3 O-linemen is a lot in one draft. Must be getting rid of somebody in camp. Anyone else think Wade Smith might get dropped?

I'm thinking Studdard and Caldwell.

Mondek was officially sized at 6'5.5" and 305 pounds. He bench pressed the 225 pounds an impressive 30 times and ran the 20 yard shuttle and 3 cone drill at times of 4.55 and 7.30 respectively. All of those numbers--in case you weren't aware--compared incredibly with the NFL Rookie Combine numbers of David DeCastro, the Guard from Stanford who is expected to go First Round this weekend. But possibly the most impressive of all of Nick's recorded drills at the Pro Day was the 40 Yard Dash time he clocked--4.84. For a 300 pounds lineman, 4.84 is hauling it!

Ht: 6-5 3/4 | Wt: 304 | Sp: 4.86 | Arm: 33 3/8 | Hand: 9 1/4
225 lb. bench press reps : 30

http://www.profootballweekly.com/201...emen-to-groom/
Notes: Prepped in Illinois and was recruited as a defensive lineman, redshirting in 2007. Appeared in all 12 games in '08 (wore jersey No. 99) and recorded seven tackles without a tackle for loss or sack. Played 11 games in '09, tallying 8-3-2. Did not play against Michigan State (leg). Converted to right tackle and started all 12 games in '10. Started all 12 games at right guard in '11.
Bottom line: Big-framed, well-proportioned, converted defensive tackle and terrific foot athlete — ran the 40-yard dash in the high 4.8s at 300 pounds, including an unheard of 1.59-second 10-yard split, and recorded elite times in the short shuttle (4.55 seconds) and 3-cone drill (7.3 seconds). Has good feet and stature to position, lean and seal. Explosive pulling and leading through the hole. Is relatively raw — has only two seasons at guard under his belt and is not instinctive or anticipatory. Power and violence elements are lacking and he needs to get stronger in order to improve his ability to sustain and finish. Will require patience, but is draftable late based on size and workout numbers and has clear developmental value.
NFL projection: Sixth- to seventh-round pick.

Didn't play any TE? That surprises me.

One of the backups.

He's a converted defensive lineman. I'm still looking. There isn't much. LOL

Re: 6th Round Pick: Nick Mondek, OT, Purdue
 
I have no idea. A quick search shows that he is new to playing OLine, having switched from DT. Solid athleticism, fits Texans MO.

I think he gets put on the PS, but I could be wrong.

Sounds athletic. Thanks for the scouting reports guys.

Re: 6th Round Pick: Nick Mondek, OT, Purdue
 
4.8 for a 300+ guy is crazy fast. Could be a good receiver eligible tackle in goal line packages..

Started all 12 games and played nearly every snap ... helped anchor an offensive line that blocked for a school-record tying five consecutive games with 200 or more yards rushing ... moved from defensive tackle from offensive tackle during spring practice.

No finding much.

We have our new blocking TE.

1.59 10 yard split, that is better than a lot of rush linebackers. Don't know squat about him but his numbers are off the charts. Who is this guy???

Part 3 of the 2012 NFL Draft Profiles brings me to the next former Boiler Gridiron player with draft hopes for this weekend: Nick Mondek.

Mondek, a solid starting Offensive Lineman for the Boilermakers over the past two seasons, may be another draftee like Dennis Kelly who was expected to be a late round pick but is quickly moving up draft boards. But it hasn't always been such an easy road for big Number 62. The guy has faced a lot of adversity during his time at Purdue, but he has managed to always persevere and come out of those situations stronger.

Nick actually began his college career as a Defensive Tackle for Purdue. In his Redshirt Freshman and Sophomore seasons of 2008 and 2009, Mondek served as a reserve on the D-Line, yet managed to still appear in all of Purdue's games where he racked up 15 tackles and 2 sacks between both campaigns.

Then, before the start of his Junior year in 2010, Purdue personnel made the decision to move Nick to the O-Line, where they felt his talents could be better utilized in the future. Taking the position change in stride, Number 62 certainly used the opportunity to shine. During that season, Mondek appeared and started in all 12 games at Right Tackle and played nearly every snap for the Boilermakers' offense. It seemed that the rewards for all of his hard work and subsequent success were just around the corner.

But then during the Spring of 2011, once again Nick was moved to a new position--this time to Guard on the O-Line. Just as in 2010, many were concerned with how Mondek would handle another position move during his Senior campaign. And again he managed to impress. Last season, Number 62 started in all 13 games at Guard--including Purdue's bowl win--while filling a new role and helping to solidify the O-Line.

It seemed that whatever this guy does on the football field, he can't be stopped from reaping success. However, not everyone seems to see it that way.



The Man Who Waited For His Black & Gold Opportunities

Following his Senior campaign with the Boilermakers, many NFL scouts and Draft analysts were very skeptical about many of Mondek's attributes. They said he might be too slow, too small and too weak.

Many people also looked down on his position changes. And who could blame them? In the past three seasons, Nick has played three different positions for Purdue. Unfortunately, NFL personnel chose not to see Mondek as a versatile athlete, but instead as a guy who didn't have significant time to learn any of the positions that he played.

But then came the 2012 Purdue Pro Day. Like Dennis Kelly, Nick excelled and managed to greatly improve his draft hopes. The measurables he posted on March 9th in Mollenkopf were simply staggering.

Mondek was officially sized at 6'5.5" and 305 pounds. He bench pressed the 225 pounds an impressive 30 times and ran the 20 yard shuttle and 3 cone drill at times of 4.55 and 7.30 respectively. All of those numbers--in case you weren't aware--compared incredibly with the NFL Rookie Combine numbers of David DeCastro, the Guard from Stanford who is expected to go First Round this weekend. But possibly the most impressive of all of Nick's recorded drills at the Pro Day was the 40 Yard Dash time he clocked--4.84. For a 300 pounds lineman, 4.84 is hauling it!
