I feel as though the corner back position is among the top if not the top fluid ranking.

Greg Hardy is your ELEVENTH best DE?

Greg Hardy is your ELEVENTH best DE?

He is a little lower than my personal expectation as well, personally I would have him around #8

but seriously, this is great work, well done :)

i agree...every time i look at my rankings i am like wait a second this guy is better than this guy and then he jumps up 2 or 3 spots or down a few spots. I think there is going to be a huge run in the 2nd/3rd round.

Greg Hardy is your ELEVENTH best DE?

Yes he is, and its not really that outrageous, many other draft sites have him outside the top ten looking in. On talent alone, he's probably top 5 but when you factor in character concerns, injuries, and the fact that he just doesn't seem passionate about football in any way, its pretty easy to drop him as such. He should have DOMINATED the east west shrine game and he was only average going up against guys like Chris Scott, A.J. Trump and Rodger Saffold, and was outperformed by Lindsey Witten, imagine what he would have looked like at the Senior Bowl...

Pretty good job. I agree with Hardy down. Also agree that you have Selvie down there as well. Hardy has all the talent but no work ethic at all. E/W Shrine practices he either just took the time off or was just plain old dominated. Had a decent game but everyone saw what he did at practice. Witten didn't have the best week of practice either.
Haslam did very well and although he got snubbed at the combine - he will show very well at Pro Day and teams will love the work ethic and leadership. #14 OT may end up about right for him.
Thinking McCourty has a great chance to jump way up to the top at CB with a big combine.
