Maualuga is a beast and I consider him a better prospect than James Laurinaitis
I do too. Little Animal will not go top 5 though. His frame just isn't top 5 caliber. Probably not top 10 either. I still think he's a great prospect, but I'm not a huge fan on him in the middle. I could see him dominating at WLB.
My top two players for next year's draft, as of right now, are both OTs. Andre Smith and Michael Oher. Max Unger and Eugene Monroe are also going to be high picks. Next year's OT class could rival this year's.

Please tell me this is a joke....I mean seriously, please tell me this is a joke.
I'm an Illini fan and I'm asking this. Juice has some very nice tools to work with. He's got a great arm, he's very strong, has pretty good pocket presense, and is very mobile. Plus he's a leader and is a hard worker/film rat.
He wouldn't even get drafted next year. I think Juice has a future in the NFL, but not until he finishes his senior year and even then he's a middle-late round pick because of his size, his accuracy issues, and the fact he needs some work. Ala an Andre Woodson this season.

Despite looking better against an underachieving Eagles team, I still think the Bears are one of the worst teams in the NFL. I smell a blowout victory by the Lions this week and a division sweep.
After what just happened to Andre Woodson and Colt Brennan, you could very well be right.
Here is what I'll say.
This time last year, who here considered Matt Ryan a top three pick?
How about Alex Smith after the '04 draft?
After the '03 draft, how many knew Ben Roethlisberger? Or even how to spell Ben Roethlisberger? I'm guessing anyone who even heard his name spelled it Ben Roethshamalamadingdong.
How about Jay Cutler one full year before he was drafted?
Remember when we all though the top QB for this years draft would be Brian Brohm?
Who will be the #1 pick next year? Someone we're not even considering.
Matt Ryan was a fringe 1st rounder at the start of the season.
Alex Smith was a bit more of a suprise.
Anyone that didn't know who Big Ben was, wasn't paying very much attention at all.
Jay Cutler, again, probably a 2nd round guy.
And only Smith was the #1 guy. Who would have thought Long, Long, McFadden, and Dorsey would be top 5 guys last year? Basically everyone. It's not that huge of a shock most of the time.
I think the team with the top pick next year probably won't want a RB even if Beanie is the BPA like McFadden was this year. Who are the 'lucky' candidates? Kansas City, Atlanta, Oakland, San Francisco, Baltimore? Maybe if Chicago or Detroit has the #1 pick but I don't think they will. The 5 I mentioned could all use a stud tackle and not a runningback, so I say Oher is probably the favorite to go #1. Lots of good tackles between him and Loadholt, Boone, Unger, Monroe, and Andre Smith. I'll laugh if someone uses the #1 on Tim Tebow or Matt Stafford, I don't think either of those guys are gonna be good pros unless they really improve from last year (for Tebow in the pocket passer category, for Stafford in the consistency and accuracy category).
