    I am posting here 10 of the top players coming out of the draft......

    Compare these players chosen to NFL players already
    playing at least 1 year in the NFL.

    Who do these soon to be Pros based from their performance in college resemble current NFL stars and which of course means you expect to also have a similar type career?

    1) CALVIN JOHNSON? - I say he looks like a young Hines Ward
    2) PAUL POLUSZNY? - Still think our Tedi Bruschi comes to me first
    3) LARON LANDRY? - Ty Law,which of course is VERY hard to duplicate
    4) JOE THOMAS? - Chris Samuels of the Redskins
    5) ADRIAN PETERSON? - Larry Johnson of the Cheifs
    6) BRADY QUINN? - Matt Hasselbeck of the Seahawks
    7) GAINES ADAMS? - Julius Peppers of the Panthers
    8) CHRIS HOUSTON? - Dre Bly of the Broncos
    9) ROBERT MEACHAM? - Reggie Wayne of the Colts
    10) LEON HALL? - Nate Clements of the 49ers (big task to uphold)

    Calvin Johnson- Terrell Owens
    Patrick Willis- Takeo Spikes
    Laron Landry- Sean Taylor
    Joe Thomas- Chris Samuels sounds right
    Adrian Peterson- Ahman Green
    JaMarcus Russell- Daunte Culpepper
    Gaines Adams- Dwight Freeny
    Chris Houston- Ty Law

    Do you really think Calvin will be a Jackass and no real talent after his first few years like Terrell is now?

    Lets face it,Terrell is not even in the top 20 best WRs in the game now,Drops too many passes and has no ambition most times,I would not wish my worst enemy to end up like T.O.

    I like your Jamarcus pick but I don't see him on my list :D
    Willis to Spikes was a good comparison too,As a matter of fact he just might REPLACE Spikes on that same team.

    I'm sure he meant physically only.

    I agree with the Owens comparison, a friend of mine says he's built more like Al Toon.

    One thing's for sure . . . he 'ain't Hines Ward.

    I don't know,I don't think being a Hines Ward type receiver is so bad,I would not mind a Hines Ward type guy as a receiver on this team...Although I can't stand the man personally,But he is good.

    Sure he's good. But they aren't similar. Ward isn't that tall or fast, he just a tough SOB who's a good football player. Johnson is a totally different type of talent. It's like comparing Gaines Adams to Bruschi when Bruschi was an OLB . . . Buschi was a good player (and still is) but he's a completely different kind of player.
