Javon Ringer - RB, MSU
Nate Davis - QB, Ball State

Ringer is a beast and can carry a team.

Davis maybe one of he most polished QBs in college and could be the most NFL ready. The guy is real good.

CJ Spiller and James Davis at RB for Clemson also.

There are a couple more I will post later ;-D

I have added the players you suggested to the list, but for the record, I don't necessarily agree that RB Javon Ringer or QB Nate Davis are *elite* prospects. On a website / message board full of 2009 mock drafts, those two players don't even appear in their first four rounds of many of the mocks.

Nate Davis is my QB in a public fantasy league on CBS.Sports.com, and he is definitely a stud in college! But I don't know if his skills will translate to the next level.

I think his skills translate more than a lot of the guys that are being highly touted. He doesn't have the cannon arm, but he reads defenses better than most, and makes great decisions. He reminds me a lot of Big Ben. A guy that makes all the right decisions at the right times and never makes the bad throw that will cost your team the game.

That sold me there. ;-D

Although listed at 6'2" and 217 lbs, he's not quite as "big." :-)

:-b :-b Yea, minus the Big Part :-b

He is good height though. Another solid plus for him is that the Ball State offensive Cooridnator is awesome. He was the QB coach for Henson and Brady and has also been in the NFL. He said that Davis is the best QB he has ever coached. Pretty impressive from a guy with that type of credentials.

Since you don't have too many listed under secondary, I'll throw out Victor "Macho" Harris, CB, VT. Would have been drafted last year, but decided to stay for his senior season. Also safety Myron Rolle, Florida State.
