Other Comments:

I don't know how Ian Hoskins was projected so late. After his ridiculous outing at the Marshall pro day, all NFL eyes should be raised; 50 reps is just unheard of. On top of those 50 reps, he ran a 4.72, which is pretty quick for DE. He'll take a long time to develop, at least two-three years, but if you're patient, he could be something special. He played LB for two years at MLB and OLB, and moved to DT and DE his senior year. He's most likely become a three-four DE, but there's no set position for him. He could be the steal of the draft in the seventh round.
