2007 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Brian Leonard, FB, Rutgers
Playing in a Rutgers' backfield with Ray Rice forced Leonard into relative obscurity last season, but the fullback will be remembered on draft day. Leonard should be a Day 1 pick and he could (although it's a longshot) sneak into the first round if he performs at the combine like he did during Senior Bowl week. Leonard can do it all out of the backfield; run, catch, and block. Rutgers used him primarily in blocking schemes for Rice last year, so Leonard saw his receptions and carriers decrease dramatically. That's why Leonard could fly under the radar and turn out to be a super sleeper for some NFL team who has done their homework. Leonard has soft hands and is blessed with outstanding speed for a 235-pounder. Don't be surprised to see him run a 4.5 at the combine. Not only will the team that selects Leonard get an all-around great football player, but they will also be getting an all-around great guy. Leonard won the 2006 Draddy Award, given for outstanding play on the field, academic success, and community leadership. This hidden gem might not be so hidden come April 29.
