Default ATL's 2012 Rankings.

Plan on following this up post draft with a revised edition based on where they end up and how I like the scheme/coach fit.

QB.
1. Andrew Luck
2. Robert Griffin III
3. Ryan Tannehill
4. Brandon Weeden
5. BJ Coleman
6. Russell Wilson
7. Kirk Cousins
8. Brock Osweiler
9. Ryan Lindley
10. Nick Foles
11. Aaron Corp
12. Austin Davis
Notes: I’m a big fan of BJ Coleman as a developmental guy. Perfect pick for Denver. Also really like Russell Wilson as a backup for a WCO.

RB.
1. Trent Richardson
2. Lamar Miller
3. David Wilson
4. Doug Martin
5. Isaiah Pead
6. Robert Turbin
7. Chris Polk
8. LaMichael James
9. Ronnie Hillman
10. Benard Pierce
11. Michael Smith
12. Dan Herron
13. Taurean Pool
14. Michael Smith
15. Vick Ballard
Notes: Wilson’s running style concerns me to a degree, boom/bust. Miller in ZBS=stud. Pead is going to make an impact as a 3rd down back, early, more later.

WR.
1. Justin Blackmon
2. Kendall Wright
3. Stephen Hil
4. Rueben Randle
5. Michael Floyd
6. Devon Wylie
7. Mo Sanu
8. Alshon Jeffrey
9. Greg Childs
10. Joe Adams
11. Tommy Streeter
12. Marvin Jones
13. Ryan Broyles
14. Chris Givens
15. AJ Jenkins
16. Jarius Wright
17. Brian Quick
18. TY Hilton
19. BJ Cunningham
20. TJ Graham
Notes: Tried to isolate player/talents as much as possible. Feel as if WRs this year especially are highly dependent on scheme/usage, especially in that middle cluster. (Each ARK receiver brings something different to the table for example.)
TE.
1. Coby Fleener
2. Orson Charles
3. Dwayne Allen
4. LaDarius Green
5. Chase Ford
6. Michael Egnew
7. DeAngelo Peterson
8. James Hanna
9. Rhett Ellison
10. Brian Linthicum
Note: Didn't think it was fair to list the SMU convert (Taylor Thompson)

OT.
1. Matt Kalil
2. Cordy Glenn
3. Mike Adams
4. Riley Reiff
5. Bobbie Massie
6. Mitchell Schwartz
7. Jeff Allen
8. James Brown
9. Nate Potter
10. Jonathan Martin
11. Andrew Datko
12. James Carmon
13. Zebrie Sanders
14. Donald Stephenson
15. Matt McCants

Notes: Martin massively overrated. James Brown as a sleeper. Massie’s stock can only go up based on the situation he winds up in. Can stick at LT.

OG.
1. David DeCastro
2. Amini Silatolu
3. Kelechi Osemele
4. Brandon Washington
5. Brandon Brooks
6. Senio Kelemente
7. Lucas Nix
8. Joe Looney
9. Adam Gettis
10. Tony Bergstrom
Notes: Osmele might be able to play OT, but I love him as a G.

C.
1. Peter Konz
2. Kevin Zeilter
3. Ben Jones
4. David Molk
5. Michael Brewster
6. Quenton Salsberry
7. Phillip Blake
8. David Snow
Notes: If Zeilter can handle it, I like his fit here much better.

Defense.

DE.
1. Quinton Coples
2. Courtney Upshaw
3. Melvin Ingram
4. Nick Perry
5. Vinny Curry
6. Chandler Jones
7. Malik Jackson
8. Andre Branch
9. Cam Johnson
10. Whitney Mercilus
11. Jack Bequette
12. Tyrone Crawford (Prefer him as a 34 DE)
13. Olivier Vernon
14. Jonathan Massaquoi
15. Frank Alexander
Notes: Coples has become massively underrated. In addition to being the best 43 DE in the class, I’d also rank him as the top 43 DT or 34 DE. Kentrall Lockett is a sleeper to keep an eye on.

34 OLB
1. Shea McClellin
2. Melvin Ingram
3. Bruce Irvin
4. Courtney Upshaw
5. Vinny Curry
6. Ronnell Lewis
7. Andre Branch
8. Miles Burris
9. Whitney Mercilus
10. Cam Johnson
11. Brett Roy
Notes: Tried to project guys who teams might try these guys at OLB/how they’d fit (left off a couple I feel much better suited as 43 players like C. Jones, N. Perry). Ingram’s value comes from being ultimate chess piece. Must have creative DC to get most out of him. Shea is a force. Irvin could have an Aldon Smith like impact.

DT.
1. Fletcher Cox
2. Dontari Poe
3. Michael Brockers (34 DE)
4. Alameda Ta’Amu
5. Devon Still
6. Josh Chapman
7. Brandon Thompson
8. Derek Wolfe (34 DE)
9. Jerel Worthy
10. Mike Martin
11. Jared Crick (34 DE)
12. Jaye Howard
13. Kendall Reyes
14. Billy Wynn (34 DE)
15. DaJohn Harris
Notes: Still and Reyes overrated. Ta’Amu beast, best fit 43 NT. If best fit is as 34 DE, see (34 DE)

MLB.
1. Luke Kuechly
2. Mychael Kendricks
3. Donta Hightower
4. James Michael Johnson
5. Vontaze Burfict
6. Emmanual Acho
7. Najee Good
8. Jerry Franklin

OLB.
1. Lavonte David
2. Bobby Wagner
3. Demario Davis
4. Sean Spence
5. Audie Cole
6. Zach Brown
7. Terrell Manning
8. Keenan Robinson
9. Josh Kaddu
10. Nigel Bradham
Notes: Feel as if Wagner is a better fit as an OLB. Demario Davis is a monster. Zach Brown has a lot of desirable qualities, could be good if IDEAL landing spot. Currently a sub par football player

CB.
1. Janoris Jenkins
2. Morris Claiborne
3. Dre Kirkpatrick
4. Stephon Gilmore
5. Brandon Boykin
6. Truamine Johnson
7. Josh Robinson
8. Dwight Bentley
9. Casey Heyward
10. Josh Norman
11. Alonzo Dennard
12. Jamell Fleming
13. Leonard Johnson
14. Jayron Hosely
15. Chase Minnifield
16. Coryell Judie
17. Coty Sensabaugh
18. Ron Brooks
19. Ryan Steed
20. Asa Jackson

S.
1. Mark Barron
2. George Iloka
3. Harrison Smith
4. Markelle Martin
5. Antonio Allen
6. Janzen Jackson
7. Brandon Taylor
8. Tramain Thomas
9. Trenton Robinson
10. Christian Thompson
Notes: Iloka can be the answer to the move TEs of today’s game.

Some of "my guys": Trent Richardson, RG3, Bruce Irvin, George Iloka, Devon Wylie, Demario Davis, Brandon Boykin, Shea McClellin, Isaiah Pead, Lamar Miller. Sleepers: BJ Coleman and James Brown.


And 5 Diamonds In the Rough:

TE Chase Ford, OT James Brown, OLB Brett Roy, RB Dan Herron, DE Malik Jackson

There might not be any future stars in that group, but definitely guys that will contribute and provide value based on where they were picked.
