Tier Four (31-40)
Kenny Britt, WR, Rutgers:
Three-year player is the Big East's all-time leader in receiving yardsâ¦ He has inconsistent hands, most likely from lack of concentrationâ¦ Works hard and is very competitiveâ¦ Should develop into a top player with the right quarterback.
Donald Brown, RB, Connecticut:
Brown was recruited by bigger schools, but they wanted him to play defensive back. Like Marshall Faulk (San Diego State), Brown chose to play RB at a smaller schoolâ¦ Ran for over 2,000 yards in 2008â¦ Has very good instinctsâ¦ Had a 41 ½-inch vertical jump at the combine.
Larry English, DE/OLB, Northern Illinois:
A four-year starter who was the first-ever player to be named MAC Defensive MVP in consecutive yearsâ¦ Very competitive and athletic enough to play in spaceâ¦ Had 18.5 sacks the past two seasonsâ¦ Plays faster than his timed speed.
Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Maryland:
Ran 4.33 at the combineâ¦ Very athletic, with long arms and rare speedâ¦ He only caught 42 passes for 5 TDs in 2008, but he needed a better QBâ¦ Catches the ball well and has lots of upside.
Evander "Ziggy" Hood, DT, Missouri:
Played as a true freshman in 2005 and started the next three yearsâ¦ Had 15.5 sacksâ¦ Strong (34 lifts at the combine) with 4.89 speed and 33 ¾-inch armsâ¦ Good numbers for a DL.
Alex Mack, C, California:
Did not work out at the combine but was outstanding at Cal's pro dayâ¦ An outstanding high school wrestler, if he gets his hands on you, you're in troubleâ¦ Very smart player who will perform at a high level for a long time.
Jamon Meredith, OT, South Carolina:
Weighs 307 poundsâ¦ Had a very good pro day workoutâ¦ Will be best in a zone blocking schemeâ¦ Can play tackle or guardâ¦ Has 4.9 speed in the 40 and long arms (34 ½ inches).
Brian Robiskie, WR, Ohio State:
Son of former NFL receiver Terry Robiskie, who is currently WR coach for the Falconsâ¦ Outstanding competitor with great handsâ¦ If you need someone to make a catch to win the Super Bowl, he is the playerâ¦ Solid player with great character.
