Perhaps no player in college football has done more for his stock in 2010 than Purdue defensive end Ryan Kerrigan. At Auburn, the biggest pro potential wasn't shown by the embattled Cam Newton. It was A.J. Green of Georgia.
Rodney Hudson might be only 283 pounds -- a smaller frame for a guard -- but he makes up for it with athleticism. Nevada has more than a solid QB, as Mel learns. And UNC's once-backups are showing they can fill in fine.
As the nation gears up for the return of college and pro football, Mel Kiper unveils the most NFL-ready prospect at every NCAA program. So while you know all about Jake Locker at Washington, you can discover Kevin Kowalski at Toledo.
Mel has ranked the Top 5 overall players at each position, among those who are draft-eligible in 2011, but here he ranks the remaining juniors at each position. This group could rise to the other board, or factor greatly into the 2012 draft.
Mel Kiper examines the rise of Sean Canfield, Ndamukong Suh's stunning performance, how C.J. Spiller did his best Chris Johnson impersonation and where Jimmy Clausen and Jake Locker will end up when this is all said and done.
