If you are a Dolphins fan, you may as well just sign up. You'll be directed there more times than you could possibly imagine from this board.

Finheaven should be receiving some cash from those rags.. :yes:

I do not wish to get into trouble for copying an entire article so I "cut " to the bottom line on each guy... :wink:

from the Miami Herald;

CEDRIC BENSON

Running back

Texas, 5-10, 220 pounds

• The bottom line: While the Williams comparisons are a bit unfair (there is only one Ricky, right?), Benson does have character issues. More important, however, in the big-play oriented style of today's NFL, he might not be the perfect fit for a team drafting at No. 2 overall.

RONNIE BROWN

Running back Auburn, 6-0, 233

• The bottom line: Brown surpassed Benson to be considered the top running back available this year after the two posted their 40 times. The comparisons that scouts have made between Brown and San Diego's LaDainian Tomlinson are generous, but Brown's skills are excellent.

MIKE WILLIAMS

Wide reciever

Southern Cal, 6-4, 230

• The bottom line: At the very worst, Williams is going to be a great possession receiver in the NFL. As demonstrated in his final two years at USC (2002 and 2003, he didn't play this year when he lost his battle to join the NFL early) by scoring 30 combined touchdowns, Williams knows how to score.

AARON RODGERS

Quarterback

California, 6-2, 210
• The bottom line: If a team is looking for someone to play right away, Rodgers is the choice. There is a strong likelihood Rodgers will be selected by San Francisco with the No. 1 overall pick because of his readiness and the local angle. However, Rodgers may never be a star quarterback.

ALEX SMITH

Quarterback

Utah, 6-4, 208

• The bottom line: From a purely athletic standpoint, Smith projects as a better quarterback than Rodgers. But, again, that's projecting more than NFL teams like to do, particularly with quarterbacks. If Smith can't pick up subtle things, he could be a huge bust.

BRAYLON EDWARDS

Wide receiver

Michigan, 6-2, 209
• The bottom line: In the big-play world of the NFL, Edwards might be the best bet to have a huge impact among all of the top players in this year's draft. He is more than simply a complementary piece of an offense. He is capable of taking over a game.

DERRICK JOHNSON

Linebacker

Texas 6-3 242

• The bottom line: While Johnson is expected to go among the top 10 selections, whichever team takes him is probably going to be dissatisfied for at least a year or two. Johnson could be another example of why there is a growing trend away from taking linebackers so high in the draft.
