Big 12 is next
Ranking the Big 12?s Top Prospects | National Football Post
WR Justin Blackmon: Oklahoma State
A strong, well-put-together kid who plucks the ball off his frame and is an absolute bear to bring down after the catch. Lacks elite straight-line speed, but accelerates very well down the field vertically and exhibits the body control to consistently go up and make a play on the football.
OL Nate Solder: Colorado
Has improved as the year went on. Is still raw in some areas of his game, but is a good athlete who can bend and generate leverage for himself in the run game. Reminds me some of Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer.
OL Danny Watkins: Baylor
Was as good as any left tackle I saw on tape during the year at the college level. However, is a bit physically limited and will need to kick inside to guard in the NFL, but he has the ability to come in and give an NFL team good starting reps from day one.
OL Tim Barnes: Missouri
I have said it all year that Barnes is one of the most underrated prospects in the country. He’s a tall, fluid interior lineman with good feet and balance in space who can also bend and play with leverage in the run game.
OL Levy Ad****: Oklahoma State
A junior offensive tackle who will be one of the top senior linemen entering the 2011 season, as he really came into his own as a junior.
OL Kelechi Osemele: Iowa State
An interesting offensive line prospect. Plays left tackle for the Cyclones and displays some natural body control in the pass game and power vs. the run. Looks better suited to play inside and still gets a bit overextended at times, but has enough upside to really intrigue going into next season.
DL Jared Crick: Nebraska
Isn’t the blue-chip caliber prospect many are making him out to be. But the guy has a great motor, can find the football and uses his length well to fight off blocks in both the run and pass game. Needs to do a better job keeping his pad level down, but has some scheme versatility and exhibits the type of mental makeup coaches love in a D-lineman.
LB Von Miller: Texas A&M
He’s explosive off the edge, fluid when asked to change directions and knows how to get after the quarterback. One of the best pure pass rushers in this year’s draft.
DB Aaron Williams: Texas
Another tall, gifted athlete who can tackle in the run game, turn with NFL-caliber receivers vertically and has the fluidity to cleanly open up his hips when changing directions. Still needs to add some more polish to his game as he will get upright too quickly, but the skill set is there.
