Rod Sweeting, CB, Georgia Tech
Height: 6-0. Weight: 184. Projected 40 Time: 4.52. Projected Round (2013): 3-4. 1/31/13: Sweeting played well against Virginia Tech in the season opener. He collected 58 tackles, six tackles for a loss, one interception and seven passes broken up in 2012. Some draft pundits felt that Sweeting had a disappointing year, but he is a good sleeper prospect. There were some scouts at the East-West Shrine that felt that Sweeting was in the running as the best player there.
9/1/12: 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 had 38 tackles and a pick as a sophomore. He could move easily move into the second day of the draft if he improves his ball skills as a senior.
Omoregie Uzzi, G, Georgia Tech
Height: 6-3. Weight: 300. Projected 40 Time: 5.25. Projected Round (2013): 5-6. 2/9/13: Uzzi played well against Virginia Tech in the opening game, and then did well against Virginia, Florida State and USC. He has excellent mobility and would be a perfect fit for a zone-blocking system. Some teams in the NFL will want to move him to center, which could be a good fit.
8/24/12: Uzzi is an undersized, but athletic, guard who has been an All-ACC performer for the Yellow Jackets. He is very mobile and has no problem hitting blocks on the second level of the defense.
Uzzi is a perfect fit in the Georgia Tech option running attack. As a result, he should go to a zone-blocking team in the NFL that requires linemen to be mobile in order to create a moving wall. Uzzi probably does not have the bulk or strength to function in a power man-blocking scheme. Perhaps he could move to center.
T.J. Barnes, DT, Georgia Tech
Height: 6-7. Weight: 333. Projected 40 Time: 5.45. Projected Round (2013): 7-FA. 1/30/13: Barnes had 28 tackles, five tackles for a loss and 1.5 sacks this season.
8/25/12: Barnes had 11 tackles with a sack in 2011 and was quiet. He occupies blocks at the line of scrimmage, but does not do a good job of disengaging to get in on tackles.
Another week another mock and more disparity and players moving up and down boards. The boards are becoming more and more clear. I think I am more confident on what teams will go for and will not so I may throw in a trade for a little wrinkle if it does not make it more complicated. If not I will just mention who should trade. So, without further adieu here we go!
