The CFN Top 250 players for the 2010 NFL Draft. Please note, this isn't a prediction or a projection of where the prospects will go. Instead, it's a ranking based on apparent talent, safety, risk, and the potential to be a bona fide NFL starter. These are the best 250 prospects regardless of position.

161. WR Andre Roberts, Citadel 5-11, 195
Post-Combine Skinny: One of the interesting prospects everyone wanted a look at, he didn't disappoint and is now on the radar after running a 4.46 and looking quick and fluid in all the drills. He's not all that big, but he's such an excellent athlete that he's going to be a possible fourth rounder with a little luck.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 25
Positives: Extremely productive. Caught nine passes for 153 yards and a score against Clemson and caught ten passes against North Carolina. … Fast and quick. Can get out of his breaks in a hurry and he could become a dangerous deep threat. … Phenomenal in the open field. Could be a devastating No. 3.
Negatives: Small. He isn’t going to go up and get the ball. … Not physical and will be erased by stronger defensive backs. … Had his moments against FBS teams in blowouts, but he mostly dominated against bad teams.

162. OT Ciron Black, LSU 6-4, 327
Post-Combine Skinny: Disastrous is a bit too strong a word, but he didn't show up. He's a guard after showing now athleticism, no quickness, and only coming up with 23 reps on the bench. He didn't look smooth in any way.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 13
Positives: A long-time starter at a high level. He was a top tackle for an elite team for four years. … A mauler. In a draft full of technicians, he’s the physical dominator. … A decent pass protector. Good enough to get a shot on the left side.
Negatives: Not an athlete. He might make his money as a guard if he doesn’t work out on the outside. . … Keeping weight in check. He has it down now but could quickly balloon if he’s not careful. … More of a reputation player than production. Didn’t progress into an all-timer.

163. OG Sergio Render, Virginia Tech
Not Invited To The Combine

164. OT/OG Zane Beadles, Utah  6-4, 310
Post-Combine Skinny: He's a guard. He measured well but he didn't work out. After an awful Senior Bowl, he might get a look at right tackle, but he'll move inside.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 9
Positives: Very experienced and very productive. Was the key blocker for a strong Utah offense for a long time. … Versatile. Could end up playing guard if needed. … Tremendous motor. Finishes off his blocks well.
Negatives: Was a disaster at the Senior Bowl. Didn’t look like he belonged. … Might have to be a guard. He’s just not athletic enough to handle NFL speed rushers. … Might struggle going from a spread attack to an NFL offense.

165. OG Mitch Petrus, Arkansas 6-3, 310
Post-Combine Skinny: Seriously strong. There were some impressive moments at the Combine, but the 45 reps on the bench was one of the best. The former tight end moved like it and was able to look just quick enough to get the meter moving after the show he put on in the weight room.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 8
Positives: Had an interesting career being used at fullback and lining up for a time as a big tight end. … A great athlete for a guard. Perfect for a zone-blocking scheme. … Good at getting on the move. Can pull effortlessly.
Negatives: Not a killer run blocker. Isn’t going to do much in a power offense. … Still a work in progress at guard. Scratching the surface but isn’t a sure-thing. … Needs technique work at guard.

166. DE Jason Worilds, Virginia Tech 6-1, 254
Post-Combine Skinny: The concern was that he was going to measure smaller than expected, and while he wasn't tiny, the 6-1 height and 254 pounds will limit his positions and options. The 4.72 40 didn't help, but he worked well through the shuttle and cone drills and was quick enough to have a shot at working as a 3-4 linebacker.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 7
Positives: A nice athlete with a high motor. A former linebacker, he could play OLB in a 3-4 or be a pass rushing specialist in a 4-3. … Fights hard. Doesn’t back down against bigger blockers. … Extremely productive even when keyed on.
Negatives: Small. Not big enough to be a regular defensive end and won’t last. Durability concerns. … Needs more moves. Not a variety of bells and whistles to his pass rushing ability. … Not necessarily an NFL linebacker. Was used mostly as an end.

167. DE Lindsey Witten, Connecticut 6-4, 250
Post-Combine Skinny: Unless he hits the weights harder, he's an outside linebacker without the bulk. For a player with his lack of size, the 4.71 40 was painful, but he showed some explosion with a 36.5" vertical.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 8
Positives: Grew into a solid pass rusher. Great attitude and made himself into a playmaker. … Strong for his size. Should be able to hold up well and be more than just a pass rusher. … Tall with room to add more bulk. He’ll eventually play at around 265 and won’t lose a thing.
Negatives: Not necessarily a special athlete. Quick, but not a speedster considering his lack of bulk. … Limited upside. He could get better, but there’s a hard ceiling. … Doesn’t cut well enough. Fine, but doesn’t have the moves to blow past the more athletic offensive tackles.

168. ILB Ryan Stamper, Florida
Not Invited To The Combine

169. OG Marshall Newhouse, TCU 6-4, 319
Post-Combine Skinny: He proved that he'll be a guard at the next level, but an athletic one. However, he also solidified his place as a tweener without the strength to be a dominant guard and without the feet to move to tackle.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 9
Positives: A terrific anchor for a great TCU line. Experienced and versatile. … Can work well both at tackle and guard. Just solid enough to stick on a roster as a back up for several spots. … Durable and reliable. A mainstay for four years.
Negatives: A tweener. Not quick enough to be a regular tackle and not tough enough to be a top guard. … Pass protection will be a major concern no matter where he plays. … Could stand to be more of a killer. Not enough of a nasty, bury-the-man streak.

170. DE Willie Young, NC State 6-5, 251
Post-Combine Skinny: Measured tall with a frame to get far bigger and add more bulk, but he's going to likely see most work as an OLB. While the 38" vertical showed some pop in his legs, and he moved well for his height, the 4.82 40 was a deal-breaker. He's just not athletic enough for his size.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 9
Positives: Can play in any scheme. A good enough athlete to be an OLB and strong enough to be an end in a 4-3. … Was better than he got credit for at NC State. A good producer. … Has the frame to get bigger. Could easily add 10-to-15 pounds without a problem.
Negatives: Needs to get bigger. He hasn’t reached his potential yet and isn’t a finished product. Could be a chancy pick. … Not consistent. Good for stretches but disappears for too long. … Might be a jack-of-all-trades, master of none. Has to find one thing he does well at an NFL level.

171. DE/OLB George Selvie, South Florida 6-3, 252
Post-Combine Skinny: 4.89. For a supposed speed rusher with the size of an outside linebacker, a 4.89 40 was devastating. While he moved fluidly and he had few problems in the basic drills, the lack of foot speed cost him some money. On the plus side, the 24 reps on the bench weren't all that bad.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 10
Positives: A superior pass rusher. Has tremendous speed and quickness when he gets around the corner. A fantastic closer. … Great in space and great on the move. At his best as a run defender when the play is away from him. ... Ready to roll as a pass rusher. Could be a better pro than collegian.
Negatives: Not big. Not quite bulky enough to be a sure-thing in a 4-3. … Is he an OLB in a 3-4? He might have to be a player a defense finds a job for. … Can be erased by a bigger, stronger lineman. Disappeared a bit too much last year.

172. OG Shawn Lauvao, Arizona State 6-2, 315
Post-Combine Skinny: Mega-strong. The 33 reps on the bench and the surprising quickness around the agility drills might have shot him up the charts. He showed more than enough athleticism to hold his own with any inside pass rusher.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 10
Positives: The only positive on an awful ASU line over the last few years. A leader and a fantastic worker. Will bust his tail. … A big hitter who isn’t afraid to get physical. Insane strong. … Athletic for a guard prospect. Quick on his feet.
Negatives: Not a tackle and not quite bulky enough to be an NFL guard. … No room to move or grow. He has maxed out his physical capabilities. … Not tall and has short arms. Can only work inside.

173. OG Shelley Smith, Colorado State 6-3, 300
Post-Combine Skinny: Considered an athletic guard prospect before, he created a stir by blowing away everyone with a 9'4" broad jump. The 5.11 40 only helped his cause further, but he still needs to bulk up and proved that he might only be good on the move.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 13
Positives: Great on the move. Has great feet and runs well for his size. … Just athletic enough to get a look at tackle. Could be versatile enough to make a roster as a fill-in for several spots. … The one the Rams ran behind on every key down.
Negatives: Not nearly big enough. No bulk. Built like a tackle but isn’t an NFL tackle. … Not NFL physical. More of a finesse blocker. … Banged up at times last year and will have problems staying healthy because of his size.

174. C John Estes, Hawaii
Not Invited To The Combine 

175. WR Riley Cooper, Florida 6-3, 222
Post-Combine Skinny: An interesting prospect who proved to have the right blend of talents. For a big player, he was fluid and smooth like a smaller player, and the 4.52 40 was strong for him.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 19
Positives: Excellent mix of size and speed. Has the potential to be the type of player who can be sent deep and asked to make something happen. … Fearless. Will do whatever it takes to make a play. … A willing blocker who’s good at keeping a defender engaged down the field.
Negatives: Athleticism doesn’t necessarily translate to football. More fast than quick. … Baseball could be a problem. If football isn’t working out in any way, he could be gone. He’s an outfielder in the Texas Ranger system. … A product of the spread and didn’t come up big until his final year.

176. WR Scott Long, Louisville 6-2, 216
Post-Combine Skinny: Showed what he needed to. Knocked down a few pegs because of his broken foot, he came out roaring with a 4.46 in the 40, an amazing 20 reps on the bench, and he blew up the short drills with some of the quickest times of anyone in the Combine. Had he had a bigger name, this would be the workout that would've made the scout go ballistic. He moved up big-time.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: Not Ranked
Positives: Great size and decent speed. Good quickness on short to midrange routes. … Could grow into a whale of a possession receiver with a little time. Patience could pay off. … Good hands. Soft catcher.
Negatives: Good speed, not great speed. He won’t blow by any NFL corners. … Broken foot in the past a concern.

177. TE Nate Byham, Pitt 6-4, 268
Post-Combine Skinny: His job in Indy wasn't to be a great athlete it was to be strong. He didn't lift, and he wasn't athletic in any way. However, there's no questioning his blocking ability, and he'll have to hit someone to make up for the lack of mobility.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 9
Positives: Blocking. He’s arguably the best run blocking tight end in the draft. … Decent enough hands to be counted on when needed. … A better route runner than he’ll get credit for.
Negatives: Not a great athlete. He’s limited to being a blocker and a short-range target. … Wasn’t used enough as a receiver and will rarely get passes his way at the next level. … Not going to be quick off the line and doesn’t cut well.

178. DE C.J. Wilson, East Carolina 6-3, 290
Post-Combine Skinny: Huge. The 290 pounds will assure him of a 3-4 end and could be used as a tackle if desperately needed. The 4.83 40 showed off decent speed for a player of his size, but the biggest key to the workout was the impressive 32 reps. He made himself a lot of money with some of the most versatile raw skills of any lineman in the draft.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 13
Positives: Good size and should be strong as a 3-4 end. … Athletic for his size. Moves well in pursuit. … Always on the move. Never stops working.
Negatives: Not a top pass rusher. Won’t do too much to get to the quarterback at the next level. … Might not be quick enough to be an end in a 4-3 and isn’t strong enough to be a tackle. … Not totally polished. Needs technique work.

179. DE Jermaine Cunningham, Florida (OLB) 6-3, 266
Post-Combine Skinny: The Pro Day will mean everything to his stock after not running or lifting. Considered a bit of a tweener, the 6-3, 266-pound size will help give him options. The measurements confirm that he's able to work on the end with a little more weight.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 11
Positives: Makes plays. Works his way into making something happen. … Tough. Holds up well and fights though bumps and bruises. … Good motor. Has the athleticism and the want-to to play as a DE or an OLB.
Negatives: Sort of a tweener. Not a sure thing as a DE or an OLB. … Battles well and tries hard, but isn’t always physical enough. … Was helped by having a ton of great players around him.

180. OG Cord Howard, Georgia Tech
Not Invited To The Combine

181. WR David Gettis, Baylor 6-3, 217
Post-Combine Skinny: He measured as big as expected, the 6-3, 217-pound size showed just how big he really is, and he was supposed to be fast. 4.47 is more than good enough, and the 10'4" explosion in the broad jump was among the best among the receivers. The raw skills are too good to not use a draft pick on.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 37
Positives: Very big and very fast. The raw skills are there to be an NFL prototype. … When he kicks it into gear, he’s gone. … Does a decent job of using his size well and can’t be handled by smallish corners.
Negatives: Not a pass catcher. Doesn’t have great hands. … Didn’t always stand out. Baylor didn’t always throw well, if at all, but he still wasn’t always a difference-maker. … Takes a while to get up to speed. He has another gear, but he’s not a sudden runner.

182. OT Jason Fox, Miami 6-7, 303
Post-Combine Skinny: An interesting prospect who didn't do much to show off. He didn't run, only lifted 23 times, and didn't do anything to show off. However, he measured long and has upside because of his frame.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 14
Positives: A good athlete with the frame to get bigger. Great in space. … Will get a look on the left side but will be an athletic right tackle. … When he has a lock on a defender, it’s over. A nasty blocker.
Negatives: Coming off a knee injury. Might not be ready to be his full self right away. … He has to add weight to his frame. Has to get up to 325 to be more effective. … Not going to be a left tackle. Not quick enough off the ball.

183. DE Daniel Te’o Nesheim, Washington 6-3, 263
Post-Combine Skinny: Looks like a linebacker instead of an end. He was smooth when running and lifted well with 29 reps, to go along with a 4.76 40, but he made his most money in the cone and shuttle drills blazing around like a speed rusher. Someone will see something big out of this workout.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 23
Positives: Great leader and producer even when seasons turned sour. … Doesn’t take a play off. Always working and always trying to make something happen. … Hung tough even when he was a one-man gang at times up front.
Negatives: Not big enough to be a regular lineman and not athletic enough to even be considered as a linebacker. … A try-hard type with a hard ceiling. … Needs to get stronger at the point of attack. Could be run over.

184. CB Walter Thurmond, Oregon 5-11, 189
Post-Combine Skinny: He didn't run the 40 and he didn't lift as he's still trying to get past his knee injury. He had a good wingspan and decent overall size, though.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 18
Positives: Good size and a nice burst. A strong athlete. … Always around the ball. A ball-hawk and a playmaker. … A willing run defender. Not afraid to get dirty and make the tough play.
Negatives: His knee. He’d be rated much higher if he didn’t suffer a bad knee injury. … Wants to be physical but will be shoved around a bit. … A great worker and a baller, but might have a hard ceiling.

185. DE Clifton Geathers, South Carolina (DT) 6-7, 299
Post-Combine Skinny: He ran a painfully slow 4.96, but that was about the only unimpressive aspect of the raw talent. He's long, really, really long with almost 38" long arms and 11" hands. He jumped well, moved well enough, and showed the upside to get some coach really, really excited.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 24
Positives: Fascinating mix of skills. Unlimited potential and upside with great size and good quickness. … Strong against the run. Can move to tackle or be a 3-4 end. … Very long. Tough to run around.
Negatives: Never played up to his potential in college. The classic looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane. … Needs a ton of technique work. Got by on his physical skills. … A project who needs time and a coach willing to do some butt-kicking.

186. WR Chris Bell, Norfolk State 6-2, 211
Post-Combine Skinny: The scouts wanted to see if he had the speed to match the size, and he was terrific blazing away with a 4.47 while also flying through the agility drills. He looked the part of an NFL receivers, and the previous, preconceived knock of no NFL deep speed is now gone.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 29
Positives: Good size. He’s able to outmuscle his way to the ball and finds his way to the end zone. … Consistent. He was excellent at coming up with a big play every game. … Decent enough speed to get by.
Negatives: Character issues. He was fine at NSU after getting booted out of Penn State following an incident with a knife. … A one-year producer. He’s leaving school early for the next level. … A producer at the lover level, but he has to prove he can do it against top corners..

187. WR Naaman Roosevelt, Buffalo
Not Invited To The Combine

188. CB Crezdon Butler, Clemson 6-0, 191
Post-Combine Skinny: Fast, fast, fast. He blazed away to a 4.41 and rocked on the vertical with a vertical leap of 39.5", and he looked the part of a smooth, fluid corner. The 17 reps on the bench also helped him out. The workout wasn't enough to overcome his technique, but it was a fantastic Combine that will help him.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 21
Positives: A terrific athlete who moves fluidly. … A big corner who plays bigger with a great vertical. Can jump out of the stadium. … Has the overall look. Has good skills to work with.
Negatives: Not a natural at the corner. Fights his technique to make plays. … Not tough. Doesn’t tackle up to his size. … Can be pushed around too easily.

189. DE/LB Rahim Alem, LSU 6-3, 251
Post-Combine Skinny: Okay, not great, and the workout confirmed his tweener position. He ran well with a decent 4.75 and he moved around with good balance and looked the part, but he didn't lift and he seems a bit too rangy to be an every down end.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 15
Positives: Worked his way into becoming a player. Not the typical sure-thing LSU athlete. … Doesn’t miss a tackle. Eats up everything that comes his way. … A nice pass rusher. Could be used as a specialist.
Negatives: Doesn’t have an NFL position. Too small to be an end and not quick enough to be a linebacker. … Forget about it against an NFL-caliber tackle. He’ll get erased. … Motor has to be even higher to become a regular player. He might have to be a specialist.

190. C Ted Larsen, NC State 6-2, 304
Post-Combine Skinny: The 25 reps were fine, but hardly special. He moved around well and jumped with some pop. It was a better Combine than a Senior Bowl and he's back on the radar.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 5
Positives: A former defensive tackle and brings the same sort of defensive intensity. … Can move to guard if needed. Strong despite not being all that huge. … Moves well. Is great at getting out and making things happen down the field.
Negatives: Inconsistent in offseason practices. Fine, but not special. … Not really a guard. If he’s not a center, he’s not playing his best position. … Needs better reaction and reads for a center.

191. WR Chris McGaha, Arizona State 6-1, 201
Post-Combine Skinny: In the crazy scouting world of things that are strangely important, McGaha had some of the biggest hands among the receivers. He flashed an excellent combination of raw skills. It was a stunningly great Combine for him.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 32
Positives: Productive. Quietly put together a really nice career. … Reliable and doesn’t make mistakes. Crisp route runner. … Knows how to get open. Always seems to find the holes and always seems to come up with the big play when needed.
Negatives: Limited. There’s a hard ceiling on his upside. … Not fast, not huge, and doesn’t have any special skills. … Will have to find a niche on a good passing team with several other good options.

192. OT Chris Scott, Tennessee 6-4, 319
Post-Combine Skinny: Uh oh. He didn't move well, he didn't jump with any pop, and the 19 reps on the bench were lousy. He might have to move to guard after not moving well enough to be an NFL tackle.
Pre-Combine Position Rank: 15
Positives: Eats up defenders when he locks on. A mauler. … A solid veteran who produced at a high level in the SEC. … Has the body type and the ability to be a star guard.
Negatives: Not a left tackle and will have to work to be a right tackle. … Not an elite athlete and not natural on the move. … Needs technique work. For all his experience he’s still needs coaching.
