i think felix jones is way too high on everyones rankings. he deserves to be ranked 8th or so.. also dont like jacob hester as the #1 fb. owen schmitt is a beast.

ps. jamie silvas been gettin the shaft around here. #24 safety??? so what if hes not as fast as everyone else. he knows how to play football and thats all that should matter. representing rhode island

Only one eye-opener .. where's Keller?

aha he forgot about keller. what a bum

The other mildly surprising thing in there, besides Keller, was Bryan Kehl that high.

Pretty standard rankings, I do think Kehl can be a pretty good player though, so I'll give him that.

I'd say I was most surprised about not including Erin Henderson in his OLB rankings.

Can someone tell me why Felix Jones is always rated so much higher then Chris Johnson other then the fact that he played in the SEC? You would like to think their advantages and disadvantages balance the two out alot more, Johnson has more versatility to offer an offense with more speed and better hands...Felix Jones had Darren McFadden for defenses to key in while when you played ECU you game planned to stop Johnson, and the ECU offense was more traditional then the 'Wild Hog'...I dont fully understand why Jones is a mid to late 1st rounder while Johnson is a 2nd at best.

Gossilin never produces anything original until a day or 2 before the draft when his insider leaks him some team's actual draft board. Until then he just pretty well follows the general pattern that has evolved.

Reggie Smith not a good prospect?

Chris Johnson had trouble playing RB in college, there's no way he's going to stick there in the pros

Poor man's Reggie Bush, and that's saying something

John Flacco ftw!

On Henderson - I think most look at him as a secondary tier LB, and without the top tier measurables, he's in that 2nd-4th mix. Now, I don't agree with these rankings, but I can agree with not having Henderson in the top 5 of OLB's.

On Reggie Smith - I think everyone's waiting to see what type of athlete he is. He wasn't dominant enough that a lack of athleticism wouldn't hurt. He's probably more in that 2nd-3rd mix right now that most acknowledge.

I agree with Devin Thomas

Although I am not a big Schmitt fan, I do think he should be a little higher

His final mock usually comes out about the day before and it is scary accurate. I am looking forward to reading it the morning of the draft.

I do. His production on a **** team can't be ignored.

Chris Johnson can't hold Reggie Bush's jock as a prospect. Stop hating on Reggie. People forget how ******* unbelievable he was in college. Give him at least one more year before we write him off. He's what, 23? Not even close to hitting his athletic prime.

Had trouble playing Rb in college?? Thats certainly news to me and the 1st ive ever heard of it, and even still, he accomplised more then Felix Jones did...Not saying Jones isnt talented, but I dont see what he's done in the off season workouts or on film that makes him head and shoulders so much better and you still didnt answer that.

Majority of Jones' carries were when he wasnt playing the traditional rb role anyway, he didnt have to carry the offense or be the go to guy, and he hasnt ran any eye popping times either.
