    List all the players that are worth 1st, 2nd, and 3rd round grades at the following positions: RB/OL/S/CB/DT/DE/LB and then we can make different mock scenarios depending on which position we take in each round.

    RB
    1-Peterson/Lynch
    2-Bush/Hunt
    3-Irons

    OT
    1-Thomas/Gaither/Brown
    2-Staley
    3-

    OG
    1-Blalock
    2
    3

    S
    1-Landry/Nelson/Griffin
    2-Meriweather/Weddle
    3-Johnson

    CB
    1-Revis/Hall
    2-Houston/Hughes/Bennett/Ross/McCauley
    3-

    DT
    1-Branch/Akoye/Pitcock
    2-Tyler/Harrell
    3-Brown

    DE
    1-Adams/Anderson/Moses
    2-Johnson/Moss/Abiamiri
    3-Crowder/Spencer/Alama-Francis

    LB
    1-Willis/Timmons/Posluszney/Beason
    2-Alexander/Everett
    3-Burgess

    Add,switch,subtract players as you see fit...I didn't add all the players, but you get the idea.

    Katstranostra has beason as a first round guy. I'd think twice about under rating Beason. Might wanna add the gaurd prospects too a couple of them will go day one. There are a couple of nasty gaurds out there.

    Top of round two is going to be a very hard choice between the LB and the corners.

    Got no rep in the bank to give ya...but good job on the lists.

    Very interesting idea. I think it's a little premature in the offseason to be doing this kind of thing and I haven't gotten a good enough look at a lot of these guys yet, but for the sake of playing along here's my list as of now in terms of where I think guys will end up being picked:

    QBs
    1st - JaMarcus Russell, Brady Quinn, Brian Brohm (if he declares)
    2nd - Troy Smith (could sneak into late 1st but I doubt it at this point)
    3rd - Drew Stanton, Kevin Kolb
    Borderline 1st Day - Trent Edwards, John Beck, or someone else that rises up boards

    RBs
    1st - Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch
    2nd - Michael Bush
    3rd - Kenny Irons, Tony Hunt
    Borderline 1st Day - Gary Russell, Kolby Smith

    FBs
    3rd - Brian Leonard

    WRs
    1st - Calvin Johnson, Dwayne Jarrett, Sidney Rice, Ted Ginn (not sure I like him here but I think someone will take him)
    2nd - Jeff Samardzija (baseball commitment will dictate draft position), Dwayne Bowe, Robert Meachem
    3rd - Craig Davis, Paul Williams, Anthony Gonzalez
    Borderline 1st Day - Johnnie Lee Higgins (his 40 time likely will determine his placement)

    TEs
    2nd - Zach Miller, Greg Olsen

    OTs
    1st - Joe Thomas, Levi Brown
    2nd - Jared Gaither, Joe Staley, Ryan Harris
    3rd - Arron Sears, Tony Ugoh (I think both are a better fit at OG)

    OGs
    1st - Justin Blalock
    2nd - Ben Grubbs, Josh Beekman
    3rd - Manuel Ramirez, Tim Duckworth
    Borderline 1st Day - Marshal Yanda

    OCs
    2nd - Ryan Kalil
    3rd - Doug Datish

    DEs
    1st - Gaines Adams, Jamaal Anderson, Quentin Moses
    2nd - Charles Johnson, Adam Carriker, Victor Abiamiri, LaMarr Woodley (could push into the 1st as a 3-4 OLB)
    3rd - Ray McDonald, Anthony Spencer, Dan Bazuin, Tim Crowder
    Borderline 1st Day - Jay Moore, Baraka Atkins, Ikaika Alama-Francis

    DTs
    1st - Alan Branch, Amobi Okoye
    2nd - Quinn Pitcock, DeMarcus Tyler
    3rd - Brandon Mebane, Kareem Brown, Justin Harrell
    Borderline 1st Day - Marcus Thomas, Turk McBride

    LBs
    1st - Patrick Willis, Paul Poslusny, Lawrence Timmons
    2nd - Jon Beason, Rufus Alexander, Earl Everett, Buster Davis, David Harris, H.B. Blades
    3rd - Tony Taylor, Justin Durant, Stewart Bradley, Anthony Waters, Desmond Bishop
    Borderline 1st Day - KaMichael Hall, Juwan Simpson

    CBs
    1st - Leon Hall, Darelle Revis, Marcus McCauley
    2nd - Chris Houston, Aaron Ross, Fred Bennett, Daymeion Hughes
    3rd - Josh Wilson
    Borderline 1st Day - Jonathan Wade, Eric Wright, Tarell Brown

    S
    1st - LaRon Landry, Reggie Nelson, Michael Griffin
    2nd - Brandon Meriweather, Eric Weddle
    3rd - Tom Zbikowski, John Wendling
    Borderline 1st Day - Michael Johnson, Aaron Rouse

    BTW yes I realize I only have 26 1st rounders listed, 31 2nd rounders, etc. I'll leave some room for other guys to emerge after the Combine.

    there's the nasty garuds. Nice post MK can't argue with any of those. What it reads to me....we ain't getting a left tackle this year unless it is a move up or we take a prospect late day two. I would be interested in your take on Heyer of Maryland and the BYU guy as one of those guys ? Beerlover likes the Florida ST guy playing this weekend as a day two prospect. Mario Henderson ? Know your busy. Just interested in what you think.

    I really banged on Jordan Palmer. I saw him in the one game he was absolutly horrible. I bet he is one of those guys that moves up the boards. He is a pure pocket passer. After Leftwich, I gotta feeling the statue guys are gointg to find it tougher to make a squad.

    Unfortunately I haven't studied offensive players a whole lot, I've just seen some of them in the process of evaluating defensive players, but I agree I don't see them getting a LT this year, I think the are sold on Spencer being their LT assuming he recovers from his injury. I think at some point they'll look for another OT that can be their swing guy (at least I hope they do, I don't want Ephraim Salaam as our 1st option if someone gets hurt), I've seen a little of Brandon Frye (Virginia Tech) and I think he'd be a decent fit as a 2nd day pick. Joe Staley is obviously very athletic but I haven't seen a whole lot of him yet either to comment on his overall talent, and as of now it sounds like he'll be a 2nd round pick so I don't know that we'd take one that high. As for interior linemen (I think the bigger weakness, again assuming Spencer returns), I've seen a lot of Ben Grubbs (LG for Auburn) and like him a lot, I saw Josh Beekman (Boston College) some and liked him, but I think if anything they'll look to address any urgent OLine problems in free agency and look for depth along OLine in the draft.
