The Top 64
Finally, below is a look at our updated rankings of the top 64 prospects for the 2009 NFL draft. The inclusion of underclassmen is never a pleasant discussion. College teams obviously want their players -- particularly the premier talents -- to stay put, and NFL teams get upset because their scouts catch flak while visiting schools throughout the fall. Unfortunately, early departures are a reality in today's NFL draft process. Instead of including some prospects we hear have "interest" in coming out early, we've decided to set specific parameters. Between now and the official decision date in mid-January, we will include all eligible underclassmen (three years out of high school) whom we consider to be first-day (Rounds 1 and 2) material.

Boy with our needs and where we'll end up drafting (assuming we don't trade up or down), looks like the Michael Johnson v Brian Orakpo debates will be on.

Suppose Oher could also be a possibility.

wow now mecca can come in and say mcshay is a dumbass. cuz stafford WILL definately grade out higher than ANY player in last years draft. its funny how a month ago it was sanchez(who had done nothing) now its stafford. LOL

All paid opinions are experts and their word is the truth. :spock:

A couple of reasons why:

1) Smith over Oher is a reach. Britton over Oher is absolute fucktardery
2) There is no way Harvin will grade out better than Heyward-Bey. He's going to kill the combine
3) Mays will go in the top 12
4) 4 centers are not going in the first two rounds
5) Malcom Jenkins will be lucky to go in the top 10.
6) Jason Smith and Jamon Meredith will have top 25 grades

not what i'm saying. just that these 2 assholes been talking alot of shit lately. ANYTHING negative to try to offset anything positive. I honestly think they come up with bad shit and HOPE it happens so they can get on and scream how right they were for weeks

wow .... what the hell happened to Oher


looks like he really blew it by not coming out last year

McShay is pretty much a douche. Scott Wright having Bradford in there was suprising.

Nothing happened.

This is the same guy who had Mike Jenkins, Malcom Kelly, and Brian Brohm as top 15 picks in February of last year.

Not to mention Calais Campbell and Mario Manningham in the top 20

please... these projections are a crap shoot at this point in the college football season. not that big of a deal

Todd McShay is a guy who routinely gets made fun of by other draft guys.....even Mel Kiper pokes fun at him...

Todd will move his board for no other reason than the other guys did the same thing...

'Hamas' Jenkins
11-11-2008, 05:45 PM
If you want good draft projections go to Mike Mayock and Scott Wright.

Sam Bradford???? no.2 ..........

ROFL

System qb.

He's no Matt Ryan or Stafford.

Doesn't have a big arm.
