This is why i look at players like

Jalen Ramsey, Florida State
Desmond King Iowa - returning to Iowa
Eric Murray Minnesota


May not be highlight reel players but they are tried and true tested top notch all around players without a long laundry list of nagging injuries.

Re: 2016 NFL Draft Prospect Thread ...............

So, DE Kevin Dodd from Clemson declared for the draft today. Probably a late 2nd to 3rd round pick at this point I think. I wouldn't mind targeting him in that range. The more I've seen the more I wonder why Lawson gets all the credit. I watched him for most of the game the other night (wasn't exactly hard to do) and he played balls out all night long. Ideally I would love to see one of the top OLB's in the 1st and then getting him in the 2nd or 3rd. Could work wonders for our..... gosh what's that thing called? A lot of other teams have one and we never seem to... oh yeah, pass rush.

The way Dodd had played, I'd be shocked he was taking in the top 50...

The Mel speaks...

Mel Kiper releases his first mock draft for 2016 - NFL

12. New Orleans Saints

*A'Shawn Robinson, DL, Alabama

The Saints really need to add another versatile defensive lineman, and Robinson fits the bill. In fact, the 6-foot-3, 313-pounder is an immediate starter who combines great awareness and strength to make plays and hold the point in the run game, as well as the ability to push the pocket. There isn't a place where the Saints can go wrong adding talent on defense.

Senior Bowl week (January 25-30)

Five Names to Know—Senior Bowl Offense Edition

5. No. 22 RB Aaron Green, TCU

A true three-down back with excellent hands and route-running skills, Aaron Green has the tools to impress on the field in Mobile thanks to his pass-catching chops and quick running style. He's a poor man's version of Ameer Abdullah.

4. No. 9 WR Jordan Payton, UCLA

Jordan Payton had a great season at UCLA (78 catches, 1,106 yards, 5 TDs) with Josh Rosen at quarterback, and at 6'1" and a solid 212 pounds, Payton has the body and speed to catch the eye of scouts in one-on-one drills against Senior Bowl cornerbacks.

3. No. 89 TE Jerell Adams, South Carolina

Adams has talent, and could have a Clive Walford-like week in Mobile where he overcomes his college scheme to make plays on a big stage.

2. No. 55 G Cody Whitehair, Kansas State

Whitehair is the top-ranked offensive lineman accepting an invite to Mobile, and he has a chance to be a legit top-20 pick in this year’s class. A left tackle at Kansas State, he looks like a future All-Pro at guard.

1. No. 78 T Cole Toner, Harvard

I’ve written about Toner before, and even though he’s listed at tackle, I think his best pro position is center (a la Mitch Morse). A good week can push him into Day 2 of the draft.

But First
The 2016 East-West Shrine Game, Saturday, Jan. 23 at 4 p.m. ET.

The cream of the crop for mid round and late round players will be on display

then there are the select few that will jump into the lime light and head to the Senior Bowl for another round of the NFL pre draft beauty show.

As most know WR Tajae Sharpe, UMass leads my list as players to watch

Anthony Zettel
Michael Jordan

just to name a few.
