The guys you seem to like more than anyone else does.

Derrick Locke, RB - Kentucky

I've seen him as low as the 50th running back in some people's rankings for this year, and that tells me they simply never saw him play. I just compared him to Warrick Dunn in the "sleeper running backs" thread, and I'm sticking with that. "Poor man's" Warrick Dunn for now, but even that warrants a ranking much higher than 50th. I know Scott's got him higher than that, but he knows what he's doing. I'm just throwing the "50th" out there because I've seen people put him in that range more than once, and he's at least a mid-round pick. I like him better than I liked Dexter McCluster last year.

Lance Kendricks, TE - Wisconsin

Lance Kendricks keeps getting mentioned as an afterthought. "Don't forget about Lance Kendricks..." people say. Damn right. The guy is going to be a Dustin Keller-type player, except that he's a good blocker. Faster, bigger and a better blocker than Aaron Hernandez, he didn't get the same hype because he played on a bruiser running team from Wisconsin and Tim Tebow wasn't throwing to him. He's going to be an NFL starter, and is worth taking in the second round.

*edit* Scott compares him to Dustin Keller in his scouting report, too. I just looked at it.

MASON FOSTER!

This is our (boe and I) guy. I've had the pleasure of watching this guy play numerous times and have come away impressed every time. He plays with a ton of energy, he flies all over the field making play. He's a very well rounded prospect who doesn't have a glaring weakness in his game. He is going to make some team very very happy and is going to be a very solid LB for whoever drafts him.

Darvin Adams, WR - Auburn

Catches the ball well with his hands, has great body control and good length. Doesn't necessarily had great timed speed, but is a deep threat who can track the ball over his shoulder and make the big catch down the field. Much of the time when Cam Newton made a great throw, it was Darvin Adams making a great catch. And he gets so little attention I even forgot to mention him in my original post. I knew I was forgetting someone...

But yeah, I tried to make a thread about him earlier and it totally died. I see him being a productive NFL player. I'd be willing to spend a third on him, maybe even a second depending on how his combine goes, except that this is an unusually deep WR class and that's going to affect his value.

Can I ask you why you like Taiwan Jones? A lot of people do, but I just see a skinny running back who avoids contact, and looks faster because the players he's up against are slow. Are you still going to like him if he shows up at the combine 6'0" 185 and runs a 4.50? 'Cause frankly, he seems like a guy people like because they expect him to prove his speed, and I'm just not too sure about that. Couple that with his lack of size, and I just don't see what people are all excited about. It's like the recent success of Danny Woodhead has everyone thinking that the smalls schools are going to produce SOMEBODY who's good, and this year there's a large group of people who are utterly convinced it's Taiwan Jones.

My take is that it depends on what you expect him to be. If you expect him to be an every down back you will probably be disappointed, but I like him for the Packers because I think he could be used in a lot of different ways. Initially would start out as a PR/KR (huge need), then as he gets coached up he could become a third-down back / 4th-5th WR. I think if he could make an already dangerous offense even more scary by creating mismatches with safeties and linebackers.

Really doesn't have much to do with the school or level of competition for me, I just really like the way he runs. I think he looks much faster than 4.5 on tape and would expect him to run lower than that. I don't like him as a starter at the next level, but you really don't need to be as a RB in the NFL at this point to be able to make an impact. Put him in space and let him make people miss and he'll make some plays for you. Very good and making moves and finding open filed. The thing I like the most about him though is that despite the obvious wiggle he really isn't much of a dancer. Very decisive runner. His legs do look skinny, but he's got a good frame to add some weight over the next few years to help him take some hits.

Obviously there's no sure fire way to predict that he'll be successful, but I like his upside better than I do some of the other 4th round backs.

Most places I've seen list him at 6-1 200. I could mention another guy that is about the same size and went a whole lot higher, but I don't want to be accused of comparing them. I guess we'll see. Also another site claims he competed in track against Jahvid Best. Best ran an official 4.35 at the combine.

Cameron Heyward - Best 3-4 DE prospect in a long time IMO. Very underrated right now.

Lawrence Guy/Jerell Powe - Have measurements, tape, learning disabilities.

Lawrence Marsh - Vince Oghobaase all over again...should have been a top prospect bu fell apart to injuries.

Kenrick Ellis - Monster and his hype is coming.

Juilo Jones - The Andre Johnson to Green's Rodgers (hopefully w/o the injuries and weed so the what could have been version).

Blaine Gabbert - Was until all this hype came...I was hoping he'd fall to the third for future payoff in my master plan for the Jets to destroy the NFL (he'd be Matt Schuab'd or he'd Wally Pip the Sanchez)...top 10 my balls...Chris Ponder is now the sleeper QB.

Akeem Ayers - I think he could play LB (mostly ILB) in a 3-4, but yeah...no one buys that yet possibly ever.

Christian Ballard - > Adrian Claybon.

Brooks Reed/Jabaarl Sheard - One of these guys will have a very good rookie season, and the other will have a very good sophomore season. Possibly they will go on to have very good careers.

Dwayne Harris - ECU WR.

Weslye Saunders/Robert Quinn/Bruce Carter/Marvin Austin - Haters gonna hate.

John Moffit/James Carpenter - Potentially very good LG prospects.

Etc.

Deunta Williams. Even with the injury, I think he'll have a dominant role in the NFL. He's a willing tackler with ball hawk skills that can play any role in a 4-3 or a FS in a 3-4. His talent warrents a first round draft status. Even top 20. But the injury will drop him.

K.J. Wright. Extremely athletic linebacker. I think he'd be perfect for a strongside inside linebacker in a 3-4. Willing to stop the run, has the athleticism to drop back and cover. Very instinctive. Probably 2nd to 3rd round pick. May even slip into the 4th considering how many underclassmen have declared.

We'll have to find out what comp picks are given out before we can really give then a proper round grade. Without that, its not worth even speculating where they'll be drafted. Especially not before the combine.

Mr.Regular
02-03-2011, 11:50 PM
Hmmm I'll narrow it down to one on each side of the ball.

Offense: Jacquizz Rodgers. He may be small, but he's built well. He has excellent lower body strength. Elusive in space, explosive, runs surprisingly hard up the middle. Really good speed. Is pretty good at catching the ball. Didn't have the best season, but he's being underrated big time IMO. I think he'll make an impact.

Defense: Drake Nevis. Stud. Every time I watched LSU, Nevis popped out on the screen more than any other player. Put him in as a penetrating UT, and he should dominate. Didn't get nearly the amount of press he deserved this season.

Pros- Athletic, Good speed (probably will run in the 4.4 range), Decent height, amazing after the catch, outstanding body control, explosive leaper.

Cons- Disappeared at times (most of us Vols fans attribute this to shaky QB play throughout his career), some concentration issues and could probably stand to put on a little bulk (tiny frame).

Ben Ijalana

I know the comparisons are going to be made to Vlad DuCasse, because they both played in the CAA, but I think that is a very disingenuous parallel. To me, Ijalana is a left tackle at the next level. He has great feet, uses his hands VERY well, and although he is only 6'4", he has very long arms. I have seen him play against some of Nova's toughest competition (Montana, App St., Richmond) and he is like Orlando Pace at that level. Definiitely better than Solder and Castonzo IMO and maybe the best left tackle prospect in the draft.

Phil Taylor

I know he is rising rapidly, but I think he has to be in the first round, barring background checks revealing him as an axe murderer or something. Dominated the Senior Bowl and is better in every way than Dan Williams a year ago.

Austin Pettis

Smart, tough, versatile with an NFL body and remarkable body control. A more well-rounded prospect IMO than Titus Young and will make some WCO team very happy.

Chris Carter

I know he needs to put on a lot of weight, but he was simply too good a pass rusher at the college level not to find a way to be productive in the NFL. A potential 3-4 steal.

John Clay

Someone get him away from all the cheese, sausage and beer in Wisconsin, and you might have the beast that I thought was going to be a first round pick coming into the season.

Dane Sanzenbacher

Consumate overachiever. Knows the game as well as any receiver and never drops a ball thrown his way. This guy just screams "the next Mike Furrey" or dare I say, Wes Welker.

I never would have really thought about having a "pet prospect" but I guess I do have some.

QB Colin Kaepernick by default-who if nothing else will automatically assume the role of QB-Who's-Name-Is-Misspelled-Most-Frequently from Brett Favre (or Farve, depending on who is writing it).

TE Virgil Green-I must have a Nevada thing going here because I got another one coming up in a few. But this guy reminds me of K2, plays bigger than his size, runs well, and has those big ole' mitts for hands. He should be a good #2 TE for somebody down the road in a Jacob Tamme type role.

DE Ryan Kerrigan, DE Aldon Smith, DE Cameron Jordan, I pretty much have a ton of pet DEs considering how badly my team needs one... or two.


LB Nate Irving-if he's 100% healthy he could be a really good one.

LB Dontay Moch, the guy can fly, he plays bigger than he is, and at the very least he will be a special teams monster. He turns the corner, jacks guards into the backfield, he bullrushed Constanzo like a 295 5-tech (but after watching the North OTs at the Senior Bowl, that doesn't seem so impressive now).

LB Eric Gordon-almost as produtive as Greg Jones-but without the hype or the clippings.... But he was the only Spartan in the bowl game to actually make plays in the backfield (shoots gaps) or take on blocks and ball carriers head on. He also actually had pass drops in coverage while Jones stood at the LOS like a stiff.

S Ahmad Black-I'm thinking Bob Sanders without the elite speed, which is fine, as long as he runs fast enough to make the play and just slow enough to not destroy his body.

S Ras-I Dowling-only as a S.... I'm a big UVa fan (I would have said "huge" but I didn't want anybody to think I'm depressed) and I just don't have ANY love for Dowling at CB. Teams threw at him without fear throughout his career, perhaps they didn't read his press clippings... and he didn't make them pay. He can run, hit,and play the ball however, and I think a move to S is in his and his next team's best interest.

S/LB Dom DeCicco-his position is S, his position in the NFL if he wants to play is LB... he MIGHT move well enough to make up for his size shortcomings.

mark lagree s (what? it's not like no one has ever come out of appalachian state before, dexter coakley- thanks to my fellow rams fan jackpmiller for pointing out this "diamond in the rough" as rob rang has referred to him more than once)

dontay moch olb (don't know why but i took a liking to nevada early in the season and this guy jumped off the screen on me. don't know if he really runs a 4.2 as i've been assured on the tv and internet but i've really enjoyed watching him this year and think he will do very well as a 4-3 olb after a year or 2 in a system with the right coaching)

kendrick ellis dt (the name rings right. hopefully he's put down the pipe. someone on this board pointed him out for me, don't remember who but thank you. collapse the pocket, shoot the gap, the young man could be a monster with the right support)

delone carter rb (guy goes off. love his height-weight-speed. bowling ball. block, we all need that from an rb. catch, we like that too.)

i like the fringe guys, what can i say . . .

Davon House because I go to NMSU and have been to just about every single one of the home games since he has been a freshman.

For supposedly being able to run a 4.2, Dontay Moch is awfully sluggish off the snap. And doesn't try very hard to run players down once the play gets past him. He's going to get picked by the Raiders in the second round and sit on the bench for three years before finally getting released.

Although he did break up a deep pass intended for Austin Pettis in the Boise game, if I remember correctly. Maybe he should just play cornerback.

Ryan Mallett (i love him. top 5 talent, and i think he has a rivers-like mentality.)

Dane Sanzenbacher--Consistent, one of those guys that may not have much potential, but great work ethic

Titus Young--Good athlete. Clutch, lot of potential.

Jay Finley--Good average YPC against some solid Defenses, like A&M and TCU

A big fan of Ryan Mallett on the field, hope he doesnt turn out to be Ryan Leaf.

Not as big a fan of Titus Young as most in here, would rather his teammate Austin Pettis.

First Round
Julio Jones- If I'm the Bengals, I grab him at 4.
Cam Heyward- Most see him as a late first rounder. A team like Dallas or Washington might take him top-ten.

Second Round
DeMarco Murray- If not for injury concerns, I think he would be the top runningback available.

Third Round
Andy Dalton and Christian Ponder- One of these two guys will be picked by the Jaguars, maybe even in the second round.

Fourth Round
Jah Reid- Maybe it's because I watch a bunch of UCF games, but I really like what I see from him.

Fifth Round
Dane Sanzenbacher- He isn't flashy, he isn't big, but he will have a long, productive career in the NFL.

I'm sorry to hear that. I lived in Las Cruces for nearly 6 months and my wife was raised there (along with her entire family still living there). That is one program that just seems hopeless.

I actually applied for a position with the NMSU coaching staff back in 2002 or so... when that former OL coach from Nebraska was there, I can't remember his name. I didn't even get a call back, that was probably a blessing.

I guess I'd have to say it is Gabe Carimi, I seem to be a fair bit higher on him than most and would absolutely love him on the Vikings. That said I'd take just about anything over McKinnie at this point.

I'm also a big fan of the artist formerly known as Prince!

I like that order Hines, I saw alot of Harris and Irving and I love Carimi. Only guy who gets a little too much hype to me is Pouncey but he will be ok.

Evan Royster I think will be a decent steal in the draft.

Owen Marecic, FB Stanford.

I only wish that fullbacks were more valuable because teams would be all over this guy. Tough, smart, and is a overall good human. He is never going to have off the field issues, he is going to be able to handle any info you throw at him, and he will will hit you in the mouth.

I think Sam Acho could be creeping up into territory pretty close to the second round. He's been rising steadily for awhile now.

I'm partial to Jimmy Smith, Cam Jordan, Mark Herzlich and Stephen Paea myself.

Andy Dalton, who I truly believe is by far the best Quarterback in this draft.
