    1. LaRon Landry, LSU
    Positives: Size (6-foot-plus, 213 pounds), speed, and athleticism. ... Excellent instincts. ... Able to cover tight ends one-on-one. ... Hard hitter. ... Shows superb anticipation and isn't easily fooled by play fakes or misdirection plays. ... Toughness. ... Competitiveness.
    Negatives: Very few, although he will sometimes get too carried away with launching himself at an opponent and fail to make contact.
    2. Reggie Nelson, Florida (Underclassman)
    Positives: Size (5-11-plus, 198 pounds), speed, and athleticism. ... Can cover tight ends and slot receivers one-on-one. ... Hard hitter. ... Plays with aggressiveness, especially in run support. ... Shows excellent discipline; doesn't bite on play fakes. ... Does a nice job of reading the quarterback. ... Outstanding hands and often comes up with the tough interception.
    Negatives: Not many, although he occasionally gets a bit too aggressive when attacking the line of scrimmage against the run.
    3. Michael Griffin, Texas
    Positives: Size (5-11-plus, 201 pounds), strength, speed, and athleticism ... Excels in man-to-man coverage ... Tremendously hard hitter ... Able to hold up well against larger blockers at the line of scrimmage ... Toughness ... Competitiveness.
    Negatives: Needs to develop better instincts to avoid being caught out of position ... Could stand to improve his tackling skills.
    4. Brandon Meriweather, Miami (Fla.)
    Positives: Speed, athleticism. ... Able to cover receivers man-to-man. ... Tremendous instincts. ... Avoids biting on play fakes. ... Excellent hands; can make difficult interceptions. ... Plays with aggressiveness and does a nice job of attacking the line in run support.
    Negatives: Doesn't have a great deal of bulk or strength, which limits the impact of his hits and can make him vulnerable against larger ball-carriers. ... Character questions.
    5. Aaron Rouse, Virginia Tech
    Positives: Size (6-4, 223 pounds), speed, and athleticism. ... Outstanding instincts. ... Avoids being fooled by play fakes. ... Reads quarterbacks well. ... Superb hands. ... Uses height to his advantage in out-jumping receivers and knocking down passes. ...
    Negatives: Sometimes his long legs cause him to take a misstep and he finds himself at a disadvantage in coverage.

    i hope that watkins or hamlin work out but the BPA philosophy which makes sense in an immediate but impractical sense seems to be the prevailing wisdom....so if nelson is there......
