Best NFL Draft Prospects for Day 2

May 9th 2014 04:00
Best NFL Draft Prospects for Day 2


QB – Logan Thomas – Virginia Tech – Has all the size measurable that NFL brass has been stuck on for a long time, so someone will draft him higher than they should. It always seemed he could have done more at times and had a low completion percentage in college.

QB – Derek Carr – Fresno State – Younger brother of 2002 first overall pick David Carr threw a ton in college. He has a super quick release that he’ll need in the NFL. Doesn’t have a big build but is tough and a spirited leader on the field. Has a good pump fake and adept at back shoulder throws.

RB – Andre Williams – Boston College – his long powerful strides are made for stiff-arms and running through & over people but he’ll have to gain more lateral movement to gain yards against the faster NFL defenses he’ll be facing

RB – Ka’Deem Carey – Arizona – isn’t a burner but has awesome balance and short quick strides that enable him to stay on his feet and constantly adjust for extra yards, completely scorched the PAC-12 for the last two seasons

RB – Tre Mason – Auburn – his great vision & acceleration will let him prosper even with smaller holes that close quicker in the NFL and his receiving skills will give him plenty of opportunities on the field

WR – Jordan Matthews –Vanderbilt – Jerry Rice’s cousin has a big catch radius and although he’s not explosive, has all the skills a pro needs to succeed

WR – Marquise Lee –USC – drop-off in production after peaking early is the likely reason for his drop, but he’ll be one of the first taken on day two

TE – Jace Amaro – Texas Tech – crazy one year production (106 1352 yards 7 TDs) make him a 1-2 round prospect with good hands, excellent feet and willingness to block

OT - Cyrus Kouandijo – Alabama – best remaining OT can do it all at a pro level

G – Xavier Su’A-Filo – UCLA – sticks out on film study as the guy staying with and finishing blocks until the whistle; a power blocker who can give a boost to a pro running game

C – Marcus Martin - USC – has good vision and awareness at the center position and can get to the second level

DT – Ra’Shede Hageman – Minnesota – has big long frame with strength to gain leverage against would be blockers and the former tight end and basketball player has athleticism to wiggle free and get after the QB or ball carrier

NT – Timmy Jernigan – Florida State – doesn’t have the ideal size for the position but does possess the low leverage blocking eating style needed for nose tackle in a 3-4

DE – Demarcus Lawrence – Boise State – has great speed and long arms to go with his relentless pursuit skills that should do very well as he gains needed strength and bulk in a pro system
