Rotoworld's Top Ten
Kind of different:
1. G Chance Warmack, Alabama
Where he wins: Everywhere. Crushing blocker with an attitude to finish. Fluid mover for his size and gets in correct body position to seal off lanes. Technically sound player that could likely play either guard spot.
2. T Eric Fisher, Central Michigan
Where he wins: Long left tackle that finds contact through his hands with quick extension. Flashes nastiness as a drive blocker or when finishing off blocks in pass protection. Still filling out frame, but doesn't have to.
3. DT Star Lotulelei, Utah
Where he wins: Pegged as a pure nose tackle, but that would be a disservice to his versatility. Can play along the front and shows agile feet for someone his size. Can be dominant for a stretch of plays and rarely took a seat on the bench at Utah.
4. LB Dion Jordan, Oregon
Where he wins: A personal favorite. Extremely fluid and agile from his linebacker spot. Could see him thriving as a strong side linebacker who moves into a pass rushing role when called upon. Strong hands and flashes persistence around the corner.
5. T Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M
Where he wins: Technically sound player with good knee bend and athletic footwork to mirror or halt his oppositionís momentum. Punch and arm extension helps absorb power and should be a quality left tackle for a long time.
6. T Lane Johnson, Oklahoma
Where he wins: Athleticism to mirror is excellent. Despite lean frame, can handle physical play on first contact and resets well with footwork. Lands multiple punches if he canít gain the inside latch.
7. LB Arthur Brown, Kansas State
Where he wins: Instinctive, quick, and physical for his size. Believe he could play inside in any scheme but could thrive on the weakside. Doesnít shy away from contact but also has the speed to beat ball carriers to the edge or stick with his assignment in coverage.
8. WR Tavon Austin, West Virginia
Where he wins: An absolute joystick in the open field with the ball in his hands. Made plays beyond receiving role, as a ball carrier and as a returner. Cuts to make defenders miss with acceleration to keep angles changing are outstanding.
9. DE Ezekiel Ansah, BYU
Where he wins: After generating separation or finding himself in space, his closing speed is the best in this draft. Plenty of motor to chase. Already a solid run defender and saw snaps at rush linebacker, end in a three man or four man, and inside at tackle. Strong on first contact.
10. DE Cornellius Carradine, FSU
Where he wins: Explosive off the snap and follows it up with strong hand use to keep separation or disengage. Plays with leverage to drive opposition back if need be or keep his position to set the edge as a run defender.
