2008 NFL Draft Breakdown and Analysis

1st Round | 2nd Round | 3rd Round | 4th Round | 5th Round | 6th Rd | 7th Rd

1. Tony Fiammetta, Syracuse 6-0, 245
Pre-Combine Position Rank:
1
Post-Combine Skinny: He solidified himself as the top prospect with 30 reps on the bench and a 4.61 40. It was a tremendous performance.

Positives: Athletic for a fullback … Big-hitter … Extremely strong.
Negatives: Isn’t going to handle the ball … An average receiver …Not a runner.

2. Brannan Southerland, Georgia 6-0, 242
Pre-Combine Position Rank:
3
Post-Combine Skinny:
He was excellent. The power in the broad jump with a 10 foot leap, and a 28 rep bench made some noise, but the 4.68 really helped the cause.
Positives: Devastating blocker … Great goal line, short-yardage runner … Can catch a little.
Negatives: Not nimble … Purely a blocker at the next level.


3. Quinn Johnson, LSU 6-1, 246
Pre-Combine Position Rank:
2
Post-Combine Skinny: Looked quick at time, but was stunningly mediocre on the bench with just 16 lifts. The 4.86 40 was a disaster.

Positives: Former linebacker … Big, physical blocker … Hard-worker.
Negatives: Will never, ever carry the ball in the NFL … Not a receiver.


4. Eric Kettani, Navy 6-0, 225
Pre-Combine Position Rank:
4
Post-Combine Skinny:
Wasn't At The Combine
Positives: Great runner … Powerful ball-carrier who hits tacklers … Can be a special teamer.
Negatives: Commitment to the Navy … Not all that big and not an NFL blocker … Bad knees.

5. Brock Bolen, Louisville 6-0, 240
Pre-Combine Position Rank:
5
Post-Combine Skinny:
Wasn't At The Combine
Positives: A runner … Can be used like a big tailback for short stints .. A decent receiver who could be used in a variety of ways.
Negatives: Fine blocker, not special … Jack-of-all-trades, master of none.

6. Jorvorskie Lane, Texas A&M 5-11, 285
Pre-Combine Position Rank:
6
Post-Combine Skinny:
Wasn't At The Combine
Positives: Underutilized runner … Huge, for good and bad … A tailback in a guard’s body.
Negatives: Too big … TOO big … Weight is always going to be an issue … Isn’t the hardest of workers.
