1. Baker Mayfield
QB, Oklahoma
HT: 6005v |  WT: 215v |  40: 4.84v
1. CLEVELAND Three-year starter and captain from Austin, TX. As a freshman he started seven of eight games at Texas Tech. The driver of the most explosive offense in college football. His honors over the past three years would rival the thickness of a Philadelphia phone book. Threetime Heisman Award finalist and winner as a senior, unanimous AllAmerica, Davey O’Brien Award as the top quarterback, Maxwell Award (top player), and Walter Camp and AP Sporting News Player of the Year. The list is endless but a few things really stand out of all the accolades. Consistency over three years at Oklahoma, three conference championships, two national playoff appearances, and FBS passing efficiency (196.4). He then broke his own record this year with a 198.9 rating. Had 40 consecutive games with a touchdown pass, yards per passing attempt (9.7), holds the OU career record for consecutive passes without an interception (200). Has a pattern of success from high school where he led his team to a Texas 4A state championship as a junior (16-0) and a district championship as a senior with a 6-0 record. Was successful as a walk-on at Texas Tech where he was the Big 12 Freshman of the Year. The former Sooner is an instinctive playmaker who has the ability to memorize, handle new situations, handle adjustments, and demonstrate discipline with the football. A successful quarterback must have two things at the top of position specifics - accuracy and decision making. Mayfield’s overall accuracy is crisp and consistent to keep receivers on their routes. He has excellent ball placement where the receivers rarely have to adjust for a ball. He can hit a moving target at full speed with timing, touch, and just the right velocity to make it a catchable ball. Has deep accuracy as well, documented by putting the ball over the receiver’s outside shoulder away from the defender. He can also drop it in the bucket at 55-yards with good loft, feel, and anticipation. He plays in a complex offense where he is asked to do a lot with pre snap reads, checks, and adjustments. His right adjustments and his ability to react to a blitz are on a doctoral level of quarterback play. He reads more swiftly and processes information like a Tianhe-2 Chinese supercomputer. Quick decisions in his throws. He not only has arm talent but arm strength as well. When on the radar gun at the Combine his peak speed had very little drop off to the catch point. Only Josh Allen who clocked 62 mph had more RPMs than Mayfield’s 60 MPH. He has a quick compact delivery with strong wrist snap. Always ready to throw. Ball is high where he cuts it loose so there is no wasted motion. He throws a tight spiral with velocity and an overhand delivery. He can make every throw - short, intermediate, and long. He puts the ball on the receiver. His feet are always alive in the pocket. Good balance up on toes, can throw over the defense with timing and anticipation. Hangs in the pocket under a heavy rush. Good footwork, balance, and pocket vision. Slides away from pressure. Has a natural feel in the passing game and the sense to read the play quickly as it develops. Poised, tough, and a clutch player. Can take a hit. Moves the team in clutch situations, especially when the game is on the line. Athletic enough as a runner. Cracked off a 54-yard run versus TCU in the conference championship game. Quick, aggressive, and smart as a scrambler. A good ball handler who is smooth on the shotgun snaps and handoffs. Has the grit to stay in the pocket but makes positive plays when the pocket breaks down. Managers the game well. Plays with instincts, control, and makes positive plays. He knows the offense and sees the field. He knows where all his receivers are at. As a leader his teammates respect him and can count on him with confidence. A very consistent performer who is reliable and loves to play football and the quarterback position. When it comes to situational football, he knows what to do and when to do it. Has the mental makeup of a championship quarterback. He energizes his team and makes the people around him better. He lost 70% of his skilled cast after the 2016 season, but elevated the team to greater heights in 2017. He can play in bad weather. The 2016 West Virginia game was in ice and snow. The Sooners won 56-28 and Mayfield averaged 11.3 yards per passing attempt. The creative playmaker has inherent throwing accuracy similar to fellow Texan and Austin native, Drew Brees. When Brees came out of Purdue he was 6002, 209, and ran a 4.84/ 40. Mayfield is 6005, 215, and ran a 4.84/40 at the Combine. Mayfield may be a little more mobile than Brees. In today’s game the quarterback must have some mobility because a short run is just like a check down pass. The highly motivated and competitive leader is not a player of entitlement, but rather the two-time winner of the Burlesworth Trophy (most outstanding player who began his career as a walk-on). A player of high football character who will pay the price to be a great NFL quarterback. 2017 stats: 285/404, 4627 yds, 70.5%, 43 TD, 6 INT, 311 yds rushing, 5 TD, 198.9 QB rating. Ball velocity 60 mph. OSR:6/18. First round. (A-30 3/4, H-9 1/4, SS-4.28, VJ-29).
2. Saquon Barkley*
RB, Penn State
HT: 6000v |  WT: 233v |  40: 4.41v
2. NEW YORK GIANTS Junior entry and two-and-a-half year starter from Coplay, PA who is respected by his teammates for his work ethic and leadership. Started six games as a true freshman. Missed two due to injury. Rushed for over 100 yards in five games his freshman year. Had a run of 56 yards against both Ohio State and Michigan. To say Barkley is just a running back is to say an AH-64 Apache Longbow Attack weapon is just a helicopter. The ex-Nittany Lion is a one-man arsenal who can tilt the balance of a game. He is a dangerous player who can take away the soft edge of a defense. Has rare speed to turn the corner and barrel up the field in the blink of an eye. Has exceptional vision inside as a gap runner. Talented enough to run around, through, or over the top of a defender. His explosive speed was showcased in the 2017 Rose Bowl where he outran USC speedster and now starting Titan corner Adoree‘ Jackson for a touchdown. Barkley was 44 pounds heavier than Jackson. The dynamic runner has made plays out of nothing for two years. With a volatile offensive line, he earned every yard. He runs the inside zone out of the spread like he invented it. Patient then to and through the crease. Will jump cut as needed. As a blocker he sets back as a search light looking for blitzes and stunts, then steps up and attacks any penetration. Head is always on a swivel. As a receiver he has the ability to line up in any position. Runs a route then catches the ball with soft natural hands. He has the ability to catch all pass routes. Excellent hand/eye coordination and production as a consistent pass receiver. He can defeat the quick jam or bump and run technique. Catches the ball with his eyes. A big game player who is durable. Reads coverage and is athletic after catch. Good ball reactions. Has the ability to get open short on ‘Texas’ pattern or long on wheel routes. Adjusts naturally to the ball in flight. He picks up speed down the field. Runs through the ball and has leaping and timing ability. A playmaker in a combative environment. For most of Barkley’s college career he would take what the defense gave him by muscling or burrowing into the line for a short gain if nothing was there, but in 2017 there were a few games where he stutter-stepped looking to create rather than take what was there and play another day. The workhorse back has exceptional contact balance. He wears down a defense as he repeatedly steps through tackles. The Penn State offense works off of Barkley. He is a broken field runner who can change direction without slowing down. A gash and dash back. Strong legs and hips. Patient as a runner then can burst through a seam and go the distance for a touchdown. He finished his career as Penn State’s all-time rushing touchdown (43) and total touchdown (53) leader. Also the all-time all-purpose yards leader with 5538 yards. Saquon Barkley is clearly the top player in this draft and if he stays healthy he will be an annual Pro Bowl player and a future NFL Hall of Famer. The minute he is drafted, Barkley will be one of the top five backs in the league. 2017 stats: 1271 yds, 5.9 ypc, 18 TD, 54 rec, 632 yds, 11.7 ypr, 3 TD, 15-426 KOR, 28.4 avg, 2 TD. OSR:1/ 29. First round. (A-31 3/8, H-9 1/2, BP-29, SS-4.24).
3. Sam Darnold*
QB, USC
HT: 6033v |  WT: 221v |  40: 4.87v
3. NEW YORK JETS Third-year sophomore entry from Capistrano Beach, CA. Twoyear starter and team captain. Was red-shirted in 2015. Has a strong, sturdy athletic frame and the ability to throw on the move. Hard to believe but Darnold is the first USC quarterback to throw for 4000 yards in a season. His best game was in the 2017 Rose Bowl where he passed for 453 yards in a seesaw win over Penn State. Was named the MVP of the Pac-12 championship game after passing for 325 yards and two touchdowns versus Stanford. Demonstrated more accuracy in 2016 with experienced receivers hitting 67.2% of his passes. Delivers the ball accurately on predetermined spots out to the right or left. Really struggled with turnovers and bad decisions in 2017. He actually could have had several more interceptions but balls were dropped or just batted down. You win games by avoiding losing them and Darnold turned the ball over 37 times in 26 games. Not smooth or polished in the pocket. Footwork is awkward. Careless and sloppy with the ball. Throws into double coverage on a regular basis. Many of his receivers had to make great catches in the open field to keep drives going. There appeared to be a lot of miscommunication with the receivers in 2017. Inconsistent accuracy. Was more of a flash player than a consistent one last fall. Appears poised in the pocket but lacks ball security. When teams pressure him off his throwing spot he opens his hands and drops the ball. Holds the ball out in one hand most of the time. Has a long throwing motion and a weird delivery. Holds the ball down where it is easy to bat out of his hands. A build-up speed delivery. Has wasted motion with a little bit of a wind up. Needs work on mechanics from head to toe. Did not throw at the Combine. Ball speed is unknown. Will hold the ball too long in the pocket at times. Question if he has the feel for the rush. The former linebacker has toughness, but struggles with a functional quarterback aptitude. Concluded the last five games of his college career with six touchdown passes and three interceptions. Did not throw a touchdown pass versus UCLA or Ohio State. He needs a lot of time with the right coaches before he even gets on the field. The mental processes a quarterback must have are not NFL ready yet. At times he appears to be playing intramural football with a disregard for fundamentals. Needs to sync up his lower body with his arm. Forces too many balls into traffic. Lacks space awareness. Jameis Winston threw 18 interceptions as a college junior and is still turning the ball over. Will be over drafted on potential. 2017 stats: 303/480, 4143 yds, 63.1%, 26 TD, 13 INT, 82 yds rushing, 5 TD, 148.1 QB rating. Did not throw at Combine. OSR:7/18. First round. (A-31, H-9 3/8, SS-4.40, VJ-26.5).
4. Denzel Ward*
CB, Ohio State
HT: 5107v |  WT: 183v |  40: 4.30v
4. CLEVELAND Junior entry and first-year starter from Macedonia, OH. Spent most of his early career as a backup and saw very productive sub package work in 2016. Smooth fluid pedal with effortless change of direction. Outstanding transition in all directions. Very good lateral quickness with a burst to close. Sudden break on the ball with no wasted movement. Outstanding ball skills. Plays press coverage reacting to movement rather than controlling release with a jam. Fundamentally sound with eye discipline in man coverage. Maintains focus on receiver and mirrors cuts. Very good at locking down a receiver. Keeps inside leverage and is disciplined to reacting to a double move. Maintains cushion in off man and has a smooth transition to turn and run. Does a very good job in zone coverage with proper spacing on multiple routes in a zone. Skilled at zoning off and playing up to a shallow route. Height and frame is a slight concern projecting him versus big receivers in the NFL. Has had some trouble with the bigger receiver walling him off. Overall he is a solid cover corner with outstanding skill and technique. Has a lot of special teams’ experience and projects as a starter who can be an elite player. 2017 stats: 37 T, 2 TFL, 15 PBU, 2 BK, 2 INT. OSR:1/41. First round. (A-31 1/4, H8 3/4, VJ-39, SS-DNP).
5. Bradley Chubb
DE, NC State
HT: 6043v |  WT: 269v |  40: 4.67v
5. DENVER Three-year starter and two-time team captain from Marietta, GA. First-team All-America and All-ACC as well as the 2017 Hendricks Award and Bronko Nagurski Award winner. Productive finishing second with 25 tackles for loss and 10 sacks. Collected 22 tackles for loss in 2016 and added 9.5 sacks. He had six forced fumbles combined the past two years. Younger brother of Brandon Chubb of the Detroit Lions. Has good height, length, and bulk for the position. Good athletic ability with speed, explosiveness, quickness, and balance. Very good run defender who is gap disciplined and plays within the scheme. On the frontside he uses a good punch and presses the blocker with explosive play strength and quick hands to shed. On the backside he plays with good effort and has play speed to close. Very effective on slants and angle moves. Solid tackler but he struggles to come to balance and finish with a wrap tackle at times due to his high energy style of play. Must improve on playing the low cut blocks. High motor pass rusher. Has a good upfield burst to threaten the edge. Solid pass rush plan using both a club-rip, and a long arm move and has the reactionary athleticism to cross face when tackles overset. Usually runs a tight hoop but there are times he takes a wide track and take himself out of the play. He is a disruptive rusher. Active to get in the throwing lane and get hands up. Projects as a first year starting defensive end in a 4-3 scheme. Cousin to Nick Chubb, running back from Georgia. Has the talent to provide impact play. A future Pro Bowl player. 2017 stats: 73 T, 25 TFL, 10 sacks, 2 PBU, 9 QBH, 3 FF, 1 BK. Edge speed:left 2.11, right 1.89. OSR:5/23. First round. (A-34, H-9 7/8, BP-24, 10-1.66).
6. Quenton Nelson*
OG, Notre Dame
HT: 6050v |  WT: 325v |  40: 5.35e
6. COLTS The fourth-year junior from Holmdel, NJ red-shirted in 2014. He started at left guard for three straight years and ended his career as a unanimous All-America, the 34th in school history. He is competitive, intense, patient, athletic, and explosive in his play. The flexible and stout blocker locks up and controls his target. Moves his feet on contact and can root an anchor defensive lineman out of the running lane. This big man can really move. When he pulls he has good body control and recovery balance in space. He has also been noticed driving a defender 10-plus yards down the field. In today’s football, pass protection is the most important skill of an offensive lineman and this wide-bodied athlete has quickness, change of direction, and natural body control. Demonstrates attitude and aggression to engage initial contact with base, balance, and knee bend. Plays square to shadow a rusher and anchor a bull rush. He is smart and aware enough to help his tackle and center as needed. Will be a week one starter and is almost a sure thing to have a long and successful career. Did not run at Combine, his choice. First round. (A-33 3/4, H-10 3/8, BP-35, 10-DNP).

7. Josh Allen*
QB, Wyoming
HT: 6047v |  WT: 237v |  40: 4.78v
7. BUFFALO Junior entry from Firebaugh, CA who transferred from Reedley Junior College after one year. In 2015 saw action in two games then suffered a season-ending injury. Second-team All-Mountain West in 2016. Looks the part physically of an NFL quarterback. He is a good athlete, plays in a pro style offense, and can throw a ball through a cement wall from 50-yards away. Only completed one full year of competition without suffering an injury. In 2015 had a season ending injury to his right clavicle after two games and missed the Fresno State, San Jose State, and part of the Air Force game with a right shoulder injury. Flashes top skills. Flashes the ability to throw a frozen rope. Will take advantage of poor coverage. Will slide in the pocket. The big guy can extend plays and buy time for his receivers. He will flash the ability to sell a screen pass and hide the ball from the defense. Many times he throws better rolling outside rather than staying in the pocket. Appears to have feel in the pocket and side steps the rush. Generally stands strong. Steps up in the pocket to throw. Can break tackles with his strong lower body working through traffic. Accuracy and decision making are off. The right-hander will throw the ball back over the middle when rolling away. Does not zip the ball but floats it. Sometimes it appeared Allen tried to do too much last fall. Threw into double coverage on a regular basis. It appeared that he never got into rhythm. Every game he would have a series of indecisions, erratic passes, or have balls batted down. Question whether he can feel the rush. Overthrew a lot of passes the past two years. Misses the receivers high when they are wide open. When rolling left he doesn’t square his shoulders all the time then just throws the ball out of bounds. Usually makes his best throws outside the hashes but will hit the tight end on play action down the middle. Will make his inaccurate throws without pressure in his face - he just misses the receiver. Appears that his timing and touch are off and will force the ball into coverage. Struggles with ball placement. Really had problems when he played up against power five teams. Versus BYU (2016), Nebraska (2016), Iowa (2017), and Oregon (2017) Allen completed 65 of 128 passes, 50.8%, for 634 yards, three touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. Senior Bowl notes: Big mobile quarterback who had an uneven week of practice and his play on Saturday was a tale of his week and season in Laramie. He made some big time passes on vertical routes, but was inconsistent with accuracy and touch on the underneath and intermediate routes. He caught fire in the second half of the game and completed 9 of 13 passes for 158 yards and two touchdowns. A backup who may start with developmental time. 2017 stats: 152/ 270, 1812 yds, 56.3%, 16 TD, 6 INT, 204 yds rushing, 5 TD, 127.8 QB rating. Ball velocity 62 mph. OSR:1/18. First/second round. (A33 1/4, H-10 1/8, SS-4.40, VJ-33.5).
8. Roquan Smith*
LB, Georgia
HT: 6007v |  WT: 236v |  40: 4.53v
8. CHICAGO Junior entry from Montezuma, GA. The two-year starter is an instinctive inside linebacker who could project as a Will in most schemes. Excellent initial read and react with good footwork. Patient in read with a downhill shuffle and outstanding change of direction. Fits inside gaps with precision and can quickly redirect on cutbacks. Lacks great take-on ability due to a lack of bulk and can get knocked back. Sometimes he is looking for the ball and does not get his hands into the blocker quickly enough. Shows sound technique as he plays with knee bend and normally leads with his hands attacking blocks. Shows shed ability on the move. Good range in pursuit with proper angles to the ball. Makes plays sideline to sideline. Adjusts well moving downhill and laterally. Sound tackling skill showing knee bend and explosiveness into the tackle. Quickness at the snap as a blitzer with tiptop chase ability. Has trouble escaping an edge blocker if he doesn’t win at the snap. Shows elite pass cover ability in both zone and man. Can match up with a back showing good mirror ability and the speed to handle the vertical route. In zone does a good job reacting to pattern pressure and sees the threats and quarterback. Closes voids in the zone with discipline. An undersized prospect who should go in the upper half of the first round. 2017 stats: 137 T, 14 TFL, 6.5 sacks, 2 PBU, 8 QBH, 1 FF. OSR:5/22. First round. (A-32, H-10, BP-DNP, SS-DNP).
9. Mike McGlinchey
OT, Notre Dame
HT: 6077v |  WT: 309v |  40: 5.20e
9. SAN FRANCISCO Three-year starter from Philadelphia, PA. Started at right tackle for one year while eventual first round pick Ronnie Stanley manned the left side. After his departure, McGlinchey shifted over seamlessly and put in two years as the blind side protector. The two-time team captain ended his career with a consensus All-America honor. He is a big, wide, and physical presence who brings a refreshing, yet old school blue collar approach to the game. A bruiser who tries to stand out via advanced technique and physical play. Gets out of his stance quickly and ready to pounce. Hands are inside and ready to attack, as he is almost always the aggressor. Comfortable as an athlete. Reaches his point with an effective kick slide, makes sure his steps are short and choppy, and maintains his knee bend on contact. His mechanics are well practiced and consistent. As a run blocker, he is always trying to drive his man through the lane. Keeps his legs moving on contact and will keep his hips in the hole. Hustle, grit, and desire to win are always there. Doesn’t show overwhelming core strength nor does he look very comfortable adjusting to speed and quickness after initial contact. Reactions are delayed and his feet appear heavy at times. His lack of athleticism has been exposed when faced with some of his stiffer competition. There isn’t a natural sense of ability here, as everything looks manufactured and rehearsed which becomes a problem he must adjust on the fly. Has starter potential early on, but the ceiling is limited. At the very least, you know you are getting a kid who is passionate about the game and will come to work every day. Did not run at Combine, his choice. First round. (A-34, H-10, BP-24, 10-DNP).
10. Josh Rosen*
QB, UCLA
HT: 6040v |  WT: 226v |  40: 4.92v
10 - ARIZONA Junior entry and three-year starter from Manhattan Beach, CA. Has a showcase-ready passing posture from head to toe. A right-handed passer who played with a left knee brace. Loads of natural talent. Second-team All-Pac 12 and ranked number nine nationally in total offense with 329.1 yards per game. Rosen’s watershed game was the comeback over Texas A&M last fall where the Bruins turned a 4410 deficit into a 45-44 overtime win. He passed for over 400 yards in five games in 2018. The ex-Bruin holds school records for the most 300-yard games (17) and most consecutive games with a touchdown pass (14). Started all 30 games of his college career including 13 as a college freshman. Pinpoint accuracy with a quick release. The scouts on the Combine field during passing drills said there was a pop when he released the ball. After Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield, Rosen had the next strongest arm and velocity that was recorded in Indianapolis. Good body control to set up and throw quickly. Quick and balanced feet in the pocket. Keeps his feet alive and the ball high. He has a strong arm with quickness. Has a quick upload and release. Keeps his eyes down the field. Sees the field well. Rosen has experience taking snaps from under center and the past Bruin offensive coordinators all had NFL experience. Throws the back shoulder passes like he invented it. Stands tall in the pocket. Quickly processes information and gets from point A to point Z quickly. Understands what he is seeing. Cool in the pocket. Moves the safeties with his eyes. Accurate short, intermediate, and long. Does a good job of putting air under the deep ball. Similar to Baker Mayfield, he could have sued his receivers for nonsupport at times. The Bruins’ receivers had more drops than a volatile stock market. Steps towards his target. Always in a good athletic position with a slight knee bend. Rarely over strides. Good instincts and awareness. Poised in the pocket but pressure up the middle will throw him off his game. Not really an extemporaneous passer. Likes all his ducks in a row. Can hit a target on the move with a tight spiral, good ball placement. Not a running threat. Question intangibles and maturity to be a consistent winner. Has been outspoken on issues and is very thought provoking. Father is a surgeon. His mother a writer and editor. Some ball clubs may think he has a sense of entitlement. Is he coachable? Despite being an immensely talented quarterback, he has never really taken his talent to the next level in college. Plays with confidence but makes more than his share of bad decisions. Must be more consistent. Very undisciplined in his play at times. Needs to build up his body to take NFL hits. Durability is a major concern especially the concussions. Is he willing to pay the price to be a Super Bowl winning champion? Grades out as an eventual starter because of talent. Boom or bust. 2017 stats: 283/452, 3756 yds, 62.6%, 26 TD, 10 INT, -97 yds rushing, 2 TD, 146.9 QB rating. Ball velocity 59 mph. OSR:8/18. First round. (A-31 3/4, H-9 7/8, SS-4.28, VJ-31
11. Minkah Fitzpatrick*
S/CB, Alabama
HT: 6001v |  WT: 204v |  40: 4.49v
11.MIAMI Junior entry from Old Bridge, NJ. Three-year starter for the Tide. Versatile defender with experience at multiple positions in the secondary. Has played corner, nickel corner, nickel linebacker and safety. Shows skill at all spots. Quick and fluid with above average agility. Adjusts well moving downhill and is physical in run support. Plays the nickel spot with instincts, reactions, and skill. Takes on blocks with his hands and is quick to shed. Physical versus a stalk block. Has a unique ability for a defensive back to get off blocks with a variety of technique. Solid tackling skills. Takes good angles and leverage to the ball. Very aggressive. Shows excellent speed in the deep zones. He can occasionally get focused on an individual route and not see the route concept. Overall in zone is disciplined and the majority of the time shows the skill to read routes and the quarterback. Does a good job in the short zones as a nickel. Closes void areas quickly and can play underneath a deep route and break on the short route. Shows the speed to stay in phase versus a deep pattern at corner. He demonstrates smooth transitions and reactions on the ball. Physical in press with the ability to mirror cuts and stay in phase. Shows a sudden break on the ball with the ball in front of him. Has a knack for the big play interception, timing his break to catch it at the high point. Shows excellent blitz ability from the nickel spot and has a burst to close. Fitzpatrick checks all the boxes as a versatile defender who can excel at multiple spots on the field. He is an explosive athlete with good techniques and athletic ability. Will contribute on all special teams’ coverage units. 2017 stats: 60 T, 8 TFL, 1.5 sacks, 8 PBU, 3 QBH, 1 FF, 1 BK, 1 INT. BTR:left 4.69, right 4.71. OSR:10/41. First round. (A-31 1/4, H-9 3/8, VJ-33, SS-DNP).

12. Vita Vea*
DT, Washington
HT: 6040v |  WT: 347v |  40: 5.10v
12. TAMPA BAY Junior entry. One-and-a-half year starter from Milpitas, CA. Lines up at nose tackle and defensive end in the Huskies’ multiple defense. Was the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year. Also was the winner of the Morris Trophy as the top defensive lineman in the Pac-12 as voted on by offensive linemen in the league. Vea was the major factor in Washington leading the country in run defense. Two gap ability. Strong at the point of attack. An elite run defender with the ability to stack double teams. Doesn’t stay blocked. Gets jammed up on low blocks. Strong bull rush and also uses a club arm over move. Can stand up almost any blocker with a low center of gravity, hands inside, and is ready to make a play. Uses his strong and violent hands to manhandle a blocker’s arms. Pressures the quarterback up the middle with an almost unblockable bull rush. Explosive up the field. Has been known to drive an offensive guard into the backfield. Will hustle to the perimeter to make a play. Endurance is a question because he does play hard then has to take a play off at times. Needs to work on more pass rush moves and a plan for his rush. Struggles against low cut blocks and gets taken off his feet. A raw talent who needs technique work but has the ability and man strength to contribute early in his career. 2017 stats: 44 T, 5.5 TFL, 3.5 sacks, 4 PBU, 1 BK. OSR:2/22. First round. (A-32 5/8, H-10, BP-41, 10-1.78).
13. Da'Ron Payne*
DT, Alabama
HT: 6024v |  WT: 311v |  40: 4.96v
13. WASHINGTON Junior entry and two-year starter from Birmingham, AL. Earned All-SEC honors in 2017 and did his best imitation of an immovable force. An explosive athlete who has strength at the point of attack. Uses his arms and hands to control the blocker. He closes the inside running lanes with authority. Payne is mobile enough to string out the play and pursue to the sidelines. Good awareness to blocking schemes and combination blocks. Explosive off the ball just like he got hit in the britches by a shotgun full of salt. Quick enough to cross a blocker’s face and cause disruption in the backfield. Can stack a double team or get skinny and cause a hump for the back to run around. Has the full menu of hand use rushing the passer quickness, stab, punch, placement, extension, six-inch boxer’s punch, and assignment control. At times is almost unblockable. Plays square. Good change of direction. As a pass rusher Payne has an explosive upfield burst and upper body strength. Likes to use a club and clean himself off with an arm over or a rip. Also uses a push-pull move. Gets his hands up to force the quarterback to alter his throw. His eyes, hands, and feet are all in sync when putting heat on the quarterback. His inside pressure forces the passer off his spot. The former disruptive Tide star is a starting defensive tackle in any scheme and will dominate in the run game. Should be a sub package inside pass rushing Pro Bowl player. 2017 stats: 53 T, 1 TFL, 1 sack, 3 PBU, 8 QBH, 1 INT. Edge speed:left 1.97, right 1.97. OSR:9/22. First round. (A-33, H-9 3/8, BP-27, 10-1.66).

HT: 6057v |  WT: 264v |  40: 4.59v
14. NEW ORLEANS TRADE WITH GB Three-year starter from San Antonio, TX. Plays a standup outside linebacker. Will occasionally play with his hand down. Excellent height and length, with the ability to add another 20 pounds to his frame. Overall, very good athlete with speed, explosiveness, quickness, agility and balance. Solid run defender. On the front side he uses a good inside punch and his length to control blockers’ chest, and sheds easily. On the backside he is very disciplined to keep contain, but still closes the back door and makes a ton of plays running things down from behind. Very good pass rusher and pass rush plan. His primary move is a good bull rush where he uses his play strength and rare length to condense the pocket, but also wins with a long arm, chop-rip, and arm over. Has awareness to take the inside track when tackles overset. Has good bend around the edge to corner and finishes on the quarterback. Flashes pass cover ability running with a running back on a wheel route making a play on the ball. Has a rare combination of length, play strength, pass rush, effort, and toughness. A Pro Bowl talent whose best football is in front of him. Senior Bowl notes: Raw and inconsistent talent who had more good days than bad. A long and athletic pass rusher who stood up in a two-point stance where he is more comfortable than in a three-point stance with his hand on the ground. He played down inside at times and with his hands up blocking the quarterback’s vision. He routinely won his pass rush reps with both power and speed. Needs more of a variety of pass rush moves. 2017 stats: 55 T, 17 TFL, 8.5 sacks, 4 PBU, 8 QBH, 3 FF. Edge speed:left 2.40, right 2.09. OSR:3/ 23. First/second round. (A-33 5/8, H-9 1/8, BP-22, 10-1.64).
15. Kolton Miller*
OT, UCLA
HT: 6085v |  WT: 309v |  40: 4.98v
15. OAKLAND Junior entry from Roseville, CA who started 23 games over three years. Started five games in 2015 and 2016 respectively, with the latter being a result of a season-ending foot injury. Was entrusted with the left tackle position for all 13 games in 2017, protecting the blind side for one of the top pro quarterback prospects in this draft. Has high-level measurables and surprising movement skills for such a long-limbed athlete. Moves in space like a tight end. Also has a good amount of quick-twitched power. When he is accurate with his hands and times his punch well enough, his impact is felt. There are several plays where everything is lined up and the violence he can deliver from his hips through his hands can be devastating. A well-balanced athlete who is comfortable playing with a wide base while still maintaining good movement skills. Techniques and vital consistencies aren’t quite there yet, but he flashes elite ability. Needs to get stronger, especially from the waist down. Also lacks body control, often lunging too far forward and hinging at the hip. His hand techniques are often all over the place - too high, too wide, too low, which causes penalties and leaves him susceptible to getting beat on double moves. Won’t be ready for the NFL in year one, but there is an intriguing upside to him. OSR:1/38. First/second round. (A-34 1/8, H-10 3/4, BP-24, 10-1.72).
16. Tremaine Edmunds*
LB, Virginia Tech
HT: 6044v |  WT: 253v |  40: 4.55v
16. BUFFALO Junior entry from Danville, VA. Two-year starter with good length, production, and overall size for a linebacker. Projects at just about any linebacker position in any scheme. Was most often in the box for the Hokies. Very quick in his initial reaction and gets downhill into a gap with a decisive first step. Plays tight to the line and occasionally makes a wrong read. In rare occasions he can be over aggressive and take himself out of a play. Sudden to change direction with no wasted movement. Can redirect back into a play when out of position. Quick with his hands getting into a blocker. Stuns blockers with good knee bend to get separation. Sheds quickly working to the ball, rarely stays blocked. Has sideline to sideline range and takes good angles in pursuit. Solid in coverage with good technique in man and zone. Virginia Tech plays a lot of match coverage and Edmunds often covered a back out of the backfield and occasionally a tight end. Shows the ability to stay with a back and mirror cuts. Has the speed to cover deep. Good eye discipline keeping his focus on the receiver when matched up. Reacts quickly on the throw and can get in the throwing lane when in zone. Good awareness when playing zone showing a quick break on the throw. Very good blitz skill with quickness at the snap hitting a gap or blitzing off the edge. Shows an arm under move to get around the corner and has the speed to close. Hitting inside gaps he gets quick pressure up the middle. If used on the edge he will need to develop more technique as an edge rusher but has pass rush tools. Plays at a high level but still has upside. 2017 stats: 109 T, 14 TFL, 5.5 sacks, 2 PBU, 4 QBH, 3 FF. Edge speed:left 1.82, right 1.99. OSR:3/17. First round. (A-34 1/2, H-9 3/8, BP-19, SS-DNP).

FS/SS, Florida State
HT: 6016v |  WT: 215v |  40: 4.45v
17. CHARGERS Junior entry and two-year starter from Haines City, FL. Missed most of 2016 with knee injury. He is a uniquely gifted athlete with size and length along with a versatile skill set that is coveted by NFL teams. He can play deep half and third coverage with outstanding range along with good match-up skill on inside receivers and backs. Will also play in the box with linebacker responsibilities. Fluid movements with excellent agility and lateral movement. In deep coverage he has the range to get over the top or match up to a deep vertical route. He sometimes gets locked on a route when he needs to sense pattern pressure within a zone. Does an excellent job in the hybrid role close to the line. Very good in the short zones getting underneath the intermediate route and driving on the short throw in the flat. Shows match-up ability versus a slot or tight end with good mirror ability. Can be physical in run support with good take on ability using his hands to shed and work to the ball. Fits the alley well and tackles in space, very good preventing the cutback with good leverage on the ball. Will not always finish the tackle and at times absorbs the blow and barely hangs on or is run through. Excellent chase ability with good range across the field. Does not always hustle on the backside and has some quiet moments. Used often as an edge blitzer showing a burst to close on the quarterback. Creates havoc blitzing-making plays behind the line. James still has a lot of upside as there are some issues to correct. Has the tools to be an outstanding pro with the versatility to play multiple spots within a scheme. 2017 stats: 84 T, 5.5 TFL, 1 sack, 11 PBU, 4 QBH, 1 BK, 2 INT (1 TD). BTR:left 4.50, right 4.59. OSR:3/21. First round. (A33, H-9 1/2, VJ-40, SS-4.34).

18. GREEN BAY (From Seattle) Junior entry from Charlotte, NC. A two-year starter who only played in six games last season. Has experience in a wide variety of coverages including Cover 2, 4, press 4, 3, press and off man. As a hard corner he shows physical reroute ability with a quick strike with his hands. Maintains balance and can ride a receiver up the field. Very good zone defender with awareness and ability to react to multiple routes in the deep and short outside zones. Does a great job as a hard corner playing under the deep corner route and up to the flat route. Closes voids in zones extremely well and gets in on a lot of plays with the ball in the air. Sudden break and drive on the ball in front of him. Plays a lot of press and bail using a lateral run and lateral shuffle. Wastes steps in pedal at times and in transition but has a good recovery burst reacting to a cut or throw. Sudden break and drive with the ball in the air. In man shows some tightness in his turn and run and can get separated on a vertical route. Again speed and recovery ability to get back in phase is outstanding. Normally focus is on the receiver but occasionally will sneak a peek when out of phase and get beat over the top. Has good ball skills for the pass break and zone awareness puts him in great position. Solid in run support exploding into tackles. Plays off a block with good shed technique. Has some things to improve on but a solid NFL prospect. Will contribute on special teams as a punt returner and cover specialist. 2017 stats: 19 T, 1 TFL, 4 PBU, 1 INT. BTR:left 4.31, right 4.76. OSR:5/41. First round. (A-31 1/8, H-9 1/2, VJ-35, SS-3.98).

19. DALLAS Junior entry from Riggins, ID. One-year starter. Played in only six games in 2016 due to injuries. Has a lanky frame with some room to grow.

Reacts well to routes and sees the quarterback. Can work the seam, reroute, and zone off reacting to multiple routes. Does not get attracted to crossing routes out of his zone. Closes the voids quickly and reacts well on the throw. Quick getting into the throwing lane for the break up. Did not observe match-up situations but can carry an inside receiver up the seam. Good pass rush skill, knifing into gaps and closing upfield. Needs to develop technique versus a pass blocker. Has limited experience with only one full year as a starter. He already plays at a high level but still has tremendous upside as an every-down linebacker. Has versatility to play multiple linebacker positions. Will contribute on special teams’ coverage. 2017 stat: 141 T, 8.5 TFL, 4 sacks, 4 PBU, 1 QBH, 4 FF, 3 INT. Edge speed:left 1.94, right 2.08. OSR:1/22. Second/third round.

Good agility to get to the corner as a puller. Outstanding blocker at the second level, takes a laser track to the backer and has the balance to strike, drive, and sustain defenders. Has some orneriness to him and blocks to the echo of the whistle. Elite pass protector, excellent use of hands to win and control the defender’s chest. He gives up a little ground against big nose tackles, but overall has a very good anchor. Good lateral quicks to easily slide along the line of scrimmage. Excellent awareness against the blitz to locate the most dangerous man. When uncovered he looks to help out an offensive guard. Outstanding pass blocking production, has never given up a sack in his career. Has all the traits you look for in a center and is a Pro Bowl talent and day one starter. Season-ending injury in the seventh game of 2017. No running at Combine, left ankle. First/second round. (A-33 1/8, H-9 3/8, BP-26, 10-DNP).

OC/OG, Ohio State
HT: 6036v |  WT: 305v |  40: 5.20e
21.CINCINNATI Four-year starter from Austintown, OH. The durable center/guard Ironman has 55 consecutive career starts. He followed in the footsteps of former Buckeye and current starting center for the Minnesota Vikings, Pat Elflein, by moving from guard to center his senior year. The competitive Price makes the line calls and has a quick snap and step move. Plays square with a good knee bend and base to anchor a bull rush.

Smart and instinctive player who has good situational awareness. Gains position and sticks with his man. A mature and stable blocker who is productive and consistent. Will be a day one starter. Medical exclusion at Combine, tore his pectoral muscle bench pressing. Should be ready to go in the fall. Second/third round. (A-32, H-9 3/4, BP-DNP, 10-DNP).
22. Rashaan Evans
LB, Alabama
HT: 6017v |  WT: 232v |  40: 4.70v

23. Isaiah Wynn
OG, Georgia
HT: 6026v |  WT: 313v |  40: 5.10e
23- NEW ENGLAND Three-year starter from St. Petersburg, FL. Has started all but one game over his final three seasons. Even though he carries the typical build and body of a guard, Wynn shifted to left tackle as a senior and played admirably, earning first-team All-SEC and secondteam All-America honors. Does an excellent job of setting up with proper knee bend, hands up and inside, and a wide enough base. He absorbs contact with ease. As a run blocker, he delivers a violent pop out of his snap and is very accurate with his hands. His heavy mitts attack the numbers of his target and they stick while he drives his legs. He flashes the ability to pull, locate, and sustain his perimeter blocks. Plays with rare patience and knee bend as a pass protector. Plays the game with an attitude and will constantly play though the whistle. Will struggle to maintain his ground against powerful pass rushers. Needs more core strength. He is not a fit for every scheme, as he doesn’t always get enough movement off the ball but will rather stick to his target and be taken where the defender wants to go. He did however drive a defensive end for Kentucky 10 yards down the field. As a guard he will attack the second level more than he did as an offensive tackle. The athletic ability and techniques are there. He projects as an immediate starter inside at offensive guard. Medical exclusion at Combine, left shoulder. First/second round. (A33 3/8, H-8 1/2, BP-DNP, 10-DNP).
24. DJ Moore*
WR, Maryland
HT: 6000v |  WT: 210v |  40: 4.42v
24. CAROLINA Junior entry and three-year starter from Philadelphia, PA. Was voted Big-10 wide receiver of the year. An elite playmaker and competitor with the football in his hands. Fought through poor quarterback play to make a highlight reel worth of catches. Pound for pound very tough as an athlete. Shows special burst and acceleration off the line of scrimmage. Creates separation from defenders with his top end speed and short area quickness. Is an effective short to medium route runner when asked to do it. Strong set of hands. Natural hands catcher who snatches the ball from defender. Very quick and explosive off his feet when attacking the football in jump balls. Tracks the ball with elite concentration downfield, makes one-handed catches look simple. Very dangerous after the catch combining agility and power to become a threat to score every time he touches the football. Lacks route running nuances and savvy. Doesn’t always compete at running routes with focused emphasis. Will let defensive backs physically handle him downfield. Not very effective at using his body to shield defenders downfield relying on his athletic ability too much. Overall he is a tough, playmaking, dynamic slot receiver and return man with upside and long term potential. He caught passes in 33 consecutive games. Plays the game and sees things developing on the field at a very slow pace, making it look very easy to score at times. His ability to contribute on special teams right away make him an asset the minute he is drafted.His athletic ability and special talents with the football make him a potential star. 2017 stats: 80-1033, 12.9 ypr, 8 TD, 15-153 PR, 10.2 avg. OSR:2/45. First/second round. (A-31 5/8, H-9, VJ-39.5, SS-4.07).
25. Hayden Hurst*
TE, South Carolina
HT: 6044v |  WT: 250v |  40: 4.65v
25. BALTIMORE Junior entry and two-year starter from Jacksonville, FL. After a two year stint in minor league baseball with the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, Hurst walked onto the South Carolina program in 2015 and just one year later was setting school records for the tight end position. He finished his three-year career with 100 total catches and a first-team All-SEC honor in 2017. Will be 25 years old during his rookie season, but the well-developed and versatile tight end has more than enough left in the tank. His greatest attributes center around catching the ball. His hands have all the stick-em in the world, as he suffered just one drop over his career. Attacks the ball with his hands up and ready to squeeze it on contact. Very consistent ball skill mechanics. Plays with an ongoing motor and shows no hesitation in both lowering his shoulder after the catch and putting his body on the line over the middle. His toughness and grit are a plus. He lined up all over the field in the South Carolina offense and should be an every-down player at the next level. His power presence as a blocker is a few steps behind. He absorbs contact well, but doesn’t get enough movement in the run game. Needs to do a better job of driving his hands and feet along with more consistent technique. He may be a couple years older than most prospects, but he offers enough every-down upside to warrant a day two pick. 2017 stats: 44-559, 12.7 ypr, 2 TD. OSR:5/16. Second/third round. (A-32 3/4, H-9 3/4, VJ-31.5, SS-4.37).
26. Calvin Ridley*
WR, Alabama
HT: 6004v |  WT: 189v |  40: 4.45v
26. Junior entry and three-year starter from Coconut Creek, FL who is the most NFL ready receiver in the draft. He is a special blend of size, speed, and playmaking talent. A top level athlete who runs routes and plays the game with balance and body control. He is a polished route runner who has the ability to work himself open on all three levels of the route tree. He eats grass off the line of scrimmage when played in off man coverage. Does a great job of getting his head and body snapped back around on stop and hitch routes. Shows suddenness in and out of breaks creating noticeable separation. Tracks the ball effortlessly into his hands, plucking it out of the air. Has a significant catch radius utilizing his athletic ability to contort and adjust to make the most difficult of catches. Possesses a good catch and run ability and is a threat to score when hit in stride. His thin frame allows him to be jammed at the line of scrimmage versus good press man corners. He has had focus drops over his career. Tries to create a big play after the catch sometimes and fails, instead of heading north and south to get what yardage he can. Bigger stronger defenders in the NFL will have no problem taking him to the ground on first contact. He is a sure fire first round talent who will develop into a very consistent and reliable target. His incredible smooth and refined route running skills combined with his elite ability to create separation, make him a valuable asset in this league. Add those skills on top of his explosive speed and athletic ability and you have a potential star. 2017 stats: 63-967, 15.4 ypr, 5 TD. OSR:30/45. First round. (A-31 5/8, H-9 1/8, VJ-31, SS-4.41).
27. Rashaad Penny
RB, San Diego State
HT: 5110v |  WT: 220v |  40: 4.46v
27. SEATTLE One-year starter from Norwalk, CA. Made his name as a return man in 2015 and 2016, winning Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Year both years. Playing under the shadow of the program’s all time leading rusher Donnel Pumphrey, Penny slowly but surely showed that he is more than a return specialist. The light-footed, explosive straight-line runner is a threat to score every time he can get in space. Can be a tough ball carrier to bring down for defensive backs, as his size/speed combination is rare. Gouged Arizona State for 216 yards in 18 carries and Stanford for 175 yards on 32 carries in back-to-back weeks. A patient power runner who shuffles through the line or can slam the ball up inside on the goal-line. Has some slide and glide to his running repertoire. A four-down back with good vision to break the ball against the grain. Many times he doesn’t get touched until the second level. Concluded his career with five 200yard plus games. Was not asked to catch the ball much for the Aztecs, but showcased his talent at the Senior Bowl. Senior Bowl notes: Was as good as advertised demonstrating his power and strength. He is a smooth and fluid athlete who can run, catch, and block. The ex-Aztec will be a factor in the kickoff return game. Gets up the field quickly when he catches check down and underneath routes. He can make the low ball catch then can out-quick defenders in space. 2017 stats: 2248 yds, 7.8 ypc, 23 TD, 19 rec, 132 yds, 7.0 avg, 2 TD, 2-70 PR, 35.0 avg, 1 TD, 17-521 KOR, 30.7 avg, 2 TD. OSR:8/29. Second/third round. (A-31 1/4, H-9 1/4, BP-13, SS-DNP).
28. Terrell Edmunds
SS, Virginia Tech
HT: 6004v |  WT: 217v |  40: 4.46v
28. PITTSBURGH Junior entry and three-year starter from Danville, VA. Brother is Trumaine Edmunds. Good size and toughness for the position. Virginia Tech plays a lot of quarters, Cover 3, and man coverage and Edmunds is often close to the line. Even in quarters his alignment is often within eight yards. Also plays the deep high safety at times. At his best in the box as he has linebacker-like instincts. Shows very good change of direction and takes good angles to the ball. Top level range in pursuit, finds the alley and gets in on a lot of plays. Physical take-on ability on the edge showing the strength to battle tight ends. Uses his hands and arms to get separation. Can be overaggressive at times and overrun the play. As a deep safety he gets downhill to the ball showing good tracking ability. In coverage he is at his best as a short flat defender with the ability to run with a slot or tight end up the seam. Shows good match-up ability and can cover most tight ends and slot receivers. Has mirror ability and speed to stay in phase up the field. Smooth transitions and break on the ball. At times does not react to a cut in a zone as he can get caught staring in the backfield. Can get distracted by a shallow route with a deep route attacking his zone. His main role may be in sub packages as a nickel linebacker. Should have a big role on special teams. 2017 stats: 59 T, 2.5 TFL, 1.5 sacks, 4 PBU, 1 QBH, 2 INT. OSR:4/21. Fourth/fifth round. (A-32 3/4, H-10 1/2, VJ-41.5, SS-DNP).
29. Taven Bryan*
DT, Florida
HT: 6050v |  WT: 291v |  40: 5.05v
29. FLORIDA Junior entry from Casper, WY. After a three year career on the field that saw him start 13 total games, Bryan was one of the surprise entries initially. Upon further review, the dynamic athletic skill set at a very respectable size for interior defenders fits in well with the multi-look defensive fronts of the NFL. A son of a former Navy SEAL, Bryan plays the game as hard as anyone on the field at any given point. His initial pop out of his stance is quick and violent. Gets into the blocker before he is set up, consistently earning that advantage upon engagement. Has easy bend in his lower body, allowing him to play low and fast, making very tough for a blocker to get his hands on accurately. Has developed rush moves to rely on when he needs them. Quick to read and react. He excels at adjusting on the fly. Once in space he can outrun almost every interior defensive lineman in this draft. Has the movement ability of a tight end and will pursue to the sidelines with reckless abandon. When it comes to defending the inside run, he can be moved by power blockers. Struggles to maintain his ground as a stay at home defender. Doesn’t have the body type for every down duty inside. For a team looking for more athleticism inside but doesn’t give up everything in the size and strength department, Bryan can be their guy. His motor and ability to make pass blockers uncomfortable will be sought after, but he may not be an every-down guy. 2017 stats: 40 T, 6 TFL, 4 sacks, 3 QBH. Edge speed:left 1.85, right 1.90. OSR:3/22. Second/third round. (A-32 3/4, H-9 3/4, BP-30, 10-1.73).
30. Mike Hughes*
CB, Central Florida
HT: 5101v |  WT: 189v |  40: 4.50v
30. MINNESOTA Junior entry from New Bern, NC. First-team corner and second team return specialist in the AAC. One-year starter who transferred from Garden City Community College. Good initial reactions with a quick smooth pedal when backed off. Very quick feet. Solid in press coverage with a physical jam to disrupt a receiver off the line. Shows the patience to ignore the first move away from his leverage. Rarely beat off the line in press. Mirrors cuts well and is solid in transition. Sudden break and drive on the quick throw in front of him. Has a burst out of his break in all directions. Fluid turn and run both pressed and backed off. Normally maintains cushion and times his turn well. Reacts to double moves and can quickly recover in the rare instance he oversteps a cut. Good zone awareness seeing threats. Shows the speed to run with vertical routes and stays in phase with good eye discipline keeping his focus on the receiver. Good ball skills getting a hand to the catch point. Not a physical tackler but has good fundamentals and drives through tackles with knee bend. Can get dragged at times but rarely misses. Solid player who has some versatility to play corner and nickel in the right scheme. Also has top flight return skills. 2017 stats: 49 T, 11 PBU, 1 FF, 1 BK, 4 INT (1 TD), 14-233 PR (1 TD), 20-635 KOR (2 TD). BTR:left 5.07, right 4.94. OSR:8/41. Second/ third round. (A-30 7/8, H-8 3/4, VJ-35.5, SS-4.13).
31. Sony Michel
RB, Georgia
HT: 5105v |  WT: 214v |  40: 4.57v
31 NEW ENGLAND Rotational starter for three years with Nick Chubb. A two-year captain from Plantation, FL. When he arrived on campus, eventual first round pick Todd Gurley ruled the backfield. His freshman year was uneventful, seeing the field in mop up situations and dealing with an injury that sidelined him for a few games. Once Gurley left for the NFL, it was Nick Chubb time. The 2015 season was supposed to be his takeover of the Georgia backfield but a horrific knee injury halfway through the season closed his door, but opened one up for Michel who ended up winning the team offensive MVP award that year, rushing for 1161 yards and catching 26 passes. While Chubb came back strong in 2016, Michel proved he was more than worth his fair share of carries. A healthy debate can take place surrounding who is the better NFL prospect. Michel is a hardnosed, overly aggressive runner with an angry style that rarely goes down on initial contact. Can get his pad level low and drive his feet through tacklers, always wanting more. There is a sense of urgency to his running style, a constant state of hunger. For such a thick back, he shows the late wiggle to avoid hits, which allows him to fall forward and gain extra yards. A reactionary runner but he lacks some of the natural vision and easy instincts pre-snap. Fails to see the initial running lanes and will often find himself playing catch up, trying to create on his own instead of taking what the defense gives him. Should get on the field early in his NFL career with his ability to pass protect and catch the ball out of the backfield. Michel has averaged more yards per carry than Chubb each of the past three seasons. The former USA Today Florida Player of the Year may have the edge over Chubb in his long term NFL prospects. 2017 stats: 1227 yds, 7.9 ypc, 16 TD, 9 rec, 96 yds, 10.7 ypr, 1 TD. OSR:7/29. Second/ third round. (A-31 1/4, H-9 1/8, BP-22, SS-4.21).
32. Lamar Jackson*
QB/WR, Louisville
HT: 6022v |  WT: 216v |  40: 4.55e
32. BALTIMORE Junior entry and three-year starter from Pompano Beach, FL who won the Heisman Trophy in 2016. In an ‘off’ 2017 season, Jackson still finished third in the Heisman voting and won the ACC Player of the Year Award. His production over the past two years reached historic levels. He may have been a victim of expectations that were too high for anyone to reach this past season, but there is no hiding his progress as a passer has been slow. Too often he is found misfiring, misreading, or misdiagnosing. Quarterbacks that look to run as often as Jackson simply don’t last so he must become a significantly better passer. Will need time to sit, learn, and add some mass to his frame. If he applies himself and looks to clean up his throwing, he could be as dangerous as any player in the league. Explosive ability with the ball in his hands that can cause any defense to adjust their approach. Has game breaking speed in the open field that will not be caught from behind. Has the rare ability to simply run faster than whomever is chasing him. Has a quick, explosive release. Ball snaps out of his hand with just a flick of the wrist. Plenty of arm strength to make all of the throws. Can put the ball on a line and fit it into tight windows. Creates opportunities by himself and will make a broken play into a big play, whether the run or pass. Too many missed targets on simple, borderline easy throws. Gets wild-high due to poor footwork and a lower body that he doesn’t always engage. Too quick to try and escape the pocket to make things happen. Pocket presence and awareness isn’t natural to him. Too dependent on running. Needs to do a better job of keeping his eyes downfield. 2017 stats: 254/430, 3660 yds, 59.1%, 27 TD, 10 INT, 1601 yds rushing, 18 TD, 146.6 QB rating. Ball velocity 49 mph. Did not work out at Combine, his choice. First/second round. (A-33 1/8, H-9 1/2, SS-DNP, VJ-DNP).
33. Will Hernandez
OG, UTEP
HT: 6023v |  WT: 327v |  40: 5.19v
Four-year starter from Las Vegas, NV. Lined up at left guard in the UTEP offense. Has solid height and a wide, sturdy frame. Overall, an athlete with good quickness and play speed. Flashes explosiveness, and plays with good balance. Very good pass protector. Has a powerful punch, gets good extension, and has an outstanding anchor to sit back and mirror.
34. Harold Landry
OLB, Boston College
HT: 6023v |  WT: 252v |  40: 4.67v
Three-year starter from Spring Lake, North Carolina plays both in a two and three point stance on the edge of the defense. Rarely drops into coverage but has enough athleticism to project to short zone flat coverage. Plays very quick at the snap with a good motor. Hustles in pursuit and is a good chase player. Excellent use of hands to stun and keep blockers off him. Good shed ability, disengages quickly and works to the ball. Will get upright at times but normally plays at a good pad level maintaining leverage on the blocker and the ball. Plays the run well with good agility on the edge and the ability to make plays in space. Tackles well. Powerful at the point of attack. Holds up against strong blockers with good leg bend. Productive pass rusher with a variety of moves. Nonstop hustle helps his cause as he will make plays with second effort as the quarterback steps up or scrambles.
35. Ronnie Harrison*
FS, Alabama
HT: 6020v |  WT: 207v |  40: 4.55e
Harrison is from Tallahassee, Florida has good size and length for the position showing NFL athletic ability and speed. He plays over the top coverage with good range and proper angles to the ball. Very good in zone coverage in both deep and flat coverage. Will rotate to the short flat and occasionally match up with a back or TE. Demonstrates top level man skill to mirror cuts and stay with vertical routes. Flashes ability in run support with downhill tracking ability. Needs to be more consistent tackling as he will not bend and wrap up.
35. Sam Hubbard*
DE, Ohio State
HT: 6053v |  WT: 270v |  40: 4.75e
Junior entry and two-year starter from Cincinnati, OH. A hell bent for leather competitor who was second-team All-Big 10 and an academic All-America honoree. Finishes long and short pursuit. Pushes the pocket from the outside in the Buckeyes’ NASCAR package. Contain and technique conscious. Plays with leverage to walk an offensive tackle back to the quarterback. A disruptive and relentless player who book-ended two strong seasons. Plays both standing up and with his hand in the dirt in a four man front.
36. Connor Williams*
OT, Texas
HT: 6050 |  WT: 320 |  40: 5.25
Heading in to the 2017 season, Williams was tabbed as the top lineman in the class after Freshman All American 2015 and All American 2016 seasons, respectively. The thick, powerful, yet graceful athlete checked all the boxes when it came to franchise left tackle prospects. However just a few games in to his junior year, Williams suffered a knee sprain and missed the majority of the season. He did return for the final two regular season matchups, but he left 2017 with more questions than answers. Mechanically he shows a great first few steps as a run blocker. He fires out low and fast with his hands ready to bench press his target on contact. There is a sudden jolt seen in the defender when Williams really squares him up. In pass protection, he is patient. He lets the action come to him and usually times his contact well. He can absorb a bull rush with ease. Williams is a very tough guy to beat in a true one on one situation.His knee iinjury that did not require surgery is a concern.
37. James Daniels*
OC, Iowa
HT: 6033v |  WT: 306v |  40: 5.20e
Junior entry from Warren, OH. Two-year starter in Iowa’s pro style zone scheme offense. A long-torso athlete with a thick lower body and long arms. A big guy who can run and execute blocks on the perimeter. Gets push in the run game. Experienced at both the conventional and shotgun snaps.
38. Josh Jackson*
CB, Iowa
HT: 6003v |  WT: 196v |  40: 4.56v
There may not be a player in the entire class that did as much as Jackson did with only 14 career starts. After playing the nickel role in 2016, Jackson stepped in to the starting lineup this past fall in replacement of Desmond King who left for the NFL. In his 13 games, he led the nation with 8 interceptions and 26 passes defended. He was tested a lot and he passed with flying colors. Jackson carries the desired length for the position with a wiry frame that is fully capable of enough long speed and quick twitch movement underneath. The former wide receiver plays the ball exceptionally well. His production was no fluke, he breaks on the ball as if he were the target. He is very good at forecasting throws and reacting with fluidity. If the ball is anywhere near him, he is going to get his hands on it.
39. Mike Gesicki
TE, Penn State
HT: 6054v |  WT: 247v |  40: 4.56v
Three-year starter from Manahawkin, NJ. After a high school career that saw him dominate across the board in three sports (football/ basketball/volleyball), Gesicki had two years in a broken Penn State offense. Things started to turn around in 2016, as he combined for 105 catches for 1242 yards and 14 touchdowns.
39. Derrius Guice*
RB, LSU
HT: 5104v |  WT: 224v |  40: 4.52v
Guice runs like he's got something to prove. Runs hard in close quarters.Puts his head down, lowers his pads and gets the tough two and three yard runs. A patient runner that steps through traffic, jump cuts and drives his legs on contact. He may be best on the perimeter where his sharp cuts leave defenders grasping air. Packs a punch on contact. Tallied 2638 rushing yards and 26 rushing touchdowns the past two years in a rotation basis.Good vision and lateral quickness.
40. Maurice Hurst
DT, Michigan
HT: 6012v |  WT: 292v |  40: 4.90e
First-year starter from Westwood, MA who has played in a rotation his first three years. The explosive interior run stuffer lines up at 0, 1, 2, and 3 technique in Michigan’s multipersonnel defense. Has below average height and a small lower body for the position. Overall has very good athletic ability with great explosiveness, good play speed and change of direction. Solid run defender. Has below average lower strength to anchor, and gets moved versus double teams. At his best as a penetrator or in backside pursuit where he finishes with good burst and effort. Chases the ball downfield. Very good pass rusher, has an explosive upfield burst and likes to work an edge. Very quick hands and likes to use either a club/arm over or club/rip.
40. Mason Rudolph
QB, Oklahoma State
HT: 6045v |  WT: 236v |  40: 4.92v
Fourth-year senior from Rock Hill, SC who finished atop the program’s major career passing ranks. After finishing 2016 as the only player to throw for 4,000 yards with less than five interceptions, He has the traditional NFL body and makeup of an NFL starter. Tall, strong, and comfortable in the pocket. Very accurate all over the field that has the proper blend of touch and zip on his passes underneath. Consistently sets his receivers up for postcatch success, leading them into space and throwing them open. At least a part of Rudolph’s production can be attributed to easy throws.

40. Dallas Goedert
TE, South Dakota State
HT: 6044v |  WT: 260v |  40: 4.77v
Fifth-year senior and three-year starter from Britton, SD. Record setting All-America who has taken over the FCS like a man among boys. His 92 catch/1123 yard season in 2016 had glimpses of Travis Kelce, looking too fast for linebackers and too big for safeties to cover. He has the flare for the dramatic, routinely making one handed catches, leaping above defenders in traffic, and barreling over potential tacklers after the catch. His size and athleticism are hard to find, but his ball skills are what make him a special standout. Has a unique ability to adjust low, behind and high showing competitive toughness in traffic. Has the contact balance to complete the catch with defenders draped around him. The Jackrabbit tight end has catch transition quickness and immediately turns into a runner where he has excellent run strength and contact balance and will use a stiff arm to finish.
40. Isaiah Oliver*
CB, Colorado
HT: 6002v |  WT: 201v |  40: 4.52v
Has good size for the position. Solid press corner that can be physical with receivers at the line. Mirrors cuts well and can stay in phase on the deep vertical. Some hitch in transitions at times but shows good recovery ability and body control. Closes ground quickly on passes in front of him. Good off hand jam, combining strength with balance as he re-routes a receiver. Good turn and run with good eye discipline in man cover. Keeps his focus on the receiver and has good hands for the break up. Can be a lockdown corner and usually drew opponents best receiver.

41. Rasheem Green*
DT, USC
HT: 6042v |  WT: 275v |  40: 4.75
Junior entry and two-year starter from Los Angeles, CA. Played in every game for three years and earned first-team All-Pac 12 honors. Put together back-to-back strong seasons collecting 98 tackles over two years. Graded out as the number one defensive tackle athletically at the Combine. A disruptive presence at both defensive tackle and defensive end.
44. Anthony Miller
WR, Memphis
HT: 5111v |  WT: 201v |  40: 4.50e
Two-year starter from Memphis, TN who missed 2014 with an injury. Finished career as the most decorated wide receiver in Tiger history. Plays the game with a competitive spirit. He is an elite playmaker when the ball is in the air and game-changing player who was clutch throughout his career. Competes with a strength to his game that is a little reminiscent of Steve Smith Jr. Panthers/Ravens.
45. Carlton Davis*
CB, Auburn
HT: 6010v |  WT: 206v |  40: 4.55v
The cornerback spot is one of the prime positions in football and if a true lockdown cover man is available at the top of the draft, he will be in the top five overall discussion. In a cornerback class that is very muddy right now in terms of where they rank and project, Auburn’s junior Carlton Davis has as good a chance as anyone to be the top one. The three-year starter is quietly the best player on one of the most dominant defenses in the country. Opposing quarterbacks hate to look his way, as seen with the minimal passes thrown in his direction week after week.
At 6’1 with long arms and upper tier speed, Davis is a cornerback with a ton of range. His reach-radius has been the trend at the position that scouts and coaches alike are always looking for. There is more to him than his size, however. Davis is a very smooth turn and run athlete who can stop, redirect, and burst after diagnosing what his man is doing. For such a high-hipped build, he has plus agility. When he gets matched up in press coverage, the initial jab is powerful enough and he times it very well with his footwork and hip movement. In addition to his ability to factor against the pass, Davis is a plus run defender who will not hesitate to take on a physical downhill ball carrier.
46. Christian Kirk*
WR/RS, Texas A&M
HT: 5103v |  WT: 201v |  40: 4.46v
The junior has caught at least 2 passes in all 39 games of his career and has 7 return touchdowns on his resume (6 PR/1 KR). While his receiving production took a hit (71 catches down from 80+ each of the past 2 years), there are route running and ball skill tool sets that can make him a dangerous weapon right away in the NFL.
Kirk has top tier speed once he gets into the open field, he is a guy that won’t be caught from behind. The burst he shows from a stand still is what makes that speed incredibly dangerous to the opposition. He can go 0-60 as fast as anyone but there is also a ton of wiggle and agility to his game. He can stop and change direction at the snap of a finger. Kirk may not be the biggest or strongest, but he plays a physical brand. He is tough in traffic and will compete hard for the ball. Combine that with outstanding athleticism and he can factor from any receiver position.
Kirk will have stretches where he disappears. He can be beat up at the point of attack if he doesn’t pay attention to his footwork and spacing. At that size, it could be a lasting problem for him in the NFL. Kirk relies more on straight-line opportunities and when it comes to comparing him to other receivers at his size in the league, the looseness in his hips isn’t on the same level. He appears to be more manufactured as a route runner at this point and will need to improve across the board if he is going to be anything more than a slot receiver that can help the return game.
47. Hayden Hurst*
TE, South Carolina
HT: 6044v |  WT: 250v |  40: 4.65v
Junior entry and two-year starter from Jacksonville, FL. After a two year stint in minor league baseball with the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, Hurst walked onto the South Carolina program in 2015 and just one year later was setting school records for the tight end position. He finished his three-year career with 100 total catches and a first-team All-SEC honor in 2017.
48. Harrison Phillips*
DT, Stanford
HT: 6032v |  WT: 307v |  40: 5.20e
Junior entry and two-year starter at nose tackle in the Cardinal 3-4 defense. From Omaha, NE. Was a two-year all-conference mention in the Pac 12 and made some All-America teams this past fall. Was the 2013 Nebraska Gatorade Player of the Year. The long-armed, strong-handed defender led his team in tackles in 2017. The quicker than fast tackle has above average athletic ability, explosiveness, and knee bend. Quick to read and react to blocking schemes
49. Courtland Sutton*
WR, Southern Methodist
HT: 6033v |  WT: 218v |  40: 4.55v
Sutton is an outside receiver who was a first-team all-conference selection last fall. A strong thickly built athlete who can be physically imposing in both the run and pass games. Has average acceleration off the line of scrimmage. Uses strong upper body to beat defenders in press man. Has suddenness on stop routes considering his size. Creates separation downfield with body positioning and strength on routes.
51. Mark Andrews*
TE, Oklahoma
HT: 6051v |  WT: 256v |  40: 4.67v
Fourth year junior entry from Scottsdale, AZ. The two-year starter has fought through the struggles of type 1 diabetes and a few nagging injuries. The end result being named the nation’s top tight end via the John Mackey Award and first-team All-America honors in 2017. Andrews has been a key part to the high-powered Oklahoma offense and ascent of quarterback Baker Mayfield’s national status.
52. James Washington
WR, Oklahoma State
HT: 5110v |  WT: 213v |  40: 4.51v
Four-year starter and two-time team captain from Stamford, TX. Had an incredibly productive career accumulating 226 receptions, 4472 receiving yards, 19.8 yards per catch, and 39 touchdowns as well as earning All-America honors. A good athlete with electric feet, quickness, balance, and strong hands. Has long arms that give him some deceptive length to his catch radius. Good release technique, winning with footwork and acceleration. A special route runner who gets his chest down in and out of breaks with a swivel-like action snapping his chest back around to the quarterback.
53. Kerryon Johnson
RB, Auburn
HT: 5114v |  WT: 213v |  40: 4.50v
Junior entry and two-year starter from Huntsville, AL. After winning the Mr. Alabama award in high school in addition to an all-state nomination in basketball, Johnson had a decorated career for Auburn that got better with each season. After splitting backfield duties for two years, he took over the reins last fall, leading the SEC in rushing. There aren’t many backs who have this kind of skill set and mental approach to the game.
54. DJ Chark
WR, LSU
HT: 6027v |  WT: 199v |  40: 4.39v
Started 15 games over the past two years. From Alexandria, LA. Exceptionally fast, lean, and tall homerun threat receiver. Had the fastest 40 time and vertical jump of all receivers at the Combine. His speed, size, and jumping ability make him a challenge for defenders. Chews into defenders’ cushions off the line of scrimmage with smoothness and easy looking acceleration. Defensive backs respect his speed looking to break their backpedal early. Has a savvy double move set that his elite speed helps him sell.
55. Nick Chubb
RB, Georgia
HT: 5107v |  WT: 227v |  40: 4.52v
Four-year rotation starter with Sony Michel. From Cedartown, GA. Only Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker has rushed for more career yards at Georgia and in the SEC than Chubbs’s 4769 yards. Natural vision and patience. Can feel where the defense is, and is not. Has the sturdy base to take hits as he shifts his way through traffic without being knocked off his intention. Balance and core strength are top tier.
56. Ronald Jones ll
RB, USC
HT: 5110v |  WT: 205v |  40: 4.48v
Third year junior from McKinney, TX who has led USC in rushing each of the past three seasons. First-team All Pac 12 in 2017, second-team in 2016. Leaves the Trojans’ program as the number five all-time leading rusher. Former track athlete with easy speed and burst. He can go from 0 to 60 with just a few steps but also has the ability to stop and cut at the snap of a finger. Will move like he is on ice skates. Ran a 4.48 on his pro day 4/5/18 Recovered from hamstring strain, ran a 4.69 at Combine.
57. Da'Shawn Hand
DT, Alabama
HT: 6035v |  WT: 297v |  40: 4.85v
One-year starter from Woodbridge, VA who played in 50 games. Second-team All-SEC. A talented athlete with long arms and big hands to control a blocker. Can anchor a double team and hold his ground. Can stack and shed. Good speed for a multiple alignment player on the defensive line. Played both defensive end and defensive tackle in Alabama’s multiple defensive scheme. His best position may be as a three technique upfield penetrator.
58. Brian O'Neill
OT, Pittsburgh
HT: 6067v |  WT: 297v |  40: 4.83v
Junior entry and three-year starter in a pro style offense from Wilmington, DE. He stepped onto the Pittsburgh campus as a 235pound tight end in 2014. After red-shirting his first year, he made the full time move to offensive tackle via injuries to other players just a couple months before the 2015 season. Went on to start 12 games that year and never looked back. Started at right tackle in 2016 and made the move to left tackle last fall, earning first-team All-ACC honors. The former high school basketball star put his rare athletic ability on display over his three years on the field, recording two rushing touchdowns and running routes on trick plays.
59. Braden Smith
OG, Auburn
HT: 6062v |  WT: 315v |  40: 5.21v
Four-year starter from Olathe, KS. After being the most recruited guard in the nation out of high school, Smith went on to a successful four year career for Auburn that saw him finish as a 2017 AllAmerica. Over his career, he has played both guard spots and has seen snaps at tackle as well. With his versatile skill set and the body that can handle both roles, the hybrid inside/outside blocker could project anywhere.
60. Malik Jefferson
IB, Texas
HT: 6022v |  WT: 236v |  40: 4.56v
Junior entry and three-year starter from Mesquite, TX. After being named the nation’s top linebacker out of high school in 2014, Jefferson surged onto the scene as a freshman All-America. His career ended apart from the sky high expectations placed on him as he suffered through a few nagging injuries and never quite met the hype. However he was far from a letdown. He earned second-team All-Big 12 honors in 2016 and second-team All-American honors in 2017.
61. Lorenzo Carter
OB, Georgia
HT: 6047v |  WT: 250v |  40: 4.53v
Two-year starter from Norcross, GA. Tall angular build with long arms. Most often on the edge of defense in a two-point stance. Spent some time backed off inside and as a hand-on-the-ground edge rusher. Quick at the snap shooting his hands to gain separation from a blocker. Has shed ability but could be more violent with his strike and shed as he is occasionally hung up on a block. Does a good job riding an edge blocker and is tough to get around.
62. Tim Settle
DT, Virginia Tech
HT: 6026v |  WT: 329v |  40: 5.39v
Junior entry from Manassas, VA. Has just one season of starting experience. In that one year, however, Settle earned second-team All-ACC honors and flashed dominance and elite power presence. The top heavy, quick footed tackle will be attractive to all schemes, as his tool set is very versatile and NFL ready. The skills of the position still come across raw, but nobody can deny the upside here.
63. Equanimeous St. Brown
WR, Notre Dame
HT: 6046v |  WT: 214v |  40: 4.48v
Junior entry and two-year starter from Anaheim, CA. An inside and outside receiver who has all of the speed, size and strength attributes NFL teams look for. Has long arms and a big strong frame. His father was notably a two-time Mr. Universe bodybuilder and his younger brother is a five star recruit out of high school. St. Brown’s long deceptive stride eats defenders’ cushions off of the line of scrimmage. Has long speed and is extremely athletic.
64. Donte Jackson*
CB, LSU
HT: 5104v |  WT: 178v |  40: 4.32v

Finished his track career as one of the top sprinters in the nation, both as an individual and as part of the 4x100 relay team. On the gridiron, he was a standout among a very talented and deep secondary. Proved to be more than an athlete that plays football.
65. Tyrell Crosby
OT, Oregon
HT: 6045v |  WT: 309v |  40: 526v
Four-year starter from Henderson, NV with experience on both sides. Got on the field as a freshman because of injuries to players ahead of him on the depth chart. Started nine games and led the team in pancake blocks. After starting every game in 2015, he was ready for the national spotlight in 2016 but only played three games due to a foot injury. Came back strong last fall and started every game at left tackle. He is thick and long with credible power and strength.
66. Marcus Allen
FS, Penn State
HT: 6021v |  WT: 215v |  40: 4.52v
Four-year starter from Upper Marlboro, MD. Has good size for the position along with physical and mental toughness.

Upon contact, he can knock a defender’s helmet back and get movement off the line.
68. Amani Watts
FS, Texas A&M
HT: 5104v |  WT: 202v |  40: 4.48v
Four-year starter from Forney, TX. He flashes playmaking ability with the knack for the turnover. Has fluid hips and smooth movements with very good change of direction. Smooth backpedal in the deep zones with the ability to flip his hips to get to a route. Opens up well in deep coverage and can undercut a route to get to the ball.

Consistent over his Wolfpack career with more starts on defense (44) than any other player. The physical tackle also collected 185 stops in his four-year career. A good athlete with speed, quickness, agility, and balance. Can stack the run on the frontside and chase for big plays on the backside. Extremely sudden with his big and strong hands.

71. Chukwuma Okorafor
OT, Western Michigan
HT: 6060v |  WT: 320v |  40: 5.29v
Three-year starter from Southfield, MI. Still considered a raw prospect when it comes to lifelong experience with the game (moved to the US in 2010), he possesses a top tier tool set. After starting on the right side in 2015, he manned the blind side for the past two seasons. Earned first-team all conference honors the past two years in addition to a few All-America honors as a senior. Has the ideal length and girth for an NFL lineman with plenty of functional strength to work with.
72. Duke Dawson
CB, Florida
HT: 5105v |  WT: 197v |  40: 4.50v
Two-year starter from Cross City, FL. Nickel corner prospect who shows physical play and zone awareness. First-team All-SEC pick and led the team with four interceptions. Plays the short zones well reacting to multiple routes and getting in the throwing lane. Occasionally matches up outside as a press corner. Has a good closing burst reacting on the throw. Shows some tightness in the hips as he will struggle to redirect at times.
73. Kalen Ballege
RB, Arizona State
HT: 6014v |  WT: 228v |  40: 4.52v
Played in 47 games over his career. From Peyton, CO. A three-down back who was underused and undervalued in college. Quick in and out of his cuts. A physical specimen who combines power and speed. As skilled a pass receiver as he is a downhill hammer type runner. Quick feet to slide into the hole. Gets yards after contact. Good running skills, instincts, and vision. Ran well at the Combine for a big back. Impressive at the Senior Bowl where his frame, athleticism, and versatility were on display all week.
74. Kevin Toliver ll
CB, LSU
HT: 6020v |  WT: 192v |  40: 4.55v
Junior entry from Jacksonville, FL. Part time starter during his three years at LSU. Has struggled through injury issues and has been suspended due to off-field problems. Has imposing size and length for a corner. Played both as a press and off-corner. Physical at the line with a good off hand or two hand jam. Rarely gives up leverage and shows a smooth turn and run. Mirrors cuts off the line and is normally patient ignoring moves away from leverage.
75. Orlando Brown
OT, Oklahoma
HT: 6077v |  WT: 345v |  40: 5.83v
Junior entry and three-year starter from Duluth, GA. Son of the late Orlando “Zeus” Brown, an 11-year NFL veteran. After a successful three year career as the starting left tackle for the high powered offense at Oklahoma, he enters the league as one of the more polarizing prospects in the class. His collegiate honors go on and on - Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year, first-team All-America, and Outland Trophy finalist. One thing Brown has on every other tackle in the class is his top tier, rare, length. He can win a lot of one-on-one battles because of it. When he is accurate with his hands, he can be off balance with minimal knee bend and feet stuck in the mud, yet still win.
