The article presents information on several college football players in the U.S. who are likely to join the National Football League. Percy Harvin can be compared to great selections of previous years like Derrick Williams, Adrian Peterson or Reggie Bush. Harvin is a speedy, physical wideout who will fit nicely into Florida coach Urban Meyer's spread option offense. Harvin and Tim Tebow are two of the reasons Florida will have the nation's No. 1 recruiting class. The deepest position this year is running back, with Chris Wells of Ohio State University, James Aldridge of Notre Dame University and Mike Ford of Alabama University all five-star recruits.
