    D'Brickashaw Ferguson OT Virginia


    BIO: Four-year starter who missed two games in his college career. All-Conference and All-America choice over the past two years.

    POSITIVES: Athletic, pass-blocking tackle with tremendous upside potential. Displays outstanding footwork, blocking range and ability protecting the edge. Fluid pulling across the line of scrimmage and effective blocking on the move. Quick with his hands, stays square and jolts opponents at the point of attack. Patient and plays with intelligence.

    NEGATIVES: Must improve his playing balance, strength and run-blocking abilities. Not a true finisher. Mild-mannered and not a high-intensity prospect.

    ANALYSIS: An exciting prospect with All-Pro possibilities at the next level, Ferguson offers immediate starting potential and will only get better as he physically matures. Well-spoken and respected, his future is bright in the NFL.


    #29 (from Falcons Via Broncos)

    Nick Mangold Center Ohio State


    Position: C
    Class: 4Sr
    School: Ohio State
    Conference: Big Ten
    Ht., Wt.: 6-3.5, 300
    40 Time: 5.06

    BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as both a senior and junior.

    POSITIVES: Vocal leader of the offensive line, and is shooting up draft boards. Explodes off the line, immediately gets his hands into opponents, then controls them at the point of attack. Plays with good pad level, keeps his feet moving throughout the action and effectively uses body positioning to seal defenders from the play. Nasty yet at the same time a disciplined blocker. Adequate in motion, can adjust on the move and has possibilities in a zone blocking scheme. Improved his playing strength as a senior.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks top footwork in space. Over-extends or lunges into blocks. Not a true finisher.

    ANALYSIS: After an outstanding campaign in .05, Mangold capped his college career with a tremendous performance at the Senior Bowl. A passionate football player who gets the job done, Mangold should quickly move into a starting lineup.


    #49 (trades pick #53, #189 and #211 to Cowboys for #49)

    QB Kellen Clemens QB Oregon


    Position: QB
    Class: Sr
    School: Oregon
    Conference: Pacific-10
    Ht., Wt.: 6-1.5, 224
    40 Time: 4.94

    Grading System

    BIO: Three-year starter who totaled 64%/2,406/19/4 in eight games last season before fracturing his ankle. Junior numbers included 59.9%/2,548/22/10.

    POSITIVES: High-percentage thrower who is best in the short passing game. Sells ball fakes, patient in the pocket and displays an excellent sense of timing. Consistently looks downfield, knows where his receivers are on the field and hits targets as they leave breaks. Finds the safety, displays excellent pocket awareness and very accurate in the short field. Does not wilt under pressure or make poor decisions. Throws with a fluid, over-the-top delivery.

    NEGATIVES: Cannot drive passes down the field nor zip intermediate throws. Stares down primary targets. Cannot elude the rush.

    ANALYSIS: Benefiting from a system implemented by coordinator Gary Crowton last season, Clemens took his game to another level before the injury. A solid choice in the middle rounds for a West Coast offensive squad.


    #53 (Jets trade pick #35 to Skins for picks #53, #189 and Second Round pick in 2007)

    Jets trade #71 to Eagles for Picks #76 and#220


    LB Anthony Schlegel Ohio State


    Position: ILB
    Class: Sr
    School: Ohio State
    Conference: Big Ten
    Ht., Wt.: 6-0.5, 250
    40 Time: 4.88

    BIO: Two-year starter who began his college career at Air Force. Senior totals included 82/7/2 after career-best totals of 84/10.5/3.5 as a junior.

    POSITIVES: Hard-working two-down defender who is best against the run. Aggressive, effectively diagnoses the action and takes good angles to the play. Breaks down and defeats blocks on his way to the play. Gets depth in zone coverage and immediately picks up assignments.

    NEGATIVES: Struggles moving laterally, lacks sideline-to-sideline range and speed in pursuit. Slow reacting when the ball.s in the air and is better playing downhill.

    ANALYSIS: A competitive linebacker, Schlegel best fits on the inside of a 34 defense where his area responsibilities will be limited.


    #97 (Compensatory pick)

    Eric Smith DB Michigan State

    Position: S
    Class: Sr
    School: Michigan State
    Conference: Big Ten
    Ht., Wt.: 6-1, 209
    40 Time: 4.68

    Grading System

    BIO: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior, leading the team with 101 tackles. Posted career-best numbers of 115 tackles and nine pass defenses as a junior.

    POSITIVES: Aggressive safety best in run support. Displays an excellent head for the ball and goes hard until the whistle blows. Disciplined, stays with assignments and keeps the action in front of him. Flashes on the scene, lays his shoulders into ball carriers and goes for the knockout blow.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks sideline-to-sideline range and is usually a half-step late getting to the spot. Does more trailing than covering in pass defense. Durability is a concern.

    ANALYSIS: A physical defensive back with good instincts, Smith has been productive on the college level. A traditional strong safety who must stay healthy to have any chance of making it at the next level.



    QB/WR Brad Smith Missouri

    Position: QB
    Class: Sr
    School: Missouri
    Conference: Big Twelve
    Ht., Wt.: 6-2, 213
    40 Time: 4.54

    Grading System

    BIO: Four-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors since his freshman campaign. Senior passing totals included 59.4%/2,304/13/9. Also led the team in rushing last season with 229/1,301/16. Posted career-best passing totals of 2,333 yards and 15 touchdowns as a freshman.

    POSITIVES: Outstanding athlete who is best running the football. Big-armed, threads the needle or drives passes downfield. Eludes the rush and loses nothing throwing on the move. Patient and buys as much time as possible for receivers. Displays vision running the ball, waits for blocks to develop, then explodes through the hole. Will pick and choose his spots, finds the running lanes and displays skill in the open field.

    NEGATIVES: Indecisive passer who consistently has receivers waiting on throws. Puts the ball up for grabs. Stares down targets from the get-go.

    ANALYSIS: Possessing top size/speed numbers as well as ball-carrying instincts, Smith is a developmental prospect at running back and possibly a return specialist.



    RB Leon Washington FSU

    Position: RB
    Class: Sr
    School: Florida State
    Conference: Atlantic Coast
    Ht., Wt.: 5-8, 201
    40 Time: 4.5

    Grading System

    BIO: Starter the past two seasons who has played extensively since his freshman campaign. Senior rushing totals included 97/430/3 with 25/267/1 as a receiver. Career-best rushing numbers of 138/951/7 came as a junior. Used as a return specialist the past four seasons.

    POSITIVES: Elusive ball carrier with terrific first-step quickness. Runs low to the ground, gets lost behind blockers and explodes through the small creases on the field. Sets up defenders, makes them miss or bounces around piles to pick up positive yardage. Aggressive, does not go down without a fight and breaks arm tackles.

    NEGATIVES: More quick than fast and cannot run to daylight. Marginal strength and intensity as a blocker.

    ANALYSIS: A shifty runner with a slashing style, Washington is known as a selfless team leader with a passion for the game. Though disappointing as a senior, he nicely projects as a third-down back/situational runner at the next level.


    Trades pick #138 to Dallas for Picks #150 and #189


    TE Jason Pociask Wisconsin

    Position: TE
    Class: Sr
    School: Wisconsin
    Conference: Big Ten
    Ht., Wt.: 6-3, 266
    40 Time: 4.89
    Selected by: New York Jets
    Round 5, pick 17 (150 overall)
    Grading System

    BIO: Part-time starter used mainly in two-tight end sets. Senior receiving numbers were 7/79, after four receptions as a junior.

    POSITIVES: Nice-sized tight end with solid timed speed. Quick off the line, plays with good lean and displays natural receiving skills. Adjusts to the errant throw and makes the reception away from his frame. Blocks with leverage, attacks assignments and is explosive at the point.

    NEGATIVES: Does not finish blocks. Marginal playing speed.

    ANALYSIS: A hard worker who gives top effort, Pociask could make a roster for a team that keeps three tight ends, if he learns to play to his size/speed numbers.



    CB Drew Coleman TCU



    DE Titus Adams Nebraska

    Position: DT
    Class: Sr
    School: Nebraska
    Conference: Big Twelve
    Ht., Wt.: 6-3.5, 306
    40 Time: 5.15
    Selected by: New York Jets
    Round 7, pick 12 (220 overall)
    Grading System

    BIO: Three-year starter who posted 50/5/1.5 as a senior, after junior numbers of 37/8. All-Academic recipient in the past.

    POSITIVES: Well-built tackle best stuffing the run. Plays with terrific pad level, keeps his feet driving up the field and has a short burst of speed. Cognizant and quickly locates the ball. Effectively works his hands and redirects to ball carriers.

    NEGATIVES: Easily blocked by lesser opponents. Wears down over the course of a game. Marginal pass-rushing skills.

    ANALYSIS: Chasing hard to get involved in the action, Adams has flashed skill the past two years. Needs to improve his playing strength, stamina and the details of his position yet has the skills to find a place in the NFL.

    Jets pick up Mangold now too. They are going to have a pretty good OL but not a whole lot else on offense.

    Exellent picks. Build a top offense starting with the Offensive line. Brick is Da Brick, Mangold is a beast.
