NFL Draft '07: Scouting Baylor

After not playing in the post season since 1994 and having just a single prospect selected during the draft's first day over the past 10 years, Baylor looks to break both streaks this year. A seven win season is attainable for the Bears who have three draftable seniors on the roster.

Running back Paul Mosley is a powerful inside runner who picks up a lot of yardage off initial contact. Displaying both instincts and vision, Mosley is also solid receiver out of backfield and does a fine job picking up blocking assignments. He has the size to be a feature runner in the NFL and fast forty-times prior to next April's draft could push him into the first three rounds. Junior Brandon Whitaker offers a contrasting style as he is a slippery ball carrier with the ability to elude defenders. Running low to the ground, Whitaker will get consideration as a third-down back. Center Will Blaylock is quick and explosive on the pivot, blocking with excellent fundamentals and intelligence. Lacking top size and strength, he is not a powerful blocker who opens up the middle of the field but should get late round consideration. Dominique Zeigler has been Baylor's leading pass catcher the past two seasons. A solid possession wide out, Zeigler will get middle round consideration with solid 40-times next April. Quarterback Terrance Parks is a tremendous athlete with outstanding size and arm strength yet a signal caller who must improve his fundamentals. Offering tremendous upside and only a junior, Parks could be tried at tight end in the NFL

One the first punters selected in next April's draft will be Baylor's Daniel Sepulveda. Offering linebacker size and a strong leg, Sepulveda is a solid directional kicker who can flip the field. Possessing a career long 78-yard punt he has definite possibilities at the next level.
