Tier 1 (1-10) | Tier 2 (11-20) | Tier 3 (21-30) | Tier 4 (31-40) | Tier 5 (41-50) | Tiers 6-10 (51-100)



Tier Four (31-40)



Kenny Britt, WR, Rutgers:
Three-year player is the Big East's all-time leader in receiving yards… He has inconsistent hands, most likely from lack of concentration… Works hard and is very competitive… Should develop into a top player with the right quarterback.


Donald Brown, RB, Connecticut:
Brown was recruited by bigger schools, but they wanted him to play defensive back. Like Marshall Faulk (San Diego State), Brown chose to play RB at a smaller school… Ran for over 2,000 yards in 2008… Has very good instincts… Had a 41 ½-inch vertical jump at the combine.


Larry English, DE/OLB, Northern Illinois:
A four-year starter who was the first-ever player to be named MAC Defensive MVP in consecutive years… Very competitive and athletic enough to play in space… Had 18.5 sacks the past two seasons… Plays faster than his timed speed.


Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Maryland:
Ran 4.33 at the combine… Very athletic, with long arms and rare speed… He only caught 42 passes for 5 TDs in 2008, but he needed a better QB… Catches the ball well and has lots of upside.



Evander "Ziggy" Hood, DT, Missouri:
Played as a true freshman in 2005 and started the next three years… Had 15.5 sacks… Strong (34 lifts at the combine) with 4.89 speed and 33 ¾-inch arms… Good numbers for a DL.



Alex Mack, C, California:
Did not work out at the combine but was outstanding at Cal's pro day… An outstanding high school wrestler, if he gets his hands on you, you're in trouble… Very smart player who will perform at a high level for a long time.



Jamon Meredith, OT, South Carolina:
Weighs 307 pounds… Had a very good pro day workout… Will be best in a zone blocking scheme… Can play tackle or guard… Has 4.9 speed in the 40 and long arms (34 ½ inches).



Brian Robiskie, WR, Ohio State:
Son of former NFL receiver Terry Robiskie, who is currently WR coach for the Falcons… Outstanding competitor with great hands… If you need someone to make a catch to win the Super Bowl, he is the player… Solid player with great character.


Alphonso Smith, CB, Wake Forest:
All-time ACC leader in interceptions (21)… Very instinctive… Has great quickness and technique… Makes big plays… Size hurts (5-foot-9, 34-inch vertical jump).



Max Unger, C, Oregon:
Started 51 career games for the Ducks -- 25 at left tackle and 26 at center… Plays with intensity… Smart, but needs to get stronger.





Tier 1 (1-10) | Tier 2 (11-20) | Tier 3 (21-30) | Tier 4 (31-40) | Tier 5 (41-50) | Tiers 6-10 (51-100)
