Alex Barron/T/70/5Sr: Athletic
tackle with great potential for the next level. Effectively
protects the blind side of his quarterback and shows flashes of
dominance. Needs to improve his overall intensity and work harder
to meet his uppermost potential. Top pick in next April's draft.
Jerome Carter/S/23/4Sr: Toguh
defending safety. Forceful up the field, fights through the traffic and
likes physical contact. Also effective on special teams.
Lacks overall pass cover skills and tends to play out of control.
Chauncey Davis/DE/94/4Sr: Undersized
yet explosive pass rusher. Best off the edge, quick to close and
makes a lot of athletic plays. Does not possess the size to be an
every down offensive lineman and may be best over tackle in a 34
hard working safety best defending the run. Plays with good instincts and
athlete limited in a type of schemes he will be successful in at the
Travis Johnson/DT/99/5Sr: Explosive
defensive tackle coming off a sterling senior campaign. Explosive
plays with leverage and makes a lot of plays on the ball. Moving
up draft boards after a mediocre junior campaign and could eventually
end up in the top 32.
sized cornerback with top athletic skills. Natural defensive back
with good footwork, hip movement and ball skills. Fine tuned
his game this season and improved his instincts which is greatly
increased his draft stock.
Bobby Meeks/G/73/5Sr: Hard
working yet undersized blocker who gives top effort. Limited
athlete that lacks great upside for the next level.
Eric Moore/DE/55/4Sr: Explosive
edge rusher consistently making plays in the opponents backfield.
Quick off the snap, fluid changing direction and good in pursuit.
Consistently gives top effort. Undersized yet does possess growth
potential and a solid developmental prospect.
Chris Rix/QB/16/5Sr: Big
armed prospect who took a major step backwards this season.
Possesses the physical skills yet makes a lot of poor choices both on
and off the field.
Dominic Robinson/WR/21/4Sr: Solid
receiver that also excels as a return specialist. Occasionally
breaks the long play yet lacks the size\speed numbers to be anything other
than a fifth receiver at the next level.
Leroy Smith/CB/32/5Sr: Well-built
cornerback that occasionally flashes ability. Best as a
dime back at the next level.
Chauncey Stovall/WR/15/5Sr: King
sized receiver that took his game to another level as a senior.
Controls the game and more importantly has continually progressed on the
football field. Plays faster than his 40 time yet still not a
receiver that beats defenders down the field. Solid mid round
choice whose stock will increase with good pre-draft workouts.
Craphonso Thorpe/WR/1/4Sr: Game
breaking receiver that previously displayed the ability to control contests. Possesses a lot of natural skills and fluid in almost
all aspects. Highly rated coming into the season yet struggled to
return from the broken leg he suffered last year and as a result has
watched his draft stock slide.
B.J. Ward/S/25/5Sr: Outstanding
physical specimen with top size/speed numbers. Flashes skill
yet to this point more athlete then football player.
Leon Washington/RB/3/3Jr: Elusive
ball carrier with the speed to run outside of tackle or the toughness to
take it on the interior. Solid receiver out of the backfield and
flashes big play ability as a return specialist. Very good prospect
for the future but will be downgraded because of poor size.
Ray Willis/T/77/5Sr: Big,
strong run blocking tackle that works very hard. Powerful at the point
removing opponents from the action, opening running lanes.
Marginal skills in space with even less abilities in motion. Could
develop into a starting strong side blocker at the next level.
Josh Bailey/TE/49/3Jr: Solid collegiate tight end effective as both a blocker at pass
catcher. Does not stand out in any single aspect and has marginal
upside for the next level.
Tim Brown/C/60/6Sr: Tough,
intelligent blocker strong at the point. Effectively uses
body positioning to wall defenders from the action. Marginal
athlete who lacks the great upside for the next level. Late round
selection who may be a career back-up.
Kay Jay Harris/RB/1/4Sr: Interior runner with the speed to get outside of tackle. Feature
ball carrier at the top of his game yet has the durability and toughness questions.
Chris Henry/WR/5/3Jr: Nice
sized receiver that displays the ability to make the big play.
Consistently gets separation and finds the open spot in the
defense. Loses focus and will drop passes. Off the field issues. Would
be smart to return for another season at WVU if welcomed.
King sized pass catcher that flashes dominance. Relatively
consistent and does a good job when the pass is thrown in his
direction. Must learn to play to his size\speed on every down yet
a solid developmental prospect.
cover corner with the ability to shutdown opponents. Technically
sound and makes a lot of plays when the ball's in the air. Also a good
return specialist. Offers a lot of upside for the next level and
could break into next April's first round if he enters the draft.
Adam Lehnortt/ILB/10/5Sr: Instinctive
run defending linebacker with marginal upside for
the next level.
interior lineman quick off the snap with a nice first step. Gives
top effort yet has marginal size\speed numbers and only a backup at the
Rasheed Marshall/QB/2/5Sr: Athletic
passer with a big arm and a prospect who projects to either receiver or
safety. Natural skills gives him an upside for the next level yet will
need time to develop at a new position.
Michael Watson/T/75/4Sr: Strong
position blocker that displays a good degree of athleticism. Walls
defenders from the play and opens holes for the running game.
Solid mid-to-late round pick.
