We couldn't help but notice Bondurant was ranked higher by some scouts than we expected -- in the 3rd to 4th round area.....The link above notes nfldraftscout has him as the #11 senior free safety. Our league sources have Bondurant comfortably among the Top 5 senior free safeties going into his final season. Leaving the team is obviously something that could do real damage to his N.F.L. future, if he can't get on the field again in college.

Adam Drake and Andrew Robustelli top Draftdaddy.com's very early list of Top 10 Small School Wide Receivers.


DD.comment: At this early juncture, this seems to be a fairly solid group of small school wide receiver prospects. Top few players on our list are currently considered latter-round or priority free agent types. But, if history is any guide, the wide receivers that will rise quickest up draft boards are those that follow solid senior seasons with great speed displays at the Combine or Pro Day workouts. So, again, much can change going forward.

Most New York Giants fan should recognize the name Andrew Robustelli, as the fast-rising Jacksonville University star is the grandson of an N.F.L. Hall of Fame defensive end....As you can see from these scouting videos of Robustelli he usually lines up in the slot, even though he's listed at 6'3' and around 200 pounds. Most underrated aspect of his game might be his blocking prowess.

Adam Drake of Eastern Illinois put up monster numbers in 2013 and his stats could improve this season with Erik Lora gone. Losing Jimmy Garoppolo could hurt, but he will be replaced by New Mexico State transfer and pro prospect Andrew Manley....Sam Ajala of Fordham is another impressive small school prospect, who really reminds us of Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon. Question for scouts is whether Ajala can run as fast as Garcon, who possessed 4.45 speed and excellent quickness coming out of Mount Union?

2)Tyler Zimmer ~ Seton Hill University

3)Quinn Backus ~ Coastal Carolina University

4)Ronnell Williams ~ West Chester University

5)Dan Sullivan ~ Monmouth University

6)Isaiah Fleming ~ Cheyney University

7)Brian Sourber ~ Shippensburg University

8)Nick Richardson ~ Abiline Christian University

9)Davis Tull ~ University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (College Defensive End)

10)Blake Baker ~ Lenoir-Ryne College (College Defensive End)

Other Notables who have caught the attention of pro scouts:

Andrew Carter, South Carolina State (College Defensive End)

Justin Shirk, Bloomsburg University

Darius Allen, Colorado State-Pueblo University (College Defensive End)

Stephen Hodge, Fordham University

Kyle Emanuel, North Dakota State (College Defensive End)

DD.comment: Overall this appears to be a fairly mediocre group of small school linebacker prospects. LeRon Furr, an Oklahoma State transfer, heads the list and is currently considered a latter round prospect. But he's the type of player that could easily see his draft stock climb with a strong senior year and solid workouts. Off-field issues, which popped up while he was still at Oklahoma State, are something scouts will need to investigate.

Quinn Backus is ranked higher by most others (potential Day 3 pick), but his glaring lack of size (5'10", 215) is something that may concern scouts, if he can't project as a pro safety....Dan Sullivan, who was declared ineligible last season, is an interesting prospect to watch going forward due to his size, strength and athletic ability. Sullivan gained some Youtube attention with This Amazing 65 Inch Box Jump a few years ago.

2)Lynden Trail ~ Norfolk State University (Florida Transfer)

3)Ryan Delaire ~ Towson State University

4)Zach Wagenmann ~ University of Montana

8)Will Schwarz ~ Saginaw Valley State (Central Michigan Transfer)

9)Chris Randolph ~ Johnson C. Smith University

10)Adrian Dinkins ~ Delta State University

DD.comment: Overall this appears to be a fairly strong group of small school defensive end prospects, at least at the top. F.B.S. transfers LeBrandon Richardson and Lynden Trail both go into their senior seasons with Day 3 draft projections and fast-rising Towson star Ryan Delaire is right behind them, according to our league sources.

Zach Wagenmann is also a prospect that scouts like and could be the next Montana Grizzlies defensive star to be drafted. Mike Napolitano is a similar prospect to Wagenmann in terms of size and athletic ability, but just isn't getting as much attention at Wingate. At this point, he's seen as potential priority free agent....As we've noted before, much can change going forward, as these players must all impress as seniors, then fare well in all-star games and workouts if they hope to be drafted.

DD.comment: According to our excellent league sources, which we can't disclose, Carter was considered T.C.U.'s top rated senior prospect by many scouts, even with his recent off-field issues. Per our info, Carter was projected as a 4th to 5th round talent heading into his senior season. But, as is the case with all wide receiver prospects, they can rise fast (or drop quickly) based on Combine workouts/40 yard dash times....Nonetheless, being such a problem that you're kicked off our college team is not a good thing and this might really put his promising pro career in jeopardy.

Our rankings continue: Top Senior Small School Tight End Prospects (Bio/Stats links included):

1) Wesley Powell ~ Tusculum College

2) MyCole Pruitt ~ Southern Illinois (Potential N.F.L. H-Back)

3) Nick Boyle ~ University of Delaware

4) Will Tye ~ Stony Brook (Florida State Transfer)

5) Lucas Hefty ~ Upper Iowa University (Potential N.F.L. H-Back)

6) Harold Spears ~ University of New Hampshire

7) Neal Sterling ~ Monmouth University

8) Matt Lengel ~ Eastern Kentucky

9) Sean Fitzpatrick ~ University of Richmond (North Carolina Transfer)

DD.comment: Overall this does not appear to be a real strong group of small school tight end prospects. Powell and Pruitt are the only two going into their senior years that are currently deemed latter round picks and a few prospects we ranked near the bottom of our list will need real strong final college seasons just to get onto the radar of scouts as undrafted free agents.

As we noted, Powell and Pruitt seem to be the clear cut top two at this point, but both have size issues -- Powell is tough, nimble and athletic and many scouts like the former high school basketball star a lot. But how many players even close to 6' 10" have we seen in the N.F.L. over the years?...Pruitt, on the other hand, is listed at 6' 3" and 250 pounds, so it's more likely he'd have to make the N.F.L. as an H-Back or fullback. And not too many true H-Backs or fullbacks get drafted these days....Nick Boyle from Delaware, who possess prototypical size for an N.F.L. tight end, really came on strong as a junior and is a player we intend to keep a close eye on this season.

DD.comment: Draft Daddy has been around since 2004 (blogging and ranking prospects) and we can not remember a group of small school N.F.L. safety prospects as poor as last seasons crop (2014 draft)....That should change for the 2015 Draft, as there are at least 5 or 6 senior small school safeties that are currently considered potential 7th round picks (or better).....Jaquiski Tartt, who is projected in the 4th to 5th round area by scouts right now, leads the way. Tartt is certainly the type of prospect that could rise even higher up the draft boards with a strong senior year and excellent post-season perfomances.

8) Justin Worley ~ University of Tennessee

9) Hutson Mason ~ University of Georgia

10) Devin Gardner ~ University of Michigan

DD.comment: At this point, and it's still very early in the process, Petty and Mannion lead the pack of seniors by a pretty wide margin. Both are considered top 60 overall picks.....After that, every quarterback we listed above is going into their senior year with (at best) a 4th to 6th round projection....That said, Bo Wallace is a guy we intend to watch very closely as a potential fast-riser due to his size and arm strength. But Wallace needs to put the shoulder issues that have negatively affected his play each of the past two seasons behind him as a senior....Braxton Miller is a prospect some scouts view as a future pro quarterback. Many N.F.L. evaluators, however, have him listed as a possible N.F.L. tailback after running for more than 3,000 yards and 32 touchdowns the last 3 three years.

Our rankings continue: Top Senior Small School Running Back Prospects (Bio/Stats links included):

1) Zach Zenner ~ South Dakota State

2) Hank McCloud ~ Furman University

3) Rob Holloman ~ Central Connecticut (Kent State Transfer)

4) Tarell Watson ~ Azusa Pacific

5) Shaikel Davis ~ Mars Hill University

6) Malcom Agnew ~ Southern Illinois (Oregon State Transfer)

7) Tyler Tonderum ~ Southwest Minnesota State

8) Damarcus James ~ Jacksonville State

9) John Crokett ~ North Dakota State

10a) David Johnson ~ Northern Iowa

10b) Jake Cimolino ~ Colorado Mesa

DD.comment: At this point, Zach Zenner, who rushed for over 2,000 yards as a sophomore and junior, is probably the top rated small school tailback prospect for most teams. Last two years Zenner ran for 183 yards and 203 against F.B.S. schools Kansas and Nebraska -- (almost 9 yards per carry). Imagine how Zach would've fared against Kansas and Nebraska running behind a Big 12 or Big 10 caliber offensive line? We have very little doubt he could be a star tailback for just about any top 40 B.C.S. school...Nonetheless, Zenner is only rated as a borderline 7th round pick at this time, meaning all the others below him are currently viewed as undrafted free agents.

Again, things can change going forward. No reason Zenner or some others in the group we listed can't significantly improve their draft stock with strong senior seasons, coupled with impressive displays at all-star games and great workouts (40 times) at the Combine or at Pro Days...Tarell Watson is also a player we like. Last November Pro Football Hall Famer Jackie Slater compared him to several N.F.L. legends in this Los Angeles Times Feature Story.

DD.comment: Nice job by the Football.com writer in ranking the prospects from the M.A.C. His predictions seem very sound and it's the type of article we like linking in our blog....Using our league sources, we've posted DD.com's 'way too early' list of the top senior prospects from the M.A.C., with hulking Buffalo Bulls offensive tackle Jake Silas leading the way.

With a lot of help from several good friends, who are very well connected to pro scouts and player personnel men, we began the process of ranking the senior prospects, position-by-position.....Hopefully the rankings we post in the next few weeks will give fans a fairly accurate snapshot of how many N.F.L. scouts currently view the top senior prospects -- none of our sources will go on record regarding the underclassmen.

Doesn't mean things won't change significantly by next year, as the top players still have to stay healthy, perform well as seniors and impress at all-star games, the Combine and personal workouts. Nothing is guaranteed, even for the currently top rated prospects.

***

Today our rankings continue: Top Senior Fullbacks (Bio/Stats links included):

1) Jalston Fowler ~ University of Alabama

2) Trayion Durham ~ Kent State (Tailback/Fullback)

3) Hunter Joyer ~ University of Florida

4) Joey Iosefa ~ University of Hawaii

5) Malcolm Johnson ~ Mississippi State (H-Back/Fullback)

6) Mark Weisman ~ University of Iowa (Tailback/Fullback)

7) Joe Bergeron ~ University of Texas (Tailback/Fullback)

8) Aaron Ripkowski ~ Oklahoma University (Classic Blocking Back)

9) Jimmay Mundine ~ Kansas University (H-Back/Fullback)

10) Jeremy Meyers ~ Southeastern Louisiana (H-Back/Fullback)

DD.comment: Per our info, Jalston Fowler is currently the only senior fullback that carries a solid draftable grade. Going into his final college season, he's considered a 4th to 5th round pick. Joyer and Durham are behind him, with pre-season (borderline) 7th round grades. After that, it's mostly a collection of bigger tailbacks (with less than ideal speed?) and smallish college tight ends projected as possible pro fullbacks who make up our very early list.

***

Top Honorable Mentions:

Amarlo Herrera ~ University of Georgia

Ben Heeney ~ Kansas University

Curtis Grant ~ Ohio State University

Henry Coley ~ University of Virginia

Ryan Hofmeister ~ California, Los Angeles

***

The top 3 inside linebackers we listed (Kendricks, DePriest and Perryman) all go into their senior seasons with fairly high grades -- top few rounds. Johnson, Tarpley, Plummer and Hager make up the next tier...After that, the next 15 or 20 prospects are pretty much all bunched together as middle-to-latter round picks and priority free agent types...A prospect in that last group that caught our eye is Ryan Hofmeister of U.C.L.A. The fact that he's seen as a possible 7th round pick is a bit of a surprise, considering he's mostly been a special teams standout for the Bruins. We are not sure, however, if N.F.L. teams view him mainly as a future core special teams ace (ala Larry Izzo), or if they think he can grow into a serviceable N.F.L. outside linebacker?

***

Senior center Andy Gallik makes CBS Sports draft writer's list of the Top Prospects from Boston College.

DD.comment: Our sources tell us, at this point, N.F.L. scouts consider guard Bobby Vardaro and cornerback Manuel Asprilla as B.C.'s top senior prospects. Both are currently regarded as 7th round (at best) to free agent types....But, as we've noted many times it's still real early in the evaluation process and things can change significantly going forward.

Today our Senior rankings continue with the Top Small School Quarterback Prospects (Bio/Stats links included):

1) Bryan Bennett ~ Southeastern Louisiana (Oregon Transfer)

2) Quinn Epperly ~ Princeton (Tailback/Receiver Prospect?)

3) Chris Bonner ~ Colorado State-Pueblo

4) Max Shortell ~ Jacksonville State (Minnesota Transfer)

5) Kevin Rodgers ~ Henderson State

6) Andrew Manley ~ Eastern Illinois (New Mexico State Transfer)

7) Austin Sumner ~ South Dakota State

8) Paul Jones ~ Robert Morris (Penn State Transfer)

9) Kevin Arduino ~ American International College

10a) Damien Fleming ~ Florida A&M

10b) Mike Nebrich ~ Fordham University (Connecticut Transfer)

***

Others Worthy of Honorable Mention:

Devontae Payne ~ Findlay College (Eastern Michigan Transfer)

Trent Hurley ~ Delaware (Bowling Green Transfer)

Taylor Heinicke ~ Old Dominion

Mike Perish ~ Indiana State (Western Michigan transfer)

DD.comment: At very this early stage, Bryan Bennett, a transfer from Oregon, is the only small school senior quarterback prospect that is clearly expected to be drafted next spring. He is way ahead of the pack, but that doesn't mean things can't change, as most of the players in our top 10 possess solid pro size, arm strength and have the potential to raise their stock significantly with a strong senior year.

We've been told Quinn Epperly of Priceton, who was recruited to play quarterback at Texas A&M and is an outstanding athlete, is getting plenty of attention as a potential N.F.L. running back or wide receiver prospect. Some are even comparing him to Rich Gannon, an athletic quarterback at Division 1-AA Delaware, who was selected in the 4th round of the 1988 draft by the Patriots as a running back. Epperly is currently viewed as a possible latter round draft pick...Damien Fleming, Taylor Heinicke and Mike Nebrich, who are not ranked as high as Epperly, are also considered excellent athletes, who could garner looks at other positions, if N.F.L. teams don't see them as viable pro quarterback prospects.

With the last draft completed, we've decided to start ranking the seniors for the 2015 N.F.L. Draft. With a lot of help from several good friends, who are very well connected to pro scouts and player personnel men, we recently began the process of ranking the senior prospects, position-by-position.....Hopefully the rankings we post in the next few weeks will give fans a fairly accurate snapshot of how many N.F.L. scouts currently view the top senior prospects -- none of our sources will go on record regarding the underclassmen.

Today we will kickoff our ranks with the Top Senior Cornerbacks (Bio/Stats links included):

1) Ifo Ekpre-Olomu ~ University of Oregon

2) Wayne Lyons ~ Stanford University

3) Josh Shaw ~ Southern California

4) Tim Scott ~ North Carolina (Free Safety/Cornerback)

5) Steven Nelson ~ Oregon State

6) Deshazor Everett ~ Texas A&M

7) Quandre Diggs ~ University of Texas

8) Cam Thomas ~ Western Kentucky

9) Damian Swann ~ University of Georgia

10) Byron Jones ~ University of Connecticut

***

Top Honorable Mentions:

Adrian Amos Penn State (Free Safety/Cornerback)

Ladarius Gunter ~ Miami

Demetrious Nicholson ~ Virginia

Doran Grant ~ Ohio State

Cody Riggs ~ Notre Dame

DD.comment: At this point, and it's still very early, Ifo Ekpre-Olomu and Wayne Lyons are ranked ahead of all the other senior cornerbacks by a fairly wide margin. Both seem to be in that first round area.
