Jason Allen S Tennesee
Ht., Wt.: 6-1, 209
40 Time: 4.43
BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a junior. Played in five games last year totaling 35 tackles. Injured his hip the second weekend of October and sat on the sideline the rest of the season. Junior totals were 123/2/7, and he led the conference in tackles.
POSITIVES: Versatile defensive back who can be used at safety or cornerback. Displays outstanding footwork in all directions, is fluid transitioning to run with opponents and quickly breaks to the action. Instinctive, quickly locates the pass and positions himself to defend the throw. Physical and works hard for 60 minutes.
NEGATIVES: Lacks top-end speed and the ability to mirror defenders down the field. Does a bit of grab tackling.
ANALYSIS: Productive the past three seasons, Allen has a polished game and offers starting possibilities at several positions. A first-round prospect until his injury last year, Allen is a quality prospect who will be a steal in round two.
WR Derek Hagan Arizona State
School: Arizona State
Ht., Wt.: 6-1.5, 208
40 Time: 4.47
BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a freshman and earned All-Conference honors the following three seasons. Totaled 77/1,210/8 as a senior after career-best numbers the prior year with 83/1,248/10. Career receptions leader in the Pac-10 with 258.
POSITIVES: Reliable pass-catcher who is best as a possession wideout. Sells routes, fast into breaks and stays low on exit. Goes up in a crowd, displays solid eye/hand coordination and comes down with the difficult reception. Comes back to the ball working to make himself an available target and uses his frame to shield away defenders. Runs well laterally making the reception in stride and easily adjusts to the errant throw.
NEGATIVES: Rather lazily comes off the line of scrimmage at times. Does not show a deep burst and does too much unnecessary body-catching. Must improve his blocking.
ANALYSIS: Coming off an uninspired .05 campaign, Hagan still presents himself as a solid No. 2 wideout for the next level. Will produce for an NFL team if he consistently plays to his capabilities.
Joe Toledo OT Washington
Ht., Wt.: 6-5.5, 337
40 Time: 5.17
BIO: Former tight end who moved to offensive tackle as a senior. Registered 19 receptions as a junior.
POSITIVES: Athletic blocker with terrific size and upside potential. Plays with good pad level, sets with a wide base and is explosive at the point. Anchors in pass protection or walls defenders from the play with body positioning. Makes solid use of angles and plays heads-up football.
NEGATIVES: Lacks playing balance and blocking range, and is not effective on the second level.
ANALYSIS: After doing a fine job in his first year as a full-time blocker, Toledo has starting possibilities in the NFL as a right tackle. Needs time to develop but is worth the investment.
#212 (from Packers)
DT Fred Evans Texas State
School: Texas State
Ht., Wt.: 6-3.5, 290
40 Time: 5.3
Selected by: Miami Dolphins
Round 7, pick 4 (212 overall)
BIO: All-Conference and All-America selection, posting 55/18/5 last year and 40/17.5/6.5 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Hard-working, developing prospect with a decent upside. Quick off the snap, plays with good pad level and clogs the middle. Holds the point against blocks, keeps his feet driving up the field and possesses a burst of closing speed bearing down on the play.
NEGATIVES: Best in a straight line and significantly slows down changing direction. Must improve his hand technique and protect himself. Not instinctive and slow locating the ball.
ANALYSIS: A player who.s shown significant progress the past two seasons, Evans needs more bulk on his frame to complete the deal. Solid practice squad material.
DT Rodrique Wright Texas
Conference: Big Twelve
Ht., Wt.: 6-5, 300
40 Time: 5.14
Selected by: Miami Dolphins
Round 7, pick 18 (226 overall)
BIO: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign and All-American honors the past two years. Senior totals included 46/13/4.5 after 36/3/1 as a junior. Career-best numbers of 80/12/7.5 came as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Athletic defensive tackle who makes plays in all directions of the field. Quick off the snap and tough to move off the point. Wedges between double-team blocks, slides off opponents laterally and redirects to the action. Flashes power, pushing opponents off the ball.
NEGATIVES: Does not play with a sense of urgency and seemingly gives up on plays after being initially blocked. Must improve his hand technique.
ANALYSIS: Flashing dominance in spurts, Wright has watched his play level off the past two seasons. Offers a great amount of upside yet needs to be consistently prodded.
#233 (from Bears)
WR Devin Aromashodu Auburn
Ht., Wt.: 6-2.5, 201
40 Time: 4.38
Selected by: Miami Dolphins
Round 7, pick 25 (233 overall)
BIO: Two-year starter who totaled 26/494/4 as a senior after junior numbers of 24/513/4.
POSITIVES: Explosive receiver with an unpolished game. Quickly releases off the line, sharp running routes and gets separation from opponents. Comes back to the ball using his frame to protect the pass and adjusts to the errant throw. Possesses a burst of speed, playing faster than his 40 time and beating opponents in a foot race.
NEGATIVES: Constantly lets the pass get inside him and body catches. Lacks a sense of timing and anticipation. Rarely catches the ball cleanly and drops too many passes.
ANALYSIS: A solid athlete who can stretch the field, Aromashodu projects as a third receiver for a vertical offense. Needs to fine-tune his game and work harder to reach the level of expectation NFL scouts have for him.
