Brandon Marshall - easy.
:thumbup: some others:

De'Arrius Howard, RB, Arkansas (think Rudi)

Jonathan Orr, WR, Wisconsin (think Chambers)

Garrett Mills, FB/TE, Tulsa (think Cooley)

Joe Toledo, OT, Washington (in time, could be a bookend LT)

James Wyche, DE, Syracuse (as a pass rush specialist)

Freddie Roach, LB, Alabama (as a Trotter-esque 2 down run stuffer)

 
Ingle Martin

:thumbup:
That would be cool. Big longshot, but I've invested some time hyping him.
I honestly think the guy has a shot. I may only share that opinion with Mr. and Mrs. Martin, but if you're going to pick a long shot, it might as well be a very long one!
 
Fine, Ill give you an UFA that should make a squad somewhere that has the potential to excel at special teams and even make it as a speedy OLB:

Mike Lorello, LB WVU

Kedric Golston DT Georgia 6'4'' 300 and Terna Nande OLB Miami(OH)

both have tremendous workout numbers and tons of potential

I think if Lorello makes it in the NFL it would be at Safety, not OLB.

Nande's measureables are off the charts. Im just not sure how you "develop" instincts, which is one of the bigger knocks on Terna. I think a lot of the gaps in his fundamentals can be helped, but I'm not sure he'll ever have that natural feel for the game that a pro bowl LB usually has. Definitely a candidate on his speed/strength combo though.
 
Jason Hatcher DE Grambling St. 6'5'' 284 he's massive and had some success at Grambling, needs work on technigue, perfect fro the 3-4 DE

 
OLB Mark Anderson (6-4, 254, 4.61, 10'7" jump, 42" vert, 4.22 20S)

Off the chart talent like Manny Lawson, but bigger and better suited to the 3-4. Could be the steal of the draft.

Have you ever seen Mark Simmineou(sp) on the Eagles?
 
Charles Gordon, Corner, Kansas.

Dude's a stud and will make a good PR/KR as well.

Others that come to mind:

Chris Chester, C/G, Oklahoma

Jon Scrifes, PK, MSU

Marcus Vick ;)

 
MARCUS VICK, QB, VT
Did I say "Name a guy who will not get drafted in this year's NFL Draft with potential to make inmate of the month at Blacksburg Correctional Facility"?I didn't think so...

 
Kyle Williams - DT LSU
Not sure he'll be a second day to be honest. Roughly reminds me of Hovan. We discussed this in the IDP forum a while back - Every time I watched LSU Williams jumped out at me more than Wroten, despite being the lesser regarded prospect.A very solid, safe 3rd round pick who will definitely contribute in a DT rotation.

 
WR Mike Hass, Oregon State
One of my favorite players in the draft, hands down. Congrats to whoever selects this guy. He's on the borderline between first and second day. Sure to surprise his doubters, just as he done at every level. A master technician and one of the hardest workers at any position. Sure he's never going to leave anyone in the dust, but he's unbelievably precise in his routes, has magnets for hands, is tough and physical, and even has some run after the catch abilities. I think he has Hines Ward upside for fantasy.
 
Jonathan Orr, WR, Wisconsin (think Chambers)
If he can greatly improve his hands and route running he could be a nice day 2 WR. Thats kind of a big "if" however.I still don't see the Chambers comparison unless it's because they are both black, played for U-dub, and have speed.

I like Gordon, but I like Will Blackmon better. They are similar type two-way athletic prospects who need to concentrate on CB.Chester will go first day now. I think he's overrated.

OZ, what are your thoughts on Nick Reid and Charlton Keith, two other jayhawks that are candidates for this list?

 
Matt Bernstein - FB Wisconsin.

Guy was a force at fullback until he was injured this year. Has the size and athleticism to be in the NFL for a long time.

 
Jonathan Orr, WR, Wisconsin (think Chambers)

What I saw in Orr at the Shrine game practices was the ability to get in position to make plays that very few WRs could make. What I didnt see was the ability to consistently finish the play. If you are the kind that likes boom/bust picks in rookie drafts - guys with a lesser chance to hit, but if they do, then watch out - then Orr is for you.One nice bonus for the team that drafts him is that Orr seems to have a zest for blocking. Often on the Brian Calhoun highlight reel runs, you will see Orr making a downfield block to get Calhoun free.

 
Where will Travis Wilson, WR, OU be drafted? I think he could be a star.
I like that call. Being as the TE class is very deep, D. Thomas, god foresaken Longhorn, will most likely go on day two. If taken by the right team and put into the right offense, I like his chances.

Love Nick Reid, very underrated, arguably the best LB nobody is talking about, great guy, but I'm not thinking "pro-bowl talent" I'm thinking good player, solid 4th or 5th round pick , not pro-bowler. From what I've seen the guy has great instincts, he doesn't get the credit he deserves outside of the big XII. Doesn't have the measurables people love. He'll be a valuable assett to his team. Might be a great fit for the Patriots or Steelers.Keith was dominant this year, but gets overlooked even in Lawrence. Has the potential to be better than Gordon or Reid, but might possibly go undrafted. Should be a good situational pass rusher, talent to be better.

Re: Chester, if he's a day one pick, he's probably overrated. Still, pro bowl "potential".

QB Bruce Gradkowski (not sure if he's projected as a 3rd Rounder or 4th Rounder) but I think he could be another Jeff Garcia type QB.
