Another one, James Davidson, DE, UTEP


This from roto:

At 6-foot-3, 235 pounds, Davidson is going to have to make it as an outside linebacker at the next level. At least he's used to positional versatility: The three-time champ in Tae Kwon Do played on every defensive level while with the Miners, starting at S, LB, and DE. He's also experienced on special teams. For those unfamiliar, the link below has an embedded tape of Davidson's work. Apr 17 - 6:22 PM

And another, Jimmy Bennett, OT, Uconn. From nfldraftscout:

08/11/13 - TOP CONNECTICUT PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 3. LT Jimmy Bennett (6-8, 306, 5.34) -- Had it not been for ACL and shoulder injuries keeping Bennett off the field for more than half of his college career, we may be talking about one of the premier tackles in the class. Considering the severity of prior injuries -- especially those to the knees -- Bennett displays surprising quickness off the snap and good straight-line speed, but he's pretty stiff in the lower half when asked to bend and absorb contact.

The range of his kick-slide is limited and lacking of fluidity, but he anticipates change-of-direction well and he takes good angles to secure the edge when initially beat at the snap. Bennett's skill-set seems to be better-suited for the right side than the left, as he seems to possess natural anchoring strength in spite of some of his lateral limitations. He'll need to bulk up and improve his technique in order to play there at the next level, though, and most importantly, he'll need to show that he can stay on the field for a second straight season now that he's been granted a 6th year of eligibility. - Derek Stephens, NFLDraftScout.com

The range of his kick-slide is limited

That's a skateboarding move, so I'm not falling for this bullshit. Although that would be a legitimate way to evaluate tackle prospects - ie, if you can crush on the vert ramp, you likely have the balance and athleticism to play tackle in the NFL. If you fail, you'll be so smashed up you won't be able to play football anyway.

Another one...Tracey Moore, WR, Oklahoma State.


08/12/13 - TOP OKLAHOMA STATE PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 4. WR Tracy Moore (6-1, 215, 4.57)...The next well-built wideout out of Oklahoma State, Moore played in only four games last season due to an ankle injury that ended his season in mid-October. He earned a medical redshirt and returns to Stillwater for another season of eligibility. Moore set career bests in 2011 with Brandon Weeden throwing him the ball, finishing with 45 catches for 672 yards and four touchdowns but should top those numbers in 2013 if he stays on the field. He looks the part with good height and build and wins with his physical demeanor and body strength to run over defenders and pick up every yard that he can. Moore isn't an easy ballcarrier to tackle and does a nice job holding onto the ball in traffic and after a big hit. He doesn't have elite top-end speed but accelerates well with good route quickness to gain separation in and out of his breaks.

The biggest concern for Moore might be his ability to stay on the field after last year's season-ending injury and some off-field issues that could be troublesome. He was cited for public intoxication in March 2012, followed by a citation for outraging public decency in June 2012 and then a third incident last August, when he was cited for providing alcohol to a minor. Based on talent, Moore has the potential to be No. 1 on this list, but character and durability concerns drop him to fourth right now. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
