  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
