2011 NFL Draft Combine Stock Report: Day 2

Missing Include

This is a list of players who have seen a change in their 2011 NFL Draft stock. Click here to see how this has affected the 2011 NFL Draft Prospect Rankings.

2011 NFL Draft Combine Stock Report

John Clay, RB, Wisconsin Draft Stock Up
John Clay, who was reported to be in the 250s at one point, weighed in at 230 Friday. This is a good sign for Clay, but he's still not a lock to be drafted. He needs to show that he can catch the football on Sunday.

Noel Devine, RB, West Virginia Draft Stock Up
Noel Devine weighed 160 pounds at the Senior Bowl. Citing some sort of injury that made him lose weight, Devine promised to be at 178 pounds at the Combine. He's 179.

Dion Lewis, RB, Pittsburgh Draft Stock Down
Dion Lewis was listed at 5-8, 195 during the season. I was hoping he'd eclipse the 200-pound barrier at the Combine. Instead, he's 5-7, 193.

Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas Draft Stock Down
Arkansas fans have accused me for hating Ryan Mallett for no explicable reason - see the 2011 NFL Draft Mailbag for more - but here's a Friday tweet from the Houston Chronicle's John McClain:

"A long-time personnel expert I trust told me last night that every time he looks at Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett he sees Ryan Leaf! Ouch!!!"

I personally see JaMarcus Russell. Tomato Tomahto.

Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State Draft Stock Down
Derek Sherrod managed 23 reps of 225 pounds at the Combine. That's not an awful number considering his arm length, but a lighter Gabe Carimi posted 29 reps despite the fact that his arm length is nearly the same as Sherrod's. I wrote yesterday that I was concerned about Sherrod's sudden weight gain. Let's see how he looks in the drills and 40-yard dash tomorrow.

Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland Draft Stock Down
Torrey Smith will probably run a great 40 on Sunday, but you can't help but be concerned about his hand size. Eight and 5/8 inches? Microscopic hands like those usually mean a huge drop rate. Look at Brandon LaFell (8 3/4 hands) as a prime example. Smith has been criticized for catching the ball with his body too often, and now we see why he tends to haul in passes that way.

Nate Solder, OT, Colorado Draft Stock Down
Twenty-one reps of 225? That's it? Nate Solder's arms aren't that long - they were measured at 35 inches at the Senior Bowl and 34.5 inches at the Combine. Tyron Smith, meanwhile, benched 225 pounds a whopping 29 times despite the fact that his arm length is 36 3/8 inches. Smith is also 12 pounds lighter than Solder. It's pretty clear that Smith has overtaken Solder as the No. 1 offensive tackle in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Shane Vereen, RB, California Draft Stock Up
Shane Vereen said he wants to show everyone he can be an every-down runner. So far, so good. Vereen weighed in at 5-10, 210 at the Combine. He was listed in the 200-205 range this past season.
