2009 NFL Draft

Post  Big_Pete on Thu Jul 03, 2008 12:47 am

Here is an early look at the 2009 nfl draft and the top prospects at each position.
I have included my thoughts on underclassmen who are likely to declare.
And an early estimate of the round a player where a player may drafted (based on talent, production and value).

Bear in mind that these numbers will change significantly by the combine as players undertake intensive pre-combine preparations.

(note: loosly based off nfldraftscout)
