          I'd definitely say Wilson is more like Ahmad Bradshaw than Charles. He has speed like Jamaal, but he has a way different running style.

            Yeah, I'd compare him to Hasselbeck.

              QB
              Andrew Luck- Peyton Manning
              And while yes Luck is more athletic, I don't think you will see him scramble as much in the NFL as he has at Stanford. In the pocket he is very similar to Peyton. He has similar arm strength. And the aforementioned cerebral part.

              Robert Griffin III- Steve Young
              RG3 and Young are both finess runners with good not great arms. Both have great accuracy. Both needed/will need developing.

              Ryan Tannehill- Alex Smith
              Athletes, successful in college. Not a franchise QB.

              RB
              Trent Richardson- Rashard Mendenhall
              Mendenhall and Richardson are both power downhill runners. Neither can break off 60 yard runs, but are great pure runners. Jones-Drew is much more well rounded and much faster.

              Lamar Miller- Clinton Portis
              Super speedy, a little hesitent. Great triangle numbers.

              Montee Ball- LaDanian Tomlinson
              Touchdown monsters, well rounded, great cutting ability. Does not have Tomlinson's straight line speed.

              Chris Polk- Willis McGahee
              Workhorse with underated speed

              David Wilson- Jamaal Charles
              Great speed and cutting ability

              LaMichael James- Barry Sanders
              James is very similar to Sanders. And he runs with more power than guys like Darren Sproles. Is he Sanders caliber? No. But yes I would say he is a poor man's Sanders.

              WR
              Justin Blackmon- Dez Bryant
              Great all around receivers but have concentration laspes. Similar athletes.

              Alshon Jeffrey- Mike Williams (USC)
              Questionable work ethic, but talent is there.

              Kendall Wright- Mike Wallace
              Great speed and route runners. Can make defenses pay.

              Dwight Jones- Vincent Jackson
              Can go up and make plays with great size and speed.

              Michael Floyd- Larry Fitzgerald
              Will make the touch catches all over the field.

              TE
              Dwayne Allen- Antonio Gates
              Great blocker with great athleticism and receiving ability.

              Coby Fleener- Heath Miller
              Great blockers with subpar speed.

              OL
              Matt Kalil- Joe Thomas
              Elite blind side protector, a bit light and worse in run blocking. Definitely not bad, just they are better at pass protecting.

              David DeCastro- Logan Mankins
              Great all around man handling guard with great technique.

              Riley Reiff- Matt Light
              Great technition who comes from Iowa and has the Patriots mold.

              Johnathon Martin- Jeff Otah
              Otah and Martin both struggle with speed rushers and are both very, very good run blockers.

              DL
              Quinton Coples- Julius Peppers
              Talent is there, both have motors that run hot/cold.

              Whitney Mercilus- Osi Umenyoria
              Great speed rushers who have a knack for stripping the football.

              Andre Branch- Jason Pierre Paul
              Great all around defensive ends with similar size. Not quite the athlete that Pierre Paul is.

              Melvin Ingram- Charles Johnson
              All around defensive end with similar measureables.

              Jerel Worthey- Corey Williams
              Thick penetrators who can make plays. Questionable motor.

              Fletcher Cox- Reggie White
              Fletcher Cox 6'4 295 rumored to run a 4.6, tweener who can play defensive end or tackle. Reggie White 6'5 300 runs a 4.6, tweener who plays defensive end and tackle.

              Devon Still- Jared Odrick
              Still and Odrick are both penetrators. Colleges tend to recruit similar players to fit their scheme, and Still and Odrick are similar athletes who both are more suited as one gap penetrators.

              Brandon Thompson- Brodrick Bunkley
              Great run stoppers who have similar athleticism and potential as penetrators.

              LB
              Vontaze Burfict- Rey Maualuga
              Bone head, but definitely has tried to change. And it has made him worse.

              Luke Kuechly- Paul Posluzny
              Technition and tackle machine who lacks the elite athleicism.

              Courtney Upshaw- LaMarr Woodley
              3-4 rush backers with great pass rushing.

              Zach Brown- Patrick Willis
              Similar athletes with great potential.

              Donta Hightower- Rolando McClain
              Similar measureables and ability coming out of Bama.

              DB
              Morris Claiborne- Champ Bailey
              Great ball skills, coverage ability, and tackling.

              Janoris Jenkins- Asaunte Samuel
              Instinct players with great ball skills.

              Dre Kirkpatrick- Malcom Jenkins
              Might be better suited for safety, registered 0 picks this year.

              Johnthan Banks- Nnamdi Asomugha
              Watch him play. Always around the ball for a corner. Lots of turnovers this season.

              Mark Barron- Darren Sharper
              Great all around safety with good form and hard hitting ability.

                    Nope there is a reason for each and every comparison, I will quote the post and post them if you want.

                      Well I just feel like there has to be better comparisons that can be made than LeMichael James as Barry Sanders. Devon Still plays nothing like Odrick, I understand they both went to PSU but again, nothing alike. Fletcher Cox as Reggie White? Really? I don't see the Charles Johnson comparisons to Melvin Ingram. Andre Branch plays nothing like Jason Pierre Paul. Pierre Paul is just a freak, Aldon Smith is Pierre Paul like. Whitney Mercilus is a little slower and I don't think anything like Osi, Osi can't kick inside like Whitney can. Jeff Otah to Johnathan Martin is just an awful comparison. One guy excels at pass blocking and one guy is a straight road grater. There is not an ounce of Mendenhall in Richardson, Richardson is much more like an MJD type like the original poster stated. And RGIII to Steve Young? Really? Completely different types of runners and throwers. Not even close IMO. Tannenhill has a strong arm and is an athlete, don't see Alex Smith at all. Luck is much more mobil than Peyton but I can see the cerebral and play calling comparison. But sure, I'd love to see the explanations.

                        Ingram and Johnson are both well rounded defensive ends who are low to the ground. Both are 6'2 270.

                        Andre Branch and Pierre Paul are similar pass rushers. Branch may not be as athletic, but they are both terrors at similar height weights.

                        Otah and Martin both struggle with speed rushers and are both very, very good run blockers. I don't know what you're talking about here.

                        Alex Smith also had a strong arm and was an athlete...

                          Luck is a mobile Peyton manning. RG3 is vick. Richardson I would compare to Steven Jackson. Blackmon I would say TO. Coples to me is like Richard Seymour. Kirkpatrick makes me want to say ronde barber. Claiborne I would say revis or champ.

                            There is no chance that Cox runs a 4.6 That is the most absurd thing I have ever heard. It's pretty easy to watch the guy run on tape and know he doesn't run a 4.6 and looks nothing like Reggie White in his play. Also, plenty of other 1-gap penetraters that I would compare Devon Still over Odrick. I'd say it was pretty lazy picking of players to compare them to if that's really the reason you picked him.

                            Martin is not that good of a run blocker, he's a much better pass blocker.

                              Scouting Report: Stanford's Jonathan Martin
                              Updated 11/12/2011 Print 0 0
                              Jonathan Martin
                              OT, Stanford
                              6-foot-7, 300 lbs.

                              Strengths
                              Outstanding size and length. Athletic knee-bender with very good speed and quickness for the position. Has the lateral range necessary to handle the outside speed rush. Can mirror opponent with hand usage and punch. Plays on his feet. Can redirect his feet quickly versus inside move. Works to sustain his blocks. Can pull to the outside and adjust to defenders in space.

                              Weaknesses
                              Tends to play high at times. Needs to be more consistent as a run blocker as he needs to play with better leverage on contact. Added strength will improve his anchor versus the power rush. Has ability to dominate more often than he does.

                              Summary
                              The massive junior combines the prototype size and athletic ability needed to be a future high NFL draft pick and longtime starter at the next level. Outstanding in pass protection. Very good quickness and knee bend for a big man. Can neutralize speed rushers all day due to his impressive quickness and hand use. He also possesses very good strength but needs to add more bulk to his frame in order to be more consistent as a run blocker on the line of scrimmage. Will need to play more consistently in the physical part of the game and I think he will as he matures and his frame fills out to its potential. This player has both the ability and upside to improve due to his solid intangibles. Overall, Martin is one of the top OT’s in the college game right now.
