    good idea in my opinion but can we limit the discussion to draft eligible only prospects? until the underclassman officially declare it just creates to much uncertainty (not to mention self impossed blackout of a certain player) that doesn't count does it?

    well i can give you an eye witness report of leak. he can't take a hit. the guy will fall down in the face of a defender. also, meyer doesn't know how to adapt to his players.

    good list but i think a few changes could be made:

    Reggie Bush USC RB
    Matt Leinart USC QB
    Drew Stanton MICHST QB
    Marcus Vick VT QB
    Chad Henne MICH QB
    Michael Hart MICH RB
    A.J. Hawk OSU MLB
    Tedd Ginn Jr OSU WR
    Adrian Petterson OKL RB
    Vince Young TEX QB
    Brady Quinn ND QB
    Maurice Drew UCLA RB
    Laurence Maroney MIN RB
    Elvis Dumervil LOU DE
    Chris Leak FLR QB [imo the best player in the nation]
    Brian Calhoun WIS RB
    Chad Jakson FLR WR
    Omar Jacobs BG QB
    Derek Hagan ARST WR
    Laron Landry LSU FS
    Jimmy Williams VT CB
    Darnell Bing USC SS
    Mathias Kiwanuka BC DE
    Mario Williams NCST DE
    DeAngelo Williams Mem RB
    Alan Zemaitis PSU CB
    Ernie Sims FSU LB
    Lendale White RB USC
    Joe Addiai LSU RB (homer pick but best RB in the SEC, best all-around back behind bush)
    Calvin Johnson GT WR

    I would have to say that 1) Chris Leak is not the best player in the nation. 2) Joseph Addai is not the best all around back behind Bush, Maurice Drew is. Maurice Drew might even be more of an all around threat than Bush because of his insane punt return numbers.

    forgot about drew, he is good but of course it is the pac-10. i took that from mel kiper before the year so drew has taken over that spot. however, drew is not a better all around player. bush averages 30 more all-purose yards a game and this is without getting to return many punts and having to share time with a back that averages more than 100 yards rushing a game himself.

    I think Leak will be a future star in the NFL too, this season has been a disaster though, which is why I don't think he is currently the best player in the ncaa.

    There is the CB Jimmy Williams from VaTech who is 6'3 and fast. He will probably be a top 10 pick.

    Blackmon's stock should plummet from him playing WR all year.

    add S Slay from Texas Tech to that list....play maker! 6 games...6 fumbles caused from the safty. he dares recievers to come across the middle.
