I like what I saw out of Ryan physically but he made too many bonehead throws yesterday. I really like him (have him at #3) but until I see his decision making improve I don't get him over Woodson.

I think Ryan and Woodson is really close and I just prefer the pocket presence of Matt Ryan to the athleticism of Andre Woodson. it's essentially a coin flip however

I dig the TE ratings. Coffman and Rucker both looked great yesterday. Rucker had around 10 catches.

ryan torain needs to be higher

ryan torain needs to be higher

I feel he's fairly one dimensional as a runner and is strictly a power back. I'd like to see him add some elusiveness and become a more complete runner before I put him ahead of some of these other guys

Added offense and defense. Special teams don't really matter

Quarterbacks
Ryan is awfully high for me. Wright I don't think deserves to be in the top 10. Great physical tools, not so much mentally. I can live with your others, considering how bad Henne was.

Running Backs
We all know I'm a huge Hart guy, so he's a little low for me. Then again, he doesn't project well with his size/speed ratio, but he does all the little things well and he's very shifty. #3 is surprising for Jones, but I can live with it. I was really impressed with Tashard Choice though

Fullbacks
Good job. 1 and 2 are interchangeable IMO.

Wide Recievers
Not a big Manningham fan I assume? I'd take Bennett, Doucet, Manningham and Bowman before Sweed. Looks good though

Tight Ends
You have Carlson very low. Can you explain why? Not saying it's bad, I have him higher I'm just curious as to what your reasoning is. And where is Martellus Bennett?

Offensive Tackles
Baker and Long are in a dead heat, so that's fine. Rest looks good.

Offensive Guards
Good job

Centers
Good job

Defensive Ends
This is one sick DE class. I'd put Harvey, Gholston and L.Jackson ahead of T. Jackson, but it's pretty good.

Defensive Tackles
No love for Terrance Taylor? Fili Moala from USC should crack your list as well. Dorsey is a MAN! He's excellent

Outside Linebackers

Cushing at #1 surprised me, because I don't think he's as good as his own teammate. Connor is at MLB this year, but he can play either. Wheeler is dirty too, I like him a lot. I like this OLB class.

Inside Linebackers
I can't have James L. at #1, and it's not because he's a Buckeye. He gets blown off the ball too easily. I'd probably put him at 5th on that list. Maualuga is probably the best blitzing LB besides Cushing this year and Leman is very underappreciated. You could put Connor at ILB too.

Cornerbacks
1 and 2 are interchangeable for me. Ikegwuonu is probably the most physical corner in the country and I like him a lot. Jenkins is terrific too. King just eliminates his half of the field, but he needs better ball skills. Where's Johnny Sears on that list? ;) just kidding


Safeties
Zbikowski needs a big year to crack the top 5. He had a very poor year last year and needs a big bounce back.

I think John Carlson deserves to be better then 5th. He was the only bright spot last game against G Tech. I kind of feel bad that he has to go through with this season with the QB situation they are in.

1. Brian Brohm Louisville
2. Matt Ryan Boston College
3. Andre Woodson Kentucky
4. Colt Brennan Hawaii
5. Erik Ainge Tennessee
6. Sam Keller Nebraska
7. John David Booty USC
8. Chad Henne Michigan
9. Kyle Wright Miami (even though he lost the starting spot i still think he has some NFL potential)
10. Paul Smith Tulsa

Out of curiousity, did you make this list after the Appalachian catastrophe? Seems awfully low for Henne.

Matt Ryan seems to be some people's rising star, but I still don't put him ahead of Brohm, Woodson, or Brennan

Jack Ikegwuonu. :p I get good as spelling the names most of the time but I don't think I'm gonna be able to get his all year, he needs a nick name. I couldn't figure out Samardveuntgiunf all year so I just used "the shark" all the time.

Not a big fan of the LB rankings. Talib is too low on the CBs IMO. Don't like Pinkard that high (I don't think he's starting) and Hefney not being there.

I-K-E-G-W-U-O-N-U.. yeah took me a while to get it.. nice to see him get some love, I like the lists, I think it's hard to say at this point in the year but I think that Steve Slaton might fall down the list as a prospect after the combine

He probably will but for now it's hard to keep him out of the top 2 or 3

With Henne it seems that people are willing to rank him high due to his physical abilities, while some just don't see an NFL starter in him and rank him appropriately.

Even before the recent huge upset and his poor performance, I'd say that were someone to rate him on how NFL ready his game seems right now, putting him at #8 isn't that unrealistic. Putting him behind Sam Keller is a whole other deal though.

Also if you're gonna rank an UM OG, make it Derrick Morse, Bain is barely starting and was ridiculously close to losing his job to a freshman. The coaches have done nothing but praise Morse and he can play center as well as OG.
