Default Big Board and Rankings - Poz51 (Pre-Com. Top 100 +)

This is my current, pre-combine big board, included is a numerical ranking system I have been working on and refining, as well as a grade/draft position chart for how the grades translate into where in the draft I fell they could/should go. Grade is based on position, not positional value
For example for quarterbacks I use accuracy (ball placement, timing, etc.), intangibles (leadership, anticipation, football IQ, etc.), mobility (not just elusiveness out of the pocket, pocket awareness, ability to slide/maneuver in the pocket, etc.), arm strength (can they make the throws in time, can they gun it into a tight window if needed) and size (not only height, but weight, ability to withstand an NFL pounding). So, for example, although Andrew Luck does not have John Elways arm, he can make all the throws, so even though he is not get 100% in that category, he is close enough that he gets bonus points in the intangibles category to make his rating a 100 overall. Griffin on the other hand I have lacking just a little bit in size and similarly to my feelings on Colt McCoy pre-draft, I question his ability to with stand an NFL pounding so he loses points there.
I have only given out three 100 grades, N. Suh, J. Peppers and now A. Luck, its a grade I only give to players I would bet serious considerations that they make the Hall of Fame.
Included are draft stock thoughts, and serious considerations not related to the attributes (strengths and weakness) on the football field. I have only made it through so many prospects at this point, but here is my top 100 + prospects for the 2012 draft. Have at it, this is my first attempt at this system, I am sure I missed plenty... All feedback is accepted, and as usual, I will respond when I can.

Key:
(+) draft stock ascending.
(-) draft stock descending.
(=) draft stock neutral.
(Off) Off the field issues that need to be addressed.
(On) On the field issues that need to be addressed.
(M) Medical issues that need to be addressed.
(Heart?) Issues relating to the desire to be a football player and work ethic.
(Age) Age is a factor when considering the prospect and his future potential.
(S) Size is a factor when considering this prospect.

Grading Scale:
Hall of Fame: 100
Top 5: 95-100
Top 10: 91-94
Top 20: 88-90
