    Every player on the board has been scouted through at least 2 games, most through 4. The grades I gave them are relative to prospects from the past, it helps me rank them easier. I have notes on all these players, plus more. If you you're curious about any of the reports, just ask. I spent considerably more time on the board than on the mock draft, knowing full well most of you will be naturally drawn to the mock draft. We talk about accountability on this board, this is what I want to be held accountable for. Read away.

    You put a lot of time into that over the last few months. An enjoyable mock and big board.

    Good job 24.

    It is very easy to re-gurgitate what the wankers at ESPN spout and go with group think, but good to see you have put your own opinions into your big board and not just relied on what others say.

    People easily forget how much the actual draft doesn't resemble what the Kipers of the world mock each year.

    How many people had Tyson Alualau going in the top 10 picks last year?

    WOW, nice work!!! I agree its nice to see another opinion that is a bit different from the standard list of players we see.

    I think you have Dareus too low, he should be in the 8s. 7.9 seems too low. I also think Peterson is better than Prince. You have to remember that the SEC is the closest to playing in the NFL college kids get, so being a stud in SEC adds to value. Which is why Dareus is always higher than Quinn and Peterson is higher than Prince when you look at boards across the country.

    Quinn's film looks great but he didnt play against the same O-lines as Dareus. And Peterson had to cover Wrs like Green & Jones, while Prince did not.
