One week to go in the NFL regular season and here's a big update to get your teeth into.
Sam Bradford was named the Associated Press player of the year today, beating Tim Tebow and Colt McCoy to the award. Will he declare for the draft?
Vontae Davis, corner back from Illinois says he will declare for the 2009 draft. I would be surprised if Seattle took a CB in the first or second round, an assumption based on the talent pool and the selection of Kelly Jennings and Josh Wilson in recent drafts. Marcus Trufant was also signed to a multi-year deal last off season.
Scouts Inc. have published a big board. Top of the list is Andre Smith, tackle from Alabama. He scores a 98 approval rating, the same score as Sam Bradford in number two. Matt Stafford, Michael Crabtree, Malcolm Jenkins and Aaron Curry all scored 97.
Talking of Smith, Steve Muench wonders whether or not he can handle elite speed rushers. He studies the film to come up with conclusions on the offensive tackles technique and talent. He also looks at the recent match up between B.J. Raji and Nick Marshman and Juaquin Iglesias' performance against the Missouri defense.
Todd McShay looks at his top five pass rushers who might declare for 2009. He has Everette Brown from Florida State ranked highest. Should he have been in our poll to find out the top rated defensive prospect?
Now for some mock drafts. J.R. Glymph at NFL Draft Blitz has Seattle selecting Ole Miss tackle Michael Oher fifth overall.
Pete Dymeck at Sideline Scouting has the 'Hawks taking Michael Crabtree, quoting that the pick "makes too much sense".
Draft King agrees and has the Seahawks taking the Texas Tech receiver. He also has Sam Bradford going first overall to the Lions.
Finally, Kyle Rota from College Talent Scout has a report on Oklahoma guard Duke Robinson. To see what Kyle thinks check the link, there's also other prospect analysis on his blog and it's well worth a read.
