BC's JoLonn Dunbar, he is a playmaker and a leader. He is big and athletic (former RB) who will not blaze in the 40 but can certainly move. He has played every spot in ther 4-3 and I like him as a MLB or possibly SLB.

Shane Simmons. ILB. Western Washington.
Ran a 4.5 in H.S. and lead the NCAA DII in Tackles per game for a while. He should run a low 4.5 and is 6-1 230.

What great reasoning, I guess that would make Cooper Manning a great NFL player.

Back onto the topic, not meaning to be a homer, but Wesley Woodyard is just a complete animal and would be a steal for any team that takes him in rounds 4-5.

Bo Ruud is nowhere near as good as his brother and he will be lucky to be drafted at this stage. Special Teams are probably going to be his best shot at the NFL.

Wesley Woodyard and Spenser Larsen. Although I see Woodyard as more of a SS, Larsen is going to be a beast, although he does remind of Spencer Havner of UCLA from the 2006 draft.

If Larsen makes it he'll have to move inside.

I agree he's not as good. I meant to say IF he turns out to be half as good as Barrett he'll be solid.

Maybe I'm wrong but when I watched Nebraska this season, it seemed like their front 4 was the big weakness on the defense. As we all know, if you don't have a decent front 4, it's hard for your LBs to be effective. I'm not predicting Bo to be anything more than a backup/special teams player either but I think he has good potential.

He's a senior at Eastern Kentucky. He's a transfer from a D1 school(I can't remember which one at the moment). He's got really good size and speed and he and Cromartie-Rodgers will be neck and neck to see who is the best small school CB.

My late round steal is Trevor Scott DE out of Buffalo. the guy is a converted TE playing DE and has averaged like 10 sacks a year over the past two years since making the change. he has good size at 6'5" 255 and is expected to run in the high 4.5 range. I think he'll be an excellent 3rd down pass rusher at the next level along the lines of a Robert Mathis or Trent Cole.

I believe that day 1 still means rounds 1-3 for me, but I was still careful to incude the rounds when using the term to mean the 1st 3 rounds. It is really too bad about the term Day 1 losing its meaning because the 3rd round was an excellent cut off point when discussing the draft, that is why the NFL originally included it previously in day 1. Now we are going to have to invent a new term for discussing rounds 1-3. Any suggestions?

I agree with this.

I'll go with a local guy I've seen play a few times this year at UCONN. Larry Taylor. He's a WR/KR/PR. Best known for 'fair catching' and then promptly running in a TD against Louisville.

He's only about 5'8, but what he lacks in size he makes up for with burst, speed, and vision. I don't see him being anything more than a KR/PR, as I think he's too brittle to play the WR spot, but as mentioned I think he'll be a good special teams player whether he's a late pick or an UDFA.

Perhaps Gibril28 could back me up on this one, I know he's a UConn fan like myself.

I like Dorien Bryant out of Purdue, but due to his lack of height, he will mainly be used as a slot receiver, but I think he can be very effective there. I would say Marcus Monk, but some team will fall in love with his height and draft him in the 3rd.

Steve Johnson from Kentucky is one WR I think will come up big in the NFL. All season he was Woodson's clutch WR.

Jerome Simpson from Coastal Carolina is another guy to watch IMO. He's been pretty productive and has massive hands. He also has pretty good size. He's not the fastest but neither was James Jones so you never know. I've read he has a pretty good vertical (around 41 I think I read).

I peg Trevor Laws as a late 4th, early 5th rounder. I personally am not a Notre Dame fan, but I do like Laws' motor. I wouldn't mind the Giants spending a 4th/5th on him if there isn't much available at that point.

I'm gonna go with Jason shirley (6'5 332) out of fresno state. He has allpro physical tools, but lacks the allpro mentality. This is one of those guys that really needs to shine in his interviews and convince his team that he won't drive drunk and crash into another building again etc. and focus on football. I personally don't see that as a possibility, becuase i figured being thrown off the football team the first time would have straightened him out, but it didn't seem to. He actually had a 20,000 dollar warrant out for him when he missed his court hearing the other day; he recently plead not guily to three misdemeanor charges of drunk driving and whatnot.

On the off chance that a team can straighten him out, they will get a fantastic DT or 34 DE. I have only watched highlights, because i don't get any FSU games, but i never saw him beat one on one.

Nebraska OLB Bo Ruud. If he's half as good as his brother Barrett he'll be a pretty solid LB.

If you like your LB's to be complete wimps. Bo would not take on a midget if he tried to block him, nor would he take on a 5 year old if he lowered his shoulder. He understands the game better than his brother and is always in position, but he has the mental toughness of a 2 year old.

Two guys to watch out for from that Nebraska team ..

Maurice Purify - Has the off the field problems which will make him drop. As a WR though, he drops basically nothing. Has HUGE hands. Loves to block and will put a DB on his back routinely. Does not have great speed though. Reminds me of a Keyshawn Johnson-esque wide receiver.

Steve Octavien - Just give this guy the ability to make plays and he will. Struggles with the mental aspect to the game. If you just tell him to make plays, he will. Almost uncanny how much better of a player he became when Nebraska allowed him that freedom.

Thoughts on Cornhuskers linebacker Corey McKeon?

If I would not get ban for saying what I think about Corey, I would say it.

I'll just say this -- his teammates hated him and he (along with Keller) were two of the main problems that surrounded Nebraska's team this year. McKeon and Keller are best friends and if they hang around each other, I would be REALLY scared of McKeon's off the field habits.

As far as on the field, he'll be lucky to get drafted. The same as Ruud. If your team touches either you should punch yourself in the face. But if McKeon has a quality interior line he can play off of, he'll be serviceable. If not, you would not even want him on your PS. Look at his sophmore stats when he had guys like LeKevin Smith, Titus Adams and on occasion, Adam Carriker covering him up. Compare that to his junior and senior stats when the talent was not as good in front of him.

I'll just put it like this -- the best LB by FAR on our team did not even start. Lance Bradenburgh. The guy was physical, could cover and played all 3 LB positions. He played quite a bit, even though he did not start. If you like want to spend a 6th-7th or possibly UDFA spot on him, he could likely be a steal.

Guys like Laws and Landri just have non stop motors. Neither are that naturally athletically gifted compared to other players but they just never quit. I'd say Laws' motor is even higher than Landri's. What Landri is good at is being quick off the snap by timing the count very well.

Watching Bernard Morris in the Hula Bowl so far definitely puts him on my radar.

I really like Morris. Seen him in a few games this year and have always been impressed. I definitely think he sticks somewhere as a QB. Don't really get why quite a few places don't even have him listed.

Best pick of the 7th round.

Bryan Johnston DE, Gardner Webb is probably a 3rd or 4th rounder. He will make the probowl someday, file that away.

Dizon will make a solid cover-2 linebacker. I'd love to see the Bucs draft him.

Wallace Gilberry from Alabama. I heard he will be a 5th or 6th rounder. Had a great Independance Bowl game.

ADAM SHADA: cornerback, university of iowa, very underrated corner who i believe was a 2nd team all big ten 2006. Performed very well against ohio state that year, with several open field tackles against ginn and gonzalez. Scouts question his athletic ability and overall speed (gee i wonder way, just take a look at him for the answer) but if he performs well at his pro day (sub 4.5 40) should be a day 2 steal. I would grab him in the 4th if he times well, but we will see.

Danny Amendola of Texas Tech should be a good slot receiver/kick returner for someone.

Tony Temple will also be a steal for someone.

Watch out for Samuel Giguère WR from up here in Canada (University of Sherbrooke), he'll play in the East-West Shrine Bowl, he is 6' 220 and runs a low 4.4. He's a real big guy with some quickness. Will be ignored because he played in the CIS but could make a team out of training camp and surprise people down the road.

Obviously this can be seen as homerism, but im going to mention the guys im most farmiliar with, Rutgers Guys.

Eric Foster-Could bulk up a little and play rush-backer in the 3-4 or lose some weight and play mlb in the 3-4. I'm not sure, but he might even be able to gain 15 lbs or so and play 4-3 de because he has shown the ability to take on bigger guys on a regular basis playing dt in college. At the very least could be a special teams stud.

Jeremy Zuttah- Extremley athletic tackle, probably best suited for ZBS, however, I could see him gaining some weight and being a starter for many teams at tackle.

Ron Girault- An experienced safety who rarely makes mistakes and has shown tons of consistency over the years. Has been overshadowed a bit by Greene the last three years, but is a great safety on his own merits. Could be a good special teams guy and backup, maybe a potential spot starter.

Pedro Sosa-Unlike my opinion of Zuttah, I believe he needs to be in a ZBS because he is not nearly the athletic specimen and doesn't have close to the same potential to put on weight because he doesn't have the same type of frame.

Edit:
I forgot about Mike Fladell-Just a huge guy who is a mauler inside. Not an outstanding athlete, but many guards aren't. Not necessarily a star but could make an impact on a team very early on in his career. Hes just so huge.

I was going to say Pig Brown will be a STEAL if he fully recovers from his achilles injury (which he should).

WR Marcus Smith, New Mexico - Big, strong, fast, and good hands. Decent KR as well. Has only played the position since coming to college, as he was a RB previously. Still has some things to learn about the position, but has a lot of upside.

Craig Turner is a Great Value Pick in the late rounds. This kid is fast and can play on both sides of the ball. During his tenure at Southern Illinois he played RB, CB, KR and PR. He was All Conference 3 years and made some All American teams. He finished #1 in KR in 1-AA football this year averaging 29.4yds per return. He was also tops in PR averaging over 11 yds per punt return. He's also a solid CB! What kind of buzz have you been hearing about him?

Jacob Hester. The guy is just a football player. He'll be one hell of a player for somebody.

Luke Swan:WR from Wisconsin: Good size (6'1 195lbs), runs great routes, has great hands, decent speed (4.5ish) was on a tear until he tore his hamstring during the season, if he heals in time for his pro day,and runs a good time, this guy should be a great pick up in the 4th round. You heard it here first.

One guy I want to bring up is RB Ryan Torain. He got injured in the second week of football this year, but this guy is a great short-yardage back if I ever saw one. Hopefully some team is smart enough to pick him up in the 6th.

I think Paul Hubbard has more potential. Hubbard seems like a Hines Ward clone to me.

I'm not so sure about that, swan has better hands and runs better routes, speed is about the same, but hubbard is bigger. But i would still go with swan.

To start with, I'm horrible at slotting this early so if some of these are 2nd rounders I apologize. Using 3rd round as my starting point, these are the ones that I think might have a shot. Obviously there will be more busts than boom but I think they bring good value in later rounds
