Notable offensive players in the NFL draft, grouped by projected NFL positions:

Quarterback
Mark Sanchez, 6-2, 227, junior, Southern California: Sharp, smart player with silky mechanics and excellent field vision.

Matt Stafford could be taken higher, because Sanchez has only one year as a starter.

Matt Stafford, 6-2, 225, Georgia: A likely pick at No. 1 due to his experience and proven ability to make tough throws. Great arm strength and field vision.

Nate Davis, 6-1, 226, junior, Ball State: Strong arm, nice touch on his passes. Will need to adapt to taking snaps under center and dodging rushers.

Running back
Chris "Beanie” Wells, 6-1, 235, junior, Ohio State: Big and fast, Wells is a headache waiting to happen for linebackers.

Knowshon Moreno, 5-11, 217, junior, Georgia: Not the fastest back of the bunch, but plays with fire and has plenty of agility.

Shonn Greene, 5-11, 227, junior, Iowa: Punishing runner who can hit the hole and bounce off tackles.

Wide receiver
Michael Crabtree, 6-2, 215, junior, Texas Tech: Has elite talent for an NFL wideout.
