|Size/speed prospect that does a great job rushing the passer or pursuing the action from behind. Lacks bulk, handled at the point and a liability against the run. Late round consideration.|
|Nice sized passer best for the short game. Lacks the deep arm and pass placement. Free agent.|
|Solid all around fullback that gives top effort. Limited athlete with minimal upside for the next level.|
|Explosive lineman who may have his career cut short by constant knee injuries.|
|Hard-hitting, run defending safety who also excels on special teams. Limited skills in pass coverage which will drop him deep into the draft.|
|High revving college linebacker who may project to safety at the next level. Aggressive yet instinctive. Must display the ability to be effective in space during the post-season.|
|Athletic interior player with room to grow both physically and in a football sense. Good prospect down the line and a defender who gives 100%.|
|Quick, speedy wide out that stretches defenses deep. Slight build but a good third receiver at the next level and solid late round pick.|
|Over-aged thumper in the middle with excellent size/speed numbers starting to come of "age". Greatly improved his game in 2003 and a solid late round choice.|
|Tough, nasty center but a limited athlete with marginal prospects for the next level.|
|Marion Barber III||RB||21||4Jr||5-10||207||4.61|
|Tough interior runner with a good head for the game as well as bloodlines. Will be highly ranked going into 2004.|
|Solid cover corner that could play in zone at the next level.|
|Big bodied receiver solid hands but minimal speed. Typifies the "possession" wide out.|
|Terry Jackson II||RB||23||4Jr||5-10||185||4.48|
|Slight ball carrier best as a third-down back.|
|Undersized end that has the skills to play off the line. Should be able to stand-up on the outside in a three-four.|
|Big, athletic ball carrier who can catch the pass. Not used as a lead fullback much but too slow to be a ball handler.|
|Coming off successive poor campaigns. Catches the ball well but must get it back on track.|
|Nice run stuffer with marginal skills against the pass.|
|Tough, fierce and smart. Gets no notice in scouting circles but has a good shot at the next level.|
