2013 Player Ratings

This Draft is coming fast. I lost January do to The Pats. I feel so far behind I'm not sure I can catch up. I still have like seven Bowl Games on the DVR. However, it's draft season, so obsessive behavior is expected.  

Updated 2/28.

*Jarvis Jones- 6-3, 240,          

OLB/PR

Georgia

Easily the top rated player in this years Draft. However, a serious neck injury that forced him out of USC makes his place in this Draft troubling at best. However, I never thought I would see an OLB who can blitz like my-man Von Miller, and here he is. 

9.8X

*Sharrif Floyd- 6-3, 303, 

DT

Florida

Every time I watched him this season he looked like a first round D-Tackle to me. 

9.7

3

*Dee Milliner- 6-1, 200, 4.31, 

CB

Alabama 

I know, big surprise that I take the Alabama CB first. You have to have a CB in the Top Ten, right? This could be the first year I've seen where no CB or QB goes in the top ten. Before I see the speed, I'll take Milliner over all the other CBs.

9.7

4

Eric Fisher- 6-7, 305,

OLT

C. Michigan

He made a lot of money at the Senior Bowl, and they haven't even played the game yet. He has everything you in an OLT. He is small school OLT, who will play OLT in the NFL for a long time. I only had to see him play once to see that. He jumps off the film at you. 

9.7

5

Lane Johnson- 6-6, 304,  

OLT

Oklahoma

He looks like a dancer moving backwards. He does a nice job keeping his arms up. He still has some surprising upside, because he is so new to the position.  

9.7

6

*Luke Joeckel- 6-6, 310, 

OLT

Texas A&M

No O-Linemen looks as good as this kid in pass protection. Struggle run blocking sometimes, but as a pass protector he is second to none. 

9.7

7

Dion Jordan-  6-6, 245,     

OLB

Oregon 

Super athletic freak who is amazingly versatile. He doesn't have the Sack totals he should, because he dropped into coverage as much as he rushed. He is the type of OLB that BB likes. He wants guys who can cover and rush, unlike me (I just want guys who can hit the quarterback;-). 

9.7

8

Geno Smith- 6-5, 230, 

QB

WVU

I was all set to make him Number One. However, his inability to step up in Bowl Games worries me intensely. QBs have to step up in Bowl games, not down. I just have no idea how good or how bad he can be. My problem with him is that when things are going well there is absolutely no better QB in this Draft. However, when things are not going his way he tends to shut down. Like in his last Bowl Game the condition were wretched, and his stats were worse. However, he had three 50-yard passes (for at least two TDs) wiped out by the refs. If those plays had counted it could have been a blow out in the other direction. But then, because things weren't going his way, he seemed to start pouting and looked afraid to throw the ball. Now whether it was the weather or the bad luck, or of course the combination of both, you can't have a QB who appears to be pouting in a game. I was all set to make him the obvious Number One Pick, but that pouting scared the crap out of me. 

9.6

9

*Barkevious Mingo- 6-3, 240, 4.53, 

OLB

LSU

Another interesting passrusher. Mingo might have the best blast off the line in this Draft. However, he is still more promise than production.  

9.7

10

Ezekiel Ansah- 6-5, 270, 

DE/OLB/PR

BYU

Potential-potential-potential. In three years he could be the best of the bunch of Passrushers in this Draft. With only one real year of starting experience. He will go higher than people think. As some coaches will see his undeveloped clay as the greatest craft project of his life.  

9.7

11

*Johnathon Hankins- 6-4, 340

DE/DT/NT

Ohio ST 

Not the most productive DT in the draft, but clearly the most versatile. His ability to play all D-Line positions at anytime, and still get to the QB, is going to make him very popular on April 27th. 

9.7

12

*Cordarrelle Patterson-6-1 7/8, 216, (U 4.37-4.4), 37" Vert, 10'8", 

WR

Tennessee

Super athlete WR who hands will trouble people. He is pure prose with scary production. But who care how he is rated, he will not make it by Miami sitting at 12. 

 

9.6

13

Star Lotulelei- 6-3, 225, 

DT

Utah 

There hasn't been as physically strong a DT prospect since Suh.

9.7*!

14

Margus Hunt-  6-7, 280,  

5-Tech DE

SMU

Okay, for all you wimpies out there afraid to commit, I’ll say it, “Hunt was made to be 5-Technique in the NFL.” His size, long arms, strength, and speed give him such exciting promise. When promise meets production you have to take notice. His play in SMU's Bowl Game was a fusion of his great promise with astonishing production. 

9.7

15

Matt Barkley  6-2, 225, 

QB

USC

You have to include a QB in the top ten, right? I know he is not in the top ten here, but this might be the worst top end of QBs I have ever seen. Barkley took a beating this year. However, I keep remember him throwing in rhythm to Woods in 2011, and throwing deep to the Kid this past season. I'll take my chances with a QB who can do those two thing so well. 

9.6X

16

Kenny Vaccaro- 6-1, 215,  

SS

Texas 

He is a thumper. However, he is also a terrific athlete. I thought he showed he can also cover and make plays in pass defense as well this year. 

9.6

17

*Bjoern Werner- 6-4, 260, 4.9,

DE/OLB 

FLA ST

Fierce passrusher who was unleashed early in the season. He slowed some as the season wore on. Too often looked indifferent against the run for my taste, and reminds me of Bruce Irvin in that respect. However, he has that knack for hitting the Quarterback, and is one of the flock of players in this years Draft who is an infant in football years. 

9.6

18

Chance Warmack- 6-2, 320, 

OG

Alabama

A big time thumper with heavy hands. However, he has trouble latching on, and that is the NFL game. He is not a top ten pick. 

9.6

19

*Keenan Allen- 6-3, 210, 

WR

California 

I'm making a bit of a statement here. I don't think any NFL team can take a RB or a WR in the 1st Round. If you look at the WRs one through seven, there is such little difference in potential between them. You cannot take a WR in the 1st when you can get one of equal value in the 2nd or 3rd.

9.6X

20

Barrett Jones- 6-5, 305,  

OC/OG/OT

Alabama 

He is my top player for the Pats to pick in the 1st Round. He is likely the smartest player in the Draft, He is likely the best leader as well. BB values versatility. Jones started three Championship Games at three different position, including OLT. That is literally unmatched versatility in the history of football. He was also the well praised leader of the O-Line for three Champions. As far as playing goes? Nobody in this years Draft latches onto a defender and stalemates him with more consistency than Jones, period. 

9.6X

21

Desmond Trufant- 6', 186, 4.31 

CB

Washington 

He had just the kind of Performance at the Senior Bowl that propels a CBs into the 1st Round. 

9.5

22

Sylvester Williams- 6-3, 300, 

DT

N/Carolina 

He is as big, strong, fast, and talented as any DT in this Draft. Plus, he had an excellent senior season.

9.6

23

Alex Okafor6-5, 265, 

Texas

N. Carolina

He is a better football player than Werner, Mingo, and Montgomery. People are missing the boat on this guy. He plays with power, strength and excellent Technique, and just keeps hitting the QB. I hope everyone falls asleep and he drops to the Pats. He's a guy I want on my team. When the Texas needed a defensive play, he made it.

9.6X

24

Jonathan Cooper6-3, 315, 

OG

N. Carolina

He will go a lot lower than this because of his position, but he as complete a O-Guard as there is in this Draft. Zone Blocking teams will be drooling over him. His ability to play with balance and power with his hands and feet is as good as anyone's. I like him a hair more than Womack because I think he latches onto defenders better. 

9.6

25

*Sheldon Richardson- 6-3, 295, 

DT

Missouri 

Big 3-Technique who looks like he could be a good one. 

9.6

26

Jesse Williams- 6-3, 320 

DL

S. Carolina 

Still more promise than production. That is what a scary athlete he is. He is the most athletic DT/NT in this Draft, but doesn't play that way, yet.   

9.6

27

*Tyler Eifert- 6-5, 252, 

TE

Notre Dame 

Gronk-lite. He is two inches shorter and 20 lighter, but has a near mirror image game.   

9.6

28

*Eric Reid- 6-2, 212,  

LSU

I might be prejudice, but in the first of Alabama and LSU's great battles in 2011, he was the best player on the field. He was the deciding factor in that game. He is another player I don't think the Pats could say no to if he drops. 

9.6

29

*Sam Montgomery- 6-5, 260

DE/OLB

LSU

Montgomery is a much more complete player than Mingo. He has more production but not as much promise. I go back and forth between the two all day. Mingo's blast off the line is the kind that turns average production into freakish stats. While Montgomery is more the the type of OLB/DE that BB likes.

9.6

30

Tavon Austin- 5-8 5/9, 174, (U 4.25)

WR

WVU 

Ultra dynamic with the ball in his hands. However, he is not a real WR yet. He is a Percy Harven type half WR, and half ball carrier.

9.5

31

Kawann Short- 6-3, 315,     

NT/DT

Purdue 

I just have trouble believing that many 3-4 teams could pass on a NT of his potential. Rumors of attitude are the only thing that might keep him out of the 1st Round. If he plays hard all the time he's a top talent. 

9.5

32

John Jenkins- 6-3, 358, 

NT/DT

Georgia

I just have trouble believing that many 3-4 teams could pass on a NT of his potential. 

9.5

Second Round 

33

Matt Elam- 5-9 7/8, 208, (U 4.46-4.53), 

S

Florida 

I just like how this kid plays.  

9.5

34

Johnthan Banks- 6-1, 185, 

CB

Mississippi ST

Super athlete with that knack for making the play. If he runs well a the Combine he will go earlier than this. 

9.5

35

Manti Te'o 6-2, 250, 4.8  

ILB

Notre Dame

Okay, first off I believe him. For old farts like us we can never understand growing up completely in the computer age. One of the new things Kids do is have open intimate relationships with people online who they never met or have any intention of meeting. And for all you old farts out there remember, they have a name for it. As ridiculously insane as it seems to us old farts, they call in cat-fishing. We will never be able to understand what this kid went through. Just as he will never be able to understand what we went through before the digital age. However, I do believe him. 

9.5

36

*Eddie Lacy- 6, 220, 

RB

Alabama 

Punishing RB who ran behind maybe the best O-Line in the history of college football.

9.5X

37

*D.J. Fluker6-4, 222,        

ORT

Alabama

He is as good a Tackle prospect as anyone in this Draft. However, because he is a Right Tackle only, he will fall into the 2nd Round. 

9.5

38

*Zach Ertz- 6-6, 250,  

H-B

Stanford 

Terrific H-Back who catches passes all over the field.

9.5

39

*Xavier Rhodes- 6-1, 217,  

CB/FS

FLA ST 

Giant CB who might be to big to play CB. He could make a phenomenal Safety. 

9.5

40

*Giovani Bernard- 5-10, 200, 4.4 (U),  

RB

N. Carolina 

Making a bit of a statement here. I just don't see how any team could take a RB in the 1st Round this year. Even if I thought Bernard was as good as most other Draftnics. Although I did hear him in a recent interview, and I was very impressed. I just don't see a big difference between RB one and RB ten.

9.5

41

Khaseem Greene- 6-2, 230, 

LB

Rutgers 

He kept making every play the Rutgers's defense needed him to make. When they needed a play he was always front and center. He is undersized, but is remarkably freakish at finding the ball carrier all over the field. Plus, he can rush and cover with equal aplomb. He will look best in a Tampa. 

9.5

42

*Damontre Moore- 6-4, 255, 12 Reps, 

DE/OLB/PR

Texas A&M

Another passrusher supreme. He might be the best of the bunch against the run as well. He is a bit new on the scene, but he is looks like the second best passrusher in this years Draft. And in the new pass first ask questions later NFL, there is nothing more important on defense then guys who can hit the Quarterback. 

9.5

43

Cornelius Washington- 6-4, 268, 

DE/OLB

Georgia

Looked unblockable in the Senior Bowl practice. He manage to reach the QB in the game as well. However, he didn't play that way at Georgia. 

9.4

44

*Corey Lemonier- 6-3, 250,  

OLB

Auburn 

A pure passrusher who needs to be on the field when opponents are trying to throw. 

9.4

45

*Robert Woods- 6-1, 195,      

WR

USC

Silky smooth route runner, who gets open with guile, skill, and smarts. He would makes a nice WR for the Pats. 

9.4

46

EJ Manuel- 6-4, 240,  

QB 

FLA ST

Ever time I watch him play I am impressed. He might be the guy I stand on the table for in the 2nd Round. 

9.4

47

David Amerson- 6-1, 205, (U 4.38)

CB/FS

NC ST

He is a straight up Zone Corner. Anything else and I think you are asking for trouble.

9.4

48

*Justin Hunter- 6-4, 200, 

WR

Tennessee

Big play size speed guy, whose game I don't trust. 

9.4

49

Terrance Williams- 6-2, 205,   

WR

Baylor 

Big play WR who is also very well built.

9.4

50

Quinton Patton- 6-1, 200,  

WR

Louisiana Tech 

He is a small school phenomenon who just keeps getting open and catching the ball. He had what? 21 catches against LSU.

9.4

51

*DeAndre Hopkins- 6-1, 200, 

WR

Clemson

Very good receiver who I'm not sure can be a Number One. However, he could make an interesting Two. 

9.4

52

*Tyler Bray- 6-5, 215,     

QB

Tennessee

This could be the worst 1st Round QBs in NFL history. However, it could also be the best 2nd Round QBs ever. Bray is the young guy with the arm, whose team really sucked last year. You have to ask why couldn't he lead them to more victories?

9.4

53

*Alec Ogletree- 6-3, 240, 

LB

Georgia 

A terrific athlete who played in Georgia's terrific defense. I'm probably alone in the woods here, but I don't see him as a 1st Round pick.    

9.5CC

54

Dwayne Gratz- 5-11.1, 295, (U 4.4)- 

CB/FS

UConn 

Terrifically skilled Cb, who s also very effective agains the run. He has impressed from his Bowl game forward through th ewhole post season process. 

9.4

55

Ryan Nassib - 6-2, 228,  

QB

Syracuse 

A little undersized, and big surprise, inconsistent. He lacks a little size, and when he is on he throws remind me a lot of Drew Brees. The arc, the timing, and accuracy to hit guys on the run, all remind me of Brees. 

Another overrated guy. He has a nice arm and smarts, but didn’t produce the numbers of a 1st Round pick. He can be very hot and cold. 

9.4

56

Duke Williams- 6-1, 200,  

FS

Nevada 

Terrific athlete who finally found a home at Safety. .

9.4

57

Jordan Poyer- 5-11, 190, 4.46, 

CB

Oregon ST

He had just the kind of Performance at the Senior Bowl that propels a CBs into the 1st Round. 

9.4

58

Jamar Tayler - 5-11, 200,  

CB

Boise ST

The most versatile offensive player in the Draft. He could be a thousand yard rusher, or a thousand yard receiver.  

9.4

59

*William Gholston- 6-6, 275,  

DE

Michigan ST

He looked like a barn burner when he lined up next to Worthy last year. His play in Michigan ST's Bowl Game last year was astonishing. This year he switched side and looked lost without his little buddy. If I'm Green Bay I take a chance on him in the 2nd, and line him next to his little buddy again.

9.4

60

Markus Wheaton- 5-11, 196, (U 4.34), 

WR

Oregon ST

I love to watch this kid play. He is another guy that comes through when his team needs him most. I think he could be a star in the NFL.  

This is a kid I love. I think he would be a great steal for the Pats in round Two or Three. Preferably Three, but he is unlikely to make it that far. However, he has been under the radar. He is so smooth going to the ball. Quick hands go up for the ball. Makes nice adjustment to deep ball in the air. No problem catch the ball over his head. He can make great adjustments to the ball in the air. 

9.4

61

Tyler Wilson- 6-2, 220,  

QB 

Arkansas

He had it all as a junior. His team was stacked with talent and had the best QB coach in college. Then everything fell apart around him. The controversy really seemed to hurt every one. Plus, all the excellent talent that stayed, seemed to have wretched seasons as well. So the questions is do you upgrade him for surviving his senior season as the Arkansas program fell apart all around him, or do you down grade him for not being able to give life to the offense without the talent he had as a junior?

9.4

62

Mike Glennon- 6-7, 235,  

QB

N. Carolina ST 

Overrated inconsistent coach killer. If you are a NFL coach looking to buy, you better beware.  

9.4

63

Brandon Williams- 6-3, 325,  

NT/DT

Missouri S.

The mystery plugger from over the rainbow. However, he looks like a legit NFL NT to me.

9.4

64

*Le'Veon Bell- 6, 244, 

RB

Michigan ST 

He has everything that made Stephon Jackson great, except the speed. If he can lose 10-15 pounds, like Ridley did after college, he could have a similar career as Jackson. 

9.4

65

Tavarres King- 6-2, 220,  

WR

Georgia 

Underrated athletic WR, who is one of the best route runners in the Draft.

9.4

66

Lavar Edwards- 6-4, 250,  

DE

LSU 

The top back up in the Draft. He could quickly turn into an interesting 3rd Round steal.  

9.4

67

Phillip Thomas- 6-1, 215, 

SS

Fresno ST 

He has a lot of fans in the scouting community. He played at a smaller school and didn't get a lot of pub, but he can play. 

9.4

68

Aaron Mellette- 6-4, 220, 

WR

Elon

He has everything you want in a WR, but has played against top competition. Senior Bowl showed where he is in his development. 

9.4

69

*Tyrann Mathieu- 5-9, 190, 

S

LSU

Pothead who doesn't have the size required to play the position. However, in 2011 he just kept making the amazing big play over and over again in 2011. He could easily turn out to be another Alphonzo Dennard 3rd Day steal of the Draft, or he could go chase mushrooms into oblivion. If the Pats pick him in day three which do you think I'll predict;-).  

9.4CC

70

Devin Taylor- 6-7, 265, 

OLB

S. Carolina 

This kid has it all. Looks like a longer taller Jason Taylor. Only can't seem to put it all together. Then he Dominates the East West game. Not physical enough to play D-End and will have to be an OLB. 

9.4

71

Kenjon Barner- 5-11, 190, 

RB

Oregon 

This kid will be a star in the NFL.

9.4

72

Landry Jones- 6-4, 220,

QB

Oklahoma

Another QB whose inconsistencies make evaluating him impossible. The only thing I can add to the conversation is in 2011, when Ryan Broyles was on the field he looked like the second best QB in last years Draft. When Broyles wasn't on the field? Everybody kept asking what the hell happened to Landry? Looked similarly lost early in the year without Broyles. However, he seemed to pull it together late without his obvious crutch at WR. I think he still has a shot at being the best QB from this inconsistent bunch. If Detroit takes him in the 2nd or 3rd Round?

9.4

73

Johnny Adams- 5-10, 190,  

CB

Michigan ST

Athletic CB who impressed me when ever I watch Michigan ST. 

9.4

74

Kwame Geathers- 6-4, 325,  

DT

Georgia 

Big DT who is getting a lot of looks by 3-4 teams looking for a NT.  

9.4

75

John Simon- 6-2, 263,  

OLB/DE

Ohio ST 

The move out to LB at the Senior Bowl has made him a Second Day pick. He is an undersized D-End, who should he had the athleticism to play standing up at Senior Bowl.

9.4

76

Thomas Shamarko - 5-8 5/8, 213,  (U 4.38)

S

Syracuse

This kid is built like a bowling ball. He is short, not small. He showed unbelievable speed at the Combine. He got compared to Bob Sanders. Smooth hips. Turns and runs nicely.  

9.4

77

Zaviar Gooden- 6-2, 220, (U 4.47), 37 Reps,

LB 

Missouri

Pure speed linebacker who can cover like a Safety. .  

9.4

78

Arthur Brown- 6-1, 240,  

LB

Kansas ST 

Run and chase linebacker who seemed to do a lot of chasing when I watched him. .  

9.4

79

Marquise Goodwin- 5-8 7/8, 183, (U 4.25-4.29),

WR

Texas

Track guy who looked like he turned into a football player at Texas.  

9.4

80

Corey Fuller - 6-3, 200, (U 4.38-4.37) 

WR

V. Tech

Size speed athlete whose hands sometimes fail him..  

9.4

81

Chris Harper- 6-3/4, 229, (U 4.57, 4.46),

WR 

Kansas

He is a WR who is built like a LB. Reminds me of a pumped up David Givens. Someone is going to get a real steal in the 3rd or 4th Round. 

9.4

82

*Kenny Stills- 6'-1/2, 194, (U 4.34-4.28), 

WR

Oklahoma 

I thought he would make a great Slot Receiver. Then he ran in the 4.3 range at the Combine and showed he had the speed to play outside.

9.4

83

Ryan Swope - 6', 205, (U 4.44, 4.3?)

WR

Texas A&M

Another highly productive Slot Receiver who showed he had the speed to play outside.   

9.4

84

Theo Riddick - 5-11, 200,  

RB

ND

The most versatile offensive player in the Draft. He could be a thousand yard rusher, or a thousand yard receiver.  

9.3

85

Will Davis- 6-2, 220

CB 

Utah ST

Looks the part.  

9.4

86

Leon McFadden- 5-10, 190,  

CB

San Diego ST 

I just like how this kid plays CB.  

9.3

87

David Quessenberry- 6-6, 295,  

OG/ORT

San Jose ST 

Huge O-Guard who really looked the part in the NFL.
