Oklahoma vs Stanford, December 31st, 2:00pm, CBS
Top NFL Draft Prospects for the Sun Bowl:
1. Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford (Pictured)
Just a big bruiser in the backfield that has nimble enough feet to carry the load in the NFL. Reminds us of a Shonn Greene with better vision. Shouldn’t last past the 2nd round.
2. Jeremy Beal, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
Due to his smaller size (260 lbs), Beal is probably a OLB conversion project at the next level. His speed and athleticism will tempt someone to snatch him up in the 2nd or 3rd round.
3. Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
Many 2010 NFL Mock Drafts have this Sooner in the top 20 if not the top 10. While he is a solid OT prospect, we don’t feel like he is even in the top 5 for tackles this year. Will probably be a 1st or early 2nd-round pick.
4. Chris Marinelli, OT, Stanford
Marinelli is a bit under the radar, but had a solid season blocking for the aforementioned Gerhart. Will be a 2nd-4th round pick in this year’s draft.
