Texas A&M Junior Christine Michael suffered a season ending injury. He should return to school so I will not put him in stock up stock down this week. I had Michael graded out as a 3rd round pick, but I moved him down to a 4th round prospect expecting Michael to return.
Brian Quick Wide Receiver Appalachin State Senior Redshirt Now a 3rd Round Pick Previously a 4th Round Pick Brian Quick is a quality flanker receiver on a small school Appalachin State team. Quick has the talent to succeed in the NFL.
Jayron Hosley Cornerback Virginia Tech Junior Now a 2nd Round Pick Previously a 3rd Round Pick Hosley displayed excellent coverage ability in Virginia Tech’s win over Georgia Tech. Hosley has reentered the 2nd round conversation.
Amini Silatolu Left Guard Midwestern State Senior Redshirt Now a 3rd Round Pick Previously a 5th Round Pick Silatolu is one of the small school players who could be a top 100 pick. The Midwestern State guard has to be the frontrunner to be the top small school offensive lineman selected.
Robert Griffin III Quarterback Baylor Junior Redshirt Now a Top 5 Pick Previously a Top 10 Pick Robert Griffin III showed he could rally a team when down in the 4th quarter. When your down 24 to 3 heading into the 4th quarter and you rally your team to a 31 to 30 overtime win you deserve to be a top 5 pick if your considered a first round pick by many.
Robert Griffin III may not go in the top 5 overall. He deserves to be the 3rd quarterback taken after Andrew Luck and Matt Barkley.
Alameda Ta’amu Nose Tackle Washington Senior Now a 2nd Round Pick Previously a 3rd Round Pick Ta’amu kept Marc Tyler in check and the consensus still thinks Ta’amu is a first round talent even after his awful games against Stanford and Oregon. I’ll move Ta’amu up to the 2nd round.
LaMichael James Running Back Oregon Junior Redshirt Now a 2nd Round Pick Previously a 4th Round Pick James had a huge game against Washington’s Alameda Ta’amu. James had another statement game against one of the top run defenses in Stanford. James got off to a sluggish start. His play the last 2 weeks has him graded out as my #4 back behind Trent Richardson, Montee Ball, and Chris Polk.
Russell Wilson Quarterback Wisconsin Senior Redshirt Now a 3rd Round Pick Previously a 4th Round Pick Russell Wilson only threw 1 incompletion going 16 for 17. Wilson moves up a round.
Brandon Weeden Quarterback Oklahoma State Senior Redshirt Now a 3rd Round Pick Previously a 4th Round Pick Weeden has played so well for an unbeaten Oklahoma State team. I realize Weeden is in his late 20’s. Oklahoma State is 10-0 though plus Oklahoma State has had a monster year so he deserves some late day 2 consideration at this point.
Cameron Chism Cornerback Maryland Senior Now a 4th Round Pick Previously a 5th Round Pick Cameron Chism is one of the best field cornerbacks in college football. Chism limited Notre Dame receiver Michael Floyd to 9 receptions, 89 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. Chism kept Floyd from 10 receptions, 100 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown so he moves up a round.
Patrick Witt Quarterback Yale Senior Now a 6th Round Pick Previously a 7th Round Pick Patrick Witt had 3 touchdowns and no interceptions in Yale’s 33 to 24 win over Princeton. Yale runs a pro style offense so Witt now enters the 6th round conversation.
Jonathan Martin Left Tackle Stanford Junior Redshirt Now a Top 10 Pick Previously a Top 5 Pick Martin struggled against Oregon’s speed rushers all night. Martin could still have the potential to be a Jonathan Odgen type of left tackle. Martin moves down on the draft board this week because he isn’t as complete of a left tackle as I thought Martin was.
Riley Reiff Left Tackle Iowa Junior Redshirt Now a 1st Round Pick Previously a Top 10 Pick Reiff really struggled against William Gholston in one on one battles. Reiff is not a top 10 pick based on tonights performance.
Alshon Jeffery Wide Receiver South Carolina Now a 1st Round Pick Previously Previously a Top 10 Pick Jeffery has struggled the past 2 weeks and Ryan Steed of Furman dominated the 1 on 1 matchups against Alshon Jeffery a few weeks ago. Brian Quick had more success against Steed than Jeffery.
Lamar Miller Running Back Miami FL Sophomore Redshirt Now a 3rd Round Pick Previously a 2nd Round Pick Lamar Miller went up against a legit Seminole defensive line. Lamar Miller was held to 92 rushing yards on 22 carries.
Dre Kirkpatrick Cornerback Alabama Junior Now a 1st Round Pick Previously a Top 10 Pick Kirkpatrick probably will not get selected with a top 10 pick so he moves down the draft board.
Stephon Gilmore Cornerback South Carolina Junior Now a 2nd Round Pick Previously a 1st Round Pick Gilmore has struggled in 2011 and looks like a 2nd round pick at this point.
Brock Osweiler Quarterback Arizona State Junior Now a 4th Round Pick Previously a 3rd Round Pick Osweiler struggled against UCLA last week which prompts me to move him down to a 4th round prospect.
Nick Foles Quarterback Arizona Senior Redshirt Now a 4th Round Pick Previously a 3rd Round Pick Arizona is not bowl eligible. This moves Foles down to a day 3 pick with inconsistent play. A strong a senior bowl game could propel Foles back into day 2 status.
Chris Polk Running Back Washington Junior Redshirt Now a 2nd Round Pick Previously a Top 10 Pick Chris Polk struggled against Oregon and USC has done a good job keeping him in check. Polk moves out of the first round for now.
Doug Martin Running Back Boise State Senior Redshirt Now a 5th Round Pick Previously a 4th Round Pick Doug Martin missed the TCU VS Boise State game with an injury. Doug Martin drops another round on my draft board.
