John Conner
Round 5, Pick 139
Position: FB
Class: 5Sr
School: Kentucky
Conference: Southeastern
HT: 5-11
WT: 246
40 Time: 4.64
Biography: Two-year starter who totaled 30/156/2 as a senior after 15/47 prior year.

Positives: Strong, aggressive lead blocker who opens holes for the running game. Displays terrific vision, squares into defenders, and turns them from the action. Accelerates into blocks and drives through opponents, attacking assignments. Adequate pass catcher out of the backfield who adjusts to the errant throw and looks the ball into his hands.

Negatives: Rumbles about the field and displays minimal quickness in his game. Not a fullback who can turn the corner and is most effective between tackle.

Analysis: Connor is a hard-working lead blocker who does the little things well. He's a throwback type of player yet a bit one-dimensional. As a result, Connor will not be selected until the late part of the draft, but he will be an asset for some team at the next level.

Projection: 6th
