I disagree FB, everyone was talking about how unbelievably loaded last years class was and how this years could never measure up. Believe me, if 80% of top draft eligible players come out, the teams with high 2nd round picks will get two top 20 quality players.

You need to add Ryan Perriloux to that Highschooler list. He has Vick type speed with a pretty good arm. He should win the Starting QB job at LSU in a year or two. I live about 30 miles from where he played and I watched him a few times. He is utterly amazing. He averaged like 5 or 6 total TDs a game.

Perrilloux is sick, but I see him as more of a great college player than NFL player. Also, he supposedly has some serious attitude problems and that won't fly in the league.

CC, have you heard of Connor Barwin? he's a TE/LB going into Cincinatti (i think) next year.

Nope, I've never heard of him. I checked Rivals and I couldn't find anything on him either, so he must be a Jr. right now in HS.

Gotta love the Cromartie and Sims picks as an FSU fan. ;-D I'm biased, but I think Sims and Brooks are really close. Sims has that nasty streak to him...and is one of the fastest guys on our team...as a linebacker. Scary.

Callahan Bright might go to a prep school, by the way, because apparently he had a long way to go with academics heading into this year. He's made strides, but he was pretty far off. We'll see. Rouse has some work to do, too, but the coaches at Lincoln High are apparently pretty good with that sort of stuff.

To continue with the homerism, Xavier Lee of Florida State is a very impressive player. He has superb arm strength, although he's taking some time to develop since he played in a shotgun offense in high school. He's a dual threat quarterback with tantalizing athletic ability.
Drew Weatherford, also of FSU, is impressive, too. If the QB job is decided by work ethic, he'd take it without a doubt.

To add to your list, Kenneth Phillips of Miami is incredible. The dude can flat out hit...great size/speed...and is a superb, mature leader on the field. Hate to see him go to the dark side, but we never had much of a shot on him. I'll settle for just stealing Antone. :-D

I think Melvin Alaeze might outgrow DE in a 4-3 defensive set. Since Maryland runs a 3-4, he should fit in fine as a 3-4 DE. He's already pushing 280, so with some additional weight (doesn't need all that much), he could legitimately move inside. He's not exactly the fast rush end featured in college. His strength and size is what makes him who he is...he pushes guys around from the end.

Maualuga might outgrow LB as well.

And upon further review, just as sappy, too."

The best corner prospect in quite some time, he should be a special player in the league.



I love this choice right here... Antonio went to the same high school (and college) that I did... I have watched him play MANY times.... In high school he played both ways, and dominated on both sides of the ball... I think we saw a taste of what he can do in the FSU/Miami game to open last season... He damn near won that thing for us.... There is no doubt in my mind he'll eventually be a first round pick...

I see his father every day because he's the UPS man who delivers to my office... You couldn't hope to meet nicer people....


On a side note, I love your Ernie Sims pick, as well... That kid's going to be something special.... And it doesn't hurt that he's another local.... ;-D


Yea, I had a tough time deciding between Sims and Mario Williams for that final spot, both are elite prospects but I've had the pleasure of watching Sims about 6 times and I have only seen Williams twice.


I think Cromartie's best feature is his unparalelled ability to make officials blow the whistle dead when he fumbles kickoff returns or come up with some phantom penalty when they don't :P.
