The NFL Scouting combine is in the books, and we saw some major changes in draft stock, due to the performance of some prospects and the lack of performance of others. Texas A&M pass rusher Damontre Moore showed up for the combine unprepared and really disappointed scouts, and he will really have to improve on his numbers at his Pro Day improve his stock, while Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei was diagnosed with a potentially serious heart condition. Meanwhile players such as West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin and BYU OLB/DE Ziggy Asnah wowed scouts and climbed draft boards based on their performance. Let’s get to the picks in our 2013 NFL Mock Draft (Version 5.0) Post-Combine Edition:
1 ) Kansas City Chiefs – Luke Jockel, OT (6’6 306lbs) Texas A&M – The Kansas City Chiefs just traded their second round pick (plus a 2014 conditional pick) to the San Francisco 49ers for their former starting quarterback Alex Smith, so the quarterback position has already gotten a huge upgrade. Following the combine, I still think that Luke Jockel is the safest player in the draft, and that drafting him first overall is the smart move for the Kansas City Chiefs. He is so technically sound and so experienced that he is ready to start from day one. My problem with the pick is, the Chiefs current left tackle Branden Albert is a free agent, and if he leaves and they draft Jockel how much better does it make the team? I think that, if the Chiefs are able to retain Albert and play him at his more natural position of guard, they could have an elite offensive line. They will have to make a decision on Albert, who wants to play tackle, before the draft. I would push hard to re-sign Albert and play him at guard, then draft Jockel, and really improve the offensive line as a unit. That will protect new quarterback Alex Smith and help to get Jamaal Charles and the run game on track. If they lose Albert, they have no left tackle, and Jockel is a no brainer here.
2 ) Jacksonville Jaguars -Barkevious Mingo, DE (6’4 241lbs) LSU – The Jaguars had the worst pass rush in the NFL last season, it is a position that they have to upgrade immediately under their new head coach, former Seahawks defensive mastermind Gus Bradley. Mingo may have a higher ceiling than any player in the draft, the problem is, he has not put all of his talent together yet. A long armed pass rusher with an explosive first step, Mingo has the frame to get stronger, and although it make take him longer than others to develop he could be a superstar. He will instantly become an excellent situational pass rusher, as he showed with his 4.59 40-yard-dash, and once he adds strength and bulk he could become a monster. Some scouts think Mingo fits better as an outside linebacker, after he showed his athleticism and fluidity at the combine, but Gus Bradley will know how to get the best out of him.
3 ) Oakland Raiders – Eric Fisher, OT (6’7 306lbs) Central Michigan – I am surprised that more mock drafts have not considered the fact that Oakland’s offensive line stinks, and with the third pick in the draft, Eric Fisher may be the best player left on the board. Fisher was excellent at the combine, he showed why he has quickly risen up NFL Draft boards, by displaying strength and athleticism. He has crushed the entire draft process, dominating the senior bowl, testing well at the combine. The Oakland offense does not have a lot of opportunity to succeed due to poor offensive line play, the Raiders can begin to fix that issue by drafting a left tackle who should start for a long time in the NFL, and Fisher will be a great one.
4 ) Philadelphia Eagles – Dion Jordan, DE (6’6 248lbs) Oregon – During the 2013 NFL combine, Dion Jordan tested off the charts, running a 4.60 40-yard-dash and showing that he is fluid enough to play standing up in the Eagles new 3-4 defensive alignment. There is no doubt that Jordan needs to add a lot of strength to his lanky frame, but he has great speed and athleticism which should make him an excellent pass rusher right away. New Eagles head coach Chip Kelly was Jordan’s head coach at Oregon, and he has had nothing but good things to say about his former defensive star since the draft process started, so the two reuniting in Philly would make a lot of sense. Jordan has showed that he is worthy of a high draft selection even without the Chip Kelly connection.
5 ) Detroit Lions – Dee Milliner, CB (6’0 201lbs) CB Alabama – I truly believe that the Lions are on the cusp of being an excellent team, however I knew that they overachieved in 2011, and knew they would take a step back in 2012. If I am the Lions I am looking to improve in two places this offseason, the secondary and getting another wide receiver opposite Calvin Johnson, so when a team triples him quarterback Matt Stafford can make them pay. There are no wide receivers worth drafting here, so Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner would be an excellent pick, he is the best corner in this class and answered all questions about his speed at the combine by running a blazing 4.37 40-yard-dash. He has good size to go along with his speed and has a nose for the football. He would start in the Detroit secondary from day one, and plays both the run and the pass well, he would present a huge upgrade to the Lions defense and is too good of a player to pass up here. I think that this pick comes down to secondary or pass rusher for Detroit.
6 ) Cleveland Browns – Bjoern Werner, DE (6’4 266lbs) Florida State – The Browns need playmakers on both sides of the ball, and new general manager Mike Lombardi knows the value that a blue chip pass rusher brings to a defense, and while the Browns have a good one in Jaabal Sheard they need another terror off of the edge. Werner was one of the best players in the countries this past season, and he did nothing during the combine testing to hurt his stock, he did look stiff in positional drills and proved he fits best as a defensive end in the 4-3 defense. That is exactly what the Browns need. Werner is relentless and has a non-stop motor, which is something that everyone looks for in draft prospects, plus he has a good combination of strength and speed which should make him successful defending both the run and rushing the quarterback. I was very close to giving the Browns combine star BYU defensive end Ziggy Ansah here, as Mike Lombardi loves super-athletic prospects, however Werner is a better pick for their defensive system if he falls here.
7 ) Arizona Cardinals – Geno Smith, Quarterback (6’3 214lbs) West Virginia – There is no doubt that the Arizona Cardinals are desperate to acquire a quarterback, star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald must be losing his mind, because he is wasting his prime years with incompetent quarterback play. The Cardinals were a rumored destination for 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, but now that he was traded to the Chiefs, they will be desperate for a signal caller. Geno Smith actually reminds me a lot of Tony Romo, which is not an insult, he reminds me of Romo because they do the same things well. They both have a quick release, are very athletic in the pocket and have great feet, they both use their athleticism to extend plays. I have discussed this at length in this piece, Smith is not a running quarterback, he is a pocket passer. If Smith shows a strong arm and his excellent accuracy while throwing at the NFL combine, maybe new head coach Bruce Arians becomes convinced that he can succeed in the NFL.
8 ) Buffalo Bills – Cordarrelle Patterson, WR (6’2 216lbs) Tennessee – Another player who is quickly rising up draft boards, and a player that you like more and more every time you watch him on film, Paterson is a hot prospect right now. He has good size, great speed (4.42 40-yard-dash) and hands, but his best attribute is his body control. He can adjust in the air or on the fly to make catches, and while Buffalo has some nice wide receivers on the roster, their closest thing to a true number one threat on the roster is Stevie Johnson. Johnson is a nice player, but you cannot win the Super Bowl if he is your best guy, the addition of Patterson will help to open up the Bills offense.
9 ) New York Jets – Ziggy Ansah, DE (6’5 271lbs) BYU – It is a sad state of affairs for Gang Green, the Jets were an embarrassment this past season, and it is clear that major organizational changes need to be made. Coach Rex Ryan gets another year, but I have some major problems with Ryan, because for a guy who is known as a defensive whiz the Jets have absolutely no pass rush (30 sacks, tied for 25th in the NFL). I really think that finding an edge rusher who can consistently bring pressure would do wonders for the Jets, I think their defense is good, but any defense will be exposed when a quarterback has all day to throw the football. The Jets also need playmakers on offense, but none are worth taking here, with a total lack of pass rush in New York, Moore is an excellent fit. Ansah has been the fastest rising prospect, and he absolutely destroyed the combine, he ran a 4.63 40-yard-dash plus looked excellent in space and showed the agility to play standing up. He would instantly upgrade the Jets pass rush and could become one of the best players in this draft with some more experience, he just started playing football his junior year in high school, his ceiling is extremely high due to the ridiculous athleticism he has for his size.
10 ) Tennessee Titans – Chance Warmack, G (6’3 317lbs) Alabama – The Tennessee Titans have a lot of needs, and Chance Warmack may be the best player in this NFL Draft class, he is the best offensive guard that I have ever scouted. He is extremely athletic for his size, and his an absolute road grader in the running game, blowing open holes and manhandling opponents. He is also excellent at pulling due to his athleticism and is ready to start right away, he has been extremely successful at the highest level of college football, and has the talent to be a multiple time All=Pro guard in the NFL. Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak knows the value of a great offensive guard, he himself was a 10-time All-Pro guard in the 80’s and 90’s, and he will fall in love with Warmack as a prospect.
11 ) San Diego Chargers – Lane Johnson, OT (6’6 303lbs) Oklahoma – If new head coach Mike McCoy wants to rebuild this franchise quickly, it is best to start in the trenches, and keep quarterback Phillip Rivers upright. The Chargers offensive line was atrocious last season, they need a left tackle of the future who the team can build the rest of the offensive line around, and Lane Johnson is going to be a good one. Johnson was a junior college quarterback, then a tight end, then he transferred to Oklahoma to play offensive tackle. He showed the athleticism of a former skill position player at the combine, when he ran a 4.72 40-yard-dash, but also showed strength on the bench press. I would not be shocked if five years down the road Johnson is the best offensive tackle in this class, he is so athletic and has the frame to add a lot of power and bulk, his ceiling is extremely high.
12 ) Miami Dolphins – Keenan Allen, WR (6’3 205lbs) California – I have had the Dolphins picking Cordarrelle Patterson in this slot for weeks, but in this scenario he is gone, so the Dolphins move to the next wide receiver on their board. If the Dolphins want to give Ryan Tannehill a chance to develop, giving him a true number one wide receiver is a must, and the addition of a player like Allen will instantly open up the offense for Tannehill. Allen brings a great combination of size and speed that will be a deep threat, opening up the running game and the many possession receivers that Tannehill has in the Dolphins offense. Allen did not work out at the combine as he rehabilitates a knee injury, but I expect him to put up impressive numbers at his Pro Day, and be drafted in the first round. I thought about giving Miami Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro here, but it is a deep safety class, and they are armed with two second round picks to find help.
13 ) Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Xavier Rhodes, CB (6’2 210lbs) Florida State – The Buccaneers seem to be headed in the right direction, and they desperately need help at cornerback, and luckily Xavier Rhodes stepped forward at the combine as a first round pick talent. Rhodes has excellent size for the position, but I questioned if he was fast enough to become an elite corner in the NFL and stick with top flight wide receivers. Rhodes answered my question at the combine by running a 4.43 40-yard-dash, and as one scout said as Rhodes walked past him, “That is what an NFL cornerback is supposed to look like.”
14 ) Carolina Panthers – Sharrif Floyd, DT (6’3 297lbs) Florida – The Carolina Panthers found a gem in middle linebacker Luke Kuechly, who led the NFL with 164 tackles as a rookie, but who could really use some help in front of him. Sharrif Floyd is one of the hottest names right now among draft experts, he was very impressive at the combine, running a 4.92 40-yard-dash and showing excellent quickness and agility. I have heard some concern among scouts that he has short arms for a defensive tackle, which could make disengaging from blockers a problem for him, however I do not see that as an issue. He is strong, is very quick and agile and is blessed with a great first step, I will be mildly surprised if Floyd lasts this long on draft day.
15 ) New Orleans Saints – Jarvis Jones, OLB (6’3 245lbs) Georgia – The Saints had the worst defense in the NFL by far last season, and they are now switching from the 4-3 to the 3-4, so they will need new personnel. Jarvis Jones was the best defensive player in college football last season, and to find him available with the fifteenth pick in the first round is nothing short of amazing, and a huge get for the Saints. I had Jones on top of my big board at the start of the draft process, however a back problem (spinal stenosis) has caused his stock to slide, but he remains confident that it will not have an impact on his career. Jones is not only an excellent pass rusher, but he is also a strong run defender who can even drop into coverage, and he is a perfect fit for the Saints 3-4 defense where he will fit perfectly at outside linebacker.
16 ) St. Louis Rams – D.J. Fluker, OT (6’6 335lbs) Alabama – The Rams were a much improved team in 2012 and since they traded the second overall pick to the Washington Redskins, who paid a hefty price to draft quarterback Robert Griffin III, they have a lot of room to improve again in the 2013 draft. In this scenario, the offensive tackle prospects have flown off of the board, and since this is a major position of need for the Rams they address it with their first of two picks. Fluker is an absolute an absolute mauler in the run game, who plays with a nasty streak. He will struggle at times with speed rushers, but he is athletic for his size, and can hold his own in pass protection. The fact that I do not think he is light on his feet enough to play the blindside knocks him down a bit, but make no mistake, he is going to be a good one.
17 ) Pittsburgh Steelers – Kenny Vaccaro, S (6’1 210lbs) Texas – The Steelers need to focus on two areas and two areas only during the 2013 Draft 1) Get younger on defense and 2) Improving the offensive line, so Ben Roethlisberger stays healthy, however the line struggled partly due to injuries. The Steelers have an excellent starting safety tandem, who are getting up there in age (Troy Polamalu is 31 and Ryan Clark is 33) and have struggled with injuries during recent years. It is time for the team to look for the next generation of ball hawk safety in Pittsburgh, and Vaccaro is just that, he has amazing range and is instinctive in coverage.
18 ) Dallas Cowboys – Jonathan Cooper, G (6’3 311lbs) North Carolina – The Cowboys offensive line problems are different than those most organizations commonly have, most teams have problems finding their tackles of the future, but in Dallas the tackles are good and the interior offensive line is a mess. Jonathan Cooper is one of the best offensive guards to enter the NFL in quite some time, and I have him ranked just slightly behind Chance Warmack, he is a powerful blocker in the run game who is also strong against interior pass rushers. This is a major need for the Cowboys, so much so that I would not be surprised to see them draft another guard later in the draft, it has been that big of a problem.
19 ) New York Giants – Alec Ogletree, LB (6’3 242lbs) Georgia – The Giants allowed the second most yards in the NFL this season, and while they were known for linebackers like Lawrence Taylor and Carl Banks in the 1980’s their recent teams have been based much more around defensive linemen. It’s time they get a sideline-to-sideline, athletic linebacker, who can lead the league in tackles. Alec Ogletree is an absolute freak athlete, who makes plays all over the field, and is an excellent pass rusher. He sees plays develop and seems to be in on every tackle, in fact eh lead the Georgia Bulldogs in tackles, despite being suspended for the first four games of the season. The Giants could really use an upgrade at inside linebacker, and players as productive as Ogletree are hard to find.
20 ) Chicago Bears – Menelik Watson, OT (6’5 317lbs) Florida State – There is no doubt the first order of business for Chicago Bears head coach Mark Trestman should be to upgrade the offensive line, both to protect quarterback Jay Cutler and to open holes for running back Matt Forte, the Bears struggled mightily in both of these areas last year. Menelik Watson is a hot prospect right now, and I have been told that he will not get out of the first round, he has long arms and good bulk for the position in the pros. Offensive line prospect will fly off the boards on draft day, and with it being such a need for the Chicago Bears, they can ill afford to wait to draft one. The Bears pick should be the best offensive tackle left on the board in the first round, and in this case, it’s Watson.
21 ) Cincinnati Bengals – Desmond Trufant, CB (5’11 190) Washington – The Cincinnati Bengals are a team on the rise, and as long as Andy Dalton and their young offensive weapons continue to improve, they are a few roster tweaks away from one of the best cores in the NFL. They have drafted well over recent years, and looking at their roster, I think they are the second deepest team in the NFL after the 49ers. Right tackle or pass rusher could become needs, as Andre Smith and Michael Johnson are both free agents and will get large contracts, and the Bengals can only franchise tag one of them. Desmond Trufant really impressed me at the combine, as he ran a 4.38 40-yard-dash and looked very natural in coverage, he is also strong enough to make tackles against the run. Although they drafted corner Dre Kirkpatrick last year, Pac Man Jones is a free agent and Nate Clements is getting old, they could use even more youth at the position. The Bengals do not have a lot of needs, so they can really take the best player available.
22 ) St. Louis Rams – Tavon Austin, WR/KR (5’9 175lbs) West Virginia – In this scenario the Rams have already drafted an offensive lineman to fill that need, and now they address their major need at wide receiver, by drafting diminutive Tavon Austin. What Austin lacks in size, he makes up for in speed and quickness, he ran a 4.34 40-yard dash at the combine and was impressive running routes and catching the football. Whoever drafts Austin may have to be a creative to get the ball in his hands, but he is so explosive that he is a threat to score at all times, and the opponent has to gameplan for him whenever he is on the field.
23 ) Minnesota Vikings – Star Lotulelei, DT (6’4 311lbs) Utah – The Vikings have had a strong defensive line for years, however longtime defensive tackle Kevin Williams will be 33 years-old at the start of this season, and Minnesota has to start looking for their defensive line of the future. There was a point in the draft process that Star Lotulelei was the top player on my draft board, but a heart issue discovered during the medical exam at the combine will hurt him on draft day, and will cause his stock to slide a bit. If he checks out okay after further testing, Lotulelei is a dominant defensive tackle who commands double teams, pushes the pocket, and destroys plays in the backfield as they develop. He is violent with his hands and plays with great leverage, although he will never be an explosive interior pass rusher, he will make rushing the passer much easier for his teammates by dominating the interior line. He is the kind of player that centers and guards dread going up against, and he is ready to start from day one. The Vikings could also really use an outside threat at wide receiver to open things up for quarterback Christian Ponder and his weapons like Adrian Peterson, Percy Harvin and Kyle Rudolph, however those on the board would be a reach here. Look for the Vikings to grab a receiver like Tennessee’s Justin Hunter or Baylor’s Terrance Williams in the second round.
24 ) Indianapolis Colts – Damontre Moore, DE (6’4 250lbs) Texas A&M – The Indianapolis Colts, lead by rookie sensation Andre Luck, were the most surprising team of the 2012 season. They need to hit a home run with their first round pick, since they traded their second round pick to the Miami Dolphins for cornerback Vontae Davis. They get lucky in this scenario, because they are losing longtime pass rushing threat Dwight Freeney in free agency this summer and could really use another strong pass rusher for Chuck Pagano’s 3-4 defense. Damontre Moore was an excellent player at Texas A&M who was extremely productive, however he showed up unprepared at the combine, and has a lot of work to do to rebuild his image. If he can improve on his combine numbers at this Pro Day, there is a chance he is drafted much higher than this, Moore would be a steal this late in the first round.
25 ) Seattle Seahawks – Datone Jones, DE (6-4, 283) UCLA – The Seahawks are absolutely loaded with young defenders who hit hard and have a ton of speed, however they lost leading pass rusher Chris Clemons (11.5 sacks) to a knee injury in the playoffs, and he could miss considerable time in 2013. Jones is a hot prospect, because of his power as a defensive end combined with the versatility to line up all along the defensive front. He ran a 4.80 40-yard-dash at 283lbs at the combine, to go along with 29 reps on the bench press, so he fits the mold of players on the Seattle defense. Big, strong, fast. Combined with their 2012 first round pick Bruce Irvin, the addition of Jones will give the Seahawks a scary pass rush going forward, which will help out their amazing secondary.
26 ) Green Bay Packers – Eddie Lacy, RB (5’11 231lbs) Alabama – The Green Bay Packers had zero running game last season, which is a big problem, because they have one of the most unstoppable offenses in the league. It would bring an entire new wrinkle to the Green Bay offense if they bring in a power back such as Eddie Lacy, who is the only running back in this class who is worth a first round pick. Lacy is not a one-tick-pony, he also has good hands and can catch the ball out of the backfield, he is fast enough to break long runs and has the power to run defenders over. Green Bay needs to add a running game to complement their passing attack, their offense will be even more unstoppable with the addition of a back who possesses Lacy’s skill set.
27 ) Houston Texans – Quinton Patton, WR (6’1 204lbs) – Louisiana Tech – The Texans are excellent defensively, but really lack an outside weapon on offense for quarterback Matt Schaub across from the aging Andre Johnson, it is time to find another wide receiver. Patton is not a burner but does have speed as evidenced by his 4.52 40-yard-dash, he is coming off of a monster season, and he should become a star in the pass heavy NFL of today. He has great hands, runs sharp routes, and knows how to get open. Has a great feel for the game, confuses defensive backs, has them shaking their heads after plays. Against Texas A&M this season, Patton had 21 catches for 233 yards and 4 touchdowns. Read that back to yourself. He would be the perfect complement to Andre Johnson and would help take the Texans passing offense to the next level.
28 ) Denver Broncos – Sheldon Richardson, DT (6’3 294lbs) Missouri – If the draft breaks this way, the Denver Broncos should rush to the podium, knocking people out of the way to draft Richardson. He would be an absolute steal here, he probably the most athletic defensive tackle in this draft class, and has great awareness and recognition on the field. He is excellent at sniffing out delayed handoffs and screens, he does not fall for misdirection, and he even generates a nice pass rush from the inside. The Broncos could really use help along the interior defensive line, and they are lucky that this draft is deep at that position, they should get a good player who can help immediately.
29 ) New England Patriots – Matt Elam, S (5’10 208lbs) Florida – The New England Patriots need to focus on upgrading their pass defense if they are going to make another run at the Lombardi Trophy in the Tom Bray Era, and Matt Elam is the kind of player that all NFL fans want on their team. Has a knack for the big play, will deliver punishing hits, he forces fumbles and makes interceptions. I know that you can find safeties in the later rounds, but not ones like Elam, this sounds like blaspheme to Philadelphia Eagles fans but he reminds me of Brian Dawkins. We all know Bill Belichick loves drafting Florida players, he does so again here, and gets a great one in Elam.
30 ) Atlanta Falcons – Tyler Eifert, TE (6’6 250lbs) Notre Dame – The Atlanta Falcons will not win the Super Bowl until they fix their pass rush, and I keep wanting to mock a pass rusher to them here, however I am hearing they hope to fill this need in free agency by bringing in Osi Umenyiora or Dwight Freeney. Falcons future Hall-of-Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez is undecided if he will retire or not, and tight end is a need either way, because his illustrious career is nearing its end. Tyler Eifert would be an excellent replacement, he is a matchup nightmare because of his size and speed (4.60 40-yard-dash). Eifert on the field at the same time as Julio Jones and Roddy White would be downright scary, plus Eifert is versatile enough to split out wide or play the slot, he would be an excellent fit in Atlanta’s offense.
31 ) San Francisco 49ers -Jonathan Jenkins, DT (6’4 346lbs) Georgia – What do you get the team that has everything? The 49ers are the deepest team in the NFL, they are absolutely loaded, and stumbled in stud quarterback Colin Kaepernick who has lead them to a Super Bowl. They do have some aging players on their roster, including defensive end Justin Smith, and they could use some beef in the trenches to keep their defense the force that it currently is for the foreseeable future. Jonathan Jenkins is an absolutely massive defensive lineman, who can line up at nose tackle or at end in the 49ers 3-4 defense, and will give that unit some much needed youth.
32 ) Baltimore Ravens – Kevin Minter, LB (6’0 245lbs) LSU – I had Manti Te’o pegged to replace the retiring Ray Lewis’ as the heart and soul of Baltimore’s defense, but after seeing Ravens head coach John Harbaugh’s reaction to Manti’s 4.82 40-yard-dash at the combine, there is no way I see them drafting Te’o. Minter may be a better fit for the Baltimore defense, he is a thickly built tackling machine with good instincts, who can deliver the big hit. The Ravens will need to sure up the middle of their defense without Lewis, and Minter would be a great fit, his strong tackling can help fill the void left by one of the all-time greats.
Just Missed The Cut: Manti Te’o, LB (6’2 255lbs) Notre Dame, Jonathan Hankins (6’3 320lbs) Ohio State, Kawann Short, DT (6’3 300lbs) Purdue, Sylvester Williams, DT (6’3 315lbs) North Carolina, Justin Hunter, WR (6’4 200lbs) Tennessee, Barrett Jones, OL (6’5 305lbs) Alabama, DeAndre Hopkins, WR (6’1 214lbs) Clemson, Corey Lemonier, DE (6’4 255lbs) Auburn, David Amerson, CB (6’1 203lbs) NC State, Dallas Thomas, OL (6’5 300lbs) Tennessee, Bennie Logan, DT (6’3 290lbs) LSU, Mike Glennon, QB (6’7 225lbs) NC State, Shawn Williams, S (6′ 218lbs) Georgia, Jesse Williams, DT (6’3 323lbs) Alabama, Tony Jefferson, S (5’11 210lbs) Oklahoma, Matt Barkley, Quarterback (6’2 220lbs) USC, Robert Woods, WR (6’0 201lbs) USC, Tank Carradine – DE, (6’4 276lbs) Florida State, Ryan Nassib, QB (6’2 230lbs) Syracuse, Kyle Long, Oregon, OG (6-6, 304) Oregon, Margus Hunt, DE (6’8 277lbs) SMU, Tyler Wilson, QB (6’2 218lbs) Arkansas, Larry Warford, OG (6’3 334lbs) Kentucky, Khaseem Greene, OLB (6’1 241lbs ) Rutgers, Le’Veon Bell, RB (6’1 244lbs) Michigan State, Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB (6-0 189 lbs) UConn, Gavin Escobar, TE (6’6 255lbs) San Diego State, Montee Ball, RB (5’11 215lbs) Wisconsin, William Gholston, DE (6’7 280lbs) Michigan State, Stedman Bailey, WR (5’10 193lbs) West Virginia, Arthur Brown, LB (6’0 241lbs) Kansas State, Giovani Bernard, (5’10 206lbs) North Carolina, Terrance Williams, WR (6’2 208lbs) Baylor, Zach Ertz, TE (6’6 250lbs) Stanford, Jonathan Banks, CB (6’2 185lbs) Mississippi State, Sam Montgomery, DE (6’3 262lbs) LSU, Eric Reid, S (6’1 213lbs) LSU, Cornelius Washington, OLB/DE (6’4 265lbs) Georgia, Nick Kasa, TE (6’6 270lbs) Colorado, Ryan Swope, WR (6′ 205lbs) Texas A&M, Alex Okafor, DE (6’5 264lbs) Texas, Jonathan Cyprien, S (6′ 217) Florida International, Jamar Taylor, CB (5’11 192lbs) Boise State, Brandon Williams, DT (6’1 335lbs) Missouri Southern
