re: Who are some late round gems???


Since everyone is whoring out their favorite team's players. I'm going to do the same in this thread. Keep an eye on Melvin White. He's a CB who has great size at 6-3 191 Ibs. I think I remember some talk about him possibly converting to safety. But I dont know if that's true. He will be playing for the East in the East vs West Senior Bowl game. Keep your eye out for him.

Here's a video of him from last year. The quality kinda sucks but it's the best highlight video of him I could find. My favorite part is when he knocks the hell out of a ULM player. It's at the 0:42 mark and a again (with a much better shot of it) at the 2:53 mark.

Stansly Maponga DE TCU



Ranked #11 of 236 DEs by DraftScout (but has likely dropped due to injury)

H: 6'2" W: 265
40 time: 4.7s

Just announced he was coming out. He was injured most of this year and still absorbed enough double teams to allow Freshman Devonte Fields to be Big12 POY.

Basically 2 1/2 years of stats:




Strong (REALLY strong - weightroom record holder type), smart, great locker room guy, not a troublemaker on or off the field. Can play either side as well as shade inside for a "fast line" type package.

He should go in the late 3rd/early 4th if he shows well at his Pro Day/Combine. There's a chance he will have surgery on the ankle that's hampered him all season and the surgery itself or the recovery could hurt his Combine or cause him to miss it altogether. In which case he'll drop to the 5th or 6th.

ETA:

I'm sure he'll have a highlight video out soon now that he's declared. But just to show his hustle and speed.

Maponga Destroys RGIII Initially slowed by Braylon Broughton, Maponga comes across the field to strip tackle RGIII and then recover the ball.

Maponga v Texas 2012 - Strips QB Ash and recovers

Maponga v Texas 2012 - sacks McCoy

MJ might go in the 4th-5th round of the draft. NFL.com's player comparison is Richard Sherman LINK

2 big guys I'm looking forward to seeing how they develop:

Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State. 6'6" 330
Very big athletic frick, but only played football for 1 year. He played basketball for Marist before transferring to FSU.
ETA: looked it up, he actually played football for one season at Marist as well. So 2 seasons of football

Montori Hughes, DT, Tennessee-Martin. 6'4" 327
Kicked off of Tennessee's team. Dude has red flags all over his resume. But his combination of size and quickness will make him hard to pass up if he is available after round 5.

I also think Ryan Swope from A&M has the right skillset to be a solid Lance Moore type NFL WR, but don't see us taking him because we have our Lance.

Ryan Swope is a prick. He's also about one good whack away from a permanent head injury. Do not want.

Is Baccari Rambo a projected late rounder? I have no clue where he is projected and Tyrann Mathieu.
