Post Goose's 2010 Top 100 Prospects
http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent ... 50970.html

Rick Gosselin's mock draft always gets a lot of pub, but his top 100 is equally as impressive. It is a good tool to use to grade the value of the first 3-4 rounds...

Quote:
You have to go back to 2001 to find the last time a defensive tackle was selected in the top 3 of an NFL draft. The Cleveland Browns took Gerard Warren with the third overall choice that year.

You have to go back to 1992 to find the last time two defensive tackles went in the top 3. The Indianapolis Colts claimed Steve Emtman first and the Los Angeles Rams took Sean Gilbert third that year.

But the 2010 draft offers maybe the deepest and most talented class of defensive tackles in NFL history – and it starts at the top, where Ndamukong Suh of Nebraska and Gerald McCoy of Oklahoma sit atop the board as the two most talented players in this draft.

Only the presence of a franchise quarterback – Sam Bradford of Oklahoma – seems to be preventing Suh and McCoy from becoming the first pair of defensive tackles to go 1-2 in NFL draft history.

Suh and McCoy are three-year starters and two-time All-Big 12 selections. Suh won the Bednarik, Lombardi, Nagurski and Outland trophies/awards for his defensive excellence in 2009. McCoy started 40 consecutive games before deciding to skip his senior season to turn pro.

Since 2000, an average of 20 defensive tackles are selected each draft. But the talent will flow deep into the seventh round in 2010 with 26 draftable tackle prospects on this board.

Pencil in Suh at No. 1 on the annual Top 100 of SportsDay. The Top 100 is compiled based on conversations with NFL general managers, personnel directors, pro and college coaches and scouts. This is not a mock draft. Teams will skip around the board on draft day to make selections that fit their needs.3. Eric BerryS, Tennessee

Berry may be the surest bet for greatness at the top of this draft board. He started all four seasons in high school and all three in college. He left high school and college as an All-America. He's leaving school early to turn pro, but benefited in 2009 by playing at Tennessee for Monte Kiffin, a veteran NFL coordinator. Safeties historically don't go high in drafts, but Berry does not feel out of place with his lofty status on this board. "At the end of the day, I believe I'm supposed to be up there with those guys," Berry said. "I believe I'm the most talented player in this draft."

Thanks for posting this. I'm kinda surprised that he has Carlos Dunlap all the way down at 92. I knew he was falling, but damn.

Akwasi Owusu-Ansah not included? I think he's wrong on that one. I see him going from between 60-75, possibly sooner.

Jimmy Graham not in the Top 100 either. I think he has a better chance of being in the top 100 than Tony Moeaki. And I can't say I agree with Corey Peters being a Top 100 selection.
