Pretty good, you need to add Seth Olsen, JR RG Iowa and Charles Godfrey SR CB Iowa though, probably Dace Richardson JR LT and Anthony Moeaki JR TE, also Iowa, as well.

I say this because Godfrey is the biggest cornerback in college football, while still running a 4.38, and Olsen will be a 4-year starter on the O-Line. Dace and Anthony because every starting LT, and TE in the Kirk Ferentz era has been drafted.

Absolutely shocked u have Rafael Little that high...in his defense he has never had a good OL to run behind and therefore I think he might be a better pro than college player.

That's an interesting, detailed list. I was very impressed that you had Kenny Britt on there. He just exploded at the end of 2006.

I'm curious as to why you rank Ray Rice so low. He's not a perfect prospect (only 4.6 speed), but should be at worse the #4 Junior RB.

I'm also wondering if you've seen any of Eric Foster (can play DT or DE). This guy was amazing last year, all over the field. It's jarring to see a bust like Nate Robinson on this list and not Foster.

I dont agree with all ur rankings (Morrelli sr qb looked terrible every game i saw last year, Kyle Wright sr qb should be on no list for top qbs he probally wont even start, Yvenson Bernard sr rb should be at least 4, Malcom Kelly jr. wr should be ranked way higher, and Lawrence Jackson should be no lower than 2 in the de ratings). This is an awesome list to start the season off. How long did it take?

Add Junior TE Chase Coffman from Missouri. He ll be a first or second round pick when he leaves. Also Sophmore qb Josh Freeman from Kansas State. He has the potential to be a first round pick in a couple years.

Damn good list. Good to have someone like you here at these forums. Nice effort. I don't know how anybody could argue with the rankings before the season even started.

You have an obvious Miami bias.

Great list. We should sticky this.

bored of education
05-09-2007, 08:29 AM
I was about to say something along that lines. Some players Juniors or Sophmores are ranked more on potential or what could happen rather than what has already happened.

respect for the time and effort for that list good work.

love the love that you gave Santos from UNH, who I actually think could be a starter in some day but hey thats my UNH bias lol

05-09-2007, 08:44 AM
I've yet to figure out peoples love for Willie Young. The guy hasn't done anything yet. He'd be probably 10th or so on pro prospects at NCSU for me. Are you ranking him as a DE prospect or OLB prospect? He's a bit more football savvy Manny Lawson, imo, but I still wouldn't put him THAT high. I think Andre Brown and Toney Baker are vastly underrated on this board. Might be my red tinted glasses though. :)

18. Alley Broussard – LSU
-Has had his moments but never has made a true impact because LSU has had one of the most crowded backfields in college football over the last couple of seasons.

Not true in 2004 Alley Broussard lead LSU in rushing and was the starter over Joseph Addai.

142 att 867 yds 6.1 avg 10 TDs

Alley Broussard was primed to become the SEC's next Jamal Lewis going into 2005 but he tore his ACL and Joseph Addai become the starter and the rest is history. Some say ACL injuries take a couple of years to get over so who knows, he still has his senior year to prove himself.

But to say he never made a true impact is simpily not true.

I really enjoyed your actual anaysis. Great job on the QB's and very interesting stuff on the RB's although I am one of those who thinks Hart has absolutely no chance as a pro. His game just won't translate well to the next level. Too small, far too slow and injury prone = no pro career, IMO.
I really think doing 2009 and 2010 is really a waste of your time although I understand your love for the draft and why you did it. It's just that so much can change in a year or 2 except maybe for the top 5, that any ranking won't come close for awhile.
I'd like to see more of your analysis for other positions!!!

If Flynn starts I think he could have a shot at a late 1st day pick.

Very nice list though... it will help a lot on who to look for etc. etc.

seems Broussard got lazy after his injury....didnt he almost quit football?

Great list, love to see some future prospects on there. You don't seem like a huge fan of Sedrick Ellis or Tom Zbikowski, though. Great post regardless.

Correct he had a bad rehab and put on alot of weight to what was already a thick frame. He almost quit the team twice.

I'm not sure he'll ever bounce back but before the ACL injury he was a very good Jamal Lewis/Michael Bush/Lyndell White type of power back. He was starting over Addai and I believe he would have been a 1st rounder had he not got hurt. Now who knows.

He has a rap alter ego. Alley Cat. He raps and makes CD's and yes he got lazy.

His first video on there is my favorite. It was the last minute of the Capitol 1 Bowl when LSU was trying to wind down the clock.

I'm joking, good post, although I disagree with some of the rankings, the massive post that you put time in takes up for that.

Great to see K-Lew, James Hardy and Tracey Porter up there but I think IU Running Back Marcus Thigpen deserves a mention in either the 08 or 09 rankings because of his great return ability. He returned three kickoffs for TD's last season, was a first team All-American, and runs track (meaning he'll time well)

as the other ncstate guy said willie young is too high. hes a really athletic kid. great potential as a 34 olb. but he could dissapear into a nobody really easy. id move him down to 3 or 4.

as for the ncstate running backs. tony baker is overrated. hes not even really top 20. andre brown should be top 5 though. he is a monster.

That's a pretty bad Miami Bias. Graig Cooper #1 Frosh RB? Robert Marve #1 Frosh QB?

Dude, Malcom Jenkins is way too low. To not have Chris Wells as the best ranked Sophomore RB is laughable and to have Ray Rice as the eleventh best Junior Rb is also absurd. Good job compiling the list though

One note on your senior CB's. Roshaun Fellows was dismissed from the team last week. He was bigtime overrated anyway. He's soft, can't tackle anything.

Not to be a homer but how come Colt McCoy isn't on the QB list? Also, you're missing a lot of young UT db's that are going to be very good IMO. Sophomore's Chykie Brown and Deon Beasley will see significant time this year...if they don't start. And Freshman Curtis Brown could see some time as well.

When it's all said and done, many Horn fans these guys will be better than M. Griffin, A. Ross, C. Griffin, and maybe even Huff.

Add Sophomore Lonyae Miller (RB - Fresno State)

Played excellent last season spelling Dwayne Wright and has been extremely impressive in Spring ball so far.

I'm going to conference homer the hell out of this thread:

QB:

So Nate Davis (Ball State) 6'3 230 4.87
1975 yards, 18 TD's, 8 INT- 2006 Numbers put up in 9 full games. Wasn't that starter at the beginning of the season.

So Tim Hiller (Western Michigan) 6'4 215 4.69
1107 yards, 20 TD's, 3 INT- 2005 numbers as a true freshman. These numbers were put up in only 5 full games due to injury. Redshirted in 2006.

I'll post more when i get home.

This must have taken a good amount of time to compile, props on the effort. I second the suggestion that it be stickied, I think it would be a nice reference.

I do have one addition, RS Soph Riley Skinner - Wake Forest. I know it was considered a down year for the ACC, but it's hard to argue with ACC ROY and Second Team All Conference honors.

good college player....not much of an NFL prospect

I don't think that he's too low for this list, but by the end of this season he could very well be the top CB prospect in the country. While he hasn't done a whole lot production wise to get national attention, he's big physical with good cover skills. The perception that I've heard is that his speed isn't top notch, but he ran track this year (I have some buddies on the track team) and I was impressed by his splits in the 4x100. I bet he could lay down an impressive 40 at the combine and be a top 10 pick.

As far as RB's, LSU should have 3.

Alley Broussard who is already up there.

Keiland Williams should be the top Sophomore RB.

Richard Murphy should be somewhere on the Freshman list.

Ok I read through some of the replys and I'll try to explain some stuff. First off from my name people probably think I am a Miami fan and homer but I'm actually not. I was a huge Willie Williams fan and I joined the boards around the time he was still on the team so I just based my name off that. I guess having Marve over Clausen made people think I was a homer but actually I just really like Marve as a prospect. He may not be #1 of his class but when all is said and done I think he'll be Top 5. Cooper on the other hand I can argue as the top prospect in his class. I know some people will throw McKnight in my face but going to USC was a stupid move for McKnight and I don't think he'll see a lot of time on the field. I saw him in the game against Hoover and he was unreal but I just think he should have went to a school that didn't have such a deep backfield. He will also need to learn not to dance so much. And he benifited lots from the veer offense that John Curtis runs. Cooper in my opinion right now is the most complete RB of his class. Although I think McCoy has loads of potential. Clay too, but he has to sit behind Hill. I saw couple comments on Willie Young. The only reason I have him so high is because I think he has the ability to be the next Manny Lawson (who was a 1st Rounder). I'll go by position by position

QB - The only QB I would take over Josh Johnson would be Brian Brohm but I knew I couldn't put him at 2 cause every relpy would have been Josh Johnson? Josh Johnson? blah blah blah what an idiot. Trust me I know a lot of people haven't heard about him but everyone around the San Diego program raves and gushes over him. No QB besides Brohm is worth a first round pick and I don't think any of them (except for Johnson and unless Matt Ryan develops a lot) turn into starters in the NFL. I thought I would catch heat over having Henne low but he just doesn't do it for me. I think Morelli will have a big season and shut everybody up. Woodson could be the next Russell. He's at about the same point Russell was last year at this time. I can see Longshore having an insane season throwing to Jackson and Jordan and he could be a Heisman candidate. Juice Williams to Arrelious Benn is a combination no Big Ten will want to face in the coming years.

RBs - No Senior RB is worth a first rounder. Savage and Choice are my two favorites. I'll admit I have a little thing for Choice ever since I saw him in the Gator Bowl. The range of opinion on Mike Hart is huge and I really don't have love or hate for the guy. A player that I didn't mention in my list that may be worth keeping an eye out for is Austin Scott out of Penn State to see if he finally reaches expectations. As for juniors I love Stewart and would take him over McFadden just cause I hate McFadden's running style. I go to West Virginia and have heard a lot of stuff about Slaton that may be worth looking into. Plus I think he's somewhat soft injury wise and benefits from being in the same backfield as Pat White. Antone Smith is a beast and will breakout this year. I really don't understand everyone's infatuation with Felix Jones but I do think he'll end up as 1st/2nd rounder so I had to put him up there. Ray Rice is small and slow and will have an extreme amount of wear and tear on his body by the time he comes out. Andre Brown could put himself in position to be one of the 4 or 5 best RBs in his class. Any of my Top 4 RBs of the sophomore class could be #1. There all special. I know it's too early to start takling about high school RBs but let me just say Justin Johnson and Desmond Scott are two of the best I've ever seen

WRs - Really think Limas Sweed can fall off the map this season. Keenan Burton can be a guy that moves himself into the first round this year. Doucet or Bowman will be the first WR off the board. I loveeeee Amarri Jackson and have been saying it since last Spring. I thought he would breakout last season and he really didn't but this year I think he can. Shaheer McBride is a player that every NFL team needs to get a tape of. Pierre Garcon is this years version of Derek Stanley. Everyone expects Turner to be special so no surprises there. I went back and watched the 2005 Army All American game last night (Desean Jackson was super talented but a super huge Jerk... in high school). Hopefully he's got his mind right. Say I have a Miami bias all you want but Sam Shields is bringing back the Miami WR tradition . Trindon Holiday out of LSU might be the fastest player I've ever seen. Demaryius Thomas might have people forgetting about Calvin Johnson sooner then they think. Two Big 12 players that I didn't have on the list that people should keep an eye on - R.J. Sumrall of Iowa State and Marcus Henry of Kansas.

TEs - Ingram we'll explode this year and could move himself up to be the top TE taken and be a first rounder. I'm a big Fred Davis fan and don't think the production we'll ever be there because there is so much firepower on that team but he is still a great recieving threat. Carlson is like Fasano solid but not spectacular. Kellen Davis is a guy I'm going to keep an eye on. The Junior TE class is loaded and there are as many as 6 (if you count Coffman) first round prospects in there. Bennet's my favorite just because of his athleticism but I think Beckum will probably be the highest picked out of any of them. I saw Jermichael Finley when they broadcasted Texas' spring game on NFL network last season and have loved him ever since. If Warren ever gets the off field stuff straight he's a first rounder.

OTs - Don't think Long is the can't miss some are making him out to be. He has to imprvoe a lot to be drafted where Joe Thomas was last year. You can tell when youre watching him that Sam Baker is just pure mean. That guy has the attitude to succeed. I saw Gaither in person at the Thursday night game against West Virgina and there is no doubt he is the most talented OT in the country when he is motivated. The motivation thing is a huge question with him though and it sounds like he is in big Ralph's doghouse a lot. Sam Young is a stud and could probably be a first rounder if he was able to come out after this year.

OGs - There is absolutley nobody on Ohers level he could probably even stay at Left Tackle in the NFL.

DTs - Dorsey is Dorsey and everyone already agrees he's the big dog of this class. Fluellen could be one of those sneaky Florida State senior DT breakouts. Not sold on Ellis yet. Moore could be one of those freakish Maryland athletes that could make himself a lot of money in February and March. Okam had huge hype coming to last season and did nothing to show it was warranted. On a side note: Does anyone know what the Hell happened to Callahan Bright? I know he went to Hargrave but haven't heard anything since. When I saw high school tapes of this guy he was unblockable.

DEs - Campbell is the best prospect since Julius Peppers. He is just one of those freaks that come along every 5 or 6 years. Louis Holmes is a stud and should be a first rounder next year. I can see why Pete Carrol wanted him so bad. Chris Long is a solid player and even if he weren't Howies son he would still be my top senior DE. Tommy Blake is the next Kamerion Wimbley and is a perfect 3-4 OLB. Bruce Davis is rising up everybodys boards after last season. Lawrence Jackson needs a big rebound season this year or else the first round is a pipe dream. I'm starting to really dig South Florida players and Julmiste is one of my favorite's and had somewhat of a breakout season last year but this year he put's his name on the map. Was super impressed by Albert McClellan when I saw him up in Morgantown last year. The only thing I noticed was that he asked for a breather every two plays and would dog it sometimes because he was out of condition but it was the first game of the season. Prediction: Martez Wilson is a household name within two years.

LBs - Let me put it out there that I have been fans of Cushing and Toal since there high school days up in North Jersey. I'm glad Cushing dropped the cocky attitude and has excelled over on the West Coast. Toal was my idol as a high school football player (he was a senior I was a sophomore) and I hope he gets everything back on track for his senior season. As for everybody else... There is not a LB in the country I take over Rey Maualuga. When he is focused he is just on a different playing field then the rest. I really like Brinkley when I heard about him last preseason and then I saw the Mississippi State game and have been on him ever since. I have never seen a more physical LB then what I saw from Tray Blackmmon when he played at Lagrange. Tray: Get your act togetether and bulk up a little and you'll be special. Phillip Wheeler is Ernie Sims take 2. J Leman was the best LB that nobody talked about last year. I like Adibi more then I like Hall but there pretty equal talent wise. Jonathan Goff is one of the scariest looking presences in this class. Wesley Woodyard is the sleeper of the Senior class. I saw Thomas Keith in the B.C. game last year and he is worth a Late Round pick. Erin Henderson will be better then his brother. I'm not as high on Laurinitis as others are. I love Seminole LBs and think Hayes, Nicholson, and Sims are a deadly combination if healthy. Tommie Campbell out of PITT is one of the most athletic LBs in the country and we'll get more attention as he gets older.

CBs - Say what you want about Paul Olvier but Cason is the elite player of this class hands down. Would have been the best last year if he came out. The Top 4 CBs of the Junior class are all so close and there hard to distinguish who is the best of the bunch. Virginia Tech has a couple keepers in Flowers and Harris. Bowman when he is healthy is a monster.

Safties - Senior class is absolutley pitiful. Nehemiah Warrick is the only player I like. I won't even get started on Zbikowski cause I can go on for about 5 or 6 paragraphs on that kid. Let's just say you should stick to Boxing, Mr. wanna be tough guy. Kenny Phillips is the best defensive player in college. If he comes out he is probably at the top of my board. Patrick Chung and Torri Williams are two players I expect to have big seasons. Jamario O'Neal hasn't lived up to expectations. Taylor Mays maybe the scariest safety in football. I didn't think Rolle would live up the hype comng out of high school but he proved me wrong. Antwine Perez is a better fit at Maryland. He will be killling kids in a year. Everyone needs to watch out for Quinton Andrews. I see him up close every week. Watch Out.

Wow that took exactly 26 minutes to type.

Great list and a lot of work I am sure. One word of caution. When writing for your buddies website be sure not to use " I". You don't want to make it read as singular observations or opinions. It will read more proffesional if you state it as third person factual data. Nice job, keep working...

Whether people agree with it or not, props for making such a detailed and exhausting list.

As a Wisconsin fan, one thing stood out to me. I really do not think it's being homeristic at all to say that Senior WR Paul Hubbard should be somewhere in the top 40.
