Isn’t a real accurate passer and lacks the athletic ability to buy time in the pocket. Is smart with the football, but lacks the tools of a big time prospect.

 

Running Backs

 

Tyrell Sutton: Northwestern (5-9, 190) Projection: 6th Round

An instinctive runner with good vision and burst through the hole. Showcases some wiggle at the second level, but lacks the size to take the consistent pounding of being a workhorse back.

 

Kory Sheets: Purdue (6-0, 206) Projection: 7th Round

Javarris Williams: Tennessee State (5-11, 220) Projection: 7th round/ Free Agent

A solid, well built back that runs behind his pads and can wear down opposing front sevens. Lacks great speed, but has the quickness to make a man miss and accelerate into space.

 

Full Backs

 

Collin Mooney: Army (5-10, 247) Projection:  Free Agent

A thick, physical full back with the ability to push the pile and drive for tough yards. Displays good power and has the mindset to sell his soul week in and week out as a lead blocker.

 

Wide Receiver

Ron Brace: Boston College (6-3, 324) Projection: 4th Round

A big, physical tackle with good body control and agility inside. Displays the ability too not only hold the point of attack in the run game, but slip blocks vs. the pass as well.

 

Terrance Taylor: Michigan (6-0, 319) Projection: 5th Round

A girthy nose tackle that plays with good leverage and power inside. Tough to move inside, but is limited as a pass rusher and is no more than a two down lineman.

The Canadian standout is a tough, blue-collar defender that uses his hands well to make up for his average athleticism.

 

Orion Martin: Virginia Tech (6-2, 252) Projection: 5th Round

Linebackers

Dannell Ellerbe: Georgia (6-1, 232) Projection: 4th Round

An undersized mike linebacker with good range and fluidity in coverage. Lacks great size and is washed out too easy on plays right at him.

 

Mortty Ivy: West Virginia (6-3, 236) Projection: 4th Round

A strong, explosive linebacker that flies all over the field and makes plays with reckless abandon. Needs to become a bit more instinctive, but has the tools and attitude to fill a variety of roles at the next level.

 

Jasper Brinkley: South Carolina (6-2, 275) Projection: 5th Round

A massive inside linebacker with good body control and power inside. Is a powerful tackler with natural pass rush ability. May be best suited to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense.
