    No need to be a prick about it Yell, their was supposedly 2 before last years draft.
    Aaron Curry and M.Crabtree. Calvin Johnson 2 year before that.

    Not to speak for Yell, but I think his post is written with a hint of sarcasm. The concept of "blue-chip" is very hard to define at best. Add to that the fact that only half the college season has been played, and it becomes hard (read: impossible) to nail down a question such as the one posed in this thread.

    Assuming we can agree on the definition of "blue-chip", there may turn out to be 3, maybe 14, maybe none. It's just hard to tell at this point.

    Thank you for your input Hub, living in England I find it almost impossible to see college
    football. This was the reason for the question, the Rams season is done so I might as well start to inquire now.

    Re: How many Blue-chip players in draft??

    Why not Bradford, McCoy, Clausen, Locker at QB?
    Why not Spiller at RB?
    Okung or Williams at OT?
    Hardy at DE?
    Cody at DT?

    Oh look, that's 14. What's a blue chip prospect?
    Brandon Graham at OLB?

    Mays overrated IMO not great in coverage, he will make a big hit, but otherwise isn't an overly reliable

    Kindle and McCoy could be 1st rounders, but they aren't blue chip prospects

    Re: How many Blue-chip players in draft??

    If we really want to pursue this line, we need to define "blue-chip prospect". According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a blue-chip prospect is...

    Doesn't really help much, does it? Hmm, anyone care to clarify the definition?
