QB Greg McElroy DOWN

The only quarterback who has really stood out as good or bad all week, McElroy was very erratic today. He was leaving balls up too high and overall he wasn’t very accurate.

RB DeMarco Murray UP

Tough to tell a lot about running backs when the defense isn’t going full speed tackle, but Murray ran very physically. If he can prove he’s physical enough to carry the load, he could go in the 2nd round.

WR Jeremy Kerley UP

Not very big, but extremely productive in college as a receiver, but he was a two time special teams player of the year in the Mountain West and he showed very good route running and quickness as a receiver today. He projects as a slot receiver and could be a high day 3 pick.

WR Leonard Hankerson UP

Continuing to impressive after a strong day Monday. He runs great routes, he’s got good speed, good size, great hands, adjusts well, and on top of it all, just looks like a talented receiver. Definitely passes the eyeball test. He looks like a 2nd rounder at this point.

WR Courtney Smith DOWN

I think he dropped more passes today than he caught. He looks slow in his breaks as well. He’s a small school kid and needed to make an impression this week. So far, the only impression he’s made is that he can’t catch.

WR Vincent Brown UP

Another great day from the small school kid from San Diego State. He could be a day 2 pick.

TE Luke Stocker UP

Made a lot of nice catches in individual pass catching drills. He didn’t have the greatest career at Tennessee, but he has nice hands and at 6-4 7/8 255 he can inline block. This is a week tight end class so if he performs well in the game, he could be my #2 tight end at the end of things.

TE Lee Smith UP

Going to have a hard time making people forget Tennessee dismissed him for character issues, but at 6-5 7/8 269, he has a future as a blocker and he made some nice blocks today. 34 inch arms don’t hurt either.

OT Derek Sherrod DOWN

Moved up after a strong Monday, but really struggled in one on ones today. He’s a great athlete, but he’s far from a first round pick lock.

OT Nate Solder UP

Hard to believe this guy was a tight end a few years ago.  After measuring in at 6-8 ½ 314 with 35 inch arms Monday, Solder was the North’s most dominant offensive lineman today. Between him and Anthony Costanzo, who I really like, there may be hope for this offensive tackle class yet.

OT DeMarcus Love DOWN

Proved he was athletic Monday, but struggled mightily in one on ones today. His technique is very poor.

OT Danny Watkins UP

I’m hesistant to move him up because he is already 27 years old, but he did look like the best offensive lineman the south had today. He can play inside and outside and is certainly ready to play right away.

OT Lee Ziemba DOWN

Doesn’t look athletic enough to be a tackle in the NFL. Frequently abused by speed rushers and may have to move inside to guard.

C Kris O’Dowd DOWN

Frequently abused today. Couldn’t beat anyone in one on ones. He was overpowered by bigger lineman and his poor techinique didn’t make up for it at all.

C Brandon Fusco UP

I still don’t know where Slippery Rock is or why anyone would name a school that, but this kid was impressive today.


DT Jarvis Jenkins UP

Didn’t produce much in college, but he has all the physical tools and his dominance in one on ones with centers will get him some looks as a 3-4 nose tackle in a weak nose tackle class.

DE Allen Bailey DOWN

Too much of a tweener. He couldn’t get around anyone when he lined up on the outside and couldn’t outmuscle anyone inside. He’s an athletic freak, but he might drop to the 2nd round in a strong defensive end.

DE Cameron Jordan UP

The second straight dominant day from the kid from Cal. He’s definitely  my #3 defensive end prospect after Nick Fairley and Marcell Dareus. Doing a great job of distancing himself from guys like JJ Watt, Adrian Clayborn, Cameron Heyward, and Allen Bailey.

DE Sam Acho DOWN

Measured in a little small at just under 6-2 and 257 pounds Monday and got overpowered in one on ones. He might have to move to rush linebacker.

DE Jeremy Beal DOWN

More of the same from him today, he looks out of shape and was frequently overpowered in one on ones.

DE Brooks Reed UP

Interested to see more from him, quick, aggressive, and sneaky on the outside. Might end up a rush linebacker at 6-2 ½ 257, but there’s no question he can get past linemen.

DE Ryan Kerrigan DOWN

After being the most dominant defensive lineman yesterday, Kerrigan disappointed me greatly today. He was overpowered, which makes sense considering he weighed in at 255 yesterday. He’ll probably need to be 260+ to be a top 15 pick unless a 3-4 team like Houston falls in love with him.

DT Christian Ballard UP

Good to see him finally stepping up after an inconsistent senior year.

NT Phil Taylor UP

Another amazing day for the big guy out of Baylor. Durability is still an issue, but performance has not been so far this week. He could end up the #1 nose tackle in this class when it’s all said and done.

OLB Lawrence Wilson UP

The only linebacker who stood out in 11 on 11 practice, Wilson made several good plays and seemed to be around the ball all the time.

CB Johnny Patrick DOWN

An awful day in coverage for Johnny Patrick. He’s not having a good week. He may have dropped from out of the 2nd day.

CB DeMarcus Van Dyke UP

The little known kid out of Miami might have been the most impressive cornerback the South had today. Size is an issue at 168 pounds, but at 6-0 ¾ with 31 ¾ inch arms, he’s got room to grow.

CB Shareece Wright DOWN

Targetted as a sleeper of mine coming into the week, but today disappointed me. Came out of his breaks flat footed way too many times, allowing faster receivers to blow right past him.
