    We all like to talk about the guys we like and brag about our scouting abilities, so I think this would be something fun to do now when we are in the heart of the college season --- and update once we are closer to the draft --- and maybe again once guys are matching up to teams.

    Name your 5 guys that you think are most likely to make an immediate impact in the NFL and become superstars/All-Pros/regular Pro Bowlers over the next few seasons.

    For example: If you were doing this for the 2009 Draft and you picked Brian Orakpo, Clay Matthews, Mike Wallace, BJ Raji, and Josh Freeman -- you'd be looking pretty good.

    Pick your 5 guys for the 2012 class. I'll have my 5 guys up later today when I get back home from family stuff.

    QB Robert Griffin III I think with the recent success of Cam a lot of teams are going to be hot on Griffin. He is a threat to run the ball and he is extremely accurate. If put in the right system he could very well be one of the best rookies next year.

    DT Devon Still 16.5 tackles for loss and 4 sacks he has been an nightmare for teams, very stout against the run and able to get pressure

    DE Vinny Curry I think a lot of these 3-4 teams are going to fall in love with this kid. He'll be playing the rush linebacker position for any 3-4 and will have an impact rookie year getting close to double digit sacks

    RB Montee Ball This guy just has a sense for the endzone 30 total touchdowns on the year.

    WR Marvin McNutt Depending which team he ends up with will depend if he will be an impact player or not. He going to be one of those guys who you won't here from early in the season but by the end he will catch fire. Sure hands, good routes, and good speed with a big frame to work with.
