DAVID MIMS, OT, VIRGINIA UNION
03/28/11 - Virginia Union Pro day: To the southeast, Virginia Union held its pro day in Richmond on March 18. Nine Virgina Union players joined seven players from small schools in the area to workout before representatives from 15 NFL teams. OT David Mims (6-8 1/4, 331) was the Panther of note, with 29 bench-press lifts and a 5.32 40-yard dash. He’s got size, with a 36 7/8 arms and a 86 1/8 wing span, and showed well with a 8-6 broad jump, 4.80 short shuttle and 8.10 three-cone drill. Mims has already met with the Detroit Lions and is scheduled to meet with the Baltimore Ravens down the road. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

Virginia Union OT David Mims Is No Longer A Sleeper

Virginia Union OT David Mims Is No Longer A Sleeper - The Virginia Union product, OT David Mims is a developmental lineman definitely worth taking a shot on. At 6-8, 331-pounds he’s definitely more of a right-sided player at the next level who is going to need some proper time to develop, however, physically and athletically the guy certainly possesses an NFL caliber skill set. He carries his weight well, has a thick base, long arms and displays natural fluidity and change of direction skills through contact when engaged. Mims also still has a ton of upside to his game and after his impressive pro day workout he definitely has scouts buzzing about his long term potential. I spoke with a scout this weekend who told me following his workout, “Unfortunately he’s not a sleeper anymore.”

Overview
Best offensive tackle prospect in the CIAA, and one of the best in all of DII football.
Strengths
Mammoth guy who gets off the ball fairly quickly for such a huge man. Will bury people. Shows a mean streak. Big, not fat. Drive blocks well in the running game, and the backs follow him. Anchors well in pass pro and is an immovable object. Can get downfield. Can get down and cut block well for a man mountain.
Weaknesses
Slow, labored back pedal. Below average feet for a LOT candidate. Looks like his best shot is at ROT. Feet are as good as 2009 mammoth ROT draftee, Phil Loadholt's, though. Needs more upper-body development. Needs to be assessed versus better competition. Might be better at 340.
Projection
Priority UDFA at worst, who could sneak into the tail end of the draft if the word gets out.

With the 223rd pick in the 2011 NFL Mock Draft, the Carolina Panthers select...

WR Dane Sanzenbacher, Ohio State

Ht: 5'11
Wt: 185
40: 4.52


Strengths: Superb concentration to catch the ball in traffic. Finds a way to bring the ball in even if he doesn't snatch it with his hands. Has quick feet and can beat defenders with head and body fakes. Good awareness as a route-runner and knows how to find the soft spots in the defense. Gets upfield quickly after the catch. Can spin out of tackles. Has good awareness of where the defenders are and can avoid contact after the reception. Intelligent player and seems to be in the right place at the right time. Has good pre-snap awareness and calls out blitzing corners for the offensive linemen.

Weaknesses: Slow to accelerate off the line. Has poor straight-line speed and takes a false step off of the snap. Undersized and offers very little ability to win on jump balls. Easily outmuscled for the ball by strong defensive backs. Catches with his body and fails to adjust to off-the-mark throws. Not very aggressive at the line and prefers to run around defenders. Lacks creativity trying to gain separation and performs the same type of body movement on most routes. Tends to round routes and really lacks explosion in and out of his breaks. Carries the ball loosely as a runner. Terribly ineffective as a pass blocker. Very passive and prefers not to get into the mix and be physical. Not an effective cut blocker. Is more of a pesky blocker; doesn't drive defenders back.


Pick made at 3:17 PM MST

With the 226th pick in 2011 OM Nfl Draft, THE New Orleans Saints, select:

Adrian Moten, OLB, Univ. of Maryland

Height: 6-1⅝ | Weight: 228 | 40-Time: 4.62



Positives: Has good straight-line speed, plays even faster than timed speed indicates... Is very tough for only carrying 228 lbs., takes his shots but keeps playing hard... Has very good instincts in run coverage, times up snap counts well when run blitzing... Is very athletic for the position, appears to have excellent leaping ability and good quickness.... Has a very high motor, does not give up on plays, even after getting knocked down by blockers... Good sideline-to-sideline defender, will get knocked around a bit, but has good lateral quickness and speed to cover a lot of ground... Might be best suited to play weakside linebacker in the NFL, has good range and can cover a lot of ground, makes a lot of plays from the backside... Has a good feel for the flow of the play, does a good job reading keys and moving with the play... Plays very big when taking on blockers, uses a lot of leverage to push back blockers and stay active in the play... Above-average zone defender, has six career interceptions, four of which came in 2010, does a good job of maintaining responsibilities and reading the quarterback's eyes.

pick made @ 10:18 mtn time

With the 228th (227th) pick The Philadelphia Eagles select:
Byron Stingily, OT, Louisville
6'5", 313lb



Positives: Excellent size, length and athleticism for the left tackle spot. Smooth kick-slide, also has wide base and natural bend for pass protection. Keeps leverage, moves his feet while engaged. Protects inside lane with length and balance. Latches onto defenders and does not let go. Owns feet, strength to block down and pick up outside twist. Flashes some nastiness, willing to punch multiple times to keep rusher at bay. Good quickness out of three-point stance, gets hands onto target and takes them out of the play with leverage and churning legs. Moves to second level well, negates and dominates linebackers.

Negatives: Raw in pass protection techniques, allows defenders too far into his body instead of extending his long arms. Loses balance at times coming out of three-point stance. Tries to punch instead of getting position to seal inside on runs away from him. Overextends on initial punch in pass pro, but usually recovers quickly. Misses targets in space when failing to keep athletic position. Must learn to seal edge on runs to his side. Loses snap count on occasion.cbssports.com

Due to a missed pick and the fact their owner hasn't been on the Mane for 12 days.

The Tampa Bay Bucs select at pick 7-220

Bilal Powell RB Louisville




Overview
In both high school and college, Powell was slotted at cornerback before offensive coaches decided to use his speed to tote the ball. He earned second-team All-Florida honors as a senior running back (1,960 yards, 26 touchdowns), and later was named first-team All-Big East as a senior back for the Cardinals with 1,405 yards and 11 scores.

Those outstanding 2010 numbers easily surpassed Powell's career totals over the previous three seasons (207-933-8). He was sparingly used as a true freshman, receiving 24 carries in eight games but averaging 7.8 yards per attempt and scoring twice.

Coaches more than tripled his touches in 2008, so he gained 354 yards and had two touchdowns. As a junior, his 108 carries only went for 392 yards (3.8 per carry) but he did get into the end zone four times. Though he hasn't been used a lot as a receiver, Powell also had 45 career receptions for 344 yards and three scores.

Powell grew up in a rough neighborhood before asking to stay with the family of his high school running back coach. Scouts are usually cautious when watching one-year stars like Powell, but his character, compact build and burst in the open field could entice a team to pick him in the top half of the draft.

Analysis
Strengths: Power runner with good thickness in the upper and lower bodies. Runs with good lean to get through arm tackles, or even run over smaller defenders. Jumps over would-be tacklers. Looks like a bull, and often runs like one, but can also slide through traffic inside with cuts and fair vision. Fair foot quickness for his size. Nice burst past the line if hole is evident, and strong running makes him difficult to bring down. Capable of bouncing or spinning off defenders and keeping his balance to keep moving. Will churn his legs to push pile forward. Displays a better burst than expected given his build, especially when going North-South, but is not quick enough to get the edge on his own. Adequate hands when catching passes in the flat, can turn upfield and accelerate quickly. Tough for corners to bring down one-on-one. No character concerns since arriving at Louisville.

Weaknesses: Gets sideways too often; will not be able to elude NFL defenders in the backfield. Can run a bit out of control, with limbs flailing instead of his normal in-tight, ball-high stance to prevent fumbles. Only adequate cut-back vision, sometimes making defenders miss with a quick cut inside but often running into traffic when an open lane is available. Active pass protector, looking in multiple gaps to find late blitzers; lowers shoulder and leans, however, whiffing instead of taking on defenders square-on and moving his feet.

This is a missed pick so the Lions remain on the clock.

Default With their final pick in the 2011 NFL Draft...

the Jacksonville Jaguars select WR, Stephen Burton, from West Texas A&M.

West Texas A&M Pro day: West Texas A&M might not have the biggest name draw, but the university has produced NFL talent of late. In 2010, Bears OT J'Marcus Webb went from seventh-round pick to starting 12 games for the Bears. The Rams used a sixth-round choice on DE Eugene Sims last year and on QB Keith Null, who is now with the Panthers, in 2009. This time around, it appears WR Stephen Burton could be the one to hear his named called. He was impressive during a positional workout with 15 teams in attendance, but it was his outstanding time in the 10-yard split in the 40-yard dash that really stood out. He had a time of 1.46 seconds, which speaks to his quickness as a player and could help him go as high as late in the third round. Burton (6-foot-1 3/8, 224 pounds) had a 40 time of 4.38 and 4.44 seconds. He also turned in a 35-inch vertical and 10-4 broad jump to go with 19 reps on the bench. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

Allright then, I will!

With the 232nd pick in the OM Mock Draft, the the Pittsburgh Steelers are overjoyed to draft:

Nick Bellore, ILB, Central Michigan


Player bio from CBS Sports:

Overview
Bellore is not the biggest, and definitely not the fastest, linebacker in the draft. But not many pro prospects have been as consistently productive (472 career tackles) as this Central Michigan product. Bellore immediately asserted himself as the team's best option inside, starting all 14 games as a freshman and setting a first-year record with 102 tackles. As a sophomore co-captain, he was the team's Defensive Player of the Year and a first-team All-MAC selection, a trend that continued throughout his career. He notched three straight 100-tackle seasons and started his first 51 games, another team record, before lingering ankle issues ended that streak in 2010.

He will not wow scouts with measurables, and his frame appears to be maxed out, but Bellore is a hard-working, relentless tackle machine and leaves CMU as the school's third all-time tackler with 472. His lack of speed and range makes him a poor fit as the only linebacker in the middle, but his high-motor and outstanding effort could earn him a few late looks as an inside 'backer in a 3-4 system and promising special teams player.

Analysis
Strengths:
High-effort, high-motor player who seeks contact and works to the whistle. Possesses great instincts and diagnoses plays quickly. Has a nose for the football and seeks the ballcarrier out in traffic. Extremely productive and is an underrated straight-line athlete. Solidly built and steps up to fill the hole with nice leverage and balance. Has enough of a base and displays the lower-body strength to hold up at the point of attack. Flashes adequate awareness in zone coverage.

Weaknesses: Undersized and carries a maxed-out frame. Does not break down and wrap up in the open field and often has to dive at the ballcarrier's feet. Lunges and misses when attempting to make tackles away from his frame. Is a below-average athlete who won't be able to run sideline-to-sideline with NFL backs. He lacks the speed to recover once beaten and will overcompensate, losing his balance when changing direction. Chops his feet and wastes a step attempting to break on the ball. Lacks tenacity as a blitzer and gets caught in the fray at the line. Allows blockers to get into his body and will not use his hands to disengage.

Career Notes
Started first 51 consecutive games of his career … second longest streak in school history … started 52 games in his career, which is tied for the most in school history … ranks third in CMU history with 472 total tackles … 24 career 10-tackle games … three consecutive 100-tackle season … just the sixth player in CMU history to earn All-MAC first team honors in three different seasons … selected to play in 2011 East-West Shrine Game.

2009 Season: All-MAC first team selection … co-captain … named CMU's Defensive Player of the Year … led the team in total tackles and tackles for loss … named MAC West Division Defensive Player of the Week after tallying 10 tackles, including two tackles for loss and a sack, against Eastern Michigan (10/10) … made a season-high 15 tackles at Buffalo (10/3) … credited with 13 tackles and a forced fumble at Bowling Green (10/24) … tallied 12 tackles, including two sacks, and returned an interception 50 yards to set up a touchdown at Western Michigan (10/17) … totaled 10 tackles, including two tackles for loss, and forced a fumble at Arizona (9/5) … made 10 tackles and intercepted a pass against Toledo (11/11) … made 14 tackles, including two for a loss of yardage, in the GMAC Bowl (1/6).

2008 Season: Co-captain … All-MAC first team selection … named CMU's defensive player of the year and most valuable linebacker … led the MAC and ranked fourth nationally with 11.4 tackles per game … collected at least 11 tackles in 10 games … matched a career high with 16 stops against both Eastern Illinois (8/28) and Eastern Michigan (11/28) … collected 11 tackles and forced two fumbles in win at Ohio (9/13) … second forced fumble at Ohio occurred at the CMU 1-yard line and resulted in a touchback with 3:09 remaining … tallied 14 tackles against Buffalo (9/27) … made 13 stops against both Western Michigan (10/18) and Toledo (10/25) … made 13 tackles and recovered a fumble in the Motor City Bowl (12/26).

With the 237th pick The Philadelphia Eagles select:
Mike Mohamed, LB, Cal
6'3", 239lb




Overview:Mohamed is a hard-worker who will maximize his natural tools on the field. Will come into your franchise, understand your defensive system, provide some instant linebacker depth, and contribute on special teams. However, he lacks the power to be a true force in the box against the run and the speed and range to make plays on the outside or mirror explosive space players in man coverage. Probably just not enough physical tools to work with to become an NFL starter, but still a late-round prospect who will bring some impressive instincts and great character to a locker room. -nfl.com

He will tell us all about them soon!

ERIC HAGG - S - Nebraska (6'2 - 210lbs)
Not the best Safety in the draft and not the best CB in the draft but there are quite a few football guys who have said he's maybe the best overall secondary player in the draft. Eric's real value comes from his versatility on the field. Probably will get used mostly on Special Teams in the NFL at first but can be a guy who you can plug in at S or CB, possibly allowing a team to shed a backup position in the secondary so it could be used for another position.




RYAN WINTERSWYK - DE - Boise State (6'4 - 270lbs)
Lifted 225 pounds 22 times at his pro day. Doesn't have the great 1st step some of the elite DE's do but he is athletic, strong and shows he is willing to do whatever it takes to succeed in the NFL. Even working out in TE drills. The Falcons like his high motor and toughness. Could be turned into a nice blocking TE who has the athletic ability to run some routes.

Very good anchor... Occupies double teams well... Clogs the middle... Space eater... Can stack and shed reasonably well... Does a solid job pursuing the ball... Solid drops in coverage... Works hard... Competitive... Three year starter... 3-4 NT potential, nice sleeper prospect.

Negatives: Not a pass rusher... Not real explosive... Slow foot speed... Squatty... Top heavy... Overruns too many plays... Gets too far upfield... Can be pushed away from the action... Lowers his head... Plays too high... Marginal change of direction agility... Not real instinctive... Marginal awareness... Has trouble locating the football... Inconsistent... Doesn't always give the best effort.

With pick 7-238

Tampa Bay select Maurice Hurt OL Florida




Overview
Hurt's career looked to be taking off when he worked his way into the Gators' offensive line rotation in three games as the first guard off the bench in 2006. But he struggled to nail down a consistent starting spot through his career due to myriad injuries, including damage to cartilage in his right knee during his freshman season and a neck ailment as a sophomore.

As a junior, Hurt finally stayed healthy, starting five games and playing in 13 as an integral part of Florida's Sugar Bowl winning team. His success continued in 2010, even though the team's dropped off severely. Hurt saw first-team time at right tackle, right guard and left guard, starting every contest until the Florida State loss and picking up accolades for his performances against Kentucky, Tennessee and South Florida along the way.

Although he does not possess elite size or athleticism, Hurt spent his time in Gainesville as a vital utility man capable of filling in at multiple spots along the line. He will need to duplicate that versatility if he wants to stick around at the next level as a late pick or free agent because he does not excel in any one area of the game and always will be limited by his physical shortcomings.

Analysis
Positives: Thickly built and has a strong frame without much unnecessary weight. Gets out of his stance quickly with a sharp first step and explodes into defenders. Possesses some natural knee bend. Moves well for a guy his size and can reach blocks away from his frame. Does a solid job of engaging targets at the second level and works to stay on his man through the play. Tough player who looks for contact inside and is athletic enough to get around and seal the edge.

Negatives: Only average length means he struggles to keep defenders away from his frame. Does not place his hands on his defender correctly, thus finding it difficult to recover. Comes out of his stance high and does not get under defensive linemen, failing to gain initial leverage. Plays on his heels and lets opponents take control and drive him backwards. Pushed into the backfield by effective bull rushers. Finds himself on the ground all too often, does not keep his balance when moving laterally. Struggles to finish plays and gets lost when facing uncommon pressure looks from defenses. Neck and knee ailments caused him to miss time early in his career.

Missed pick made, clock as it is.
