The BCS National Championship game should be an interesting matchup featuring several high-profile draft prospects. Keep an eye on Auburn’s left tackle Greg Robinson because he has the raw talent to potentially come off the board within the first 10 picks.  Jon Dove grades his top prospects in this contest.

Greg Robinson/T/Auburn: Greg Robinson is a massive offensive line prospect who also features good movement skills for a player of his size. He has a natural bend which helps him play with balance, leverage and change direction. His size and raw strength make him a very effective run blocker. He’s able to not only generate a push off the line but also shows the ability to cross the face of the defender and seal him from the play.  Because Auburn runs a unique offense it’s tough to get a great read on his ability to protect the passer. He’s rarely asked to use a traditional kick slide or hold the edge for a seven-step drop. At this point, the evaluations of his pass protection skills are based on the athleticism he displays. Early 1st Round

Tre’ Jackson/G/Florida State: Tre’ Jackson is one of the more underrated offensive line prospects in this draft. He’s a fluid athlete who has a thick lower half and long arms. Jackson uses those long arms to engage the defender and control his movements. He’s more of a seal blocker and needs to do a better job getting a push off the line of scrimmage.   In pass protection, Jackson keeps a low and wide base which helps him absorb contact. He rarely gets pushed into the backfield which helps give the quarterback a clear line of sight. 2nd Round

Tre Mason/RB/Auburn: Tre Mason is a solidly built running back who also features excellent quickness. He’s a well-rounded runner who can attack the edges and pick up yards between the tackles. Mason runs with a lot of toughness and will finish with power despite is smaller stature.  The big question I have surrounding Mason is how his game will translate to an NFL offense. Auburn runs a wide-open attack which creates a lot of space for the running game. However, I have every belief that Mason will develop into a very effective NFL running back. 2nd Round

LaMarcus Joyner/DB/Florida State: LaMarcus Joyner is a versatile defender who has proven he’s capable of succeeding at either cornerback or safety. He relies on his combination of quickness and instincts to make plays all over the field. Despite his lack of size, Joyner is an aggressive player who does a good job supporting the run.  However, it’s that size issue that might cause some concerns for NFL evaluators. He’ll need to land with a team that’s willing to overlook his limitations and use him for what he brings to the table. Joyner is more than capable of carving out a starting job at the next level. He also brings added value as a kick returner. Late 2nd Round

Kelvin Benjamin/WR/Florida State: Kelvin Benjamin is a tremendously talented athlete who has a ton of upside. He features elite size and length with the speed needed to attack deep down the field. Benjamin knows how to use his size to his advantage and box out the defender.  His speed is really deceptive as he can quickly outpace the defensive back. However, I have a lot of concerns about his overall game. It starts with what I perceive as a lack of maturity. Benjamin doesn’t always appear to be going 100% which shows up in the way he runs his routes, catches the football and blocks. He really has a tough time creating separation and lacks the route deception that helps in that area.  His ability to locate openings in the zone is also an issue. Benjamin needs to improve his overall catching ability as he has a tendency to let the ball into his frame and doesn’t always attack at the highest point. He also will lose focus which leads to drops.  Benjamin needs to be careful with how physical he plays on the outside. There were a few occasions where he grabbed and pulled the defender which will absolutely lead to pass interference penalties at the next level. Again, this is a player with unlimited upside but he needs to show that he’s willing to work for it. 3rd Round

Timmy Jernigan/DL/Florida State: Timmy Jernigan is a tough prospect to figure out. He’s a hard worker who plays with good leverage and is capable of playing two-gap football. However, he lacks the size most look for in a nose tackle in either a 3-4 or 4-3 system.  Jernigan flashes some ability to penetrate the pocket but doesn’t do so on a consistent basis which makes it a stretch to consider him a three-technique. His shorter arms are also a concern because it allows blockers to get into his frame. Jernigan appears to be a two-down player who’ll provide solid run-stuffing ability. Late 3rd Round

Christian Jones/OLB/Florida State: Christian Jones has seen increased action at defensive end for Florida State. However, this isn’t really a great fit for his ability. He lacks the size and strength to hold up at the point of attack against offensive linemen. However, Jones shows excellent effort in his attempt to set the edge against the run.  His effort and spurts of success show a positive sign for how he can handle taking on blockers from his linebacker position. The defensive end fit is also poor because Jones isn’t a natural pass rusher. He has quickness off the ball, but just doesn’t have any pass-rush moves or a feel for how to get after the quarterback. With all this said, Jones is still a good linebacker prospect who is showing more versatility. Late 3rd Round

Telvin Smith/OLB/Florida State: Telvin Smith is an explosive athlete with elite quickness and closing speed. He also quickly reads post-snap information and isn’t afraid to attack. His athleticism also plays a major role in Smith’s ability to hold up in coverage. Smith’s fluid hips allow him to cover backs and tight ends in one on one situations.  He is a natural blitzer who knows how to perfectly time the snap and then quickly close the gap. The biggest concern surrounding Smith is his lack of bulk. He’s really on the thin side and I have a hard time seeing him hold up at the next level playing linebacker. If he could add some bulk to his frame his draft stock would really soar.  While Smith will come up into the hole, he doesn’t attack with authority or appear to completely trust his read. He needs to flow downhill and make more plays in the backfield. Against Boston College, Smith appeared too hesitant and appeared to quit on several plays. 4th Round

Cameron Erving/T/Florida State: Cameron Erving is a hard worker and high-effort guy. He’s committed to keeping his pads low and gaining inside hand placement. However, his lack of bulk and short arms really limit his potential. He has a narrow base in his kick slide which makes him susceptible to the bull rush. It’s just too easy for defensive linemen to push him back into the pocket. His short arms also play a role as pass-rushers easily get into his frame.  On the positive side, Erving overcomes his lack of bulk in the running game because he gains inside hands and maintains leverage. He also has the quickness to get across the face of the defender. I may be in the minority, but I just don’t see a starting caliber tackle in Erving. Late 4th Round
