  • Jammal Brown

    JammalBown -Strengths: Is an experienced OT prospect with the potential to play LOT in the NFL. His strength is in pass protection. He has just adequate height and bulk, but he has longer arms and is very powerful. He has great quickness in his pass pro set. Stays balanced and shows very good body control when he works at it. Has excellent lateral movement skills. Is rarely beat by pure speed and shows the ability to mirror and slide versus the double move when he plays with leverage. He does a very good job in terms of hand placement and he has a jarring punch. His run blocking skills must improve, but he does have good initial quickness and is able to consistently get in position on reach blocks. He has very good initial power and has the potential to develop into an efficient run blocker in the NFL if he becomes more physical and aggressive.

    Weaknesses: Has the athleticism to play LOT but lacks experience at that position. He keeps getting bigger and stronger, but he does not have ideal bulk and he has just adequate height for an elite OT prospect. He is powerful, but does not have the massive frame to simply engulf smaller defensive ends in the NFL. Isnt nearly as physical or aggressive as he needs to be. Seems like hes going through the motions some times. Is athletic but will get lazy sometimes in pass protection and will get caught overextending versus the double move. Doesnt finish as well as he should as a run blocker. He also has some durability concerns.

    Overview: Brown was a partial qualifier who was cleared by the NCAA as a true freshman but wound up redshirting in 2000 because of a knee injury anyway. He played as a reserve right tackle as a redshirt freshman in 01 before taking over as a fulltime starter at right tackle as a sophomore in 02. Brown has been a fulltime starter and first team All-Big 12 the past three seasons (02-04). Brown doesnt have elite size but he keeps getting bigger and stronger. He has excellent feet and good overall athletic ability, which is why he shows the potential to start at the LOT position in the NFL. Brown has had his best season as a senior in 04 and hes become a more technically sound and complete player. But despite his natural ability and success on the collegiate level, Brown could drop to the bottom of the first or the top of the second round due to concerns about his overall toughness and aggressiveness. Similar to Kenyatta Walker (Buccaneers 1st round pick in 2001), theres a chance that Brown never reaches his potential in the NFL because he isnt the hardest worker or the most physical player  thats why hes a big risk-and-reward prospect.

    Alex Barron

    Strengths: Has tremendous upside because of his rare combination of size and athleticism. Has exceptional height and wingspan, and good bulk for his frame. He shows a quick set in pass protection. Rarely gets beat around the edge with pure speed. Shows balance and will rarely get caught on his heels. Really shuffles his feet well and stays under control in pass pro. Has long arms and does a very good job of forcing a wide arc from edge rushers. He is mammoth in the running game. Needs to be more physical and technically sound, but he is quick and has the feet to consistently get in position, and when he is in position he can simply engulf smaller defenders.

    Weaknesses: Is still an unpolished player that lacks ideal game-experience for such a highly rated prospect. He is very athletic, but wont look it when he comes out of his stance high and plays too erect. He doesnt always take great angles and will do a poor job at times with his first step. He still needs to improve his hand-placement and overall awareness in pass pro. He is massive and has good overall strength, but still needs to play with more consistent leverage when anchoring and also needs to improve his upper body power. If he can get stronger up top and start jarring defenders with his hand punch, he can be dangerous as a pass blocking LOT in the NFL. He also has had some durability problems (knee and hand) in the past.

    Overview: Barron redshirted in 2000 due to a torn ACL in his right knee. He saw limited time as a redshirt freshman in 01 due to a hand injury. He started five games as a sophomore in 02 and finally had a breakout season as a fulltime starter in his 03 junior season. Barron obviously had some injuries that thwarted his growth early on and he is not the most polished offensive tackle prospect in the 05 draft class. He also lacks a little bit of a mean streak and will need to become a more aggressive player in the NFL. However, he had his strongest season as a senior in 04 and his combination of size and athletic ability gives him the most upside of any senior OT in this draft class. Barron should be a mid-first round draft pick, and if he pushes himself at the next level he could develop into a perennial Pro Bowl LOT.

      Marcus Johnson

      Strengths: Has terrific size and the frame to continue to get bigger. Shows good initial quickness for his size. Plays with leverage and fires off the ball low for such a tall offensive lineman. He has the size to engulf most DL if he gets in position. He lays with good toughness and is a feisty blocker that will work to finish. He is an experienced and durable player with very good savvy and awareness. He has adequate quickness in his pass pro set. Is extremely difficult to get around in the short area because of his size and wingspan. He plays with good balance and body control in pass pro. He has long arms and shows good hand placement. If his upper body strength improves he can really become dominant after he locks on.

      Weaknesses: Has very minimal experience at OT position. Has improved his strength but its still not ideal. Must especially improve his lower body strength. He can engulf defenders but doesnt show enough explosive initial pop or power. He has adequate quickness in the short area, but hes not a great athlete. Will struggle at times in space as a reach blocker. Will he be able to hold up on an island against NFL pass rushers if he moves outside to ROT at the next level?

      Overview: Johnson redshirted in 2000 and played in a rotation at right guard as a redshirt freshman in 01 before taking over as a fulltime starting right guard in his 02 sophomore season. Johnson finished his career at Ole Miss as a four-year fulltime starter with 48-consecutive starts to his credit. He spent some time at OT because of injuries in 2004 but he spent the majority of his collegiate career at right guard. Johnson has impressive feet and power for his size. He is coming off his most complete season and really improved his draft value as a senior. The big question now is whether or not Johnson can make the transition to tackle in the NFL, which would help to improve his stock even more. At the very least, Johnson is a solid late-second or third round guard prospect. However, if he proves capable of moving to ROT during post-season workouts and/or an all-star game (much like Vernon Carey (Dolphins) did last year, Johnson could solidify a spot even earlier in the second round.

        Barron projected as first OL off board
        Thursday, April 7, 2005
        By Len Pasquarelli

        Here is how rates the top 13 offensive line prospects in the draft:

        • OT Alex Barron (Florida State)
        Vital statistics: 6 foot 7½, 318 pounds, 4.86 in the 40, 19 bench press reps.
        Numbers game: Two-year regular at split-side tackle slot, mostly on the left side, and started in 24 of 25 games in his final two seasons. Began career with medical redshirt after tearing his right anterior cruciate ligament after the first four games in 2000. In 2002, was the backup to Todd Williams. Over final two seasons, he averaged eight knockdown blocks per game. In that period, never graded lower than 87 percent in blocking assignment efficiency. An Outland Trophy finalist.
        Upside: Terrific athlete who has all the physical qualities you want in a left tackle. Freaky-type workout numbers in all the key drills. A guy this big isn't supposed to be this flexible, but his vertical jump and change-of-direction skills verify he can be special. Long arms and a 90-inch wingspan. When he gets his hands on a pass rusher and locks out, and keeps the kind of natural separation all great pass protectors have, the deal is sealed. Very agile, moves well laterally, can mirror pass rushers. Quick enough to get out and block at the second level.
        Downside: Watch him on tape and there seems to be something, maybe a natural passion for the game, missing from his makeup. Not as tough as you want in the running game. Will struggle at times against smaller, quicker ends, and will get back on his heels and lose balance. Relies too much on natural ability, will get lazy and slide off blocks. Just doesn't dominate as consistently as he should.
        The dish: Given his innate tools, should be the first lineman taken, perhaps in the top 10. People question his desire, and justifiably so, but he's just too talented not to take.

        • OT Khalif Barnes (Washington)
        Vital statistics: 6 foot 5¾, 305 pounds, 4.92 in the 40, 26 bench press reps.
        Numbers game: Despite missing most of his senior season in 2004 after breaking his right wrist in the fifth game, logged 42 career starts. Unofficially, recorded 128 knockdown blocks in final two seasons. Began college career as a defensive lineman before moving to left offensive tackle late in his 2000 redshirt year.
        Upside: Exceptionally quick feet. Moves nicely laterally, can shuffle and stay in front of a defender. Big, long frame, and can probably handle another 10-20 pounds pretty easily. Takes good angles, stays balanced and will cut off the perimeter. Plenty quick enough to recover. Has flashed some nastiness in the past.
        Downside: Tends to just ride pass rushers upfield rather than redirect their charge and gets beat a little too often to the inside. A tad mechanical at times. Initial punch-out doesn't have the kind of...

        Rating the wide receivers
        by RamWraith
        By John Murphy, Yahoo! Sports
        February 20, 2007

        The wide receiver position comes back with a vengeance, as the top of this year's crop is made up of mostly underclassmen. As many as six receivers have potential first-round grades, including the possible No. 1 overall pick – Georgia Tech's Calvin Johnson.

        For the most part, the top five possess good size with all but Ohio State's Ted Ginn Jr. measuring at least 6-foot-2, but it could be interesting to see how teams favor this group. There is a solid foundation of prospects that could go anywhere between late in the first round all the way down to the third or fourth rounds.

        Last season, the NFL Rookie of the Week honors went to a wide receiver on seven different occasions with seventh-round pick Marques Colston and undrafted free agent Hank Baskett accounting for four of those awards. Therefore, expect an early run on receivers.

        However, a straying away from the position will allow several high-profile names to still be on the board come the second day of the draft.

        Yamon Figurs, Kansas State
        Onrea Jones, Hampton
        Julius McClellan, North Carolina Central


        1. Calvin Johnson, Georgia Tech. Potentially the best pound-for-pound athlete in the draft as he stands 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds and has been timed in the 4.3-second range in the 40. He also has a vertical leap between 42 and 45 inches and a broad jump of 11 feet.

        Johnson matches that athleticism with playmaker ability on the field and a quiet unassuming presence off of it. In fact, for a player of his talent level, there has not been a prospect with less of an ego or more of a workmanlike attitude to enter the draft in years. He acts and wants to be treated like he's just one of the guys, but he brings such a wealth of ability to the field that it would not be surprising to see him taken No. 1 overall.

        He is very flexible and has a fluid stride that allows him to separate from defenders, although he needs to do a better job of locating the ball when it is in the air, especially when going to out-jump opposing defenders. He has great moves in the open field as he can take a short screen or slant route and deliver big yardage after the catch.

        Without putting too much blame on his former quarterback (Reggie Ball), the accuracy and pocket presence of Georgia Tech's quarterback play was inconsistent throughout Johnson's college career. One aspect he could improve upon is breaking off his routes and coming back to the ball. Still, he shows adept footwork to keep or get himself inbounds along the sideline or in the end zone. He's a good all-around talent as he looks for players downfield to block and was able to cut-block defenders with the best of them in college.

        One of the hardest workers at his pre-combine...

        2018 DRAFT Round 3 #89: Rams take Joseph Noteboom, OT, TCU
        by Nick
        Scouting Report: Joseph Noteboom
        2018 NFL Mock Draft
        DraftGeek’s Mock Draft
        School: TCU Position: Offensive Tackle Class: Senior Height: 6-5 Weight: 319 lbs Projected Draft Round: 4-6

        Scouting Report:
        Has a confounding prospect profile that is typical of most of the offensive linemen coming into the NFL lately- shows signs of good technique, balance, hand usage, bend, etc., but is wildly inconsistent. This pattern has much more to do with the offensive systems and the type of coaching they are receiving, as it doesn’t match what is expected of them in the next level. However, he showed well during the Senior Bowl, and if teams decide that circumstance is the reason that his tape is what it is, he could move into middle, even upper rounds. He has a big frame, but needs to add more quality bulk, but his athleticism and technique have shown enough to get the attention of scouts.

        Joseph Noteboom | 68
        OT | SR | TCU
        Ht: 6050 | Wt: 322 | Upd: 12/28/2017
        Hometown: Plano, Texas | High School: Plano High School
        Ourlads' Profile:

        At this point in mid-October, what was initially perceived to be a solid left tackle class after an underwhelming group in 2017 has more question marks than answers. The top players to watch at the position have either been hurt or don’t appear to have the foot speed for the left side. The top spot is still very much up for grabs.
        A name that was only somewhat on the radar prior to the season but has been creeping his way up is Joseph Noteboom, a fifth year senior and three year starter from TCU. In his first year on the left side, he has showed consistent foot speed and technique. The ultra-wide wingspan and easy kick slide make him a tough guy to beat off the edge. When his balance is there, Noteboom has showed the ability to neutralize both speed and power rushers alike. He does a solid job of keeping his hands inside with proper knee bend foot separation, making him able to maintain his power. There is still a lot of strength development and progression to be done, but his frame is easily something an NFL team can work with and matched with what he already has, there is a very high ceiling to work with here.

        Draft Projection
        Round 2-3

        Noteboom flashes the technique, hand usage, and athleticism you want out of the position but he doesn't do those things with enough consistency. His inability to gain and secure positioning as a move blocker is a concern as is his consistency as a finisher in running game. Noteboom was one of the tackles who flashed at the Senior Bowl in one-on-one drills and had a great workout at the Combine. The tape says day three, but his work during the "draft season" should get him drafted on the second day with...

        National Editor,

        1. Matt Leinart, USC

        Matt Leinart's southpaw delivery might give some potential suitors some pause.
        Matt Leinart's southpaw delivery might give some potential suitors some pause.
        Positives: Perfect size (6-foot-4 and 224 pounds) for an NFL quarterback because he is tall enough to easily seeover linemen and has a chance to hold up to physical punishment resulting from poor protection and rookie mistakes in picking up the blitz, etc. ... Large hands and long arms are also plusses. ... Very good accuracy, especially on touch passes. ... Excels at reading coverages and quickly finding open receiver. ... Better footwork than one might expect for his large frame, and is quick to set up for throws. ... Strong leadership; doesn't rattle easily vs. pressure or when faced with adversity.

        Negatives: Arm strength unspectacular, but good enough that it shouldn't prove a major problem. ... As a lefty, will force team that drafts him to focus on putting best pass-blocking tackle on the right, which is uncommon. ... Long throwing motion could give defensive backs an edge on anticipating where his passes go. ... Poor mobility, but is a talented enough passer to overcome that and be the first quarterback selected.
        2. Vince Young, Texas (underclassman)

        Vince Young is being compared to Donovan McNabb and Daunte Culpepper.
        Vince Young is being compared to Donovan McNabb and Daunte Culpepper.
        Positives: Exceptional combination of size (6-5 and 230 pounds) and off-the-charts athleticism make him an extremely rare talent. ... Outstanding speed and mobility make him a constant threat to run, and will keep defenses occupied with mainly trying to minimize the damage he can do with his feet. ... Quick enough to avoid pressure in the pocket and keep a play alive, but strong enough to break tackles when he does run. ... Showed tremendous poise in leading the Longhorns and scoring his winning touchdown run for the national championship in the Rose Bowl, the biggest football stage this side of the Super Bowl.

        Negatives: Stories of poor results on intelligence test at the Scouting Combine were overblown, but could prove damaging to what once seemed like a surefire top-three (or top) pick. ... Sidearm delivery makes throws vulnerable to being knocked down. ... Overall passing mechanics are raw and need work. ... Patience and decision-making in the pocket.
        3. Jay Cutler, Vanderbilt

        Jay Cutler won big points with the scouts when he worked out at the Combine.
        Jay Cutler won big points with the scouts when he worked out at the Combine.
        Positives: Strong arm and overall strength emanating from solid, 6-2, 223-pound frame. ... Makes every kind of throw, but is especially impressive on deep outs and squeezing the ball through small openings. ... Intelligence,...
