ESPN: Top 25 Prospects 25-11

This year, we're running the Top 25 Prospects list from Football Outsiders Almanac 2010 on ESPN.com as well. If you're an ESPN Insider who hasn't purchased this year's book, consider this another preview of the year's best football annual. For those of you who have bought the book (thank you!), there's not much new here; there are some minor edits for the ESPN audience, and pretty pictures of Arian Foster, Lardarius Webb, and Matt Shaughnessy.

Today's article is on prospects 25-11; tomorrow will have prospects 10-1, as well as a feature that's new to all: Organizational rankings of each team's 25-and-under talent.

Outstanding. This is one of FO's pieces which is most consistently waaaay way better than the other stuff out there.

"Today we're bringing you players 11-25 on our list, along with some players who made honorable mention."

Did I miss where the honorable mentions are...?

Sorry for the nitpick; other than that, excellent work!

Offensive lineman whose name rhymes with columbus? All I can think of is columbo

Interestingly, I read the part of the article where "our #1 prospect has to replace a SB MVP of his own team," and thought, "Why is Chase Daniel at #25 then?" Don't know if it was slightly intentional, but interesting that #1 replaces a SB MVP, and #25 could--but with MUCH WORSE consequences for the team involved.
