  • Your First Round Prospects

    If this fits better in the Mock Draft board or somewhere else, then by all means. I think it would be interesting to see what other people have as their first round prospects by position.

    You can interpret that however you want... Be it guys you think will get drafted in round 1, or guys you think have first round talent.

    I dunno if this will take off, but at the very least, it'll make for some good chat fodder.


    I heard Childress was being considered to coach the US Olympic bobsled team. They figure he can get a team to go downhill faster than anyone.

    In my signature are my rankings by position, along with round projections. I have 31 prospects ranked as first rounders, but that includes Malcolm Kelly and Reggie Smith. Next time, those will have dropped and I'll probably upgrade Curtis Lofton and maybe Gosder Cherilus to first rounders. Sorry for just posting a link instead of my top-31 here, I'm just kind of busy right now.

      No, that works, and that's pretty much what I was hoping for.

        Solid first round values for me:

        QB: Matt Ryan
        RB: Darren McFadden, Rashard Mendenhall, Jonathan Stewart
        WR: None
        TE: None
        OL: Jake Long, Ryan Clady, Jeff Otah, Chris Williams, Branden Albert
        DT: Glenn Dorsey, Sedrick Ellis
        DE: Chris Long, Vernon Gholston, Derrick Harvey, Phillip Merling
        LB: Keith Rivers, Jerod Mayo
        CB: Leodis McKelvin, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Aqib Talib, Mike Jenkins
        S: None

        So, I'm up to 21. Pre-combine/pro days/workouts, I was at 20 (addition being Mayo).

        Filling out the last 10 slots, I would go with (random order)

        Joe Flacco, Felix Jones, Devin Thomas, Desean Jackson, Gosder Cherilus, Quentin Groves, Kentwan Balmer, Dan Connor, Antoine Cason, Kenny Phillips

        That said, I think specific rankings are pointless, and I typically go by tiers, so the 31st is a bit debatable for now as I have 4 other guys in the mix.

        The close 4: Limas Sweed, Dustin Keller, Trevor Laws, Brian Brohm

        Have some time right now, so figured I'd post my top 2 round grades. Just to be clear, this isn't how I like the guys, but more my perspective on their values. Next 28 names as of now for me:

        QB: Chad Henne
        RB: Jamaal Charles, Chris Johnson, Matt Forte
        FB: None
        WR: Mario Manningham, James Hardy, Donnie Avery, Andre Caldwell
        TE: John Carlson, Martellus Bennett
        OL: Carl Nicks, Sam Baker, Anthony Collins, Duane Brown
        DE: Lawrence Jackson, Calais Campbell
        DT: Dre Moore, Pat Sims
        LB: Xavier Adibi, Curtis Lofton, Cliff Avril
        CB: Brandon Flowers, Tracy Porter, Justin King, Patrick Lee, Antwaun Molden
        S: Tyrell Johnson, Dajuan Morgan

        The two close but no cigar (as that's 63 names, and I usually go by 5's): Ray Rice and Early Doucet.

            My top 31 list:

            QB - Matt Ryan
            RB - Darren McFadden, Rashard Mendenhall, Jonathan Stewart, Chris Johnson

            WR - Devin Thomas, Limas Sweed, Desean Jackson, James Hardy
            TE - Dustin Keller

            OT - Jake Long, Chris Williams, Ryan Clady, Gosder Cherilus
            OG - Brandon Albert


            DE - Chris Long, Vernon Gholston, Derrick Harvey, Philip Merling
            DT - Sedrick Ellis, Glenn Dorsey, Trevor Laws

            LB - Keith Rivers, Quentin Groves, Dan Connor, Jerod Mayo

            CB - Dominique Rogers-Cromartie, Leodis McKelvin, Mike Jenkins, Aqib Talib
            S - Kenny Phillips

            As you can see there are some big name prospects I'm not too high on like Jeff Otah, Kentwan Balmer. And other guys who I'm probably higher on than most people like Trevor Laws, Chris Johnson and James Hardy. This doesn't neccesarily reflect where I think guys will be drafted, I could see both Connor and Mayo dropping out of the first.
            10 Favourite prospects for 2010: Colt McCoy, Dez Bryant, Golden Tate, Noel Devine, Ndamukong Suh, Greg Hardy, Eric Norwood, Travis Lewis, Eric Berry, Trevard Lindley

                  Some people (and probably teams,) now have Jones over Stewart. So take that for what it is worth.

                        That's 27, Felix, Mayo, King and Keller are fringe guys that would put it to 31.

                        That is correct comahan

                          this list makes a lot of sense to me. I don't think Keller is worth a first at this point, maybe Connor is...

                            QB: Matt Ryan
                            RB: Darren McFadden | Rashard Mendenhall | Jonathan Stewart
                            WR: Limas Sweed
                            OT: Jake Long | Ryan Clady | Chris Williams | Jeff Otah | Gosder Cherilus
                            OG: Branden Albert

                            DE: Chris Long | Derrick Harvey | Vernon Gholston | Quentin Groves | Phillip Merling

                            Alright, those 24 are the guys I'd feel very comfortable taking in the 1st Round. If you want my top 31, here are my next seven guys (in no order):

                            QB: Joe Flacco
                            WR: DeSean Jackson | James Hardy
                            TE: Martellus Bennett
                            DT: Kentwan Balmer
                            LB: Curtis Lofton
                            S: Kenny Phillips

                              I kinda read the thread wrong, that's more of what I see happening than personal grades. I think Keller could sneak into the late 1st. I'd take out Gosder, Felix, King and Keller, add in Flacco, Lofton, Bennett and Campbell.

                              That is correct comahan
