April 24, 2005 Day 1 Review and Day 2 Preview
BY: John Murphy

*We will have staff members in attendance at the NFL Draft, starting at 10:00AM Sunday, please feel free to provide us with a contact number, email, IM or any/all other ways to communicate with us throughout the weekend, especially on Sunday afternoon in the later rounds and then leading to the all important 1-2 hours following the draft when PFAs are being contacted and signed... one of the available IMs for our staff will be draftjm13... as well as calling (504) 415.9979.

*For those who have not followed or received the reports during the previous three drafts... during and after the DRAFT... you can send your prospect information ( that will be immediately sent out to all 32 NFL Teams... the example method for this process will be as follows: (School), (Position), (Name), (HT, WT, workout results and your (agent) best contact info either phone or email)... last year alone over 70 of the profiles that were sent out between rounds 6, 7 and post-draft saw the players be drafted, signed or added to a team's rookie mini-camp.

*An updated version of the "TEAM NEEDS" chart will appear in TODAY'S report... it will be made available again post-draft in preparation for PFA and FA signings... it is updated as of the first three rounds completed today and posted as of 11:30pm Saturday night.

*Any/all media requests for observations, player notes, draft pick reviews or profile/bio info on those players selected by your individual team can all be sent to please include your deadline or time frame, so they can all be addressed accordingly.


Here is a look at how each team's crop of draft picks breaks down for the upcoming second day of the NFL Draft... we have put the number of "Day Two" draft choices in parentheses next to each team's name... what this does is help you get an idea of when and where a team could look to move up or down during the draft... if your post-draft dinner plans get delayed you will be able to blame PHILADELPHIA, as they own three of the final ten choices in the seventh round of the draft (#245, #247 and #252)... oddly enough Philadelphia, New England, St. Louis and San Francisco will basically own the clock between picks #245 and #255, as they combine to own 9 of the final 10 selections of this year's draft... conversely, Green Bay (#180), Detroit (#184) and NY Giants (#186) will be able to packup early, as their final draft choices are in the sixth round.

NFL TEAM NEEDS (As of 4/24/05 -- RT means return man):

"God taught me a lot about humility today... all I can do is learn from this and take the opportunity that is now being presented to me... (I) get the chance to go learn from one of the best ever at the position I hope to play (in the NFL) one day, so you can't ask for a much better situation then that... (I) am just relieved that it is all over", explained Aaron Rodgers (California, QB) after spending nearly five hours in the green room before being selected by the Green Bay Packers at #24 of the first round.

was cleared by the NFL league office to be included into Saturday's draft after the NCAA decided earlier this week that he would not be eligible for the upcoming college season based on the fact that he missed time in 2001 with an injury, but review of his playing time that season revealed that he would not be credited with a medical red-shirt... an official letter was sent by the Morgan State head of compliance to the league office, and according to two sources he will be officially part of this weekend's draft... to date he has shown a good motor and better-than-advertised quickness for his size... has needed to be double-teamed on a regular basis... robust upper body... still shows good balance and quickness... more of a run stuffer, but can surprise blockers off the ball at times and shoot into the backfield for a sack or pressure... might need to shed a few pounds to be most effective... as he has played at between 330-340 pounds... ran 4.98/5.02 at 315 pounds... has been timed at 5.12/5.20 at his current weight, 355 pounds... another team has timed him between 5.40 and 5.50 at 358 pounds... has
averaged 40 tackles per season from his defensive tackle spot the past few years... born and raised in Washington D.C... will not turn 22 years old until 11/25/83... he is 6026, 355 pounds... #66 on game film.
