    Ryan Kerrigan/DE/Purdue: Kerrigan has been flying up draft boards as fast as any other senior in the nation. He leads the Boilermakers with 41 tackles and the Big Ten in tackles for loss (14) and sacks (5.5). Kerrigan's football skills compliment his impressive work ethic and high character. Scouts have said the sum total could push Kerrigan into the middle of round one.

    JJ Watt*/DL/Wisconsin: The Badgers impressive underclassman continues to play at a high level. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Watt has the size to stuff the run and athleticism to rush the passer. His upside is tremendous, and he'll get consideration from a number of 3-4 teams as well as those with conventional defenses.

    Rodney Hudson/OL/Florida State: Hudson continues to establish himself as the top zone-blocking prospect in the nation. His ability to remove linebackers or defensive backs blocking in motion has allowed the Seminoles running game to take off. Scouts are split as to whether Hudson will be better off at center or guard in the NFL, yet most feel he has starting potential.

    Joe Lefeged/S/Rutgers: The Scarlet Knights starting safety over the past three seasons is developing a complete game as a senior. Lefeged has always been a terrific run defender; he's second on the team with 41 tackles this year. His six pass defenses to date are a career high. The senior is also a terrific special teams player. He's blocked two kicks this season besides averaging just under 28 yards on 14 kick returns.
