A look at five “under the radar” type prospects who could be capable of making a move up draft boards this coming week at the NFL Combine…
ICONJohnson is versatile enough to drop into coverage.
DE Cam Johnson: Virginia (6-4, 270)
A solid college defensive end who has never been much of a sack artist but there are definitely some tools there. Showcases natural fluidity in his drop and in coverage and has the ability to mature into a more sudden pass rusher. Will get looks in both a 34 and 43 front and could be the Jabaal Sheard of the 2012 class.
SS Winston Guy Jr.: Kentucky (6-1, 216)
Still has some upside at the position, as he can tackle, displays solid range in space and above-average instincts in all areas of the game. Should be a heck of a special teams player early on and looks like a guy who can fight for playing time after a year or two of development.
OG Amini Silatolu: Midwestern State (6-3, 324)
He has some technique flaws that need to be fixed and will need to kick inside to guard at the next level. However, he's a wide-bodied athlete with a powerful/explosive frame, good foot quickness and can really pull from the backside. Might need some time, but is one of the top guards in the class with as much upside as any.
WR Kashif Moore: Connecticut (5-10, 175)
An undersized wide out with "plus" speed. Isn't real shifty in tight areas, is developing as a route runner and will struggle to get off press. Nevertheless, he’s got the top end seed to be a homerun threat every time he touches the football and could post one of the fastest times at the NFL Combine next week.
DE Scott Solomon: Rice (6-3, 270)
A better overall prospect in my mind than former Rice DL Cheta Ozougwu, who ended up being selected in the 7th round last year. He's a big kid who has some pass rush ability and the size to play the run. At worst looks like a guy who can come into camp and work his way into an NFL rotation.
