    Some interesting rankings from this site. Connor Barwin as the #4 ranked TE? I like him and hope we draft him but #4.

    Jason Smith as the #4 rated OT? Garret Reynolds not even ranked in the top 10? Andrew Gardner is another sleeper OT I like.

    Larry English as the #8 rated DE? I know, I know, he will convert to OLB, but still, #8 behind Kruger and Michael Johnson? Aaron Maybin at #3? Nice, Barwin is ranked as the #9 DE, can anyone esle remember the last time a player was ranked in the top 10 at 2 positions? I can't.

    Did I mention I really hope we pick Barwin in this years draft?


    Joseph Frantz made the top 10 for MLB, will be interesting to see how he does at the combine if he was invited. Anyone know?

    Sean Smith at #6 for CBs? Macho Harris at #10? Coye Francies vaults all the way up to #4?

    Unfortunately, Frantz Joseph was not invited to the combine. I like him a lot.

    Thats a shame, he played well enough to garner an invite. He has the kind of size we look for in a MLB.

    I think he should pack on about ten pounds but I'm a fan of his game. Tackling machine and can get sideline to sideline. Not too bad in coverage either.

    I like Connor Barwin a lot too. Aaron Maybin, Larry English, or Robert Ayers would be my first choice but Barwin is right behind them. I love the idea of him catching TD passes in the redzone like Mike Vrabel.
    Sean Smith was not as impressive as Coye Francies at the Senior Bowl so that's why the ranking. However Smith doesn't have off-the-field issues to answer for. I still want to see what Smith runs at the Combine. Not crazy about a corner with a slow 40.

    I would agree with the Macho Harris ranking. Love his playmaking ability but he's way inconsistent. He'll make a great play like a pick six and then get burned for a TD on the very next series. He scares me.

    It's a good thing Malcolm Jenkins didn't attend or he wouldn't have held on to the top spot.

    I don't get D.J. Moore ahead of Alphonso Smith.

    The fact that Joseph Frantz was not invited to the Combine is good for us actually. It means he's more likely to still be on the board when we pick in the 5th round.

    So, he doesn't get invited Combine, Senior Bowl, or the Shrine Game, despite the fact he lead the nation in Solo Tackles and is amongst the top of the nation in Total Tackles. Figures.

    Ahem. Frantz Joseph, nor Joseph Frantz. But I still agree with your point.

    LOL. :pity:

    I thought something about that didn't look right. Somebody should tell the The National Football Post they got his name backwards.

    No worries...

    I'm just wondering what logic they use in who and who doesn't get invited to any of the postseason All-Star games.
