1. DT Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska - By far, the best player in this draft class. Great speed matched with astonishing upper body strength and stellar technique.
3. DT Gerald McCoy, Oklahoma - Perhaps the most dynamic disruptor on the board. Killer first step means that offensive linemen had best be on their game.
4. QB Sam Bradford, Oklahoma - Durability concerns, and the possibility that he'll face a learning curve at the next level, cannot mask Bradford's peerless deep accuracy.
5. OT Trent Williams, Oklahoma - A real mover. Impressed with his ability to move to left tackle as for linemates left the team after the 2008 season. Great potential here.
6. OT Russell Okung, Oklahoma State - A very polished pass-blocker, Okung isn't quite as adept with the bull-rush and at the second level. Still, he's the ready-made tackle option.
8. CB Joe Haden, Florida - The best cover cornerback this year, with surprising aggressiveness in tackling. Haden has the range in space to work a zone perfectly.
9. S Earl Thomas, Texas - You'll see more corner-safety hybrids like Thomas as the NFL becomes more of a passing league. Thomas' tackling is the only big debit.
10. DE Derrick Morgan, Georgia Tech - An undervalued player by many because he does so many things well and people are more impressed by pure pass rushers.
11. ILB Rolando McClain, Alabama - The optimal power 3-4 ILB. You'd like to see better coverage ability, but he goes downhill like crazy and he's a natural leader.
12. DT Dan Williams, Tennessee - Stronger at the point than Gerald McCoy, Williams will get a lot of looks from 3-4 defenses who need a conversion tackle.
13. CB Kyle Wilson, Boise State - From a man coverage perspective, Wilson is the best on the list. Ability to trail speed receivers has people comparing him to Darrelle Revis(notes). Could see a huge jump on draft day.
14. WR Dez Bryant, Oklahoma State - Dominant and tough receiver in mid-zones; he'll jump for anything and is absolutely fearless in traffic. Speed and work ethic are concerns.
16. OLB Sergio Kindle, Texas - Aggressive, nasty 3-4 pass-rushing linebacker - could be even better if he put on about 10 pounds and spent more time with his hand down.
