2006 NFL Draft Prospects by Position

I compiled my list of the best prospects at each position going into the 2006 draft. Like my mock, I will revise this once more after the combine, and that’ll be it for me until its time to do the post draft grades. I also included little blurbs as to who I think are the surest bets at each position, as well as the guys with the most bust potential, and Super Sleepers – guys who are flying way under the radar whom will make an impact for whatever team is lucky enough to steal them late.
