2013 NFL Draft: Top 5 at Each Position

At NBC, I published my top five players at each position.

QB

1 Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
3 Matt Barkley, QB, USC
4 Matt Scott, QB, Arizona
5 Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma

Analysis: I really don’t like Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib, who many have predicted could be a top 10 pick. Actually, I don’t even have him in my top 80 prospects. Manuel, who recently moved into my top 30 overall, could have the highest ceiling of the bunch.
RB

4 Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama

Analysis: Since I last posted my rankings, I moved Michael into the No. 1 spot over Franklin. I really like both players, but Michael has an elite size/speed combination.
And I published this comparison a few weeks ago, but it’s worth repeating:
Zac Stacy: 5-9, 216 pounds, 3,143 yards, 5.4 YPC, 4.55 40-yard dash, 6.70 three-cone drill, 4.17 short shuttle, 27 reps
Player X: 5-9, 215 pounds, 3,431 yards, 5.6 YPC, 4.55 40-yard dash, 6.79 three-cone drill, 4.16 short shuttle, 28 reps
“Player X” is Doug Martin.
WR

4 Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
5 Keenan Allen, WR, Cal

Analysis: I’ve had Hopkins rated as my No. 1 wide receiver for a little while, but he’s now my No. 13 overall prospect. I also moved Rogers up to No. 3 because he’s basically a Brandon Marshall clone. His future will hinge on his ability to stay out of trouble.
