Nice. I like that they aren't the same ol' rankings that everyone else has. I think I agree with most of them also, especially QB, WR, and 4-3 OLB. I will post my rankings on here one day when I am brave enough to handle the ridicule. LOL.

I agree, I havent been high on Jones through this whole process and believe he is not worth the top 10 pick like some claim. I'd say in the 10-20 area similar to Gabbert is where he should go. It will be interesting though how this QB class shakes out, I think Luck and RG3 will declare and 1 of Wilson, Barkley and Jones will as well.

I'm not buying the LaMichael James as a featured back hype that some give him, and I think Polk can be that. James will undoubtably be a good weapon for what ever team drafts him, but just don't think he is the type of RB you can rely on every game.

*3 David Wilson RB Virginia Tech?

I agree that Wilson should be 3rd ahead of Ball and James.


I'd probably have Orson Charles as my #2 TE. I don't see anything particularly special with Fleener. Seems more like a product of the system/QB, similar to a guy like Chase Coffman. Charles blocks enough and has similar upside to Aaron Hernandez as a receiving threat.


With Lavontae David, I also have scheme concerns because while he's productive, he seems too small to play in most NFL schemes.

*3 David Wilson RB Virginia Tech?

After Richardson and Miller it's really a toss up between Polk, James, Ball and Wilson. They all have the 2/3/4 round type grades and I wouldn't be surprised if even Wilson goes 1st out of the group. I have the other prospects above Wilson because I've seen more of them compared to Wilson and they have been more productive as well.

Good stuff RN, but what we really want to know is where Louis Murphy would fit in to your Top 10 draftable WR rankings.
