T.J. McDonald won't go in the first nor do i think Ta'amu and Jenkins will either

Billy Winn is the only defensive tackle that I see as a guy deserving of the top 32 and it's even questionable with him at times (Worthy is in that same boat but just outside the top 32 for myself and a guy I feel should go back to school)...Ta'amu and Thompson are guys that will be solid anchors on the next level but they don't make enough plays that should garner them such high praise...Still is one guy I'm still trying to figure out because he has some high moments on the year but when it came to facing NFL caliber talent, Kevin Zeitler shut him down

Very similar top 10 to mine, I'd swap RG3 with Te'o. Nice BB

Billy Winn only recorded six tackles for loss and one sack on the season, so I doubt he'll go in the first round. Very disappointing output from Winn; he failed to get consistent pressure.

Kalil is not a better player than Barkley in any way, shape, or form. Kalil has some raw physical talent, but is extremely far from dominant, getting beaten several times per game, due entirely to his own mistakes. Whenever USC's offense takes the field, it is obvious Barkley is the far superior of the two.

Luck deserves to be where he is, as the most proven prospect at QB, and a rare talent.

I'm not a big fan of Griffin that high. He is a much bigger project than most people realize.

I admit that I haven't scouted enough players yet this year to know too much about some of the rankings.
