Future Drafts

Postby CC » Sun Apr 03, 2005 6:45 pm

The offseason is a little slow and being the draft-fiend I am I'm jonesing for a little discussion. I'm gonna give my top 5 players from all of the players in HS, Fr., So., and Jr. classes not in the draft. Please feel free to comment.

Juniors

1. Matt Leinart, USC, QB
Not a huge fan, but anyone who wins the Heisman, 2 National championships, and was a possible #1 pick in this years draft is No.1
2. D'Brickshaw Ferguson, Virginia, OT
Would've been a top 3 player in this draft and is the best OL prospect outside of Gallery in quite some time.
3. Rodrique Wright, Texas, DT
Top DT prospect, I had him going in the top 10 this year.
4. Mathias Kiwanuka, Boston College, DE
Would've likely been the top DE in this years draft and was a possible top 10 pick.
5. Reggie McNeal, Texas A&M, QB
Human hilight reel, you've been warned.

Honorable mentions:
Abdul Hodge, Iowa, ILB
Eric Winston, Miami, OT
Gabe Watson, Michigan, DT
Mercedes Lewis, TE, UCLA
Jason Allen, S, Tennessee
Jonathon Scott, OT, Texas
Marcus McNeill, OT, Auburn


Sophmores

1. Ahmad Brooks, LB, Virginia
The man is an absolute freak, and was eligible for the draft this year and chose not to enter. Would've been a top 10 pick and should be the best defensive player in college football next year.
2. Laurence Maroney, RB, Minnesota
Maroney is absolutely electric, and should be a Heisman candidate w/ Marion Barber III out of the picture.
3. Antonio Cromartie, CB, FSU
The best corner prospect in quite some time, he should be a special player in the league.
4. Reggie Bush, RB, USC
I am not as high on him as most, but he has the tools and is a jack of all trades.
5. Ernie Sims, LB, FSU
An absolutely dominant LB in college, he is going to be the anchor of some teams defence.

Honorable mentions:
Mario Williams, DE, North Carolina St.
Lamar Woodley, DE, Michigan
Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
Devon Hester, CB, Miami
Justin Blalock, OT, Texas
Santonio Holmes, WR, Ohio St.
Steve Breaston, WR, Michigan


Freshmen

1. Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma
The Lebron James of football, absolutely dominated as a frosh and was IMO the best player in the country.
2. Calvin Johnson, WR, Georgia Tech
Doesn't get much hype playing for GT, but he is pretty much unstoppable and will be a nightmare for ACC corners the next two years.
3. Chad Henne, QB, Michigan
Had a great frosh campaign, showing the poise of a senior and putting up big numbers, IMO the best QB prospect in college football.
4. Dwayne Jarrett, WR, USC
Had big games for the champs at USC and was a huge playmaker, he made everyone at USC forget about Mike Williams.
5. Ted Ginn Jr., WR/CB, Ohio St.
A great prospect at both positions, Ginn is lightning in a bottle and likely the most dangerous player in college football in terms of his ability to take it to the house on any play.

Honorable mentions:
Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
Mike Hart, RB, Michigan
Keith Rivers, LB, USC
Eric Ainge, QB, Tennessee
Marshawn Lynch, RB, California
Anthony Reddick, CB, Miami
Jake Long, OT, Michigan


Highschoolers

1. Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia
Massive tackle that should be the next great Virginia o-lineman.
2. Fred Rouse, WR, Florida St.
Elite WR prospect that has size and speed.
3. Derrick Williams, Athlete, Penn St.
A do-it-all kind of guy who will probably play WR, and he could possibly be the best player from this class.
4. Melvin Alaeze, DE, Maryland
Best defensive player in this class, a replacement for the amazing Shawne Merriman.
5. Martellus Bennet, TE, Texas A&M
A fantastic prospect, he and Reggie McNeal should be an extremely dangerous combo this year.

Honorable mentions:

Rey Maualuga, LB, USC
Jonathan Stewart, RB, Oregon
Mark Sanchez, QB, USC
Patrick Turner, WR, USC
Desean Jackson, WR, California
Justin King, CB, Penn St.
Callahan Bright, DT, Florida St.

Those top couple guys would've have made a big impact in the draft.

*EDIT* For some reason I thought the Packers needed Tackles? :-b

I would move McNeal down a LOT, Wright down a little, and Scott up a few spots. Good list, though.

The honorable mentions aren't ranked in order, and I like McNeal's potential so much, Vick with passing skills. He's going to light it up w/ Martellus Bennett this year.

You like McNeal's potential at what position? He's an amazing athlete, but I don't know if he's top-5 NFL draft caliber at QB.

QB, he's near the athlete Vick is, with better passing skills. I'm not saying he's top 5 NFL draft calibre, this is just next years Srs. and next years Jr. class is sick.

I might even put Ferguson in front of Leinart, the man is an amazing athlete at a position where there are none.

Next year's top players will most likely be better than this year's, the top 4 on this list would likely have been top 10 picks this year.

who is the young guy who won the Rose Bowl for Texas? He seemed pretty good, but i don't see a Texas QB on the list.
