Big Draft Risers

50 posts in this topic

We all know this happens every pre-draft build up and once the teams start getting a closer look at these guys individually, players will rise on draft lists.

By looking at the draft rankings right now, you really aren't getting an accurate portrayal of what may end up happening or the order of being taken by position.

So with this in mind...name some guys maybe projected anywhere from pick 10 to the third that could legitimately rise once the combine and workouts get rolling.

A few guys that seem to be anywhere from 10-32 on some drafts right now:

Dontari Poe (Memphis-DT), Courtney Upshaw (OLB Bama), Mark Barron (S Bama), Fletcher Cox (DT-DE Miss State), Cordy Glenn (OT/OG, UGA)

2nd Rd Potential:

Trumaine Johnson (CB Montana), Brandon Mosley (OT, Auburn), Ryan Steed (CB Furman)

and a guy who I think would be a great later round backup and special teams stud: Miles Burris (OLB SD State)

*Just to note, I think Upshaw, Poe, Cox, Steed, and Trumaine in particular will be very very interesting prospects to watch and see if they can rise over the next few months.

Your turn...go!

If Barron can be an absolute beast at safety I'd be fine with picking him at 8-9. Yes thats high for a safety but if he can make big time plays for ten years Id be down.

Cordy Glenn has helped himself big time this week at the Senior Bowl. He's done well against Coples, Upshaw and Ingram so far.

He's becoming one of my more favored guys. Overall, I really do think Reiff, Poe, and Upshaw have a great chance of being drafted by us.

I would think a draft with one of those three in the first + one of the CBs (Minnifield, Gilmore, Hosley, or Trumaine, etc) in the second would be very solid.

Definitely. The nice thing about him is that if Otah goes down, he could be a very valuable replacement...but if Otah magically goes through a season uninjured, he can fill voids at guard if someone goes down or we need some fixin

Cordy Glenn is universally being looked at as OG. According to Scott Wright at the senior bowl.. he gets to listen in on all the scouts and GMs.

unfortunately guys like chris rainey and joe adams (both of whom i want later in the draft) are impressing people like crazy out there.

i was hoping that they would be able to slip to the 5th and 6th round, but it ain't going to happen.

I know he's Mountaineer but the Quick receiver from Boone is making noise. I think he has already interviewed with the Falcons.

He will stride up the board based on his size and potential alone. But the guy is fast to boot.

Yea, we would need to take one in the 4th round unfortunately.

Has anyone actually seen Poe play football?

I've not seen a Memphis game in over a year and Youtube doesn't even have any highlights.

Poe is gonna be a 3-4 nt, typically dont see a lot of highligts of them. They are the most under appreciated part of a 3-4.
