The article presents information related to various college football players. Maryland's Vernon Davis may be one of the best athletes at any position in the draft. UCLA player Maurice Drew is quick and elusive, but he has a bit of an east-west running style and lacks the bulk to be an inside runner. Florida's Chad Jackson is a solid route runner with good speed and steady hands. In addition to being a solid blocker in the running game, Georgia's Leonard Pope provides a big target in the red zone.
