Lynch over Peterson on Draft Day
The Cal junior has compiled over 1400 total yards, 9 TDs, and sports a 6.3 ypc average. Lynch is the perfect size for a RB at 5-11 and 215 lbs. He's a good interior runner and can break tackles, yet has the elusiveness to make people miss, and the speed to outrun defenders. He also has the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and make big plays in the passing game.
Peterson is faster and taller then Lynch, but hasn't been able to stay healthy. Some scouts are worried that with his long frame, Peterson runs upright and opens his body up for punishment and injury. The junior also hasn't been involved in the passing game at Oklahoma and doesn't have the receiving skill that Lynch does.
Their final draft order won't be decided till draft day and a lot will be determined during post-season workouts, but there is now a possibility that Peterson won't be the first RB off the board during the 2007 NFL draft.

Reggie Nelson's Mom Says He's Headed to the NFL
Notre Dame - USC Prospects to Watch
Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame
Quinn is the prototypical pocket passer. He has great size, along with the strength and willingness to sit in the pocket and deliver a strike. He has very good arm strength, and can make all the throws on the field.
Chauncey Washington, RB, USC, Jr.
Washington has the all around package to be a standout running back. He has excellent size and power, but also has the speed and agility to run away from defenders.
Dwayne Jarrett, WR, USC, Jr.
There isn’t a player in the country that can go up and get the ball like Jarrett does. He shows the ability to make the tough grab over the middle and take a hit, but he makes a living in the red zone or as a vertical target.
Steve Smith, WR, USC
Steve Smith may not be spectacular in any way, but he is solid across the board. He has solid size, and is not afraid to go over the middle and make plays. He has the quickness to beat the corner off the line, and the speed to get vertical and make plays.
Ryan Kalil, C, USC
He is as smart and tough as they come on the field, and he will attack defensive linemen considerably bigger than him. He sets up quickly and has the quick hands and feet to keep his man at bay.
Victor Abiamiri, DE, Notre Dame
Physically, Abiamiri has it all. He is a great athlete, showing great agility, quickness, and speed on the football field. He has a very lean frame, and is strong for a player his size. He brings a lot of talent and potential as a playmaker off the edge.
Lawrence Jackson, DE, USC, Jr.
He gets a quick burst off the line, and is quick changing directions to get past the tackle. Jackson also shows the closing speed to get to the ball carrier and bring him down. Lawrence Jackson is a very good defensive end prospect, but he is not an elite one.
Tom Zbikowski, S, Notre Dame
Zbikowski is aggressive and tough. He loves attacking the line of scrimmage to stop the run, but has fantastic ball skills to go along with it. Zbikowski is also an excellent returner, and it only enhances his value as a football player.

While he lacks great speed he shows a quick burst through the line and has excellent hands, currently leading the Bulldogs with 26 receptions.
