OG Isaac Asiata, No. 54/68, is a very stout and thick offensive guard at 6'3" - 323 pounds. A true human road grader, Asiata bestows adequate size, excellent strength, athleticism, instincts, and fair agility. Very powerful and strong mauler type offensive guard, Asiata plays with the nastiness and toughness all the way to the whistle. He stays square and excels in run-blocking quickly engaging and mauling his way riding defenders with explosion and power. He shows a good anchor with fair lateral movement and fair footwork in pass protection (a lot of stiffness in his game). He has a heavy and powerful punch that jolts defenders, and shows fair technique. Asiata has the versatility to play all interior spots and has experience at right tackle, but will fit best as a guard prospect at the next level (best used inside of a phone book). Ideal scheme fit in a heavy run oriented offense. Wears No. 68 in honor of his injured teammate, J.J. Dielman.
*DT Lowell Lotulelei, No. 93, is an impenetrable plugger in the middle that eats double-teams and stuffs run lanes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The younger brother to Carolina Panthers' first round draft-pick Star Lotulelei, Lowell is a thick vending machine sized naturally strong prospect with an impressive game. He showcases an excellent combination of size, quickness, power, awareness, balance, and strength. Lotulelei excels as a run defender anchoring the middle with his huge lower half easily capable of handling multiple blockers with active violent hands, tree trunk arms (short limbs), ideal strength, and a solid stout base dominating front-side block at the point of attack. Although not overly athletic, Lotulelei displays quick feet, impressive agility for his size, sound leverage, fluid lateral movement navigating through the trash, and great strength in shedding blocks motoring down the line making impact plays defending against back-side blocks. A stout run defender, Lotulelei displays surprising pass rush ability utilizing his quickness to split gaps, strength and technique with an impressive swim move to break through the offensive line, and an intensive high-motor with a continuous effort. An ideal nose guard in the 49ers 3-4.

SS John Johnson, No. 9, 6'0" - 202 lbs., 4.54 40 - (5th-6th)
QB Patrick Towles, No. 8, is a very large thick-bodied quarterback (6'5" - 253 lbs.) with a big arm and sneaky athleticism. Towles operates under center and in shotgun displaying good decision making and does a fair job reading defenses pre snap. He has a elongated delivery yet displays good zip on his throws. Will need to learn to climb the ladder rather than escape the pocket after initial read is taken away (very quick to scramble and take advantage of his athleticism). Not overly athletic out of the pocket, but moves well for a man his size taking advantage of his thickness running hard behind his pads. He's too quick to bail out of the pocket tucking the ball to run instead of keeping his eyes downfield when scrambling. Towles has a very strong arm with sporadic accuracy (very inconsistent spraying a lot of his throws), but he does show good trajectory, ball placement, and touch, as well as a willingness to sneak it into tight windows when working in a clean pocket. He has fair footwork in the pocket showing good sliding within the pocket, but is heavy footed at times. Decent pocket presence with some patience, but when pressured gets antsy and will have poor mechanics, does not re-establish his base, has a tendency to throw off his back foot and not step into his throws. Very good and accurate on short and intermediate passes. Has a lively arm with explosion on deep passes with good touch and ball placement skills. Will need to learn to generate more power from base with legs and hips rather than being more of an arm thrower, balls have a tendency to lose velocity. Needs to improve technique, because he often throws off a poor base.
OLB Matt Milano, No. 28, is an aggressive run and chase type high-motored linebacker playing sideline-to-sideline with tremendous instincts and awareness. He has good quickness, agility, and change of direction skills playing with aggression, excellent tackling technique, shows good short area quickness with nice lateral movement to quickly move around side-stepping defenders easily going through the trash. Milano shows strength in taking on blockers straight on and good hand technique in stacking and shedding. Good coverage skills with nice hip flexibility and ball skills, and is a great blitzer wreaking havoc in the backfield. Displays a high football IQ, good quickness and burst, along with sound technique and physical play to make plays on a consistent level. Moreover, he is a disruptive force on special teams.

*RB Dalvin Cook, No. 4, is a dominant threat for the Seminoles and is arguably one of the best running backs in the nation. Cook displays a smoothness to his game with excellent instincts, versatility, and big-play waiting to happen at any time threat. His vision, patience, and feel for the game is tremendously impressive, showcasing a nice suddenness in traffic with elite tackle-breaking slippery skills similar to a snake sliding through the grass, and the capacity to hit the home run whenever he touches the ball. Cook showcases an excellent ability to run inside and outside (excellent lateral agility) making consecutive moves in a short area and does not break down when making cuts. Displays great skills as a pass catcher extending arms to make the catch, and does a fair job in pass protection (area in need of improvement). Cook's amazing talent, determined work ethic, and desire for continued improvement will bode well for him at the next level. Shows the versatility to succeed in both zone and gap schemes.
*WR Travis Rudolph, No. 15, was a highly touted recruit out of high school that has developed nicely over the years. Rudolph displays a great combination of size, speed, and athleticism with impressive suddenness in his game and the ability to break in and out of cuts showing the speed and quickness to separate from defensive backs. The junior is not really a physical receiver, but has impressive toughness with the ability to make plays taking advantage of short passes and turning them into big gains. He also shows great ball skills, good hands, and the ability to elevate for the football in traffic and in the end zone.
*OT Roderick Johnson, No. 77, is a highly aggressive road grader mauling through defenses with his brute physicality, size, and strength. The junior boasts great length with a large wing span, impressive athleticism, and relatively light feet for a man his size. Johnson has the mindset and physicalness of a nasty guard, but showcases good athleticism and decent foot speed to slide laterally and adjust to movement. Although a dominant force as a run blocker - displaying tremendous toughness finishing off blocks all the way to the whistle - Johnson is inconsistent in pass protection, where his "rawness" is still evident and technique will need to continue to improve (waist bender).
*DT Derrick Nnadi, No. 91, is a beast in the middle of the Seminoles' defense. The junior boasts a big powerful stout frame with great athleticism, foot quickness, and agility. A load in the middle, Nnadi shows great ability to play front-side blockers at the point of attack with strength and leverage, and utilizes is short area quickness and agility to defend against back-side blocks showcasing tremendous athletic ability for a bruiser of a space eater.
DE DeMarcus Walker, No. 44, is a long-armed thick and solid edge defender showcasing a great combination of size, strength, speed, flexibility, and length bending quite well coming off the edge with good foot quickness and speed. A physical and aggressive edge player with a nice burst off the line of scrimmage, Walker shows good change of direction skills, strength at the point of attack, solid instincts, and is a relentless high-motored player that has a nose for the ball with decent closing speed. He is good at setting the edge, stacks and sheds with decent technique, and overall is good against the run, showcases good speed to power off the edge and can set the edge in the run game, but will need to be more consistent and develop more pass rush moves. At times he lets opponents get into his chest and gets stonewalled.

+QB Seth Russell, No. 17, displays a solid quarterback frame with impressive athleticism and speed. Russell stands tall in the pocket, makes quick decisive decisions in a wide-open offense. Ball pops out of his hands, has decent arm strength, good touch on the deep throws, and displays solid timing. Russell shows great athleticism and awareness in the pocket with a suddenness in his movements utilizing power and strength to slip through defenders keeping his eyes downfield with decent effectiveness throwing on the run. He also displays the mental and physical toughness along with great athleticism and agility to gain yards with his legs. In 2015, he averaged 10.5 yards per pass attempt and 8.2 yards per carry. Accuracy is inconsistent and coming off a season ending neck injury in 2015, durability will raise questions at the next level. Nevertheless, Russell is potentially a very intriguing fit in a Chip Kelly offense. Russell is out for the year with a gruesome lower leg injury (dislocated ankle) suffered during Week 10.
Other than an impressive first name, RB Shock Linwood, No. 32, displays amazing speed, quickness, burst, agility, and athleticism.

A dangerous receiving weapon in the middle of the field, Howard can easily take advantage of defenses with his 4.57 speed up the seam, the suddenness to separate and get away from man coverage taking advantage of his impressive length and athleticism, finds holes in zone and squares up presenting a large target and catching radius for the quarterback, and extends hands away from the body to make the catch. Along with good catching and great YAC ability, his blocking has been steadily improving as well, where he shows an excellent base, platform, and hand positioning blocking inline, and athletic ability with agility to swing his hips blocking in space when detached.
DE Jonathan Allen, No. 93, showcases amazing athleticism and power with impressive quickness and technique wreaking havoc in backfields as an upfield disrupter. Allen displays great burst off the line of scrimmage, quick, heavy, and violent punch at the point of attack, sound leverage utilizing great length, excels at converting speed to power, and the versatility to be disruptive from the inside and off the edge.
ILB Reuben Foster, No. 10, is a superb downhill plugger type of linebacker with a terrific combination of athleticism, size, physicality, range, speed, toughness, and strength. Foster is a fierce and terrific tackler with quality bulk-ability easily taking on bigger blockers at the point of attack winning with proper leverage separating with violent and powerful hands stacking and shedding, impressive sideline-to-sideline capabilities (superb range), and very skilled coming off the edge. A tremendously smart player with a high football IQ, Foster showcases excellent instincts and speed easily reading run keys and has the play speed (straight-line speed with a burst) to track down the football with impressive closing speed. Shows quality ability to play in coverage as well with sound awareness and balance. Moreover, he brings value on special teams where he's a strong tackler hitting with immense explosion. Foster is the best pure inside linebacker in the draft class and is a more athletic version to former Crimson Tide teammate, Reggie Ragland.
