Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Joyner is one of the best football players in this draft. He lacks ideal size to play in the secondary but could project as a safety or slot cornerback in the NFL. Joyner is terrific in the box or playing near the line of scrimmage. He has outstanding instincts and hits like linebacker. Joyner is one of those guys that just has a knack for making big plays. He's tough against the run and good in coverage, although he's more of a zone guy. His reminds me a lot of former Tampa Bay Buccaneer great Ronde Barber. Joyner was one of the big time catalysts on FSU's defense and their national title run, finishing with 69 tackles, seven tackles for a loss, 5.5 sacks, two interceptions, and three forced fumbles.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Ford missed the first two Auburn games of the year because of a knee injury but still earned All-SEC honors after posting impressive numbers for the Tigers defense, finishing with 29 tackles, 14.5 tackles for a loss and 10.5 sacks. He plays hard and he plays fast. Ford gets off the ball and up field very quickly. He's at his best working the edge and playing in space. Can he be a complete defensive end in the NFL or will he just be a situational pass rush specialist? Or can Ford develop his game as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme? He's an intriguing prospect because of his outstanding ability to rush the passer.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Kouandijo is an offensive tackle prospect with elite size (close to 6-7/322-pounds) and great length (35 5/8). In fact, only one [Luke Lucas] offensive lineman at the NFL combine was longer. He's raw but showed flashes at Alabama. Kouandijo needs to get stronger, learn to play with more consistency, and a little better technique. That could all come in time with continued hard work on his craft. He's still so young and has a lot of [physical] maturing to do. He's not as good as the others rated ahead of him now but his upside is there.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
What kind of 2013 season did Verrett have? He was the co-Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year. He finished the season with two interceptions and 14 pass breakups despite teams throwing away from him most of the time. The season before Verrett had six interceptions and 16 pass breakups. This kid is fast [4.38], very explosive [39" vertical, 10'8" broad jump] and has short area quickness [4.00] short shuttle. Verrett showed a great burst in his 10 yard split [1.47] at the NFL combine. Only Dri Archer [1.46] was faster. The only thing Verrett lacks is ideal size [5-9/189]. This is a smooth, athletic and ball hawking cornerback who can run and jump through the gym.

Pryor is instinctive, physical and very aggressive. He shows range against the run and in coverage.

Benjamin had a monster red-shirt sophomore season, catching 54 passes for 1,011 yards and 15 touchdowns. He's an enormous target at 6-foot-5, 240-pounds with an arm length of 34 7/8. Even at that size Benjamin ran 4.61 [forty] at the NFL Combine. Speed isn't the essence of his game, it's his size. Benjamin is physical, athletic and very hard to defend. He's terrific in the air and can create surprising separation out of his breaks. He's far from a finished product and looks like he will develop into an outstanding threat inside the red-zone.

Yankey started every game over his final three seasons for the Cardinal. During the 2012 season he played four different positions across the offensive front as well as tight end. He checked in just under 6-foot-6 at the NFL Combine and weighed 315-pounds. He has tackle size and length [34"] playing the guard position. Yankey is smart, strong and versatile. He's terrific with his run blocking and excels in pass pro as well.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Garoppolo won the Walter Payton Award given to the top player in FBS. In 14 games this past season he put up some big numbers, throwing for 5,050 yards, 53 touchdowns and only nine interceptions. Garoppolo completed 66% of his passes. He was basically a four-year starter that finished his career with 13,156 yards and 118 touchdown passes. Garoppolo has seen his stock rise since January's East/West Shrine Game and Senior Bowl. He has decent size at 6-foot-2, 226-pounds. What Garoppolo does have is a very quick release and lots of arm talent. He's smart and knows where to go with the football. Garoppolo has some athletic ability to move around in the pocket and buy some time.

Amaro earned All-American honors after posting a record setting season in which he had 106 receptions, 1,352 yards and seven touchdowns. This is a tight end with very good size (6-5/265) who runs well [4.74 forty, 4.30 short shuttle at NFL Combine]. Amaro primarily lined up flexed out or in the slot this past season at Texas Tech. He has soft hands. Amaro can be a force to exploit the middle of a defense, whether it's stretching it deep or finding holes underneath.

Tuitt is a big, long and rangy defensive end prospect that is 6-foot-5, 304-pounds and has 34 ¾ inch long arms. He's ideal for the 3-4 scheme at the five-technique. Tuitt finished his career at Notre Dame with 21.5 sacks. He was probably a hotter prospect one year ago. Nevertheless, Tuitt should be one of the top ends taken in May. He's strong (31 reps of 225 at NFL Combine), can beat blockers and find and go get the ball. He's not quite as quick or athletic as Hageman.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Easley would have easily been a top 15 pick in this draft had it not been for an ACL tear this past season. He was a first team All-SEC preseason member and on every defensive line watch list this summer. When healthy, this is a disruptive force on the inside. Easley can play the three or five technique. He has a terrific get off. Easley shows explosiveness and can make a lot of things happen behind the line of scrimmage. He's athletic and has a good motor. The big question are his knees, as he tore both his ACLs while in Gainesville. If Easley can stay healthy there's no question someone could land a high end first round talent a little later in the draft.

Matthews had a super career in Nashville, finishing as the SEC all-time leader in receptions (262) and yards (3,759). He also set another SEC record this past fall with receptions (112). Matthews also caught a school record 24 touchdown passes. He has good size at 6-foot-3, 212-pounds and posted good numbers at the NFL Combine – 4.48 [forty], 35'5" vertical jump, 10' broad jump, and 4.18 short shuttle. His combination of size, leaping ability, length (33 ¼) and hand size (10 3/8) make him tough to defend in the air. Matthews runs good routes and has soft hands. Others guys are bigger and others are faster but Matthews possesses a little bit of everything.

Roby has good size (5-11/194) and ran 4.39 [forty] at the NFL combine. He has an outstanding burst and was one of just a few prospects at combine with a sub-1.5 10 yard forty split. Roby had 1.47 and 1.50. He also ran a sizzling 4.04 short shuttle, showing his agility and lateral quickness. This is a physical and aggressive defensive back who has all the traits to be an outstanding cornerback in the NFL.

Mason was good in 2012 and sensational in 2013. This kid was Auburn's thoroughbred in their vaunted run game. Mason set a school record with 1,816 yards and 23 rushing touchdowns. He had an incredible SEC Championship Game versus Missouri, rushing for 304 yards and four scores on 46 carries. Mason performed well at NFL Combine, running a 4.5 forty. This is a back that's hard to find because he runs so low. He has incredible balance and vision and runs with deceptive power for a smaller back. Mason's quick and can start and stop on a dime and then take off.

Beckham ran a 4.43 forty at NFL Combine. He also posted a 3.94 short shuttle, 38'5" vertical jump and 10'2" broad jump. This is an explosive, tough and quick player with soft hands. Beckham's mother was a track All-American for the Tigers and his father played football for LSU.

Cooks also scored twice on the ground. He won the Biletnikoff Award and was a 1st-team All-American. This is your ideal slot wide receiver in the NFL. He possesses speed, elusiveness in space and soft hands. Cooks runs good routes and is tough to defend because of his athletic ability.

Jamie Newberg's Notes:
Richardson played in Knoxville the past three seasons and started over the last two at left tackle. He was a 2nd Team All-SEC member for 2013. Nicknamed "Tiny", there's nothing small about him. Richardson is just about 6-foot-6, 336-pounds, with 35" arms and 10 ¼" hands. For his length, Richardson is strong. He bench pressed 225-pounds 36 times at the NFL Combine. That was second most of all the offensive linemen at this event. His combination of size, power and length can be overwhelming on defenders when he has it going. Richardson needs to learn to play with better technique. But in time, he could be a very good left or right tackle on Sundays for a very long time.

Hill also caught 18 passes in 2013. This is a powerful, downhill runner with good size (6-0/233), nimble feet and pretty good athletic ability. He doesn't possess home run speed but looks like a back that could carry the load and be a workhorse on Sundays. Hill does have some off the field baggage.

Roberson has always shown the ability to drive on the ball and looks more ideal to play in a zone intensive scheme.

He tested well at Indy, running at 4.49 [forty], 4.26 short shuttle, 36.5" vertical jump, and 10'5" broad jump. This is a very physical safety that will light you up. Bucannon is solid in coverage and will need to continue to work on this area of his game.

He had the third best short shuttle time (4.44) amongst the offensive line prospects there. That's a nice time and shows his short area quickness. He's solid in both pass pro and in the run game.

Jackson was a four-year starter after red-shirting his freshman season. He is a two-time All-American and two-time All-SEC player at offensive guard. Jackson is a shade bigger than 6-foot-3, 336-pounds. He has good length (33 ¾) and strength. He bench pressed 225-pounds 30 times at the NFL Combine. That was more than most. Jackson is a mauler in the run game. He's thick and powerful, especially in the lower body. He can get off the ball quickly. Jackson is equally as good in pass pro and shows the ability to slide and stay in front of defenders.

Martin posted some pretty good numbers at the NFL Combine, running at 4.72 forty at just under 6-foot-6, 272-pounds. He also ran a 1.53 10 yard forty split. Those are two impressive numbers. Also eye popping is his 35" arm length, 35.5" vertical jump and 10'9" board jump. His best attribute is his closing speed. When he finds the football he can get there in a hurry. He' a good pass rusher with upside and does a nice job of playing/stopping the run.
