I few guys on there are guys who I wouldn't say have first round potential. Actually, check that, it is just the FB position. FB has become so obsolete now that it is impossible for a FB to crack the first round. Most of the guys on the list do have first round potential, but some of the guys I disagree with are...
Jevan Snead: Not this year anyway, but if he waits a year or stays thorugh college, yes he will be a first rounder then, but not this year.
Craig Cooper: Similar situation here as well, plus he is in a system where he isn't featured yet.
Pat White: Too much of a "project" to make it into the first round, though he is a great athlete and may make the switch with some success.

There are a few sophomores that I would be on the fence with as well, but overall it is a solid list.

First, lose the fullback category.

Darry Beckwith is missing. So are Peria Jerry and Greg Hardy. Antoine Caldwell is a center (pretty sure about that). Duke Robinson? Overall a lot of your categories need more candidates, let's say two per potential pick (so there should be about 8-10 offensive tackles, just for starters.

It's Vontae Davis.

To be honest, this list seems hasty and shoddily constructed. I mean, glaring omissions, limited candidates (if you're calling it first round potential), and god-forbid spelling errors. Don't get me wrong, it is a good start, but it needs a lot of refining.

Did you forget Baylor OT Jason Smith and Oklahoma OG Duke Robinson?

Th more I look at this, the more I find missing.

HAmlin isn't there, and Painter isn't a top prospect. There are more, but I won't get on it too much, I certainly wouldn't want to do this.

Good job just a couple things I saw:
-Taylor Mays is a FS
-The homer in me thinks Greg Hardy and Peria Jerry should be on there
-SCAR's Eric Norwood should be on there as a 3/4 OLB
-Florida junior ILB Brandon Spikes needs to be on there
-Duke Robinson?

Good calls everyone. I will make a few changes, because really this is not my list, sure it is mostly how I think things will shake out. But it is basically just a conversation starter.

Pat White: Too much of a "project" to make it into the first round, though he is a great athlete and may make the switch with some success.I agree, the FB now that you mention it, no way they are first round picks. However Eldridge will be a possible star in the NFL as a blocker, like super star potentially. Especially in terms of the H-back position where they are a cross between a FB and TE.

Snead, sure he will probably not come out but considering he could I think if he has a great year it might be smart. The guy has so much potential and is playing so well.

Agree on White, but it is possible, all depends on what underclassmen come out. Because let us just say none come out, will never happen but just say it, then White becomes a potential top 3-4 WR as a SR.


OT Jason Smith Never seen him play before

Darry Beckwith is missing. So are Peria Jerry and Greg Hardy. I like Beckwith also but I do not think there is a chance he goes in the 1st round, especially with all the talented OL's in the draft and talented 3/4 OLBs and ILBs. As for Jerry and Hardy, I have not got a chance to see them play yet sadly. Saw Hardy last year, clearly talented but I would need to see more of him.

I really like Brandon Tate from UNC. Anyone else see this kid play? I think he might be able to crack the first round when/if he declares. Maybe not this next year, but the year after.
