I think Haynes has potential. I posted a thread about him a couple of days ago. I liked bryant but he was getting long in tooth.
I thought being able to slide Lyman, Kuale, and BRANCH to the practice squad was either good fortune, guile, or both.

2003 draft review
Notes: Father was in the military, and Haynes grew up in Panama, where he played soccer, volleyball and prep football. Redshirted as a fullback in 1998. Moved to the defensive line and backed up Courtney Brown at end in '99. Shared time and started two games in 2000. Started all but one game in '01 and led the team in sacks, but all it took was four. Had six tackles, one tackle for loss and half a sack in '99; 31-7-6 in 2000; and 41-11-4 in '01. Started all 13 games in '02, recording 80-23-15 with four passes broken up, one fumble recovery and seven forced fumbles.
Positives: Great quickness and movement rushing the passer. Good athletic ability and can shed on the move. Natural rusher. Above-average athlete with good movement skills. Flashes pass-rush ability. Has enough speed and playmaking ability. Makes plays.
Negatives: Does not have great power to beat first move and is not that fast. Has to improve at the point of attack against the run. Footwork improved in the last year-plus, but can get better. Lacks rare closing speed. Knows how to find the ball but could be better anticipating and adjusting.
Summary: Haynes' stock went up during his senior season and spiked further at the Senior Bowl. Has a chance to be a top-15 pick but has certain first-round talent.

Position: Offensive Tackle
Hometown: Rumson, N.J.
Positives: Has a large, thick frame with good overall muscle development, but could stand to lose some body fat ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Has thick arms, broad chest and shoulders, softness around the midsection, good bubble and outstanding leg thickness ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Easily retains plays ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Strong at the point of attack and shows good feet working near the line ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Does a good job of sealing off and turning his man when working the corner ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Hard to bring down thanks to his wide base, and while he may not move as well in the open, he has enough speed to get to the corner to neutralize the edge rusher ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Shows good balance and will punch with authority ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Plays with some nastiness and will look to finish blocks ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Displays good knee bend and shows awareness to help inside on stunts or twists ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Generates good pop on contact with his strong hands ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Has the ability to pull and keep his feet on the move, which could see him shift to guard ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Despite his size, he shows good acceleration getting to the second level and adjusting to the linebacker's movement while keeping his feet ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Has a very strong anchor with good kick-slide agility and the foot quickness to mirror in pass protection ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Has the quickness to recover when beaten ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Can explode into his blocks and knows how to use his size and strength to move defenders out ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Very competitive and will play hurt.
Negatives: Has had a running battle controlling his weight, which causes him to get "dead legs" when having to move into the second level late in games ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Solid, durable prospect, but is not the type that will excel in one area ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Needs to improve his lower-body strength to be capable of working effectively on the move ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Can generate a very strong hand punch, but tends to get a little too wide with his hands, which lets defenders get into his chest to rock him back ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ His lack of foot speed could see him shift to right tackle at the pro level, but his solid pulling ability also makes him a guard candidate ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Will struggle at times against a good edge rush, but does flash some quickness to run his feet and wash the defender by the quarterback ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Has the tools to be a solid blocker, but he needs to improve his foot quickness ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ When run blocking, he fails to show his power sometimes, getting overextended as he lunges to make the play ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Waist bender with good tenacity as a pass protector, but when he exposes his chest, he can be neutralized and thrown to the side ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ Slow out of his stance at times and this causes him to fail to gain initial advantage.
5.25 in the 40-yard dash ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ 400-pound bench press ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ 560-pound squat ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ 21 percent body fat ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ 34ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â¾-inch arm length ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ 10-inch hands

Haynes and our corners are very good additions along with Petteti
Now we need to go get Jacobs off of the Steelers PS
And Danny Clark, and C.Vaughn or Biesel

School: East Carolina
Ht., Wt.: 6'0, 208
40 Time: 4.56
BIO: Second-team all-conference selection as a senior after catching 87/897/2. Junior totals were 30/395/0, after 13/204/0 the prior season when he spent time at H-back. Used to return punts throughout college.
POSITIVES: Durable receiver prospect with terrific size-speed numbers. Uses the sidelines well, settles into the open spot on the field then extends his hands to catch the pass away from his frame. Quickly releases off the line, not afraid to go over the middle and makes the difficult reception in traffic. Works hard, competitive and leads by example on the football field. Quick-footed running after the catch and displays a burst as well as open-field speed if given the slightest bit of room to run.
NEGATIVES: Does not play to his timed speed or consistently stretch the defense as one would think. Has a sturdy frame yet tends to hear footsteps or gathers into receptions if he's going to get hit. Loses out in battles more times than he should.
ANALYSIS: Though not meeting expectations placed upon him, Copper has shown a steady line of progress in college. Displayed solid signs during his senior campaign then went on to have a good week of practice and impress scouts at the Blue-Gray game. Could fit into the late rounds and end up being a team's fifth receiver.
