Sanu behind Givens, Wright and a guy coming off a torn ACL? come on man

Asteinebach 04-24-2012 09:12 AM

I got beef with the WR rankings too. Stephen Hill is the best WR in this class. I don't expect to change popular opinion here, but putting Randle, Wright, and Alshon Jeffrey over him is disgraceful.

Master Exploder 04-24-2012 09:17 AM

The WR rankings look fine to me.

Wootylicous 04-24-2012 09:25 AM

Ron Brooks will be a steal. also Austin Davis should be higher

Donnie D 04-24-2012 09:31 AM

why do you have Nick Foles so high? i dont think hes even a Day 2 pick. same question about Orson Charles. i would take both Dwayne Allen and Ladarius Green over him.

you dont think Brian Quick and A.J. Jenkins should be in the top 10?

Dan_Steele 04-24-2012 10:02 AM

I like that you are high on Cyrus Gray. I've seen a lot of rankings with him having a 6-7 round grade, if not undrafted. I'm big on him too, looks like a bigger Arian Foster to me, runs hard, falls forward, reads gaps well. I think this kid has a future as a starter.

A bit confused as to why you have Quinton Coples ranked as a DT??

The only beef I have with the receiver rankings is Sanu not being lower. Aj Jenkins and TY Hilton I would have rated higher.

But overall man I really like it, nicely done

I would possibly switch Sanu and Wright and put Quick at 10, but it's not a big difference to me. 1-8 is exactly how I would have ranked them, though I would consider putting Hill over Randle also.

Me too. Not like I'm rooting for the kid to fail. And like I said, the Rams will probably draft him.

Dwight Bentley is criminally underrated here. I recommend you rethink that.
