Since I'm stuck in Kansas I've spent a lot of time of the chiefs Arrowheadpride blog and they have been talking about Daniel Holtzcraw for a while. I searched the site for Mr. Holtzclaw and couldn't find anything on him, and the guy deserves much more exposure. He is a very interesting prospect that I wanted to make sure you guys knew about. He is an ILB for the 3-4 defense and most experts have him going undrafted.
Holtzclaw is 6'1/2" and 242 pounds. He did 33 Reps at the EMU proday which would have tied Jason Smith and B.J. Raji had he been invited to the Combine. He actually outdid all other line backers in reps (next highest was 30). He also outran a lot of linebackers in the 40 by running 4.82 ( Faster than Rey Maualuga).
In interviews he has done Holtzclaw has insisted he is a very coachable and hardworking player, and that he overcomes not being a big name by working harder every day.
I think this kid could do well in the NFL and he is defiantly a good pickup for any team, especially if you could pick him up without a draft pick.
Here is a video of his pro day and some links.
