Scout.com's NFL Draft Analyst Chris Steuber debuts his Big Board of the Top 19 seniors who will be available in 2009. 1) James Laurinaitis, LB - Ohio State Steuber says: Laurinaitis is a gifted defender who has great instincts, ball skills and leadership qualities. He has the unique ability to change the face of a game on one play. 2) Michael Oher, OT - Ole Miss Steuber says: Oher is a durable, reliable bookend who excels as a run blocker. He dominates the opposition with his massive frame and is the best OT in college football. 3) Malcolm Jenkins, CB - Ohio State Steuber says: Jenkins has great size, speed, instincts and ball skills. He's smooth in coverage and transitions well with receivers. He's the best CB in the country. 4) Tyson Jackson, DE - LSU Steuber says: After a breakout sophomore season in 2006, Jackson struggled in 2007 and looks to regain his status as one of the nation's feared pass rushers. 5) William Moore, FS - Missouri Steuber says: One of college football's unknown playmakers. Moore has tremendous size, instincts and ball skills that intimidate the opposition. 6) Curtis Painter, QB - Purdue Steuber says: The quarterback position is weak at this point, but Painter is the exception. He has great size, poise and has been productive the last two seasons. 7) Rey Maualuga, LB - USC Steuber says: A terrorizing tackler with great instincts and leadership qualities, Maualuga flies around the ball and is always in position to make a play. 8) Travis Beckum, TE - Wisconsin Steuber says: Beckum is the nation's best pass catching TE and is a major threat. He has great hands, good speed and consistently finds openings within a defense. 9) Phil Loadholt, OT - Oklahoma Steuber says: A monstrous tackle with incredible strength, Loadholt mauls the opposition at the line of scrimmage and is a dominant run blocker. 10) Hunter Cantwell, QB - Louisville Steuber says: With Brian Brohm no longer at Louisville, Cantwell will get his opportunity to shine with the Cardinals. He's a talented QB who can make all the throws. 11) Nic Harris, SS - Oklahoma Steuber says: Harris is a big, physical safety with playmaking ability. He has good speed, awareness and has the potential to be difference maker on defense. 12) Max Unger, OT - Oregon Steuber says: An extremely versatile player, Unger has the ability to play all five positions on the offensive line. He has a great frame and the physical tools to be an elite lineman. 13) Brian Cushing, LB - USC Steuber says: Injuries have stalled Cushing's development, but when healthy he's one of the best linebackers in the country. 14) Alex Boone, OT - Ohio state Steuber says: Boone is a reliable tackle who's developed into one of the best in the country. He has a great frame and is still getting stronger; he has a lot of upside. 15) Aaron Kelly, WR - Clemson Steuber says: An explosive WR with great size, speed and hands. Kelly is a playmaker with a huge upside. He had a breakout 2007 season and will only get better this year. 16) Duke Robinson, OG - Oklahoma Steuber says: Robinson is a great run blocker, who uses his massive frame to his advantage. He mauls the opposition at the line of scrimmage and shows good athleticism. 17) Michael Johnson, DE - Georgia Tech Steuber says: An undersized defensive end with great pass rushing ability. Johnson has a big frame, but he has to get stronger to become an every down player. 18) Chase Coffman, TE - Missouri Steuber says: A prolific pass catcher at the tight end position, Coffman is a player the opposition game plans around. He has great ability and is deadly in the redzone. 19) Ian Campbell, DE/LB - Kansas State Steuber says: Campbell plays with a high motor and is one of the best pass rushers in the nation. He has great speed and quickness and is a terror in the backfield.
