Spiller makes list of projected successes

In the wake of the draft there are grades, reviews and assessments of each NFL team’s draft class. There are also projections as to which team landed instant impact type players. Scout.com did such a projection and Buffalo’s top pick is at the head of the list.

Here is Scout.com’s ‘most-likely-to-succeed’ list of 2010 draft choices.

Bills RB C.J. Spiller: Smart, proud, fast and versatile, the former Clemson star will hit the ground running and will leave plenty of defenders frustrated and weary.
Lions DT Ndamukong Suh: He may not make as much noise as people anticipate during his rookie year, but the determined warrior will be a dominant player once he adds pro technique to his strength and instincts.
Falcons LB Sean Weatherspoon: A natural leader who has an unbridled enthusiasm for the game, Weatherspoon has the range and skill set to become a respected talent in this league.
Dolphins DE Jared Odrick: The former Penn State DT has pro-level technique as a pass rusher, along with a professional demeanor that will serve him well.  
Steelers OL Maurkice Pouncey: His positive attitude off the field, nasty streak on it, and his consistent results as a run blocker and in pass protection will take him far.
Eagles DE Brandon Graham: A man among boys in the college ranks, Graham’s got the strength and speed to roll up the sacks in the NFL.
Patriots CB Devin McCourty: A scrappy defender who should have the opportunity to shine in New England.
Rams QB Sam Bradford: As long as he stays healthy, I like Bradford’s chances of bringing the Rams offense back to a level of respectability.

I find it interesting that Scout.com put Spiller at the head of the list. They did list these players in the order in which they were drafted and they didn’t go in alphabetical order. Even though they didn’t number them seeing Spiller listed first leads me to believe they believe Spiller has the greatest chance for immediate success.
