Default Bored need some help with My Mock

1. Marcell Dareus, DE/DT/NT, Alabama
2.a Mario Harvey, ILB, Marshall
2b Joseph Barksdale, OT, LSU
3 Kenrick Ellis, NT, Hampton


From the players below where would you pick them for denver. I am having some trouble determinig were these players should be taken as opposed to were they will be selected.
The player profiles came from walterfootbal.com

Add players to the list but just explain why they should be added.


ILB
Mario Harvey, ILB, Marshall
Height: 6-0. Weight: 257.
Projected 40 Time: 4.76.
Combine 40 Time: DNP.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.43.
Benchx225: 27. Vertical: . Arm: .
Projected Round (2011): 4-6.
3/18/11: Mario Harvey really turned some heads at his Pro Day. Despite bulking up to 257 (from his 250-pound listed weight), Harvey ran a 4.43 on Thursday. He also recorded 27 reps of 225. Harvey ran like a receiver by some accounts.

10/9/10: Harvey has been getting a lot of hype this season for his play and rightfully so. He's outstanding in run support as a sure tackler and being able to shed blockers at will.

5/12/10: Mario Harvey has a knack for getting to the quarterback; as a junior, he had 117 tackles, 8.5 TFL and seven sacks, earning All-Conference USA First Team honors.

Martez Wilson, ILB, Illinois - Scouting Report
Height: 6-4. Weight: 250.
Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
Combine 40 Time: 4.44.
Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
Benchx225: 23. Vertical: 36. Arm: 34 5/8.
Projected Round (2011): 1-2.
3/17/11: Martez Wilson did not have a good Pro Day. He didn't hurt himself with a slow 40 or anything; rather, Wilson displayed horrific footwork. The consensus sentiment was that Wilson really hurt his draft stock.

3/1/11: If it weren't for Von Miller, Martez Wilson would have drawn all the attention during Monday's workout session. At 6-4, 250, Wilson ran a 4.44 40 and notched a 36-inch vertical.

1/28/11: Write-ups for these rankings will be added later; there were "personnel complications" on the site, which is why these rankings haven't been updated in a while.

2/16/09: Didn't emerge as the star everyone believed he would be; starting a handful of games, Martez Wilson had 73 tackles, 5.5 TFL and three sacks. However, the big story is that Wilson had to go to the hospital in December after being stabbed outside of a bar.

8/2/08: Martez Wilson didn't start as a freshman, but he displayed his outstanding athleticism and play-making skills in relief efforts. Once Wilson establishes himself as a star in the Big Ten, he could be atop his list. He already has the combine numbers.
DT
1. Marcell Dareus, DE/DT/NT, Alabama - Scouting Report
Height: 6-3. Weight: 319.
Projected 40 Time: 4.90.
Combine 40 Time: 4.92.
Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
Benchx225: 24. Vertical: 27. Arm: 33 3/8.
Projected Round (2011): Top 3 Pick.
3/10/11: Marcell Dareus didn't run the 40 at his Pro Day, but he looked outstanding in the drills. He drew serious praise from Gil Brandt, who wrote, "To me, hes the real deal. Hes a power player like Ndamukong Suh was last year. He could have that kind of impact, I think." Representitves from all 32 teams, including John Elway and Buddy Nix, were present to watch the Alabama players work out.

3/1/11: When Marcell Dareus weighed in at 6-3, 319, I wrote that I was very curious to see how he'd perform at the Combine. Well, Dareus is a stud. He ran a 4.92, which is unbelievable considering his size. Dareus could be the second overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, and he's sure to be the first defensive tackle off the board.

10/8/10: Dareus has been a beast this year for Alabama. His power, strength, tenacity and athleticism are all prototypical to play 5-technique in the NFL. Because of his versatility, you can lock him into the top five picks.

5/8/10: Marcell Dareus can play for any defense, but is better suited for the 3-4. As a mere sophomore, Dareus notched 6.5 sacks in only four starts (Nick Saban habitually doesn't play his young guys over his veterans). Dareus will start in 2010 and is expected to reach double-digit sacks.

Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor
Height: 6-3. Weight: 334.
Projected 40 Time: 5.35.
Combine 40 Time: 5.18.
Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
Benchx225: 31. Vertical: 29.5. Arm: 34.
Projected Round (2011): 1-2.
3/5/11: Phil Taylor didn't run the 40 at his Pro Day, but he had a tremendous workout, prompting Gil Brandt to write that Taylor "I believe he might have solidified himself as a first-round pick with his workout."

3/1/11: Phil Taylor continues to impress. He lost some more weight (334) and despite his massive frame, he ran a 5.18 at the Combine. Taylor has completely turned his life around, and he's definitely looking like a first-round pick.

1/30/11: Phil Taylor dominated the North team's supposed elite offensive line, beating double teams and wreaking havoc on the North's quarterbacks. The NFL Network guys remarked that 335-pound players aren't supposed to have Taylor's moves. Taylor could sneak into the bottom of the first round.

1/26/11: Phil Taylor is a monster and might be moving into late first-round consideration. He dominated every matchup in the one-on-one drills. It was amazing how easily he pushed around an overmatched Demarcus Love.

5/6/10: Like Terrence Cody, Phil Taylor's weight will need to be monitored. The prospect of adding a 355-pound nose tackle sounds nice until he shows up to training camp at 390.


Marvin Austin, DT, North Carolina
Height: 6-2. Weight: 309.
Projected 40 Time: 4.88.
Combine 40 Time: 4.80.
Pro Day 40 Time: .
Benchx225: 38. Vertical: 30.5. Arm: 32 5/8.
Projected Round (2011): 2-3.
3/1/11: In the words of Al Davis, "Marvin... Austin... is a... great... playa... too bad... we've spent... all our money... on John... Hendehson... and... Richard... Seemoh..."

After dominating the East-West Game, Austin had a strong showing at the Combine. At 6-2, 309 pounds, Austin ran a 4.80 40 and notched a 38-inch vertical.

1/26/11: Marvin Austin predictably dominated the East-West Shrine Game, but reportedly bombed in the interviews. Someone will take a shot on him with a Day 2 pick.

10/8/10: Austin has been suspended indefinitely by head coach Butch Davis, and this is unrelated to the NCAA investigation of the North Carolina football team. Pictures and information have surfaced and there is now a mountain of character concerns surrounding Austin. Some team might take a gamble on Austin's talent in the early rounds, but there is also the chance that 75 percent of the league removes him from their 2011 NFL Draft Boards.

5/6/10: This year's Carlos Dunlap finished his junior year with six TFL and four sacks.


Jarvis Jenkins, DE/DT, Clemson
Height: 6-4. Weight: 310.
Projected 40 Time: 5.06.
Combine 40 Time: 4.98.
Pro Day 40 Time: .
Benchx225: 17. Vertical: 26.5. Arm: 33 1/4.
Projected Round (2011): 2-4.
1/26/11: Jarvis Jenkins proved to be too much for center Kris O'Dowd. Jenkins dominated the matchup in the one-on-one drills.

10/8/10: Jenkins has the build you want as a 5-technique, but he's too inconsisten to be taken much earlier in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Kenrick Ellis, NT, Hampton
Height: 6-5. Weight: 346.
Projected 40 Time: 5.41.
Combine 40 Time: 5.19.
Pro Day 40 Time: .
Benchx225: 26. Vertical: . Arm: 35 1/8.
Projected Round (2011): 3-5.
10/8/10: Ellis has all the physical talent, but he has some work ethic concerns and isn't very consistent in games.

DB
Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU - Scouting Report
Height: 6-0. Weight: 218.
Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
Combine 40 Time: 4.32.
Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
Benchx225: 15. Vertical: 38. Arm: 32.
Projected Round (2011): Top 4 Pick.
3/15/11: Patrick Peterson didn't run the 40 or anything at his Pro Day, but he looked great in the drills once again. He scheduled a private workout with the Denver Broncos. At this point, it'll be a major upset if Peterson falls out of the top four picks.

3/2/11: Patrick Peterson confirmed that he's the best cornerback prospect since Charles Woodson on Tuesday. Despite measuring in at 6-0, 219, he ran a 4.32 40 and notched a 38-inch vertical. Like Woodson, Peterson has the size and speed to play multiple positions on defense. He won't be the No. 1 pick, but he can go as high as No. 3 to Buffalo. I don't see him falling past Cincinnati.

1/28/11: Write-ups for these rankings will be added later; there were "personnel complications" on the site, which is why these rankings haven't been updated in a while.

10/9/10: Peterson has really shown how dominant of a punt returner he is this season. His speed and vision really speak volumes as a return man, but he's also been a beast in run support and in coverage this season. He could go as high as the top three picks especially with the Detroit Lions in need of a cornerback.

5/13/10: One of the top cornerback prospects to come along in a very long time, Patrick Peterson broke up 13 passes in 2009.

OT
Joseph Barksdale, OT, LSU - Scouting Report
Height: 6-5. Weight: 325.
Projected 40 Time: 5.25.
Combine 40 Time: 5.33.
Pro Day 40 Time: .
Benchx225: 29. Arm: 36.
Projected Round (2011): 2-4.
10/2/10: Barksdale isn't getting the national recognition he deserves. He is by far the best technician in his draft class. He has elite knee bend, has textbook hand use, and displays nice patience in pass protection. He's a very athletic, talented player who will eventually be climbing 2011 NFL Draft boards.

4/3/10: Could be the first left tackle chosen in the 2011 NFL Draft. Joseph Barksdale is a very athletic lineman who had a great year with LSU. He'll move over to the blind side in 2010.
Benjamin Ijalana, G/OT, Villanova
Height: 6-4. Weight: 317.
Projected 40 Time: 5.30.
Combine 40 Time: DNP.
Pro Day 40 Time: .
Benchx225: . Arm: 36.
Projected Round (2011): 1-2.
2/27/11: Ben Ijalana looked very impressive at the 2011 Combine weigh-in. Ijalana was 6-4, 317 with 36-inch arms. He helped his cause to be a right tackle in the NFL.

4/3/10: Has started every game of his Villanova career. Made the All-Division 1-AA Second Team as a junior

Marcus Cannon, G, TCU
Height: 6-6. Weight: 349.
Projected 40 Time: 5.34.
Combine 40 Time: 5.20.
Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
Benchx225: 33. Arm: 34.
Projected Round (2011): 2-3.
3/12/11: The one thing worth noting from Marcus Cannon's Pro Day is that he weighed in at 349. He was 358 at the Combine.

2/27/11: Marcus Cannon weighed in at 6-5, 358. Based on his size, you'd expect him to be fat, slow and lethargic. On the contrary, Cannon did not appear as though he was anything close to 358. He ran a 5.20 40 and looked very fluid in all the drills. Cannon seems to have cemented his Round 2 status. He may even be selected at the end of Round 1 if a team believes he can play right tackle.

10/2/10: Cannon has been a physically dominant player for TCU this season as he will likely have to kick inside at the next level.

Danny Watkins, G, Baylor - Scouting Report
Height: 6-3. Weight: 310.
Projected 40 Time: 5.13.
Combine 40 Time: 5.28.
Pro Day 40 Time: .
Benchx225: 29. Arm: 34 1/4.
Projected Round (2011): 2.
3/5/11: Like Phil Taylor, Danny Watkins had a great workout at Baylor's Pro Day. The 26-year-old guard will likely be drafted in Round 2.

1/27/11: Danny Watkins would be a high second-round pick if he weren't 27 years old. He looks great. A team ready to win now may take him in the third round.

1/26/11: Danny Watkins looks like he's ready to play right now. Then again, that better be the case because he's 27 years old. Watkins looked great Tuesday in the one-on-one matchups.

1/25/11: Danny Watkins would be much higher on this list if he weren't 27 years old. Was taken fourth overall in the 2010 CFL Draft.
