    Re: The later rounds - 2011 draft

    More on Devlin and Austin

    Once again, the players receiving the most attention were North Carolina defensive tackle Marvin Austin and Delaware's Pat Devlin. Austin stood strong against disappointing offensive linemen Ryan Bartholomew (Syracuse) and Randall Hunt (Illinois) in run situations, as he did Tuesday. He flashed quick hands in one-on-one pass-rush drills, giving teams a glimpse of what his game could be with more polish after being away from the game for a full season. The time off affected his stamina; he lost steam late in practice.
    Devlin is the most talented quarterback on either roster, standing tall in the pocket and delivering accurate passes to all levels of the field. His lack of velocity mirrors the average arm he shows on tape. He's still working on taking snaps from under center, but that should come with time since he worked in a pro-style system during his time at Penn State.
    Here is a bit on Tolliver and Jean the wideouts

    LSU wide receiver Terrance Tolliver is clearly the most polished pass catcher. Florida Atlantic's Lestar Jean has a very similar build, but is just not as fluid running tight routes.

    Re: The later rounds - 2011 draft

    Notes on Dowling from Rob Rang..

    1. Ras-I Dowling, Virginia. Dowling was a pre-season favorite to be one of the top cornerbacks in the country, but injuries this year have caused his stock to slip, Rang said. When healthy he's a Top 50 selection, meaning that he could be a solid pick in the second round. He's big - 6-2, 205 - and physical and he's played in a 3-4 system.
    Said Rang: "He's going to be one of the players with a lot riding on the (Senior Bowl) week."

    And with that being the case, sources at East-West Shrine practices earlier this week said the team was paying attention to the quarterbacks, in particular to University of Idaho’s Nate Enderle and University of Wisconsin’s Scott Tolzien. Both happened to be the most impressive performers at the position during the practices, the sources said.
    Scooped this up

    10 players who helped their stock with strong East-West Shrine Game performances

    SS Shiloh Keo, Idaho: There might have been more impressive defenders in this game, but Keo's passionate play and versatility will leave an indelible impression on scouts. The strong safety filled the hole aggressively against the run, showed better than expected agility in coverage, covered punts and kicks on special teams and returned both. That type of versatility will make him tough to cut.

    Re: The later rounds - 2011 draft

    Added Kendrick Burney, CB out of North Carolina and Christian Ponder QB out of Florida State who both had a great Senior Bowl week.

    Along with James Carpenter who is a versatile lineman out of Alabama.

    Re: The later rounds - 2011 draft

    Injuries are a concern with ponder as well as his mental toughness. I recall in his game against my school (NC State) he threw the game sealing interception in the red zone and then spent the rest of the game crying on the sidelines with his head in his hands. Yes, it's happened before in college sports, but it was still rather funny to see a senior do that in a game that ultimately had no affect on who went to the ACC championship game.

    Depending on how teams rate his injury problems i think he could drop pretty deep in the draft..

    As far as mental toughness i think its something you lean to deal with with experience.

    Re: The later rounds - 2011 draft

    Damn, you've had a few good threads while I've been in the closet.....

    Couple of comments....

    I sure have seen alot of "Mallethead" slated in the most recent mocks.

    I for one don't like any of the top QB's and hope we pass.

    Fullbacks:
    Preston Dial - Alabama 6-7th round
    Why waste a precious draft pick on a FB? Bring a few undrafted guys in and let them compete with the other youngster we have on the roster.


    Offensive Line:
    Jason Pinkston (OT) - Pittsburgh 2-3rd
    Benjamin Ijalana (OG) - Villanova 2-3rd
    John Moffitt (OG) - Wisconsin 3-4th
    Willie Smith (OT) - ECU 4-6th
    Eric Mensik (OT) - Oklahoma 7th
    Bryant Browning (OG) - Ohio State 7th
    James Carpenter (OT) - Alabama 3-4rd - Added after Senior Bowl
    I was on, then off, not back on that Solder kid. Should be available at 12 if you want to take one that high. If it was me, though, I would wait and take one in the second. According to Mayock, this draft class is so deep in T that you will be able to get a OT late into the second round.

    You can save some money on a kid if you sign him in the second.

    Defensive End:
    Allan Bailey - Miami 2nd
    Christian Ballard - Iowa 2-3rd
    Markus White - Florida St. 5-6th
    No love for Steve Jordons son?

    Defensive Tackle:
    Kendrick Ellis - Hampton 2-3rd
    Muhammad Wilkerson - Temple 2-3rd
    Marvin Austin - North Carolina 2-3rd
    Kendrick, Kendrick, Kendrick. He has a small cult following down here in Tidewater.

    Linebackers:
    Greg Jones (ILB) - Michigan State 2nd
    Dontay Moch (OLB) - Nevada 2-4th
    Bruce Carter (OLB) - North Carolina 2-4th
    Kelvin Sheppard (ILB) - LSU 3-5th
    Doug Houge (OLB) - Syracuse 5-7th
    Scott Lutrus (ILB) - UConn - 7th
    I think we are deep at LB now. Again, why waste a pick. Promote from the bench and bring in a few Undrafted cats to compete.

    Cornerbacks:
    Aaron Williams - Texas 2nd
    Ras-I Dowling - Virginia 3rd
    Curtis Brown - Texas 3rd
    Rashad Carmichael - Virginia Tech 4-5th
    Jalil Brown - Colorado 5th
    Darrin Walls - Notre Dame 7th
    Kendrick Burney - North Carolina 4-5th - Added after Senior Bowl
    Same things as LB'rs. We already have some nice young talent that needs to step up. Judging by how well some of them did last year, they will.

    If you have some guys you wanna bring up, post them.. and Remember, this is without the projected first rounders.
    Been so busy in the closet (back in unexpectedly for a week) I haven't had time to even start looking.

    Again, great thread. Keep em coming.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
