2011 NFL Draft: Catching up on the latest in prospect land

The 2010 AP Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year awards will be announced at approximately 8 p.m. Eastern. We'll have complete coverage when St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford wins the Offensive ROY (hopefully) right here at TST. In the meantime, next year's rookies are hustling and scraping to make sure their names get called when the draft happens in April. Here's the latest and greatest news on the 2011 NFL Draft prospects while you wait for the big news tonight. 

Another all-star game? Yes, the Eastham Energy Bowl didn't feature any future first round picks, but it did include a fair number of prospects that could end up on an NFL roster in 2011, via the draft or undrafted free agency. Rob Rang has some names to know from the game, including a couple offensive and defensive linemen.

Speaking of all-star games, here's Tony Pauline's report at TFY Draft Insider from the NFLPA Game. Some of the names you should recognize, like Hampton DT Kendrick Ellis. TFY says he's playing at about 10-15 lbs overweight which would explain why an earlier report considered him a possibility in a 4-3. 

Here's an OLB to keep an eye on from the TFY report:

Spencer Paysinger/OLB/Oregon: Looked explosive and agile. Showed terrific vision and instincts in practice. Fluid moving sideline-to-sideline and looked very athletic.

Don't know anything about him, but sideline-to-sideline is something the Rams could use in an OLB.

LSU CB Patrick Peterson predicts a sub-4.2 40 time for himself at the Combine.
