View Full Version : 2009 Draft early entry watch list

This is a list of prospects who I think could potentially go out early for the draft. Now granted there are always the players who will leave early because they either do not like the coach, do not like losing or flat out dislike college and school work. It is almost public knowledge, we all know that there will be tons of QBs, RBs, WRs and CBs that go out early. Surprisingly though there will be a few standout DEs, specialized 3/4 OLBs and DTs that leave early potentially. I would have to look back but this year there could be a record for most redshirt sophomores coming out early for the draft.

Auburn defensive players, Antonio Coleman, Sen'Derrick Marks, and Jerraud Powers are all thinking about coming out.Coleman is having that good of a season? Powers I have always liked him, great tackler.


Also if Carson Butler enters the draft it is obviously because of the offensive system he is it, I bet Greg Matthews is in that same boat. Nonetheless, Butler would be an idiot to do that, he would be lucky to be drafted after such a lack luster season.


I was very surprised to see Maybin and McCoy are redshirt sophomores. Both are having great years and McCoy really should go out considering there are not many great DTs in the draft. Maybin as a 3/4 OLB, and he is playing just so well this year.

It could be that, or it could be the fact that he got beat out for his job by a true freshman. Butler is a poor route-runner, has awful hands, can't block etc...He SHOULD be a beast in this offense.


I bet Greg Matthews is in that same boat.

Don't quit your day job to become a gambler.

Nonetheless, Butler would be an idiot to do that, he would be lucky to be drafted after such a lack luster season.

Butler's not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed. He got moved to DE, by the way.

I imagine that Vince Oghobaase (DT, Duke) would have to at least consider coming out. I've got him as a 2nd rounder now, and depending on who comes out I think he could work his way into the 1st.

Besides, it's not like Duke is really worth sticking around for unless he wants to finish his degree.

If you get Britton and Black declaring you could have one of the best collection of O-linemen ever, so much so that teams drafting early could afford to trade down or even get a player in the early part of round 2.

Any word on DeMarco Murray coming out? My goodness that kid is playing lights out football. He is a playmaking machine, then again he is behind the most talented offensive line in college football. Still, he is a redshirt SOPH and could possibly go out depending on his situation.

With McKnight being inconsistent and sharing time with so many other great backs, Murray in my mind has kind of taken over the Reggie Bush type prospect in college football. Just flat out game breaker that can take it to the house on any play.

12-03-2008, 09:41 PM
I think Britton should come out, he'll be a top 20 pick and probably even higher if he does. I still like A. Smith and Oher more but Britton really does move his feet well and is playing great. I'd probably put him ahead of Monroe and J. Smith though. I'd love to see one of the top LTs drop to the gmen, I love how Diehl's playing but he just can't handle the elite speed rushers and would be just dominant at RT.

I watched him pretty closely against Sc and Oregon State and he looked the part and will be checking him out against ASU this weekend. I would be curious how they determine whether someone gets a 1st round grade. It has to be pretty arbitrary.

Don't get me wrong, Britton is a good player but he's definitely below Andre Smith, Eugene Monroe, Michael Oher and Jason Smith. At least. Could he potentially be a late first / early second rounder in 2009? Sure. However, if he goes back he'll be one of the Top 2-3 seniors offensive tackles going into next year and a likely first rounder.

I don't want to call the guy out because he has seemed very nice in my brief interactions with him but the person who is hyping Britton as this GREAT prospect is the same one who had Fili Moala as the #1 overall pick a few months ago.

Ohio State coach Jim Tressel, who watched junior tailback Chris "Beanie" Wells win four awards at the team's banquet yesterday, was asked whether Wells faces a tough decision in regard to leaving for the NFL after the Fiesta Bowl.
"If it were me, it wouldn't be tough," Tressel said.

He should go?

"Shoot, yeah," Tressel said. "In my opinion he ought to be one of the first five guys picked. I know he is very focused, and this game (against Texas) is very important to him but we've always said if you're going to be a top-round pick, you ought to think about going."

South Carolina players, Emanual Cook, Captain Munnerlyn, Eric Norwood, Jared Cook, and Darian Stewart have all applied for status.I think applying for status is just they want to know where they stand. Norwood has a chance because he is a potential OLB in a 3/4 but really he would not be some high pick if he came out. Same with Cook, he is a nice big WR but really another year would do him good. Stewart, that is ridiculous, he is a undersized outside linebacker, sure he is good but not that good, and really he has the body of a safety. Cook and Munnerlyn are the two that could easily come out, especially Munnerlyn.


I heard that Arthur Jones (DT, Syracuse), Knowshon Moreno and Matthew Stafford are pretty much locks to come out.

Same with McCoy (LeSean) to stay. Jones I have not seen him much, cannot believe they actually have a good football player up in Syracuse. Moreno and Stafford I agree are almost locks, especially Stafford. McCoy I bet is gone, too weak of class for senior RBs.


And Gresham better leave, he is a potential top 15 pick arguably. The kid is playing so good from the tight end position and is physically perfect, strong and fast. Almost like Vernon Davis athletically, but with actual route running ability and hands.

Clemson corners Crezdon Butler and Chris Chancellor, along with CJ Spiller, wide reciever Jacoby Ford, and guard Thomas Austin have all filed paperwork for the draft.

Ricky Sapp was going too but didnt because of his partially torn ACL.

If healthy, I think Sapp would send in paperwork and come out. I think Spiller leaves. Butler has nice numbers, can tackle, and has hands. Depending on what he runs is what scheme he will fit in best with. Jacoby Ford needs more time IMO. He is a track guy playing football. Although he could be a good return man.

He has the body of a safety probably because he plays safety. Just a wild idea I'm throwing out there.

Cook declared academically ineligible, lock to declare. Munnerlyn is also practically a lock to declare.

Cordle's kind of ******. He's not going to play center with Brewster there and as a guard his best fit would be in a zone blocking system, which Ohio State might do a bit more of with Pryor but traditionally has not been their thing. I think he's like Hartline, drafted about the same (or not) whether he comes out this year or next. I doubt Ballard comes out although the move to the spread (sort of) may marginalize him as well. Russell and Washington should go back. Both would be late picks this year but could be mid-rounders next year if things go their ways.

Beanie Wells is the only one that should come out. None of the other six are close to ready for the NFL. Then again, Ballard has nothing to gain by coming back. Ohio State tight ends don't do anything except block right now, and like RFTH said, the spread won't help that either.

RFTH, didn't Cordle move to left guard after Brewster took over his center job?
