By Jamison Hensley



Here's a quick analysis to go along with the video report by ESPN's Todd McShay:

Courtney Upshaw

Position: Defensive end-linebacker. School: Alabama

Possible AFC North destinations: Ravens, Steelers and Bengals

Positive: Very strong and runs to the ball. Negative: Considered an average athlete.

Projection: Best suited to be a 3-4 outside linebacker but could play end in 4-3 defense. Expected to go late in the first round.
