These are very odd rankings to me, like crazy odd, but I guess everyone has their own opinion.

Boy, it seems really similar to the case of Robert Griffin III. People were saying the exact same thing about him this time last year. Obviously, Robinson is going to have to improve. He's been developmental as a QB the last couple years. If he can throw 64% this year, and really show some strides from a pure passing stand-point, he could be next years RGIII. I'm not saying he is...yet, but there is that potential there.

Even as a special teams guy, he's such a great athlete, I think he is a top 100 prospect.

As far as these being fairly odd positional rankings...well, I haven't included any underclassmen in here yet.

Denard is not a pro qb prospect. He is a great running QB, great player, ok arm and good character. He could get selected as a Brad Smith type - I would use a 2nd rounder on him but no way is he a full time QB at the next level.

Tyler Wilson should be number 2 behind Barkley as well.

I never had really understood why people do that, as if underclassmen will not declare? Usually underclassmen control the first few rounds of the NFL draft.

But if you are only doing seniors, where in the world are these players? Not all great players but a few are at or near the top of their position if you only look at seniors.

But I guess you did only go 10 deep so maybe that is why.

I'm going off of what I've seen and heard. It's still very early, and of course these are just initial interest picks. But I'll tell you upfront, I've also omitted some players that have injury concerns. That's why you don't see like Christine Michael on there.

I can't imagine people were saying anything close to what they say about Robert Griffin. Have you seen Denard throw the ball?

I'm far too lazy to go back and look, but no, people were not saying the exact same things last year about Griffin.

Has he played any receiver before though? I get that he's fast, but does he have good hands?

I see him more as a wildcat back.

You really seem to undervalue Tyler Wilson, and Tyler Bray isn't on there at all. I might be in the minority thinking that Matt Barkley is super overrated as well, but it might just be me not liking USC prospects.

I'm from Michigan. Of course I've seen Denard throw. It's been ugly, no dispute. But you're wrong. Mel Kiper even said on Friday's coverage of the NFL Draft that RGIII was a guy that, last year, was being scouted to move to WR in the NFL. I'm trying to find Youtube confirmation on that.

If you go back, statistically, RGIII has been a more proficient passer than Robinson ever has. RGIII was only below 60% his freshman year. Denard has been struggling to get to 60%. But I do know this about Denard: He's a hard worker and he has made strides throwing the ball since Hoke took over. Athletically, he's one of or the best prospects in the draft. If he really wants to play QB in the NFL, I expect a good year from him in 2012.

Again, I might be undervaluing some guys, and I might be overvaluing Denard. But with his athletic ability, if he can show pro scouts that he's making strides in throwing the ball, he can easily be a 1st round pick.

If Mike Mauti is healthy, he's first round talent with 2nd/3rd round injury concerns.

I'm sensing a little Big 10 bias, but it's as good a list as any.

I follow Michigan a bunch since my dad is a michigan guy through and through, so I have seen Denard play.

Since I mainly follow Uconn, I watched RGIII play us his freshman year.

RGIII was a better passer as a frosh than Denard is now. Back then, Griffin was making plays any way he could, so that was a lot of running. Not because he was a terrible passer, just out of need. That Baylor team was pretty awful back then, but you were just awed by him.

For Denard, I just don't see him being a QB. He seems to be better with a scramble first mentality. I just don't see him being a guy you can draft to go through the progressions before thinking about taking off running. Can he develop that? Possibly, but I don't see it any time soon.

I don't think even a highlight reel of his passes will help him. Totally anecdotal, but I remember a ton of passes where he would scramble around throw up a duck and the receiver made a great catch for big yardage.

That being said, there could be some crazy development this next year. I don't know if he is one of those guys that is dead set on being a QB at the next level. If he is dead set on it, he better be working like crazy to improve the nfl style qb stuff. If not, enjoy being the face of a revitalized big blue and let the NFL guys decide where they play you.

Robinson strikes me as a bit more athletic and bit better passer than Antwaan Randle-El.

But still not an NFL QB

The Denard/Griffin comparison is just as bad as the Griffin/Newton comparison IMO.

Denard/Randle El makes alot of sense though.

Guys I think are really good looking prospects for the 2013 draft:

Matt Barkley-QB
Robert Woods-WR
Marcus Lattimore-RB
Manti T'eo-MLB
David Amerson-CB
Tyler Bray-QB
Tyler Wilson-QB
Keenan Allen-WR
William Gholston-DE
Jackson Jeffcoat-DE
Sam Montgomery-DE/OLB
Jarvin Jones-DE/OLB
Kevin Reddick-LB
Alex Okafor-DE
Landry Jones-QB
Logan Thomas-QB
Johnathan Hankins-DT
Johnathan Banks-CB
Star Lotuleilei-DT
Bradley Roby-CB
Sean Porter-OLB
Marquess Wilson-WR
Michael Dyer-RB
Spencer Ware-RB
Knile Davis-RB
Montee Ball-RB
Da'Rick Rogers-WR
Tyler Eifert-TE
DJ Fluker-RT
Barrett Jones-OG
TJ McDonald-S
Barkevious Mingo-DE

I don't know why people aren't talking about Kevin Reddick, Williams Gholston, and Bradley Roby more. Well, I guess Roby is only a redshirt sophomore but he is destined to be a #1 probably in 2014 if not 2013. Gholston will be a top 10 pick at DE, just watch.
