    Big names there are Kenrick Ellis and Dontay Moch, I'm not sure how late they'll go. Bruce Miller is a heck of a player who plays like his hair's on fire, was highly productive at UCF. Korey Lindsey is probably the most heralded "sleeper"(although I wouldnt' call him that anymore) in this draft class, great ballhawking ability. Don't know much abouth the Kent St guy, will have to look into it.

    On offense Rackley will most likely be a 2nd rounder and Fusco has been talked about in draft circles for a long time now, intriguing player(6th Round). Newton's(6th) another project OT who is a good fluid athlete but needs a lot of technique work before he can even be considered for playing time, he moves very well for a big guy and has LT potential if groomed properly. Never heard of the WR or TE.

    When I see a list like that, that tells me that the scouting department has REALLY been working hard to find some REAL football players that bust their buts on the field ALL THE TIME, not just big names that may produce at the next level.

    BRUUUUUUCCCCEEEEE!!!!!!! I am admittedly biased being a UCF alumn, but that guy will play hard every down and he plays with attitude. Watch the attached clip where he actually goes after the QB on his way to the endzone. 2 x C-USA Defensive player of the year.

    I like these lists as it seems like they always pick some guy that most have not heard of from some small school that has a bunch of potential. Now it does not always pan out, but it does on occasion.

    Either way it seems to happen quite a bit and many of these mocks do not have one of those players in it unless it is that one WR.

    Overview
    Moch holds virtually all of Nevada's pass-rushing records, and was the WAC Defensive Player of the Year in 2009. As an NFL prospect, Moch projects as an outside linebacker, where his speed and quickness off the snap can best be exploited as a pass rusher in the 3-4 scheme, and his ability to run fits well in the 4-3. However, we have seen dominant college pass rushers with stiff hips have trouble at the next level before (see: Gholston, Vernon, former Jets first-round pick). Moch may struggle in the same way.

    Analysis
    Positives: Three-year starter at end is a record-setting pass rusher with superior speed who projects well to the outside linebacker position in the NFL. Played some outside linebacker as a freshman, and often was given assignments dropping off from end. Quick off the snap. Good at shedding blocks with his hands, and has a strong bull rush. Can flat out fly. Big hitter, fearless. Can be effective dropping off into zone coverage against the pass. Productive, durable, intense defensive leader.

    Negatives: Former track star. Stiff in the hips and simply cannot change directions well. Pass rush either works on initial quickness and speed or it fails. Lacks a double move. Not stout against the run as a down lineman. Will have great difficulty with NFL man coverage assignments as a linebacker. Did very little in one-on-one attempts against Boston College's Anthony Castonzo in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.

    check out what they say about Solder OT, Smith OT and Will Rackley at the very end; one of my sleepers

    Will Rackley, DS #6 OG, Lehigh

    Name: Will Rackley
    College: Lehigh Number: 74
    Height: 6-4 Weight: 307
    Position: OG Pos2: OT
    Class/Draft Year: Sr/2011
    40 Time: 5.27 40 Low: 5.14 40 High: 5.38
    Projected Round: 3 Stock:
    Rated number 6 out of 202 OG's 100 / 2706 TOTAL

    http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=89220&draftyear=2011&genpos=OG
    Draft Scout Snapshot: DS Rating on 9-1-10: #9 OG, #149/750 Overall, 5-6
    2010: The three-time first team All-Patriot League selection, has solidified himself as one of the most dominant offensive tackles in Patriot League history, anchoring a Lehigh offensive line that only allowed 14 sacks in 2010. Rackley started all 13 games at left tackle for the 10-3 Mountain Hawks and has been a stable force for a Lehigh offense that was ranked second in passing and scoring in the Patriot League. In his senior campaign, he led the Mountain Hawk to their ninth Patriot League Championship. Rackley ended his Lehigh career with 40 consecutive starts on the offensive line. Prior to the College Sporting News All-American Team, Rackley was named a first team All-American by the Associated Press and Phil Steele. He also received third team recognition from the Sports Network. Rackley became the first Lehigh player to get named a first team All-American by the Associated Press since 2004...2009: Associated Press All-America selection … First Team All-Patriot League selection … started all 11 games on the offensive line … paved the way for a Lehigh offense that averaged 320 total yards … member of the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll...2008: First-Team All-Patriot League … started all 11 games … earned team award for top offensive lineman...2007: Made an immediate impact starting nearly every game on the offensive line … became the first freshman in head coach Andy Coen’s 20-year coaching career to start on the OL … helped lead Lehigh offensive line to top of Patriot League for number of fewest sacks allowed.

    The run-up to the East West Shrine game included a pair of reports by Lehighsports.com, one prior to the game, and one after the game, which did a good job in putting his performance there in perspective.


    The Riverdale, Georgia native solidified himself as one of the most dominant offensive linemen in Patriot League history, anchoring the offensive line for the Patriot League Champion Mountain Hawks. Rackley started all 13 games at left tackle for Lehigh in 2010 and ended his Mountain Hawk career with 40 consecutive starts on the offensive line. Rackley led an offensive line that allowed just 14 sacks in 2010, while the Mountain Hawks ranked second in the Patriot League in passing offense and scoring offense. He also paved the way for RB Jay Campbell and RB Zach Barket, who combined to rush for over 800 yards and seven touchdowns while averaging over four yards per carry.
