#2: Lockette Looks The Part, But Can He Play The Part?
- Deunta Williams, S, North Carolina – If not for injuries he would have been at least a Day 2 selection.
- Ricardo Lockette, WR, Fort Valley State – Track star with top-end speed and #1 receiver-like build. Project well worth the wait. Dez Bryant-esque athleticism and size. Once it comes time, I would pounce on the chance to sign him if I was an NFL GM. Chomping at the bit.
- Kendric Burney, CB, North Carolina – NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock compared him to Chiefs CB Brandon Flowers. One of the most impressive players during Senior Bowl practices. Burney was Day 2 pick following sensational Junior campaign. Was suspended for part of 2010. Possesses elite ballhawking skills, jumping ability. Can make in-air adjustments. Bad 40-yard dash (plays faster) hurt his stock.
- Terrence Toliver, WR, LSU – Tall possession receiver who will make a contribution somewhere. Just a matter of time.
- Noel Devine, RB, West Virginia – Super-quick and elusive scat back who can also return kicks exceptionally well. Better as a Junior. Next Darren Sproles? Devine’s Scouting Report
- Weslye Saunders, TE, South Carolina – If he would have played as Senior there’s a chance he would have been gone by Day 2.
- DeAndre McDaniel, S, Clemson – Eight picks as a Junior. Knack for the football should make him a starter at some point in his career. McDaniel’s Scouting Report
- Mark Herzlich, LB, Boston College – Heart, determination, and will to succeed. Top-10 pick before unfortunate events.
- Dane Sanzenbacher, WR, Ohio State – Wes Welker clone. Tough as nails over the middle of the field. Excellent hands. Very quick.
- Jerrod Johnson, QB, Texas A&M – Darkhorse Heisman Trophy candidate in 2010. All the potential in the world. Sky’s the limit.
Just Missed The Cut: Will Hill, S, Florida – Should have stayed for Senior year. Would have been a top-rated safety. Starting-caliber if given opportunity.
