  1. Mike Iupati, Idaho - Scouting Report
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 331.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.25.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.26.
    Benchx225: 27. Arm: 34 3/4.
    Projected Round (2010): Top 30 Pick.

    1/31/10: While Mike Iupati was solid in run-blocking, he was completely abused in pass protection by Geno Atkins. Iupati was beaten numerous times, was called for holding once, and should have been whistled for holding two other times. Let's not get carried away and call Iupati the best offensive lineman in the 2010 NFL Draft, like Mike Mayock did before the Senior Bowl. Iupati is a tremendous run-blocking guard who is raw in pass protection.

    1/28/10: The consensus is that Mike Iupati has been the best player at the Senior Bowl. Details available in the 2010 Senior Bowl section.

    10/24/09: A former native of American Samoa, the fleet-footed Mike Iupati has been dominant this year in pass protection and run-blocking. His athleticism will allow him to shine at the Combine, where his numbers could propel him into the first round.



  2. Jon Asamoah, Illinois
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 305.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.12.
    Combine 40 Time: .
    Benchx225: . Arm: 33.
    Projected Round (2010): 2-3.

    1/26/10: Weighed in at a disappointing 6-4, 300 at the Senior Bowl. Had the shortest arms (31 inches) of all the offensive linemen.

    1/17/10: A four-year starter, Jon Asamoah was voted to the All-Big Ten Second Team.

    2/10/09: An honorable All-Big Ten mention in 2008, having started 25 games in the past two years.

  3. John Jerry, Ole Miss
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 335.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.32.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.15.
    Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: 31. Arm: 34.
    Projected Round (2010): 3-4.

    1/17/10: Teams that prefer larger linemen like the Eagles, Cowboys and Vikings will be all over John Jerry in the middle rounds. Jerry was an All-SEC first-teamer.

    10/24/09: Named SEC Lineman of the Week in early October. Will fit with a team that prefers large linemen like the Eagles.

    2/10/09: Will likely follow his older brother, Perry Jerry, into the NFL as a first-day selection.

    7/28/08: Indianapolis residents should think about getting earthquake insurance soon. When John Jerry runs a 40 at the combine, many homes could be destroyed. Jerry, obviously a punishing run-blocker, started nine contests as a sophomore.

  4. Mitch Petrus, Arkansas
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 307.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.17.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.29.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.25.
    Benchx225: 45. Arm: 33 3/4.
    Projected Round (2010): 3-4.

    2/27/10: Mitch Petrus notched a whopping 45 reps of 225 pounds on Friday, tying a Combine record. The bench press doesn't mean all that much in the long run (unless you're Al Davis), but that's still an impressive feat.

    1/17/10: Started 12 games for Arkansas this year and qualified for the AP All-America Second Team.

    2/10/09: Academically ineligible. Missed the 2008 season.

    5/25/08: In his first full season as a starter, Mitch Petrus qualified for the All-SEC second team, thanks to the production of Darren McFadden and Felix Jones.





  5. Marshall Newhouse, TCU
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 322.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.09.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.00.
    Benchx225: 25. Arm: 34.
    Projected Round (2010): 3-4.

    3/12/10: Didn't run at his Pro Day, but weighed in three pounds heavier. This may only fool Al Davis further into thinking that such a massive man can run a quick 40.

    2/28/10: I've had the Raiders taking Marshall Newhouse in the third round of my 2010 NFL Mock Draft for a reason - Newhouse ran a 5.00 today at 6-4, 319.

    2/27/10: Al Davis will likely think Marshall Newhouse is a great player.

    1/17/10: Marshall Newhouse, an All-Mountain West First Team member, performed well at the East-West Shrine game and will be attending the Combine.

  6. Mike Johnson, Alabama
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 312.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.20.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.37.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.31.
    Benchx225: . Arm: 32 1/2.
    Projected Round (2010): 4-5.

    1/17/10: An AP First-Team All-American, Mike Johnson is my No. 1 guard for zone-blocking teams.

    2/10/09: A major reason for Alabama's return to glory. Mike Johnson was voted to the All-SEC Second Team. He started every game, 12 at guard and one at left tackle.

    7/28/08: The bookend tackle across from Andre Smith, Mike Johnson started every game as a sophomore. Johnson seems like he would be a better fit as a guard at the next level.

  7. Shawn Lauvao, Arizona State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 304.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.29.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.29.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.25.
    Benchx225: 33. Arm: 33.
    Projected Round (2010): 4-5.

    1/17/10: An All-Pac 10 Second Team member. Will participate at the Combine.

    2/10/09: After logging nine starts as a sophomore, Shawn Lauvao was an All-Pac 10 honorable mention in 2008.

  8. Brandon Carter, Texas Tech
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 319.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.52.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.36.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.24.
    Benchx225: 24. Arm: 33 1/2.
    Projected Round (2010): 5-6.

    3/13/10: Brandon Carter did a great job shedding 10 pounds for his Pro Day. He ran a 5.24 - .12 seconds faster than his Combine time.

    1/17/10: One of the scariest people in America, Brandon Carter was an AP All-American third-teamer despite a one-game suspension. Transitioning to a real scheme could be a challenge.

    2/10/09: If you've watched any Texas Tech games, he's the crazy guy with paint all over his face who looks like he just escaped from the mental hospital. Brandon Carter was an All-Big XII second-teamer.

    7/28/08: And you thought John Jerry was huge... Brandon Carter eats defensive linemen for dinner and tops it off with a few safeties for dessert. In all seriousness, the monstrous Carter started 13 games in 2007, though it's popular belief that he threatened to eat the entire coaching staff if they put him on the bench.

  9. Sergio Render, Virginia Tech
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 311.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.20.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.40.
    Benchx225: 28. Arm: .
    Projected Round (2010): 5-6.

    1/17/10: Made the All-ACC Second Team despite playing through a chest injury toward the end of the year.

    2/10/09: A member of the 2008 All-ACC Second Team, Sergio Render just went through arthroscopic shoulder surgery. He'll be good to go in August.

    7/28/08: Earned the starting job right away in 2006 despite being a freshman. Sergio Render improved his play as a sophomore. Oh, and he benches more than 425 pounds, so don't try to steal his lunch money.

  10. Thomas Austin, Clemson
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 306.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.12.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.36.
    Benchx225: 33. Arm: .
    Projected Round (2010): 5-6.

    1/17/10: An All-ACC second-teamer, Thomas Austin can play both guard and center.

    2/11/09: Enjoyed a great junior campaign and was named to the All-ACC Second Team.

    7/28/08: Thomas Austin started 12 contests as a sophomore. He's versatile and can play guard as well.



  11. Cord Howard, Georgia Tech
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 308.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.23.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.12.
    Benchx225: 25. Arm: .
    Projected Round (2010): 6-7.

    1/17/10: After earning a spot on the All-ACC Second Team in 2008, Cord Howard was an All-ACC first-teamer as a senior.

  12. Shelley Smith, Colorado State

    Projected 40 Time: 5.08.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.11.
    Benchx225: 26. Arm: 32 1/2.
    Projected Round (2010): 6-7.

    1/17/10: Had eight starts in nine games (ankle injury sidelined him at the beginning of the year), earning an All-Mountain West honorable mention.

    2/10/09: Isn't Shelley Smith a female sideline reporter for ESPN? At any rate, this Shelley Smith was an All-Mountain West second-teamer. He didn't surrender a sack or get whistled for a single penalty all year.

  13. Reggie Stephens, Iowa State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 334.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.24.
    Combine 40 Time: .
    Benchx225: . Arm: .
    Projected Round (2010): 6-7.

    2/10/09: An All-Big XII honorable mention.

    Projected 40 Time: 5.17.

    Benchx225: . Arm: .
    Projected Round (2010): 7-FA.

    2/10/09: Matt McCracken has made 33 consecutive starts. While level of competition is an issue, it should be noted that he made the Division 1-AA AP All-America Second Team as a junior.

  15. Andrew Lewis, Oklahoma State

    Projected 40 Time: 5.29.

    2/10/09: Missed some time in 2008 with a wrist injury.

    7/28/08: Earned a starting role in the middle of the 2007 season. Iowa is renowned for its talented NFL linemen, so Dan Doering has a lot to live up to.

    Projected 40 Time: 5.01.
    Combine 40 Time: .

    Projected Round (2010): 7-FA.

    2/10/09: Like everyone else at Tennessee, Jacques McClendon saw his stock drop considerably.

    7/28/08: A massive lineman who was inserted into the starting lineup when Eric Young was knocked out for the year, Jacques McClendon was part of a unit that surrendered just four quarterback sacks on the season. McClendon started one game as a freshman.

  19. Joe Thomas, Pittsburgh
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 302.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.31.
    Combine 40 Time: .
    Benchx225: . Arm: .
    Projected Round (2010): 7-FA.

    7/28/08: Another Joe Thomas, but it's safe to say this one won't be as good as the one who came out of Wisconsin. Thomas started seven games at guard for Pittsburgh as a sophomore. Also played right tackle.

  20. Kurtis Gregory, Missouri
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 305.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.27.

    2/10/09: Debacled by a torrent of tests, pop quizzes and oral reports, Chris DeGeare missed all of 2008.

    5/25/08: Chris DeGeare is academically ineligible for 2008. I don't know why football is even remotely tied to academics, but that's an argument for another time.

  22. Charlie Tanner, Texas
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 305.
