  • Info N/A
Best Players

1. Mark Sanchez (I have tasted the Dilfer Kool-Aid and it is good)
2. Jason Smith
3. B.J. Raji

Biggest Busts

1. Matt Stafford (Lions WILL FIND A WAY to screw him up)
2. Michael Crabtree (we'll see who eats crow on this one)
3. Brian Orakpo (Epic tweener fail)
Best Players

Aaron Curry - explosive, hard hitting and high character LB's go very far.

Michael Crabtree - hands, route running, leaping and body control all top notch next great WR

Knoshown Moreno - will go to a good team and be the best of his RB class


I don't like labelling people busts as they normally are just victim of injury or falling into the wrong situation but here's a few who might struggle.


Chris Wells - reminds me of Benson I don't see the willingness to stick his head in for the tough yards, coupled with the inability to play through pain I see red flags.

BJ Raji - has gotten by being stronger than everyone else in addition to having a beast next to him, if made the main guy I can see a dissapointing player esp as a 3-4 NT. (If he goes to the Jags he'll be a stud!)

Aaron Maybin - If asked to take on LT's full time he'll be a liability against the run and relegated to a very expensive 3rd down specialist. (If he finds his way to 4-3 WILL he'll be a stud)

A lot of this depends on where players go and the system.

Best - Curry, Moreno, Matthews
Bust - Stafford, Sanchez, Freeman anyone the Raiders take
This place has a fascination with busts.

!!!!
Too bad this thread will be long gone before we can judge the 09 draft class.
