- Top-five Cincinnati prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. OT Sean Hooey (6-8, 298)...With his incredible size, long arms and surprising athleticism Hooey boasts many of the physical traits that every NFL scouts is looking for in a developmental prospect. Unfortunately, Hooey has struggled to maintain a starting role for the Bearcats, likely due to the fact that he's been a bit injury prone. Hooey was expected to emerge as a bright spot for Cincinnati at right tackle a season ago but after initially playing well there, he suffered an ankle injury that ended his season prematurely. Jones and his staff moved Hooey to the all-important left tackle position during the spring. Should he have the breakout campaign that many close to the program believe he could, Hooey will draw looks from scouts as there is no denying his potential. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
