Top 5 of the last decade
Andrew Luck, Stanford – #1 pick
Robert Griffin III, Baylor – #2 pick
I liked him in December, but had a feeling he would be overvalued come April
Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M – Top 50 prospect

One or two of these guys will be a decent gamble on Day 3, the rest will be very over drafted
Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma State – Top 100 prospect (to a team that doesn’t need a starting quarterback but needs competition for a veteran)
Brock Osweiler, Arizona State – fourth-round prospect (to a team that won’t need a quarterback for at least two years
Russell Wilson, Wisconsin – fourth-round prospect
Kirk Cousins, Michigan State – fifth-round prospect
Nick Foles, Arizona – fifth-round prospect

Kellen Moore, Boise State – Late flier
BJ Coleman, UT Chattanooga – Late flier
Chandler Harnish, Northern Illinois – Late flier
Running Back
Best Prospect since Adrian Peterson
Trent Richardson, Alabama – Top 6 prospect
Richardson without the fifth gear
Doug Martin, Boise – Top 20 prospect
Everything Reggie Bush was as a prospect without the hype
Lamar Miller, Miami (FL) – Top 20 prospect
This class’ Darren Sproles
LaMichael James, Oregon – Top 50 prospect
Large ceiling, but on-field product is concerning
David Wilson, Virginia Tech – Top 100 prospect

Committee backs
Chris Polk, Washington – Top 100 prospect (best fit on a team with an incumbent starting but questions for a third down/passing back)
Isaiah Pead, Cincinnati – Top 100 prospect
Ronnie Hillman, San Diego St – fourth-round prospect
Bernard Pierce, Temple – fourth-round prospect (passing game is very under developed for both of these guys)
Robert Turbin, Utah State – fourth-ound prospect
Tauren Poole, Tennessee – Late flier
