I don't keep up with the whole college football thing so I don't know anybody unless there a big name player (Heishmen Candiate). So I'm wondering what are the incoming prospects at these positions looking like?

WR
TE
Safety (preferably FS)
D-Line
O-Line

WR-this year appears to have a quite weak class

some of the top receivers this year include:

Derek Hagan, Arizona State
Jason Avant, Michigan
Santonio Holmes, Ohio State
Chad Jackson, Florida
Martin Nance, Miami (Ohio)

TE-a very top heavy group with 4 guys with tremendous upside

Vernon Davis-Maryland
Joe Klopfenstein-Colorado
Mercedes Lewis-UCLA
Leonard Pope-Georgia

Safety-a solid group with no real playmakers (Ed Reed, Roy Williams) but several players that figure to be solid contributors at the next level

Darnell Bing, USC
LaRon Landry, LSU
Jason Allen(CB/S), Tennesee
Michael Huff(CB/S), Texas
Greg Blue, Georgia
Pat Watkins, Florida State

offense and defensive line are the two deepest positions in this draft. real playmakers can and will likely be picked up in the mid rounds of the draft

defensive line:
Mathias Kiwanuka, Boston College
Mario Williams, NC State
Tamba Hali, Penn State
Elvis Dumervil, Louisville
Haloti Ngata, Oregon
Jesse Mahelona, Tennessee
Claude Wroten, LSU
Rod Wright, Texas

offensive line:
D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Virginia
Marcus McNeill, Auburn
Jonathan Scott, Texas
Eric Winston, Miami
Andrew Whitworth, LSU
Daryn Colledge, Boise State
Davin Joseph, Oklahoma
Will Allen, Texas
Nick Mangold, Ohio State
Greg Eslinger, Minnesota
Mike Degory, Florida

Thanks CP to you for helping me out. I think we should try and get aone of the top 4 TE's. If its not possible to get one of them I think we should use our two picks to get a DT and a DE.

J.B. Closner out of Alabama is one of the best centers you'll ever see. I'd like to see him eventually replace Tom Nalen. Plus at 290lbs he fits into the Denver smaller and quicker mentality.

First of all, Ben Hamilton will be moving to center when Nalen retires. It's his natural position. So, then, Chris Myers or P.J. Alexander should fill in at LG. I don't think interior o-line is really a need.

And besides, Greg Eslinger is the next Tom Nalen.

right guard is all but solidified, though Carlisle has played adequately at times this year, he is still a weak link

What about defensive secondary? I love the way Duane Slay, Big 12 defensive player of the year, Safety texas tech plays. The guy will flat out kill people. He plays a game a lot like Rodney Harrison used to. What do you guys think of drafting a kid like that to grow up with fox, darrent, and guided by the great play of champ. dam our secondary would be set for years. ...random thoughts from a guy new to the boards.

yeah missed a couple of games. Should be back for the cotton bowl in January though. Happened at the worst time for Alabama, as they still had to play LSU Auburn and miss state. Britt just wasn't that good.
