I was going thru the list of players i think will or have a chance to leave college early for the draft, now i didn't do everyone becuase i havn't seen a lot of them play, so if some of them have been terrible this year and i have them leaving then just let me know. Also, I'd love to know more about all these players so definately feel free to talk about players who people may not get to see as much as you see.

I dont really have any junior QB's leaving, considering there are half a dozen legit senior prospects.
RB's: Darren McFadden, James Davis, Steve Slaton, Ray Rice, Jonathan Stewart
FBs: not 100% sure on this, i didn't really think this was a position that had people leave early.
WRs: DeSean Jackson, Jarrett Dilliard and im thinking Mario Urrutia considering Brohm is leaving. Also i know he is a senior but is Evan Moore a WR or is he just a TE that they happen to run out wide once in a while? Cause at 6' 7" 242 he's a fairly large guy. I'll keep an eye out for him when he plays Cal, Oregon and USC but i would just like to know about his hands and route running.
TE's:Martellus Bennett is a stud and i think possibly Travis Beckum considering the looks he is getting because he is playing at wisconsin.
OT's: 4. Ryan Clady and Michael Oher
OG: Jeremy Perry.. i would love to know more about the OG's for this coming year. I know Jordan Grimes is a senior, but anyone at Purdue that could shed some light id love to hear it.
C: don't really know any.
DE: Calais Campbell, *Derrick Harvey, Tyson Jackson, *Bruce Davis, *Vernon Gholston, *Tommy Blake, *Quentin Groves. THe * is who i think could play OLB in the 3-4, as that is the position that interests me most, considering thats what i want the jets to draft in the first round.
DT: Terrance Taylor???
OLB: Brian Cushing and maybe Willie williams?
MLB: Definately Rey Maualuga and James Laurinaitis
CB: From what i've heard there are a ton of CB's who have the ability to leave early and be solid nfl Cb's but no studs like Revis, Hall, Cromartie.
- Malcom Jenkins, Aqib Talib(who is also apparantly a pretty decent reviever now), Justin King, Brandon Flowers
Safeties: Kenny Phillips, can't wait to see him play.


COnsidering its only goin on week 4 theres bound to be injuries and other players stepping up, also emergence of seniors who will make juniors go back for another year of college. IF you know or definately think any of these players aren't gonna enter the draft thatd be good to know.

i doubt willie williams comes out because he has major character questions... and he's still probably never played up to his potential (though he hasn't really had the opportunity to yet). judging by his character, it wouldn't shock me if he decided to come out, but of all the people you listed, he'd be the one best served by coming back.

also, i think rice should stay and extra year, especially if the other four come out... and don't rule out felix jones taking off when mcfadden does. it would probably benefit him more to stay, but he could leave based on the fact that he will be shouldering the load and having defenses key on him. it's unlikely but still possible.

True, the CB class last year wasn't the strongest, but i think Revis and Hall will be quality #1 cbs. Maybe stud was a bit premature, but i think they have the ability. From what i've seen both have the ability to step up in run support and atleast i know revis hasn't been tested very much in the passing game. NOw this could be that barrett is just being picked on. However, I still think level Daymeion Hughes, Eric Wright and chris houston have some promise. We'll see in a few years.

Leon Hall got burned repeatedly by Braylon Edwards. And Cromartie gave up pass interference penalties vs. Donte Stallworth. Revis I can't comment on, but that class hasn't been special so far.

I believe King will be a special coverage CB, but I have questions about his tackling ability and run stopping ability. He probably won't declare... most PSU guys stay for their 4th year.

Hall and Revis are rookies...

Anyways, Mario Manningham is probably >50% chance that he leaves early. Don't agree with the decision though.

yea i wouldnt agree with super mario if he came out cuz i jus dont think hes ready for the pros yet and one more year in ann arbor would do wonders for his progression into a more complete wideout. plus if ryan mallet can launch the ball as far as ppl say he can imagine what this tandem could accomplish next season.

Dude, they're rookies. Not many rookies come in and are lights out.

I think Malcolm Jenkins goes for sure, and Gholston probably does too unless he does terrible this year (not likely). I think Laurinaitis will follow AJ Hawk and Mike Doss' footsteps and stick around for 4 years.

I don't think Brandon Flowers or Victor Harris will leave early.

And a good return man. I don't know if he was the best corner available, but his return ability boosted his stock especially after his amazing WVU punt return where Derek Kinder killed two WVU guys on one play. http://youtube.com/watch?v=vV3g2Z-0ExA

i think, Courtney Greene will enter early. If he doesnt, that will lean Ray more to staying(HS team mates, friends since pre-k).

again, i feel I'm a minority in saying Ray Ray will stay, but hey, we'll see

courtney greene is a stud. I play both of them in highschool, as they went to the same school. Ray ray was about 20 lbs lighter and he broke my buddies leg, our star tailback. He scored just about every point they had and we ended up losing by a score on the goal line on the last play of the game on a qb keeper. It was basically like watchin friday night lights. It was the Shenendehowa vs New Rochelle game. Not very important i just wanted him to do well so i can tell my buddy hey atleast you got ur leg broken by a heisman winner lol.

Hes not an underclassman, but i feel hes gonna be this years Tony Ugoh, yea that is Chris Williams, LT Vandy. Hes a late day one early day 2 right now(I guess by peoples standers) but i think he has a chance with a good senior bowl, combine to be a late first early second possablility, like Ugoh. Hes got size and hes quick, hell be good to whoever gets him, not like Quinten Groves

For some reason I don't see Terrance Taylor leaving early. Even if he has a spectacular year, I just have a feeling he'll stick around for a 4th year.
