With several more weeks to go before the draft, free agency on the horizon, and countless pro-days to analyze, this list will be changing several times over.
I like how he indicated the changes (in/out). Explanations as to why would have been nice, but at least he noted the changes.
I like how he has separate list for 3-4 / 4-3 DE and LB
I mean Jarvis Jones is being considered as a 3-4 OLB but he's not on that list, he's on the 4-3 OLB list. Whereas Dion Jordan is only on the 3-4 OLB list.
I'd like to know how he thinks Jordan compares to Jones as a 3-4 OLB. He should put their names on both lists, rank the same player in each category.
Mayack is full of himself. He rated all those players based on what he saw when he watched the games they played in. Then he went to the combines and he changed his rating base on how those same players did drill instead of how they reacted to the plays that were ran against them.
Football is not played in shorts and track shoes like they do at the combines. It's a cat and mouse game between players and reaction to each other is what should determined how a player is graded.
There's a reason why some players grade doesn't change and why other do. The Players who's tape matches their drills, are high quality players who should garner the attention of teams. The players who tape doesn't match their workouts are the players who teams should consider based on their tape. The Players whose drills doesn't match their tape are the players u avoid.
Once upon a time i saw a WR at the combines who went to a Mid Atlantic Conference college. At his school, he was a prolific pass receiver with great hands. This player went to the combines and at 6'4" and over 220lbs ran a great 40. Because of where he went to school, he wasn't taken seriously. Today, he's one of the top receivers in pro football, a SB Champion and a great teamate.
What someone does when they laced em up and put on the Pads should matter.
@TonyPauline: Justin Pugh/OL/Syracuse completes 22 reps on bench at SU pro-day. Coming off the shoulder injury...
And when MayOck released his initial top 5s, I would assume he only watched a couple of games on each guy.
Tinstar, has it ever occurred to you that perhaps Mayock has gone back and watched more film since the Combine? That's part of the reason of the Combine...it's to confirm what you've seen on tape. He probably saw a few things that made him want to go back and watch more games of certain prospects.
Rich Eisen just tweeted tht Mayock now has E.J. Manuel as his #2 QB over Barkley FWIW
@richeisen: Check it out Florida St fans: Mike Mayock just popped EJ Manuel up over Matt Barkley as the No. 2 QB available in the draft.
@RapSheet: Wow, EJ Manuel moves to No. 2 on Mike Mayock's Top 5 QB list behind Geno Smith... After that, Barkley, Glennon and Nassib/Jones tied
Either way, the smart money is on NY passing on another USC QB, and probably the position altogether.
No, i don't think so. I don't remember at what point it was known that CAR was talking him, but he certainly wasn't favored to go anywhere near the top 10 early on.
