1/2 Bowl Games: NFL Draft Prospects to Watch

by Dave Syvertsen, Ourlads' Draft Analyst FLORIDA   *#78 OT David Sharpe – 6’6/357   True junior that hasn’t declared yet. Some are saying he’s coming out and if he does, he would have a shot at being one of the top 3 OTs.  Personally, I think he needs to go back to school.  He has two years of starting experience and he is a guy that improves monthly.  But he doesn’t need to be 357 pounds.  It slows him down and he gets beat often on double ...

12/31 Bowl Games: NFL Draft Prospects to Watch

by Dave Syvertsen, Ourlads' Draft Analyst LSU   *#15 WR Malachi Dupre – 6’4/195   Has not declared yet but there are rumors he is definitely leaving. Has led the team in catches/yards/TDs each of the past 2 years.  Has been a big play threat with easy speed and acceleration.  Looks a little weak to me, doesn’t do well when he’s getting pushed around by physical DBs.  Inconsistent hands and ball skills.  He should return to school but he has some ...

12/30 Bowl Games: NFL Draft Prospects to Watch

by Dave Syvertsen, Ourlads' Draft Analyst GEORGIA   #73 OT Greg Pyke – 6’6/323   Fifth year senior, three year starter. Has been one of the best SEC linemen over this past three year span.  Very solid all around player that could project inside or outside.  He needs to get stronger before he can be thrown out there in the NFL trenches.  Doesn’t use his lower body enough and his punch is average at best.  He can develop in to a nice, versatile backup ...

12/29 Bowl Games: NFL Draft Prospects to Watch

by Dave Syvertsen, Ourlads' Draft Analyst SOUTH FLORIDA   #87 WR Rodney Adams – 6’1/190   One of my favorite under the radar WRs in this class. Such and explosive change of direction guy that can get in and out of breaks with the best in this class.  Plus ball skills in traffic, can get up over DBs and win a lot of one on one situations.  He is on the skinny side and will struggle with physical CBs here and there.  I would love to see this guy in a ...

12/28 Bowl Games: NFL Draft Prospects to Watch

by Dave Syvertsen, Ourlads' Draft Analyst PITTSBURGH   #53 OG Dorian Johnson – 6’5/315   Fourth year senior and my top rated guard in this class. I think he will end up with a 1st round grade, near top 20 overall.  Johnson has steadily improved since last year and is now the rare combination of power and movement ability.  He was the only guard I saw all year that consistently won the battles with the Clemson defensive tackles.  That really left an ...
