sirhcyennke81 will be on soon to tell you all about him.
Ht: 6'0
Wt: 205
40: 4.57
225: 14

Tarrant's career at Georgia Tech did not get off to a great start. After his redshirt freshman season, he was accused of sexual assault and was suspended for the entire 2008 season. The charges were dropped eventually, however, and Tarrant had two productive seasons for the Yellow Jackets' secondary.

Tarrant started 10 times and played 14 games at cornerback in 2009. He was credited with 58 tackles, 1.5 for loss, two interceptions and six pass breakups; he also returned 21 punts for 281 yards and two scores. Tarrant moved to free safety as a junior, making 55 tackles, 2.5 for loss, forcing three fumbles, intercepting three passes, and breaking up two others. He only managed 131 yards on 20 punt returns in 2010.

NFL teams like versatile defensive backs, and Tarrant has experience as a starter both outside and in deep coverage. He'll need to soothe scouts' character concerns, but if he does, it is expected teams will take a chance on his athleticism in the top half of the draft.

Positives: Good size and length for free safety. Also has excellent straight-line speed to attack in run support and blitz the passer. Stays with receivers and tight ends in man coverage, often taking away primary reads. Played a lot of two-deep coverage at Georgia Tech. Takes on receiver blocks, patiently waits to shed until he knows the direction of the play. Adds himself to piles to prevent forward push. Nice recovery speed to the sideline when caught inside. Jumps routes, capable of making the interception and take it to the end zone. Goes for the strip if teammates have ballcarrier tied up. Solid hands as a punt returner; effective when running straight ahead after the catch.

Negatives: Will be considered a corner/safety 'tweener by some teams because he is not the strongest safety or most fluid corner. Must shed with violent hands to grab ballcarriers running into his area. Lacks strength to arm tackle ballcarriers and leaves his feet too often on open-field tackles. Learning the safety position, gets caught looking at underneath routes instead of staying deeper than the deepest. Dances and takes small steps at times as a punt returner. Scouts will ask about the June 2008 rape allegation.


Carolina's last pick...thank God...

Aldrick Robinson, WR, SMU

Height: 5-9⅝ | Weight: 184 | 40-Time: 4.45



Positives: Extremely fast, a true home run threat... Great leaper, had a 40" vertical at the combine... Very quick feet, tremendous lateral agility when the ball is in hands... Good route runner, works the middle of the field well, likely a slot receiver candidate... Has added value as a return specialist... Productive and consistent, had a touchdown catch in 11 of SMU's last 12 games in 2010... Dangerous player down the field, averaged 20.0 yards per catch in 2010... Former teammate Emmanuel Sanders transitioned well to the NFL.

With pick 246, the Bengals select Chris White, MLB, Mississippi State

6'3" 244


White spent two years at junior college before transferring to Mississippi, where he had an immediate and lasting impact. He was a starter from start to finish for the Bulldogs and did not disappoint. As a senior this season he led the team in total tackles with 110 and solos with 56. He also led the way with 15.5 tackles for loss and six sacks while also recording two interceptions and a fumble recovery.

Having lined up at the middle linebacker position, White projects to stay there at the next level. He has good size (6'3'' and 244 pounds) for an MLB and probably is not fast enough to play outside. He was once clocked in the 4.5s in the 40-yard dash, but he generally runs in the 4.6s or 4.7s. He will likely have to step it up in the speed department if he wants to have a serious impact on Sundays. White is not a freakish athlete like plenty of NFL players, but he can make up for some of that with his endless motor.

White was not really on NFL radar screens prior to this season, but he did a lot to change that. Thanks to his incredible 2010 campaign, White might have played his way into becoming a late-round selection.

With the 247th pick in the Orangemane draft, Your Denver Broncos select Akeem Dent, LB Georgia Bulldogs.

6'-1" 233 lbs


Positives: Extremely productive senior season in 2010, Georgia’s leading tackler with 125 tackles while adding 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles… Has a stout frame and a strong lower body… Has a consistent motor, does not give up on plays until after the whistle is blown… Is a very hard worker and good leader, defensive teammates look up to him for his good work ethic and desire to make plays… Stepped up to a challenge from new inside linebacker coach Warren Bellin to be the leading tackler on the team this season, shows willingness to be a coachable player and to get better every year.

pick was made at 11:59am MST, 10:59am PST

With our final pick of the OM Mock Draft, the Arizona Cardinals select:



Ryan Whalen, WR, Stanford

As you can see, he reminds me of Eddie McCaffrey, he's also a "great route runner", a "worker", a tough guy, a "lunch pail" guy, has "a lot of heart", and every other cliche you can possibly assign to white skill position players

With the 251st pick in the draft the Tennessee Titans select Anthony Allen, RB, Georgia Tech.

6'0" 225lbs



Big, thick frame with powerful lower body. Strong initial burst through the line, maintaining low center of gravity and secure cradle. Powerful back who keeps his legs moving and displays great balance on contact. Able to maintain his footing when spun around by defenders, even if it means running backward or sideways to continue forward progress. Keeps his weight forward to generate downhill momentum. Never fumbled in four college seasons. Primarily a power back, but flashes adequate cutback and change of direction ability in the open field for his size.

This pick works perfectly for a team without a true power back.

With their last pick in the 2011 Orange Mane Mock Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select:
Photobucket


HENRY HYNOSKI, FB, PITT
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
257 lbs.
Arm Length:
31 3/8 in.
Hand Size:
9 5/8 in.

Overview

Hynoski came to Pitt as a star high school running back, eclipsing 7,000 yards at Southern Columbia Area High School. His build and physicality made him a perfect fit at fullback; the position his father, Henry, Sr, played at Temple, then one season in the NFL before injuries ended his career.

Hynoski's first two years at Pitt were non-descript, first sitting out the 2007 season to redshirt then playing five games on special teams with one carry for three yards against Navy. Coaches started using his skills a bit more his sophomore year, as he ran the ball 24 times for 107 yards and a score, while also catching 15 passes for 109 yards. He was used more as a receiver (25-174-1) than a rusher (12-33) in 2010.

At Pitt, he bruiser's main job was to block for backs Dion Lewis and Ray Graham. And when heading straight into defenders and paying attention to his knee-bend, Hynoski can be devastating. He'll need to be more consistent in those areas if one of the teams still using lead blockers expect him to be a long-time contributor as a fifth or sixth round pick.

Seattle selects sledgehammer Allen Bradford, RB, USC with their final pick.

Seattle's GM was drunk in a gutter. Apologies for the tardiness of this selection.

The 9ers last selection:

Zane Taylor, C, Utah

Utah center Zane Taylor bench pressed 225 pounds 41 times during his campus Pro Day workout today, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

The 6-foot-3 All-Mountain West Conference selection weighed in at 308 pounds.

He registered a 26 1/2 inch vertical leap, a 5.41 in the 40-yard dash and a 7.94 in the three-cone drill., improving on all of his NFL scouting combine numbers. He did eight more reps today than he did at the combine. The 6-foot-2, 310-pound Taylor is one of the stronger players at his position, having totaled 41 reps on the bench press. He started 39 games at center for Utah and is considered a Day 3 selection (fourth- seventh rounds).

The workout was attended by 27 NFL teams, including New England Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia and New York Jets offensive line coach Bill Callahan as well as Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks' offensive line coaches.

Per our source, Taylor excelled in an intense positional drill session that went on for an hour.

Texans last pick of the draft.

Texans are happy to select D'Aundre Reed OLB from the Arizona Wildcats.



Reed brings a lot of versatility to the table but lacks the athleticism to become a starter.. Could turn into a back up run-stopping defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker for a team that stresses gap-integrity. Does a good job against the run, coming off the ball, keeping blockers off his body, and maintaining outside contain but struggles against bigger tackles, with misdirection, and won't make a ton of plays from the backside or in space. Currently does not offer much as a pass rusher but could develop into an adequate power rusher with some more moves and technical refinement.

With the final pick of the 2011 NFL draft the Tennessee Titans selection AKA Mr Irrelevant is

DeAndre Brown, WR, Southern Miss
Height: 6-6. Weight: 233

Looks the part. Flashes a strider's speed and strong hands. Shows relatively quick feet for his size on stutter routes and on out-cuts. Good shoulder shimmy to get free on the skinny post. Nice red-zone target. Works himself open when his quarterback is scrambling, either coming back to the ball or releasing deep. Height and vertical give him a chance to win any jump ball and he uses his length to separate. Tracks the ball over his shoulder.

A bit of a reach, in that he hasn't lived up to his potential shown his freshmen year, but the size, strength and flashes of ability have been shown.
