Franchise signal caller with one of the strongest arms in football.

Prolific college pass catcher with all the tools except elite speed.
5. Eugene Monroe OT Virginia
Follows Ferguson and Albert as the Cavs next great LT prospect.
6. B.J. Raji DT Boston College
A massive, powerful player who could excel in either a 4-3 or 3-4.
7. Malcolm Jenkins CB Ohio St.
Prototypical size, average speed but will hit and support the run.

Terrific size along with great athleticism, quickness and strength.

Only started for one year but is more talented than Matt Leinart.

Timed speed's just average but an excellent all-around tight end.
14. Andre Smith OT Alabama
Very athletic and can be dominant but has some question marks.

Explosive pass rusher whose optimal fit may come as a 3-4 OLB.
17. Rey Maualuga ILB USC
Big, tough, nasty middle linebacker who can really lay the lumber.
18. Percy Harvin WR Florida
Undoubtedly a Top 10 talent but durability issues are a concern.

Super instinctive and plays both the run and the pass effectively.
25. Aaron Maybin DE Penn St.
Top pass rusher but vastly undersized and isn't ready physically.

Doesn't have the height you look for but is fast and a playmaker.
27. Larry English DE Northern Illinois
Extremely productive pass rusher who can project to DE or OLB.

Big hitter who can rush the quarterback and drop into coverage.
