Don't forget Trumaine Johnson CB/WR, more discussed as an NFL prospect on the Griz board than Chase, alho' I agree Chase is a good prospect.

Tru is the best NFL prospect on the team right now, but he'll be a junior next year so wouldn't go until the 2012 draft (assuming he doesn't leave early, but I doubt he will).

I think that is plenty of size...I don't think Kroy was that big when he got to the falcant's. He's huge now.

I think if he can put on about 15 pounds he'll be good size for a OLB. May favorite OLB in the NFL is Tully Banta-Cain from the Patriots and he's 6'2" 250

NAU QB Michael Herrick, a Walter Payton Award finalist last season, and the best passer in the FCS, will be a lower round draft selection in 2011 due to his size (6-1/205). But he's every bit as good as some of the BCS QBs they're touting for high draft picks. The Ole Miss transfer is as accurate as anybody in the draft and is compared to Drew Brees of the Saints in many areas. Watch out for Herrick!

Really?!? Whitney is a very good college QB, but then again so was Eric Crouch. A guy like Armanti Edwards gets drafted late as an athlete/WR. Whitney unless something notable changes his senior year, isn't getting drafted as a QB.....

Yeah. I mean, not taking anything away from his accomplishments, but he does not have a pro delivery.

Regarding our own guy Devlin, I don't see where he has a sniff at the top three rounds unless he takes us to Chatty. He doesn't have near the size or arm strength of Joe, though his accuracy and smarts are phenomenal. I could see Pat going anywhere from F/A to maybe third round with a good year. :twocents:

Without going into great detail there are some things killing him that I can't talk about on here. I will re-check him in the fall but I don't think he is going to be a guy many teams would even leave on their board as a player they would bring in, let alone draft.


Can't say I like the sound of that.

Kevin Hughes, Left Tackle, 6-4, 296, Southeastern Louisiana, has been drawing quite a bit of interest from scouts this spring...while he doesn't possess ideal size, he's a great athlete who can run, has excellent feet and excels in pass protection...played well against Ole Miss and shut down UCA's Larry Hart and Markel Carter last fall...IMO, he's the best returning OL in the SLC.

Not many 2011s, but some 2012 to look to:

RB Edwin Gowins
QB Michael Coulter
CB Al-Majid Hudgins

Possibly a few of the Hofstra transfers as well
Maysonet
Jacklowski

Will be interesting to see how Priore handles his crowded backfield.

Judging by how high Ducasse went, I'd say Ben Ijalana (LT) has a good shot to go in that same area of the 2nd round if not higher.

If he's not playing baseball, and depending on the team need and who's drafting where, I can see Matt Szczur (WR/KR) going as high as late 2nd also.

Staying on the offensive side, Chris Whitney (QB) could go as high as 4th/5th round,
or he could slip and find his way on a team as an UFA.

Aaron Ball (RB) depending on what kind of year he has this year could be a middle to late round pick, or be an UFA.

Angelo Babbaro (RB) UFA

Brant Clouser (OL) should get drafted in the late rounds, but may slip to UFA.

On the defense, Terence Thomas (LB) will probably be a 5th round pick or slip to UFA.

Marquis Kirkland (LB) UFA.

John Dempsey (S) UFA.


No way Sczcur goes as high as the 2nd round. If he does get drafted, it will be late.

You're on crack if you think Whitney is an NFL QB. He won't get drafted, and I'd be shocked if he got offered a UFA contract.

Ijalana is Nova's only lock to get drafted, and I agree he could go 1st day.

Ijalana is the top guy by far. 2nd-4th round range I would say.

Whitney is a tryout type player. Don't see him getting drafted. Ball is just a productive back. There are so many of them. Free agent at best.

Clouser is an FA.

Thomas and Kirkland are free agents I think.

Dempsey is a marginal tryout player. I could see FA but not a definite one.

SIU will be young this year, but All-American CB Korey Lindsey is a certain draft pick. QB Chris Dieker has NFL size, 6'5"/ 230, and a cannon arm, but missed half of last year with a broken collarbone and is learning his 3rd offense in 4 years. I don't know if he'll get drafted but he'll be in some camps.

Parker is a good player but mostly a pass rusher right now and lacks the bulk to play inside at the NFL level. He is a definite free agent though because I have seen him wreak havoc on opponents. He is an explosive, fast, and strong player worth a look.

McBride lacks the bulk in my mind but he is a productive player that could get serious looks if he bulks up. I was told he ran pretty decent at his junior pro day.

Grayson is stiff and not explosive. Free agent at best right now. He also has some injury issues in the past.

Rogers is just show but a heck of a player with versatility, speed, and good explosion. I think he's a solid PFA.

To me Lindsey is the best SIU prospect since Brandon Jacobs and I was high on Karim last year. Dieker is a free agent in my mind. I consider a cannon arm to be Flacco and Skelton. His arm is a little below both of them but is strong for sure.

Another sleeper at W&M is DT Harold Robertson who is a force inside, physical, strong, and quick at 6'2 290lbs. I have watched him play the 4-3 and the nose tackle in a 3-4. He has proven to be very effective and take on countless double teams. This spring he and Bryan Jean-Pierre pretty much stole the show on defense and were constantly in the backfield. I think with the loss of our heralded seniors, these guys are now able to showcase their abilities. He had been hampered by some injuries but he is now at 100%. I think Harold may be listed as a Junior though so I guess he would be a 2012 prospect if true.

David Miller, W&M's rising senior punter, is no dark horse...he is already on the lists of many NFL clubs.

Miller's booming, high punts have consistently hit the magic NFL hang time standard of from five seconds up to a remarkable 5.3 seconds and rarely are his punts returned. He also excels at shorter punts that start opposing teams within their twenty-yard line and uses directional out-of-bounds pooch kicks where the situation demands.

He is the best William and Mary punter in memory and possibly the best ever in the CAA.

One of the most underrated players on a team!

A good punter last year would have possibly won UNI at least 1, maybe 2, games last year.

JMU:
-Theo Sherman, OT, listed last season at 6'4", 300: Same thing. Started the last 3 seasons for JMU at OT. Was All CAA 3rd team, should be JMU's only other pre season 1st team selection. Shot at PFA
-Ronnell Brown, DT, last season listed at 6'2", 260: was 3rd team All CAA, should be preseason 1st team. Too small for DT at next level. Probably not quick enough for DE. Long shot PFA.

Could be the biggest sleeper in the CAA, as noone outside of JMU has likely heard of him, and who could certainly be a PFA:
Nick Emmons, who will start at DT opposite Brown:
-07'- started for Army at DE as a soph.
-08'- Started 1st game I believe as a junior then left West Point.
-09- Transferred to JMU, sat out due to transfer issue, took a redshirt.
-10- will start at JMU as a rSr.

This was in the Harrisonburg Daily News Record at the end of last season in an article talking about what JMU lost and has coming back for 2010 (can't give link since its subscription only):

"...In addition, Army transfer Nick Emmons looked like a beast-in-waiting while practicing with the team this season. Matthews expected Emmons to play this year, but the NCAA ruled he had to sit out a year after transferring from West Point.

Matthews declined to say why, pointing to privacy issues, but said Emmons is "close to a 4.0 student."

"He continued working," Matthews said. "He practiced very hard this fall. It'd break my heart every Tuesday watching him rush the passer and thinking he was not going to play on Saturday."..."

From article at end of March:

"...Even the defensive line, which loses a pair of all-conference performers in Moats and Daniels, appears solid. Army transfer Nick Emmons (6-foot-3, 262 pounds) could play at either end or tackle and, Matthews believes, has a chance to be a dominating player.

"We thought last year in August, he was our second-best defensive lineman," Matthews said. "Nick just has tremendous ability."

Emmons expected to play right away at JMU, but the NCAA ruled he had to sit out a year. He spent that time impressing the coaching staff with his ability and effort on the scout team. Now, he's eager to show what he can do in an actual game.

"I actually have something to play for," Emmons said Tuesday. "I've been champing at the bit for quite a while."..."

JMU lost 3 of 4 DTs off the 2 deep: 1 starting DT, 2nd team All CAA Sam Daniels, and both 2nd teamers, one a senior and the other rising rJr Max Alexandre who tore his ACL this spring and will miss the 2010 season. That means Emmons will be at DT instead of DE.
