Quick notes:
-Of the draft eligible QBs, I'm interested to see what will be the largest factor in the draft order. Ryan Mallett and Cameron Newton both will have lengthy interview processes, but they both have tremendous upside. Newton, if properly coached in the right system, could flourish because of his athletic ability. Don't write him off as Jamarcus Russell's or Vince Young's clone yet.
-I think Mark Ingram and John Clay will have a battle to be the top RB taken.
-Prince Amukamara will have his hands full if he wants to fend off Patrick Peterson from being the top DB taken.
