DYNASTY: 2012 Top college prospects

1,022 posts in this topic

Now that we'll know soon who all is declaring for the 2011 draft, a lot of us also have developmental-player drafts in other leagues that will be coming up shortly. So let's get some discussion started on the next wave of top prospects for 2012.

Obviously Andrew Luck and Trent Richardson seem to be the leaders of the class. Then I suppose there's Dion Lewis and Lamichael James if he in fact doesn't declare this year.

Who are some other names we need to start to get to know that could be draft-eligible after the next college season?

Lewis is entering this year's draft. He went to prep school before Pitt.

I didn't see that he declared. Interesting.

It is being reported he has declared. I didn't see this coming.

I didn't think he was eligible to, good choice. I think Quizz and LeShoure are clearly better, but if the decision maker's disagree Lewis could be an early rounder in an otherwise pretty weak class.

Here are some players to keep an eye on, and to get this thread going:

Quarterback

Andrew Luck, Stanford - Was the # 1 prosepct this year, will be the # 1 prospect next year

Running Back

Trent Richardson, Alabama - Should explode with full time role

Knile Davis, Arkansas - Once he got the full time gig, he put up monster stats. I like him alot, and he will be a fast riser on draft boards.

Chris Polk, Washingon

Wide Receiver

Alshon Jeffrey. South Carolina - Complete Package

As of right now...

QB:

- Andrew Luck, Stanford

RB:

- Trent Richardson, Alabama

- LaMichael James, Oregon

WR:

- Alshon Jeffrey, S. Carolina

- Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma

Luck, Richardson and Jeffrey will be the "Big 3" and then probably a pretty steep dropoff in skill position talent (although, as always, others will emerge).

----------------

2013 Draft

- RB, Marcus Lattimore, S. Carolina

- RB, Michael Dyer, Auburn

- RB, James White, Wisconsin

Good call. Davis is getting overlooked big time.

Another guy I will be following is WR Juron Criner of Arizona

I haven't looked a tonne of yet, but I think 2012 could have a very good RB class. A couple lesser known guys to keep an eye on for next season (besides Kniles and Polk who are already listed):

Cyrus Gray RB Texas A&M

Christine Michael RB Texas A&M

Bryce Brown RB Kansas State

Tauren Poole RB Tennessee

I would add Ronnie Hillman to the 2012 list.

Is LSU's Terrence Toliver still a good prospect?

This class could get a big bump if Blackmon and/or Floyd really decide not to come out this year.

Agreed. At the end of last season it was looking like the 2011 draft was going to be loaded but now it's appearing more and more likely that 2012 has more high-end offensive talent.

Isn't he a senior? and no, he's not a great prospect. Not even as good as LaFell.

A little premature with this thread. Some of these guys saying they will return will probably change their mind. They have until the 15th I believe.

Love the call on Knile Davis. He seems the most under the radar right now

Washaun Ealey, rb for Georgia isn't a top prospect but he's a guy to keep your eye on. He averaged 5.7 ypc as a freshman and 5.2 ypc last year and that's against SEC competition, that's saying something

iMO Trent Richardson will not do nearly as well in the Pro's as in college

Toliver is a senior, and not a good prospect at all. BUT, I'm surprised no one has mentioned Rueben Randle for the 2012 class. Yum.

Shouldn't Blackmon top the charts for WRs in 2012?

Alshon Jeffery will be the number 1 WR prospect

No way! With Justin Blackmon and Michael Floyd returning to their school for upcoming 2011 Fall season, Blackmon and Floyd are far better than Jeffery. Jeffery looks a little stiff in his hip and does not possessed quickness or speed to evade the defenders.

Come on man, No way!.... I wrote that before they both decided to go back to school.Yes Blackmon may sit ahead of him, but I like Jeffery moving into next year over Floyd.

Jeffery will still be the more highly touted WR come end of next year.

Michael will be a junior next year, and with Gray graduating and an awesome OL coming back (2 soph and 2 fish started this year), I'll imagine he would come back for his senior year.Gray took off after Michael broke his leg this year. Nice to be an Aggie fan and finally have a football team again.Jeff Fuller (A&M Jr. WR) is deciding on going pro or not. He has great size and hands, first 1,000 yard receiver ever at A&M, and career TD leader, and did pretty well against Peterson from LSU in the Cotton Bowl (7 catches for 83). He hasn't done too well against good defenses though, so I think he may come back for his senior year.

Why?
Jeffrey is 6'4" 233 while blackmon is 6'1 205. Plus some ppl are wary of qb's and wr's from OSU because they have a pass happy offense that inflates stats.

OK, well, I think all you have to do is watch tape on Blackmon to see that he's an absolute beast.

Jeffrey is the WR to have in 2012. No doubt about it. Of course Blackmon and Floyd will also be 1st rd picks if they don't digress.

Jeffrey is the wideout to own because he's bigger than Blackmon and Floyd? Great logic.

The big names have been mentioned, but I'll add Andre Ellington as a RB to watch. He's smallish, but a definite playmaker.

I didn't say that size was the reason. I'm an SEC guy and I know what Jeffrey is and he is very good.
