    1. K.J. Black, Prairie View A&M
    Black got off to a slow start because of a knee injury. He still managed to throw for 2,154 yards with 13 touchdowns and five interceptions. In 2009, he guided the Panthers to the SWAC championship. At 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds, he's the prototype QB.
    Strengths: He can throw the deep pass and the short route. He has the ability to avoid the heavy rush. He can stand up in the pocket and make the throws. He can roll out, too.
    Weaknesses: The injury may have hurt his stock a little bit. Although he came on toward the end of the season, he still needs to get his timing back. He has a tendency to force the ball into coverage. He could use a good pro day.

    5. David Mims, Virginia Union
    Mims can definitely clear the way. Whenever Virginia Union needed a first down, they ran behind him. The 6-7, 330-pounder helped the Panthers lead the CIAA in rushing.
    Strengths: He takes up a lot of space on the offensive line. He's a great run blocker.
    Weaknesses: He needs work on his lateral movement. He has to improve his pass blocking.

    6. Justin Wells, Saint Augustine's College
    Wells helped Walter Sanders become the CIAA's leading rusher this season. The 6-5, 290-pounder had a path for Sanders to run through all season long.
    Strengths: He's a great run blocker. The Falcons' offensive guard can really pull.
    Weaknesses: He has to polish his pass blocking skills. He has to do a better job of getting in position against the pass.
