Dan Orlovsky QB  Uconn  6045  230  29 1/4 9 1/2 
Weigh-In Notes: 
Monday Practice Notes: Struggled all day.  While he has a decent arm and was on the money in the short field, he looked bad throwing the ball long.  Under-threw many of his receivers in the deep field and overall, marginal accuracy today.

Kyle Orton QB  Purdue  6035  226  30 9 3/4
Weigh-In Notes: Best of the quarterbacks, not saying much 
Monday Practice Notes:  Very good between the numbers showing speed and accuracy on his throws.  Down the field it was a different story as the passes started to spray.  Has an elongated, wind-up motion which must be made compact, as several scouts noted.

Weigh-In Notes: Smallish arms, good chest 
Monday Practice Notes: From a blocking point of view he was terrible and beaten all day.  But when it came time to run and catch the ball his game stood out.  Long snapped but the results were below par at best.

Analysis:  
Alex Smith TE  Stanford  6036  257  34 1/4 10 
Weigh-In Notes: Very sculpted, wide shoulders

Jonathan Clinkscale OG  Wisconsin  6017  316  33 5/8 10 1/2
Weigh-In Notes: Flabby
Monday Practice Notes:  In similar fashion to his college career, Clinkscale was inconsistent.  At times he was dominant yet he seemingly had mental lapses and would get beaten when he should not have.  Easy to see he has ability.

Atiyyah Ellison DT  Missouri  6035  305  33 3/4 8 7/8
Weigh-In Notes: A solid 305
Monday Practice Notes:  A very athletic defender that stands out.  Tough to knock off his feet and beat opponents on several occasions today.  Mentally not as sharp and was slow locating the ball or finding the play.  Proved he has a lot of tools to work with.
