Gil Brandt on 2011 prospects

By Rob Staton
Gil Brandt has begun his early look into the top 2011 senior prospects by breaking down the quarterbacks, running backs and receivers/tight ends. The obvious names are present - no surprises that Brandt ranks Jake Locker (QB, Washington) as a top ten pick. It's perhaps more interesting that he has Christian Ponder (QB, Florida State) as a late first rounder. I've seen Ponder ranked in the third round area, I've seen him as high as the top ten too. He's one to keep an eye on because his stock has such a large margin. It's not surprising that it's not a rich list of seniors at the skill positions due to the tendency for those prospects to declare early. There is some potential amongst the underclassmen though.

Here is a link to an SI story with some of National scoutings early draft grades too:

I'm definitely focusing on all of the top QBs and DEs heading in to this college season. I'm big fan of Ponder and seeing as how FSU is already gaining attention he could have a breakthrough year. Last year proved however that QBs can be very hard to grade when it comes to the draft.

Was wondering about people's opinion on MSU's defensive end pernell mcphee, where people see him ending up, and what round they see him going.
