Right now, the scouts and personnel people in the NFL say there is more talent available at the top of the list of junior players than can be found with the senior class.

There’s nothing unusual about that and like the seniors that will be available for the 2010 NFL Draft, most of the top talent is on the defensive side.

Tennessee safety Eric Berry and Oklahoma DT Gerald McCoy top the list right now. Florida DE Carlos Dunlap and ILB Rolando McClain from Alabama are also among the top five or six picks.

Back in August, the number one underclassmen name was Heisman Trophy winner, QB Sam Bradford of Oklahoma. But his shoulder injury and then his re-aggravating of the injury dropped him down the list, if only a few places. The NFL has seen Bradford’s abilities; the question around the league now is about his durability.

Another potential top 10 pick, WR Dez Bryant of Oklahoma State found himself suspended by the NCAA for his contact with former NFL CB Deion Sanders. Whether that affects his standing in the ‘10 Draft will depend on what he gets done for scouts starting in February.

Here’s the list of the 32 best underclassmen as compiled from a number of scouts and other sources:

Dez Bryant is one of the best WR prospects in years. We have a major void at the position and Dez projects to instantly upgrade the position. The two 2nd round picks assure us of netting a quality o-lineman and a quality defensive player.
