*Dexter Lawrence- 6-4, 340, #90

DT 

Clemson 

07/2017: Lawrence is a 340-pound behemoth, who has the rare ability to get upfield at will. "I've never seen a guy this size who moves like this," Dabo Swinney said. "I've been around some big guys, but I've never been around a guy that big who is that athletic. He's just a huge, strong man. I mean, he was stronger than some of our seniors as a true freshman showing up." He is not a plodding clod.

Good stack and shed player at the point. Always seems to keep his hands moving as he moves upfield. He will duck his head to get low sometimes, but he will show some great power when he does. He will get high, and get pushed back by the double when he does. He has to stay and play lower. 

He is a guy who gets moving upfield fast, and cannot be stopped once he puts the OL on skates. "He has the tools to be the next Suh," a scout said. "First-overall talent. Good luck not watching 90." Terrific hands to impact the OL back, and grab shirt and control the OL to either side. 

Good job holding the point on short yardage. He starts off low, but gets high too fast and too often. The further outside he gets the less effective he becomes. But when he gets an OG on skates, he can skate him right to the QB for a Sack. He can grab the shirt of the OG, and just hold him in place in front of the RB. 

I like how he leads with his hands, and then uses the hand slaps as he stunts outside. "When I watched the Auburn tape," Swinney said (Hey! My notes here are from the Auburn Tape;). "I kept saying to myself, 'this is a true freshman?' This was his first college game! And he's as good as we got." He is so light on his feet. 

2016: Freshman All-American by ESPN and USA Today … ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year (media, coaches) … Defensive Rookie of the Year by Pro Football Focus … second-team All-ACC (media, coaches) … All-ACC Academic Team selection … shared Rookie of the Year honors defensively with Clelin Ferrell … produced 79 tackles, fifth-most on the team, in 643 snaps over 15 games (11 starts) … broke Clemson freshman record with seven sacks, while also tallying 9.5 tackles for loss … produced 23 quarterback pressures, the second-highest figure on the team … also had two recovered fumbles and two blocked kicks … notched 10 tackles in his debut at Auburn, with a sack and pass breakup … also played on offense, helping Wayne Gallman to a touchdown run … posted two tackles for loss against Troy … credited with six pressures by the coaches in 46-point win at Boston College, where he also contributed a fumble recovery … had a sack in win over NC State … posted a sack and five total tackles at Florida State, a 37-34 win for the Tigers … had five tackles, including a sack, against Syracuse … blocked a field goal and extra point in loss to Pittsburgh … had a sack in 21 snaps of victory over South Carolina … posted two sacks in ACC Championship win over Virginia Tech … had four tackles and two pressures in National Championship against Alabama.

07/2017: Watch the power to shove the OL back with his long arms. Then the agility to dance over the cut block, and still get all the way outside to help out. There are not a handful of 340-pound guys who can move like that (:05). Watch the power to get the OG moving backwards, into the Rip that scared Jackson out of the pocket (:14). You really don't want him to be a stand up rusher (:27). Even though he got through the double to make Jackson misfire to his open WR.

I believe this was 2016 (which was the Auburn game Dabo was talking about;). He just pops the OG back. He gets his inside shoulder this time, and causes the miss throw, and hits Jackson (:40). Watch the great straight arm with speed to power. The OL couldn't get a hand in this shirt. Lawrence was by him in a flash scaring the crap out of Jackson (1:05). See how he got both hands into the OL, and then got his legs driving. He just shoved him aside with his size, speed, and power. That was a hell of throw by Jackson (1:18). This is one of those "get better picks". He is expected to get better during the season, and start producing more stats with his elite movement skills (for a guy his size;).

Chauncey Gardner-Johnson-5-10.7, 210,(U)4.48, 36"V, 9'9"Br, 7.03 3-C, 4.2 SS,17 R

Nickel/Safety

FLA

03/2019The Pats gotta get this guy. Talk about Versatile. He can plays all the DB positions. (U) 4.48 is a 1st Round number for this guy. Great pedal. Smooth hips. He makes the impact plays that wins games. He has some snap in hips. I think he has some Corner in him. Loves the game. He cheated a little in bag drill. He is one of those guys that seems to move faster than everyone else on Tape. All out all the time guy, who wants to blow up every offensive player in sight. 

02/2019Chauncey is an extremely valuable DB in the new NFL. He is a Safety who can play Strong and Free, and step into the Slot as the 3rd Corner and shut the Slot guy down. Or even better he is really a Shut Down Slot Corner, who can step back and play Safety on 1st and 2nd down against base defenses, or step outside and cover the X or Y.

That allows the defense to stay in their Base defense on 1st and 2nd downs, and not have to worry about a team passing, which is more and more likely every year (hell, I don't think KC even runs the ball at all anymore;). Or stay in the Base defense against 3-WR sets, against teams that like to run in those set, like say? The Patriots. 

Every team needs a guy with his versatility in the secondary. He also has some clutch in him, as he garnered 2 INTs against Michigan in their 2019 Bowl Game (I watched it and I couldn't tell you the name of it, and don't care;).

2019 Vs. Michigan: He played in the slot a lot. Nice job coming off the WR when Michigan ran, and tried to get in on the action. Very light on his feet. Elite COD. A low 4.5 could send him to the 3rd where the Pats could pick him up. He can line up in the Slot with the outside CB in deep off, and shoot outside to take the outside WR, and confuse the QB (which led to a sack against Michigan). 

This guy has the quickest burst in COD of any Nickel in this Draft. It is easy to see why he is such a great Nickel. He will line up in off in the Slot as well, and look like a SS, but he picks up the Slot guy. Super aggressive in run game. He might be a 1st if his speed checks out (Any 4.4 will put him in the 1st). They will blitz him from the slot, and he can scare the QB out of the pocket. 

Amazing eyes to weave through the patterns in Trips, and get past the first two and shake off the Pick by the TE, and dive into the WR behind him and knock him back with an amazing flying tackle. This kid is the real deal. You can't block him. He ignores blocks, and slaps off hits like mosquitoes. He will drop back from the slot deep like a FS.

He was all over Michigan's Bubble screens all game. Super Slot Corner, who can run with the outside WR deep down the field. FLA likes to switch their CBs around after the snap onto different WRs. So he'll line up as the Nickel, and burst outside and take the X or Y, to confuse the QB. 

Very aggressive all the time, and barely skirts the PI rules a lot. He was my favorite DB to watch this year. He can play outside, if he has the speed. But he is so valuable inside playing all over the slot that I'm not sure you want him playing FS or Corner, as more and more teams have 3-Wides in their base offense. He shuts down everyone in the Slot, and can defend the run like an LB. 

He can grab the tipped ball that floats into the slot, and return it for a TD. His speed at the Combine will be interesting to see what Round he goes in, because he has everything else you need in a Corner athletically, including great eyes. He is also the most aggressive DB in this Draft. He is one of those rare athletes that looks like he is quicker and faster than everyone else on the field. He sees it and goes full speed straight to the ball all game long. 

Overview: Ended his collegiate career with 37 games played, nine interceptions, three INT returns for touchdowns, 12 pass breakups, 161 total tackles, 15.5 tackles-for-loss and four sacks… 

2018: Declared for the NFL Draft after his junior season… Played in all 13 games and started 12… Totaled 71 tackles, four interceptions (two returned for a touchdown), two pass break-ups, nine tackles-for-loss, three sacks and two quarterback hurries… His four INTs ranked tied for 16th in the country and tied for second in the SEC… After he snagged a pair of interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl against Michigan, Gardner-Johnson was named Defensive MVP... Also for his efforts he garnered AP All-Bowl Team honors… Notched his other interception returned for a touchdown on the first play of Florida’s contest against Idaho… Member of a group that helped UF lead the nation in fourth quarter opponent passing efficiency (66.25) and rank second nationally in fourth quarter opponent completion percentage (40.5).

Tytus Howard- 6-5, 322, 34" Arms, 21 R, (U) 5.02, S-1.81, 29.5" Vert, 9'1"Br,  

OLT

Alabama ST

03/2019:Dillard and Howard are the two most athlete OLT moving backwards in this Draft, and thus the two best OLT in this Draft. Howard will need a little more time, but he will be the 2nd best OLT from this Draft. He will go lower than he should, because he's a small school guy. In a few years he will be seen as a top five OL from this Draft.

His 3-Cone (8.34) and Short Shuttle (4.87) worry me a little. He has some speed to the outside. Nice flexibility turning the corner. He looked more bulked up at Combine than on Tape. Nice pop on the pull. Looked athletic in mirror drill. Man, he can just move. Laterally, sideways, backwards, He is an elite mover. Plug and play OLT. Great quick feet. Smooth moving laterally. 

I think he is a 1st Round pick at OLT. Which is so odd, the three top Tackles appear to be an ORT, and two small school OLT/ORTs (though Wash ST is probably not a small school). He looks like a plug and play OLT. He is very athletic. There are two or three NFL OLTs in this Draft, and he is one of them. Everyone else might be better at ORT or OG, or their talent level is in question. 

He is one of those ultra athletic OLs, who went to college as a tight end. Then he kept getting bigger and bigger. OLTs who were recruited as high school tight ends almost always succeed in the NFL. They almost always are more athletic than other OTs. His 34" arms is a 1st Round number. He is a Redshirt Senior. 
2017 (at Alabama State): Played and started all 11 games at tackle... Led team in pancakes, and allowed just one sack ... Helped team win five of their last six games of the season.
2016 (at Alabama State): Appeared in and started in seven games on the offensive line... Played in the first six games, before concluding the season against Grambling State.
2015 (at Alabama State): Appeared in eight games... Started on the offensive line in six contests... Helped the Hornets average 373.5 yards per game.
2014 (at Alabama State): Came to Alabama State as a tight end.

Lonnie Johnson- 6-2..1, 213, (O) 4.39! 7.01 3-C, 4.1 SS, 38"V, 10'9" Br! 15 R, 32.5"A

CB/FS

Kentucky

02/2019: Lonnie Johnson is one heck of a Prospect. But I don’t like how they play him. They drop him back like a free safety too much. He looks like a Press corner, but they kept having him bail back. But he can move. He can 3/4er, side-saddles, drop half turned however you want to say it, with amazing speed and agility. Very aggressive and physical in coverage, but doesn't like the rough stuff in the run game. Great feet and hips in coverage. 

He rarely seemed to turn completely and bail. He was always looking back at the QB and WR. He really looks the part. He looks like the prototype CB. He can get in a WR's grill in Man, and knock the ball and the WR down with a great hand hit. He can hit like a SS. If he doesn't make it at Corner, he could be a Pro Bowl Free Safety, if he wanted to hit RBs. He loves-loves-loves to blow up WRs, but he doesn't seem to want to tackle RBs sometimes. 

Both Johnson and Terry McLaurin are the two most troubling prospects for me. Both look like lock 1st Round talents at the Senior Bowl. McLaurin was uncoverable and ran patterns faster than any other WR at the SB. Johnson looked like a true shut down guy. But McLaurin said he hated to block for his teammates, and you can see him bailing on blocks on Tape. I have trouble getting over that (otherwise Pats at 32 all day and night). Johnson sometimes didn’t try and tackle RBs, and looked like he was avoiding the RB. Other than those glitches they are elite 1st Round talents. I don’t know what to do with that. 
Career: Former junior college player who spent two seasons at Kentucky (2017 and 2018). Started in 18 of 26 career games, including 18 in a row. Two-year totals included 64 tackles, 3.0 TFL (13 yards), 1.0 sacks, 12 PBUs, two blocked kicks, one interception and a forced fumble. Intercepted a pass in the third quarter vs. Penn State in the Citrus Bowl in 2018, the first pickoff of his career ... Also had a pass breakup and four tackles in helping UK claim its first postseason victory since 2009. Invited to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl where he charted four tackles in the game for the South. Had two blocked kicks in his career, a blocked extra point vs. EKU and a blocked field goal vs. Missouri in 2017. Had a career-high seven tackles as a junior vs. Louisville on Nov. 25, 2017. Graduated in December with a degree in community and leadership development.
2018 Senior: Started in all 13 games. Totaled 23 tackles, four PBUs, an interception and a forced fumble.

*Irv Smith- 6-4, 241,  #82

TE

Alabama

12/2017: This cat is built more like an H-back, but he might be the best blocking Tight End in this Draft. "Irv is a really good player. He's played well this year. He does all phases of what we do well. He's a good receiver, he's a good off-the-ball blocker, he's a good on-the-ball blocker," Nick Saban said. "He's got really good hands and he's fast enough to be a threat down the field. So we have some weapons, he's one of them, and hopefully we'll be able to utilize that because sometimes people lose that guy. The tight end is an easy guy to lose." You can see him make, dominate, and destroy defenders in every kind of block that an OC wants on Tape this season. 

I don't think he is 6-4. "It was a running joke for many years, because in his mind, he was always tall, he was always long, he was always quick,” Smith Senior said. "And of course, when you’re younger, in your mind you’re always going to be 180 pounds and this cat-quick wide receiver. [However} I’d tell him from Day 1 he was going to be a tight end, and he didn’t want to accept it." Likely 6-3, and some change, but I could be wrong. 

He is a great athlete in the passing game. "[He} is really, really dynamic with how he runs his routes, he’s very fast and he’s very strong," Tua Tagovailoa said. "He’s a very good (pass) catcher, as well. And if he was a lot skinnier than what he is now, he’d probably play receiver or something. He’s really that good." He showed in the Playoffs that he could run patterns to get open. 

But he might not have the best instincts running patterns. His receiving production is lower than I'd like. But he also stayed in to block a lot. He also stayed in to chip a lot, and then went out in pattern late. So he was the dump off option for the QB a lot. But he can get open in a variety of ways. 

He ran some nice patterns to the 2nd level, and caught everything thrown to him on the 2nd level. "(It was) like he was driving 30-40 miles per hour his sophomore year and he’s taken it to about 60-70 miles per hour now because he really understands what it’s like to play on this level,” Smith Sr, said. “He,s able play every down. He knows the difference between a blocking play where you need to dominate your guy, and a passing play when you have to go out there and run, get open, and make a big catch." I absolutely love this kids hands.   

He can look like a pure WR catching passes on the 3rd level. "Not that he wasn’t good before, but you can tell he’s really established his hand-in-the-ground blocking (technique), which is going to help in the future," Alabama TE Hale Hentges said. "Obviously, he’s been a really big deep-play threat since he first stepped on campus, but now he’s just making plays (all over). He’s realizing what potential he has and what ability he has, and I’m really excited to see where his game goes." Plus, he is a work out warrior who is said to be able to bench 450-pounds now. 

He is a guy that fits the Pats system and what they do. BB and Saban are friends, so if Saban gives him the thumbs up, he could be a Patriots next season. The Pats have a need for TE who can get open and run deep down the Seam to take pressure off of Brady, and Gronk if he returns.  
Junior (2018): Veteran presence in the tight end group with the ability to make big catches ... owns the Alabama single-season touchdown receptions mark by a tight end with seven ... earned second team All-America accolades from the AFCA ... selected to the All-SEC second team by the conference coaches ... finished fourth on the Crimson Tide with 44 receptions totaling 710 yards and his seven scores ... averaged 16.1 yards per reception ... 28 of his catches went for a first down or a touchdown with 11 totaling 20-plus yards ... selected as an offensive player of the week by the Alabama coaches for his efforts against Texas A&M. Auburn: Hauled in three catches for 27 yards in the Iron Bowl. Georgia: Totaled 35 yards on three receptions in the SEC title pairing ... recorded a first down on his 13-yard reception to extend the Tide’s game-tying drive before hauling in a 19-yard catch to move the chains and set up Alabama’s eventual game-winning score. Oklahoma: Caught two passes for 19 yards against the Sooners. Clemson: Registered four catches for 43 yards in the title game.

Elgton Jenkins- 6-4, 310, #74

OC

Miss ST

02/2019: Plug and Play NFL OC. 

Jenkins is the most versatile OL in this Draft. "I feel like it helped me out a lot," Jenkins said. "Coaches have kept putting me in positions to be successful throughout my college career. I went along with that and made the best with what I had." He has started games at every position except ORG, including 5 starts at OLT and 1 at ORT. 

He had 33 starts at Miss ST. "Just being here four or five years and knowing all the things that me and the senior class have been through. All the guys I came in with, to me, it’s a privilege to have one last chance to play with them again," Jenkins said. "It wasn’t like a group decision. It was basically something we just all felt like we wanted to do. This is our team. We break it down family or brothers, or things like that every day. So just being there and playing in the game, it just shows the love we have for one another." He also has had 25 starts at OC, and two at OLG. 

Needs to keep his hands inside. Nice power and balance. Elite power in his hands. He had the most powerful hands of the OLs at the SB. He wins in pass pro. He can move the DT to either side on the Dive with some great power. Played with much better balance at SB, after fighting through a bad ankle injury all season. Very underrated athlete. 

He is the best OC in this Draft. "You’ve seen some of the draft boards that have [him] ranked as one of the top centers in the country and I think that’s very warranted," Miss ST HC Moorhead said. "He has done a good job in the run game. As you can see, we’ve been able to do that very successfully, and he’s been pretty stout in protection, too. Elgton has done a fine job for us." He struggled as a Senior do to injury, but it would a big mistake to pass on him if you need an OC. 

CAREER: The No. 1 center prospect for the 2019 NFL Draft, according to ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr., who is also versatile enough to play every position on the line … Transitioned into the starting center role in 2017 preseason camp and shined as a junior … Played in 49 career games with 34 starts – 26 at center, five at left tackle, two at left guard and one at right tackle … Allowed only one sack over 762 pass-blocking snaps at center during his junior and senior seasons, per Pro Football Focus … Two-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll … Graduated from MSU in December 2018 with a degree in industrial technology.
2018 SENIOR SEASON: Started all 13 games at center … Recipient of the Kent Hull Trophy, awarded annually to the top offensive lineman in the state of Mississippi … Earned first-team All-America honors from The Athletic and fourth-team honors from Phil Steele … Played 773 total snaps, including 369 in pass protection, according to Pro Football Focus … Did not allow a sack through the first nine games of the season … Surrendered zero QB hits and only six total pressures … Committed just one penalty … Tied for the SEC lead in fewest total pressures allowed (6) among centers who played at least 200 pass-blocking snaps.

Cody Ford- 6-4, 338, #74

ORT

Oklahoma

02/2019: He is an ORT only. So I have a tough time putting him in the 1st. A team that takes him in the 1st has to be convinced that he can play OLT in the NFL. They like to run a lot of misdirection, and will pull the OTs to either side to hit guys in front or on the weakside. He has NFL size. He has NFL feet. Nice seal blocker on the Edge. When he gets his hand in shirt first he wins. Gets away with some sloppiness because of size and strength. But gets sloppy with his arms too much. 

He stays in a two-point stance almost all the time, and he keeps his arms down as he slides back. That worries me as well. He can get bulled by smaller Edge guys with speed to power, and they get under him. He is a guy I would pass on in Day Two, and he will not make it out of Day Two. So I'm not worried about him. He has to chicken wing his arms to speed sometimes. Squares up on speed rushers nicely. 
2018: First-team All-Big 12 selection by league’s coaches, second-team honoree by media ... AP All-America Third Team selection ... part of offensive line that won Joe Moore Award ... started at right tackle in all 14 contests.
2017: An Academic All-Big 12 Second Team honoree ... played in 12 games and made four starts ... started at left guard against Ohio State (9/9), Iowa State (10/7), Texas (10/14) and Kansas State (10/21) ... start at Ohio State was his first since breaking his leg against Buckeyes in 2016 ... did not play against Baylor (9/23) or Tulane (9/16) due to injury.

*Kyler Murray- 5-10.1, 195, Arms 28 1/2" Arms! #1

QB

Oklahoma

02/2019: Murray is a tiny guy who should instantly run to baseball and make himself a cool half-a-Bill. He makes Mayfield look like a body builder. However, he is much more electric with the ball in his hands than Mayfield. But just because Mayfield broke the trend of 6-foot and under QBs succeeding, doesn't mean that Murray can. 

He is also a one year wonder. "I don't have enough good things to say about him. He's phenomenal," the HC of TT Kingsbury said of the Oklahoma quarterback. "I'd take him with the first pick of the draft if I could. I know he's signed up to play baseball, but he is a dominant football player, and I would take him with the first pick." He struggled when he faced the size and speed of the Alabama Defense until they started going into prevent. 

However, he was the most dynamic QB in College football last season. "I think the guy is one of the most dynamic players that I have ever seen in college football in terms of his skill set,” Nick Saban said. “He can beat you with his feet. He's got great speed. He's very athletic. He's a good passer. They have an outstanding scheme that really challenges you defensively and takes advantage of his skill set in every way, which is pretty obvious by the production that they've had all season long in terms of their ability to score points, make explosive plays, his ability to make explosive plays and to distribute the ball in a way that all the other players on his team have an opportunity to make explosive plays." He signed a 4-Mil contract to play baseball 

He can use his feet in the pocket to get more time to go deep with his great arm. "Everybody’s talked about him as an athlete and how well he runs and how fast he is and all that kind of stuff, but the way he reads and understands the coverages and how he distributes the ball, when he distributes the ball, the timing of it [is striking]," Alabama's Co-DC Golding said. "And then based on the look we give him, we’re going to do some things to take some things away, and that’s when he beats you with his legs. Just how developed he is as a quarterback (was impressive while watching film). I was very impressed with his decision-making. Obviously he’s an unbelievable athlete. But based on the coverages and the scheme that he sees, he distributes the football most of the time where he’s supposed to and on time." He read defense and make all the right throws.
But it is inescapable that his body sized is built to play NFL baseball and not NFL football. "The guy is already the 9th overall pick in the Major League Baseball draft, and I think he'll probably be somewhere around the same spot if he chooses to go football-wise,” Riley said. “I realize there’s a lot that goes into that, what teams are selecting, what their needs are. But we just had a guy [Mayfield] go first overall the year before, and I think this guy is that kind of impact player and certainly a rare athlete. One of those [guys] that you very well may go through the rest of your career coaching and never have one like that again. He’s that unique." He would be more unique than Baker if he can make it in the NFL [Mayfield is 2-inches taller than Murray. 

And just because some college HC says he draft Murray with the First pick in the Draft, because he runs the same system as OK, doesn't mean shit.

*Erik McCoy- 6-4, 303,(O) 4.89, 33"Arms, 29 Reps, 31"V, 8'1"Br, 8.28 3-C, 4.62 SS

OC/OG

Texas A&M

04/2019: McCoy is a Red Shirt Junior. He is a beast in the middle He is a power block in an NFL conventional scheme. While Garrett is the best OC for a Zone Blocking scheme, Garrett is the best in a zone blocking scheme. McCoy is also smooth and agility and can play in a Zone blocking scheme. He can pull outside. He is a great reach blocker. Smooth moving back in pass pro. While primarily an OC, he started games at OG as well. 

He is a 1st Round talent, but I just have trouble putting OCs in the 1st. He can get knocked back by power, and then re-anchor and rebalance, grab shirt and move the big DT out of the play. He is tall for an OC, but he does a great job staying and playing low. Reaches too much, and can over extend sometime. 

Heavy hands, and he is constantly moving them. He can move guys back in run game. A&M liked to run behind him. Tough to move him back in pass pro. He can take the big hit that shakes his body and knocks him back and recover quickly. He is a plug and play OC/OG for 10 to 15 years. 

2018 (RS-JUNIOR): Started and was a team captain all 12 games, helping the Aggies gain 5,590 total yards … paved the way for the SEC’s leading rusher in Trayveon Williams … led the Texas A&M offense in gaining 500-or-more yards of total offense in five games … given the Offensive Unselfish Leader Award at the team’s annual banquet … named the SEC’s Offensive Lineman of the Week following Texas A&M’s victory over No. 8 LSU … named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List and the Allstate AFCA Good Words Team Watch List … given the Offensive Leadership Award, Offensive MVP Award, Junior Academic Award and Strength and Conditioning Offensive Aggie Award at the team’s annual banquet.
2017 (RS-SOPHOMORE): Started every game, lining up at center for 11 of 13 games and guard in the other two games … helped the Aggies average 406.8 yards per game with 155.6 rushing and 251.2 passing … assisted the offense in gaining 350 or more yards of total offense in eight games … helped the Aggies gain a season-high 382 yards on the ground in the opener at UCLA.

Ross Pierschbacher- 6-5, 309, #71

OC

Alabama

02/2019: Pierschbacher is a team Captain. He could go as early as the 1st, like Detroit did last year with Ragnow. He is so good at play action. He moves forward and grabs the LB and doesn't move. Nice initial burst at the DT, and can knock him into the endzone from the 1-yard line. I not sure he's a good as Ryan Kelly (2016 1st) or Ragnow (2017 1st), but he's damn close. 

Nice job riding the NT out of the play. They were running behind him a lot against OK in Playoffs. He is not nimble on his feet. He is not a good pulling guard. He is a move forward OC. Great job turning and sealing the DT to either side. He has forceful hands. Worked in the shotgun a lot, and I never saw a problem with the snap. Some one is going to steal him on Day Two. 

Senior (2018): An established and commanding presence along the Tide offensive front ... transitioned to starting at center for Alabama as a senior in 2018 (15 games) after making 42 career starts at left guard in his first three years at UA (57 career starts) ... his 57 career starts, including eight in the College Football Playoff, is a record for position players at Alabama (P JK Scott also started 57 games) ... blocked for 31 100-yard rushers across his standout career at the Capstone ... named a first team All-American by The Sporting News ... tabbed as a second team All-American by the Associated Press ... also earned second team All-America recognition from Sports Illustrated ... selected to the All-SEC first team by the Associated Press and the league’s second team by the conference coaches ... finalist for the Rimington Trophy, presented annually to the nation’s top center ... helped open holes for the 42nd-ranked rushing offense (198.4 ypg), the No. 3 scoring offense (45.6 ppg) and the No. 6 total offense (522.0 ypg) while providing time for the nation’s No. 1 pass efficiency offense (197.34) and No. 6 passing offense (323.6 ypg) ... the Tide’s offensive front also ranked eighth nationally and first in the SEC in fewest sacks, allowing just 1.0 per game ... earned Midseason All-America first team honors from the Associated Press ... recorded 36 knockdown blocks ... allowed only a single pressure while giving up just two sacks in 962 snaps ... first team preseason All-SEC accolades ... tabbed to the Outland and Rimington trophy watch lists entering his senior campaign ... earned SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week accolades for his play at Arkansas ... selected as one of the UA coaches offensive players of the week for his performances against Arkansas State, Louisiana, LSU and Auburn

Junior (2017): Named a First Team All-SEC selection by the Associated Press ... selected as one of the UA coaching staff's offensive players of the week for his play against Tennessee and Auburn ... named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week for his play against Vanderbilt ... helped anchor an offensive line that ranked second in the SEC and 13th nationally in rushing with 250.6 yards per game while also ranking second in the SEC and 15th nationally in scoring offense (37.1 ppg) ... the Tide was fourth in the SEC and 29th nationally in total offense (444.1 ypg).

Juan Thornhill- 6', 205, (O) 4.42, 11'11" Broad. 44"Vert, 21 Reps, 

SS

Virginia

02/2018: Thornhill is a SS with a lot of FS attributes, and is asked to cover in zone and man. When goes down hill to the RB, the whole pile falls backwards when he smashes into it. He can cover the RB out of the backfield, and crush him with a stinging collision. TMIWHTMIL (sorry, The More I Watch Him The More I Like him;).  

He will step up like a Sam in short-yardage/Goalline situations. Nice blitzer as the Nickel Corner in the slot. I think he can go in the 2nd, because he is such a good Cover Two Safety. You have to have a Safety who can stop the run on the field, who can also help in coverage. They will move him up closer to the line, and he finds the RB and knocks him backwards. He can get to the sideline from Cover One. 

He will line up as the Mike, and drop into coverage, and he can get outside and tackle the RB on the swing pass trucking down the sideline. He can play Cover One on the Weak side, and get over across the field and take out the RB running a screen on the Weakside. Nice blitzer from the up Safety position. 

He will play on the Strongside in Cover Three. He can pedal back 20-yard in Cover Two, and then stay behind the smaller faster WR on the post with great positioning, and a nice transition out of his pedal. His eyes get stuck on the QB too much. But his recovery to the RB is amazing.

AT VIRGINIA: 2018 - Started all 13 of UVA's games ... finished No. 3 in the nation and No. 3 in the ACC with six interceptions ... set a UVA single-season record for interception return yards with 141 ... led UVA with 98 tackles ... started the season-opening game against Richmond at the safety ... made one tackle and broke up one pass against the Spiders ... named ACC Defensive Back of the Week after the Indiana game where he made seven tackles, intercepted one pass and blocked a PAT, returning it for the first defensive extra points by a Cavalier since 1994 ... made nine tackles, all solo, against Ohio in Nashville ... also added 1.0 tackles for loss against the Bobcats ... made seven tackles and broke up one pass against Louisville in the ACC opener..

Jaylon Ferguson- 6-5, 259, #45

DE

Louisiana Tech

02/2019: He is a small school D-end who made a bit of a splash at the Senior Bowl. "[Senior Bowl] is a great opportunity because both teams coaching here are looking for pass rushers," Ferguson said. "I feel like I'm one of the top pass rushers in this class. And I get my chance to show that I'm coachable and that I can rush the passer." I was disappointed. 

Ferguson said he models his game after Khalil Mack. "I model my game after Khalil Mack," Ferguson said at the Senior Bowl. "He's an aggressive guy who can transfer speed to power and is a big, strong man. That's my game right there." He was not Khalil Mack or Marcus Davenport at the Senior Bowl. 

Both guys where much more advanced with moves and their hands. ''I feel like it’s an opportunity to put my face out there, let people know me personally," Ferguson said. "Also to show I’m good against other competition because despite my numbers, I’ve still got some doubts in my game, and I’m here to put all the doubts to sleep." He was banned from the Combine, because of a fight four years ago (NFL shows stupidity again). 

He will not be able to bully OLTs in the NFL like he did at Louisiana Tech. "They open the doors for players like me because they’ve been through it. They had the same chip on their shoulder that I’ve got on my shoulder," Ferguson said. "Even Khalil Mack, he came from Buffalo in New York. Now look at him, big time, big Khalil Mack. First, coming out of a school people couldn’t tell you where he went to school at, but now I think all eyes are on small schools when it comes down to pass rushers. Even last year with Marcus Davenport out of UTSA, he did the same thing. He opened a lot of doors for me, too, and I appreciate him for that." He is a freak physical talent, like Mack and Davenport. 

REDSHIRT SENIOR (2018): Started every game for the Bulldogs at defensive end while leading the nation in sacks with a school and C-USA record 17.5 on the season, earning him C-USA Defensive Player of the Year honors and four separate All-America accolades. Broke the all-time NCAA record for career sacks with 45.0 over the course of his Bulldog career, passing Terrell Suggs’ previous record of 44.0 with 2.5 sacks recorded in his final collegiate game in LA Tech’s win over Hawaii in the 2018 SoFi Hawaii Bowl (12/22). Broke the Louisiana Tech program record with 45.0 career sacks. Totaled 64 tackles (37 solo, 27 assisted), a team-high 26.0 tackles for loss, 17.5 sacks, 9 QB hurries, 4 pass breakups, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. Ranked 1st in the nation in sacks (17.5) and sacks per game (1.35), while ranking 2nd nationally and 1st in C-USA in tackles for loss (26.0).

*Hakeem Butler- 6-6, 219, #18

WR

Iowa St

02/2019: He runs a nice crossing pattern on the second level. He can reach down and snag the low pass at full speed. Great high ball catcher. He really looks the part. He is huge and fast. When he is on a roll he can look unstoppable. But he gets inconsistent sometimes. His hands get inconsistent sometimes. He is an excellent blocker on the edges. 

He got hurt in Bowl game. "Our entire program and the Iowa State community is thankful for everything Hakeem Butler accomplished as a Cyclone," Iowa State HC Matt Campbell said. "Not only has he cemented his legacy as one of our program's all-time greats, he is also leaving Ames with his degree in hand after just 3 and-a-half years. We can't wait to see Hakeem continue to achieve success at the next level." It looked like he got hit in the nuts. 

I can't wait to see him at Combine. "It’s a huge opportunity," Butler said. "The biggest stage for everyone to showcase their skills," He will block downfield when his QB takes off. 

He looses concentration sometimes and gets the dropsies. "I haven't even really thought that far," Butler said. "(Coach) Campbell and I always talk about living in the moment. That's the big thing here so I just go day to day, week to week. I haven't made any decision like that." If the opportunity is there, you have to think about it. But right now, I'm just focused on football." He can make the nice adjustment to the ball in the air, and stop and grab the under thrown ball as he falls down.
His mom died when he was young. "It was a tough life, but it definitely taught me so much that I don’t know if I would be standing here today if those things wouldn’t have happened," Hakeem said. "I wouldn’t have been at Iowa State if I wouldn’t have lost my mom. If she wouldn’t have missed those meals, I wouldn’t have the chip on my shoulder. The way I play so aggressive, so angry. I don’t know if I would be like that if I wouldn’t have went through that stuff. So, I’m thankful for everything I’ve been through." His hands are his biggest negative. 

2018: Second-Team All-American by The Athletic and College Football News … First-Team All-Big 12 by ESPN and a second-team selection by the Coaches and AP … member of the Biletnikoff Award watch list and a semifinalist for the Tyler Rose Award … All-Bowl Team by USA Today … recorded one of the greatest seasons by a wide receiver in Iowa State history, shattering the school record for receiving yards in a season with 1,318 … third in the nation in yards per reception at 22.0, setting a new single-season school record … tallied 60 receptions and nine touchdown catches, tying for second on ISU’s season list … ranked third nationally in 40-yard receptions with 10 … ranked ninth nationally in receiving yards per game (101.4) and 29th nationally in receiving touchdowns (9) … posted six 100-yard receiving games, tying an ISU season mark… ended season and career with a streak of 28-straight games with a reception, the third-longest string in school history.

Caleb Wilson- 6-4, 240, 33"Arms, (O) 4.56, 29"Vert, 9'5"Broad, 7.2 3-Cone, 4.4 SS 

TE

UCLA

03/2019: Wilson is a former high school QB recruited to USC. He understands offenses. He know show to run patterns to get open. He is an excellent blocker. He ran the second fastest Forty at the Combine. He was the most productive TE on the field last season. He also had a 5.2 3-Cone and a 4.4 Short Shuttle, which are not bad numbers for a Tight End. What more do you need to know? 

He can grab shirt and push the defender up and out of the rush in pass pro. "Just want to show I’m as good as anybody in the draft," Wilson said about his Combine performance. "Show that I’m a complete player. And I can block, and catch and run." He is not just a great hitter when blocking. 
Terrific in seam routes. "The people who make up the mock drafts really don’t make the decisions," Wilson said. Hey! WTF. "(Their predictions) can really get to you. So just focus on improving and you only need one team to fall in love with you. So that’s all I’m trying to do." He can get open breaking to either side. Knows how to curl the route a little to get inside or outside the Safety. 

His dad coaches for the Eagles. "He definitely prepped me on some of the interview-type things," Wilson said. "He gave me a heads up on how it is, and how the communication will be. How fast and up-tempo it is." He is a TE, not just an H-back. He has heavy hands. 

He is not a small TE. He is more physical than I thought. But he is still a great move blocker. He blocks inline as well. More of a hitter than a sustainer. But he can sustain blocks better than I remembered sometimes. Great job catching the ball in traffic. He is the best TE in this Draft with the blend of speed and production. Fant had better speed, but Wilson had more production. 

2018: Starter in all 12 games ... Led the team in receptions (60) and receiving yards (965), the highest totals ever by a Bruin tight end ...

*Greg Little- 6-6, 325, #74

OL

Ole Miss

02/2019: I'm just not sure he is an NFL OLT. He will be a great OLG in the NFL. That I am sure of. But he disappointed out on the edge too much for me. He has a lot to prove at the Combine. 

07/2018: He has good feet moving backwards. He has the prerequisite athleticism to play OLT in the NFL. "I can't lie and say I haven't," Little said when asked if he thought about the NFL. "But right now, I'm really focused on: the team, the (O)-Line, getting better as a person, getting better as a player, getting everyone else around me better. After the season, when that time comes, the time comes." He has to keep his hands high and tight if he wants to play in the NFL.

He goes wide with his hands too much. "I've challenged him this spring to make everyone else around him better," Coach Luke said. "Don't just be satisfied with being a good player but take a leadership role, get out of his comfort zone and make everyone else around you better." He can show some great quick feet moving backwards. 

He slides outside smoothly when the D-line slants to his side. "Greg is an extremely talented individual," Rawlings said. "He's athletic. He's kind of that special player to play with." Blocks down a ton on the DT.

He can make the big impact on short yardage. "I think it’s a learning process of getting your body to the most efficient weight that you can, and I think he’s found what he’s comfortable with," Luke said. "He came in maybe a little heavy then lost it all. (Strength) coach (Paul) Jackson has done a good job of building it back up, so he’s got good weight on right now. I think he’s right where he needs to be." He has to stay and play lower. 
If worse comes to worse he can move inside to OG, where has always been very effective blocking down on DTs and 5-Techs (:01). He can get to the 2nd level and grab the Mike (:15). He is so good at stoning the big DT at the line (1:03). Watch the quick twitch inside (1:11). Then the quicks to redirect and seal the DE behind the play. 

He blocks inside on the DTs a little too much for my taste (1:21). He blocks so well on the move (1:36). You can see some quick twitch in his feet moving backwards (1:55). He seems to get better as the game goes on. 

He will get his hands outside the shoulders sometimes. That has to stop (2:04). It's always better to see the feet from this camera angle. But you get a better look at his strong hands on this play (2:57). He does a little dance with his quick feet (3:10). He still has some technique issues to work on.

He has that weird skip inside, which bring him to the DL a little too high. You can see the DL get under him and jam him up with his outside hand. But Little is so strong and balanced that he still stones the DL anyway (3:19). He got a little flat footed, when the DE stunted inside (3:26). But watch the reactions as he turned and knocked the DT's block off. 

I'm not enamored with his kickslide. I think it needs some work, but he gets to where he needs to get too, and stops the rusher (3:35). He gets his hands on the DE, and not only powers him backwards, but drags him inside (3:42). Terrific position that forced the DE into the RB (3:51). Great position that doesn't even allow the D-end to turn (3:26). With OLs they can look less athletic sometimes, because of their size. But once he warms up, he doesn't give up anything on the Edge.

LB

Michigan

03/2019: He is a small LB. "There will be NFL defenses who pass on Bush due to his lack of size, but his ability to play fast and free as an outside linebacker should supersede those concerns," Zierlein said. "He will miss some tackles and get engulfed by blockers at other times, but his play strength and ability to run and cover are extremely valuable in today's game and should not be diminished due to a tape measurement." I have a tough time putting a sub-6-foot LB in the 1st. 

But he is a terrific athlete. "I don't feel like it, I know he's the fastest linebacker in college football," Rashan Gary said . "Having him behind me just gives me more security. Just going back and watching him on film. It's like, 'wow, he made that play? That's crazy. He came up and hit him that hard?'" But he also gets hurt a lot, and that is not going to get better in the NFL. He was not as good in 2018 as he was in 2019. 

He is a tackling machine. An (U) 4.44 is huge number for him. "Devin Bush is one of the fastest linebackers I've ever been around, or seen," Harbaugh said. "His play, his work ethic, his leadership, his enthusiasm [are] all at the highest level." He has to run fast. 

He is explosive in the middle of the defense. He has to be the leader as well. He is small, and will have to find those cracks to the ball. He is as fast to the ball as anyone. He can also drop and cover. Strong upper body. Smooth moving side to side.

This is a tough one for me. He is too small for me to take in the 1st. But it seems like a lot of guys see him in the 1st. His (U) 4.43 Forty was a great number for him. He can bring that number out in coverage. He can find the cracks to the RB. He is terrific in coverage. Maybe he is more the modern LB than I can stand.

Chris Lindstrom- 6-4, 310, #75

OG/OC

BC

02/2018: Lindstrom is a Pancaking run blocker. "He's dominant in these three, four days of camp" BC HC Steve Addazio said. "He's developing into being an elite offensive lineman. Honestly, he's as good as there is in the conference right now. I think that will show to be true at the end. He's very competitive, very tough guy." He played OC and OG at BC. 
When he gets moving forward he is merciless. "We have four guys going to the Senior Bowl, and it’s tremendous," Addazio said about Lindstrom and Allen. "I don’t think any of them were five-star [recruits], and in fact, I’m sure none of them were four stars." He has developed into a Day Two prospect over the past four years. 
Great hands and balance in pass pro. "They are really smart, tough, talented, hard-working guys that have worked their tails off for this program, and now they are going to the Senior Bowl," Addazio said. "That’s a great thing, and I’m really proud of them, and I’m really happy for them. What a great opportunity, so I’m jacked for all of them." Both are characterized by toughness, hard work, and smarts. 
He can get to the 2nd level and destroy the LB. "I'm excited that we have the opportunity to play in a bowl game against a great program like Boise State, playing in the Cotton Bowl,” Lindstrom said “It’s going to be a great venue, and I’m excited for our team to get its eighth win." Great job on the hop pull to destroy the LB in the hole. 
He is so good at getting low and holding on. "We play in one of the best conferences in the country, but there’s great teams everywhere, and Boise State is one of those teams," Lindstrom said. "I’m trying to end my BC career and as a senior class trying to do something special here and get our eighth win." Moves back smoothly in pass pro. 

When it turns into a fight he wins. "What a tremendous representation of Boston College. He just comes in here, kind of guy that stands for all the right things. His whole family. His brother Alec is a young guy here, following exactly in the same course as Chris. Chris will have a great opportunity to go on and play at the next level, have great things ahead of him. I wish I had 20 of him. He's a great guy, really, truthfully." He grabs on and holds his base as well as any OL in this Draft. . 
2018 (SENIOR): All-ACC First Team... New England Football Writers All-New England Team... ACC Preseason Team... Athlon Sports Preseason All-American... Outland Trophy Watch List... moved to right guard for the season opener vs. UMass (9/1/18) and was on the field for 65 snaps... played in his 40th consecutive game as the starting right guard vs. Holy Cross (9/8/18) and totaled 50 snaps on offense.

Miles Boykin- 6-3 3/8, 220, 6.77 3-C! 4.07 SS! 11'8"Br! 43.5"Vert! (U) 4.42, 12 Reps

WR

Fighting Irish

03/2019: He made a lot of money at the Combine It will be hard for him to get out of Day Two. Nice feet on sideline. He didn’t have drop in 1st Gantlet. But he weaved. Nice adjustment slowing and going up and grabbing the late ball. Nice job tracking the deep ball. Nice feet on sideline. He can track it over his shoulder. He is a great Redzone treat. 

When a smart QB throws a high lob to him in the Endzone, he skies up over everyone and holds on as the DB assaults him on the way down. Knows how to use his inside hand to hold off the CB. A 6.77 3-Cone is an amazing number for a near 6-4 WR. His explosion number are almost as impressive. An 11'8" Broad Jump and 43.5" Vertical leap are amazing. 

Great concentration, He can snag the tipped ball like it was on a line. They will run the screen to him, and let him get yards with his feet. He will drop the short once in a while. He can also get low, and snag the low pass at his chin. Which is tough to do for such a big WR. 

SENIOR SEASON (2018): Led team during the regular season with 803 receiving yards on 54 catches and eight TDs. Had at least one TD catch in six straight games (STAN, VT, PITT, NAVY, NW, FSU), the longest such streak by an Irish WR since Will Fuller in 2014. Eclipsed 100 receiving yards in three games and had two games with multiple TD catches. Snared 11 receptions for 144 yards and a score against Stanford, Made a pair of TD catches among eight receptions for 117 yards at No. 24 Virginia Tech. Had four catches and two TD grabs against Navy.
JUNIOR SEASON (2017): Played in 12 games and started one contest (vs. LSU). Caught 12 passes for 253 yards and two TDs. Led the Irish receiving corp with a 21.1 yards per catch average. Recorded first career 100-yard receiving game in the 21-17 come-from-behind victory over No. 17 LSU in the 2018 Citrus Bowl. Caught three passes for 102 yards, including a 55-yard TD with 1:28 remaining to help Notre Dame secure its first victory in a New Year’s Day bowl since the 1994 Cotton Bowl against Texas A&M. Both of his TD receptions exceeded 50 yards. 54-yard TD grab vs. Miami, Ohio (Sept. 30) and 55-yard TD grab vs. LSU (Jan. 1).

*Julian Love- 5-11, 193, #27

CB

Notre Dame

09/2018: He can get a little mixed up in the zone, but still make the play in coverage. Plays Off a lot. He has some twitch inside. He looks like he has the physical talent to play CB in the NFL. Plays Off a little too much for my taste. Is he hiding speed, or is it scheme? He can be taken out of run game, because he is busy shadowing the WR, which I kind of like. 

He can line up on the Slot guy, and is quick enough to burst outside at the snap and take the X. He can really give the WR a big hit when the ball arrives, to try and knock it out. Plays his zone position well. Elite feet moving backwards. He can sky up and knock down the back shoulder fade in the Endzone, over the bigger WR (Stanford 2017, but then he gave up the TD on a terribly under thrown ball, which he couldn't get to or see).  

He has that knack for arriving as the ball arrives. He can get pushed back by the big blocker, and hold his feet as he stays in front of the RB. Then dive into the RB off the blocker and make the tackle. He is a tough little fighter. Takes on the blocking WR well. Not a great run defender. You are not going to get a lot of tackles from him. 

Tape: He has that great knack for arriving as the ball arrives (:08). He got into great position, and then dived out and knocked the ball down (:14). He is not going to give a lot in run defense (:28). He was a hair slow on the quick Out (:35). But he is still there an instant after the ball arrives.

He can obviously play on both sides (:56). But he plays mostly on the QB's right. He can turn and run with most WRs (1:04). Great look at the snap in his hips as he turns outside. Then the suddenness in a little quick burst forward after (1:14). Then he gets in the WR's hip pocket and stays there.

He is strong, and he is smart. He can stack and shed the WR, and make the tackle when the RB runs right at him (1:25). But he is not going to charge into the pile, or blockers, to make the tackle (1:32). Great feet and speed moving backwards (1:41). Great understanding of position, and reads the WR as well as anyone I've seen. He keeps his feet moving, and arrives as the ball arrives (2:05). Watch the great stop and burst forward (2:14). Then his head is up and he is tracking the ball. I'd like to see him try and catch it once in a while. But extending his inside hand knocking it down works too.

Jarrett Stidham- 6-3, 215, #8, 

QB

Auburn

11/2018: He can throw accurately when a rusher burst free right into his face. He has a very quick release once he makes the decision. Throws 20 to 30 yards over the middle off the RPO (or play action, I don't know;) with some excellent velocity and accuracy. He can snag the off shotgun snap, and turn and throw it instantly to the WR running the skinny-post off the seam. He can go to his third option on his left, while rolling out to his right. 

“I was coming into a new situation, didn’t really know a lot of people on the team. I got to know them over time, but when you're first named the starter in fall camp, then you progress your way through the season — it’s a lot different than Year 1 is under the belt, you go into a full offseason as 'the guy,' then you go into your second season as the starter," Stidham said about 2017. “I mean, you just build relationships in a much better process over that amount of time than you do in a short amount of time. So that’s the main thing for me, just pouring into my teammates and my relationships with them, and just knowing that, you know, making sure they know that I have their back, and that they have mine. I think that’s where great teams are formed, where you have guys on a team that really love each other and really want to just play for each other.”

Locks onto a single target 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.

Nasir Adderley- 6', 200, #23

FS

Delaware

02/2019: He is a FS, who played Corner earlier in his career. That is always a good thing. He played a ton of special teams at Delaware, which is very important, and also returned Kicks and Punts.  He plays fast. They played a lot of Cover Three. When a WR catches the ball in front of him, and can slam over and knock him clean off his feet and out of bounds. Excellent hitter.

Nice job sliding over the middle to take out the RB. When he hits guys they go down fast. He is a lot stronger and more solid than he looks. He will play Cover One right behind the three DBs, and follow them over to the RB. Nice job taking on the TE down field, shedding him, and making the tackle on the RB. Nice timing to hit the WR as the ball arrives. 

Great job picking up the TE going down the Seam in Cover Two. He is a big FS. They don't move him up to the line a lot, or into the Box. The will move him all around the back end, but he plays FS pretty much wherever they line him up. Nice job playing over the top of the trips, and staying in his pedal without letting a WR get over him. When he steps up into the Box, it is to cover the Slot guy. Great job getting through traffic to the RB. 

He will play in front of the QB in Cover Two. When he take a bad angle, it is usually an aggressive angle. But he can spin off the block and still get to the RB. Great movement skills. This kid can really fly on the field. They will leave the outside WR uncovered, and he will pick him up and late, and can knock the ball out as it arrives. 
AT DELAWARE: Fourth-year member of the squad as a senior. one of the top defensive backs in the Colonial Athletic Association. he will also be counted on to return punts and kickoffs. He's a dynamic player with great skill set.

*Bobby Evans- 6-5, 301, #71

OLT

Oklahoma

02/2019: He played ORT for two seasons, and then switched over OLT this past season. "For some guys, moving to left from right side of the line, it’s nothing," HC Riley said. "You get some guys who can do it, and it’s not a big deal. For some guys, it’s like me trying to write left-handed." It took him a while to adjusted.

But by October, when he faced Texas and TCU (Omenihu and Ben Banogu) he had settled in. "I think the last two games have been his better games. I think those are the two best defensive ends he’s faced and he did a pretty good job," Bedenbaugh said. "Again, he’s a guy getting more comfortable playing that position. I’ve said it every week. It’s not an easy transition to just go from right to left. Everything is different. His body was so used to playing on the right side and everything you do is different. So it’s just getting the reps and getting comfortable doing everything on that side." Nice job sealing the big DE outside on the goal line.

Blocks with good lean. He likes to line up in a two-point stance, which is unusual for an OLT. "He of that group is probably our most improved player up front,” Riley said. “Last year he was kind of the new guy up there, the young guy that stepped up and won that right tackle job He kind of had to do it. He played against, seemed like, everybody’s best player. And he hung in there well, where I feel like he’s not hanging in there. He’s starting to become a dominant-type player himself." He can sink and hit with good lean, and shove the edge rusher up and out of leverage. 

Terrific job catching the Edge guy on play action, and then holding on. and not letting him move off the LOS. Nice job running the big 5-Tech, lined up in front of him, down the line, and opening it up for his QB to take off. He will struggle to get low when they put a big DT outside in front of him. He has to get lower. I’d like to see him in a 3-point stance.

2018: Named a second-team All-Big 12 selection by league’s coaches and media ... part of an offensive line unit that won the Joe Moore Award ... started all 14 games at left tackle after moving over from right tackle in offseason.
2017: An honorable mention All-Big 12 selection by league's coaches ... an Academic All-Big 12 Second Team honoree ... started all 14 games at right tackle.
2016: An honorable mention All-Big 12 pick by league's coaches ... an Academic All-Big 12 First Team honoree ... did not play in opener against ULM and then started final 12 games at right tackle ... played 594 snaps and allowed two sacks.

CB

Auburn

03/2019: Fastest SEC Corner in this Draft. Aggressive stance in Press. He can get real low. He has some snap in his hips turning outside. No trouble running down the sideline with the Speed-WR. Understands position and how and when to turn. Fluid hips turning up field. When it gets physical with the WR he wins.

He played in the Slot as the Nickel Corner. That is very valuable in the NFL these days. Plays hard, and will try and set the edge against the pulling OG (not successfully but fights;). Plays on the QB's left, and will step into the slot on that side. He will also play on the QB's right, and they like him to play outside more on that side. 

He can get up and press at the line. More grabs than chucks sometimes, which he'll have to change. Nice physical chuck and jam as well. He can jam the WR, and then leap over his shoulder and slap the pass down. Better at knocking the ball down than catching it. He has everything you want in a Number One Corner, except good hands to catch the ball.  

Some team is going to look at his Top Five athleticism at the Combine: his size, Speed (O) 4.3, his physicality, his ability to play the Slot, and/or cover the #1 or #2 WR outside. And take him very early. He could slip into Day One.

2018: Returning starter at cornerback … 30 tackles, 11 PBU for season … interception in the Washington win … two tackles, two PBU vs. LSU … TFL, PBU vs. Arkansas … three tackles vs. Southern Miss … seven tackles, fumble recovery and sack in Texas A&M win … interception at Georgia … three tackles at Alabama … preseason: all-SEC 2nd team (Athlon, SEC media/coaches, Lindy’s); Bruce Feldman College FB Freaks (#10) ...

Deebo Samuel- 6', 210, 7.03 3-C. (O) 4.48, 10'2"Br 39"V, 4.14 SS, 

WR/Slot

South Carolina

02/2019: He was great all week at the Senior Bowl. He earned practice player of the week. He reminded me of Edelman. He was the best and toughest slot guy down in Mobile. He was one crazy dude on the practice field, turned every rep into a fight, and seemed to enjoy getting hit, like Edelman, all week long. 

He also is said to have 4.3 speed (I'd be happy with 4.4). "He’s an electric football player that’s extremely powerful, confident, hard to tackle and he’ll be a key guy for us," Georgia HC Kirby Smart said. You gotta get him on the ground when he gets the ball, because you’ll never know when it’s going to him." I have seen him use that speed to get open deep down field quite a few times. 

He also is a great special teams player. He is a dynamic and scary punt returner, like Edelman. He also is a great Gunner on punts. He can turn a kick into a dynamic masterpiece at any moment. He gets open quicker than you'd think on the second and third levels, and can leap up and snag the ball over his head and the CB. 

He was the top competitor in the ACC last season. "He’s probably the most underrated player in all of college football. I don’t know that everyone in the country knows what the SEC knows about Deebo Samuel," Kirby Smart said. "The guy is phenomenal. Even two years ago he gave us fits in that game and then you turn around and say he has a tough injury he has to deal with, but before he had that injury he had some of the most electric kickoff returns in the country." Like Edelman, he would rather spit up blood than loose. 

They also liked to swing the ball out to him short, like Edelman, and have him follow some blockers for yards. "Every time the ball was in the air, I was going to get it," Samuel said at the time. "He wrote me on Facebook and told me he was very impressed with me. I went to the [Coastal] game, he took me in the locker room and he offered me then. It put a pretty big smile on my face." If he is on the Board when the Pats pick they cannot pass on him.  

11/2019: He looked a little small to me.. But at 6-foot 200-210 pounds would be a great size for him in the Draft. Great instincts. He can block for the QB running, and then suddenly catch the ball over his head as the QB suddenly whipped it at him. One of the toughest WRs I have ever seen. 
If he is really 6’, 200 than he is a 1st round pick. Great speed, quickness, and explosion on the field. He is really their only threat in the passing game, and he constantly produces for SC. Usually has great hands, but he will let the fast ball get through his hands sometimes. He plays a lot in the slot, inside, and over the middle. He is Edelman tough going over the middle taking hits from LBs and holding on.

Rock Ya Sin- 5-11, 190, #6

CB

Temple

02/2019: Rock was playing at Presbyterian when they decided to step down a level and no longer give scholarships. So he "was allowed the opportunity to transfer to Temple and play his Senior Year. And he took every advantage of that opportunity he could. HE played so well he got invited to the Senior Bowl, and will not slip out of Day Two.

Nice run defender on the edge. He comes off the WR fast and gets in front of the RB and takes him out. He just has that knack for running with the WR. Great quick feet moving backwards when the WR breaks inside. Good blitzer off the edge. 

He likes to gallop back sideways so he can watch the QB and the WR, and he can really move, and transition into a full retreat as smoothly as I have ever seen. The 3/4ering also allows him to stop and attack forward much faster. He plays a lot of finesse press as he watches the QB. But he can bring it. He can play it as tough and physical as you want. 

Smooth WR moving backwards. He can loose sight of the rest of the field as he concentrates solely on the WR. Nice movement skills going backwards while half turned to the WR. He can read the WR eyes, and turn to find the ball in the air and beat the WR to it. 

2018 (Senior): Was a mid-year transfer in January from Presbyterian College after the Blue Hose decided to move down from FCS to DII (Ya-Sin was extended the opportunity to finish out his scholarship but was given the ability to seek other opportunities) ... was awarded a coveted single-digit jersey in the summer (Temple awards single-digits to the nine toughest players on the team ... third in the conference and tied for 14th in the nation in passes defended (12) ... made first career start in FBS for Temple against Villanova ... recorded first interception for Temple against Buffalo ... recorded a career-high 10 tackles vs. Tulsa and had an interception make the top play on SportsCenter.
2017 (Junior): Started all 11 games at cornerback for head coach Tommy Spangler at Presbyterian College ... finished the year a first-team all-Big South selection ... recorded a school record five interceptions ... also recovered two fumbles while registering 49 total tackles, fourth most on the team ... career-high seven tackles against Saint Francis

Zach Allen- 6-5, 285, #2

EDGE

BC

07/2018: Allen is not as good a rusher as Landry was. "Harold was a great role model how to conduct yourself. He was a true professional in all facets on the field and off the field," Allen said. "I think just kind of following his example, leading into last year, kind of helped me learn how to be a true professional football player. And I think kind of helped me with that breakout year, just seeing how this all facets of his life, nutrition, working out extra, whatever it is, he really was a great example." Allen has better prototypical NFL size than Landry. 

He has the measurables that NFL teams want, and may have worked himself up to 285-pounds (listed weight is not always the actual weight;). "He's a tremendous hard worker. He's huge. He's hard to block. I block him every day," TE Tommy Sweeney said. "Well, line up against him every day. Sometimes I block him, sometimes he gets me, and tremendous competitor. He's got some crazy style. He was one of two defensive linemen with 100 tackles last year. That speaks for itself. He's pretty uncommon and he's pretty unique and a great kid. He works his tail off, and he's a tremendous football player." He can play standing up, and with his hand down on the edge. 

He also has the size to play some inside rusher on obvious passing downs. "With Harold, obviously having him on the other side of the line definitely helped out a lot. But even when he went down, having Wyatt Ray come in was really a seamless transition. He's an elite end, too," Allen said. "So I don't think too much is really going to change this year. And then nutrition, you can't outwork a bad diet. So I know personally, I worked really hard with our nutritionist, Joan. She's been fantastic. She's probably the most qualified nutritionist you can get. So she definitely has helped me out, and I'm looking forward to see how it pays off this year." He can also step outside and cover. 

He garnered 3 PBUs last season, to go along with 15.5 TFLs, and 100 tackles, but only 4 Sacks. "It's definitely tough [playing in the ACC], especially with these quarterbacks getting faster," Allen said. "It's like defending against two running backs. It's a challenge, but I think last year when we went on that little winning stretch, we figured out how to play against those offenses. But they're only going to get faster and they're only going to get more complex. I think we have the right attitude about it coming in every week and preparing, so really excited to face some new challenges this year." To me, he has to prove he has that knack for hitting the quarterback that set Landry apart from the rest.

*Damien Harris- 5-10.1", 216, (U) 4.49, 10'1"Broad, 37"Vert, 30 3/4", 16 Reps

RB

Alabama

07/2018: Likes to bounce it outside quick. He has NFL speed. He will take the hand off and burst outside instantly. Does a good job finding the hole in the line. Nice quick feet at the line. Nice receiver. Hands catcher. Catches the ball thrown behind him naturally and easily. 

10/2017: Boy! It is really starting to look like the year of the RB, not the QB. As the QBs struggle a little, the Runningbacks coming out this season might be the best I have ever seen. Josh Adams is proven to be an unstoppable blend of speed and power, and still averaging 9 yards per carry in November. Ronald Jones II looks like Jamaal Charges to me. Guice has not been good this year, but was the best of the bunch last year. I would be shocked if five RBs didn't go the 1st Round this year. And I am not a believer in taking RBs on Day One. 

But Harris could be the best of the bunch. "Damien has played a lot of good football for us," coach Saban said of Harris. "He's a very talented guy. He's a rare combination of make-you-miss, burst, acceleration, speed. Has enough power as a player. He's a good receiver. Damien's biggest thing is, how do we get him to play with consistency at a high level all the time? There's times that he's battled some nagging injuries. And last year, he had some phenomenal games early, got a little bit nicked up and never really came back the same. We know he has the capabilities to be a dominant player for us, and hopefully he can stay healthy this year and be able to do that. But we have a lot of faith, trust and confidence in Damien Harris." He has been terrific this season. 

10/2017: Great hop, skip, and jump through the line to get to the second level with speed. When he gets outside and turns the corner he hurts the defense. He makes Scarborough look slow. He started slowing a little on short yardage, to follow Bozeman's blocks, and then explodes for more than he should have gotten. He has taken over as the number one RB for Alabama. He has been a very under utilized RB, and probably has more tread on the tires than any other RB in this Draft.

WR

WVU

02/2018: He is a JuCo kid, who played QB his whole life and switched over to WR in 2017 when he went back to WVU (though he did play WR for half a season in 2015 at WVU).  "It’s still a developmental process, and David understands receiver more now," WVU WR-Coach Tyron Carrier said. “He can see through the film last year how he can get better, and that translates to how he practices. I don’t think there’s a rep out there that’s wasted." He went to a JuCo school in 2016 to play QB, and came back to WVU in 2017 to play WR.  

He was compared to Hogan at the Senior Bowl, but he is bigger, faster, and ten time better than Hogan getting into the Endzone. "I want to leave my mark and I want the guys to say that I helped them," Sills said. "A lot of our twos and threes are young, and Carrier’s got a lot to deal with out there. He’s got to be watching what’s happening on the field, so the least I can do is help someone on the sideline by relaying what he’s taught me." But he does have Hogan’s knack for getting open deep. 

Someone is going to strike gold with this kid on Day Two. "The thing you love about Sills is he can score a touchdown and still critique it," WVU OC Jake Spavital said. "He’s constantly in that learning mode, and I think you should be in that your entire life." He has scored more TD passes than any other WR the past two seasons. 

He has that extra work ethic that could make him a Patriot. "Even when the twos are going, Sills is paying attention. [He is always] helping out those young guys and telling them what works for him," Spavital said. "They can take it or leave it, but by his work ethic and what he proved last year, I’d be listening to it." He also has QB smarts, and played QB in college like Edelman. 

Pats have five Day Two picks. There is a lot of talk about the incredible depth at DL, but there are a ton if WRs in this Draft as well. He has that knack for getting open deep. In drills at the Combine the DBs were winning. Then he slipped onto the field and caught a bomb on his outside shoulder for a TD. He has such a great nose for the Endzone. 
2018 (Sr.): Two-time All-Big 12 First-Team Selection (2018, 2017). AFCA, Walter Camp All-American (Second Team). AP All-American (Third Team). Biletnikoff Award Semifinalist. WVU Offensive Player of the Year. WVU Team Captain. No. 1 in the Big 12 Conference and No. 2 nationally in receiving touchdowns (15). No. 2 in the Big 12 Conference and No. 2 nationally in total touchdowns (15). No. 5 in the Big 12 Conference and No. 47 nationally in scoring (7.5). No. 6 in the Big 12 Conference and No. 40 nationally in receptions per game (5.4). No. 7 in the Big 12 Conference and No. 63 nationally in total points scored (90). No. 8 in the Big 12 Conference and No. 32 nationally in receiving yards per game (82.2).
No. 10 in the Big 12 Conference in yards per reception (15.2). His 35 career receiving touchdowns are No. 2 in WVU history. Only player in WVU history to have at least 15 receiving touchdowns in two different years. Led the Mountaineers in 2018 with 65 catches and 15 receiving touchdowns and was No. 2 in yards with 986. Holds the national mark for most receiving touchdowns over his last two years (33). Forty-Three of his 65 catches (66.2 percent) have resulted in either a first down or a touchdown in 2018.

*Deionte Thompson- 6-1, 195, #14

FS

Alabama

02/2019: Thompson is a bit of a one-year wonder. He started the last two games in 2017, and all of 2018. Very nice feet moving back and cheating to one side. He can drop down the middle. Then get outside the seam to grab the INT in the Endzone. Exceptional eyes, range, and smarts. He has that knack for coming up and hitting the WR off his feet. 

I love how he can get from sideline to sideline and tip the ball from Cover One, Then he can fly up fast and slam the RB to the ground. They play him a lot in Cover Two as well. Some question his speed, but on the field he gets into position and makes the tackles and hits. Nice job as the last line of defense and gets to the RB truckin' down the sideline. 

He plays a lot of Cover One. Makes plays on the ball on deep throws down the Seam. That is a great asset for a defense. Then on the next play he can swoop in and take out the RB swing out of the backfield. On the next play he can take out the WR running on the opposite side of the field. He is a true Cover One Safety.

DE 

Old Dominion

02/2019: He knows how to use his hands to keep big blockers off his shirt. He has some nice violence in his hands. He can reverse direction and shove the ORT off of him. He has that burst that he can use to get the edge on the ORT, and run past him. He can shift between blockers pulling to his side, and find the RB. 

Naturally sets the edge with his sideways burst upfield. Nice job slapping the ORT arms down, and hopping past him. He doesn't seem to have that knack for finding the ball. He has some suddenness in his blast off. He can use his inside hand with some power, but doesn't use it enough. 

He will rush both standing up and with his hand down at D-end. Nice burst upfield sideways facing the QB. Nice timing leaping up and tipping the pass. He tipped a pass against Marshall, and snagged as it fell down against for an INT. Very athle tic, and he has some twitch to him. 

Small school prospect with a ton of athleticism. He a nice Sack against Marshall. He slapped off the ORT by his shoulders with both hands, and grabbed the QB and pulled him down. The QB tried to step up but he slammed into him and took him off his feet. 

I didn't think he stood out at the Senior Bowl at all. He is a hard hitter when he finds the ball. He can shed the ORT and burst inside to the RB on the Dive. He will stand outside and watch the RB run up the middle sometimes, and not do anything. I don't know. I couldn't draft him. Someone is going to take him well before the 3rd Round.

EDGE

Michigan

09/2018: I love the way he jams his arm into the OLT’s rips and slaps his arms down with his outside hand, to turn the corner into the QB. He consistently runs around college OTs. He will burst inside, and then see the RB go outside of him, and spin back and hit him. Remarkable athlete and instincts. 
He stays on the field on punts sometimes. Great job shedding and jumping on the RB for a TFL. I don’t know how, with all the DL talent in this Draft, but this guy is a 1st round pick. He is un-friggin’-blockable too often to not be a 1st. When Gary got injured, he still produced with the extra attention. 

Fifth-year Senior (2018): Hailed as the Midseason Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press. Named a midseason All-American by the Associated Press and ESPN.

D'Andre Walker- 6-2, 251, 34 3/8"Arms, 

LB/OLB

Georgia

02/2019: He had hernia surgery in January. "I had surgery on my birthday, Jan. 23, and it will take six to eight weeks to recover from that," Walker said. "Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to show off my talents there (Georgia Proday)." Great passrusher. He is a 3-4 OLB that can get to the QB. He was a force in the first half of the season, before he got hurt.

Ultra tough kid who played hurt all season. He has that knack for hitting the Quarterback. 

He will be more of an off the ball LB in the NFL, maybe. So he has to get better dropping into coverage. I think he can play 3-4 OLB in the NFL. That was where he was the most productive.  He is a little light to be a pure Edge, but so are a lot of defenses now a days. Smaller quicker defenders are all the rage now a days. 

34" arms is a great number for him. He still has some upside. Not a finished product. Great blast off to get blockers in trouble right away. Sneaky rusher. Anticipates snap. Blitzed from everywhere and hit the QB. He drops a lot. They used that to confuse OLs. He was there best rusher last year. Great versatility. He knows how to use his long arms and hands to get to the QB.

They schemed for his rush. "I’m not a great player overall, I have my flaws, and I own up to them," Walker said. "I feel like dropping back into coverage [needs to improve]. I’ve shown I can do it. But I know I’m not doing it to the best of my ability right now. And that’ what I plan to focus on and keep getting better at." He is a great blitzer. When he was out the Georgia pass rush really suffered. 

When he came back the rush came together again.  "As far as a team drafting me, I feel I can do it all," Walker said. "I can drop back into coverage, I can get in a 3-point stance, I can even play middle linebacker, in my opinion." I don’t know if he has the size to do it in the NFL, but he has that knack for hitting the quarterback. 

Relentless speed rusher. "Georgia has prepared me a lot for the NFL, mainly practice. Going up against our great offensive line and Coach Smart being in everybody’s face each and everyday and wanting the best from everybody," Walker said. "I feel like I’m a great run stopper on first and second down, (and) I always felt like I’m a great pass rusher as well. I feel like I’m an every down player." Great bend once he runs by the OT. 

Good job setting the edge."1st and 2nd down is run down," Walker said. "So I would love to put my hand in the dirt and defend the run and on third down. I’d love to drop into coverage or rush the passer."  He looks like more of a 4-3 OLB, but he is a 3-4 OLB who knows how to set the edge and send RBs back inside where he has help. 

2018: Started all 13 games in which he played and finished with 45 total stops, along with 11.0 tackles for loss, 7.5 QB sacks and 14 QB pressures, all team highs...career-best seven tackles vs. Georgia Tech, including a second-quarter QB sack...five tackles vs. Alabama included two for loss, a QB sack, a forced fumble and a pass breakup...had a sack for a 6-yard loss, in addition to a forced fumble, vs. Tennessee...had a sack and a tackle for a 9-yard loss vs. South Carollna...had a fumble recovery and QB pressure in season opener vs. Austin Peay...had two QB sacks and four QB pressures, to go along with this four tackles, in the win at Missouri...two stops vs. Auburn included a tackle for a 6-yard loss...also had a pass breakup vs. the Tigers...co-winner of the Defensive Up Front award, given at team's post-season awards gala.
2017: Played in 15 games and had 40 total stops...second on the team in both tackles for lost yardage (13.5) and QB sacks (5.5)...one of four defensive players to win Most Improved Award, given at team’s post-season awards gala...had career-high six total stops in win at Georgia Tech, including a pair of tackles for lost yardage...matched that performance in the SEC Championship game vs. Auburn...in Rose Bowl, made five tackles, including two for lost yardage and a QB sack for a loss of eight yards

*Kelvin Harmon- 6-2 1/2" 221, (U) 4.61, 

WR

NC State

11/2019: I do think this kid ends up in the 1st, but I gotta see his speed at the Combine first. He is not a speed guy. Plus, the Pats have to draft a WR early to help Brady, which means they probably won't again! Just to drive me nuts. He is a pure fighter blocking and going and getting the pass for his QB. 

So I loaded up this Draft with options that should be available at each pick. Here you got Daniel Jones at 54, T.J. Hockenson at 55, Harmon here. After this pick is Damien Harris at 57, Kaden Smith at 58 and Ryan Finley at 59. Now they all could be gone by now, or even Firsts after the Combine, but right now I saying there's a chance. 

Harmon is the hottest guy in the Draft right about now. He had Finley throwing to him, and he garnered 1,186-yards and 7 TDs on 81 receptions. He can play in the slot. He can be a drive blocker in the Slot on CBs and FS. He might be the best blocking WR in this Draft. Works very hard on blocking, and will chase Safeties downfield to cut them off when the RB gets outside. 

Finley wasn't afraid to throw the ball to him when he was blanketed. He is terrific at fighting through the CB, and leaping up and grabbing the ball right in front of him. But he has to do that because he doesn't create great separation. Runs a nice stop and go to get open deep. Nice burst inside on In in the slot. He is not the best guy getting open in pattern in this Draft, but his size allows him to power forward his way to the QB's rebound throws. 

OVERALL (before the 2018 season): Has 96 career catches after just two years, the No. 20 mark in school history. His 1,479 receptions yards is the 17th-best career mark ever for a Wolfpack player. Has seven 100+ yard receiving games for his career, the fifth-best mark in school history. Named a Columbus Touchdown Club Player to Watch for 2018.
AS A SOPHOMORE (2017): The first Pack receiver since 2003 to go over the 1,000-yard mark in a season. His 1,017 yards ranked sixth in school history - second-best ever for a Wolfpack sophomore. That was the second-best mark in the ACC for the season. 69 receptions in 2017 ranks fourth in school history for a single season, best ever for a sophomore. Boasted six 100+yard receiving games - the fourth-highest single season tally in school history. A second-team All-ACC choice on the official league squad, he was named to the ACSMA first team. A Biletnikoff award candidate. Hauled in a career-high 155 yards on 8 grabs versus Clemson. First WR to open the season with back-to-back 100-yard games since Koran Robinson in 2000. Earned the team’s Gary Rowe Award for wide receiver of the year

DE

Iowa

03/2019: Big 5-Tech looking dude who played Base-End. He will play in the NFL. Likely a Day Three pick who plays for a long time in the NFL. If can show his knack for hitting the quarterback he could go Day Two. Two straight seasons of 8.5 Sacks got him to mobile, but I need to see more to get him out of Day Three. 
He has some power at the point. Abuses TEs in the run game. He just wins. He is tall, and uses his long arms well. He doesn’t get beat by leverage. He made some very good OLs look bad at SB. He was more of a read and react 5-Tech at Iowa, and when he was allowed to just attack he made guys look foolish. 

He kept showing speed around the corner at the SB. He knows how to use his hands to knock the OLT’s hands down, and turn on him. Great stunting inside. He dominated in pass rush drills all week at the SB. Then he finally got his sack, for a FF as well, in the 3rd. He is a Day Two DL. 

He had a great Combine. "Iowa means a lot to me. The people there, all of my teammates, all the fans," Nelson said. "Just talking to my family, my mom, dad and my brother, and people in my life, coaches, coach [Kirk] Ferentz, both coach Morgan and coach Bell, I just decided it was best for me. I’m ready to compete at the highest level. I want that competition. That’s what I was going on, striving to be the best and this is the step I need to take." The Pats will be looking very closely at him, as another big edge guy.  
2018: Ranked second on the team in tackles for loss (13.5-67) and sacks (9.5-63) . . . ranked eighth on team with 45 tackles . . . started at defensive end in 33-7 win over Northern Illinois . . . recorded one solo tackle for an eight-yard sack vs. NIU . . . started at defensive end in 13-3 win over Iowa State as defense allowed just 19 net rushing yards and 188 yards total offense .

*David Montgomery- 5-11, 219, #32

RB

Iowa ST

07/2018: Played in a shotgun offense. Runs a nice pattern through the line, and breaks out with some nice quicks. He will line up in the slot when they go Empty. He can give a great chip to the D-end, and then slide outside to the flat. Shows his size in pass pro. He will chip on the DT as well. He will hit the blitzing ILB in pass pro, then slip off and be wide open over the middle. Regularly goes out in pattern after he chips. Doesn't stay in to block completely very much, but chips and goes a ton. 

"He was probably as good as we’ve seen (as a prospect). Yet he was the guy who was sprinting from drill to drill, almost daring me, 'how could you not offer me a scholarship?' To see those traits," Iowa ST HC Campbell said. "The football piece was fun to watch. But the attitude, the character, the mental fortitude, that was palpable to watch and that was what really separated him so much in that camp. It was really impressive."

More smooth than twitchy. Nice one cuts. He likes to jab his foot forward, and then change direction quickly and smoothly. Makes guys miss a yard or two or five away with that move all game. Runs through arm tackles. Excellent vision and runs with his head up, and makes moves on defenders yards away from him. Deceptive speed outside, and does a great job cutting back behind his blockers.

"I think with how physical I am, they forget how swift and full of finesse I am as well,” Montgomery said a little self-centeredly. "I can run through people. But I can shake people too. I like having that extra dimension for myself."

Very shifty in the backfield.  Plays faster than he looks. Smart runner who know how to set up his blockers, and cut behind their blocks. Nice straight arm on ILB blitzing into him. Strong guy who runs with great natural strength. Not easy to bring down, because he also has some great COD. Great size. Nice jab inside before he bounces it outside to trick the DLs. 
2017: Started all 13 games … one of the best running backs in the nation, ranking third in the Big 12 in rushing yards per game (88.2) … became the 14th Cyclone rusher in school history to reach the 1,000-yard barrier (1,146 yards) to rank 16th on ISU’s season record book … had six 100-yard rushing games, tying for eighth on ISU’s season list, and 11 rushing touchdowns, ranking third in the Big 12 … led the nation in forced missed tackles (109), the most in a season by an FBS player since Pro Football Focus began tracking the stat in 2014 … reeled off three-straight 100-yard games during the season, tying for 10th in school history … also a threat as a receiver, ranking fifth on the team in receptions (36) and compiling 296 receiving yards … his 36 receptions ranks second among ISU running backs in a season … averaged 111.0 yards per game from scrimmage … had one fumble in 294 touches … ran for two TDs and 82 yards vs. UNI … posted 112 rushing yards and a TD vs Iowa … gained 127 yards on the ground and had 46 receiving yards vs. Akron … in ISU’s win at No. 3 Oklahoma, ran for 55 yards and a TD and registered career highs in receptions (7) and receiving yards (89) … scored three TDs and had 68 rushing yards vs. Kansas … posted a season-high 164 rushing yards vs. Texas Tech, including a season-long 58-yard scamper … had three-straight 100-yard games vs. West Virginia (115), Oklahoma State (105) and Baylor (144) …. tallied three rushing TDs and had six catches vs Oklahoma State … enters junior season with 1,709 rushing yards, 13 touchdowns, eight 100-yard rushing games, 49 receptions and 425 receiving yards.

OLG 

Fighting Irish

02/2019: I refuse to put an interior OL in the 1st. This Draft is staggeringly filled with terrific OCs and OGs. Edgar Jenkins is a top 1st Round pick OC that some team will get in the 2nd. That goes for Ross Pierschbacher, Garrett Bradbury, and friggin' Eric McCoy from A&M. 

Then you got the OGs, like: OG/OC Chris Lindstrom, the Wisconsin kids, Nate Davis, Ben Powers, Javon Patterson, and hell, I'd take Dru Samia in the Pats Offense on Day Three and smile all the way to the bank. The Senior Bowl was like an open audition for Day Two interior OLs. Not that the Pats need one.  

10/2018: He was the best OL I saw play last season. He is the best OL in this Draft. However, a devastating knee injury is going to be worked over at the Combine with a microscope. "Our doctors fear the worst is possible here with the knee," Kelly said. "It's devastating for us. I feel so bad for the kid." Lost for the season, and still getting ready for the Combine. 

09/2018: Stanford stopped rushing his lane in the 3rd. When the DE spun past the OLT to the QB, He was able to retreat and go back and knock him past the QB. Great awareness and instincts in pass pro. 
Nice job blocking down to the left. He does a very good job zone blocking in run game. Great job doubling down on the NT. He can send him sideways like he got hit by a car. They like to run behind him. When he hits guys they go down. He knocks guys sideways like no one I've seen in a while. 

This guy is the most underrated guy in this Draft. He was elite against Stanford. He was injured against Stanford. A defender dived at the RB, and fell onto the back of his leg and bent his knees and ankles into bad positions. He hurt his anckle. Terrible. But he did walk off the field.

CB

Penn St

02/2018: Elite feet in Press. He doesn't Press enough for my tastes, but he can line up in the WR's face and shut him down. Nice knack for arriving at the WR at the same times as the  ball in Off. He has the speed and hips to turn and ran with the WR in finesse Press. He will give up the inside to the Y. 

He charges up fast when the QB swings the ball out to the RB, and can get into the backfield and hit the RB after he catches it. Plays zone too much for my taste. But teams don't like to line up WRs on his side. Iowa was straight up scared, and Michigan ST seemed to do the same thing. He can stay in his pedal facing the WR and CB longer than just about every Corner in this Draft, very impressive. 

He does a good job shutting down the Weakside, and can make a better break on the ball than the WR. Nice feet moving backwards and outside. He will hop into the box, and is a good tackler on runs up the middle. He doesn't charge up field in run defense, but gets in front of the RB on the 2nd level, and takes him down if he makes it too him. 

They will blitz him from the Weakside. They like to switch him to the Strongside in the Redzone, and he can shut the X down in the short field. It is strange, but they do zone it a lot. He likes to press on that side, but will also drop into off sometimes. He will pick up the TE when he lines up on the Strongside in the Redzone, with no WR outside of him. 

He plays on both sides. He has good feet in the Zone, but shows great feet in Press. Nice job grabbing the arm of the big TE, and pulling the ball out to force the fumble. He stays on the QB's left, even when no WR lines up on that side. He will play on the Strongside when they go in the Redzone. He can get too grabby sometimes.

WR 

Buffalo

02/2019: He is a small school WR, who was a Community College transfer, and he got injured this season. Every game he doesn't start hurts his Draft stock more than Division I guys. He had a great showing in Senior Bowl practices. He really looked like a Patriots WR. He was running short patterns and inside patterns like a Patriot Slot WR all week. He was injured this season, and really needed to show what he could do against top-competition down in Mobile, and he really did that. 

07/2018: Nice hands quick hands to reach up and snag the high pass. Love his outside release, and once he is free outside, he can track and adjust to the deep pass for the big TD. Tough to tell his speed on the small school level, but he can run past smaller school CBs. He shows that speed at the Combine, he is a top half of the 1st WR. 

Nice release. He has a nice burst and speed down the sideline. Terrific hands catcher with strong hands to catch the inaccurate pass away from his body. Then he can run over the CB trying to tackle him. Nice hand fighter on outside release. He can get open outside deep, between the double. 

He can shove the CB to the ground blocking when he hits him in the side. He has good size, and plays to his size. He can get to the Mike, and block him with some irritability. He can shove the CB into another blocker, and then go hit the Safety. Great hands snagging the bad pass thrown behind him, the toughest kind to catch. 

Ultra productive small school WR. He can be dynamic with the ball in his hands. They set him up a lot for screens, jet sweeps, and short passes so he can run. He can be an inconsistent blocker, but when he gets his hands in the DBs shirt he can be a very good blocker. He will whiff on blocks sometimes.

He has some clutch in him (:01). They like to motion him a lot, and move him around formations. He can use his blockers, and make guys miss. Very dynamic with the ball in his hands (:22). Gets deep down the Seam, and then goes up high and snags the ball over the CB. He is a great hands catcher (:30). He will sometimes not give effort blocking way out on the edge where the CB is really not involved (:52). And sometimes he will go forward and grab the CB under the same circumstance. 

He is likely to start out in the Slot as a rookie, because he comes from a small school (:58). He can be a physical blocker when he wants to be (1:12). I like his initial burst into patterns. Then the quick cut off to get wide open for the First (1:20). They run a lot of plays to get the ball in his hands, to try and let him make a play (1:31). I like his release off the line (1:39). He can cause a lot of trouble from the Slot (2:00). Ultra productive small school WR.

WR

Ohio St

03/2019: He is the fastest Slot guy I have ever seen. Great runner after the catch. He set the Ohio Stat single season catch record. Man, this guy can fly. He could be a Patriot type Slot/outside guy. He reminds me of Emmanuel Sanders, only Sanders ran a 4.41 Forty. He is not scared playing in the middle of the field. He is unbelievable on Jet-Sweeps. 

He is such a unique slot guy. He has a history of bad hands, and worked very hard the last four year to improve his hands. Explosive first step. Great burst out of cuts. He has that knack for loosing DBs when he goes deep. I saw him catch a bunch of passes deep down field without a defender in sight.  Very unique slot guy. He doesn't always show his speed in pattern, but he can fly with the ball in his hands. 

Combine: He is a burner. He is a pure outside speed guy, but they like to line him up in the Slot. QBs can have trouble over throwing him. He didn’t have drop in 1st Gantlet. He can stop on the ball thrown behind him and snag it. He had the best speed at the Combine and he can get deep with that speed and catch the ball. He ran routes very well at Combine. Nice break inside. Explosive at the Break point. He can catch the bad ball deep down field.

Ohio State Overview: That career-long 78-yard touchdown play when Parris Campbell took a push pass from Dwayne Haskins in the backfield, raced to the right, turned left near the sideline and blazed past every Michigan defender in the area was a key and perhaps most memorable moment in a record-setting 2018 season for the fifth-year senior and two-time team captain … Campbell was outstanding for the Buckeyes this year, setting a school record with 90 receptions, including 12 touchdown receptions, and becoming only the fifth Buckeye to top 1,000 receiving yards in a season with 1,063 … he was named first-team all-Big Ten by the league’s coaches … his huge year leaves him with career totals of 143 receptions for 1,768 yards to rank seventh and 15th, respectively, in school history plus 15 touchdown receptions to also rank 15th in that category.

LB/DE

TCU 

07/2018: Great smooth athlete in cover drills. He had 8.5 Sacks the last two seasons. I was hoping for more improvement last season. He also garnered 34.5 TFLs the last two seasons. Rare athlete with the best explosion numbers in the Draft. That is what will slip him into Day Two. 

Great smooth athlete in cover drills. He blew up the Combine. He had the longest broad jump in the history of the Combine, which is an explosion measurement. An 11-2 Broad at 250 pounds is as great a number as you will ever see. He can really move left and right. Elite moving forward and back. Great agility in spin move. He will go earlier than you think, because some coach will look at those numbers and say, "I can coach him up!" 
He looked like an LB moving backwards in coverage. The elite Edge athlete at the Combine. NFL defense is still about hitting the quarterback. He is now a 2nd Round pick, and could slip into the 1st. You'd like him to show better rush instincts and that knack for hitting the quarterback. But he did garner 8.5 Sacks two years in a row at TCU. He also garnered 34.5 TFLs the last two seasons. Those are very good numbers.

ORT/OLT? 

Washington

02/2019: McGary is a guy with 1st Round talent, but he is not a 1st Round pick. He struggled with balance too much. He can sustain a block for 7 or 8 second on one play, and then would fall down after a couple seconds on the next. He is not an OLT. 47 Starts. He made a lot of money at the Senior Bowl. He was a beast and played in balance well. 

He played ORT last season, and might end up being an ORG. A little sluggish around the Corner. A little slow on pull, but gets low and winds up on hit. Not good in kickslide. A little quicker than I thought. Not as comfortable on left side. Nice and in control. 

He mirrored the rabbit with smooth feet going back and forth. He can be nimble pulling to the 2nd level. Powerful blocker who can put big defenders on skates. Mean SOB. Nice quicks. He won the  Morris award which is given to the guy Big 12 DLs hate the most.

He brings the nasty. Loves to pancake guys. He wants to knock defenders off their feet. When it turned into a fight he won. He wants to fight on every snap. He was recruited to Washington as a D-lineman. He brings that DL mentally to the line. When he grabbed shirt he can look elite. When he doesn't he can end up on the ground. He is a buyer beware player with a ton of upside. If a team think he could play on the left side, he could go 2nd Round. There seems to be a lot of talk of him going to the Pats (like they asked to see him on at OLT;). 

He has a heart arrhythmia that he has had to seek treatment for three times. Every time I see him do something great. It seems he does something bad. He is the most inconsistent player in this Draft. He had a great Senior Bowl. He got some Reps at OLT, which he never played a single snap at in college. He only had 32.7" Arms. Played in 53 games. 

2017: Started all 13 games at right tackle ... earned first-team All-Pac-12 ... named the UW coaches' lineman of the game for the win at Colorado ... shared the Earle T. Glant Tough Husky Award at the UW postseason awards banquet.
2016: Started every game of the 2016 season at right tackle ... named the team's lineman of the game after the win over Arizona.
2015: Played in 12 games, starting six ... made Husky debut in the Boise State game, seeing a good deal of action at right tackle ... also saw extensive time in the victory over Sacramento State ... earned first start, at right tackle, in the win over Utah State ... also started at right tackle vs. Cal, when he recorded a tackle (after a turnover) ... returned to a starting role as the right tackle vs. Utah ... also started there at Arizona State ... started the Apple Cup and the Heart of Dallas Bowl at right tackle.
2014: Redshirted his true freshman season at the UW.

QB

WVU

10/2018: He has great balance in the pocket. He trusts his line, and let’s his WRs get open, and throws to them over the middle, on time. Love when he three steps, plants the back foot, and throws. Nice job leading his WR away from the CB, and make him reach out for the ball or it is incomplete. 

He has such has great knack for throwing the ball on the opposite side of the body as the DB. That is my number one trait. I’m not saying he is Stafford, but he reminds me of him, He is similar in size and build. At this point he is my Number two QB.
He has played a lot of college football. He transferred from FLA, so you know he has a high recruit. He actually started six games as a Redshirt Freshman and played well. But then he tested positive for drugs and was banned from the team.
He sobered up, and transferred to WVU. "He's not a guy who's going to wow you with his athleticism," a scout said. "But he will probably be a solid starter." He plays in that wacky spread offense.
He didn’t want to leave FLA, but found a home in WVU. "The place I'm in now is great," Grier said- "It makes a lot more sense." He stands out to me, because he said he tries to copy everything that Brady does, so we know he is smart.

*Taylor Rapp- 6’ 200, (O) 4.74! 

FS/SS

Washington

02/2019: When he plays Cover One, he flies up to hit the RB when he breaks through the line. He plays the run like a SS. Sideline to sideline hitter. They will move him up into the box, and let him blitz when the RB stays in to block. He is terrific running to the ball carrier from deep, but he does not always take on blocks well. 

Plays Cover Two as well. He will play over the slot in Cover Two like a FS. Great tackler when he is the last line of defense. He is at his best when he charges up from deep coverage and consistently hits the ball carrier. His instincts for deep position and not allow guys to get behind him, allows the Wash-D to get very aggressive. 

He plays on the QB right in Cover Three. I love how he can play Centerfield as the Cover One Safety, and step up into the Box as box safety. If he shows the Speed at the Combine he could be a 1st. He is just a great Cover One Safety. He rarely lets a receiver get behind him in Cover One. 

2018: Announced on Jan. 2, 2019, that he would forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft ... played in and started the first 13 games of the season, before missing the Rose Bowl due to injury ... against Auburn in the season opener, finished with four tackles ... made three tackles, including two sacks, and recovered a fumble in the Husky win over North Dakota ... four tackles, including a sack, and two fumble recoveries in the win at Utah ... seven tackles and a pass break-up against Arizona State ... two tackles, including a sack, in the win over BYU ... had five tackles and an interception in the win at UCLA ... career-high nine tackles, including one for a loss, at Oregon ... one tackle in the Husky win over Colorado ... seven tackles and a pass break-up at California ... six tackles and also made an interception on the final play to preserve the Huskies' win over Stanford ... four tackles in the Husky win over Oregon State, earning the UW coaches' defensive player of the game award ... four tackles in the Apple Cup win at WSU ... three tackles, including a nine-yard sack, against Utah in the Pac-12 Championship Game ... won the Husky Excellence Award at the UW postseason awards banquet

Nickel/CB

Michigan

03/2019: He could be an interesting Nickel. He played outside and in the Slot at Michigan. At his height he could be a Day Two Nickel. You have to have three starting CBs these days. Nice pedal and hips. Smooth pedal. Played some Zone and Off. He can click and close. TMIWTMIL. 

This kid looked terrific at the combine. Nice high pointing the ball. He had some elite combine numbers, including an incredible like 6.45 3-Cone, and an excellent 3.96 Short Shuttle. Nice adjustment to the ball. He can go up and snag it. Nice job closing. Terrific burst out of break. No drop in first gauntlet. No drop in 2nd gauntlet.
Junior (2018): All-Big Ten selection (first team, coaches; third team, media). All-Big Ten selection by the Associated Press (second team). Along with the entire defense, secured a share of Defensive Player of the Week honors for their contributions towards the team performance against Michigan State.

CB

Texas 

11/2017: Boyd is the most physical Corner in this Draft. A 4.45 is a Day Two number for him. A 6.94 3-Cone and 4.08 Short Shuttle are Patriot numbers for him. Smooth hips in transition. Spread his feet on click, but closed well. No drop in first gauntlet. One drop in 2md Gantlet. At his size he could play some FS. Nice bmp and run CB. The more physical it gets the better he looks.

He is a big CB who can cover the smaller guys. He is tough against the run on the edge. He can get the RB behind the line on runs to his side. He will struggle against small fast guys. He is quick as a waterbug and he likes to get physical. He got abused by Hollywood, who just never stops running deep. You have to be read to run a marathon when you cover that guy. Great size speed Corner. He can really move. He knows how to slow WRs right at the LOS.

ILB 

Notre Dame

02/2019: Good job setting the edge. He is more of a 4-3 OLB. He knows how to send RBs back inside where he has help. Terrific tackler. Electric to the ball. He can cover RBs outside. He makes plays side to sideline. He was the better of the two Irish ILB on the field, but Tranquil tested through the roof at the Combine. 
He finds the RB on outside runs. He is fast to the sideline, and trash and traffic doesn’t seem to bother him much. He reads the screen fast and works through traffic like a cop, and takes the RB out. He is a sure tackler. He hits in the chest with his facemask and holds on. He is terrific on the Goalline, especially on the wildcat sweep. If it is a matter of speed to the ball, he gets there. 

SENIOR SEASON (2018): Selected as a Midseason All-American by Pro Football Focus (first team) and to Butkus & Nagurski Watch Lists.

FS/CB/Nickel

Maryland

02/2019: Savage has the speed to play FS in the NFL, but he doesn't have the size. He might have to move over to Corner, were he is less of a fit. He will have to add size and strength to stay at FS, and that might take a while. He is developmental guy. Special teams rookie.

He's a hear seeking missile. "I knew I was capable of it," Savage said. about running a 4.36. " I don't think a lot of other people knew, I was just doing what I've been doing. Just working hard and allowing everything to happen itself." He has the speed that teams need. He's a great hitter, who stayed healthy at 188 pounds. Not sure he can do that in the NFL.
That could get him drafted in the 2nd. "I felt as if I already tested well enough at the combine," Savage said. "I just wanted to come here and be able to be with my team again. This is the first time we've all been together in the same place for a long time. Just being here is a great experience." He did not work out at his Proday. But he made on impression.
He compared himself to Alabama's Eddie Jackson. "I feel like we all have a good chance of making an NFL team," Savage said. "I know those guys are working just as hard as I am. I'm praying for them." Jackson was a lot bigger than he is. He's a good character guy. 

He has to get bigger and stronger, and likely will have to be a back up as a rookie. "He's not the biggest guy but he plays bigger than that size," Daniel Jeremiah said. “[He] drives on football, makes plays, big hits. Go back, watch him [against] Ohio State, you'll see everything you need to see." Terrific quick pedal, Good hips. Which is good, because at his size he is a Corner. He's not a plug and play dude. You have to route for this kid.
He is still closer friends with DJ Moore. "DJ and I have been going against each other for a long time, even in high school and college as well," Savage said. "Both of us just love competition and I think we bring the best out of each other." A lot of guys are going to be looking at his Tape after the Combine.  I love how he hits.  He is a heat seeking missile.

OLT

West Virginia

02/2019: He is a guy a team could take a chance on in the 1st if they think he can play OLT in the NFL. A lot of guys see him as a First, but I'm not convinced yet. He will get over aggressive sometimes and loose his balance. He plays better as the game goes on. He looks like an OLT in the 2nd Half. 

He has a nice burst off the snap in the run game. He gets a nice initial hit in first. Nice seal blocker and puncher to seal the D-end outside. Nice job using his initial hit to turn and seal the DE outside. Nice job hitting the DE on his way to the OLB on tosses. Nice job blocking down on the 5-Tech who won't line up in front of him. Nice zone blocker across the field. 

He has quick feet, but he can loose control of them moving backwards. He needs some technique work on his kickslide. He will grab shirt on play action after he turns the DE. Nice quick feet moving backwards, but needs to slide. Gets hands out way too wide too often, and will slap the outside shoulders of the DE on Tape. That is his biggest flaw in his technique. 

2018: 2018 (RS-Sr.): FWAA All-American (Second Team). Phil Steele All-America (Second Team). Athlon Sports All-America (Fourth Team). Big 12 Conference Co-Offensive Lineman of the Year. All-Big 12 Conference First Team (AP, Coaches). All-Big 12 Conference First Team (Phil Steele).

Paved the way for the offense to average 512.3 yards of total offense per game, ranking No. 2 in the Big 12 and No. 8 nationally. Part of the offense that averaged 40.3 points per game, No. 2 in the Big 12 and No. 10 nationally. Member of an offense which was No. 2 in the Big 12 and No. 4 nationally for most passing yards per game (351.3)

OL

Oklahoma

02/2019: He can turn the DT inside, and keep driving him sideways. Nice job sealing inside behind the OC, and then collapsing the line. I like how he moves backwards. He still is a little thin and has to add size. He gets bent back by the huge DT, but holds on and doesn’t let him break him. He has experience playing all over the line. Nice balance and plays at arms length in pass pro. Nice bend and gets real low and under bigger DTs in pass pro. 
2018: Named a second-team All-American by the AFCA and AP ... named Tri-Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year by league’s coaches ...

OT 

South Carolina

03/2019: Nice job blocking down on the DT in run game. He can get the outside shoulder of the DT with a great first step, and shove him sideways down the line. He slides inside a lot to block the DT. When he gets a nice initial burst back, he has a smooth slide against speed in pass pro. He needs to be more consistent off the snap. He takes the inside blitzer a lot, and leaves the DE to the TE. 

Love his hands when he turns and slams the DT. He plays with better balance and agility as the game goes on. He has to stop looking past the man he is blocking. He keeps peeking at other guys who look like they are blitzing, instead of concentrating solely on the D-end. Nice job holding onto the rush, when they jam his back by his neck and facemask. 

He can shadow the speed rusher outside when he moves out laterally instead up field and jab him when he starts to go up field. Looks smoother and more athletic in the 2nd half than the 1st. He can hop forward to the 2nd level and give the LB a great impact. Nice turn and seal, and then punch the DE upfield on the Dive. Lets go of the DL early a lot. 

He needs to play through the whistle. Likes to use his elbows too much, and needs to grab shirt and not box a guy out. He looks real bad when he looses his balance. He will end up on the ground sometimes. He will stand up off the snap. Tries one handed blocks too much. Needs to move his feet a little better to dance and sustain his block. Over extends too much, and can loose balance when the DL clubs his hands off his shirt. He has to stay and play in better balance. 

I don't like their blocking scheme. But they have do a lot of different things. They should let him line up and just kickslide back against the DE instead of trying to trick the defense all the time. When the DE lines up right in front of him he stones him easy. He will get out of his stance quick, and wait for the rusher sometimes. Terrific job on the Stunt. He beats up on DTs. He might have to start inside at OLG as a rookie. 

07/2018: Nice job pushing up with his hands in kickslide. Great lateral burst when the QB rolls out to his side. He can get outside the DE in a flash and block him inside. I need to see that burst more often. He gets confused in his technique sometimes, because he is asked to do something different almost every play. He will line up in a two-point stance almost behind the OLG sometimes. 

Overview: Left guard who protects the quarterback’s blind side... transferred in after two seasons at Georgia Military College and quickly earned his way into a starting role at left tackle in 2018... started 23 of the last 24 games... graduated in December with a degree in interdisciplinary studies... invited to the NFL Combine following his senior season.
2018: One of four seniors selected by their peers for the Unselfish Teammate Award for the offense... started the first seven games of the 2018 season and was back in the lineup for the last five games... left midway through the Tennessee victory with an ankle injury and did not travel to Ole Miss... invited to the Senior Bowl all-star game following the season.

CB

Michigan State

03/2019: Smooth pedal. Smooth hips. He was terrific in transition drill. Terrific high pointing the ball and catching it over his head. Needs work on click and close. Good acceleration out of break. No drop in first gauntlet. No drop in 2nd gauntlet. He can play the ball in the air. He played some WR at MSU in 2016, and last season. 

He can get beat over the top when he doesn't get his hands on the WR. But he will play finesse Press a lot. Not a pure burner. Nice hips to turn and run. Nice COD in space. He can play the ball in the air from behind when he is running stride for stride with a WR. Excellent ball skills. Might be a FS, He has everything you want in a CB, except that extra gear to run with the speed guys deep. He could a target of the Pats on Day 3. He reminds me of Logan Ryan, who the Pats stole in the 3rd (I put him at pick 83 for a reason;). 

He has safety size, and looks like a FS tackling the RB in the backfield. He can give up too much space on In cuts. Over protects the outside when on the QB's right. He'll make mental errors. Protects the deep field on the QB right obsessively. Likes to sidesaddle in Off, so he can see the QB and the WR. He will Press sometimes, and can get physical in the route. He can step in front of the WR and knock the ball down. He can grab WR's arms as the ball arrives.

*Kaden Smith- 6-5, 305, #75

TE

Stanford

08/2018: Smith is a very good blocker. He has that knack for getting through traffic to find his assignment, and block him out of the run. Blocks with terrific balance, and can get inside the OLB, and push him further outside and hold on for as long as his RB needs to cut off his block. He can lined up in a Bunch outside, and find the OLB, and fight him until the RB has slashed past him. 
He can get open running a flag route to the third level. Lines up inline, and take off down the seam with some interesting speed. Not the quickest burst outside on the Out from the slot. Great receiver going down the Seam. He has that knack for finding the holes in the Zone. Great job taking the outside shoulder of the DB, when he is lined up out wide. He can run through the over-aggressive grab by the Will, and break open on the flag route for a catch on the third level. Knows how to use the ref as a pick. Crosses over the middle a lot. He can run those slot patterns to get open underneath. 

Nice job getting to the second level and blocking the CB. He has good hands. He lost weight to become more of a receiver. He has some nice speed down the seam. He can leap up and snag the high one in front of the Safety. 

Of course, the problem is the Stanford Juniors don't usually declare. They stay in school. 

As a Sophomore (2017): Pac-12 All-Academic honorable mention. 14 games played. 23 catches for 414 yards and five touchdowns. 18.0 yards/catch. Four catches for 55 yards and a touchdown in collegiate debut vs. Rice. Two catches for 25 yards at USC. One catch for 20 yards vs. UCLA. One catch for 22 yards vs. Arizona State. Two catches for 57 yards, including 54-yard reception at Utah. One catch for 10 yards vs. Oregon. Two catches for 37 yards, 25-yard reception on fourth down with under two minutes remaining at Oregon State. Three catches for 43 yards and a 17-yard touchdown vs. Cal.

Penn State

02/2019: I really like this kid. He reminds me of Deion Lewis. He gets low on COD. Great feet. As quick as he wants to be. Easy catcher. Easy athlete. Not the fastest in pattern. Makes it look easy catching the deep ball. Nice wheel route. Great job reversing direction. He is a great athlete. 

He had some fumbling issue in 2017. But they also lined him up in the Slot as the Slot guy to get him on the field as well. He will be a weapon in the passing game in the NFL. He is so slippery between the tackles. He has some shake and bake in traffic. 

Terrific catching the ball out of the backfield. He will play Wildcat QB sometimes on short yardage. Very effective, even when everyone knows he is running it. Excellent blocker in pass pro. He can take out the LB blitzing up the gut and throw him to the ground. Nice job picking up the OLB and washing him past the QB.

Notre Dame

02/2019: Nice tackler. A team is going to take him because he can cover TEs down the seam. He adds nicely to the cover team. Strong upper body. He has some movement skills. He can move and laterally. He can sink his hips. Nice feet. Nice burst out of pedal. He has some snap in his hips. Looked like he could be great in coverage. He looked good in coverage drills. 

He might be able to start as a rookie. He had a great one handed catch at the Combine. He is the real deal. He looked like a 2nd Round pick to me during the season, and at the Combine. He had 31 1/2" Arms, which are a little short. That was about his only negative at the Combine. He made a ton of money at the Combine. Rare athlete for a 4-3 LB. He made a ton of money at Combine. 

SENIOR SEASON (2017): Played in and started all 13 games. In first season at linebacker after converting from safety, totaled 85 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, three fumble recoveries, four passes defended, one interception and one forced fumble. Third on the team in solo tackles (44), assisted tackles (41) and total tackles. Led the team in fumble recoveries. Second on the team in TFLs. 

Spearheaded 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. Part of a linebacker group (which also included Te’von Coney, Nyles Morgan and Greer Martini) that all registered at least 75 tackles—a first in school history.

11/2018: Good job pulling behind the OC, and knocking the DT down. Great playing at arms length in pass pro. They love to run behind this guy. For a team with five alleged all-Americans it is Ben they want to run behind. 

I love how he consistently moves forward in run game. He is so squat and low that he plays with great natural leverage. Nice job grabbing shirt inside the numbers, and holding on. He can grab the DT in the rush, and torque him to the ground with power from the hips. He is strong as an Ox.

Alabama 

08/2017: He is the leader and signal caller of the Alabama defense. "I was like, 'Alright, it’s my defense. I’ve got to take control,'" Mack said. "I’ve got to be that alpha dog Coach Saban wants me to be. So, it’s just something I take full pride in because he doesn’t just say that about anybody, you know." He led the defense to the Champ game two years in a row.

Plays action hurts him. "It was Shaun Dion, it was Rashaan, it was Reuben, C.J., Dont'a, Rolando," Mack said. "It goes along the line, and those guys reached out to me and were like, ‘It’s your time, it’s your defense.’ It’s something I take full pride in and I’m going to make sure that all of us are on the same page and we play fast and I’ll get all the checks and calls for the whole defense." He can come in and takeover the signal calling. 

He is a run first ILB. "We need Mack to really be the guy on defense for us this year when it comes to the leadership and how he effects other people," Saban said. "Very athletic, very good player. I don't have any questions about his ability to do what he needs to do at his position to be successful. But how he affects other people is going to be critical as well." He makes his teammates better. 

Terrific job finding the RB in traffic. "I think that remains to be seen," Saban said. "I think there is quite a bit of responsibility that goes with being a leader. I think you have to have a lot of maturity. Got to have a lot of mental toughness. You’ve got to have a lot of discipline. You’ve got to set a good example. You’ve got to care about other people, and I think Mack has the potential to do all those things and I think he’s made progress in doing it." He will be a leader in the NFL as well.

Gary Jennings- 6-2, 215, #12

WR 

West Virginia

02/2019: He was better than Sills all week at the Senior Bowl Then he got in the game in the 4th quarter, and caught a 54-yard bomb from Jackson. Great running a slant in the Redzone, for a TD at the SB. Jackson threw him a rocket, and he caught it out in front of him. He had a great week at the SB, and made a lot of money. If he can show the field speed he showed at the SB on the track at the Combine, He could go Day Two.  

He played some big slot guy at the SB. The Pats will have to look at him in the 3rd, maybe? His speed at the Combine is going to decide where he goes. Great speed. He was running by CBs at the Senior Bowl like they had lead in his pants. That was not what he was doing at WVU. He was in more of a slot role. He made a ton of money at the SB, because he showed he could play outside and inside. 
2018 (Sr.): Started all 13 games at inside receiver. All-Big 12 Honorable Mention (WR). Ranks No. 6 in WVU history in career receiving yards (2,294) and No. 7 in career receptions (168). Fourth on WVU’s single-season receiving TD list with 13. Leads the team with 917 receiving yards. Sits No. 2 in the Big 12 and No. 5 in the country with 13 receiving touchdowns. Ranks No. 7 in the Big 12 in receiving yards per game (83.4) and No. 10 in receptions per game (4.9). Ranks No. 7 in the Big 12 in scoring (7.1). Caught seven passes for a career-high 225 yards and two touchdowns vs. Oklahoma, including a career long 75-yard TD; it was his seventh career 100-yard game. His 225 receiving yards against the Sooners are tied for No. 2 on WVU’s single-game receiving list. 
2017 (Jr.): Started all 13 games at inside receiver. All-Big 12 Conference Second Team. WVU Offensive Player of the Year. Saw 834 snaps on offense in 2017.

11/2017A strange thing happen on the way to have five 1st round picks on the Wisconsin O-line. None of them have looked like a 1st Round picks early in the season. Benzschawel  has played the best, and he is an ORG. It is very tough for a team to take an ORG in the 1st .

Edwards still is ending up on the ground too much. Winovich threw him to the ground on the first three plays against Michigan. He seems to end up on the ground more than he last to the end of the play standing, but he mostly holds on and keeps his man out of the play. NFL DLs are going to eat this guy alive.

11/2017: He has some interesting quicks off the snap. Nice long arms. Plays ORT, so how does he go in the First? Great job stepping inside and stuffing the 5-Tech. WVU stopped rushing his lane in the 2nd half. Nice job catching the DE rushing up field, and driving him back on the run inside. He has some power to his game.

He will have to show that he can play OLT at the Senior Bowl if he wants to go in the 1st. He has all the traits to play OLT in the NFL. But he still has to prove it. Great long arms. Smooth sliding backwards. He really looks the part, and has shown he can play the part on the right side. I have absolutely no doubt he is an NFL OT. He has to prove to me that he can play OLT at the SB. It will be a huge opportunity for him.

He knows how to get open in pattern, which is the number one trait for an NFL WR. He was averaging almost 25-yards per catch. He had two great TDs against heir biggest rival Oregon. He got both TDs, not through his elite size, but by running patterns. He used his speed in pattern on the first, which was a 50+-yard catch. And quickness in pattern on the second, with a great inside-out move in the End zone. He has been injured and didn't perform at the Combine. 
He is big and tall, and he has big strong hands to s nag the ball. "It doesn’t matter who’s on me or how many people are around me, if the ball's coming my way, you have to get it because you don’t know when the next one’s coming," Arcega-Whiteside said. "Those 50/50 balls, we want to make them 60/40, 70/30. The jump balls, even though I did catch a lot, I left some on the field. I wanted to catch all of them." He played basketball and shows that Vert to go up and rebound the ball in traffic on the field.  
His size and speed make him unstoppable on deep throws. "As much as anybody I’ve ever been around [he's the best in single coverage]," HC David Shaw said. "Regardless who the DB is, particularly downfield, we have to be able to take those shots. He’s proven time and again that he can make those plays."
Good blocker on 2nd and 3rd levels.  
He get way up over smaller CBs. "He’s a basketball player, He’s taking the ball off the rim" his QB Costello said. "There’s not a lot of wideouts that I’ve come across that have his knack and ability to position themselves properly countless-countless times in between the corner, outside the corner, sometimes slipping inside but still staying wide away from the safety." But he also beats them in route, and with speed and quickness.  

As a Senior (2018): Team captain. Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week (Sept. 4). Biletnikoff Award watch list. Six catches, 226 receiving yards and three touchdowns (38, 19 and 80 yards) vs. San Diego State. Third-most receiving yards in a single-game in program history. Four catches for 62 yards vs. USC. Three catches for 36 yards and two touchdowns (9 and 8 yards) vs. UC Davis. Four catches for 84 yards and two touchdowns (13 and 15 yards) at Oregon. Five catches for 30 yards, including a four-yard touchdown at Notre Dame
As a Junior (2017): All-Pac-12 honorable mention. Team-high 48 receptions. Team-high 781 receiving yards. Team-high nine receiving touchdowns. Second among Pac-12 players. 25th nationally. Team-high 65.1 receiving yards.

RB

Ohio ST

02/2019: Love this kid. Leader. Sacrificed for the team. Terrific blocker in pass pro. Won time back after loosing starting spot to younger dude. Dominated when they put him in.  Never complained. Lots of tread still on tires. Still stayed for his senior year. Great forty. Great cuts. Runs with eyes up. 

Nice burst out of cuts. It was easy to forget that he is a big back watching him in COD. Nice job snagging the bad pass behind him. He can catch the deep ball away from his body. One of the most impressive RBs in this Draft. Great catcher with the ball over his head while trucking down field. A 4.47 Forty is a great number for him. He is a 2nd Round pick. 

He has that great vision to see the cutback lane, when the defense has swarmed over the side he was running too. Great feet and faster at the lighter weight. He can make the ultra quick spin move that allows him to beat four defenders to the edge.

Ohio State Overview: Mike Weber is an outstanding running back who ran for over 1,000 yards as a freshman, added another 600-plus yards during a sophomore season that was slow to start because of injury, and is now healthy and ready to be a big-time producer for the Buckeyes … he and sophomore J.K.

Ohio State

02/2019: Not super nifty in space. He has some speed to the outside. Great impact on pull. He has some serious power on the move. I like him in mirror drill. Starting OLG the OSU O-line is relying on. He could be a solid Day Three pick for someone. He has monstrous size. He moved inside to OC this season and really dominated. Great power in his hands. He can grab the DT, and twist him to the ground with pure size and strength. He is an Andy Reid type OL.

Ohio State Overview: Michael Jordan proved to be one of the top offensive linemen in the country as a true junior in 2018, earning first-team All-America honors by both CBS Sports and SI.com … he was named second-team all-Big Ten Conference … and after helping the Buckeyes to back-to-back Big Ten Conference championships in 2017 and 2018, to three victories over Michigan and to wins over No. 9 Washington in the 2019 Rose Bowl and No. 8 USC in the 2018 Cotton Bowl, he elected to give up his final season of eligibility and declared for the NFL Draft … Jordan was outstanding as a Buckeye … he played in every game between 2016 and 2018 – 41 in all – and started every one of them … in 2016, Jordan was the first true freshman to start along the Ohio State offensive line in 23 years, or since Orlando Pace did so in 1994 … he is one of only six Ohio State Buckeyes to start an opening game as a true freshman … he played guard his first two seasons and moved to center for the 2018 campaign … he was named first-team all-Big Ten in 2017 by the league’s coaches … he helped Buckeye offense lead the Big Ten in rushing for a third consecutive season at 243.2 yards per game in 2017 as well (17th nationally) … Jordan was an early enrollee into classes at Ohio State in January 2016 and worked his way into the starting lineup – and stayed – midway through 2016 spring drills … started all 13 games at right guard and helped the team rank 11th nationally and first in the Big Ten in rushing at 245.2 yards per game … he was named a freshman All-American … completed a 180-hour internship the summer of 2018 with Munster Financial … he was working on a major in consumer and family financial services. .

RB/3rd Down

Memphis

2018: Henderson is all flash and dash. He was the All-American RB. you gotta see his stats to believe them. He garnered 1,909 yards, 22 TDs on 214 rusher for an astonishing 8.9 average! He will go later than he should. Because he is a spread RB, and won't fit every offense. But you put him in a 4-Wide Spread offense, and he will tear NFL defenses up. 

Short squat runner who can run straight up the field and break tackles with his huge thighs. Dude is all thighs. He has the deep speed to outrun the Corner to the Endzone. His average yard per carries shows what a homerun hitter he is. Doesn't block on play action. Avoids blocks on play action. As a pure runner he might be a First. But his refusal to block in pass pro makes him very difficult to put on the field in the NFL. Great eyes to find the holes.

Powers is a Senior because he was a JuCo kid. Team captain. He can grab the big DT and keep him out of the play on the Goal line run. Plays with nice power and balance. He can sink and punch the DT into the OC, and then turn and grab the blitzer curl behind the DT and stone him. This guy is going to be a good one in the NFL. Solid in pass pro. He gets low and wide, and strikes with both hands with nice force.

DL

TCU

09/2018: Collier is a big thick D-end. He looks like a 5-Tech at 283-poundds. But he is an Edge guy. Heavy hitter. Great quick hands. Needs to learn to use them better. He did not look like an OLB. He can really move in space. He garnered 4 PBU last season to along with 6 Sacks. He is a little short, but has nice long arms. He can hold the point with his arms.

Heavy hands. Knows how to use them. Big DE, who played better outside than inside at DT. Might have some 3-Tech in him. Great swim to advance to the ball carrier. Greasy and tough to block. His squat low frame helps him get under blocks. Wins ugly. He's one of the three guys (Ledbetter and Omenihu) I see as guys that fit the Flower-Wise DE mold in the 4th Round for the Pats.
He is in the big D-end mode around the 4th Round that has been interesting the Pats the past few Draft, and they have shown interest.
Do not sleep on this guy. He played mostly DT at TCU. He moved outside to DE as a Senior. He has some flash and quicks outside. I like the way he turns the corner. He flashes some Flowers with bursts inside. Red Shirt Senior.

Not a great initial burst. But shows explosion sometimes. He needs to be coached up a little. Only garnered 6 Sacks and 11.4 TFLs. But he also had 4 PBUs. Reminds me of Flowers a lot. Flowers was a little slipperier. Collier is a little twitchier. Nice closing burst like Flowers. Both are outside guys who win inside. He is not going to test the edge and win consistently.

OLB/DE

Florida

02/2019: I'm not sure he's a top 16 pick at 6-2, but his name keeps coming up. "One of the best D-ends right now in the SEC, and as the season goes on, one of the best D-ends in the country," Chauncey Gardner-Johnson said. “He got the size of Von Miller in him, Khalil Mack. He can do everything. He can drop in coverage. He can blitz. He can contain, just hold his own. But a lot of guys think they can bully him around because of his body size, but he’s pretty strong on the edge." He is better against the run than I thought. 

He has the elite explosion to get to the QB as fast as anyone. "He’s going to be a 1st-rounder,” FLA DT T.J. Slaton said. "He has the best close out of anybody on this team. Anybody on our defense, he closes the best." That matters in the NFL. Arm length less than 33" for an Edge guy is disastrous. 

He is stronger and tougher than you'd think, and he played some DT at FLA. "Coach Rumph. He just wanted to maximize my potential," Polite said. "I was kind of big, I was like 270, 268. So he just wanted me to get on the field some way, somehow. I played 3-tech and also end in a 4-3 scheme, so it was just more experience for me." He was a part-time rusher to start the season, but I do love his bend. 
Overview: Finished his career with 78 tackles, 26.5 tackles-for-loss, 15.5 sacks, eight forced fumbles and four pass break ups in 32 games played… Became the fourth Gator in history with at least eight career forced fumbles, joining Clifford Charlton (15 –1984-87), Guss Scott (11 – 2000-03), and Alex Brown (9 – 1997-2001)

2018: Declared for the NFL Draft following the season… Appeared in all 13 games and started five… Recorded 45 tackles on the season and led the team with 17.5 TFL, 11 sacks and six forced fumbles… Led the FBS and tied Charlton’s 1986 single-season school record with six forced fumbles… One of two players in the country to record at least five forced fumbles and 10-plus sacks… Fell just 0.5 tackles-for-loss shy of tying Alex Brown’s 1999 season for the 10th-highest single-season total in school history… He and his teammate Jabari Zuniga became the first pair of Gators with at least 11 tackles-for-loss in a season since the trio of Jon Bullard (17.5), Antonio Morrison (12.0) and Jarrad Davis (11.0) all reached that mark in 2015... They are also the first pair of Gators defensive linemen to reach that total in a season since Jaye Howard (12.0) and Justin Trattou (11.0) did it in 2010… Earned SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week honors following Florida’s win at Mississippi State after he recorded three tackles, two sacks and one pass breakup… Garnered Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week following UF’s win at FSU when he totaled six tackles, 3.5 tackles-for-loss and 2.5 sacks… Named a Semifinalist for the Bednarik Award Semifinalist… Picked up First Team All-SEC honors from the league’s Coaches, AP, Athlon Sports, ESPN and Phil Steele… Garnered Third Team All-America accolades by Phil Steele… Earned Second Team All-America honors by the AP.

3-Tech

Ohio ST

07/2018: He can shove the OG to the ground right off the snap. "The guy who probably had the best spring of anybody on our team is Dre'Mont Jones," OSU HC Urban Meyer said. "He was outstanding. For a guy to come back when a lot of people thought he should leave, a lot of times we have to deal with, whether it be effort issues or 'Why am I doing this?' [Off and on field] Issues" [He has] zero. And that’s a credit to his family and [DL coach] Larry Johnson. He had a great spring. And if he continues his development, he can be one of the best in America at what he does." Excellent reacting and redirecting when the play breaks down and directions change. 

When the O-line doesn't block him, he goes instantly for the QB. "Dre'Mont has gone to another level," Johnson said. "He understands what it takes to be a great player. The reason he came back was because he wants to be a great player. And to do that you’ve got to go to work. And the way he is working right now, it’s off the charts." Good stack and shed player. 

I think he is better one gapping. "He did not come into the spring to try to get through it like a lot of guys would who have the talent and have had the kind of season he had last year," Schiano said. "He came through the spring trying to improve his game, and he did that.... And if he continues his development, he can be one of the best in America at what he does." But they do have him stack, read, and shed. And he does it well. 

It is hard to believe with all the DLs they had drafted last year that they have another two elite DL prospects. "The physical aspects, I feel like I could have done well, football-wise," Jones said. "But mentally I felt like I wasn’t there. I felt like I needed the extra maturity for my mind, and then your body will come along with it. I just felt like I needed an extra year really to just grow. D-tackle is a very taxing position. I need to develop my body as much as I can." Jones was their best inside DL last season.  

He will line up on both sides of the OC. He seems more comfortable on the Strong side. He can hold the point against the double, drop to one knee, get up, and still get his hand on the RB. Terrific spin move on the Nose that he uses to break free to the QB. Very aggressive, and gets suckered by the Screen a little too easily sometimes. 

He will line up on the Nose. Plays with forceful hands, and hip torque. Likes to grab the OC, and shove him off to the left, as he breaks right. Very quick off the snap. He will line up at DT, and can beak outside the ORG in a flash. Very quick hands to grab blockers arms and shove them off. 
Ohio State Overview: Back-to-back terrific seasons has positioned fourth-year junior defensive tackle Dre’mont Jones as one of the top defenders on the Ohio State defense for the 2018 season … the veteran of 25 games and 23 starts has 72 career tackles and nine tackles-for-loss, for losses totaling 26 yards … Jones earned third-team all-Big Ten Conference honors in 2017 and he was named a game “champion” by OSU coaches seven times last season, including player of the game honors vs. UNLV … he red-shirted the 2015 season and then had a breakthrough season in 2016 when he moved into a starting defensive tackle position as a red-shirt freshman and was a 12-game starter by season’s end … Jones finished as the team’s leading tackler among defensive line players with 52 total tackles as a freshman … registered a personal-best eight stops in the overtime win at Wisconsin and seven in the overtime win over Michigan … he is a two-time OSU Scholar-Athlete who is majoring in sociology … spent a week this past summer in Manchester, N.H., interning with the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Notable Note: Jones is one of three freshmen defensive linemen – the others are Dan Wilkinson (10 starts in 1992) and Luke Fickell (12 starts in 1993) – to start 10 or more games during a freshman season. Jones started 12 in 2016.

Dre;Mont Jones Vs Michigan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iY7S3AsTNkc

Great look as his great blast off into the backfield (:04). I think 3-Tech is his best NFL position. A one-gapping team will be looking at him closely (:10). Terrific hustle to shove off the two blockers, and then get to the opposite sideline in front of the RB. Not a lot of DTs can do that (:16). Stack and shed with a quick arm over (:24). Then two more blockers hit him. When a guy is tripled, he is the guy the coaches have pointed out. 

He is a half a step ahead of everyone off the snap on almost every play (:30). He gets the inside shoulder of the OG with his great initial burst. Then watch the great agility as he spins back off the block when he saw the pitch (1:06). Another quick spin that got him in better position (1:12). This is the best play of the game. Un-Friggin'-Believable  (1:18). He fights through four blockers to get his hands on the RB, and brings him down. 

He is just so quick and agile. Watch the quicks as he breaks back behind the play action. Then the great agility to spin back inside the RB (1:30). He takes on three blockers at the point to stuff the goal line run. But he fell back as he grabbed the ball carrier (1:36). Watch the quick hip torque to shove off the blocker and grab the RB to almost get the TFL (1:59). Just watch the great instincts and hustle on this play (2:06). He just has to show he can dominate like that as a full time player this season, and has to turn those elite physical traits into Stats.

DE/5-Tech

Texas 

11/2018: He is a terrific talent. He gets as low as you wanna go in his stance. I have trouble believing he is 6-7. He uses his great long arms to stack and shed in the run game. He is as explosive out of the shed as I have ever seen. He is a remarkable edge product.

He plays 5-Tech for Texas, not the EDGE. He lines up most of the time in front of the  ORT, and often shaded inside of him. I would love to see him as a straight up edge guy. He is the type of big athletic D-end BB has been drafting for the D-line the past few years. Not really a speed rusher, but a power EDGE with the enough speed and technique to get to the QB fast.

Overview: A fourth-year defensive end who has played in 46 career games with 28 starts … chosen to compete in the 2015 Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl … rated the No. 15 weakside DE in the nation by Rivals ... member of the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll (fall 2016) … named third team preseason All-Big 12 by Athlon Sports.

TE

Texas A&M

02/2019: Sternberger is more of a big Slot-guy/H-back. He is not a good blocker. He lined up all over the place and showed he could get open like a Slot guy, and inline like a TE. But he mostly was a space guy. Nice inside release off the line to run past OLB and get open down the Seam. He has some work to do, but he could be valuable weapon soon enough. 

He ran into his own man trying to block against Kentucky. Nice job curling into the hole on the weakside form the Strongside and hitting the LB in the hole. He doesn't always sustains blocks as long as you like, but he is a good hitter leading the RB. Blocks down on the DL a lot, and then slips off to go and hit an LB. That is the best thing he does on the field. A 7.17 3-Cone is a good number for a TE. 

He will line up as the H-back outside the ORT, and can kickslide back in pass pro. He is very smooth moving back in pass pro. He can cut off the Blitzer, and take him out of the rush. He understands leverage in pattern, and how to get inside shoulder of the OLB, and break open inside. 

He has short arms for a TE. He won the off season work out award at A&M last year, but he still has to get a lot stronger. 17 Reps is not cool for a TE dude. But I wouldn't knick him for that. They all need to get stronger.

*Ryan Finley- 6-4, 210, #15, 6th-year Senior

QB

NC ST

02/2019: He had a good not great season last year. He is an older grumpier prospect. Teams want young athletic guys at QB. He is neither. He has been in college for six seasons, and looks like he is in Brady's class athletically (which is not a compliment;). If he makes it to the 3rd he could be a Patriot. Pats need a guy who can fight it out  with Etling to be the heir apparent. It is time. He has it mentally, which really is more important in the NFL. But he is going to fail the Combine (like Brady;).  

07/2018: Who knows who what when or where the Pats will take a QB in this Draft, but I know they will. So I thought I'd start off with Finley. Who has two essential qualities: the ability to take a big hit and complete the next pass, and the ability to come through in the clutch. 

He is a fifth year Graduate transfer with another year of eligibility left. "I really haven't heard much actual information about that, Finley said about his Draft prospects. "I’ve tried to focus on the season and when that happens, it happens." So he could still stay in school, though he did get his Masters this year. 

Nice timing on slants. Stares down his first option too much sometimes. He does a great job seeing the play is over, and charging forward for whatever he can get. "I'm excited about the opportunity either way, to leave for the NFL or to come back," Finley said. "To finish my senior year, I heard somebody say it's a champagne problem. So I'm excited about the opportunity I have." Smart and poised in the collapsing pocket. 

He garnered 3,200 yards and 16 TDs, while completing 63.9% of his passes and only 6 INTs. "It’s probably going to kill me to watch the film," Finley said after he completed 80% of his passes for 341-yards and 3 TDs against Marshall. "There are a lot of plays, personally I wish I could have back." Perfectionist who is never happy with his performance.  

Takes to hard coaching. "He’s hard on himself because I’m so hard on him," Drinkwitz said. "He missed the first three throws. He needs to make those throws, and he knows it. But he did rebound really well." He always seems too. 

He will toss the option a little late sometimes. "Ryan is playing the same way he has the last three games," NC ST HC Dave Doeren said. "He’s managing the offense. He’s giving his receivers a chance. He’s not making mistakes with the ball and hurting our team. [He's throwing] very accurate, throws catchable balls, very intelligent. He’s having a heck of a year." Very nice feet in the pocket. 

When he leans to a side he will loose a little control. When he rushes it he can lose his mechanics and accuracy. He can really throw a great touch pass down the sideline to his outside WR. He keeps the ball a little too much on option runs. Knows when to throw it away. He does a great job throwing the high pass to his tall WR, so the little CB can't touch it. 

He has some serious clutch in him. "I think it’s just all up to that player and what they feel," Finley said. "Whether they want to come back or whether they don’t. Whether they feel they have more to prove at this level or not. I don’t know. We’ll have to cross that bridge when it’s over." He comes through in the 4th quarter when his team needs him. 

He can make the great throw with a blitzer coming straight up the gut to kill him, and he knows he is going to get hurt. Nice accurate thrower over the middle on the 3rd level. He has a great arm. When he is hot he looks like the best QB in the Draft. He can take the big hit and complete the next pass. 

AS A RS - JUNIOR (2017): Named to the Academic All-ACC team for his performance last season. He earned a 3.889 GPA while pursuing a Master’s degree in liberal arts.
