It's ridiculously silly to do any sort of mock draft a year in advance, and that's not what this is. This is a ranking of the top D-I/FBS players eligible for the 2009 draft calling attention to the ones who'll get all the scrutiny this coming season.

While non-D-I players will certainly be entered into the mix and not all the eligible non-seniors will come out, this is a first look at who the best next-level prospects are and where they might project to go. Obviously this will all wildly change over the next 12 months, so don't start bothering these guys for a loan quite yet.
