Our top rated defensive linemen this year is Fletcher Cox of Mississippi St. in an outstanding tackle group. Cox has been our #1 tackle for the three technique position and the #1 end for the five technique spot since the day he declared in January 2012. There has been no movement at the top of the defensive line here with Cox remaining our #1 blue chip prospect at two critical positions for both NFL front lines. He fits all 32 NFL defensive fronts and is a top 10 value here who probably is selected in the top 15 overall choices.

DT Fletcher Cox – Draft Insiders’ Yearbook Scouting Report - NFL Draft 2012

1. Fletcher Cox #94 - 6’4” 300 lbs. - Mississippi St. - Sp. 4.8 - Rating 93
Hindu Theory: Darnell Dockett

Explosive junior tackle completed an outstanding career that earned him SEC honors his final two seasons. Fletcher was instrumental in the Bulldogs tough defense that ranked high in the SEC, a conference that features many of the nation’s best defensive prospects. He was a dominant performer who elevated every other defender’s play up a level and did this despite facing regular double team blocking. He had a short three year stay in the SEC with improvement annually especially his final performance. He is a big athlete with fine overall size and great arm length that gives him a nice advantage on the interior. He displayed dominant talent last fall with rare explosiveness on the snap and the power to finish. He is a tough quick tackle who has been a force in the middle, displaying an explosive burst to gain a huge advantage which required double team blocking regularly over his late career. He is an athletic defender who has played both tackle and end as a collegian and projects to both the tackle spot in the 4-3 set and the five technique end spot in a three man front. He can move around to present favorable mismatches along the line with an equally high level of play. Though he lined up inside mainly at tackle in a four man front, the experience at different positions helped develop him into the most versatile lineman in this class. Though, he is not a good fit for the nose tackle spot, he has developed all the other techniques especially best suited for the inside three technique position. He has a big athletic angular body with rare quickness, functional strength and footwork that enables him to be a force as a pass rusher and a run support defender. Late in his career, he displayed consistent big play ability that changed games and finished with 25 TFL and 9 sacks despite double-teaming regularly. He made fast improvement in his technique in general and his hand usage by facing special attention weekly on the inside. He is a natural three-technique tackle who has a thick and powerful frame with top playing strength and great explosive quickness to be very disruptive in the tackle box and push the pocket. He has a very good motor and has shown advanced technique especially strong hands that allowed him to use his talent the fullest. He has a developed strong hand punch that strikes blockers and allows him to counter with a combination of quickness and power to maintain an advantage. He shows consistency with his punch and counters quickly with power to win late on the down. He has outstanding quickness to shoot gaps with the closing burst of speed to make impact plays in the backfield. He has good range and can flatten down the line and make plays at the sidelines. He stacks, sheds and quickly locates the ball with incredible short area speed to finish and make big plays. He shows top functional strength, flexibility and stoutness at the POA with sound leverage. As a junior, he made 12 starts and posted 56 tackles with 14.5 TFL, 5 sacks, 1 FR and 1 FF while earning 1st team SEC honors. As a sophomore, he made 29 tackles with 6.5 TFL and 2.5 sacks while starting 11 of 12 games. At the NFL Combine, he came in at 6’4” 298 lbs. and 34.5” arms. He ran a super 4.79 time with 30 reps, 26” VL and 8’7” BJ and good agility drills of 4.53 short shuttle and 7.07 three cone. He is similar to Darnell Dockett in size, AA and versatility, in addition to their rare combination of quickness and power. He is at a similar LOD to that Pro Bowl defender at the same stage, though he has more upside potential. He responded with a big final season that established him as a blue chip NFL prospect. This is a unique defender who is capable of being a difference maker with early impact ability on either front line. Athletic tackle with the skill set to become a rookie starter after being battle tested in the tough SEC where he showed dominant talent vs NFL caliber linemen. Top 10 value with mid round prospect overall. The most NFL ready defensive linemen in this class and capable of being an immediate impact starter. Clubs like the Dolphins, Bengals and Seahawks are highly interested in the top half of 1st round. Athletic defender with impact ability and future Pro Bowl regular.
Draft Projection: 1st Round - Top 15 Pick

Robert Griffin III #10 - 6’2” 220 lbs. - Baylor - Sp. 4.45 Rating 91
Hindu Theory - Donovan McNabb

Athletic slick throwing junior passer completed an incredible season for the Bears, leading them to national recognition during a Heisman Trophy winning year. Robert is an elite athlete who shined at the NFL Combine displaying top athleticism for the position. Over his short career, he improved significantly each season, combining smarts, intangibles with the athleticism to be a top flight NFL starter. He had an amazing 2011 performance where he won virtually every major award that influenced his decision to turn pro. As a prospect, he made fast progress and overall developmental while starting every game the past two years since an ACL injury ended his 2009 season early. He has the elite package scouts seek in a top flight pro prospect – strong arm, fast, smart and tough. He really looks the part as an NFL starting QB, instinctive, strong arm, incredible scrambling ability and the great fire to succeed. He is capable of making all the throws and standing tall in the pocket. He has improved his accuracy, decision-making and command of the offense with playing experience that raised his level of play annually. He can drive the ball down the field when given the proper time in the pocket. His QB efficiency ranked among the nation’s best the past two years. He has improved on his passing accuracy that gets the ball into tight windows where playing experience. His mobility is amazing and allowed him to make big plays both in and outside the pocket. He is a rare scrambler with excellent foot speed and lateral quickness that combined with keen instincts and vision allows him to make big plays. As a runner, he has the cutting skills of a scatback and shows great vision and decision making. He knows where the chains are and when to get out of bounds. He throws well on the move where his accuracy remains high. He has the physical package to become an early potential pro starter, though he still needs to refine his overall game in all areas of play. He has a lean frame and needs to add muscle to hold up vs the NFL type pass rushers he will face weekly. He shows the strength to fight off defensive linemen regularly and make a big play out of a broken play and he did it often over the course of a game. He will warrant an early 1st round selection off rare athleticism and intangibles, though his lack of experience on the finer points leaves concerns about his overall readiness for the NFL. He is coming off an excellent junior season when he matured in all areas especially showing the intangibles to lead an offense and handle pressure in championship caliber games. He must learn to hang in the pocket and go through his progressions quicker to continue to make the big throw when under heavy pressure. He sits in the pocket often while under a pass rush and retains his poise well to give his receivers time to make their moves in coverage. At times, he relies on his incredible scrambling ability too early on the play which limits his development to pick up secondary receivers that is a must to be a successful NFL starter. As a passer, he has a three quarters delivery and good footwork for a quick setup that allows him to deliver the ball with accuracy and timing. He is very adept throwing the deep ball where he combines touch, accuracy and velocity very well. He is still a young passer who needs work on overall defense recognition and decision-making. He needs to learn to look off the free safety more consistently and eliminate turnovers. He must learn to look for secondary receivers with more patience in the pocket. At times, he forces too many passes into heavy coverage, attempting to do too much or misreading coverage. He has a good arm to make all the throws, though he needs work on his intermediate throws where his accuracy and timing needs development. He has a compact delivery and is able to release the ball quickly. His overall accuracy is excellent which allows receivers to make plays after the reception.
The Numbers: As a junior, he threw for 4293 yards with 291 completions of 402 attempts for 37 TD passes and just 6 picks. He completed 72% of his passes, significant improvement over his earlier career. He rarely made mistakes when throwing on the move. As a sophomore, he threw for 3501 yards with 304 completions of 454 attempts for 22 TD passes and 8 picks. He completed 67% of his passes. At the NFL Combine, he came in at over 6’2” and 223 lbs. He ran 4.41 and 4.44 times with a blazing 1.52 ten year split time. He added a fine 39” VL and 10’ BJ. At his Baylor pro day, he threw the ball very well and ran through his drills nicely displaying a fine arm and great mobility. He is similar to former top prospect Donovan McNabb in size, AA and upside potential.
The Skinny: Fast developing young QB with all the physical and mental talent to become a premier NFL passer in time. Scouts rave about his athletic ability, leadership and character. He will command a top two selection with the Redskins paying a huge ransom for the 2nd overall pick. He is the type that needs to be in a setting where he can compete for the starting job early and get comfortable in a system. He still needs development both physically and mentally to hold up to the rigors of the NFL. Top flight NFL starter with the skills to really benefit from the tutelage of HC Mike Shanahan. Excellent talent with the complete skill set to become the face of a franchise.
Draft Projection: 1st Round - Top Two selection

NFL Combine 2012 Workout
QB * Robert Griffin III of Baylor ran in the low 4.40s and interviewed very well. He elevated his stock and probably goes off the board #2 overall with a good Pro Day throwing the ball. QB * Andrew Luck of Stanford had a strong performance, showing fine athleticism and football smarts to compete for early NFL playing time. RB Doug Martin of Boise St had a very good showing and is a complete back who will push for immediate pro playing time. RB *Lamar Miller of Miami ran in the low 4.40s and caught the ball well. He helped his cause nicely. RB David Wilson of Virginia Tech tested off the charts in most drills and helped his cause as expected. WR * Stephen Hill of Georgia Tech had an outstanding effort that included a sub 4.40 time and over a 11’ broad jump and just under 40” vertical leap. Scouts will do extensive work on him going into his Pro Day. WR Chris Owusu of Stanford ran well and helped himself. At interviews he stated he is still interested in football despite multiple concussions.

OT *Matt Kalil of Southern Cal and OG * David DeCastro of Stanford were both impressive and solidified their #1 selection. Both are NFL ready and will be off the board early in the first round. OG Amini Silatolu of Midwestern St (Tx) had a strong week that a small college lineman needs to show his level of development. He combines quickness and power and grades out a starting interior lineman.

DT * Fletcher Cox of Mississippi St had a big performance and helped his stock significantly. He has a great combination of power and quickness with the versatility to play in either front. DT * Dontari Poe of Memphis was simply awesome at 346 lbs. and running a sub 5.0 time. Cox and Poe head an outstanding defensive tackle class that will highlight the NFL Draft 2012. LB Mychal Kendricks of California displayed top athleticism with speed, quickness and strength. He is smaller than the prototypical backer and needed the effort. Two junior cornerbacks Josh Robinson of Central Florida and Stephon Gilmore of South Carolina ran very well. Robinson was a little known corner who tests better than he plays. Gilmore is a fine athlete with speed and size and could warrant a late #1 pick off the strong performance.

Two receivers that fell significantly were junior Mohamed Sanu of Rutgers and senior Kendall Wright of Baylor. Both ran poorly. Sanu ran over a 4.65 time. He is not a burner, though he was expected to hit at least the mid 4.55 time area. His March 21st Pro Day at Rutgers is huge for him to establish himself as a Day two prospect. Wright was overhyped on TV as a possible sub 4.40 sprinter. Nonsense. He is probably a sub 4.50 and will probably prove it at the Baylor workout. He is a legitimate vertical threat but putting him in elite class is bad scouting. TE * Dwayne Allen of Clemson ran in the 4.90 time area that makes his Pro Day vital for him to earn a top 100 selection.

LB * Vontaze Burfict of Arizona St continues his descent that has developed over the 2011 season that culminated with a bowl game suspension. He ran poorly and looked average in drills. His stock is in a free fall that only a strong Pro Day corrects. Junior CB Cliff Harris of Oregon is another athlete who came up very short of expectations. His final season suspension was a red flag and a poor performance in Indy leaves huge questions about his pro playing career.

QB Robert Griffin III Highlights NFL Combine Workout

NFL Combine 2012 Workouts

The NFL Combine 2012 is completing workout drills Monday/ Tuesday for over 300 athletes at the week long event.

Photo - QB Robert Griffin III - Baylor

The NFL Combine process should establish what you should already know on 80-90% of the athletes after a long scouting resume begun on prospects as underclassmen. The Combine must verify those facts and which players fail to show the skill sets necessary to make the jump to the pro game. The 10-20% variance on performance is the work that leaves NFL clubs with quick homework on prospects who either over or under performed from their norm. That’s what makes the NFL Draft process what it is.

March Newsletter will have an extensive NFL Combine and Veteran Free Agency Reports plus updated Mock Draft

NFL Combine 2012 - Player Performances

Baylor QB Robert Griffin had an outstanding NFL Combine performance that probably guaranteed a top 2-3 selection this April. Griffin ran an excellent 4.41 time in the 40-yard sprint and also posted a 10’ broad jump and a 39” vertical jump. He was impressive in interviews and a kid with the athletic and mental talent to become a highly rated NFL passer.

He may not pass blue chip passer Andrew Luck in the draft process, but will probably cause much discussion among top five clubs with a trade highly probable in the top three selections. Luck had a good workout that included a 4.67 time with a 36” vertical leap that duplicated Cam Newton’s performance at the NFL Combine 2011. Neither Luck or Griffin threw at the event and will wait until their Pro Days in late March.

DT Dontari Poe of Memphis had an excellent workout. He was time in the 4.98 time and did 44 reps in the lifting after weighting in at 346 lbs. at just under 6’5” He did an amazing 1.70 time in the ten year split and also did a 29.5” VL and 8’9” BJ which is incredible for the size. He is a kid who solidified a top 25 selection with many clubs back tracking on the redshirt junior from Conference USA. Poe fits both fronts and is a fast rising prospect. DT Kendall Reyes of UConn had an outstanding performance that included a 4.95 time with 36 reps, 34.5” vertical leap and 9’5” broad jump. DE/LB Melvin Ingram of South Carolina had a strong workout and is one of the more diverse defenders in years. He ran a 4.79 time at 264 lbs. and under 6’2”. He had a 34.5” VL and 9’7” BJ with reps in the lifting. The 3-4 defensive clubs are working overtime on this prospect. This is a kid who can play both up and down and gives a DC a unique athlete to create different pre snap fronts to give a defense a huge advantage.

The NFL Combine is scheduled from February 22-28. The Pro Day schedule will start only four days later when Missouri University will hold the first on campus workout for NFL prospects.

Pro Day workouts are held on campus at school facilities. The interview and medical testing components are addressed at the NFL Combine. The athletic drills, 40-yard dash, vertical leap, broad jump, bench press, 3-cone drill, etc. can take place at either event. It has become a chance for athletes not invited to the NFL Combine to show their talent in front of NFL personnel decision-makers.

Interestingly, the Pro Day dates for Stanford and Baylor are both scheduled for March 22nd with the top passers Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III both expected to perform. They are the top two QBs with Luck most likely the top overall selection and Griffin probably going in the top four or five overall choices.
