1)Charles Brown, DB, UNC. http://www.nfl.com/c...rown?id=2532806
I watched this dude's entire career at UNC. I met him, I isolated him in watching game tape, I studied his craft. This guy is a Raven. His 40 time puzzles me, because he was always 4.4 solid and one of the fastest Tar Heels. He improved at his pro day, running a 4.51. He plays VERY physical. He will not be manhandled. He would be a great depth CB/special teams player. I disagree with the cursory assessment done on NFL.com; I have seen every one of this guy's games in college and I think he is a good cb. He would create turnovers when covering in a dime defense. His instincts are good, if he'll trust his speed again. If he gets the ball, it'll be 6.
2)John Brantley, QB, Florida. This guy's worst enemy has been injury. I've seen him play some great football. I was actually rooting against him, hoping he'd affect a great dropoff after Tebow left, but he held his own and then some. He even ran the ball effectively. Keep in mind that he went through a coaching regime change and a couple offensive coordinators. Is he over the injury bug? That'll be the big question. He has good instincts, though, and has been around great offensive minds (Weiss, Urban Meyer, Muschamp). He could be a really good backup if he develops this offseason.
