    THE SLEEPER FILE

    PROSPECTS TO WATCH FOR THE 2010 DRAFT

    1. Cory Greenwood, LB, Concordia (Canada); 6-2, 236, 4.50 … Canadian universities have never been particularly fertile grounds for NFL teams looking for pro prospects, however, that may be changing ever so slowly. Last year, for example, former Western Ontario DT Vaughn Martin was a surprise 4th round pick by San Diego, while Bishop’s RB Jamall Lee also drew some interest and eventually signed as a free agent with Carolina.

    And earlier this month, the CIS got some attention from the NFL when Bishop’s WR Steven Turner blitzed a 4.31 40 clocking at the CFL’s draft evaluation camp. While some NFL teams could be attracted by Turner’s speed, he’s actually not all polished a receiver;

    in fact, the best prospect in Canadian college football this year is Concordia LB Cory Greenwood. Greenwood, the CIS defensive player of the year is a 6-2, 236-pound specimen who is an outstanding athlete. Indeed, Greenwood put up numbers at the CFL camp that would have put him among the top LBs at the combine. Greenwood, for example, ran a 4.50 40 which would have been the fastest time among players at the position; he also clocked a 4.22 short shuttle, which would have been the second best time among LBs at the combine, while posting a 40-inch vertical leap which also would have been #2 at the combine. For good measure, Greenwood also managed a more than adequate 24 reps in the bench press. While he is a workout warrior who is also known for the time he spends in the film room, Greenwood is a tough, physical player with sideline-to-sideline range and decent instincts in coverage. Overall, Greenwood had 72 tackles in 2009nwood, including a couple of sacks and three other tackles for loss in the short Canadian college 8-game schedule. Greenwood also held up reasnably well as one of the two Canadians invited to this year's Shrine game. The issue though for Greenwood is that while he is a good athlete, he is very raw and will clearly need some developmental time to make it at the next level. There is also a question whether he is better suited to play inside or outside. Greenwood has mostly played ILB in Canada, but may be atd undersized for that slot in the NFL, while he is not necessarily a natural pass rusher off the edge.

    Oh yeah I was impressed with Williams in the pre-season. He really turned it on.

    Phillips gives our LB's assignments and not just read and react so thats probably why he didn't get on the field much due to not knowing all the assignments.

    I can't wait for some preseason football to watch these young guys.

    totally agree buddy, i think in preseason now jason williams can react and not think, and play like remember the caused sack he had in endzone that resulted in a td for us, he is loaded with talent,ability

    and he was playing a new position,so 2nd year he should really come on, brandon williams too
