    It's what I did in compiling my "Hot 100" list of prospects, all of whom will be represented at the combine this week in Indianapolis. I took out all the non-football things that go into a complete analysis of a player and listed them strictly on talent and ability. It's not a mock draft, but this should give you an idea of how they are rated by most NFL teams as players.

    Note:Tiers are listed alphabetically; * denotes early entrant.

    Tier 1
    Da'Quan Bowers*, DE, Clemson, 6-4, 276
    Can get after the quarterback. Had 15.5 sacks for the Tigers in 2010. Has very good speed for position.
    Marcell Dareus*, DT, Alabama
    Can play in both 3-4 and 4-3 defensive schemes. Had 4.5 sacks for Crimson Tide in 2010. Never takes a play off.
    Nick Fairley*, DT, Auburn, 6-5, 300
    Only played two years at Auburn after spending first two years at junior college. Had 11.5 sacks for Tigers in 2010.

    Blaine Gabbert*, QB, Missouri, 6-4, 235
    Two-year starter. Mobility a strength. Completed 63.4 percent of his passes in 2010. Works best out of the shotgun.
    A.J. Green*, WR, Georgia, 6-3, 212
    Was suspended four games in 2010 by NCAA for sale of a bowl jersey. Still finished with 57 catches and nine TDs.
    Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M, 6-2, 240
    Led the nation in sacks as a junior and even had 10.5 last year despite an early-season injury.
    Cam Newton*, QB, Auburn, 6-5, 245
    Only a one-year college player, but he passed for 30 TDs and ran for 20, with a 66.1 completion percentage.
    Patrick Peterson*, DB, LSU, 6-0, 215
    Very good return man. Able to cover the pass and play strong against the run
