Didnt read it though.. not an insider...
Predicting which end will be drafted first is made even more difficult than usual by the wide array of style, size and speed. LSU's Marcus Spears is the slowest of the first-round prospects, but he also is the biggest and best fit to play a hybrid role as a DE/DT "tweener" for the multitude of NFL teams that have moved exclusively to or are using a hybrid of the 3-4 scheme.
The other possibilities include Wisconsin's Erasmus James, Georgia's David Pollack and Oklahoma's Dan Cody. James, who had an explosive senior campaign, has a good combination of size and speed. However, he doesn't have elite speed, and durability issues make him a risk.
