2013 Player Ratings

This Draft is coming fast. I lost January do to The Pats. I feel so far behind I'm not sure I can catch up. I still have like seven Bowl Games on the DVR. However, it's draft season, so obsessive behavior is expected.  

Updated 3/26.

Star Lotulelei- 6-3, 311, 38 Reps, (U 5.31), 4.65 SS, 7.76 3-C, 30"V, 

DT

Texas A&M 

There hasn't been as physically strong a DT prospect since Suh.

9.8X

2

Lane Johnson- 6-6, 304,  

OLT

Oklahoma

He looks like a dancer moving backwards. He does a nice job keeping his arms up. He still has some surprising upside, because he is so new to the position.  

9.8

3

*Dee Milliner- 5-11 7/8, 201, (U 4.41), 10'2" B, 36" V, 4.32 SS, 6.95 3-C,   

CB

Alabama 

I know, big surprise that I take the Alabama CB first. You have to have a CB in the Top Ten, right? This could be the first year I've seen where no CB or QB goes in the top ten. Before I see the speed, I'll take Milliner over all the other CBs. 

His Forty time just made him a top five pick. He has everything you want in a CB, except his speed was a mystery. Not any more! Best feet at Combine in pedal. Didn't turn in transition as well as I thought. Got off balance a little in transition. I really like his hips when he turns and runs. 

9.7

4

*Sharrif Floyd- 6-3, 303, (U 4.87), 30", 8'10", 4.75 SS, 7.4 3-C, 

DT

Florida

Every time I watched him this season he looked like a first round D-Tackle to me. 

9.7

5

Eric Fisher- 6-7, 305,

OLT

C. Michigan

He made a lot of money at the Senior Bowl, and they haven't even played the game yet. He has everything you in an OLT. He is small school OLT, who will play OLT in the NFL for a long time. I only had to see him play once to see that. He jumps off the film at you. 

9.7

6

Dion Jordan-  6-6, 245,     

OLB

Oregon 

Super athletic freak who is amazingly versatile. He doesn't have the Sack totals he should, because he dropped into coverage as much as he rushed. He is the type of OLB that BB likes. He wants guys who can cover and rush, unlike me (I just want guys who can hit the quarterback;-). 

9.7

7

*Luke Joeckel- 6-6, 310, 

OLT

Texas A&M

No O-Linemen looks as good as this kid in pass protection. Struggle run blocking sometimes, but as a pass protector he is second to none. 

9.7

8

Ezekiel Ansah-6-5, 271, 35" Arms, S-1.56! 21 R, 34.5", 9'10", 4.26 SS, 7.11 

DE/OLB/PR

BYU

Potential-potential-potential. In three years he could be the best of the bunch of Passrushers in this Draft. With only one real year of starting experience. He will go higher than people think. As some coaches will see his undeveloped clay as the greatest craft project of his life.  

9.7

9

Margus Hunt-6-8, 280, 4.6 (O)! 33 3/4" A! 38 Reps! 7.07! 10'1"! 34.5" 4.51, 

5-Tech DE

SMU

I'm not crazy here. If all the players ahead of Hunt here are gone, And I have the 9th Pick, I take Hunt here. Who else is going to help the Pats or a 3-4 team here, more than Hunt. 

Okay, for all you wimpies out there afraid to commit, I’ll say it, “Hunt was made to be 5-Technique in the NFL.” His size, long arms, strength, and speed give him such exciting promise. When promise meets production you have to take notice. His play in SMU's Bowl Game was a fusion of his great promise with astonishing production. Amazingly light on his feet. His combine performance once one of the best ever.

9.7

10

Geno Smith- 6-5, 230, 

QB

WVU

I was all set to make him Number One. However, his inability to step up in Bowl Games worries me intensely. QBs have to step up in Bowl games, not down. I just have no idea how good or how bad he can be. My problem with him is that when things are going well there is absolutely no better QB in this Draft. However, when things are not going his way he tends to shut down. Like in his last Bowl Game the condition were wretched, and his stats were worse. However, he had three 50-yard passes (for at least two TDs) wiped out by the refs. If those plays had counted in could have been a blow out in the other direction. But then, because things weren't going his way, he seem to start pouting and looked afraid to throw the ball. Now whether it was the weather or the bad luck, or of course the combination of both, you can't have a QB who appears to be pouting in a game. I was all set to make him the obvious Number One Pick, but that pouting scared the crap out of me. 

9.7

11

*Jarvis Jones- 6-3, 240, 4.9! 

OLB/PR

Georgia

Easily the top rated player in this years Draft. However, a serious neck injury that forced him out of USC makes his place in this Draft troubling at best. However, I never thought I would see an OLB who can blitz like my-man Von Miller, and here he is. 

9.8X

12

*Barkevious Mingo- 6-4, 241, (U 4.53)! 33.75" Arms, 37" Vert, 10'8"!

OLB

LSU

Another interesting passrusher. Mingo might have the best blast off the line in this Draft. However, he is still more promise than production. I thought is was odd that he was with the D-Ends at the Combine. He is a 3-4 OLB waiting to happen. 4-3 Teams had better beware if they think they are going to stick him in at D-End. He needs to be out in space and on the edge, where his all world athleticism can come out. Although I do question his instincts a little. He is a pure flash and dash. He has not learned how to hit the QB yet. Finesse player. 

9.6

13

*Xavier Rhodes- 6-1, 217, (U 4.41), 40.5" Vert! 11' Broad! 14 Reps, 

CB/FS

FLA ST 

Giant CB who might be to big to play CB. He could make a phenomenal Safety. 

9.6

14

*Eric Reid- 6-2, 212, 4.5! 

LSU

I have to go with what I see here, rather than the trend. Reid is a better Safety prospect than Vaccaro. He is bigger, faster, has more range deep, plays the ball better in the air, and plays in the SEC.

I might be prejudice, but in the first of Alabama and LSU's great battles in 2011, he was the best player on the field. He was the deciding factor in that game. He is another player I don't think the Pats could say no to if he drops. 

I just think he is the real deal. He can attack that ball in the air. he understands scheme and were he needs to be. He played deep a lot and showed up in coverage. He was the fastest of the top Safeties. 

9.6

15

*Bjoern Werner- 6-4, 260,  (U 4.79), 25 Reps, 31" V, 9'3", 4.4 SS, 7.3 3-C,

DE

FLA ST

Fierce passrusher who was unleashed early in the season. He slowed some as the season wore on. Too often looked indifferent against the run for my taste, and reminds me of Bruce Irvin in that respect. However, he has that knack for hitting the Quarterback, and is one of the flock of players in this years Draft who is an infant in football years. 

9.6

16

Kenny Vaccaro- 6-1, 215, (U 4.59), 

SS

Texas 

He is a thumper. However, he is also a terrific athlete. I thought he showed he can also cover and make plays in pass defense as well this year. 

9.6

17

Tavon Austin- 5-8.5, 174,  (U 4.25-4.31),

WR

WVU 

Ultra dynamic with the ball in his hands. However, he is not a real WR yet. He is a Percy Harvin type half WR, and half ball carrier.

9.6

18

Chance Warmack- 6-2, 320

OG

Alabama

A big time thumper with heavy hands. However, he has trouble latching on, and that is the NFL game. He is not a top ten pick. 

9.6

19

*Sheldon Richardson-6-3.5, 294, 34.5"Arm, 30 Reps, (U 4.88), 32"V, 9'8"B

DT

Missouri 

Big 3-Technique who looks like he could be a good one. 

9.6

20

Desmond Trufant- 6', 186, 4.38, 10'5"! 3.85 3-C! 37.5" Vert, 16 Reps,

CB

Washington 

He had just the kind of Performance at the Senior Bowl that propels a CBs into the 1st Round. 

9.6

21

*Alec Ogletree- 6-3, 240, 

LB

Georgia 

A terrific athlete who played in Georgia's terrific defense. I'm probably alone in the woods here, but I don't see him as a 1st Round pick.    

9.6CC

22

*Johnathan Hankins- 6-4, 3105.31, 26" V, 8'8" B, 4.61 SS, 7.59 3-C,

DE/DT/NT

Ohio ST 

Not the most productive DT in the draft, but clearly the most versatile. His ability to play all D-Line positions at anytime, and still get to the QB, is going to make him very popular on April 27th with 3-4 teams. 

9.6

23

Cordarrelle Patterson- 6-1 7/8, 216, (U 4.37), 37" V, 10'8",

WR

Tennessee

Buyer beware uber-talent who struggles with the subtleties of the game. His disappearances in the 4th Quarter scare the carp out of me. 

9.5

24

Sylvester Williams-6-2 5/8, 313, 33.5"A, 27 R,(U 4.93), 26.5"V, 8'6",4.8 SS

DT

N/Carolina 

He is as big, strong, fast, and talented as any DT in this Draft. Plus, he had an excellent senior season. Surprising light on his feet in drills for his size. 

9.6

25

Alex Okafor6-5, 265, 21 Reps, 

Texas

N. Carolina

He is a better football player than Werner, Mingo, and Montgomery. People are missing the boat on this guy. He plays with power, strength and excellent Technique, and just keeps hitting the QB. I hope everyone falls asleep and he drops to the Pats. He's a guy I want on my team. When the Texas needed a defensive play, he made it.

9.6X

26

Jonathan Cooper6-3, 315, 

OG

N. Carolina

He will go a lot lower than this because of his position, but he as complete a O-Guard as there is in this Draft. Zone Blocking teams will be drooling over him. His ability to play with balance and power with his hands and feet is as good as anyone's. I like him a hair more than Womack because I think he latches onto defenders better. 

9.6

27

*Tyler Eifert- 6-5, 252, 

TE

Notre Dame 

Gronk-lite. He is two inches shorter and 20 lighter, but has a near mirror image game.   

9.6

28

*D.J. Fluker-6-5, 332,        

ORT

Alabama

He is as good a Tackle prospect as anyone in this Draft. However, because he is a Right Tackle only, he will fall into the 2nd Round. 

9.6

29

*Eddie Lacy- 6, 220, 

RB

Alabama 

Punishing RB who ran behind maybe the best O-Line in the history of college football.

9.6

30

John Jenkins- 6-3, 358, 30 Reps, (U 5.2), 

NT/DT

Georgia

I just have trouble believing that many 3-4 teams could pass on a NT of his potential. 

9.6

31

Datone Jones-6-3 7/8, 283, 4.8, 29 Reps, 31.5" V, 9'4", 4.32 SS, 7.32 3-C 

DE

UCLA 

He looks like a nice 5-Technique, and can also be a weapon as an inside rusher. 

I like how this kid moves. He gets little high, but at 280 pounds he can really move. I thought he might be able to move outside to a giant OLB, but now I think his best position might be to add a little more size and be that 5-Technique who can rush the passer. I loved what this kid did in the Post season, and I can't wait to do a Tape of him. Unfortunately I accidentally deleted the UCLA-Stanford game, which I was planning on watching after the Senior Bowl. The two times I watched UCLA this year I spent too much time watching the Jr passrusher who didn't come out. So he should be one of my first Tapes. I like his hands and power move turning the corner. 

9.5

32

DJ Hayden- 6', 200, (U 4.63), 10'7" B! 4.27 SS!  36.5, 20 Reps, 

CB

Houston 

Pretty unknown CB who is flying up charts. he could reach the 2nd come April. 

9.5X

Second Round

33

EJ Manuel- 6-4, 240,  

QB 

FLA ST

I have to agree with Mayock here. Manuel is a 1st Round QB. He pulled the chocking out of FLA ST.

Ever time I watch him play I am impressed. He might be the guy I stand on the table for in the 2nd Round. 

9.5

34

Menelik Watson- 6-5, 310, 34" Arms, S-1.8, (U 5.25),  

OT

FLA ST 

Big athletic ORT who is very raw. He will be picked earlier than expected by a team that think he is an OLT. 

9.5

35

*Keenan Allen- 6-3, 210, 

WR

California 

I'm making a bit of a statement here. I don't think any NFL can take a RB or a WR in the 1st Round. If you look at the WR one through seven, there is such little difference in potential that you cannot take a WR in the first when you can get one of equal value in the 2nd or 3rd.

9.6X

36

Matt Barkley  6-2, 225, 

QB

USC

You have to include a QB in the top ten, right? I know he is not in the top ten here, but this might be the worst top end of QBs I have ever seen. Barkley took a beating this year. However, I keep remember him throwing in rhythm to Woods in 2011, and throwing deep to the Kid this past season. I'll take my chances with a QB who can do those two thing so well. 

9.6X

37

Manti Te'o 6-2, 250, 4.8, 

ILB

Notre Dame

Okay, first off I believe him. For old farts like us we can never understand growing up completely in the computer age. One of the new things Kids do is have open intimate relationships with people online who they never met or have any intention of meeting. And for all you old farts out there remember, they have a name for it. As ridiculously insane as it seems to us old farts, they call in cat-fishing. We will never be able to understand what this kid went through. Just as he will never be able to understand what we went through before the digital age. However, I do believe him. 

9.5

38

*Damontre Moore- 6-4.5, 250, 12 Reps! (U 4.87!), 34.75" A, 10'2"! 35.5" V,

DE/OLB/PR

Texas A&M

Another passrusher supreme. He might be the best of the bunch against the run as well. He is a bit new on the scene, but he is looks like the second best passrusher in this years Draft. And in the new pass first ask questions later NFL, there is nothing more important on defense then guys who can hit the Quarterback. 

9.5

39

Jamie Collins- 6-3, 250, (U 4.59)

OLB

S. Miss

Stunning athletic small school Passrusher. He could find himself in the 1st Round by Day One. 

9.5

40

Kawann Short- 6-3, 315,     

NT/DT

Purdue 

I just have trouble believing that many 3-4 teams could pass on a NT of his potential. Rumors of attitude are the only thing that might keep him out of the 1st Round. If he plays hard all the time he's a top talent. 

9.5

41

*Sam Montgomery-6-3.2, 262, 33 7/8" A, S1.6,(U 4.68),34.5" V, 9'6", 4.5 SS

DE/OLB

LSU

Montgomery is a much more complete player than Mingo. He has more production but not as much promise. I go back and forth between the two all day. Mingo's blast off the line is the kind that turns average production into freakish stats. While Montgomery is more the the type of OLB/DE that BB likes.

9.5

42

*Zach Ertz- 6-6, 250,  

H-B

Stanford 

Terrific H-Back who catches passes all over the field.

9.5

43

Travis Frederick- 6-4, 338, 

OC/OG

Wisconsin 

Big kid who played OG and OC at Wisconsin.  

9.5

44

Blindi Wreh-Wilson- 6' 3/4, 195, (U 4.47), 10'8"!, 36" 4.12, 6.97, 14 Reps,

CB

UConn 

Dominated the postseason and will go higher than expected.  

9.5

45

Jesse Williams- 6-3, 320, 30 Reps, 

DL

S. Carolina 

Still more promise than production. That is what a scary athlete he is. He is the most athletic DT/NT in this Draft, but doesn't play that way, yet.   

9.5

46

Jonathan Cyprien- 6-1, 200,  

FS

FLA IU 

Terrific athlete who was dazzling at the Senior Bowl .

9.5

47

Dallas Thomas- 6-5, 310,  

OG

Tennessee 

He could go early to a team that wants an OLT, but he looks like an OG to me.  

9.5

48

*Justin Hunter- 6-4, 200, 

WR

Tennessee

Big play size speed guy, whose game I don't trust. 

9.5

49

Terrance Williams- 6-2, 208, 4.53, 7.01 3-C! 4.32 SS, 32.5" 9'11", 

WR

Baylor 

Big play WR who is also very well built.

9.5

50

Markus Wheaton- 6', 182, 4.31,

WR

Oregon ST

I love to watch this kid play. He is another guy that comes through when his team needs him most. I think he could be a star in the NFL.  

9.5

51

*DeAndre Hopkins- 6-1, 200, 

WR

Clemson

Very good receiver who I'm not sure can be a Number One. However, he could make an interesting Two. 

9.5

52

Brandon Williams- 6-3, 325,  

NT/DT

Missouri S.

The mystery plugger from over the rainbow. However, he looks like a legit NFL NT to me.

9.5

53

*Bennie Logan- 6-3, 300, 

DT

LSU

I thought he played better than Brockers in 2011, but in 2012 he didn't play as well as Brockers in 2011. However, someone is going to be looking for a D-Tackle in the 2nd Round.  

9.5

54

Tank Carradine - 6-5, 260,  

OLB/PR

FLA ST

Turned on FLA ST to watch Wunderkind Warner, and I thought Carradine played better. Then eh blew out his knee.  

9.6X

55

Ryan Nassib - 6-2, 228,  

QB

Syracuse 

A little undersized, and big surprise, inconsistent. He lacks a little size, and when he is on he throws remind me a lot of Drew Brees. The arc, the timing, and accuracy to hit guys on the run, all remind me of Brees. 

Another overrated guy. He has a nice arm and smarts, but didn’t produce the numbers of a 1st Round pick. He can be very hot and cold. 

9.4

56

Darius Slay- 5-11, 200,  (U 4.37), 10'4"! 35.5" Vert, 4.21 SS, 6.9 3-C, 

CB

Miss ST

Exciting under valued prospect who be a teal in the 3rd.  

9.5

57

Khaseem Greene- 6-1, 241, 4.7, 34" V, 17 Reps, 4.2 SS! 9'8", 7.58 3-C

LB

Rutgers 

He kept making every play the Rutgers's defense needed him to make. When they needed a play he was always front and center. He is undersized, but is remarkably freakish at finding the ball carrier all over the field. Plus, he can rush and cover with equal aplomb. He will look best in a Tampa. 

9.5

58

Dwayne Gratz- 5-11, (U 4.41), 10'5 !, 38" V, 4.15 SS, 6.7 3-C, 22 Reps!

CB/FS

UConn

Very good cover Corner, who is also a physical enough tackler to move to FS. 

9.5

59

*Robert Woods- 6-1, 195,      

WR

USC

Silky smooth route runner, who gets open with guile, skill, and smarts. He would makes a nice WR for the Pats. 

9.5

60

Johnthan Banks- 6-2, 185, (U 4.59), 10'5"! 4.27 SS, 6.97 3-C, 34" V, 10 Reps

CB

Mississippi ST

Super athlete with that knack for making the play.

9.5

61

Vance McDonald- 6-4, 268, 37.5", 7.08 3-C! 4.69, 34.3" Arm, 31 Reps

TE

Rice

Still more athlete than football player, but he looks like he can play.  

9.4

62

Robert Alford-5-10, 205,  4.39(O), 11' Broad! 40" V, 4.23 SS, 6.89 3-C, 17 R,

CB

SE Louisiana

Nice feet. Really showed well a the Senior Bowl. I didn't know a lot about him before the Senior Bowl, but he really impressed me there.

9.4

63

Montee Ball- 5-10.5, 214, (U 4.62),  

RB

Wisconsin

Tough as nails TD machine. I like this kid as much as any RB in this Draft, but it is tough to take an Average sized RB who runs a 4.6 in before the 3rd. 

9.4

64

*Le'Veon Bell- 6, 244, 

RB

Michigan ST 

He has everything that made Stephon Jackson great, except the speed. If he can lose 10-15 pounds, like Ridley did after college, he could have a similar career as Jackson. 

9.4

65

*Gavin Excovar- 6-5 7/8, 254, 7.07 3-C!4.84, 10'7" B!4.27 SS!  32", 4.31 SS  

H-Back

San Diego ST 

highly thought of H-Back who dropped the ball a lot when I watched him.

9.3

66

Kevin Minter- 6-2, 245,  25 Reps

ILB

LSU 

Nice athlete who is very aggressive attacking forward. However, I don't know if he is a three down linebacker, as he sometimes looks a little lost in coverage to me. 

9.4

67

Justin Pugh- 6-4.5, 307, 32"Arms, S-1.67, (U 5.1),  

OLT/OG

Syracuse 

OLT wannabe who has almost the exact same measurables as Matt Light.  

9.4

68

Landry Jones- 6-4, 220,

QB

Oklahoma

Another QB whose inconsistencies make evaluating him impossible. The only thing I can add to the conversation is in 2011, when Ryan Broyles was on the field he looked like the second best QB in last years Draft. When Broyles wasn't on the field? Everybody kept asking what the hell happened to Landry? Looked similarly lost early in the year without Broyles. However, he seemed to pull it together late without his obvious crutch at WR. I think he still has a shot at being the best QB from this inconsistent bunch. If Detroit takes him in the 2nd or 3rd Round?

9.4

69

*Tyrann Mathieu-5-8.75, 186, (U 4.43), 4.14 SS, 6.87 3-C, 34", 9'9", 4 Reps!

S

LSU

Pothead who doesn't have the size required to play the position. However, in 2011 he just kept making the amazing big play over and over again in 2011. He could easily turn out to be another Alphonzo Dennard 3rd Day steal of the Draft, or he could go chase mushrooms into oblivion. If the Pats pick him in day three which do you think I'll predict;-). 

His question is that he seems to cause as much trouble off the field as he causes on the field. He was a turnover machine as a Sophomore. So he got a little overrated. But he is small and not the fastest guy. He has that knack for knocking the ball out offensive player's hands. Super splash player who just might not be big and fast enough for the NFL. Terrific punt returner. He has some snap in his hips. Looks better moving forward. My problem with his is that he made most of his plays moving forward. Is an NFL going to let him attack as much as he did at LSU?  

9.4CC

70

Phillip Thomas- 6-1, 215, 

SS

Fresno ST 

He has a lot of fans in the scouting community. He played at a smaller school and didn't get a lot of pub, but he can play. 

9.4

71

Kyle Long- 6-1, 200,  

OG/OLT

Oregon 

Terrific athlete who finally found a home at Safety. .

9.5CC

72

Jordan Hill- 6-2, 290,  

DT

Penn ST

Hill showed some nice feet. This kid can really move. He is a real nice athlete. 

9.4

74

Jordan Poyer- 5-11, 190, (U 4.46), 4.54 (O), 4.18 SS, 6.87 3-C, 30.5" V, 9'10" 

CB

Oregon ST

He had just the kind of Performance at the Senior Bowl that propels a CBs into the 1st Round. 

9.5

74

*Tyler Bray- 6-5, 215,     

QB

Tennessee

This could be the worst 1st Round QBs in NFL history. However, it could also be the best 2nd Round QBs ever. Bray is the young guy with the arm, whose team really sucked last year. You have to ask why couldn't he lead them to more victories?

9.4

75

Larry Warford- 6-4, 330, S-1.92, (U 5.53),

ORG

Kansas

Looked unblockable in the Senior Bowl practice. He manage to reach the QB in the game as well. However, he didn't play that way at Georgia.

*Corey Lemonier- 6-3 3/8, 255, 34.5" Arms, (U 4.53),

OLB

Auburn 

A pure passrusher who needs to be on the field when opponents are trying to throw. 

9.4

77

*Ryan Logan- 5-11, 191, 4.56, 4.06 SS!, 6.69 3-C! 32.5", 9'8", 14 reps 

CB

Rutgers 

He looks like a solid 3rd Round Corner. Solid solid solid. He is guy who everyone just calls solid. When he is in position, he knows what he is doing. He gets it done. 

9.4

78

David Bakhtiari- 6-4.5, 299, 28 Reps, 34" Arms, 25.5" V, 8'5"?, 

OL

Colorado 

Nice athlete. He played OLT. Long legged long strider. Average feet. Changes direction well. Looks good pulling to his left. He gets those long legs moving. Nice first step moving out to pull.

9.4

79

Tavarres King- 6-2, 220,  

WR

Georgia 

Underrated athletic WR, who is one of the best route runners in the Draft.

9.4

80

Terron Armstead- 6-5, 300,  

OLT

Arkansas P-B

Got invited to the East-West game. He played so well he got invited to the Senior Bowl. Players who earn their way intot he Senior Bowl from the East West go earlier than expected.   

9.3

81

Oday Aboushi- 6-5 3/8, 295, 308, 33 7/8" Arms, S-1.89, (U 5.44),

ORT

Virginia 

Played OLT in college. He doesn't have the feet. He will have to shift inside or to ORT.

9.3

82

Cornelius Washington- 6-4, 268, 

DE

Georgia

Looked unblockable in the Senior Bowl practice. He manage to reach the QB in the game as well. However, he didn't play that way at Georgia. 

9.4

84

Quinton Patton- 6-1, 200,  

WR

Louisiana Tech 

He is a small school phenomenon who just keeps getting open and catching the ball. He had what? 21 catches against LSU.

9.3

84

Brandon Jenkins- 6-7, 265, 

OLB/PR

FLA ST 

He looks like a 3-4 OLB to me. If his knee is fine he will be a steal for someone in the 3rd. 

9.5X

85

Arthur Brown- 5-9, 220, (U 4.84), 

ILB

Kansas ST 

Very undersized MLB how is going to struggle with size in the NFL. 

9.3

86

*Giovani Bernard- 5-8, 200, 4.4 (U),  

RB

N. Carolina 

Making a bit of a statement here. I just don't see how any team could take a RB in the 1st Round this year. Even if I thought Bernard was as good as most other Draftnics. Although I did hear him in a recent interview, and I was very impressed. I just don't see a big difference between RB one and RB ten.

9.5

87

*Tharold Simon- 6', 200, (U 4.51), 10'8!, 34", 9 Reps,

CB

LSU

Still much better athlete than football player. 

9.3

88

Devin Taylor- 6-7, 265, 

OLB

S. Carolina 

This kid has it all. Looks like a longer taller Jason Taylor. Only can't seem to put it all together. Then he Dominates the East West game. Not physical enough to play D-End and will have to be an OLB. 

Disappointing athletic freak, who dominated the East-West game and still didn't get an invite to Senior Bowl.

9.3

89

Joseph Fauria- 6-7, 259,  33 3/4" arms, 17 Reps, 

QB 

Arkansas

Another big well thought of TE, who dropped a lot of ball when I watched him. However, he is something to see in the Redzone. 

9.3

90

Lavar Edwards- 6-4, 277, 35.5"Arms, S-1.64, (U-4.81), 

DE

LSU 

A back up who would have been a starter on any other team. 

9.3

91

Malliciah Goodman- 6-4, 270,  36 3/8" Arms, (U4.87),

DE

Clemson 

Freakish athlete who never really put it all together until the final game. Not sure what you do with that

9.3

92

Barrett Jones- 6-5, 305,  

OC/OG/OT

Alabama 

He is my top player for the Pats to pick in the 1st Round. He is likely the smartest player in the Draft, He is likely the best leader as well. BB values versatility. Jones started three Championship Games at three different position, including OLT. That is literally unmatched versatility in the history of football. He was also the well praised leader of the O-Line for three Champions. As far as playing goes? Nobody in this years Draft latches onto a defender and stalemates him with more consistency than Jones, period. 

9.5X

93

Stedman Bailey- 5-10.5, 193, (U 4.5),  

OLB/DE

Auburn

Top deep threat in College, production wise. Disappointing speed will cause question on Draft days.  

9.3

86

Trevardo Williams- 6-1.5, 241,  32.15" Arms, S-1.61, (U 4.6),

LB

UConn

Dazzling edge rusher who is just so small. However, he is so quick he can look untouchable sometimes out in space.  

9.3

95

Zaviar Gooden- 6-1.75, 224, 4.47! 27 Reps! 10'11"! 38.5", 4.18 SS!6.71 3-C!

Super athletic converted Safety. Needs to e on a run and chase defense.

9.4

96

Mike Buchanan- 6-5 3/8, 255, 34"Arms, (U 4.71), 

OLB/DE

Illinois 

Looks the part, but doesn't always play the part.   

9.3

97

*Tony Jefferson- 5-10 3/8, 213, (U 4.62),

SS

Oklahoma

Super Athletic Safety who is a little tight hipped and doesn't always play up to high expectations. 

Big name kid who disappointed me whenever I watched him. I thought he was going to be great.  Nice feet. Tight hips. Opens hips nicely. Nice hands. 

9.3

98

*Akeem Spence- 6-1, 300,  

DE

Illinois 

A little lost between 4-3 and 3-4 D-Ends..  

9.3

99

Thomas Shamarko- 5-8 7/8, 213, 

S

Syracuse

Pure hit seeking missile, who ran an astonishing Forty at Combine. 

9.3

100

Aaron Mellette- 6-4, 220, 

WR

Elon

He has everything you want in a WR, but has played against top competition. Senior Bowl showed where he is in his development. 

9.3

101

Earl Wolff- 6', 205, (U4.37),  

SS

NC ST 

Was productive in college, and ran a surprising Forty at Combine.

Nickel

California 

He has some snap in his hips. Nice smooth feet. I really like his feet and hips in his pedal and transition. He has some suddenness in his shoulders. 

9.3

103

Shawn Williams- 5-11 7/8, 213, (U 4.44), 

SS

Georgia 

Very athletic Strong Safety who is inconsistent. 

9.3

104

DJ Swearinger- 5-11, 200,  

SS

S. Carolina

Hard hitting Safety who is going to draw a lot of fines in the new NFL.  

9.3

105

*William Gholston- 6-6, 275,  

DE

Michigan ST

He looked like a barn burner when he lined up next to Worthy last year. His play in Michigan ST's Bowl Game last year was astonishing. This year he switched side and looked lost without his little buddy. If I'm Green Bay I take a chance on him in the 2nd, and line him next to his little buddy again.

9.4

106

Johnny Adams- 5-10, 190, 16 Reps, (U 4.45),

CB

Michigan ST

Athletic CB who impressed me when ever I watch Michigan ST. This guy goes from zero to sixty real fast. Plays the ball in the air nicely. 

9.3

107

Aaron Dobson- 6-3, 211, 4.42, 4.29 SS, 7.2 3-C, 16 Reps, 

WR 

Marshall

He is going a little under the radar, but he could be a steal in the 4th for somebody. 

9.3

108

Stephon Taylor- 5-10.5, 213, (U 4.65), 

RB

Stanford 

Does everything well. Tough as nails smart runner. 

9.3

109

Michael Chirstine- 5-10, 220, (U 4.41),   

RB

Texas A&M 

Real nice talent when he plays. Played well at East-west game. Troublesome track who can't keep himself out of trouble. He has the suddenness in his shoulders you look for.

Sanders Cummings- 6-1, 216, (U 4.48),  4.3 SS, 7.1 3-C, 34.5" V, 9'9" Broad

CB

Georgia 

This kid is huge. It seems impossible that he can play CB. But there he is on Tape running with WRs. 

9.3

111

Kenjon Barner- 5-11, 190, 

RB

Oregon 

Terrific football player whose forty time was disappointing.

9.3

Andre Ellington- 5-9.25, 199, (U 4.59), 

RB

San Diego ST 

I just like how this kid plays CB.  

9.3

113

Tyler Wilson- 6-2, 220,  

QB 

Arkansas

He had it all as a junior. His team was stacked with talent and had the best QB coach in college. Then everything fell apart around him. The controversy really seemed to hurt every one. Plus, all the excellent talent that stayed, seemed to have wretched seasons as well. So the questions is do you upgrade him for surviving his senior season as the Arkansas program fell apart all around him, or do you down grade him for not being able to give life to the offense without the talent he had as a junior?

9.3

114

Nick Kasa- 6-6, 267, 4.71, 22 Reps, 3-C 7.18! 4.45 SS, 31.5" V, 9'5",

He is big H-Back type who certainly looks the part. He has a nice Senior Bowl. 

9.3

115

John Simon- 6-2, 263,  

OLB/DE

Ohio ST 

The move out to LB at the Senior Bowl has made him a Second Day pick. He is an undersized D-End, who should he had the athleticism to play standing up at Senior Bowl.

9.3

116

Will Davis- 5-11.25, 186, 4.51(O), 10'7! 4.02 SS! 6.52 3-C, 35.5" V, 16 Reps

CB 

Utah ST

Looks the part.  

This is a CB I really liked. However, I thought he was a little disappointing at the Senior Bowl. He can really track the ball and high point it nicely. 

9.3

117

Mike Glennon- 6-7, 235,  

QB

N. Carolina ST 

Overrated inconsistent coach killer. If you are a NFL coach looking to buy, you better beware.  

9.3

Big blocking TE with nice hands.

Huge O-Guard who really looked the part in the NFL. 

9.2

Kevin Riddick- 6-2, 230,  

LB

N. Carolina

Super athletic ILB who can really run and chase. 

9.2

123

Xavier Nixon- 6-5, 330, 

OT

FLA

Looked good every time I saw him. He just might have the feet to play OLT. Not well thought of, but I was impressed when I watched him. 

9.

124

David Amerson- 6-1, 205, (U 4.38), 10'7"! 35.5" V, 15 Reps, 

DB

NC ST 

Not sure he has the hips to be a Corner. Does not have the mentality to be a Safety. Needs to play in a Zone based defense. 

9.2

125

TJ MacDonald- 6-2.5, 219, 4.5

SS 

USC

Appears to be a victim of great expectations. Always played well, but not great. great feet. Not the best hips. Long legged.

Nile Davis- 5-11, 227, (U 4.3-4.31),

9.4X

128

Travis Kelce- 6-4, 250, 

TE

Cincinnati 

Might be the best blend of blocking and receiving in the Draft. However, Character Concerns and speed concerns probably limit him to Day Three. 

9.4CC

129

Robert Lester- 6-1.25, 220, (U 4.68), 

SS 

Alabama

Impressive college football player who plays the dreaded Strong Safety position being phased out of the NFL.

Plays the pass better than expected. However, he still makes mistakes and takes bad angles sometimes, and doesn't have the speed to make up for it. Smooth feet. Hips a little tight. Tracks ball nicely.

9.2

Brandon McGee- 5-11, 193,  (U 4.38), 4.18 SS, 6.71 3-C! 33.5" 9'11",

Aptly name Nickel Corner. 

9.2

133

Michael Ford- 5-9.5, 210, 4.5

QB 

Arkansas

He impressed me every time I watched him. Plus, he didn't get a lot of carries in college so his legs have a lot of trend left on them. he could be a serious steal in the 7th for the Pats.

I just like how this kid plays CB.
