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.
Mike Blanc, DE/DT, Auburn
Height: 6-3. Weight: 281. Projected 40 Time: 5.01. Combine 40 Time: DNP. Pro Day 40 Time: 5.00. Benchx225: . Vertical: . Arm: . Projected Round (2011): 6-FA. 3/9/11: Mike Blanc measured in an inch shorter than he was listed at Auburn. This hurts his chances of being drafted.
Nick Fairley, DE/DT, Auburn
Height: 6-4. Weight: 297. Projected 40 Time: 4.95. Combine 40 Time: 4.82. Pro Day 40 Time: DNP. Benchx225: . Vertical: 31. Arm: 34 3/4. Projected Round (2011): Top 8 Pick. 3/9/11: Nick Fairley is back into the No. 2 pick conversation after a fantastic Pro Day. Fairley, now 297 pounds, showed tremendous footwork in the drills, prompting the ESPN3 crew to say that he looks like a 250-pound linebacker. Todd McShay, in particular, was overly giddy, going as far to say that he would be willing to carry Fairley's child.
Cameron Newton, Auburn - Scouting Report
Height: 6-5. Weight: 244. Projected 40 Time: 4.64. Combine 40 Time: 4.58. Pro Day 40 Time: DNP. Hand: 9 7/8. Projected Round (2011): Top 3 Pick. 3/9/11: Prior to his Pro Day workout, Cam Newton approached Gil Brandt and said, "I let you down at the Combine. I'll make up for it today." Newton did just that, completing 50-of-60 passes in windy conditions. Three to five of the incompletions were drops. Todd McShay, a renowned Newton detractor, remarked that Newton really improved. It's really hard to imagine Newton falling out of the top three.
Terrell Zachery, WR, Auburn
Height: 5-11. Weight: 205. Projected 40 Time: N/A. Combine 40 Time: DNP. Pro Day 40 Time: 4.44. Benchx225: . Vertical: . Arm: . Projected Round (2011): 7-FA. 3/9/11: Terrell Zachary is all about the number 4. He caught 44 balls in 2010 and ran a 4.44 at Auburn's Pro Day. He may have caught someone's attention.
Lee Ziemba, G/OT, Auburn
Height: 6-6. Weight: 317. Projected 40 Time: 5.15. Combine 40 Time: 5.47. Pro Day 40 Time: 5.44. Benchx225: 20. Arm: 34. Projected Round (2011): 4-6.
Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas - Scouting Report
Height: 6-7. Weight: 247. Projected 40 Time: 5.05. Combine 40 Time: DNP. Pro Day 40 Time: 5.36. Hand: 10 3/4. Projected Round (2011): 2-4. 3/9/11: Ryan Mallett had a fantastic Pro Day, prompting some of the NFL Network crew to speculate that he could be drafted in the first round. Mallett would be a top-five pick if it weren't for his lack of intelligence, arrogant attitude and "alleged" drug use.
