I don't remember what his first rankings were, but these look fine for the most part, outside of Kelly as the number 2 WR, which I don't see now. Baker as the number 5 OT isn't something I buy either, Calais at 10 seems a bit harsh.

Very interesting, and for the most part little known, choices as sleepers.

Dont think charles is better then Ray Rice and I can't see Kelly as the #2 WR after what he ran at his pro day.

Two problems:


Jermichael Finley rated the 9th TE is laughable...And Cason that low is ridiculous, he has way too much talent, pedigree, and instincts to be rated that low, on top of absolutely zero character concerns....Props for being different, but I dont buy a guy being his 8th corner who has a 1st rd grade from at least 5 different teams.

Yeah, i dont get the Cason hate...he is questionably a top 3 corner in this class IMO.

That is a pretty low ranking for Reggie Smith....almost hinting he is worth only a 3rd round grade.

That is a pretty low ranking for Reggie Smith....almost hinting he is worth only a 3rd round grade.

Although Reggie Smith's numbers were pretty damn impressive for a safety, so how would that drop him so low in comparison to the other safeties when most of his numbers were better...and im guessing he has these rankings since their workouts, but maybe not because it wouldnt make sense to have him higher then Sweed anymore.



Yeah, i dont get the Cason hate...he is questionably a top 3 corner in this class IMO.

Alot of people are going to have to eat crow when it comes to him, his worst case scenario is probably solid NFL starter with alot of upside left.

Looks good except josh johnson, calais campbell, cason, and reggie smith are ranked to low for me.
