I know that starting new threads for Big Boards is a bit annoying, but this is my first post in about 2 years and I really wanted to get some feedback, nonetheless I appologize. So here is my top 32 prospects with crude NFL comparisons. Let me know what you think.

1. N Suh DT Nebraska—R Seymour DT/DE Raiders
2. G McCoy DT Oklahoma—K Williams DT Vikings
3. D Bryant WR Oklahoma State—T Owens WR Bills
4. R Okung OT Oklahoma State—D Ferguson OT Jets
5. E Berry S Tennessee—E Reed S Ravens (a bit cliché, but quite valid I think)
6. J Clausen QB Notre Dame—A Rodgers QB Packers
7. R McClain ILB Alabama—D Harris ILB Jets (Rolando is more athletic though, but similar toughness and build)
8. J Haden CB Florida—N Clements CB 49ers
9. C Spiller RB Clemson—B Westbrook RB Eagles
10. B Graham DE/OLB Michigan—L Woodley OLB Steelers
11. J Gresham TE Oklahoma—K Winslow TE Buccaneers
12. B Bulaga OT Iowa—M Roos OT Titans
13. D Williams DT Tennessee—B Raji DT Packers
14. D Morgan DE Georgia Tech—W Smith DE Saints
15. T Mays S USC—A Wilson S Cardinals
16. S Bradford QB Oklahoma—M Schaub QB Texans
17. B Spikes ILB Florida—K Dansby LB Cardinals
18. S Kindle OLB Texas—D Ware OLB Cowboys
19. B Price DT UCLA—T Harris DT Bears
20. E Thomas S Texas—N Collins S Packers
21. M Iupati G Idaho—J Evans G Saints
22. J Dwyer RB Georgia Tech—J Lewis RB Browns
23. B Campbell OT Maryland—E Monroe OT Jaguars
24. G Tate WR Notre Dame—S Smith WR Giants
25. S Weatherspoon LB Missouri—J Beason LB Panthers
26. A Davis OT Rutgers—J Brown OT Saints

I'm a sucker for comparisons. The ones I differ on.

3. D Bryant WR Oklahoma State—T Owens WR Bills This is a stretch but eh

4. R Okung OT Oklahoma State—D Ferguson OT Jets More like Clady imo

6. J Clausen QB Notre Dame—A Rodgers QB Packers No.Disagree. Maby Eli Manning

8. J Haden CB Florida—N Clements CB 49ers I don't think so. I think Haden is generally being rated too high. I'll say at his very best-Asante Samuel

12. B Bulaga OT Iowa—M Roos OT Titans J.Gross imo.

15. T Mays S USC—A Wilson S Cardinals Uh-Ah. Tebucky Jones.

17. B Spikes ILB Florida—K Dansby LB Cardinals That's funny-I'd say McClain's more like Dansby and Spikes more like Harris.

18. S Kindle OLB Texas—D Ware OLB Cowboys Wow. Manny Lawson.

22. J Dwyer RB Georgia Tech—J Lewis RB Browns Ouch. Ouch. Willis McGahee.

I like all the others. Board is good imo save Spikes-he's got injury concerns to answer.

The Joe Haden- Asante Samuel comparison u just made does not work at all. Asante is very good at jumping routs and comming up with INTs, but he is a horrible tackler and doesn't help at all in the run or blitz game. Haden does not jump routs as well as Samuel, but is an excellent tackler and is a big part of the run and blitz game.

Point taken. Though Asante has improved quite a bit since he was drafted and can lay the wood from time to time. How bout: Haden-smaller Carlos Rogers
