    outside of landry or nelson that we could pick up in the 3rd-7th?

    michael johnson 6'2 205lbs from arizona
    strong work ethic. nose for the ball and has good instincts. can make plays and supports the run well with his size and tackling technique/skills. only questions are his experience and his timed speed (4.55-4.6). reminds me of demeco ryans with his instincts and work ethic but lacks elite measurables. could be a steal in the 4th, probably goes late 3rd.

    roderick rogers 6'1 190lbs from wisconsin
    good ball skills and has good speed (4.45-4.5). plays very well in coverage and can make plays on the ball. could stand to gain some weight and bulk up to 195-200lbs. knee injury in bowl game may drop his stock, but he was able to do a full workout at his pro day and put up some solid numbers. 2nd day pick in the 5th-6th round area.

    any others?

    Aaron Rouse, Virginia Tech 6'4" 223 4.58
    Plays best against the run. Great athletic ability, also has sideline to sideline playmaking ability. Nasty intimidating presence in the defensive backfield who's only getting better with time.

    Daren Stone, Maine 6'3" 218 4.60
    Outstanding leaping ability. Very physical. Didn't play against elite competition; character issues may slow him down a little. Great on-field potential though.

    John Wendling, Wyoming 6'1" 222 4.48
    Plays intelligently. Great work ethic. Very physical and aggressive. Instincts aren't the best, though.

    Houston, again.
    If we go LT in the first, who would be expected to be the best FS likely available in the 3rd?
