http://www.draftinsider.net/blog/?p=4492 Though not a surprise entry, Wisconsin’s John Clay is working hard in preparation for the combine. Sources told us he’s down to 250-pounds after playing the season at 275lbs. - Finally, with the ever present labor negotiations a constant topic of conversation in Mobile and the potential of a long lock out looming, the consensus is there will be a lot of surprise selections in April’s draft. Talented but raw prospects that will need time to develop are likely to fall by the wayside in favor of the lesser athletic yet more “NFL ready” players. Teams feel taking a developmental player in the first few rounds will be a waste of time since they are likely to miss out on rookie mini-camp, OTA’s and a host of other off season training critical for their development. In essence, depending on the length of the presumed lockout, 2011 could be a washout for a number of incoming rookies. This sentiment will be interesting to watch and see how it plays out with prospects such as Cam Newton.
