NFL Draft – Big Board & Complete Position Rankings
Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports
25.) WR Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt – Might be the most underrated player in draft. Tall (6’3), strong (21 reps), fast (4.47), great hands, crisp route-runner, smart, SEC’s all-time leading receiver (262 catches).
26.) CB Kyle Fuller, Virginia Tech – Solid all-around CB, lack of elite speed only thing keeping him out of top 15.
27.) CB Jason Verrett, TCU – Would be in the top 15 if he were 2-3 inches taller.
28.) WR Odell Beckham, LSU – Exciting prospect with no obvious flaws, but small.
29.) WR Marquis Lee, USC – 2013 game tape was mediocre, but 2012 tape is amazing.
30.) OT Zach Martin, Notre Dame – Powerful, well-rounder blocker but is a little short and might be better off at guard.
31.) OG Xavier Su’a-Filo, UCLA – Best guard in the draft by a wide margin (if Martin stays at tackle).
32.) WR Brandon Cooks, Oregon St – Elusive, explosive player with great hands but undersized and struggled with press coverage in college. It’s not going to get any easier in the pros.
33.) QB Zach Mettenberger, LSU – Biggest arm in the draft, great size and throws a catchable ball. Lack of mobility and injury history are a concern, but has massive upside in the right scheme.
34.) WR Allen Robinson, Penn St – His 4.47 40-time at his pro day answered the only question I had. Solid possession receiver with underrated quickness and serious YAC potential.
32.) DE Stephen Tuitt, Notre Dame – Top 10 pick based on 2012 game tape. Late 2nd rounder based on 2013 game tape. Splitting the difference.
Just missed: QB Derek Carr, CB Bradley Roby, LB Kyle Van Noy
