    Cris Carter says Harvin will be.

    I say Harvin as well. Put an all ready explosive guy on turf and you can create nightmares in addition to Peterson.

    I would say Crabtree, but as Z pointed out, SF will bring him down his star power.
    Percy definitely has the ability to be.

    Re: So who will be the biggest star of the draft?

    Donald Brown(RB Colts) will have a lot of success. I don't see any of the recievers being true stars right away, too much of a learning curve in the nfl for a wide reciever.

    Why is it that "stars" are only WRs and RBs?


    Joe Thomas is the clear STAR of the 2007 draft class to this point, even more than AD, IMHO.


    I'm sticking with Jason Smith.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    More than Adrian Peterson? He's already set the single game rushing record, won rookie of the year, and has a rushing title. Also he got his team to the playoffs, Cleveland finished 4-12.
    The term "star" to me mean recognizable with fans. I would guess that many more people know what Peterson has done more so than what Thomas has done. If we were talking MVP you might have a case for MVP, but when talking stardom Peterson is clearly the leader.
    I would say one of the best tests for NFL stardom is Jersey sales, Harvin will have far more than Smith.

    I thought that was the season Cleveland finished 10-6?

    (edit: I don't agree with the jersey sales comment. I don't think a OL will ever sell as many jerseys, just not a flashy position.)
