"I understood the game a lot more than I did in previous years," Raji explained. "I better understood how I was going to be attacked, at pre-snap I was able to get some good reads, whether it was going to be a double-team or how a player was going to block me. So that helped me choose what moves to use."
Raji will put his moves, football knowledge and talent on display during an upcoming private workout with the Denver Broncos on March 20. His recent on-campus workout make him a possible top-five selection, taking him off the board for the Packers, who select ninth.
"My sophomore and junior year, I had starts in those years, but my senior year was the only one where I was a full-time starter. That last year, I put more time into improving my footwork and looking at film," he said. "I still think my greatest football is still yet to be played, and I hope I get to express that at the next level."
Fletcher said he'll probably run his 40-yard dash and do the vertical jump again at Iowa's Pro Day on March 23. He's drawn interest from a number of teams, including the Packers, Detroit Lions and the Denver Broncos, who got to know him better during formal interviews at the NFL Combine.

Heyward-Bey is a legitimate deep threat who has to be accounted for on every play. Highly respected for his speed, he backed-up his reputation at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis by posting a 4.30-second 40-yard dash time, tops among all of the wide receivers.
"Being able to make the big play and change the momentum of a game, that's something I love to do," Heyward-Bey told Scout.com. "That's something that (Maryland Head) Coach Friedgen always pushed me to do. Because of the style of offense we played, being able to take a 5-yard hitch and turn it into an 80-yard touchdown is something I love to bring to the game."
In 2008, the versatile receiver not only caught 42 passes for 609 yards, averaging 14.5 yards per catch, he also rushed for 202 yards.
Both teams have undoubtedly noted the 6-foot-4, 325-pound lineman's strong mix of talent and high character, but also his incredible durability. Brewster never missed a single snap for the Cardinals during his college career.
"I started and played 50 games, never missing a play," he said during a recent interview with Scout.com. "A lot of people have been surprised by that and couldn't believe it, but I just worked hard every day and kept on grinding. When it came to game time, there was no stopping me."
