Tomlin, Colbert, Haley, Butler, Montgomery, et al. all in attendance.

Don't see any R1 guys for us, unless they're looking at RB Lamar Miller, and IMO that's a big stretch.  Looks more like some R2-4 types and some late round value guys.

OLB Sean Spence is very interesting, but I think he'd project here as a R2 SS or possibly ILB.  Size is a concern if ILB, otherwise he's got the instincts and playmaking for either spot.

OG Brandon Washington ain't my fave, but as a R3-4 pickup he'd be OK.

The WRs and TEs look like they'd need development in a big way, which is fine because they're likely to be WR4/5 and TE3 anyway.  Tommy Streeter could be a very interesting R4 acquisition at 6'5" and 4.40 speed.  Not quite the 4.28 Wally speed, but that size could be valuable in the RZ.

A 6'5" guy w/ 4.4 speed would be a nightmare for CBs, I reckon.

Gets jammed at the line.  Without a clean break, 4.4 speed isn't 4.4 speed.  But I think Scotty Montgomery has done a pretty damned good job with the newbies, so maybe he can teach one of these late rounders to be the newest threat?  Who knows.

The more I look at the Miami guys, the less I like.  Washington is sorta the PS OL rhino mold, maybe slightly better, but there's so much more ranked above and actually below him.

Streeter, drops.  Learn to catch.  Probably overrated.  Like Greg Childs as a size/speed guy better.

That tall skinny WR/KR Benjamin was one of the biggest theats I can remember going against as an FSU. No clue what his projection for the draft is but I like his future if given a shot.
