So thank you Draft fans and Patriot fans alike, and mostly thank you to all the fans of my books and website worldwide.

7 Things for KC: Part IV.

By TOM

SOUTH OFFENSE

#3 Tyree Jackson- QB 6-7 245 Buffalo- Very talent and very inconsistent QB. He has to show consistency, and that he can make the small play that keeps the drive alive, like Brady does over and over again, and not just the big play that makes the fans jump up and cheer. Keep that drive alive.

#7 Will Grier- QB 6-2 223 West Virginia- Terrific arm and talent. Spread QB who relied on the System. He also had a ton of talent around him. I wonder if he can find his 3rd or 4th option consistently.

#8 Jarrett Stidham- QB 6-3 215 Auburn- Hot and cold QB who has to show he can make the small plays that keep drives alive. He can find his third or forth option.

#16 Gardner Minshew II- QB 6-2 220 Washington St- Lot of teams like this guy. He is going to go earlier than he should. Look for him on Day Two. I just like to see something that justifies a Day Two QB.

 

#1 Deebo Samuel- WR, 6, 210 South Carolina- This is my guy. He is tough as nails (and a little crazy;) like WR like Edelman. He is a little bigger and faster than Edelman. But I would love to see him (as would Brady;) in the Pats offense in that role. Pick 32?

#21 David Sills V- WR 6-4 210 West Virginia- Most interesting WR in this Draft. He was the best Redzone threat in college the last two seasons. But where is the production outside the Endzone? He needs to show he make the simple catch the keeps drives alive, and not just the high lob in the endzone.

#11 Tyre Brady- WR 6-3 206 Marshall- (2017): Played in 11 games (all starts) … First-year receiver led the team in receptions (62), receiving yards (942) and was second in receiving touchdowns (eight) … Twice named a game captain (Kent State and Old Dominion) … Earned first team Conference USA all-conference honors … Shared Offensive MVP honors with quarterback Chase Litton … Named the New Mexico Bowl Offensive MVP … First touchdown with the Herd came in the second quarter of the season opener against Miami (Ohio), a 22-yard score from Litton … Breakout performance came in Week 2 against No. 23 North Carolina State … Brady set career highs with 11 receptions and 248 yards against N.C. State.

#12 Gary Jennings- WR 6-2 215 West Virginia- Big slot guy, who the Pats will have to look in the 3rd, maybe? His speed at the Combine is going to decide where he goes.

2018: Started all 13 games at inside receiver. All-Big 12 Honorable Mention (WR). Ranks No. 6 in WVU history in career receiving yards (2,294) and No. 7 in career receptions (168). Fourth on WVU’s single-season receiving TD list with 13. Leads the team with 917 receiving yards. Sits No. 2 in the Big 12 and No. 5 in the country with 13 receiving touchdowns. Ranks No. 7 in the Big 12 in receiving yards per game (83.4) and No. 10 in receptions per game (4.9). Ranks No. 7 in the Big 12 in scoring (7.1). Caught seven passes for a career-high 225 yards and two touchdowns vs. Oklahoma, including a career long 75-yard TD; it was his seventh career 100-yard game.

#13 Hunter Renfrow- WR 5-10 180 Clemson- Another Patriots like slot guy that they won’t take, and everyone will wonder why.

#15 Travis Fulgham- WR 6-3 215 Old Dominion- I’d can’t wait to see this kid play.

2018: Second-Team All-Conference USA ... First-Team Conference USA by Pro Football Focus ... First ODU offensive player invited to the Reese's Senior Bowl ...  Led Conference USA with 1,083 receiving yards on 63 receptions ... Had nine touchdown catches ... Streak of nine-straight games with a touchdown streak longest in FBS in 2018 ... Led C-USA with 17.2 yards per catch.

#83Anthony Johnson- WR 6-2 210 Buffalo- I really like this kid. He plays in the slot a lot, and can get open inside. He looks like a good fit in the Patriots’ system. He got injured this season, and played on bad ankles all season. Might have been the best WR in the nation in 2017.

Hoof Prints: Speedy receiver who is the nation's returning leader in receiving yards... named to the preseason watch lists for the 2018 Maxwell and Biletnikoff Awards... has three cousins in the NFL, including Jadeveon Clowney... major is sociology.

 

#4 Bruce Anderson- RB 5-11 210 North Dakota State- Can’t wait to see him play.

#25 Ryquell Armstead- RB 5-11 215 Temple- Another tough Temple kid who will go lower than he should.

#31 Wes Hills RB 6-2 218 Slippery Rock- 2018 (SENIOR): Named to Associated Press (AP) and D2footbal.com Division II All-America teams … rushed for SRU single-season record 1,714 yards in 11 complete games … missed two full games and all but two snaps of a third game from weeks 2-4 … took limited snaps to test the injury in week five before returning to starting lineup in week six … rushed for 1,476 yards over the final nine weeks of the season after returning to starting lineup (164 yards per game), including six games with more than 150 yards and three games with more than 200 yards ... topped 150 yards in all three NCAA playoff games, including 188 yards in less than three quarters in round two win over New Haven ... broke SRU single-season record with 1,714 yards to rank third in Division II in total rushing yards ... averaged 7.0 yards per carry to rank second in Division II among all players with at least 200 carries.

#88 Trevon Wesco- TE/FB 6-4 274 West Virginia- Terrific in pass pro. He can line up and block like an ORT in pass pro. He can spin in the air and catch the ball thrown behind him. He has some speed in the open field. They like to swing the ball out to him as he runs outside down the line. He does a good job turning and running with the ball in his hands. Lines up at H-back a lot. He can get some push in run game. He will line up off set like a FB in the backfield, but he looks like a TE. Very interesting Day Three Prospect, who has a shot to play for  long time.

 

#18 Foster Moreau- TE 6-6 256 LSU- Pure blocking tight end who will go in Day Three. Not the best hands.

#87 Dax Raymond- TE 6-5 250 Utah State- H-Back who can get down the seam and catch the deep ball high over his head. Great size, and is a good blocker as well. Nice job in release off the line. He can get past the LBs fast, going down the seam. Natural hands, and the QB throws it to him high a lot, and that is when he is at his best. No trouble running past the Safety against BYU for the 32-yard TD. Runs routes with nice deception.

UTAH STATE: A dynamic and athletic tight end who runs great routes and has great hands... Is a tenacious blocker who plays with an edge... Possesses good size, speed and athletic ability and is a one-on-one mismatch for most defenders.

#89 Josh Oliver- TE 6-5 250 San Jose St-

AT SAN JOSÉ STATE: Completed four seasons with the Spartans... A versatile tight end who gave the Spartans a big, long target on pass plays and is a capable blocker... 49 games played and 36 starts... Only the fourth tight end in school history with 1,000 or more career receiving yards... Signed a National Letter-of-Intent in February 2015... Three-time Academic All-Mountain West award winner... 2017 Arthur Ashe, Jr. Sports Scholar... Concluded his college career accepting an invitation to play in the 2019 Senior Bowl.

2018: First-team All-Mountain West... Team co-captain... Had one of the best seasons by a tight end in university history and in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS)... Third nationally among FBS tight ends and the team leader with 56 receptions... 38 of his 56 receptions resulted in a first down... Single-season personal bests of 56 catches, 709 receiving yards and four TDs... 709 receiving yards was fifth nationally among FBS tight ends... Second on the team in receiving yards and tied for second in TD receptions.

 

#58 Tytus Howard- ORT 6-6 311 Alabama St- Terrific run blocker, and also nimble moving backwards. He is a huge guy. Played well against Auburn. Keeps his hands low and inside. Then grabs shirt as the edge guy tries to take his outside shoulder. I’d like to see more punch. Great job grabbing D-end and turning him and not letting go until the whistle. Turns run game into fights. Nice hop inside to take away the DE on inside runs. Great quick steps against speed in pass pro. He can cut off the speed rushers in kickslide back and meet him at the pass. Great size, strength, and balance.

#60 Andre Dillard- OT 6-5 306 Washington St- Back pedals instead of Kick-slides too much. Needs work on NFL technique. Smooth sliding sideways inside. Nice athlete and balance. He looks little small, and is a finesse blocker. Which is not a bad thing in pass pro. Lines up in 2-point stance most of the time (all of the time?), which again needs work on NFL techniques. Great quicks and hands switching on stunts. Nice base and solid power in pass pro. He has some heaviness in his hands. Knows how to use his arms, and has the agility to turn and bail against the pure speed rusher, and carry him past the QB.

#70 Javon Patterson- OLG 6-3 314 Ole Miss- Steady feet and balance. Plays well with arms extended. When he maintains position and balance he is great. Plays well with bent knees. Solid in pass pro. Keeps arms extended and feet moving. Moves forward off snap, and gets hands in shirt quick. Good job pulling right, and can hit a moving target. They don’t run a lot at Miss ST. He can shove DT off to OC, and pick up the smaller faster blitzer with some power. I really like this kid. He is an NFL OLG.

#71 Ross Pierschbacher- OC 6-4 309 Alabama- He is a plug and play OC. Just a beast inside. Alabama ran behind him when they needed it. Pro Bowl potential.

2018: An established presence along the Tide offensive front ... transitioned to starting at center for Alabama this season (14 games) after making 42 career starts at left guard in his first three years at UA (56 career starts) ... blocked for 31 100-yard rushers across his standout career at the Capstone ... named a first team All-American by The Sporting News  ... tabbed as a second team All-American by the Associated Press ... also earned second team All-America recognition from Sports Illustrated ... selected to the All-SEC first team by the Associated Press and the league’s second team by the conference coaches.

#72 Ben Powers- OLG 6-4 313 Oklahoma- He can get popped back by explosive power, but has good balance and can hold on as he get hit repeatedly backwards. He is another beast at OLG. All-Pro potential.

2018: A consensus All-American at offensive guard ... named a first-team All-American by the AFCA, FWAA, Sporting News and Walter Camp Foundation ... Outland Trophy semifinalist ... a first-team All-Big 12 selection by league coaches and the AP ... an Academic All-Big 12 First Team selection ... member of an OU offensive line unit that won the Joe Moore Award ... started all 13 of his games at left guard ... did not give up a sack ... missed Baylor contest (9/29) due to injury.

#73Oli UdohOT6-5356 Elon-

#74 Elgton Jenkins- OC 6-4 310 Mississippi St- One of my favorites. Best OC in the Draft. Might be more of a Zone blocker. He will get beat by power sometimes, but he was playing injured most of the season.

CAREER: The No. 1 center prospect for the 2019 NFL Draft, according to ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr., who is also versatile enough to play every position on the line … Transitioned into the starting center role in 2017 preseason camp and shined as a junior … Played in 49 career games with 34 starts – 26 at center, five at left tackle, two at left guard and one at right tackle … Allowed only one sack over 762 pass-blocking snaps at center during his junior and senior seasons, per Pro Football Focus … Two-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll … Graduated from MSU in December 2018 with a degree in industrial technology.

#75 Dru Samia- ORG 6-5 303 Oklahoma- Very underrated. I love this kid. If I could get Jenkins and Samia in the 3rd Round I would do a little dance of joy. Got bigger and stronger every year. OK’s best OL last season. Brought the nasty to the OK O-line.

2018: Named a second-team All-American by the AFCA and AP ... named Tri-Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year by league’s coaches ... Polynesian Player of the Year finalist ... a first-team All-Big 12 selection by league’s coaches and the AP ... member of an OU offensive line unit that won Joe Moore Award ... an Academic All-Big 12 Second Team selection ... one of two players to receive team's Don Key award ... started all 14 games at right guard ... did not give up a sack.

#78 Dennis Daley OLT 6-6 324 South Carolina- I like this guy, but I’m not sure he is an NFL OLT. He should be a good developmental Tackle in the 3rd or 4th. If a team thinks he can develop into an OLT, and I do (I think;), he could slide into the 3rd. JuCo kid who spent two years at Georgia Military College.

Overview: Big offensive lineman who transferred in from Georgia Military College and quickly earned his way into a starting role at left tackle last fall... has made significant progress since his arrival on campus... poised to have an excellent senior season protecting the quarterback’s back side.

#79 B.J. Autry- OLG 6-5 340 Jacksonville St- Huge OLG. Plays a little high. He will go in Day Three. He can get over aggressive in run game, but can recover and hold DT outside. Good balance and quicks. Lunges sometimes, but plays well with arms extended. When he gets both hands on a DL, he can control him: toss him aside, and drive him up and back. He manhandled the lower level of competition.  

NORTH DEFENSE

#1 Corey Ballentine- DC 6’, 204 Washburn- Small school talent looking to stand out this week. Track who has the speed that teams need.

At Washburn: Has appeared in 35 games making 18 starts recording 136 career tackles with 85 solo stops and seven tackles for loss … a five-time member of the MIAA Academic Honor Roll between football and track and field … career kickoff return average of 30.57 is first all-time on the Ichabod career chart entering his senior season.

#2 Kris Boyd- DC 6-0 195 Texas- Big Corner who was impressive at Texas.

#11 Jordan Brown- DC 6-1 195 South Dakota St- Senior Bowl likes to bring the small school guys and give them a shot.

#21 Amani Oruwariye- DC 6-1 201 Penn St- Big Corner from Penn ST trying to get into Day Two.

#24 Iman Marshall- DC 6-1 205 USC- Star high school kid with great cover instincts, but he lacks ball skills. When he plays the ball in the air he looks like a 1st. When he doesn’t, he looks like a burst. He is a first round physical talent, who plays corner because he can’t track the ball.

 

#4 Darnell Savage- S 5-11 200 Maryland- Tough to see him as more than a Day Three Pick. Senior (2018): Started all 12 games at safety ... ranked second in the Big Ten, trailing only teammate Tre Watson and 13th in the country with four interceptions ... Fourth on team with 52 tackles (38) solo and second on the team with 5.5 tackles for loss ... Had season best nine tackles vs. Ohio State (11/17).

#8 Will Harris- S 6-2, 210 Boston College- He’s got some game. He could slide into the back of Day Two with a great Senior Bowl.

#13 Marquise Blair- S 6-2 195 Utah- Solid Day Three guy looking to move up into Day Two.

#23 Nasir Adderley- S 6’ 200 Delaware- Small school athlete looking to make a name for himself, and slip into Day Three.

#27 Khari Willis- S 6’, 215 Michigan St- Solid Day Three Safety.

 

 

#3 Germaine Pratt- ILB 6-3 240 North Carolina St- He is looking to make a name for himself in Mobile.

#9 Te'Von Coney- ILB 6-1 240 Notre Dame- Solid Day Two Linebacker. Looking to push himself up into the 2nd Round.

#35 Cameron Smith- ILB 6-2 250 USC- Solid Day Three ILB. He could show some special teams plays to help him move up.

#36 Dre Greenlaw- OLB 6’, 229 Arkansas- Watch the Arkansas players in this Draft. The Pats will have an inside scoop on these kids. They were recruited by BB’s new handyman, and they had good luck with Wise.

#42 Drue Tranquill- OLB 6-2 233 ND- Solid Day Two LB. He is not going to move up much here, but he could move into the early 2nd if he takes over down in Mobile.

#15 Sutton Smith OLB 6-1 237 Northern Illinois- 2018 (through 11-7-18): National rankings include seventh in sacks, 15th in tackles for loss, fourth in fumbles and third in blocked kicks. Versus Toledo, blocked his second punt of the season, recovered and returned it 27 yards for a TD to give NIU a 17-9 lead before half. Also forced a fumble, broke up a pass, recorded his ninth sack and 15th TFL. Tied for third all-time at NIU in career sacks and is fourth in tackles for loss. Has at least one TFL in 12 of NIU’s last 14 games dating to 2017.

#52 Ben Banogu- OLB 6-4 249 TCU- Undersized edge guy who has to show that knack for hitting the quarterback. He produced at TCU, but didn’t look like more of a Day Three guy to me. He could make a lot of money with a few Sacks this week.

 

#44 Zach Allen- DE 6-5 285 BC- He is the best player down in Mobile. He will go the highest of all the non-QBs at the Senior Bowl. Great freak athlete with that knack for hitting the quarterback. Amazing size, balance and agility that will make him stand out this week.

#5 John Cominsky- DE, 6-5, 275 Charleston- Looking forward to seeing him play.

#90 Charles OmenihuDE6-6275 Texas- Lot of football geeks like this kid (including me;). He has that knack for hitting the quarterback from the 5-Tech. He will probably pump up and play DT.

#91 L.J. Collier- DE 6-4 276 TCU- Highly thought of D-end, but he disappointing when I watched. I probably saw his three worst games. He’ll go on Day Three, and be released if what I saw was his consistent play.

#92 Byron Cowart- DE 6-4 293 Maryland- As a Senior (2018): Started all 12 games on the defensive line ... totaled 38 tackles (18 solo) on the season to go with five tackles for loss and two interceptions ... recorded second interception of the season vs. Michigan State (11/3) ... tallied a tackle for loss vs. Illinois (10/27) ... totaled a career-best seven tackles at #19 Iowa (10/20) ... had a career day against Rutgers (10/13), posting an interception and 2.0 tackles for loss, including a sack ... notched three tackles, a sack and a forced fumble vs. Minnesota (9/22) ... posted five tackles against Temple (9/15) ... had four tackles, including a sack, at Bowling Green (9/8) ... made Terrapin debut starting at defensive end against #23 Texas (9/1), making two tackles.

#93 Anthony Nelson- DE 6-7 271 Iowa- Big 5-Tech looking dude who played Base-End. He will play in the NFL. Likely a Day Three pick who plays for a long time in the NFL. If can show his knack for hitting the quarterback he could go Day Two. Two straight seasons of 8.5 Sacks got him to mobile, but I need to see more to get him out of Day Three.

 

 

#14 Jake Bailey- PT 6-2 202 Stanford-

#36 Cole Tracy- PK 5-11 188 LSU-

#43 Nick Moore- LS 6-3 250 Georgia-

 

NORTH OFFENSE

#3 Drew Lock- QB 6-4 225 Missouri- He struggle against top comp and has to show big here to stay in the 2nd. Struggled to find third and forth options as a senior. HE needs to show he can hit more than his first or second option, and go all the way through his progressions.

#9 Trace McSorley- QB 6’, 203 Penn St- He was disappointing this year. He has to show great here in Alabama. He could slide into Day Two with a great Senior Bowl, for a team looking for a Mayfield-type QB.

#15 Ryan Finley- QB 6-4 212 North Carolina St- Solid Day Two QB looking to move up into 1st. 32? He has the pocket QB talents that usually attracts the Pats. He could be fighting for the Pats starting QB job against Etling if he can show some clutch at Senior Bowl. The Pats will be looking for a QB in Mobile this week.

#17 Daniel Jones- QB 6-5 220 Duke- Another big QB who would look very good at 32. He was inconsistent at Duke, but he is smart and was great in Bowl game. He has the arm and toughness. He just has to learn to play it a little faster, and show some clutch down here in Mobile. That have to give him an end of quarter two-minute drive this week He could be a Patriot when all is said and done.

 

 

#1 Tony Pollard- RB 6’ 208 Memphis-

#2 Dexter Williams- RB 5-11, 215 ND- He will play in the NFL. He has the speed and toughness to go along with good size. He has some character concerns, and will be a steal on Day Three.  

#22 Karan Higdon- RB 5-10 202 Michigan- Solid Day Three RB who could play for a long time in the NFL. I would take a chance on him in the 4th.

 

 

#5 Andy Isabella- WR 5-10, 195 UMASS- Little Slot guy I saw play in Gillette against BYU.

#8 Keelan Doss- WR 6-3 206 UC Davis- 2018: WALTER PAYTON AWARD WATCH LIST (nominated for the second straight season)... COLLEGE FOOTBALL PERFORMANCE AWARDS FCS NATIONAL PERFORMER OF THE YEAR WATCH LIST... PHIL STEELE 2018 PRESEASON ALL-AMERICAN... PHIL STEELE FIRST TEAM PRESEASON ALL-BIG SKY TEAM... HERO SPORTS PRESEASON ALL-AMERICAN... STATS FCS PRESEASON ALL-AMERICAN... STREET & SMITH’S PRESEASON ALL-AMERICAN... BIG SKY PRESEASON OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR... PRESEASON ALL-BIG SKY TEAM... One of the Aggies’ three team captains.

#10 Terry McLaurin- WR 6-1 205 Ohio St- Tough when you’re an Ohio State player whose name I don’t recognize off the top of my head. Trying to slide into the Day Three.

#11 Jakobi Meyers- WR 6-2 203 North Carolina St- Small school WR with some nice size, trying to slide into Day Three. But unless he blows up with some speed at the Combine he is a Day Three guy.

#12 Jaylen Smith- WR 6-4 220 Louisville- Big WR with hands like glue. The question is can he get open against NFL Corners. He really looks the part, and catches everything thrown to him. Solid Day Two WR, depending on speed.

#18 Penny Hart- WR 5-8 180 Georgia St- Terrific WR, but damn he’s small.

 

#45 Alec Ingold- FB 6-2 242 Wisconsin-

#49 Donald Parham- TE 6-8 240 Stetson- Looks like a basketball player at 6-8, 240. Can he block at all? Great small school receiving threat. If he can show he block he could go Day Two.

Senior (2018): A consensus All-American who earned first team recognition … Finished the season as the top receiving tight end in all of college football, leading Division I (FBS and FCS) in both receptions per game (9.4) and receiving yards per game (146.6) … Opened eyes in the second game of the 2018 season with five receptions for 165 yards and three touchdowns in a victory over Point (9/8), making him the first tight end in the nation with a three TD game in 2018.

#58 Kaleb McGary- ORT 6-8 324 Washington- He could make some money if he could show he could play on the Blindside. However, he looks like an ORT only to me.

#63 Michael Deiter- OG 6-6 310 Wisconsin- Of all the guys on Wisconsin’s overrated O-line I though he was the best. Solid Day Two guy, who could go in Day One. Plug and play OG for ten or 15 years.

#64 Nate Davis- OG 6-3 311 Charlotte- A little short. Solid Day Three OL.

 At Charlotte: 2018 Second Team all-C-USA by league’s coaches ... four-year starter made 37 career starts over 40-game career ... Named 2018 first team all-C-USA by Phil Steele Publications ... 2018 Preseason all-Conference Second Team (Athlon’s) ... named 49ers’ Best Offensive Player for 2018 by SB Nation ... 2016 and 2017 Honorable Mention all-C-USA by league's coaches  ... 2017 Preseason 2nd-team all-Conference USA (Athlon Sports) ... A member of the 49ers third recruiting class, signed in February, 2014. 2018: 2018 Second Team all-C-USA by league’s coaches ... Named 2018 first team all-C-USA by Phil Steele Publications ... 2018 Preseason all-Conference Second Team (Athlon’s) ... named 49ers’ Best Offensive Player for 2018 by SB Nation ... started 7 of 8 games played ... helped 49ers to three 200+ rushing games vs. C-USA: season-high 289 at FAU; 281 vs. FIU and 211 vs. WKU ... O-line for league’s 5th-best rushing attack (159.9) ...  helped RB Benny LeMay to 1,000-yard season (1228), 2nd in C-USA.

#65 Garrett Bradbury- OC 6-3 300 North Carolina St- Solid, smart, tough interior Day Three OC. Not sure he can prove more this week.  

#66 Beau Benzschawel- ORG 6-6 315 Wisconsin- Might be top OL down here. He is a solid 2nd Round pick, and could go higher if team is desperate for an interior OL. Plug and play OG for 10 to 15 years in the NFL.

#70 Chuma Edoga- OT 6-4 295 USC- Underdeveloped guy who has a lot to prove if he wants to go in Day Two.

CAREER:  He has appeared in 34 games in his career, with 16 career starts.

2018:  Edoga returns for his second year as a starting offensive tackle as a senior in 2018.

#71 Dalton Risner- OT 6-5 308 Kansas St- If they don’t play him at OLT this week it will be a crime against his potential. He was a great ORT at Kansas St. He can play inside at OG. The only question is can he protect the Blindside. I think he can, but he has to prove it. If he proves it this week, he is a lock 1st. Otherwise Solid 2nd.

#73 Max Scharping- OT 6-6 320 Northern Illinois- Solid OT who has to prove he can step up to the competition at the Senior Bowl. He could slip into Day Two if he shows he can stay on the Blindside this week. He is a freak athlete.

2018: Has started 49 consecutive games, every game of his career, and played every offensive snap (3,185 plays) in 2018.

Named a finalist for the William Campbell Trophy and a semifinalist for the Wuerffel Trophy. Scored on a two-point conversion by taking a lateral pass and rumbling into the end zone vs. Ohio.

#75 Chris Lindstrom- OLG 6-4 310 BC- Best BC OL, on a great O-line. Plug and play OLG for 10 to 15 years in the NFL.

2018 (SENIOR): All-ACC First Team... New England Football Writers All-New England Team... ACC Preseason Team... Athlon Sports Preseason All-American... Outland Trophy Watch List... moved to right guard for the season opener vs. UMass (9/1/18) and was on the field for 65 snaps.

#78 Erik McCoy- OC 6-4 315 Texas A&M- Another plug and play OL who will step in and start for 10 to 15 years.

#81 Alex Wesley- WR, 6’ 184 Northern Colorado- 2018: Played in 10 of the team’s 11 games, starting in all 10 he played in…Became the second player in program history with two 1,000 yards receiving seasons finishing with 1,050…Led team with 57 receptions and tied for team lead with four touchdowns…Had six 100 yards receiving games…He finished eighth in the FCS and second in the Big Sky averaging 105.0 yards per game…Ranked 25th in the FCS and third in the Big Sky with 5.7 receptions a game… Named second team All-Big Sky, First Team Phil Steele All-Big Sky, Invited to Reese’s Senior Bowl and NFL Combine.

#88 Drew Sample- TE 6-5 251 Washington- Pure blocking tight end, who catches everything thrown to him. He has to show speed in pattern to get into Day Two.

89 Tommy Sweeney- TE 6-5 260 BC- He can block as well as any TE down here, and has great hands that catch everything thrown to him. His question is does he have the speed and knack for getting open consistently. Pats have two Compensatory picks in the 3rd. He would be a perfect fit.

#95 Renell Wren- DT 6-6 297 Arizona St- Nose Tackle in the Chris Jones-mode. Not as explosive, but he has that knack for making plays in the backfield.

#97 Jalen Jelks- DE 6-6 245 Oregon- Wiry 3-4 OLB. A 3-4 team could take a chance on him in the 2nd. Solid player, but didn’t produce the stats expected. He has to produce some stats this week to go in Day Two.

Career: Finished with 29.5 TFLs and 15 sacks. Registered 10.5 of 15 career sacks in Pac-12 play. Had 22.5 tackles for loss over his last two seasons (25 games). Had at least a half-tackle for loss in 12 of 17 Pac-12 games in 2017 and 2018. Tallied 22.5 of his 29.5 career tackles for loss against Pac-12 foes.

#98 Greg Gaines- DT 6-2 316 Washington- Big Nose Tackle looking dude. He has to prove he can be more to slip into the end of Day Two. Not likely.

#99 Khalen Saunders- DT 6-2 310 Western Illinois- Small school dominator who needs to show he can step up. Gets low and keeps his position against the run. Nice burst to the ball. Knows how to use his hands. Freak athlete. He played some D-end. He could get into the 2nd with a dominate week. Terrific stack and shed DL with some attitude. He played every position on the D-line.

#43 Austin Seibert- PK 5-9 214 Oklahoma-

#97 Dan Godsil- LS 6-4 233 Indiana-

SOUTH DEFENSE

#6 Rock Ya-Sin- DC 6-2 190 Temple- Underrated Corner who is tough with good instincts. I would take a chance on him at the end of Day Two, but the Pats don’t need a Corner. He looks like an NFL CB to me. But he will have to show the speed at the Combine. This guy is the real deal .He is tough as nails, and would bring up the level of any secondary he plays in.

#1 Lonnie Johnson Jr.DC6-3206 Kentucky- Big Corner who doesn’t look 6-3 to me. But he causes a lot of problem in coverage. There are a LOT of big 6-foot-plus Corners in this Draft. More than I have ever seen. He has to prove he can sink and cover the small guys.

#14 Isaiah Johnson- DC, 6-4, 203 Houston- Another giant Friggin’ Corner. It is all about the feet for him. Can he show the great quick feet to stay at CB in the Senior Bowl Drills.

#22 Sheldrick Redwine- CB 6-11 95 Miami- Day Three Corner who could make a lot of money here and at the Combine. He has to show great feet this week, and speed at the Combine to get into Day Two.

#26 Mark Fields- CB 5-11 180 Clemson- He didn’t stand out when I watched him play. He needs to stand out this week.

 

#4 Jaquan Johnson- SS 5-11 195 Miami- He did not have a good Senior Season, but I like him. He has lot to prove to get back into Day Two. Better start playing special teams now to make a team as a Day Three DB. I’d take him in the 4th or 5th.

#21 Juan Thornhill- SS 6’ 210 Virginia- Surprising guy who could slip into Day Two.

 2018: College Football News All-America (HM) ... All-ACC (1st) ... Associated Press All-ACC (1st) ... Associated Press All-Bowl Game ... Pro Football Focus All-ACC (2nd) ... Athlon Sports All-ACC (2nd) ... Senior Bowl Invitee ... Nagurski Trophy Watch List ... Bednarik Award Watch List ... Athlon Sports preseason All-ACC second-team. 2017 - All-ACC (3rd).

#25 Darius West S 6’ 210 Kentucky- Ne never stood out when I watch Kentucky. He needs to stand out this week.

#32 Mike Edwards- SS 6’ 200 Kentucky- Terrific Strong Safety, who showed he could play the ball in the air this season. 4 INTs and 7 PBUs were interesting numbers for him.

 

#38 Johnathan Abram- SS/Will 6’ 215 Mississippi St- He is a freak. But I think he needs a team that will play him up on the line. When he is playing like an OLB, even rushing, he dominates. But he can also turn and run with the TE or RB. Having him 20-yards off the LOS is a waste of talent.

#40 Gerri Green- OLB 6-4255 Mississippi St-

#42 Otaro Alaka- ILB 6-3 240 Texas A&M-

#11 David Long Jr- ILB 5-11 221 West Virginia- Special teams guy trying to prove he can play linebacker in the NFL.

#2 Terrill Hanks- OLB, 6-2 230 New Mexico St- Tackling machine who has to show a lot more to get picked in Day Two.

#20 Bobby Okereke- ILB 6-3 234 Stanford- Great speed in coverage. He can run with the TE down field, and knock the ball out when it arrives. Aware player who can see the strip, and go and get the fumble.

#57 Deshaun Davis- ILB 5-11 246 Auburn-

 

 

 

#9 Montez Sweat DE 6-6 245 Mississippi State- Best player on South team. He should be the highest picked guy from this team (non-QB of course;). Great bend and burst. Knows how to play D-End. Great Rip around the ORT. Great lateral burst in rush. Great hands to punch, slap, and knock the ORT’s hands off his shirt. Loves the Rip. Takes the run seriously, and can close from behind.

#91 Carl Granderson- DE 6-5 261 Wyoming- Exciting small school edge guy who has to prove he belongs. Need to see some stats for him, and not just the rush, to prove he is more than a good story.  Doesn’t seem to have that knack for hitting the quarterback.

#7 Oshane Ximines- DE 6-4 255 Old Dominion- Long armed thin edge guy.

He can get inside and force the RB to bounce it out. Sets the edge like a 3-4 OLB. Nice athlete. I question his instincts. Beat the OT off the snap almost every time. When he uses his hands he finds the ball better. Looks too much. Bursts into the backfield, and then slows too consistently to look to find the ball. Needs to close his eyes and burst to the QB.

#13 Jonathan Ledbetter- DE 6-4 280 Georgia- I kept wanting more. Needs to make plays. I thought he was Day Three guy at best , but he could be a Day Two guy. He has made a lot of money this off season already. He should go higher than I have him rated. Needs some consistency.

#45 Jaylon Ferguson- DE 6-5 262 Louisiana Tech- I cannot wait to see him play. He plays with great power and explosion. Power edge rusher. Great hands. He is the best puncher in the rush in this Draft. He has the speed to get outside on the Toss. He finds the QB in the backfield. He has that knack. Love his hands. Nice speed to power to get under the OT and hit the QB.

REDSHIRT SENIOR (2018): Started every game for the Bulldogs at defensive end while leading the nation in sacks with a school and C-USA record 17.5 on the season, earning him C-USA Defensive Player of the Year honors and four separate All-America accolades. Broke the all-time NCAA record for career sacks with 45.0 over the course of his Bulldog career, passing Terrell Suggs’ previous record of 44.0 with 2.5 sacks recorded in his final collegiate game in LA Tech’s win over Hawaii in the 2018 SoFi Hawaii Bowl (12/22).

Broke the Louisiana Tech program record with 45.0 career sacks. Totaled 64 tackles (37 solo, 27 assisted), a team-high 26.0 tackles for loss, 17.5 sacks, 9 QB hurries, 4 pass breakups, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

#8 Kingsley Keke- DT 6-4 305 Texas A&M- Good not great college DT. Day Three guy.

2018 (SENIOR): Started all 12 games and was second on the team with 6.0 sacks and TFL with 10.0 … third on the team with four QB hurries.

#49 Isaiah Buggs- DT 6-2 286 Alabama- If I were going to take an Alabama DL I would probably take Buggs. He is a Day Two DL with some interesting upside. He played on the Blindside, and showed he could hit the QB and stuff the run. He will be a bargain in the 3rd or 4th, and the Pats have three 3rds.

#34 Daylon Mack- DT 6-1 320 Texas A&M- Looking to overcome a disappointing Senior Season. 2018 (SENIOR): Started all 12 games, recording 29 total tackles … was third on the team with 5.5 sacks totaling 35 yards and TFL with 9.5 … Blocked a field goal against ULM … compiled two tackles for a loss, a sack and a quarterback hurry against Arkansas … recorded three solo tackles, a quarterback hurry and a sack against No. 13 Kentucky … registered five tackles, two tackles for a loss and a sack for an 11-yard loss against Ole Miss … sacked the quarterback twice against No. 8 LSU … given the Most Improved Defensive Lineman Award at the team’s annual banquet.

#90 Demarcus Christmas- DT 6-4 305 Florida St- Tough Nose Tackle type who has some rush in him. Solid Day Two D-Tackle.

2018: Started all 11 games in which he appeared…recorded 28 tackles, including 3.0 for loss, two pass breakups and one quarterback hurry…third-team All-ACC…named team’s Most Valuable Defensive Lineman…registered career-high seven tackles and added one quarterback hurry vs. No. 2 Clemson…recorded career-high 1.5 tackles for loss as part of five-tackle game at No. 17 Miami…opened season with two tackles vs. No. 20 Virginia Tech…had three stops at Syracuse…made 0.5 tackle for loss in 28-24 victory at Louisville…recorded one tackle and one pass breakup in 38-17 win vs. Wake Forest…made one tackle at North Carolina State…registered two solo tackles and one pass breakup at No. 3 Notre Dame…made four tackles in 22-21 victory vs. No. 22 Boston College…ended season with two tackles, 1.0 for loss, vs. No. 13 Florida.

#95 Dontavius Russell- DT 6-3 320 Auburn- Big athletic game changer who didn’t dominate as much as expected. But he should still be a 1st. Could be a great pick in the 2nd. 2018: Started every game ... invited to Reese’s Senior Bowl ... recorded three tackles, a sack, two TFL against Washington ... 1.5 TFL vs. Alabama State ... five tackles at Mississippi State ... three stops at Georgia ... preseason: Bednarik Award, Senior Bowl watch lists ... all-SEC: 2nd team (AL.com, Lindy’s), 3rd (SEC media/coaches).
