    [IMG] Selections [IMG]


    Brodrick Bunkley DT FSU


    Position: DT
    Class: Sr
    School: Florida State
    Conference: Atlantic Coast
    Ht., Wt.: 6-2.5, 306
    40 Time: 5

    Grading System

    BIO: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after 66/25/9. Junior totals included 12/3/1 when he played with a high ankle sprain.

    POSITIVES: Explosive interior lineman who can be used at defensive tackle or on the nose. Displays tremendous first-step quickness, plays with leverage and has a nasty attitude. Tough to handle and was consistently doubled by opponents. Keeps his feet driving up the field, has a burst of speed and is quick closing on the play. Makes plays down the line of scrimmage and is fluid if asked to twist or stunt.

    NEGATIVES: Must use his hands better and develop more moves. Has a history of knee injuries.

    ANALYSIS: Ever-improving the past two seasons, Bunkley is a terrific one-gap lineman who can be used in different schemes. Elevated his draft stock significantly at the Senior Bowl and is now a first-round pick.

    #39 (trades picks #45 and #116 for Titans pick #39)

    Winston Justice OT USC


    Position: T
    Class: 4Jr
    School: USC
    Conference: Pacific-10
    Ht., Wt.: 6-6, 319
    40 Time: 5.15
    Selected by: Philadelphia Eagles
    Round 2, pick 7 (39 overall)
    Grading System

    BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a true freshman, then awarded All-Conference honors as a sophomore and junior. Suspended in .04 season after a student conduct violation.

    POSITIVES: Athletic, versatile blocker who can be used at left or right tackle. Strong at the point, seals defenders from the action and pounds them into the turf when the opportunity arises. Fights with his hands, can adjust and easily anchors at the point. Controls opponents or turns them off the line once engaged in a block.

    NEGATIVES: Not explosive off the snap into run blocks. Has had several off-the-field incidents.

    ANALYSIS: Combining size, strength and athleticism, Justice offers terrific upside potential for the next level. If he keeps his focus on the football field, he should only get better as he physically matures through the years.

    #71 (Eagles trade Picks #76 and #220 to Jets for pick #71)

    Chris Gocong DE Cal-Poly SLO

    Position: DE
    Class: 5Sr
    School: Cal Poly-SLO
    Conference: IAA Independents
    Ht., Wt.: 6-2, 263
    40 Time: 4.79
    Selected by: Philadelphia Eagles
    Round 3, pick 7 (71 overall)
    Grading System

    BIO: Three-year starter awarded the Buck Buchanan Trophy last year, given to the nation's top Division I-AA defender. Finished his senior campaign with 98/31/23.5 after totals of 71/21.5/17.5 as a junior.

    POSITIVES: Tenacious, instinctive ballplayer consistently making plays behind the line of scrimmage. Displays tremendous speed, quickness and force off the edge. Plays with excellent pad level and fast in any direction of the field. Immediately changes direction and makes tackles in pursuit.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks size and bulk, and can be handled at the point by a single blocker. Takes a lot of wide angles around linemen.

    ANALYSIS: A team player who leads by example, Gocong has potential as a situational pass rusher or linebacker in the 34 defense at the next level. Tenacity and passion for the game should make him a special-teams demon.

    #99 (trade saints picks # and # for pick #99)

    OL Max Jean-Gilles Georgia


    Position: OG
    Class: 4Sr
    School: Georgia

    Grading System

    BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore and awarded All-Conference honors every season since. Played both left tackle and guard.

    POSITIVES: Big, powerful blocker who dominates the opposition. Quickly gets into blocks, explosive at the point and controls defenders or buries them into the ground. Keeps his feet moving throughout the action and jolts defenders with terrific hand punch. Anchors and rarely gives up an inch of room. Plays heads-up football, working well with teammates.

    NEGATIVES: Gets lazy and sloppy at times. Struggles redirecting or adjusting.

    ANALYSIS: A dominant blocker with the versatility to be used at several spots, Jean-Gilles has immediate starting potential at the next level. Could reach All-Pro status if he consistently plays to his capabilities.


    WR Jason Avant Michigan

    POSITIVES: Big, soft-handed wideout with possibilities as a possession receiver. Displays good ball awareness and is a consistent hand-catcher who extends to grab the ball away from his frame. Consistently comes back to the ball and shields opponents away with his frame. Displays outstanding adjustment and body control grabbing the errant throw. Has both soft and strong hands. Effectively uses the sidelines and displays a sense of timing. Aggressive, works to pick up yardage after the catch and attacks blocking assignments.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks deep speed, cannot run to the long throw nor beat defenders down the field. Lacks quickness and sharpness running routes.

    ANALYSIS: Consistent the past three seasons, Avant is a clutch receiver with a passion for the game. Known as a player with a good work ethic, he is a good football player with potential as a second receiver in the NFL.


    WR Jeremy Bloom Colorado

    School: Colorado
    Conference: Big Twelve
    Ht., Wt.: 5-9, 173

    POSITIVES: Gifted athlete with game-changing skills as return specialist. Explosive, tough to tackle and has both size and strength. Works hard and has a terrific build.

    NEGATIVES: Has not played football for two seasons. Lacks the height to be anything other than a fifth receiver.

    ANALYSIS: A solid athlete, Bloom's recent headlines are a result of what he's done off the field more than anything else. A late round choice brought into an organization as return specialist.

    #168 (Compensatory pick)

    LB Omar Gaither Tennesee

    Position: OLB
    Class: Sr

    NEGATIVES: Not strong and slow shedding blocks. Does not possess a sustained burst of speed.

    This looks like a stellar draft thus far the Iggles . Hope I'm wrong. I thought we'd seize Justice with #18. Here's to him being the next Antone Davis.

    Philly has closed the gap with us, or at least come even. This is a great draft. They just got Gocong in the 3rd. They are kicking out butts in the draft son far.

    At least your team isn't drafting career back-ups like the Giants. Personality and grades mean more than talent.
