There will no doubt be surprises this year, as the draft is deep. Some rookies will rise and some will take the inevitable plunge of doom into the late first round/second round range.
This year's class of rookies promises to be one of the best draft day classes ever because of a possible uncapped season in 2010 combined with the revolving idea that there may well be an NFL rookie salary cap in 2011.
Another contributing factor to the outstanding rookie class is that many of last year's junior stars decided to return to their respective schools for their senior seasons.
I'm all about it. There will be first round talent in the second round this year, second round talent in the fourth, and I'm loving every minute of it.
There are needs-galore for a team that has been known lately for their losing ways and lost much of the respect they had gained during a time which they were the most winningest team in the NFL, a period that lasted about 30 years, back when they were a proud franchise.
One thing is for sure: It will be hard to flop with the first round choice this year. Almost every player on the board has a good-looking future in the NFL.
