Top NCAA/NFL Prospects

FOOCH'S NOTE: Consider this our current Official thread for draft and offseason discussion

It seems that there hasn't been draft talks for a few weeks now so I wanted to open it back up for discussion. It's still absurdly premature to start naming teams in order of draft pick but it's still kind of fun even though it's been done a thousand times since the beginning of the season. I'll highlight the players that I think will be the most likely candidates to be able to make an immediate impact in the NFL. This is probably the most elaborate anyone has really gone in to it I think but I spent a bit of time putting it together so hopefully a few of you all will enjoy....

The main reason I am posting this now is because this week will officially mark the halfway point of the 2009 Season.

I will list the positions and then top prospects of my opinion. Please add players that you think should be on those lists should I forget to mention a few.

Feel free to post your your thoughts and or 2010 NFL mock drafts. I like seeing the possibilities and the convo it drives.
