  1. Keenan Allen*, WR, California
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 206. Arm: 32.68 Hand: 10.08.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
    Projected Round (2013): 1-2.

    4/24/13: Allen’s stock has slid because of a poor 40 time at his workout in the 4.7- to 4.8-second range. There are also reports that he failed the drug test at the Combine, too. It is conceivable that Allen will fall out of the first round.

    Allen was held back all year by sub-par quarterback play from his brother Zach Maynard, but the wide out still managed to illustrate that he is a good player. A knee injury knocked Allen out for the final three games. He totaled 61 receptions for 737 yards and six touchdowns in his shortened season. He also averaged 14 yards per punt return, plus scored a touchdown. Allen played a lot better than his stats indicate. He missed the final three games with the knee injury. Allen has good size with speed and quickness.

    8/17/12: Allen would be the first receiver selected in most draft classes. At the same time, he could easily make a run at being the top receiver even if Woods is in the same draft class. Allen had a very good debut in 2010. He caught 46 passes for 490 yards and five touchdowns as a freshman.

    Allen was even better in 2011, hauling in 98 passes for 1,342 yards and six touchdowns. He is faster than many defensive backs expect and has a second gear to explode downfield. Allen runs the tough routes over the middle and in the shallow part of the field. He is dangerous with the ball in his hands and gets good yardage after the catch.

    Allen is a physical receiver and attacks the football in the air. Some teams will probably prefer him over Woods.

  2. Brian Schwenke, C, California
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 314. Arm: 30 7/8. Hand: 9 1/2.
    40 Time: 4.99.
    Projected Round (2013): 3-4.

    4/24/13: Schwenke continued his upward trend with a great Combine. He had a fast 40 time and did well on the bench press (31 reps). Schwenke performed well at the Senior Bowl, too, which really helped his draft stock. He showed the ability to play in a power man-blocking scheme as well as a zone-blocking scheme. Schwenke is quick and athletic. He does a good job of moving to blocks and executing double teams.

    In college, Schwenke started 36 games on the inside of the offensive line with 16 starts at left guard, 12 at center and eight at right guard. He would fit best as a center in the NFL. Schwenke was a First-Team All-Pac-12 pick by the coaches this year. He should add some weight in a NFL strength and conditioning program.

  3. Marc Anthony, CB, California
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 196. Arm: 30 1/2. Hand: 9.
    40 Time: 4.63.
    Projected Round (2013): 4-6.

    4/24/13: Anthony had a mixed Senior Bowl; some moments he flashed and other times he was beaten. Anthony has a skill set that could be developed in the NFL. He totaled five interceptions during his career. Anthony had 12 passes broken up as a junior before recording only three as a senior.

    Anthony had a disappointing showing at the Combine.

  4. Steve Williams*, CB, California
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 181.
    40 Time: 4.42.
    Projected Round (2013): 4-6.

    4/24/13: Williams 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.

  5. Aaron Tipoti, DT, California
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 274.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.99.
    Projected Round (2013): FA.

    4/24/13: Tipoti totaled 31 tackles with .5 tackles for a loss this year. He wasn’t invited to the Combine.

    8/25/12: Tipoti had 25 tackles, four tackles for a loss and 1.5 sacks in 2011. He needs to add weight for the NFL or move to defensive end.
