    Every year there is that one draft pick where a team reaches BIG TIME (see Tebow) and there's also that one player that gets drafted way lower than expected if not drafted at all (like Rogers).

    Who do you guys thing will be the players this year?

    Ryan Tannehill he is very athletic and can run the ball, but very raw only having 20 starts at QB. Played receiver for his first two years of college. Has the upside and potential, but top 15 pick? That's where most people are placing him, I think it's way to early for him but the need for a single caller are placing these 2nd day Qb in the first round.

    Ensconatus beat me to it so I'll add another name to the list

    Michael Brockers very very raw, does have the potential. Since when do teams move players into the top end of the first round based on potential only. He has very limited film to make a decent judgement call. He will be a boom or bust player. He will either shine or get washed away. He can be a great starting DT or 3-4 end someday. I just don't understand the hype over him or why he shot up to the number 1 prospect so quickly.

    Brockers might be a bust. He might not. However, I'm not sure he really shot up. A lot of people were saying that he was a top 5 pick for 2013 before the National Championship game. Nobody had him in mocks for this year because there was nothing that suggested he was going pro.

    Matt Barkley over, typical USC QB

    Isaiah Pead under, I think he is going to turn heads and fast

    I went to the Music City Bowl because my friend who rides the bench for MSU got me tickets. I sat next to Vick Ballard's dad. I didn't even know who Ballard was because I don't pay enough attention to NCAA, but he had a monster game.
