MadDog Master's Edition Big 256 Board- The Whole Enchilada

Draft season seems like an eternity away with the bump back to May, but in the dog days of preparation, here is my latest full and complete projection for the draft. This is a projection board, not a mock, nor a draft grade board.

With so many trades, I don't value much in the way of mocks. Teams switch so many places that it is impossible to project after the first few picks. Thus, this is a slotting of the general area of where I feel a prospect will be drafted, regardless of team.

Have fun, and if you see errors (Teddy Bortles, Fullback, LSU), or players you think I have overrated, underrated, and ones that you think will be drafted that I have undrafted, please let me know. I'd be happy to provide my analysis on the player and their prospects.

Cheers,

Double post. Computer bliss. Mods, can you lock one of these two guys? Thanks.
MD, do you believe in ranking injured players as if they weren't injured. So say Easley is a consensus Top 64 pick, but he may not get picked in the 1st 2 rounds, do you still think he is a top 64 player? Or anything like that. Thomas, Colvin, Long, etc... I have a hard time deciding where to put a certain player who is injured, ACL usually. What's your thoughts on that?
I'd love if Dennard was our 1st, then had Borland and Landry hanging around in the 2nd
As always, thanks for your projections. Been waiting. Gutsy call Roby at 19, 2nd CB off board.

Grading injured players is tricky. To me, it depends greatly on previous injury history, the severity of the injury, the position, and more. So, although I really liked Marcus Lattimore. but a knee injurty took away the back end of the 2011 season, and the 2012 ACL, PCL, MCL injury tear was so destructive that I took him off my board until the late rounds. I loved the kid, but some injuries are so tough that it makes it hard to think they can overcome.

As for Easley, he has that injury history, which drops him down for sure. The only question is "How far"?

Hilarious error! Maybe I was thinking about fish and chips

Thanks,

Size/speed combo very enticing for some team. If they can fix him, they will have a great, great player. Call me a skeptic.
Very nice big board. I especially like Roby at 19 ahead of the likes of Dennard & Fuller.

I also very much like enchiladas, so great post on both fronts.
Man, if we could walk away after day two with Denard, Moncrief, Easley, Joyner, Brooks and Ellington, I'd be out of my mind. We could go all redshirt special with Thomas/Long, Colvin, Millard on day three, and still pick up some 2015 draft capital.

What happened to Bridgewater? I was seeing mocks where he was the first overall player in the draft, and now #21?

Terrible pro day throwing the football, bad Wonderlic score, and terrible interviews as far as I know (seems arrogant and unintelligent). He put up good stats in college, but so did other QB's and Louisville had a really soft schedule this year. His hand size and durability (he's a little thin) are also concerns. I wouldn't be that surprised to see him fall to the Cardinals and be the fourth QB drafted.

Apparently, Bridgewater's private workouts haven't been going well either:

Why has Dennard dropped so far down? Measurables? Combine results?
