QB- The best prospect in this draft is Christian Ponder. To be honest i hardly knew who Blaine Gabbert was until McShay started hyping him in the last week of the regular season of CF. Newton is too raw. Mallet is just a giant with an arm. Locker has continued to dissapoint.

RB- Not going to Mark Ingram route. I can't decide between Daniel Thomas of KSU and Delone Carter of Cuse. The only thing that concerns me about Thomas is footspeed. He runs a 4.6 forty. Although he is not a speed back he is big enough to be a power back. He also has great feet and burst.

WR- This is a tough one. I'm going to go with Julio Jones although AJ Green is right there. After Green there is Leornard Hankerson from the U all have 1st round potential.

TE- DJ Williams he is athletic enough to play WR big enough to play TE.

DE- Bowers done deal

DT- Fairley followed Dareus

OLB- Either Von Miller or Akeem Ayers. This is close enough to be a toss up. Miller played as a down DE at A&M but due to his size will have to switch to OLB in the pros. Ayers is a monster from UCLA that should be a real good player.

ILB- Greg Jones from MSU. 6-0 240 with 4.5-4.66 speed.

CB- Patrick Peterson but followed closely by Amukamara both are big and fast. Excellent in coverage Petersons return abilities give him the SLIGHT nod.

FS- Quiton Carter- 6'1 211 with 4.47 speed. Good in coverage

SS- Either DeAndre McDaniel from Clemson or Ahmad Black from Florida. Very close but i give the nod to McDaniel.

A late round sleeper to watch out for is RB Alex Green. I have been talking about this guy for awhile i wrote a blog on here way before he was getting ANY draft hype at all.

Another would be RB Dion Lewis out of Pitt. This guy reminds me of LeSean McCoy.

I'm wondering if Cam Newton will even go in the 1st round. And what no love for the highly touted Robert Quinn?

I feel like a team will take a shot on him sort of like Tebow to the Broncos.

Another OLB is Dontay Moch in the right system this guy could be great. He NEEDS to go to a 3-4 team.

Moch has been timed in 40 as low as 4.26

Tebow had talent.

Newton has more raw talent than Tebow.

You guys should do a Newton vs. Tebow Throwdown and see what the good members of FN think.

I think they're both about equal in talent.

Think so?? The jury is still out for me...

There is more upside in Newton than Tebow. Newton could be great i think Tebow will only be average.

What makes you think that?? There was as much hype around Tebow as there has been around
Newton. What's the difference for you?

There has been much more pro hype around Newton than there is Tebow.

The old Heisman Hype. Why don't we ask God who his favorite is? Maybe he will answer on Jerry Jones big screen at half time during the Super Bowl. Common God this is your chance on the big stage to prove you truly do exist.

I personally don't think Newton is worth more than a 2nd or 3rd round selection.

I think Solder will go first

Rule of thumb- don't make blind leaps, make sure you are not too high, that their is something of substance for you to leap onto, or that you don't leap into/onto something that is toxic and that you have something else to fall back on if where you leapt proves to be unstable.
