Montez Sweat- 6-6, 260, ()) 4.41, S-1.53, #9, 

Edge

Miss ST

03/2018: He was flagged with a heart anomaly at the Combine. "I talked to decision-makers for several NFL teams and all said they'd pass @HailStateFB pass rusher Montez Sweat on a physical," Gil Brandt twitted. "In fact, I've been told he won't even be called back to Indy for a medical re-check. Great news for one of the top defenders in this draft." They said it shouldn't affect his Draft stock. 

He played with the anomaly at Miss ST. "Because of privacy issues we are not allowed to comment specifically," Sweat's agent said. "But I will tell you that this is not news. Montez is the same person that was medically cleared to play and dominate the SEC, the Senior Bowl, and the NFL combine. No change in health and no change in domination!" But I say it will affect his Draft stock. He ain't going first overall now. 

10/2018: He is a phenomenal rushing talent that led the SEC in Sacks (10.5) and TFL last season (15.5). "The best thing Sweat does is beat people his excellent length. He has over 35-inch arms and more than an 85-inch wingspan and, most importantly, he knows how to use his reach advantage," Jim Nagy wrote. "He is a lean-muscled, good-looking dude and he is most effective working off a long-arm move as a rusher. Last weekend, he was matched against K-State All-American and fellow Senior Bowl Watch Lister OLT Dalton Riser on Saturday and there were times where Sweat simply locked-out and used his leverage to win the match up of top prospects." He looks like a Jason Taylor type QB menace. 

He can use his long arm to seat the edge on option runs and get to the RB trying to get outside. He so fast past the ORT with a little dip and elbow. He can get to the QB fast enough on 3rd down to make him misfire an easy pass that he would have converted. Terrific initial burst to get him low and into position to dip around the ORT, and sack the QB in the clutch. Nice job coming out of his rush to cover the RB slipping outside into the flat. 

Great clutch rusher. He got two sacks in the final drive, as Auburn tried to get back into the game with less than 2-minutes to go. He ended the game for Auburn with :42-seconds left with a a great low power Rip under the ORT to end the game. To Pats at pick 32?

CAREER: One of the most feared edge rushers in America, who makes his presence known in the backfield … Coming off a year in which he tied for the SEC lead in sacks and tackles for loss … Teams with Jeffery Simmons to become the first SEC Coaches First-Team duo to return the following year … Elected to return to MSU for his senior year following a dominant debut season and likely to be a high pick in the 2019 NFL Draft … Came to MSU as one of the top junior college pass rushers and played his freshman season at Michigan State … Enrolled at MSU in January 2017.

2017 JUNIOR SEASON: A first-team All-SEC selection in his first season, starting all 13 games … Played outside linebacker in the 3-4 and defensive end in the 4-3 … Joined Jeffery Simmons as the two became just the second duo in the SEC West since 2003 to both earn first-team All-SEC honors … Became the first Bulldog to lead the SEC in sacks since 2005 with 10.5 for a loss of 64 yards … Tied for eighth nationally in sacks … Also had 7.5 sacks in SEC only games, which tied for the league lead … Produced 11 games with at least 0.5 tackles for loss … Ranked seventh in MSU single-season history in sacks … The only player in the SEC to earn SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week honors three times (vs. Kentucky, Texas A&M, Arkansas)

*Nick Bosa- 6-4, 270, #97

Edgerusher

Ohio St.

10/2018: The Great Bosa season was starting to take place and then crash. He hurt his knee. Rumor has it that he will sit out the rest of the season to protect his future and Draft statue, And while I don't like it, I certainly cannot disagree with that decision. Though the competitor in him still might come out. 

07/2018: The Junior has had rumors of some Character Concerns. "Just my teammates, honestly," Nick said about what he likes the most about football. "Just having fun with them. It's a friendship group, a brotherhood that you wouldn't have just living a normal life and not playing a sport like this. It's so important to be able to fall back on that when stuff gets tough in life. It's good to have." He is a smart kid. 

He is built and plays like his brother. "I've never been bothered by being compared [to Joey]," Nick said. "That's obviously going to happen when you have two similar-looking people who have similar games and similar moves and play the exact same position. But I just come out and do my thing and strive to be better than him." Despite the incredible talent at passrusher last season, he still lead Ohio State with 8 Sacks and 16 TFLs. 

He also had 34 tackles, 2 PBU, and a FF. "I hated not being out there for the first play of the game, but it is what it is and I got to play a lot of meaningful reps," Nick said. " I played all the plays I needed to prove myself and to help my team. In the end, I knew what Coach J (Johnson) was doing. He's always right. He's got a lot of knowledge. So you trust his decisions." When watching him play, it seemed like he had more stats, but stats were hard to come by last season for OSU DLs. 

He was the best passrusher on that team last season, which is saying something. "I felt the feeling of a Big Ten Championship and that was unbelievable, so [I am] just thinking about what it would feel like to be a leader on the team and win it," Bosa said, "And to be an integral part of a national championship game win, beat everyone, get to the playoff and win out. Next year my class is ready to take over the leadership role. I think we're going to have a really good chance. I know the defense is going to be set. That's No. 1 on my want-to-do list." He could be better against the run.

But if he is the first D-end taken, it will be because he hits the QB. "I just want to keep what we had going last year. Keep it going. We finished the year off with an eight-sack game against USC in the Cotton Bowl," Nick said. "So just continue the culture that we set so far and the one that my brother and others set for us: Sam, Ty, Jaly), all those guys. We want to do what Coach J preaches and just keep that going, and enhance it." I like how he talked about total team Sacks/stats and not his own.

I like how he talks about what he learned from older players. "From Sam [Hubbard], he's got great technique, obviously. But what jumps out with him is the fact that he never stops going hard. No matter if something hurts or it's a 20-period practice. He was always at the front of the line, never with his hands on his knees. So that was a great example. And whenever you'd be confused about something, he'd help you out," Nick said. "With Ty [Lewis], he's a grinder. He was around for five years so he' picked up a lot of knowledge from the coaches. Great technique, knowledge of the game, knowing how to play mind games with offensive linemen, not just go out and rush. He's helped me a lot with that." He didn't always start games. 
07/2018: He has great passrushing instincts that let him win with the instant moves that breaks him free, and forces doubles (:05). He has great hands and plays with the leverage that gives him the power to get through the double to hit the QB (:19). "It's so fun to rush the passer. I just like being out on the edge and being on an island with a tackle (or two;)," Nick said. "There's nothing better than putting your hand in the dirt, seeing the quarterback drop back, and having that one-on-one with somebody." That was a phenomenal passrush. 

We saw the power. Now watch the blast off and outside speed to sack the QB (:28). Watch him shed the RB with easy, after he used his initial burst to his outside shoulder. Then watch the elite Combo. He sheds the TE with his hands, and Rips into and past the RB with the greatest of ease. "I was just going to say the same thing," Nick said. "All that training. All the things the coaches put us through. It's to be in position to be able to make a play like that [sack the QB]. When you come off the edge and win, especially if you hit that ball out of his hands. There's no feeling like it." That was a phenomenal sack. 

Guys who can burst upfield and turn sideways to see the QB tend to get a lot of Sacks in the NFL (:49). Sets the edge with power, and is great playing with his arms extended (1:17). Sets the edge, sheds the OT, and the RB runs into him (1:29). He rushes better from the blindside. You should see him there more this season (1:52). Watch the great quicks on the inside Swim.

Speed to power (2:00). Nice quick outside burst to run a free lane on a stunt (2:30). He just has that knack for hitting the quarterback (2:51). He uses his burst upfield to get to Darnold for half a Sack (2:56). This was the final game of last season. "He’s ridiculous right now," Urban Meyer said. "We need some more Bosas (on the Buckeyes)." He will be even better this season.

**D.K. Metcalf- 6-4, 230, ()) 4.33, 11'2" Br! 40.5"Vert, 27 Reps, 7.38 3-C, 4.5 SS, 

WR

Ole Miss

02/2019: First off, he is a one year wonder. "Metcalf hurt his neck, and it is worse than we originally thought," Luke said. "He'll be done for the season. Long-term, he'll bounce back and he'll be fine. We'll make sure he gets the very best care." Which is not always bad thing. 

He really only played his Redshirt Freshman season. "My concern for D.K. is the best for him long-term," Coach Luke said. "We are trying to make sure he has the best info, as far as surgery, and we will get to that other stuff later. My mindset is on getting him healthy." He really only played one season. 

However when he is on the field, he is a a super athletic freak. "I had a month to weigh my options," D.K.  said. "I prayed to God and told Him to put the right decision in me. After meeting with coach [Matt] Luke, they did everything they could to give me the right information, and I made my choice." He has the size of an H-back.

He has the speed of a WR. "He’s raw, but there’s a lot of upside because he’s so big and talented," a scout said. "He’ll probably go in the second round because he’s so talented. He’s going to kill workouts, and he’s a good kid and football is important to him. I’d be shocked if the health checks out if he lasts past the second round." The Combine will be huge for him. 

2017 (REDSHIRT FRESHMAN): SEC All-Freshman ... Week 10 SEC Co-Freshman of the Week following his game-winning TD catch at Kentucky ... Played and started in all 12 games ... Caught 39 passes for 646 yards and seven TDs in 2017, all career highs ... Ranked seventh in the SEC with seven TD receptions ...

*Josh Allen- 6-5, 262, 

OLB/Edge

Kentucky

09/2018: He is the best Edgerusher in this Draft not named Bosa. "(Josh Allen) is playing some incredible football," (He is) playing as well as I’ve seen." He has that rare trait that always translates to the NFL, he seems to move faster and quicker on the field than everyone else. He reminds me of Khalil Mack. Mack lined up as an off the line Linebacker a lot. Allen lines up off the LOS a lot. He will also line up on the strong and weak side. They play stand up OLB, and rarely if ever did they their hands down in the dirt.

"He’s playing some incredible football," UK HC Mark Stoops said. "I know statements get blown up and get headlines. So you have to be careful not to get crazy with it. But he is play some outstanding football! As good as I’ve seen. With all the things that he does: and how versatile he is, and how hard he’s playing, and how dynamic he is with his pass rushes, and doing good in coverage... he’s just doing a lot of things good.”

But most importantly they produce. Mack played more of an ILB early in his career at Buffalo. While Allen plays more outside, and will often line up in the slot to cover, drop, or still rush. He does not line up inside at ILB. But he is a rare tricky talent that a smart 3-4 Defense can exploit. But of course he will be drafted high because of his knack for hitting the quarterback. 

"He put a lot of thought into that (decision). And there’s a lot of information, and I thought he was very mature in how he went about making his decision. So I’m happy that he’s playing the way he is for him personally,” Stoops said about Allen deciding to come back for his senior season. "So happy for Josh and our football team. Josh made a very detailed decision. He put a lot of thought into it. He and I had many conversations. I gave him a lot of information. And he most definitely would be on an NFL roster this year. But he decided to come back and make a difference for the rest of his life."

FLA: Allen lines up as an off the line LB a lot. Usually as the Will on the QB's right. He obviously moves up to the LOS a lot. But when he is at the Will. He drops into coverage a lot. O-lines, like FLA, will shift or slant the OLs over to his side a lot. He dropped the first three times they passed, and left the back side rush unblocked. Then he suddenly Blitzed from the Will, and hit the QB in a flash.
Fakes forward nicely, and then zone drops. Which causes the OLT to reset inside. Nice and fluid moving backwards out to the flat in zone coverage, and can get to the RB when they dump it off to him. He got taken out of the FLA game with a cramp in his calf.
He will line up on the TE in the slot and cover him. He can also shed him, and grab the RB as he tries to slash by. Pure OLB. He can slap the OLT arms down, and dip into the QB with elite lean. He will line up at OLB, and then drop, which I hate. But he draws so much attention from O-lines that other guys go unblocked and get to the QB. 

2017 Junior: AP All-SEC Second Team. Phil Steele All-SEC Third Team. Butkus Award Semifinalist. AP Midseason Second-Team All-American. Sports Illustrated Midseason Second-Team All-American. First-team Midseason All-SEC by The All-American. Played and started in all 13 games. On the season, had 65 tackles (fourth on the team), a team-high 9.5 tackles for loss, a team-high 7.0 sacks, a team-high four QB hurries, 3 PBUs, two forced fumbles and one interception. Ranked tied for eighth in the SEC and 36th nationally in sacks per game (0.58). Got his first career interception at No. 7 Georgia, returning it 14 yards. Has totaled 19.5 career TFL, 14.5 career sacks.

**Quinnen Williams- 6-4, 295, Rs-Soph

DL

Alabama

01/2019: Best defensive player in college football last season by far.

11/2018: He was spectacular, unblockable, inhuman against LSU. He was having a terrific season, but he took it to a whole new level. I had him with 4 Sacks. I don't know what the scorecard said, and I don't care, That's my story and I'm sticking with it. He was past the OG, before he could short set, consistently. He and Oliver have the best blast off of any inside DLs in this Draft. But he has been finding the QB and the RB with alarming regularity this season. 

He has to come out, because he might not find the Offensive players in the backfield with the same consistency next year, like Oliver this year. "We knew they were going to be trying to protect (LSU QB Burrow) most of the game with sliding away from the back. So I really just knew Raekwon was going to get the outside," Williams said. "So I really had to make sure I had the inside locked down so I wouldn’t give him the pass lane. I really let Raekwon do whatever he wants to because he’s a big-time beast. He can do it all." But Williams has been the big time beast this season. 
LSU was doubling him with the OC, and other players most of the game. "I was just like let me do my job and hold down the inside," Williams said. "We work on double-ball bags, which is like you knock the guard down, but flip your hips on the center. I just did that and it worked so I had to finish the play and get a sack." It was not Raekwon getting doubled. 

Williams was destroying every trick OL-coaches can throw at a DL, and he was blasting past it every time with extraordinary explosion. "I make sure I’m focused on my team, focused on the defense itself and just focused on what we have at stake." Williams said. "I don’t want to fall off on what I’m listening about the NFL and all this stuff like that. If my head is straight, everybody else around me head is straight. I don’t want to get cocky or complacent or anything like that." He has been the best D-linemen for Alabama all season long.

The LSU was just the cherry on top. "I'm not going to say I didn’t expect it, but I just feel like I’m doing what everybody did before me," Williams said. "Everybody who played this position or played on this defense, they expect themselves to perform. I feel like I owe the people who came before me, the people who taught me to do it, to play just like them." He has been Alabama best player all season. 

With the injury to Oliver, and not having a Sack in the first half of the season, Williams has moved ahead of Oliver in my eyes. Now Oliver has a longer tracks record, as Williams was behind Raekwon, and Payne and Hand last season, and Redshirted in 2016. I know I am probably overreacting to the LSU game, But I would take him over Oliver.  

02/2018: He is a Redshirt Soph, who is highly unlikely to declare for the Draft this year. However, he has been Alabama's best DL so far this season. He has been harassing QBs relentlessly. He is the player I thought Raekwon Williams was going to be this season.

Experience

Clelin Ferrell- 6-5, 260, #99

DE

Clemson

11/2016:.He can get inside and stop the RB on short yards with a quick burst inside the TE. "This is the stage we've been working for since day one," Ferrell said. "Coming here, I expected to play in the big games. And I expect myself to play well." He is much better getting to the RB inside than the QB. He still falls down too much. 

Explosive inside moves. "Affecting the quarterback is going to be so big in this game," Ferrell said. "It's all about having a desire to get to him. You can have a guy with all the ability in the world. But if you don’t have the passion or the desire to get to him, sacks are going to be minimal. That’s why I go into every game with a chip on my shoulder." He can beat the OLT with one explosive step inside. Relentless protecting the edge against the QB. 

I'm not sure he is ready yet, and should stay in school. "He's getting there," Venables said. "That was a step closer. But his best football is still all in front of him." I don't think he has that knack for hitting the quarterback yet. But he is as physically talented as any DE in this Draft.

He is still only a Redshirt Sophomore. "I redshirted because I wasn't ready, and I had NFL guys in front of me," Ferrell said. "It was the best thing for me to sit out and learn the system and develop my body physically." But he is improving almost every game.

I like how he keeps his hands up, his feet moving, and that he is still developing. "He's done extra in the weight room when he doesn't have to," Venables said. "He values the opportunity to meet and do a walk-through. Not everybody's like that." He will probably have to declare after this season. 

Overview: Redshirted the 2015 season before a prolific run as a three-year starter from 2016-18 … completed college career with 166 tackles, 50 tackles for loss, 27.0 sacks, 51 quarterback pressures, seven pass breakups and five caused fumbles in 2,167 snaps over 44 games (all starts) … left Clemson as only the second two-time, first-team AP All-American and the school’s first such player since 1981-82 … despite playing only three seasons, his 44 starts were the most by any defensive end/outside linebacker in school history … ranked tied for fourth in Clemson history with 27 career sacks, tied with William “Refrigerator” Perry … entered 2018 as the No. 7 player in the nation in the preseason by Sports Illustrated and No. 8 player by NFL.com … No. 4 defensive end in the nation in the preseason by Lindy’s.

*Ed Oliver- 6-3, 290, #10

DL

Houston

10/2018: He has not garnered a Sack so far this season. Yes, he is playing on the Nose, but he still has to hit the QB. Yes, he gets doubled and tripled more than most, but he still has to produce some TFLs. He is being compared to Aaron Donald. 

When Aaron Donald was at Pittsburgh his senior year. He was on the Nose a lot. He was doubled and tripled a lot. But he still produced 11 Sacks, he as the Defensive Player of the Year, and had 26.5 TFLs. That is an average of 2.2 TFLs a game. He is just not disrupting this season. 

07/2018: He was a junk yard dog in a cowboy suit at Houston. "The way I was brought up, you clean your own (horse) stalls," Ed Oliver said. "I don't want anybody cleaning my stalls. We had three horses at one time. Sometimes, my dad would say, 'You clean them all by yourself.' Me and my brother, he would shovel and I'd take the wheelbarrow. Taking the wheelbarrow is the hard part. It's easy to shovel." He was such a junkyard dog that his mother made him sleep out back with the dogs (no need to Google that, it was just a joke;). 

Some think he could be be in the race for the Heisman. "We have to see what he does on the field (in 2018)," Applewhite said. "I think he deserves to be in the conversation. If the award is what it says it is? Which is the best player in college football, then he deserves to be in the conversation." That might be pushing it a bit (or a lot;) for a DL. 

He was the top recruits in the county coming out of high school. "He was the best player on the field every time Houston played," a scout said. "He was the guy from a prospect standpoint that you couldn't take your eyes off. He can do it all." He got hurt early in the season last year.

He plays Nose Tackle for them in their 3-4 system. "Athleticism and effort," Houston HC Applewhite said. "He's a unique player because of his athleticism. There's a lot of [defensive tackles] that can sit there and plug." He is a true freak of nature. 

He can cover the WR going down the line. "I do plan on leaving (after this season). I wish I could stay another year, but it's my time to go." Oliver said. "This was a dream of mine coming in. I knew I was going on a business trip. And whether my business trip was three years or four years it just depended on how early I got on the field, and how effective I was." Plus, he is very smart. 

He can read the screen and get outside to the sideline, and cover the WR on the bubble screen. "When we ran this (play in practice) we widened our (running) back out all the way behind the Tackle. Because we knew (the RB) could run," Applewhite said. "And (Ed) ran down Catalon's hip, and the ball was thrown perfectly by Greg. And he (Oliver) knocked it down, like he was in man coverage." Best One-Gapper in this Draft. 
07/2017: He is one of those rare guys, who seems to burst off the snap ahead of all his teammates. That is such an advantage (:01 and :35). Top inside gap-shooter in this Draft (:44). He is so quick off the snap that he can get tripped from behind by the OL he just completely burn, and still get up and get in on the TFL (1:26). He doesn't just stack and shed (1:33). He knocked the OL back two yards. Then stacked and shed him, and made the play. 

He is so explosive disrupting right up the middle of the offense (2:58). He is so tough to stop that he eventually finds the ball behind the LOS. He gets the OC moving backwards so fast with speed to power, and then spins into the QB (3:01). He reminds me of John Randle  (3:21). He is a relentless, explosive, hyperactive, and undersized passrusher.

He is about 6-2 (like Randle), and his arm length could keep him out of the top spot, but he is still a top five pick. Watch him Stack. Then the spin out of the block as he is Held by the OL (4:22). Look how small and relentless he looks as he powers through the double team, twice (4:35). He uses his explosion to stuff the double team back at the point (5:22). Here he is pushing back the triple team by three OLs again (5:39). Only the best of the best get attention from three OLs on one play.

**Dwayne Haskins- 6-3. 231, 33 1/2"A, 9.5" Hand, 50 TDs, 8 INTs,  (O) 5.04, 28.5"V,

QB

Ohio State

02/2019: Haskins will be the first QB taken. "The big word is respect and earned trust," Meyer said. "It’s the job of a leader. Earn trust. With all due respect to other sports, this is the most unique position in all of sport. You have to understand the entire defense, have to understand all other ten players, what they’re doing on offense. He has to make decisions in split seconds. And, by the way, he’s got people like Bosa trying to tear his throat out. It’s very unique position, but he’s  [Haskins] done very well. And Tate has done very well, too." Haskins has that ability to take the big hit and complete the next pass. 

It is easy to forget how young he is. "Originally, I thought Dwayne would be a Redshirt candidate,” Urban Meyer said. “When I first started recruiting him two years ago, he was very skinny. Then about three weeks ago, I saw him work out. I’ve been blessed to be around some incredible quarterbacks. But he’s the best that I’ve seen at his age since I’ve been coaching." He has that spark that you need at QB. 

From eyes to arm he might have the quickest release in the Draft. "His release, his arm strength, his size (are terrific). He’s so much bigger than he was a couple years ago, and his footwork (is terrific as well),” Meyer said. “He’s so well-coached. We have such admiration for his technique." He is pass first QB, but he can make plays with his feet as well. 

I'm not sure he will be the best QB from this Draft, but he will be the first taken. "The Maryland game was one he dropped his pads at the toughest time in the game, against a very good defense, and got that yard," Meyer said about when Haskins became a leader in his eyes. "The job of a quarterback, and I can't tell you how many times we told him, and I've told him, the job of the quarterback is to get the 1st down, to move the chains." He has the leadership and toughness that QBs have to have.

He has that quick twitch brain that can get to his fourth option. "That position is, as you've heard many times around here is arguably the most unique position in all of sport," Meyer said about his QB. "What he's asked to do (on the field), and coaches aren't on the field, there's ten other guys looking at him every snap. And you better give the right answer. And they better trust and believe in him. And our guys certainly do." This is a weird QB Draft, and teams at the very top don't really need QBs. 

Herbert is probably the most talented, but he is wisely staying in school. Lock likely has the best eyes of the QBs, but he has smaller than acceptable hands. Finley is a great cerebral QB, but rumors that he is a jerk are swirling around. Stidham is the best SEC QB, but he has been more inconsistent than makes he happy. Tyree Jackson has elite measurements and arm, but can't control his arm yet (his passes get away from him too much). Thorson has been linked to the Pats, but his inconsistency worries me. 

Haskins has a great arm, and has shown it in the clutch, but he clearly has some issues. "I would love it," Haskins said about playing for the NJG. "I grew up watching Eli Manning back when he had Shockey and Toomer and Plaxico. I loved that team. That’s where I’m from, New Jersey." I'm from Jersey. You from Jersey?  

The top three teams in this Draft took QBs last year, and will not be taking a QB. They might try to set up a biding war with Oakland and the NJG, but it ain't gonna work. Oakland picks 4th, but they have two other 1st to look at QBs, in this odd QB Draft. But the Giants might have to worry about the Raiders and Buccs before them. the 49ers will be looking to trade down for an Edge guy, and the Jets should be looking to trade down as well. 

Ohio State Overview: Dwayne Haskins elected to enter the 2019 NFL Draft after an electric, exciting and enforcer-mode 2018 season with the Buckeyes that saw him become a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, win the Chicago Tribune Silver Football award as the best player in the Big Ten, and earn the Big Ten’s Graham-George Offensive Player of the Year and Griese-Brees Quarterback of the Year awards … a third-team Associated Press All-American, Haskins entered the 2018 season with just 171 plays on offense from his red-shirt freshman campaign in 2017, but included was an impressive 30 plays in the 31-20 victory over Michigan that season where he led the team to 217 yards of offense and 17 consecutive points and a come-from-behind victory … from the first game of the 2018 season to the very end, Haskins left no doubt that he is one of the great quarterbacks in Big Ten Conference history and, very probably, the greatest throwing quarterback in Ohio State history … he set 28 Ohio State records in 2018 and added seven additional Big Ten Conference records, including single season passing yards (4,831), touchdown passes (50) and total offensive yards (4,939) … Haskins also set a Big Ten record for most offensive player of the week awards with six
2018: In those six games, he threw for the most yards (313) and TDs (five) in a first-start for any Ohio State quarterback (vs. Oregon State); he completed 21 of 24 passes for 304 yards and five TDs vs. Tulane; he led Ohio State on two touchdown drives inside of 8 minutes to play in the come-from-behind, 27-26, win at No. 9 Penn State; he threw for 455 yards and six TDs vs. Indiana; he threw for 405 yards and accounted for six touchdowns – three in the fourth quarter with each one tying the game – in the OT win at Maryland; and he threw for 396 yards and six touchdowns against No. 4 Michigan’s No. 1 ranked defense … one week following the Michigan win he threw for 499 yards and five touchdowns to earn game MVP honors in the Big Ten championship game win over No. 21 Northwestern … his three touchdown passes vs. No. 9 Washington in the Rose Bowl gave him 50 for the season and enabled him to become only the sixth FBS player to throw 50 TDs in a season … against top 25 opponents in 2018, Haskins threw 20 TD passes against just two interceptions … he was the first Big Ten quarterback ever to have three, and then four, five-or-more TD pass games in one season … in just 22 games and only 14 starts for his career, Haskins climbed to ninth in Ohio State history with 5,396 passing yards and to fourth with 54 touchdown passes … Haskins red-shirted the 2016 season at Ohio State and then played in eight games in 2017 … J.T. Barrett, who set 39 Ohio State and/or Big Ten records, was the starter in each of Haskins’ first two seasons … Haskins was a two-time OSU Scholar-Athlete majoring in journalism and he was a two-time Academic All-Big Ten Conference honoree.

OLT

Washington ST

02/2019: He had the 2nd fastest 3-Cone behind Garrett Bradbury at the Combine. He was first in the Short Shuttle with a 4.4 for OLs. He had the 4th best Forty for OLs with a 4.89. He is the only plug and play OLT in this Draft, with the premium athleticism to be a great one. He is the best OLT in this Draft. He is the best OL moving backwards in this Draft. 

He is the best in Pass Pro in this Draft. Terrific hand punching and shoving while kick-sliding back. 

He looked bigger at the Senior Bowl. He looked even bigger at the Combine. As he gains weight and strength he looked more and more ready. He is a better run blocker on Tape than I thought. He will be the top OL taken because of his ability to move backwards and protect the QB's back. He has heavier hands than given credit. But more of a shover than puncher. 

02/2019: He really looks the part. Best OT moving backwards. He has the long arms and feet to be a great one. He showed he had the best burst moving backwards off the snap of any OL at the Senior Bowl. It was very impressive. He has the hips to play OLT in the NFL. He also played with some power, but he needs to get stronger. 

He was so quick moving backwards that it looked like he was oversetting. A big gap would open up behind the OLG next to him. DLs kept seeing that inside lane and taking it. By the end of the week he was as quick backwards, and was power stepping forward to slam the DE who tried to break in front of him to the QB through the lane his quickness moving backwards open up. 
WSU CAREER: Four-year letterwinner…appeared in 42 games, starting final 39 games at left tackle…two-time All-Pac-12 Conference selection…earned All-America honors and All-Pac-12 First Team accolades as a senior…earned bachelor’s degree in social science.
RS-SENIOR (2018): Named to SI.com All-American Second Team and Associated Press All-America Third Team…named to All-Pac-12 Conference First Team…started all 13 games at left tackle…earned team high five “Bone Awards” given to the WSU Offensive Lineman of the Week (SJSU, OSU, ORE, CAL, ARIZ)…rated third-best offensive tackle in the country, the top pass-blocking tackle and second best screen-blocking tackle in the country by ProFootballFocus College…allowed just one sack on 677 pass attempts.

*Devin White- 6-1, 240, #40, 

LB

LSU

07/2018: He is so fast into the backfield. He has that knack for shooting the gap and finding the RB. "Coach Saban was like 'If you go there, we’re just going to have to beat you every year,'" White said. "I'm like, 'Wow. He really said that?'" Can he become another Roquan Smith?

I say no, because I just watch the Playoff games again, and Smith might be the best I've seen in college. Roquan was consistently faster to the RB than anyone I've seen. "I wasn’t a Tiger yet, and he was speaking facts at the time. He was telling me like it was," White said. "But now that I’m here and I remember it in the back of my head. I’m telling you, it happened two or three years ago and it really stuck with me." But if White takes a step up or two, who knows?

He is not as fast to the ball as Smith. "We’re fortunate to have him and Rashard Lawrence," LSU HC Ed Orgeron. "Both have been leaders for us. Obviously Devin’s a lot more productive. The last time I had a sophomore like that was Warren Sapp at Miami." I worry about him in coverage. 

But he is as smart as Smith. "I know he comes in at 10. So I want to make sure I watch the whole film so I can tell him what happened on certain plays. I know he’s watched it all already," White said about LSU DC Dave Aranda. "We start watching film together, starting with Clip 1. He breaks down every play on why and if it went well and why we had a bust and who had the bust. Sometimes, he gets on the drawing board. We talk to each other, and it just clicked for me." He can struggle to take on blocks sometimes. 
He has to react faster, and take on blocks better to be close to Smith. "There’s a value in communication and coach-player relationship. I think we found that right away, Devin and myself," Aranda said. "I respect Devin because he wants to be the best. He holds himself to a high standard. He holds others to a high standard, and he wants to continue to get better. He’s always looking, and I’ll always be there giving." He has to take a big step up in coverage, and beat blockers faster if he wants to be a First. 

His first reaction is always forward (:01). He finally sheds the big blocker (:51). He has to learn to take on blockers better, get to the RB faster, or run around blockers quicker (1:27). Good coverage, coming out of his drop to pick up the RB. Then he turns to the QB who had to take off (1:35). Nice quicks turning to run with the outside WR (1:48). He filled the wrong hole, which sent the RB into the pileup (1:59). Then he went and got him. 

Nice job sneaking up the middle, and grabbing the QB's ankle for a sack (2:54). Great instincts here. He heads to the RB sneaking out of the backfield. Then he turns to the QB for some reason, and almost scoops up the fumble (3:17). He really struggled taking on blocks from 73 (3:28). I'd like to see him in coverage moving backwards (3:36). We know he is great moving forward. But can he stayed on the field on 3rd down in the NFL?

As good as he is moving forward, he is not nearly as instinctual moving backwards (3:58). That is not a drop. That is just peeking into the backfield (4:08). The more I watch him the less I like the way he takes on blockers (4:17). He changed directions too many times again in his zone drop (4:27). How did this guy get 133 tackles last season (4:37). He always takes those false steps before he drops (4:47). He has good feet, and is smooth in his pedal moving backwards. But the false steps are killing me. 

He is so good moving forward, but can look like a chicken with his head cut off moving backwards. But he can certainly make plays moving forward (4:58). There we go. he finally does a good job in coverage. He can run with the RB coming out of the backfield, up the middle (5:24). Reasonable pedal with his head on swivel to see the QB, and the guys crossing behind him (5:35). He takes a false step (6:07). But then shows a nice fast pedal. 

He can change direction in his drop while watching the QBs eyes (6:40). Completely taken out of coverage by the play action on the last two plays (7:26). The more I watch him the less I like him.

Brian Burns- 6-5, 249, 33.7"Arm, 7.01 3-C (O) 4.53, 10'9"Broad, 36"Vert, 

Edge

FLA ST

09/2018: Great initial burst. He uses his hands well to slap his way past the ORT. Nice inside shoulder shove that he uses to change directions. He has some speed down field chasing the ball carrier. He has the physical traits teams want. Plays hard. Hustles after QB, and changes direction with some twitch to go after the RB. 

Not a warrior against the run. He charges upfield most plays. He can hold the point on the TE, and keep the TE at bay with his long arms. When he uses his hands in run defense, he can hold the point. Very nice spin move inside to QB. Nice quick swim over the ORT. He caused a fumble against Clemson by bursting into the backfield and hitting the QB and RB at the hand off. Very impressive blast off.

He has a shot in the 1st if he can improve off last season. He has that knack for finding the quarterback, even on keepers. Nice lateral quicks while fighting off blockers. I like how he used his long arms to push off, and then burst laterally after the ball. He will drop into coverage as a FLA ST OLB. Needs to add weight. 

Rushes from both sides. "In some ways, his get off and his bend reminds me of Myles Garrett," FSU D-ends Coach Snyder said. "That’s the only guy I’ve been around that can do what Brian can do rushing the quarterback." Like to put his hand down on strongside, and stand up in weak side.

**Greedy Williams- 6-2, 185, (O) 4.37, #29

CB

LSU

07/2018: He is a great shut down Corner who was voted an all-American this year. He does a good job stuffing the run on the edge. He got his sixth INT in the Bowl Game against ND. He can come off his zone, when he sees he ball in the air, and go and get it. 

He garnered 6 INTs, and 32 return yards last season. He also lead the nation with 15 PBU. "I felt a little underrated," Williams said about his being recruited. "But I knew, it was just all politics." He got in on 38 tackles.

Great athlete with the speed and COD to play Corner in the NFL. "I got my nickname when I was seven months," Williams said. "My mom had my aunt watching me. My aunt said I was drinking a lot of milk. From there, she had named me Greedy Deedy. My mom took the Deedy off. Now I’m just Greedy." If has as good a year this year as last year? 
He will be a top five pick. "He just told me over my shoulder one day at practice, 'I know, bro. I gotta make those plays,'" Williams said about Dupre. "They actually listened, gave me some respect and listen. The other guys were saying what I was saying." He has shown to be a tough leader.
A guy his teammates really respect, and listen too "Greedy, he definitely don’t mind getting in the driver’s seat, trying to take over," Ex-LSU WR Chark. "I like Greedy’s attitude. You can beat him on a play, but he’s still going to come back on the next play. It’s very exciting. It makes practice fun." He seemed to come out of nowhere last season. So we'll have to see if he can keep it up this Year.
2018: Continuing the tradition of DBU as one of the top lockdown corners in all of college football ... Cornerback with a big frame ... Has great instincts and tremendous ball skills ... Finished with six interceptions to lead the Southeastern Conference and finish with the third most in the country ... Became the first LSU player since Craig Steltz in 2007 to lead the SEC in interceptions ... His 1.3 passes defended per game were amongst the best in the SEC and in the nation ... The third player in the SEC since 2008 to lead the league in passes defended and interceptions ... Full name is Andraez but goes by Greedy ... Grandmother nicknamed him Greedy when he was young.
REDSHIRT FRESHMAN SEASON (2017): The top freshman cornerback in all of college football ... Started every game at left cornerback for LSU ... Totaled six interceptions for 32 return yards ... Finished with 38 tackles, 17 passes defended and 11 pass breakups ... Intercepted passes against BYU, Chattanooga, Arkansas and Texas A&M for no return ...

**T.J. Hockenson- 6-5, 250, #38

TE

Iowa 

02/2019: He is not as good at getting open in pattern as Fant. But when Fant was out he is the guy who Miss ST doubled. He opened some thing up for the WRs. He has a nice burst off the snap. He can run by the LB in pattern. Is not nearly as good in the passing game as Fant. He finally caught one late in the 4th, and ran though five defenders. 

Vicious blocker, who doesn’t just look to pancake the defender, but hurt them. Terrific inline blocker. He can also get outside and put the CB on skates for five yards. He will get over aggressive blocking sometimes, and get tossed about. 

He has elite strength and balance. He also has some speed. He finally got caught from behind by the safety when running with the ball. Nice job catching the pass swinging out to the Flat. Looks like a FB on the field sometimes. He can line up in the slot and catch the quick out short, and run for another 15-yards fighting the SS.
He can hit the DE, and turn him inside as quickly and violently as I have ever seen. He made two of the best blocks I have ever seen in my life this past season. When he misses a block he can miss very badly, and end up on the ground. Great natural hands. 

He has great soft hands and catches the ball naturally, but does not run patterns to get open like Fant. He needs to be schemed to a little to produce in the pass game. He looks more like a FB than a TE to me. He is not a great receiver to the 3rd level, but he can catch it on the 3rd level. 

Hawk-Item: Ranks 38th in career receiving yards with 1,080 yards on 73 receptions, while scoring nine receiving touchdowns and one rushing touchdown . . . ranked seventh in the Big Ten in receiving yards per game (58.5), eighth in receiving yards (760) and 11th in yards per catch (15.5).

2018: Led team in receiving yards (49-760) and was second in receptions and touchdowns (6). . . started at tight end in 33-7 win over Northern Illinois as offense gained 209 net rushing yards . . . four receptions for 64 yards vs. NIU, with a long of 24 yards . . . started at tight end in 13-3 win over Iowa State . . . led team with career-best six receptions for 33 yards vs. ISU . . . started at tight end in 38-14 win over Northern Iowa as offense gained 545 yards total offense . . . two receptions for 16 yards vs. UNI . . . started at tight end in 28-17 loss to #18 Wisconsin . . . three receptions for career-best 125 yards vs. the Badgers, with a long of 46 yards (twice)

Christian Wilkins- 6-4, 297, #42

DT 

Clemson 

07/2018: Vs Auburn 2017: I don't think he comes out (how's that for a prediction;), but he does have that knack for finding the ball carrier. They are doubling him on passing downs inside much more this season. He has been disappointing so far this season. They moved him all over last season, and now he seems to have a set position at DT. 

Then he exploded upfield past the OC and ORG, and tackles the RB for a loss. Then he was triple teamed at the point, shed all three and got out in front of the RB. He is so amazing sometime. He will hustle down filled on short throws over he middle, and devastate the RB from behind. Saying he was a little disappointing this season may have been a disappointing statement.

07/2017: He rushed at NT one play, where it is just too easy to double him. But it did lead to a sack by a teammate. Nice job grabbing OL as he reads the play, and then shoving him off and going after the ball. I'd like to see him in ore one gap situations. I do not like him rushing right on the Nose. Triple teamed in the rush again. They have to get him off the Nose in the rush. He ends up looking at the QB too much as he uses his arm to push off rushers, but does get up field.

 Super athlete freak who played mostly DE last season, but dominated when he was able to get snaps inside at DT. "My strength is just as good as it has ever been so I’m even stronger," Wilkins said. "I got stronger this summer. So I can play at it. I just wanted to be at a good healthy weight so I could last really." He is a scary athlete who just got scarier.

As an oversized D-end he incredibly set a Clemson record for DLs with 10 PBU last season, and is now lighter and quicker. "I definitely feel it," Wilkins said. "At the tail end of the season I was at 310 or 315, and now at 297. I’m not as gassed out there. I’m running and I’m feeling good. I’m running like a gazelle, or something out there. So I’m definitely feeling good and seeing the difference." Seriously, that is just scary.

He was great on the edge last season at 315. "It’s been everything I dreamed of, everything I could have hoped for,” said Wilkins, a 6-4, 310-pound junior. “I won a national championship. But I was also challenged off the field. I’ll get a degree in December. I have great teammates challenging me to be my best on the field and off the field as well." Plus, he scored a TD on offense last season. 

He ran for a TD off a fake punt. "It’s about not just filling your [incoming] class, but getting the right guys," Swinney said about Wilkins and Dexter Lawrence. "Guys who fit your culture. Who love football. Guys you don’t have to chase into the weight room. Guys who pursue excellence in everything they do." He also blocked a field goal, and now he's lighter and more explosive?

Everyone seems to think he will move inside to DT, but he was a DE-edgerusher last season. "I’m quicker, I’m faster and I’m still strong," Wilkins said after losing 15-18 pounds this off season. "I’m comfortable at 297 right now. It gives me the ability to play wherever and to play a lot of snaps." He is good at setting the edge.

But he will get over aggressive sometimes and charge the QB or RB. "We wouldn’t have gotten Christian Wilkins seven years ago," Swinney said. "Now, we’ve got some results that we can share: The academic success, the athletic success. We can say, 'That's what we do.'" Now he just has to turn that elite talent into Sacks. 

08/2018: Wilkins is the real deal. He plays a lot of Nose Tackle, when I don't think he is a nose tackle. I don't like the way they use him in their two-gap system. I think he will explode in the NFL in a one-gap system. But he does a great job stacking and shedding, and finding the ball right in the middle of the line. He is also much better at bursting up the middle and hurting the QB than Hurst.

*Rashan Gary- 6-5 287, #3

DE

Michigan

07/2018: I think he is more of an Edge guy than a DT. Still better exploding up field than turning the corner. Once he learns to bend a little better, watch out. He dashes inside quick from the wide-9. He can stop the draw from the edge. He really plays all over, on both sides, and often inside. Great versatility. He is a big edge guy. He will play the 5-Tech in Odd fronts. 

He has the size and hands to stack and shed on the edge. Great twitch in stack and shed. He plays on both sides of the line. Great hustle. Needs to read it a tick quicker. Nice Rip around the Corner.  He needs to find the ball more. Has to improve his instincts, and read and react less. 

Plays and stays low, very well. Like most of the DLs in this Draft, we have seen more potential than production. He uses his explosion to run past the QB too much. He can burst though a Gap, and find the RB in the backfield. He will probably stay in school one more year, unless he turns his elite movements skills into production. 

Needs better eyes. He gets fooled and doesn't hold his position, which allows teams to run behind him. Very good stunter, who can flash inside and take out the ORG and the OC, so the DT can break free outside. He is also very slippery stunting inside, and getting in the QB's face right up the middle, when the DT blocks for him. They have him spy the QB. When the QB takes off he will chase him 30-yards downfield. The other OLs will double and even triple him occasionally (okay, so I saw him tripled once;). 

At Michigan: Three-time letterman (2016-17-18). Recipient of the 2017 Richard Katcher Award, presented to Michigan's most outstanding defensive lineman or outside linebacker. Two-time All-Big Ten honoree (first team, coaches 2017-18; second team, media, 2017-18). Two-time All-Big Ten selection by the Associated Press (second team, 2017-18).

*Jonah Williams- 6-4 1/2, 302, 33.5" Arms, (U-5.10-5.13), S- 1.77, 23 R, 28"V, 9'4"Br,

OLT 

Alabama 

03/2019: He gets off balance in pass pro too much. But is so great at holding on and/or hopping back and recovering. Some teams will take him off their OLT list. You only take him in the top half of the Draft if you think he is an OLT. Played ORT and then moved to OLT. He can ride speed pas the QB. 

I think he is an NFL OLT. 33 5/8" Arms was a great number for him. That means he has long enough arms to play OLT in the NFL. But his 8.01 3-Cone and 4.79 Short Shuttle are questionable numbers for an OLT. He has some nice feet. He sure looked like he had short arms while running his Forty at the Combine. I hate to say it, but he might be a better OG (I didn't say that;). 44 starts at OT at Alabama.

08/2017: He gets his hands out wide too much. He has to keep them high and tight consistently to play in the NFL. He wants to grab short outside the shoulders too much. He uses his feet very well to keep his position, but his hands need work.
He will start slow sometimes, and look very average. He can struggle to get to the second level on run downs. Nice fighter on the edge. When he gets position with his feet he is very tough to beat. He is a beast blocking down on the DT on short yardage. He seems to get better as the game goes on. 
He can whiff on the quick inside move. He can slide back smoothly, and once he gets his hands in a shirt he does not let go. Good feet moving way outside on the outside blitz. Plays best when he can forklift his hands up and push the rusher off his leverage.

*Noah Fant- 6-5 249, 6.81 3-C! (O) 4.5, 10'7"Br,  4.22 SS, 39.5"V, 20 R

TE

Iowa

10/2018: Fant took a huge step up this season, epically in blocking. With all the stuff going on with Gronk, if he is on the Board when the Pats pick, I would be shocked if BB could pass on him. He has been great this season, blocking inline and getting open and catching everything thrown to him.

09/2018: I am not the biggest Noah Fant fan. But where there is smoke there is usually fire. There is enough heat around him to see someone is spilling the NFL beans. He has gained 8-pounds of muscle since last season (233 to 241). He led all TEs last season with 11 TDs. 

He plays for Iowa so you know he can run block. "My big thing for spring ball was my run blocking technique," Fant said. "That is always something I want to get better at. That is always something I feel I can improve on." That is a sign he understands his weaknesses, and what he has to improve to play in the NFL.

He is being coached by the HC's son Brian Ferentz, who was the TE coach for the Pats in the 2010 and 2011 seasons. "He taught me it’s always about keeping your feet running and keeping your hands inside," Gronkowski said about Brian. "Like when you’re pushing a car. What are you going to do? You’re not going to push like one-legged duck paddles. You’re going to run your feet, just like you’re running." If you're a TE  than doing anything Gronk does to prepare for football is smart (including wearing his number;).
So he is working with an NFL Tight End coach (who is being trained to be Iowa's HC;). "You can look at a thousand things," David Ferentz said. "But I think at the end of the day, what you’re trying to do is make sure you’re doing things you need to do to win ball games." I'm sold already.

Okay, let's see what I'm missing. He gets into the defender, almost like he was blocking, and pushed off (:01). He got his hands into the DE's shirt, Nice technique, but didn't have the strength or position to hold on (:06). Motion TE. He seemes to mostly run stops (:12). He likes to put a little waggle in his routes (:19). He put a little wiggle in that Out.

He is running a pattern, but that is how we'd like to see him block (:23). He got position. Than grabbed his arm instead of his shirt. But it worked for the RB who hopped around him (:31). He is really more of an H-back. I'm calling him an H-back for now on. He looks ugly-ugly-ugly running those stupid Digs and blocking (:38). Then he breaks free in space like a ballerina and scores. Of all his traits I like, a nose for the endzone is his best trait. He led all H-backs (and TEs;) with 11 TD receptions in 2017. 

He lined up in the slot like an H-back/WR. He started blocking a little early. But he held shirt and moved laterally for over three seconds. That is impressive (:53). I think he looks a little stiff like Gronk when he runs patterns (:59). Runs the seam, and then pushes off to get open (1:06). When the QB throws it to him he catches it. That is a great catch through contact. He got crushed in the back (1:12). He finds the rusher late. But he shows nice form in pass pro, and stones the big LB (1:20). Any signs of great blocking is a big deal for him in the Draft.

That was a nice Post. If the QB threw the ball, it was a TD (1:29). He simply has to hold on better in pass pro (1:35). That was a great block. He hit the inside guy, and held on as the OLB hit him and tried to get around him (1:42). It might not have been on purpose, but he kept three defenders out of that play.

Daniel Jones- 6-5, 230, #17

QB

Duke

02/2019: I have about even with Lock right now as the second QB in this Draft. The rub is that he goes to Duke. Duke players don’t leave early. That is how they build their program. Their program is like Iowa. They don’t win with talent. They win with older guys. Their guys stay in school, so they have an abundance of Seniors and fifth year seniors, who know how to win in college. 

"What I like most about Daniel is he's just, as I said about Coach Cut, he's consistent. He's a consistent leader. He's a good leader, and he's our leader." Duke LB Giles-Harris said. "The best thing about him is he's a smart kid who works his butt off in the film room day in and day out. There's days where I will be leaving our facilities, and Daniel has been in there after school or whatever, Daniel has been in there since like 8:00 in the morning and it's like 10:00 at night and he's still watching film. 

"You kind of look at him and you're saying, hey, how much are you going to watch, how much can you get. It's always a little bit more. He never short ends anything, he never backdoors anything. He always gives his all, and that's the best thing about him. He's a student of the game, and he's one of the best there is."

Maybe Duke does not have NFL talent, but experience winning talent for college. But this guy is a phenomenal NFL prospect. Like I always say, in the NFL it is all about the mental for QBs. Just look at Brady. He literally is the GOAT, and literally had the worst Combine EVER on tape. 

"He’ll be a 1st round draft choice if he does come out," Duke coach Cutcliffe said. "He’s so active. He’s big, fast and understands the game. He has a quick mind to go with that fast body. Impeccable character. You don’t get many chances to draft a guy like that."

Locks onto a single target too much. Thinks on the field too much. If his first target is covered, he tends to whip it at his second option with heat, with varying results. Looses control of his feet when he get nervous in the pocket. He can run a play action where he puts his back to the defense, but will struggle to find a place to throw after. Really struggles to hit his forth option. It is all about keeping better control of his feet for Stidham. 

"He’s a smart, smart young man and I’m certainly going to support whatever he does and be happy for him,” Cutcliffe said. “Even if he leaves early, my feeling will be joy because he’s earned that opportunity."

2018: Team captain ... Walk-On’s Independence Bowl Offensive Player of the Game ... received the program’s Carmen Falcone Award as Duke’s Most Valuable Player, becoming the sixth two-time recipient of the honor, joining Leo Hart (1969-70), Keith Stoneback (1973-74), Scottie Montgomery (1998-99), Mike Hart (2000-01) and John Talley (2005-06) ... two-time ACC Quarterback of the Week honoree and Manning Award Star of the Week recipient following performances against Northwestern and North Carolina ... played in and started 11 games ... missed the Baylor and N.C. Central tilts due to injury ... suffered fractured left clavicle in the third quarter versus Northwestern and underwent surgery on September 9 ... completed 237-of-392 (.605) passes for 2,674 yards with 22 TDs and nine INTs while rushing 104 times for 319 yards (3.07) ... recorded a pass efficiency rating of 131.69 ... compiled 2,993 total offensive yards ... averaged 243.09 passing yards, 29.00 rushing yards and 272.09 total yards per game ... caught one pass for six yards (6.00) ... punted twice for 54 yards (27.00) with both kicks downed inside the opponent 20 yard line ... scored 18 points.

*Deandre Baker- 5-11, 193, (PD) 4.46, (U) 4.53,  9'10" Br,  14 Reps, 

CB

Georgia 

03/2019: Baker saved his Draft position with a sub-4.5 Forty at his Proday. "Deandre had a really good day today,” Dimitroff said. “He’s quick, fast and explosive. He can run. Cover the field. Very good range that way. He’s being (mentioned) as one of the best in the country in the draft. It will be interesting to see how that plays out." The Falcons are one of the team said to be interested in him. 

I was going to take him out of the 1st. "He’s a competitor," Smart said. "He’s physical. He runs well. He’s played in a system [where] he could play multiple coverages. We asked him to make a lot of checks. He’s going to be a really good pro player." He should have been a top half of the 1st Round player, but his Combine was terrible.  

03/2019: He did not have a great Combine. It is going to cost him in this Draft. But he was injured and didn't participate in every drill. He has to blow up his Proday. 

07/2018: He can get physical with his hands in Press at the LOS. He has the hips and speed to turn and run with anyone down the sideline. He can make a play on the ball when the WR tries to break over the middle. Nice job shadowing and locking onto the WR outside. 

He gets back to the WR quickly in Off coverage, when the QB throws to him. Great feet moving backwards and then bursting forward. Still more elite athlete than elite Corner. Better in Press than off, where he can grab, turn, and just run with the WR. 

He has some great snap in his hips. No trouble turning and running instantly with WR down the sideline. He will give up some space to throw into when the WR breaks off the pattern and comes back to the QB. He will step out of Press, and play almost like a FS sometimes. 

2017 Tennessee: Love the snap in the hips. He is a more a dive at the legs tackler than a form tackler. Excellent job turning and running inside with the WR, and then stopping and getting back outside to make the tackle on the RB. He can take a false step forward off playaction, and still snap his hips back and run with the WR down the sideline. 

They use him in a lot of different ways with a lot of different techniques, but he lines up on the QB's left every time. I love when he gets low and aggressive in Press. He is more of a finesses Press guy sometimes, but he can get physical with his inside hand sometimes. He can make the play on the WR and the ball 40-yards down field. 

I like how he locks onto the WR at the exception of everyone else. Nice jam with his outside hand on the outside release in Press. Solid tackler. Not a big help in the run game inside, but he protects the sideline with some nice tackling. He moves back sideways to watch the QB and WR with interesting speed.

*Drew Lock- 6-4, 220, #3

QB 

Missouri

07/2018: I took a late look at him last season. I only watch three games, but I really liked what I saw. He has all the tools in the toolbox. He just needs some more development mentally, and to get the hell out of that QB-killing Red-Raider offense, and fast.  

Like Brady, he is not a good dancer. "When the head coach is mocking your dance move you must be doing something right," Lock said. "You’re not a nobody. You’re definitely doing something that’s catching other people’s attention. I would have been like, 'Damn, coach is balling with us." But when your winning you can do any damn dance you want, even a Dude Chicken Dance, lol (it looked to me like the HC was doing a bad imitation of a bad dance, and not mocking him at all?). 
The most important thing to know this off season is that the HC changed the offense to a Pro-Style offense. "This is exactly what I want to experience," Lock said about the new Pro-Style Offense. "I want to be able to speak ball. I want to be able to talk NFL stuff with NFL people and I wasn’t going to be able to do that." It is the HC's job to win, not to run Pro Style stuff.

But Damn! They could help these kids develop a little more. "It's more complicated of an offense, but I do think it’s easier," Lock said. "It was a little more guessing games last year, on what I thought receivers were going to run. And this year I have it set in stone what they're doing every single play. It makes me a lot more comfortable back there. I know exactly what's going on." With QB's of his talent, it is all mental for him.

So he made the right decision coming back. "Coach Odom told me he wanted the best decision for me. If I was declaring for the draft, he would support me," Lock said. "But he also said If I thought about returning, he would involve me in the search process [for a new OC]. That’s when Coach and I really developed a deep bond." They went to the NFL to get a guy who coached in an NFL offense.

This is the third system Lock has learned in four years. "I decided Coach Dooley could really help me prepare for the NFL, he had worked there for the past five years," Lock said. "I used to worry about learning a new offense. But now I realize it’s going to give me great experience. How many other college quarterbacks know three offensive systems? I bet not many." It is all mental for him, and learning multiple systems does nothing but help him mentally. 

And if he shows he can grasp his third system, an NFL System, he will be the first QB taken in this Draft. "Drew is very creative, a free spirit, and I would be a fool to box him in," Dooley said. "I coach like I parent. If you spend all your time telling them what to do, they don’t reach their potential as people or players. You have to let them think for themselves. My job is to guide them. He wants to be a pro someday. I treat him like a Pro, treat him like a man. He’s earned that." Or, he could slip down to the Patriots.

02/2017: Lock is a young strong armed spread QB. He may or may not be coming out. But if he does the Pats should be interested. Brady is showing some wear and tear this season, and the Pats will have to draft a young developmental QB in this Draft (He has my "I'd like him on the Pats" seal of approval;). 
He has not decided whether he is coming out yet or not, but most seem to think that his HC leaving will prompt him to leave for the NFL Draft (his HC stayed;). "Not too much," Lock said, "At the beginning, it was all coming out, [everyone said] 'Heupel left, so Drew’s leaving now.' But really I’m on the same course as to making a decision. It (isn't) a huge factor in my decision." He could be on the Board between 30 and 40. 
Smart kid who has played in two different offences in three years. "It speaks a lot to have a quarterback who comes in and learns three different systems as far as being able to relay that at the next level," his OC in 2015 John Henson said. "If a guy does come in here with a brand new offense, with the players we have and the mindset I would have going into it, I think we’d be just fine." There is a lot of turmoil in Missouri right now.
I am in the crowd that thinks he's gone (and I was wrong;). "We run the same plays with Drew that we do with Maty," Pinkel said. "[Lock] moves in the pocket well. I think he has pretty good instincts back there. He doesn’t have Maty’s foot speed, but not too many quarterbacks do. But again, he’s got to be who he is." He can take the big hit, and complete the next pass.
He also throws well on the move. "(Lock has) that playmaking ability, the understanding of spacing, the understanding of where the ball is going to go," Thomas said. "He’s a competitor. It’s almost, for people to understand it, it’s what Johnny Manziel does with his teams. When he steps on the field, you always feel like you have a chance to win." TMIWTMIL 

07/2018 Vs Auburn: He is playing against a much more talented defense in this game. A top five College defense. He has the head fake (:01). He played in a gross flat-footed offense last season, but did you see his nice quick three-step drop there. There is hope in Whoville (:09). You always have to look at Spread QB's feet to see if they instinctually move them, when the offense doesn't call for it.

Watch the flat footed feet. They don't move an inch. He hops to the side for the I-N-T. There is a huge difference between playing Auburn and East Kalamazoo school of Hair Design. And a gigantic difference moving up to the NFL (:20). 3rd and 7, he didn't panic as the pocket collapsed around him, and picked up the First (1:21). Then he threw to the right guy, as the CB had to grab him to stop the pass. 

3rd and 10, he completed the pass to the inside screener (1:49). He smartly dumped the pass into the dirt as the screen was overwhelmed, which set up 3rd and 10. He looked to his second WR and threw it low and outside, away from the defender. That was a great NFL 3rd down throw that his WR has to catch (2:35). 3rd and 3, he rolled out against the intense pressure and hit his guy for the First (3:01). That is three straight NFL throws on 3rd down, against maybe the top College defense last year (only Alabama can claim better;).

3rd and 6, nice drop. When his feet are under him in his drop, he has better accuracy. Fourth great throw on 3rd down (3:54). Please don't run. OH! Now that was a great brain scrambling hit (4:36). This might be the most important throw for his NFL potential. He took the gigantic hit, the helmet to facemask devastating hit, and it is 3rd down (4:54). This is the next play after the brain scrambling hit. I like the Brady pop up after the big hit, like he liked it. Oh! He found a receiver but was wiped out as he threw. That was a shame. I really wanted to see if he could complete that pass.

After all that failure, hits, and scare (that it was a fumble), he completed his next pass on the next series. That was a great NFL throw (5:55). 3rd and 5 or 6, Great NFL throw to the slot guy on the curl In. That made him 4 for 5 for four Firsts on 3rd down (6:50). Nice throw away to get to 3rd and 8, but the RB was covered on Screen. Nice grounding: 5 for 7 on 3rd down (7:54). Oh, 3rd down again. 3rd and 3, he dumped it off to the wing for a hope and a prayer. 6 for 8 for four Firsts. 

And the game just got ugly after this. I didn't mean for this to be a manuscript on the life and folly of Drew Lock. It was suppose to be a quick tape. But you were able to see a lot of great aspects of Lock's game, on 3rd down, against the closest thing to an NFL Defense there was last year. He needs to show improvement in the new Pro-style offense. But he did show he had some clutch in him on 3rd down. Which is a must have first step to developing into an NFL QB (I mean, after all the physical traits that we know he has;).

*Josh Jacobs- 5-10, 216, (O) 4.6, 

RB

Alabama

11/2017: He made a ton of money in the College Playoffs. "Josh is a different sort of cat for us being a quick, explosive, fast guy," Saban said. "He’s been not healthy all the time, but I think as a change of pace to go in there to do what he did tonight was probably the whole spark for the whole team. Just his competitive disposition about how he ran the ball, second effort, I think affected everyone out there. That was probably a good thing. He was very, very productive and very effective for us." He was the toughest and most physical runners in the SEC last season. 

Amazing blend of power, balance, and elusiveness. "This guy is one of the finest people, hardest workers. Never complains about how many carries he got, how many passes he got, how many plays he played," Saban said. "When you say, 'You're in,' he's excited and big eyes to get in there. You just love to have guys like that on your team." He was the best RB in the Playoff this year. 
Loves to make guys miss, and can punish them when they don't. "I try to mix it up," Jacobs said. "I try to run people over some times, and then juke them. I want to keep them on their toes." Clutch runner,  and part time RB most of his career, and still has a lot of tread on the tires. 

Guys bounce off his powerful legs like frogs off tires. "The beginning of every game," Jacobs said. "I just want to hit somebody just for myself to get the butterflies out," It is amazing how many times it looked like was tackled by more than one defender, and then he'd break out past them. 
He is similar size, and reminds me of Emmitt Smith. "He's playing unbelievable football right now," Damien Harris said. "Yeah, he does things he gets a lot of credit for, like scoring touchdowns and making big returns in the return game, but he also does the dirty work that no one really sees. Someone who does all those things and not ask for more credit than what they're getting gets a lot of credit amongst the team." The Pats might have to take him if he is on the Board at 32, even thought they took Michel in the 1st last year.

*Jawaan Taylor- 6-5, 328

ORT

FLA

03/2018: This is a tough one for me. He plays Right Tackle. HE only gave up one Sack. I have trouble putting an ORT in the 1st Round. I like Taylor, Risner, and Ford, but why take one of those three when you can get one of the other ORTs in the 2nd, or even Edwards in the 3rd. He had 35 starts in three seasons at FLA. He looked like an NFL ORT in 2018. He could go top ten. Jags are showing interest at 7. 

Now I know there are more team that are putting pure speed rushers on both edges. "I think all-around he’s gotten better at his game with his hands, with his feet just learn to bend, learn to bounce and all those things that he needs to learn to do it," FLA OL coach Hevesy said. “No one’s perfected anything, so to me it’s just keep getting better in everything he’s doing and find your weaknesses and correct them." I just re-watched the FLA vs. FLA St game, and did a great job against Burns. 

However, rumors persist that he is going in the 1st. The good news is that he did start two games in 2017 at OLT. He struggled a little moving backwards against FLA ST on the left-side. His techniques were not as good. You could really see the hands down and out wide for balance on the left-side to start the game. His technique was better on the right-side in 2018. His slide was not as good on the left-side. 

Having Taylor on the Edge against Denver is one reason to take Taylor. He over-set on the left and gave up the inside too much. Lost to left-side speed a lot. He moved smoother backwards in the 2nd half. I did not like his technique on the left. He lost to Burns on a speed rush, because his hands were down. Gave up the inside too much. 

2018: Declared for the NFL Draft following the season… Played in all 13 games and started 12 at right tackle… Florida's offensive line allowed just 18 sacks over the course of the entire season, which ranked 20th in the country and third among SEC teams… Garnered Second Team All-SEC honors from Athlon Sports… Named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll… 2017: Played and started in all 11 games… Started the first nine games at right tackle and the final two contests of the season at left tackle… He and Martez Ivey were the only two Florida offensive linemen to start each game… 2016: Played in all 13 games throughout the season and started 12 at right tackle… Was the only Florida freshman to play on the offensive line… Garnered Freshman All-America honors by ESPN.com, FWAA and Pro Football Focus… Selected to the Freshman All-SEC Team by the leagues Coaches’ and Gridiron Now… Member of ESPN All-SEC Bowl Team..

*N'Keal Harry- 6-4, 218, 33"Arm, (0) 4.53, 10'2"Br, 38.5"Vert, 27 Reps, 

WR

Arizona State

10/2018: He is the best WR in this Draft, by far. Some offensive players are going to get drafted in the 1st Round, He will be one of them. "It'll be great to have coach Likens back," Harry said. "He's a good coach who has helped me a great deal." It has really showed on the field this season. 

He was phenomenal against Michigan State. He might have been the best offensive player in college in week Two. They kept going to everyone else, and then coming back to him on 3rd down. His QB just wanted to go to him in the clutch. Great release of off the snap. His inside release gets him wide open behind the CB, which brings safeties over, and opens things up for Teammates inside.
This cat can really move. I watched him for five minutes and he was instantly my new Number One WR. "I feel like I've grown a great deal during the last two years," Harry said. "This year, I got better at catching contested balls, at running better routes. I just want to help the team win, help the team get better. But there is still room for growth. The work never stops." He is one of those guys that just moves faster and quicker than everyone else on the field. 
The QB kept going the other way. Until it was 3rd and 20, and he finally turned to his left and saw Number One standing there. He threw it to him as he broke inside. Harry caught it above his head effortlessly, with the CB now tangled in his legs. 
He made the catch look so easy. The ball way above his head, and the Corner was in his feet. Once of the best catches I've ever seen made to look easy. "That doesn’t surprise me with N’Keal, though," Herm Edwards said. "All the work that he puts in after practice. It’s important to him to play well. He loves the competition, loves the spotlight, loves the lights. He doesn’t run to the shade. He wants the light on him. He likes to perform in big-time situations." He caught it short, so they never replayed it and went to the punt. Remarkable. 
He looks the part. "It's rare, but here again, he's a talented player," Edwards said. "And I saw that when he was in high school, when I had him in the Under Armour game, He’s different. And you can tell he’s a guy that’s going to have an opportunity to extend his career beyond college." The announcers compared him to Julio Jones, 

And I dig that comparison. He won't run a 4.3 like Julio. He looks like a 4.4 guy to me. He has that knack for getting open deep. But he can break it off the pattern and catch it short. Good fighter on the edge blocking. He has the size. He can put the CB on skates. 
OVERVIEW: Named to 2018 Biletnikoff Award Watch List (July 19, 2018). Named to 2018 Maxwell Award Watch List (July 15, 2018).

Jeffery Simmons- 6-4, 310, #94

DT

Miss ST

09/2018: A devastating injury will propel Simmons into Day Two. "I just want everyone to know that no matter what, God makes no mistakes. He is preparing me for GREATER things ahead! He has shown me so much in my life these last couple of years and is the time for me to NOT give up!" Simmons wrote. "I will undergo surgery early next week and then begin the rehab process. I am going to come back stronger and more determined than ever. If it is in God’s will, no matter which team drafts me this April, I will work extremely hard to get healthy and become a leader in that organization." I think he's a 3rd Rounder now. 

09/2018: He has all the physical traits you want, but he has to prove he has that knack for hitting the quarterback. He is sometimes so explosive off the snap that you think he is a lock First. However, it seems when he has to slow to read he gets in trouble. He has to trust his instincts more. 

He played on the Nose a little against Arkansas. He can stuff the run as the NT. He got penetration lined up on the Nose as well. Then they moved him to 3-Tech. He did a good job powering blockers back to the QB. Needs to shed better. He also lined up at 4-tech, and drove the OLG back into the QB as he threw. He beat the ORG at 3-tech with a great swim, but grabbed the RB on the play-action.

He has great long arms. He plays well at arms length. He can rip around the OLG like a bouncing cannon ball, and smash right into the RB in the backfield. He has a great blast off, but doesn't use it consistently or always know what to do with it. Playing two-gap hurts him a little. He is much better one-gapping. 

Plays the run first, and it really hurts him on the play action. Terrific stunter to the inside. He can get to the QB rolling away from him through the triple, and hit him as he throws. Terrific job moving laterally with two OLs clutching and grabbing him to get to the RB on off tackle runs. He holds a lot of value for one and two gapping teams.

**Byron Murphy- 5-11, 190, (O) 4.55, 10' Broad, 36.5"Vert, 14 Reps, #1

CB

Washington

02/2019: He turned into a great player during the season. He was the best Corner in college football the second half of the season. Terrific ball skills. Nice feet to turn and run with the WR, while looking back at the QB. He can track the ball like a WR. Great instincts. Great feet moving backwards against an inside move, and staying in pedal as the WR tries to beat him outside. 

Guys who have the speed to run while half turned make great CBs in the NFL. "If he keeps working hard through the spring and summer, he’ll be an exciting guy come fall," Petersen said. "If the ball's around him he's got a very good chance of making a play on it." He is terrific moving backwards. 

This kid has elite feet and balance. "To have Byron back is huge," Taylor Rapp said. "When he went down it was a major loss for our back end. To have him back, it's been unbelievable. He's an unbelievable player. He is so talented and has such great ball skills. To have him back in the secondary, it's been great." He was their best player in the second half of the season. 

He was great in the Big-12 Champ Game. He had two INTs (one a 66-yard return for a TD), and was named the MVP. He garnered 4 INTs, 17 PBU, a FF, and 58 Tackles on the season. But it is his eyes, hips, and feet that could make him a top ten pick, if he runs in the low-4.4s or under.

*Trayvon Mullen- 6-1, 195, (O) 4.46, 10'3"Broad, 34.5"Vert, 31"Arms, 

CB

Clemson

03/2019: He played a lot of different coverages. FLA loves to switch coverage not only every play, but right before the ball is snapped. So he'd line up in Press, and bailed to play Off or zone right before the snap. Or he'd line up in Off, and charge the WR to Press him right before the snap. Or switch to the Slot guy right as the ball is snapped. Very tricky in coverage. Very smart in coverage. 

Great physical specimen on the field. Elite quicks and COD. He moves as well in coverage as anyone I've seen. But he still is more of a finesse CB, despite his size. He will get physical in coverage occasionally, but he is a straight up finesse press Off-man guy. He can occasionally make the great tackle when he is in Press, but he is mostly avoid the pileups at all cost guy. He knows his money is going to be made as an elite mover in coverage, and not a run stopping DB. 

Combine: He had a bad start on his second forty. He had a great Champ game. He garnered an INT and a Sack. Pedal was too high. Rushed it again. Smooth hips on half turns. A little tight in full turn. He can high point the ball. Nice adjustments, Nice click and close. Good acceleration out of break. No drop in first gauntlet. No drop in 2nd gauntlet. 

2019: Declared for the NFL Draft following a three-year Tiger career in which he posted 94 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, three quarterback pressures, four interceptions, a forced fumble and 12 pass breakups in 1474 snaps over 41 games (26 starts) in his career … second-team AFCA All-American in 2018 who earned College Football Playoff National Championship Defensive MVP honors in the final game of his career … entered 2018 ranked as the No. 49 player in the nation in the preseason by NFL.com and No. 63 player by Sports Illustrated
2018: Second-team ACFA All-American … second-team All-ACC … second-team AP All-ACC … third-team All-ACC according to Phil Steele … credited with 37 tackles (4.0 for loss), four pass breakups, two sacks and an interception in 701 snaps over 15 games (14 starts) … started each of Clemson’s first five games, recording at least one tackle in four of the five contests … limited by injury to two snaps at Wake Forest … recorded two tackles in helping hold No. 16 NC State to 193 passing yards … contributed five tackles and a pass breakup at Florida State … added one tackle and a pass breakup vs. Louisville … made a season-high six tackles and broke up a pass at No. 17 Boston College … collected a tackle and a pass breakup against Duke … contributed five tackles vs. South Carolina … added a tackle in Clemson’s ACC Championship Game win against Pitt … contributed five tackles in helping hold No. 3 Notre Dame to three points in the Cotton Bowl … earned Defensive MVP honors in the National Championship Game against No. 1 Alabama, collecting six tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and an interception, which he returned 46 yards to set up a Tiger touchdown drive

Jerry Tillery- 6-6, 295, 34 1/4"Arm, (O) 4.93, 23 R, 32" V, 9'7" Br, 7.34 3-C, 4.33 SS 

3-Tech/DT

Fighting Irish

03/2019: He was the best DL in the first half of the season. Then he disappeared. But it was because he got injured. When you look at the Tape of him in the first half of the season, he looks like the best DT in this Draft. He had a great Combine to remind everyone of the rare and great size-athlete that he really is. 

02/2019: He was the best 3-Tech in college football, with elite size, in the 1st half of the season. Then he disappeared. He got injured and teams started doubling him more, which freed up the LBs and made them look good. He is a giant DL in the size that BB has been picking up lately to play inside. He could go to the Pats in the 3rd if he lasts. 

07/2018: While both Oliver and Raekwon Davis have struggled with production this season, Tillery has been a beast. "His impact as a leader in our football program has probably elevated itself," Irish HC Brian Kelly said, "because his worth ethic is so much better than it's ever been." Now I'm not saying they suck. 

But, this is the best DL Draft ever. If you want to go top five? You can't just look the part. "He’s virtually unblockable at the 3-Technique for us," Kelly said. "He’s a very difficult player to play. We’ve put him in a great position from a football standpoint." You also have to produce some serious numbers. 

He has 7 sacks already, and is leading the Nation. "He’s growing up," Kelly said. "I think he would tell you that his time here at Notre Dame has been extremely formative for him. It’s been a journey for him." When you have a 3-Tech his size (who can also play the Nose) that can hit the QB like that, you have something very special. 

He is big, quick, and strong. "So the 3-(Tech) really just gives him the ability to be a penetrator," Kelly said. "The 1-(Tech), you obviously have to anchor a lot more. We want to use his quickness, his ability, his length to create a new line of scrimmage. He’ll be difficult to block at the Three." He knows how to use his blast off and hands to get to the QB.
He looks like a traditional 5-Tech, but he is penetrating and destroying plays right off the snap, like a Warren Sapp 3-Tech. "This year, he’s been forced to be a leader much more than he has ever been at any time," Kelly said, "He’s one of our swat team leaders, So he’s been pushed out into a position of leadership, which requires accountability. It’s not like we snapped our fingers and he’s the best Captain we’ve ever had or the best leader. But he’s working on those [leadership skills]. And he’s getting better at it." At his size and length that is just incredible. 

HONORS AND AWARDS: Bednarik Award Watch List (2018). Outland Trophy Watch List (2018). Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List (2018). Moose Krause Lineman of the Year (2017). Notre Dame Defensive Newcomer of the Year (2015)
JUNIOR SEASON (2017): Saw action in and started all 13 games. Helped a Notre Dame defense that improved by at least 20 spots in the FBS rankings in third down conversion percentage, interceptions, rushing defense, scoring defense, passing efficiency defense, sacks, tackles for loss and turnovers gained. Irish were the last team in the FBS to surrender more than 20 points in a game (Irish allowed 20 points or less over each of their first eight games)
Notre Dame allowed only four plays of 40 yards or longer in 2017—the second-fewest of any team in the FBS. The Irish allowed only one play of 50 yards or longer in 2017—the second-fewest of any team in the FBS. Registered 56 tackles, 25 solo stops, 9.0 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, 11 quarterback hurries and one forced fumble. Led the team in quarterback hurries and sacks
.
Third on the team, and tops among defensive lineman, with 9.0 TFLs. Sixth on the team and tops among all defensive linemen in tackles. Registered a season-high seven tackles, including four solo stops, and one sack at Boston College (Sept. 16). Recorded five tackles and two quarterback hurries against Georgia (Sept. 9). Collected three tackles, 1.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one quarterback hurry against Miami, Ohio (Sept. 30). Registered five tackles, one for loss, and two quarterback hurries at North Carolina (Oct. 7). Recorded six tackles, all solo stops, a career-best three tackles for loss, one sack and two quarterback hurries at Stanford (Nov. 25). Registered four tackles, half a sack and one quarterback hurry against LSU (Jan. 1).

Here is a Tape of him at 5-Tech in 2016. He has been play 3-Tech, and shooting the gap right in front of the QB this season, like Sapp. He was a big beast inside, playing two-gap DL, and absorbing doubles to free up other guys. And he could still stack and shed the double team.

OC 

NC State

07/2017: Bradbury would be a great fit for the Pats, but they have Andrews. This guy is a much better athlete than Andrews. Pure Zone-Blocking OC. Elite athlete for an OL. Blew up the Combine.  He knows how to use leverage and hands to block the quicker DT. Tough and strong guy inside. He can bring the big DT to the ground in pass pro. He has the nasty. He will drive a guy into the dirt and jump on top of him. Elite getting outside on toss sweeps to hit the little guys on the 2nd level. 

Bradbury has great quicks. He is a great reach blocker. No one blocks on the move better than this guy. Nice job hitting and turning. Great balance and redirection when he gets beat a little. Plays and stays low. Remington winner. He gets real low, and pops up on hits. Plug and play OC. He made a ton of money at the Senior Bowl and Combine. 

He will go in the 1st to a Zone Blocking scheme team. 34 Reps was a great number for him, because he is such a rare athlete. Having that strength and commitment to lifting will lift him into the 1st. Quickest 3-Cone for OLs at the Combine. The Tape of this guy is phenomenal. His burst off the ball after the snap is incredible. His strength and balance in pass pro is phenomenal. 

AS A RS - JUNIOR (2017): A first-team All-ACC choice by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA), he won honorable mention honors on the official league team. Named the ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week for his performance vs. UNC, where he helped pave the way for 292 rushing yards. Played 98% of the Pack’s offensive snaps in 2017 (1,000 of 1,022 gradeable snaps). The Pack finished the season ranked second in the Power 5 in sacks allowed with just 13 in 13 games. A CoSida Academic All-District performer. Co-winner of the team’s Earle Edwards Award for top GPA. In for a career-high 103 snaps in the opener vs. South Carolina. Played through pain after a shot in the ribs early in the Louisville contest. Also earned the team’s Bo Rein Award for a vital contribution in an unsung role.

Johnathan Abram- 6’, 215, #38

SS/LB

Miss ST

09/2018: Love this kid. I would take him in the 1st no problem. "He’s a guy, after the game when it was very emotional and obviously a lot of guys weren’t pleased with the outcome, [He] stepped in front of the team before I had a chance to talk." HC Joe Moorhead said "I was proud of Johnathan for kind of stepping up and taking a great leadership role there. And letting the guys know there’s plenty to play for and plenty of things we need to do to improve," He has to show the speed at the Combine to propel himself into the 1st. 

Terrific run defender when lined up at the Sam and Will a lot "There’s a difference in being aggressive and playing fast," Abram said. "I just play fast. Aggressive people tend to get beat. And if you watch film, I rarely ever get beat. I assess what’s going on, identify the formation, and just make plays. When the ball is declared, I get to it." He can make plays after the WR catches it in front of him. 

He will destroy them on the 3rd down. "I take pride in being a leader," Abram said. "I’ve got some young guys that look up to me, and other guys who will turn to me in times of need. Some people are just natural leaders and that’s just my personality." Where ever they line him up he makes plays. 

He can lineup in front of the WR and miss the pass, but then spin around and make the tackle. He was more of an LB this past season, and he was one of the best in College Football. As the NFL moves closer and closer into pure Fantasy Football, they will need small LBs who can cover and hit the QB, like Abram.
2018 SENIOR SEASON: Regarded as one of the top defensive backs in college football … Saw action in 13 games with 11 starts – nine at safety and twice at star … Earned five All-America honors which included The Athletic (second team), Sports Illustrated (second team), The Associated Press (third team), CBS Sports (second team), American Football Coaches Association (second team) and Phil Steele (third team) … Also collected All-SEC first-team honors from the AP and second-team honors from the coaches … Led the team and ranked eighth in the SEC in tackles (99) … Filled the stat sheet with nine tackles for loss, three sacks, two interceptions, five pass breakups, one fumble forced and one fumble recovered … Was tops in the SEC and third in the nation in total pressures among safeties (16) according to Pro Football Focus … Five of his recorded pressures were QB hits, which led the SEC and tied for third in the country among safeties … His 99 tackles also were the most of any SEC defensive back … Finished with at least one tackle for loss in each of the last four games, including a career-high 3.5 on Senior Day vs. Arkansas (11/17) and totaled seven during that span … Closed out the regular season tops in the SEC among safeties with a 43.6 passer rating allowed, per PFF … Dominated the month of November with 31 tackles, six tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, one interception, a forced fumble and a recovered fumble … Averaged 8.4 tackles in conference games, which led all SEC defensive backs … Logged at least eight tackles in eight different games … His nine tackles for loss were the second-most in the SEC among defensive backs.

WR 

Ohio St

02/2019: He was the best WR at the Senior Bowl in practice all week. "I always knew I had hard work on my side," McLaurin said. "It was going to be pretty tough for guys to outwork me. I was pretty realistic with myself. I might I knew I may not be the biggest, fastest or strongest. But whatever they ask me to do, I’ll do it." He was timed with the fastest speed in pattern at the SB (I believe 23-MPH). 

He beat the Corners all week in pattern with speed. "It’s a little bit of technique, but it’s really effort and want-to and heart," McLaurin said. "If you want to get the job done, you’ll find a way. That’s the mentality I take. I know our team needs that out of our wide receivers so I try to provide that at a high level." He also showed great hands. 

He admitted at the Combine that he doesn't like to block, and doesn't always give the effort needed. "Parris has the speed. Ben [Victor] has the freakish ability. Johnnie can go over the top. K.J. has those hands, and Austin [Mack] has the route-running," McLaurin said. "I think I’m the guy who doesn’t necessarily get all the recognition, but I’m cool with that. I do whatever’s asked of me: blocking or making plays down the field." His mindset in blocking will have to change if he wants to be a Patriot.

But it sounds like it is something he can do. "He always has a game like that," Urban Meyer said. "It's a matter of us getting him the ball. He actually could have had more today. He broke loose a couple times. But Terry will go down as a Buckeye great. And there's so many unselfish things he does for this program and team." He had a huge game in the Big-10 Champ Game. 

Ohio State Overview: Terry McLaurin was an outstanding football player for the Buckeyes – he ranks among Ohio State’s top 15 receivers in four categories – and was an even better role model and leader off the field … he graduated in three-and-a-half years, in December 2017, with his degree in communications … a two-time team captain in 2017 and 2018, McLaurin was a part of Ohio State teams that won a national championship over No. 2 Oregon in 2014, Big Ten championships in 2014, 2017 and 2018, and bowl game wins over No. 1 Alabama (in the 2015 Sugar Bowl), No. 8 Notre Dame (2016 Fiesta Bowl), No. 8 USC (2018 Cotton Bowl) and No. 9 Washington (2019 Rose Bowl) … he also played in four victories over Michigan and was red-shirting during another victory … he improved every year as a player and capped his career with 35 receptions for 701 yards and 11 touchdowns during the 2018 campaign.

He had 100-yard receiving games as a senior against both Oregon State (121 yards) and Maryland (118) and he had multi-touchdown games against Oregon State, Indiana and in the Big Ten championship game win over Northwestern … McLaurin finishes with Ohio State receiver rankings of No. 6 in both single season (11) and career touchdowns (19), No. 12 in single season yards per catch (20.0 in 2018) and No. 13 in career yards per catch (16.7) … nothing short of durable, he played in every game between 2015 and 2018 – 54 total – and started 32 times … he totaled 75 career receptions for 1,251 yards … he was also an outstanding special teams player on punt coverage; one of the best in the nation, in fact … McLaurin scored three touchdowns in Big Ten title games at Lucas Oil Stadium in his home city of Indianapolis, including a game-igniting 84-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown in the win over Wisconsin in 2017 … he was invited to the Senior Bowl following his senior campaign.

A.J. Brown- 6-1, 225, #1, 

Slot-Guy

Ole Miss

02/2019: He is a big strong Slot guy who fits the Pats offense to a T. He should be available when the Pats pick at 32. But like Deebo, he fits what the Pat do more than any other team. He goes and gets the ball, with some Edelman-like fight in him, when the QB throws it to him. He was a Slot only guy at Mississippi. Plus, he can get down the Seam and make the big catch 40 or 50 yards downfield

07/2018: He has a long way to go. "A.J. is very, very driven," Matt Luke said. "He's a tremendous player. He's a tremendous competitor. And it's been fun to really watch him push the other receivers and other receivers push and continue to develop." He was a Slot WR last season. 

He is going to step up as an outside starter this season. "I'm looking for him to get one year better in this offense," Ole Miss HC Luke said. "I think continuity is huge. I think that's a big advantage we have coming back, is having the same coordinators on offense and defense, being able to keep that continuity and getting one year better." Good hands catching the quick ball naturally. 

He never seems to fight the ball with his hands. "He’s a very big guy,” MCU FS Mark McLaurin said. "You don’t find too many like him. He’s very physical and fast." Sometimes just a shover, but will block for his teammates. 

He will line up in both Slots, and rarely outside. "A.J. is very, very driven," coach Luke said. "He is a tremendous player. He is a tremendous competitor, and it's been fun to really watch him push the other receivers and the other receivers continue to develop." Catches it smoothly through contact. 

He can run over the DBs, and keep going. "I'm looking for him to get one year better, and in this offense, I think continuity is huge," coach Luke said. "I think that's a big advantage we have coming back, having the same coordinators on offense and defense, being able to get that continuity and getting that year better." He can make the great adjustment on the ball in the air. 

Fearless going over the middle. Pure slot guy in 2017.  "He's a phenomenal player, and they'll be people try and take him away," coach Luke said about Brown. "But we have D.K. and Lodge there as well. I'm really excited about the leadership that he brings to the table." Nice blend of size, speed, and hands. Strong and tough to bring down.
He is a big WR, who has great hands to go down low and snag the low and inside throw. "Offensively, we return eight starters off one of the top offenses in the conference," coach Luke said. "It all starts up front. Everybody knows about the D-lines in the Southeastern Conference. Up front we have 103 combined starts with our offensive line. We're very, very talented and experienced there. Our receiving corps is one of the best in the country. The N.WO. The Nasty WideOuts. It's very well documented and rightfully so. Those guys are very competitive. They push each other every day to be better, but they're also unselfish. We're really fortunate to have those guys." His final test will come this season. When they move him outside, and he is not just a slot guy anymore. 

07/2018: He was their slot guy (:01). He ran a lot of Slot patterns to get wide open last season (:22). He will turn out of his pattern and block for his teammates (:42). Great job getting open on Outs from the slot. Nice smooth hands catcher (1:01). He can make guys miss with the ball in his hands (1:12). He will turn up field and give a nice thump block, for the WR who catches the ball behind him (1:22). I like his hands (2:06). He is not an easy guy to bring down. 

He can make the great catch through contact. Makes terrific adjustments to the ball in the air through contact. Watch this catch (2:35). He will give fake effort on blocks sometimes  (2:49). But then will come back and make the nice physical block (3:01). He is so good going over the middle, and catching the ball away from his body through contact (3:17). He is just a shove-blocker sometimes (3:33). More consistency on blocking would be good to see this season. 

9.7 Slot Guy

Austin Bryant- 6-5, 265, #7

OLD/DE

Clemson

11/2017: He has incredible size and speed for, huh, anybody. "It’s just hard to find guys that are 260, 280, 300 that move the way that they can," Hale said. "There’s not many out there, and Clemson’s got four of them." Clemson has three DLs who should be 1st Round picks in this Draft.

Bryant has been having a great season. "One of the funniest things is, I think their best lineman or most productive one so far has been Austin Bryant," Hale said. "And he was sort of looked at as the other guy on the line." He has a nice second bust, when he slows for the play action, and then bursts again upfield when he sees it. 
He uses excellent hand technique. "One thing we’ve been harping on these past few days is sprint into the bye week, not limp into it," Bryant said. "We really want to finish the first half of the season out strong. And then going to the bye week, we’ll get our legs back up under us and get ready for a sprint to the finish line. Any opportunity you get to play, you have to take advantage of it." He still falls for play action a lot. 

He has been playing on a sprained ankle. "We felt like we weren’t going to hold anything back," Bryant said about playing on his bad ankle. "I told the coaches I was ready to go and it didn’t feel like I was [had] strain. I didn’t feel like I was going to be limping out there. That was the game plan and we ran with it." I like how he sets the edge, and still get in on the tackle. 

The whole team got a jolt when they were upset by Syracuse. "We just wanted to get that swagger back on both sides of the ball," Bryant said. "There was a lot of self evaluating. It was just us telling everybody, 'Just stick together. Don’t let that [horrible] moment define us.' We know what type of team we’ve got." Great job changing direction when the RB cuts back, and he can still take him down.

Be A Citizen! Not a Subject! 

Fascist is as Fascist does. Beware American. President Fredo is pulling the cowardly republican Senate closer and closer to the cliff.

Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances:

#

The 1st Amendment to the Constitution is the greatest paragraph ever written by mankind. It is the truest diagram of how to ensure a free Country of citizens survives. But is is also a list of what to attack when you want to be a fascist dictator. President Jerkballs is attacking every article in the 1st Amendment. Beware subjects, or you will be subjugated:

The Barr Report is treason. Barr has will go down in History as the most corrupt AG

EVER. 

 

History will judge him as a traitor to the rule of law, which he swore to protect.

 

History will judge all the suckers who are pretending that the Barr report

IS the Mueller report as ignorant FOOLS. 

 

WE HAVE NOT SEEN THE MUELLER REPORT BECAUSE BARR

IS ILLEGALLY withholding it,

 

Because it "does not Exonerate him."

 

I love how suckers are pretending it exonerated President Treason, 

when the one quote we got was"

"But this report does not exonerate him."

That was literarily the one quote the traitor to History put in his

phony baloney report. 

It's time to grow up suckers, before you have to salute President Putin.

Hey Trump, go pee in a hole!

 

BEWARE AMERICA! 

 

OUR DEMOCRACY IS DYING!

 

WE ARE NOW IN A "WORST CASE SCENARIO

SITUATION!

If you are still capable 

of being honest with yourself, 

this is the most important thing you will watch this year:

TRUE TREASON SLAPPING YOU IN THE FACE!
