As NFL scouts tour America's colleges this month, their calendars littered with pro days, the 2010 NFL Draft's top prospects seem to have already sorted themselves out through the moving and shaking of the pre-draft process.
Some of the biggest names—Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh, Oklahoma's Gerald McCoy and Tennessee's Eric Berry— have been atop draft boards from the get-go. Two quarterbacks—Oklahoma's Sam Bradford and Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen—crept their way steadily up mock drafts by virtue of positional value.
And Maryland tackle Bruce Campbell led a swarm of players who ran, jumped and lifted their way into teams' hearts at the scouting combine in Indianapolis last month.
With the draft's 10th overall pick, the Jacksonville Jaguars are well-placed to add one of this year's top prospects to their roster. For general manager Gene Smith, a firm believer in drafting for skill without being shackled by team needs, it's a menu of talent for his up-and-coming franchise.
What's on that menu, of course, depends on who's taken before the Jaguars go on the clock.
