Kendrick Alexander S 2 5Sr FA Tough, run defending safety coming off a solid campaign.  Best in the box with the action in front of him.
Bobby Blackshire S 4 4Sr FA Marginally sized safety with minimal ball skills.  
Nick Graham S 22 4Sr FA Tough zone safety with good instincts.  Utility defensive back who could be used in dime situations at the next level.
Jeff Perrett T 78 5Sr FA Size prospect with marginal strength and athleticism.

Casey Evans S 31 5Sr FA Tough, run defending safety with poor size/speed numbers.
Brett Ratliff QB 15 4Sr 6/7 Nice sized passer with a good arm.  Offers a degree of upside and the tools to play in the NFL if he improves his mechanics/fundamentals.
Paul Soliai DT 90 4Sr 3/4 Mammoth interior defender drawing comparisons to Haloti Ngata in scouting circles.  Coming off a breakout campaign and a fast riser up draft boards.
Kelly Talavou DT 98 5Sr FA Quick interior plugger with potential as a rotational lineman.
Tavo Tupola T 78 5Sr FA Overaged college blocker with marginal skills in space.
Eric Weddle S 32 4Sr FA Slightly overrated defensive back whose instincts and mental intangibles will help him make it.
