    Is Ellis McCarthy staying in school ? Is Bret Hundley a little over rated on this list ? Do you really think the Giants would take Collins over Peat or one of the Flowers ? Isn’t taking a RB below # 20 now a “No-No ?” Do the Jets really want the potential problems with Winston ? Is Shelton really better than Goldman ?

    Obviously the Eagles want a more mobile QB but at 20 no chance of Mariota, Winston is a PR nightmare. Do they go for the best CB? Who is the best for them?

    Wr strong seems to only work outside the numbers and shows no interest in blocking.

    Why would bb bother with such a limited player.

    How did you determine the player positions? Bud Dupree will be a 4-3 DE before Randy Gregory will and neither will play DL in a 3-4. Gregory, provided there are no medical concerns, will be the best 3-4 OLB in this draft whereas Dupree could be the best pass rushing 4-3 RDE.

      Sherrane: As much as possible we base our positions on what we hear NFL teams are thinking about the different players; Gregory is certainly getting looks as a 3-4 OLB but 4-3 teams are pondering if he can put on enough weight to play DE in that scheme as he has the frame to get considerably bigger. Meanwhile, Dupree would appear to be better suited to play a 4-3 DE right now, but some 3-4 teams are looking at him as a possible OLB in that scheme because of his length and quickness. Of course, nobody is looking at either as a down 3-4 DE.

      DUPREE has a strong tendency to shy away from contact. There is no way he playes DE in the NFL unless purely as a pass rush sub-pakcage guy. I like ZA’DARUS SMITH a lot more as all around player with excellent pass-rush skills.

    If Scherff is still on the board, I don’t think they would pass over him to select Peat. Their greatest need along the OL is at LOG followed by tackle. Scherff could fill the hole at OG, while also potentially possessing the skills to play LOT if Kalil continues to struggle.

      Like your thinking. SCHERFF could be another GALLERY and OG might be his best position. HIs versatility would help the VIKES.

      Spencer: We do not in fact publish a guide ourselves; we do usually put out a pre-season college football draft guide in the fall. There are a number of good guides out there. The one that I would get if I was getting one would be Frank Coyle’s Draft Digest. Lots of well written analysis. Good luck with it.
