Sunday Draft Notes: April 6th

Oklahoma tackle Philip Loadholt has made a major move up draft boards. Loadholt played well at the Senior Bowl then came to the combine in even better shape. Sources close to the Pittsburgh Steelers said the team will consider Loadholt with the final pick of round one. If they go in this direction it could mean the Max Starks will stay on the left side.

T.J. Lang of Eastern Michigan continues his ascension up draft boards. There's a feeling Lang could end up in the late part of round two and will not get out of the third frame. Lang has visits lined up with the Baltimore Ravens, San Diego Chargers, Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Atlanta Falcons, Houston Texans, Detroit Lions, New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Dallas Cowboys.

St. Paul's cornerback Greg Toler has been the talk of the draft world recently, and with good reason. Toler has been shooting up draft boards and like TJ Lange, is another non-combine player who could be a top 100 pick. One general manger has stated from a football point of view he feels Toler is a better NFL prospect than Vontae Davis.

Toler's schedule is ridiculous. He's already visited with the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins besides taking in the Washington Redskins local visit.

Tomorrow Toler will be visiting with the New York Jets and also has the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals this week. He is then tentatively scheduled to visit the Tampa Bay Bucs on April 13th then finishes out the week with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans, Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions.

Toler has already had private, on campus workouts with the New York Jets, Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots.

Vaughn Martin, the big defensive tackle from Western College in Ontario, Canada, is on the move.

We alerted you to Martin's weekend workout in Canada on March 15th.

Since then Martin has held private workouts with the Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, Carolina Panthers and Green Bay Packers.

He is scheduled to visit Indianapolis, New England, Carolina as well as the Miami Dolphins, San Diego Chargers and St. Louis Rams.

Troy State defensive back Sherrod Martin, who suffered some serious shoulder injuries early in his career, has been given a clean bill of health by NFL teams. Martin has not been called by to Indianapolis for a combine recheck but instead spent his time privately working out for the Atlanta Falcons, Chicago Bears, New England Patriots, New York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Dolphins and Denver Broncos.

The same cannot be said for Oregon State offensive lineman Andy Levitre. Sources have told us that Levitre has been struggling with two bad knees to the point where he barely practiced during his senior season. The same source told us Levitre has been asked to return to Indianapolis for the combine recheck.
