Quanterus Smith, DE, Western Kentucky
Height: 6-5. Weight: 250. Arm: 33.28. Projected 40 Time: 4.69. Projected Round (2013): 5-6. 4/24/13: A late season ACL tear sunk Smith's draft stock even though he recorded 12.5 sacks in 2012. He also had 38 tackles with 18.5 tackles for a loss and three forced fumbles. Smith returned a fumble 75 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter against Florida Atlantic.
Smith started the year well with a three-sack game against Alabama. He destroyed Crimson Tide right tackle D.J. Fluker. Smith's sacks came in bunches this season. He has four games with sacks and eight games without any. Smith had five sacks against Florida International.
In 2011, Smith totaled 7.5 sacks, 38 tackles and 11 tackles for a loss. He had 47 tackles with four sacks as a sophomore in 2010.
Smith would be higher in the rankings if he wasn't so undersized. Smith looks like he will need to move to outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense if he can't add a significant amount of weight.
Jack Doyle, TE, Western Kentucky
Height: 6-5. Weight: 254. Arm: 32 1/8. Hand: 9 3/8. Projected 40 Time: 4.74. Projected Round (2013): 7-FA. 4/24/13: Doyle had a good senior season with 53 receptions for 566 yards and five touchdowns. It was consistent with his junior year catches and yards as he hauled in 52 passes for 614 yards (zero touchdowns) in 2011. Doyle needs more strength for the NFL and did not impress at the Senior Bowl. He didn't attend the Combine.
Come on Walt. You have the Vikings drafting for need. They did a fairly good job if FA filling needs. I could see the RB in the second because thats value. The only needs they have are at dt and safety. I hope they pick highest rated player.
