    Top 100 risers/fallers in NFL draft

    Top 100 risers/fallers in NFL draft

    Risers

    Mario Williams -- North Carolina State pass-rushing defensive end Mario Williams is being viewed as an immediate impact prospect whose value may be better than that of Virginia offensive tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson. The question for the team picking is whether they want to protect their own quarterback or beat up on the opposing passer. It's a tossup who should be No. 2 at this point.

    Jason Allen -- Scouts concerns are healed now. Tennessee defensive back Jason Allen skyrocketed back into first round territory when he quieted concerns about his injured hip. He had one of the more dominant showings at the Combine. A possible top ten pick before the injury, Allen finished among leaders in 40 yards (4.39 seconds), short shuttle (3.83) and vertical jump (39.5 inches).

    Chad Jackson -- Blazing through 40 yards in 4.32 seconds at Indy certainly made Florida wide receiver Chad Jackson a standout in a position that is unusually light on talent this year.


    Fallers

    Vince Young -- OK, how much first round payroll would you gamble on a project? Texas quarterback Vince Young didn't do himself any favors by not working out at the Indianapolis Combine. This left teams seriously considering if they want to spend a high draft pick on a potential quarterback project with no perspective on his ability to possibly fit in at another position. His March 22 Pro Day may be key.

    Santonio Holmes -- Even after running 4.31 and 4.35 at his Pro Day, Ohio State wide receiver Santonio Holmes stock remained on the fall, a descent that began when he did not work out at Indy while Florida's Chad Jackson took part and showed that he is not only bigger, but perhaps faster. Jackson's 4.32 on the Indy surface still trumps Holmes' home turf Pro Day timings.

    Chad Greenway -- Iowa outside linebacker Chad Greenway still needs to show scouts he has the natural strength to hold up in the NFL. He benched 225 pounds only 16 times at the Combine.

    Claude Wroten -- LSU defensive tackle Claude Wroten could regret option for Pro Day workout over Combine show. At his March 4 Pro Day, he showed average strength with and then pulled a hamstring in his first 40 run

    Ko Simpson -- Pro football is a complicated game teams want to be sure top draft picks can assimilate a lot of information quickly, meaning they need to communicate well. South Carolina free safety Ko Simpson, considered by some to be a possible first round pick, struggled during team interviews at the Combine and could be passed by other safeties who improved their stock in Indianapolis.

    Derek Hagan -- Timing is everything and Arizona Stat wide receiver Derek Hagan's clock is off a tick. He continued his post-season struggles with drops at the Combine. After a disappointing week at the Senior Bowl, he dropped several more passes during combine drills, though he did run better (4.46) than expected.

    I'm very particular to our LSU players - but if Wroten falls anywhere near us in the 2nd, we should get him and use him for trade bait or SOMETHING!

    He's a stud, on an average play, he was more of a standout than Marcus Spears was for us last year. Perhaps not quite as athletic, but he's a true stud... too bad we're loaded at DT.

    I second that...use one of our second rounders (if we don't use one of them to trade for Schaub) to pick him...he will surprise everyone who passed on him...plus he will play with a chip on his shoulder (a la the way Randy did his rookie season) :grin:
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Agreed...Wroten IS a stud!!! Easily an upgrade over Mosley and probably Spencer Johnson too!

    Man I so wish we could get him in the second.. That would be amazing..

    1st- QB, Vince or Cutler
    2nd- Ko Simpson
    2nd- Hodge.
    3rd- Eslinger
    3rd if we lose Burly- Hagen.. Develop him

    That's my dream draft

    Re: Top 100 risers/fallers in NFL draft

    i hope VD vernon davis is on the list of risers. before the draft we were all thinking he might be around my our pick and that it would be even too early to take him there. now i believe that he is going top 10 at elast and maybe even top 5 if miami/saints dont trade away their pick.
    We're bringing purple back.
