Name Pos # Yr Rnd Comments
Keyunta Dawson DE 96 4Sr FA Explosive college pass rusher with linebacker size.
Joel Filani WR 8 5Sr 5/6 Nice sized wide out coming off a breakout season.  Proved himself to be an outstanding red-zone threat this year.  Must run well prior to the draft or he will fall into the late rounds.
Gabe Hall G 78 5Sr FA
Jarrett Hicks WR 88 5Sr 4/5
Athletic wide out who makes the important and spectacular reception.  Missed six games while the NCAA ruled on his eligibility.  Potential number two receiver at the next level.
Robert Johnson WR 9 5Sr 7th Reliable possession wide out with poor speed.
Manny Ramirez G 63 5Sr 4/5 Wide bodied blocker who works hard and plays with a nasty attitude.  Solid guard prospect who may need time adjusting to an NFL system.
Kenyon Scott DT 99 4Sr FA
