Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Fisher arrived at Central Michigan as a 250-pound tight end. Like Joe Staley before him he transitioned to the left tackle position and added 56-pounds. This is a tall, agile and athletically gifted prototype left tackle with still lots of room to grow and develop. Fisher gets out of his stance so well, he can really bend and move and he’s very long. Fisher hasn’t been tested competition wise like Luke Joeckel but appears to have a higher ceiling.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Joeckel is leaving A&M early. He won the Outland Trophy as the nation's top offensive linemen. Joeckel started all 39 of his games for the Aggies. He's your prototype left tackle that’s long with great feet. Joeckel's pass pro is ahead of his run blocking. Still needs to work on bulking up and getting stronger. He may be the safest play of all the offensive tackles but I believe Fisher and perhaps Johnson have more upside. Those two are just a little more athletic.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Jordan signed with the Ducks to be a hybrid tight end/wide receiver but was moved to defense. He made an easy transition and starred at outside linebacker/defensive end showing super versatility and even covering receivers in the slot and tight ends. Jordan sustained a torn labrum and after the NFL Combine. It's expected that he should be ready for training camp if there are no additional issues with the injury. Jordan’s is a super athlete with a great first step and speed off the edge. His upside is sky high. While he could play defensive end in a conventional 4-3 defense he’s more suited to be an outside linebacker in a 3-4.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Floyd was the nation's top rated DT coming out of high school. He mainly played defensive end his first two years in Gainesville before moving inside this past season. Floyd gets off the ball in a hurry and is very athletic for his size. He's strong and uses his hands well. Floyd would be much further along with three years at the d-tackle position. But he has also shown he can play the 5-technique in a 3-4 scheme.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Lotulelei’s (pronounced lo-too-leh-lay) signed with BYU as a defensive end but failed to qualify because of academics. He starred as a freshman at Snow College but gave up on football after blowing up to 350-pounds and losing passion for the game. But he then missed the sport and made his way to Utah. Lotulelei lived up to his first name the past two seasons for the Utes. It was discovered that he had a heart condition at the NFL Combine but he’s now cleared. Where he could fall in the draft could depend on the each team’s medical. All things being equal he’s as talented as anyone in this draft. Lotulelei is athletic, strong, agile and powerful. He’s also versatile and could play in virtually any defense.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Ansah came to BYU from Ghana, Africa. He tried out twice for the Cougar basketball and was cut each time. So he went out for football. Ansah started out on the special teams before becoming a starting defensive end this past season. Ansah was also a walk on with the BYU track team. He has had a meteoric rise up the draft charts. Like Jordan, his upside is immense. He’s so athletic and so raw. Ansah has a great frame to keep piling on the right weight, long arms and he can rush the passer and play the run. He plays hard and wants to work to get better. Ideal as a 4-3 defensive end.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Mingo is a freaky good athlete that didn't start playing football until his junior high school season. He has a long frame with a ton of room to bulk up. Mingo was 2nd team All-SEC as a sophomore despite only starting three games. He has a very good first step and speed off the edge. Mingo looks like a 3-4 rush linebacker in the NFL. At this time his measurables out pace his prior production as a player but you can’t ignore his enormous pro potential. Folks need to remember that Mingo was asked to do a lot more for the LSU defense than just rush the passer. He had a stellar pro day with many scouts saying he reminds them of Jevan Kearse.

Milliner had 22 passes defended this past season and comes into this draft at the top corner prospect. He participated at NFL Combine with a torn labrum. This is a player with a good combo of size/speed and he certainly answered any question he had regarding his speed at the NFL Combine with a great forty. Milliner can flips his hips and run/change directions very well. He finished with six career interceptions and 38 passes defended in three years as a starter at Alabama.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Johnson started 23 times at right tackle and then left tackle for the Sooners after coming over from Kilgore College, where he first played quarterback then tight end. He came to OU as a defensive end before moving over to offensive tackle. Johnson had a very good week at the Senior Bowl and blew everyway away at the NFL Combine, running a 4.72 forty. He’s not quite as far along as Joeckel and Fisher but he has some serious upside. Johnson’s best days are ahead of him.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Jones shocked many and signed with the Trojans. After sustaining a stinger during his freshman season it was discovered he had spinal stenosis. Jones left USC because their team doctors would not clear him to play. But they did at UGA, where Jones starred in the SEC. Over last two seasons he racked up 44 tackles for a loss and 28 sacks. Will his medical issue scare away teams at the top of the draft? Just remember what happened with Clemson’s DaQuan Bowers. It doesn’t help that Jones didn’t exactly knock it out of the park at his pro day. But he’s one of those guys that will never test well. Come Sundays in the fall, he will be ready to go. Just watch what he did on Saturdays. To drop because of medical is one thing. To drop him because of testing is altogether different.

Warmack is a powerful and punishing offensive guard at the point of attack. He helped pave the way for the Alabama rushing attack the past three seasons. Warmack has a great lower body, strong punch and good feet. Warwack is nasty and tenacious and considered one of the top offensive guard prospects of late. Believe it or not Warmack as a longer reach then Joeckel and Fisher.

Austin is an electric player with the ball in his hands. He came into Morgantown as a running back but made the switch to slot receiver. He's also a dynamic return man. Against the Sooners in '12 Austin compiled a school record with 572 all-purpose yards. Austin ran 4.34 forty at NFL Combine. More teams in the league are using a slot receiver in base personnel. Given that fact and his kick return abilities makes him even more valuable. Austin is the most explosive player in the draft. In the right system in today’s NFL he has a chance to be a huge weapon.

Richardson signed with Missouri but had to attend JUCO because of academics and played two years at College of the Sequoias. He resigned with the Tigers in 2011. Richardson had a good final season at Mizzou with 75 tackles and 10.5 sacks. He has a good first step and athleticism on the inside. If Richardson ever learns to play every down with great effort he has the potential to be an inside force on Sundays. He’s best suited as a three-technique in a 4-3 defense.

He can play either guard position as well as center so his versatility adds to his value.

Patterson was an elite receiver out of high school but had to first attend Hutchinson C.C. because of poor academics. There he was a JUCO All-American who ran a 10.33 100 meters. Patterson signed with Tennessee and made a huge impact for the Vols offense and special teams. At his size ran a 4.42 forty and vertical jumped 37", broad jumped 10'8" at NFL Combine. This is an explosive athlete at the wide receiver position but he’s still has a lot to learn about playing the position. He’s raw and some are questioning how quickly he can adapt to an NFL offense. Patterson played only one year of BCS ball.

This past season was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year after recording 13 sacks and 18 tackles for a loss. Werner gets off the ball very well and plays with a great motor. He may be the safest selection of all the defensive ends. Coming out of the college football season many thought he was a top 10 selection. But he hasn’t tested well and he could slide down the first round. Folks, just watch the film.

He’s very adept at sealing off and collapsing the edge in run game. Despite his size can bend and move and get to the second level. Fluker does need to continue to work on his pass pro skills. Fluker has a bright future at right tackle but may project even higher on the inside at guard.

Rhodes excels in press coverage but needs to work on his zone play. He showed the NFL that he can run with the forty times he posted in Indy at the Combine. The Seahawks have shown the rest of the league that big corners can be a force in the NFL. Rhodes’s stock should continue to climb.

Ertz had a monster season for the Cardinal, catching 66 passes for 837 yards and six scores. This is a physical tight end that is deceptively athletic. Ertz blocks well in-line and continues to get better in this part of his game. As a receiver Ertz has good but not great speed. But Ertz has soft hands and is a nice route runner. He and Tyler Eifert are basically 1a and 1b in this draft. I prefer Ertz because at this point I think he's a more well-rounded player.

Watson is the feel good story of this draft. From Manchester, England and growing up in a tough environment, he escaped the streets and found his love in sports.

From there he earned a scholarship to FSU and now he's on the brink of being one of the first OTs taken in the draft. It's an amazing story. This is a raw tackle with super ability. He has great feet, a big and long frame and he soaks up coaching like a sponge.

On Saturday of the NFL Combine Te'o met with the media for the first time, answering all questions regarding the girlfriend hoax. He couldn't have handled the press conference any better, showing humility and maturity in talking about the controversy. As a player, Te'o has great leadership, plays with outstanding instincts and a terrific motor. He capped off senior season with 100+ tackles and seven INTs. But Te’o was smaller weight wise and didn’t exactly run and test as well as everyone thought he would. Again, like Jarvis Jones, do you let his test results this past spring influence your rating? Te’o had a very good senior season with the exception of the Alabama game. His slide in the draft will certainly benefit one lucky team.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Allen was the top safety recruit in high school but selected Cal over Alabama because they wanted him as a receiver. He is deceptively fast because of his long strides. Allen can go get the ball in the air. He set a school record with 205 receptions, is third with 2,570 receiving yards and seventh with 17 touchdown catches. He also excels as a punt returner. Allen had been pushing both Austin and Patterson for the top receiver selection. He missed the NFL Combine last week because of a sprained knee ligament and still isn’t 100%.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Barkley had a big junior season one year ago and would have likely been the third quarterback taken in last year's draft. But he elected to stay for senior campaign and had a rough fall. Barkley suffered a shoulder injury. By all accounts he had a solid but not great pro day. Up to as many as seven teams are looking for signal callers and Barkley is a guy with four-years of college experience playing in a pro-system and he has a great pedigree. He possesses good arm strength but not great. Barkley is an accurate passer at his best in the short to intermediate game.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Williams transferred to Alabama from Arizona Western C.C. He came to the States from Brisbane, Australia. He didn't pick up football until the age of 15 after playing rugby and soccer. Williams is freaky strong, bench pressing an astounding 600-pounds. He played nose tackle and five-technique for the Crimson Tide. Williams won't blow you away with his athleticism but he's a tough, physical player that gives great effort on every single down. He's not your classic 3-technique tackle in a 4-3 but can play it. Williams can also play any position on the front in a 3-4 so there is a ton of value here in his versatility. He could slide up the draft at Alabama's pro day.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
For many months during his recruitment Brown was considered the top prospect in the nation in his class. Brown originally signed with Miami before transferring to Kansas State. He red-shirted his first season in Manhattan and then played two terrific years for the Wildcats. Brown is one of the fastest/quickest 'backers in this draft and really can close to the ball in a hurry. He can play inside or out. He's the older brother of Eagles running back Bryce Brown.

Lacy patiently waited his turn behind Mark Ingram and then Trent Richardson. He had a terrific junior campaign where he finally became the starter, leading the Crimson Tide in rushing with 1,322 yards rushing and 17 scores. This is a powerful back with deceptive quickness in the open field. Lacy could possibly be the third consecutive Alabama running back taken in the first round.

In his three years in College Station Moore racked up 26 sacks and 45 tackles for a loss playing in both the 3-4 and 4-3 schemes. Moore has a very good get off and speed on the edge. Can he follow in the footsteps of former A&M star Vonn Miller? His scheme versatility should help his draft stock but he did not test well at all at NFL Combine or his pro day and teams which has really hurt his draft stock. Moore went from a consensus top 10 guy to a possible second day draft pick.

Woods is one of the more polished receivers in this draft. He was a three and out guy at USC after being the top rated wide receiver in the nation. Woods had a magnificent sophomore season with 111 receptions. He has good speed and hands and has the potential to be a No. 1 WR but more likely a No. 2 in the NFL. He’s not blessed with great NFL size but don’t let that fool you. Woods has shown that he can be a monster at this position. He may be the most ready to play now of any of the guys at this position in this class.

Georgia won a big recruiting battle to land this massive tackle from Gulf Coast C.C. in Mississippi. He finished his two years in Athens with 78 tackles, eight tackles for a loss and four sacks.

Elam went three and out in Gainesville. This is a very instinctive safety that is always around the ball and making big plays. Elam is tough against the run and stout in coverage and at this best playing in the box. While Elam lacks the ideal size to play the safety position he makes up for it with his outstanding play making abilities. Elam showed during his high school and college that he’s just an overall super football player.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Hayden will be another potential first round selection that first started at the Junior College route (Navarro). He had 11 pass breakups as a junior at Houston and two interceptions. The following year during a fall practice he tore a vien (inferior vena cava) which carries blood back to the heart. It was a scary injury and he was recently cleared to play. Prior to the injury Hayden had four interceptions. No doubt with a clean bill of healthy Hayden possesses all the corner skills to be a high pick and a very good pro. He’s got enough size and ball skills and good speed. Hayden can play in man and is good in run support.

Carradine was a starter this season because of the injury to teammate Brandon Jenkins. He was racking up a big year and registered 11 sacks before injuring his knee against the Gators in the season finale. Carradine has battled rehab in a big way and is way ahead in his recovery. He will work out for teams on Saturday (4-20). When healthy he's an explosive pass rusher with good athleticism. He would have been an early first round selection likely taken had it not been for the ACL injury.

Hunter has rebounded nicely from a 2011 ACL injury sustained early that season versus Florida. He has elite size, runs well and can jump through the gym. Hunter was a track standout in the high jump. With his size and athleticism Hunter could turn himself into a No. 1 wide receiver in the NFL. Hunter tested well in Indianapolis and his stock continues to go up and up. Hunter could make his way into the later part of the first round draft.

Minter racked up huge numbers this past season, recording 130 tackles and 15 tackles for a loss at LSU. He's a middle linebacker very adept at sifting through the traffic, disengaging blockers and finding the ball. He can play inside-out and takes good angles but best in the box when things come right at him. Minter still needs to work on drops in coverage and his play against the pass.

Hankins is a big and strong interior defensive lineman. For his size he ran a nice 5.31 forty at the NFL Combine. That's moving pretty well for a 320-pounder. Hankins can be a 4-3 three-technique but looks ideal over the center in a 3-4 scheme. This is a big and wide bodied interior defensive linemen that has some quickness. He gets off the ball and up field. Hankins is a very good run stopper.

Hunt tore up the NFL combine, running a 4.6 forty, had 38 reps on the bench pressed, 34.5" vertical jump and a broad jump of 10'1". Hunt, from Estonia, is a former shot put and discus winner in the 2006 Junior Track and Field Championships. Hunt went to work with the SMU track coach in 2007. There, he was convinced to go out for football. Hunt blocked an NCAA record nine field goals over his career. You can’t ignore his measurables and his 6-foot-8, 270-pound frame. It’s just that right now his production and play as a defensive lineman don’t match up with his outstanding measureables. Still, he could develop into something special in a few seasons.
