#3 Tyree Jackson- QB 6-7
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.
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
(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.
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
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
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
Foster Moreau- TE 6-6 256 LSU-
Pure blocking tight end who will go in Day Three. Not the best
#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.
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.
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
#72 Ben Powers- OLG 6-4
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.
#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
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.
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
#1 Corey Ballentine- DC
6’, 204 Washburn-
Small school talent looking to stand out this week. Track who has
the speed that teams need.
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
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
#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.
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
#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.
Germaine Pratt- ILB 6-3 240 North Carolina St- He is looking to make a name for himself
#9 Te'Von Coney- ILB 6-1
240 Notre Dame-
Solid Day Two Linebacker. Looking to push himself up into the 2nd
#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
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
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.
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
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
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.
Jake Bailey- PT 6-2 202 Stanford-
#36 Cole Tracy- PK 5-11
#43 Nick Moore- LS 6-3
#3 Drew Lock- QB 6-4 225
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
#17 Daniel Jones- QB 6-5
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.
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.
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.
Andy Isabella- WR 5-10, 195 UMASS-
Little Slot guy I saw play in Gillette against BYU.
#8 Keelan Doss- WR 6-3

#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
#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
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.
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.
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
A little short. Solid Day Three OL.

#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.
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
Underdeveloped guy who has a lot to prove if he wants to go in Day
He has appeared in 34
games in his career, with 16 career starts.
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
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.

rumbling into the end zone vs. Ohio.

in the NFL.

#88 Drew Sample- TE 6-5
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
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
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
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.
Mitch Wishnowsky- PT 6-2 220 Utah-
Austin Seibert- PK 5-9 214 Oklahoma-
#97 Dan Godsil- LS 6-4
#6 Rock Ya-Sin- DC 6-2
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
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
#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
He didn’t stand out when I watched him play. He needs to stand out
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
#21 Juan Thornhill- SS
6’ 210 Virginia-
Surprising guy who could slip into Day Two.

#25 Darius West S 6’
Ne never stood out when I watch Kentucky. He needs to stand out this
#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.
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
#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-
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
#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.
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.
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).
the Louisiana Tech program record with 45.0 career sacks. Totaled 64

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

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

including 3.0 for loss, two pass breakups and one quarterback
hurry…third-team All-ACC…named team’s Most Valuable Defensive

#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 ...
