    newton will certainly be a starter, i think hes gonna be successful as long as hes got the right coaches around him...hes like jamarcus and young tied into one, i do think he'll be better than both of them and even if hes never great im sure he'll show flashes of greatness.

    hes really not THAT much unlike roethlisberger, just got a little more straight line speed

    Nobody thought of Marcel Dareus? I would take Peterson, too. I thought somebody would be pulling for a big man.

    roethlisberger. way more polished, a D1 starter for 3 years

    he came out in a stacked year with eli and rivers getting most of the press, but both he and newton are about the same size, have a knack for their ability to escape, and have a winners mentality and on the field leadership. on the field their team mates would do anything for them cause they bring that kind of presence to the game. might not be the best role model for kids, but team mates would take a bullet for them when gametime comes.

    ben however was much more polished being a 3 year starter in the MAC conference, not that the competition int he MAC is great but he was a man among boys and dominated (similar to newton in junior college)

    the thing ben and newton have against them as prospects is footwork, but ben was much better throwing on the run outside of the pocket and his touch was better...the thing that really separates ben is his ability to go through his progressions, by all means as a rookie it was 1, 2, and throw...newtons with probably be 1, maybe 2 and run which isnt a good way to develop him because hes too big to be a "running QB" it just wont work like it did in college.

    if anyone is this years tebow, its kaepernick imo

    dareus looks the part of a big DT but he plays like a DE in that hes not overpowering at the point of attack and wont sustain blockers, he'll try to get around you which looks funny but he is athletic enough to do it...i like him as a distruptive DT in a 43 much more than a disciplined DE in a 34

    it would go peterson...pro bowl corner or hall of fame FS...ill take either, after that it would go julio jones, aj green, robert quinn, von miller, dareus

    ok but kaepenick isnt a 1st rounder you might be right about newton but i just get the feeling he wont do so well i think if ben was drafted to a team like carolina or a losing team he would have struggled more

    yeah...tebow wasnt a first rounder either lol, imo he was a 5th round talent...i would have drafted troy smith over tebow.

    kaepernick is a high second rounder, and might sneak into the first

    I know there is no way we will trade all the way up into the top 10, but once peterson and Amukumara are off the board, how far up would you trade for a CB or Pouncey?
