OK, the draft is fast approaching, lets see how everyone's big board is shaping up. First, lets assume the following players are off the board...

QB - Cam Newton, Blaine Gabbert
WR - AJ Green
DT - Nick Fairley, Marcell Dareus
DE - Robert Quinn
LB - Von Miller
CB - Patrick Peterson

That is 8 off the board, so you need to rank your top 5 cause one will have to be there. Obvious choices are:

RB - Mark Ingram
WR - Julio Jones
OT - Tyron Smith, Anthony Castano, Nate Solder
DE - Da'Quan Bowers, Cameron Jordan, JJ Watt, Ryan Kerrigan
LB - Akeem Ayers
CB - Prince Amukamara, Jimmy Smith, Brandon Harris

Feel free to add others to your top 5 list. Mine as of this point is:

1) CB Prince Amukamara - need and value propel him to the top
2) WR Julio Jones - top ten value from talent standpoint
3) OT Tyron Smith - gotta put one of the OTs on the board
4) DE Da'Quan Bowers - big upside, hardest one to peg on my board
5) DE Cameron Jordan - like his versitility and althleticism

OK I'll bite. Assuming the following players are off the board...

QB - Cam Newton, Blaine Gabbert
WR - AJ Green
DT - Nick Fairley, Marcell Dareus
DE - Robert Quinn
LB - Von Miller
CB - Patrick Peterson

It's a fair assumption that I feel most would agree on.

My top 5 would be...

CB - Prince Amukamara
WR - Julio Jones
DE - Aldon Smith, JJ Watt, Cameron Jordan

Take the most talented player--no sense in drafting for need when there won't even be a 2011 season. :lol: #-o :-({|=

As the entire free world has to know by now, I do not like a single 1 of the OT's this year. So Pablo, No you DO NOT have to have at least 1 on your list. LOL. I would just as soon redraft Joey Harrington ( UGGGGGHHH ) than to take an OT this year.

Also, #13 overall is far too big of a risk to take on Bowers. Let someone else draft a knee that is already 80 years old.


1. Prince Amukamara ----- Darell Revis Comparison has me drooling.
2. Cameron Jordan ------- I rank him lower than Prince only because of degree of need.
3. Mark Ingram ----------- Add him to Calvin and Best and he would put the Boom in Click, Click, BOOM :!:
4. Julio Jones ------------ Add him to Calvin and Best and he would stretch the defense to the breaking point.
5. Ryan Kerrigan --------- He has been compared to Jared Allen. I could handle that.

The only two that I would change around is drop Jones down to #5, slide the others up one notch, and change #5 to JJ Watt over Jordan, but it's really just a crapshoot with those two guys.

Based on the eight you have off the board, my rankings would be:
1) CB Prince Amukamara
2) WR Julio Jones
3) DE Cameron Jordan
4) OT Tyron Smith
5) DE Justin Houston - Some will say huge reach on this one, but I think this guy is going to be a big time NFL pass rusher. He's played OLB, he's played DE and he's been proficient at getting to the QB at either spot.

I would lay off any OT but Tyron Smith. He may be raw, but he has great athletic talent and could become a great NFL tackle, either on the left or right side.

I wouldn't touch Da'Quan Bowers. His knee concerns me, and his one year wonder factor is a big cause for concern.

I leave Mark Ingram off this list because I truly don't think he's going to be a bigtime NFL back. I could be wrong, Lord knows I've been before, but it's just how I feel about him.

5) I may consider Leshoure before I looked at Smith, Cameron Jordan, or Ayers.

1. prince amukamara
2. akeem ayers
3. julio jones
4. da'quan bowers
5. mike pouncey

I'd like to see the Lions trade back a few spots and get Mike Pouncey especially if Amukamara or Ayers is gone.

I could definitely agree with the Mike Pouncey pick if it were to come to that. I wouldn't want to pick him at 13, but you'd have to be careful not to drop too far because I could see him going anywhere from 16-23. I'm not saying that the teams that currently inhabit those picks would take him, but a team could jump up/drop down to try to get him. I think he'd be just as valuable a selection as a D-Lineman would.
