1. CB Janoris Jenkins Gator/Lion
Jenkins will fall to the mid/late first round because of less than ideal size and some red character flags. However, his instincts are crazy off the charts, his recovery speed is crazy off the charts, and his ball skills are crazy off the charts. I believe with our locker room we can absorb some of his character problems and tap his limitless potential.
2. DE/OLB Vinny Curry Thundering Herd
Very productive three year starter for the Thundering Herd. In the last two years he averaged 11.5 sacks a season, including 5 forced fumbles last season. Has a big frame, but lacks the strength and bulk. Maybe a one trick pony.
3. QB Nick Foles Wildcat
It's not hard to fall in love with his size and big accurate arm. Problem is he lacks mobility and doesn't come from a traditional NFL offense. He'll take some time to develop as a player because of that, but he is big, smart, and if you protect him his arm will kill you. However, he has improved his footwork some this year, which has improved his pocket presence.
4. ILB Kennan Robinson Longhorn
Has good size and athleticism for an ILB, but there have been some concerns over his motor and instincts. However, he has amassed over 183 tackles over the past two years, so the productivity is there.
5. CB Jamell Fleming Sooner
He'll be a mid to late round pick as he is not the most athletic of the corners and has dealt with some academic issues. However, he is a natural cover corner and knows how to create turnovers.
6. NT Chigbo Anunoby Maroon Tiger
Opened eyes at the HBCU bowl. Big physical DT, who has a good first step and is hard to move. Pretty good ball awareness as well.
7. FB/TE Cory Harkey Bruin
TE in college although not much of a pass catcher. However, he is a devastating run blocker and very good pass blocker. He is such a good blocker that there is some talk of him adding 30 lbs to his frame and becoming a guard. Although, I think it is more reasonable to have him play FB and let him obliterate linebackers.
