Found this sort of interesting. What if Oher did fall that far down the board? Maybe even into our #34 slot?

I know.... Prisco's an idiot!


1. Matt Stafford, QB, Georgia: When he throws for the scouts, they will be in awe. There are some who think he locks on to receivers at times. But that can happen to young passers with big arms.

2. Aaron Curry, LB, Wake Forest: Think Derrick Brooks. He's a run-and-chase linebacker who has good size at 240 pounds. He might be the cleanest player in the draft, the one with the fewest flaws.

3. B.J. Raji, DT, Boston College: He's a power player who could not be blocked at the Senior Bowl. At 335 pounds, he also has good quickness.

4. Jason Smith, T, Baylor: This former tight end has great feet and plays with a nasty streak. He is 6-4, 300 pounds and has the frame to get bigger. He's a better pass blocker, but will get better for the run as he matures.

5. Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech: He is the next Larry Fitzgerald. He's big and strong. The once concern with him is his 40 time. But Fitzgerald wasn't fast either.

6. Eugene Monroe, T, Virginia: He's another tackle who is better as a pass protector than blocking for the run. Is that a bad thing?

7. Andre Smith, T, Alabama: He played left tackle at Alabama, but some scouts wonder if he's not more of a right tackle. He's the best run blocker of the three top tackles, but he has struggled with some speed rushers.

8. Mark Sanchez, QB, USC: He's accurate, poised and his arm is plenty strong. The knock on him will be that he was a one-hit wonder. Don't believe it.


9. Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State: He's a smart cover player who might not have blazing speed, but he plays fast enough. He's easily the top corner in this draft.

10. Everette Brown, LB-DE, Florida State: Think Dwight Freeney. He's short at 6-1 but has a great burst off the edge. He might even rise up this board as we go through the process.

11. Aaron Maybin, DE-OLB, Penn State: He was a defensive end at Penn State, but could also play a 3-4 outside linebacker. He isn't a big end at 6-4, 250, but he does have quickness. He could easily add 15 pounds to that frame.

12. Brian Cushing, LB, USC: I like him more than teammate Rey Maualuga because Cushing is bigger at 6-4 to 6-1. He's an aggressive player who has also played some defensive end. Can play inside or outside.

13. Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri: He's a speedy receiver who will help immediately in the return game. He has decent size at 6-1, but that's his listed height. It will be interesting to see what he measures at the combine.

14. Rey Maualuga, LB, USC: He is a prototype middle linebacker, and scouts loved that he lost some weight heading to the Senior Bowl. He was blocked at times last season -- see Oregon State game -- which has to be a concern.

15. Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois: He has good size and good coverage skills. The knock on him is that he freelances too much. That can't happen in the NFL.

16. Brian Orakpo, DE, Texas: If you saw him eat up Oklahoma left tackle Phil Loadholt, who should be a second-round pick, you'll know the pass-rush ability Orakpo possesses.

17. Alex Mack, C, California: This might seem high, but he's a top prospect at center. The value of that position isn't as great on draft day, but that's dumb. Here's a future Pro Bowl player.

18. Chris Wells, RB, Ohio State: At 6-1, 235 pounds, he is the biggest of the elite backs. But that doesn't mean he can't run away from people. His speed is plenty fast enough to get the corner.


19. Brandon Pettigrew, TE, Oklahoma State: He's 6-6, 250 pounds and he's a willing blocker to go with his receiving skills. He isn't a Kellen Winslow, but Pettigrew has good enough speed in the passing game. He is a combo tight end, and those are hard to find.

20. Peria Jerry, DT, Mississippi: He's a quick, penetrating tackle who can be quite disruptive. At 6-2, 290 pounds, he reminds me of Warren Sapp. He has that type of quickness.

21. Percy Harvin, WR, Florida: Yes, he has speed. But where does he play? He has never been a pure receiver in college. That has to concern teams. The speed will excite.

22. Knowshon Moreno, RB, Georgia: At 5-11, 210 pounds, the concern is his size. But he has that ability to make people miss. That can't be taught. He isn't a burner, but he's fast enough. He averaged 5.5 per rush at Georgia.

23. LeSean McCoy, RB, Pittsburgh: He's similar to Moreno, though not quite as fast. McCoy averaged 4.8 per rush at Pitt. He has great ability to make people miss.

24. Clint Sintim, LB, Virginia: At 6-3, 255 pounds, he is a big linebacker who is a perfect fit for a 3-4 team. He plays hard all the time. The one knock on him would be coverage skills, but in a 3-4 he won't have to do much of that.

25. James Laurinaitis, LB, Ohio State: He has good size at 6-3, 245 pounds, but he doesn't play that big. He's smart and instinctive but has he peaked. I think he's a lot like Buffalo's Paul Posluszny.

26. Sean Smith, CB-S, Utah: He can play corner or safety and I think he'd be an All-Pro at the latter. When you watched Utah play, he was all over the field. I rank him higher than most; this is a kid I think will move up into the first round.

27. Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU: He has the frame teams want in a pure defensive end, a guy who can play the run and the pass. At 6-5, 290 pounds, he can anchor against the run. In 2006, he had 10 sacks as a sophomore, but only eight the last two seasons when teams focused on him. It won't be easy to do that on the next level. Can also bulk up and play tackle.

28. Sen'Derrick Marks, DT, Auburn: This might seem high, but I love this kid. He plays tough. He plays hard. He's a perfect Tampa-2 defensive tackle, smallish but quick.

29. Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Maryland: At 6-3, 205 pounds, he is a big receiver who has good speed. If he clocks a good time at his workouts, he will move up this board.

30. Larry English, DE-OLB. Northern Illinois: He was a defensive end in college, but will have to move to linebacker in a 3-4 scheme on the next level. At 6-3, 255 pounds, he might be too small to play as an every-down end. He did dominate in college with 30 sacks the past three seasons.

31. Michael Oher, T, Mississippi: He has dropped a bunch in the minds of some scouts because they don't think he works hard enough and he has trouble with speed rushers. I still think there's talent there, but he might not be as good as advertised.

32. Fili Moala, DT, USC: Before the season, there was talk he could be a top 10 pick. But he didn't play as well in 2008. That has some scouts concerned. But others think he will be a force in the league. I tend to agree, which is why he's on this list.

8. Mark Sanchez, QB, USC: He's accurate, poised and his arm is plenty strong. The knock on him will be that he was a one-hit wonder. Don't believe it.

To me if a QB is ranked in the top ten he'll probably go top five. Holy Pioli! What will the regime do?

Lets hope he drafts better than he assembles a coaching staff.

Loadholdt will be lucky to go in the 5th, let alone the 2nd.

Bucky Brooks has him as the 10th best tackle prospect in this draft and I think that's high.

Scott Wright has him rated 7th.

I'm betting that a couple of guys (Jomon Meredith, Troy Kropog) leap frogged him in the combine workouts today, if not a couple of others.

Loadholt looked slow and clumsy.

That's pretty much how I appear on Chiefsplanet.

I wonder what the reaction would be if we stood pat at 3 and took Raji.

I had Kropog rated higher anyway. I like the guy. And I agree Loadholt, while looking in good shape, seemed stiff and a bit clumbsy.

If we're not taking Stafford or Sanchez (and since it's not my $100,000,000 in 2 DT's) I wouldn't be too pissed off about it.

But the only way I don't want us taking Stafford or Sanchez is because they went 1-2.

He had a sprained knee against Oregon State. And the whole USC team got blocked that game. Soooooo... I guess Prisco just might be a moron.

He had a sprained knee against Oregon State.

He sprained it in the second half of the game (4th quarter, IIRC). He was pretty much a non-factor during the first half.
