Found February 16, 2013 on NFL Draft Zone:
This year, NFL Draft Zone has grown to new levels, so we here would like to share our top 10 lists for all of our followers.  I would like to introduce you all to our writers in this segment as well. Shaun DePasquale came on board after helping over at Pro Football Zone and has extensive knowledge of the draft process.  Jordan Norcutt has been a member of NDZ for a while and is another key asset to the site, who has great knowledge of the football industry. Here is our top 10 list of players that we believe are the best of the best, if you have twitter and want to follow us, feel free to do so by just click our names in the top 10 list, which will take you to our twitter pages.  We hope you enjoy. -While our lists differ from start to finish, There is no way I can turn my head on a kid like Jarvis Jones.  Both Jones and Barkley are the two most polished players in the upcoming draft.  I have them 1 and 2, but they are tied in my opinion.  I give the edge to Jones because he dominated the SEC as a pass rusher. – Damond Talbot -In a draft class without a true #1 QB, nor a consensus dominant pass rusher, Luke Joeckel is my top prospect. Technique, size and domination of the highest level of CFB make Joeckel the best option. Has the appearance of a cornerstone LT. – Shaun DePasquale -Joeckel will indefinitely become a franchise left tackle and anchor the spot on whichever team takes him. His talent stands out as a very athletic player with nimble feet to navigate oncoming pash rush. He relies on his excellent pass protection but his run blocking must improve to complete his game. – Jordan Norcutt   NFL Draft Zone Writer’s Top Ten Players in 2013 NFL Draft Damond Talbot Shaun DePasquale Jordan Norcutt 1st Jarvis Jones – Georgia Luke Joeckel – Texas A &M Luke Joeckel – Texas A&M 2nd Matt Barkley – USC Trojans Star Lotulelei – Utah Star Lotulelei  – Utah 3rd Chance Warmack – Alabama Damontre Moore – Texas A&M Damontre Moore – Texas A&M 4th Luke Joeckel – Texas A&M Chance Warmack – Alabama Björn Werner – Florida State 5th Eric Fisher – Central Michigan Eric Fisher – Central Michigan Dee Milliner – Alabama 6th Björn Werner – Florida State Sharrif Floyd – Florida Kenny Vaccaro – Texas 7th Sharrif Floyd – Florida Cordarrelle Patterson – Tenn.
