This year I wrote the player rankings and evaluations for the USA Today 2012 NFL Draft magazine. It's on newsstands now and available online here. Leading up to the draft, I'll be reprinting some of my quick reports here.
Marcus Forston, Miami
Height: 6'3, Weight: 300 pounds
Strengths: When healthy, especially in 2010, Forston flashed the athleticism and strength to dominate at the line of scrimmage. Has a strong lower half to anchor in the middle. Has a frame that can carry much more strength. Could be a solid nose tackle candidate.
Weaknesses: Often got high at the snap and loses leverage. Lack of experience shows in his inability to use his hands properly to keep himself clean. Missed the majority of two seasons (2009 and 2011) with injury.
