These are my latest positional rankings and big board that I've been sitting on for a few days. I'm bringing them to the DC forums first. Since we're post Combine now, I have round projections with my rankings. Sometimes I have a player rated more highly on my board than I think he's likely to go, so I like to include both my rankings and my draft projections. This time around I'm going to break it up into just two separate categories:

I. Big Board (Top 150)
II. Positional Rankings
--------i. Offense
--------ii. Defense
--------iii. 3-4 Defense

It should be pretty easy to follow, but if anyone finds any typos or inconsistencies in the layout just let me know. As always, I welcome other opinions and will always explain my take. Leave any kind of feedback you want. I post a lot of my thoughts & work on twitter as well and there's no reason for any NFL Draft fan not to have an account. Day to day, the best draft info on the net goes through twitter. Be sure to check out my Three Round Mock Draft in the Mock Draft forum later tonight. Enjoy!

Obviously going to have some differences with a list this extensive, but well put together board/rankings and a quality read.

I love the stuff you do! The only thing that threw me off was that you had Sam Acho as your 19th ranked DE, I think that is undermining his talent and potential a good bit... but to each his own. Very great stuff man, thanks for putting all the effort into it for people like me to enjoy!

I actually just like Acho much more at Outside Linebacker in the 3-4. He seems to have more upside there than he does at Defensive End. He's undersized for the end spot and doesn't appear to have an elite first step; however, he's a good athlete and may be able to play in space at the next level. He's 74th on my Big Board, so a solid 3rd-Round grade.

Fantastic read.

Very interested in the QB Rankings being a Bengals fan, You obviously feel a lot more comfortable with Mallet than most. I love the guy when i watch his games for the most part but i kinda feel uncomfortable when i watch his interviews.

What is your overall opinion on Him? and throw in Gabbert to the mix as well, because like many im struggling to see how he gets such high praise from so many people, because i find very little in his games that makes me think he is a good NFL QB.

Nice to see Hankerson rated so high. I love him too and his stock really improved since the end of the season (strong Senior Bowl etc...)

What would be your scouting report on him ?

Fantastic work as always...

thanks pudge. been waiting for these. ill give a more in depth review later today but real quick what are your views on tandon doss? ive seen him as high as 4th or 5th ranked wr and as low as the early teens. seems to be a lot of mixed views on him and ive read quite a few different reports on his value. i honestly havent been able to watch much game tape on him.

never really thought of marvin austin as a nt. interesting. i guess at 310 he could add a little bit of weight and pull it off. but i just don't think he is disciplined enough. a little surprised to see you move mallet ahead of locker after combine interviews and such. personally i think their ranking is system/scheme based and can't accurately be compared.

Well I've had Mallett as my #2 Quarterback since after the Senior Bowl. I expected Locker to shine in that setting. I thought he'd stand out from Ponder, Dalton, Stanzi, and Kapernick; however, that didn't happen. Locker's a fringe first round value to me and I think he'll go somewhere in the 20-30 range (Seattle or trade-up scenario.)

Now, I think due to character concerns, Ryan Mallett will go lower on draft day. But if I had to pick a QB from this class to start a game for me this upcoming weekend, it'd be Mallett. I think he's the most comfortable pocket passer in this class (of the Top 4 QBs on my board) and physically/mentally is the most prepared. I can't say I love his personality, which will surely turn plenty of teams off, but I do like his feel for the game, ability to command a huddle, and competitive nature. He was head and shoulders (literally) above most QBs at the Combine throwing the football. He shows the ability to throw with incredible velocity as well as some touch. His consistency (in that regard) needs improvement, but the skill is already there. On the field, he's less of a project than Locker and I do doubt that he becomes the next Ryan Leaf.

As for Tandon Doss, I need to see more as well. I get to watch a lot of Big Ten football here in Ohio and I'll catch a Hoosiers game from time to time. Doss has the physical ability (6'2 201 4.5-4.55est) and adds KR value, but he doesn't stand out it any particular area and I struggle to see what could make him more than a #3 WR at best. He seems like a guy that may have been better off staying in school. However, I'll say I could be selling short his upside. I'll be eager to hear how he performs in workouts and at his Pro Day.

Great work, Pudge!

I'll repeat my one note whine: I think you are grossly underrating Sanzenbacher. With teams relying increasingly more on quick and shifty guys to be the 3rd WR, the guy is bound to be scooped up earlier than the 6th. He's a gamer.

Great work. Why so low on Brooks Reed, Rodney Hudson, Torrey Smith and DeMarcus Van Dyke? Van Dyke's 40 doesn't make me an instant believer either but isn't 22 a bit low? I'd say the same for Brandon Burton at 13.

You also seem high on Shane Vereen, Adrian Clayborn and Ras-I Dowling. Any reason?

And just one more side note, love your ranking of KJ Wright. I think he eventually ends up in New England as the OLB we all know they need.

yea from what i have seen i think he projects very well into the slot. big physical talent who isnt afraid to go across the middle and can make the first defender miss with a nice combination of elusiveness and physicality. seems to catch well with his hands but doesnt create separation or provide enough of a big play threat to be a #1 type of guy.

Nice work as always, Pudge. I agree with you re: Acho as an OLB - I'm liking him for the Chargers with our first 3rd rounder (82) if he lasts.

I'd really like Austin in San Diego as well, but I'm looking at him to play the 5-tech in our scheme. Stout in the run, can command double-teams, & has enough strength & quicks to push the pocket. We have two 2nds & I'd have no issue pulling the trigger on him at 50 or 61 (or is it 62? I forget).

Newton is currently the favorite to be the 1st Overall Pick. Unless he has a horrendous Pro Day (which is unbelievably unlikely) it looks as if he's a mortal lock to go Top 5. You can keep thinking he'll fall to the top of the Second or so, I just wouldn't go telling any friends that. He was undoubtedly the best player in college football a year ago and has special potential. His ranking on my board (and most NFL boards) is based not on where he is at now, but where he could be with some coaching up.

Newton will go top 3, without a doubt.

With that being said I wouldn't take him until the second round.

And that is fine. I'm ok with different opinions on actual value. I think specifically Newton won't get past my Bengals at 4th Overall. He does appear the current front-runner to be the top pick to Carolina. Clausen was a pretty small investment (under $2 mil a year) for the Panthers. Newton has much higher upside and gives the team a real direction & face of the franchise. I can't claim to know how great a face that'd be, as Cam does seem pretty immature for that responsibility.

I asked you this in another thread, but surprised you have Danny Watkins over Cannon. Cannon has age in his favor, versatility, because alot of people feel he can kick over to RT and in the scout thread he said this


M. Cannon- " He tries to win with his size. he's go some stiffness. does not always finish. not ready to play. it will take him a year or so to get it. when he does he has the ability to play left tackle.



Even if he can't play right away, the ability to play LT in somes eyes would have to bump him up. I think Cannon could go late in the 1st, I'd be pretty pissed if we took Watkins over Cannon.

Why? I can buy that Cannon may fit the mold of the type of lineman you guys go after or Watkins is a bit too old, but Watkins is a much better football player.

Technically, BOTH can play LT, that's what Watkins was at Baylor... but for me, the age issue is the dominant one. He's a 4th rounder at best on my board. He's close to his physical peak and he hasn't even begun to learn the pro system and nuances. He'll have a very sudden and short prime.

Edmond Gates looks like this year's version of Armanti Edwards - tons of physical ability but very raw. It will be interesting to watch how he progresses at the next level.
