I spent several weeks working on my top 100 and, as always, ranking the top players was extremely difficult. After meeting with every person on the list, except LaMarcus Coker, and watching film on all 100, I can place quarterback Greg Paulus at No. 2 with no hesitation.

Greg Paulus
Two-sport star Greg Paulus is the center of attention.
The 6-2, 185-pounder from Syracuse (Christian Brothers), N.Y., looks like a cross between Joe Montana and Brett Favre. His film shows a signal caller with a quick release, exceptional timing and instincts, coolness under pressure and the ability to buy time in the pocket. If that's not impressive enough, Paulus has a high release point, tremendous mechanics, big-time arm strength and his ability to lead receivers on crossing routes is exceptional.
