Pre-Combine Rankings: Skill Positions

Quarterbacks
1 Mark Sanchez*, USC: Looked like an All-Pro in the Rose Bowl, I think he has the most potential of any QB in this class.
2 Matthew Stafford*, Georgia: I'm not near as big a fan as most of him; great physical tools but makes too many poor decisions.

3 Josh Freeman*, Kansas St: Huge with a great arm, think Daunte Culpepper coming out of UCF.

4 Rhett Bomar, Sam Houston St: Athletic, has all the tools to be a starter, needs to put them together consistently.

5 Nate Davis*, Ball St: Very productive against lesser competition, had a rough end to the season.

6 Hunter Cantwell, Louisville: Great size and arm strength; not real mobile or productive.

7 Todd Boeckman, Ohio St: 1st Team All Big Ten as a Junior; got beat out by the #1 recruit in the nation as a senior.

8 Tom Brandstater, Fresno St: Has prototypical size/arm, doesn't always show it.

9 Cullen Harper, Clemson: Played like a 1st rounder as a Junior, like a UFA as a Senior.

10 Willie Tuitama, Arizona: Had a great career at Arizona, pretty big arm but is inconsistent with it.


Best of the Rest (Loosely Ranked)
Chase Daniel, Missouri
Jason Boltus, Hartwick (DIII)
Chris Pizzotti, Harvard (FCS)
Mike Reilly, Central Washington
Stephen McGee, Texas A&M
David Johnson, Tulsa
Graham Harrell, Texas Tech
Brian Hoyer, Michigan St
Mike Teel, Rutgers
John Parker Wilson, Alabama
Rudy Carpenter, Arizona St
Drew Willy, Buffalo
Bobby Reid, Texas Southern (FCS)
Brian Johnson, Utah
Joe Ganz, Nebraska
Nathan Brown, Central Arkansas
Chase Clement, Rice
Chase Holbrook, New Mexico St

Running Backs
1 Knowshon Moreno*, Georgia: Complete back, average size but great vision and quickness.

2 Shonn Greene*, Iowa: Great vision and feet for a big back, very productive. One year wonder?

3 Chris Wells*, Ohio St: Has had injury problems, but when healthy is the most talented back in this class. Does he have the drive to be great?

4 LeSean McCoy*, Pittsburgh: Dynamic playmaker but may not be a full time starter in the NFL.

5 Donald Brown*, Connecticut: Productive, gets the most out of his ability but doesn't have the same kind of potential that others above him do.

6 Andre Brown, N.C. State: Excellent Senior Bowl showing boosted him to the top of a weak senior RB class; good size/athleticism, not real productive in college.

7 Rashad Jennings, Liberty: Big back that runs like a smaller one, good speed and can break some tackles.
8 Tyrell Sutton, Northwestern: Should be an excellent 3rd down RB in the NFL, runs with deceptive power and is an excellent receiver out of the backfield but lacks size.
9 James Davis, Clemson: Shared time with C.J. Spiller his entire career; has talent but hasn't put it all together yet.
10 Bernard Scott, Abilene Christian: Great burst and acceleration in the open field, can run through arm tackles but needs to get stronger and put on some weight.

Fullbacks

2 Quinn Johnson, LSU: Huge, punishing runner but isn't very quick.

3 Brannan Southerland, Georgia: Hard nosed traditional FB.

4 Conredge Collins, Pittsburgh: Versatile; excellent receiver out of the back field but lacks size.

5 David Johnson, Arkansas St: Played TE in college; could be a high riser after the combine.

6 Eric Kettani, Navy (Service Commitments): It's a shame he can't attend the combine, is a very good player.

7 Frank Summers, UNLV: Can also play RB, very stout and runs with power.
8
Travis McCall, Alabama: Looks like an H-Back type; good receiver with solid size.
9
Cedric Hill, USF: Played mostly TE at USF, very good athlete.
10
Bill Rentmeester, Wisconsin: Great special teams player, big and tough.

Best of the Rest (Loosely Ranked)
Jason Cook, Ole Miss
Fui Vakapuna, BYU
Asaph Schwapp*, Notre Dame

Chris Pressley, Wisconsin
Eddie Williams, Idaho
Will Ta'ufo'ou, California
Mark Hafner, Houston
Zeek Zacharie, Louisiana-Monroe
Jorvorskie Lane, Texas A&M
Rich Belton, Wake Forest
Marcus Mailei, Weber St (FCS)

Tight Ends
1 Brandon Pettigrew, Oklahoma St: Great blocking TE with good size and athleticism; complete player.

2 James Casey*, Rice: Extremely productive; good athlete, receiver, and runner, should be a very good H-Back.

3 Shawn Nelson, Southern Miss: Had a great week of practice at the Senior Bowl, athletic but needs to put on some weight.

4 Jared Cook*, South Carolina: He could jump to #2 after the combine, should run a very good 40. Good receiver but lacks blocking skills.

5 Travis Beckum, Wisconsin: Injured his whole senior season, a playmaker in the passing game when healthy.

6 Cornelius Ingram, Florida: Athletic, good receiver, injured for most of his senior year.

7 Chase Coffman, Missouri: Played in a spread offense, lacks separation speed but is athletic with good hands.
8 Kory Sperry, Colorado St: He looks the part, fluid in the open field and can hold his own as a blocker.
9 Bear Pascoe, Fresno St: Not very athletic but has soft hands and can block well.
10 Cameron Morrah*, California: Good athlete, makes plays in the passing game, should move up as draft day nears.

Best of the Rest (Loosely Ranked)
Davon Drew, ECU
Brian Mandeville, Northeastern (FCS)
Anthony Hill, N.C. State
Ryan Purvis, Boston College
John Phillips, Virginia
Marquez Branson, Central Arkansas (FCS)
Jared Bronson, Central Washington (DII)
Darius Hill, Ball State
Dan Gronkowski, Maryland
Zach Miller, Nebraska-Omaha (DII)
Rob Myers, Utah St
Branden Ledbetter, Western Michigan
Richard Quinn*, North Carolina

Wide Receivers
1 Michael Crabtree*, Texas Tech: He's no Larry Fitzgerald but is pretty similar. Won't run a great 40 but is big, physical and has very strong hands.

2 Jeremy Maclin*, Missouri: Awesome speed, makes plays on offense & special teams.

3 Darrius Heyward-Bey*, Maryland: Track speed and good size, could be a great deep threat.

4 Percy Harvin*, Florida: Playmaker, reminds me of Ted Ginn, not real polished as a WR but could contribute right away in the return game.

5 Hakeem Nicks*, North Carolina: Doesn't have great speed but plays physical and has very good size. Amazing hands, makes some acrobatic catches.

6 Juaquin Iglesias, Oklahoma: Very productive #1 WR in college, will probably be a solid #2 WR on the next level.

7 Kenny Britt*, Rutgers: Not real quick but is big with solid speed and overall athleticism.
8 Brian Robiskie, Ohio St: He isn't a top athlete but is polished and NFL ready in terms of routes and hands.
9 Patrick Turner, USC: Never lived up to his potential in college; very quick routes for a big guy with soft hands. Top end speed is average at best.
10 Derrick Williams, Penn St: He'll get drafted higher than this but doesn't look like much more than a solid slot WR and kick returner to me.

Best of the Rest (Loosely Ranked)
Brandon Gibson, Washington St
Jarrett Dillard, Rice
Deon Butler, Penn St
Louis Murphy, Florida
Ramses Barden, Cal-Poly (FCS)
