50. (No. 7 QB) Derek Carr, Fresno State (6'3", 212 lbs)
The brother of former No. 1 overall pick David Carr, the Fresno State passer has the tools to move his way into the first round with another strong year.
49. (No. 9 DE) Dominique Easley, Florida (6'2", 280 lbs)
A versatile defender who can play defensive end or defensive tackle, Easley has to find his position. Ideally he gains 15 to 20 pounds and plays inside as a 3-technique pass-rusher.
48. (No. 8 DE) Scott Crichton, Oregon State (6'3", 263 lbs)
A nonstop player on the edge of the Oregon State defense, Crichton can generate tackles for loss and sacks coming off the line of scrimmage. He could be a nice candidate to stand up in a 3-4 scheme.
47. (No. 3 ILB) Shayne Skov, Stanford (6'3", 242 lbs)
One of the better inside linebackers in 2012, Shayne Skov has room to move up draft boards with his size and run-stuffing ability between the tackles. His instincts and awareness are upper-level.
46. (No. 8 CB) Jason Verrett, TCU (5'10", 182 lbs)
You may not know Jason Verrett—an underdog at the cornerback position—but you will soon enough. He's silky-smooth in coverage and has the skills to break on the ball and make plays.
45. (No. 2 FS) Ty Zimmerman, Kansas State (6'1", 203 lbs)
The man making all those tackles behind Arthur Brown? That was Ty Zimmerman. The Kansas State free safety has the range, explosion and tackling ability to be a high-level prospect in one year's time.
44. (No. 6 QB) Aaron Murray, Georgia (6'1", 212 lbs)
A winner at the position coming out of Georgia, but Murray lacks the size and arm strength to make plays down the field. If he can improve his downfield accuracy and vision, he could move up the board, but I see another Matt Barkley in Aaron Murray.
43. (No. 7 CB) Deion Belue, Alabama (5'11", 180 lbs)
Alabama has made a tradition out of putting defensive backs into the NFL recently, and cornerback Deion Belue is next. He doesn't have Dee Milliner's size, but he's arguably better in man coverage right away.
42. (No. 1 SS) Brian Blechen, Utah (6'2", 218 lbs)
Watching Star Lotulelei on film, it was easy to see Brian Blechen showing up and playing lights out in the defensive backfield. He has the size to be a hitter and the speed to show off nice range when running to the corners of the field.
41. (No. 6 OT) Zack Martin, Notre Dame (6'4", 305 lbs)
A right tackle at the next level, or potentially even a guard, Zack Martin will have a great 2013 season, but his short arms could keep him from ever being considered a true left-tackle prospect.
40. (No. 1 FS) C.J. Barnett, Ohio State (6'0", 202 lbs)
The Ohio State defense should be amazing in 2013, and free safety C.J. Barnett will have a lot to do with that. His range, size and instincts remind me of 2013 draftee Kenny Vaccaro.
39. (No. 6 CB) Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State (5'11", 188 lbs)
A physical cover man with good skills at the line of scrimmage, Dennard has the size and toughness to step into the NFL as a day-one starter in a man-heavy scheme.
38. (No. 5 CB) Quandre Diggs, Texas (5'10", 200 lbs)
The brother of NFL cornerback Quentin Jammer, Quandre Diggs has the size and quickness that NFL teams want. He doesn't have great height, but he's a dog in man coverage and very fluid underneath.
37. (No. 7 DE) Kony Ealy, Missouri (6'5", 260 lbs)
A player one scout told me was the "next Aldon Smith," Kony Ealy has game-changing potential and athletic ability, but to date he hasn't put that product on the field. If he does, Ealy could easily be a top-15 player.
36. (No. 5 OT) Ja'Wuan James, Tennessee (6'6", 324 lbs)
Lost in a year with some very talented offensive linemen available is Tennessee's Ja'Wuan James. He has the strength to be a dominant force in the run game and the length and quickness to excel in passing situations.
35. (No. 4 CB) Bennett Jackson, Notre Dame (6'0", 185 lbs)
With good length and nice hips in coverage, Bennett Jackson has the talent to shoot up the board with better consistency. We'll see how he looks without Manti Te'o and Zeke Motta helping him out in coverage.
34. (No. 5 QB) Logan Thomas, Virginia Tech (6'6", 258 lbs)
A top-10 player last season, Thomas went through a horrible run of games and saw his stock decline dramatically. He needs a huge rebound to hold his spot at No. 34 overall.
33. (No. 7 OLB) Trent Murphy, Stanford (6'4", 261 lbs)
A talented three-down outside linebacker in the 3-4 defense, Murphy has the tools to be an impact player off the edge. A lack of elite pass-rushing skills will keep him out of the first round.
32. (No. 2 ILB) Andrew Jackson, Western Kentucky (6'1", 262 lbs)
Try scouting Quanterus Smith in 2013 without falling in love with Jackson in the middle of the defense. He's as tough as his namesake in the middle of the defense and draws comparisons to Brandon Spikes.
31. (No. 1 TE) Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington (6'6", 267 lbs)
A DUI arrest has Seferian-Jenkins' stock in jeopardy, but when he's on the field, there is no comparison to his size, speed and open-field ability.
30. (No. 6 DE) Kareem Martin, North Carolina (6'5", 260 lbs)
A true 4-3 defensive end, Kareem Martin continues the North Carolina trend of placing defensive linemen high in preseason watch lists. He'll have to produce without Sylvester Williams next to him, which could cause his stock to fall off.
29. (No. 5 DE) Morgan Breslin, USC (6'2", 250 lbs)
A high-level pass-rusher, Breslin needs to prove that his 2012 wasn't a fluke before he's ready to be moved up draft boards. The talent is here, though.
28. (No. 3 CB) Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State (6'0", 195 lbs)
A long, smooth cover man, Gilbert was on my list of potential 2013 draft underclassmen. He has the tools to be a day-one starter in the NFL.
27. (No. 1 RB) Ka'Deem Carey, Arizona (5'10", 197 lbs)
An explosive back in 2012, Carey has the speed to be a threat outside the tackles and the all-around ability that fits the mold of a Jamaal Charles or C.J. Spiller type of back.
26. (No. 4 DE) Will Sutton, Arizona State (6'0", 268 lbs)
A versatile defensive lineman, Sutton spent most of the 2012 season playing inside at tackle. He's a production machine, but limited height could be an issue for NFL teams.
