    Rd 1 - 032 - Anthony Gonzalez WR, Ohio State


    BIOGRAPHY: All-Conference selection last season, his first as a full-time starter. Finished with 51/734/8 after 28 catches as a sophomore.

    POSITIVES: Smart, athletic receiver with a polished game. Plays with outstanding balance, body control and makes the reception without breaking stride. Extends to grab the ball away from his frame, takes a big hit, yet holds onto the pass.

    NEGATIVES: Does not show the speed to be a true deep threat. Possesses just average size.

    ANALYSIS: Productive college receiver who consistently elevated his game, Gonzalez nicely projects as a second or third wideout at the next level.

    Colts trade 4th round pick (#126) and First round pick in 2008 to get 49ers second round pick (#42)

    Tony Ugoh OT, Arkansas

    BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior. Champion shot-putter who has won the SEC indoor title.

    POSITIVES: Athletic pass blocker who made major improvements as a senior. Blocks with leverage and displays outstanding range sliding laterally. Makes good use of angles, keeps his feet moving throughout the action and anchors at the point.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks dominant strength, gets minimal movement from run blocks and is not a finisher. Considered a track guy who was coaxed to play football.

    ANALYSIS: A tremendous pass-blocker whose game is on an upswing, Ugoh displays the ability to handle the blindside tackling duties. Needs to improve the strength of his base and must overcome the perception that he's not committed to football.

    Rd 3 - 095 - Daymeion Hughes CD, California

    BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past three seasons after seeing spot duty with the first team as a freshman. All-Conference selection as a junior and named Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year last season. Senior totals were 72/8/11 after 62/5/12 as a junior.

    POSITIVES: Ball-hawking cornerback with outstanding instincts. Quickly diagnoses the action, displays outstanding anticipation and consistently keeps the action in front of him. Possesses top ball skills, shows a quick break to the throw and has great hands.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks top playing speed, is slow transitioning off the line and struggles in man coverage.

    ANALYSIS: A productive college cornerback who consistently comes up with the big play, Hughes is a terrific player. His lack of speed limits the type of systems he can be used in, but he has potential as an immediate starter in a zone-type scheme.

    Rd 3 - 098 - Quinn Pitock DT, Ohio State

    BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter and All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 39/12/8. Junior totals included 28 tackles after a career-high 49 during his sophomore campaign.

    POSITIVES: Intense, high-motor defender who makes the most of his abilities. Plays with leverage, gets underneath opponents and wedges between blockers. Explodes off the snap, makes plays down the line of scrimmage and rarely off his feet.

    NEGATIVES: Engulfed by opponents or handled at the point. Marginal playing speed.

    ANALYSIS: An overachiever who consistently gives great effort, Pitcock.s level of play has improved. Could be used as a conventional tackle and also offers possibilities as a two-gap lineman.
