TOP 10 UNDERCLASSMEN:
1. Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma: Would be the top defender selected in many drafts; Nebraska senior DT Ndamukong Suh is the only player keeping him from that title this year.
2. Eric Berry, CB/FS, Tennessee: Versatile player who could play either safety spot or cornerback, wherever the team chooses to use his playmaking skills.
3. Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma: If healthy throwing before the draft, teams may look at his accuracy and put him at the top of this list.
4. Joe Haden, CB, Florida: Fantastic athlete and tough competitor who makes plays despite still learning the technique of the position.
5. Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame: Clausen's competitive nature and accuracy will overcome his lack of height (just ask Drew Brees) and other holes in his game.
6. Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State: Looked like an NFL receiver before his suspension for lying to NCAA investigators.
7. Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech: Brings everything a team wants in a strong-side pass rusher: size, speed and toughness.
8. Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama: One of the smartest players in the country in terms of knowing where to be on the field - and a heck of an athlete for his size.
9. Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame: Should remind scouts of Carolina's Pro Bowl WR Steve Smith, who didn't stand tall against the measuring tape but does on the field.
10. Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida: A great physical specimen at 6-6, 290, Dunlap could be higher on this list if he played every down with authority.
