Defensive lineman likely destined to disappear in the first round are Perry, Brockers, Cox, Quinton Coples of North Carolina, Melvin Ingram of South Carolina, Kendell Reyes of Connecticut, Jerel Worthy of Michigan State, Devon Still of Penn State, and Upshaw, who can play linebacker or end.
Five players who could sneak into the first round:
Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis — At 6-foot-4, 346 pounds, he can clog the middle by himself, but he is incredibly streaky. His workouts showed more talent than his game tapes.
Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor — Experienced receiver with lots of speed and the moves to be a factor from the slot. Excels after the catch.
Cordy Glenn, OT-G, Georgia — Started as a freshman in the SEC, which is impressive. Versatile and durable, outstanding in the run game.
Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State — A 28-year-old who played minor league baseball before college football. Brings maturity, accuracy and NFL-caliber arm strength and size.
Shea McClellin, LB, Boise State — Has the size to play inside or outside, and never backs down. Could also be a factor on special teams.
