Early Draft Peek

As a very, very early look at what the top players in the 2010 draft might be, I inventoried the top five players from ten mock drafts.  Only one player was in the top five on all 10 drafts -- defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

Here is the list with number of Top 5 occurrences:

Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska - 10
Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame - 8
Eric Berry, S, Tennessee - 7
Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma - 7
Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State - 7
Jake Locker, QB, Washington - 3
Derrick Morgan, DE/OLB, Georgia Tech - 2
Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State - 2
Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland - 1
Terrence Cody, DT, Alabama - 1
Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma - 1
Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida - 1
Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma - 1

It's far too early to make a prediction since the combine is still weeks away and underclassmen have until January 15th, 2010 to declare.  But there are a couple things to notice:  1)  lots of defensive line, 2) several QBs, 3) no cornerbacks listed(!).
Here are the draft sites I visited:

2- NewNFLDraft.com
3- WalterFootball.com
4- MyNFLDraft.com
5- BleacherReport.com
6- FootballsFuture.com
7- NFLDraftDog.com
8- DraftSite.com
9- NBCSports.com
10- NFLDraftBlitz.com

Another pulse will be taken after the NFL combine.  Remember, the draft this year starts on a Thursday night!
