    HE REMINDS ME OF...





    TERRENCE CODY/NT/ALABAMA/6’4/350 TED WASHINGTON/MISC TEAMS


    Though very limited in his athleticism because of his bulk, his size and natural strength are rare. They are also an absolute necessity for a 3-4 scheme. Amazingly, as pointed out by TONY SPARANO in Mobile, some of these massive guys last a long time in the NFL. WASHINGTON used his bulk to carve out a 15 year NFL career. If CODY can get in some semblance of “massive shape” for the next 5-6 years he too could put together a 10-plus year career, absolutely controlling the line of scrimmage ala BIG TED. RANK 37/ROUND 2





    SERGIO KINDLE/OLB/TEXAS/6’4/250 BRIAN ORAKPO/REDSKINS


    KINDLE played the pass-rush DE position for the Longhorns this season as a favor to the TEXAS coaching staff. Do not be fooled... he is a stand-up OLB who should be comfortable in either a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme. There is no reason to believe he will not be just as successful as a Rookie in the NFL as ORAKPO was in his first year in Washington. Just like ORAKPO, KINDLE should be a double defensive threat in his ability to stop the run and provide some pass-rush on a regular basis. He possesses a nice combination of strength and speed off the edge. RANK 11/ROUND 1





    DAN LeFEVOUR/QB/CENTRAL MICHIGAN/6’3/230 TONY ROMO/COWBOYS


    One of the key things to remember in this comparison is that even though LeFEVOUR played in D1 his readiness to play the pro game will require a couple of years of learning on an NFL bench. His size, arm strength and athleticism are very comparable to ROMO’s. But his mechanics coming out of college ball, just like ROMO’s, will need fine tuning by an NFL QB guru. Despite often being a scapegoat for failures in Dallas ROMO is clearly in the top dozen QBs in the NFL right now. In time I think LeFEVOUR has the talent and athleticism to follow in ROMO’s footsteps. RANK 62/ROUND 3





    ANTHONY McCOY/TE/USC/6’4/260 HEATH MILER/STEELERS


    McCOY is not a big offensive weapon, but he will catch more than his share of short and intermediate balls in a West Coast style system. But some folks forget that his initial signature skill was his blocking ability. That’s why I see him having an NFL career similar to that of HEATH MILLER. He will block solidly for the running game, help in picking up outside blitzes and catch enough balls to help keep an NFL Offense advancing the chains. I see him having a more productive pro career than he had as a collegian. RANK 56/ROUND 3





    KOA MISI/OLB/UTAH/6’3/250 ANTHONY SPENCER/COWBOYS


    Thanks to his week in Mobile we all have a pretty good sense of what MISI can do with his hand off the ground after his college career as a DE. And the picture we got was very attractive for at team looking for a strong, pass rushing edge player, who can actually drop into space n pass coverage. He is ahead of SPENCER already in that area, but otherwise they are very similar in size and athleticism. The footwork and awareness he displayed out in space, while in Mobile, make me think he could possibly handle either a 4-3, or 3-4 scheme, more likely the latter. MISI is not going to crack Round 1 like SPENCER did, but I will be surprised if he is not gone by late in Round 2. RANK 55/ROUND 2





    NDAMUKONG SUH/DT/NEBRASKA/6’4/305 DAN HAMPTON/BEARS


    I had to go back a couple decades to find a guy I felt had the kind of package SUH brings to the table. And HAMPTON represented the combination of size, strength and quickness that SUH brings to the field of play. HAMPTON even swung outside to End in certain situations. And there is no reason to think that MR. SUH couldn’t do so as well. A major reason for my selection of HAMPTON is that I seem to recall he was extra special at using his hands to keep blockers at bay, and literally throw people around, which is fairly rare at the NFL level. Based on his play in college it certainly appears as though SUH will bring that skill to the League. RANK 1/ROUND 1





    Please remember the RANK #’s that you see on each player are based on my prospect Regardless of Position list.

    I think Cody is surprisingly nimble...just needs a nice bra and he'll be fine.

    I'd gamble a 3rd or 4rth on Cody with a lose weight clause in his contract...

    Romo has a better arm that LeFevour. I do like his moxy though.

    Romo's a top dozen QB?

    Way to go out on a limb. You can't name 11 other QB's better than him.

    I'll just break out a couple running back comparisons:

    Ryan Mathews - smaller Fred Taylor
    Montario Hardesty - Clinton Portis
    Dexter McCluster - Darren Sproles
    Toby Gerhart - Mike Alstott

    Perhaps a Jonny Knox?
