It's been almost three weeks since I published my early list of the "Hot 100" prospects for the 2010 draft. Even broken down into groups of 10, there has been enough information gathered in recent days to call for a few tweaks.
I'm not going to nitpick to the point of saying something was t5he 25th-best prospect and now they're No. 23. But there are enough guys who I have moving up and down in the "tier" groupings to provide an update.
Here is my final list of the "Hot 100" draft prospects, listed alphabetically within their tiers:
Tier One (1-10 listed alphabetically)
Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
5-11 5/8, 211
Smart, with excellent ball skills. Former cornerback with outstanding athleticism. High-character person.
Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
6-4 ¼, 236
A natural leader, athletic and very accurate. Threw 50 touchdown passes in 2008.
Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa
6-5 3/8, 314
An outstanding run blocker in the zone blocking system. He is mean and aggressive, and has been very well coached.
Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
6-2 5/8, 222
A very accurate passer. He threw only four interceptions in 2009 -- and one of those was a fluke that bounced off a player's back. He can work under center or in the shotgun. Well coached by Charlie Weis.
Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers
6-foot-5, 323 pounds
(UP FROM TIER 2) Huge man with ability, and he moves well. He needs to get stronger, and also needs to show more passion for the game.
Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
6-5 1/4, 307
His 38-inch arms and great footwork make him an outstanding pass protector. Four-year starter in a good program. Was great in college against top pass rushers.
Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida
6-4 5/8, 270
(UP FROM TIER 2) Very limited football background. He was a high school basketball player with only eight games at the Div. I level. Has outstanding speed and athletic ability.
Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
6-3 7/8, 307
Very strong and very athletic, he has outstanding quickness and a motor that never stops. He can play end if needed.
Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
6-4 5/8, 315
Has outstanding fundamentals for the system. Well coached, he can play right or left tackle. Has a very good punch.
Tier 1 (1-10) | Tier 2 (11-20) | Tier 3 (21-30) | Tier 4 (31-40) | Tier 5 (41-50) | Tier 6-10 (51-100)
