"Tell Nina that this is NOT ENOUGH HAIR GEL."

Draft Day is approaching my friends, and I am starting to get that feeling in my pants (no, not that one. I told you to wait in the van.) So, here is my first official Big Board. Top 99 Guys. A few notes on my first round grades, and one on a good friend of draftniks everywhere

 

Take it in. Mmm.

1. Patrick Peterson | 6'0, 218 lbs. | CB | LSU - When Deon Sanders meets Charles Woodson and they have a kid.

2. A.J. Green | 6'4, 211 lbs. | WR | Georgia  - The next great WR, think Fitzgerald. Elite in & out of breaks, infallible hands

  3. Marcell Dareus | 6'3, 319 lbs. | DT/DE/NT | Alabama  - Plug him in any system,  will produce - Richard Seymour

4. Von Miller | 6'3, 246 lbs. | OLB/DE | Texas A&M  - Looking more like a refined LB - Lawrence Taylor.

5. Robert Quinn | 6'4, 265 lbs. | DE/OLB | North Carolina - Do it all athletic freak, amazing burst.  - Simeon Rice

6. Julio Jones | 6'3, 220 lbs. | WR | Alabama - Fast, powerful player w/ elite long speed. Shaky hands. -Terrell Owens

7. Nick Fairley | 6'4, 297 lbs. | DT/DE | Auburn  - Bipolar, relentless then lazy. Awkward body size, not as large as he plays

8. Prince Amukamara | 6'0, 205 lbs. | CB | Nebraska  - Coverage demon, best instincts in draft. Size and technique elite.

9. Da'Quan Bowers | 6'3, 276 lbs. | DE | Clemson - Knows how to beat tackles, strong hands. - He'll recover and be a steal

10. Cameron Jordan | 6'4, 286 lbs. | DE/DT | California - Could play any Dline position and thrive. Skill and great motor

11. Tyron Smith | 6'5, 310 lbs. | OT | USC - The next generation of freak lineman. Needs to work on run blocking, mean streak

12. Ryan Kerrigan | 6'4, 274 lbs. | DE/OLB | Purdue - A real guy you can like, hard worker, motor, production.  - Jared Allen

13. Mark Ingram | 5'9, 215 lbs. | RB | Alabama - Complete player, lacks elite speed, makes up with quickness. Will fall.
