Derrick Locke, Kentucky 5082 188 4.40

Three-year starter. A compact and confident runner who lacks size but runs between the tackles. A third down back with speed and an upfield burst. Will drop his shoulder and run through a corner at times. Explosive with quickness and agility in traffic. Natural hands and acceleration to run after catch. A nifty footed back with good vision and shake and bake moves. Dangerous in space. Rushed for over 100 yards in five games and caught 100 yards in passes in another. Has some Dexter McCluster qualities. Came to Kentucky as a track athlete and went out for football. Was the AAA player of the year in Oklahoma. Will contribute on special teams coverage.

Cedric Thornton, Southern Arkansas 6035 309 5.26

Started 22 games in his career. A physical player who gives a good effort and pushes the pocket in the passing game. Disruptive in his play. Sudden first step quickness. Needs to improve his pass rushing technique and improve his hand use, but has the strength to knock an offensive lineman off balance. Did not look out of place at the Senior Bowl. Numbers dropped off in 2010 but has been productive for the past two years. Question instincts and recognition at times. Could see the play develop at this level but will need to digest quicker on Sundays. Aggressive in his play with his long arms and big hands. A developmental player who has measurables but will need to elevate his position skill level.
