[QUOTE=doggin94it;3533245]Right, which is sort of what I'm getting at here. Obviously, there are exactly 20 "top 20" guys in this draft - i.e. the best 20 prospects among this year's group - though the scouts will obviously disagree on who they are.
I'm going more for "a guy who, in a typical draft year, you'd be happy to take at 20"
Or, put it another way:
The 20th pick in the last 10 drafts has been:
2009: Alex Mack
2008: Aqib Talib
2007: Aaron Ross
2006: Tamba Hali
2005: Marcus Spears
2004: Kenichi Udeze
2003: George Foster
2002: Javon Walker
2001: Adam Archuleta
2000: Stockar McDougle
Now, granted, some of those guys may have been reaches. So I guess you can frame the question this way - how many prospects in this draft carry a higher grade than 7 or more of the above draftees?[/QUOTE]
Bruce Campbell- but he doesn't help the Jets...
Pouncey is better than Mack at equal points in their career..
Ditto for Taylor Mays vs. Archuleta....
Tate on the fringe because of his RS ability...
Hmmm . . . I knew you didn't like Clausen, but not a top 20 talent?[/QUOTE]
there are 20 players in this draft better than him- he'll likely get over drafted as he's one of the few signal callers in the draft who have starting ability...
you've got to remember a lot of the OLB's (Kindle/Hughes/Sapp) are projected as OLB's...I am also including guys like Arthur Jones and Corey Wootton who are first round talent but will be downgraded because they are on the mend from injury...
