My pick. 5th Round. David Clowney
http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/wr/davidclowney.html

I am a big fan of this guy as a mid-late round pick. I think he got messed up by a PITIFUL QB in Virginia this last season, but I think it could help us in the long run.

Another one to watch for.
Brandon Frye - OT - Virginia Tech

This guy is BURIED in the list of Offensive Tackles, but I think in the 3rd or 4th round he'd be a STEAL. The guy is POWERFUL and has some serious punch when he gets his arms out there. I think he's just overlooked. He's not overly huge...but at 6'4 he's big enough and over 300 pounds. He could be exactly what we need.

I dont think Clowney is very good, I wouldnt mind Frye..... I think a lot of the OT this year are about equal. He falls somewhere in the middle, and with good coaching, he can be pretty good...

Clowney has very good hands. He just has never had great production, due in large part to the fact that his QB couldn't get the ball near him. I think as a 5th round guy he'd be a great Kick Return option as well as someone who can help as a 3rd/4th WR kinda guy.

I'm not sure Frye fits in with what Petrino wants on the OL, as his body, from what I've heard, is close to being maxed out in size. Clowney is a possibility late. Adding someone like Noland Burchette late may make some sense as well.
