I'm sure some of you have seen this before, but I just wanted to post it to get a reference from someone else ranking these players strictly off of 3-4 value, so it's nice to look at guys and how their overall ranking may change.

Click the link to see his write-ups on some of the rankings...Interesting to see those NT rankings, Scott and Baker pretty high, two guys I learned about through the hype a prospect thread.


Frantz Joseph is also pretty high on the list for a MLB, if he's still a 5th round value you can't tell me that's not good value for a guy who could potentially start down the line...Poor man's Mualuaga?


Also surprised to not see Lawrence Sidbury anywhere on the list.

I've seen Clint Sintim listed/considered as a 3-4 ILB for a little while now.... I kind of love that idea....

Is he a consideration for us at 51? I want to like that idea... should I?

I think so. Certainly a very intriguing potential fit for him. You have to know STRIP would hate seeing Sintim with a star on his helmet...

A couple of guys that get a lot of 3-4 end talk in Ziggy Hood and Alex Magee not on the list tells fans of 3-4 teams something there. I know there are some Fili Moala doubters as well so interesting that he's on the list. Lots of the ends are pretty small with a decent amount of projection. Four of the final five in the top 10 ends under 280, with one under 270? Seems like they have the frames to put on weight but will they remain effective with the added bulk? LOTS of projection there, but I guess that's what scouts get paid for...

Think Myron Pryor is a little underrated at NT. Like seeing Roy Miller in there, interesting to have Vaughn Martin rated pretty high for a guy that's basically all tools right now. Surprised Knighton out of Temple got no mention in the 3-4 at end or tackle, he's got the size for it...

I've honestly focused less on the LB's than the DL's but still find Aaron Maybin interesting and like the Frantz Joseph love.
