Damontre Moore OLB Texas A&M

Projected draft stock last month: top 10

The guy was a standout defensive lineman at Texas A&M. A high first-round pick according to some mock drafts. So, what happened at the Combine? Moore was able to bench-press 225 pounds just 12 times, ranking him last among defensive linemen. Not good. What's worse, he appeared to suffer a hamstring injury while running the 40-yard dash. Moore might have yipped his way out of the first round.

Quite good.

NFL scouts weren't high on Ball after his junior season. They probably still aren't now. His 4.66 time in the 40 isn't what teams are looking for in a running back. He fared even worse in the short shuttle, which is another critical drill for running back prospects. Where will he go in the draft? Late ... if at all at this point.

How do you feel about him at: 6th round?
Honestly, I've faded on between the tackles plodders. Doesn't seem to be a good fit with our OL.

I'll pass, and prefer mid-sized or smaller RBs with speed and elusiveness.

The wide receiver out of Cal has been a sexy pick to go in the first round. Well, he participated in exactly zero drills at the Combine. So ... uh, why did he show up? To practice his interview skills? There are speech classes for that.

I feel like he's getting passed over by a lot of other WR prospects right now. Teams will pass on him in the 1st knowing they can get really good WRs in the midrounds this year. This is a great year for WR depth.

I'd take a good hard look at him at 34.

Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State. After a rough Tuesday, Banks no longer looks like a first-round pick. He posted one of the slower 40 times (4.59) among corners. Banks looks good on film, but he needed to show more speed and other corners like Xavier Rhodes of Florida State may have jumped him

How do you feel about him at: 34?
I'll wait for the pro day. 4.59 is dreadful. I wouldn't take him at 34 anymore. I wouldn't even take him in the first five rounds anymore.

This a deep class of receivers, and Williams may get lost in the middle of the pack after a poor showing in Indianapolis.

How do you feel about him at: 34?
I'd take a good hard look.

Chance Warmack, OL, Alabama

Some draft analysts downplayed Warmack’s 5.49 time in the 40, saying pulling guards don’t have to run 40 yards. But the 6-2, 317-pound Warmack looked soft – maybe the reason he skipped the bench press.

How do you feel about him at: 34?
He is not a fit for this offense.

How do you feel about him at: 34?
I probably am not shopping for Minter until the 4th, if he's still there.
