Jatavis Brown, LB, Akron Zips
Listed at 5'11", 222 pounds, Brown's size will be his biggest obstacle to NFL success. But he's an instinctive, explosive playmaker who dominated the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, flying all over the field and making plays against both the run and pass. He should get a late-round look from a 4-3 team looking for a weak-side linebacker.
Cre'von LeBlanc, CB, Florida Atlantic Owls
The second Owl to find a spot on this list, LeBlanc's lack of ideal size—he measured 5'10", 192 pounds at the Shrine Game—will certainly scare off some teams. But he's extremely competitive, shows solid technique and footwork in man coverage and plays bigger than he's listed.
Paul McRoberts, WR, Southeast Missouri State Redhawks
He may have been a relative unknown just a few weeks ago, but a solid performance at the Senior Bowl put McRoberts squarely on the NFL prospect map. At just under 6'2" and over 200 pounds, he has an NFL frame and an intriguing skill set that would have been fun to watch in Indy.
Morgan Burns, CB/RS, Kansas State Wildcats
He's not likely to make it in the NFL as a corner, but Burns was one of the most productive return specialists in the country. His 40-yard dash would have been entertaining on its own, and the positional drills would have given him an opportunity to prove to NFL scouts he is fluid enough to take a chance on as a defender.
Henry Krieger Coble, TE, Iowa Hawkeyes
Dynamic downfield threats at tight end get most of the attention in today's NFL, but there's still a place in the league for quality blockers at the position. The former Hawkeye is as effective a blocker as you'll find in this year's tight end class, and he's a better receiver than he's given credit for.
