Looks like one hell of a first round so far. I counted about 16-18 players that I could confidently say are first rounders.

Like always, I have to say DWill doesn't belong in the WR group yet.

Bit of a long read, but these are my early top ten rankings for next year without the kickers and punters, some positions have honorable mentions as well below dotted lines. Just some guys to look out for really. And my number #1 small school sleeper is Hampton junior DE Kendall Langford who got 15.5 TFL and 8 sacks playing in a 3-4 last year. He's big at 6-6, 290lbs and comes from a school that produces a few NFL draft picks.

There's gonna be crazy LB's and RB's next year

NittanyLion2k7

Penn State Guys :

Anthony Morelli, QB - Senior - Huge armed quarterback, with a strong year might be able to see round 1.
Dan Connor, LB - Senior - Switching to ILB and that might hurt him, he's more of a natural at weak side OLB. Should garner first round consideration also.
Austin Scott, RB - Senior - A very shifty runner kind of a Kenneth Irons type. With a big year he should see the 2nd or 3rd round.
Justin King, CB - Junior - Probably the preseason cornerback prospect that everyone is pegging as elite, tremendous balance and speed and should be a lock for round 1 if he declares.
Derrick Williams, WR - Junior - If he has a huge year and decides to come out, expect him to receive Ted Ginn Jr. like hype. An elite athlete that is unmatched on the field, 6'0" 200 lbs and a flat 4.3 burn.. if he can snap out of his funk and they start throwing him the ball, I wouldn't be surprised to see him come out early. IF he has a huge year, lottery lock. If he has a subpar year, expect him to return for his senior season or he's looking at possibly a 2nd or 3rd round pick on measureables alone.

There is absolutely no possible way that Morelli goes round 1. He may see it while watching the Draft, but no friggin way he gets drafted in round 1. I'm thinking 3-4

Derrick Williams would have to have a Heisman year to receiver Tedd Ginn hype. I'm not totally knocking him, I like him, but just saying he's not on Ginn's level yet.

Watch out for Kenny Philips.

Leman is a beast.

Yessir!

Might be one of the most underrated players in the country defensively. The guy single handedly took over against Ohio State. I can see him as a first rounder personally if he does what he did last year.

Kinda sucks that he's injured right now though.

There may be no Calvin Johnson but look at the guys there. Outside of CJ next years group matches up fairly well with this year's.
