Stansly Maponga*, DE/OLB, TCU
Height: 6-2. Weight: 265. Projected 40 Time: 4.75. Projected Round (2013): 4-5. 1/30/13: Maponga totaled 26 tackles, four sacks and two forced fumbles this year. He had a disappointing season and needs to develop some pass-rushing moves. Maponga made a mistake entering the 2013 NFL Draft.
8/27/12: Maponga was a play-maker for TCU in 2011, and he was a disruptive force as a pass-rusher. The speedy Maponga totaled 55 tackles with 13.5 tackles for a loss, nine sacks and five forced fumbles. Not only is he quick off the edge, he has natural pad level and leverage to turn the corner.
Maponga broke into the starting lineup as a freshman and recorded 32 tackles with 2.5 sacks. TCU is planning on him being a pass-rushing force in 2012. If the junior duplicates his 2011 season, he could declare for the 2013 NFL Draft. Maponga looks like a natural 3-4 outside linebacker.
Josh Boyce*, WR, TCU
Height: 5-11. Weight: 203. Projected 40 Time: 4.42. Projected Round (2013): 4-6. 2/16/13: Boyce totaled 66 receptions for 891 yards and seven touchdowns this year. He probably should've returned for his senior season.
8/17/12: 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 last year, hauling in 61 passes for 998 yards and nine touchdowns. Boyce had a massive game with five receptions for 163 yards and three touchdowns against Boise State. He has some real speed to burn.
Blaize Foltz, G, TCU
Height: 6-4. Weight: 310. Projected 40 Time: 5.23. Projected Round (2013): 4-6. 2/9/13: Foltz blocked well for TCU. He did his part to keep a clean pocket and open up running lanes. Foltz performed well at the East-West Shrine and earned the praise of scouts. They like how Foltz already has NFL size with some ability as a pass-protector and a run-blocker. He could be a good value pick on the third day.
8/24/12: Foltz, a first-year starter, was a First-Team All-Mountain West pick in 2011. He played right guard and was very consistent for the Horned Frogs. TCU averaged 208.6 yards per game on the ground with over 440 yards per game in total offense. The line also allowed on average only one sack per game.
Foltz should stay at guard as a senior. He could be a sleeper pick who is nice value early on the third day of the draft.
Kenny Cain, ILB, TCU
Height: 6-1. Weight: 225. Projected 40 Time: 4.60. Projected Round (2013): 6-FA. 1/30/13: Cain played well for TCU in 2012. The senior had been a backup to Tank Carder and Tanner Brock earlier in his career. Cain had 86 tackles, 5.5 tackles for a loss, two interceptions and four passes broken up this year. He will have to move to outside linebacker in the NFL. Cain filled in for Brock in 2011 after an injury and totaled 72 tackles, four passes broken up and an interception.
@uhsfk "someone told me that this would be a good pick" was literally where i stopped. "he could be like zeke in dallas. im not saying hes going to be like zeke in dallas. He should be like zeke in dallas"
Pats weakest position is DT? They haven't allowed a rusher more than 90 yards in 24 games. The rotation of Branch, Brown, and Valentine had been very good this year, and they like PSer Woodrow Hamilton a lot as well.
