The offensive board is complete for the time being and here is my crack at the defensive side of the ball. I will get a little bit more specific as the weeks come before the Draft. When the time comes I will break up players by 3-4 and 4-3 defenses, but right now I am still working on where they fit into each scheme.

Over the last to days we have had a lot going on with news coming out of NFL Draft prospect camps. Usually when it is this late into the process or close to he Combine, it isn’t the most positive news. Below are three noteworthy stories involving potential 1st round picks in the upcoming NFL Draft:

download (1)-Alabama running back Eddie Lacy will NOT work out as Adam Schefter of ESPN has reported that he has a slight tear in his hamstring. He reportedly injured the hamstring practicing the 40 yard dash. It is ironic that the most sought after running back that personnel people and Draft analysts wanted to see run his 40 yard dash, now cannot participate  Lacy will aim for his Alabama Pro Day on March 13th to run. Largely considered the most NFL ready running back in the Draft class, Lacy will hopefully have no setbacks in his recovery and can show scouts what he can do before the NFL Draft in April.

 

 

images (1)-Southern California quarterback Matt  Barkley probably had the most to prove by throwing at the Combine, but reports are that his injured shoulder is not going to allow him to do so. Barkley will still go through interview processes and medial evaluations  which will be huge for him, and there is no news out there if he will run his 40 or do any other drills. Barkley is falling down a lot of draft boards and this will only further strengthen the “Barkley haters” voices around the blogs. No matter how you slice it, Barkley at some point needs to make an appearance to scouts in which he shows that his arm/shoulder is not in need of any more medical procedures. A lot of his draft stock is now weighing heavily on his medical exams at the Combine.

 

 

images-Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree was/is widely considered a first round draft pick on many boards. Ogletree was not without his character concerns as it is, but he did nothing to help his case by getting pulled over for DUI in Arizona recently. The former Georgia Bulldog was cited in a misdemeanor theft that he missed a  game for in 2010, and missed four games in 2011 for what was reported as punishment for failed drug tests. No matter how you slice it, every single NFL team will be on high alert when researching Ogletree’s past and why he continues to struggle staying out of trouble. He will have a LOT riding on his personal interviews and how he responds to the criticism he has and will receive from this incident.
