There are a few guys I still have yet to see enough of to rank (list at the bottom), but today I ended up putting together a list of my top 50 prospects. I haven't researched off-the-field concerns too extensively yet, but I factored them in for some of the big name guys like Michael Floyd, Janoris Jenkins, and Cliff Harris. Obviously this list will change a lot with the upcoming season and once I'm done watching more of the prospects, but I've been working on this board to help with my mock drafts, so I figured it was worth posting. Constructive criticism is always appreciated. Enjoy!

If Lamar Miller can make your Top 50 BB, why isn't he in your 2012 Mock?

Great work, RoP. From first glance it looks like there aren't any real "burners" in the top 50. I know that 40 times can change but it seems rather odd that there is nobody who is a legit 4.4 or better at this point.

Oh well, there is a lot of football to be played before the evaluation process gets started.

P.S. Am I somehow channeling my inner Al Davis? Noooo...Please say it ain't so!!!

Davis is a better player than 17th in this draft. He's kind of crazy, but beyond that if you're looking for a franchise MLB/ILB/LB in this draft then this is probably your guy. Positional value might hurt him, as will his crazy.

Blackmon vs. Jeffery might get interesting. I like Blackmon as much as I liked Hakeem Nicks.

Please do because I am dying to know why!

Lamar Miller is made for the NFL, not collegiate academics. He has prototypical size and speed for the next level. He's not an eloquent speaker to say the least and I don't see why he'd stay in school when that's not his calling. His gifts lie in football and he's physically ready.

Bruce Irvin will shoot up this board. Top 15 by season's end.

My opinion you have Jeff Fuller and Michael Egnew way to high and Cyrus Gray to low. I may even switch Fuller and Gray. But I'm dumb so who cares.

Good work man.

I made my 2012 mock almost three weeks before this, so it's a little bit out of date by now.

Looks pretty good.. of course people will have preferences.

Looks like you nailed the NC players besides MLB Kevin Reddick.

He could be just out of the top 50 though but personally I like him better than Brown as far as being a football player.

Jeffrey will be a 2nd round draft pick and not near the #2 player in the draft.
Anybody who has Jeffrey as the #1 WR hasn't been a draftnik long enough.
Spurrier has sent many WR's to pro football as #1 and #2 round draft picks and almost everyone of them has flopped as a pro. He simply relies on his offensive system to make WR's look far better than they actually are. Spurrier places his better athletes who could play WR at DB and has produced many fine DB's for pro football but I repeat, his WR's mostly flop or are huge disappointments.
Jeffrey will be very lucky to see round 1 as pro GM's are very aware of his tendency to put inferior athletes at the WR position and often downgrade them 1 round for playing in Spurrier's offensive system.

He will be that guy that IF Jeffrey does somewhat bust will tell everybody every day.

I think Alshon will succeed however but might be slightly over drafted come next year.

He did post the same thing in about 6 different threads so he's pretty committed.
