Can't (or Can) Miss

SI's Jim Trotter and Peter King pick the Eric Berry (most pro-ready) and Akwasi Owusa-Ansah (most intriguing sleeper) at other key positions
April 18, 2010

PRO READY

QB

Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame

Played in a pro-style offense, coached by NFL vet Charlie Weis for three years. Maturity and leadership remain questions.

RB

C.J. Spiller, Clemson (above)

Speedy, big-play back with star potential averaged 191.4 all-purpose yards and more than one touchdown a game in '09.

WR

Dez Bryant, Oklahoma State

Has the tools to be draft's most explosive player, but '09 NCAA suspension over contact with Deion Sanders raises caution flag.

OL

Russell Okung, Oklahoma State

Guard who excels in pass protection. Needs to get stronger but has the talent and temperament to start immediately.

DL

Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska

Huskers tackle was most dominant down lineman in football last year. At 6'4" and 307 pounds, skilled against the run and pass.

LB

Rolando McClain, Alabama

Butkus Award winner and three-year starter has size (6'3", 254), instincts. Received NFL-caliber coaching under Nick Saban.

INTRIGUING SLEEPERS

QB

John Skelton, Fordham

Cannon-armed and 6'5", he's fifth on some scouts' QB boards. Good development project for a Mike McCarthy or an Andy Reid.

RB

Lonyae Miller, Fresno State (above)

Backup to '09 rushing leader Ryan Matthews should go in middle rounds thanks to bullish 221-pound frame and ability to get outside.

WR

Armanti Edwards, Appalachian State

Led monumental upset of Michigan in '07, and now trying to emulate Antwaan Randle El: move from college QB to NFL slot receiver.

OL

Zane Beadles, Utah

One of the few Day 3 line prospects who could play NFL tackle or guard, though might not be athletic enough for the former long term.

DL

Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, Washington

Huskies' alltime sack leader is an effort guy and has drawn mucho interest from the Pats. That should tell you he's got promise.

LB

Kyle Bosworth, UCLA

Mentored by Uncle Brian—yes, the Boz. Maybe this late-round inside 'backer prospect will have a better pro career.
