My board has reached 40: Rick Dees and the weekly top Forteeeeee…sorry. We are about 7 weeks away from the draft and the Combine is just about finished up. This board will keep changing up until draft night…as much as I hate that it’s on primetime.
1. Ndamukong Suh DT, Nebraska– Simply said about his senior year: Dominant. Sick vertical for a DT.
2. Gerald McCoy DT, Oklahoma– High motor tackle can play in either 3-4 or 4-3.
3. Eric Berry S, Tennessee– Drawing comparisons to Ed Reed.
4. Joe Haden CB, Florida– Top CB, has speed and can be left on an island.
5. Russell Okung OT, Oklahoma State– Just about everything you look for in franchise tackle.
6. Jimmy Clausen QB, Notre Dame– Out of pro-style offense, but Rams may have Bradford rated higher.
7. CJ Spiller RB, Clemson– Speedy back, great return skills, clear cut top RB for 2010. 40 time just confirms his spot here.
8. Derrick Morgan DE, Georgia Tech– Highly productive and athletic, good against run and pass.
9. Rolando McClain LB, Alabama– Butkus Award winner, intelligent and vocal leader for a defense. Had to leave combine due to injury.
10. Sam Bradford QB, Oklahoma– Deadly accurate, but how will shoulder work out? Early rumblings are that Rams want him…but he hasn’t even worked out for them yet at pro day.
11. Jason Pierre-Paul DE, USF– Loads of potential, super athletic, and rushes passer very well, but a one year wonder?
12. Dez Bryant WR, Oklahoma State– Have heard rumblings that he’s as good as Crabtree, can make every catch, but character concerns are mounting.
13. Dan Williams DT, Tennessee– Like Robert Ayers last year, this Vol greatly improved his stock and ride it to a high 1st round selection.
14. Bryan Bulaga OT, Iowa- The Big 10 Offensive Lineman of the Year is a great pass blocker and has prototypical size for a franchise left tackle.
15. Earl Thomas S, Texas– A little undersized, but great in coverage and against the run.
16. Damian Williams WR, USC– Great route runner and great hands, not many weaknesses in his game.
17. Anthony Davis OT, Rutgers– An elite run blocker, great size, average pass protector.
18. Trent Williams OT, Oklahoma– Will he be asked to play left or right tackle? He’s better at right, but was still 1st Team All-America at LT senior year.
19. Brandon Graham DE/OLB, Michigan– Tremendous showing at Senior Bowl; in mold of Lamarr Woodley, injured hamstring during 40 at Combine.
20. Mike Iupati OG, Idaho– Had a strong showing at the Senior Bowl as well, but had already solidified himself as a top 25 best overall prospect.
21. Brian Price DT, UCLA– Doesn’t have any room to get bigger, but a strong junior season.
22. Sean Weatherspoon OLB, Missouri– Has the skills to be a top LB in the NFL, players rallied around him at Senior Bowl.
23. Jermaine Gresham TE, Oklahoma– Injured all last season, but is still top TE prospect in 2010.
24. Carlos Dunlap DE, Florida– Character and work ethic issues drop him down, but he’s a producer from DE.
25. Bruce Campbell OT, Maryland– Some injury concerns, great pass blocker, but average run blocker. Top flight 40 time, so Al Davis is very interested, but will he take a tackle with JPP there?
26. Everson Griffen DE, USC– Is raw, but has experience as a rush linebacker and defensive end.
27. Kyle Wilson CB, Boise State– Stock is on fire right now, he’s become a lock in the first round.
28. Jerry Hughes OLB, TCU– Great pass rusher, needs to get better in coverage, but is a hard worker.
29. Jared Odrick DT, Penn State– Has a nonstop motor, but when double teamed, he disappears.
30. Golden Tate WR, Notre Dame– Will need to work on route running, but is a great athlete and pass catcher.
31. Maurkice Pouncey OG/C, Florida– Left Florida early and he could see himself drafted as high as the late first round.
32. Taylor Mays S, USC– Extremely physical player, but whiffs on too many tackles and doesn’t have the greatest coverage skills.
33. Arrelious Benn WR, Illinois– Stats look bad, but that’s because of Juice. Benn is much better than he appeared his senior year.
34. Donovan Warren CB, Michigan– A little bit underrated, but was a star on a struggling Michigan team.
35. Charles Brown OT, USC– Converted from tight end, a little light, but is very athletic.
36. Sergio Kindle OLB, Texas– Has trouble getting off blocks, but is a very good pass rusher
37. Jahvid Best RB, California– Injuries are a concern, but if he can stay healthy and concussion free, he’ll be very good.
38. Brandon LaFell WR, LSU– Didn’t have the combine that he needed in order to improve his stock. He could be down to the middle of round 2 on some boards.
39. Ricky Sapp OLB, Clemson– has a little bit of injuries in his past, but is good whenever he plays
40. Terrence Cody DT, Alabama– Mount Cody takes up so much space, but is only a 2 down player. Did lose weight between Combine and Senior Bowl though (16 pounds).
