Significant talent still at QB, WR, DT

Every position still has a few players to keep an eye on, but a quick look at the best players available shows that the talent at quarterback, wide receiver and defensive tackle is especially intriguing.

The quarterback group lacks a clear-cut front runner. Some teams have Dan LeFevour as the best available. Others have Tony Pike, Levi Brown or Jonathan Crompton. Expect a mini-run on the position in the late 4th and 5th round.

I'm a big Carlton Mitchell fan amomg the receiver group. He's very raw, but has considerable tools worthy of development. Former UAB quarterback Joe Webb is a similarly gifted, long-limbed athlete. Michigan State's Blair White surprised scouts with his straight-line speed and agility in workouts, though this athleticism didn't always show itself on film. What does impress about White on tape, however, is his reliable route-running and sticky hands. He could prove quite the steal as the draft goes on.

The talent at defensive tackle is thinned out with the selection of Al Woods by New Orleans, but North Carolina's Cam Thomas, Virginia's Cam Thomas, Alabama's Brandon Deaderick and especially Syracuse's Arthur Jones are players who could come off the board soon.

No Cam Thomas that I can find on the UVA team last year...Nate Collins perhaps?

Wow! Two guys named Cam Thomas from different colleges and playing the same position, DE. Who'd have thunk it?
