With the 187th pick in the draft, the Houston Texans select Safety Kurt Coleman from Ohio State.





The clear leader of the Buckeyes' defense, Coleman was named the Most Valuable Player at Ohio State in 2009. He has raised his game over the past three seasons, all as a starter at strong safety, to become of the top back half defenders in this year's class.

The in-state product saw the field increasing throughout his true freshman season, making nine tackles, before stepping into a starting role in 2007. He earned honorable mention All-Big 10 honors that year with 64 tackles, 3.5 for loss, and four pass breakups.

In 2008, the second-team all-conference pick had four interceptions in addition to his 78 tackles, four for loss despite missing the first two games with an ankle injury. Coleman completed his ascension this fall, earning top honors from the league's coaches after picking off five passes and forcing three fumbles.

Most teams insist safeties have great size. Coleman isn't big, but he has everything else necessary to succeed at the next level, including toughness, athleticism, intelligence, ball skills and character which means he could be a top 125 pick in April.




Pick made at 2:36 Mountain Time.

With the 190th pick of the OM 2010 NFL Draft.

The New England Patriots select

Lindsey Witten OLB UConn


Analysis
Pass rush: Provides pass rush from either side of the line due to his length and his ability to push his man back using those long arms to leverage. His lack of flexibility is an issue when unable to bend to turn the corner and when he gets too wide on stunts. Uses a wide stance to get a running start against the tackle, however, and won't bull rush and get off blocks easily at the next level. Needs to develop counter pass rush moves. Good backfield awareness, can affect passing lanes with his length and vertical.

Run defense: Tall, lanky and a bit stiff in the hips, does not change directions easily in space. Gets handled too easily by stronger tackles at times, but plays both the strong and weak side of the formation. Must be more consistent using his hand to disengage from blocks for run defense (and in his pass rush), as he is effective against the run when he does. Lowers his shoulder instead of his hands to take on pulling guards. Aware of misdirection and keeps containment.

Explosion: Adequate quickness off the snap but really relies on his length to get past tackles. Can pop his man's pads on initial contact and stay engaged with him down the line but is not strong enough to knock the tackle back or push him into the pocket.

Strength: Plays stronger than expected with his relatively thin frame. Stands his man up, even in short-yardage situations, using his long arms to keep tackles at bay. Doesn't rip off tackles to disengage consistently.

Tackling: Uses length to wrap up around the line of scrimmage. Drags ballcarriers down and catches them from behind, is not overly explosive. Lacks the flexibility to break down in space, though he still works to get to elusive runners. Gets down the line and downfield with good speed and hustles to be the second or third man to the ball.

Intangibles: Intense, fiery competitor who is not afraid to mix it up; he won't back down if challenged by offensive players. Worked hard to bulk up and did not get down about his reserve role early in his career. No known character issues.

Pick made at 5-18PM ET, Zona and the Bengals are OTC.

Bills Select - Nolan Carroll CB Maryland

Read & React: Still developing in this area. Understands what the receiver is trying to do and has experience at that position. At his best facing the quarterback and has a good burst to close. Has the straight-line speed to chase receivers across the field.
Man Coverage: Physical defender. Will use his hands and body lean to disrupt the timing and route-running of his opponent. A bit high in his backpedal and has a hitch when turning, which negates his straight-line speed. Good size to handle bigger receivers on slants and crossing patterns.
Zone Coverage: Improving awareness for zone coverage. Keeps an eye on the underneath receiver and but protects the back end as well. Comes off his man to react to the ball being thrown, but is not so aggressive as to open holes for the quarterback.
Closing/Recovery: More fast than he is quick, but has enough of a burst to close downhill and knock the ball away. Competes for the jump ball and has an explosive vertical. Quick, active hands to knock the ball free, but was moved to cornerback from receiver for a reason -- had zero interceptions and nine passes broken up the 2008-09 seasons. Has to show better hand-eye coordination and a greater focus on interceptions than the big hit.
Run Support: Fights through receiver blocks to get involved, but is still learning the nuances of the position. Only marginal rip technique to disengage. Good agility to elude bigger blockers. Willing open-field tackler that provides a pop upon contact.
Tackling: One of his better areas. Physical and makes the secure stop in the open field. Good strength for the drag-down tackle. Times hits well and can knock the ball out of the receiver's hands to break up the pass. Quality special teams defender that posted seven tackles in 2007. Intangibles: Has struggled with durability throughout his career and missed all but two games in 2009 with a broken right tibia. Underwent surgery on September 18 to have a screw inserted to stabilize the bone. Emerged as a team leader and was voted captain in 2009. Graduated with a degree in Family Science in December.

From the sack master that predicted the greatness of Justin Tuck and Elvis Dumervil comes his next great guess in......

Brandon Sharpe DE/OLB Texas Tech

Texas Tech DE Brandon Sharpe measured a height of 6017, 254 pounds. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.71 seconds, the short shuttle in 4.54 seconds and the 3-cone drill in 7.39 seconds. He measured a 35-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot-0 broad jump and completed 23 repetitions on the 225-pound bench press.

He came out of no where as a senior to record 15 sacks.

Pick made 10:19 CST

With the 181st pick overall in the 2010 NFL Draft the Chicago Bears wake up Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith form their long slumber to finally put in their pick.

Jeromy Miles SS UMASS


03/30/2010 - PRO DAY RESULTS: Other notable prospects among the 20 (12 from UMass, eight from area schools) that worked out were as follows: DB Jeromy Miles (6-2 1/8, 210) had a 35-inch vertical, a 10-10 broad jump, a 4.24 short shuttle, a 6.72 three-cone drill and did 13 bench press reps. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

This two-time FCS All-American began his career at the Naval Academy, but transferred to UMass after a Freshman All-American season in which he started 11 games and made 61 tackles, two interceptions and two forced fumbles. Miles' decision to leave the military behind proved fruitful for the Minutemen as he started every one of the team's 36 games over the next three years.

Miles was named to the All-Colonial Athletic Association third-team in his first year at UMass, making 67 tackles, intercepting two passes, breaking up nine others and forcing four fumbles. As a junior, he gained All-American notice by ringing up 104 tackles, five for loss and three interceptions. And though his numbers were down a bit in 2009 (64 tackles, 0.5 for loss, two interceptions), he played more Cover-2 and teams were wary about throwing in his direction. The Walter Camp Foundation recognized him as an FCS All-American after the season.

Despite all that production, Miles' campus workout (4.45-second 40, 6.81 three cone) may have put him over the top for teams looking at late-round safeties. His quickness and ball skills, along with aggressive tackling that will be used on defense and special teams early on, should elevate him into being drafted.

Read & React: Recognizes run or pass quickly, and keeps an eye on the quarterback while understanding routes coming in his area. Jumps screen passes, fighting through blocks to do so. Could chase down plays across the field more regularly.

Man Coverage: Lines up against slot receivers regularly, and has the length and strength to press. Needs to tighten up his backpedal as he tends to get high and choppy, but transitions well to run with receivers down the field. Adequate change of direction skills to stay with larger receivers but does not have elite agility to stay with quicker NFL slot men. Breaks on the ball, however, and uses his recognition skills to jump routes or be in the right place for a tipped-ball interception. Good concentration and hands to make the play and can outrun would-be tacklers, run through them, or make them miss after the catch to flip field position.

Zone Coverage: Good range to cover the deep half, and quick enough to get to the sideline or the seam to help out his corner. Explosive tackler on plays in front of him. Can be a step late to see open receivers on seam routes.

Closing/Recovery: Good acceleration to the ball when it is in the air; can knock away passes as the ball arrives or as the receiver make the catch. Lacks great recovery speed if beaten by a double move or if late recognizing receiver coming into his area.

Run Support: Very willing and physical in run support, attacking the line of scrimmage. Will duck his head but usually gets into the thigh of the running back and wraps up a leg to bring him down. Seven career forced fumbles shows ability to get his helmet on the ball. Maintains gap responsibility. Will get redirected by receiver blocks or try to run around them, but is strong enough to shed.

Tackling: Secure wrap-up tackler in the box or in space. Likes to lower the shoulder as well on receivers on crossing routes. Comfortable in the box or playing deep. Angles to the ball could be improved, but usually has the length and agility to still make the play.

Intangibles: Team captain as a senior who understood his role as a motivator and leader by example for the team's younger players. Academic all-conference in 2008, 2009. Navy transfer could be a red flag, but Miles and his coaches say he learned discipline and respect during his time in Annapolis. Special teams contributor. Durable four-year starter.


This Small school project is looking to step in and help right away!!!

The Arizona Cardinals have triple checked the alpha list, and then stayed up extremely late just to select Jeff Owens, DT, Georgia. I'm not sure how he'll find a role, but a player with his size, ability, leadership, work ethic, and a mythical level of strength (44 mof'ing reps - 1 off the combine record), he's simply TOO amazing of a prospect to not dive all over at this point in the draft, and I'm semi shocked he wasn't gone by mid-round 4.

With the 196th pick in the 2010 Orange Mane Mock Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select: Leigh Tiffin, K, Alabama

Photobucket



PK Leigh Tiffin, Alabama Sr. 6-2 212. Tiffin is Alabama's all-time leader with 378 points and 82 field goals during his 45-game career with the Tide. He has also converted 132 career extra points. During the 2009 season, Tiffin converted 29 of 33 field goal attempts and 38 of 41 extra points. The 29 field goals established the single-season school record. Tiffin converted all five field goal attempts in the Tide's 22-3 win at Mississippi on Oct. 10. He also nailed four field goals in wins over No. 7 Virginia Tech and Tennessee. He was a three-time Lou Groza Star of Stars recipient after wins over Virginia Tech, Mississippi and Tennessee. He was also named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week following the win over Tennessee. He was a finalist for the Groza Award.

STRENGTHS: Tiffin possesses adequate size and is a good enough athlete for the position. Has maintained solid mechanics throughout his career. Has adequate leg strength on long field goal attempts. Has been very accurate. Has a solid work ethic and has shown metal toughness in big games.

WEAKNESSES: Not a lot of major areas of concern with Tiffin. May need to improve his kickoff depth at the next level to consistently win the field position battle.

A position of major need for the Cowboys, Tiffin is a student of recently added kicking consultant Chris Boniol.

PICK MADE AT 5:05 A.M. EST

With the 198th Pick NY Jets J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS Select :

Zac Robinson, QB, Oklahoma St.

Zac Robinson is often overshadowed by other quarterbacks in the Big 12, but he has been just as productive. Even as a redshirt freshman in 2006, Robinson was productive as a backup to Bobby Reid. The following season Robinson won the starting job over Reid and proved to be a very efficient signal caller. He completed 60.4 percent of his passes and threw 23 touchdowns and just nine interceptions. In 2008 he was even more efficient, completing 65.0 percent of his passes and throwing for 25 touchdowns.
In 2009, Robinson has been struggling on occasion. His completion percentage is down and he only has 15 touchdown passes and has thrown seven interceptions through ten games. Those numbers will keep him out of the conversation as far as being a top quarterback prospect goes, but at 6-3 and 218 pounds, Robinson has the size and the skills to be a productive quarterback at the next level.
As Robinson's stock drops, others' are rising. Players like Jimmy Clausen, Tony Pike and Jake Locker were on the same level with Robinson heading into the 2009 season, but are now likely to be taken ahead of the Oklahoma State signal caller. That leaves Robinson as a mid-level selection (unless he has a great senior week and NFL Combine). 2/15 Update: And thus far Robinson has been doing great during the off-season workouts. He was easily the best quarterback at the Senior Bowl and ended up throwing for 176 yards and a touchdown. Compared to Pike, Tim Tebow and Dan LeFevour, Robinson was brilliant and the only quarterback on the field that played under control and made smart decisions

With the 197th overall pick in the NFL Draft. The Houston Texans select TE Tony Moeaki from Iowa.





Injuries have prevented Moeaki from meeting the lofty expectations he brought to Iowa as a high school All-American and the top tight end prospect in the country by some recruiting services. Even in his first-team All-Big Ten breakout senior season (30 receptions, 387 yards, four touchdowns) he missed three games with a high ankle sprain.

After two years in which he offered solid blocking and receiving as a reserve (11-140-3 in 2006, 8-112-0 in 2005 as a true freshman), he played only nine games with one start in 2008 (13-144-1) due to nagging injuries and concussions and four games in 2007 (14-170-3) before receiving a medical redshirt due to a broken wrist and dislocated elbow.

When healthy, Moeaki's strong blocking and ability to make spectacular catches make it easy to picture him as an NFL starter. those durability issues will not disappear during the draft process no matter how much he impressed scouts with his hands and athleticism at the Combine and his pro day.

With the 200th selection the Philadelphia Eagles select:

Walter Thurmond III, CB, Oregon, 5'11", 189



Strengths:
Thurmond is the kind of prospect coaches really like because of his outstanding work ethic and competitiveness. Additionally, hes a player with good size, strength and athleticism for the cornerback position. Also possesses good ball skills needed to make the tough interception. Was a highly productive player for the Ducks throughout his career and brings more value to the table as a return specialist.

Weaknesses:
Despite a quality frame, Thurmond lacks a little bulk and needs to improve his hand use to ward off blockers when coming up in run support. Durability is another possible area of concern as hes coming off season-ending knee injury.

Kade Weston, Nose Tackle, Georgia
325 pounds

Strengths
Another powerful nose tackle with the length to be looked at as a possible 3-4 DE conversion project. Pretty strong (should get 30 reps at his pro day.) Does a good job of eating up blockers. Has the most upside of any of the 3 Georgia DTs. Has caused problems for opposing offenses time and again. Not getting anywhere near the credit he deserves and thus could be a bargain pick for somebody in the late rounds. Shows up every day and punches the time clock.

Weaknesses
Not the productive type. Hasn't shown a huge array of moves. Doesn't get to the quarterback (something NFL teams value these days). Is a bit ground bound, and laterally challenged. Will have to remain purely a rotation guy at the next level, UNLESS he can successfully transition to 3-4 DE where he may not have the sustained energy level to be a starter.

Projection
5th round - purely on upside.

Kade is on the left.

The Jacksonville Jaguars select: Marcus Easley, WR, Univ. of Connecticut

Height: 6-3 Weight: 210

40 Time: 4.39






04/02/10 - PRO DAY RESULTS: When position coaches are dispatched to a pro day, it typically signifies a definite interest in a particular prospect. Remember that when it comes to Connecticut WR Marcus Easley (6-foot-2 3/4, 211 pounds). Included among the 20 team representatives on hand for UConn’s pro day were the receivers coaches from the Jets and Ravens. That could be a good sign for Easley’s draft stature, and he took advantage of the attention. He stood on most of his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine, but posted an impressive 37 1/2-inch vertical jump and looked good in position drills. – Gil Brandt, NFL.com

With the 205th pick of the OM 2010 NFL Draft.

The New England Patriots select

Emmanuel Sanders WR SMU


Analysis
Release: Good, not great, quickness off the line. Has the deep speed to accelerate past the average NFL cornerback on vertical routes. Plants to get inside for slants or seam routes after taking corner upfield one or two steps.

Hands: Solid receiver who adjusts to low, wide and short throws downfield as well as leap to bring in overthrown passes. Loses concentration on catchable passes at times when trying to make something happen before the catch. Adequate vertical on jump balls, may not win the strength battles at the next level. Tracks balls over either shoulder, but lacks great flexibility to continue running at full speed. Ball security can be an issue, though, as he will hold the ball loosely as a receiver and returner (three fumbles in 2009).

Route running: Takes advantage of spread offense, using his speed to press corners and a quick shift to get the seam or corner route. Adequate body control, gets a bit loose on the run but manages to get feet down before going out of bounds. Effective on jerk routes because of his knack for crossing the field in front of linebackers.

After the catch: A bit of a long strider but flashes the ability to sink his hips, cut inside or outside, and accelerate after the catch. Best when sidestepping oncoming defensive backs and using quick cuts when running downfield. Should get a chance as a punt returner, though he must be consistent in his willingness to run straight upfield instead of running backwards or getting the corner against quicker NFL special teamers.

Blocking: Usually tries to fake defender into thinking he's going into a route to keep him out of the play instead of blocking on the line. He will get in the way or even lower a shoulder downfield against defenders focused on the ball, but his slight build and marginal effort makes it tough to him to sustain.

Intangibles: Earned his place as a team leader in 2009, getting his teammates to work harder so they could go bowling this season. Suspended for the last two games of 2008 for three minor academic and football violations. That's not a major character issue; in fact, it probably pushed him to be better.

With the 208th pick of the OM 2010 NFL Draft.

The New England Patriots select

Daniel Te'o-Nesheim OLB Washington


Analysis
Pass rush: Varies his speed off the edge. Is able to gain the edge more often than you'd expect for only having marginal overall burst and acceleration. Quick, active hands and a good pass-rush repertoire, including a swim, rip and developing club move. Good overall strength for the bull rush. Cerebral pass rusher that recognizes the screen and will drop off to locate the receiver. Reads the quarterback's eyes and times his leaps in an effort to knock down passes at the line of scrimmage.

Run defense: Better strength than his size would indicate to hold up at the point of attack. Good lateral agility slip wide and the discipline to keep contain. Funnels the action back inside to his teammates. Good hustle laterally and downfield.

Explosion: Provides a good initial pop to shed blocks. Flashes some pop to knock the ballcarrier to the ground. Has a short area burst to gather momentum and explode into the ballcarrier. Can separate the ball from the ballcarrier.

Strength: Good pad level and overall strength for the bull rush and to maintain his position in the running game. Anchors well and has the strength and placement in his hands to stack and shed. Good catch and drag down tackler, able to latch on even when still fighting off the blocker.

Tackling: Effective wrap-up tackler that flashes some explosiveness as a hitter. Stalks the ballcarrier and shows good speed and better than expected agility to track him down. Good chase defender who hustles in pursuit.

Intangibles: Highly respected by fans, teammates and the coaching staff. Was a consistent recipient of hustle awards throughout his career - earning the Mark Drennan Defensive Scout Squad Player of the Year when redshirting in 2005 to earning the John P. Angel Defensive Lineman of the Year from 2007-09. Recognized as the Defensive MVP following the 2008 and 2009 seasons. Voted team captain in 2008 and 2009. Participated on the UW track and field team, throwing the shot put and discus and finishing 14th and 16th, respectively, at the 2006 Pac-10 Championships.

Buffalo Bills Select-

C.J. Wilson, DE East Carolina


Wilson's strength and technique at the point of attack helped him emerge as one of the nation's most productive defensive ends. He was named Conference USA's Defensive MVP as a senior, racking up 57 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks. He returned a blocked extra point against Southern Miss to help the team get back to the Conference USA championship game, where it beat Houston.
Hardly a one-year wonder, Wilson came on to start seven games as a true freshman (he put off enrolling until the 2006 spring semester to meet academic requirements) with four sacks. As a sophomore he forced his way into the starting lineup after a few games, earning second-team All-Conference USA with seven sacks. Wilson had 70 tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks in 2008 to earn first-team all-conference accolades. Clifford James Wilson has the look of a top-100 pick, although depth at the position will force him down some team's draft boards. Though not particularly flashy in terms of beating tackles off the edge, his strength and workmanlike effort as a pass rusher earn respect among scouts.
