*Calvin Johnson- 6-5, 239, 4.35

WR

Georgia Tech

Most complete player/athlete in draft. Better prospect than Reggie Bush. Stepped in at the Combine, unprepared, borrowed a QB's sneakers and ran a 4.35. Just when you think he cannot be more impressive he has his Proday! Broad Jump of 11' 7", Vert 42.5!

NFL.com: Johnson, whom some people think is the most talented player in the draft, had a broad jump of 11 feet 7 inches. That's the best broad jump I can ever remember an NFL prospect having. And his vertical jump was outstanding, too (42 inches). He looked very good catching the ball while running routes and his arm was measured at 34 5/8 inches.

*Jamarcus Russell-  6-5.75, 256 , 4.83

QB

LSU

Has it all, including ability to step up in big games. The most impressive aspect of Russell's character was his work between the Combine and his Proday. His two biggest weaknesses at the Combine were seen as his weight and his footwork So what does he do? he hires a Quarterback coach to work specifically of his footwork  and goes on a diet. Then at his Proday he shows up 9 pounds lighter, and displays noticeably improved footwork.

3

Joe Thomas-  6-6.5, 311, 4.92     

OT

Wisconsin

Franchise LT, similar to Ogden. Combines great size, great feet, long arms, Text-book technique, and great athleticism. Stepped up at combine and really showed he was the number one guy. At nearly 6-7 he showed he was a phenomenal athlete, smooth as ice.  

9.8

4

Brady Quinn-  6-4, 230         

QB

Notre Dame

Has it all except ability to step up in big games.

NFL.com: Quinn did only passing drills and had a good workout, showing good velocity and good anticipation. Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis ran the passing drills. Quinn threw to Irish tight end Marcus Freeman and receivers Rhema McKnight, Darius Walker and Matt Shelton, who finished at Notre Dame in 2005. On March 22, Quinn weighed in 233 pounds. He ran indoors on FieldTurf. He ran his 40s faster than expected (4.82 and 4.73). He also ran the short shuttle in 4.22 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.79 (with tiny cones, not tall ones). In addition, he had a 36-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-7 broad jump. 

9.7

5

*Adrian Peterson- 6-1, 225, 4.4

RB

Oklahoma

Maybe top player in draft, besides Calvin Johnson, if not for injury concern. A RB who can't stay healthy is large liability, but he dominated at the Combine, showing he was the top RB Athletically. 

9.7

6

Gaines Adams -  6-4.75, 258, 4.64

DE/OLB

Clemson

One of four DEs/OLBs who will probably go as high as their athleticism tests out at combine. He has solidified himself as the top pass rushing DE/OLB in this Draft.

NFL.com: Adams (261 pounds) notched 21 bench presses and did position drills, but stood on the rest of his Combine numbers.

9.7

7

Amobi Okoye-   6-2, 302, 5.0, 29 Reps     

DT

Louisville

Athletic freak, who played Division One Football at 16. Is still only 19, and has shown the physical and mental maturity to play in the NFL already. Showed up at Combine weighing 302 pounds, and still showed well. The scary thing is that he s still growing.

NFL.com: Okoye (301 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.88. He also had a 4.44 short shuttle but stood on his numbers from the Combine for the rest.

9.7

8

LaRon Landry- 6.6, 212, 4.34, 4.35 

S/CB

LSU

Landry impressed me on the field, he came up with big play after game-changing big play. This player more then any other shows the depth of this years draft. In any other year he is a  top five player, and I think he may slip out of the top ten.

NFL.com: Francis (6-0, 212) stood on his 40 times from the Combine. He ran the short shuttle in 4.36 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.11. He also had a 38-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-6 broad jump.

9.7

9

*Jamaal Anderson- 6-6, 281, 4.8      

DE/DT

Arkansas

Is drawing comparisons to Richard Seymour. Did not workout at Combine. His stock is dropping slightly, more to a lack of viability than anything else. Had interesting Proday, as he added 19 pounds to his playing weight of 265.

NFL.com: Anderson (284 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.75 and 4.80. He also had a 9-foot-8 long jump, 32-inch vertical jump, 4.22 short shuttle, 6.88 three-cone drill and 22 bench presses.

9.7

10

Patrick Willis-   6-1, 242, 4.39       

ILB

Mississippi

Made a lot of money at Combine when he ran a 4.49. He has everything else you want in a LB. Reminds me of Ernie Sims, he leads with his head and heart. This is the player the Patriots really need. He will and not just youth and depth, but exceptional speed to Linebacking core. Had an inhuman Proday, running a 4.37 at almost 240 Pounds.

NFL.com: "Willis (6-1, 237 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.37 and 4.38. He also had a 4.37 short shuttle and 7.10 three-cone drill. He stood on his numbers from the Combine for the rest. He had a phenomenal workout and clearly made several seven-figure increments in his rookie contract."

9.7

11

Leon Hall-  5-11,195, 4.39

CB

Michigan

Great player, I may like more then most, but this is a draft prospective from a Patriots point of view, and DBs and Linebackers maybe over rated a little this year. 

NFL.com: Campus: 4.42 in the 40-yard dash 33-inch vertical jump 30-inch arm length 8 7/8-inch hands.

Combine: 4.41 in the 40-yard dash 1.49 10-yard dash 2.54 20-yard dash 4.07 20-yard shuttle 11.62 60-yard shuttle 6.5 three-cone drill 37-inch vertical jump 10-foot-5 broad jump.

9.7

12

Levi Brown- 6-5.5, 323

OLT

Penn ST.

Will play Left Tackle in NFL for 10-15 years. As I predicted his stock just keeps rising. 

NFL.com: Brown (6-5 , 321) had arms that measured 34 3/8. He stood on his Combine numbers.

9.7

13

*Darrelle Revis- 5-11, 190, 4.38      

CB

Pittsburgh

Great player at Pittsburgh for three solid seasons. His only concern is speed, and he ran a 4.36 at his Proday. He is a big physical Corner, who supports the run with strength and aggressiveness. He is suck a physical player many people think he should be a safety, but he is a superior man-to-man cover guy. 

NFL.com: "Revis (5-11 , 196) ran the 40 in 4.41 and 4.39 seconds. He also notched a 38-inch vertical, a 10-foot-5 broad jump, a 4.08 short shuttle and a 6.56 three-cone drill. Sean Gilbert, a former first-round pick and 10-year NFL player, is his uncle. This workout made him some money, solidifying his status as a mid-first round pick."

9.6

14

*Alan Branch-  6-5.75, 324, 5.05, 33 reps      

DT

Michigan

Has really hurt himself in the off season, and it looks like he is dropping to some of the 3-4 teams. Terrible Proday. Should dominate earlier and for a long time. Has great instincts, size, and strength. May slide a little lower, but he won't last long. His lack of effort in playing hard every down is starting to worry teams, and he may be falling out of the top ten.

NFL.com: Branch (6-5, 328) ran the short shuttle in 4.79 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.56. Kansas City defensive line coach Tim Krumrie worked Branch hard during the position drills, and the scouts there said Branch did not look like he was in very good shape.

9.7

15

Adam Carriker- 6-6, 296, 4.72, 33 Reps

DE/DT

Nebraska

Great player. Has really solidified himself into the top half of the First Round. Has great size, strength, and technique, and he can play multiple positions in multiple Defensive fronts.

NFL.com: Carriker (6-6, 291) ran 4.73 and 4.72 in the 40.

9.5

16

*Charles Johnson-  6-3, 270, 4.75, 33 Reps            

DE

Georgia

Great athlete who will soar up the charts come Combine time. Showed great strength at Combine and then showed good speed at Proday. Will be hard to pass early.

NFL.com: Johnson (272 pounds) ran his 40s in 4.75 and 4.81.

9.5

17

*Reggie Nelson-  6', 195, 4.35

FS 

Florida

Terrific Athlete who makes plays all over the field. If he makes it to 24 I can't see the Pats passing on him. Ran a 4.35 at Proday and displayed amazing athleticism. 

NFL.com: Nelson ran the 40 once in a time of 4.35 seconds. He had a 35-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot-6 broad jump, ran 4.15 in the short shuttle and 6.70 in the three-cone drill. Nelson looked very good in the drills and might well have improved his stock.

Campus: 4.37 in the 40-yard dash 325-pound bench press 315-pound power clean 39-inch vertical jump 10-foot broad jump 3.97 20-yard shuttle 32-inch arm length 9-inch hands.

9.3

18

*Ted Ginn Jr.-  WR  5-11.5, 178, 4.3           

WR

Ohio State

Like Reggie Bush last year, when Ginn steps on the field he is the fastest player in pads. Must learn to run routes better and with more precision. Very small and must add weight. But when he is running in the open field there is no one better.

9.3

19

*Jarvis Moss-  6-6, 250, 4.68

DE/OLB

Florida

I thought he was great in Championship game He is very smart and appears to be able to do anything he wants on the field. And most important of all, he never stops hustling on the field. Due to playing most of his college career with a staph infection in his hip, he may have the highest upside of any DE/OLB in the draft, as he is still growing physically.

NFL.com: Moss (258 pounds) ran his 40s in 4.76 and 4.78 seconds, the short shuttle in 4.41 and the three-cone drill in 7.22.

Campus: 4.63 in the 40-yard dash 265-pound bench press 415-pound squat (from 2004) 37-inch vertical jump 33-inch arm length 9-inch hands.

9.3

20

*Greg Olsen- 6-5.5, 255, 4.41, 37.5 Vert

TE

Miami

Showed up at Combine bigger, faster, and stronger than expected. Runs routes and catches the ball like a WR. Much better player than I thought, after watching him on TV, I am very impressed. Blocking is a concern.

NFL.com: Olsen (255 pounds) had a 37-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-11 broad jump and ran a 4.41 in the short shuttle. He will work out again March 24 at the University of Miami.

9.3

21

*Lawrence Timmons-   6-1, 234, 4.59       

LB

Florida State

Super athletic Outside Linebacker and has great instincts and makes big plays all over the field.

NFL.com: Timmons (6-0, 233) ran his 40s in 4.63 and 4.71 seconds, the short shuttle in 4.34 and stood on everything else he did at the NFL Scouting Combine.

9.2

22

Joe Staley-  6-6, 305, 4.82

OT/OG

C. Michigan

Great athlete who is still converting from TE. I always rated LTs who started as TEs higher. Has added strength and size. Legitimate Left Tackle Prospect. If reports on Staley's Proday are correct he will not make it past KC, and may not reach KC. Ran a 4.8 at his Proday, also had a 32-inch Vert, and did 27 Reps.

NFL.com: Staley (6-5 7/8, 304 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.82. He also had a 32-inch vertical jump, 9-foot-4 long jump, 4.42 short shuttle and 7.09 three-cone drill.

9.1

23

*Marshawn Lynch-  5-10, 220, 4.46, 10'5" Vert. 

RB

California

Has been compared to Laurence Maroney. Arrest will cause him to slide, but I can't see the Giant passing on him.

9.1

24

*Chris Houston-  5-10, 185, 4.32, 27 Reps

CB

Arkansas

Houston is a physical Freak with superior cover skills. Has the BEST combination of strength and speed in the draft, and can bench an amazing 450 pounds and ran a 4.32 at the Combine. Is aggressive in press Coverage, has terrific Man-on-Man instincts, and can run hip-to-hip with anyone. I don't see how the Pats could pass on him at 24. He is not just a Workout-Warrior. He can play. He is smooth in coverage and has great hips that him to turn and run as well as anyone. Is a little wild and still needs coaching and technique work. Plays his best against the best. 

NFL.com: Campus: 4.49 in the 40-yard dash 525-pound squat 321-pound power clean 35-inch vertical jump 4.03 20-yard shuttle 32-inch arm length 9-inch hands.

Combine: 4.32 in the 40-yard dash 36-inch vertical jump 10-foot-2 broad jump 4.12 20-yard shuttle Bench pressed 225 pounds 27 times Chose not to run 60-yard shuttle.

9.1

25

*Robert Meacham 6-2, 205, 4.39      

WR

Tennessee

Interesting Wide out with good size and speed. Had a great Combine and a great Proday. He appears to moving quickly up the charts, and he could be gone before Pats pick. Has great hands. Big strong hands that he uses to snag balls out of the air. Could be very tough for Patriots to pass on.

NFL.com: Meachem (6-3, 217) ran 4.41 and 4.48 in the 40 and 4.19 in the short shuttle. He had a 37-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-8 long jump. He stood on his bench press total from the Combine.

9.1

26

Dwayne Bowe-  6-2, 220, 4.4         

WR

LSU

Tough, strong, great blocker, and knows how to get open. Who would be a lock for the First Round if not for inconsistent hands. 

NFL.com: Bowe (6-2, 218) ran his 40s in 4.49 and 4.40 seconds. He also had a 37-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-5 broad jump.

9.1

27

Aaron Ross-  6-1/2, 193, 4.45

CB

Texas

Great quickness and ability to cut on a dime. Can run and cover with anybody. Should be a lock in the First Round. Looks lost in off coverable sometimes, and has trouble locating the ball in a Zone. Bump-and-Run Corner who should be available for Pats at 28.

NFL.com: "Ross not only excelled as a cover cornerback for the Longhorns, but was also a standout as a punt returner, scoring three times on 76 runbacks during his career. His natural hands were evident, as he also deflected 33 passes and intercepted 10 others. Despite only one full season as a starter, he also generated 205 career tackles."

Campus: 4.45 in the 40-yard dash 275-pound bench press 425-pound squat 272-pound power clean 35-inch vertical jump.

Combine: 4.54 in the 40-yard dash 1.58 10-yard dash 2.63 20-yard dash 4.15 20-yard shuttle 6.67 three-cone drill 34-inch vertical jump 9-foot-10 broad jump Bench pressed 225 pounds 17 times.  

9.1

28

Michael Griffin- 6-0, 205, 4.40

CB/S

Texas

Great size, great speed, and great hips- can turn and run with anyone. Struggled last season with shoulder injury that caused him back off contact too much, which may cause him to fall on draft day. He could be steal in Second Round.

NFL.com: "Regarded by many NFL teams as the best strong safety prospect in the draft due to his hard-hitting tackling skills, Griffin's range and quickness might be a better fit for free safety at the next level. The unquestioned leader of the Longhorns defense, the two-year starter made it a family affair in the Texas secondary, starting alongside his twin brother, Marcus, who lined up at strong safety in 2006."

Griffin (5-11 7/8, 201) ran the 40 in 4.40 seconds. He also had a 39-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-8 broad jump, and stood on everything else he did at the Combine. He looked good.

Combine: 4.47 in the 40-yard dash 1.6 10-yard dash 2.63 20-yard dash 4.1 20-yard shuttle 11.27 60-yard shuttle 6.6 three-cone drill 36-inch vertical jump 10-foot broad jump Bench pressed 225 pounds 16 times.

9.0

29

Justin Blalock-  6-4, 330, 40 Reps  

OT/OG

Texas

Will play Guard in Pro's. Many see him a lock to step in and play for the next ten or fifteen years. Did an amazing 40 Reps at Combine.

NFL.com: Blalock (6-3, 321) stood on all his Combine performances and did only the position drills (but looked good in those drills). He should be a busy man shortly, with early April visits scheduled with the Cowboys, Redskins, Ravens, Vikings and Rams.

9.0

30

Paul Posluszny- 6-1, 233, 4.5       

ILB

Penn ST.

More football player than athlete, and will probably be draft much lower then this. Some question his hips and how well he turns and runs. Played three seasons at Outside Linebacker, but moved Inside to help team. He would be a n Inside Linebacker in Patriots Defense.A player I'm not sure the Patriots can pass on. Similar to Dwayne Ruud. in that he won't test great, but will just make plays on the field.

NFL.com: "Posluszny is another in a long line of standout players to compete at the "Linebacker Factory" that has become a pipeline for producing standout defenders for the NFL. Not only have opponents regarded him as the best defender they have faced, but former Penn State All-American linebacker and NFL Hall of Famer Jack Ham characterized Posluszny as 'the best linebacker ever to play at Penn State.'"

Posluszny (6-1 , 236) ran his 40s in 4.58 and 4.62. He looked good in all the drills.

Campus: 4.67 in the 40-yard dash 375-pound bench press 560-pound squat 335-pound power clean 31-inch vertical jump.

9.0

31

Tony Ugoh-  6-5, 305         

OLT

Arkansas 

Great athlete who doesn't quite seem to know what he is doing yet. I liked what he did at the Combine and Senior Bowl. SHowed he has the feet to play LT. Displayed great athleticism, and toughness. Got injured at Combine and finished the day. Legitimate Left Tackle Prospect. 

8.9

32

*Sidney Rice- 6-2, 200, 4.5               

WR

South Carolina

Sophomore who had great production over two season. Concern over route running and quickness in and out of cuts may cause him to drop.

NFL.com: There seemed to be only one person there who didn't think the field was ideal -- Rice's agent. He told Rice not to run. Rice (197) did do the long shuttle in 11.75 seconds and performed in the position drills.

8.9

2nd Round

33

*Dwayne Jarrett- 6-4, 215, 4.62   

WR

USC

Jarrett is a huge and slow WR who looks like a good fit in the West Coast Offense. He is the source of much dispute in this draft. Some think he could go as high as 7 to the Vikings, and some have him dropping into the Third Round. I admit I am not a big fan, but his size and production cannot be ignored. Against Off Coverage he is a force. He instinctually finds the soft spots in the zone and looks natural running free. But against Press Coverage he looks slow, unnatural, and suffering trying to get separation.

NFL.com: Jarrett (6-4, 214) ran his 40s in 4.67 and 4.62 seconds, the short shuttle in 4.20 and the three-cone drill in 7.28. He also had a 36-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-1 broad jump.

8.9

34

*Zach Miller- 6-4.5, 260, 4.72         

TE         

Arizona State

Tall, pass receiving TE. Running a 4.36 Short Shuttle at 255 Pounds is amazing! Has great hands and adjusts to the ball like a Wide Receiver. Strength and blocking is a concern. But he can catch anything thrown near him.

NFL.com: He had a good workout, running better here than at the Combine. Miller (6-4 , 255) ran 4.76 and 4.72 in the 40 and notched a 4.36 short shuttle and 16 bench presses.

8.7

35

Anthony Spencer-  6-2.5, 265, 4.73, 30 Reps         

OLB/DE

Purdue

Another College DE who maybe switched to 3-4 Linebacker. Great first step, explosive pass rusher. Looks a little top-heavy.

NFL.com: Spencer (6-2 5/8, 265) ran 4.69 and 4.71 in the 40 but stood on his other numbers from the Combine.

8.7

36

Ryan Kalil -  6-3, 286         

C

USC

A little undersized, but great football player. Keeps getting bigger and stronger and showed up at the Proday near 300 pounds. Ready to step in and start.

NFL.com: Kalil (6-2, 296 pounds) stood on his numbers from the Combine. 

8.7

37

LaMarr Woodley-  6-2, 265, 4.7

OLB/DE

Michigan

Has shown the athleticism to play Linebacker in NFL. He was a terrific Pass Rushing DE in college. Stock was really falling as he had a bad Senior Bowl and Combine, but ran a 4.71 forty, did 29 Reps, and jump 38.5 inches on his Proday. He may have worked his way back into the First Round. Is not just a pass-rusher, he is also excellent against the run.

NFL.com: "A relentless pass rusher who led the team in quarterback sacks in each of his last two seasons, Woodley was the heart and soul of one of the most dominant defensive lines in college football in 2006. Thanks to the play of Woodley and defensive tackle Alan Branch, the Wolverines led the nation in rush defense, allowing just 43.38 yards per game, and ranked fourth nationally with an average of 3.23 quarterback sacks per game."

Woodley (265 pounds) was invited to the Combine but did not run in Indy. He ran two 40s in 4.74 and 4.84 seconds and the short shuttle in 4.42. Claiming to have a tight hamstring, he skipped the three-cone drill. He also had a 38-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot-9 broad jump and 29 bench presses.

Campus: 4.62 in the 40-yard dash 355-pound bench press 35-inch vertical jump 32 7/8-inch arm length 9 7/8-inch hands.

8.7

38

Aaron Rouse-  6-3, 218, 4.5         

SS

Virginia Tech

Oversized Safety and can play Linebacker. Good against the run, and looks better in coverage then I would have guessed. Played exceptional well in coverage at Senior Bowl. Struggles with reads in passing game, and is still more of an athlete than football player

NFL.com: "Compares To: Cato June, Indianapolis For all of his speed and range, Rouse struggles in deep pass coverage and prefers to make plays in front of him rather than operating with his back to the ball He is one of the team's strongest players and certainly one of the quickest defensive backs in college, but if a Cover-2 defense drafts him, expect that team to shift him to outside linebacker He has experience at that position during his first two years at Tech and would be less of a liability in pass coverage if he was playing inside the box rather than in the deep zone."

Rouse (6-3, 219 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.53 and 4.56. He also had 10-foot-1 long jump, 4.19 short shuttle and 6.81 three-cone drill. He didn't do the vertical jump, standing on his numbers from the Combine.

Campus: 4.31 in the 40-yard dash 370-pound bench press 605-pound back squat 360-pound push jerk 360-pound power clean 35-inch vertical jump 33 3/8-inch arm length 9-inch hands Right-handed.

Combine: 4.55 in the 40-yard dash 1.59 10-yard dash 2.64 20-yard dash 35-inch vertical jump Bench pressed 225 pounds 16 times.

8.7

39

Brandon Meriweather- 5-10.6, 190, 4.5

FS/CB

Miami 

Attitude is in question, and I'm not sure he can play Corner, but I am sure he will be a terrific Free Safety. Is not a physical hitter, and does not play strong.

NFL.com: "A full-time starter his last two seasons, he would go on to register 182 solo tackles, breaking the school career record for safeties that was set by College Hall of Fame selection Bennie Blades (155, 1984-87)."

Meriweather had a 9-foot broad jump and 11 bench presses. He ran the short shuttle in 4.42 seconds and the long shuttle in 11.84.

Campus: 4.52 in the 40-yard dash 275-pound bench press Bench pressed 225 pounds 11 times 385-pound squat 255-pound power clean 4.42 20-yard shuttle 11.84 60-yard shuttle 9-foot broad jump.

Combine: 4.56 in the 40-yard dash 1.64 10-yard dash 2.68 20-yard dash 4.33 20-yard shuttle 7.06 three-cone drill 35-inch vertical jump 9-3 broad jump Bench pressed 225 pounds 11 times.

8.7

40

Ben Grubbs -  6-3, 314, 35 Reps

OG

Auburn

Pure Guard. He can pull and hit anyone. Can get under the D-linemen and play with great leverage. Pass protects with balance and strength. Will just step into a O-Line and not leave for ten years.

NFL.com: Grubbs (314 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 5.10. He also had a 4.78 short shuttle, 7.70 three-cone drill and 35 strength lifts. He worked out well in position drills.

8.4

41

Justin Harrell- 6-4, 314, 31 Reps

DT/NT

Tennessee

Excellent against the run. Looked like first Round lock but serious injury knocked him down.

NFL.com: Harrell (6-4, 314) added 14 pounds more since the Combine, He had 31 bench presses and stood on numbers from the Combine.

8.4

42

Jason Hill- 6.5, 204, 4.32    

WR

Washington ST

Perfect fit for Patriots Offense. Very good Wide Out at Washington. I thought he was most impressive WR at Senior Bowl. Got in and out of his cuts Quicker than any other player in practice. Would be an interesting pick at 28, but would be a steal in the 2nd Round.

8.4

43

Marcus McCauley-  6.75, 203, 4.33        

CB

Fresno ST

Sometimes looks great and sometimes looks horrid. Looks to be first boom or bust player. If he can find any kind of consistency he could be a good one. Bump-and Run corner who fits Patriots  System. Had great Combine.

NFL.com: McCauley (6-0 , 197) recorded a 36 -inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-8 broad jump, but stood on the rest of his Combine numbers.

Aundrae Allison-  6-1, 197, 4.3

WR

East Carolina

Is really flying up the charts was he displays his amazing speed and athleticism. Had good production in two seasons at east Carolina. May have worked himself into the 1st Round. $.25 Short Shuttle is amazing. Some think the Pats took Deion Branch because he ran a 4.34 Short Shuttle.

NFL.com: Allison (5-11 7/8, 195 pounds) stood on most of his Combine numbers, running a 4.25 in the short shuttle and a 6.81 in the three-cone drill.

*Jon Beason-  6-0, 229, 4.63

LB

Miami

Typical Miami Linebacker, speed and production. His stock is flying up the charts, and it looks like he will be in the 1st Round. Looks like a Tampa Two Linebacker, fast and undersized. He is terrifc against he run, but I question his value as a Patriots Linebacker.

NFL.com: "The team leader and a fiery competitor, the Dick Butkus Award candidate was bothered by several nagging injuries the second half of the 2006 season, but still went on to lead the team in tackles (76). The versatile and hard-hitting defender began his Miami career as a fullback, but shifted to strong-side outside linebacker as a redshirt freshman in 2004. He also played several games at middle linebacker that year before shifting to weak-side outside linebacker as a sophomore."

Beason weighed in a 229 pounds, down eight pounds from his weight at the Combine. He didn't work out because he strained a muscle while performing on the Cybex machines at the Combine. He will work out April 5 at his high school.

Campus: 4.63 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

Daymeion Hughes-  5-11.4, 185, 4.56        

CB

California

Besides Hall, he appears to be most ready to step in and start next season. Had great Senior Year with 8 interceptions. Not a good man cover guy, he is a Tampa-Two Zone Corner. Disastrous Forty times have sent him to the 2nf Round.

NFL.com: Hughes (5-11 3/8, 185 pounds) ran his 40s in 4.56 and 4.58. He also ran a 4.36 short shuttle and 7.03 three-cone drill. He did not do any jumps.

Pumped up Corner who can play multiple positions in the Secondary. Strong and tough and will play multiple positions for a team. May be most valuable as fifth DB who can step where needed. Looks like a perfect fit as a Tampa Two Corner.

DT/DE

Florida

Better athlete then given credit for. A DT who looks like a DE, but he is an interior player. He has great initial quickness that causes problems got Guards. Plays low and with good leverage. He is the third best 3-4 DE prospect in this draft behind Anderson and Carriker.

Josh Beekman- 6-2.3, 315 

OC/OG

BC

Has everything except elite height. If he was two inches taller he would be a First Rounder. His versatility make raise him into the 2nd Round. He is a solid Run Blocking Guard, whose best position may be Offensive Center in the Pros.

7.4

68

Brian Leonard- 6-1, 225

RB/FB

Rutgers

Pumped up RB who played FB last season to help his team. Lost over ten pounds for Senior Bowl because he wants to play RB. Terrific receiver and blocker for a RB. Does not knock people back as a blocking Full Back.

Quentin Moses-  6-5, 261, 4.82

7.4

70

James Marten-  6-6, 305

ORT

Boston College

He always looked good when I watched him play, but I think I have rated higher then most. He really showed his versatility at Senior Bowl and Combine, and could be a solid 2nd Round pick. Can Left Tackle, has experience at LT, but his feet will hurt him there. Should be a solid Right Tackle for a lot of years, and some think he can swing inside to Guard as well. Big, thick, and smart, just the type of O-Linemen who plays for a lot of years in the NFL.

Marshall Yanda- 6-4, 305, 5.1

OT/OG

Fresno ST

Has experience at every O-Line position expect Center. Strong, thick, and aggressive. Some see him as a O-Guard and some as a O-Tackle. Hawkeye's coach Kirk Ferentz, who is buddy of Belichick, said Yanda is one of the best O-Linemen to play at Iowa in a while. Plus, Ned Cornish is Yanda's and Belichick's Agent. If he is still on the board when the Pats pick at 91 they will jump all over him, but some have him going as early as the 2nd Round.

WR

He is a great athlete, who leaves you wanting more. Tall, fast, and bone thin. Looked good but not great at Senior Bowl. Which is the curse of his college career, he always looked good but not great. Still, he would be very hard to pass at pick 60.
