Mel Kiper lists his top-five players at each position for next year’s senior class. Kiper lists Ryan Lindley as the top senior quarterback, ahead of Kirk Cousins. He’s also a lot higher on Michael Floyd than I am, listing him ahead of Texas A&M receiver Jeff Fuller.

Dave Razzano (aka the Rogue Scout) rates Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins highly.

I’ll have more on Cousins later this week.
