Originally posted by 49oz2superbowl:Great job OTC, very solid overall ranking... a few comments from my own personal opinion.
1) Joe Adams should be on this list (IMO no later than a late 3rd round pick)
2) Chris Givens is rated too high (listed in the 2nd round)
3) Josh Norman is underrated
While I believe that Norman and Adams hurt their stock with unimpressive 40 times, I don't see either player falling out of the third round. They are much more explosive in pads and in game situations (see Kendall Wright) than their 40 times indicate and all it takes is one GM who doesn't put stake into the combine to rate these two players as 3rd round prospects at the latest. I believe the combine hype will die down and these players will each have a chance to redeem themselves at their pro days (and on film). Both players were extremely productive and explosive in college and both had outstanding performances in postseason games.
I think late 2nd early 3rd range is about right for Givens, who displayed outstanding speed and lightning quickness in drills at the combine. He, like Marvin Jones, is rising. Givens was more productive than Jones though (1330 yards, 9 TD on 83 catches).
I have Joe Adams at New England's pick in the 4th right now. I'll probably move him up at some point, as obviously this board is very much going to change.
When putting together these boards, there are points where you realize something, and it's this: SOMEbody has to fall. At some point, you see that there just isn't enough room for everybody that SHOULD go in a certain round, and that is how you get steals.
I can tell you right now, this draft is VERY deep. I'm talking there should be players in the 6th round that are worth much much more than that in terms of draft stock right now. Now, I know some players are overrated and will go higher than they should and I have to account for that when putting this projection board together, but those that are overrated that are overdrafted simply push better players to us, so...
