  • More Mayock on RG3's attitude: "He has a natural, charismatic personality. Wide receivers are already lining up wanting to play with him."
  • Mayock on story about RG3's attitude: "I did not see that report and I have not seen any red flags." Spent time w/ RG3 at Combine & Pro Day.

  • Mayock also praised #Furman CB Ryan Steed. Said he likes Steed's physicality & competitiveness. Projects 5th round for Steed.
  • Mayock on #UNC DE Quinton Coples: "He could be an All Pro. But he's got bust potential written all over him."
  • Mayock on #SouthCarolina CB Stephon Gilmore: "I'm a big fan. He's a top 10 or 12 player in this draft. Definitely top half of the 1st rd."
  • Mayock on Orson Charles: "Very narrow, small frame. Looks like a WR and he's not gonna get much bigger." Projects late 3rd, maybe lower.
  • Mayock on #Alabama NT Josh Chapman: "I'm not sure when he's gonna be available (health wise), but teams really like Chapman."
  • Mayock on #Alabama SS Mark Barron: "Barron is one of the best players in this draft, and I think he's gonna go between 10 & 15."
  • Mayock on Brian Quick: "Ht-wt-speed guy. Not sure we're gonna see any production out of him. I think he's gonna be a little overwhelmed."
  • Mayock on Stephen Hill: "I would not be surprised at all if he goes 20-32. There's so much upside in a kid like that outside the numbers."
  • Mayock on Luke Kuechly: "One of the 10 best players in this draft ... Best pass-dropping inside 'backer I've ever seen come out of college."
  • Mayock says he'd "bang the table" for Shea McClellin. "He's gonna go in the 1st." McClellin has been @NFLDraftXpert's boy for a long time.
  • RT @vincelamartina Ravens won't let Burfict go undrafted. Great locker room ... Last time I checked, Ravens don't draft terrible FB players.
  • In reply to Vince Lamartina
  • Maybe cliche by now, but Mayock praised #Ravens for "staying true to their board." That's something #Rams didn't do under Devaney.
  • Mayock on #NotreDame WR Michael Floyd: "Big physical guy. Natural hands catcher. Maybe the best blocker at receiver in this draft."
  • RT @JJGUAR mayock mayock mayock mayock mayock mayock. I have another word for you today. UNFOLLOW ... I gave fair warning. Deuces.
  • In reply to JG
  • More Mayock on #ArizonaState LB Vontaze Burfict: "Non-draftable kid. For me, he's a free agent."
  • Mayock on Vontaze Burfict: "I put his tape on with zero preconceived notions. I watched 3 tapes and really didn't like him as a FB player."
  • Mayock on Ryan Broyles: "Possession receiver, tough as nails. ... Amazing recovery from an ACL." Projects late 3rd to 4th-round pick.
  • Mayock on #Jaguars at No. 7 overall: "Obviously, if Justin Blackmon gets there, that's a no-brainer."
  • Mayock called Zach Brown a "height weight speed guy" who will be overdrafted. Questions Brown's physicality. 3rd-rd grade from Mayock.
  • Mayock on #UNC LB Zach Brown: "Anytime anybody gets on him, his feet stop. He's a run-and-chase LB who's gonna get enveloped."
  • Mayock on #WestVirginia CB Keith Tandy: "He's been kind of a late riser. Pretty solid corner. I've got him right now mid to late 4th rd."
  • Mayock predicts #PennState DT Devon Still will be an early 2nd-round pick. Acknowledges Still often appears in 1st-round mock drafts.
  • Mayock on #Memphis DT Dontari Poe: "Moves like Haloti Ngata, but he's a very average football player right now."
  • Mayock on #BoiseState LB Shea McClellin. "A guy that's risen a lot lately. I think he's gonna be a 10-yr starter." Compares to Mike Vrabel.
  • Mayock on #Cincinnati DL Derek Wolfe: "I've heard ppl say 1st round. I don't see it. I see maybe late 2 to early 3."
  • Mayock on #NorthAlabama CB Janoris Jenkins: "The Jenkins kid is scaring a lot of people off."
  • Mayock on #SouthCarolina WR Alshon Jeffery: "Not as fast. I worry about what his weight's gonna be. Gifted kid that doesn't run very fast."
  • Mayock on #Vikings at the No. 3 pick: "I believe Kalil is the choice. And if he's not, it's gotta be Claiborne."
  • Mayock on #Stanford WR Chris Owusu: "I think it's gonna be very difficult for him to be drafted" based on concussion history.
  • Mayock on #Cal WR Marvin Jones: "I think he's a real solid football player. I would say he's gonna fit into 3rd round. Slow, steady rise."
  • More Mayock on #Browns at 4: "I don't think those receivers should be in this conversation. ... I think Richardson's the guy at 4."
  • Mayock on #Browns at 4: "If you're not gonna take a quarterback, I think you have to take Trent Richardson."
  • Mayock says RG3 "has a better chance to succeed, day one" than Luck because of #Redskins superior supporting cast. Much better D, WRs.
  • Mayock also noted that 15 of the last 23 quarterbacks drafted in the 1st round have become starters.
  • Per Mayock's stats, only 7 of the last 82 quarterbacks drafted in rounds 2-7 have become NFL starters.
  • Mayock says DE Olivier Vernon is "rising the fastest" of all #Miami Hurricane prospects. Predicts Vernon will be drafted in 2nd or 3rd rd.
