Now that the 2010 NFL Draft has come and gone, we know who went where.
Now we can start putting expectations and comparisons to our favorite players.
After looking at some draft prospects, and by what teams they have been selected to, I found that some players may look and produce like some of our current NFL stars.
These guys are not ranked in any particular order, but it was just an observation of some players.
If you can think of some other rookies that can have similar characteristics please feel free to give a suggestion.
This one is an easy one.
C.J. Spiller will remind many people of the New Orleans Saints own Reggie Bush. The two have the same built and have the same explosiveness in the open field.
You can put Spiller in the backfield or even line him outside as a receiver. Spiller and Bush both have good hands, and they are dangerous home run threats every time they touch the ball.
Also expect Spiller to be the primary return guy with his enormous bursts of speed and agility.
This may be the first debate, but with the system that Jim McDermott has planned for Graham, he should be considered as an early candidate for defensive Rookie of the Year.
With his size and motor, he reminds me of Dwight Freeney of the Colts.
With Trent Coles on the other side, expect a double-digit sack season.
Dennis Pitta is another one to cause a debate.
With his good hands and ablities to run routes as a tight end, he has the chance to flurish in Cam Cameron's offense.
Pitta reminds us of the Colts TE Dallas Clark. They both possess the same traits coming out college and have similar builds.
Hopefully Joe Flacco can be his Payton Manning.
Here is one that many will see very soon.
FS Earl Thomas of the Seattle Seahawks will be the second coming of Balitmore Ravens FS Ed Reed.
This ball-hawking FS can do just about everything in the secondary. Thomas can also play corner, he is a true play-maker.
He can play center field, he can play man to man, he can cover the slot, and also can support the run.
He can do just about anything back there, just like Reed.
Here is a surpriser.
You didn't think he would be one, but Cleveland Browns fans, its time to be happy, because Carlton Mitchell is a late-round-gem.
With his size, speed, and hands he reminds me of, NO! Not Brandon Marshall but New Orleans Saints own Marques Colston.
With the offense that "The Big Show" has installed in Cleveland, he should be another nice fit along with QB Colt McCoy.
This is where the heat starts to turn up.
The San Diego Chargers, Ron Rivera, and John Pagano, have found themselves a stud at middle linebacker in Donald Butler.
Once he cracks the first team, and he will, Butler will remind you of a smaller Patrick Willis.
He will bring all of the same intangibles as Willis.
I'm not saying that he is Willis but he will surely remind people of him.
Just hook the plow on him and let him go.
Ben Tate will be the Texans' workhorse. He is a one cut and hit the hole kind of back that runs behind his pads.
Ben has good vision and decent hands to go along with his game. He will remind you of Kansas City Chiefs RB Thomas Jones.
Look for Tate to have a 1,000 yard season and don't be surprised if he reaches 1,500.
Wow, San Fransisco is beginning to look like San Diego.
With the tutelage of Mike Singletary, Mike Manusky, Jason Tarver, and Patrick Willis, you will see Navorro Bowman become a smaller Shawne Merriman.
He is instinctive, quick, and a good tackler. Look for him to have a good rookie season.
This one I had to make an exception on.
The reason being is because ironically Dekoda Watson and this player both played for the same college team and now they were both drafted by the same pro team.
Time will tell if they become the same player, but Watson will be a good one.
He reminds me of Tampa Bay's great OLB Derrick Brooks. Tampa Bay, you just had a reincarnation of a Buccaneers legend.
Look for him to be an all-pro in the near future.
I don't have much to say about Dexter McCluster, but DeShawn Jackson, I have to say that your 2.0 version has arrived and he can play running back!!!
