    With the combine less then a week from completion and the pro-day schedule in full swing, its time to take a quick look back as some remaining notes from Indianapolis and the word filtering in as teams move back to their home base.

    - The word surrounding the Boise State prospects continues to be positive. There’s a good chance both Shea McLellin and Doug Martin end up as top 45 picks. Martin in the top 45 is no surprise though McLellin would be. Tyrone Crawford is also moving up draft boards and he could be off the board before the second day of the draft closes out.

    - The same cannot be said for players coming out of North Carolina. We posted weeks ago that coaches from the school have not been giving Quinton Coples ringing endorsement. We are hearing the same about linebacker Zach Brown and right now most scouts would be surprised if the talented defender makes it into the first round. Lastly, we hear combine interviews from receiver Dwight Jones did not go over well with scouts.

    Could be possible that McClellin is our pick in the 2nd round if there is no trade.

    If they don't pick Ingram, Perry, Upshaw, Mercilus in Round 1, then pass rusher could be the pick at #45. McClellin is the only 3-4 OLB prospect in that range.

    #45 is to high for guys like Irvin, Curry, Ronnell Lewis

    In the second round I see these guys as possible picks.

    C- Peter Konz - could slip due to injury concerns
    OG- Kelechi Osemele
    OG- Amini Silatolu- rising up draft boards
    OLB- Shea McClellin
    CB- Brandon Boykin
    CB- Trumaine Johnson
    S- Harrison Smith

    I would prefer to grab DeCastro in round 1, then pick up Boykin in round 2

    Coples would be hard to pass up at 14 if they dont get Mario Williams.

    I was hoping toget McLellin in the 3rd but now this. Frustrating:bang2:

    McClellin might be the most well rounded 3-4 OLB prospect in the draft. He is good in coverage, can set the edge against the run and can rush the passer.

    Love Crawford and McLellin. Get both of those guys, and that'd be great

    Easily the best pass rusher in the draft. Team had nothing to play for this year. If he is playing for his second contract, he should be plenty motivated. I'd rather have DeCastro but dont think the team sees it that way. Think they see JPP.
