We take a look at how the 2010 Draft Class will be seen in five years. Guaranteed.
Best QB: Colt McCoy (Texas)
– Sam Bradford and Jimmy Clausen will be drafted ahead of him, but McCoy has the best tools to succeed in the NFL long-term. His accuracy, intelligence, toughness and mobility screams Drew Brees.
Best RB: Ryan Mathews (Fresno State)
– Running back’s success depends so much on the system, and Mathews is a great fit for a zone-scheme. He’s the most talented of the bunch as a pure runner.
Best WR: Dez Bryant (Oklahoma State)
– People forget how dominant Bryant was in 2008. He has the look of an Andre Johnson or Calvin Johnson.
Best TE: Jermaine Gresham (Oklahoma)
– If he can stay healthy, Gresham will be a Pro Bowler before the 2015 season.
Best OT: Russell Okung (Oklahoma State)
- Expected to make an immediate impact, Okung could join the likes of Joe Thomas and Jake Long as top 5 selections to make an early Pro Bowl.
Best OG: Jon Asomoah (Illinois)
– A powerful run blocker, but quietly skilled in pass-pro. We really like how well rounded Asomoah is.
Best OC: Maurkice Pouncey (Florida)
– Hands down, the best center in the draft. Could be moved to guard in the NFL.
Best DE: Derrick Morgan (Georgia Tech)
– Such a natural pass rusher. Morgan has the moves, tools and athleticism to make a quick impact.
Best DT: Ndamukong Suh (Nebraska)
– A no-brainer. We see Suh as the best player in the draft, and the best defensive line prospect in my lifetime.
Best OLB: Sergio Kindle (Texas)
– Looking at Kindle as a 3-4 outside linebacker, he has the violent blitzing skills to have a Brian Orakpo-like impact.
Best ILB: Rolando McClain (Alabama)
– We see a lot of similarities in McClain and Jerod Mayo. Expect him to make a huge impact as a rookie.
Best CB: Kyle Wilson (Boise State)
– A stud in press coverage, Wilson is likely leap-frogging Florida’s Joe Haden.
Best S: Earl Thomas (Texas)
– He may play corner, maybe he’s at safety, but either way he’s a Pro Bowler.
