2010 NFL Draft: Top 10 Wide Receivers

leave a comment »

We are at the point of the year that has the prospects are preparing for the combine and every “draft expert” has their “big board” and their list of players who they feel are the best at their respective positions. I am no different.

I’ll now shift focus to the wide receivers. I think this is a pretty decent group, but not a deep as last years class. Dez Bryant is by far and away the best wide receiver in this class. He is a complete receiver and  has the size NFL teams love. After him there are smaller receivers (Mardy Gilyard), smooth receivers (Damian Williams) bigger receivers (Arrelious Benn), posession receivers (Golden Tate) and a few converted quarterbacks (Joe Webb).

Here are my Top 10 wide receivers for the 2010 NFL Draft.

1. Dez Bryant- Oklahoma St.

2. Damian Williams- USC

3. Demaryius Thomas- Georgia Tech

4. Brandon LaFell- LSU

6. Mardy Gilyard- Cincinnati

6. Golden Tate- Notre Dame

7.  Arrelious Benn- Illinois

8. Taylor Price- Ohio

9. Jordan Shipley- Texas

10. Carlton Mitchell- South Florida

2010 NFL Draft: Top 10 Running Backs

with 2 comments

We are at the point of the year that has the prospects are preparing for the combine and every “draft expert” has their “big board” and their list of players who they feel are the best at their respective positions. I am no different.

Now it’s time to shift to the running backs. The 2010 running back class, to me, is really good at the top with a few players that could develop into very good backs in the middle rounds depending on where they end up.

CJ Spiller is lightning in a bottle. Jonathan Dwyer is a bigger back who fits a zone blocking scheme. Jahvid Best is a back that is a smaller version of Spiller while Joe McKinght is a back that may not have Spiller or Best’s speed, but can go the distance anytime he touches the ball. Then there is Dexter McCluster from Ole Miss. He is a back that can line up at running back, wide receiver or quarterback in a “Wild Cat” formation.

Here are my top 10 running backs that are in the 2010 draft.

1. CJ Spiller- Clemson 

2. Jonathan Dwyer- Georgia Tech

3. Jahvid Best- Cal

4.  Anthony Dixon- Mississippi St.

5. Joe McKnight- USC

6. Dexter McCluster- Ole Miss

7.  LeGarrette Blount- Oregon

8. Ryan Mathews- Fresno St.

9. Toby Gerhart- Stanford

10. Montario Hardesty- Tennessee

2010 NFL Draft: Top 10 Quarterbacks

with one comment

We are at the point of the year that has the prospects are preparing for the combine and every “draft expert” has their “big board” and their list of players who they feel are the best at their respective positions. I am no different.

I am starting with my top quarterbacks. I don’t feel there is a sure-fire number one quarterback worthy of a top 5 pick. Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford and Jimmy Clausen of Notre Dame are the consensus number 1-A and 1-B, but after them there is much to debate.

But there is many questions after those two. Where will tim Tebow land and how high? Does Colt McCoy have NFL arm strength? Is Jevan Snead a better pro player than college player? As you can see that is only 3 questions that are being asked and there are many more.

I won’t debate who is number 3 through 10. Instead here are my top 10 quarterbacks for the 2010 draft PRE-Combine. It may or may not change much after the combine, but here our my top 10 quarterback prospects for the 2010 draft.

1. Sam Bradford- Oklahoma

2. Jimmy Clausen- Notre Dame

3. Colt McCoy- Texas

4. Jevan Snead- Ole Miss

5. Tony Pike- Cincinnati

6. Tim Tebow- Florida

7. John Skelton- Fordham

8. Dan LeFevour- Central Michigan

9. Jarrett Brown- West Virginia

10.  Matt Nichols- Eastern Washington
