    Ranking the Pac-10's top prospects | National Football Post

    Potential Patriots

    DL Cameron Jordan: California
    Besides Auburn DT Nick Fairley, Jordan has been the nation’s most dominant defensive lineman on a week-to-week basis. Looks like a potential blue-chip defender at the next level.

    LB Akeem Ayers: UCLA
    A physically imposing athlete who runs well for his size, showcases good fluidity when asked to redirect and has the skill set to play as either a 3-4 rush guy or as a strong side backer in a 4-3.

    DB Rahim Moore: UCLA
    A fluid, ball-hawking safety who showcases the ability to cover a lot of ground in the deep half and consistently make a play on the throw.

    Stephen Paea DT from Oregan.

    Might not be a Patriots type player, but he has potential to be very good in the NFL.

    ACC Prospects
    Ranking the ACC?s Top Prospects | National Football Post

    DL Da’Quan Bowers: Clemson
    Cut some weight off his frame from last season and has really taken his game to another level in 2010. Has the makings of maturing into one of the top pass rushers to come out of this year’s class.


    ICON
    Despite not playing in 2010, Quinn has the talent to be a blue-chip caliber prospect.
    DL Robert Quinn: North Carolina
    Despite missing the 2010 season due to accepting improper benefits, Quinn’s play in 2009 truly speaks for itself. He was in my view the nation’s best pure pass rusher and if he can live and learn from his mistakes the sky is the limit for the kid.


    Ranking the Big Ten?s Top Prospects | National Football Post

    DL J.J. Watt: Wisconsin
    Plays with surprising bend and leverage for a guy his size. Knows how to set the edge in the run game and uses his strong hands and power well to disengage vs. the pass. Looks like an ideal 3-4 DE at the next level who should be able to quickly give you quality play early in his NFL career.

    DL Ryan Kerrigan: Purdue
    He doesn’t play the run game as well as many give him credit for and is a bit limited as an athlete. However, the guy does know how to rush the passer and never stays blocked for long off the edge.


    ICON
    Clayborn is a three down lineman at the next level.
    DL Adrian Clayborn: Iowa
    Didn’t quite have the type of year many envisioned, but he’s still a strong, physical kid who can set the edge and give you quality reps as a pass rusher. A three-down defender who looks ideally suited to play on the left side.

    DL Cameron Heyward: Ohio State
    Isn’t a real natural pass rusher, but has a strong lower half and a powerful set of hands. Might be better suited to play as a five-technique only at the next level, but possesses the versatility to fit into either a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme.

    SEC List

    Ranking the SEC?s Top Prospects | National Football Post

    OL DeMarcus Love: Arkansas
    Showcases impressive range and athletic ability when asked to reach the corner, but needs to continue to tighten up his footwork in space. Has some really impressive tape playing as a guard in 2008 and in my view I think he’s better suited to play inside at the next level.


    OL Mike Pouncey: Florida
    He’s not as compact/balanced with his footwork as his brother was last season, but he’s still a good enough athlete with good enough strength to fight his way into a team’s starting lineup as a guard.

    DL Marcell Dareus: Alabama
    Exhibits a strong lower half, knows how to sit into his stance, extend his arms and anchor. Is an ideal five-technique type defender in a 3-4 front.

    DL Nick Fairley: Auburn
    An absolutely dominant interior defensive lineman who has the power to consistently overwhelm at the point and fight his way through blocks, as well as the initial burst to threaten gaps and accelerate past blockers inside. One of the few blue-chip prospects in this year’s draft

    DL Pernell McPhee: Mississippi State
    A big, long-armed kid who didn’t have a great statistical year, but he knows how to play the run game and really showed development from last season rushing the passer. Created a lot of QB pressures this year and even stood up at times when asked to get after the passer. Could get some hard looks as a 3-4 rush backer on a defense that likes bigger OLB prospects.

    LB Justin Houston: Georgia
    One of the best pure pass rushers in the nation. Demonstrates the first step to consistently threaten the edge and flattens out extremely tightly around the corner. Looks like a potential impact caliber 3-4 rush guy to me.

    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.

    Finally somebody else uses the Vollmer comparision for Solder. The difference: Vollmer was a late 2nd round pick, Solder is seen as the top tackle and a high first round pick by some.

    I like Crick a lot, because Nebraska is already playing a two gap defense, I think his transition into our defense would track much like Deaderick's.

    However I really hope he stays in school another year and gets stronger and learns to anchor against double teams better.

    Watch out for Mason Foster in the Holiday Bowl thursday. Solid linebacker I would love to have.

    Onto the Big East..

    Ranking the Big East?s Top Prospects | National Football Post

    OL Jason Pinkston: Pittsburgh
    A thickly built left tackle who can coil up into his stance, fire off the football and really generate a pop into contact. Doesn’t look athletic enough to play on the outside in the NFL, but projects as one of the better guard prospects in my view.


    OL Mike Ryan: Connecticut
    A strong, thickly built offensive tackle who might be better suited to kick inside to guard, but will be one of the better junior offensive line prospects for the 2012 draft.

    OL Alex Hoffman: Cincinnati
    Possesses good length and overall versatility and displays good athleticism in both the run and pass game. Has some upside, but needs to get more comfortable at one spot after playing both guard and right tackle during his time as a Bearcat. Therefore, developing at a position this summer will be key, but the skill set is there.
