The new post combine rankings from Nfl Draft Countdown
I thought Greenway would have fallen more and Lawson would have climbed further.
Scott Wright's Top 32 Players for the 2006 NFL Draft
Player Class Position School
1. Reggie Bush JR RB Southern Cal
You won't find a more explosive, dynamic playmaker in the country.
2. D'Brickashaw Ferguson SR OT Virginia
A franchise left tackle with amazing athleticism and nimble feet.
3. Matt Leinart SR QB Southern Cal
Doesn't have all the physical tools you look for but all he does is win.
4. Mario Williams JR DE North Carolina St.
Might ultimately be the best DE prospect since Julius Peppers in '02.
5. Vince Young JR QB Texas
Exciting and has all the potential in the world but is raw as a passer.
6. A.J. Hawk SR OLB Ohio St.
A standout who is seemingly all over the field and in on every play.
7. Vernon Davis JR TE Maryland
An amazing physical specimen with unheard of speed for the position.
8. Haloti Ngata JR DT Oregon
Has the type of size and athleticism that every pro team dreams of.
9. Michael Huff SR S Texas
Ballhawk in the secondary who projects to either S or CB in the pros.
10. DeAngelo Williams SR RB Memphis
Lacks elite size and speed but is a natural runner with great instincts.
11. Winston Justice JR OT Southern Cal
Still raw but a great athlete who could play either left or right tackle.
12. Brodrick Bunkley SR DT Florida St.
Could ultimately end up being a better prospect than Travis Johnson.
13. Chad Greenway SR OLB Iowa
Productive player who flies to the ball and has great intangibles.
14. Ernie Sims JR OLB Florida St.
Undersized but a great athlete who plays much bigger than he is.
15. Santonio Holmes JR WR Ohio St.
Polished WR who is a big play threat but also does the little things.
16. Jay Cutler SR QB Vanderbilt
Player on the rise who is easily the #2 senior signal caller available.
17. Jimmy Williams SR CB Virginia Tech
Former safety who has an ideal combo of size, speed and athleticism.
18. LenDale White JR RB Southern Cal
Gets overshadowed by Bush but he is a top prospect in his own right.
19. Chad Jackson SR WR Florida
Has all the physical tools to emerge in a weak class of receivers.
20. Antonio Cromartie JR CB Florida St.
Amazing athlete coming off a knee injury but has rare size and speed.
21. Eric Winston SR OT Miami (FL)
Might be a steal if he can regain the form he showed before the injury.
22. Leonard Pope JR TE Georgia
At 6-7 and 250 lbs. he is simply a matchup nightmare for defenses.
23. Tamba Hali SR DE Penn St.
Not the biggest or fastest pass rusher but has a non-stop motor.
24. Donte Whitner JR S Ohio St.
A great athlete who could play either safety position or even corner.
25. Tye Hill SR CB Clemson
Doesn't have ideal size but might be the fastest player in the draft.
26. Bobby Carpenter SR OLB Ohio St.
Has excellent size and speed and is also a tremendous pass rusher.
27. Gabe Watson SR DT Michigan
Has all the tools to be great but just doesn't always play up to them.
28. Mathias Kiwanuka SR DE Boston College
A tall, rangy sack artist with excellent athleticism and production.
29. Laurence Maroney JR RB Minnesota
Extremely productive and a threat to go the distance at any time.
30. Manny Lawson SR DE North Carolina St.
A physical freak who could be a prototypcial 3-4 outside linebacker.
31. Ko Simpson SO S South Carolina
Only played two years of college ball but he made the most of them.
32. Marcus McNeill SR OT Auburn
A great athlete who has all the tools to be a top tackle prospect
