I think albert young will get drafted earlier than the 7th, if he runs a decent fourty time fourth round is not out of the question, kenny iwebema is possibly a third round pick as well

Where does Godfrey rank versus the other corners in your mind including the Juniors who might declare?

I think he ranks just behind the 1st tier of guys:

Jenkins, Jenkins, Ikegwuonu, King, VT CBs, Smith, Talib & Cason.

in the 2nd tier:

Terrell Thomas, DeJuan Tribble, Trae Williams, Tracy Porter, etc.

He will probably have one of the most impressive combines of the DBs, which will help his cause.

Albert Young was a BEAST in high school...I wouldn't mind seeing the Eagles grabbing him...I think he has a shot at going 3-4.

Godfrey is a very physical big corner. I would say any where in the second and if he run's a 4.4 and has some good 3 shuttle times and what not I wouldnt be suprised if he sneaks in the 1st round. He has good read and reaction skills, he is aggresive going after the ball but not overly aggressive. He has a knack for making plays, also a very good tackler.

i think godfrey goes in the 2-3 round area. the only thing holding him back is his lack of a track record IMO. this is only his 2nd year starting, and i think the lack of game film might hurt his stock. not to mention i believe he will move to free safety in the NFL.

i know aaron ross only started for one year, but that was one of the most impressive seasons ive seen...and he won the thorpe award

LB Mike Humpal

CB Charles Godfrey

RB Albert Young

Godfrey is a playmaker, I think he'll be solid in the NFL.

Humpal is pretty solid against the run, not overly athletic though, he might be able to make a team as a ST player.

Young is overrated IMO. He's got good vision, but not much of a burst. I personally like Damian Sims better.

Iwebema is an underachiever. I think he'll get drafted late probably on potential. Mattison is alright, but I don't think he has much of a pro future. I personally think that the two backup DEs Clayborn and Ballard are better. The D-line could be very good next year.

Mitch King is tenacious. I think that if he puts on some more weight, he might make it as penetrating UT in a 4-3 scheme, especially on passing downs.

Moeaki is great. I think he'll really establish himself next year if he stays healthy and if they can get someone who can throw the ball. That last one is a big if.

To even mention Adam Shada as a prospect is ridiculous. He's terrible.

Mitch King for DE in a 3-4?

Mitch King for DE in a 3-4?

Well right now he's listed at 264lbs, which would be very light for a 3-4 DE. I'm not sure if he's strong enough to play 3-4 DE. To me he's best bet is to try to put on about 20lbs. and use his speed as a 4-3 UT to penetrate. I'm not sure if he'll ever be an every down guy in the NFL.
