Dru Samia- 6-5, 303, #75

ORG/ORT

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 ... Polynesian Player of the Year finalist ... a first-team All-Big 12 selection by league’s coaches and the AP ... member of an OU offensive line unit that won Joe Moore Award ... an Academic All-Big 12 Second Team selection ... one of two players to receive team's Don Key award ... started all 14 games at right guard ... did not give up a sack.
2017: A second-team All-Big 12 choice by league's coaches ... an Academic All-Big 12 First Team honoree and a CoSIDA Academic All-District selection ... played in 13 games and made 12 starts (all at right guard) ... saw playing time against Texas (10/14) ... did not play against Iowa State (10/7) due to injury.
2016: An honorable mention All-Big 12 selection by league's coaches ... started all 13 games ... started at right tackle in season opener vs. Houston (9/3) before starting at right guard every game afterward ... played 597 snaps and gave up no sacks ... named to Academic All-Big 12 Second Team.

*Dre'Mont Jones- 6-3, 281, 33 3/4"A, (O) 5.12, 7.71 3-C, 4.53 SS, 31.5"V, 9'2"Br

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.

*Darrell Henderson- 5-8, 208, (O) 4.49, 33.5"Vert! 10'1"Broad,

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.

*Dennis Daley- 33.3"Arms, 20 Reps, (O) 5.23, 26,5"V, 8'7"Br, 7.95 3-cone, 4.92 SS

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.

*John Cominski- 6-5 1/4, 286, (U) 4.66-4.71, 7.03 3-Cone, 4.38 SS, 33.5" Vert,  

DL

Charleston

09/2018: Cominski is a freak athlete with size, but is very underdeveloped. "He is really athletic for a kid that size, so he is a mismatch against guards because he is so athletic," Renner said. "He can really run. Teams right now are really intrigued by the athlete and the tools. It’s going to be, how quickly can he put it together to rise to the occasion against better competition? But he’s dominated at the D-II level like you want to see a D-II guy do. Teams are enamored with his athleticism." He played at a much lower level. 

He stood out a little at the Senior Bowl "Him going to the Senior Bowl is big because he’s lining up and playing a couple of different things up front," Santolla said. "And he’s lining up and playing against guys who are going to be first-round draft picks that will play offensive line in the NFL." He made an impression athletically. 
He has almost zero variety of moves in the rush, but he has that knack for finding the ball. "The Senior Bowl was way more impressive because it was me playing football, and it was me playing football against way better competition than I had at Charleston," Cominski said. "The chatter really picked up after that because I checked a lot of boxes that I didn’t in college." Work ethic will not be a problem as he tries to develop.

He might have Aaron Donaldson's size and speed, but he's a kindergarten compared to Donaldson technique-wise. "That’s scary stuff at that size," Jeremiah said "That’s 286 pounds running at that time. That is Aaron Donald weight and speed." That comparison sucks. He was an Edge guy at Charlton. 

They moved him inside to 3-Tech, because he couldn't handle the technique outside at the SB. "A lot of people wait to sometimes get the opportunity and then try to work hard," Charlton DL-coach Santolla said. "He’s a guy who worked really hard to get the opportunity, and now that the opportunity is starting to be here, he’s working harder. So he’s going to a whole other level, which I think speaks volumes as to the type of person and the type of work ethic he has." He is so raw that he will need two or three years of development.

Keelan Doss- 6-2, 211, 31 3/4" arms, 8 reps, 

WR

UC Davis

04/2019: He was my favorite WR at the Senior Bowl, I thought he was the best WR at the Senior Bowl all week. Big week at senior bowl. He can get open short, and dive out to snag the fast ball low and away. He made a lot of money at the SB. He is another big WR who played in the Slot at the SB, and has to interesting the Pats. He can run under the high lofted pass, a catch and run with some great speed. Great job tracking the ball. I like how he dived for the ball in the slot, and then rolled forward for extra yards. 

He played well against division I teams. He made plays all game long in the SB. I can’t wait to see his speed at the Combine. Some compare him to Keenan Allen and Cooper Kupp. That is certainly worth a 3rd. Tough running routes. He caught every ball through all the pass interference they allowed in passing drills at the Senior Bowl. He is a starting NFL WR. 

2018: 2019 NFL DRAFT COMBINE PARTICIPANT... REESE'S SENIOR BOWL PARTICIPANT... Led all North squad receivers, who caught two or more passes, with his 13.8 yards per receptions average...

I era, no Aggie has more receiving touchdowns (28), total touchdowns (29) or all-purpose yards than Doss... Finished the 2018 season ranked No. 3 in the nation in receptions per game (9.1), No. 4 in receiving yards (1,334), No. 12 in receiving yards per game (102.6) and No. 26 in receiving TDs (9)... Led all Big Sky players in receptions per game... Doss' seven 100-yard single-game receiving yards total was another Big Sky high... Ranked No. 3 in the conference in receiving yards per game, and that is with opposing teams drafting game plans solely focused on stopping the two-time consensus All-American... Ranked No. 8 in the Big Sky with his 104.7 all-purpose yards per game average... His 16 receptions vs. Sacramento State was a Big Sky single-game high, topping the next ranked total by two catches... Became one of two Big Sky receivers to post a 200-yard receiving total, against Division I competition, when he finished with 205 in the Aggies' rivalry game vs. Sacramento State (11/17), which relocated from UC Davis to Nevada due to poor air quality caused by wildfires throughout Northern California... Of the four 200-yard games recorded throughout the Aggies' Division I era, Doss is responsible for three... Led all Aggies with 106 receiving yards, on 13 catches at Stanford (9/15)... Posted back-to-back 100-yard totals when he finished 150 and 131 at Northern Colorado (10/6) and at home against Idaho State (10/13)... Caught a touchdown in six straight games: vs. Idaho (9/22), at Northern Colorado, vs. Idaho State, at Cal Poly (10/20), at Montana (10/27) and at home vs. Northern Arizona (11/3)... That game against NAU marked the first of two games that he caught two touchdowns; the other took place against Sacramento State... No Aggie wide receiver has more games with two of more receiving touchdowns, throughout the program;'s D-I era, than Doss and his five... One of the Aggies’ three team captains.

Derrick Brown- 6-5, 325, #5,

DT

Auburn

11/2016: A&M doubled him on 8 of the first 10 plays on the opening drive. He plays a lot of NT, and DT on 2-man fronts. He is the guy that run teams have to deal with first. His job is really to absorb the doubles, but he still makes plays and garners stats. When he isn’t double he gets to the QB, and the QB doesn’t recover quickly when he hits them.
Nice job splitting the double in the rush, when he gets a chance. He gets angled out of the play to easy sometimes, but then can throw the OG to the ground. He has to move to the ball better. Nice rip right up the gut.
He is a scary sight when he stunts outside and the ORT doesn’t pick him up. Nice job timing leap to knock the knock the ball down. He is relentless on the field. 

2017: Starter at defensive tackle … 56 tackles for season ... 6 tackles, sack, 1.5 TFL against Georgia Southern … sack, 2 TFL at Clemson … 3 solo tackles, PBU vs. Mercer … 3 tackles vs. Mississippi State … 6 tackles, 2 TFL vs. Ole Miss … 6 tackles at LSU … forced a fumble, 7-yard sack and 2 tackles at Arkansas … team-best 7 tackles at Texas A&M … 4 tackles, sack vs. Georgia … 5 tackles, TFL vs. ULM … forced an Alabama fumble … 4 tackles, TFL in SEC championship ... blocked a UCF field goal attempt in the Peach Bowl ... SEC Academic Honor Roll and Academic Top Tiger ... SEC Student-Athlete Leadership Council for football.

Iman Lewis-Marshall- 6-5/8", 207, (U) 4.51, 30.3" Arms, 16 Reps,

CB/FS

USC 

03/2019: A 4.5 is a Day Two number for him, which is a shame, because he was having a great post season. He had a drop in first gauntlet.  umber for him. He could move to Safety. But he shut guys down last season. Nice quicks in pedal. Cheated drill a little, but he can play the ball in the air. He had high point the ball. He has some burst out of his transition. He can make the adjustment to the ball in the air. He can really close. Good acceleration out of break. No drop in 2nd gauntlet.

He is a big Corner, he should be able to play FS in the NFL. He can be physical in the run game. When they don't line up a WR n his side, he can charge in and tackle the RB at the LOS. Very good ball skills. He can play the ball in the air. That has a lot of value. The Pats could a lot worse than him in the 3rd. 

He garnered 9 PBU, 48 Tackles, and 5.5 TFL last season. He stats seemed to get worse each season, as QB didn't want to throw his way. But grabbing zero INTs as a Senior was not a good number for him. He was a four year starter if the PAC-12. He looked like he was going to be a star his freshman year. 

CAREER: He has 118 tackles, including 3 for losses, plus 17 deflections and 6 career interceptions.

2017: The physical, veteran Marshall returns for his third year as a starting cornerback as a Jr in 2017.

2016: Marshall, coming off a stellar rookie performance in 2015, returned as a starting cornerback as a sophomore in 2016. Overall in 2016 while starting all 13 games, he had 51 tackles, including 3 for losses of 5 yards, 8 deflections and 3 interceptions. He made 2016 Campus Insiders Sophomore All-American honorable mention and All-Pac-12 honorable mention.
2015: Marshall started USC’s final 12 games at cornerback (and appeared in all 14) as a first-year freshman in 2015. Overall in 2015, he had 67 tackles (fourth on USC), a team-best 3 interceptions and a team-best 9 deflections. He was a 2015 USA Today and Sporting News Freshman All-American first teamer.

Marshall

04/2019: Wow! a 4.74 is a terrible number for him. I was about to put him in Day Two. He has Day Two Tape or better. He was ultra productive at Marshall. He started three games as a freshman. I had him ready to go to the Pats. Now I'm completely confused. He showed me he could play at the Senior.

DT

Western Illinois

04/2019: Small school wunderkind whose Tape is terrible. He has terrible eyes on the field. But he was excellent at the Senior Bowl. He was gymnast when he was young. So has elite flexibility, balance, bounce and bend. Not fast moving backwards. But looked like a smooth move going laterally and forward. Nice feet high stepping He can really burst forward. Hands are a little light. Tight to inside bag. Good feet. Sinks his hips well. He played well at SB. He played like his athletic movement skills would indicate. 

I like how he hops outside. Huge NT type. He showed some great movement skills at the SB. Relentless attacker who can knock the OG right back on his butt. Very interesting small school guy. He looked legit at the SB. He could be a steal for a team early on in Day Three. I would take a chance on him. Amazing athlete who can do flips on the field. 

Player Bio: Saunders is a St. Louis native who showed FBS-level talent as soon as he hit the field as a redshirt freshman. He posted 27 tackles, 4.5 for loss, and 2.5 sacks in 13 games as a reserve in 2015. He started all 11 games as a sophomore, posting 48 stops, five for loss, 1.5 sacks, and two pass breakups. Missouri Valley Football coaches named him first-team all-conference in 2017, as he started all 12 games and accumulated 57 tackles, 12 for loss, a team-high 7.5 sacks, and three pass breakups. In 2018 he was named AP FCS second-team All-American.

JUNIOR (2017): Named Honorable Mention Preseason All-Missouri Valley Football Conference…Phil Steele’s All-American list… First Team All-MVFC.

Bennie Snell Jr- 5-11, 223, #72

RB

Kentucky

02/2019: This guy is as tough and elusive as it gets. He is deceptively strong as well. He can help change an offense from day one. He racked up the tough yards in the SEC. Never quits. Runs low, and can run over defenders. Nice speed in the open field. He was the main guy in their Offense this season. 

He was as dominate on offense as Josh Allen was on defense for Kentucky. He was the main cog in their offense, everything worked off him. He can almost hit the line, on the goal line, and then burst suddenly outside and get to the Goalline when there was penetration. Great feet and explosion in lateral bursts. 

Great strong thighs. DLs bounce off his thighs. "He’s been productive for three straight years,” Stoops said. "And he’s meant a lot to us." Very elusive RB. 

They counted on him to close out games. "Our confidence level was very high to run out that clock. I thought our offensive coaches did a great job, and got on the same page and gave Benny an opportunity to get started," coach Stoops said. "So we had some unique sets there and make sure we were cutting off the edges because we knew they were crashing and pinching everybody down and, really, I didn’t see it. It was on the far side. The cutback you had might have popped out. We thought we were going to split one or two. Obviously, he got one for 7 or 8 yards or 9 yards, or whatever it was, but we had an opportunity to crease them there and we knew we could get Benny going give him a shot. So I credit the coaches and I credit Benny and the offensive line."

Junior: As a junior in 2018, Snell rushed for 1,449 rushing yards and scored 16 rushing touchdowns. Snell Jr. became one of four running backs in SEC history to have three consecutive 1,000 rushing yard seasons, the others being Herschel Walker, Darren McFadden, and Alex Collins. Snell Jr. would also become the school's career rushing yards leader after scoring on a 12 yard touchdown run vs. Penn State in the 2019 Citrus Bowl. This 43 year old record, previously held by Sonny Collins, was broken in just 3 seasons by Snell.[3] Snell was voted First Team All-SEC by SEC Coaches.[4] He would announce on December 14, 2018 that he would forego his senior season and enter the 2019 NFL Draft.

9.6 RB

Justice Hill- 5-10, 190, #5

RB

Oklahoma ST

02/2019: He is dynamic with the ball in his hands as any RB in this Draft. "You miss him a lot. You take a guy that's a really, really good player and he's not on your team, it changes some things for us," OK HC Gundy said. " One, you don't have as much depth, but he's a very exciting player and can change a game at any time. So we're not as good of a team without him as we would be with him." Small guy with a big heart. 

Great quicks, burst, and a killer spin move to get outside in traffic. Great speed to take it all the way when he gets a lane. He is one of those short guys, who as small as his height and is tough to bring down. Great cut back runner. He would be great for a Zone scheme team. 

He will look like he is trying to block, but not really block in pass pro. "I didn't feel like Justice would be back next year," Gundy said. " He's pretty far along academically. I thought he was graduating, but he's not. He's pretty close. I'm guessing that he was concerned about durability." He will also fake block, and then burst into pattern.

He does a nice job falling forward for such a small guy. "He’s the best running back in the country coming back," an unnamed HC said. "Dude is a freak show." He is deadly on the Draw. He made a bunch of guys miss on one run. I don't like what he does when the ball isn't in his hands, but he is great with the ball in his hands. 

He will line up in the slot when they go Empty. Man he is quick in the open field, and his hop cutback is fun to watch. He can get low and run over a DB on the 3rd level. My problem with him is that he is a 3rd down back that his QB at OK ST doesn't seem to want to throw the ball to (he threw to him once against OK, and it bounced off his hands), and Hill doesn't seem interested in blocking for his teammates. Four blocks in over fifty passes. 

He is a nice slasher up the middle. "The bad news is when he finishes up he’s probably going to move on, which is good news (for someone else). Somebody’s going to get a fantastic player for a long, long time,” Gundy said. "I saw six or eight running backs on there (a Draft list). And I’m sure they’re all good players, but I’m not taking anybody over him. He’s fantastic." Great burst outside. Great speed with the ball in his hands

He is really a 3rd down back who doesn't catch a lot of passes: 13 receptions in 2018. "It’s awesome for him for his marketability for the NFL is his body," Gundy said. "It’s a rough business and his body will be in tremendous shape when he moves on from here so it’s a win-win for all of us." He stays in to block a ton, and I saw him throw four block. I don't get it with him. Day Three RB. 

Overview: A shifty back with exceptional change-of-direction ability that is one of the nation’s most explosive playmakers ... One of 10 national semifinalists for the 2017 Doak Walker Award presented to the nation’s top running back ... His 2,609 career rushing yards ranks seventh among active players and is first among juniors who play in Power Five conferences ... His 14 career 100-yard rushing games ties for third among all active FBS players returning in 2018 and is second among running backs from the Power Five conferences ... One of only seven players in Oklahoma State history with multiple 1,000-yard rushing seasons ... One of only four OSU running backs - the others being Barry Sanders, Thurman Thomas and Terry Miller - to average at least 100 rushing yards per game in their respective careers (minimum 20 games).

Emanuel Hall- 6-1.7, 201, (O) 4.39, 43.5"Vert! 11'9"Broad! 33 1/4"Arms, 15 reps,

WR

Missouri

04/2019: He averaged 25 yards per catch in 2017. Not a lot of finesse in his routes. In some games he pretty much runs straight down field until Lock throws it to him, and then he catches it. In other games he will break off the pattern and go short on Outs and Ins. He really is inside the numbers a lot. I have no idea if he can run patterns, never mind NFL patterns. 
He is an NFL talent. He has great size, and can get open down the sideline. He seems to catch everything thrown his way. He plays primarily on Lock’s left. He seem to run patterns mainly straight down field and breaking off. He doesn’t go deep a lot every game. Though it seems like he would be open a lot. He will line up on the right side. He seems to run all short patterns sometimes. Great hands adjusting to the ball deep down the sideline. He catches everything thrown to him, even when it looked like it was tipped a little. 

Combine: First of all Hall is very big and very fast. 4.39 is a nice number for him. He is a good route runner. Great feet on the sideline. Not explosive out of cuts. Doesn't always run patterns to get open. Limited route tree. I liked him this past season. He got open better in pattern last year. But he will get the dropsies sometimes. When he is on he looks great. Good production last season. His hands looked a little last season. He has everything you want in a WR athletically. 
2018 SEASON: Posted back-to-back games of 170+ receiving yards to open the season, becoming the first Tiger to do so since Danario Alexander in 2009 … Had 171 yards on just four catches with a season-high two touchdowns in the season-opener vs. UT Martin (9/1) … Hauled in 10 catches against Wyoming (9/8), again totaling 171 yards while adding a touchdown … Battled through a groin injury to catch four passes for 88 yards at Purdue, including a 26-yard strike in the fourth quarter that set up the game-winning score … The groin injury slowed him against Georgia (9/22) and he did not register a catch … Missed the South Carolina game (10/6) with the groin injury.
2017 SEASON: Big-play wideout who emerged as one of the nation’s elite deep ball threats after taking over a starting spot for the season’s final nine games ... Finished the season with 33 receptions for 817 yards and eight touchdowns, with six of them coming from 50 yards out or longer ... His eight scores went for an average length of 49.5 yards, including scores of 20, 31, 50, 55, 56, 58, 63 and 63 yards, and his per-catch average on the year of 24.8 ranked as the best in the SEC and was second nationally among all receivers ... Battled a hamstring injury early in the season that limited him to just five total receptions in MU’s first four games (including no scores), but when he got healthy, he quickly made an impact, as he had consecutive highly-productive road games at Kentucky (four catches, 129 yards, one touchdown) and at Georgia (four catches, 141 yards, two touchdowns) to give the Mizzou offense a big spark ... Had five games with 100 yards receiving or more, including 113 (five receptions) against Florida, 111 yards and two scores (on just two catches) at Arkansas and 102 yards and two scores (five catches) versus Tennessee ... Injured his hamstring stretching into the end zone on his second touchdown grab at Arkansas in the regular-season finale, and was unable to play in the second half, and despite seeing the field in MU’s bowl game, he was far from 100 percent, and was held without a catch in the game ... Led all SEC players in league games only with his seven touchdowns, while his 82.8 yards per game in receiving yards during league play ranked as second-best ... Hauled in three receptions for 66 yards during Mizzou’s SEC opener against South Carolina (9/9).

*Riley Ridley- 6-2, 200, #8

WR

Georgia

02/2019: Great quicks in cuts and breaks. "There’s 32 teams and there’s a No. 1 [WR] on every team. What’s the difference in each No. 1 and the rest of the receivers on that team? There’s something about that dude that makes him special. There’s something about Odell (he could be a Patriot) that makes him different than the rest of the Giants receivers. Right? Something about A.B. that makes him special. Something about Julio," Chad Johnson said. "Wherever you go, when you get there, there’s got to be something special about Riley Ridley. That makes him special. That separates him from everybody else. Whether it’s the way you work, your hands, the feet, the routes, whether it’s being consistent. It’s got to be something." He was not as productive in 2018 as he needed to be to go in the top two rounds, though 9 TDs was a nice number. 

Great physical skills in pattern. "I feel like I gotta be a leader," Ridley said. "I feel like it’s time for me to make plays. No matter when my number is called, it’s time for me to own up and lead my team." He has the release and speed to win over the top right off the snap.
He looks to give effort blocking, but rarely actually makes a block. "I have awareness," Ridley said. "I understand coverages. I know how to get open. I know how to have separation with the DBs." He exploded on the scene in the Playoffs against Alabama.
But he has less than a 800-yard combined in 2017 and 2018. "I’m going to keep playing it my way, my ball," Ridley said. "The passes that come to me, I try to make the best out of my opportunities, and I feel like that’s the best I can do." He is terrific after the catch and super dynamic with the ball in his hands. 

2018: Started at WR in 12 of 14 games and finished with a team-best 44 catches for 570 yards and nine TDs...team-high five catches for 87 yards at Missouri, including a 33-yard TD strike...caught three passes, including a 10-yard, first-quarter score in season opener vs. Austin Peay...had four catches for 37 yards at South Carolina...three catches for 37 yards in win at Kentucky...team-high five receptions for 57 yards and one TD vs. Vanderbilt...both of his catches vs. Georgia Tech went for TDs...team-high five catches for 59 yards and 1 TD vs. Alabama...one of three Bulldogs to be named Offensive Most Improved Player at team's post-season awards gala
2017: Played in 14 games, making seven starts...finished with 14 catches for 218 yards and two TDs...career-best six catches for 82 yards in CFP Championship Game vs. Alabama...first career start came in the road win at Tennessee...first TD catch this season came vs. Missouri...also had a scoring catch vs. Auburn1...hauled in a 47-yard pass from Jake Fromm to set up Georgia’s first score against Samford...had two catches for 18 yards at Notre Dame.

Germaine Pratt- 6-2, 240, (O) 4.57, 31.5" Arms, 24 Reps, 9'8"Br, 32.5"Vert

OLB

NC ST

03/2019: He sowed some interesting suddenness in coverage drill. He has some snap in his hips. Nice feet in pedal. Great hands to make the diving catch. He really looks the part. He can blanket the RB swinging out of the backfield. He will step outside and cover the Slot guy. He does a nice job, and forces the QB into a tough throw to complete it. 
He has some pass rush push in him. He has a good feel for the run game. He can get beat by the play action. Gets good position in front of the RB, to tackle him, more than fills the hole. He likes to wait and read a lot, and then react to the play. But he can get to the RB at the line, and get to the QB behind the line when he takes off. He is an eye of the hurricane guy. Everyone seems to be flying around him, and he sit and reads the play, and makes the right play in the middle of the chaos. It is a rare trait.  

He is always peeking into the backfield. Nice job shoving off blockers and then going to the ball. He is very difficult to block. Very difficult to block at the point. He is always moving laterally. Nice blitzer. He can get to the QB right up the gut. He sees it. Then goes where his eyes tell him, and his eyes are usually right. Very unusual player. Not a speed burner.

AS A RS-JUNIOR (2017): Fourth-leading tackler even though he did not start a game. Rotated in with two senior starters. First Wolfpack defender to score a pair of touchdowns in a season since David Amerson in 2011. Returned an interception 25 yards for a touchdown in the win over Louisville to seal that Wolfpack victory. Recovered a blocked punt for a score at Notre Dame. Also picked off a pass to seal the win over UNC in the regular season finalé - he returned it 75 yards. Leading tackler in the win at Pitt with nine stops. Awarded a game ball vs. Louisville. Earned the team’s Ken McNeill Iron Wolf Award for making a comeback from an injury. Can play both linebacker spots.

Joe Jackson- 6-5, 275, 34.1"Arms, 22 Reps, 27"Vert, 9'1"Broad, 

EDGE

Miami

12/2017: He is a great athlete who really looks the part. But doesn’t always play the part. They have him in a bit of a conservative defense. He stacks and sheds a lot. I think he would be better in the NFL if he allowed to just go upfield more. He needs to affect the game more.

He has good size, and he is great at using his hands to shed the OLT, but he slows just a little too much when he does. He does find the ball though. He tends to be the second or third guy there. My question is can he find the ball without that hesitation he has at first. Can he be a burst up field guy that can find the ball as well. 

2018 (Junior): Started season opener against LSU (Sept. 2) and finished with three tackles and one PBU...Had one tackle and 0.5 TFLs in start vs. Savannah State (Sept. 8)...Started and finished with 1.5 TFLs and three total tackles in win at Toledo (Sept. 15)...Posted 2.0 tackles for loss (six yards), 1.5 sacks and four total tackles in start vs. FIU (Sept. 22)...Recorded five tackles (three tackles) and 6-yard sack in start vs. North Carolina (Sept. 27)...Tied career high with 2.0 sacks and finished with 2.5 TFLs and four total tackles in start vs. Florida State (Oct. 6)...Started and had seven total tackles and 1.5 TFLs at Virginia (Oct. 13)...Made eighth straight start of season at Boston College (Oct. 26), finishing with three tackles and 0.5 TFLs.

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.

Clemson 

07/2018: He will get followed by Zone runs sometimes. Goes to the RB on play action sometimes. He is s a run stuffer first. Good not great blitzer. There is a reason he is not an edge guy at his size. HE reminds me a ton of Tremaine Edwards. Amazing open field tackle. He hurt his ankle against BC, and limped around the rest of the game, but didn’t come out. Tough kid. His movement skills were clearly effected by the sprained ankle, but he still got to where he had to be. 

Good eyes in zone, but wants to move forward too much. Good zone drop on 3rd and long to protect the marker. Great understanding of position, and always seems to keep the ball in front of him. Great eyes, and always seems to read it right. Very smart ILB. He is one of those guys who always seems to play in the eye of the hurricane after the snap.

Overview: Second-team AFCA All-American who declared for the NFL Draft after completing his Clemson career with 159 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, 8.0 sacks, 11 quarterback pressures, three pass breakups, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and an interception he returned for 43 yards in 998 snaps over 39 games (22 starts).

OLB

NC ST

03/2019: He can really slide sideways. He looked bigger than I thought. Great feet moving side to side. Nice COD forward to back. Nice quicks on bend. Nice speed around the corner. He has to do a better job staying low. He has some snap in his hips. Nice Pedal. Smoothest hands in coverage. He really moved well backwards in coverage drills. 
Jelks is a guy the Pats could be looking at in Day Three. He really was more of an OLB in Oregon's defensive system. So that 4.9 number is a Day Three number for him. He did not look like an OLB at the Combine. He is a versatile guy who can rush Standing up and with a hand down. He also had great longs arms, 34.5" arms was a good number for him. 
A 7.22 3-Cone might be a Day Three number for the Pats. He is a very tough kid who rushed inside a little the last couple years. His stats last season were not good. 3.5 Sacks for an Edge guy is a Day-3 number. He had 6.5 Sacks as a Jr. He was expected to garner more sacks in 2018. He didn't. He disappointed last season.

Isaiah Buggs- 6-5, 286, #49,

DL

Alabama 

02/2019: He was playing a little out of position at DE. He looks more like a DT. I'd like to see him at 3-Tech. He is finding the QB better than ever before. Great spin move inside. If Williams wasn’t looking so unblockable, he would be the story of the season. 

He got the invite to the Senior Bowl. "These are some of the best players from all across the country in the Senior Bowl," Buggs said. "Everybody knows what's expected, so everybody is giving it their all." He played well down there, and looked like he slipped into Day Two. 

He played mostly outside at D-end. "I played all over, even at Bama I played inside, outside," Buggs said. "It doesn’t matter. You can put me anywhere on the field, and I’ll get it done." I think he is more of an inside guy, and I'd like to see him at 3-Tech. 

He was the best player on the Alabama defense in the first half of the season. "The thing that people underestimate is Isaiah Buggs practices every day against Jonah Williams," Saban said. "You talk to our players who are in the league now; they talk about how they were challenged every day in practice and how that helped them improve and become a more consistent player. I think whoever gets Buggs is going to get that kind of player." He relentlessly pursued the QB. 

He is also a high character guy. "I've grown a lot playing under Nick Saban and that program," Buggs said. "They truly taught me to be the best person I could be on and off the field." He could be a Patriot in the 3rd. 

He is an excellent stack and shed DT. Reads screen as quick as an edge guy, and gets to the RB first. He was leading Alabama in Sacks with eight and half going into the LSU game, and got injured. That is when Williams took over. He was the star DL in the first half of the season. He is having a great year. 

Senior (2018): A disruptive force off the edge who returned a wealth of experience after a standout junior campaign ... earned second team All-America honors from the AFCA ... named to the All-SEC second team by both the Associated Press and the conference coaches ... sack leader of the Tide defense that finished tied for 10th nationally in sacks per game (3.00) with 45 total ... ranked fourth in the SEC in sacks with 9.5 (-49 yards) and sacks per game at 0.63 ... finished eighth in the league in tackles for loss at 13.5 (-59 yards) ... totaled 51 tackles, including his team-leading sack total ... added six quarterback pressures, three pass breakups, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery as a senior ... selected as the SEC Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts against Texas A&M ... named defensive player of the week by the UA coaches for his play against Arkansas State, Texas A&M, LSU and Mississippi State.

Louisville: Finished with two stops up front, including one sack (-3 yards) against the Cardinals. Arkansas State: Recorded five tackles, including his second sack of the season (-1 yard), while adding a quarterback pressure in the home opener ... earned defensive player of the week recognition for his efforts against the Red Wolves. Ole Miss: Contributed across the board, totaling two tackles to go with a quarterback hurry and one pass breakup ... helped limit the SEC’s top scoring offense to only seven points. Texas A&M: Had another huge game against the Aggies for a second consecutive year, earning SEC Defensive Player of the Week honors and defensive player of the week recognition from the Tide coaches ... set career-high marks with 3.5 sacks (-14 yards) and four tackles for loss (-14 yards) as part of his seven tackles ... added two quarterback pressures, matching his career-best mark ... his sack total ranked No. 4 all-time for a single game in UA annals while the tackles for loss number tied for seventh-most in program history ... contributed to the Tide’s season-high seven sacks on the day. 

Louisiana: Recorded two tackles against the Ragin’ Cajuns. Arkansas: Spotted the stat sheet in Fayetteville ... totaled three tackles, including half a sack (-2 yards) while adding a pass breakup along the line ... also forced his first fumble of the season, recording his own strip to give the Tide possession. Missouri: Dominant up front once again, collecting three tackles with 1.5 sacks (-22 yards) ... also forced a fumble and pressured the Tiger quarterback once ... helped limit the high-powered Mizzou offense to only 212 yards and 10 points, well below their season average entering the night. Tennessee: Registered three tackles, including 1.5 for loss (-6 yards) and a sack (-6 yards) ... also tallied a quarterback hurry against the Vols.

Demarcus Christmas- 6-4, 305

DT

FLA ST

04/2019: He lines up on the Nose a lot. Power inside shoulder punch. He is getting some love from scouts. He played a lot against S, Carolina. Nice job hand fighting his way outside, when the OLT gets the seal on him. They rotate him in and out as well. I have never seen a team play so many DLs in every game. Powerful base. Lower center. Strong. 
Nice run defender. He can stuff the run if you run a Dive right at him. He is a good passrusher, but he leaves me wanting more. When he burst up the middle he panics QBs out of the pocket. Great initial burst to beat the OC off the snap, and he can flash by him quick when he wins with his hands. Teams will double him in pass pro as well. Great job playing at arms length and keeping his feet moving and shrinking the pocket. Nice blast off. Consistently powers into the backfield. 

He was great against the run at SB. He was bursting into the backfield to grab the RB all week. Great explosion off the snap to get the OL moving backwards. Great hands. Great push pull at the point. 

2018: Started all 11 games in which he appeared…recorded 28 tackles, including 3.0 for loss, two pass breakups and one quarterback hurry…third-team All-ACC…named team’s Most Valuable Defensive Lineman…registered career-high seven tackles and added one quarterback hurry vs. No. 2 Clemson…recorded career-high 1.5 tackles for loss as part of five-tackle game at No. 17 Miami…opened season with two tackles vs. No. 20 Virginia Tech…had three stops at Syracuse…made 0.5 tackle for loss in 28-24 victory at Louisville…recorded one tackle and one pass breakup in 38-17 win vs. Wake Forest…made one tackle at North Carolina State…registered two solo tackles and one pass breakup at No. 3 Notre Dame…made four tackles in 22-21 victory vs. No. 22 Boston College…ended season with two tackles, 1.0 for loss, vs. No. 13 Florida.
2017: Started all 13 games at the defensive tackle position, recording 36 tackles, 4.5 for loss and 1.0 sack…had four pass breakups to tie for the lead on the defensive line…turned in four tackles and a sack against NC State…totaled a season-high five tackles at Wake Forest…made a tackle for loss in four straight games against NC State, at Wake Forest, vs. No. 13 Miami and at Duke…blocked a field goal against Delaware State that led to a scoop-and-score from Tarvarus McFadden.
2016: Started all 13 games at defensive tackle, finishing with 21 tackles and 2.5 TFLs…also had five pass breakups, most on the defensive line, and a fumble recovery…one of five Seminole defenders to start every game…led a stout run defense that allowed only 128.0 rush yards per game (No. 21 in the nation)…vital part of nation’s 22nd-ranked defense (349.1 yards allowed)…had five tackles and a half-sack versus No. 23 North Carolina and made two stops at No. 10 Miami…totaled three tackles and a half-sack against Wake Forest…had four stops, one sack and one pass breakup versus No. 3 Clemson…had a pair of stops against Boston College…made a stop and had a pass breakup against No. 13 Florida…tallied a pass breakup and a half-tackle for loss in the Orange Bowl victory over Michigan.

Lukas Denis- 5-11, 185, #21

FS

BC

07/2018: Denis is CB sized, and has to add weight. He has top character that cannot be questioned. He flies up fast once he reads run. He is not shy in the run game. Not afraid of running into traffic and pileups in run game. He has that knack for the turnover. He will dive at the WR who catches the ball in front of him. He can punch the ball out, while diving, when he sees it in his hand. 

Do you know who led the NCAA in INTs. That's wrong. It was Denis. He has terrific hands catching tipped balls. He plays the slot corner in 3-wide sets. He can get beat on the double move. Might not be a Corner. Covers the inside post from the slot better. He can play the deep Cover One Safety on 3rd and long, and get all the way across the field, and forward, and make a play on the WR.  
Great ball skills and anticipation at FS. He has better ball skills than a lot of the WR's he played against. He played a lot of Cover One and Cover Two. He was a true Free Safety at BC. He plays a lot of Cover One. His ability to get sideline to sideline helps BC be very aggressive up front. He gets left alone out in no man's land a lot. Very underrated player. He has great hands stepping in front of receivers to snag the ball. 

Nice feet moving backward. He is small, but can still charge into the backfield and find the RB for the TFL. He will fall for the playaction when he lines up inside like Chung playing LB. Excellent job reading the QB's eyes, and getting to either side to follow them. Very good tackler in traffic.

He has some nice twitch to stay in the way of the WR over the top. He is a good tackler, who can bring down the bigger guys. Nice job jumping in front of the big WR, and smacking the ball down. He is a physical tackler on the edge. He stepped in front of so many WR's last season to steal the ball that it was amazing. Size should keep him out of 1st, but if he shows he can cover better in the slot, he could slip into the First. 
2017 (JUNIOR): Walter Camp Football Foundation Second Team All-American … All-ACC second team selection … tied for second nationally with seven interceptions … led BC and ranked 17th nationally with 10 pass breakups … tied for third on the team with 83 tackles … made the move from cornerback to free safety after the 2016 season … first career start in the win at Northern Illinois (9/1/17), finishing with four tackles and second career interception … six tackles and a forced fumble against Wake Forest (9/9/17) … totaled a then-career-high seven tackles and an interception against Notre Dame (9/16/17) … best performance of his career at No. 2 Clemson (9/23/17), totaling a career-high 13 tackles (also a game-high) along with his third interception of the season and a forced fumble … career-high two interceptions in the victory over Central Michigan (9/30/17) … also contributed six tackles and a pass breakup in the win over the Chips … 10-tackle performance against No. 16 Virginia Tech (10/7/17) … six tackles and two pass breakups in BC’s 45-42 victory at Louisville (10/14/17) … led BC with seven tackles and one pass breakup in the 41-10 win at Virginia (10/21/17) … seven tackles in BC’s 35-3 win over Florida State (10/27/17) … five tackles vs. No. 23 NC State (11/11/17) … sixth interception of the season and two pass breakups in the win over UConn (11/18/17) … seventh interception of the year and six tackles in the 42-14 victory at Syracuse (11/25/17).

He was the best sideline to sideline Cover One Safety in College last year. Watch this. He slides over to the seam (on the opposite side of the throw). When the slot guy goes in motion (:01). He played a lot of Cover One, but he also lined up in the Slot as the third Corner (:25). He is usually a sure tackler. He played the option perfect, but slipped off the tackle (:38). He is not always great as the 3rd Corner (:45). However, he has good coverage here against the big WR. The QB made a good throw, but Denis stopped right after he caught it.

Cover Two. He played over the inside WR. Then burst back when he saw the outside WR go deep (1:20). He finally shed the bigger blocker and made the tackle (2:08). He is usually a great sure tackler.

He has the smarts, understands the defense better than anyone else, and is rarely out of position (1:31). He protected the outside so Winbush couldn't get the sideline. Then stepped inside to help with the tackle (2:08). He got a good jam on the Slot guy (2:30). Then he burst back into the zone to cover the WR crossing. 

This is such a great look at him playing the Cover Three Zone (3:10). Then it is only a matter of time. The way he plays his position it is only a matter of time before he picks one off (3:27). That is how you play Cover One Safety, with one eye on the QB (3:39). He has elite awareness in coverage, and the hands of a WR (though he does tend to body catch interceptions;). 

Okay, I wasn't going to do this. But watch this coverage. HE IS IN THE OPPOSITE SLOT. He gets all the way through traffic to stop the TD. That is great coverage (5:04). He is in coverage on the slot guy on the opposite side. Watch the speed he has to make the play (5:25). Back in the slot, he stepped up. Then he read it, and made the tackle in the hole (5:43). That is pretty could press coverage for a FS, even if it was a run (6:01). Okay, I'm not gonna do the whole game. I just wanted to do some quick Tapes so you could get a feel for their game.

LB

Stanford 

11/2017: He is a good athlete. I like this kid. I like him outside. An Official 4.58 was a great number for him. He can cover tight ends. He was great in bag drills. He can really move. Great quicks and feet moving side to side. Smooth moving backwards. He looked like he could play as a rookie. Great job finding the RB on Dives. He has that knack for finding the RB. When he has his DLs infront of him blocking, he can find the RB in traffic. He is a flash forward to the RB in Nickel sets with two ILB. I think that is when he is at his best. He played the Mike but got stuck in traffic sometimes. 

He can find the RB, in two ILB sets, in the backfield on short yardage. Just ask Notre Dame. He stopped them on 3rd and 1, and 4th and 1 to end their first drive. He will get stuck in traffic on short yardage when they run play action. Very aggressive against the run. He can take the FB on in the hole, and knock him back on his butt. He is stronger than he looks. He used his long arms well protecting his body from blockers. More smart than instinctive. Voted Team Captain. 

Great speed in coverage. He can run with the TE down field, and knock the ball out when it arrives. Very aware player who can see the strip, and go and get the fumble. Very aggressive to the RB catching the ball out of the backfield. Great speed in coverage. He can run with the TE downfield, and knock the ball out when it arrives. He garnered 96, tackles, 7.5 TFLs, 4,5 sacks, 5 PBU, 2 FF, 1 FR, and a Safety.

As a Fifth-Year (2018): Team captain. All-Pac-12 honorable mention. Lott IMPACT Trophy quarterfinalist. Played in all 13 games and started all 13. Led team with 96 tackles (52 solo).

David Edwards- 6-5, 340, #65 

ORT

Wisconsin

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. 

2018 Preseason: Second-team All-America (Sporting News), Outland Trophy watch list.
2017: First-team All-America (AFCA), second-team All-America (FWAA, Walter Camp),
third-team All-America (AP), second-team All-Big Ten (consensus), Academic All-Big Ten
.
Notable: Former high school quarterback began career at UW as a tight end before moving to offensive line prior to start of training camp in 2016.

Brice Love-  6', 202, #5, 

RB

Stanford

07/2018: Bryce Love: Fighting For Respect.

10/2017: He is the third best player I've seen this season (maybe the first;). "What separates Bryce for me is the yards after contact," Stanford HC David Shaw said. "Whereas you’ve got bigger backs around the nation that are physical guys that bounce off and make big plays, nobody’s doing what Bryce has done this year, which is lead the nation in yards after contact. A lot of his big runs. Some of them are well-blocked and everybody’s blocked, and a lot of them aren't. He’s running through an arm tackle. He’s making a guy miss. He’s coming up on a safety, and making a guy miss , and accelerating and going full-speed, like he did against Arizona State, like he did against Utah." Elite speed, with much more power in his legs than you'd think from a high school sprinter.  

McCaffrey was a runningback that ran like a sprinter, while Love is a sprinter who runs like a runningback. "The big thing with it . and Christian had the same thing . just always believe, have that belief," Love said. "I'm not big with numbers and stuff like that but why not come in and have however many yards? The big thing with me and him is just we always wanted to win." Love is better than Christian, who was the 8th pick in the Draft.

He is not just fast, he is faster than McCaffrey, he is faster than everybody. "We all knew he had blazing speed, even his freshman year," WR Arcega-Whiteside said. "We all saw the potential in him. Having guys like Christian in front of him for Bryce to take notes on is a pretty good role model." He is also tough to bring down, because he is built so low and wide, like Barry Sanders (that's right I said Barry Sanders).

"Those are plays that nobody else in America is making. Not just, 'Oh, he got hit and he dragged the guy for five yards.' He’s done that, too, but a lot of his big runs have come when he should be, quote-unquote, tackled," Shaw said. "And not only does he make more yards, he actually scores touchdowns. And those are the plays that change games. Those are the plays that make him, to me, special. And make him unique in college football right now.” 

He does a good job getting into position to pick up the blitzer. Great quick adjustments on the second level to make LBs miss. He has a great quick twitch to the outside that freezes LB and DBs on the 2nd and 3rd levels. He can get low and cut the LB blitzing up the middle. Elite speed that makes guys miss outside, just because they cannot close the angle. 

He broke McCaffrey's single game rushing record against UCLA. "He's got so much speed and so much explosion, we all know this was going to happen," coach Shaw said. "How many yards and what people say, you never know. But we knew he was a running back and we knew he was going to get the tough yards. All he needed was carries." After five games he was still averaging an impossible 11.1 YPC.

Mitch Hyatt-, 6-5, 305, #75

OL

Clemson

08/2018: He rebinds me of Matt Light. Which has been a flaw in thinking of many Pats fans. Light was a freak at OLT. Guys his size and athleticism are not natural OLTs. Comparing him to Light is really a negative. He has a chance to be an OLT, but a Day Two chance. Coming back for his senior season could move him up from Day Two Day One. 

He made a good decision staying in school. "The thing I like about these guys, they wanted to know why they weren’t rated as a top-10 pick," Swinney said about Hyatt, Bryant, and Ferrell. "And I got them the information, and they’re like, 'All right.' They didn’t get mad, they were like, 'I’m fixing to go work on that and get better.'" Bryant and Ferrell also need to turn their elite athleticism into stats. 
He is effect moving to either side to block in the run game. Terrific sealing the DE outside with leverage and his arms. Doesn't have the longest arms, which will hurt him more in the NFL. Very similar size as Light. Plays with good intensity, but not the manic intensity of Light that let him play OLT for 11 seasons. 

All three Juniors made good decision staying in school. "It really wasn’t hard for me; I just didn’t feel like I was ready," Hyatt said about staying in school. "I didn’t think I was physically prepared and just wanted to make the most of my college experience. and really just develop physically and mentally. It really wasn’t that hard of a decision for me to come back and finish up my education and get better." He will go higher in the 2019 Draft than he would have in the 2018 draft.
Moves into the DE low, and likes to try and shove and push him up. When it works the DE is done. Nice job sliding outside to pick up the blitzing OLB. He will square up in pass pro sometimes, and can get beat outside. He doesn't always kickslide moving backwards. Blocks down with some great power sometimes. 

07/2018: Vs Alabama: Great job turning and sealing the DE outside on runs away. His feet look more consistent this year. When he looses the hand fight, he looses the edge. Very nice power going low on short yardage. He might be an OLG in the NFL. Tough to not see Light when you watch him. Needs to improve footwork in kickslide. When eh seals the big D-end outside, it is tough for the DE to get back into the play. 

"Just take the coaching," Hyatt said. "When you come out here, they’re throwing a lot at you. You’re new to a lot of it and you really just have to take it all in and absorb it and try not to get frustrated whenever they’re coaching you. It can be hard, but you’ve just got to keep going with it."

He will slide inside too much sometimes and give the rush to the DE. He played very well in the Champ Game. Hand was able to rag doll him a few times, but he still held onto his shirt. He does get off balance against great speed sometimes, but can hang on for dear life just long enough to save his QB. Nice job absorbing the impact of the big D-End and still holding on.

07/2018: Vs FLA ST: Nice balance. If you can't get him off balance you can't beat him. He is so good at sitting low in his kickslide, with arms extended, and keeping his quick feet moving. Great job sealing the DE outside on inside runs. Great job absorbing the big punch, and not losing any position. Plays on the edge of out of control a lot, like Light. When he looses control of his feet he looses his balance. 

07/2018: Vs Louisville: He has a nice quick twitch back right off the snap to protect the edge. Nice awareness. He can slide inside to grab the DE; Then reach and punch the LB twisting behind the DE to the outside and stop him (amazing;). He can play with some nasty, and cut a DE to the ground. Nice job with leverage and position. Nice quick hands in double jab into DE chest. Nice and smooth pulling forward to 2nd level to hit an LB. Nice job consistently turning the OLB outside. He can take a misstep, and still shove the speedy OLB past the QB. 

07/2018: Vs NC ST: He knows when to turn and bail, and shove the elite D-end past the QB. Nice kickslide verse speed. He has good technique sliding out and up field. He is terrific pulling to the left and taking out the D-end on the opposite side of the line. Smart and aware. He can jam the DE inside with one hand, and still slide outside and pick up the blitzing DB. Terrific job hopping inside, and sealing the DE outside on inside runs. He has some nice quick feet. Knows how to use his hands. Great technician.

EDGE

Wyoming

03/2019: Exciting small school edge guy who has to prove he belongs. Need to see some stats for him, and not just the rush, to prove he is more than a good story. Doesn’t seem to have that knack for hitting the quarterback. I like the way he uses his hands. He will stand up sometimes and play OLB. He can fight off two OLs with his hands as he moves laterally to get in front of the RB, and take him out. 
Nice burst upfield. Knows how to use his hands. Nice inside hand shove to a rip. He really looks the part. He looked bigger in 2018. He can rip inside and destroy the RB on runs to his side. Nice job using his hands to move laterally inside. Liker to burst inside. He will burst inside sometimes dipping under the ORT without using his hands. Then slash upfield on the next play. 

UW This Season: One of the nation’s top defensive ends heading into his senior season. He was named as one of the Top-100 Draft selections for the 2019 NFL Draft.

2017: Granderson was a First Team All-Mountain West selection and was named to the Ted Hendricks Award Final Watchlist. He finished the season with 77 total tackles. He also recorded 16 tackles for loss and a team-high 9.5 sacks. Granderson also forced two fumbles and had one fumble recovery for a 58 yard touchdown against Central Michigan in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. He also intercepted two passes returning them for 43 yards, which included a 37 yard return against New Mexico. Granderson recorded three sacks against Boise State, a career-high. He finished that game with 3.5 tackles for loss, as it was also a career best. He recorded three tackles for loss with a sack against Oregon. He recorded a career-high 12 tackles against Boise State. He recorded nine tackles in the season opener at Iowa, where he also added a sack and a forced fumble.

TE

Washington

04/2019: He really showed up at the SB. He was a terrific receiver all week. He showed every kind of block you need to see at Washington. But he wasn’t used much in the passing game. But he was a better receiver than Sweeney all week, and in the game. Very impressive for a great blocking TE. His catch in the 3rd quarter of SB was great. 

He was heading down the seam looking inside, and the QB threw it outside, He was able to spin around, lay out and snag it. He looked better and better as the game went on. He had two quick catches in the slot in the 3rd. He was a better receiver all week at the SB than he ever was at Washington. He can catch the ball over the middle with a DB roughing him up and get some more yards with his feet. 

I thought Tommy Sweeney was the better receiving TE during the season, and Sample was the better blocking TE. However, at the Senior Bowl Sample was a much better receiving in practice and in the game. He also continued to be excellent in the run game. He was great at the Senior Bowl. He looked faster than Sweeney at the Senior Bowl. He was better in pattern and caught everything. I thought it was the opposite during the season. Excellent blocker. He is very tough, and has no trouble doing the dirty work inside. 

I like when guys improve their Forty on second run. It shows they are in great shape. Very nice hands on the sideline. Nice hands in Gauntlet, he didn’t have a drop in 1st. But had one drop in 2nd. Smooth and easy hands catcher. He looked like a better receiver this off season than I saw at Washington. I like the comparison to Jack Doyle. Though was a much better receiving in college, and Sample a better blocker.

Jaquan Johnson- 5-10, 190, #4

FS

Miami

12/2017: Phenomenal talent. But he is undersized. He will not be a SS in the NFL. He seems to have the range to play FS. He can really move on the field. So much of his Draft status will be speed, and how he can cover Slots or TEs. A lot of guys like him more than I do. But he ain’t a 1st. He should be a solid Day Two guy. 

They do line him up as a Cover One FS. They will also line him up in the Slot to cover the big TE. He can give them a big bum, but will also get beat off the bump by a TE like Sweeney. He does have some good recovery speed on bump and runs in the slot. He will also line up behind the LB, like a Sam or Will. They play him a lot like the way the Pats play Chung. They move him all over the D. He seems to line up in a different spot every play. Nice blitzer up the middle. Give signals in secondary. 
2018 (Senior): Started season opener against LSU (Sept. 2) and finished with game-high 11 total tackles (three solo)...Started and had four total tackles in win over Savannah State (Sept. 8)...Added first blocked field goal of career vs. Tigers to help Miami preserve shutout in second half...Posted seven tackles (four solo) in start at Toledo (Sept. 15)...Missed games vs. FIU (Sept. 22) and North Carolina (Sept. 27) due to injury...Returned to field in win against Florida State (Oct. 6), starting and totaling team-high 10 tackles...Tied for team lead and career high with 12 total tackles (four solo) in start at Virginia (Oct. 13).
2017 (Junior): Started all 13 games and was among Miami's top defensive performers...Led team with 96 total tackles (54 solo) and added 3.0 tackles for loss and one sack...Tied for team lead with four interceptions and totaled 57 interception return yards...Added four pass breakups, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries...Earned ACC Defensive Back of the Week three times...Walter Camp Player of the Year semifinalist.

TE/FB

West Virginia

04/2019Nice job catching the ball away from his body on the sideline and getting his feet down. He can snag the deep ball. Nice job rolling hips to strike in blocking. Nice hands in 1st Gauntlet, he didn’t have a drop. He strikes me as a guy the Pats Pick up late on Day Three that no one really notices.

Another BB guy. He lined up in the backfield as a FB in the Senior Bowl at 274 pounds. Then he stepped out and play H-back. Freakish versatility along the line. Runs a lot of patterns down the line, and then can turn upfield on the outside, and catch the pass outside on the second level. He is such an athletic freak. Blocks more like a TE than at FB, with his hands. He can get open in pattern. 

Then he ends up backing up Gronk (sad) and Develin, and develops into a valuable piece down the road. Smooth easy hands. Nice hands in Gauntlet, he didn’t have a drop 2nd gantlet. Great job catching the ball behind him. He looked so much better as a TE than a FB at Combine. Easy catcher over the middle. Great job catching the ball over his head on the Wheel. 

He has great soft hands and catches everything thrown to him. He is a JuCo kid. All Pac-12 tight end last season. He is a guy I really like. I think he could sneak into play earlier on Day Three than expected. BB interviewed him so he most likely made their Board. 

02/2019: SB: He did not look like a FB, but he played it well at the SB. When he went out in pattern he caught it like a TE, and he went out as a FB a few times, and is a smooth hands catcher moving down the line. Great hands on short throws. It can take three or four guys to tackle him sometimes. 

-Wesco is a 274 pound FB, who can also play TE. He looks like a TE, but he will line up in the backfield and block like a FB. He is certainly a player the Pats will be taking a big look at. If he is on the clock at picks 97 or 101, he should be a Patriot. A lot will depend on his speed at the Combine. I was very impressed with him at the Senior Bowl. They listed him as a FB at the Senior Bowl, but as a Tight End at WVU. 
Terrific in pass pro. He can line up and block like an ORT in pass pro. He can spin in the air and catch the ball thrown behind him. Terrific hands and agility. He has some speed in the open field. He stayed in and blocked a lot. He played better at the SB than at WVU. He really took to the Pro coaching.  
They like to swing the ball out to him as he runs outside down the line. He does a good job turning and running with the ball in his hands. Lines up at H-back a lot. He can get some push in run game. He will line up off set like a FB in the backfield, but he looks like a TE. Very interesting Day Two or Three Prospect, who has a shot to play for long time. 

2018 (r-Sr.): All-Big 12 First Team (TE). Fifth-leading receiver for the season with 26 catches for 366 yards, averaging 14.1 yards per catch, and one touchdown. Finished with two catches for 14 yards with a long of 12 yards against Syracuse in the Camping World Bowl. Recorded four catches for 49 yards against Oklahoma his fifth consecutive multiple-reception outing. Caught a career long 43-yard pass at Oklahoma State; finished with two catches for 51 yards on the day. WVU Offensive Champion: TCU. Career day vs. TCU included five catches, 86 yards and a 32-yard touchdown - his first of the year. Recorded three catches at Texas, totaling 27 yards. WVU Offensive Champion: Baylor. Tallied three catches for 52 yards vs. Baylor. Finished with two catches for 15 yards against Kansas. Hauled in a pair of passes for 33 yards at Texas Tech; his long went for 28 yards. Earned his first career start against Tennessee and recorded a then-career long 29-yard reception; finished the day with two catches for 35 yards.

Dax Raymond- 6-5 255,  (O) 4.73, 32"Vert, 9'1"Br, 7.15 3-C, 4.39 SS, 

H-Back

Utah State

04/2019: H-Back who can get down the seam and catch the deep ball high over his head. Great size, and is a good blocker as well. Nice job in release off the line. He can get past the LBs fast, going down the seam. Natural hands, and the QB throws it to him high a lot, and that is when he is at his best. No trouble running past the Safety against BYU for the 32-yard TD. Runs routes with nice deception. He has great natural hands. He catches everything thrown to him.

Good athlete, but not the best speed. When he gets open down the seam he catches it. He can get open in pattern. Nice job running after the catch. When he catches it in the Redzone he finds a way to score. I thought he’d be faster, but 4.7 is not a bad number for a TE. Quicker in games. 

Very nice hands on the sideline. Nice job rolling hips to strike in blocking. Gets good leverage in blocking. Nice hands in Gauntlet. He didn’t have a drop in 1st. Terrific hands. He didn’t have a drop in 2nd. Doesn’t always make a great play on the ball. He doesn't have to slow to snag the fast ball, which allows him to run after the catch. He needs to get more physical blocking. 
UTAH STATE: A dynamic and athletic tight end who runs great routes and has great hands... Is a tenacious blocker who plays with an edge... Possesses good size, speed and athletic ability and is a one-on-one mismatch for most defenders.

2018 (JR): Earned third-team all-Mountain West honors from Phil Steele’s Magazine and honorable mention all-MW honors from the league’s coaches after starting 10 games and playing in 11 at tight end, catching 27 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns... Ranked third among all Mountain West tight ends in receptions and fourth in receiving yards despite missing almost four games due to injury... Of his 27 receptions, 19 resulted in a first down, with nine of those receptions being on third down... Finished the season catching at least one pass in 10 of the 11 games he played in, including multiple receptions in seven contests... Had a career-best 76 receiving yards on a career-high seven receptions in the season opener at No. 11 Michigan State (8/31)... Had four receptions for 68 yards, including a 30-yard touchdown catch against Air Force (9/22)... Added four receptions for 60 yards against San José State (11/10) and three catches for 57 yards against Tennessee Tech (9/13)... Added a 19-yard touchdown reception against New Mexico (10/27)... Had four receptions of at least 20 yards during the year.

Gerald Willis- 6-2 302, 33" Arms, 8 1/2" Hands, 

DT 

Miami 

10/2018: The Pats appear to like this guy. Which bring me back to my justification for taking offensive guys early. They can pick up two or three DLs late, who will have an impact for a long time. They have to pick up a DT or two, and an Edge guy or two. Plus, a damn Safety. 

He doesn't always have the best eyes. He seems to consistently get to where he wants to get, but it usually isn't at the ball. Great quick hands. He use technique to win. Terrible eyes. He burst into the backfield like he's a blind bull sometimes. I am way to harsh on him when I watch Miami.
I wish he would look up. Appears to stare at the OL he is fighting with no concept of what is going on in the backfield. No instincts in rush. He does agrner a lot of attention from O-lines. He opens up things for his teamamtes as the have to double him and scheme agaisnt him. He is a better player than his stats indicate. There are not a lot of guys other teams so openly scheme againt. But he just frustrates me, and leaves me wanting more. 
2018 (Redshirt Senior): Delivered dominant final season, starting all 12 games in regular season and earning second-team All-ACC honors...Led ACC with 18 tackles for loss, more than any defensive tackle in FBS...Finished with career-high 59 total tackles, 4.0 sacks, one fumble recovery and two PBUs...18 TFLs were most by Hurricane since DE Calais Campbell in 2006 (20.5)...Started and delivered dominant outing in season opener against LSU (Sept. 2), finishing with career-high eight tackles (four solo) and a career-best four (4.0) tackles for loss...Performance of four TFLs was first by Hurricane since Marcus Robinson in 2008...Added one sack and one quarterback hurry vs. Tigers...Earned ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week for dominant opener, which marked his first game action since November 26, 2016.

Started and had one tackle in win over Savannah State (Sept. 8)...Dominated in start at Toledo (Sept. 15), finishing with five solo tackles, three tackles for loss (10 yards ) and one sack (five yards)...Recorded five tackles (two solo) and 3.0 tackles for loss in start vs. FIU (Sept. 22)...Started and finished with four total tackles and 0.5 TFLs in win over North Carolina (Sept. 27)...Named first-ever recipient of Outland Trophy Defensive Player of the Month on Oct. 7...Started and totaled five tackles (four solo), 2.0 tackles for loss and first fumble recovery of career in come-from-behind win over Florida State (Oct. 6)...Midseason addition to watch list for Chuck Bednarik Award, honoring nation's top defensive player...Selected as Midseason All-America by ESPN...Tied career high with eight tackles and added 0.5 TFLs in start at Virginia (Oct. 13)...Started and finished with three tackles and 1.0 TFL at Boston College (Oct. 26)...Had fifth performance of at least 2.0 TFLs in start vs. Duke (Nov. 3), finishing with six total tackles, 2.0 TFLs (10 yards) and one 8-yard sack...Posted five total tackles (four solo) and 1.0 TFL in start at Georgia Tech (Nov. 10)...Credited with five total tackles in start at Virginia Tech (Nov. 17)...Had four tackles and one 11-yard sack in final home start vs. Pittsburgh (Nov. 24)...Did not compete in New Era Pinstripe Bowl vs. Wisconsin (Dec. 27) to begin rehab on hand injury suffered during season

He is a big DT in the Malcolm Brown mold, but I think he is a better athlete (:01). He can get some moment in his blast off angling inside (:12). Watch his great quick hands, as he uses them to ole' over the OLG. Then he can't find the ball. It looked like OLG didn't block him on purpose (:19). You see that a lot where he explodes into the backfield, but can't find the ball.

Watch the hands and feet attack in perfect balance like a tweaked-up ballerina, but he does get near the ball (:25). He hoped back to stunt and leaped away from the play (:37). I wish some one could explain it to me.  He has so much athleticism and promise, but just no football instincts. 

You'd think 3-Tech would be his natural position, but he got blown off the line again (:46). Nice job moving the OC back towards the QB (:55). Watch the hip torque and power to throw the OC aside and force the double (1:02). He stayed low, and swam under the OC for the Sack (1:12). Then he exploded into the backfield again and got his second TFL (1:21). Watch his use his hands to swipe the OC's hands off, and go and destroy the QB  (1:29). He doesn't just hit QB's, he hurts them. 

Watch the movement skills through blockers, elite lateral quicks, and his consistent burst into the backfield, and ask yourself how did he only have four sacks last season?

Clayton Thorson- 6-4, 222,  31 1/8" Arms, 9 3/4" Hands,

QB

Northwestern

04/2019: Thorson is a little mechanical. He can move to his left on 3rd down, and complete the pass with rushers in his face. He is a strong runner. He will get some push when he sneaks. He can make the big clutch throw on 4th down with a rusher in his face for the First. He made his ninth 3rd down conversion in the Notre Dame game. He has the size to power into the Endzone on the goal line.
Does seem to change targets a lot. He seems to work to one side of the field only. He will sometimes work down from the deep receiver to the crosser. Tough to say, but I rarely see his head transition across the field to multiple receives. I really like how he throws on the move. He has a good feel when to move to his right or left to avoid the rush. He did go to a 4th WR against ND in the 3rd, but his looks were still all on the same side. He hit the crosser underneath. He is a four year starter who has a ton of starts in his belt. 
Nice feel for when to bounce the ball to his well covered receiver. Great instincts when to flee the pocket, and has that knack for avoiding rushers in the pocket. Great jump putting the ball right in the bread box of the WR going down the seam. He can really throw some beautiful passes. He has learned to manipulate the Safety with his eyes. He can look left, and then come back and throw to the WR going down the seam. He is usually playing against more talented teams. He didn't have a lot of guys to throw too. One man Band last season.

Jonathan Ledbetter- 6-4, 280, 34 1/2"Arms, 22 Reps, (O) 22 Reps, 26.5"Vert, 9'Br,

DL

Georgia

04/2019: Great job setting the edge with his long arms, and then shedding the OLT when the RB breaks inside and getting his hands on him. Natural stack and shed D-end. He stacks and sheds as quick as any DE at the SB. He looks like a D-end the Pats would draft in the 4th or 5th. When he stays and plays low he has great lateral burst. Uses his long arms well. When healthy he can fly around the field. When he slams into a pile it flies backwards. 

Nice Bull rush past the QB, then the quick shed with his hands again, and breaks inside to pressure the QB. He has great quick hands that he uses with great technique. Great shoulder pull into a Rip to hit Finley in the 4th to force the incompletion on 3rd and 2. He steps up on big downs. He was injured this off season, it hurt him in work outs.

He looked like a 5-Tech running his Forty at the Combine. He can really move for 280 pound dude. Great movement skills laterally and flashing forward. That is what makes him great. Nice slap. He can bend off his slap. He is great moving when he is heading to the QB. Very versatile DL. He reminds me of Wise. He has some Flower's like lateral bursts. 
He is a Day Three DE like Flower and Wise, who the Pats can pick up and develop into a nightmare for the AFC East. Vastly underrated. One my favorite DLs in this Draft. The Pats might have to pick him up at 97 or 101. But any pick beyond that is an excellent steal. 
"Clear-cut 'tweener' lacking the quickness and rush of a defensive end and the mass of an interior tackle," Zierlein wrote. "Ledbetter has an ability to win with skill, technique and effort over traits and twitch, but that will become much more challenging on the next level unless he continues to get bigger and stronger. He doesn't offer rush value, but he plays hard and does his job. He should find work as a blue-collar backup defensive lineman with some flexibility between DE and DT, depending on scheme." Huh! Sounds like a Pats D-end to me. 

Career Highs: 10 tackles vs. LSU, 2018.
2018: One of four permanent team captains for the 2018 season...Started 13 of 14 games at DE and has 56 total tackles, tops among down linemen and fourth-best among all defenders...second on team in tackles for loss with 6.5...career-high 10 stops vs. LSU...second-highest total of nine tackles came vs. Ga. Tech and included one stop for a 3-yard loss...had six tackles in win at Kentucky, two for lost yardage, including a third-quarter QB sack for a 7-yard loss...capped his stellar day vs. the Wildcats by causing a game-sealing fumble in the fourth quarter...had another forced fumble, along with four tackles, vs. Auburn...seven tackles vs. Florida...had three tackles, one for lost yardage, vs. Vanderbilt...one of three captains for Georgia vs. South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Kentucky, Georgia Tech and Alabama...co-winner of the Vince Dooley Defensive MVP award at team's post-season awards gala.
2017: Started in 11 of 15 games...finished season with 38 total stops, including 5.5 tackles for lost yardage, 2.5 QB sacks and nine QB pressures...matched career-high with six tackles (three solo), including a QB sack for a loss of eight yards in the Rose Bowl... had season-high five tackles in win over Missouri...made three tackles thrice, vs. Miss.

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

QB

NC ST

04/2019: My worry is his arm. His arm is not great. If is more Hoyer than Brady. He has so much to like mentally, like Hoyer. But he has trouble pushing the ball 40-yards down field. That leave a lot of freedom for DB to get over aggressive in coverage. 

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.

DE

BC

04/2010: He is getting better against the run. He has knack for getting across the line and tackling the RB. Nice job shoving off the TE, and getting inside and tackling the RB. I don’t like the way they use him. The way to often have him move laterally down the line to stay in front of the ball carrier inside of attacking forward. I would like to see him more free to attack forward. He is a long tall DE, who they really often played like a cover LB. He showed more of a knack for hitting the quarterback this year. Even though he didn’t really rush half the time. His film is almost inexplicable, the way they use him. 

Very smart guy. He played a weird hybrid position for BC. He lined up as a D-end, but more often that not dropped and spied the LOS. They liked to have Harris blitz, and when he did they would often have him drop in coverage. He lined up like a D-end, but he really play 3-4 OLB. He peeked too much. Needs to defeat the OT's hands first. He can set the edge off the line, shove off the OG, and tackle the RB. He is so good at playing the spy, and getting to the QB when he takes off. He does not play the traditional D-end. 

Nice agility in space. He played like an LB too much. He has some great movement skills in space. When they let him rush, he had great production last season, especially when you consider that he didn't rush half the time. He somehow garnered 9 Sacks and 11 TFLs. 

He was friggin' awesome against Wake Forest. He had a sack in the 1st on a Stunt inside. They let him rush for some reason, and he kept getting into the backfield over and over again. He kept getting pressure up the gut with that stunt all game. They really unleashed him and he produced. He has great explosion forward. He wants to read and then explode to the ball. He has great long arms and know how to use them. He can set the edge, and go and get the RB. He hit that QB 8 to 10 times in that game. 

He swiped the ORT's hands off his shirt and sacked Wake Forest QB running the arc half way through the 4th. A few minutes later he shoved the ORT up and swooped under him for another Sack. He swiped the ORT's arms off twice, and ran the arc to sack the QB for the 4th time late in the 4th. 
2018 (SENIOR): All-ACC Third Team... assisted on four tackles vs. UMass (9/1/18)... four tackles, one sack and two TFLs vs. Holy Cross (9/8/18)... set a BC record with four sacks at Wake Forest (9/13/18) on an eight-tackle night... named the ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week and the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week following the Wake Forest game... contributed four tackles, including 0.5 TFL at NC State (10/6/18)... secured three sacks in a four-tackle game against Louisville (10/13/18)... picked up a half sack with five tackles and knocked down a ball at the line, plus forced out another pass that was intercepted against Miami (10/26/18)... credited with three quarterback hurries and four tackles at Virginia Tech (11/3/18)... made five tackles, including 0.5 TFLs at Florida State (11/17/18)... provided two tackles and 0.5 TFLs vs. No. 19 Syracuse (11/24/18).

3-Tech

Washington

11/2016: He was a madman at the Senor Bowl. He was maybe the best defender to watch all week. He played 3-Tech all week. He would line up and explode into the backfield and turned each rep into a violent fist fight. Then they'd blow the whistle and he would instant spin around and sprint back to the DL line to get his next Rep. It was awesome. 

I don't remember him being that good at Washington. but he was something to see in SB practices.  He can stint and spin, and get outside to the QB. He is amazingly light on his feet for a fat guy. He made a lot of money at the SB. He can stack and shed, He can move laterally and right into the RB. He was maybe the best DT at the SB practices. 

He's short, fat, and has short arms. "He's built like a bouncer," a scout said. "But he gives you an honest day's work every time he steps out on the field." And, he was my favorite DL to watch at the Senior Bowl. He was a whirl wind at the SB. Non stop movement. Very nice feet moving forward and backwards. 

2018: Winner of the 2018 Morris Trophy as the top defensive lineman (as voted by opposing team players) in the Pac-12 ... played in and started all 14 games ... five tackles in a start against Auburn in the season opener ... two stops in the win over North Dakota ... named the coaches' lineman of the game for the UND game ... three tackles, including a nine-yard sack, in the win at Utah ... won the coaches' lineman of the week award for the second week in a row after the win over the Utes ... seven tackles, including half of a tackle for loss, against Arizona State ... one stop in the win over BYU ... made two tackles in the win at UCLA ... had seven stops at Oregon ... five tackles, including half of a tackle for loss, in the win over Colorado ... tied his career high with 10 tackles, including two tackles for loss and a sack, at California ... had one tackle and also intercepted a pass in the Huskies' win over Stanford ... named the UW coaches' lineman of the week for the win over the Cardinal ... three tackles in the Husky win over Oregon State ... three tackles, including a 12-yard sack, in the Apple Cup win at WSU ... three tackles, including half a sack, against Utah in the Pac-12 Championship Game ... three tackles, one of them for a loss, against Ohio State in the Rose Bowl ... for the third straight season, won the L.

Chuma Edoga- 6-3, 308, 34 3/4"Arms, 21 Reps, (O) 5.19, 

OT

USC

04/2018: Great feet and balance at the SB. But he keeps his hands outside, and slaps them inside. He has to keep his hands high and tight. When his hands are extended he moves his feet beautifully and keeps the DE at arms length. He made a lot of money at the SB. He looked like an NFL OLT in the SB game. He showed better hands and footwork than he showed this season. Very interesting ORT who played some OLT at SB, and he looked damn good. Nice base and feet. 

He played low and in balance all game. He has a nice punch to stop the explosion of the rusher. He has a great initial burst off the line in pass pro, that really separated himself from the rest of the O-line at SB. Ridiculous long arms. When he stays and plays low in balance he looks like an NFL OLT. He wasn't as successful doing that during last season. Underdeveloped guy who has a lot to prove if he wants to go in Day Two. 

CAREER: He has appeared in 34 games in his career, with 16 career starts.
2018: Edoga returns for his second year as a starting offensive tackle as a senior in 2018.
2017: Edoga started 12 games at right offensive tackle as a junior in 2017. He sprained an ankle at Washington State and missed the Oregon State and Utah games.
2016: Edoga was an often-used backup offensive tackle as a sophomore in 2016, able to play on the left or right side. Overall in 2016, he appeared in 9 games (all but Stanford, Utah, California) and started the season’s first 2 games (Alabama, Utah State) at left tackle. He missed the Utah game while sick and the California game because of a team rules violation.

*Shareef Miller- 6-4 254, 33.5"Hands, 16 Reps, (O) 4.69, 4.45 SS,

DE

Penn ST

04/2018: Miller is a Strongside DE who can take on the double at the point and get to the RB. He will get fooled by play action. He will stand up on passing down. He can cover the TE outside. Nice initial burst to get the ORT at a disadvantage. Great job grabbing the ORT's arms and controlling him as he turns the corner. He needs to get stronger. 
He will stand up on the Blindside. He can set the Edge on the blindside. But he will get too high sometimes and get put on skates by the OLT. He can drive the TE back inside almost into the RB. He will get stuck in traffic stunting inside.  He had his best season in 2018 with 7.5 Sacks and 15 TFL. Better athlete than football player. So their is more upside. 

He does a great job powering blockers back, but struggles to shed them. So his rush turns into a towing tractor pull to often. He can read the screen and break out of his rush and cause the QB to throw it away. Nice spin move inside off the Rip. Nice stunter inside, when he can get clean through the line. He is better at finding the RB in the backfield than the QB. 
2018 Season: Made 13 starts: Appalachian State (9/1): Recorded three tackles and a tackle for loss...Named the coaching staff's Defensive Player of the Week. at Pittsburgh (9/8): Made two tackles for loss, including a solo sack. Kent State (9/15): Recorded a career-best three tackles for loss and tied a career high with two sacks...Named the coaching staff's Defensive Player of the Week. at Illinois (9/21): Had two QB hurries. Ohio State (9/29): Recorded five tackles...Made three solo stops...Assisted on a tackle for loss. Michigan State (10/13): Recorded two solo tackles, both for loss...Registered a sack and a QB hurry. Iowa (10/27): Collected two tackles and a QB hurry. at Michigan (11/3): Made four stops, including two solo. Wisconsin (11/10): Recorded three tackles, all solo...Matched a career high with two sacks...Recovered a fumble and returned it 7 yards. at Rutgers (11/17): Made a career-best seven tackles...Registered 2.5 tackles for loss, including a solo sack...Named the coaching staff's Defensive Player of the Week. Maryland (11/24): Collected two solo tackles...Had one tackle for loss. vs. Kentucky (1/1): Registered a career-high eight tackles...Recorded a full tackle for loss and a half-sack...Added a QB hurry.

Daylon Mack- DT 6-1 320 Texas A&M

DT

A&M

04/2019: He looks like an NFL Nose Tackle. Great lateral burst right off the snap. Plays with great leverage. He is lower than all the OLs. But looks like a run down guy only. All low power and leverage. If the OL lets the him get under him he can end up on the ground quick. Great steady power once he gets the OL moving backwards. He makes OLs lose their balance and technique with his leverage. Good job sinking the hip. Nice feet moving laterally over the bag.

HE came into the Senior Bowl looking to overcome a disappointing Senior Season. He has some value as a run stuffer in the NFL. 

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

FS

Iowa

Quick pedal. Hips a little tight. Love his pedal. He can sink his hips and really move back fast. Tight hipped and extra step when opening them. "You’ve got to be able to think fast," Hooker said. "You can’t be just out there playing and using your athletic ability," He had a sub 7.0 3-Cone. A 6.95 is a huge number for him. 
He is a Strong Safety who HAS to move to FS in the NFL. "There could be a tight end coming at you," Hooker said. "You need to get off the block. Or it could be a 5-10, 180-pound receiver that can fly." He was a disaster in the Slot. He has the worst eyes of any DB in the Draft. When he was in the Slot he picked the wrong guy on the Option every time.
He tested out as elite athlete at Free Safety, which is here Iowa refused to play him. "If he can run anywhere in the 4.5s with that size and show relative fluidity?" Liskiewitz said. "When he’s running 3-cone and that kind of stuff, I think he does have a chance to move up into that Day 2 discussion," Not with that Tape. 

When they lined up him at FS he made plays, like his INT against Maryland when he was in Cover Two. "You get those teams in the back end of the 2nd round and they might be like, ‘He’s got the height-weight. He’s got the speed. He may not be super elite in any of this, but we like his pedigree, where he’s from, what he’s done,'" Liskiewitz said. "The reality is corners and safeties, that ultimately is, beyond quarterbacks, the most important position group on the field now. You can’t get enough of those." Right now he is a Cover Two Safety and a special teams player. The closer to the line they put him the worse he looked. 
He played the Nickel a lot (:01). He could get physical on the edge (:09). Played the nickel like a FS. He wanted to read first and then react. He would get physical at the point, but then Zone drop as well (:15). He got lost in the middle a lot (:22). Though he loves to jam WRs. Just let him Press if you want him to play Nickel. 

Looked more comfortable in off. Nice quick feet in pedal (31). He has to get the RB there. He kept getting lost in the middle playing out of position. He is not a Slot Corner under any circumstance (:41). Great quicks, he has that twitch, but he doesn't trust himself. He should have popped that WR and Sack the QB (:50). He dropped back, and got into nice FS position (:57). Watch him reverse field and flash forward like a FS to make the tackle. 

Let's see the aggression. He got aggressive that time and wanted to hit the QB after his terrible whiff on his last blitz, and misread it again (1:05). He got tentative and taken out by the WR. But watch the power to pop him off at the end of the play. Where the hell was that before the whistle (1:12)? He brought the hammer there finally.

He dropped a little and got into more of a FS position. Then he saw it. He shoved off the WR and got the Screen guy, and ripped the ball out. He needs to go to a team on Day Three and play Cover Two where he can read the play right (1:22). Watch the burst forward when he thought the QB had the ball (1:48). When they lined him up at FS in Cover One or Cover Two he had great eyes. He read it right every time (1:05). But the closer to they lined him up to the LOS the worse his eyes got. He is not a Nickel, Strong Safety, or Slot Corner by anyone's measurement.  

They started backing him off the line a little, and he started making plays. He froze to read, which is what he does (1:56). He he has a second or two to refocus and made the play. 

He lined up with the Slot WR again. But he always wants to drop like a FS staring down the QB. He runs deep with the WR with no problem (2:14). That's terrible (2:22). I'm done.

WR

Texas

04/2019: He looks line an NFL WR. He will line up in the Slot sometimes. When they go three wide, he is usually in the slot. He disappears in games sometimes. They will swing him out of the backfield sometimes, when he disappears to try can get him going. When he gets hot he can be the best player on the field. Nice job drawing flags when they get in the Redzone. Terrific blocker on screens behind him. He has great size. He got hot in the second half in the Conference Champ Game, and he scored two TDs in the 3rd to tie the game. He can use his size to post up. He will drop the easy one sometimes. 

He is great at using his body to get position to make the catch on the smaller DBs. He is a tough guy to stop on the slant. CBs can’t get across his body. One drop in 1st Combine. He didn’t have a drop in 2nd Gantlet. He can make the throw behind him looks easy, Big target who can extend his hands. He looks like he can get up higher than anyone to snag the ball. He is a power forward WR, who does not have to get wide open to catch it.

Trey Adams- 6-8, 327, #72

OLT

Washington

09/2018: He did not play against Auburn in the first game of the season. He is going to have to drop if he can't get on the field. 

07/2018: Vs Cal: Nice job shadowing the DE with his hands and feet. Nice adjustment when he lines up wide to pick up OLB. When the OLB doesn't blitz, he slams into the 5-Tech with some nice force. He is so smooth in pass pro that it is tough to see him get in trouble very often. Excellent technique. Nice job shoving OLB inside, and then sliding outside to pick up the blitzing DB. He can make it look easy sometimes. Great blocking down on the DT.

"I'm not too worried about the NFL right now," Adams said. "I'm just worried about this team, worried about making the o-line better. I'm worried about tomorrow's practice. I'm worried about, 'What am I eating for dinner?'"

07/2018: Vs Oregon: Nice power and balance. He has the feet, but he plays a little high, and can lose leverage sometimes. When he get low in the run game, he can power the D-end back five yards. He stones the bigger D-ends at the line like they are stuck in quicksand. He has some suddenness bursting back in pass pro. When he gets low, he can impact the edge guy with some serious power. He can get beat by the outside speed on a blitzing OLB.

"We're real good friends. We're similar in mindset. Similar in what we do off the field. We both like the outdoors, we like to have fun" Adams said about ORT McGary. "I think he's a great counterpart to me. We're similar body types, similar players. So it's been fun to grow with him, fun to work out with him. Great guy." 

07/2018: Vs Penn ST: When he gets his hands on a rusher they are done. Nice balance with arms up moving backwards. He will miss on the backside, when he tries to shove the DE and doesn't move his feet. Great job moving his feet when he locks onto the rusher. He can miss his initial hit on runs to his side, and then step inside and recover with a great shove on the D-end. 

07/2018: Vs Rutgers: He likes to move forward into rushers a little more than I like. "Obviously, there's no substitute for experience. You've got to have some," Huskies OL coach Sam Huff said about Adams and McGary. "Size is one thing. But when you have guys who can move like that, it's very impressive." He snaps over to the DT as quick as anyone I've seen when the DE stunts inside behind him. He zone blocks angry sometimes.

BC

04/2019: When they throw him the ball he catches. He can get to the third level and catch the ball. He has that knack for getting open on the 3rd level. Nice flag route to beat the Safety to the sideline for the easy looking reception. He is a big strong guy, the FS hit him and the FS fell down and Sweeney looked like nothing happened.

He is a great Redzone target. Great goal line target. He knows where the marker is and he fights to reach it. He can hold his block for a long time, as the little WR danced behind him for what seems like minutes. He is the guy defense consistently double and even tripled inside. He keeps getting better as a blocker. He was better in 2017 than 2018 as a receiver.

He looked really good in drills at the SB. He made some money. He was more than just occupying blockers. He was getting upfield and making plays. He showed great heavy hands at SB. He looked unblockable in practice. Much more impressive in Senior Bowl practices. Great job attacking the arms of the blocker to win. He got shirt near ripped off. 
Great core and strength. He has great feet. He did not look like a NT moving over bags. 

Heavy hitter. Didn’t sink hips on hip drill. He can really move laterally on hip drill. Explosive moving forward. He started 21 consecutive games coming into 2018, and garnered 99 tackles and 11 TFL.

RB

ND

08/2018: He is a great back. He looks like an NFL runner. He has that knack for finding a lane, and making the big play. He is a guy who should go later than expected and will play for a long time in the NFL. He has great speed around the corner. Great lateral burst in the hole to make the ILB miss. He has some great speed in open field. He has off the field issues. He looks like a plug and play RB if he can keep his head screwed on straight. 

He out ran the entire FLA ST secondary for a 50-yard TD. Great blend of size and speed. He has some nice power in traffic. He still has a lot of wear on his tires. Nice blocker in the backfield. Terrific speed outside. He can make a guy miss with a quick foot inside, and bouncing with a great burst outside. He looks like he can be a great pick up on Day Three. He can also run it with some power up the gut to work the clock at the end of games.

RB

A&M

When he breaks through the line he is gone. He has that special speed that can change a game. Terrific straight arm. Great shiftiness in open field. Fast with great quick feet. He is so quick changing direction behind his blockers. Not the best blocker in blitz pick up. He is a small guy who is so fun to watch. He runs with power and an abundance of courage. He wins the physical confrontations. Great lateral explosion. He will line up out wide like a WR, and run a pattern and catch the ball. Nice soft hands. He has a great feel cutting off blockers. 

He will stand in the hole and take the big hit in blitz pick up. He looks like a 3rd down back, but he doesn't play like one. He is not ready to be a 3rd down back in the NFL yet. He has to work on his blocking a ton to be put on the field in 3rd down. Great shiftiness and herky-jerky speed that makes it tough to tackle him. Great quick feet that he can use to make guys miss. He gives good effort in blitz pick up. He will lead block on the QB draw. Terrific catching the ball on the 3rd level and making guys miss. He was better blocking against Ole Miss

RB

Florida Atlanta

04/2019: Great COD. He can burst in and out of cut. Easy catcher. Turns his body back and catches it smoothly behind him. Smooth catching the deep ball. Great Combine after his Forty. Much better receiver than I though. He is terrific in space catching the ball. 

defender bounce off his thighs like tumbleweeds. Constant break away threat, but also a great power running. He was much slower and smaller than expected at the Combine. 

Great break away runner who shockingly ran a 4.66 Forty. It was like a gut shot. His speed on Tape was so great it was like up was down. Short guy who looks like he is all thighs. He is gong to struggle to do what he did at Florida Atlantic. He was top five RB on Tape. He is a good block with a square squat frame. He looked like a back up at the Combine.

QB

NC ST

04/20109 He was throw the ball a little late and behind WRs to start the SB. He stepped in the game and drove the team right down the field for a FG that should have been a TD. He doesn’t look the part, but he can play the part. I was so disappointed with his play this season that I threw him away in my head. But he was very impressive in the game at the SB. He hit receivers all over the field and drove through the South defense like butter. He reminded me of Mayfield last season, and maybe that is move of the QB that teams are looking for. Smaller faster and quicker QBs who can get out of the pocket and cause mayhem for the defense. H did miss one throw that should have been a TD. He is one tough kid.
