Andrews- TE, RS-JR, 6-5, 254-
He is a guy that a lot of people like more than I do. When I watched
him he dropped the ball a little more than made me happy. Not that
he stinks. It's just a case of other having him rated higher so they
would take him before I would, which happens a lot in Drafts. When
he get hot, and Mayfield throws to him, he can put up some numbers.
won the Mackey award as college football's best tight end.
"There’s guys like Jermaine Gresham, Keith Jackson, Trent
Smith and James Hanna. All those type of guys who have played here
and have been incredible tight ends who have gone on to have great
NFL careers. To be the first to have that award, it’s extremely
humbling," Andrews said about winning the Mackey award.
"All those guys are incredible players and I’m incredibly
honored to be able to receive this award and bring this award to the
University of Oklahoma." Like I said, he will go in Round Two.
wouldn't take him in Round Two. "He’s a vital part and key to
our success," Mayfield said. "Mark’s just such a great
talent, and, leadership-wise, he doesn’t care how many catches he
gets. He’s going to give it his all. He wants to win. I love that.
He’s a guy that we need to keep getting the ball in his
hands." Not that I think he sucks, I just think his hands are a
is a good blocker on the third level on the WR screen. Catches it
short well, but is not going to get a lot of yards afterwards. I
don't think he is a Day Two prospect, but someone will take him Day
Two. He will drop the tough one that he has to reach out for
sometimes. I don’t get it with this guy. He misses blocks outside
on WR screens. Lines up in the slot a lot and drops the ball.
OU's all-time leader in receiving yards by a tight end (1,713)
... also ranks sxth overall in career TD receptions (20), tied for
10th in career 100-yard games (3), 11th in career receiving yards

108 catches (20.4 percent) have resulted in touchdowns.
*Orlando Brown- OL 6-8, 357, RS-JR-
He is a giant of a man. "Just his size, man. He's one of the
biggest humans I've [ever] seen," his high school teammate
Lorenzo Carter said. "He's just a big challenge. I loved it.
He's competitive, I'm competitive. We got after it, I remember that.
It was a good battle." But with his size comes great long arms.
worry about his ability to dance backwards outside with speed
rushers. "It’s an unnatural position," OK OL coach Bill
Bedenbaugh said. “You don’t walk around with bent knees and low
pad levels. It’s just the most unnatural position there is.
You’re going backward, going sideways all the time. You’re going
forward. To be even a good o-line coach you have to be invested in
it and always developing your skills and always learning new skills
and learning new things and helping your players becoming better
players." But he could be on the Board at 32, when the Pats no
longer have Solder, Cannon, or Fleming on the roster. If he can hold
his feet kicksliding against speed, he could be a great one.
has developed into maybe the best OLT in college football.
"Throughout the years, he's really stepped up and become that
sort of guy everyone can rely on," Mark Andrews said.
"It's awesome having a guy, especially on the [offensive line],
that leads everybody and brings that passion to the game." He
rarely gives up a sack.
can knock the DE five yards sideways when they run behind him. Great
power blocker. He plays too high sometimes, but doesn't seem to lose
power, because he is so huge. Keeps his hand too low sometimes when
moving backwards. He has to show he can kick slide against speed
with his hands up. I think he can play OLT in the NFL.
Baker Mayfield- QB, 6-1, 226, SR-
He does throw like Drew Brees sometimes. "I’m not going to
talk about Baker," Andrews said. "That’s for Coach Riley
to talk about. These last two practices have been some of the best
practices that we’ve had all year in terms of sharpness and
energy. The guys are ready to play. These practices have been energy
filled and passionate and guys flying around. It was really good to
see." His best hope is that someone sees him like Drew Brees.
has the arm. But his size is a detriment in the NFL. However, he is
great throwing on the move, which he will have to do in the NFL. He
can fire a rocket 20-yards downfield on the run going to his right.
He can really put it on his WR hands 30 to 40 yards downfield.
However, guys with character issues and size issues rarely become
the best they can be in the NFL.
Jeffery Mead- WR, 6-5, 195, SR-
If he has a great post season he could go early on Day Three. The
Pats could snag him in the 4th, like they did with Mitchell. Though
I thought Mitchell was a better prospect than Mead, he just couldn't
stay healthy. Mead has shown he can stay healthy, and is a great
blend of size and Hands.
is so effective using his size to ward off the CB and catch the
ball. Not a lot of speed. He catches most of his passes through
contact. He knows how to use his body and size to shield off the DB.
can make the tough catch through contact. Nice job going up over the
inside shoulder of the CB and snagging the ball. He uses his hands
and feet nicely to beat Press inside. He can use the spin move to
make DBs miss with the ball in his hands. He has great hands. He can
use his size and long arms to catch ball over the CB's head.
Has played in 10 games with four starts ... had a season-long
33-yard reception at Kansas (11/18) ... did not play against TCU
(11/11) or at Oklahoma State (11/4) ... made a 31-yard catch at
Kansas State (10/21) ... tied career high with receptions for 16
yards against Texas (10/14) ... completed a 17-yard pass on first
career pass attempt against Iowa State (10/7) ... made one catch for
six yards against Tulane (9/16) ... caught one pass for 12 yards in
start against UTEP (9/2) ... Academic All-Big 12 Second Team honoree.
31 Okoronkwo, Ogbonnia RS SR, 3rd, OLB-
I love this kid. I don’t think he has the size to go early, but I
love his game. He does a great job using leverage and his arms to
set the edge. He does a good job protecting the backside. Great job
putting speed to power, and can knock the OLT off balance with his
hands, and shed him fast. Elite speed to the QB. When he has a lane
he gets there as fast as anyone. Great quick spin move inside, which
is devastating combing off his outside speed.
*Jordan Thomas- CB 6' 192
He can cover while looking at the QB, and adjust to the bad
throw better than the WR, and intercept it. Terrific agility to run
with the WR while looking back at the QB. Plays a lot of off. Very
tough to beat over the top. He has great size for a CB. Usually
plays on the Weakside. Not always interested in run defense.
Steven Parker- FS 6-1, 204-
Good athlete who doesn't play the ball in the air well. More of a
wait for the runner, than a hitter. He can leap in front of the big
WR and knock the ball down. Doesn't have good hands.

2017: Has played in and started three games ... did not
play at Baylor due to injury (9/23) ... assisted on a tackle at Ohio
*Roquan Smith- MLB- #3-
He never seems to miss a tackle. He controls the middle of the
field, and allows others to do their thing. He is sometimes perfect
on the 2nd level in run defense.
won the Butkus. "Roquan Smith proved to be the overwhelming
favourite in this year’s collegiate linebacking class," the
Butkus committee said in a statement. "He’s always around the
ball and is very tough, fast and instinctive, with exceptional
football reflexes. He makes his presence felt all over the field and
hits with the type of explosion that has come to define the Butkus
Award. As terrific of a football player as he is, Roquan is highly
regarded by teammates, coaches and support staff for his
intelligence, intensity and leadership traits." He garnered 113
Tackles, 10.5 TFL, and 5.5 Sacks.
can be a vicious hitter, and is a great form tackler. "I think
that Roquan is a phenomenal player," Georgia HC Smart said.
"I think if you polled the SEC coaches, they would say he was
probably that way. I haven’t had to game-plan against him or
scheme against him, but he is certainly worthy when it comes to
attitude, effort, leadership, all those qualities." He can
decleate guys from the side.
gets outside on the swing pass so fast that he can meet the RB two
or three yards deep in the backfield. Nice job shoving off blockers
outside and going and getting the ball carrier. Terrific field
speed. Great COD off the shifty back making moves in space. He makes
more impact hits going sideways into the RB than any MLB in this
Lorenzo Carter- DE, 6-6, 242-
Some thought he could be a Day One pick, but that is vastly
overrating him. he could be a nice Day Three surprise for a team
that needs some speed on the edge, like the Pats. If he has a great
post season, he could slip into the end of Day Two.
do not think he is as quick and fast as Bellamy. "Yeah, man,
he's very chippy, very athletic, long guy," his former teammate
Orlando Brown said. "He was a great player then, he's a great
player now." Nice job reaching out and slapping the ball out of
the RB's hands.
job getting outside and forcing the RB inside. He is a real long and
lanky guy. He does a great job using his hands to shove off the
blocker as he changes directions. Terrific speed outside. He can get
outside as fast as a speed back, and not let him even start to turn
the corner. Nice speed and agility to turn outside when the QB
throws it to the little scatback, and tackle him from behind.
Terrific job redirecting to the QB off of trickeration.
If the Pats want to draft some depth on the D-line, he could be a
nice pick up on Day Three.
is really more of a Nose tackle. He is an inside stuffer who can
control the middle of the line and make everybody's job behind him
swim move inside to knock the RB back for a loss. He plays a little
high sometimes, but has nice balance. Plays special team, and
blocked a FG attempt in the SEC Champ game.
Davin Bellamy- OLB Georgia, 6-4, 242-
He is a guy who I think the Pats could find on the Board on Day
Three. If they go offensive heavy early, they may need to take a
chance on a Day Three speed rusher. Bellmyy has play OLB in
Georgia's 3-4, and would be a great fit in the Pats system.
job shoving the OLT's arms back as he turns the corner, and then
keep turning into the QB trying to slide away from him, and he can
punch the ball out as he hits the QB. I like his arc-agility.
Terrific speed an long arms rushing up field. Great strong hands. He
can grab the OG with one hand and pull his way past him. Drops in
coverage a lot. Great protecting the edge as an OLB.
Aaron Davis- S 6-1, 189
Nice job finding the RB right in the middle of the line. Fights
outside nicely on bubble screen. He has the speed and toughness to
play in the NFL. Terrific in run blitz off the edge.
8 tackles (3x) last vs. Tennessee in 2016. *1 interception (4x),
last vs. Louisiana in 2016. *2 fumble recoveries at Auburn in 2015
Appeared in all 13 games, making 11 starts...team's 4th-leading
tackler, with 54 total stops...has 4.0 TFLs and 1.5 QB sacks...one
of six Bulldogs with two interceptions...most recent pick occurred

in Liberty Bowl win vs. TCU...career high-matching eight tackles vs.
Tennessee...also recovered a fumble in the end zone vs. UT for a
Dominick Sanders- S 6', 193, SR-
Terrific attacking the screen outside. He is a terrific tackler in
space. He Plays mainly Cover Two. Flies down hill to hit the RB when
he break though the line fast. He will step up on the edge in short
yardage, and tackle the RB short inside. He can bail off the snap,
read the QBs eyes, and turn back to knock the ball down to the WR
running underneath him. He gets his hands on the ball a lot, but
doesn't bring it in very much. Nice job reaching in, and pulling the
Highs: * 8 tackles at Vanderbilt in 2015. * 2 interceptions (2x)

fumble recovery and a pass breakup vs. Georgia Tech...credited with
three tackles and a fumble recovery in Liberty Bowl win vs. TCU.
Aaron Davis- FS, 6-1, 190, 4.56, 5th-
He plays Safety and Corner. Nice second level hitter. He foes a good
job not letting WRs get behind him, and then moving up and hitting
them when they catch the ball. He really moves up fast from Cobber
Two when he reads run to his side. Smart player who will pick up a
WR running through his zone.
Malkom Parrish- CB, 5-10, 188-
He is a starting CB, who looks like he could an NFL Nickel. He can
be tough on the edge. Vey quick and stays very close to WR in man
coverage. Excellent tackler.
John Atkins- NT, RS SR-
He is a big Day Three Nose Tackle type who is going to have to work
very hard to make a team.
Nick Chubb- RB 5’10” 220
When he is running through tackles and over defenders he looks like
the best RB in the Draft. Nice weaver on inside runs. Great little
hop cuts to make it tough for defenders to take him down.
power runner right up the gut. He was running through tackles by the
end of the season again. He is also a good receiver out of the
backfield. He can hurt CBs outside when he catches it out of the
Sony Michel- RB 5’11” 212
He has finally gotten his great speed and burst back, and has
surpassed Chubb on the depth chart. Great burst through the line. He
can really move when he has a lane. Great cutback runner on Zone
runs. He does a nice job in blitz pick up. Great slasher and cutback
runner. Zone blocking teams could be looking for him on Day Two.
is a terrific special teams player. They ran a fake punt, and he
caught the pass and ran for the 1st and ended up with 31-yards.
Terrific 3rd down back with speed, and the ability to start. Not a
lot of trend on the tires. He regained that flash at the beginning
of the season. Not the best ball skills. He looks faster than Chubb
early in the season. He showed he got his lateral burst back against
Isaiah Wynn- OLT, SR-
I really like Wynn. I think he will be an NFL OLT. He might have to
be in a Zone blocking scheme. He could be an option for he Pats late
on Day Two, or early in Day Three. I think he will show well at the
Combine, and could end up in Day Two, maybe.
job on the seal block on dives up the middle. The OLB doesn't stand
a chance of getting inside. Relentless blocker in run game. Slides
inside on zone runs effortlessly, and with great quickness. He gets
inside the DT seemingly at will.
burst outside on toss sweeps. He is a terrific foot athlete. I think
he can be a starting OLT in a zone-blocking scheme. He does a great
job sliding inside, and grabbing shirt with his arms extended. Great
job impacting and sealing the D-end. Smooth quick-stepping feet
moving backwards. Auburn stopped rushing his lane almost every down
in the 2nd Half.
Javon Wims- WR, 6-4, 215, SR-
Sure hands on short passes. He has some nice hands. He can slow and
turn in the air and make the high wire catch. He can make the one
handed catch, while getting shoved to the ground. He likes to leap
to catch the ball, like he doesn't trust his hands and feet
together. He makes great adjusts to the ball in the air. He has the
speed to run away from the secondary. He could be a Day Three option
for the Pats. He does look 6-4 to me.
Jeb Blazevich- TE, 6-5, 248, 4.73-
Very nice chipper in pass pro. He can really impact the rusher into
the ORT. He is a little light, and can get knocked back into the RB
on the off tackle run behind him. Then he stones the DE who knocked
him back in pass pro. He is so much better in pass pro than in run
game. He might get drafted on Day Three.
