Two more days! That is it until all this hard work either makes me look like a genius or a fool. Despite Deflategate being rehashed this week, I am still excited for the draft and cannot wait to see who goes where and what kind of surprises we are in store for. I have watched more prospects this year than I ever have before and have my favorites ranging from elite prospects all the way to some undrafted guys who might surprise everyone and make their respective teams. Today, I give you my rankings of the top 150 players that I watched throughout this draft process.
There are a few things in this list that I assume will get a reaction out of people. The first is the QB rankings. Despite the fact that we are almost guaranteed now that Qb’s are going to be drafted 1 and 2 and as many as 4 might go in the first round, I did not give a 1st round grade to any Quarterback this year. I think the other thing that will stick out is my Tackle rankings. Guys that I am higher on seem lower in most other circles while I seem lower on some that others have ranked higher. I am sure there are other names and where I have them ranked will create some reactions, both positively and negatively. I look forward to reading all of your thoughts.
