This is a preliminary positional rankings (prospects will rise and fall over time) with round grades in (paranthesis). Top five (*), top ten (**) projections. Just the top ten at every position (top three FB, K, P, weak crop at all three positions), I have some juniors coming out, and some not. Have fun, rip it apart, all feedback welcome!!

Nice rankings. Thanks for taking the time and putting this together.

I hope the Skins draft either Bradford/Locker at QB or Okung/Williams at OT.

Some other guys im really high on just for prospect purposes are Dan LeFevour, Jonathan Dwyer, Mardy Gilyard, Eric Decker, Rolando McClain, Eric Berry, and Taylor Mays. I love watching these guys play.

Thank you, I appreciate it! Being a Bills fan living in Skins nation, and as such, I am still in shock that Maybin was picked over Orakpo last season... Having said that I have watched 99% of every skins game this year, and find it laughable that people (many of those closest to me) believe the skins primary need is at quarterback. Campbell is not as bad as many in the media have made him out to be. Just like the Bills, Packers (yes Rodgers holds the ball a little too long at times), and Chiefs amongst others, the skins primary need is at offensive line, specifically tackle, which without any a quarterback is not going to progress, or the team be successful. Even before getting injured Samuals looked old and slow, not to mention over matched. The Skins should not flinch if Okung is available, Williams I am not sold on, he seems like a right tackle to me, and his success at left tackle this year for the sooners has been limited... Bradford concerns me due to his thowing shoulder issues, although his accuracy, leadership, and overall ability would be welcome in D.C. Locker is one I like, his intangibles and leadership added to his strong arm would be a better bet for me.

The prospects you mentioned are all hight on my list as well, McClain to me is the best over all prospect at linebacker to come out in years, I have him rated higher than Curry last year, and after the combine will be a top ten if not top five pick, he fits any linebacker spot, and any scheme. Berry is a top 5 talent, teams this year are testing him a lot less than last year, so his stats are not as impressive but definetly has ed reed type potential and playmaking ability. Taylor Mays is a physical freak, but does not have the instincts berry has, but in a cover one/man type scheme can handle the back end of coverage in a ronnie lott way, I dont see him making it out of the top twenty, and could easily go in the top ten. LeFevour I like alot as a mid round prospect, a four year starter who has one some games that CMU had no buisiness winning, but has been up and down throughout his career, although games he should win this year, he has, there is not shame losing to Arizona and B.C. Eric Decker will probably fall because of the sprained foot, and missing essentially the last third of the season, 6'2" and a great route runner who knows how to get open, when he got injured Minnesota's offense really suffered, he will be a steal for someone in the mid rounds. Dwyer should make someone really happy in the first or early second, the only reason he falls is because he played in an option offense, which in the end with his size and speed should not matter, the league does not have too many 230 + pound backs that can take it to the house. Gilyard has been a weapon for the bearcats, and consistant one for a couple years now, he tore Uconn apart two weeks ago, than disappeared against W.V. last week, but his consistant production, and skill set (leadership especially) will get him drafted no later than the second round, and I think the chance to be a number two reciever immendiatly in the nfl. Definetly all 8 are acceptional college players, and should go on to solid to hall of fame careers in the nfl.

It's Ryan Matthews not Ryan Marshall. Other then that I like your rankings.

It is bizarre that both you and Raider Nation have Dorin Dickerson listed as a fullback. I don't know how anyone can see him that way let alone two of you in the same week. Weird.

He certainly wouldn't be your conventional player at that position. Some team will probably try him out as an H-Back first.

Yeah, he would be an HB, TE, WR... not a FB

H-back is what I am thinking, listed him as full back to get him into the rankings, I do not think he will be a tight end in the nfl, with h-back being a better fit. I am trying to figure out wether h-back is more of its own category or not, its a wierd hybrid position... Right now I see them as fullbacks so I put Dorin there for now, so thats why he's there on my end...
