  1. Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska - Scouting Report
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 307.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.00.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.98.
    Benchx225: 32. Vertical: 35.5.
    Projected Round (2009): Top 3 Pick.

    1/24/10: Ndamukong Suh dominated the Big XII Championship, and finished the year with 20.5 TFL and 12 sacks. He also broke up 10 passes and blocked three kicks. But let's cool the Reggie White comparisons; at 300 pounds, White ran a 4.6 40 from the defensive end position. Suh reminds me more of a Cortez Kennedy. He's the best player in the 2010 NFL Draft, but it was be a gargantuan mistake for the Rams to draft him No. 1 overall with no franchise quarterback in place.

    11/20/09: A good fit for both the 4-3 and 3-4, Ndamukong Suh has 56 tackles, 11 TFL, five sacks and eight passes broken up in 10 games as a senior. He's almost a lock to go to the Buccaneers.

    2/14/09: A monster up front for Nebraska, Ndamukong Suh notched 76 tackles, 16.5 TFL and 7.5 sacks in 2008. He also blocked two kicks and returned a pair of interceptions for touchdowns.

    8/1/08: Ndamukong Suh had a solid sophomore campaign (11 starts, six tackles for loss), but is coming off knee surgery.

  2. Gerald McCoy, Oklahoma - Scouting Report
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 295.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.01.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.96.
    Benchx225: 23. Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2010): Top 3 Pick.

    1/3/10: Gerald McCoy has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. McCoy can play both the 4-3 and 3-4, and is considered to be a top-five lock.

    11/20/09: A 4-3 under tackle and a 3-4 end, Gerald McCoy has 26 tackles, 13.5 TFL and four sacks in 10 games.

    1/10/09: I've only listed Gerald McCoy in the 2010 rankings because I never thought he'd declare as a redshirt sophomore, but he's worth noting after he picked off a Tim Tebow pass in the UPS title game. Gerald McCoy dominated with 10 TFL and 6.5 sacks in 2008, qualifying for the AP All-America Second Team.

    8/1/08: Named the Big XII Freshman of the Year, Gerald McCoy started every game for Oklahoma. In two games against Missouri, McCoy had three tackles for loss and a sack.



  3. Jared Odrick, Penn State - Scouting Report

    Projected Round (2010): Top 25 Pick.

    11/28/09: Jared Odrick has been great this year, racking up 41 tackles, 10 TFL and six sacks. He has first-round talent, but will likely go in Round 2 because of an arrest back in March.

    2/14/09: Rebounding off a season-ending ankle injury in a big way, registering 41 tackles, 9.5 TFL, 4.5 sacks and three passes broken up. He qualified for the All-Big Ten First Team.

    8/1/08: Jared Odrick was a consistent force in Penn State's starting lineup last season until he suffered a season-ending ankle injury. He managed four tackles for loss and two sacks.

  4. Alex Carrington, Arkansas State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 280.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.84.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.89.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.93.
    Benchx225: 26. Vertical: 33.
    Projected Round (2010): 2-3.

    1/28/10: Alex Carrington has been having a great week of practice at the Senior Bowl, and will be targeted in Rounds 3 or 4 as a 3-4 defensive end. Details available in the 2010 Senior Bowl section.

    5/18/09: The Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Year, Alex Carrington collected 19 TFL and 10.5 sacks. A 3-4 end at the next level.

    1/24/10: Finished a productive senior season with 10.5 TFL, 7.5 sacks and four passrs broken up.

    11/15/09: Has an advantage over prospective 3-4 ends in this draft because he plays the position in Cal's 3-4 defense. Can also play defensive tackle in the 4-3.

    2/14/09: Improved his ability to get to the quarterback, managing 11 TFL and six sacks in 2008.

    8/1/08: Will play 3-4 end in the NFL. Tyson Alualu had 52 tackles and 2.5 sacks last year.

    Projected Round (2010): 2-3.

    1/22/10: Corey Wootton had six TFL and four sacks as a senior. He's more of a 3-4 end, but can also play 4-3 left end.

    11/14/09: Not a consistent producer; disappears during stretches. Has just three TFL and two sacks in 10 games.

    5/18/09: Should be able to play up front in a 3-4 defense at the next level.

    2/12/09: If you love stats, Corey Wootton garnered 16 TFL and 10 sacks in 2008. Had minor knee surgery (is there such a thing?) in January.

    8/1/08: Arthur Jones had 17.5 tackles for loss, which is a really impressive number. That earned him a spot on the All-Big East second team.

  10. Mike Neal, Purdue
