Prospect Profile: Jamison Crowder - Ricky Henne
The ACC has seen it’s fair share of elite talent throughout its storied history, but no receiver has ever been more productive than Jamison Crowder.  The Duke star tied an ACC mark with 283 career receptions and finished third with 3,641 yards over four memorable years.  Now, he’s primed to bring his explosive playmaking ability to the NFL.

Futures: Winston, Hundley, Mariota, and Footwork - Matt Waldman
Mariota's feet tell the story: deliberate, incremental, tiny steps. Watch him maneuver a pocket say the word "click" after each step, and the Oregon quarterback's footwork is almost robotic. It's the telltale characteristic of an analytical mind under center.

Best Case Scenario - QB Edition - Tony Pisano
Garrett Grayson is in a similar position as Hundley. He isn’t NFL ready and would benefit going to a team that has a veteran already in place. Grayson would offer no threat to Philip Rivers’ starting position and would get a chance to learn behind him. That is something important to remember for you dynasty league guys. Grayson would take over a pretty solid offense that figures to add more young talent in this year’s draft.

"He’s a great kid," Fox said. "He started ever since he came out as a rookie. He started at right tackle. We moved him to guard. I think he’s a tremendous teammate and a tremendous young player that I wish nothing but success."
