SI just put out their top 50 draft board and it’s got some surprising placements. Haden is 5, Bruce Campbell at 9, Bradford 16, Clausen 23, Spiller 28 behind Mt. Cody (27)!!, Trent Williams 38 behind Maurkice Pouncey! There are seemingly cogent arguments for most of the placements (e.g., "scouts feel Spiller plays a soft game and question his ability to be a feature runner at the next level.")
If it went down like that, we’d be choosing for our two 1st-rounders among McClain and Earl Thomas (I doubt we’d go for Bradford with the shoulder thing), Sergio Kindle, Iupati, and Bulaga. 2d-round options might be Perrish Cox, Gilyard, Daryl Washington, Kareem Jackson, Corey Wooton. It’s probably whack, but it shows me that one sidenote to the strength and depth of this draft (and the question marks surrounding the QBs) is higher uncertainty in the first 2 rounds than usual. Thoughts from the Board-makers?
