Re: Post Combine Positional Rankings

Sweet site and thanks for the analysis darnik!

I would put Lefevour over Pike, McCoy and Tebow. Any reason are not sold on him yet?

Re: Post Combine Positional Rankings

I like Clausen ahead of Pike at QB. I would Gerhart as 4 at RB instead of Hardesty. At WR, I like 1. Bryant, 2. Tate, 3. Benn, 4. Williams, 5. Demaryius Thomas. Not sure who I would leave out of the top 5 at TE, but Gronkowski would be up there. Agree 100% at OT. At G, I would have guys like Petrus, Johnson, and Saffold ahead of Brandon Carter. At DT, I would have Williams 3 and Price 4 with Cody as 5. I think Washington is a better OLB in the NFL and would have Spoon, Kindle, Bowman, Norwood, Washington. I would have Berry as the top S at either position.

Thank You.

I'm not really sold on any of these QB's. I actually had Pike #1 for quite awhile, but the Senior Bowl and Combine caused me to bump him down a spot. I still like his chances at the next level.

I don't see a clear distinction between any of the QB's. They all have their own issues and question marks.

Hardesty has really grown on me throughout the year.

The tight ends are pretty close in my mind, and I like a lot of them. Here's how I rank them overall, this shows I don't see a large margin from one to the next, especially Pitta, Dickson, Hernandez, and Gronkowski. Pitta and Gresham have the impressive resumes, and Dickerson is a kid I've been watching since he was a sophomore in high school. He blew up at the combine, and really has a huge upside. Gronkowski has the back issues (never good), and Hernandez is a little smaller than advertised.

41. Jermaine Gresham, TE, 6-6, 261, Oklahoma

50. Dorin Dickerson, TE/FB, 6-1, 226, Pitt

68. Dennis Pitta, TE, 6-5, 250, Brigham Young

69. Ed Dickson, TE, 6-5, 240, Oregon

70. Aaron Hernandez, TE, 6-3, 255, Florida*

73. Rob Gronkowski, TE, 6-6, 260, Arizona*

93. Anthony McCoy, TE, 6-5, 255, Southern California

Re: Post Combine Positional Rankings

I just hope we get some good players. We are limited again in how many picks we have?

I would not mind seeing a draft day trade of our 1st for several picks in rounds 2 to 4.

Absolutely. They all have big Qs. I see Pike benefiting from a team that can afford to draft him and work with him on his footwork and technique while getting him preseason work taking snaps from under center and without the open spread Cincy runs. Then again, I think all QBs would benefit from not being thrown into the fire, but I see Pike as a little more of a project than Bradford or Clausen.

From watching Hardesty in the SEC, he seems to have good RB instincts in seeing the hole, and setting up and following his blocks.

I like the overall spots for the TEs. I agree that their value is in the early middle rounds.

19. Ryan Perrilloux, 6-3, 222, Jacksonville State

I was wondering what happened to him. Possible sleeper?
