Dallas Baker WR 5Sr 81 5/6 Solid possession wide out and a terrific red-zone target.  The faster he runs prior to the draft the higher he will be selected.

Tate Casey TE 3Jr 84 5/6 Solid prospect on the sidelines with a knee injury.

Brian Crum OLB 5Sr 13 FA Undersized prospect who needs a lot of work.

Steve Rissler G 4Sr 79 FA Nice sized blocker with potential as a utility lineman.
Brandon Siler ILB 3So 40 3/4 Explosive run defender best in the box.  Will seek advice from the NFL Advisory Committee on his draft grade.

Kirk Barton T 74 3Jr 3/4 Made the correct move staying in college.  Big, strong right tackle prospect who does not move well.

Antonio Pittman RB 25 3Jr 3rd
Smallish, elusive ball carrier best as a situational runner at the next level.
Jay Richardson DE 99 5Sr 3/4 Undersized and underrated collegiate pass rusher with growth potential. Coming off a terrific campaign, his first as a starter.
