Bucky Brooks at NFL.com has listed the top senior prospects to keep an eye on in 2009 ahead of next year's draft. Tim Ruskell favors four year starters and guys who stay in school over underclassmen and with Seattle owning two first round picks in 2010 - there may be some future Seahawks amongst this group.
On paper it certainly looks a stronger senior class. Brooks has Brandon Spikes, Greg Hardy and George Selvie outside of his top ten which is some indication of the depth. There's one noticeable absentee - probably the most high profile senior of the lot. Tim Tebow anyone? He's not in this top 16 and this is likely a debate we'll be hearing a lot all the way through to next year's event.
