Published: April 26, 2008
Oklahoma State could have as few as one player selected this weekend in the NFL Draft or as many as three players selected.

Listed below are OSU players who might be drafted, or at least have a shot at being invited to an NFL training camp as an undrafted free agent.

Dantrell Savage
Position: Running back

Stats: 1,272 yards rushing, 9 TDs in 2007.

Ht./Wt.: 5-8, 195

Combine/pro day stats: 4.40 in the 40.

Projection: Could go as early as fourth round, as late as sixth round.

Upside: His height is a concern for some teams, but he was first-team all-Big 12 and finished his career with 10 consecutive 100-yard games.

Adarius Bowman
Position: Wide receiver

Stats: 67 catches, 1,006 yards, 8 TDs in 2007.

Ht./Wt.: 6-4, 220

Combine/pro day stats: 4.76 in 40; 34-inch vertical.

Projection: Sixth or seventh round.

Upside: Back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving seasons are proof he can produce, but his stock has dropped because of a slow 40 time and marijuana arrest.

Julius Crosslin
Position: Fullback.

Stats: 432 career rushing yards, 23 TDs.

Ht./Wt.: 6-0, 230

Combine/pro day stats: 4.75 in 40; 35-inch vertical.

Projection: Priority free agent but could go in seventh round.

Upside: NFL teams love players who with size and speed. A solid blocker and special teams player, he will earn a shot in some team's camp.

Rod Johnson
Position: Linebacker

Stats: 181 career tackles.

Ht./Wt.: 6-3, 255

Combine/pro day stats: 5.15 in 40; 28-inch vertical.

Projection: Could sneak into seventh round but most likely will be a free agent.

Upside: Switching from linebacker to defensive end, back to linebacker, Johnson should get a shot in some team's camp, but his lack of speed makes him a long shot to make a roster.

Marque Fountain
Position: Defensive end

Stats: 132 career tackles, 11.5 sacks.

Ht./Wt.: 6-2, 260

Combine/pro day stats: 5.03 in 40; 20 reps (225 pounds).

Projection: Free agent

Donovan Woods
Position: Linebacker

Stats: 175 career tackles, 5 interceptions

Ht./Wt.: 6-2, 230

Combine/pro day stats: 4.70 in 40; 36-inch vertical.

Projection: Free agent

Upside: The ideal team player, Woods — who is a Millwood graduate — moved from quarterback to safety to linebacker and should earn a spot in some team's camp.

Zach Carter
Position: Fullback

Stats: No carries, one reception

Ht./Wt.: 6-1, 225

Combine/pro day stats: 4.61 in 40; 38-inch vertical.

Projection: Free agent
