Rutgers moves towards the 2011 season with a lot of potential on the field and in NFL war rooms next April.  The top prospects from the program reside in the ranks of the underclassmen and we expect a few to jump to the NFL.  The future is not as bright at USF as Skip Holtz enters his second season.

2-3Mohamed SanuWR63JrStrong, sure handed possession receiver that does the little things well and consistently comes away with positive plays. Lacks the deep speed yet comes away with the ball in battles. Sources have told us Sanu is expected to enter the draft at the end of the season.
3-4Steve BeauharnaisILB423Jrterrific linebacker prospect that can be used in the middle or on the outside. Quick, fast and strong. Needs to improve his play in coverage yet offers a good amount of upside and can play in a variety of systems.
3-4Khaseem GreeneS204JrAthletic deep centerfielder that goes sideline to sideline. Strong against the run and flashes skill against the pass. Possesses outstanding size.
4thMark HarrisonWR813JrBig, possession receiver that easily wins out in battles. Has a developing game and the ability to turn into a solid third or possibly second receiver at the next level.
6thScott ValloneDT944JrHard-working, interior lineman that plays hard until whistle blows. Offers size and adequate strength. Not a premier athlete yet gets the most from his abilities and does an outstanding job.
6thArt ForstG774SrVersatile lineman that can play tackle or guard. Fundamentally sound, strong and a solid run blocker best in confined quarters. Lacks great upside yet very much a “get what you see” type player that consistently gets the job done.
6-7D.C. JeffersonTE104JrAthletic tight and prospect with a good amount of upside. Catches the ball well and blocks with solid fundamentals but must improve his playing strength.
7thDesmond WynnG705SrAthletic offensive line prospect highly thought of in scouting circles. Really needs to improve his balance and pull together a complete game yet has a large upside.
FAJustin` FrancisDE915Sr
FADavid RoweCB44SrAthletic cornerback that flashes skill. Really best facing the action in a zone system.
FAManny AbreuOLB515SrLinebacker prospect we thought highly of in 2009 but a player coming off a very disappointing junior campaign. Has an upside but must get his game back on track.
