Meet our UDFA class

First up, the best prospect we have picked up, Pat Devlin. Devlin has amazing accuracy and good enough arm strength.


Pat Devlin, QB, Delaware 
Height: 6-3. Weight: 225. 
Projected 40 Time: 4.84. 
Combine 40 Time: 4.87. 
Pro Day 40 Time: . 
Hand: 9 7/8. 
Projected Round (2011): 6-FA. 

3/16/11: As Emmitt Smith would say, "Pat Devils debacled himselves at his Pro Days." First, Devlin showed up 30 minutes late to his own workout. Next, he was completely inaccurate during his passing drills. Note to all future NFL Draft prospects: Don't go out drinking with JaMarcus Russell the night before your Pro Day. 

1/24/11: To copy what I wrote in my 2011 NFL Mock Draft, I really liked what I saw out of Pat Devlin in two playoff games against New Hampshire and Eastern Washington. He has a good arm and was pretty accurate with his throws. He also has a quick release. The big issue is that he holds on to the football too long, but that's something that can be fixed with proper coaching. Devlin projects as a great fit for Harbaugh's offense. 

10/1/10: Devlin is probably the toughest quarterback in college football right now. He fractured his left wrist, and returned to play two weeks later against Richmond going 14-21 for 240 yards. Devlin's production in his first two games was mediocre only throwing for a 6.3 YPA against West Chester and South Dakota State. 

3/29/10: As a junior at Delaware, Pat Devlin threw for 2,664 yards, 16 touchdowns and nine picks on a 7.7 YPA and 64.0 completion percentage. He boasts a strong arm and could be a first-round pick with a solid senior campaign. 

2/4/09: Pat Devlin doesn't have much playing experience, thanks to Darryl Clark, but he possesses a rocket arm. He transferred over to Delaware in hopes of becoming the next Joe Flacco. With two strong seasons, Devlin could be a first-round pick in 2010.

Next up is a HB from Arizona, Nic Grigsby


Nic Grigsby, RB, Arizona 
Height: 5-11. Weight: 199. 
Projected 40 Time: 4.50. 
Combine 40 Time: DNP. 
Pro Day 40 Time: 4.38. 
Benchx225: 21. Vertical: 43.5. Broad: 11-0. 
Projected Round (2011): 6-FA. 

3/13/11: Nic Grigsby had a breath-taking Pro Day. He ran a 4.38, and notched a vertical of 43.5 inches and a broad jump of 11 feet. Grigsby caught 25 passes last year, so he projects as an intriguing third-down back. 

3/29/10: Saw a drop in production last season; had just 79 carries for 567 yards (7.2 YPC) and 13 receptions. 

8/6/09: Nic Grigsby rushed for 1,153 yards and 13 touchdowns on a 5.4 YPC in 2008. He also caught 12 passes. Unfortunately, his 40 time will hurt his draft stock considering how small his frame is. 


Projected 40 time is what people expected him to run based on college play. So he is about as fast as Hartline.

Looks like a scatback to me, but lacks elite speed. That is fine, but he would be a better prospect if he played like his 4.3 40 time suggests.

8/7/09: Will be drafted as a return specialist only; despite playing on a bum knee, Phillip Livas scored three return touchdowns in 2008.
