    #6
    Vernon Davis TE Maryland

    [IMG]

    Position: TE
    Class: Jr
    School: Maryland
    Conference: Atlantic Coast
    Ht., Wt.: 6-3.5, 254
    40 Time: 4.4

    Grading System

    BIO: All-Conference and All-American selection as a junior after totaling 51/871/6. Sophomore totals were 27/441/3, when he started six games. Ran 4.41 at the combine, totaling 33 repetitions on the bench press.

    POSITIVES: Explosive athlete swiftly developing into an outstanding football player. Quick off the snap, gets downfield and creates mismatches in the secondary. Plays with good pad level, adjusts to the throw and makes the difficult reception in a crowd. Has soft hands and is a sturdy pass-catcher who takes the big hit then holds onto the ball. Immediately transitions up the field running after the reception. Solid route-runner who quickly gets into breaks then stays low on exit. Shields opponents away with his frame or physically beats them down to make the catch. Strong, controls opponents at the point blocking or beats jam off the line of scrimmage.

    NEGATIVES: Still raw and indecisive on the field. Not a dominant drive blocker who finishes.

    ANALYSIS: An exceptional athlete, Davis offers tremendous upside potential. Continuing to make strides in all areas of his game, he is a top-12 pick who will grow into a complete tight end at the next level.

    #22 (from Broncos)

    Manny Lawson DE NC State

    [IMG]

    Position: DE
    Class: Sr
    School: NC State
    Conference: Atlantic Coast
    Ht., Wt.: 6-5.5, 241
    40 Time: 4.48


    BIO: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors after his senior and junior campaigns. Numbers last season were 53/18.5/9.5 and 50/12/7 the prior year.

    POSITIVES: Tremendous athlete watching his draft stock soar. Plays with good pad level, is rarely off his feet and makes plays in every direction of the field. Fast off the edge, terrific in pursuit and runs ball carriers down from the backside. Effectively used in space on zone blitzes. Reads the action and stays with assignments. Hard-hitting and plays with an aggressive style.

    NEGATIVES: Undersized out of a three-point stance and can be engulfed by large blockers. Occasionally takes wide angles to avoid linemen altogether.

    ANALYSIS: After a terrific campaign in .05, Lawson performed well at the Senior Bowl and combine. Has the skills to stand up over tackle in a 34 defense. Moving toward the first round.

    WR Brandon Williams Wisconsin

    [IMG]

    Position: WR
    Class: Sr
    School: Wisconsin
    Conference: Big Ten
    Ht., Wt.: 5-9.5, 179
    40 Time: 4.52

    Grading System

    BIO: Four-year starter and All-Conference performer the past two seasons. Led the team in receiving as a senior posting 59/1,095/6, also averaged 14.6 yards on 26 punt returns with two more scores. Junior receiving totals were 47/580/2.

    POSITIVES: Under-sized yet consistent receiver with abilities as a return specialist. Quick off the line, sharp running routes and gets separation from opponents. Comes back to the ball, finds the soft spot in the defense and effectively uses the sidelines. Natural pass-catcher and easily adjusts to the errant throw. Not afraid to go up in a crowd for the difficult catch. Gives effort blocking downfield.

    NEGATIVES: Marginal top-end speed. Will have difficulty handling the jam at the next level. Unnecessarily lets the ball get inside him at times.

    ANALYSIS: Reliable throughout his Wisconsin career, Williams is a solid middle-round pick with potential as No. 3 receiver and return specialist at the next level.

    QB/RB/WR Michael Robinson Penn State

    Position: WR
    Class: Sr
    School: Penn State
    Conference: Big Ten
    Ht., Wt.: 6-1.5, 227
    40 Time: 4.62

    Grading System

    BIO: Full-time starter the past two seasons at quarterback and receiver. Shared Big 10 Offensive Player of the Year honors last season after passing numbers of 52.1%/2,350/17 and rushing totals of 163/806/11. Led the team in receiving as a junior with 33/485/3.

    POSITIVES: Hard-working, athletic prospect who projects to a number of positions at the next level. Has a major-league arm at quarterback, throwing darts or driving passes downfield. Stands in the pocket, finds the open receiver and takes a hit in order to get the ball away. Solid ball carrier who sees the field, follows blocks and runs with an aggressive style. Improvises outside the pocket when plays break down. Displayed adequate hands and route-running skills in the past.

    NEGATIVES: Average accuracy and pass placement at quarterback. Not averse to throwing into coverage.

    ANALYSIS: A big, strong player who does whatever necessary to help the team, Robinson's NFL position has yet to be defined. Could be used at receiver, running back or even safety. Needs time and patience, yet will reward a team willing to develop his skills.

    #140

    DE Parys Haralson Tenn

    Position: DE
    Class: Sr
    School: Tennessee
    Conference: Southeastern
    Ht., Wt.: 6-1.5, 253
    40 Time: 4.85
    Selected by: San Francisco 49ers
    Round 5, pick 7 (140 overall)
    Grading System

    BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors after his junior and senior campaigns. Totals last season included 39/7.5/2.5 when he intercepted two passes and broke up three more. Posted 43/7/13.5 as a junior.

    POSITIVES: Explosive pass rusher coming off a tremendous senior campaign. Displays outstanding first-step quickness, immediately alters his angle of attack and consistently makes plays down the line of scrimmage. Rarely off his feet, plays with good pad level and is explosive in all his actions. Fierce moving up the field and outstanding in pursuit. Effective dropped off the line in space.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks the size to line up in a three-point stance on an every-down basis. Marginal speed to be considered at linebacker.

    ANALYSIS: A self-motivated defender who is constantly flying around the action, Haralson was unstoppable last year and elevated his draft stock. A classic .tweener who can stand up over tackle in a 34 alignment or be used as a pass rush specialist.

    Class: 4Sr

    POSITIVES: King-sized receiver consistently progressing on the field. Plays to his 40-time, possesses solid hands and good eye/hand coordination. Adjusts to make the difficult reception and plays with excellent body control. Comes across the middle to make the difficult catch in traffic. Physically beats down opponents and comes away with the ball.

    NEGATIVES: Choppy route-runner who slows into breaks. Struggles catching the deep pass. Lacks soft hands.

    ANALYSIS: A physical specimen who outclassed lesser competition, Walker comes off an impressive combine. Needs a lot of detail work yet has potential as a third or fourth receiver in the NFL.

    CB Marcus Hudson NC State

    Position: CB
    Class: Sr
    School: NC State
    Conference: Atlantic Coast
    Ht., Wt.: 6-1, 195
    40 Time: 4.55
    Selected by: San Francisco 49ers
    Round 6, pick 23 (192 overall)
    Grading System

    BIO: All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 47/2/10. Junior totals were 70/2/6, when he started six games at safety.

    POSITIVES: Physical defensive back with good size. Explosive up the field in run defense, possesses a quick burst of speed and takes good angles to the action. Flashes cover skills, has a nice break to the pass and keeps the action in front of him. Really stands out on coverage units.

    NEGATIVES: Slow transitioning off the line, loses a half-step to opponents and is late arriving on the scene. Struggles with his back to the ball.

    ANALYSIS: Raw in his coverage techniques and prone to making mental mistakes, Hudson may be best suited as a zone safety. Should flourish on special teams, an area where he stood out in college.

    DE Melvin Oliver LSU

    Position: DT
    Class: Sr
    School: Louisiana State
    Conference: Southeastern
    Ht., Wt.: 6-2.5, 276
    40 Time: 5.1

    Grading System

    BIO: Two-year starter used at both tackle and end. Senior totals included career-best numbers of 69/11/9 after 36/5/1 as a junior.

    POSITIVES: Productive defensive lineman coming off a breakout senior campaign. Plays low with leverage, quickly gets off the snap and is rarely off his feet. Collapses laterally defending the run and is relentless in pursuit of the ball handler. Displays speed off the edge and immediately locates the ball.

    NEGATIVES: Works hard in the weight room yet does not translate that strength onto the field. Not fluid moving about the field and does not cover a large area.

    ANALYSIS: Cranking up his play last season, Oliver offers potential as a two-gap end in a 34 defense or could back up as a five-technique lineman.
