here are some of the anonymous takes from NFL scouts given to Nolan Nawrocki: Budda Baker (FS-NCB): "I think he has to be a nickel. He is too small to be anything else for us". Obi Melinfonwu (SS-WLB): "Melinfonwu looks like Tarzan and plays like Jane. He's tall and lanky and not necessarily soft but he does not look like a safety moving around. Now, if you were handing out sticks for a track team, I would draft him first. Someone needs to show me the tape where he plays to the 4.4 speed though. I have not seen any yet, and I've spent a lot of time tracking him." Desmond King(NCB-FS-RS): "I heard all the hype entering the school and was looking forward to seeing him. I was disappointed. I'm not ready to say he could start for us...I love his instincts. He's smart and tough. He's just not fast and ultimately and ultimately that will catch up to him. He looks 5'9" when you walk up to him. He's a team's third corner, a nickel. He has had some success as a returner...It's always easy to say a corner can play safety when they are tough and instinctive. It's different than matching up against NFL receivers." Marcus Williams(FS-LCB): "Williams is a really good player. He played at 195lbs but has a frame to weigh 210lbs easily. He is athletic like a cornerback. He's an OKAY tackler but not a big hitter. I really like his movement skills". Adoree Jackson(NCB-RS): "Jackson is small and undisciplined, but you have to respect him for his return ability. He had 8 returns for TD's. He was an All-American jumper at USC on the track team and can flat-out fly. He runs track at 175lbs. He played between 177-180lbs during the year. I don't know how well he is going to hold up at our level but I like what he does with the ball in his hands. Tedric Thompson (FS): "Everyone talks about how good Ohio State FS Malik Hooker is, but I actually like Thompson just as much if not more. He has more experience and better instincts and makes a lot of plays on the ball. Marcus Maye (FS) - there was no scouts take on him... Jabrill Peppers (SS-NCB): "If you are going to draft him early, you need to have a conviction about where to play him and run with it. I think he is a great athlete and will go somewhere in the 1st round. I was not fired up with what I saw of him as a safety.".
