Mike Adams has at least propelled himself to being above the likes of Glenn and Martin.

Janoris Jenkins has had a severe drop off after his rumored height of 5'6" IIRC
Nor would I have Dre in my top 20 (If there is one thing I trust Mayock on its DBs)

Brockers might easily be the best DL prospect in this draft and certainly above Still (who is WAY too high)

Just some quick observations.

I like your list for the most part. I don't think Trent Richardson should be that low and I don't get the love for Jonathan Martin, but other than that, solid.

I think Glenn and Adams both had great Senior Bowl Weeks from what I saw. I give Glenn the edge because of his versatility, he also has much better feet than I thought.

I agree with you with Mayock, he has had a good track record with DB's. I just can't figure out his problem with Kirkpatrick, I love his physicality and I think playing in that Bama defense can only help him at the next level. I think Jenkins may be the most natural cover corner in Draft.

Brockers I am just not sold on, not yet at least. I watched Devon Still all season long, and every game he was a force to be reckoned with, commanding a double team nearly every play.

Brockers is really, really raw. Potential is through the roof but he is too raw to justify being really high IMO. Plus it's not like he has had major production. Pretty high bust potential IMO.

Also, where are you seeing about Jenkins' height? I thought he measured in just under 5'10 at the Senior Bowl

He did, no way is he that height, I mean thats like Darren Sproles level.

I was wrong, 5'9" ...still pretty small for a #1 #2 type CB in this league

Jack203 02-09-2012 08:06 PM

Justin Blackmon just isn't going #2 unless he runs an insane 40.

RGIII most likely with Kalil having an outside chance.

These are rankings not draft slots, similar but not the same

It's not ideal but it's not a liability for the style of player he is. He will make a living being a guy who plays predominantly off zone coverage and will seldom have to play man coverage. If he is used like someone like Asante Samuel he could be a great player

I think, coupled with other concerns, it will push him down teams big boards.

Ok maybe its a biy premature and maybe a bit too high but I LOVE this guy after Senior Bowl week, he looked really good almost every single rep, kind of reminds me of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

gpngc 02-10-2012 11:16 PM

I can verify that Bentley was an absolute monster at the Senior Bowl. I don't see him falling past round two after his performance. His hips, quickness, and pure coverage skills are top-notch.

Every small school CB is going to be compared to DRC now. Just go with the flow.

Yeah I agree. I think he's probably a top ten talent in the draft with ball skills but he won't go that high obviously.

Nebula 02-11-2012 06:58 AM

I'd put Brockers a bit higher. Sure sure, he isn't a finished product just yet but his upside is tremendous

Docta 02-11-2012 06:56 PM

His name is actually Dwight Bentley, not Bill.

Thanks... that makes a big difference.
How tall is he, did he measure officially anywhere?
