GoRavens 02-19-2011 03:25 PM

Mikel Leshore Kendall Hunter and Daniel Thomas are not better prospects than Mark Ingram. That's absolutely insane

Love Hankerson in the top 5.

What do yall think of DeAndre Brown, WR out of Miss St. He was a 5 star with Julio, Baldwin, Green, Devier Posey and Malcolm Floyd coming out of high school. Huge freshman season and then he had that sick ankle injury and never came back 100%. He'd be a great late round flier and has a similar build to Baldwin.

He definitely has the talent, but the guy is a punk. But really no harm in taking a flyer on him in the 6th. Maybe Harbs and company could straighten him out.

Watt shows me nothing on the field except he can play ok against slow Big Ten predictable offenses.

Wisnieski I like but I don't have him in my personal top 5 rankings.



And yes I have Marvin Austin as my #1 DT, if he had played this year the Tar Heels would have been in the mix for a national championship. He can dominate a game single handedly......I would absolutely love to see us grab him in rd 2.

Well Hunter is just a personal favorite of mine so I may have overrated him. However I think Daniel Thomas is the most complete back in the draft, and I personally think Leshore will be a better RB in the NFL than Ingram. If I had to do the rankings now I would prolly have....

1. Daniel Thomas
2. Mikel Leshore
3. Mark Ingram
4. Stevan Ridley
5. Kendall Hunter

I've watched a ton of tape on Marvin Austin, and I've never seen him dominate a game. Classic case of looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane. He gets washed out of run plays very easily, he has extremely sloppy technique and plays with horrid leverage. I don't know what games you're watching, but Marvin Austin is far from a second rounder with his character concerns. I wouldn't touch him until the fifth personally.

Last time I checked Bailey doesn't play in the Big Ten, Clayborn stands out on tape where Watt to me is just an average player who has now "wow" too him.

I have to wonder if you're actually watching tape from this year, if Clayborn stands out to you. Don't get me wrong, I like the guy, but he had an off year.

Watt owns Bailey in just about every category. Pass-Rush, use of hands, motor, and has a far better bull-rush. Bailey has all the talent, but he has no burst, and isn't anywhere near as good as someone who could move like him at that size should be.

Watt isn't elite by any means, but the guy is relentless, gives excellent effort, and has an excellent work ethic. The only thing that bothers me about him is that he gets pushed around in the run game, but there really is no reason to believe he couldn't improve on that with good technique/coaching.

Each positions has some serious facepalms.

QB: TJ Yates in the top five?
RB: Ingram at 4?
WR: Baldwin at number one is beyond nuts.
OT: No Castonzo or Smith in your top 5?
DE: No Watt? No Kerrigan? But you have Bailey?
DT: Marvin Austin may be the most physically gifted DT in this draft, but is far from the best. And no Dareus at all?
OLB: Bruce Carter is injured, yet you have him ahead of Justin Houston.
ILB: Wilson is the only ILB that could be taken in the firts round, yet he is number five on your list.
CB: Chikwa is average, yet he is ahead of Jimmy Smith, pretty much the consensus number three corner.

These rankings are bad. I mean really bad. Maybe as bad as those done by BCE.

You must be forgetting that the Tarheels aren't any good. They wouldn't be close to a national championship even if they got all their suspended players back.

As you are entitled to your opinion I disagree with your rankings across the board pretty much other DE you have really missed the mark. Seems like you are more of a UNC/ACC Homer more than anything...
