Some interesting picks:
- CJ Spiller at RB over Mark Ingram. Nawrocki calls Spiller "electricity in a bottle, Spiller is a dynamite game-changer who appeared superhuman zigzagging through ACC defenses while battling through injuries all year." Mark Ingram, Jonathan Dwyer, Ryan Mathews, Toby Gerhart and Dexter McCluster were all honorable mention, along with a couple of super frosh prospects, Dion Lewis and Ryan Williams. Dion Lewis looks like he will end up being somewhere in-between Maurice Jones-Drew and Barry Sanders. Not bad.
- A couple of small school guys getting honorable mention at OT: Vladimir Ducasse (UMass) and Jared Veldheer (Hillsdale, Michigan). 2 guys with a lot of athleticism and upside.
- Mike Iupati, Mike Pouncey and Maurkice Pouncey as the interior linemen.
- Derrick Morgan and Jason Pierre-Paul at DE, with honorable mention to Greg Romeus, Robert Quinn, Brandon Graham, Jerry Hughes, Adrian Clayborn and Cameron Heyward. Pierre-Paul seems a bit of a reach based on his 2009 production, over Graham and Hughes. Several of these guys are potential 3-4 OLB candidates. Quinn will be the best of the bunch, but is not draft eligible.
- Quite a secondary: Eric Berry and Earl Thomas at safety, with Patrick Peterson and Joe Haden at CB. I'd take that group.
