Ron Wolfley knows a thing or two about the NFL and, with that knowledge, comes a keen sense of what teams will be looking for Saturday when they are on the clock.

Top 10 selections:
1) Detroit: Matthew Stafford, QB, Georgia
2) St. Louis: Jason Smith, T, Baylor
3) Kansas City: Aaron Curry, LB, Wake Forest
4) Seattle: Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech
5) Cleveland: Brian Orakpo, DE/OLB, Texas
6) Cincinatti: Eugene Monroe, T, Virginia
7) Oakland: Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri
8) Jacksonville: Mark Sanchez, QB, USC
9) Green Bay: Everette Brown, DE/OLB, Florida State
10) Michael Oher, G, Mississippi

But, Wolf’s favorite players in the draft are these guys:

1) Aaron Curry, LB, Wake Forest
2) Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech
3) Brian Orakpo, DE/OLB, Texas
4) Jason Smith, T, Baylor
5) Chris “Beanie” Wells, RB, Ohio State
