Draft Digest: Thursday Night Football




Tonight game is Texas at Texas A&M, here are the guys to keep an eye on for the 2010 NFL Draft.


Texas:
QB Colt McCoy, Texas (SR) – McCoy is a very smart player who doesn't get rattled easily, and always seems very poised in and outside of the pocket. Still there are question marks surround his arm strength and whether or not he’s a “system quarterback”—can he succeed outside the comfort of the spread offense? I like McCoy but I don’t see him being a “franchise” quarterback in the NFL, but I do think he will get drafted in the first round because all it takes is for one team to fall in love with him, and believe that he can be that franchise quarterback.


WR Jordan Shipley, Texas (SR) – Shipley is a productive receiver in Texas and is better athlete then people give him credit for and has good size at 6-0 190 pounds and should be around the high 4.4 rang in the 40. He shows good ability to run good, clean routes and catches the football with his hands. He also can be used in the return game and had a touchdown but as a punt returner and kick returner last season. The thing with Shipley is he is a stead receiver that isn’t going to wow you in any particular aspect of his game and is a number two receiver at the NFL level. Right now has a second round grade from NFL scouts.


OT Adam Ulatoski, Texas (SR) – They say everything is bigger in Texas and Ulatoski certainly does his best to prove that correct at 6-8, 300-plus pounds. Ulatoski is a fifth-year lineman who is a smart player on and off the field—he graduated in December 2008, and was a two-time first-team Academic All-Big 12 selection. He is a powerful offensive tackle with good feet and the ability to play left tackle in the NFL. However, he seems better suited for the right tackle position because he is a good athlete, but not a great athlete, and is a better run blocker then he is a pass blocker. Right now has a sixth round grade from NFL scouts.


DT Lamarr Houston, Texas (SR) – Houston has played both defensive end and defensive tackle in his college career, he has good size at 6-2 300 pounds and could play defense end in a 3-4 defense or defensive tackle in a 4-3 defense. He has good quickness and has the ability to get in the backfield and make plays. Right now holds a fifth round grade for the 2010 NFL Draft.


OLB Sergio Kindle, Texas (SR)– Kindle is tougher against the run and a better blitzing linebacker than Aaron Curry who was the number four overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. Kindle is a very strong pass rusher who can be a great blitzing strong side linebacker or even defensive end on 3rd downs. He has great speed and aggressiveness, and always plays hard. Right now has a second round grade from NFL scouts.


OLB Roddrick Muckelroy, Texas (SR) – Muckelroy doesn’t get the hype that his fellow linebacker Sergio Kindle gets, but all he does is make tackle and last season end up with 102 total tackles. He isn’t the linebacker that is going to make the huge hit or the game changing sack and forced fumble but what he is going to do is do his job and make very few mistakes. He is a very consistent player and there is no reason to think that he will be any different at the next level. Right now has a fourth round grade from NFL scouts.


S Earl Thomas, Texas (Redshirt Soph) – There is some talk about him coming out early since he is a redshirt sophomore and would be eligible for the 2010 NFL Draft. He is a good overall athlete who can make plays both in the running game and in the passing game. He has ok size at 5-10 200 pounds, but has great speed and coverage ability as a safety. The question mark is if he come out where will he get drafted, some think he might be a late first round pick, or an early second round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, but we will just have to wait and see if he declares.


Texas A & M:


OLB Von Miller, Texas A&M (JR) – Miller is a good looking athlete and would fit in a 3-4 defense as an outside linebacker. He has a lot of pass rushing skills and has shown the ability to drop in coverage and is a good overall athlete would good size for an outside linebacker at 6-3 240 pounds. Right now if he declares should be a late first round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Texas vs. the Nation Alumni of the Week



This weeks Texas vs. the Nation Alumni of the week is outside linebacker Andy Studebaker of the Kansas City Chiefs who against the defending Super Bowl champions Pittsburgh Steelers had five tackles (four solo), a half-sack and two interceptions in Sunday's overtime win. One of his interceptions came in the redzone where it looked like the Steelers would score and then Studebaker picked off the pass and took it 94 yards and almost returned it for a touchdown. This was Studebaker's first start of the season, because of Mike Vrabel injury and the second-year player from Wheaton College in Illinois made the most of his opportunity.

Draft Digest: Tuesday Night Football



Tonight's game is Ball State at Western Michigan, there is really only two seniors to keep your eye for the 2010 NFL Draft and they both play for Western Michigan. They are QB Tim Hiller, and RB Brandon West.


QB Tim Hiller, Western Michigan (SR) - He has good size for a quarterback at 6-4 230 and can make all the throws that will be ask of him at the next level. He is mostly a pocket passer but is a good enough of an athlete to move around and avoid the rush, but isn’t much of a runner. He should go to the Texas vs the Nation All-Star game and hopeful that will help improve his stock. Right now carries a 6th round grade.


RB Brandon West, Western Michigan (SR) - He is a smaller framed running back at 5-10 185, but does have some quickness and speed and has the ability to catch the football. He looks like a third down running back and a possible return guy at the next level. A lot will depend on his workout numbers and what he runs in the 40 since his game is based on speed and quickness. So far it doesn’t look like he will get invite to an All-Star game or the combine. Right now carries a 7th round to free-agent grade.

Draft Digest: Ohio State at Michigan



Players to Watch for 2010 NFL Draft:


DE Brandon Graham, Michigan (SR) - Player with a ton of talent on a bad team, could end up being a later 1st round pick or early 2nd round pick.


WR Greg Mathews, Michigan (SR) – He is a good size wide receiver with decent speed the past two season hasn’t put up huge number because of the inconsistency of the quarterback at Michigan. He could show something at an All-Star game and individual work out that could move his draft stock up but right now is a 7th round pick or free-agent.


LB Obi Ezeh, Michigan (JR) – Some have said that will leave early, but I expect him back at Michigan for his senior season next year. He is a good overall athlete and if does declare he would be a 4th round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.


CB Donovan Warren, Michigan (JR) - Warren most likely is gone from Ann Arbor and will declare of the 2010 NFL Draft. He has good size and he a good overall athlete, right now should be a 2nd or 3rd round pick.


DE Cameron Heyward, Ohio State (JR) – Powerful player who many think will leave early, possible 1st round pick.


DE Thaddeus Gibson, Ohio State (JR) – Most likely an outside linebacker in 3-4 defense, could leave early if did so would be a 2nd or 3rd round pick.


CB Chimdi Chekwa, Ohio State (JR) – Another junior who might take his game to the NFL after this season, good size cornerback. If could out would be a 3rd – 4th round pick.


S Kurt Coleman, Ohio State (SR) – A good athlete who can make plays in the secondary. Should end up being a 4th round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.


DT Doug Worthington, Ohio State (SR) – An athletic defensive tackle who could play defensive tackle in a 4-3 or has the ability to play defensive end in the 3-4. Should be a 6th round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.


S Anderson Russell, Ohio State (SR) – Not as good of an athlete as his running mate at safety Kurt Coleman, but still a good overall football player. Look for him to be a 7th round pick.

Draft Digest: Thursday Night College Football


We have a Big 12 game tonight on Thursday Night College Football, players to watch for the 2010 NFL Draft are the following:

OT Russell Okung, Oklahoma State – Okung right now looks like a sure fire top 10 pick and the first offensive tackle drafted in the 2010 NFL Draft. Okung is a durable player, and he has started as a true freshman. He is a good athlete, with good lateral mobility which allows him to be a very good pass protector. He has quick feet and fluid movement, and also possesses a mean streak that scouts look for in offensive linemen. Coming from the spread offense that Oklahoma State runs, Okung will need to improve as a run blocker. He also needs to get stronger in the weight room.

CB Perrish Cox , Oklahoma State - Cox has good size a 6-0 200 pounds and is not only a good cover cornerback, but a willing tackler. He has good speed and shows that off as a very good return guy. He has the ability to play both man to man and zone coverage as a cornerback. He has 29 total tackles this season with 4 interceptions and 15 pass break-ups. He has 543 kick return yards on 24 returns averaging 22.6 yards a kick return. Cox also has returned 12 punts for 106 yards. Right he looks like a 2nd round draft pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

RB Keith Toston, Oklahoma State – Toston has really improved his draft stock this season, with the lost of Dez Bryant to a NCAA suspension he has been the focal point of the offense. Toston has good size at 6-0 214 and has put up some good stats this season with 958 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns, averaging 5.4 yards a carry. He has also caught 22 passes for 211 yards. The biggest question mark is going to be his straight line speed and right now looks like a 5th round pick.

QB Zac Robinson, Oklahoma State - Robinson plays in a spread offense that so much of college football is going to, and which makes it hard for NFL personal to really get a true evaluation on what a quarterback can do at the next level. One things Robinson is a good athlete and can move in the pocket to give himself time to get the ball down field and has a strong arm. He hasn’t had the season that many people thought he would have and some of the reason is because of the NCAA suspension of his top receiver Dez Bryant. He is completing 63.5% of his passes for 1,922 yards and 15 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. He has rushed for 302 yards and 4 touchdowns. Right now looks like a 6th or 7th round pick that a team will want to develop for down the road.

OG Andrew Lewis, Oklahoma State – Lewis has the ability to play both guard and center and has decent size at 6-4 295 pounds. Does a good job in pass blocking, but needs to get a little stronger in run blocking and that will come in time because of the offense that he plays in. He has good feet and is a good overall athlete. Right now he looks like a 7th round pick.

S Andre Sexton, Oklahoma State – Sexton has played linebacker and safety at Oklahoma State, he has good size at 6-0 224 and will be projected as a safety at the next level he is a good overall athlete, but needs to improve his coverage skills but is a good tackler. This season so far has 53 total tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 1 interception, and 4 pass break-ups. Right now looks like a late round draft pick or an undrafted rookie free-agent.

S Lucien Antoine, Oklahoma State – Antoine is a physical safety and will come up and hit you. Has good size at 6-1 215, but needs to improve his coverage skills. This season has 53 total tackles, 6 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, and 1 interception. Will be a in the box type safety at the next level. Right now looks like a late round draft pick or an undrafted rookie free-agent.

OLB Patrick Lavine, Oklahoma State – Lavine has been a constant for OSU over the last three seasons, he finished second on the team in tackles as a freshman and sophomore and fourth as a junior. This season has 59 total tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack and 5 interceptions. Lavine has a safety in high school and skill has good coverage skills for an outside linebacker and has decent size at 6-2 226 pounds. He needs to add some weight to play at the next level and right now like a late round draft pick or an undrafted rookie free-agent.

Colorado really doesn’t have any seniors for the 2010 NFL Draft.

Draft Digest: Wednesday Night College Football


We have two MAC games tonight in Buffalo at Miami (OH) and
Central Michigan at Ball State. Players to keep your eye on for the 2010 NFL Draft:

Buffalo at Miami (OH):
WR Naaman Roosevelt, Buffalo - Roosevelt has decent size at around 6-0 190 pounds, but does a good job running routes and get in and out of his breaks. He is a player in the NFL that can play in the slot as well on the outside and will come in to the NFL as a number three receiver and could become a number two receiver down the road. Right now looks like he will be a 5th round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

S Mike Newton, Buffalo – Newton is an in the box type safety and has good speed and size at 5-11 200 pounds. This season so far has 71 tackles, a sack and an interception. He needs to get better in coverage, and should be a late round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft or will get signed as a free-agent.

***RB James Starks, Buffalo – Injured and hasn’t played this season but someone that will be getting a look from NFL Scout at Buffalo pro day if he doesn’t get invited to the NFL combine.

Central Michigan at Ball State:
QB Dan LeFevour, Central Michigan – One NFL Scout told me that they had LeFevour as their second overall senior quarterback. He has had an outstanding senior season and career for Central Michigan and will get a chance to go to an All-Star game and the NFL Combine where his true final grade will be found out. He is a very good athlete and also is an accurate passer, the question mark is his arm strength. I think when it all said and done he is a 3rd round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, with a good All-Star week showing and a good combine could move up into the 2nd round.

WR Bryan Anderson, Central Michigan – Like LeFevour Anderson has had an outstand career at Central Michigan. He is a big, physical receiver at 6-5 215 pounds, with good hands the question mark is his straight line speed and we will have to see what that is when we get a clock on him. If he can be in the low 4.5 rang he could be a 3rd round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

NFL Draft: 2010 Safety Rankings




Here are my top 10 senior safeties.

1. Taylor Mays, USC – Mays is the top overall senior prospect going into the season, he has the size and the speed that the NFL looks for at the safety position. Some scouts believe that Mays is a type of game changing player the Raven’s Ed Reed or the Steeler’s Troy Polamalu. Many thought that Mays would come out for this past Aprils draft and if he did he would had been a first round pick. He has great measurables since he is around 6-3 230 and can run in the 4.4 in the 40. He is a prototypical center-fielder displaying elite range to go along with good instincts, and has a great motor and intensity. On the down side he will take bad angles to the football and he relies too much on his pure speed more than proper technique.

2. Nate Allen, South Florida – Allen has good size at 6-2 206 and has the speed and athleticism to play both man to man a zone coverage at the next level. He will come down a support the run as well as play pass coverage and last season had 53 total tackles, 1 sack and 1 interception. This season Allen has been better then he was last season and so far has 60 total tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 3 interceptions and 4 pass break-ups. He has improved on his coverage skills and has moved up the draft boards.

3. Darrell Stuckey, Kansas – Stuckey was first team All-Big 12 last season. Stuckey lead the team with five interceptions and was second on the team with 98 tackles. He has good size at 6-1 205 pounds and not only does well in pass coverage but will come up and support the run. He has good speed and is an aggressive hard hitting safety. This season he has lead the team in tackles, with 73 total tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 1 interception, and 2 pass break-ups. He is a great in the box safety and just needs to improve his coverage skills to be a complete safety at the next level.

4. Kamer Chancellor, Virginia Tech – Chancellor is a big athletic safety and can match USC’s Taylor Mays in overall size as a safety as both are 6-3, and Chancellor is 225 pounds. Last season Chancellor had 52 tackles, 2 interceptions and 5 pass break-ups. He is a good overall athlete and his size helps when he comes down and supports the run, he is a little stiff in the hips in pass coverage and is better in zone coverage then man to man, but has the ability to play both. He will come up and hit you and just needs to work on his pass coverage skills to become and overall player at the next level. This season so far has 57 total tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 1 interception and 3 pass break-ups.

5. Harry Coleman, LSU – Coleman this season has gone from playing safety to playing linebacker because that is what the LSU Tigers needed him to do, but at the next level he will move back to playing strong safety. This season so far he has 63 total tackles, 6 tackles for loss, 3 sacks, and 3 pass break-ups. He has shown this season that he will be a good in the box safety and does have the coverage skills to play on the back-end as well. Has good size for a safety at 6-2 206.

6. T.J. Ward, Oregon – Ward has only played in 5 games this season so far because of injuries but has 46 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 1 interception and 3 pass break-ups. He has decent size at 5-11 208 pounds and is a good overall athlete. He has good coverage skills and played some cornerback earlier in his career.

7. Justin Woodall, Alabama – Woodall is a big, strong safety at 6-2 220 pound who is willing to support the run and has a nose for the football, he show good coverage ability for a strong safety and does a good job in the box. This season he has 36 total tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, 2 interceptions, and 4 pass break-ups.

8. Kurt Coleman, Ohio State – Coleman thought about entering the NFL draft before returning to Ohio State, which was a good move for him. Last season he had 78 total tackles, and has 11 total tackles in the Fiesta Bowl against Texas, and end the season with 4 interceptions. Coleman has alright size at 5-11 190 pounds and has good overall speed and has good range in pass coverage, and seems to be able to read and react well, in both the run and the passing game. This season Coleman has had 60 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 3 interceptions, and 2 pass break-ups.

9. Myron Rolle, Florida State – Rolle did not play this season because he won the Rhodes Scholar award and spent the year studying abroad. In the 2008 season he was third on the team with 62 total tackles, and had 5 pass break-ups. He has good size at 6-2 218 and he is a Rhodes Scholar so is a very smart person and he is also football smart. There was a lot of hype around him when he came to Florida State and never really turned into the player people thought he would be but is a very good player. That is what I see him being at the next level, maybe not a great player but a very good overall player.

10. Darian Stewart, South Carolina – Stewart is a hard hitting safety who get in there and supports the run, this season he has 50 total tackles, 6 tackles for loss, and 4 pass break-ups. He has decent size a 5-11 216 pounds. He is much more of a in the box safety and needs to improve his coverage skills to be a all around safety at the next level.
