    You certainly do not need self promotion . The quality and accuracy of your work here does not give room for major disagreements. My comments are minor and possibly questionable, I think you have done a very good job here.
    As the draft gets closer your ratings of DE Jarron Gilbert and Tyson Jackson will demand its own thread. Gilberts good work at the Senior bowl supports your high ranking, 6th would seem kind of low for Jackson but I believe it is accurate.
    Quarterbacks: I don't even know where Hartwick is, so we no nothing of Jason Boltus. I would add Hunter Cantwell out of Louisville and drop the highly advertized Chase Daniels
    Running Backs: Wells> Moreno, I have a bias for big backs. I would replace Mike Goodson with Andre Brown NC State.
    Wide Receivers : Heward Bey > Robiskie > Britt...Robiskie had a strong Senior Bowl...
    Tight Ends: Jared Cook > James Casey
    Offensive Tackles : I'm looking at this list and there could be six OT's drafted in the first round. Loadholt may drop.Kropog > Meredith > Watkins.
    Offensive Guards : Herman Johnson checking in at the Senior Bowl at 380 will drop like a stone, look for Trevor Canfield to move up.
    Defensive Tackles: IMO Evander Hood will move up a couple of spots, and Ron Brace will slide.I believe Ricky Jean Francois and Alex Magee (both possible 3rd round Jet Picks ) belong on this list. Sammie Lee Hill, blots out the sun , but is a "reach" before the sixth round
    Inside LineBackers : I'm in the minority here , Sintim> Laurinaitus and Ellerbe>Beckwith > McKillop
    Safety : You have William Moore falling through the floor, he played poorly in the Senior Bowl, but I can't believe he could drop that far

    HAM <==== Shameless self promoter
    dont believe the hype, oher is probably the best tackle in the class, not the 4th best. I don't care how many times Kiper or whoever says different.

    also i find it confusing to have multiple instances of the same player on many lists, i.e. j gilbert, a curry

    You have to do that...if every team was a 4-3 defense, Tyson Jackson might not be on anybody's Top 10 list for defensive end...maybe defenisve tackle but not end...so it's important to lump them up according to scheme...

    As far as the QBs go,if i was a GM i wouldn't give any of em 1st pick money.I could see the Chiefs picking Stafford because they don't have a QB that Poli gives a hoot about.Personally,I don't see the big difference between any of the top 3 guys.

    As far as the DTs are concern my order would be Raji,Hill and Brace.My reason being a value a player who can play more than 1 position more highly than the player who specialize.Especially if the specialist have certain Red Flags the biggest being weight.

    As far as my RBs go,if you canblock coming into the NFL from the TB position,you get my attention.Over the last few yrs,the kid in Chicago and the kid in Indy,have proven the emence value of having these 3 abilities.Blocking,Running with decent speed and excellent vision and the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield.

    PS: One other thing,fans are not giving WR Brooks Foster enough credit .That kid has serious ability and with a good position coach and a yr in a pro conditioning program,he could be special.
