CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes that "there hasn't been a back" with Georgia junior RB Todd Gurley's "talent available the past two years."

In his Georgia preview, Rang became approximately the 1,000th analyst to compare Gurley to Seattle's Marshawn Lynch. "Like Lynch, Gurley is best known for simply bowling over defenders, but each back's success is also a testament to good vision, surprisingly light feet and balance to bounce off would-be tacklers," Rang wrote. "Gurley accelerates quickly when he has an opening, ruining angles from oncoming defenders and frequently grinding extra yardage after contact by falling forward. Gurley has soft, natural hands out of the backfield and is a willing, cognizant blocker in pass protection." Gurley couldn't stay healthy last year, making it doubly important for him to do so this year. If he can, there's a chance the 6-foot-1, 232-pound bruiser with top-notch speed could Beast Mode his way into the first round.

Eagles selected LSU DB Jalen Mills with the No. 233 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft

Mills (6'0/191) played safety and nickel back at LSU, tallying eight career tackles for loss and six interceptions across 44 starts. Although Mills ran 4.61 in Indy, he excelled in the vertical (37") and broad (10'3") jumps as well as agility tests. Mills isn't a physical box safety, but he's a fluid athlete who can hold his own in center field and drop down to cover the slot. Albeit perhaps not a true difference maker, Mills' versatility should keep him in the league as a sub-package defensive back at worst. Mills played corner at the Senior Bowl and was running routes for opposing receivers.

Cowboys selected Baylor TE Rico Gathers with the No. 217 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

A 6-foot-8, 275-pound former basketball player, Gathers is attempting the switch to tight end. He ran 4.75 at his Pro Day with a 9-foot-7 broad jump. Gathers is a developmental project for the Cowboys.

Bills selected Ohio State QB Cardale Jones with the No. 139 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Jones (6'5/253) played in 23 games at Ohio State, going 11-0 as a starter and finishing his career with a 61.9% completion rate, 8.60 YPA, and 15:7 TD-to-INT ratio. After a dominant 2014 playoff run for the Buckeyes, Jones returned to school to share time with J.T. Barrett. Although Jones was never a full-time college starter, he has a chance to become a better NFL player with a Culpepperian blend of size, athleticism, and arm strength. His deficiencies show up through inexperience-based fundamental flaws after attempting just 270 college passes. Jones' ceiling is high, but he could also flame out quickly. He's a classic boom-bust prospect.

Broncos selected Utah RB Devontae Booker with the No. 136 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Booker (5'11/219) spent two seasons at Utah after a JUCO transfer, parlaying 560 carries into 2,773 yards (4.95 YPC) and 21 TDs. Also an adept receiver, Booker caught 80 passes in just 23 games. On tape, Booker showed a sensational aptitude for making himself skinny and fitting through cracks, as well as quick feet and run-finishing ability. Concerns include Booker's small hands (8 5/8"), advanced age -- he'll be a 24-year-old rookie -- and a torn meniscus that cut his final college season three games short. Ultimately, Booker teased an NFL-starter-quality skill set at Utah and is a promising pro prospect.

Raiders selected Michigan State QB Connor Cook with the No. 100 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

This year's A.J. McCarron goes earlier than he probably should. Cook (6'4/217) made 39 starts for Sparty, posting a 34-5 record, 57.5 career completion percentage, 7.86 YPA and 71:22 TD-to-INT ratio. He tested out well in Indy, running 4.79 with a 33-inch vertical. Cook is ideally built with decent arm strength, but his accuracy is worrisome and that can be a fatal flaw. Cook was also persistently knocked for poor leadership at Michigan State, failing to earn team captain as a junior or senior. On the field, Cook profiles as a cross between Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn. He looks the part, but doesn't throw the ball straight or with touch on a consistent basis.

Texans selected Ohio State WR Braxton Miller with the No. 85 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Miller (6'1/201) spent five years at Ohio State, the first three at quarterback, the fourth as an injury redshirt recovering from shoulder surgery, and the fifth at receiver, catching 26 passes for 341 yards (13.1 YPR) and three touchdowns. An explosive athlete, Miller ran 4.5-flat at the Combine with a 10-foot-3 broad jump and elite agility scores. Miller generated a ton of buzz early in the pre-draft process, but he's a project still learning a new position. Once he grasps wideout, Miller will offer big-play ability and YAC potential in the slot. We're just not convinced he'll be able to contribute right away.

Redskins selected Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller with the No. 84 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Fuller (6'0/187) made 28 starts before a torn meniscus ended his 2015 season after just three games, tallying eight career tackles for loss, 35 pass breakups, and eight INTs. He made second-team All-ACC as a true sophomore before the lost junior year. Microfracture surgery on Fuller's right knee prevented him from working out before the draft. The younger brother of NFLers Vincent (S), Corey (WR), and Kyle (CB), Kendall is an instinctive and aggressive ballhawk when healthy, but has questionable speed and may ultimately fit best at safety. Due to his serious knee recovery, Fuller can't be expected to contribute much as a rookie.

Jets selected Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg with the No. 51 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Hackenberg (6'4/223) looked like a future No. 1 overall NFL pick under Bill O'Brien before spending the last two seasons struggling mightily in James Franklin's offense. In 2014-2015, Hackenberg completed just 54.8% of his throws with a 6.53 YPA and 28:21 TD-to-INT ratio. As a 38-game starter, Hackenberg's career record was 21-17. Although Hackenberg is a plus athlete with NFL size and arm strength, he is a scattershot ball locator with major technical flaws and absorbed 104 career sacks. Hackenberg offers growth potential -- he turned 21 in February whereas Carson Wentz will turn 24 later this year -- but he is clearly a multi-year project.

Titans selected Alabama RB Derrick Henry with the No. 45 overall pick in the 2016 Draft.

Henry earned the Heisman Trophy for the 2015 national champs, finishing his three-year career with a rushing line of 603-3,591-42 (5.96 YPC). Drawing comparisons ranging from Brandon Jacobs to Christian Okoye to Curtis Enis, Henry has immense running talent but a limited passing-game resume (17 career catches) and a lumbering style near the line of scrimmage that renders him blocking dependent. Henry is an incredible athlete for his size, running 4.54 in Indy with an absurd 10-foot-10 broad jump and 37-inch vertical. Henry also excelled as a pass blocker in Alabama's pro-style offense, routinely swallowing edge rushers.

Bills selected Alabama ILB Reggie Ragland with the No. 41 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Ragland (6'1/247) was 2015's SEC Defensive Player of the Year, moving from weak-side to middle linebacker as a senior and finishing his career with 17.5 tackles for loss, four sacks, and three forced fumbles. Ragland weighed near 260 at Alabama, but dropped 12 pounds before the Combine to run 4.72 with a 9-foot-8 broad jump. An efficient tackler with some nastiness to his game, Ragland's shortcomings are average play speed and deficient pass coverage. Ragland reminds of Rey Maualuga as a likely two-down 'Mike' who may need to leave the field in passing situations.
Apr 29 - 7:59 PM

Jaguars selected UCLA LB Myles Jack with the No. 36 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Jack (6'1/245) made 28 college starts -- 27 at linebacker and one at running back -- excelling at both positions with a 5.7 YPC average and 11 TDs on 68 career carries, and utter dominance as a three-down outside linebacker for Jim Mora II. Before Jack tore his anterior meniscus three games into his 2015 junior campaign, he showed the ability to cover backs in the flats and receivers in the slot, while laying wood on the ground and affecting games as a blitzer. Not yet of legal drinking age, Jack's rookie-year impact will be tied his knee rehab. Pre draft, Jack was able to dominate the broad (10'4") and vertical (40") jumps, but couldn't run the forty.
