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. Nimble and agile around the ball and the sidelines. Makes big plays. →Jeremy Maclin, 6-0, 198, junior, Missouri: Athletic playmaker who needs polish on his route-running. →Kenny Britt, 6-3, 218, junior, Rutgers: Size and agility are excellent, but he probably needs to get stronger to handle No. 1 receiver duties.
Tight end→Brandon Pettigrew, 6-5, 263, Oklahoma State: Bulky mauler with sure hands to catch short passes. →Jared Cook, 6-5, 246, junior, South Carolina: Fast receiver who shouldn’t be expected to contribute much as a blocker. →Travis Beckum, 6-3, 243, Wisconsin: Great hands and loping stride will make him an unsavory matchup, but injury history and lack of size will hurt his stock.
Offensive line→Jason Smith, 6-5, 309, Baylor: This converted tight end is nimble and athletic, but still adding strength. →Eugene Monroe, 6-5, 309, Virginia: Aggressive LT prospect with nice footwork in pass protection and a zest for downfield blocking. →Duke Robinson, 6-5, 329, Oklahoma: Powerful behemoth who’s at his best driving downfield to smother tacklers.
