With the 95th pick in the draft, the Tennessee Titans select from Oregon, LB, CASEY MATTHEWS



Two-plus-year starter is an instinctive playmaker and a passionate team leader. Almost always around the ball. Sure tackler who rarely misses. Excellent at diagnosing and getting in position to make plays. Can anchor against blocks, shed blocks and make plays off blocks. Made a lot of plays behind the line. Can run and shut off the wide rush. Has good ball skills and made plays in coverage. Top intangibles: healthy, durable, productive, football smart and from a legendary football family.

With the 99th pick in the 2011 NFL Mock Draft, the Carolina Panthers select...



Greg Salas, WR Hawaii

Ht: 6'1
Wt: 206
40: 4.56



Positives: Tall receiver with long arms and muscular physique. Catches the ball away from his body regardless of whether he's facing the quarterback or being led to the ball. Nice concentration to look the ball into his hands before turning upfield. Fearless competitor who maintains balance through contact to snatch the ball away from defenders in a crowd. Adjusts his body in mid-air to get his hands around and secure catches on balls thrown errantly to his back shoulder or behind him. Can really turn the burners on after the catch, displaying a nice second gear to pull away from defenders giving chase. Sees the whole field when running with the football, directing and anticipating blocks. Physical after the catch and able to extend plays by dragging defenders and bouncing off would-be tacklers. Knack for finding holes in zone coverage. Negatives: Mostly played from the slot in college, rarely facing press coverage. Doesn't possess a quick first step off the line, and takes a while to get up to top speed. Has the size and toughness to get physical with defenders and create space early in his routes, but seems to avoid contact and rely solely on his feet to separate. Telegraphs his routes by taking a long, delayed stride just before making a cut. Slows down into cuts, allowing defenders to recover and close on the ball. Questions as to whether or not he can effectively run assigned NFL routes, after being free to improvise quite a bit in Hawaii's hybrid Pistol/Run and Shoot offense.

Sorry for my tardiness everyone. hadn't known that the comp picks had come in yet.

The Tennessee Titans select VIRGIL GREEN TE NEVADA



Three-year starter is an excellent downfield receiver with natural hands and top ball skills. Fast and elusive, good acceleration and change of direction. Excellent body control, can configure physique to get hands on off-target throws and reel them in. Runs good routes. Snatches ball with hands away from body. Can break tackles downfield and get YAC. Athletic enough for consideration as a wideout. Decent blocker when using proper technique. Durable and productive.


With the Titans selecting their QBOTF in the first round, they have drafted a TE for him to build a relationship for years to come.

With the 101st overall pick, Seattle selects Stephen Schilling, OG, Michigan.



Seattle's OL depth is a massive question mark. This selection gives them flexibility on the interior, as well as brings a local product home.

With the 102nd pick in the OM Draft, the Buffalo Bills select:

Lee Ziemba, OT, Auburn, 6'6", 317


Auburn offensive lineman Lee Ziemba was dominant during the Senior Bowl on Saturday. Playing at right tackle, Ziemba knocked defensive ends off the ball on running plays and kept the South quarterbacks' jersey clean when they dropped back to pass. "I think I played well," Ziemba said after the South's 24-10 win. "The coaching staff did a good job of preparing us, and I just wanted to go out and execute as well as I could." Ziemba said he was glad to play in the game and felt he improved his NFL draft stock with his performance during the week in practice and in Saturday's game. Having three drop-back passers was a change of pace for Ziemba after blocking for Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton during the season. "I think I showed that I can learn quick and play with different players, you know?" Ziemba said. "I want to be able to go out and get on the field real quick, and I think this was a good experience for me." - Jason Blakeney, Pensacola News Journal

With the 103rd pick, the Bengals select Jurrell Casey, DT, USC



Overview
For much of the Pete Carroll era, the Trojans had at least one defensive lineman selected within the first 100 picks of each draft. Casey is leaving USC a year after his former head coach. Casey will very likely continue the Trojans' impressive streak.

Casey made an immediate impact as a true freshman, emerging as the team's primary backup at defensive tackle and registering 12 tackles, including two for loss and forcing a fumble. Casey won the starting defensive tackle job as a sophomore, emerging as Southern Cal's best defensive lineman as an honorable mention All-Pac-10 pick with 59 tackles, nine tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks.

Despite losing line mate Everson Griffen early to the NFL, opponents struggled to contain Casey in 2010. Posted 67 tackles, including 11 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks - leading USC defensive linemen in all three categories and earning first-team All-Pac-10, as well as USC's MVP award.

Casey is a similar prospect to former USC standout (and New Orleans' 2008 first-round pick) Sedrick Ellis but he doesn't have the same size scouts prefer. His game is built around burst off the line, strength and relentlessness. Casey isn't likely to match Ellis' high draft selection (No. 7 overall), but with a year or two to acclimate, he could enjoy a similar career.

Analysis
Pass rush: Flashes good initial quickness off the snap. Can get skinny to penetrate through the gap and is surprisingly light on his feet. Developing hand usage. Can shock the pass blocker with his initial punch and shows a variety of pass-rush moves, including an effective swim technique. Good balance and lateral agility to change direction. Pursues hard and has a legitimate late burst to close to finish plays. Good motor.

Run defense: Short, squatty defender. Tough to move off the line. Maintains his natural leverage advantage by playing low and showing very good leg drive and balance to keep his feet. Good lateral agility and balance to slide down the line of scrimmage. A bit inconsistent with his run fits. Will freelance and pick the wrong gap to attack, opening up rushing lanes. Good strength to slip off blocks and drag the ballcarrier down as he attempts to run past. Good effort laterally and downfield in pursuit.

Explosion: Flashes an initial burst off the snap. Varies his start and can stun his opponent. Good explosive punch to jar his opponent backward and gain a quick release.

Strength: Good lower-body strength to hold up to drive blocking. Has the sand in his pants to anchor, even showing the ability to hold up to the double-team. Good upper-body strength to slide off blocks and drag down runners.

Tackling: Makes most of his tackles while still engaged with a lineman, showing good upper-body strength. Surprisingly light on his feet. Can be evaded by quickness, but can hold his own in tight quarters and forces ballcarriers to elude him. Good effort laterally and downfield to make the tackle in pursuit. Good strength for the drag down tackle. Has a late burst to close and can arrive with a pop. Has three career forced fumbles.

Intangibles: Has a bowling ball body type with a thick, wide trunk and short arms and legs. Is tough to block because of his build and strength, but may have trouble disengaging against NFL blockers due to his short arms. Started at nose guard and defensive tackle. Recognized his freshman season as USC's Service Team Defensive Player of the Year for his part on the scout team. Only three years removed from his high school graduation. Turned 21 on December 5.

With the real 105th pick, The Philadelphia Eagles select:

Tyler Sash, SS, Iowa
6'0", 211 lbs.





OVERVIEW Sash brings impressive football intelligence and excellent effort in run support to the table but probably lacks the range and athleticism in coverage to become a full-time starter. However, he'll likely provide excellent depth and contribute on special teams coverage units. Can play the deep half but is a liability in centerfield or when asked to matchup with tight ends or slots in man coverage. Does possess hands when he limits separation and is around the football. Flies to the ball in run support and is a sound tackler. Coachable player who will learn your system quickly. Sash carries a mid-round grade. -nfl.com

Nice intangibles and projects to have a solid career in the NFL. Needs to work on technique and may become a starter at the NFL level, but otherwise would provide much needed depth for the Texans.

With the 110th pick in the 2011 OM Mock Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers are proud to select:

DT Lawrence Guy, Arizona State


Height: 6' 4"
Weight: 305 pounds
40 time: 4.96 seconds
Bench: 28 reps @ 225 pounds

Player biography from PFW's 2011 Draft Preview:

Notes: Highly recruited prospect out of Nevada totaled 210 tackles and 31 sacks his final two high school seasons before choosing the Sun Devils over offers from Oklahoma, Michigan and Nebraska, among others. As a true freshman in 2008, played all 12 games (started the final eight) and tallied 44 tackles, 10 10 for loss and two sacks with a 22-yard fumble recovery score. Started all 11 games in which he played in '09, recording 37-7-4 1/2 with one forced fumble. Did not play in the season opener (biceps). Started all 12 games in '10, posting 41-6-1 1/2 with two batted passes. Will be a 21-year-old rookie.

Positivies: Has ideal size and large hands. Good movement skills -- runs well for a 300-pounder. Very active -- chases plays and has good range. Flashes disruptive ability -- barges into gaps and pushes upfield to generate pressure. Versatile to play multiple spots. Experienced, three-year starter.

Negatives: Average athletic ability, eyes and instincts. Late to locate and find the ball. Gets knocked around and does not play with power or violence. Does not feel pressure and can do a better job protecting his legs. Lets his pads rise and exposes too much of his frame. Limited pass rusher. Has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and dyslexia and could take extra time wrapping his head around a complex NFL playbook. Did not interview well at the Combine.

Summary: Persevered through learning disabilities to become a functional student-atlete and has a well-proportioned NFL body with enough athletic abiliity to warrant consideration as a three-technique or five-tehnique. That said, his measureables are more intriguing than his tape; he could be a project and the finished product might not be worth the wait.



Pick made at:
7:50 p.m. ADST
11:50 a.m. EST
10:50 a.m. CST
9:50 a.m. MST

The Bills trade up to get Miami's pick (giving up their remaining fourth and sixth rounder) and select:

Jeremy Beal, LB, Oklahoma, 6'2", 262




Beal was the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and a first-team All-Big 12 pick in 2010, putting up 66 tackles, 18 for loss, 8.5 sacks, six pass breakups and three forced fumbles. Oklahoma coaches stand him up, put his hand down, and even played him in the middle in 2009 due to injuries at the position. Should he have a very average performance testing at the Scouting Combine and his pro day, NFL scouts will likely feel the same way Bob Stoops did when he saw Beal's high school game film: they will want to have the well-rounded, hard-working and intelligent player. (CBS)

"The guy is the absolute best," Stoops said. "He was again one of our players of the game. He just consistently makes plays when you need them. We stood him up and put him in a different position because of all their four-wide receiver sets. He took to it like he was out there playing cornerback. The guy can do anything."

Default with the 115th pick in the 2011 NFL draft...

the Jacksonville Jaguars select Chimdi Chekwa, CB, Ohio St.

Read & React: Reads the quarterback's eyes and reacts quickly to the ball in the air. Often involved in plays after coming off his man because he's looking into the backfield, but will also get beat when falling for pump fakes and double moves because of his aggressiveness.

Man Coverage: Has quick feet and fluid hips to stay with most receivers throughout most routes. Smooth, quick pedal when not in press-bail, patient waiting for his man to make the first move off the line. Maintains contact down the sideline, but needs to find the ball in the air more consistently. Needs to know where his help comes from on a given play -- gets in trouble playing inside position and getting beat outside. Will give up strength to many NFL receivers, who will shield him with their bodies on slant patterns and go through him on jump balls (though his vertical gives him a chance to break up those passes). Plays well off the line and in press-bail. Will mix it up just inside the five-yard mark, but does not usually get his hands on his man at the line of scrimmage, backpedaling or bailing per the team's scheme.

Zone Coverage: Could excel as a zone corner because of his toughness, change-of-direction ability and quickness to the ball. Reads routes and the eyes of the quarterback and comes off his man to pick up the underneath out route and makes a play on the ball. Able to bring down receivers quickly after the catch. Transitions well from his low, quick pedal to plant and drive. Able to knock away passes in front of the receiver or as the ball is caught because of his length and closing speed. He must prove discipline to stay in his zone until the ball is away, or quarterbacks and receivers will take advantage of the vacated area.

Closing/Recovery: Excellent closing speed to make tackles or get to the receiver while the ball is in the air. Plants and drives quickly after recognizing stop or slant routes when playing off of a receiver. Reaches in front of receivers to knock away passes without interfering, though he will commit penalties when not looking for the ball. Recovers well if receiver gets inside position downfield, using his speed to get back to the play, but is at times a step late to get back to deep balls if biting on double move. Lacks the natural hands for interceptions.

Run Support: Should be capable of chopping down running backs at the next level, but won't be a superstar in this part of his game. Gives good effort to shed receiver's blocks but is more effective using his speed and instincts to beat them. Comes on run blitzes off the edge; forces plays inside but needs to work on defeating fullback blocks with his hands to be a factor against the run.

Tackling: Is not a physically imposing cornerback, with thin legs and arms, but has the length and tenacity to wrap and drag down most receivers after the catch. Effective cut tackler against the run when he keeps his head up; will escort backs out of bounds. Puts a shoulder into receivers after the catch if playing off. Can be easily eluded in space after trying to break down; looks a bit clumsy at times approaching ballcarriers in the open field. Lack of strength and bulk might cause him issues bringing down larger NFL receivers on the outside.

Intangibles: Tough corner with the confidence to come back and make a good play after giving up a touchdown. Missed start with a left shoulder injury in October 2008 but still played in the game. Missed most of the 2011 Sugar Bowl with a broken right wrist.

In the 4th round Kaylore, JCM, and the 9ers select:

Pernell McPhee, DE, Mississippi State
Height: 6-4 | Weight: 285 | 40-Time: 4.75

The 49ers need a 5 technique guy and this is the best on the board right now. Big, athletic, team guy, and has a good motor. Won't need to stand up or make plays in space much here because Manny Lawson and Brooks Reed will be doing most of that. We are hoping McPhee can develop a few pass rush moves at the next level, it seems to be his only barrier to being a very good player.

Strengths

* Good bulk at 6'3 278 lbs - looks the part
* Strong, holds up the point of attack well
* Very active in the run game
* Smart football player - played a number of positions for the Bulldogs
* Excels with the bull rush
* A nasty, physical player who isn't afraid to put someone through the turf
* Very productive over his career - two-time All-SEC

Weaknesses

* Not a top-level pass rusher - will never lead the league in sacks (just 7 sacks past two years)
* Though he stood up a lot at Mississippi State, he doesn't possess the athleticism to take that to the next level
* Very poor in space - doesn't have the feet for it
* Needs to develop more pass rush moves
* His agility and change of direction are above average at best

And from another site...

Strengths:
• Excellent bulk with very long arms and a sturdy build
• Athletic with good playing speed and a burst to close
• Terrific strength and is stout at the point of attack
• Active with good range and does nice job in pursuit
• Tenacious, intense and competitive w/ non-stop motor
• Powerful and will jolt blockers then push them back
• Tough and plays with a nasty demeanor on the field

• Questionable intelligence, instincts and awareness
• Just two seasons of big-time Division I experience

with the 117th pick, Tampa Bay selects ILB Nate Irving, NC State.

Slightly undersized but plays like a man beast. Overcame a huge car accident to get back to top form. Watch this video:
