I would love to Andre Smith to get a look. He was underutilized at VT but has some nice catches on the year including five TD grabs.

Some mid-late round o-lineman in there I know a lot of people on this board like.

Stephen Burton, from West Texas A&M is a VERY interesting prospect. He probably won't be drafted any higher than the 5th round, but he's a very well-rounded prospect with good size, speed, and hands. I didn't see any of his games from 2010, but last offseason I watched 4 of his games from 2009 and came away very impressed.

I'm interested to see what the Marios of the nation squad can do (Harvey and Addison) and Andre Smith can do. Harvey in particular, I have no clue why people still have him as a 6th to 7th round pick. Kids a stud.

Good group of RBs. Draughn has improved a lot over his career and I like his upside.

He's not real fast or athletic, which limits his upside. He's basically a shorter Brandon Spikes who played at a smaller school. I like him too, but I'd be surprised to see him drafted before the 5th round.

Just throwing this out there, and i'm not sure if its true at all, but in his Marshall player bio, it says...

is also one of the fastest players on the team with an impressive 4.35 40-yard dash time

I dont think thats true but if he runs anywhere within .2-.3 of that, is more than fine, actually its really good.

FWIW I expect Andre Smith to contend with Rashard Carmichael to be the second VT player drafted behind RW. Very good all around TE.

Wow that's....unexpected. I would be very surprised if he runs a sub 4.60...but who knows. If that's the case, then maybe he will start to climb quite a bit.

Kris Durham is a receiver that a lot of people should look out for. He's about 6'5 with 4.5 speed.

He took over as the number 1 receiver for Georgia when A.J. Green was out for the first 4 games and he was very good by leading the team with 17 catches for 324 yards over that stretch.

He's been injured just about ever season at Georgia which will undoubtedly hurt his stock, but he's got some nice potential for any team the will pick him up in the latter rounds or through FA.

It's also where the Jags found Terrance Knighton. Don't sleep on this game, folks, because the scouts certainly don't.

Jerrell Powe added to the Texas roster

Also, to the disappoint of many, looks like Richard Sherman has been taken off the roster after his late add to the Senior Bowl.

Yup, some weigh-in results are in.

Some intriguing numbers:

Powe at 6'2, 331 pounds

Legree at 6'0, 211 pounds. Guy is gonna be a REALLY good sleeper

DJK at 5'11, 204 pounds.

Kendrick Ellis is massive at 6'5 336.

Powe with the Raji/Wilfork measurements...too bad his stock seems to be falling anyway...he's not as booksmart as those guys, but I think he's a nice guy and all.

Ellis...moooooooooooonster...I'm going to enjoy watching him get his hype. Like I said, I missed on Oghobaase because his body fell apart, but this guy Ellis is gonna be something.

Whitlock is the next Kelly Gregg. That is all.

a couple of things that i'm really impressed with.

I want to see Ryan Jones. He's supposed to be a MAJOR stud, and has insane athletic ability.

Adrian Moten 225, was hoping he'd be around 235. Love Ellis's measurements. Keith Payne coming in at 257 obviously he's going to be working at full back, should be interesting as he's a natural runner but has zero blocking experience. Definitely more gifted than Snelling.

I'm hoping to see Payne at running back actually.

Chad spann scored 49 TDs at northern illinois and breaks as many tackles as anyone, has a mean stiff arm, good feet and strong receiving skills. I feel that he is probably being slept on by too many people.

He played some FB in the years before Groh tried to run the spread. I would say he is more gifted than Jason Snelling as a runner, but Snelling has great hands, can block, and is actually a better runner than Payne. Payne is just a big guy that runs pretty hard and has decent burst but he seriously lacks vision and is far too easy to tackle for a guy his size. He has poor balance and his legs pretty much go dead on contact. I honestly think that if he started his career at fullback, a la Stephen Davis, it may really help him at the next level, teach him to play behind his pads, play with better leverage, etc. He has a ton of potential but he has just been underwhelming to this point. Still, his best ball could very well be ahead of him as he hadn't played a whole lot until this season... and barely did anything the year before.

He did a much better job this year at running with a lower pad level and hitting the hole instead of trying to bounce out everything. I agree Snelling has him on blocking, receiving, and profesionalism but Payne showed some pretty good hands this year. His biggest issue as you stated are balance and leverage. The legs dead on contact thing definitely applied to the carries he got his first 2 years but this year he definitely was one of the tougher guys in the conference to take down. His issue is that in high school he dominated because he was not only always bigger than everyone but he was faster than everyone. He never really learned how to be a true runner and read the holes. Compare that to Royster who played in the same district who had to learn how to be patient and how to run with proper leverage since he was never the biggest or fastest kid out there. I like the improvements he made this year and think can continue to with proper coaching. Problem is if he will be given that chance as rookies in today's NFL get cut if they aren't up to par from the get go. Hopefully he can make a practice squad and continue to improve.

I'd like to see Payne do well, but quite honestly, his running style resembles Chris Johnson's more than the LeGarrette Blount or Peyton Hillis power running like it should. I just saw way too many guys tackle him in space due to him either tripping or just leaning into the guy and falling. Considering I'm a big UVa fan, I know-watching college ball has sucked for me the past few years, and I had to catch most of UVa's games on ESPN3 this past season, I had hoped to see Payne and Dowling have good years---but I just didn't see them being special performers, just special talents.

Can't really say Payne didn't have a good year considering he had zero expectations. He led the ACC with 15 TD's and had 749 yards on 4.7 ypc which is pretty damned good. He just had to split carries. His style is actually similar to Blount's except Blount has far greater balance and is probably more athletic. They are both guys who when they get started can tear through a defense, both though can be shut down at the LOS if D-lineman get to them.

I can't really compare him at all to Blount. Considering I watched all Hoos and Bucs games this season (those are my two teams), I watched every carry this season by these guys.

I never said Payne didn't have a good year... as a matter of fact I was hoping that London would feed him far more coming down the homestretch so he'd have a shot at 1000 (if you root for UVa you have to have something to root for). I would compare Payne more to a guy like George Rogers... a big guy that more or less ran without a lot of power. He just didn't play as well, or dominate like I feel he should have. Payne runs hard but gets tripped up by the first tackler while Blount runs softly to the hole and then picks up steam after the 2nd and 3rd tacklers arrive. Whereas Blount seemed to thrive on contact, Payne often went down from first contact.

I think you're definitely right about Blount being more athletic but Payne might be faster and have better hands.

Did you see Payne didn't get a combine invite? I think he definitely deserved to be at the combine with his frame and movement skills.

Payne to Blount is a decent comparison. Or maybe brandon Jacobs who had similar yardage totals his senior year in school.

He is nothing like Blount except for in size and speed. Blount is a plodder that tiptoes up to the line and then accelerates when he sees a hole or on first contact. He has good feet and great balance.

Payne is a slasher that falls down on first contact. He has extreme difficult staying on his feet and horrible balance. He plays extremely top-heavy. He is a VERY different RB.

Effing Verica! You know that bum got invited to some crappy all-star game? I can't remember what it was called but I watched it anyways... it was pretty bad, especially when Verica was in the game.

At least UVa has a pretty good recruiting class this season, they may be pretty decent in a season or two, though I serioulsy doubt it will be with Ross Matheny at QB or Rocco or any of the other mini-Vericas. I'm wondering if Dominque Terrell was brought in to possibly play QB (I suppose I could ask my buddy who coaches him in HS).

Eh I have a nephew at Heritage so I saw Terrell play twice and he definitely won't be a QB. He'll be a WR/wildcat RB. He reminds me of Dexter McCluster. Could play DB I suppose as well as I've seen him listed there. He's not really a passer, has a really weak arm and is too short. I'd say Vic Hall was a far more impressive high school passer. Sick UVA recruiting class though. Nicholson is going to be a stud, excited about Phelps and Jennings. Haven't seen Watford or Green play yet but hopefully one of them will be good.

from a credible draft source...

If I’m going to put money on which prospect comes off the board first from this year’s game, my bet goes on Hampton DT Kenrick Ellis. At 6-5, 336 pounds, he does a great job sitting into his stance, exploding off the snap and keeping his pad level down through contact. He was really tough to move off the football during team sessions today and really uses his length well to keep himself clean on the move. Now, he is a character concern and does have inconsistent awareness off the snap. But he’s a real talent and overall there’s not much physically separating him from a guy like Baylor’s Phil Taylor.

It may have been a good thing he didn't get a Combine invite because I think his body isn't in the shape it should be. Well obviously it would have been better for him to get an invite, but he never really pushed the pile like I would have liked to see but he always did get a extra couple yards after contact. I've been a huge fan of his since his redshirt year when he was destroying the practice squad at UVa and there was a lot of buzz. I think he can make the adjustment but it's a matter of opportunity to get better.

I'm already looking to next year when Chase Minnifield's stock goes climbing. And of course Cam Johnson.

I've been hearing the same things about DT. I skipped out on watching him play so that's good info for me.

I don't know how I missed Watford. I didn't see where the Hoos signed ANY QBs and now I went back to Rivals and there he was. What I find most impressive about him is that he had a 3.8 GPA in HS and was enrolled in the IB program and signed a a month ago.

I guessed I missed him because unlike the usual UVa recruit, he had more than 2 stars by his name, wasn't from Pennsylvania, isn't a TE, and isn't an OT.

I'm excited about Cam Johnson and Chase Minnifield too. Cam has the LOOK of a pretty good RDE and Minnifield is feisty and fearless like his dad. The few times that Dowling was healthy, I think Minninfield was clearly better. I think Vic Hall really go screwed, if he had been able to stay at CB I think he could've had a future in the NFL there. I'd like to see Conrath get back on track, I thought he was going to be BMOC but he really underperformed as a 3-tech and LDE this past season. I definitely see him more as a LDE type.

I am a big fan of Rutland and believe he can make an NFL roster if given the opportunity. The Missouri defense played very well this year and Rutland was a big reason why. Barnes is solid in the pivot and projects as a latter round selection IMO. Might go a little earlier due to the lack of depth in this draft.

i was traveling today and now that i've gotten somewhere, they don't have the channel. I wish I had TiVo so I could have TiVo'd it at home. Anyone have a link to the box score or anything? I can't even seem to find out.

For those watching, how do Portis and Potts look?

I only saw about a third of the game but, from what I saw, Potts floats the ball a lot. Portis looked really good. Overthrew one guy, but looked solid, including the great throw I mentioned.

This was a painful game to watch. The QBs are just dreadful. Portis looked the best and that's not saying much. Yates and Colburn looked absolutely horrible. Ellis looks like a good player but that's obvious. I guess it was less boring than the Eastham Energy game.

Byron Maxwell(Scott's 40th ranked CB) had a good game both in coverage and tackling. Also, the announcers said he was arguably the fastest player on either side

Kendrick Ellis has an amazing motor. He was sideline to sideline and was a real beast to block on several plays where he blew up the OG and disrupted or made the play. I read on the stats line that he AVERAGED something like 9.4 tackles a game... FROM HIS DT SPOT! I don't care what division Hampton is in, at 6'5 335, that is incredible!

On one note, this game could have been SOOOOOOO much better. Jerry Glanville proved without any doubt why he is not coaching anywhere in America (didn't he get fired from Portland St.?).

I can't recall off the top of my head for sure, but I don't recall seeing the QB get up under OC... and then with the Nation trailing by a mere 6 points and inside the Texas 10 yard line and time under 2:00... not ONE TIME did Glanville go with more than one TE and he still didn't line the QB under OC... he kept his offense in the pistol which was idiotic.

To nobody's surprise, the Nation could not get the ball in the endzone as the Texas DEs too easily turned the short corner and blew up plays in the backfield.... JUST AWFUL.

Glanville didn't do these guys any favors by showing scouts what they could do in a pro style offense nor did he do them any favors when he refused to put them in the best possible positions to win the game.

The two times he ran his 257 lb RB that had 14 TDs for UVa, he ran him from read options which had him moving laterally instead of running him north-south in the I. Then when the Nation is at 3rd and 4th and goal from the one... that same 257 lb bruiser was not in the game (Keith Payne).

Jerry Glanville should be barred from all football fields.

It's an All-Star game. Who cares about the game plan. The primary purpose is for scouts to see players.

And that's exactly what I'm talking about. Glanville had his guys in the pistol or spread amost the entire time so his OL didn't get to show their run blocking skills, their RBs didn't get to show their power running skills, the QBs couldn't execute drops from under OC or playaction, and the LBs never had to take on a FB, they rarely had to read a pulling OG, the DL never had to play at the point against the run....


...my point is that the scouts couldn't see the players doing they most want to see them do. Do you not see something wrong with that? I don't care if Glanville is a terrible coach still, I care that nobody got to see the players being able to show off all of their skills and instead having to settle on one half.

I expect DJK to be a laaaaaaate 7th round pick. Possibly Mr. Irrelevant. He has obvious talent..I was surprised by his physique. Looks the part of an NFL WR for sure, but he's just too much of a character risk to take any earlier. Nowadays no picks are "throwaways". Your UDFA's will come in and contribute.

I noticed on my guide that the obscure CBS channel that aired it is re-airing it a lot over the week. Crappy QB play...Idk how many fumbled snaps there were. The only RB that stood out for me is Damien Berry. Fannin had a couple good runs but you can tell he's just another guy. No explosion or real speed. Good WR and defensive play though. Its worth a watch. Kenrick Ellis was a beast.

So I heard Denarius Moore looked like a beast.....

:)

He did indeed.

If there is any one player with desean jackson or mike wallace potential in the draft then it's moore. If the Qb's were more accurate and had better arm strength to put the ball in front of him he might have ended up with over 100 yards.

i can see this kid puting up something like 800 yards as a rookie if he goes to a team with a strong armed passer.

Kendrick Ellis has an amazing motor. He was sideline to sideline and was a real beast to block on several plays where he blew up the OG and disrupted or made the play. I read on the stats line that he AVERAGED something like 9.4 tackles a game... FROM HIS DT SPOT! I don't care what division Hampton is in, at 6'5 335, that is incredible!

yeah, he had 94 tackles last year.

I watched the game and if you ask me, he was even more impressive than phil taylor was at the senior bowl. This guy is my 4-3 #1 NT now.

I think that fannin may only be just average running the ball, but he is really something to watch on screens and as a receiver out of the backfield. He took a screen like 40 yards and finished the game with 2 receptions for 78 yards.

The kid is a dangerous receiver.

My guess is somewhere in 5th round.

His twitter has work-out updates: 25 reps at 225, and a 4.42 is the latest.

As a Hawk fan, I was really hoping he'd blow up the combine and make some waves for my alumni. After the whole drug charges and whatnot, it was needless to say I was thoroughly disappointed.

He's a helluva receiver, and always did a good job of beating his man. He was also a physical receiver as well. Too bad he totally blew his shot at a high round spot.
