1. Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State, 6-7, 323, 5.10 40 time; projected late first-round, early second-round pick. Adams came to Mobile viewed as a likely third-round prospect, but after a strong week, we are confident that he will be a second-round pick and could even work his way into the bottom of the first round. He displayed good feet sliding out to protect the corner in pass protection and did an excellent job of using his long arms to get a fit on pass rushers. He showed good strength throughout the week and once he locked onto a man, he was able to tie him up and keep him out of the play. Numerous NFL scouts told SN that Adams is a better offensive tackle prospect than Riley Reiff.
2. Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia, 5-9, 183, 4.35; projected late first-round, early second-round pick. It is widely accepted that Morris Claiborne and Dre Kirkpatrick will be the first two cornerbacks drafted, but the battle to be the third cornerback picked is up for grabs. After an excellent week in Mobile, Boykin has definitely let it be known that he needs to be in that discussion. He showed natural instincts covering receivers, rare foot quickness, loose hips and the speed to run with receivers all over the field. Best of all was that Boykin seemed to enjoy being physical with the big receivers and not only held his own, but was able to consistently keep his man from catching passes.
