Tyrod Taylor.......Year after year he has improved as a PASSER, although he is very mobile/athletic he looks to make that throw now. I get mad for the fact that all the scouts say he needs to make a position change at the next level to be successful. Looking back at the game against Stanford that was the best throw he has made in his whole entire college career. I'm very pleased with Taylor's decision to stick it out at the QB position in the Shrine Game. He has been a QB all his life, it's not like in HS he was considered an ATH prospect. He will prove all doubters wrong come Draft Day.

Leonard Hankerson- He's been my guy for a few years now so....

Non Hurricane or Scarlet Knight, I would have to go with Delone Carter and Quan Sturdivant.

Non-Hurricane, I'd have to go with a three-way tie between Jon Baldwin, Ryan Williams and Patrick Peterson.

MASON FOSTER - This is my guy. I've been hyping him all year. Love the way he plays. Super high energy, high intensity player who played as good as any LB in the country this year. Might be the most complete LB in the draft. He's going to make some team very happy.

EDMUND GATES - I've become a huge fan of his in recent weeks. Runs silky smooth routes and is pretty damn explosive (said he raced Johnny Knox several times and never lost....Knox ran a 4.29 at the combine). Tracks the ball very well and has great hands to boot. I think he's right there in the second tier of WR's. It also doesn't hurt that he has dreads and a great beard. ;)

PATRICK PETERSON - Should've been a Cane but whatever. I still love 'em and still love watching him play.

Out of the top guys Peterson, after that Noel Devine or Jarvis Jenkins.

A Perfect Score

I've been all over Cam Jordan for months now. He's far and away my favorite prospect in this class. I'm also really high on Demarco Murray and Shane Vereen at RB and Jimmy Smith at CB. Another guy I love is Owen Marecic from Stanford, but that might just be my illogical love for FBs kicking in.

EDIT: Damn, can't believe I forgot Brooks Reed. I'm a big fan of his as well. And I love Herzlich for the same reasons as everyone else. I'm also big of Stephen Paea.

If I have to pick just one player I'll take Patrick Peterson for my Browns. But there are others I believe are just as good as him at their positions, namely DE Da'quan Bowers, RB Mark Ingram, and DT Nick Fairley.

If the Browns get one of those four on draft day the player will be great value at number 6. Bowers doesn't get talked about alot compared to Peterson, Fairley, Green, and Newton, but I think he's as good a football player as any of them. And I'll say the same for Ingram. The team that drafts him will have a quality RB. Right now I believe he's underrated.

Jacquizz Rodgers and Torrey Smith are leaps and bounds my favorite prospects in this draft class.

Mason Foster

By far the most fun defensive player to watch on film. He is just like Luke kuechly, a guy who just flies around the field making plays all game with his instincts and motor.

I like this kid named Kelvin Shepperd. Big linebacker, who is a tackling machine, and has the best instincts in the draft. If he is able to improve in coverage a bit more, and get a little faster, you are getting an absolute stud for your linebacking group.

Corey Liuget is probably my favorite. Also like: Brandon Harris, Colin McCarthy, Kelvin Sheppard, Mike Pouncey, Ben Ijalana, Martez Wilson, Christian Ponder, Ricky Stanzi, and Tim Barnes.

My favorites last year had pretty good seasons. Loved Nate Allen, Maurkice Pouncey, Ben Tate, Owusu-Ansah, and James Starks.

The two DL with the first name Cameron. I don't think it'd shock anyone if those two guys because stahs. Then there's Quinn...I also think they'll be 3 of my top 10 players after combine...maybe...depends.

A.J Green and Robert Quinn because i played against both in school HS 3 times. Also wrestled and sadly lost to Quinn.

I'm starting to like Mario Addison of Troy a lot as a 4-3 defensive end. He shows really good quickness off the snap, and gets good leverage going underneath offensive tackles. I don't like him as a 3-4 OLB prospect, but I think he could be a really effective pass-rusher, and he's pretty strong against the run, too.

I'm fine with these guys being your favorite prospects (you're free to like whoever the **** you want), but as a Browns fan, if we take Mark Ingram at #6, they will finally have forced my hand, and I will give up on them forever.

I don't think you'll be disappointed. Odds are heavily in favor of the Browns selecting a defensive player. D-line most likely.

Normally I'm not one to bump myself, but this guy was one of my favorite prospects in the draft (regardless of projected round), and although he ended up not getting drafted, he's already getting serious playing time for the Bears (as a 4-3 end), and making things happen. From http://blogs.suntimes.com/bears/2011/08/undrafted_rookie_de_mario_addi.html

"Undrafted rookie DE Mario Addison stands out
By Sean Jensen on August 19, 2011 1:16 PM | 11 Comments | No TrackBacks
Thanks to an active offseason, the Bears have a lot of depth along the defensive line. The club picked defensive tackle Stephen Paea in the second round of the NFL Draft, and they've added former first-round picks Vernon Gholston and Amobi Okoye.

But an undrafted rookie is turning heads and consistently making plays.

And he's from a smaller school with a reputation for developing pass rushers.

Undrafted rookie Mario Addison hails from Troy University, and he's hoping to be the latest pass rusher to come out of that Alabama school.

"One thing about Troy, we produce defensive ends," said Addison. "The coaches work with us, day after day, to make us rush men."

New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora and Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware both played at Troy.

Addison has distinguished himself with an explosive first step and his flexibility. With former Northwestern defensive end Corey Wootton sidelined after a knee scope, Addison is competing to earn the extra snaps. He's mostly going up against Gholston, and he currently has the edge.

"When [Wootton] went down, I was like, 'Ah man. I hate to see good players go down.' But I know when he went down, coach was looking for somebody to step up," Addison said. "I said, 'This is my opportunity to show what I'm about, because I know coach would give me more reps, if he put me in that second spot, which he did."

Okoye had the only two sacks in the preseason opener against the Bills. But Addison was largely responsible for the first one, flushing the quarterback out of the pocket and toward the sideline, where Okoye was the nearest defender in pursuit."
