Risers on offense Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma He's not in the first-round discussion, but Jones has recovered some in the eyes of a number of teams who once might have seen him as a talented lost cause. When he's fundamentally sound, he shows off a ton of arm talent. Once a likely mid-to-late rounder, I wouldn't be shocked if someone took him in the late second round. Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama At one time I know some teams saw him as third-rounder, but he could sneak his way into the late first. He's got a big frame, great feet and is the most explosive running back who can come close to an "every-down" label. Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia You loved the tape, but was the speed real? Well, his 4.34 40 time in Indy combined with good straight-line speed, very good hands and route-running chops have solidified him as a mid-first rounder. Lane Johnson, T, Oklahoma The junior college quarterback clearly made the right call when he moved to offensive tackle. Teams that once saw him as a talented natural at the position but with plenty of development, now see him as a potential top-10 pick. He has made a huge jump in a few months. Gavin Escobar, TE, San Diego State It's a tight-end crazy league, and outside of Tyler Eifert, nobody in the draft class has a better set of hands than Escobar. He'll look like a power forward splitting the seam, and where I once saw a mid-round sleeper, I now see a safe bet for Round 2. Risers on defense [+] Enlarge AP Photo/Michael Conroy Florida DT Shariff Floyd could be a top-five pick. Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU Once teams got comfortable with his future position to go with the freakish athleticism, his stock really took off. He came into January as a late-first, early-second developmental talent; now he could go as high as No. 5. Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida A late-season surge helped his stock, and Floyd has aced the draft process. I had a mid-first grade on him most of the season, but he's now comfortably in the top-five mix. That may not seem like a huge leap, but it counts for more in a deep D-tackle class. Sio Moore, OLB, UConn I highlighted him during the season as a prospect to watch, and Moore has moved from the mid-round mix to a good bet for Round 2. He offers some versatility at outside linebacker. Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington He crushed the Senior Bowl, then backed it up with a great run in Indy. Trufant is versatile and able to mirror receivers outside, but adept in zone. You can draft him without scheme concerns -- he'll produce. Once a likely third, he's now in the first-round mix. Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International He's now right there with Kenny Vaccaro (Texas) and Matt Elam (Florida) on my board. Cyprien turned heads at the Senior Bowl once he got a chance to play with so many good players. It wouldn't surprise me if he's taken in Round 1.
