Finally, the 2009 draft is over. However, as soon as Kyle Succop's name was called to end the process, it only began the marathon that is the 2010 NFL Draft.

The following rankings are my positional rankings for every position on the field. These "Top Ten" players are the front runners to be one of the first players selected from there position come late April, 2010.

I'll share my first mock as well as my Top 25 Players of the 2010 NFL Draft within the next couple weeks.

Best and Blount are the top backs in this years class. Where is Stanley Havili in the fullback rankings?

I'd love to have Havili on the Cowboys. He probably blocks better than Deon Anderson who's specialty is supposed to be blocking and Havili certainly brings the offense of an H-back.

Take Josh Hull out of the middle linebacker rankings please. I hate saying that since I actually know the kid and played with him high school, but he's way too slow and just not NFL material. Absolutely great kid though. I would love for him to make it but I just don't think it's very realistic at all.

Where's Anthony Davis?

Where's Anthony Davis?

Was thinking the same thing. He'll be a top 15 selection. He's that good. Can't belive Arthur Jones is that low. He's an absolute beast and reminds me of Ty Warren. IMO there is no way he's not a 1st round prospect this time next year unless he's severly injured. His production is insane considering he's double teamed every week. Listen to this stat line 15 tackles 4 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks. That was Arthur Jones stat line in his game against Notre Dame. Yeah Notre Dame is average but 15 tackles is extremely impressive from any defensive tackle. He was double teamed that game and virtually unblockable. Either way this guy has big league talent and is so much better than Tyson Jackson.

Agreed. Blount is definitely too low, the guy's a stud!

why would Jimmy Clausen come out early?

I cant believe you dont have Sam Young or Eric Olsen on your list. Olsen is a top 5 guard for the upcoming draft (and my personal #3 behind Render and Jerry) and Young is the best RT in the upcoming draft(prolly number 6-7 in the total category) .

unless ND wins a bcs bowl(prolly wont happen) and he wins the heisman(will never happen this upcoming year, maybe the year after) he wont go. He knows the doubt concerning junior qb's and he wants to be the best not just good and the way to become the best is not jumping early.

clausen better get out while he can. christ is probably better.


anyway, talk about a SICK DL class next year.

I think after next season Texas players WR-Jordan Shipley and OLB-Roddrick Muckelroy will be on lists like these.

Muckelroy is pretty underrated.

Kam Chancellor looking to have a big year after a disappointing one last year. He has potential to be very good

MaxV
04-30-2009, 12:37 PM
Jared Odrick should be in the DT top 10. He has a lot of potential, both as a 4-3 DT and 3-4 DE.

he was born in 87, he turns 22 this year, clearly that is very old.

All I know is the Florida defense this year will rival or be even better than USC's this last year. They are incredible on paper.

Royster over Blount and Snead over Tebow are both weird predictions.

Snead over Tebow is legit. If Snead can improve his consistency, he'll be the number two draft eligible quarterback, could be a top ten pick.

If you think Tebow is an NFL QB prospect, then you are either A) not well versed in what to look for when scouting a college QB, OR B) have never seen him actually throw the ball week in and week out.

Tebow has altered his mechanics and throwing motion over the offseason so you may need to hold negative judgment of him until we see the new product.

Even with that he's in a system that hinders his growth as a QB, mentally, which is about as bad as it gets. No matter what kind of mechanical changes he makes, it's really not going to make an impact on his draft grade, which should be third rounder at best. He's a project. Colt McCoy is a project. These guys are system QBs that will need a lot of time transitioning to an NFL style system.

Too many easy reads and easy throws. These kind of guys are like Sophmore QBs.

If he's going to improve as an NFL QB prospect this year, he's got the right QB coach to do it right now.

Few things:

1. I wasn't sure what the deal was with Myron Rolle. I've heard different things, whether it is continuing at Oxford or pursuing the NFL.

2. I ranked all eligible players, which is why Clausen is in the rankings. I'm not assuming that he is going to declare.

You forgot Dan LeFevour who could potentially go in the first if he has another great year.

I'm just wondering why McKnight is even on the list let alone ahead of Stafon Johnson.

How about you put Starks on that RB list like he should be and move Davonte Shannon above stiffs like Myron Rolle.

Brandon Graham is too low. Donovan Warren is too high.

Wheres Brandon Carter !!!!!!!!
And Mark Herzlich is to low....
Eric Norwood is a linebacker who im interested in next year. He is 6'0 and 280lbs right now. He runs in the 4.7 range.
