    A.J. Hawk LB Ohio State


    Position: OLB
    Class: Sr
    School: Ohio State
    Conference: Big Ten
    Ht., Wt.: 6-1, 248
    40 Time: 4.67

    Grading System

    BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors every season since his sophomore campaign. Led Ohio State in tackles the past three years posting 121/16.5/9.5 as a senior. Also awarded All-American honors last year. Junior totals included 141/8/1.

    POSITIVES: Intense, aggressive linebacker who strives to be the best. Plays with outstanding explosion, and displays tremendous sideline-to-sideline range. Fast in pursuit, flashes on the scene and flies around the ball. Immediately alters his angle of attack or redirects to the action and effectively uses hand technique to protect himself. Gets depth on drops, displaying a good backpedal in coverage. Intelligent and quickly locates the ball.

    NEGATIVES: Does not always play under great control. Must improve his tackling technique as he tends to go high on ball carriers.

    ANALYSIS: A productive defender on the field, Hawk is the consummate three-down defender who will quickly find a starting job in the NFL.

    Conference: Western Athletic
    Ht., Wt.: 6-4.5, 299
    40 Time: 5.04
    Selected by: Green Bay Packers
    Round 2, pick 15 (47 overall)
    Grading System

    BIO: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Previously timed at 4.93 in the 40-yard dash.

    POSITIVES: Hard-working offensive tackle who was very productive on the college level. Nasty and works to finish off opponents, yet a lineman who plays with great intelligence. Patient, keeps his feet moving throughout the play and slides off the edge in pass protection. Makes outstanding use of blocking angles and body positioning. Explosive into block, stays square and anchors at the point.

    NEGATIVES: Not a dominant run-blocker who gets much movement off the line. Marginal skills in motion. Does not possess the height teams want in a blind-side tackle.

    ANALYSIS: A coachable prospect and favorite of the Boise State staff, Colledge is a polished lineman with a good game. Can quickly start in the right system at either tackle or guard.



    Greg Jennings WR Western Michigan


    Position: WR
    Class: Sr
    School: W Michigan
    Conference: Mid-American
    Ht., Wt.: 5-11, 197
    40 Time: 4.48

    Grading System

    BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors every season since his sophomore campaign and led the team in receiving each year. Senior totals were 98/1,259/14 after 74/1,092/11 as a junior. Handled both punt and kick returns at WMU.

    POSITIVES: Sure-handed, quick receiver with outstanding work ethic. Fast off the line, sharp running routes and gets separation from opponents. Consistently makes himself an available target and extends to grab the ball away from his frame. Quickly transitions up the field after the catch and is elusive handling the ball. Comes across the middle of the field making the reception in stride. Displays soft hands and uses his frame to shield away opponents.

    NEGATIVES: Needs to improve his blocking. Not a true downfield threat. Has a thin build and does not present himself as a sturdy receiver.

    ANALYSIS: Ultra-productive the past three seasons, Jennings is a solid wideout who.s continually improved his game. Offers potential as a No. 3 receiver at the next level.



    Abdul Hodge LB Iowa


    Position: ILB
    Class: Sr
    School: Iowa
    Conference: Big Ten
    Ht., Wt.: 6-0.5, 236
    40 Time: 4.82

    Grading System

    BIO: Three-year starter and All-Conference selection every season since his sophomore campaign. Led the Hawkeyes in tackles as a senior totaling 158/11/1. Junior numbers included 116/5/3.

    POSITIVES: Instinctive, hard working linebacker who makes plays in every direction of the field. Tough in run defense and goes for the knockout blow. Diagnoses the action, stays with assignments and quickly locates the ball. Covers a good amount of area and gets depth on drops. Plays with balance, body control and is rarely off his feet.

    NEGATIVES: Occasionally takes false steps on his way to the action. Under-sized and gets caught up in the trash.

    ANALYSIS: A well-rounded linebacker with a complete game, Hodge is a three-down defender at the next level. Plays bigger than his listed size and has the ability to develop into a starting linebacker in the proper scheme.

    BIO: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign.

    POSITIVES: Explosive lineman with starting potential in the NFL. Blocks with solid fundamentals, explosive at the point and moves opponents off the line. Always looking for someone to hit. Effective blocking in motion and stays after assignments.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks flexibility and displays only average footwork in space.

    ANALYSIS: A tenacious yet intelligent blocker, Spitz offers good size as well as growth potential. Could be used in a variety of blocking schemes and offers starting potential.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks the speed to separate from defenders down field. Lacks playing strength and loses out in battles. Benefited from a system which lined up five receivers.

    ANALYSIS: Productive the past three seasons, Rodgers is a college favorite with marginal size/speed numbers. Best as a slot receiver and must produce returning punts and kicks.

    POSITIVES: Nice-sized passer with an NFL arm. Patient, buys time for receivers and makes good decisions in the pocket.

    Selected by: Green Bay Packers
    Round 6, pick 14 (183 overall)
    Grading System

    BIO: Three-year starter who posted 64/11.5/5 as a senior. Career-best totals of 94/12/2 came during his sophomore campaign.

    POSITIVES: Strong two-gap lineman who stacks well against the run. Quick off the snap, forceful up the field and wedges between blocks. Plays with good lean, rarely off his feet and fluid moving laterally. Penetrates up the field and flashes ability in space.

    NEGATIVES: Marginal pass-rusher who must develop more moves with his hands. Has a short-area burst of speed which he cannot sustain.
