    UCF Finatic, UCF

    Strengths:
    A heady player who has been productive in the past as evident by a pair of awards. Active in all faucets of the game ranging from trading, free agency and drafting. Has been known to be a prospect hawk and stealing high ceiling prospects in middle rounds.

    Weakness:
    Physically not the most imposing and the possibly the slowest timed GM. Will need to work on his multitasking and finger dexterity to work the phone and suction patients he puts under. Can be known to not get along with others indicating off-field problems but most scouts believe it was an isolated incident. Tries to play the game clean but will need time to adjust to the rules of the game at the next level.

    Overview:
    Productive at the previous level and an award winner UCF FINatic still needs to work on his physical skills which can push him down a round, especially his game speed (which seems to be non-existent at time). Not as much upside as some of the more raw talents in this draft, but if you want a safe prospect FINatic can provide what you expect from his position.

    Late 1st Round - 2nd Round.

    PD (Place Drafter) BuckeyeKing, Ohio State

    Strengths:
    Some might consider him underrated, others overrated but one thing scouts and experts can agree on is, is his consistency. Has been able to play his game year after year and is one of the hardest working players in the game. His vision in draft situations is near the top of the board and can be considered above average in terms of game play intelligence.

    Weakness:
    Really needs to work on his positioning and angles in games, has been known to be out of place and beaten by other players. Continues to work on his positioning but needs to bring it up to be considered average among his peers. Is a vocal player and will let you know when something doesn't go his way and hasn't been known to work with others in a co-role.

    Overall:
    Much like some other experience players at the previous level, lacks the upside of other players. If drafted most would expect to see some improvement but has a low ceiling. He is a starter from day one, maybe not franchise level but a plug and play type. Some might have him sit behind another until he earns his stripes. A ten year player ala Jarret Johnson.

    LOS (Left Outside the Stadium) Mach, California-Berkley

    Strengths:
    Focused individual with adequate game IQ.

    Weakness:
    Focused in the wrong aspects of the game, singular in terms of what he can do as a player. Lacks the necessary physicality to make an impact and was almost head-to-head with UCF FINatic in terms of timed speed (Which is faster than his game speed.) Loaded with off-field issues and lacks an average motor and tends to not finish plays. He has been sidelined for the past couple of seasons, so durability is a concern, will show up but lacks the ability to make an immediate impact.

    Overview:
    Once a touted and had a couple of marginal seasons, his low end motor has hurt his draft stock and could be an indication that he might not be any more than a solid rotational player at the next level. Needs to overcome some physical and mental short comings to hang onto a roster spot beyond pre-season. There is still some upside, but is barely draftable with a late-late-third day grade. Compares to Matt Flynn where looks good in a limited role and under the right system, but don't expect a starter as other talent will pass him by on the depth chart. A team that has interest will draft him, otherwise he's a very low priority signing.

    Late 7th - Low Priority Undrafted Free Agent

    A little high for Mach to go since he didn't make his college team :)

    INO-WR (In N Out Wide Receiver) Paul 13, California Wesleyan College

    Strengths:
    Good at running multiple routes, though he excels at Go routes like the Go Sleep On the Couch Tonight route, the Go To Work Route or his bread and butter the Don't Go There Go route. Is one of the more experienced players in terms of age and game experience that gives him deeper insight into whats happening on the field. Has leadership abilities that will benefit teams with younger talent.

    Weakness:
    Can be a little slow out of his breaks, which generally range from twenty minutes to a full forty five minutes unpaid. He's a numbers guy and might care about only the ones that affect him or he crunches in his own street lingo. Street lingo shows character issues as he comes from the wrong side of Santa Clara. Older than your average prospect and definitely a boom or bust type with the least height left on his ceiling.

    Overview:
    Paul 13 could be compared to the likes of Brandon Weeden or Chris Weinke, an older player who's come in and earn accolades at this level but might never hit his peak at the next level because of the lack of room to improve. Could easily be out of the league in a couple seasons and teams looking to draft him need to be in a win now mode with a lot of talent to surround him, or be stuck at a 8-8/9-7 record.

    2nd Round - 3rd Round Grade
