    C.J. Mosley - he has come out of seemingly no where to now being a top 3 - 5 prospect at the DT position.

    College: Missouri Height: 6-3
    Position: Defensive Tackle Weight: 305
    Class: Junior 40-Yard: 4.95

    Strengths: Has been very productive the last couple of years...Is a very good athlete...Has good speed and quickness...Can penetrated and is disruptive in the backfield...Powerful...Still improving.

    Weaknesses: Needs to work on his technique and not rely so much on his natural athleticism...Didn't face a lot of double-teams playing next to Atiyyah Ellison...Needs to do a better job versus the run.

    Notes: Helped lead the way for one the the nation's most improved defenses in 2004...Was recognized as the best player on a very good defense...Has the physical tools you look for and could move up since this is a weak class of defensive tackles.


    On the NFL Draft Countdown Board he has moved up to the #5 DT. His line mate:

    Atiyyah Ellison
    College: Missouri Height: 6-4
    Position: Defensive Tackle Weight: 300
    Class: Senior 40-Yard: 4.95

    Strengths: Has good size and the frame to get bigger...Very good athletic ability...Good speed and quickness...Productive...Can hold his ground and could project to either a one or two gapper at the next level...Still has some upside.

    Weaknesses: Plays too high at times and really needs to work on and refine his technique...Could stand to add some weight...Needs to continue to get stronger...Very limited in terms of his pass rush repertoire...A bit raw and not a finished product.

    Notes: Has excellent measurables and physical tools which makes him an interesting prospect...Still has a ways to go in terms of his development but has a lot of potential

    The last couple of drafts that had two good DT's on the same team sure look good right now.

    University of Texas, Shaun Rogers and Casey Hampton

    University of Georgia, Macrus Stroud and Richard Seymour...

    I don't think either guy is as good as these two tandems, but they may make good 3rd-4th round picks.

    Ellison moving up my chart - he's making $ at Senior Bowl. May be a 3rd rounder now.

    You love Spears, but Cody is about the same size and has already played both DT and DE. I think Cody is more atheletic than Spears.

    I probably like Cody better then Spears as well but I'd take either one.
