Default Mike Mayock's Position Rankings 1/24

Thought this was interesting, a couple of surprises in his rankings. I like Mayock a lot and respect his opinions on players.


The 2012 NFL Draft may be three months away, but the evaluation process is already in full swing. NFL draft guru Mike Mayock provides his early prospect rankings at each position. These rankings will be regularly updated in the coming months, but here is where things stand on the week of the Senior Bowl:

Quarterback

1. Andrew Luck, Stanford
2. Robert Griffin III, Baylor
3. Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M

It's far too early in the process to apply rankings after the top three quarterbacks, but there are plenty of other signal-callers to keep an eye on. Some will be easier to evaluate than others:

Trust the process:

Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma State
Nick Foles, Arizona
Brock Osweiler, Arizona State
Kirk Cousins, Michigan State
Ryan Lindley, San Diego State

Figure them out:

Russell Wilson, Wisconsin
Kellen Moore, Boise State

Running Back

1. Trent Richardson, Alabama
2. David Wilson, Virginia Tech
3. Lamar Miller, Miami (FL)
4. Doug Martin, Boise State
5. LaMichael James, Oregon

Wide Receiver

1. Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State
2. Michael Floyd, Notre Dame
3. Kendall Wright, Baylor
4. Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina
5. Chris Givens, Wake Forest

Tight End

1. Dwayne Allen, Clemson
2. Coby Fleener, Stanford
3. Orson Charles, Georgia
4. Ladarius Green, Louisiana-Lafayette
5. Michael Egnew, Missouri
Linemen make early impression


Tackle

1. Riley Reiff, Iowa
2. Matt Kalil, USC
3. Jonathan Martin, Stanford
4. Mike Adams, Ohio State
T-5. James Brown, Troy
T-5. Zebrie Sanders, Florida State

Interior Offensive Lineman

1. David DeCastro, Stanford
2. Peter Konz, Wisconsin
3. Kevin Zeitler, Wisconsin
4. Cordy Glenn, Georgia
5. Kelechi Osemele, Iowa State

Defensive End

1. Quinton Coples, North Carolina
2. Melvin Ingram, South Carolina
3. Whitney Mercilus, Illinois
4. Nick Perry, USC
T-5. Chandler Jones, Syracuse
T-5. Andre Branch, Clemson

Defensive Tackle

1. Devon Still, Penn State
2. Jerel Worthy, Michigan State
3. Michael Brockers, LSU
4. Brandon Thompson, Clemson
T-5. Fletcher Cox, Mississippi State
T-5. Dontari Poe, Memphis

Linebacker

1. Courtney Upshaw, Alabama
2. Luke Kuechly, Boston College
3. Dont'a Hightower, Alabama
4. Zach Brown, North Carolina
5. Vontaze Burfict, Arizona State

Cornerback

1. Morris Claiborne, LSU
2. Janoris Jenkins, North Alabama
3. Alfonzo Dennard, Nebraska
4. Leonard Johnson, Iowa State
5. Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama

Safety

1. Mark Barron, Alabama
2. Harrison Smith, Notre Dame
3. George Iloka, Boise State
4. Markelle Martin, Oklahoma State
T-5. Janzen Jackson, McNeese State
T-5. Antonio Allen, South Carolina

His cornerback ranking are interesting.

I have mocked us taking Jenkins at the end of the first round. I think he is really a good player with #1 potential but his character concerns will probably be an issue.

If Wright is off the board I'd want us to take him over a guy like Sanu. I think a good WR can be had in rd. 2.

If Kirkpatrick fell to us I wouldn't have any reservations about taking him either.

I can see why he has kirkpatrick rated 5th though. He's not physical at all.

I think his list will change dramatically after Saturday & it shouldn't but he is stretched with his schedule. Like who could forget his commentary when Texans beat Bengals 1st rd. That was epic

Are you sure about that?
