    This draft is going to be deep for sure. All these underclassmen are trying to get paid before the work stoppage happens.

    this is a weak draft class

  3. WarrenMoonGOAT says: Jan 19, 2010 12:04 PM

    could’ve just kept the list all on one page instead of having to click it and be forwarded somewhere else

    These are just the underclassmen. Strong draft class.

    Are there a few names missing?
    Abe Koroma, Toby Gerhart, Chris Bell, Jerome Hayes
    I think they all indicated that they are foregoing their final year of eligibility as well…

    Although there are only 4 OL on this list, a team formed out of these 53 still would beat the Rams, Lions and a few more teams.

  7. No-Neck says: Jan 19, 2010 12:42 PM

    Agreed, very strong draft class. Scout.com has souble the amount of 5-star and 4-star players than any past seasons.

    Last years draft was weak overall. This years is very strong. A weak draft depends on how your team drafts, there really isn’t an overall weak draft as there are pro bowlers from every draft.

  9. WarrenMoonGOAT says: Jan 19, 2010 12:57 PM

    this list does not include seniors, there all juniors

  10. Jsaxdubv says: Jan 19, 2010 1:08 PM

    Renegade,
    Toby Gerhart didn’t get an early entry, he just didn’t attempt to get an extra year via medical redshirt. Not sure about the rest of the guys you mentioned.

  11. Mangy66 says: Jan 19, 2010 1:17 PM

    There are more than a few on there who have been ill-advised about coming out early.
    Stupid sports agents who convince these kids they’re ready, and are better than they really are. Just so they can make that quick draft buck.
    About half of these folks should really be here.

  12. jj jones says: Jan 19, 2010 1:21 PM

    Will be a great draft for teams like New England, San Fran, Seattle and Tampa that have early picks in the first two rounds.

  13. shaunypoo says: Jan 19, 2010 1:58 PM

    With so many underclassmen coming out, it is a weaker class. Some of them would refrain from coming out unless they thought they could get a good draft spot, which means alot of people think the senior class is weak. Only about a dozen or so of these names really flip my skirt.
    What does everyone else think, weak or strong?

  14. ENCPir873 says: Jan 19, 2010 2:29 PM

    “Reshad Joseph” DT from ECU…just looked on the roster & he wasn’t even listed…
    Hey Mike, who is this guy, and could you have meant Lynvall Joseph, a Junior DE from ECU?

  15. Tompadre says: Jan 19, 2010 6:46 PM

    Scouts say this class is very deep and was anticipated to be so, which is why a team like the Patriots stockpiled second round picks.
    ENCP –
    The first name of “Reshad” belonged to Reshad Jones the player listed above Joseph. It looks like someone just typed the first name in twice accidentally. Of course copy and paste works better, unless the original was screwed up.

    Cameron Heyward of Ohio St. is going back for his SR year, too?

    Scott Roosa, All-Conference CB,K,
