    Av's All-Draft-Eligible Team

    This is my current list of the prospects at each position that I think will make the best Pro players. This is NOT a projection of who will be taken first at each position. For example, I expect Matt Barkley will be the first QB taken, but I don't think he'll be the best Pro from this year's crop of passers.

    Also included is my current "top sleeper" pick:

    So... here it is... (for now):

    QB: E.J. Manuel, Florida State
    RB: LeVeon Bell, Michigan State
    FB: Trey Millard, Oklahoma
    WR: Terrance Williams, Baylor
    WR: DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson
    OT: Luke Joekel, Texas A&M
    OG: Chance Warmack, Alabama
    C: Barrett Jones, Alabama
    OG: Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina
    OT: Taylor Lewin, Michigan
    TE: Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame (SLEEPER: Joseph Fauria, UCLA)

    DE: Bjoern Werner, Florida State
    DE: Sam Montgomery, LSU
    DT: Star Lotulelei, Utah
    DT: Sharrif Floyd, Florida
    OLB: Chase Thomas, Stanford
    MLB: Manti Te’o, Notre Dame
    OLB: Jarvis Jones, Georgia
    CB: Dee Milner, Alabama
    CB: Xavier Rhodes, Florida State
    FS: Eric Reid, LSU
    SS: Matt Elam, Florida

    Re: Av's All-Draft-Eligible Team

    Awesome thread concept! Here are my thoughts on some of your picks...

    QB: E.J. Manuel, Florida State
    -I've never really been sold on Manuel for some reason. I don't have much confidence in his overall decision making, which is a big factor for me when looking at quarterbacks.

    RB: LeVeon Bell, Michigan State
    -Bell strikes me as one of those guys who is going to come off the board on Day 2/3 and suddenly emerge as a productive player in the league. He's not going to wow you, but I can see him having a good career as the lead horse in a backfield.

    WR: Terrance Williams, Baylor
    -I saw Williams run all over WVU in person, and I don't know how much of that is a testament to Williams and how much is the WVU defense. That said, the guy is talented and I think you've made a good point in the past about receivers showing promise when coming from this system. Combination of size and downfield ability is very intriguing.

    OT: Luke Joekel, Texas A&M
    -Best OT in the draft IMO, and a likely Top 5 pick.

    OG: Chance Warmack, Alabama
    C: Barrett Jones, Alabama
    -Either of these guys would look great in horns. Warmack is a solid first round option, where as Jones could slip into the second depending on how he tests athletically, and he'd be a steal there.

    TE: Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame (SLEEPER: Joseph Fauria, UCLA)
    -Love Eifert as a possible late Round One option. Fauria would be a great option if he's available on Day Three; hard to not think about guys at his position with that kind of height advantage, especially in the red zone.

    OLB: Chase Thomas, Stanford
    -I love Thomas; he seems almost unblockable at times. Could be a very intriguing option at SAM linebacker for this team.

    CB: Dee Milner, Alabama
    -I like what Milliner could do at the next level. I'd prefer him to previous Crimson Tide CB prospect Dre Kirkpatrick, who was a Top 20 pick in his own right. Combination of size and coverage skills in today's league is where it's at.

    Re: Av's All-Draft-Eligible Team

    I figured my pick of Manuel would be questioned. Basically, I'm not that impressed with the top prospects, so I went with a guy who is pretty raw, but has a lot of upside.
