DeMarcus Love - Arkansas (HT: 6-5 - WT: 312) Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 1 of 20
Positives: Athletic... Versatile... Good size and long arms... Very solid pass blocker... Can fire off the ball and set up extremely quick, when he's paying attention to the snap... Reasonably good feet, lateral movement and slide... Good blocking range... Good hand placement... Very solid run blocker... Fires off the ball, gets into his blocks quickly... Solid strength at POA... Can lock on to defender and move them from the action... Can get to the second level... Good flexibility and body control... Generally breaks down well in space... Mean streak, tough... Can look both great and pedestrian in the same game, boom or bust.
Negatives: Frustratingly inconsistent... Narrow base, can be knocked off balance and moved off point... Bends at the waist... Looks top heavy... Will occasionally lunge into his blocks on the move and lose his balance... Not an especially good finisher... Rolls off too many blocks... Doesn't always dominate at POA... Initial kick step can be bouncy... Inconsistent kick slide, either overextends or steps are to narrow... Either way, he loses his balance trying to reach the edge... Leans into the defender, too much of a catcher... Gets to upright in pass protection... Inconsistent footwork and technique and lack of balance will necessitate a move to Guard... Kind of a boom or bust type prospect.
(January 17, GBNReport.com) --
Auburn has announced that junior WR Darvin Adams has applied to the NFL to enter the 2011 draft. Adams led the Tigers in receiving this past season
when he had 52 catches for almost a 1,000 yards and seven TDs.
Underclassmen had until Saturdayís deadline to apply for early entry to the draft, but names are still dribbling out as no one is obliged to actually make an announcement at that time.
