2011 NFL Draft Prospects: Casey Matthews, Jeff Maehl, Brandon Bair

Today, we take a look at the Oregon Ducks Top 3 NFL Prospects who most of non-Pac 10 fans will be introduced to for the first time Monday night.

ILB Casey Matthews – 6’1, 238lbs. Younger brother of current Green Bay Packer Clay Matthews. May not have the athleticism or pass rushing ability of his older brother but puts up tackle numbers and plays very smart. Could increase his draft stock significantly with a strong performance Monday night.

Mocking the Draft Prediction: Round 4-5 pick.

WR Jeff Maehl – 6’1, 184lbs. Seems to be picking up steam and may continue to rise in pre draft workouts and combine work. Actually came to Oregon as a Defensive Back. Not a burner and will likely run in the high 4.6 range in the 40. Tremendous hands and is a prototypical move the chain WR.

Mocking the Draft Prediction: Round 5-6 pick.

DT Brandon Bair – 6’6, 272lbs. Plays with very good leverage and actually led the Pac 10 in TFL in 2010. Extremely productive player and NFL Scouts have taken notice. He’s older than most RS Sr. prospects at 27 because of a 2 year Mormon mission which may drop him a round of two.

Mocking the Draft Prediction: Round 6-7 pick.
