Eric Kendricks heading into rSr season: A closer look at the Vikings' 10 picks: Round 2/45 - Eric Kendricks, MLB, 6-0, 230, UCLA...He'll be reunited with former Bruins teammate, roommate and best friend Anthony Barr as two of the Vikings' starting linemen.

Also has the skill set to be Greenway's heir apparent on the outside, if necessary. - The Sports Xchange

Jeff Locke heading into rSr season: A closer look at the Vikings' picks: 5/155 - Jeff Locke, P, 6-0, 209, UCLA...A year after replacing dependable veteran kicker Ryan Longwell with surprise sixth-round pick Blair Walsh, the Vikings threw another bit of a curveball in selecting the big-legged Locke to likely unseat Chris Kluwe, the best punter in Vikings history and still a dependable veteran. Kluwe did have a few uncharacteristic shanks last year, but many see this as a move to rid the team of the outspoken Kluwe, whose many causes have included national and international exposure as a supporter of gay marriage rights. - The Sports Xchange

Johnathan Franklin heading into rSr season: A closer look at the Packers' picks: Round 4/125 -- Johnathan Franklin, RB, 5-10, 205, UCLA...General manager Ted Thompson jumped back into the fourth round by making a trade with the Denver Broncos to nab the team's second high-quality back in this year's draft. A Lacy-Franklin pairing to supplement the Rodgers-led aerial attack has juicy possibilities. The knock on Franklin is his size, but he has explosive speed (4.4 in the 40) and credentials (1,734 rushing yards and 6.1 yards per carry last season) as UCLA's all-time leading rusher. - The Sports Xchange
*Xavier Su'a-Filo heading into rJr season: A closer look at the Texans' picks: Round 2/33 - Xavier Su'a-Filo, G, 6-4, 307, UCLA...Completed a two-year mission and should start at left guard immediately. Says he tries to emulate Logan Mankins, the Patriots' Pro Bowl guard. He has the kind of nasty streak coaches love. Also played tackle but will focus on inside with Texans. - The Sports Xchange
Anthony Barr heading into Sr season: A closer look at the Vikings' picks: Round 1/9 - Anthony Barr, OLB, 6-5, 255, UCLA...The Vikings traded down a spot with Cleveland, collecting a fifth-round pick, before addressing the league's worst scoring defense. Barr will start at strong-side linebacker, but also gives new coach Mike Zimmer a highly versatile edge rusher who's raw but has a high ceiling because of elite physical tools. He'll help offset the loss of Jared Allen, even though he'll play linebacker primarily. - The Sports Xchange
Christian Yount heading into Sr season: 2009: Saw action in all 13 games on special teams as the snapper for both punts and placements ... Made one tackle on punt coverage ...

Datone Jones heading into rSr season: A closer look at the Packers' picks: Round 1/26 -- Datone Jones, DE, 6-4, 285, UCLA...Jones should give Green Bay's short-handed and underwhelming defensive line an immediate upgrade as an ideal fit for its diversified 3-4 scheme. He's athletic, plays physical and tracks the football in a hurry, tying everything together to blow up the backfield with 19 tackles for loss (6.5 sacks) last season. Jones' experience of playing at multiple spots in the Packers' style of defense will allow coordinator Dom Capers to create pass-rushing mismatches in a tandem with outside linebacker Clay Matthews. - The Sports Xchange
Brett Hundley heading into rJr season: A closer look at the Packers' eight picks: Round 5/147 -- Brett Hundley, QB, 6-3, 226, UCLA...Just the sixth quarterback taken by Thompson in his 11 years overseeing the draft for Green Bay could yield a bona fide understudy to Rodgers for the years to come. The Packers traded up 19 spots in the fifth round to snag Hundley, touted as one of the top quarterbacks in the draft who the team felt was worthy of a Day 2 selection before the fourth round commenced Saturday. A product of the spread offense with Rodgers-like daring mobility outside the pocket, Hundley will have time to hone his strong, but occasionally erratic passing skills. - The Sports Xchange

Owamagbe Odighizuwa heading into rSr season: A closer look at the Giants' six picks: Round 3/74 - Owa Odighizuwa, DE, 6-3, 267, UCLA...For the third year in a row, New York added a defensive line prospect in the third round. Odighizuwa played in a 3-4 defense for the Bruins, but will likely see snaps at both defensive end spots as well as the 3-technique defensive tackle on passing downs. - The Sports Xchange

Jeff Baca heading into rSr season: A closer look at the Vikings' picks: 6/196 - Jeff Baca, G, 6-3, 302, UCLA...Known as a tenacious blocker but is on the shorter side and can be overpowered by stronger nose tackles.

Number of Players NFL Draft Scout is currently tracking: (Player Tracking) - Players are rated and updated throughout the season. Those with a "99" or "999" are currently listed but UNRATED.

NFLDraftScout.com uses the best verifiable 40-yard time for each player. There is no single, official 40-yard time for any player, even those who run at the Indianapolis Combine. Those players who participate in the 40 yards at the Combine actually run twice and on each run they are timed by two hand-held stopwatches and one electronic timer (that is actually initiated by hand on the player's first movement). Combine data includes all six of those times for each player, but no single official time. Team scouts and coaches have various approaches for getting the 40 time they use from those six timings. Some use averages. Some throw out slowest and fastest and then average the rest. In deference to each player, NFLDraftScout.com attempts to use the best verifiable time that seems appropriate for each player. That is the 40 time we post.
