'06 NFL Draft Watch: Colorado State

A perennial participant in the post season, Colorado State comes off a losing campaign yet the outlook is bright for 2005. The Rams have several talented seniors who are all late round selections. 

  Scouting the M-West: Colorado State 

Receiver David Anderson has been a consistent and productive player the past three years.  Quickly releasing off the line, Anderson displays excellent eye\hand coordination and gets vertical to grab the errant throw.  Selling routes, he settles into the open spot on the field and makes himself an available target.  Marginally sized, he presents himself as a fourth wide out who must produce returning punts at the next level.  Offensive lineman Mike Brisiel is a strong blocker who turns defenders off the line.  Lacking balance and ability in space, Brisiel has potential as a strong side tackle in the NFL.  Tight end Matt Bartz moves into the starting line-up and though a solid blocker, he must show consistency as a pass catcher to get a serious look by NFL-scouts.  Albert Bimper is a consistent blocker at center yet a prospect with marginal size\speed numbers.  Quarterback Justin Holland is a good athlete with an adequate arm but a thrower with marginal accuracy. 

On defense the top prospect could be junior Luke Adkins, an athletic outside linebacker who displays top solid sideline-to-sideline range.  Flying around the football and working to make positive plays, Adkins has potential on the weak side.  Safety Ben Stratton is a physical run defender with a burst of closing speed.  Not efficient and possessing just limited ball skills, Stratton could be productive in a two-deep/zone system.
