Denard Robinson

Jacksonville Jaguars

Fifth Round: 135th Pick

Denard Robinson was the toast of the college football world in 2010, winning the Big Ten Player of the Year award. 2011 was good, but not great, and injuries in 2012 moved him from the quarterback position to a "weapon" role like the one he will be asked to play in the NFL. Will Robinson rediscover success in the NFL, or will be another one of the many star college quarterbacks who couldn't hack it when they weren't under center in the pros?

Terron Armstead

New Orleans Saints

Third Round: 75th Pick

Running a 4.71 at 6'5", 306 lbs. is one way to get the NFL's attention, but Terron Armstead shows a lot more than rare foot speed on film. This big offensive tackle from a small school hung well with his big school peers at the combine and Senior Bowl, and he has the rare athleticism and and proportions that the NFL looks for in a left tackle. How early will Armstead put Pine Bluff on the NFL map?

Pierre Garcon and Cecil Shorts have turned Division III powerhouse Mt. Union into "Wide Receiver U." as far as the NFL is concerned. This year's submission to the draft from the program is a speedy wide receiver whose game is bigger than his frame. Will he continue the new tradition of Purple Raider wideouts playing on Sundays?



Jasper Collins is a tough receiver with good hands. He can create separation with acceleration that eats up the cushion his speed buys him. Collins is comfortable going up for the ball or fighting for position when the ball is in the air. Collins is dangerous after the catch with an aggressive mindset, quick moves and strong running. He is also good at adjusting to the ball in flight and staying inbounds near the sidelines with body control. Collins can also serve as a punt returner, with the ability to score in the role.



Collins' frame is borderline too small to hang as an outside receiver in the NFL. He doesn't always separate and sometimes cornerbacks can easily stick to him. Collins will unnecessarily jump for receptions he could make in stride.



He was a combine snub despite an invite and solid week at the East West Shrine Game, so Collins' pro day was his chance to show off his 4.47 speed. His 34" vertical downplays his sudden ups to get high targets over the middle. Collins has good feet and quickness, as illustrated by his 4.07 short shuttle and 6.85 three-cone times.

AJ Klein

Carolina Panthers

Fifth Round: 148th Pick

AJ Klein's ability to lead and make big plays is unquestioned. He even tested out well at the combine and pro day, but his film tells the story of a player who might not have the athleticism to start in the NFL. Wisconsin overlooked this native son, and instead Klein went on to be a star for Iowa State. Will a pro team benefit from the tendency to underrate this playmaker?

Vince Williams

Pittsburgh Steelers

Sixth Round: 206th Pick

As soon as the NFL Scouting Combine invites are announced, debates begin over the biggest snub and which of them will be the first non-combine player drafted. Florida State linebacker Vince Williams was curiously good enough to get a spot at the Senior Bowl but not at the combine. Did the NFL make a mistake, or are the flaws in Williams' game big enough to justify his omission?

Brad Sorensen

San Diego Chargers

Seventh Round: 221st Pick


Aaron Mellette

Baltimore Ravens

Seventh Round: 238th Pick

Last year, a small-school wide receiver with a big frame surprised some as the first pick of the second day of the draft. This year's top small-school pass-catcher, Elon's Aaron Mellette, won't be taken as high as St. Louis Ram Brian Quick, but he has shown enough to get a draftable grade.

Kenny Stills

New Orleans Saints

Fifth Round: 144th Pick

Since he showed up on campus in Norman in 2010, Kenny Stills was a starter and an impact player in Oklahoma's high-powered passing offense. When Ryan Broyles left for the pros last year, Stills had a chance to be the No. 1 receiver, and coming off of an 11-touchdown season, he decided to leap to the pros as a junior.

Kerwynn Williams

Indianapolis Colts

Seventh Round: 230th Pick

Utah State isn't known as a running back factory or even a football factory, but after having two running backs drafted in 2012, they are set to have a third taken this year.

Corey Fuller

Detroit Lions

Sixth Round: 171st Pick

There are lots of reasons that players can be late bloomers, and for Corey Fuller, a track career and transfer from Kansas accounted for his lack of production until his senior season. He was able to make a big downfield impact in a so-so passing game, and he doesn't look like a track star who wandered onto the football field. See why Fuller could be taken earlier than anyone expects.
