Video: Mock Draft Changes

Monday, March 25, 2013


With the intense part of free agency passing by, expect national reporters to start focusing on teams' interests in certain draft prospects. We will do our best to filter through the smoke screens and find worthwhile information connected with your favorite draftable players and teams.

But in the meantime, Kay Adams (@heykayadams) and I (@JoshNorris) ran through the latest changes to my mock draft, including two prospects who jumped up a handful of spots, and others who fell as a result.


Mock Draft Changes


Breaking sports news video. MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL highlights and more.

 

Risers:


1. DE Cornellius Carradine, FSU


Where he wins: Explosive off the snap and follows it up with strong hand use to keep separation or disengage. Plays with leverage to drive opposition back if need be or keep his position to set the edge as a run defender.


2. DL Datone Jones, UCLA


Where he wins: Shows disruption from defensive end or tackle. Outside, his initial strength on contact puts offensive linemen on skates. Inside, has burst and quickness to win off the snap. Length and pad level (when asked to pass rush) helps.


Fallers:


1. DE Bjoern Werner, FSU


Speed and burst off the edge with hand use to keep separation. Shows natural bend to work his way away from offensive tackles. Snap anticipation is very good. Athleticism to make tackles in space.


2. T Menelik Watson, FSU


Athletic mover when asked to pull out front, chases down someone to block. Obviously has strong hands, which help him recover in case waist bending or lost balance takes place. Consistently looks to extend his arms and gain hand control.
