My 2nd mock.
1.27: (trade with New Orleans, Dallas gets NO 2008 3rd rd pick) Dwayne Jarrett WR, Southern Cal – 6-4 219
Huge playmaker who is sliding because of a sluggish 40-time. Has excellent awareness and good leaping ability to compliment his 6-4 body. Gets lots of comparisons to Keyshawn Johnson. Big-time performer in college, gaining the school record for receptions (216) and with 41 career TD’s he destroyed the Pac-10 all time record of 32.
2.53: Anthony Spencer DE/OLB, Purdue – 6-3 261
This guy will remind Wade of Shaun Phillips. Good quickness. Proved to be coachable, improving in his senior season in all areas of his game. Can play OLB in the 3-4, and be an effective DE in the nickel.
3.87 Eric Weddle S, Utah – 5-11 203
This guy is my favorite draft prospect. Awesome athlete who played S, CB, QB, RB, punt returner, holder for kicks, and punter, depending on the situation (usually lined up at CB). Smart player with freaky athletic skills. Quick & tough. He limited Calvin Johnson to 2 catches for 19 yards in Bowl game. His senior season, he was 4th on his team in tackles, had 7 INT’s, 2 FR, 3 Defensive TD’s, and on offense he ran for 5 TD’s & passed for 1 TD.
4.118 Ryan Harris OT, Notre Dame - 6-5 300
Not real big for today's OT, but according to Weis he is ready to play OT in the NFL. Great athlete, who can stop speed guys off the edge.
5.149 Corey Anderson FB, Tennessee - 6-3 259
Somebody has to be the Lorenzo Neal of this Offense. Big time lead blocker
6.180 Courtney Brown CB, Cal Poly - 6-2 200
Speed. Speed. Speed. This guy can fly, but wasn't invited to the combine because he was considered slow. Ran a 4.35 and a 4.32 at his Pro Day, and has a 41.5" vertical. If he is still on the board here it's a no-brainer... but his stock is rising.
6.185 Walter Thomas DT, NW Mississippi CC - 6-5 373
Galveston native who shined in the Texas vs Nation all star classic. He ran 1.70 in the first 10 yards of his 40. In comparison, USC wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett's 10-yard splits was 1.65 and Thomas weighs over 150 pounds more than Jarrett. Very coachable. Not much fat in his 373 pounds. Small school sleeper.
7.193 Jordan Palmer QB, UTEP - 6-6 231
C'mon... Jerruh just has a lust for prototypical QB bodies... Plus, he has the lineage (Carson Palmer's little brother). He has the body, but maybe not the brain.
7.215 Kasey Studdard G/C, Texas - 6-2 307
Texas boy. Strong blocker, but not much agility. Guard in college who may be able to play Center.
7.218 Keith Jackson DT, Arkansas - 6-0 305
Jerry: "Hmmmm... 218th pick... any Hogs still on the board?"
Son of Pro Bowler Keith Jackson.
"The ball ain't heavy."
-Herschel Walker, when asked if he got tired carrying the ball 30 times per game.
