heres the draft i propose:
#22 Round 1 (traded)
Brandon Marshall WR (Denver Broncos) for the 22nd pick in this year’s draftor select Jared odrick DE (penn state)
# 44 Jerry Hughes OLB (TCU)
#47 Rob Gronkowski TE (Arizona)
#53 Jared Veldheer OT (Hillsdale) Height: 6-8 Weight: 315
Vince Oghobaase DE (Duke) HT: 6'6" | WT: 300
-Disruptive at the point of attack, does a nice job finding gaps and getting into the backfield
-Plays with appropriate pad level, good lower-body strength makes him a valuable run stuffer
-Very athletic given his frame, shows surprising agility, initial quickness and lateral movement
-Uses his hands well to fend off blockers and make the tackle
-Can tie up multiple offensive linemen
-High football IQ
-Started every game in his career prior to this season's injury
-Would be best off as a 3-4 defensive end, but has enough size as strength to fit in a 4-3
O'Brien Schofield OLB/ILB (Wisconsin)
He tore his ACL during Senior Bowl practices. He was a solid 2-3 round pick prior to the injury. Now he could go 6-7 round or undrafted. Schofield projects to ILB in the NFL. He states he's 6-2+, 245-250. He claims during a Junior Pro Day he ran a 4.43 in shorts on field turf, a school record. Officially his 40 is 4.63 which is still pretty decent.
Obviously he will need a year to recover and return to form but maybe he'd be worth a 6-7th rounder, let him sit out and learn while he rehabs. If he returns to form in 2011, it would be such a nice gain hopefully like what we hope happens with McKenzie this year.
Round 6 (we will receive one compensatory 6th round pick)
Perry Riley OLB (LSU)
Joe Webb QB/WR (UAB)-(the next endelman)
He had an 11-foot, five-inch broad jump, 42.5-inch vertical jump and a 4.43 40-yard dash. The former Blazers quarterback is being looked at primarily as a receiver (he caught 30 passes for 459 yards and three touchdowns as a sophomore. passed for 2,367 yards and rushed for 1,021 … ranked No. 48 in the country and sixth in C-USA in rushing (85.1 avg.) … shattered the C-USA records for rushing yards by a quarterback in a single season with his 1,021 … ranked fourth in the nation for rushing yards among QBs … accounted for 21 touchdowns, rushing for 11 and passing 10 … connected on 59 percent of his passes … passed for more than 200 yards in six games … season rushing total of 1,021 is only the second 1,000-plus performance in school history for a his season … passing total for yards is UAB's fifth-highest in school history … rushed for more than 100 yards in four games
Round 7 (most likely we will receive three 7th round compensatory picks + Philly’s + Denvers)
Zoltan Mesko P (Michigan) or Jeremy Boone P (Penn State)
Richard Dickson TE/FB (LSU)
Chris Marinelli OT (Stanford) could be groomed to take over for neal at OG
He has the versatility to play guard or tackle at the next level, thanks to his intelligence, size, strength, foot speed and nasty streak. That's a lot of things for NFL offensive line coaches to like
Curtis Steele RB (Memphis)
Patrick Stoudamire CB (Western Illinois)
Trindon Holiday WR/KR (LSU) 5-5, 162, 4.27 small but extremely fast with good hands.
Jeff Byers OL (USC) Height: 6-4 | Weight: 301
Byers' versatility, intelligence, competitive nature and underrated athleticism give him a chance to have a long NFL career in the pivot. Rarely rocked back or pushed into the backfield. Even when he stops his feet, can remain engaged with his long arms. Has the mobility and toughness to be effective in a zone-blocking scheme. Gets low in short-yardage situations to win leverage battles. Highly intelligent and plays with good hustle and a mean streak.
Sam Shields WR/CB (Miami FL) Height: 5-11 | Weight: 183 | 10” hands |sub 4.4 40 time
Nolan Carroll CB (Maryland) Height: 6-0 | Weight: 204 | 4.37 40 time
J’Marcus Webb OT (west Texas A&M) Height: 6-7 | Weight: 335
Jeron Mastrud, TE (Kansas State) Height: 6-6 | Weight: 256
This son of a high school football coach brings intelligence (2008-09 Academic All-American), character (named to AFCA Good Works team) and underrated athleticism to the tight end position.
Scott Long, WR (Louisville) Height: 6-2 | Weight: 216
