Mario Williams solidified himself as one of the top four players in this draft. After running well his workout was outstanding. Several scouts say Williams is just plain big and nasty.
Williams' North Carolina State teammate, Manny Lawson, also solidified himself as a fist round choice. While many will concentrate on Lawson's outstanding 40-times, he displayed great range and quickness in the practice session.
And a third member of the Wolfpack, John McCargo also looked solid.
Improving on a fine showing at the Senior Bowl, Kamerion Wimbley was outstanding during the practice session. Explosive and displaying great feet, Wimbley also stood out in linebacker drills. Wimbley's Seminole teammate, Brodrick Bunkley also showed well.
Ohio State's Mike Kudla moved into the draft's initial 60-picks. While his workout numbers will be the talk of the town, like Wimberly, Kudla showed great movement skills and looked good during linebacker drills.
Saving what was a lost junior campaign and questionable choice to enter the draft, Ray Edwards looked good all day. The most impressive thing about Edwards is he looks almost skinny at 273 pounds and offers plenty of room for growth.
Stanley McClover of Auburn looked very athletic and impressed at 262 pounds.
Gabe Watson was solid at the start then faded. Though not outstanding, Haloti Ngata also showed well.
After a pair of disappointing 40-times, Parys Haralson showed well in the line and linebacker drills. Quick and explosive, Haralson was solid all day.
Another SEC defender, Mark Anderson, also stood out. Displaying great explosion, Anderson was fast in every direction and showed well when run through a battery of linebacker drills.
Copeland Bryan, Barry Cofield, Chris Gocong, Jason Hatcher, Ryan Lacasse, Rob Ninkovich and James Wyche all turned in solid days of work.
On the flip side Mathias Kiwanuka watched his grade slip, almost as much due to the performances of other prospects as anything else.
Elvis Dumervil did not workout because of an injury after a pair of poor forty times and continues to move through the second day.
Johnny Jolly of Texas A&M was just bad.
