E Newton starebbe lavorando con lo stesso qb che ha aiutato BB quest'anno.

MessaggioTitolo: Re: Draft 2011, top prospects   Mar 15 Feb 2011, 16:45

Questi sarebbero i QB che al prossimo draft dovrebbero uscire fra il primo e terzo giro. Sarebbero da aggiungere altri 2 o 3 nomi ma a me (visto e considerato l'atteggiamento delle squadra al draft dello scorso anno) parrebbe già strano che già tutti e 5 i nomi a seguire possano uscire così presto.


Given the quarterback's importance and the number of teams searching for a viable option, let's take a deeper look at the top five prospects at the position heading into the NFL Scouting Combine:

1. Blaine Gabbert, Missouri: He has emerged after posting a pair of 3,000-yard seasons. He is big (6-foot-5, 235 pounds) with outstanding arm strength and touch, and is capable of making all of the throws required in the pro game. His quick release and compact throwing motion enable him to get the ball out against pressure. He is regarded as a sound decision-maker, and his 40:16 touchdown-to-interception ratio backs up that assertion. While there are major concerns about his ability to transition from a spread offense to a more pro-style attack, his natural talent rates off the charts. He could emerge as the No. 1 quarterback prospect heading into the final phase of the evaluation period if he's able to accomplish a few things at the combine. He has to demonstrate good footwork, quickness and body control, while executing throws from three-, five- and seven step drops. He must also convince evaluators that he has the mental acumen to handle the complexities of running a pro system.
Possible landing spots: Buffalo, Cincinnati, Arizona, San Francisco, Tennessee, Minnesota.


2. Cam Newton, Auburn: He is one of the most intriguing prospects due to his remarkable combination of size, speed and athleticism. He is coming off a sensational season at Auburn, where he led the SEC in rushing yards, amassed 30 touchdowns through the air and won a BCS National Championship. As a passer, he shows arm strength and touch, and has solid mechanics for a young player. He gets the ball out of his hand quickly on short and intermediate throws, while also displaying good accuracy when going downfield. He has the ability to drop the ball in the bucket on deep sideline tosses. Even though he has struggled at times with his accuracy from the pocket and on the move, his issues are correctable and not viewed as long-term impediments to his potential. If he can continue to develop his footwork and fundamentals, it would help his transition from a spread quarterback to a pro-style passer. He must also display the work ethic and study habits expected of a franchise quarterback. That package could push Newton up draft boards.
Possible Landing Spots: Carolina, Buffalo, Tennessee, Washington and Miami.

3. Ryan Mallett, Arkansas: He has seemingly flown under the radar, but his exceptional size (6-6, 238 pounds), arm strength and skills have put him squarely on the map with so many teams desperately seeking a solution at quarterback. He is well schooled in the pro game following a two-year stint under Bobby Petrino, who has NFL coaching experience, and that time could give him a leg up on the competition. Mallett understands how to run the game from the line of scrimmage, and his ability to make proper checks helped him exploit blitz pressure for big gains. As a classic drop-back passer with a good pocket presence, Mallett has the potential to excel in the vertical passing game. He throws the deep ball with exceptional touch and accuracy, and his penchant for pushing the ball deep is rare for a young quarterback. Although questions regarding his maturity and work ethic will need to be addressed during the interview process, his skill set will warrant a first-round grade on most boards.
Possible Landing Spots: Miami, Minnesota, Seattle, Cincinnati.


4. Jake Locker, Washington: He has been watched by scouts the past few years due to his extraordinary athleticism, movement skills and potential. As a dual-threat at quarterback, he shows promise working on the perimeter on bootlegs and movement passes. He throws the ball with good zip on the move and has above average accuracy when he keeps his mechanics in check. However, he often falls apart mechanically when working from the pocket. His accuracy issues stem from his inability to come to balance before he throws. The issues surfaced during his week at the Senior Bowl, when he had difficulty stringing together completions in drills. While Locker still rates as a top-40 talent, he will need to start showing gradual improvement as a passer to remain as one of the top quarterbacks in the class.
Possible Landing Spots: Washington, Miami, San Francisco, Seattle.

5. Christian Ponder, Florida State: After falling out of the limelight following an injury-plagued senior season, Ponder has re-entered the conversation following his solid week at the Senior Bowl. He is a classic drop-back passer, but has good mobility and athleticism within the pocket. He displays good set-up quickness when working off conventional three-, five- and seven-step drops, and routinely delivers the ball on time. As a passer, he demonstrates arm strength and touch on intermediate and deep throws. He also shows good awareness and anticipation when leading receivers into open windows. With the majority of pro offenses employing some form of a West Coast system, Ponder will experience a late surge in his stock when coaches take a closer look at the game tape. If he checks out medically, expect to see Ponder drafted sooner than anticipated.

MessaggioTitolo: Re: Draft 2011, top prospects   Mer 16 Feb 2011, 11:06

Queste invece le considerazioni sui 5 RB più quotati:

1. Mark Ingram, Alabama: He didn't post sensational numbers as a junior, but is still regarded as the top running back. He is a stocky power runner with outstanding running skills and instincts. He is explosive out of his stance, and flashes a burst getting to the hole. He shows good acceleration while working to the second level, and his patience, vision and cutback talents allow him to gain positive yards when creases close quickly. Ingram uses those same skills to turn the corner on outside runs. He cleverly sets up his blocks on the edge, and uses a sneaky burst to get to the perimeter. He might not possess exceptional speed, but his creativity in the open field leads to big runs and allows him to deliver explosive runs (runs over 20 yards) on a consistent basis. For a team looking for a dependable workhorse with the skills to excel as a pro, Ingram should rank at the top of the list.


2. Mikel Leshoure, Illinois: He is a versatile workhorse with the skills to shine in a pro-style offense. He exhibits outstanding balance, body control and vision. He is nifty getting into creases in traffic, and his nimble feet allow him to slither through to the next level while avoiding contact. Although his explosiveness will lead some to label him as a finesse runner, he is hard-nosed and willing to finish off runs in a physical manner. Leshoure shows good hands and natural receiving skills when incorporated into the passing game. He is capable of running the route tree from the running back spot, but excels most when used on slow screens. His patience and crafty open-field running skills routinely lead to big plays. If Leshoure tests well in workouts, he could earn a late first-round grade by the end of the evaluation process.

3. Daniel Thomas, Kansas State: He is a big, bruising runner with an old-school style that is suited for the pro game. He excels running between the tackles, and flashes outstanding balance, body control and quickness while running downhill. He has a knack for getting skinny in the hole, but also flashes outstanding power and pop on contact. He routinely runs through arm tackles, and finishes his runs with authority. Although his skill set is ideally suited for power football, Thomas also flashes the speed and burst to get to the corner. He gets to the second level quickly on perimeter plays, and shows nimble feet and agility in the open field. Given his size, strength and impressive running skills, Thomas will be a coveted prospect certain to carry high grades on draft boards.

4. Ryan Williams, Virginia Tech: He surprisingly entered the draft after suffering through an injury-plagued year, but scouts are hoping that he regains the sensational form that propelled him to 1,655 rushing yards in 2009. At 5-foot-10, 202 pounds, he shows impressive speed, quickness and running skills. He attacks seams between the tackles, and flashes an explosive burst in the hole. His ability to climb to the second level quickly makes him a threat to score from any distance, and his 30 rushing touchdowns in only 23 games is indicative of his penchant for putting the ball in the paint. Although Williams' explosiveness shines in the open field, it is his ability to get the tough yards between the tackles that makes him most effective. He possesses enough strength and power to run through contact in the hole, and shows an uncanny ability for falling forward at the end of runs. His strength, toughness and tenacity result in positive yardage on most of his attempts, and his overall skills will fit in well at the next level.

5. Kendall Hunter, Oklahoma State: He is slightly undersized at 5-foot-7, 199 pounds, but he plays the position bigger than his physical dimensions. He runs with aggression between the tackles, and shows the balance, vision and body control to slide through creases in traffic. His aggressive running style catches defenders off guard, which leads to a host of broken tackles on the second level. Hunter also shows good quickness and cutback skills while working on the perimeter. He routinely beats defenders to the corner, but has a knack for finding open seams against the pursuit. Although he lacks the home-run speed that scouts covet, his ability to get to the second level is a testament to his

Ho visto solo Ingram e, anche se non è fra questi, demarco murray (mi pare si chiami così), ma a leggere le caratteristiche dei RB postati mi incuriosirebbe vedere a cincy un tipo daniel thomas che non tutti danno fra i primi 5. In pratica un tipo di RB gambone che corra per vie centrali e che possa essere anche un buon pass blocker.

Questi invece i WR:

Wide Receivers
1. A.J. Green, Georgia: It's a rare occurrence when a receiver ranks as the top player in the draft, but Green might be the first pass-catcher since Keyshawn Johnson to hear his name called as the No. 1 overall pick. He dominates the game from the perimeter and is a polished route runner capable of getting open against man or zone coverage. He routinely gains separation from corners by changing speeds or using a clever assortment of stems to keep defenders off balance. He displays outstanding hands and ball skills. He tracks the ball well with his eyes and adjusts well to throws that are slightly off target. His ability to come down with the spectacular catch stood out on tape. Although Green doesn't appear to be a speed merchant, he makes explosive plays down the field and is a dangerous playmaker with the ball in his hands. Green will factor heavily into the mix as a potential No. 1 pick.
Possible landing spots: Cincinnati, Cleveland, Washington




2. Julio Jones, Alabama: He has thrived as the Crimson Tide's No. 1 receiver since his arrival on campus three years ago. He is a big, physical receiver with outstanding strength and skills. He shows good body control getting in and out of his breaks, and effectively uses his superior size to gain separation from defenders. He has excellent hands and ball skills. He tracks the ball well, and makes easy adjustments on errant throws. He demonstrates outstanding concentration and focus by extending to grab passes away from his body. He does occasionally drop an easy toss, but not enough to be a concern. Jones is a dynamic runner with the ball in his hands. He makes defenders miss in the open field and possesses the strength to run through arm tackles. If teams are searching for a classic No. 1 receiver with the skills to make an instant impact, Jones should rank near the top of the list.
Possible landing spots: Washington, St. Louis, New England, San Diego

3. Jonathan Baldwin, Pittsburgh: As a junior, he was unable to match the production of his sophomore season, but he still enters the league regarded as one of the top players at the position. He is a big, athletic receiver with outstanding overall skills. He is a natural pass-catcher with exceptional ball skills. He adjusts well to poor throws and has a penchant for coming down with difficult throws in traffic. Although his junior season was littered with drops, his inconsistencies as a pass-catcher are due to lapses in concentration rather than suspect hands and ball skills. He is ideally suited to play as a possession receiver, but still flashes big-play potential when running vertical routes. He routinely wins jump ball situations on 9-routes, and quarterbacks will look to utilize his athleticism near the red zone. He occasionally flashes that athleticism while running with the ball in the open field, but isn't a dynamic or explosive player with the ball in his hands. Regardless, he possesses the talent and skills to be a No. 1 receiver in a ball-control offense.
Possible landing spots: New England, San Diego, Baltimore, Pittsburgh

4. Titus Young, Boise State: He has been one of the most dominant playmakers in the country the past two seasons, and he opened eyes with his sensational play at the Senior Bowl. He is a dynamic vertical playmaker with exceptional speed, quickness and burst. He routinely runs past defenders on deep throws, and his ability to separate with the ball in the air is impressive. Young also shows exceptional quickness and burst getting in and out of his breaks on intermediate routes. He is an excellent open-field runner with the speed to turn short passes into big gains. While his diminutive size (5-foot-10, 170 pounds) is a concern, his big-play potential is tantalizing and has led to comparisons with DeSean Jackson. If he posts sizzling times in workouts, Young's stock will skyrocket.
Possible landing spots: Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago

5. Torrey Smith, Maryland: He is a multi-purpose threat with the size, speed and athleticism to be an immediate impact player on the next level. He finished as the ACC leader in kickoff return yards and set the school's single-season mark with 12 touchdown receptions a year ago. Smith specializes in running past defenders on deep posts and 9-routes. While his route running needs work, he routinely finds a way to get open, and his open field running skills shine when he gets the ball in his hands. Smith will rank as one of the top kick returners available, so teams coveting an explosive all-purpose weapon will have to pull the trigger early to land him.

Non sono particolarmente ferrato ma se escludiamo forse Farley DT, Bowers DE, Patersson SB (forse S) non mi pare ci siano fenomeni al draft di quest'anno.

Questi invece sono i prospetti più interessanti fra gli OT:


Offensive Tackles
1. Nate Solder, Colorado: Solder has seamlessly transitioned from tight end to being a three-year starter at left tackle, showing outstanding athleticism and movement skills as a pass blocker. He mirrors speed rushers well off the corner and has the body control to handle counters. He occasionally has issues dealing with power players adept at using bull rushes, but his length and athleticism make him an ideal left tackle candidate. In the running game, he is a sticky blocker who uses angles to cut off defenders. He routinely gets on linebackers and safeties in space, and is capable of being featured in a movement scheme that uses pulls or traps from the offensive tackles. Solder isn't the most polished offensive tackle prospect in the class, but his talent and intriguing potential have scouts willing to pull the trigger early to land his services. If he dazzles in workouts, he could creep into conversation as a potential top-10 pick.
Possible landing spots: Dallas, Detroit, Indianapolis

2. Anthony Castonzo, Boston College: Castonzo hasn't generated the same level of fanfare as Solder, but his workmanlike game is built on sound fundamentals. He plays with patience and poise, and his ability to handle rushers has been honed through four years of starting. As a pass blocker, he shows good quickness out of his stance and has the lateral quickness to shadow speed rushers. He combines his underrated athleticism with a strong initial punch and accurate hand placement. He routinely wins downs against rushers by neutralizing their quickness before they can get started. In the running game, Castonzo lacks the strength to maul defenders at the point, but effectively uses his body position to keep his assigned player out of the play. With the majority of teams employing a zone-based running game, he shouldn't have any issues functioning as an immediate starter at left tackle. If he can continue to surprise scouts with better than anticipated athleticism, he could be taken earlier than expected. Throw in Boston College's esteemed reputation for producing quality offensive linemen, and it isn't surprising that he is slowly creeping up draft boards.
Possible landing spots: Dallas, Detroit, Philadelphia, Chicago

3. Gabe Carimi, Wisconsin: He is a big, physical blocker with strength and power. A dominant run blocker adept at blowing defenders off the ball on power plays, he relies on his size and relentless motor to eventually wear opponents down. Even though he lacks the athleticism to excel in space, he routinely cleans up trash on the second level. In pass protection, Carimi effectively battles finesse rushers. He lacks the movement skills to shadow and dance, but he compensates by quickly engaging rushers and using his frame to push them past the quarterback. He is best suited to play right tackle on the next level.
Possible landing spots: Minnesota, Jacksonville, Pittsburgh


4. Tyron Smith, USC: Scouts are salivating over his rare athleticism and movement skills. He glides through his movements on the edge and shows the agility to handle crafty pass rushers and to anchor against power. He occasionally stops his feet against counters, however, his long arms allow him to latch on to keep rushers from getting to the quarterback. As a run blocker, he flashes power moving defenders off the point of attack. He is better suited to function as a positional blocker in a zone-based scheme. He has spent the bulk of his career manning the right side, but his size, athleticism and body control have many teams projecting him as a left tackle. A strong showing in workouts could boost his stock.
Possible landing spots: Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Chicago

5. Derek Sherrod, Mississippi State: He is an athletic edge blocker with an excellent frame and good movement skills. He is surprisingly nimble for his size and shows good lateral quickness in space. As a pass blocker, he looks like a natural left tackle with the ability to mirror speed rushers. He reacts and adjusts to counter moves well and flashes a good initial punch engaging with a rusher. With a game that is built on finesse skills, Sherrod struggles against power players. He lacks the strength, balance and body control to anchor against bull rushes and will need to develop an effective counter to thrive as a pro.

E le G:

Guards/Centers
1. Mike Pouncey, Florida: He possesses outstanding athleticism and movement skills, and his instincts shine while he controls the offense from the pivot. He's started 13 games at center and 28 at guard. That flexibility makes him a valuable commodity. Pouncey is an athletic blocker at the point of attack with the strength and power to move defenders off the ball. He has the quickness to cut off linebackers and safeties on the second level. As a pass blocker, he has the body control and strength to anchor against power rushers. He holds his ground against bull rushes, and has the balance to react quickly to counters without losing control. Given his versatility and talent, Pouncey can solidify his status as the top interior blocker with a strong performance at the combine.
Possible landing spots: Indianapolis, Pittsburgh

2. Danny Watkins, Baylor: He is an aggressive interior blocker with good instincts. He quickly recognizes stunts and games upfront, and his ability to sort rushers is indicative of his awareness. As a pass blocker, Watkins shows strong hands and quickly engages defenders after the snap. He flashes strength, balance and body control anchoring against power. He maintains the integrity of the pocket and provides the quarterback with a clean launch point. Watkins has toughness and tenacity as a run blocker. He moves defenders off the ball and effectively sustains and finishes blocks. With all his attributes, Watkins is certain to be one of the first interior linemen off the board.
Possible landing spots: Kansas City, New England


3. Rodney Hudson, Florida State: He is a tough, rugged interior player. He shows good instincts and awareness in pass protection, while easily sorting through twists and games at the point of attack. His ability to pass off rushers indicates he understands protection well. Against power rushers, he has balance and body control when he anchors. Hudson also displays good lateral movement when he faces quick penetrators in isolated matchups. As a run blocker, Hudson excels at moving defenders off the ball and gives outstanding effort when finishing blocks. Even though he lacks ideal size, Hudson is a solid Day 2 prospect at this point.
Possible landing spots: Philadelphia, Indianapolis

4. Clint Boling, Georgia: He is a smart, instinctive player with the versatility to play multiple spots. As a pro, he is ideally suited to play guard due to his rugged demeanor and awareness. He quickly identifies potential rushers within the box, and his ability to switch responsibilities with his teammates shows his anticipation. He has quick, accurate hands, and his initial punch stops rushers in their tracks. As a run blocker, he lacks the strength to consistently move defenders, but he is a solid position blocker with the athleticism to limit pursuit on the backside. He isn't an ideal fit in a power scheme, but his toughness and intelligence make him capable of thriving in most systems.
Possible landing spots: New England, Philadelphia

5. William Rackley, Lehigh: He is underrated player with outstanding size, instincts and tools. He dominated small-school competition, and held his own against talented players from BCS programs in the East-West Shrine Game. He's capable of moving defenders and flashes enough quickness to get blocks at the second level. He flashes a strong initial punch in pass protection and is fairly accurate with his hand placement. While he hasn't consistently faced strong competition, his strong showing in Orlando has many scouts forecasting Rackley as a solid prospect.

I DE:

4-3 defensive ends
1. Da'Quan Bowers, Clemson: He is an athletic edge player with exceptional physical tools. He comes off the ball with explosive first-step quickness and shows outstanding athleticism while slipping past blockers in the pocket. He cleverly uses a combination of speed rushes and power moves to create consistent pressure off the edge. Bowers' ability to mix speed and power also allows him to be a dominant force against the run. He is strong and stout against runs to his side, and flashes outstanding closing quickness while chasing runners down from the backside. Given his immense talent and playmaking ability, it is not surprising that he is one of the most coveted edge players in the draft.

Possible landing spots: Carolina, Denver, Buffalo


2. Robert Quinn, North Carolina: He missed all of 2010 due to an NCAA suspension for improper benefits, but he still ranks as one of the top pass rushers in the draft. He is an outstanding athlete with explosive speed and quickness. He overwhelms offensive tackles with his initial burst and closing quickness. He combines his natural athleticism with excellent hand skills and a relentless motor. He routinely wins on second and third effort, and his persistence eventually wears out opponents. As a run defender, Quinn shows good strength, power and awareness. He effectively stacks the blockers at the point of attack and quickly works through traffic to get to the ball. Although his missed season certainly stunted his growth as a player, his outstanding athleticism and physical gifts should shine in workouts and push him up draft boards.

Possible landing spots: Buffalo, San Francisco, Tennessee

3. Adrian Clayborn, Iowa: He is a talented edge rusher with outstanding quickness, athleticism and movement skills. He shows good initial quickness off the ball and uses an array of athletic rush moves to get free off the edge. He complements his impressive athletic skills with a solid array of rush moves that makes him difficult to handle in isolated matchups. As a run defender, he is an outstanding pursuer from the backside with the speed and quickness to create disruption in the backfield. Although he occasionally struggles against runs in his direction, he flashes the strength to hold the point and make the play for a minimal gain. Given his exceptional talent and intriguing skills, Clayborn is an interesting prospect capable of making a surge up draft boards with a strong showing in Indy.

Possible landing spots: Minnesota, Jacksonville, Tampa Bay

4. Ryan Kerrigan, Purdue: He is a productive high-motor rusher with exceptional skills. He shows outstanding initial quickness, and his combination of athleticism and superior hand skills routinely allows him to defeat blockers off the edge. His disruptive nature off the edge is problematic for opponents not prepared to match his energy and effort. Kerrigan's hustle also shines as a run defender. He works to quickly shed blockers at the point of attack, and his willingness to chase from the backside often results in big hits and turnovers. With a blue collar game built on hustle, grit and determination, Kerrigan is an ideal base end in a 4-3 scheme.

Possible landing spots: Tampa Bay, New Orleans, Seattle

5. Aldon Smith, Missouri: He is a long, rangy defensive end with good athleticism and quickness. He shows outstanding initial quickness and agility, and often defeats blockers immediately at the line with his explosive get-off. He isn't polished with his hands, but his burst and movement skills allow him to routinely win as a pass rusher. Although his stats were down from a season ago, he repeatedly flashed big-time ability when moved inside in rush situations. As a run defender, he flashes potential, but needs to play with better leverage and pad level at the point of attack. He is easily moved off the ball when he pops up out of his stance, and he has problems getting free when engaged. Against runs away, he shows exceptional speed and quickness while pursuing from the backside. He routinely runs down ball carriers while working down the line of scrimmage. Overall, Smith has impressive talent and potential, and a strong showing at the combine could send his stock soaring as an intriguing defensive end/3-4 rush linebacker.

Possible landing spots: N.Y. Jets, New England, Buffalo

3-4 defensive ends
1. Cameron Jordan, California: He has surged up draft boards after emerging as a dominant force at the Senior Bowl. He was nearly impossible to contain in individual and team drills when working from the defensive tackle or end position, and his film from his final season at Cal reflects that same ability. He is a fluid athlete with good size, speed and quickness. He shows good first-step quickness and has the ability to play with power or finesse at the point. He cleverly works angles to his advantage and combines his agility with violent hands. He effectively uses an assortment of moves to quickly win battles at the line. Against the run, he can stack against single or double teams, and his ability to create penetration is impressive. Throw in a non-stop motor that results in numerous negative plays, and it's easy to envision Jordan becoming a difference maker as a pro.

Possible landing spots: New England, San Diego, Washington


2. J.J. Watt, Wisconsin: He is a hard-working defensive end with outstanding size and length. His combination of height and arm length makes him an ideal candidate to play at the five-technique, but his motor, tenacity and toughness set him up for success. He outworks blockers at the point of attack, and his relentless effort routinely results in disruptive plays. As a pass rusher, his game is built on power and force. He attacks blockers with his hands and quickly uses an assortment of power moves to shed shortly after engagement. He combines those skills with a fanatical desire to the quarterback. His sacks are often the result of winning on second or third efforts, and that determination overwhelms blockers by game's end. Against the run, Watt shows good strength and power at the point. He stacks and sheds quickly, and flashes sound instincts in finding the ball. Although there are others rushers in the draft with more athleticism and pizzazz, Watt's overall combination of skills will make him a coveted prospect.

Possible landing spots: New England, Baltimore, N.Y. Jets

3. Muhammad Wilkerson, Temple: He is a versatile defensive end with the skills to play anywhere along a "30" front. He is strong and stout against the run, and shows outstanding instincts finding the ball. His ability to stack and hold the point frees others to make plays, but he also flashes playmaking ability when facing isolated matchups. As a pass rusher, he uses his rare combination of size, strength and athleticism to defeat blockers with an assortment of power moves. He uses his hands well upon engagement, and his quick push/pull move often takes blockers by surprise. While most talented defenders have yet to develop solid hand skills at this stage of their development, Wilkerson's ability to win battles with an assortment of moves puts him ahead of others at his position. If he shows those skills in drills, he could slowly creep up boards across the league. Possible landing spots: New England, N.Y. Jets, Green Ba

Ed i DT:

Defensive tackles
1. Nick Fairley, Auburn: He is one of the most disruptive defenders in the draft, and his penchant for playmaking led Auburn to the BCS Championship. He overpowers blockers with his size and strength, and he was nearly impossible to block without a double team. Against the run, he shows outstanding instincts and awareness while quickly diagnosing plays at the line of scrimmage. He reads quickly on the run, and his ability to locate the ball is remarkable. Fairley shows exceptional skills as a pass rusher. His natural talent is overwhelming, but his aggressive approach yields big results. He attacks blockers at the line of scrimmage and uses his strength or quickness to overpower them when they rock on their heels. Although he needs to do a better job of using his hands to disengage, it's hard to dispute his outstanding production against elite competition on a weekly basis. If he can answer questions about the occasional lulls in his play, he could cement his status as the top player on most boards.

Possible landing spots: Carolina, Denver, Cincinnati

2. Marcell Dareus, Alabama: He is an impact interior defender with exceptional physical tools. He is a big body with outstanding strength and power. He bullies blockers at the point and routinely creates a push up the middle against single or double teams. As a pass rusher, Dareus is a polished technician with good hand skills and awareness. He quickly wins at the point of attack and shows impressive quickness getting to the quarterback. Although he hasn't racked up gaudy numbers as a pass rusher throughout his career, he possesses the skill set and fundamentals to be a disruptive interior rusher. Given his impressive physical tools and polish, Dareus is an attractive prospect who could make a late surge up the charts as scouts spend more time studying his tape.

Possible landing spots: Denver, Cincinnati, Cleveland



3. Corey Liuget, Illinois: Liuget has exceptional size, strength and power. He is strong and stout at the point of attack and shows hand skills when disengaging from blockers. His ability to quickly shed after contact allows him to make disruptive plays against the run. As a pass rusher, he is more of a pocket pusher than a polished rusher. He routinely pushes blockers into the quarterback's lap, and the harassment up the middle leads to errant throws. While he might never develop into a double-digit sacker from the interior, his size, presence and disruptive run skills will make him a highly coveted interior defender.

Possible landing spots: Houston, Seattle, Chicago

4. Stephen Paea, Oregon State: He is a disruptive interior defender with outstanding speed and quickness. He explodes off the ball and routinely defeats blockers with his first-step quickness. He shows exceptional agility, balance and body control on his rush attempts, and his superior hand skills allow him to win quickly at the line. As a run defender, he relies on his quickness and athleticism to slip under blocks to track down runners in the backfield. His ability to create disruption from an inside position makes him an attractive prospect for teams employing movement-based pressure schemes. If he can display a good combination of athleticism and strength in workouts, he will make some teams looks past his less-than-ideal height for the position.

Possible landing spots: Seattle, Chicago, Atlanta

5. Phil Taylor, Baylor: He is a mountain of a man with outstanding skills as a run stopper. He shows excellent strength and power at the point of attack, and his ability to stalemate double teams frees others to make plays. When isolated against the run, he whips blockers with his power and superior hand skills. His ability to quickly disengage allows him to produce negative plays in the backfield. Although his energy and production declines dramatically when his play count reaches high levels, he shows flashes of dominance when he is fresh to begin drives. As a pass rusher, Taylor is more of a pocket pusher, but he occasionally gets in on the quarterback due to his brute strength. While he will never develop into a double-digit sack artist as a pro, he could be a serviceable pass rusher on early downs. After climbing up draft boards following his solid performance at the Senior Bowl, Taylor can continue his ascension with a strong

I lainbecher della parte di fuori:

Outside Linebackers
1. Von Miller, Texas A&M: He flies out of his stance and his body control allows him to bend around the corner without losing speed. With a speed rush that overwhelms most offensive tackles, Miller routinely gets to the quarterback. He has added a series of counters that allow him to defeat overaggressive blockers with inside moves. His ability to win inside or out forces offensive coordinators to take added measures to neutralize him, which frees up others to make plays. Although he rarely dropped into coverage in college, his feel and awareness were better than anticipated during the Senior Bowl.

Possible landing spots: Buffalo, San Francisco



2. Akeem Ayers, UCLA: He is a sideline-to-sideline chaser with good instincts and awareness. He flows well to the ball and shows a penchant for creating turnovers. In the running game, Ayers is stout at the point of attack. He has long arms to quickly separate and shed from blockers. As a pass rusher, he's capable of slipping past blockers and has the hand skills to win isolated battles. He has a good feel for reading the quarterback's eyes and his six career interceptions reflect his potential as a zone defender. While he continues to need refinement in man technique, he has the potential to develop into an every-down player.

Possible landing spots: New Orleans, Atlanta, Chicago



3. Justin Houston, Georgia: As a pass rusher, few can match his first-step quickness and his closing burst rates off the charts. He brings an energy that produces garbage sacks. Houston is capable of playing in a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme. He blows past blockers thanks to his anticipation of the snap and bend. He tends to favor an up-field rush, but flashes violent hands and body control on inside counters. Against the run, he stacks blockers at the line of scrimmage and does a good job of working free to the ball. He's adept at diagnosing plays and his relentless pursuit on the backside frequently leads to big hits.

Possible landing spots: Baltimore, New York Jets, New England




4. Bruce Carter, North Carolina: He is a rangy linebacker and flows well from sideline to sideline. Carter has the potential to make plays all over the field. He quickly diagnoses plays, aggressively flies to the ball and is a sure tackler. In coverage, he has a solid feel for pass concepts and anticipates throws. Even though he wasn't incorporated into the rush package often, his athleticism would appear to make him an excellent blitzer as a pro. He also contributes on special teams, which gives him added value over others at the position. Carter suffered an ACL injury that ended his past season early and threatens his status as an early-round selection. His medical report at the combine will be vital to his stock.

Possible landing spots: Minnesota, Chicago



5. Dontay Moch, Nevada: He is a collegiate defensive end projected to move to outside linebacker. Moch is expected to run in the 4.30 range in the 40-yard dash and that explosiveness is apparent on tape. He flies out of his stance and shows a knack for getting to the quarterback. He can overwhelm blockers and routinely runs free to the quarterback. He has amassed 30 sacks in college, but lacks the size (6-foot-1, 245 pounds) and strength to consistently win isolated matchups. He gets knocked off his track and lacks the hand skills or strength to win physical battles. Against the run, he is better chasing from the backside due to his speed. He struggled making the conversion to outside linebacker at the East-West Shrine Game. Still, his speed will prompt a team to take a chance on him as a potential pass-rushing specialist in a 3-4 scheme.

Possible landing spots: New York Jets, San Francisco, Baltimore
