    It's hard for me to do a legit top 30 Big Board because I completely close a lot of players out. So you'll think "where's this guy?" or "that guy as a top 10?" etc. It's because if i don't like a player- he doesn't get on my board. But then there are some guys that I simply like but I'm not overwhelmed with that look higher than I think of them.


    1 Von Miller. Does he play in the Big 10?
    2 Daquan Bowers. Does he play in the Big 10?
    3 Nick Fairley. Does he play in the Big 10?
    4 AJ Green. Does he play in the Big 10?
    5 Prince Amukamara. Does he play in the Big 10?
    6 Adrian Clayborn. Ah, you got me!
    7 Aldon Smith. Does he play in the Big 10?
    8 Patrick Peterson. Does he play in the Big 10? (not very sold on Peterson overall)
    9 Ryan Kerrigan. Oh look. 2 players from the Big 10 in my top 10.
    10 Cameron Jordan. Does he play in the Big 10?
    11 Akeem Ayers. Torn on this guy, really. Gotta get a lot stronger.
    12 Mark Ingram.
    13 Nate Solder.
    14 Anthony Constanzo
    15 Drake Nevis. He should actually be higher- but I forgot about him.
    16 Christian Ponder.


    And that's all Ive got so far.

    This is an extremely weak draft class so it's hard to fill out a top 20-30. This is one of those years where the best picks will probably come in rounds 3-4 while the 1st and 2nd rounders are never heard of again.



    I think I had like 3 big 10 players in there- so yeah, your point was well made. It's my bias that makes me hate Dareus. (count the SEC guys up there)

    Does Marcell Dareus still sing for Hootie and The Blowfish?

    I agree with your #1...I think Miller is going to be a stud and I wish we were going to see him in a Titans uni....

    I haven't really watched the guy, so I can't really give you specifics or anything. But is it just coincidence that the guy made big plays in the National Championship? More than likely, if a guy is making big plays in the bowl game, he's been making big plays all year.

    Yes, but his play in the bowl game was a complete fluke.

    A ball fell in to his hands (literally) and he ran with it. Something anyone on this board could have done with enough luck.

    Haha, yeah right. You're idea of "watching tape" is searching on YouTube. I would seriously be surprised if you've actually watched any full games on Dareus. What a joke.

    I think Dareus is a mid 1st rd type prospect. If we drafted him i would have no complaint. I like some of the DEs better especially Watt.

    Still how many 320 lb guys run a sub 5.00 40? His 10 yard split was the same as the prototype speed rusher in this draft Quinn.

    To say he is a joke is idiotic. Ask any SEC OC and he would tell you Dareus was a bigger worry than Nevis was and Duece loves him.

    Nevis actually has some moves in his arsenal. He's not a guy that gets praise due to one play and decent combine numbers.

    He's a football player and I'd put money down that he'll be better than Dareus in the NFL.
