Aaron Murray is a fine college player, but I just don't see what others are seeing with regards to his pro prospects.

Think of it as more of a preliminary, unranked big board. There are a number of prospects being considered first-round picks that I wouldn't draft there at this point.

I think at this point it's tough to make a BB. Do you rank it off past years play, the strides you expect them to make(Margus Hunt)/the digression you expect out of players(Landry Jones), or a combination of both? Same thing with a mock draft at this point, people may think you have their team reaching, but a year from now they could be getting a steal. O what a difference a year makes.

I generally rank prospects based on their current level of play. Making projections seems riskier than evaluating how well they perform right now. D.J. Fluker, Margus Hunt, and Johnathan Jenkins are some players who could rise into the first round based on physical ability.

A little off topic, but what's your take on the prospects who have applied for the sup. draft. I haven't seen it discussed, other than Gordon, on this site.
