MadDog Big 200 Board- Post Senior Bowl Edition

With the Senior Bowl a wrap, and almost a full month of little news before the combine begins in late February, I have put up the latest installment of a Big Board, which will cover the first 200 picks. These picks should cover the bulk of the draft, through the sixth round.

Disclaimer for newcomers to the Big Board: This is NOT a mock draft, but a targetted area where I believe the player should fall. In other words, if I feel a player is most likely to be picked in the 14-20 range, my targetted number might be 17th overall.

The Big Board covers the angles for how I believe players will test out at the combine and campus workouts, at post-season bowl games and All-Star games, off the field issues, injury history, the methods and values placed on certain positions, etc. In other words, it is long-range projection.

This is also NOT a ranking of players, how I feel about their ability. This is how I perceive the draft to occur.

Questions, agitations, fury is welcome. I'll be happy to explain my rationale for any player. Any problems with format: Ex: Jimmy Clausen, DT, Western Mississippi, please let me know.

Couple notes: The Senior Bowl caused some major movement on draft boards, including arrows pointing up for Jared Odrick, Dan Williams, Kyle Wilson, Dexter McCluster, Alex Carrington, Geno Atkins and more. At the same time, the Senior Bowl exposed serious problems with certain players at the next level, who may have to change positions. Taylor Mays struggled big time all week, showing problems at FS, and will have to change to SS or LB at the next level. He simply cannot cover WR's in the secondary. At the same time, Tim Tebow also had a challenging time in transitioning to a pro-style offense. You will see him pegged on the board in the general area of the Jags in Round 2.

Final note: I have removed O'Brien Schofield off the Big Board after his ACL injury this week.

Cheers.

I didn't see the game, but I take it you thought Iupati played well to keep him in the first round.
  • ninerphan420
  • Info N/A
Bigwad...You will get a variety of answers about Iupati...They moved him to Rg initially and showed some issue with holding/grabbing on several occasions. Once moved to Lg things improved but they continued to point out his poor technique. Im guessing Md is using the majority of his info. from the week of practices.

I am surprise MD to see Wetherspoon so low....he lit things up and did exceptionally well in space/coverage... I was guessing late 1st (NE type) to early 2nd for him.

Like MD has been saying, Iupati's play in the game has less to do with his stock than his performance through the week. Which I agree with no doubt. But the hype is what I don't buy into and not just by the posters of the Zone, but from Mayock as well. #1 offensive Guard in this draft, yes, #1 offensive lineman, no way.

Iupati is not "Superman" in alot of the webzoners eyes anymore, but I'm sure the hype will go back up after the combine.

Great job MadDog!
SO let me get this straight MD.

You drop Mays because he struggled in practice but excelled in the game.

AND

You raise Iupati because he excelled in practice but struggled in the game.



I'm struggling to see the logic.

As MD has said over and over and over and over, Scouts and GMs put more stock in practice than they do the game. Iupati excelled in practice over the week, whereas Mays struggled.

Sure, Iupati has his flaws, but they can easily be corrected. The fact that some people think that he can drop to us in the 2nd round is down-right hilarious. Based off of ONE GAME people are making these statements! There is no chance that he gets past the Cowboys, anyway.

So-so Senior Bowl or not, my dream draft scenario is still:

13. Best OT on the board
16/17. Iupati
49. McCluster or Best secondary player
80. BPA

is that a fact or opinion?
Has Jason Fox's stock really dropped that far down? I know he's been battling shoulder problems but he is a very talented player.

I did see the game (dVR'd it) and I think Iupati struggled quite a bit. I don't see 17 for him, and I am a WAC fan. Yes he has a lot of upside but when he played on the
right side he got owned.

Maybe I'm putting to much stock in the game, but if he was playing for the South and had the same performance he'd get alot of "scout talk" negatives.

I don't think he is ready to be anyones answer at ROT from what I saw.

PS...I also DVR'd all the practices, North and South, and watched them.

So, MD, based on your board:
R1a Bulaga OT
R1b Iupati OG
R2 Jacoby Ford WR/KR
R3 Myron Rolle S
R4 Devin Ross CB
R5 Eric Norwood OLB
R6 Garrett Graham TE/FB
R7 Reggie Carter ILB

Will Norwood fall that far? Rounds 3 and 4 could reverse positions with Brandon Ghee, CB going in R4 and Devin Ross, CB in R5
I hate it!!!!! WORST MOCK EVER.

Back to being serious -- I must admit, I have more disagreements here than usual on this one, but perhaps some may become more minor after the combine. But yes, a higher number of players than I expected seem either too high or too low to me.

I agree on that OTC, some are higher than i thought(Taylor Price, Pouncey), and some lower than thought(Hughes, Fox, Jackson)
Tebow at around 43 to the Jags is very generous.. If evaluated purely on QB potential he would be a 4th rounder or worse. Tebow was the worst QB in the Seniorbowl..

As a QB is just not very NFL ready. Can't take a snap, can't drop back, can't read defenses, long delivery, wobbly passes. Holds ball too low. He is also not very fast and has no wiggle making him ill-suited to running the wildcat.

If his name weren't Tebow and he were evaluated as just any other player, nobody would even be talking about him.
