Post 2014 Draft picks
Round 1- 19th pick- OT Ja'Wuan James, Tennessee

Prepped in Georgia. Enrolled in January 2010 and immediately took ownership of the right tackle position. Started all 49 games of his career (2010-13), setting a school record for career starts by an offensive lineman. Sprained his knee during Senior Bowl practice.


Strengths
Outstanding size, girth and overall body mass. Good hand placement. Can steer and control blockers once he gets his hands on them. Very patient pass protector. Matches up very well vs. size and power (see Alabama). Battle-tested, experienced four-year starter in the SEC. Outstanding personal and football character. Very smart, mature and highly respected.

Weaknesses
Raw footwork. Has a lot of heaviness in body and can improve sustain. Lumbers to the second level and struggles to cut off and adjust to moving targets. Does not roll off the ball with power and generate strength or movement in the run game.

Bottom Line
Big, strong, heavy pass protector with good balance, anchor strength and hand use to handle power and speed. Does not affect the run game the same way and almost appears more destined for the left side in the pros. Has instant-starter potential.

Round 2- 50th (18) pick- Traded to San Diego
Round 2- 57th (25) pick - From San Diego- Traded to San Fran.

Round 2- 63rd (31) pick- From San Fran.- WR Jarvis Landry, LSU

Strengths: Good balance and body control. Savvy route runner -- uses stems and nods and works back to throws. Confident hands-catcher -- snatches throws off his frame. Extends and high points. Attacks throws and wins "50-50" balls. Makes some spectacular, acrobatic grabs. Good concentration and toughness over the middle. Does not go down without a fight after the catch. Willing blocker. Lined up outside and inside. Likes to compete and it shows. Has special-teams experience covering kicks. Team captain.

Weaknesses: Has a fairly lean frame -- could stand to bulk up and get stronger in order to combat the jam. Lacks elite explosiveness and top-end speed -- does not have an extra gear to take the top off. Average line release, acceleration and suddenness. Could struggle to separate vs. quick-twitch cornerbacks. Large percentage of catches are contested. Lacks ideal height and is not a great leaper. Started just 12 career games.

Draft Projection Rounds 2-3

Bottom Line: Polished, quarterback-friendly, sure-handed possession receiver with a flare for the highlight-reel catch. Could be an effective No. 3 option, capable of lining up as a "Z" or slot, working short-to-intermediate and beating zone coverage.

Round 3- 81st (17) pick- OT- Billy Turner, NDSU

Round 4- 125th (25) pick- From San Diego- CB-Walt Aikens, Liberty

Round 5- 155th (15) pick- TE- Arthur Lynch, Georgia

Round 5, 171st (31) -From San Fran.- OLB Jordan Tripp, Montana

Round 6- 190th (14) pick- WR Matt Hazel, Coastal Carolina

Round 7- 234th (19) pick- DE Terrence Fede, Marist

Watch out for Jordan Tripp. I am looking for this kid to challenge for a linebacker spot. Plus he is a special teams guy. Four year starter in college and is a productive backer.
