    Rd 1 - 027 - Robert Meachem WR, Tennessee

    BIOGRAPHY: All-Conference selection last season after producing a career-best 71/1,298/11. Started two games as a sophomore and totaled 29/383/2.

    POSITIVES: Physically gifted prospect with terrific size/speed numbers. Plays with good balance and body control, and makes the difficult reception in contorted positions. Displays a burst of speed, tracks the deep throw and effortlessly makes the reception in stride.

    NEGATIVES: Inconsistent route-runner who slows into breaks. Not quick releasing off the line. Struggles in battles when he should not.

    ANALYSIS: Meachem offers a lot of potential, yet still needs work to complete his game. Has the skills to develop into a No. 1 wideout.


    Rd 2 - 058 -

    New Orleans trade 2nd round pick (#58) to Detroit Lions for 3rd round (#66) and 5th round (#145) picks.

    Rd 3 - 066 - Usama Young CB, Kent State

    BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter, awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after totaling 60/2/6.

    POSITIVES: A nice-sized cornerback with solid ball skills. Displays solid footwork in reverse, loses nothing transitioning to run with opponents and covers a good amount of area on the field. Quickly reads receivers. eyes, then gets his head back around to locate the ball.

    NEGATIVES: Not strong and struggles bringing ball handlers down on initial contact. Very quick out of his backpedal and prefers to side-shuffle. Better facing the quarterback and struggles with his back to the ball.

    ANALYSIS: A consistent player in college, Young will get late-round consideration as a nickel or dime back who plays backed off the line of scrimmage.


    Rd 3 - 088 - Andy Alleman G, Akron

    BIOGRAPHY: Former Pittsburgh transfer who began his college career at defensive end. Two-year starter at offensive guard.

    POSITIVES: Strong, dominant interior blocker with a good amount of upside. Quick off the snap, immediately gets into blocks and holds the point of attack. Stays square, blocks with a wide base and bends his knees. Jolts opponents with good hand punch.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks lateral blocking range. Must improve his balance and learn to consistently finish blocks.

    ANALYSIS: Continually improving his game, Alleman has made terrific strides the past two years. Has the ability to add bulk and strength to his frame, and could develop into a starter at the next level.

    Meachem, Young, Alleman, Pittman

    all players I wanted Dallas to draft, and Bushrod could be an upgrade over Stinchcomb in time
