Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Hyde finished his Ohio State career with 3,198 yards (6th best) and 41 touchdowns (4th best). In 2013 was the Big 10's Ameche-Dayne Running Back of the Year after rushing for 1,521 yards and 15 scores. This is a 230-pound truck that runs with tremendous power. He's a between the tackles, downhill bulldozer that nets yards after contact. He's surprisingly light on his feet for his size and style. Hyde can catch out of the backfield and do a solid job in pass protection.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Adams posted a huge 2013 season and benefited greatly with playing alongside quarterback Derek Carr at Fresno State. All he did was catch 131 passes for 1,645 yards and scoring 24 touchdowns. Those were all school records. Adams was a two-time All-American and winner of the Paul Warfield Award. In his two playing seasons he finished with 233 receptions and 38 touchdowns while averaging nine catches and 116.5 receiving yards per game. Those are insane numbers. Adams has excellent ball skills and superior leaping ability (39.5" vertical jump at NFL Combine). He's not a speed demon but fast enough (4.56 forty, 4.30 short shuttle). Adams is still young with plenty of time to continue to develop.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Johnson had a solid career for LSU but never lived up to his five-star billing, as he was one of the top prospects in the class of 2011. He was a three and out guy in Baton Rouge and could have really benefited from another year as a Tiger. Johnson posted 16 starts over 40 games, finishing with 70 tackles, 22 tackles for a loss, and seven sacks. This past season Johnson earned 2nd Team All-SEC honors. He has average size (6-2/308) for the position. Johnson plays with good leverage and has good athleticism for a big man. He's quick, has a fast get off and can move well laterally. Johnson has tools to be a good one.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
McCarron played as a freshman at Alabama but took over the starting quarterback role as a sophomore and never looked back, leading the Crimson Tide to two national titles. He finished 45-4 as a starter, though he lost his final two games (to Auburn and Oklahoma). But this kid is a winner and has won titles at every level. He has good size (6-3/220), throws a beautiful ball and is a very accurate passer. McCarron guided a pro-style offense in Tuscaloosa and showed that he's an very good manager of the offense and knows how to distribute the ball to his playmakers.

Fuller was an All-ACC selection in 2013 after only playing in nine games. He had 24 tackles, two interceptions and 10 pass breakups last fall. Over his career at Virginia Tech he had 41 career starts. This is an experienced defensive back who has a chance to excel at cornerback in the NFL. He has good size (6-0/190) and runs well (4.49 forty, 4.19 shuttle). Fuller also posted big numbers in the vertical jump (38.5") and broad jump (10'8"). Fuller seems to always be around the ball. He can play in coverage and support the run.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Moncrief declared for the NFL Draft after his junior season. He finished his three year career with 156 receptions for 2,371 yards and 20 touchdowns. This is an impressive wide receiver with nice physical attributes. He stands over 6-foot-2, 221-pounds. At the NFL Combine Moncrief ran a 4.4 [forty], 39.5" vertical jump and 11' broad jump. He also had the fastest 10 yard split [on forty] of all the wide receivers at 1.50. Those are some outstanding numbers at his size. Moncrief is an athletic, smooth and talented big play wide receiver. He just needs to continue to work on his route running. This kid has a seriously high ceiling.

Crichton started 37 out of the 38 games he played in at Oregon State over a three year period. He finished his career with 51 tackles for a loss and 22.5 sacks. He made 1st Team All Pac 12 in 2012 and second team last fall. He has good size at almost 6-foot-3, 273-pounds. Crichton has a nice combination of speed, quickness and power. He gets off the ball and up field well. Crichton can be a good edge guy who can also play the run. He has nice upside.

Moses had 43 career starts at Virginia at both left and right tackle. He has terrific size at 6-foot-6, 314-pounds and very long arms (arm length of 35 3/8). He's not as athletic as the tackles rated ahead of him but uses his size and length to his advantage more times than not. Moses is solid in the run game but not overwhelming. He looks to project as a right tackle in the NFL.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Lawrence landed at Boise State via Butler Community College in Kansas, where he was a second team All-American. He two seasons with the Broncos he has 34 tackles for a loss and 21 sacks. This is a good, rangy athlete that can really rush the passer and make a ton of plays behind the line of scrimmage. Lawrence is a shade under 6-foot-3, 251-pounds. But he's long with an arm length of 33 ¾" and large hands of 11". He's quick off the ball and possesses a good initial burst. He only ran a 4.8 forty at NFL Combine but had a very good 10 yard split of 1.62 (twice), which was one of the very best times of the defensive ends.

Ward had a nice season, recording 92 tackles, seven interceptions, 17 passes defended, 10 pass break ups, and 2.5 tackles for a loss. He was 1st Team All-MAC and 3rd Team All-American. Ward is not the biggest safety in this draft class (5-11/193) but he flies around and makes plays all over the field. Much of that can be attributed to his preparation and instincts. He's smooth, quick, and has a good burst. This is a solid safety that is good in run support and versatile in pass coverage.

Smith had a fantastic 2013 season for the Seminoles and Florida State's national championship run. He finished as the team's leading tackler with 90 tackles and had 15 stops in the title game against Auburn. Smith also added 9.5 tackles for a loss, two sacks, three interceptions, and seven passes defended. He's a big time leader who loves to play the game. Smith's on the smaller side (6-3/218) but has length and room to bulk up in the NFL. He has good closing speed and shows a nice burst. Smith plays with a nice motor and is aggressive, sometimes too much and that can get him in trouble.

Carey had a big 2013 season, finishing with 1,885 yards and 19 touchdowns on the ground and 26 receptions for 173 yards and one score through the air. He was a workhorse, leading the nation in carries per game with 29. Carey was named the Pac 12 Offensive Player of the Year and All-American. He's not very big (5-9/207) by NFL standards but runs bigger than his size. Carey can move a pile, deliver blows to defenders and always seems to find positive yards after contact. He's not a burner (4.7 forty at Combine) and that will worry some scouts. Carey has good vision and balance and doesn't waste time dancing around, rather he gets up field. He can catch the football and does an adequate job (needs to improve) in pass pro. This is a durable and productive back. He has had some off the field issues in the past.

Murray finished with SEC career records for completions (921), passing yards (13,166), touchdown passes (121) and total offense (13,562), and became the first quarterback in league history to throw for 3,000+ yards in four straight seasons. This is a prepared signal caller who knows and studies the game and his opponents. He's an accurate passer who can throw in tight windows. Sometimes he's overly aggressive and too much of a gunslinger. Murray has a quick release, above average arm and has deceptive mobility. He does possess all the tools to be a quarterback on Sundays, assuming he can recover from a torn ACL suffered late in the year.

Landry is a receiver that does the little things well and he will block on the perimeter for his teammates.

Jean-Baptiste is a former high school and junior college (Fort Scott) wide receiver that converted to cornerback during the 2011 season at Nebraska. He was a very successful transition. He has great size at just under 6-foot-3, 218-pounds. He's not a blazer but runs well enough (4.61 forty at NFL Combine with a 10 yard split of 1.55). In addition to his size Jean-Baptitse has outstanding length (32 3/8") and vertical jump (41.5"). He was 2nd Team All-Big 10 this past season. Jean-Baptiste started 17 games over last two years, including 12 in 2013. He had four interceptions. Can he be that big cornerback that NFL teams are looking for? Jean-Baptiste certainly has many of the traits teams are looking for and he will have the ability to matchup against the bigger receivers.

He really benefited from playing in an ideal offense at Baylor for his game. How will his skill set translate to the NFL?

Mettenberger was one of the most improved players in college football last season. He did sustain a ACL injury in the Tigers final regular season game against Arkansas. Mettenberger completed 65% of his passes, throwing for 3,082 yards, 22 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He's enormous at 6-foot-5, 224-pounds with a huge arm. He has size, stature and arm strength similar to Ryan Mallet. This kid can make all throw throws and has some serious talent. But he has only shown that one season. Mettenberger will need some time to develop and also make sure his knee is rehabbed properly.

Seferian-Jenkins is the University of Washington career leader in receptions (146), yards (1,838) and touchdowns (21) for tight ends. He wasn't productive this past fall as he was in 2012 but Seferian-Jenkins still finished with 36 receptions for 450 yards and eight touchdowns. He has the body frame of an offensive tackle because he's a long 6-foot-5, 262-pounds with an arm length of 33 ¾. In fact, many thought when he came out of high school he would grow into a tackle. But Seferian-Jenkins had a productive three years for the Huskies and here he is. Seferian-Jenkins is athletic and can move for his size. He has soft hands. Seferian-Jenkins was flexed out or in slot way more than lining up in-line next offensive tackle because of scheme and how they used him. He will have to become a better blocker.

Richardson is just massive and long. Despite his size he could stand to re-distribute some of his weight, dropping some off the midsection. That would certainly help him add some quickness, though he is not pedestrian. This is a very good offensive guard prospect that his adept in pass pro and in the run game. Richardson is strong, especially in the lower body and he has shown versatility at Baylor.

Mitchell has good size at 5-foot-11, 192-pounds but only ran 4.63 [forty] at the NFL Combine. He did post a 4.00 short shuttle, which shows he has good quickness and lateral movement. This correlates with how well he can break on thrown ball. I see him working best in a zone intensive scheme.

This is a good athlete for the position. He gets off the ball well, is strong and excels in the run game. Mewhort shows pretty agile feet to slide and move in pass pro.

Thomas has home run speed and quickness and is a dangerous return man and excels in making plays in space. He's this draft's Tavon Austin. Thomas had 15 career touchdowns of 30 yards or greater. Thomas missed a handful of games in 2013 with an ankle injury.
