    #13 (trade #12 pick and get #13 and #181 from Baltimore)

    Kamerion Wimbley DE/OLB FSU


    Position: DE
    Class: Sr
    School: Florida State
    Conference: Atlantic Coast
    Ht., Wt.: 6-4, 248
    40 Time: 4.66

    Grading System

    BIO: Moved into a starting role as a senior and proceeded to win All-Conference honors after totaling 26/11/7.5. Junior numbers included 27/5.5/2 as a back-up.

    POSITIVES: Explosive edge-rusher with possibilities as a linebacker in a 34 defense. Plays with great pad level, forceful up the field and splits double-team blocks. Immediately alters his angle and makes plays in every direction. Fast off the edge, plays with balance and stays within his angle of attack. Effective in pursuit and displays top first-step quickness.

    NEGATIVES: Engulfed by large opponents or slowed at the point. Struggled with injuries as a starter last year.

    ANALYSIS: Flashing big-time abilities the past two seasons, Wimbley comes off a tremendous Senior Bowl where he significantly improved his draft stock. Must add strength and stay injury-free, yet offers terrific upside for the next level.


    #34 (Trade picks #43 and Center Jeff Faine to Saints for Pick #34)

    D'Quell Jackson ILB Maryland


    Position: ILB
    Class: Sr
    School: Maryland
    Conference: Atlantic Coast
    Ht., Wt.: 6-0.5, 230
    40 Time: 4.79

    BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference and All-American honors as a senior after 137/6.5/4. Junior totals included 123/7/4 after 136 tackles as a sophomore.

    POSITIVES: Hard-working leader on the football field who likes to mix it up. Plays with a nasty streak and works to get involved. Quickly diagnoses the action, fluid moving to the sidelines and has a terrific head for the ball. Holds his ground against bigger opponents and wraps up tackling. Disciplined, gets depth on drops and is effective in zone coverage. Takes proper angles to the action and makes good decisions.

    NEGATIVES: Does not have a decisive move to the throw in coverage and struggles with his back to the action. May lack the pure size to hold up in the middle on the next level.

    ANALYSIS: Productive on the college level, Jackson consistently works hard to improve his game. Best suited as a one-gap linebacker in a system that allows him to freely roam to the action.



    WR Travis Wilson Oklahoma


    Position: WR
    Class: Sr
    School: Oklahoma
    Conference: Big Twelve
    Ht., Wt.: 6-2, 214
    40 Time: 4.54

    Grading System

    BIO: All-Conference selection the past two seasons. Slowed by a foot injury as a senior and totaled just 25/310/1. Posted career-best numbers of 50/660/11 as a junior.

    POSITIVES: Athletic receiver with natural pass-catching skills. Displays eye/hand coordination, and gets vertical to pluck the ball from the air. Takes a pounding, holds onto the ball and is effective running after the reception. Effectively body-catches when necessary, using his frame to shield away opponents. Remains alert, comes back to the quarterback and consistently works to make himself an available target.

    NEGATIVES: Marginal route-runner who does not consistently play with balance. Lacks top-end speed and is not a deep threat.

    ANALYSIS: After a disappointing campaign last year, Wilson returned and performed well at the Senior Bowl. May slip through the cracks but could be one of the draft.s better bargains late in Day One.



    ILB Leon Williams Miami

    Position: ILB
    Class: 5Sr
    School: Miami (FL)
    Conference: Big East
    Ht., Wt.: 6-3, 245
    40 Time: 4.65

    Grading System

    BIO: Part-time starter the past two seasons. Totaled 45 tackles as a senior after career-best numbers of 36/8/2.5 as a junior.

    POSITIVES: Outstanding athlete who never lived up to expectations. Moves well laterally, gets depth on drops and immediately alters his angle of attack. Easily runs with backs down field and displays speed in any direction. Takes on blocks and is forceful up the field.

    NEGATIVES: Hesitant, does not display awareness in coverage and cannot stack against the run. Inefficient and slows into tackles.

    ANALYSIS: Flashing ability, Williams has yet to translate his athletic skills into full-time football productivity. Offers potential at the next level if football becomes a priority.


    #112 (from Falcons)

    OG Isaac Sowells Indiana

    osition: T
    Class: 5Sr
    School: Indiana
    Conference: Big Ten
    Ht., Wt.: 6-3.5, 324
    40 Time: 5.22

    Grading System

    BIO: Three-year starter at left tackle who began his career at the guard position.

    POSITIVES: Tough blocker best in a small area. Sets with a wide base, effectively uses blocking angles and walls defenders from the action. Stays square, jolts opponents with good hand punch and keeps his feet moving throughout the action. Patient in pass protection, anchors at the point or gets movement from run blocks.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks adjustment, struggles on the second level and can be exploited by quick, nimble opponents. Not a natural knee-bender.

    ANALYSIS: A productive collegiate tackle, Sowells showed well in All-Star games during the postseason and projects as a solid middle-round choice.



    RB Jerome Harrison Washington State

    Position: RB
    Class: Sr
    School: Washington St
    Conference: Pacific-10
    Ht., Wt.: 5-9.5, 201

    Selected by: Cleveland Browns
    Round 5, pick 12 (145 overall)
    Grading System

    POSITIVES: Competitive ball carrier with outstanding running back skills. Displays terrific instincts, immediately finds the running lanes and has a burst through the hole. Runs with terrific balance, body control and follows blocks anywhere on the field. Fast, can run to daylight and consistently picks up positive yardage. Has a slashing style which allows him to create if plays break down. Solid pass catcher with soft hands.

    NEGATIVES: Not a strong ball carrier who breaks many tackles. Must improve as a blocker.

    ANALYSIS: Consistently improving on the field, Harrison capped off a terrific campaign in .05 with a great performance at the Senior Bowl. Has possibilities as a third-down back/situational ball carrier. Moved into the draft's first day.


    #152 (from Patriots)

    DB Demario Minter Georgia

    Position: CB
    Class: Sr
    School: Georgia

    BIO: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after 48/2/9 numbers. Junior totals included 51/0/10.

    POSITIVES: Explosive athlete displaying definite signs of progress the past two years. Fluid transitioning off the line, runs downfield with receivers and gets his head back around to make a play on the ball. Diagnoses the action, quickly breaks to the play and works hard in run support. Has a decisive move to the throw and plays with a good degree of explosion.

    NEGATIVES: Choppy pedaling in reverse and not efficient. Slow reacting in man coverage and better facing the action.

    ANALYSIS: A solid athlete who makes football a priority, Minter is slowly developing a solid game. Offers starting possibilities as a zone cornerback or possibly free safety.



    FB Lawrence Vickers Colorado

    Position: FB
    Class: Sr
    School: Colorado
    Conference: Big Twelve
    Ht., Wt.: 6-0.5, 245
    40 Time: 4.86
    Selected by: Cleveland Browns
    Round 6, pick 11 (180 overall)
    Grading System

    BIO: Second-team All-Conference selection who posted 73/258/9 on the ground, and 26/152/2 as a pass catcher. Junior rushing totals included 63/252/2 with receiving numbers of 28/290.

    POSITIVES: Aggressive triple-threat fullback offering a variety of skills. Quick off the snap, displays good vision and plays with solid pad level. Jolts opponents at the point and is aggressive in all aspects. Effective ball-handler who breaks tackles, picking up yardage off initial contact. Contorts to the errant throw as a pass-catcher, making the reception away from his frame.

    NEGATIVES: Has marginal blocking strength and struggles removing linebackers.

    ANALYSIS: A team player and leader on the field, Vickers is an offensive threat who would thrive in a West Coast system. Should also be a solid special-teams player at the next level.



    NT Babatunde Oshinowo Stanford

    Position: DT
    Class: 5Sr
    School: Stanford
    Conference: Pacific-10
    Ht., Wt.: 6-1.5, 304

    POSITIVES: Aggressive, compact lineman who can be used at defensive tackle or on the nose. Displays an excellent first step, gets penetration up the field and consistently doubled by opponents in the middle of the line. Fights to get off blocks, gives tremendous effort and has a burst of closing speed. Consistently plays with good pad level throughout the action.

    NEGATIVES: Slow shedding blocks at the point. Best in a straight line and lacks a quick change of direction.

    ANALYSIS: A lineman who occupies blockers and allows linebackers to make plays, Oshinowo has a classic nose tackle's build and projects well at the next level.
