Marcus Wilson FB Below average height/average weight. Good thickness. As a rusher, has good vision and runs hard. Nice elusiveness in space, quick cut ability. Says he runs a sub 4.6 40… curious to see what he runs at combine and how he performs in route running.

Al Dockery QB Average height/ below average weight/lean build. Highlights are from 2018:Footwork/mechanics are inconsistent and can tighten up. Moves well, can avoid free-rushers, and made plays outside of the pocket as a runner/thrower. Has some nice touch on throws and shows ability to throw into tight windows over the middle of the filed. Inconsistent anticipation. Can get tighter w/drop-back, think he can get more power on throws from lower-half w/coaching. Given that the highlights are almost 4 years old, will have to show that he has put on size and improved as a QB overall
Bradley Foley RB Below average height/ good weight for height/good thickness in lower body. As a rusher, has good vision and runs hard. Maintains good body control to stay upright after contact and keeps pumping his legs. Nice elusiveness in space, quick cut ability. Hard to bring down.

Brendan Costa QB/WR Below average height/weight for position and stocky build. Dual threat QB with mobility to escape pocket. Moves well, can avoid free-rushers, and made plays outside of the pocket as a runner/thrower. Good accuracy and ball placement. Anticipation can be inconsistent. Footwork/mechanics are inconsistent and can tighten up. Can make across body throws. Can get tighter w/drop-back, think he can get more power on throws from lower-half w/coaching. Moves a lot in the pocket but I’m guessing it’s to see the field because of his height. Biggest questions are if he can make throws from the pocket consistently and if can throw with anticipation. His completion % was 55% in 2021.. so, highlights could be misleading.
Chrinovic Mukulu DL/DE Below average height/below to average weight for position/good build with decent thickness. Good leverage and aggressive hand usage to shed blocks in the run game. Speed Pass Rusher, showed the ability to beat blockers around the edge and on the inside by faking outside and then going in. Showed a little bend, but isn’t that fluid.

Nice elusiveness in space, quick cut ability Shows good acceleration. As a receiver, slippery with ball in hands and shows good YAC ability. I think he would be better suited as a slot back. Question his agility and speed, along with his route running.
Delon Smith DB/CB Average height and weight/lean build. Instinctive in Zone with route recognition and positioning himself accordingly. Decent ball skills and is patient down the field, doesn’t get grabby and has really good timing. Good recovery when getting beaten by WR. Physical tackler.

Moves well at his size w/above average initial quickness. Has the ability to pull and finishes defenders w/a strike. Plays through the whistle.

W/Release has twitch and suddenness to get into his route and showed multiple releases. Short-strider who has good acceleration. Playmaker who consistently was able to get open/create separation. Slippery w/the ball in his hands and can cut quickly. Body catches more than I’d like w/throws around his chest, want to see if he snatches the ball more at our Combine.
Jordan Magnuson DL/DT Good height/below average weight. Average length. Moves well and wrestling pedigree shows w/ability to play w/leverage. Plays w/impressive body control and is quick. Plays under control. Quick w/hands and was able to shed blocks. Size needs to get bigger to hold up in the interior, will be interested to see what he looks like for weigh-ins.
Kolby Buljevic DB/CB Good height/length/solid weight. Aligned as a Safety primarily. Awareness noticeable, always putting himself into a position to be around the football. Didn’t get fooled by action in the backfield. Key and diagnoses run plays quickly and wasn’t afraid to stick his nose in there. Good physicality as a tackler.
Larry Rivers RB Undersized for position, but has a solid build for height. Aligned as a RB. Extremely productive during collegiate career. Nose for the end zone. Good feel w/Vision, especially w/over-playing defenders and being able to find the cut-back. Smooth-mover. Catches the football very well out of the backfield.
Mackenzie Balanganayi DL/DE Average height/weight/very good length. Aligned as a DE and played some as a 3-Tech. Good Initial Quickness w/first-step, showed explosiveness w/getting into blockers. Effective w/running twists and staying tight w/path. Got after QBs w/speed to gain the edge and an effective Rip move to shed blockers. Doesn’t have much bend, but made up for it w/nice play strength at his size. Will be looking to see how fluid he is w/his movements and if he’s improved with some of the tightness that he has.
Miquail Harvey OL/OC Poor height/weight/below average length, thickness all in his lower-half. Makes up for size/length issues w/ability to move. Plays under control and is quick off the ball, Positional Blocker who sticks to blocks w/feet quickness. Gets underneath defenders and has a very good strike, creates movement at the POA. Can adjust to moving defenders in the 2nd level and works to finish. Want to see if he’s gotten thicker w/his upper body and if he’s playing closer to 300.
Ramone Atkins QB Good height/weight, put together. Good arm strength, wind-up throwing motion w/good enough release quickness. Footwork/mechanics are inconsistent and can tighten up. Very good AA, moves well, can avoid free-rushers, and made plays outside of the pocket as a runner/thrower. Very similar to Cory Murphy who attended the Combine last year and who most recently played for the Wichita Force in the CIF.
Reginald Collins DB/SS Below average height and weight/ decent length and lean build. Shows ability to shed blocks in the run game. Wrap up tackler.
Robert Andrews DL/DE Nothing on him. Get something on him w/measurements or from interview with Eric.
Robert Froehlich QB Excellent height/very good weight. Wiry w/movements and has nice athleticism for his size. Average release quickness/below average arm strength. Accuracy issues w/release, ball hangs in air longer. Will be looking to see if he’s improved mechanics w/release and how accurate he looks throwing the football at the Combine. Could look impressive if he moves/runs well and shows well with his athleticism.
Tristan Connell Kicker Great leg strength/hang-time.
Tyeous Sharpe WR Average height/weight w/good length. Aligned on the outside/in the slot. At his best as a punt returner. Extremely comfortable catching the football. Slippery w/the ball in his hands and doesn’t have breakaway speed, but has good enough speed. As a WR, caught the football well, doesn’t have much of a route tree, strictly used as a vertical threat. Will be interested to see how he looks moving with running routes at the Combine.
Ubong Udom LB/OLB Aligned more as a DE. Average height/below average weight w/very good length. Doesn’t have a ton of quick-twitch, but showed above average Initial Quickness. Glider w/his movements and as a Speed Pass Rusher, showed the ability to beat blockers around the edge, getting into them w/extension and then utilizing a Rip move. Showed a little bend, but isn’t that fluid. Aggressive and made plays utilizing his pursuit from the back side. Want to see how his short-area quickness is and how he looks taking on blocks/shedding at the Combine at the LB position to see if he can be an effective space/off the ball player.
Vincent Parker DB/FS Based on listed height, below average height/good weight for size. Unable to find highlights, so will have to get stuff from him from interview with Eric or height/weight/size measurements at the Combine. Stats are accurate.
Gio Williams LB/OLB Average height/below average weight/length. Aligned at MLB. At his best around the LOS and showed the ability to find the football within the box. Is going to need to prove that he can play in space, be quick moving laterally, and show that he has speed.
Antwan Shipp RB Below average height/weight, lean build. Low center of gravity, showed solid contact balance for his size. Played as a KR, decisive with his returns and showed the ability to create lanes on his own. Short-strider w/quick burst. Want to see how he looks w/cutting quickly and if he can be successful w/running routes out of the backfield. Speed is questionable.
Frederick Pitts RB Below average weight/above average weight for size. Stocky build w/stature. Has quick-twitch w/movements and is patient as a runner, does well w/running off back-sides of OL and finding the hole. Nice elusiveness in space, quick-cut ability. Acceleration above average. Speed is his major question, doesn’t have breakaway speed so will be interesting to see how he runs in the 40/tests in the Pro. Want to see his ability as a pass-catcher.
Joshua Taylor OL/OC Above average height/weight/good thickness for size w/uppers/lowers. Impressive versatility can play all three positions on the OL. Mauler, wants to impose his will w/physicality and gets into defenders, plays through the whistle. Does a solid job of showing lateral quickness and can shuffle to stay in front of defenders. Plays well in space, can cover up defenders in the 2nd level and in the screen game. Better at the POA w/being explosive w/hands vs. in Pass Pro. Want to see how his pass pro looks at the Combine and if he can sit back, tends to play upright and might struggle w/speed to power rushes.
Anthony Barksdale DB/CB Very good height/below average weight for height/good length. Aligned at CB. Not twitchy w/movements or that quick w/feet, but gets away w/it by being sound in Zone Coverage and understanding what’s happening w/Route Combinations. Want to see if he’s improved w/his fluidity changing directions and how he performs in short-area drills.
Shymere Vessels DL/DT Good height/ below average weight for position. Plays with high pad level. Stiff in the ankles. Does not show much explosion or initial quickness off the LOS. Shows solid pursuit ability to chase plays down.
Darius Philon WR Below average height/poor weight. Aligned in the slot. Better physicality at his size than you’d expect, helped him w/creating separation and getting off Press. Burst is better than overall speed, but showed that he was capable as a vertical threat. Rounded route runner that needs to prove that he can create separation w/quickness/better body control, which would allow him to increase his route tree to include sharp routes.
Donte Simmons RB Below average height/weight/very good thickness for build, stocky and muscular. Cuts well laterally and showed the ability to make people miss consistently in the hole. Runs bigger than his size, impressive pad leverage and isn’t afraid to take-on defenders and lay the wood. Size makes you think he’s an outside runner, but better suited to run in-between the tackles. Doesn’t have home run speed. Will be looking to see how fast he runs.
Jaylen Jenkins LB/ILB Below average weight/length. Height not listed but looks below average height on film. Decent thickness. Plays as a Returner on KR/PR. As a returner, decisive with his returns and showed the ability to create lanes on his own.
Guy Myers QB 6070 might be a stretch, but he has very good height (probably 6050). Slender build/lean, not thick. Very good arm strength, fits the football into tight windows. Good release quickness. Can get tighter w/drop-back, think he can get more power on throws from lower-half w/coaching. Can make all the throws. Biggest question is being consistent w/ball placement and showing that he can make throws w/anticipation. Want to see if his accuracy has improved and if he’s able to hit targets while he’s on the move.
Wendell Bing DL/DT Above average height/length/good weight/thickness. Physically over-powered his competition w/brute strength/force. Decent Initial Quickness. Showed that he was willing to chase after plays if they were near him. Handled blockers at the POA and was tough to move. Will be interested to see how he handles better competition at the POA and if he shows that same stoutness. Movement skills w/lateral ability are questionable.
Bayley Blanchard WR Good height/length/thickness/weight. Aligned in the slot and the outside, better suited in the slot. Possession WR who showed impressive ball skills w/his ability to make contested/difficult catches. Manipulative and deceptive route runner who uses leverage and fakes well to help w/creating separation. Best hands at the Combine. Want to see if he’s improved his acceleration and if he can combine that w/body control to perform well in L-Drill/Pro Agility. 40 is going to be his biggest question mark.
Devon Hunt LB/ILB Below average height/very good weight for height. Good athletic ability, might be very good after he gets done testing. Moves really fluid. Initial Quickness allows him to beat blockers, and he combines this with feel to get into favorable positions. Nose for the football and made a ton of tackles. Explosive player who showed that he could make plays in space. Want to see if he’s able to show that he can play with that same speed while being under control during the Combine drills.
Alan Worsham RB Need to get information on him from interview or measurements/weigh-ins.
JaVon Hayes WR Need to get information on him from interview or measurements/weigh-ins.
Arthur Anderson WR Need to get information on him from interview or measurements/weigh-ins.
Alex Andre WR Need to get information on him from interview or measurements/weigh-ins.
Javon Butler WR Average height/good weight and build for position. Has outside and slot versatility (highlights are mostly on the outside). Used on reverse WR throw plays. W/Release, has twitch and suddenness to get into his route and showed multiple releases. Goes up w/good timing and made plays at the highest point. Hands were noticeable, made some impressive catches in contested situations, with good body control on the sidelines. Can track the ball well on long throws. Looks fast on film because he runs away from defenders. Does not drop hips much when breaking on his route but can still create decent separation. Combine will give more info on his athleticism.
Colton Jewell WR Good weight and height for position/good build. Lines up as a TE, slot and outside WR. W/Release, has twitch and suddenness to get into his route and showed multiple releases. Shows good awareness on QB scramble drill to get open. Goes up w/good timing and made plays at the highest point. Hands were noticeable, made some impressive catches in contested situations, with good body control on the sidelines. Shows ability to make catches outside frame. As TE, does not show blocking ability on highlights (could just be a receiving TE). Interested to see how he tests at combine
Markus Hood WR Below average height and weight for position. Decent thickness. Short strider. Used as a gadget player on WR end arounds. Highlights do not show much. Looks fast on film. Curious to see how he performs at the combine.
Ronald Salters CB Poor height/weight, lean build w/o much thickness, doesn’t have build to gain much more weight. Aligned as an outside CB. Willing tackler, ankle-biter that isn’t afraid to come downhill. Solid quick-twitch. Attacks football impressively for size. Not one to create re-routes at the LOS, but quickness/short-area movement abilities allow him to mirror opposing WRs successfully. Triggers fast w/WR screens and has slightly above average burst. Quick feet at break-points. Want to see how his long speed is, quickness he possesses, will hold up in the slot.
Nah’Shon Godfrey DB Very good height, average weight, has frame to get thicker, pretty lean for his size. Excellent length. Aligned as a DS. Poor speed, range is limited. Decent ball skills, made plays, but hands appear to be susceptible, doesn’t catch smoothly. Upright mover who doesn’t drop weight cleanly. Doesn’t close angles downhill very quickly and allows space. Height and length are eye-catching, but movement abilities are something he’s going to need to show improvement with.
Jaelon Gordon DT Good height/below average weight for position. Stiff ankles. Is not very explosive and does not show initial quickness off the LOS. Showed solid pursuit ability to chase plays down, and plays with a lot of effort. Don’t think he’ll test the best at the combine… we’ll see
Sidney Jones DT Poor height/average weight for position, doesn’t have stature to put on much more, good length. Aligned as a DT. Poor explosiveness w/strike. Poor AA, doesn’t move well laterally or show quickness to gain an advantage. More of a run stuffer than anything, bigger than most OL he played so he held up w/stacking blocks and was able to locate the football really well. Upright playing style will cause him issues, want to see if he plays w/better pad leverage and see if he’s improved his movement abilities overall.
Michael Hall Kicker Nice pop on the ball.
Nate Wieland LB Aligned as a MLB and played some on the edge as well. Slightly above average height/good weight/thickness/above average length. Carries weight well, could beef up some if you needed him to. Showed the ability to rush the passer w/quickness off the edge and got into blockers w/power. Good burst to close and pursuit of plays, avoids trash, and finishes plays. Hits the holes aggressively and has very good instincts to get himself around the football quickly. Super sudden out of his stance and gains an advantage and plays fast. Want to see how he performs in the 40 and if his play speed matches his timed speed, think he’s going to test really well in short-area drills, plays w/really good body control and doesn’t step over himself. Want to see how he looks in coverage as well, but believe his AA will allow him to be successful in this area as well.
Khalim Cisse LB No highlights
Anthony Barber OC No highlights
Dorrell James TE Decent height/below average weight for position. Shows ability to fight off press at LOS and make contested catches. Looks fast on film but combine will give a better picture of overall athleticism
Grady Bresnahan WR Slot WR, not big, short in stature, could stand to add weight to help w/holding up better. Aligned in the slot, but played some on the outside as well. Impressive hands, sticky and made acrobatic grabs. Long speed isn’t there, but he has good quickness. Can get off press w/suddenness. Route running can get fine-tuned some, but can create separation w/quickness/burst. Stop and go ability in the open field and is shifty with the ball in his hands. Ball security needs to improve, gets loose w/the football. Honestly doesn’t seem like someone that should make plays, but has a knack for being the guy they look for. Tough and excellent playing demeanor plays hard. Provides punt returner ability. Body control w/catches down the field at his size is really impressive, puts himself in a position to make a play on the ball. Needs to show that he has the speed to run w/better players and show better refinement w/route running, upright runner that hasn’t consistently shown the ability to drop his weight at his break points.
Fabian Thames LB Below average height/weight thickness. Above average length for height. Poor AA, duck-footed and doesn’t move well laterally. Poor quickness, slow-moving. Showed ability to catch the football when it was within his body-area. Needs to show that he’s improved w/his movement ability, stiff-moving. Power, strength, and explosion are lacking.
Mykeal White DT Good height/below average weight for position. Has a thinner lower body than most DTs. Has inside/outside versatility on the DL. Stiff ankles. Possesses good initial quickness and decent explosion but plays with high pad level and leverage. Shows solid pursuit ability to chase plays down. In run, strong hands at POA and shows ability to shed blocks. On film, will get double and triple teamed. Curious to see his overall athleticism at combine
