    [​IMG]NFL Draft analyst Todd McShay pegged five players from the Big 12 who have plenty of potential to improve their draft stock in 2010. You'll need ESPN Insider to read all his comments, but here's a few snippets of what McShay had to say:

    Jerrod Johnson, QB, Texas A&M
    Johnson must improve his decision-making if he is to boost his NFL draft stock during the 2010 college season. He tends to look on to receivers too much and often gets himself in trouble by trying to improve too much.​
    Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri
    There will always be questions about quarterbacks who come from spread systems like the one at Missouri, but Gabbert's accuracy, arm strength and pocket presence are all above-average to very good.​
    Nate Solder, LT, Colorado
    Solder carries a first-round grade into the season, but because Colorado has struggled recently he has flown under the radar a bit. In our opinion, though, he might be the most complete tackle in college football.​
    Niles Paul, WR, Nebraska
    To maximize his draft potential -- which we believe could rise as high as the second round -- Paul must first become a better route-runner. He is not quite as savvy as he should be in terms of setting defenders up and finding soft spots in zone coverage, and he must be more crisp in his routes and round off fewer cuts and breaks.​
    Aaron Williams, CB, Texas
    He is very aggressive, and we like the way he attacks the ball (8 INT, 3 PBU last season), but Williams needs to be more calculating when taking risks. He is confident in his ability but will get burned at times when gambling and guessing.​

    I hope Nate has a monster year. I want to see some pancake blocking. Then he can reap the rewards of the NFL draft.

    being at the open scrimmage, with Solder and Miller together we are pretty formidable up front from the eyeball test.
