Pretty good article from Yahoo Sports.

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu...yhoo&type=lgns

Some highlights

Overrated prospects

OG Duke Robinson, Oklahoma
Robinson looks every bit the part with long arms and a massive frame, and he has proven that he could be effective as a drive blocker and even help outside in a pinch. Nonetheless, his personality really rubbed executives the wrong way in team interviews, his lazy streak consistently shows up in his play, and his lack of discipline could prevent him from living up to expectations, considering that he likely will be drafted in the first three rounds.

Underrated

Overrated prospects

QB Stephen McGee, Texas A&M
Physically and mentally tough, McGee has the makeup desired to be groomed as a quarterback. And after former NFL head coach Mike Sherman spoke glowingly about his talents to NFL clubs in attendance at his pro day, they have awoken to the upside of the former option quarterback. A patient QB coach who can correct his footwork could develop McGee into an NFL starter
(ELSID13 I really hoping that we take him)

RB Glen Coffee, Alabama
Pound for pound, Coffee is a very strong, hard-charging runner who could fit very well in a one-cut, zone running scheme. He may not be drafted in the first two rounds, but in the right scheme, he could be very good.
(ELSID13 runner that fits what Turner likes to do.)

Stephen McGee can run his ass off too. Very similar skill set to Cutler (though not nearly as fast, accurate, or strong armed ).
