I get a bad rap on here for my username. I DO TRY however to be as unbiased as possible.

Not in this thread though.

Tout/Pimp a player from your favorite college that is going in the draft this year.He doesn't have to be a big name. Maybe a player thats flying under the radar a little bit.

I'm gonna go with my guy CB Ryan Palmer from Texas.

He may be a little undersized at 5-10 186, but he is not afraid to hit.Palmer started 2 years at CB at Texas posting 136 tackles, three sacks, nine TFL, four INT, including one returned for a TD, 24 PBU, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery during his career.

I'm not great at comparisons but, I think CB Jacque Reeves is a fair comparison. Palmer is FAST, can tackle and is technically sound in my opinion.

I also think Palmer is going to have a great combine.

I think he gets drafted in the 5-7 rounds and makes the team and has a solid career.




Who's next??

Neefy Moffett is someone who interest me a lot in a switch to the 3-4.

Two guys are Tyrell Sutton and Rasheed Ward, I love them both.

Sutton will be an excellent running back, the only thing against him is size. He's pretty fast, excellent hips, great vision, and incredibly elusive. Not only that, he can actually break tackles!

Rasheed Ward is a speedy receiver who could develop into a slot receiver. Even if that doesn't work out, he could be an excellent return man in the NFL.

Watch out for both!

Moffett looks like a good call. I watched a little FSU football last year, but not too much. He sounds like the type of player thsat could do well in a 3-4. I don't know too much about him though.

I love Alex Mack, he is the best run blocker in the NCAA last year!

Donald Washington. Never got the pub he deserved because he was overshadowed by Malcolm Jenkins, wasn't a ballhawk, and was in and out of the doghouse. He is a shutdown corner though and a very good athlete. I can see him pushing into the 4th round and potentially starting one day.

Macho Harris, the scouts are doubting him, but I could see him having a solid career.

I agree. I can see him being a solid special teams contributor early in his career too.

Whew, Michigan State is gonna be a tough one lol.

I'll go with Javon Ringer. The dudes a physical beast, even though he's only around 5'9 200. State did not use him right at all this year, basically running dives on every run play. Most of his big runs came when he cut back outside. He does have pretty good speed, although not elite. His hands are also a positive for him. The main concern I have with him is durability. I think he'll be solid in a 2-back system, or as a great backup that could handle 3rd down duties as well.

Anthony Heygood, OLB Purdue - I'm actually shocked that he didn't get a combine invite. At the very least he'd be an outstanding special teamer, but I can see him turning into a good WILL.

Chris Wells is a top 10 talent who will slip because of toughness/dedication questions. Best. Stiffarm. Ever. :)

Other than Robert Ayers I'm not really impressed with anyone Tennessee is putting out this year. But you guys already know all about him thanks to TH and I. :D

Lawrence Sidbury, DE, Richmond. 6-3, 267, 35 inch arms. 4 sacks in the FCS National Championship Game. Monster.

Keep and eye out for Josh Vaughan, RB, Richmond. He won't get drafted, but once he gets in a camp he could open some eyes.

Chris Wells at his best is every bit as impressive as Adrian Peterson and Darren McFadden. A Top 5 talent that will likely slip out of the top 15.

Jordan Norwood is the best possession receiver in this year's draft. He already won the hands competition and he runs very precise and crisp routes. People always knock his size but if you watch the game tape, he isn't afraid to go over the middle and take a shot as he is very good at protecting himself and always bounces back up. He will either go late in the draft or even go undrafted but he will have a Wes Welker-type career.

That'd be my pick. He measured in a bit taller than I expected at 5'11. "Rumors" suggest he could get into the high 4.4's in his 40. If that happens, he could end up a reasonable late round pick. I expect him to be no better than 4.55 or 4.6.

CB's DeAndre Wright and Glover Quin, New Mexico

DeAndre is a playmaker that has good man to man skills. New Mexico's defense put him (and Quin for that matter) on an island in single coverage most of the time. He is a former RB and can really make things happen with the ball in his hands.

Quin would make an excellent cover 2 corner. He's big and physical and plays best with his defender in front of him. Faced a lot of action due to being on an island, and due to the fact that teams tended not to throw against DeAndre Wright very much. Even with that increased action, Quin more than held his own.

Well ... the UVA class might be looking better than I thought. We'll have to wait and see Sintim and Appleby, but Phillips workouts were solid, and he had a strong senior year. Not a top tier TE, but for a team that just needs their TE to grab 30 or so catches a year, work the field, be a solid blocker, he'll fit (Mularkey screams out at me here). Probably still 4th-5th round, although he's probably moved his floor up a bit.

Peerman's top RB time surprised me (more due to the other poor times.) I've always felt he reminded me a tiny bit of a young Curtis Martin. That said, while I think he can be effective, even as a backup, he's not coming off until the 2nd day, barring a surprise.

Michael Oher has had a disappointing post-season, but he will be a stud wherever he ends up. He is a natural left tackle.

WR Mike Wallace could shoot up boards. Decent size at 6-0 199 with a 4.33 40 and a 40 inch vert. Wallace was a hell of a deep threat for us and he has some really good hands, he could wind up being a solid player for someone. He needs to be more consistent with his routes, however. I would say he is somewhat in the mold of Bernard Berrian.

Nebraska and FAU fan!

Marlon Lucky, RB, Nebraska - Has a lot of untapped potential

Frantz Joseph, LB, Florida Atlantic - Why isn't this guy at the combine?

Ill disagree Sniper, I really think Terrance Taylor is a tough SOB that could carve out a career as a run stuffing DT.

Mike Reilly from Central. I think that if he can get in the right situation he could be a serviceable starter or at least a backup somewhere after a couple of years.

FB Brannon Southerland had a great combine 6'0 242, 28 reps, 4.68 40 time, 38' vertical, 10.0 broad jump. He missed time this year with injury, but still has 3 years of starting time. He can block, catch, and score TD's.
