Texas Homerís Texas 2012 potential draft prospects

Just my opinion fellas...

Kheeston Randall
(Sr.) DT Listed at 6'5 305

Legit Size. Can move. Plus athleticism.

Sr. season-- 5 TFL, 1 Sack

Jr. season-- 13 TFL, 2 Sacks and 2 Blocked kicks

Soph.-- 2 Sacks

Kheeston doesn't have Suh's college numbers, but Kheeston is tall, big, and has plus athleticism.

Texas Homer's Draft Guess: 3rd Round

Emmanuel Acho

(Sr.) LB Listed at 6'2 245

Very nice burst and plus athleticism. Nice speed and not small. Smart player...

Sr.--131 tackles(65 solo), 19 TFL, 3 Sacks, and 1 FF

Jr.-- 87 tackles (49 solo), Three Sacks, 12 TFL, Two Forced Fumbles, One Fumble recovery, One INT(He housed it for 6)

Soph.--49 tackles (36 solo), 10 TFL, Two Sacks, Three Forced Fumbles, Two Fumble Recoveries, an INT

Emmanuel is quick to the ball and is tough. I think that Emmanuel can play either OLB or ILB in the NFL, but my guess would be that he will end up playing ILB. He isn't the tallest LB'er, but he isn't small. He is very athletic and flys to the ball(Closes Quick).

Texas Homer's Draft Guess: 3rd Round

Keenan Robinson

(Sr.) LB Listed size 6'3 240

Plus size. Hits hard. Still can get bigger in my opinion...

Sr.--106 tackles(53 solo), 1 Sack, 10 TFL, and 2 FF

Jr.-- 113 tackles (61 solo), along with eight TFL, Two Sacks, Two INTs, Two Fumble Recoveries, One Forced Fumble. 1 TD.

Soph.-- 74 tackles (42 solo), 1.5 Sacks, and Five TFL

(R)Freshman--24 tackles (16 solo), Two TFL, a Sack

I think that Keenan will play OLB in the NFL.

Texas Homer's Draft Guess: 3rd Round

Blake Gideon

Sr. Safety Listed at 6'1 205

4 year starter

Sr.--82 tackles (48 solo), 2 INTs, 1 Sack, 2 TFL, and 1 Fumble Recovery

Jr.--68 tackles (42 solo), two INTs, four PBU, one sack, three TFL, one forced fumble and one blocked punt

Soph.--62 tackles (35 solo), two TFL, six INTs, five PBU and a fumble recovery

Freshman--64 tackles (41 solo) to go along with seven PBU, eight pressures, a TFL and a forced fumble

Texas Homer's Draft Guess: 7th round

Sr. RB/FB Cody Johnson...Listed at 5'11 252

Big RB that bulldozed at FB his Sr. season. I don't know if Fullbacks get drafted, but I think that Cody is going to be a bulldozer at FB for an NFL team.

Cody had 36 TDs for TEXAS.

David Snow

(Sr.) OG/Center Listed at 6'4 305

I don't know if David will get drafted, but I think that he will get picked up UDFA if he doesn't get drafted.

Fozzy Whittaker

(Sr.) RB listed at 5'10 202

Fast. Not a big back, but is well built. Fast. Talented Kick Returner.
I'd guess that Fozzy would have gotten drafted had he not gone down with a season ending injury at almost midseason his Sr. year. I have no idea if he gets drafted, but if he gets back to 100% then I DEFINITELY think that he will be on an NFL roster.

I like Whittaker a lot, I think he'll impress a team as an UDFA in training camp and stick somewhere.

01-14-2012, 10:20 AM
Yeah, Whittaker is going to be a UDFA that makes an NFL roster. He's not really stand out in any area, but I think he can do a little bit of everything. Looks like a 3rd down back that is going to be able to get you yards in the draw game, going to be a factor in the passing game (3rd down or otherwise). Despite his size, he looks like a pretty good pass protector. He'll also be able to contibute on all phases of special teams. He'll be a capable returner (not a game breaker), a blocker for an elite returner, and I think he can play punt coverage as an up man in a punt formation. Very smart with a high football IQ.

Could Keenan or Manny play MLB in a 34?

I think that's Acho's best spot. Robinson, I guess could play inside in the 3-4 also, but I think he would be best suited as an OLB in a 4-3 where he can really use his + range to make plays all over the field.

100% agree with rawdawg on this.

Just to add a little post-Shrine/Sr. Bowl thoughts on some guys...

I think that Keenan Robinson's draft stock is climbing some. I thought that he was lining up in some odd stance/positions at OLB in the Sr. bowl, but I think that he played solid overall and I think that his draft stock is going up. I thought that he looked a little bigger too, little more jacked at the Sr. Bowl.

I'd guess Keenan Robinson's draft stock is in the 2nd-3rd round range right now.

Emmanuel Acho- I watched him switch to MLB for the Senior bowl and I suspect that he will be an ILB in the pros. I thought that he looked like he maybe put on a little more positive body weight. That might help him handle MLB a little better. As for his play in the Sr. bowl...I thought that he put himself in the right position and places that you would like your MLB to be during a play, but I also saw him miss a few tackles, and other stuff. I'm not down on him, but I think that he will need more work/reps at MLB.

My guess on Acho right now on his draft stock would be around 3rd-5th.

I think that the athleticism is there with Acho. I think that he has a lot of room to improve too.Really smart young man from what I've heard. We will see. I am rooting for him.

Kheeston Randall-I'm still guessing 3rd round for him. I did think that he showed some nice push at times in the Sr. bowl.

I do think that Guard/Center David Snow played his way into getting drafted maybe in the later rounds from his play in the Shrine game.
