Top 15 for the 2009 NFL Draft

-Brought to you by

1. LB James Laurinaitis (Ohio State)
  • Can read all the plays and stops the run very well.

2. WR Michael Crabtree (Texas Tech)*
  • One of the most athletic receivers to come out in a while.

3. CB Malcolm Jenkins (Ohio State)
  • Jenkins can be a successful NFL cornerback.

4. RB Chris Wells (Ohio State)
  • Will likely be the top running back available in 2009

5. DE Tyson Jackson (LSU)
  • Big man stuffs the line and makes big plays for LSU.

6. OT Michael Oher (Ole Miss)
  • Oger will be a cornerstone on whichever line takes him.

7. WR Percy Harvin (Florida)*
  • Very very athletic. Harvin can do it all and is super quick.

8. LB Ray Maualuga (USC)
  • Should be a great NFL linebacker for years to come.

9. QB Tim Tebow (Florida)*
  • Can do it all. Many think he can be a franchise QB.

10. S Myron Rolle (Florida State)*
  • Very talented safety from the Seminoles.

11. OT Andre Smith (Alabama)*
  • Smith is a super talented tackle that will help any line.

12. LB Brandon Spikes (Florida)*
  • Spikes has to improve in some areas but is very talented.

13. OG Duke Robinson (Oklahoma)
  • Another great lineman. Robinson should be a high pick.

14. S Nic Harris (Oklahoma)
  • Harris is one of the better defensive backs available in 09.

15. RB P. J. Hill (Wisconsin)
  • Hill is a little slow but his power is what gets him here.

Top 15 for 2009 NFL Draft

OK, I agree with 10 of your picks, but I have got 5 to replace: Crabtree, Oger, Andre Smith, Harris and Hill. Try these on for size: Brian Cushing, LB USC, Ciron Black, OT LSU, Taylor Mays, S USC, Sean Lee, LB Penn State and Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR Maryland. It is a bit early and these will change a ton of times during the year, but I think the Top 15 list is better with my 5 added to it.

I hate the thought also, but this is just a list of the best 15 players that could come out after next season. I agree completely about Tebow.

I hate the thought that these gators will leave early.  If Percy stays healthy and has a good year, yea, he'll go.  Spikes too.  But Tebow is going to be in Florida for four years.  The kid has to good of a head on his shoulders to pass up an education for the NFL.

Dan, I find most of your posts here to be very thorough and informative. But I do disagree with your "Top 15" list for next year's draft. We both know that there will be a TON of changes between now and next April. But for you to have only 1 USC defensive player on your list isn't accurate. At the LEAST, they will have 2 in the Top 10. They could have 3 in the Top 12 and 4 in the Top 20. You mentioned Maualuga. But you need to list Ellison, Mays, and Cushing as well. I am not a USC fan, nor am I a person who hates USC football. I am relatively neutral. But the talent they have on the defensive side of the ball at Troy this coming year (in terms if NFL talent) is scary!

I hope he doesn't. I don't think he will. I want to win a national title at Florida and so does he. If he stays the next two years then we have two very good chances. I agree about Tebow though. He loves college football too much to leave early. The spread offense really opened up Florida's passing game and made him look better as a passer than he is. I love Tebow though.

Thanks, lol that's what happens when you have Michael Crabtree listed before Malcolm Jenkins.
