2010 NFL Draft Pro Day Results

Pro Day Dates: March 31, 2010





USC

Charles Brown, OT, USC Scouting Report
Height: 6-5. Weight: 303.
Projected 40 Time: 5.06.
Pro Day 40 Time: 5.25.
Benchx225: 21. Arm: 35 1/4.
Projected Round (2010): Top 25 Pick.

3/31/10: Pulled a hamstring during his Pro Day 40.

2/26/10: Charles Brown’s weight was a big concern going into the Combine. Brown was around 290 during the 2009 season, and sub-300-pound tackles just don’t go in the first round. Fortunately, Brown weighed in at 303 pounds, while his arms measured 35 1/4 inches. Brown is now a sure first-rounder and a possible candidate at No. 14 for Seattle.

1/18/10: An All-Pac 10 first-teamer, Charles Brown will be targeted by zone-blocking teams toward the end of the first round. As Matt pointed out, his weigh-in at the Combine and Senior Bowl is huge.

10/24/09: Has emerged as a top-20 left tackle with a brilliant senior season. A former tight end with a lot of athleticism, Charles Brown is going to have a great Combine.

2/9/09: Thankfully, Charlie Brown doesn’t have to kick field goals with some chick holding for him. An All-Pac 10 honorable mention, Brown is an athletic left tackle who has a good chance of being drafted on Day 1.

7/27/08: Charles Brown has yet to start a game in his collegiate career, but he’ll have the opportunity to do so with Sam Baker in Atlanta. Brown projects as a zone-blocking lineman at the next level.

Everson Griffen, DE, USC Scouting Report
Height: 6-3. Weight: 268.
Projected 40 Time: 4.68.
Combine 40 Time: 4.64.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.59.
Benchx225: 32. Vertical: .
Projected Round (2010): Top 32 Picks.

3/31/10: Everson Griffen ran an impressive 4.59 40 at his Pro Day. Measuring in at 6-3, 268, Griffen looked like he was in great shape.

1/3/09: Everson Griffen has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. Griffen is a 4-3 left end in the pros whose production hasn’t quite matched the hype. I think going back to school and rebounding with a strong senior campaign would have been the right move. He could still be drafted in the top 20, but it’s not anywhere near a lock.

11/14/09: Everson Griffen put on a lot of weight this year, but he’s actually playing better. He has 8.5 TFL and seven sacks in eight contests.

2/12/09: Everson Griffen didn’t really meet expectations as a sophomore, notching six TFL and 4.5 sacks. However, his athleticism will get him some looks in the first round.

7/30/08: A beast of a defensive end, Everson Griffen is extremely quick for his imposing size. If he runs a 4.5, he could go in the top five. As a measuring stick, Vernon Gholston, chosen sixth overall in 2008, ran a 4.65 at about the same size. As a true freshman, Everson Griffen had 5.5 sacks despite starting only two games.

Stafon Johnson, RB, USC
Height: 5-11. Weight: 214.
Projected 40 Time: 4.43.
Combine 40 Time: 4.66.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.62.
Benchx225: 13. Vertical: . Broad: 9-6.
Projected Round (2010): 7-FA.

3/1/10: I want to give a lot of credit to Stafon Johnson for bench pressing at the Combine. After his near-fatal accident, it took a lot of guts to bench again. I wouldn’t have done so.

1/16/10: Played only four games because of a horrific weightlifting accident. Fortunately, he has recovered and will play in the Senior Bowl.

2/6/09: Stafon Johnson rushed for 705 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior. He only received 138 carries because of the crowded backfield. Maybe some of these running backs should go to, I don’t know, other schools?

7/25/08: Of all the 500 running backs USC has, Stafon Johnson looks to be the most promising. Backing up Chauncey Washington, Johnson totaled 673 yards and five touchdowns on a 6.9 rushing clip. He caught only four passes, but his excellent 40 may make some teams (cough, Titans) forget about that.

Joe McKnight, RB, USC
Height: 5-11. Weight: 200.
Projected 40 Time: 4.39.
Combine 40 Time: 4.42.
Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
Benchx225: 18. Vertical: 36.5. Broad: 9-11.
Projected Round (2010): 2-4.

3/31/10: Weighed in at 200 pounds at his Pro Day and participated in the drills, but didn’t run the 40.

1/9/10: Joe McKnight has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. The writing was on the wall here, as the Communist NCAA was going to come down hard on him. McKnight is very versatile and has a great chance of being drafted on Day 2 if he lives up to his expectations at the Combine.

10/10/09: When Matt Barkley needed to put together a game-winning drive against Ohio State, he went to Joe McKnight early and often. McKnight even had some tough carries in between the tackles. His weakness is picking up blitzes, but that is something that can be taught.

2/6/09: Joe McKnight did a good job putting on some bulk. However, he carried the ball just 89 times in 2008. He was impressive when he did get the rock, rushing for 659 yards (7.4 YPC) and two touchdowns. He also caught 21 balls for 193 yards.

7/25/08: Joe McKnight has a lot of carries where he loses yardage, but he has the speed to break long gains – at the college level. I don’t know how that’ll work in the NFL. However, he does have blazing speed, so he should make for a good return specialist and third-down back.





Texas

Colt McCoy, QB, Texas Scouting Report
Height: 6-1. Weight: 216.
Projected 40 Time: 4.71.
Combine 40 Time: 4.77.
Hand: 9 3/8.
Projected Round (2010): 3-4.

3/31/10: Colt McCoy completed all 58 of his pass attempts during his Pro Day. Most reports, including Mike Lombardi’s, cite that McCoy was “only average.” He might be chosen in Day 2, but the shorter clone of Kyle Orton should probably be chosen in Round 4.

3/11/10: Colt McCoy scored a 25 on his Wonderlic exam. Nothing of significance there.

2/27/10: Colt McCoy measured in at just 6-1, 216. For a guy whose absolute upside is Kyle Orton, being 6-1 is yet another hurdle to overcome in addition to his weak arm strength and unfamiliarity with a pro-style offense. It’s difficult to imagine that McCoy will be selected in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

1/15/10: Colt McCoy doesn’t make reads. He lacks an NFL arm. He’s small and fragile (see the scrimmage against Alabama). He needs to transition into an NFL offense and learn how to play under center. I don’t see why he would be any sort of NFL prospect.

5/10/09: Colt McCoy shouldn’t be a Round 1-3 prospect, but he happens to be a great fit for Kansas City and Denver’s offense, which requires its quarterbacks to play out of the shotgun, maintain no arm strength and not make reads.

1/13/09: Colt McCoy lit up Ohio State’s slow defense in the Cool Ranch Doritos Fiesta Bowl, going 41-of-59 for 414 yards, two touchdowns and a pick.

12/20/08: With a completion percentage of 77.6, a YPA of 9.2, a passing touchdown-to-interception ratio of 32 to 7, 576 rushing yards and 10 rushing scores, many can argue that Colt McCoy should have won the Heisman.

10/12/08: Forget the sophomore slump. Colt McCoy is red-hot this season. His completion percentage is a shade off 80! He has 17 touchdowns and just three picks. His YPA is 9.9. He was brilliant against Oklahoma, going 28-of-35, 277 yards and a score.

3/26/08: Colt McCoy had a disappointing sophomore year, throwing 18 picks after just seven in 2006. His completion percentage dropped three points as well.

2007: McCoy threw interceptions like a madman in a 20-point loss to Kansas State. Through five games, he has way more picks than he had as a freshman.

Roddrick Muckelroy, OLB, Texas
Height: 6-2. Weight: 246.
Projected 40 Time: 4.62.
Combine 40 Time: 4.73.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.73.
Benchx225: 19. Vertical: .
Projected Round (2010): 3-4.

1/8/10: Roddrick Muckelroy qualified for the All-Big XII Second Team with 78 tackles, a whopping nine TFL, four passes broken up and two sacks.

2/16/09: An All-Big XII honorable mention, Roddrick Muckelroy had 102 tackles, 3.5 TFL and three passes broken up as a junior.

8/2/08: Roddrick Muckelroy started just one game as a sophomore, but he was productive coming off the bench. He had 67 tackles (six for loss) and three sacks.

Jordan Shipley, WR, Texas
Height: 5-11. Weight: 193.
Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
Combine 40 Time: 4.57.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.54.
Vertical: 36.5. Broad: 10-0.
Projected Round (2010): 4-5.

3/1/10: Given his injury history and age, Jordan Shipley needed a strong Combine to cement his Day 2 status. That didn’t happen. Shipley ran a 4.57 in the 40, which will likely push him into Day 3.

1/19/10: Though Colt McCoy suffered an injury on the first drive of the second national championship this year, Jordan Shipley didn’t use that as an excuse to pack it in. Instead, he carried the Longhorns, logging 10 catches for 122 yards and two touchdowns. Shipley finished the season with 116 grabs, 1,485 yards and 13 scores. He also averaged 13.0 yards per punt return with two touchdowns. Shipley will likely be targeted by a spread team like the Chiefs or 49ers.

10/10/09: No surprise that Jordan Shipley has produced great numbers (36 catches, 436 yards in four games). Shipley also has a punt return for a touchdown.

1/4/09: Granted a medical redshirt and will return for the 2009 season. Colt McCoy has to be thrilled.

10/19/08: Jordan Shipley has stepped up as a solid No. 2 option for Colt McCoy; he has 43 catches, 569 yards and nine touchdowns in just seven games. He caught 11 balls for 112 yards against Oklahoma.

Earl Thomas, FS, Texas Scouting Report
Height: 5-10. Weight: 208.
Projected 40 Time: 4.41.
Combine 40 Time: 4.44.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.35.
Benchx225: 21. Vertical: .
Projected Round (2009): Top 20 Pick.

4/1/10: Earl Thomas ran a 4.35 at his Pro Day. His draft range is between No. 13 (San Francisco) and No. 20 (Houston). I find it hard to believe that the Texans would pass on him.

1/9/10: Earl Thomas has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. Thomas was only a redshirt sophomore, but he’s making the right move. There’s a good chance he gets selected in the top 20, so what’s the point in going back to school and risking injury?

3/13/09: Despite being just a redshirt freshman, Earl Thomas was an All-Big XII honorable mention. He broke up 11 passes, and also collected 70 tackles, three TFL and two picks.





UCLA

Kyle Bosworth, OLB, UCLA
Height: 6-1. Weight: 236.
Projected 40 Time: 4.74.
Combine 40 Time: 4.69.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.58.
Benchx225: 25. Vertical: .
Projected Round (2010): 6-7.

1/8/10: Nephew of Brian Bosworth, Kyle had 77 tackles and 7.5 TFL in 2009.

Ryan Moya, TE, UCLA
Height: 6-3. Weight: 238.
Projected 40 Time: 4.64.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.65.
Benchx225: . Vertical: . Arm: .
Projected Round (2010): 7-FA.

1/21/10: Only 18 catches for 189 yards as a senior.

2/8/09: Stepping in for an injured Logan Paulsen, Ryan Moya finished his junior campaign with 38 receptions, 364 yards and three touchdowns. He qualified for the All-Pac 10 Second Team.



Houston

Fendi Onobun, TE, Houston
Height: 6-6. Weight: 252.
Projected 40 Time: 4.60.
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.45.
Benchx225: 16. Vertical: 37.5. Arm: 34 1/8.
Projected Round (2010): 7-FA.

3/31/10: Fendi Onobun has no experience playing football; he caught two passes last year. He played on Arizona’s basketball team for four years. But his Pro Day numbers were off the charts. Some team may take a late-round flier on him simply based on his potential.
