2012 Senior Bowl: Offense

Michael Egnew, TE, Missouri – Reported to having 4.6 speed, but doesn’t always show up in game film. Not a good blocker, but has nice hands and is a good route runner. I see him as a third or fourth rounder.

Ledarius Green, TE, Lousiana-Lafayette – 6-6 TE that lacks bulk, but has nice speed for a TE. Is a poor blocker, but makes a lot of plays in the passing game. Can be a versatile player in the NFL lining up as a WR or TE. With a good draft season, I could see him in the third round.

Emil Igwenagu, TE, UMass – 6-1 245 TE/FB who also played linebacker during his career at UMass. Doesn’t have a ton of speed, but could cling on with a team as a tweener blocking project. Caught 75 passes during his career at UMass with 38 coming his senior year for 375 yards and three touchdowns. Could be a seventh rounder with a solid draft season.

Brian Linthicum, TE, Michigan State – A nice pass-catching TE that doesn’t have elite speed. Only 6-5 245, could afford to bulk up to improve his run blocking. 6th round pick.

DeAngelo Peterson, TE, LSU – Raw prospect who could prove a lot in draft season. He’s the kind of TE that could benefit from the Patriots use of their TEs. Wasn’t overly productive at LSU. Would need to have a good draft season to be drafted.

Brad Smelley, TE, Alabama – Good, versatile player who can line up in a variety of positions. Has nice hands, but only had one real breakout season this year for Alabama. He can afford to bulk up, but could lose some speed, only 6-3 236 right now. 7th round prospect/UDFA.

Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State – Already showcases some elite pass blocking skills. It will be interesting to see where he comes in height/weight-wise at the weigh in. Will likely go in the end of the first round due to so many teams needing tackles.

Levy Adcock, OT, Oklahoma State – Likely doesn’t have the athleticism to stick at LT in the pros, but could be a nice RT prospect. Adcock has to work on his footwork, but has the tools to be a late third/early fourth round prospect.

Tony Bergstrom, OL, Utah – Short arms could limit him to being a guard at the next level. Could afford to add some bulk at the next level. Fifth or sixth round prospect.

Will Blackwell, OL, LSU – Guard prospect, who could also see some time at center at the pro level. Has good size and athleticism, but could add some strength as he can get overpowered at times. I see a late round pick, 6th or 7th round.

Phillip Blake, C, Baylor – Only 6-2, but carries his 320 lbs well. Holds up well even against bigger NTs. Did a great job against fellow senior bowl player Alamada Ta’amu in the Alamo Bowl, proving he can get it done against NFL prospects. 5th round.

Mike Brewster, C, Ohio State – Strong pass blocker who reads defensive schemes well. Likely won’t stand out in drills at the combine, but has a great tape. Second or third round pick.

James Brown, OT, Troy – Junior college player that joined Troy as a junior. Projects as a guard at the next level. Needs to do a better job staying low in the NFL, but has the athleticism to get to the next level. Late round project, 7th round.

Garth Gerhart, C, Arizona State – Former Stanford RB, Toby Gerhart’s brother. May not have the size to compete in the NFL, under 6-1. Flashes some of the same athleticism that his brother has to play RB. I see a 7th round pick or UDFA.

Cordy Glenn, OG, Georgia – Absolutely massive LT at the college level, but at 6-5 348 lbs, may project better as a guard at the NFL level. Shows nice quickness for his size. Has the strength to get a good push in the run game. 2nd round guard prospect.

Ben Jones, C, Georgia – Does a nice job reading opposing defenses, rarely misses on picking up his blitzer. Does a good job staying low and maintain his power. Really good center prospect in a good interior line class. Third round pick.

Senio Kelemete, OG, Washington – Left tackle that projects at guard in the NFL, doesn’t flash great athleticism, but has nice footwork. Gets a nice push in run blocking. Decent mid-round guard prospect, 4th or 5th round.

Matt McCants, OL, UAB – Over 6-5, could be a really nice steal. Already plays with good power in the run game, and could afford to gain some more weight. Shut down some impressive players this season including top DE prospect Vinny Curry. I can see him being taken in the third round.
