    The thing is, once you get past the top 15 or so players, the various big boards out there are vastly different. The fanspeak engine gives you the option of using any one of a dozen or so big boards, or even put in your own custom board. As an example, I was playing around with mocks drafts a lot this morning and saw PJ Williams ranked #11 on one board, and #67 on another. IMO once you get past the first handful of top prospects there are a ton of players with big question marks, and teams will likely see the same players very differently.

    Specifically on Jones, I go to most UCONN home games, and have seen him play in person numerous times. I like the kid, but I have been pegging him as about a 3rd round talent all along based on watching him on the field from the stands. It's funny - he was on nobody's radar, then he goes out and sets a world record in the broad jump at the combine, and now he's a 1st - 2nd round prospect. He's going to need some work to be a pro.

    I get your point and round 2 might be high for Jones being he is not nearly a finished product. Explosiveness can't be taught that's why the Combine and Pro Days have a lot of impact on certain players . The pundits all preach we have this guy slotted here and that guy slotted there and the combine and prodays have very little to do with their rank. I call BS.

    Similar to Brian Quick from Appalachin State they had him slated 4th. or 5th. round I was able to get in and see him work out and there was no way he was staying on the board that long .

    56 - R2P24 CB JALEN COLLINS LSU
    87 - R3P23 OG LAKEN TOMLINSON DUKE

    199 - R6P23 TE NICK BOYLE DELAWARE
    212 - R6P36 FS ANTHONY HARRIS VIRGINIA
    239 - R7P22 OLB MAX VALLES VIRGINIA

    Flowers is an ass-kicker; I'd definitely welcome him, although there'd potentially be a lot of money tied up in the OL and he's probably better for a power attack.

    The first round was a disaster, so I traded, traded, traded. I think it worked out. With that many corners, somebody has to work out. After Golden, I just took their highest rated players. I always lose interest around the 5th round.

    Round 1 Pick 31 (N.O.):
    Jalen Collins, CB, LSU (B)
    Round 2 Pick 24: Hau'oli Kikaha, OLB/DE, Washington (B)
    Round 2 Pick 32 (N.E.): Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M (A-)
    Round 3 Pick 11 (N.O.): Michael Bennett, DT, Ohio State (A+)
    Round 3 Pick 23: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon (B)
    Round 3 Pick 32 (N.E.): Alex Carter, CB, Stanford (B+)
    Round 4 Pick 22: Jesse James, TE, Penn State (A)
    Round 5 Pick 24: Markus Golden, OLB/ILB, Missouri (B+)
    Round 6 Pick 23: Akeem Hunt, RB, Purdue (B+)
    Round 6 Pick 36 (COMP): Deion Barnes, DE, Penn State (B)
    Round 7 Pick 22: Dres Anderson, WR, Utah (A)
