10 – Darris Sawtelle – OT – Birmingham Brother Rice (6'5, 285)
Sawtelle is a good sized blocker who should grow into a right tackle. Though he was recruited hard in-state, he had ties to Rocky Top which resulted in his commitment to Tennessee.
9 – Keith Nichol – QB – Lowell (6'2, 175)
Nichol is an excellent run-pass threat. He has a good feel for the game as well but will need to prove he has the arm strength to be effective at the next level. If there is a place for him to succeed though, it is the wide open spread attack he'll be playing in at Oklahoma.
8 – Cedric Everson – CB – Detroit Mumford (5'11, 178)
Everson is a jet fast cover corner and dangerous return man. He will need to stay disciplined and work on technique, but in terms of raw talent, he's one of the top players in the state. He'll have a chance to be a future starter at Iowa.
7 – Chris Colasanti – ILB – Birmigham Brother Rice (6'2, 230)
A classic middle linebacker, Colasanti is always around the ball and rarely misses a tackle. Very fitting then that he is off to linebacker U, Penn State.
6 – Ryan Van Bergen – DE – Whitehall (6'5, 265)
Van Bergen did not have as productive of a senior season as his junior season and summer camp performances would have indicated, but that was largely due to the double teams he faced all season long. He is a high motor guy with great feet for a big man. Michigan could play him at either end or tackle.
5 - Martell Webb – WR/TE – Pontiac Northern (6'5, 220)
As a raw talent, Webb has as much upside as anyone in this class. He has speed, strength and playmaking ability. He will have to make the adjustment from a split end into a tight end though.
4 – Joseph Barksdale – DT – Detroit Cass Tech (6'5, 315)
Barksdale has incredible quickness and agility for a big man. He is a load in the middle and if he simply improves technique and goes hard every down, he could be a college All-American. He'll follow a long line of great interior linemen at LSU.
3 - Steven Threet – QB – Adrian (6'5, 220)
I was blown away seeing Threet in person this year. He has outstanding accuracy and size and he could see the field sooner rather than later at Georgia Tech.
2 – Dionte Allen – CB – Orchard Lake St. Mary's (5'11, 175)
Allen doesn't have the great makeup speed some of the other corners in this class has, but he is a wonderful athlete with the agility and technique to stick to receivers and the willingness to come up and tackle. He is one of the best run support corners in the Midwest. He is off to Florida State.
1 – Ronald Johnson – CB/WR – Muskegon (6'0, 185)
Speed, elusiveness, playmaking. RoJo has it all and can do it as a corner, receiver or return man. He'll get his chance to find his spot at USC, where they've turned versatile athletes like Johnson into stars before. If he stays at corner, he will have to improve technically, but he has the raw tools to be a star.
