Draft rankings

Okay all you mock drafters out there I took a few days and got some numbers together. Here is the jist I went to ESPN, Yahoo and a few others to figure out where they are getting their rankings from. Needless to say I am using Scout, CBS, Pro Football Weekly, and Walter Football. I think that is a good cross selection of folks. I tried to get NFLNs info but he only lists the top 5 in each spot so that is point less. My goal was initially get enough of list for roughly 3 rounds but I think I am closer to getting 5 rounds now. I am going to break these down by position so without further ado here is the list. I should also point out that at the bottom of each list their could be other players that are close to the same ranking or slightly higher. But the top and middle sections of each list should be fairly accurate.

    Okay I am joking here actually I was going to put some names down here as a team or two will pull the trigger and grab a Kicker or Punter in the first 3 rounds but nobody was listed on Scout and did not waste my time checking the other 3 sites. In anycase if there is anybody who I missed on this list its not that do not like you but there is so many of you guys and gals out there that I could go on for an hour listing everybody.

Alright this post has hit the 1000 word count and is now bigger than anything else I have written in a VERY long time. So a few comments on the listing. As you see from the post there is some players listed more than once as they have been projected to be in multiple positions. For those that want exact info I have 150 players on my list. That would take us through the 4th round and then most of the 5th round. I will say there is players not on here that will get selected. I was surprised at how few Safeties are in the draft but most of the safeties are late draft projections. As for Corners well that is majority of the first 4 rounds. I was also surprised about the TE's but I initially started with 5 and 4 stars and the top 3 were the best. I actually went back and grabbed the 3 stars when I wrote this just to get some players. Needless to say TEs are not a big listing.
