After watching the Senior Bowl and doing some research, it is time to update my Mock Draft.
I started thinking about some of the players that are moving up and some that are moving down in the upcoming draft.
I will complete another Mock Draft after the NFL Combine. Let's get started.................................
Campbell certainly has the frame and athleticism to be something special at 6'7" and 310 pounds.
What really held him back this year were multiple injuries, including turf toe and an issue with his medial collateral ligament. He will move into the LT and M. Henderson can move over to RT. Big upgrade!!!
Penn State senior Jared Odrick's defensive dominance was recognized by the Big Ten coaches.
Odrick, (6'4", 305) the Nittany Lions' defensive tackle, was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and the Defensive Lineman of the Year by the conference coaches.
I think this young man may drop into the second round and if he does, he would be a fantastic addition to the defense.
Washington was an All-American in 2009 as the Horned Frogs (12-1) won the Mountain West Conference championship and made their first BCS appearance.
Washington led TCU with 109 tackles, the most stops by a Horned Frog since 2004 (Martin Patterson, 131).
Washington was a Dick Butkus Award semifinalist. His 11 tackles for loss, including 3.5 in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, placed second on TCU behind only Hughes.
With the chance of the team losing one or both of its starting LBs, Mr. Washington will fit right in.
Ghee has the size/speed combination that you love to see in a cornerback.
At 6’0, 190 he has the size to match up with bigger receivers and also the speed to run with smaller ones. He plays with a bit of an attitude and helped lead the Wake Forest defense.
Overall, Ghee is a solid two-way corner who may establish himself as one of the top players in this class at the position. He will give us depth this year and challenge for the starting position very quickly.
Jerry, 6’5", 350, played in all 37 games over the past three seasons, starting 34.
He earned First Team Freshman All-America accolades in 2006, All-SEC honors in 2008 and preseason All-America distinction this summer from numerous media outlets, including the Playboy All-America team.
Last year, Jerry helped the Rebels rank second in the SEC in rushing and fourth in sacks allowed.
Move this guy in at RG from day one. The team will see a 1,000 yard rusher and better pass protection with Campbell and Jerry added to the line.
This guy can flat out FLY!!!!!!!! The return game, both kick and punt returns were way below average last year.
Mr. Ford will be a GREAT returner and comes with an added bonus, he is a football player that just happened to excel at track, not the other way around. I think he will fall into the fifth round and right into our hands.
As a senior, Riley finished second on the team with 97 total tackles, including 4.5 for loss. Riley has good size at 6'1 and 245 pounds.
Riley also has good speed and has been clocked as fast as 4.53 in the 40-yard dash. He is a very good pick as will challenge for playing time very quickly.
Conner, 5'11", 240, is a solid all-around player. Started at Fullback but also plays extensively on special teams. Named the "best blocking back" in the SEC in the Birmingham News 2009 preseason edition.
His teammates call him "The Terminator". "John Conner is one of the best fullbacks in the nation," tailback Alfonso Smith says. "I feel very comfortable running behind him, like I'm not going to be touched."
He is a capable running threat and a reliable pass catcher. He will challenge for the starting FB position.
There were several changes made to this mock. Please let me know your thoughts. Until the next mock, GO RAIDERS!!!!!
