1. Brady Quinn (QB): Calvin Johnson may be the best talent, but a possibly great quarterback is always harder to find then a great receiver.

2. Calvin Johnson (WR): Amazing talent. I take nothing away from him by ranking him behind Quinn. Is everything you want in a receiver prospect.

3. Joe Thomas (T): So many teams (Arizona, Dallas) are seeing first hand why offensive line is so important. Thomas has incredible size and athleticism and shows all the signs of being a foundation blindside tackle.

4. Adrian Peterson (RB): Amazing athlete and physically imposing. The speed in which he gets through holes amazes me everytime. The only worries are his height (not many great RB's are almost 6-2) and ability to stay healthy.

5. Laron Landry (S): A ball hawk who knows how to deliver a hit. Sure tackler who reads defenses incredibly well.

6. Alan Branch (DT): Junior prospect with amazing size and skill. Don't like to make comparisons to contemporary greats, but he has "next Richard Seymour" written all over him.

7. Marshawn Lynch (RB): Elusive, fast, and strong. Good skills for a running back I'd say.

8. Leon Hall (CB): Smart corner who is also a ball hawk on runs. Reads defenses incredibly well and is incredibly athletic.

9. Jared Gaither (T): At 6-9 he is a monster of a man. Young, but all the talent is there.

10. Brian Brohm (QB): Great size and intelligence. Injuries are a concern and he doesn't have the strongest arm, but his style of play should translate very well to the NFL.

11. Gaines Adams (DE): Freakish athlete. Amazing pass rusher who has the speed to blow by the best of linemen. May be beat too much on runs.

12. Dwyane Jarret (WR): Great size and athleticism. Has as good of control over his body as any receiver I've seen in a long time.

13. Antoine Cason (CB): Has all the top flight skills of a corner. He's fast, athletic, and feels he can stop anyone.

14. Sam Baker (T): Athletic tackle who sometimes gets lost in a game. The skill is there, he just needs to be more disciplined.

15. Paul Posluszny (LB): I'll admit, this may be a little high for him given the season he has been having, but I like him. He is a football player to the highest degree and that is something you have to admire. I think a return to the outside would fit him nicely.

16. Quentin Moses (DE): Needs to add beef but has incredibly strong legs and text book form. If he can develop a little more size then he could play end in a 3-4.

17. Patrick Willis (LB): Has the intelligence to step in and diagnose offenses right away (ala Lofa Tatupa). Takes on blocks well and can even go back in coverage.

18. Sydney Rice (WR): Very young and very talented. May not be the big play receiver Johnson and Jarret are, but he has the size and toughness to go over the middle and move the chains.

19. Lamarr Woodley (DE/LB): Has the athleticism to play OLB or DE. Could be strong asset blitzing from the LB spot or putting his hand down on the ground in 3rd and long.

20. Levi Brown (T): The Nittany Lions have dissapointed, but Anthony Morelli can not say that this guy hasn't blocked for him all season.

21. Marcus McCauley (CB): I'm not as big on him as a lot of people, but he has all the tools to be a solid corner (size, speed). Bumps receivers off the line as well as any corner in college. Needs to learn to come up quicker on short routes.

22. Michael Griffin (S): The next in a long line of incredibly talented Big 12 safeties (Michael Huff, Roy Williams). Can cover down field but even more effective coming up and making stops. May need to think and not react a little more.

23. Quinn Pitcock (DT): Has a lot of of detractors, but this guy can play. Incredibly strong legs and great athleticsm, he has the ability to penetrate and break up a run or make the quarterback run for his life.

24. Frank Okam (DT): Needs to bring it on every play. If he had made as many plays as Pitcock he'd be higher then Pit cause he is bigger and stronger. But he needs to bring it.

25. Jeff Samarjizia (WR): May play baseball, which is the only reason he's this low and behind Rice. But Samarjizia can run with anyone in college football and is an incrediby big target.

Next in Line: Kenny Irons, RB/ Darrelle Revis, CB/ Justin Blalock, OL/ Michael Bush, RB/ H.B Blades, LB

This should probably be put in the NFL Draft forum.

If you want to repost this in the NFL Draft Forum, that is where it should go. You'll get more discussion there about it.
