    #23

    Davin Joseph OG Oklahoma

    [IMG]

    Position: OG
    Class: Sr
    School: Oklahoma
    Conference: Big Twelve
    Ht., Wt.: 6-2.5, 311
    40 Time: 5.15


    BIO: Moved in with the first unit as a sophomore, then awarded All-Conference and All-Academic honors the past three years.

    POSITIVES: Self-motivated, small-area blocker who can be a devastating force. Moves defenders off the line or engulfs them at the point of attack. Outstanding position blocker, keeps his head on a swivel and displays great awareness. Strong in his upper body and jolt defenders with great hand punch.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks overall quickness, adjustment and blocking range. Not light on his feet. Minimally effective when used at left tackle as a senior.

    ANALYSIS: A hard-working blocker with both size and athleticism, Joseph projects well to the next level. Offers potential in several blocking schemes and should break into the starting lineup by the end of his rookie season.

    Jeremy Trueblood Ot Boston College

    [IMG]

    Position: T
    Class: 5Sr
    School: Boston College
    Conference: Big East
    Ht., Wt.: 6-8, 316
    40 Time: 5.34

    Grading System

    BIO: Three-year starter at left tackle.

    POSITIVES: King-sized tackle prospect who plays with a nasty attitude. Immediately gets his hands into defenders and easily controls them at the point of attack. Drives opponents off the line run-blocking, then engulfs them altogether. Makes outstanding use of angles and seals the edge.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks adjustment, blocking range and has difficulty getting to the spot laterally picking up blitzes. Not light on his feet and marginally effective on the move.

    ANALYSIS: Possessing both size, growth potential and strength, Trueblood has starting potential as a right tackle in the NFL.

    Maurice Stovall WR Notre Dame

    [IMG]

    Position: WR
    Class: Jr
    School: Notre Dame
    Conference: Independents
    Ht., Wt.: 6-4.5, 217
    40 Time: 4.58

    Grading System

    BIO: Three-year starter coming off a career season. Posted 60/1,023/11 as a senior after 21/313/1 the prior year.

    POSITIVES: King-sized wideout with a developing game. Beats jams at the line of scrimmage, shields opponents away with his frame and out-positions defenders to make the reception. Sells routes, adjusts to the errant throw and makes the reception in stride. Consistently extends to make the reception away from his frame. Offers the quarterback a huge target in the middle of the field. Gives effort blocking downfield and seals lanes open for ball carriers. Plays with good balance and body control.

    NEGATIVES: Does not always display a great sense of timing or anticipation. Lacks the speed to get separation downfield.

    ANALYSIS: A large receiver who plays to his size, Stovall improved as the season progressed last year. Moving up draft boards, he is a first-day pick with potential as a second wideout in a conventional system or a No. 1 in a West Coast offense.

    Position: CB
    Class: Sr

    40 Time: 4.51

    Grading System

    POSITIVES: Coachable, shutdown cornerback with plenty of upside for the next level. Physical throughout routes, displays good footwork in all directions and quickly reads the action. Quickly breaks to the pass and gets vertical to make the interception. Displays terrific hands for the pick, consistently stays with assignments and positions himself to make a play on the ball.

    NEGATIVES: Rarely used in zone and presents himself as a cornerback best facing the action.

    ANALYSIS: An instinctive ballplayer with solid physical skills, Zemaitis is a high-character prospect with great work habits. Offers starting potential in the NFL and will see plenty of playing time as a rookie.

    Julian Jenkins DE Stanford

    Position: DE
    Class: 4Sr
    School: Stanford
    Conference: Pacific-10
    Ht., Wt.: 6-3.5, 277
    40 Time: 5.08

    POSITIVES: Hard-working player with ability in several defensive schemes. Athletic lineman who displays speed off the edge, can flatten and quickly change direction. Plays with good pad level, rarely off his feet and chases to get involved in the action.

    NEGATIVES: Marginal skills in pursuit and displays only a short area burst of speed. Struggles getting off blocks and can be handled by opponents.

    ANALYSIS: Considered a great worker who makes football a priority, Jenkins is a developmental prospect with possibilities as a left defensive end or two-gap lineman.

    QB Bruce Gradkowski Toledo

    Position: QB
    Class: Sr
    School: Toledo
    Conference: Mid-American
    Ht., Wt.: 6-1.5, 217
    40 Time: 4.62
    Selected by: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Round 6, pick 25 (194 overall)
    Grading System

    BIO: Three-year starter named Conference MVP as a senior after passing totals of 62.3%/2,469/29/12. Posted a career-best 3,518 passing yards as a junior and 29 throwing touchdowns during his sophomore campaign.

    POSITIVES: Hard-working, intelligent signal-caller who is best in the short field. Sets up with solid footwork, goes through receiver progressions and locates the open wideout. Makes good decisions in the pocket, rarely forces throws and takes the safe underneath outlet if nothing else is available. Buys time for receivers, senses pressure and is accurate between the numbers.

    NEGATIVES: Cannot zip the outs and lacks top pass placement. Under-throws deep targets.

    ANALYSIS: A productive, hard-working signal-caller, Gradkowski possesses the intangibles NFL scouts want in a passer, but the inability to throw the long ball hampers his potential at the next level.

    NEGATIVES: Likes to pin his ears back and take off up the field. Does not always use his size as an advantage. Needs to be prodded at times.

    ANALYSIS: An exceptional athlete with a great amount of upside potential, Williams has the skills to be labeled an impact defensive player. Moving around the field like a linebacker, he has the ability to force the action on a three-down basis. Needs to complete

    Position: TE
    Class: Sr
    School: Michigan

    POSITIVES: Solid athlete who flashes big-time ability. Runs well laterally and reaches back to grab the errant throw from the air. Settles into the open space on the field or makes the difficult reception in a crowd. Plays with good pad level, turns defenders off the ball and displays ability blocking in motion.

    NEGATIVES: Does not block with great balance or body control. Must become more cognizant of where he is on the field. Does not finish blocks.

    ANALYSIS: A good worker who does the extras, Massaquoi offers a large amount of potential for the next level. Never took his game to another level, yet a solid late-round selection who can be developed for the future.

    Probably a stretch here but that's a good pick for TB. He can fill the need at OG. He'll probably play for a while there.
