Cam Heyward, DE, Steelers (first-rounder, 31st overall):
He's played in all nine games but hasn't stood out in any way. While he's a good hold-the-point defender, he doesn't seem to be involved in big plays. It surprises me, because from what I saw at Ohio State, I thought Heyward would do more.
Mark Ingram, RB, Saints (first-rounder, 28th overall):
He's averaging under 4.0 yards per carry in a crowded backfield. Ingram's missed time because of injury, and his longest play is 20 yards. He'll pass protect but doesn't look like he has the quickness you want in a back. He'll be a good player, but not special. If the Saints traded up again, they would have gone in a different direction.
Corey Liuget, DL, Chargers (first-rounder, 18th overall):
He's started six games which matches his tackle total and no sacks. After I watched him at his pro day, I expected more out of him than I've seen. Right now, he's not doing anything special.
Robert Quinn, DE, Rams (first-rounder, 14th overall):
He has yet to start a game and made a minimal impact. Quinn's played better of late, with a sack in consecutive games to go with a blocked kick. However, because of his physical skills, speed and quickness we expected more. He didn't play football in 2010 so maybe it's taking time to get back in the flow. He'll eventually be a good pass rusher.
Derek Sherrod, OT, Packers (first-rounder, 32nd overall):
He's been inactive six times, and the fact that Marshall Newhouse
stepped in when Chad Clifton
went down shows you Sherrod isn't quite ready to play. As he gets stronger, Sherrod will fulfill expectations.
