    Corey Robinson/T/South Carolina: We’ve mentioned Robinson several times throughout the season and the junior never fails to impress us. His most recent outing against Arkansas was noteworthy. Robinson did his part to blank the Razorbacks pass rushing duo of Chris Smith and Trey Flowers. Neither player recorded a sack, tackle for loss or quarterback hurry. Robinson, a former defensive lineman, has tremendous size and displays consistent improvement in all areas of the tackle position. If he enters the draft don’t be surprised if Robinson slides into the late part of round one.

    Luther Maddy/DT/Virginia Tech: Maddy is one half of the Hokie’s explosive interior defensive line along with Derrick Hopkins, a week three riser. Like his teammate Maddy is quick, athletic and possesses the ability to make plays in every direction of the field. During the win over Pittsburgh the junior collected 5 tackles, 1 tackle for loss as well as breaking up a pass during the game’s critical moment when the Panthers were trying to claw back. Grading as a top 100 pick, Maddy offers the movement skills to line-up as a three technique tackle and will also get consideration as a one-gap defensive end in a three man line.

    Michael Sam/DE-OLB/Missouri: Its tough to make the claim that a player who registered just one assisted tackle on Saturday is rising up draft boards. That’s exactly the case for Sam who made his presence felt all game long during Missouri’s upset victory over Georgia. He continually penetrated the line of scrimmage, breaking the rhythm of quarterback Aaron Murray and forcing the signal caller to throw before he was ready. He’s a speed rusher with awful measurables but a non-stop motor. In many ways he offers the style and substance of Elvis Dumervil and like the Pro-Bowl pass rusher, Sam has enough ability to succeed at the next level.

    Jarvis Landry/WR/LSU: Landry’s numbers against Florida, 4 receptions with 58-yards and no touchdowns, were not earth shattering.
