Jacksonville Jaguars: Jasper Collins, WR, Mount Union
The Jaguars could use more talent at receiver and have taken a liking to Collins.
Mount Union has produced some quality NFL receivers with Pierre Garcon and Cecil Shorts. Collins (6-0, 190) is the latest in line and showed some nice ability at the East-West Shrine. He is very quick and runs good routes with quickness. The East-West quarterbacks struggled to get Collins the ball, but he was regularly getting separation from defensive backs. Collins ran well at his pro day and performed well.
The senior had 92 receptions for 1,694 yards with 22 touchdowns in 2012. He averaged 18.4 yards per catch. Collins is a crafty receiver. The success of Shorts and Garcon should help him.
Kansas City Chiefs: David Bass, DE, Missouri Western State
The Chiefs could use some pass-rushing depth.
Bass (6-4, 262) looked good at the East-West Shrine and flashed some pass-rush ability in the one-on-ones. He was a big part of his Division II program making a postseason run. The senior collected 61 tackles and 11.5 sacks in 2012. He had 14.5 sacks with 20 tackles for a loss as a junior.
Detroit Lions: Caleb Sturgis, K, Florida
The Lions lost the great Jason Hanson to retirement, and Sturgis could be the team's version of Blair Walsh.
Sturgis made 24-of-28 field goals in 2012. He had clutch kicks in the season opener against Texas A&M to help the Gators win on the road 20-17.
Sturgis was tremendous at the East-West Shrine. He nailed kicks in the mid-50s with ease - straight down the middle. Sturgis had plenty of leg while showing a consistent motion to maintain accuracy. He had an impressive collegiate career and looks worthy of a draft pick on the third day of the 2013 NFL Draft.
Sturgis kicked well in 2011, making 22-of-26 field goals and 31-of-31 extra points. He was a Second-Team AP All-American selection.
Oakland Raiders: Kevin Reddick, ILB, North Carolina
The Raiders could look for some help at linebacker after cutting Rolando McClain.
Reddick is a good athlete, but he didn't produce as much in college as he was capable of. The Tar Heels lost linebackers Zach Brown, Bruce Carter and Quan Sturdivant through the past few drafts, so Reddick was a shoo-in for increased production this year.
The senior was a disappointment through the early going, but definitely picked it up in the second half of the season. He racked up 85 tackles, 18.5 tackles for a loss, 6.5 sacks, one forced fumble and five passes broken up in 2012.
The 6-foot-1, 246-pounder had 71 tackles and six tackles for a loss in 2011. Reddick's sophomore season was better; he recorded 74 tackles, six tackles for a loss, two interceptions, one sack and five passes broken up.
San Francisco 49ers: Braxston Cave, C, Notre Dame
The 49ers grab a center to develop.
Cave had a good senior season and did a good job as a run-blocker. He had rough performances against Purdue's Kawann Short and Alabama. Cave (6-3, 303) needs to work on his quickness and mobility.
Arizona Cardinals: Zavier Gooden, OLB, Missouri
The Cardinals add some linebacker depth.
Gooden (6-1, 234) is a workout warrior who never played up to his athletic potential in college. The senior finished 2012 with 61 tackles, an interception and four tackles for a loss. Gooden didn't compete well against South Carolina and Alabama. He had 80 tackles with six tackles for loss and two interceptions as a junior. His best season came as a sophomore when he led Missouri with 85 tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks, one forced fumble, two interceptions and two fumbles recovered.
Cleveland Browns: Josh Boyd, DT, Mississippi State
The Browns add some defensive line help.
Boyd was a solid player for Mississippi State in 2012, but it was still somewhat of a disappointing season. He totaled 33 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 2.5 tackles for a loss and a blocked kick.
There were high expectations for Boyd after a 2011 season in which he totaled 4.5 sacks, 51 tackles and eight tackles for a loss. Teammate Fletcher Cox turned out to be the big reason for that production. Boyd did fine at the East-West Shrine, but wasn't impressive.
Oakland Raiders: Walter Stewart, OLB, Cincinnati
The Raiders need help at outside linebacker, and Stewart would add to their pathetic pass rush.
Stewart's 2012 season was off to a great start as one of the top pass-rushers in college football with five sacks through the first five games. He also had 22 tackles with two forced fumbles and seven tackles for a loss. The 6-foot-5, 249-pounder was a terror off the edge. However, a newly discovered spinal defect cost him the rest of the year and many thought his career was over.
Doctors have since cleared Stewart to return to football. The speedy edge-rusher could looks worthy of a late-round pick. He had 44 tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, six sacks, eight passes broken up and four forced fumbles in 2011.
Buffalo Bills: Mike Catapano, DE, Princeton
The Bills could use depth on the edge after Mark Anderson turned out to be a serious disappointment.
Catapano (6-3, 271) is an interesting prospect. He performed really well at the East-West Shrine to help get on the radar for NFL teams. Catapano had 12 sacks, 41 tackles and 15.5 tackles for a loss as a senior. He had five sacks in 2011.
Catapano showed some speed and strength at his pro day with good performances on the bench press (33 reps) and in the 40-yard dash.
New York Jets: Zeke Motta, S, Notre Dame
The Jets need safety help after losing LaRon Landry in free agency.
Motta (6-2, 215) was a solid player for the Fighting Irish in 2012. The year didn't end well as he had an ugly game against Alabama in the National Championship Game. The postseason events didn't get much better as Motta had a mixed performance at the East-West Shrine and ran the slowest 40 time of any safety at the Combine.
Motta is best in run support near the line of scrimmage. The senior had 77 tackles with three passes broken up, zero forced fumbles and zero interceptions this year. He collected 40 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble as a junior. Motta broke into the starting lineup as a sophomore and recorded 50 tackles. He had one interception and two passes broken up, too.
Motta lacks ball skills and play-making ability. He looks like a potential backup and special teams contributor in the NFL.
San Diego Chargers: Marcus Davis, WR, Virginia Tech
The Chargers get a receiver for Philip Rivers.
Davis (6-4, 232) is a big target who has some speed. He was the Hokies' No. 1 receiver in 2012 and would have had more production if quarterback Logan Thomas wasn't struggling with his accuracy all year. Davis had 51 receptions for 953 yards and five touchdowns in 2012.
Davis was a backup to Danny Coale and Jarrett Boykin over the past few years. Davis had 30 catches for 510 yards and five touchdowns last season. He had 19 receptions for 239 yards and two touchdowns in 2010.
San Francisco 49ers: Jeff Baca, G, UCLA
The 49ers grab some offensive line depth with the versatile Baca.
Baca (6-3, 302) bounced around from guard and tackle for the Bruins during his career. For the NFL, he should play on the inside at guard and learn how to play center.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jawan Jamison, RB, Rutgers
The Buccaneers grab a backup running back.
Jamison carried the Rutgers' offense in 2012. The redshirt sophomore averaged 4.2 yards per carry for 1,075 yards and four touchdowns. He ran for 897 yards with nine touchdowns as a freshman in 2011. The 5-foot-8, 200-pounder is a compact runner who has some quickness to go along with surprising physicality.
Carolina Panthers: Tyrone Goard, WR, Eastern Kentucky
The Panthers need some depth at wide receiver and have been showing interest in Goard.
Goard (6-4, 192) is an extremely tall, lanky receiver who had some production in the Ohio Valley Conference. He recorded 41 receptions for 900 yards and eight touchdowns in 2012. Goard had 39 receptions for 627 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior.
New Orleans Saints: Tanner Hawkinson, OT, Kansas
The Saints get some depth at tackle.
Hawkinson played pretty well for Kansas as a 3-year starter. He looks like a developmental prospect at right tackle for the NFL. Hawkinson didn't impress at the East-West Shrine, but he performed better at the Combine.
Hawkinson is a candidate to move inside to guard. He needs time to improve as a backup, but is a sleeper who could turn into a contributor.
St. Louis Rams: Earl Watford, G, James Madison
The Rams continue to improve their offensive line and have shown interest in Watford.
Watford was a standout in college, allowing less than a handful of sacks and having success as a run-blocker. The 6-foot-3, 300-pounder has some athleticism and could be groomed at center.
Dallas Cowboys: Garrett Gilkey, G, Chadron State
The Cowboys add more offensive line competition.
Gilkey (6-5, 314) already has an NFL body, and he held his own at the Senior Bowl against the better competition. Gilkey played left tackle in college, but will have to move inside in the NFL. He was a 3-year starter at left tackle for Chadron State and collected a lot of conference awards.
Pick change; previously Connor Vernon, WR
Pittsburgh Steelers: Josh Boyce, WR, TCU
The Steelers need multiple receivers. Mike Wallace left in free agency and Plaxico Burress is just a short-term stop-gap. Pittsburgh also has shown interest in Boyce.
Boyce totaled 66 receptions for 891 yards and seven touchdowns in 2012. Boyce had a solid debut as a redshirt freshman in 2010. He caught 34 passes for 646 yards and six touchdowns with Andy Dalton at quarterback. Boyce was a good weapon for Casey Pachall in 2011, hauling in 61 passes for 998 yards and nine touchdowns. Boyce (5-11, 206) shocked many with a 40 time at the Combine of 4.38 seconds.
New York Giants: Demontre Hurst, CB, Oklahoma
The Giants add some secondary depth.
Hurst played well at the East-West Shrine to help his draft stock. The 5-foot-10, 183-pounder had 59 tackles with nine pass breakups in 2012. He was a reliable defender for the Sooners. Hurst played well in 2011 and was a Second-Team All-Big XII selection. He had 55 tackles with one interception and 11 passes broken up.
Pick change; previously Reid Fragel, OT
Chicago Bears: Ty Powell, OLB, Harding
The Bears continue to build up their linebacking corps.
Powell (6-2, 246) was one of the stars at the Combine and has continued to improve his standing with NFL scouts. He impressed scouts at his pro day with his movement skills at linebacker. Powell played defensive end, safety and linebacker during college.
The senior had 15 tackles for a loss, 8.5 sacks, 40 tackles and four blocked kicks in 2012.
Minnesota Vikings: Dennis Johnson, RB, Arkansas
The Vikings could use a change-of-pace back behind Adrian Peterson.
Johnson had 757 yards on 137 carries (5.5 average) and eight touchdowns in 2012. He caught 25 passes for 160 yards and two scores as well. Gradually, Johnson earned more playing time over Knile Davis. Johnson previously took over the starting running back position after Davis was lost for the 2011 season. Johnson ran for 670 yards (6.3 average) with three touchdowns. He showed some receiving ability too, making 24 catches for 255 yards and two touchdowns that year.
Cincinnati Bengals: Kayvon Webster, CB, South Florida
The Bengals add some corner depth.
Webster (5-10, 195) played well as a senior and held his own at the East-West Shrine. He totaled 82 tackles with two sacks, three forced fumbles and six passes broken up in 2012. Webster had two interceptions as a junior.
Washington Redskins: Marquess Wilson, WR, Washington State
The Redskins bring in a big weapon for Robert Griffin.
Wilson has a nice skill set. The one thing that could be missing from his game is the speed to separate from defensive backs. Many of Wilson's catches were contested.
The 6-foot-3, 181-pounder was one of the top wide outs in college football in 2011. The sophomore made 82 catches for 1,388 yards and 12 touchdowns. He had an impactful freshman season with 55 receptions for 1,006 yards and six touchdowns.
Wilson caught 52 passes for 813 yards and five touchdowns in 2012. He left the Cougars in early November after clashing with the new coaching staff.
Indianapolis Colts: Connor Vernon, WR, Duke
The Colts grab some depth at receiver.
Vernon (6-0, 196) was very good for Duke last season, but was shut down by Florida State and defensive backs with NFL potential. He made 85 receptions for 1,074 yards and eight touchdowns in 2012. Vernon had 70 receptions for 956 yards and six touchdowns in 2011. He led the Blue Devils with 73 receptions for 973 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore. That came after a solid freshman year of 55 receptions for 746 yards and three scores.
Pick change; previously Demontre Hurst, CB
Green Bay Packers: Micah Hyde, CB, Iowa
The Packers grab some secondary help who could play corner or safety in their scheme.
Hyde recorded 82 tackles, four interceptions and seven passes broken up as a sophomore in 2010. He had 68 tackles with three interceptions and seven passes broken up in 2011. The senior collected 78 tackles, 14 passes broken up, two forced fumbles and returned 16 punts for a total of 119 yards this year. The 6-foot, 197-pounder has ideal size and some ball skills.
Seattle Seahawks: Levine Toilolo, TE, Stanford
The Seahawks can afford some luxury picks and make Toilolo one of them. He would be a nice red-zone weapon for Russell Wilson to throw to.
Toilolo (6-8, 265) backed up Coby Fleener in 2011 with Zach Ertz, but still flashed some ability for the Cardinal. If Fleener and Ertz weren't ahead of him, Toilolo could've produced a lot more. He caught 25 passes for 343 yards and six touchdowns in 2011. Toilolo was a backup to Ertz this year, but still recorded 24 catched for 393 yards and four touchdowns.
Toilolo is adept at working the middle seam, and Stanford really used its tight ends well down the middle of the field. He was an honorable mention All-Pac-12 selection in 2011.
Houston Texans: Spencer Ware, RB, LSU
The Texans grab some running back depth.
Ware had 367 yards on 94 carries (3.9 average) as part of a committee approach this season. LSU literally gave carries to five different running backs. He didn't workout at the Combine.
Ware (5-10, 228) was the starting back in 2011, but he finished second on the team in rushing. LSU regularly rotates its backs and, while that keeps the backs fresh, they are unable to put together big statistics or have breakout seasons. Ware ran for 707 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2011.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Zac Dysert, QB, Miami of Ohio
The Bucs are lacking at the quarterback position.
Dysert (6-2, 224) completed 63 percent of his passes in 2012 for a total of 3,483 yards, 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. The redshirt senior could have helped his draft stock by playing well against Cincinnati, but he had a mixed day. Dysert also didn't perform well against Ohio State in an opportunity to excel against good competition. He didn't impress at the Senior Bowl either.
Dysert saw his first action in 2009 when he completed 62 percent of his passes for 2,614 yards with 12 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. Dysert completed 64.7 percent of his passes as a sophomore for 2,406 yards with 13 touchdowns and 12 picks. He had a 65.8 completion percentage with 3,513 yards and 23 touchdowns in 2011. His pick total also dropped by one to 11. Dysert also ran for four touchdowns.
Cincinnati Bengals: Tavarress King, WR, Georgia
The Bengals don't have a real need at receiver, but depth doesn't hurt.
King (6-0, 192) totaled 42 receptions for 950 yards and eight touchdowns in 2012. He had some disappointing games as a senior. King was shut out by Florida and had underwhelming performances against South Carolina and Tennessee. He stepped up in the SEC Championship with five receptions for 142 yards against Alabama. King was solid, but unspectacular, at the Senior Bowl. He ran well at the Combine with a 4.47-second 40.
With A.J. Green and Kris Durham having graduated, King was the No. 1 receiver in 2011 for quarterback Aaron Murray. However, he didn't produce as much as expected. King had modest results in 2011, snagging 47 receptions for 705 yards and eight touchdowns.
Atlanta Falcons: Hugh Thornton, G, Illinois
The Falcons could use some offensive line help.
Thornton (6-4, 310) struggled in the one-on-ones at the Senior Bowl. His pass protection is going to need a lot of development in the NFL. Thornton is a good athlete, but he really had a hard time with speed-rushers. Thornton was impressive at the weigh-in as he is extremely well-built rather than a fat offensive lineman. He was a 3-year starter at guard for Illinois. His run blocking is much better than his pass protection.
Baltimore Ravens: Steve Williams, CB, California
The Ravens continue to add secondary depth.
Williams (5-9, 181) was one of the top defensive backs at the Combine. He ran well in the 40 and excelled in the field drills. Williams really used the time in Indianapolis to differentiate himself and may have caused some teams to reevaluate his ranking. The junior had 80 tackles, three interceptions, 10 passes broken up and a forced fumble this season. He totaled 45 tackles with two interceptions and 11 passes broken up in 2011.
Baltimore Ravens: Reid Fragel, OT, Ohio State
The Ravens add some depth to their offensive line.
Fragel (6-8, 308) was a tight end prior to his senior season. He switched to right tackle and showed some nice potential to be an edge-blocker. Fragel is raw, but could develop into a right tackle competitor.
Pick change; previously Garrett Gilkey, G
Houston Texans: Rod Sweeting, CB, Georgia Tech
The Texans acquire some cornerback depth.
Sweeting (5-11, 189) played well in 2012. He collected 58 tackles, six tackles for a loss, one sack, one interception and seven passes broken up. Sweeting has a nice physical skill set and produced a quality 2011 season. He had 56 tackles, three interceptions, two forced fumbles and 10 passes defensed.
Sweeting did a good job in his collegiate finale of limiting USC receivers Marqise Lee and Robert Woods. Sweeting followed that up with a solid showing at the East-West Shrine.
Tennessee Titans: Chris Jones, DT, Bowling Green
The Titans get some interior defensive line depth.
Jones (6-2, 302) demonstrated pass-rushing ability over the past three seasons. He had a huge senior season chasing down the quarterback, making 12.5 sacks. Jones also had 42 tackles, 19 tackles for a loss and two forced fumbles. He recorded 47 tackles with 14 tackles for a loss, 8.5 sacks and three forced fumbles as a junior. Jones had 39 tackles with 11 tackles for a loss, six sacks and a forced fumble in 2010.
Jones is a sleeper prospect who could be a nice mid-rounder.
Baltimore Ravens: Vince Williams, ILB, Florida State
Baltimore brings in another linebacker competitor.
The thickly built Williams (6-0, 247) didn't produce much in college, but he helped himself with a strong performance at the Senior Bowl. Williams had 59 tackles with 6.5 tackles for a loss, one sack and two passes broken up this year. He collected 54 tackles, two sacks and an interception in 2011.
Williams could play on the inside of a 4-3 or 3-4 defense. He looks more like a two-down defender if he develops well.
Kansas City Chiefs: Everett Dawkins, DT, Florida State
The Chiefs get more depth for their defensive line.
Dawkins had 26 tackles, 1.5 tackles for a loss, .5 sacks and one pass broken up in 2012. The 6-foot-2, 292-pounder became a full-time starter as a junior in 2011 and was an All-ACC honorable mention. He had 25 tackles with three tackles for a loss, two sacks, a forced fumble and an interception. Dawkins recorded 39 tackles with six tackles for a loss and 2.5 sacks as a sophomore. He has some quickness as a gap penetrator and looks like a potential backup in a 4-3 defense in the NFL.
Oakland Raiders: Joseph Fauria, TE, UCLA
The Raiders could use a pass-receiving tight end, and Fauria is a red-zone play-maker.
Fauria (6-7, 255) is a quality receiving option as part of a tight end stable. His quickness, good route-running and good hands should let him be a nice part of a passing offense. Fauria is tremendous in the red zone. He had 45 receptions for 620 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2012.
Fauria is an improved blocker, but needs to continue to get better there. He was UCLA's second-leading receiver with 39 catches for 481 yards and six touchdowns in 2011. Fauria was a backup in 2010 after sitting out 2009 because he transferred in from Notre Dame.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Johnny Adams, CB, Michigan State
The Steelers add some secondary depth.
Adams (5-11, 175) was an All-Big Ten selection in 2011. He had 51 tackles, three interceptions, six passes broken up and four tackles for a loss. 2012 was an ugly year for the senior.
A common refrain emerged early in the year as Adams was beaten for a long reception downfield after mistiming his jump in the Spartans' season opener against Boise State. He was beaten for another long touchdown against Notre Dame, missed a tackle on a touchdown run and was called for a pass interference on another deep pass. The pattern persisted as Adamas was beaten for a long touchdown, and the game-winning score, against Ohio State.
Adams played better in the second half of the season and finished with 35 tackles, three interceptions and seven passes broken up.
I like your write up on Trubisky. I also like the gutsy move of Mahomes at #2 especially with Garrett on the board. However, there are glaring mistakes elsewhere. No way, the Saints draft a RB in 1st round after paying Peterson to be the primary back up to Ingram. Plus, they desperately need talent on the defensive side of the ball. Also, the Browns 2nd pick wouldn't be a rush OLB when they are converting to a base 4-3 and have Jamie Collins at the Sam.
