I would go further than Walt did on our D-Line and give us one star. Benson Mayowa & Ryan Russell are our starting DEs for at least 4 games and they have 1 1/2 sacks between them & Irving who may have to rotate in. Gregory looks like he's possibly done for the year and Lawrence had issues at Boise so it's not like this is new territory for him even though this is his first suspension. We should've picked Ramsey and looked heavily at DL but we are going with Mayowa & Russell. Our pass rush will absolutely suck unless Russell shows big improvement and Mayowa becomes more than he has been so far.
Drake Nevis, DT, LSU - Scouting Report
Height: 6-1. Weight: 298. Projected 40 Time: 4.92. Combine 40 Time: 4.97. Pro Day 40 Time: 4.92. Benchx225: 31. Vertical: 30.5. Arm: 31 1/2. Projected Round (2011): 2-3. 3/15/11: Drake Nevis measured in four pounds heavier at his Pro Day than he did at the Combine, but was still able to drop his 40 time by 0.05.
Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU - Scouting Report
Height: 6-0. Weight: 218. Projected 40 Time: 4.44. Combine 40 Time: 4.32. Pro Day 40 Time: DNP. Benchx225: 15. Vertical: 38. Arm: 32. Projected Round (2011): Top 4 Pick. 3/15/11: Patrick Peterson didn't run the 40 or anything at his Pro Day, but he looked great in the drills once again. He scheduled a private workout with the Denver Broncos. At this point, it'll be a major upset if Peterson falls out of the top four picks.
