Now that we know who definitely declared for the draft, the post season all star games and the scouting combine are over, here is the current list of the top prospects at all the positions. * Denotes a player either coming off of a serious injury, or considered a injury risk, and that definitely affects how they are ranked currently.Right next to them is the NFL player player I think they most resemble if they are a hit. Players are only listed if we think they are possibly worthy of going in the first 5 rounds. Fullbacks don't have their own category as it is a dying position. Any worthy players three will be with the RB's or TE /H-backs. If a player is listed at multiple positions its where we rank them at that position only.

QB'S- A position in this draft long on potential with no finished products or player with top 10 talent ready to play now, but 2 are likely to go in the top 10 anyway. On the whole the most athletically gifted and mobile QB class I've seen, but when Andrew Luck went back to school this position lost it's only ready to go blue chipper. 7 of the teams picking in the top 10 are in need of a QB. Chances are some will trade back into the bottom of the first round to take 1.

1. Blaine Gabbert- QB- Missouri- NFL Comp-Joe Flacco-Balt.
2. Cam Newton- QB- Auburn-NFL Comp-Donovan McNabb-WASH
3. Ryan Mallet- QB- ARK- NFL Comp- Drew Bledsoe-RET.
4. Christian Ponder-QB-FLA ST. -NFL Comp- Drew Brees-NO
5. Colin Kaepernick-QB-Nevada-NFL Comp-Randall Cunningham-RET.
6. Andy Dalton-QB- TCU-NFL COMP- Matt Hasselbeck-SEA
7. Jake Locker-QB- WASH- NFL Comp- Carson Palmer-CINC
8. Ricki Stanzi-QB-IOWA-NFL COMP-Matt Schaub-HOU
9. Tyrod Taylor-NFL COMP- MIchael Vick-PHIL

RB'S- There is no Adrian Peterson freak of nature for sure top 5 back here, but there is a lot of strong runners and situational guys. You need at least 2 if not 3 RB's these days in a rotation .There is a good chance only 1 might come off the board in the 1rst round, but between 6-10 could go in the first 3 rounds.

1.* Mark Ingram-RB- ALA- NFL Comp- Emmitt Smith-RET.
2. Mikel Leshoure-RB-ILL.-NFL Comp- Steven Jackson-STL
3.*Ryan Williams- RB- Va. Tech.-NFL Comp-Curtis Martin-RET.

10..Allen Bradford-RB-USC -NFL Comp-Michael Turner-ATL.
11. Jordan Todman-RB-CT-NFL COMP-Deangelo Williams-CAR-
12. Stanley Havili-RB-USC- Matt Forte-CHI

20. Steven Ridley-RB-LSU-NFL COMP-Shonn Greene-JETS

WR's-A deep position with 2 possible top 10 guys this year. The spread offenses in college and limted route trees they have make many of the 3rd day guys projects.

3. Randall Cobb-WR-KY-NFL Comp-Hines Ward-PITT
