Walter football still has him ranked as their #2 NT prospect, where he has been listed all off season. I beleive CBS once had him ranked as their #2 at the start of the offseason. Actually at the start of the offseason, he was in fact, largely the #2 NT prospect in the country. You may have only seen me say it, but i have been following prospect ranking all offseason, from the very begining.
As far as the weight goes, i would say an overweight NT, who was still plenty athletic, is a bit differant than an over weight player in a skill position like WR.
Personally I don't care for most draft sites as I prefer to form my own opinion.
In my opinion (based on tape) the top NTs are:
1. Star Lotulelei
2. Johnathan Hankins
3. Jesse Williams
4. Sly Williams
5. John Jenkins
CBS/Nfl draft scout has him as their #8 DT and #74 prospect. That sounds closer to how I value him.
