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.

Let's not forget this is still the combine. A great or sub-par 40 time should not lift up or bring down anyone an entire round. If the kid can play, he can play. If he's got problems, money won't fix them, it'll usually exarcerbate such issues.

Jerry Rice & Michael Irvin ran 4.6 to 4.7 40 times and I don't remember hearing any analyst commenting on their 40 times during any game they played. I think the combine stats are over-analyzed.

Ryan Mallett has a cannon arm and a brash attitude. Somewhere in his lair, Undead Al is beaming, "Ryan Mallett... is a... great playah. He's got the... talent... and the... Raidah spirit."

Young, though, looked great with his route running and Torrey Smith was awful.

Today's combine recap,

As Hankerson's about to catch the ball, (camera pan) Analysts: Oh look Newton tying his shoes, (guh splooge). WRs are now running their 40s. (camera pan) Ananlysts: Oh look Newton is listening to music (guh splooge.

I wish I see the combine in full without hearing about the hard-ons these guys have

one more thing, AZHusker, ingram had the best 10 yard split of any RB, which is way more important for backs than the actual forty, since you see way more 10 yard runs than 40 yard runs in the NFL. but Helu's stock is definitely rising, i'll give you that

and wizdumb, Vereen looked awful in every drill except the bench press. And Dion Lewis is moving up if anything. He was incredible in the weave drill and the cut drill where a coach holds a bag and acts as a tackler, then the back must cut in the right direction. He was by far the most impressive in both those drills, which are far more important than 40 times and bench presses

My bad walt, i didnt realize. It's just crazy what a huge discrepancy there is in these times and the ones the NFL puts out. I mean Titus Young's time was 4.59 according to, which is a huge difference from 4.43. and Baldwin was a 4.5 not a 4.45 on their site. I think Hankerson is a first round lock after running in the 4.4's today

Roy Helu weighed more than Ingram and ran a 4.43 40 and you rave about Ingram??? Helu's stock went way up while Ingram reportedly lost weight and ran a high 4.5

I'm hoping Shane Veeren jumps up draft boards and Dion Lewis, or Quizz Rodgers fall to the Bucs in the middle rounds. Their combine numbers are not good, but they looked like the best runners by far to me.
