  • Major Rankings Changes Coming

    Hey,

    Just wanted to let everyone know that there will be some major changes coming in my rankings when I update them next week. Just wanted to give a heads up so I don't get accused of having a knee-jerk reaction based on the Combine results... :)

    Most notably there will be a new member of my Top 3 overall and there will be some moved in my Top 4 offensive tackles as well.

              Shoot, I thought I was spot on with it!


              7. Jason Smith OT Baylor
              Athletic former tight end with the tools to protect the blind side.

              That's the guy I'm betting on!

                I think I read that you are getting more and more impressed with Crabtree, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was him at #3 behind Stafford and Curry.

                  I don't think anyone would accuse you of 'knee-jerk' reaction based on the combine, but I think the combine has already yielded some suprises which would cause one to at least take a fresh look. While the tape don't lie (what you see on video), neither does the 'tape'. One of the very interesting things to me (perhaps even more than 40 times) is the variance from their schools 'official' pre-combine height/weight listing.

                  I'm not saying it will definitely affect where he goes in the draft - in fact, I don't think it will -, but Crabtree's measured height combined with not running the 40 isn't helping his immediate cause any...
                  ...and Moreno' 10# positive suprise will cause teams to look at him with fresh eyes, especially if his speed there (in this case, it COULD affect his draft position.

                    I wasn't here for the chat, but would I be right in saying that OT Jason Smith from Baylor is going to move up in the rankings a lot?

                      Time to go ahead and move Beasttree into your top 5 prospects, Scott.
                      The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                      “We know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. We’ve shown we’ve been able to do that.” - Jabari Greer

                        It has to be Jason Smith. There has been no bad news for Smith the past two days as he measured in as expected, and also raised a couple eyebrows with 33 bench reps. Also, you have to think a guy this confident and hard-working is interviewing off-the-charts. He has talked to two Top 6 six reportedly in Seattle and Cincinnati and also acknowledged a fair possibility of being the first overall pick (though who wouldn't say that if put on the spot hah)

                          6'1 1/4 and moving up? Maybe. Some scouts I've heard have him placed firmly atop their boards, though I think in the back of his head Scott likes Jeremy Maclin too much to create a large rift between the two. Or maybe that's just me ;)

                            Well it def won't be Crabtree or Andre. I'm thinking Maclin or Jason Smith.

                              I think it's safe to say that Monroe will be the one moving out of the top 3.

                              So, I think it will be one of the following moving in:

                              Malcolm Jenkins
                              Chris Wells
                              Michael Crabtree
                              Jason Smith
                              Percy Harvin (Shocker!)

                              I'm not going out on much of a limb lol.
