*Warning* This is written by Pete Pricko.


1. Matt Leinart, QB, Southern California: He would have been the first player picked in this year's draft. Barring an injury, he's the top player next year.

2. D'Brickashaw Ferguson, T, Virginia: He's a huge tackle with great athletic ability. If he had come out this year, he would have been a top 10 pick.

3. DeAngelo Williams, RB, Memphis: An explosive runner with good size and the ability to make people miss. Williams is in the Ronnie Brown-Carnell Williams class.

4. Mathias Kiwanuka, DE, Boston College: We know teams are desperate for pass rushers, which will make this speed rusher a potential top five pick.

5. Rodrique Wright, DT, Texas: A power player inside who has great quickness. Thought about coming out this year, but an ankle injury slowed him 2004. Will be a force this season.

6. Jonathan Scott, T, Texas: At 6-7, 315, he has great athletic ability for a man his size. A left tackle with good feet is invaluable. He's a four-year starter at Texas.

7. Vince Young, QB, Texas (Jr.): This may seem high for him, but he came on strong late last season and has wonderful tools. Won the Rose Bowl MVP with a sensational performance. At 6-5, 230, he has a strong arm and wonderful feet.

8. Eric Winston, T, Miami: He tore ligaments in his knee last season; otherwise he wouldn't be back. Winston is a former tight end who excels in pass protection.

9. Reggie Bush, RB, Southern California (Jr.): Some will say he's too small (6-0, 200) to be an NFL running back. They will be wrong. This kid will get 25 touches a game in the NFL and make defenses tremble every time.

10. Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa: This former high school quarterback has developed into one of the best defensive players in the country. At 6-4, 239 pounds, he is relentless in his pursuit of the ball.

11. Jimmy Williams, CB, Virginia Tech: At 6-3, 219, he is big corner with good speed. Played safety early in his career at Tech, but make no mistake about it. This is a corner.

12. Marcus McNeil, T, Auburn: A massive left tackle at 6-9, 335 pounds, McNeil has all the tools to be a Pro Bowl player.

13. Ernie Sims, LB, Florida State (Jr.): At 6-0, 220 pounds, he doesn't have the size teams love, but he is a wrecking ball at outside linebacker. This kid is special.

14. Mario Williams, DE, North Carolina State (Jr.): At 6-7, 285 pounds, he has outstanding speed off the edge. Has been a starter since he stepped on campus as a freshman. He could be higher on this list with a great junior season.

15. Charlie Whitehurst, QB, Clemson: The son of former NFL quarterback David Whitehurst, Charlie has a big arm and can make all the throws.

16. Gabe Watson, DT, Michigan: At 6-4, 333 pounds, he has the size teams crave from their inside people. But he's also athletic for a man that size.

17. Mercedes Lewis, TE, UCLA: He's the next great receiving tight end to enter the draft. Lewis will become an 80-catch player for whoever takes him.

18. Darnell Bing, S, Southern California: A rangy safety who brings a big lick when he attacks a runner or receiver. Another Ronnie Lott, another former Trojan?

19. Omar Jacobs, QB, Bowling Green (Jr.): Another quarterback with good size (6-4) and the athletic ability to make people respect his feet. Jacobs really came on strong last season and should move his way into the first round next April.

20. Leon Washington, RB, Florida State: He has outstanding big-play ability and great speed. He's smallish at 5-9, 202, but his explosiveness makes up for it.

21. A.J. Hawk, LB, Ohio State: He's one of those players who seems to be everywhere when you watch him play. At 6-2, 238 pounds, he has the size and speed teams like.

22. Antonio Cromartie, CB, Florida State (Jr.): At 6-3, 200, he's another bigger corner who has all the skills to be a shutdown player on the next level.

23. Ahmad Brooks, LB, Virginia (Jr.): He's a tackling machine for the Cavaliers, but he does have some off-field issues that worry scouts.

24. Jason Avant, WR, Michigan: The next in a long line of Michigan receivers headed to the NFL. He isn't in the same class as Braylon Edwards, but he's close.

25. Martin Nance, WR, Miami of Ohio: He's 6-5, 210 pounds but can run 4.4 in the 40. That adds up to a heck of a player.

26. Mike Degory, C, Florida: He's the best center in the country, a player adept at blocking for the run and the pass.

27. Derek Hagan, WR, Arizona State: At 6-2, he has good size and speed to become a big-play threat. May miss Andrew Walter some this season.

28. Davin Joseph, G-T, Oklahoma: Joseph has been a powerful guard who excels blocking for the run. The Sooners are moving him to left tackle this season, which will help his stock rise.

29. Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon (Jr.): At 6-5, 345, he has the powerful build to be a run-stuffer on the next level. He also has some quickness to collapse the pocket.

30. Abdul Hodge, LB, Iowa: A South Florida product who has developed into a tackling machine in the Big Ten. At 6-2, 232, he has outstanding speed to get to the football.

31. Laurence Maroney, RB, Minnesota: Was the Gophers MVP last season even though he shared time with Marion Barber.

32. Michael Huff, FS, Texas: A rangy safety who has started for three years. Huff is a big hitter, but he's good in coverage.

Others to watch: Dallas Sartz, LB/S, Southern California; Kamerian Wimbley, DE, Florida State; Orien Harris, DT, Miami; Greg Eslinger, C, Minnesota; Joseph Addai, RB, LSU; Eric Henderson, DE, Georgia Tech; Pierre Woods, LB, Michigan; Jason Allen, CB, Tennessee; Andrew Whitworth, T, LSU; Max Jean-Gilles, G-T, Georgia; Nate Salley, S, Ohio State; Jarrod Page, S, UCLA.

Too bad Greenway will never be available at #32....

Looks like Huff falls to us. The safety haters are going to go nuts. ;)

Yeah, but Abdul Hodge might.

6. Jonathan Scott, T, Texas: At 6-7, 315, he has great athletic ability for a man his size. A left tackle with good feet is invaluable. He's a four-year starter at Texas.

Willie Roaf's replacement? :hmmm:

Vince Young at #7 ?!?!? Prisco is out of his mind. Unless Young suddenly learns to throw a downfield pass.. I doubt he will even go early in the draft. Young is either very poorly coached.. or uncoachable.

Just another example of Prisco seeing one game and a few highlights and then pulling more crap out of his arse.
