    I would pass on CJ at our 1st round pick, rather trade down and take advantage of another team and draft Meachem/Bowe/Rice.

    yes.

    i just think that list needs adjusting for our team.

    i also found it hard to follow 50 players because he didn't list where each "set/group" would be looked at. like what round he would have them at the top of his board for. There were 3rd round guys in the top 15, 1st round guys past 35. It was a bit confusing for me.

    I also can't believe that you didn't even list Meachem or Revis or Cason on your board. Those are 3 top players who would start ASAP on our team. Meachem is an AJ clone. Revis and Cason will battle for first CB/DB taken.

    I'm not certain any of them are coming out. I tried to only list juniors who I've heard are leaning towards going pro. The list gets longer as we approach the draft, I generally have 100 players on my board by then.

    The board isn't set by round. Its an order of preference. Last year, for instance, we got my #3 (Mario), my #9 (DeMeco) and my #18 (Winston) in the first three rounds.

    This early in the cycle, I focus exclusively on who I prefer. Later on, people will move a little as it starts to become clear that NFL teams are over or under-rating them. However, it will always reflect a good deal of my own opinion. DeMeco is a perfect example of this. No one had him as a Top 10 talent - so some folks thought I was crazy to list him #9. It now appears I may have underrated his talent a bit.

    #9 has always been my favorite, and lucky number. I never noticed Demeco was your #9 last year. Im thinking we should draft your #9 this year too. Joe Staley in the second round please.

    I think the NFL is going to eat Staley's lunch. We'll see what he lifts. Looks like a faster weaker Wand to me. I was not impressed. At least you listed a couple Sarge. That puts you ahead of the heard in here in my book.

    To YoungTexanFan, I applaud you for making the effort to provide a comment next to each player, but I must take exception with your view on LSU DT Glen Dorsey. This guy does NOT take plays off. He's a beast with an intensity that doesn't quit. Even LSU head coach Les Miles said last week in an interview that the guy puts his heart into every play.

    The guy is constantly double teamed and still can blow up running plays and get push into the backfield. He might be viewed as undersized, but he has great technique, leverage, quickness and gets off the ball well. Not saying he can't improve, but there's no questioning his heart, his effort or his athletic ability. He played his way into being a likely first round pick and this was his first year starting. The two guys he had to play behind last year are both on NFL rosters.

    I was just making my observations based on the three games I watched this year. Granted, I wasn't specificly looking for him...but he didn't really make me find him either. That is good for a DB, but not a DT. He disappeared way too much for my liking. Maybe just a lack of hype, and I guess I'll review some TiVo'ed tape later. I could very well be wrong, but I do think Bowe is a 1st round guy, and not many people even have him top 50 yet. Landry will slide though, but not too far. There are just some other, previous LSU d-linemen who I would have taken before Dorsey based on the play I saw this year, but I will study him more...later. He is on my big board though.
