1. CB Prince Amukamara: Nebraska (6-0, 200)
He’s really improved his overall patience and technique as a press corner this year and has the type of footwork/balance to quickly close on the football. Can be effective in any type of coverage and has the makings of a high level starting corner at the next level.
Clayborn has the ability to beat blocks in both the run and pass game.
2. DE Adrian Clayborn: Iowa (6-3, 286)
Lacks the kind of first step to consistently threaten the edge, but he’s a guy who can win for you in both the run and pass game and has some of the most violent hands of any defensive lineman in the class.
3. DT Stephen Paea: Oregon State (6-2, 310)
An explosive, powerful interior lineman who can push the pocket inside and displays good suddenness on contact. Needs to do a better job finding the football once he gets up field, but should mature into a very solid starting interior lineman.
4. OT Derek Sherrod: Mississippi State (6-5, 305)
The best offensive tackle in the senior class. Needs to learn to keep his base down more off the edge. However, he possesses good range, is balanced and coordinated in space and is a much better run blocker than given credit for.
5. CB Curtis Brown: Texas (6-0, 180)
Possesses impressive balance and body control for a corner his size and has the fluidity to cleanly redirect and close on the football out of his breaks. Exhibits good ball skills down the field as well.
6. DE Pernell McPhee: Mississippi State (6-3, 278)
A unique athlete who seems to really be coming into his own this season. The game really seems to be slowing down for him, as he’s doing a much better job using his hands to slip blocks and is much more than a push/pull guy at this stage.
7. OT Anthony Castonzo: Boston College (6-7, 308)
A four-year starter at a school which has had success sending offensive linemen to the next level. I don’t think he’s a potential blue-chip prospect at the position, but he’s a guy you can win with on the blindside at the next level.
