4.0 11.02 10'6" 6.72
Projected Round: 4th


Strengths

Jefferson greatly improved his draft stock after the combine, shooting up boards after landing first in the vertical jump, the 20-yard shuttle, the 60-yard shuttle, and 3rd in the broad jump and 3 cone drill. He also clocked an unofficial 4.43 40-yard dash, considerable fast for being 6'1. Jefferson shows good agility and straight line speed to close in on the ball if thrown in his area. He shows a very good effort in pursuit, and he takes a good angle on the ball the first time around. He will rarely give up on a play. His hips are fluid and his feet are quick enough to turn and cover a receiver down field. Jefferson rarely gets caught out of position and can make up for open space with his speed. Jefferson has the size and strength to wrap up most receivers. When it comes to contact, he won't shy away and often makes an attempt to strip the ball.
Weaknesses

When it comes to leaving everything on the field, Jefferson his often the last to do it. He'll often allow receivers to catch the ball before making a tackle, rather then going for the ball. He doesn't time his jumps well and has shown no promise that he has good hands. He has zero interceptions in 22 career starts. He'll peek in the backfield at times and will get beat as a result. On running plays, he'll avoid blocks and will often stand around a pile rather then get in the action. He's not an explosive hitter and needs to work on jamming receivers to the outside.
Overview

In short, Jefferson is a better athlete then football player. That's not to say that he doesn't have the potential to be steal in the later rounds of the draft. He could also immediately come in and return kickoffs and would be a reliable threat to opponents. With the combine results in, Jefferson's stock is sure to rise.

Deji Karim is going to be a great scat back for the Giants. Fast and has a nose for the endzone scoring 18 times last year!!

He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.37 seconds, which if not adjusted due to surface would have tied him for second among tailbacks at the Scouting Combine.

His vertical leap of 43 inches would have been first among all tailbacks, his broad jump of ten feet, three inches would have placed third, his 20-yard shuttle time of 4.05 seconds would have topped all tailbacks, his 6.67-second mark in the three-cone drill also would have been first, and his 19 reps in the 225-pound bench press would have been sixth among all tailbacks.

With the 150th Pick in the NFL Draft, the Houston Texans select CB Alterraun Verner of UCLA.








A savvy, playmaking cornerback, Verner would have earned much more national acclaim had he been playing in the Big Ten or SEC. He leaves UCLA an All-American with eye-popping individual production, including 279 career tackles, 56 passes broken up, 13 interceptions and five touchdowns (four of interceptions and one from a blocked field goal) while appearing in all 51 games for the Bruins the past four seasons.



Intangibles: Highly competitive defender who was voted a team captain in 2009. Never missed a game while at UCLA, appearing in all 51 contests and starting the past 35 consecutively. Earned Academic All-Pac-10 honors and has earned Director's Honor Roll accolades consistently throughout his time at UCLA. Served as a peer tutor and as a public speaker on the importance of staying in school. Mathematics-Applied Science major.

Edit...PICK WAS MADE AT 12:32 AM MTN time.

Redskins Look to add some qaulity safety depth with the pick up of TJ Ward. Though he's had some injuries Shanny and the REdskins add a very solid player with potential to play Safety and Corner in a pinch!

PERSONAL — Born Terrell Ray Ward on Dec. 12, 1986 in San Francisco. Parents: Terrell and LaNeita Ward. Family: One brother, one sister. High School (Coach): De La Salle (Bob Ladouceur) 2005. Major: Sociology. Redshirt: 2005.

2009 — After returning to the starting lineup Oct. 31 vs. USC, shared the team-lead in tackles in four of his final six appearances to leap to fifth on the team in stops (68) despite missing five games ... Lost for nearly half of the season after suffering an ankle injury in the opener at Boise State ... Ended his collegiate playing career with a 10-tackle performance vs. Ohio State in the Rose Bowl ... Credited with a season-high 12 stops at Stanford, in addition to forcing one fumble and securing one TFL ... Led the Ducks with 10 stops against the Trojans in addition to intercepting a pass on the final play of the game ... Posted a game-high 11 tackles and added 1.0 TFL and two pass breakups versus the Broncos despite leaving the contest early in the second half with an ankle injury.

2008 — Oregon’s leader in tackles (101) tied for fifth in the conference (7.8 avg.) as a first-year starter ... Earned third team (Phil Steele Publications) and honorable mention (coaches) Pacific-10 all-conference accolades ... Tied for second on the squad with eight pass breakups ... His 5.5 tackles for loss were the second most by a defensive back ... Made 10 or more tackles on four occasions, including a career-best 14 vs. Stanford ... Forced a pair of fumbles at California while recording 10 tackles ... Also contributed 11 tackles against UCLA as well as 10 vs. Arizona ... Had eight tackles and a forced fumble at Oregon State ... Made just one tackle at Arizona State, but forced a fumble ... Returned an interception 16 yards at Purdue ... Joined a pair of teammates in equaling the program’s best power clean lift of all time (330 lbs.) among defensive backs during 2008 winter testing, in addition to posting the position’s top squat mark (495 lbs.).

2007 — The former walk-on parlayed his role as one of the secondary’s top reserves with his development as one of team’s top special teams standouts ... The bulk of his 21 tackles in 13 appearances occurred while covering kickoffs, including a career-high four takedowns against Washington State as well as three others vs. Fresno State and Stanford ... Also recovered a fourth-quarter fumble against the Cardinal ... Worked his way into the lineup for a season-high 50 snaps vs. South Florida in the Sun Bowl, where he had two solo stops including a tackle for loss.

2006 — Emerged from spring drills as a starter at cornerback yet a knee injury early in fall camp placed those plans on hold ... Delayed his collegiate debut until Sept. 30, coming up with a key interception in the end zone to curtail an Arizona State scoring drive ... Yet injuries prevented his next action until the regular-season finale, finishing the season playing in only three games ... Stepped onto the field for a season-high 16 snaps in the Las Vegas Bowl.

2005 — Honored as scout team’s defensive player of the week for his part in Ducks’ preparations vs. USC as well as weekly defensive and special teams acclaim prior to game against California during his redshirt year.

With the 151st pick in the 2010 Orange Mane Mock Draft the Dallas Cowboys select: TED LARSEN, C, N.C. STATE

Photobucket



6'2 1/4"
304 lbs.

POSITIVES: High intensity player. Experience at defensive tackle helps him anticipate defender's moves. Impressive explosive burst and initial pop in the running game. Improving recognition. Improving with his hand placement and is generally able to knock his opponent out of the lane; keeps his legs chugging with quick power steps. Flashes some nastiness as a run blocker. Has the body control to adjust and hit a moving target. Experience at guard and has the short-area quickness and agility to pull effectively.

NEGATIVES: Struggles at times to adjust to stunts and blitzes. Helps out the guard, but doesn't release soon enough to react to the blitz or loop. Allows his hands to slip down the jersey and subsequently get ripped through by the defender. Still struggles with inconsistent snaps at times.

OUTLOOK: Recruited as a defensive tackle, Larsen switched to center at coach Tom O'Brien's request during 2008 spring drills. He is still rough around the edges, but Larsen's strength, tenacity and above-average mobility make him an intriguing development prospect.

PICK MADE AT 5:55 A.M. EST

BroncoBuff stepping in for the very late CHICAGO BEARS, who are 10 slots late with this 5th round pick.

I select, at 3:20 Mountain time, for my long, lost dear leader Jay Cutler .....

Riley Cooper
WR Florida


Perfect fit for Jay ... a greatly talented but petulant emo.

THE GOOD: Kid is tough as nails - goes over the middle and blocks like a bulldozer. At 6-3 1/2, 223 pounds he has great size to go with 4.49 speed, and he'll hold on to some circus catches. Natural athlete, good yac, soft hands and a willing special teamer. Compared widely and favorably to Eddie McCaffrey. Some say he was a one-year wonder for the Gators, but what do they expect? Until his senior year he played behind behind five or six guys who are in the league now.

THE BAD: Apparently he dogged it at the Senior Bowl, and raised red flags with some scouts for a less than enthusiastic attitude. He played baseball for the Gators, and after being drafted by the Texas Rangers, played one summer in the farm system. Some concerns have been raised about baseball, but I'm not worried .... in 89 at bats he struck out 41 times ... and the breaking balls get better and better as you climb the ladder of course.

St. Louis Rams select.....



Brandon Lang, DE, Troy

Lang is an ideal project DE for Steve Spagnuolo. He's shown the natural ability to get to the QB and now just needs someone to help him refine it. Strikes me as an excellent comp to Osi Umenyiora, another Troy grad that Spags coached up into an elite pass rusher.

Quote:
Originally Posted by NFL.com Combine report
Overview
Lang had two very productive years after coming of a season-ending injury in 2007. He is another player that will be a projection to outside linebacker at the next level. Lang was a strong, athletic, tough end in the Trojans' 4-3 front that is best attacking the line of scrimmage. He runs well for his size but lacks elite lateral agility and range in coverage. Lang could be effective in short zone drops but is likely a liability in man coverage schemes. He uses his hands well and is an instinctive player but needs to improve his initial reads to maintain leverage in both the run game as well as defending the pass. Lang is a good football player that is a bit of a tweener (size and athleticism) and in the mode of a "poor man's" Demarcus Ware. Lang will contribute on special teams, while developing his overall game. He will likely blossom in his second and third seasons in the league.

Strengths
Lang has a great combination of height and weight for an outside linebacker. He possesses outstanding overall strength. Gets great initial pop jolting blockers. He’s a tough, competitive performer who held up against Troy’s tougher out-of-conference opponents. Can turn the corner as a pass rusher.

Weaknesses
Lang’s a projection prospect who could take time to develop. His ability to anchor at the line of scrimmage as a defensive end at the next level is questionable. Needs to become more consistent with his initial reactions. Coverage ability and techniques need work. Must improve his open field tackling.

With the 156th pick in the 2010 NFL draft the iDenver and the Baltimore Ravens select Darryl Sharpton.

Darryl Sharpton, Miami
Height: 6-0. Weight: 230.
Projected 40 Time: 4.67.
Combine 40 Time: 4.73.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.74.
Benchx225: 24. Vertical: 31.
Projected Round (2010): 4-5

I know its hard for ravens fans to think about losing Ray Lewis but that day will come and they need to start getting youngsters in there for ray to groom. Darryl can be a great project for the ravens. He is raw but has a lot of upside.

Pick was made at 5:47 PM MST
