Damian Williams to declare for NFL Draft

December 22, 2009

Damian Williams

WR – USC Junior 6’0″ 191 lbs

According to NFLDraftBible.com, USC Wide receiver is declaring for the NFL Draft. Williams has first round potential and falls in the the top 5 overall wide receivers for most people. Known for his pristine route running, Williams will most likely impress the scouts at the combine in the position drills. Williams is now competition for guys like Golden Tate, Arrelious Benn and Mardy Gilyard for who will be the second wide receiver taken in the 2010 NFL Draft. ***UPDATED*** It should be noted that as of the Emerald Bowl, Williams HAS NOT declared for the draft. This was apparently speculation on the part of NFL Draft Bible. While we expect Williams to declare after the outstanding bowl game performance, ESPN.com has reported that Williams has stated that he will announce his decision after going home to Arkansas to (read more…)

Ryan Mathews declares for NFL Draft

December 21, 2009

Ryan Matthews

RB – Fresno State Junior 5’10” 220 lbs

NFL Draft Bible is reporting that Fresno State RB Ryan Mathews will declare for the NFL Draft. Mathews led the NCAA in rushing this season, but many haven’t heard of him. Mathews is a solid runner that can also catch out of the backfield, but playing at Fresno State is what has hurt his draft stock most. As of right now, we expect Mathews to be a fringe first round player with the Combine really deciding his draft position.

Donovan Warren declares for draft

December 21, 2009

Donavan Warren

CB – Michigan Junior 6’0″ 185 lbs

Add another top ranked junior to the declared underclassmen list. Michigan CB Donovan Warren has decided that he’s ready for the pros. With a relatively weak cornerback class, this makes a lot of sense for Warren. As of right now, Warren is probably a mid-2nd round pick, but could move into the top of round 2 with solid workouts.

Anthony Davis to enter NFL Draft

December 20, 2009

Anthony Davis

OT – Rutgers Junior 6’5″ 328 lbs

Rutgers offensive tackles Anthony Davis told the media that he will hold a press conference on Tuesday, December 22nd to announce his plans for the NFL. According to ESPN.com, Davis is expected to announce that he’ll skip his senior season and enter the NFL Draft. Davis is another tackle with solid size and maybe the best skill set in the draft. Though he could still use a little work on his fundamentals and technique, Davis should expect to be a first round draft pick when it’s all said and done.

Bruce Campbell to enter NFL Draft

December 18, 2009

Bruce Campbell

OT – Maryland Junior 6’6″ 312 lbs

Maryland offensive tackle Bruce Campbell decided today that he’ll pass up his senior season and enter the NFL Draft. Campbell has spectacular size at 6’6″ 312 lbs, but needs to work on his technique. With this year’s senior class of offensive lineman lacking in first round talent, it’s a solid business decision for Campbell.

Gerald McCoy to enter NFL Draft

December 18, 2009

Gerald McCoy

DT – Oklahoma Junior 6’3″ 296 lbs

Oklahoma DT Gerald McCoy has decided to pass up his senior season and declare for the NFL Draft. McCoy, who would be the top rated player in just about any other draft, sits just behind Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh on our board. McCoy can plan for an invite to New York for the draft and is a sure fire top 5 pick.

Arrelious Benn to enter NFL Draft

December 18, 2009

Arrelious Benn

WR – Illinois Junior 6’1″ 221 lbs

Illinois WR Arrelious Benn has decided to pass up his senior season and enter the NFL Draft. Benn is a possible first round wide receiver, but lack of production in his Junior year could hurt his stock. However, the entire Illinois team lacked production, so we’ll wait to see what he does at the combine.

Jake Locker to return for Senior season

December 14, 2009

Jake Locker

QB – Washington Junior 6’3″ 226 lbs

Washington quarterback Jake Locker announced today that he will return for his senior season for the Huskies. Locker, who many regarded as possibly the first quarterback to be taken in the 2010 NFL Draft decided that he needs another season under his belt before going to the NFL, stating “After a great deal of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided to return to Washington and play my senior year.” According to the most recent mock draft by Todd McShay at ESPN.com, Locker was the number one overall pick, going to the St. Louis Rams. We at Draft Breakdown.com agreed that if Locker were to enter the 2010 NFL Draft, he would be the first quarterback taken in the draft. Perhaps Jimmy Clausen, Sam Bradford and Colt McCoy should all cover Locker’s final year of living expenses at Washington….he just (read more…)

December 12, 2009

Mark Ingram

RB – Alabama Sophomore 5’10” 215 lbs

Alabama running back Mark Ingram was named the 75th winner of the Heisman Trophy tonight. This is the 2nd straight season a sophomore has been the recipient of the award. Ingram won the award on the heels of a dominate performance against Florida in the SEC Championship game. Florida came into the game with the #1 ranked defense in the nation, and Ingram exploited their weaknesses. Ingram finished the game with 28 carries for 113 yards and 3 rushing touchdowns. Ingram was also a threat receiving the ball, catching 2 passes for 76 yards, one of which went for 69 yards. Ingram finished the season with 1542 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns in what is arguably the toughest overall and defensive conference in all of college football. The 75th annual Heisman Trophy was the closest race in history as Ingram (read more…)
