I think he is just naturally thin. He looks like a basketball player to me. He is an incredible athlete. I know he is pretty tall, but he has excellent body control. I think he would make a great rush LB in a 34. Obviously, he can also play end in a 43.

The skinny leg question made me wonder what a speed rusher like Freeney was built like. He seems more solid than Quinn for sure.

Quality NFL caliber CB, very physical & solid in run support.
http://sidelinescouting.com/rankings...mukamara.shtml
9. J.J. Watt, DE/DT, Wisconsin - 6'6 - 290
Maybe the top 3-4 DE in the draft, this underclassman has it all.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QT2-mRCgX0
10. Julio Jones, WR, Alabama - 6'4 - 220
Not the body or range of AJ Green but very smart football player & possession receiver.
http://dc.sbnation.com/washington-re...jones-redskins
11. Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State - 6'1 - 311
Under rated on most boards but not this one. Excels at point of contact, bull strong & quick requiring double teams often.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_Ftc...eature=related
12. Von Miller, DE, Texas A&M - 6'3 - 243
Projects to 3-4 OLB position. Good instinct & cat quick reflexes.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnZSceCN5Yg
13. Nate Solder, OT, Colorado - 6'9 - 315
Anyone who's seen him play knows he stands out on the field not only 6'9" has huge wingspan & surprising footwork to keep would be pass rushers off QB.
http://detroit.sbnation.com/detroit-...-detroit-lions
14. Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa - 6'4 - 285
Yes his stock has dropped a bit, double teamed most every-time, but still relentless, lots of heart.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5R8sdH0tyI
15. Akeem Ayers, LB, UCLA - 6'4 - 255
UCLA was so inconsistent its hard to rate their players but Akeem was all over the field, kinda reminded me of last years 8th pick in the draft Rolando McClain.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q14Px6MLRfk
16. Jake Locker, QB, Washington - 6'3 - 230
Looks the part, solid build, strong arm will need to show he can execute NFL playbook.

17. Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama - 5'10 - 215
Franchise back for a team who needs immediate running game.

18. Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue - 6'4 - 263
Relentless 4-3 DE with good moves & sound technique.

Most athletic tackle in class, who fits the ZBS.
http://www.mockingthedraft.com/2010/...couting-report

Finished the regular season as the SEC sacks leader, that says it all.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kR0L2RVId90
21. Cameron Newton, QB, Auburn - 6'6 - 250
Mobile, superior athlete who relishes leadership role for his team.
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/5...in-2011#page/1
22. Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas - 6'6 - 238
Reckless with the ball at times, gunslinger mentality, no questions about his arm strength.
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/5...g-board#page/2
23. Anthony Costanzo – OT, Boston College - 6'7 - 308
Sound technique but plays physical, can play LT or RT.
http://www.ncaagridirongab.com/2010/...hony-costanzo/
24. Brandon Harris, CB, Miami - 5'11 - 195
I'm unsure if his slide down is warranted or not? He still has plenty of time to impress scouts & move back into the Top 20.
http://www.fftoolbox.com/nfl_draft/p...ospect_id=2730
25. Cameron Heyward, DE/DT, Ohio State - 6'5 - 288
Versatile, above-average strength, size, athleticism suggest he could fill in a 3-4 DE.
http://www.fftoolbox.com/nfl_draft/p...ospect_id=2383
26. Aldon Smith, DE/OLB Missouri - 6'5 - 260
Should be attractive to both 3-4 or 4-3 teams, this could propel him higher leading up to the draft.
http://www.columbiatribune.com/news/...the-bag-often/
27. Mike Pouncey – OG, Florida - 6'4 - 310
Not as highly touted as his brother Maurkice, he is cut from the same mold, hence his draft stock is elevated.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=st4cMpEEA30
28. Drake Nevis – DT, LSU - 6'1 - 285
Very disruptive, interior lineman. premium defensive position in NFL.
http://www.nola.com/lsu/index.ssf/20...od_player.html
29. Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State - 6'5 - 305
Highest ranked Senior LT. Great feet & long arms, will need to play stronger/more consistent.
http://www.mockingthedraft.com/2010/...couting-report
30. Cameron Jordan - DE, California - 6'4 - 285
Athletic 4-3 LDE or possibly a 3-4 DE. Dynamic play maker if left one on one.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzIVTNoQHHA
31. Mikel LeShoure, Illinois, (Jr.), - 6'0 - 230
Devastating combination of size & strength. somehow I had dropped him off prospect list, but trust me he is going to be sensational in the NFL. BL pick.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpGGOe0D_go
32. Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois - 6'3 - 295
Unblock able in single match-ups. Good core strength, explosive burst off line.

Default Re: Big Board Thread

It will be interesting to see how the big Mock Drafts mirror our Big Board we began in December. Even Mel admits teams bypass BPA over need, hence his first official Mock - http://bleacherreport.com/articles/5...-critique?vm=r compared with picks from Bleacher senior writer John Lorge.

I'm very positive many of our picks will move up these so called experts mock drafts in the coming months.

Once again great job everybody

Did anyone see or hear about Noel Devine (RB - WVU). Apparently, he weighed in at about 160-lbs after being listed as 180-lbs at WVU. Dude is fast but he needs to bulk up if he wants to play in the NFL.

Walter had a rough comment about him on his site:

Quote:
When they show those Christian Children's Fund commercials with the weird old creeper, is Noel Devine one of the kids? Why is he only 160 pounds? Can someone please drive him to a McDonald's? His 8-and-a-half inch hands aren't helping him either.

California WR DeSean Jackson measured in at a disappointing 5-foot-9, 167 pounds in his combine while Jackson was listed at 6-foot, 170-pounds at Cal. So it's not the first time this has happened & by the way DeSean has done alright for himself in Philadelphia, really well when Vick is the QB.

Watching wvu all my life i love noel but i will say that the best he is going to be in the nfl is a sproles type player. 5-7 160/170 pounds runs a 4.3ish but the man is strong. Has maxed out at about 405 and can squat a lot. Watch some film on him and you can tell he has some strength he just nees to stay healthy. That was his demise his senior year. Could be a dynamic returner and a change of pace back as well as a 3rd down back.

He also developed a tendency to go for the big play in his junior season. It was really bad in his senior season. He was trying to bounce everything to the outside. Devine was much better in his earlier years at WVU.

Weights that jump out at me:

LB Von Miller 6' 2 5/8" 237 lbs. 237 pounds? He looks it too.

LB Nate Irving 6' 1 1/4" 242 lbs. 3rd round ILB prospect? I like the way he plays. He's a bit small for the position but so was Lawrence Timmons when he was drafted. He's good in coverage and on the blitz.

LB Greg Jones 5' 11 7/8" 240 lbs. Great player but a little short. Reminds me of Buster Davis but not quite as short.

DE Jeremy Beal 6' 2 3/8" 268 lbs. Could he play OLB in the 3-4? He was an athletic end at Oklahoma.

DE Kyan Kerrigan 6' 3 7/8" 255 lbs. I expected him to be in the 260s but maybe he is trying to slim down? It will be interesting to see how he tests.

WR Leonard Hankerson 10 5/8" hands. Biggest of any player not a lineman. No wonder he caught so many TDs for Miami this past year. Maybe we can grab him in the later rounds and have Andre go to work with him.

S DeAndre McDaniel 6' 3/8" 213 lbs. Good size for FS or SS. We'll see how he tests.

S Ahmad Black 5' 9 3/8" 183 lbs. Hmm. I knew he was about 5'9 but 183 pounds is questionable for a safety.

I heard him on the radio this morning talking to LZ. He said he preferred to play at 260-265. But he had dropped down to about 250, and was now putting the weight back on. He said he is trending upward.

S DeAndre McDaniel 6' 3/8" 213 lbs. Good size for FS or SS. We'll see how he tests.

S Ahmad Black 5' 9 3/8" 183 lbs. Hmm. I knew he was about 5'9 but 183 pounds is questionable for a safety.

I didn't realize Greg Jones was 5'11". I always thought he was 6'1" but I guess those are inflated numbers. It amazes me that even though he has been productive in college, he is being overlooked by many people outside of MSU fans.

Could he play in a 3-4 scheme? Love to have a productive player like him on our squad.

Scott Wright evaluated players based on how they looked during the weigh-in. Good things said about Phily Taylor and Stephen Paea (some comments are downright nasty IMO )

For me it was the guy drooling like a teenage girl. "Oooh, he has a 6 pack! Sexy!"

By the way, not jealous. Had a six pack a little while ago, hated not being able to eat.

Just curious as to where you all have Jimmy Smith CB from Colorado.

I heard today that he is moving to the top of some peoples boards as the best CB in the draft. I really like what I have read about him but haven't seen much tape.
