    CJ Mosely??

  2. Hose says:

    why is everyone so gung-ho about taking running backs, they don’t last, they take too many hits, draft linemen win the battle in the trenches and youll see success, especially don’t take de’anthony Thomas, hes just another trindin holliday, good pick for a late round but don’t waste a first on someone who will only play special teams

  3. Corey says:

    I could easily see the Pats try and double dip for the Defensive Line, with a DT in the first and a DE/DL in the second. Unless a blue chip TE drops to them. Third round looks like a CB will be available. And, of course, Jeremy Gallon in the 6th :P

  4. Matt says:

    The Patriots need help on defense they might pick Khalil Mack who can stop the run and cause some forced fumbles, or Ra’Shede Hageman, who can also stop the run while getting them some sacks and tackles. The Patriots could have some interest in Louis Nix III, an insurance for Vince Wilfork who is out for the season with a torn right Achilles’ tendon, Louis Nix III brings some beef to the defensive line. If the Patriots want to improve the offense they might get a Tight End for an insurance in case of Rob Gronkowski, like Jace Amaro who plays just like Gronk.

  5. caleb says:

    bishop sankey??

  6. Mr scout says:

    I strongly believe that a player like Greg hickman from Fiu is a late first round slepper and a possible patriots pick watch. he is a monster force on run support

  7. charles says:

    why r their so many dang popups on this site??

  8. trent says:

    James, can you please add a date to this webpage? It would be nice to now how recent the rankings are. Thanks.

  9. John Courtney says:

    I am wondering now that the 2013 college season is under way if this is still your list you will stick too. I looked at the QB’s you have and see no mention of Aaron Murray on it. He is in his 4 th year at Georgia, plays in the ACC the toughest conference in college football,is a winner and a throw first run if he has too QB. He is now #2 in touchdown throws in ACC with 102 and should be 1st by years end and has over 11121 yards passing so far and didn’t even make your list. WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT??? Not tall enough for you? QB’s that can throw like that and win like that don’t have to be 6’4″ like Brady but can be 6’0″ like Brees and win.
    I followed all your mock picks last year but you lost all credability with this list.

    • Mitch says:

      John you are aware that Murray doesn’t play for an ACC team, right? Georgia is in the SEC. If anyone has lost credibility it’s you.

      • John Courtney says:

        Mitch you are correct. Dumb on my part, but he still belongs on the list and would be a good pick for a team that uses pocket passer in their system.
        The list shows #22 Jace Amaro as TE for Texas A&M. He is a TE for Texas Tech.

  10. Justin says:

    Ka’Deem Carey is missing. Also, De’Anthony Thomas should be in the Top 32. I’ve never seen someone who was LITERALLY a threat to score every time he touches the ball. You hear people say that about other players, but it’s not true. With Thomas, it’s absolutely true.

  11. Jagsman says:

    kinda curious why Logan thomas is listed as a top 32 player. he doesnt play to his talent and doesnt seem like a very good qb prospect.

  12. Mark says:

    Kevin Hogan and Manziel will not go in the 2014 draft with only 2 years experience!Will be NFL suicide…

  13. Kevin says:

    If Tyler Russell of (Mississippi State) has break out year, does he make the list?

  14. justin says:

    it would be awsome if rashede hageman was a top 10 pick, when was the last time minnesota produced a top ten pick? its a pretty lofty prediction, he was only honorable mention all big ten last year, not like he was 1st team big ten or all american, he had 35 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss and 6 sacks last year as a DT, so if he has say 50 tackles, 11 tackles for loss and 9 sacks as a DT next year would that be good enough for first round or top 10?

  15. Jerry LoTempio says:

    If we get Hopkins and Bailey this year, and than Coleman next year, we would have the best receiving core in the NFL. I think Coleman has size, speed, ability, and potential to be the next Calvin Johnson!!!

  16. Alex says:

    Sunseri, shouldn’t be anywhere near the list. He was a liability in coverage, and currently projects as a backup SS, and core special teamer IMO.

  17. J H TARBORO says:

    Kent State Dri Archer is Tavon Austin part 2 5’8″ freak athlete! only a JR.

  18. john says:

    Geez, how many great OL has Texas A&M had recently. Some awesome recruiting and, I assume, good developmental coaches

  19. Allan says:

    If you haven’t seen Bridgewater play yet, you need to. He’s a football savant.

  20. jim says:

    How close was Michael Campanaro to making your list?

    • john says:

      Campanaro will go in the first two rounds. He has the (safe) factor that GM’s look for. Slots value is rising every year

  21. charles says:

    why isn’t manziel higher? and no way mettenburger is a narrow miss he was terrible last year

    • john says:

      Manziel isn’t higher because these are pro prospects, not all American high school or college

    • Kevin says:

      Also, the SEC defensive coordinators will not overlook him this year. He slapped them in the mouth last year, and it left a mark.

  22. mastermind says:

    Your list looks good other than Clinton Dix should be at least be no lower than # 4 Clinton Dix is much more than the Stat on tackles reveals. Dix plays his position. Like a pro and for a sophomore seldom makes mistakes. Just take a look at SEC Championship Game aganist the Bulldogs and most recently the game vs Notre Dame…….Notre Dames Tightened Iffert was a non factor due to Clinton Dix tackleing him whenever he touched the Ball …..Dix almost single handily nutralized Iffert resulting in him being a nonfactor in the game.

  23. Bob Devitt says:

    What do the ‘*’ stand for?
