Draft Tribune: Your Draft Authority

Combine: Sunday Notes

Posted by Administrator On February - 23 - 2009

Andre Brown, the big bruiser from North Carolina State, ran an extremely impressive 4.49-forty. While he has missed time due to injuries, he is looking more and more like a second round pick. The San Francisco 49ers have reportedly shown interest in the big fella’.

One player that has showed extreme confidence is former Wake Forest cornerback Alphonso Smith. While he lacks the height, he doesn’t lack the talk plus he can back it up with his play on the field. On Sunday, Alphonso Smith told the media that he was the best cornerback available. Several teams seem to be extremely interested in him, including the Seahawks, Raiders, Falcons, and Broncos.

Former Alabama walk-on Rashad Johnson, a safety prospect, met with several teams. Those that showed interest include Cincinnati, San Diego, Cleveland, and Atlanta.

The brother of Vernon Davis, cornerback Vontae Davis, had to answer questions clouding his character.

Ten NFL teams showed interest in former Southern Cal defensive tackle Fili Moala. Moala improved his production from a year ago but still seemed sluggish on the interior at times. Those that talked with this former Trojan include the Cowboys and the Steelers.

Former Ohio State Buckeye Malcolm Jenkins emphatically stated that he would rather play safety than cornerback on the next level.

Former Missouri wide receiver Jeremy Maclin suffered a hyper extended left knee but admitted than most of the pain came from his right hip. He will still work out at his pro day near the end of March.

Stephen Hodge, the former TCU defensive back, was asked by some teams to try out at outside linebacker. We also seen this with former Oklahoma safety Nic Harris.

By the way they are acting, the Atlanta Falcons seem to be pursuing a defensive back. We currently have them slated to draft former Western Michigan safety Louis Delmas, but as you can see from our notes, they have been talking to many other defensive backs as well.
