Tori Gurley - South Carolina (HT: 6-5 - WT: 230) Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 25 of 50
Positives: Elite size, one of the largest receivers in this class... Great hands, did not drop a single pass in 2010... Solid route runner... Plays in the middle of the field, is fine taking a hit... Extremely physical, likes to push people around... Has the size, frame, and physicality to be a great blocker... Good vertical receiver, times his jumps well... Strong body, will be a great red zone threat, shields defenders from the ball.
Negatives: Marginal speed, takes awhile for him to get to top speed and he does not have breakaway ability... Below-average after the catch, not elusive, gets run down from behind... Did not post great numbers in college, only had 905 career yards and six career touchdowns... Still a bit raw as a prospect... Seemed to fade towards the end of the year, only had five catches over his last four games... May be asked to gain weight and move to tight end... Will turn 24 during his rookie season... Would have liked to see him return to school to refine his game a bit, but his mother has financial problems that he wants to help with, combined with his age forced his hand.

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 Saturday�s 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.
