NFL Draft – My Top 25
March 29, 2011 at 8:29 am
- Patrick Peterson: Physical press corner who I can see playing CB for five years and moving to safety like Rod Woodson.
- AJ Green: Smooth route-runner who can succeed in any pro offense.
- Marcell Dareus: Strong and quick force in the middle of the defense. Combine separated him from Fairley.
- Von Miller: One of the safest picks in the draft, shined in the Senior Bowl.
- Nick Fairley: The beast of the SEC last season has drawn the boom-or-bust label. Compares favorably to Sapp.
- Julio Jones: Physical and gifted receiver whose ceiling is unknown.
- Robert Quinn: Gifted edge rushed who Mayock compared to Ware.
- Cam Newton: Sky is the limit but ego can get in the way.
- Anthony Castonzo: Feels like a safe and smart pick. Low risk/reward but LT.
- Tyron Smith: A little raw but lots of potential.
- Mark Ingram: Looked like next Emmitt in college, lots are sleeping on him.
- Cameron Jordan: Rising, huge and athletic.
- Adrian Clayborn: Beast off the edge, thick build.
- Prince Amukamara: Clearly the 2nd best CB in a pass happy league.
- Blaine Gabbert: Middle of the first safer spot.
- Ryan Kerrigan: Football player, pass rushing DE.
- Mike Pouncey: Not his bro but still very good.
- JJ Watt: Ran impressively, strong, and set at 3-4 DE.
- Cameron Heyward: Versatile DL w/NFL pedigree.
- Gabe Carimi: Rock solid in run game, best position RG or RT.
- Aldon Smith: Versatile rusher whose speed stands out
- Da’Quan Bowers: Never stood out for me and now hurt.
- Muhammad Wilkerson: DL who can play 3-4 or 4-3
- Corey Liuget: Is big, plays big.
- Akeem Ayers: Rush OLB who plays faster than in shorts.
