 Name Pos # Yr Rnd Comments
Robert Felton G 61 4Jr 5/6 Strong, small area blocker.
Marcus Harrison DT 55 3Jr 4/5 Explosive plugger who can be used on the nose or as a conventional defensive tackle.  Good upside but comes off a poor season.
Peyton Hillis FB 22 3Jr 5/6 Blue collar lead blocker.  Out of the game with injury.
Keith Jackson DT 99 4Sr 6/7 Active lineman limited by size.  Hustles and makes a lot of plays on the ball.  Potential three-technique lineman or rotational player on a front four.
Marcus Monk WR 85 3Jr 1/2 Big play receiver with outstanding size.  Tremendous red-zone threat.  The faster he runs the earlier he'll be drafted.
Sam Olajubutu OLB 24 5Sr 6/7 Ultra-productive college linebacker who stands just 5-feet-9-inches.  Could be used in a one gap system.  Has a special teams mentality.
Stephen Parker G 74 5Sr FA Wide-bodied, small area blocker who controls opponents at the point.
Desmond Sims OLB 23 5Sr FA Athletic linebacker with solid size/speed numbers but limited football productivity.  Developmental prospect.
Mason Templeton TE 89 4Jr FA  
Tony Ugoh T 66 5Sr 4/5 Fluid tackle with nice size.  More of a finesse' blocker than a mauler.  Will draw a diverse variety of opinions as we move towards the draft.
Darius Vinnett CB 9 4Sr FA Athletic corner with sprinters speed.  Fast enough to get a look in camp.
Cedric Washington WR 10 5Sr FA  

Wisconsin
