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

Marcus Cannon, G, TCU Draft Stock Up
Marcus Cannon weighed in at 6-5, 358. Based on his size, you'd expect him to be fat, slow and lethargic. On the contrary, Cannon did not appear as though he was anything close to 358. He ran a 5.20 40 and looked very fluid in all the drills. Cannon seems to have cemented his Round 2 status. He may even be selected at the end of Round 1 if a team believes he can play right tackle.

Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston College Draft Stock Up
Anthony Castonzo ran just a 5.21 40, but was phenomenal in the drills, showing great athleticism and technique. He could be the second tackle off the board behind Tyron Smith.

Marcell Dareus, DE/DT, Alabama ???
I really don't know what to make of Marcell Dareus' new weight of 319 pounds. wrote that Dareus is "built like a tree." The added mass may make Dareus more versatile. It could, however, limit his pass-rushing ability. I'm really interested to see how Dareus looks on Monday.

Virgil Green, TE, Nevada Draft Stock Up
Virgil Green showed off his great athleticism at the Combine. He notched a 42.5-inch vertical and a 10-10 broad jump. He also ran a 4.54 40. Don't think he's going to be selected in the top three rounds, however. Green is extremely raw and doesn't know how to run routes. He's a project, but could turn into a good player in a couple of years.

Rob Housler, TE, Florida Atlantic Draft Stock Up
While Virgil Green stole the show on Saturday afternoon, Rob Housler was just as impressive. He had a 4.51 40 and a 37-inch vertical, and unlike Green, Housler looked like he knew what he was doing in the drills.

Rodney Hudson, G, Florida State Draft Stock Up
Rodney Hudson may not carry 299 pounds very well, but his weight gain didn't seem to affect him in the drills. In fact, Hudson's footwork is still as good as ever.

Justin Houston, DE, Georgia Draft Stock Down
Justin Houston has constantly been mocked to 3-4 teams. That may change. Houston weighed in at 270 pounds Saturday, up 13 pounds from his listing during the season. His ability to drop into coverage is now a big question mark.

Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois Draft Stock Down
Corey Liuget measured in at 6-2, which would pretty much eliminate him from 3-4 contention. Lots of teams run the 3-4 now, so it's possible that Liuget will slip into the bottom of Round 1 if the Rams aren't interested.

DeMarcus Love, G, Arkansas Draft Stock Down
DeMarcus Love is a guard only. After watching him in the drills at the Combine, I'm further convinced that he can't play right tackle.

Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas Draft Stock Down
In one media session, Ryan Mallett refused to deny drug use; lashed out at the reporters; accused someone of setting him up to take a fall; said wise words like "Some people don't like my confidence. I can't do nothing about it;" and stormed off the podium.

The consensus from everyone there is that Mallett is very unlikable. In fact, Wes Bunting tweeted, "Don't trust Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett... end of story, guy rubs me the wrong way and he wouldn't be on my draft board. Period."

Mallett won't be on many draft boards. In fact, he'd be a late-round flier if it weren't for teams like the Bengals, Raiders, Eagles, etc.

Cam Newton, QB, Auburn Draft Stock Up
While Ryan Mallett destroyed his draft stock Saturday, Cam Newton increased his chances of becoming the top pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

The consensus was that Newton was very likable in the press conference. When asked to explain his "icon" and "entertainer" comments, Newton said the quote was misunderstood and taken out of context. He also explained the stolen laptop at Florida. Whereas Mallett barked at reporters for asking tough questions, Newton addressed everything, calmly and confidently.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post called Newton "respectful, intelligent and engaging." Klis added, "[Newton] is no JaMarcus Russell or Vince Young, another athletic quarterback who was a poor interview."

Derek Newton, OT, Arkansas State Draft Stock Up
"Derek... Newton... is a... great... playa..." This is what I wrote when Derek Newton ran his 40 time. Despite his 6-5, 311-pound frame, Newton ran a 4.99 on Saturday. Expect Al Davis to target him early on Day 3.

Weslye Saunders, TE, South Carolina Draft Stock Down
Weslye Saunders couldn't do anything at the Combine because of a broken foot. With red flags popping up everywhere, Saunders will probably go undrafted.

Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State Draft Stock Up
I was concerned about Derek Sherrod's sudden weight gain to 321 pounds. Well, Sherrod carried the 321 well and maintained his solid athleticism. He ran a 5.20 40 and looked good in the drills. He could go as high as No. 23 to Philadelphia, but will probably be selected in the 28-35 range.

Nate Solder, OT, Colorado Draft Stock Up
Nate Solder sucked on the bench press and still has some bad tape to answer for, but he really stood out at the Combine. At 6-8, 319, Solder ran a 4.97 and displayed incredible athleticism in the drills.

Julius Thomas, TE, Portland State Draft Stock Up
The next basketball player turned stud tight end? Julius Thomas looked very natural at the Combine, making receptions with ease during the drills. Thomas (6-5, 246) ran a 4.63 40 and notched a 35.5-inch vertical.

Isaiah Thompson, G, Houston Draft Stock Down
I didn't have Isaiah Thompson in my rankings entering the Combine, so I'll be nice. I'll just point out that Thompson ran a 6.01 40 and barely managed six feet in the broad jump. The broad jump was really pathetic; imagine playing a video game, and instead of pressing the jump button, you accidentally barely tap it, leading your character to do a half-hearted jump into a pit of lava. That's what Thompson looked like.

Shane Vereen, RB, California Draft Stock Up
The 210-pound Shane Vereen benched 225 pounds a whopping 31 times. That's more than most of the offensive linemen! Vereen clearly put a ton of work into bulking up for the 2011 NFL Draft. I can't wait to see what he looks like on Sunday.

Its the wheels that drive that strength that matter. I'm sure that there are a lot of really strong DL who are not playing because they can't run and push their frame towards the QB.

Get that knee right, then its translate.

How has Akeem Ayers stock not taken a hit? He's been mocked to the Lion constantly and has proven that he is not top 15 worthy. With others shooting up, he could easily fall out of the first.

Walter -

While Trent Williams' 40 time most certainly didn't hurt, it wasn't the reason he was selected before Russell Okung. Williams overall skill set was a better fit for the blocking schemes Washington employs.

The value of timing offensive lineman in the 40 has been a long-time hotly debated subject amongst scouts and talent evaluators. Most believe they give the biggest credence to the time of their 10 yard splits.

"Dontay Moch was supposed to blow up the Combine, but his 4.45 40 is the fastest for any linebacker at the Combine in at least a decade."

Or at least until Martez Wilson ran - "Wilson ran a 4.44 40"

Von Miller did not thrive in the drills, not even close.. He was not smooth as Mayock and Mora said, in almost every drill, excpet for the one that are pass rush type drills, coming off the edge... He proved hes a 3/4 player in the drills.. I don't know how u think he looked good in the drills... And the cherry on top, he almost dropped the ball on his catch, bobbling it around before snagging it...

There are so many good five-technique guys in the first round and they'll all be good by pick 32

You have nothing in here about Dion Lewis who was very impressive in ever running back drill. I'm utterly confused how he goes unmentioned.

@Robbie - The 40 was what got Trent Williams drafted over Russell Okung. If 40s aren't important, why does every single coach sit there with a stop watch and write everyone's time down?

Yeah, Walter, I think you're putting a little too much stock into 40 times!

So how is it that based purely on the Combine you've proclaimed that Dareus is now the better DT?? He was definitely more impressive in the measurables and athleticism but Fairley was completely unblockable all season. If you're gonna put Dareus ahead so easily why isn't Marvin Austin ahead of both?? He blew both of them out of the water.

K. Clark, Walter loves to degrade any AUburn players.

Fairly will be a much better NFL player than Dareus. He has a much more explosive first step and consistently abused double and even triple teams.
