Just came out. Here goes:

1. McFadden
2. Dorsey
3. Jake Long
4. Chris Long
5. S. Ellis
6. M. Ryan
7. R. Clady
8. A. Talib
9. V. Gholston
10. D. Jackson
11. C. Campbell
12. S. Baker
13. K. Balmer
14. F. Jones
15. B. Brohm
16. J. Stewart
17. K. Phillips
18. D. Connor
19. Mike Jenkins
20. R. Mendenhall
21. Reggie Smith
22. K. Rivers
23. P. Sims
24. F. Davis
25. L. McKelvin

Not bad. I think Talib, Baker and Balmer are too high. Certainly, players will move up and down with the Senior Bowl practices and the game, the combine and the personal workouts. At this time, I actually agree with Kiper's top 7.

He has Felix Jones over both Jonathan Stewart and Rashard Mendenhall. He rates Rivers pretty low. He doesn't have neither Sweed or Kelly in his top 25. A lot of interesting placements. I bet his big board will be completely different after this weekend.

Hmm, Conner over Rivers. I would take either one and even at 10.

Wow, Felix Jones is nothing more than a scat back at best.

I sometimes feel as if he just gets some of the top players together and just puts them in any order. Kind of like those NBA top 10 dunk reels and it's obvious that #6 or #7 should be number one.

7. R. Clady

Anyone know anything about this guy? Has anyone seen him play?

I was not thinking about drafting Oline, but if this guy is there at 10 is he worth a look? Do you think he would be a better LT or RT and possibly replace Stinch?

He'll be an NFL RT. If we do take a guy like Claddy, I don't know if he'll beat out the Stinch his rookie year.

I watched him play Hawaii in the WAC Championship game in late November. I wasn't impressed with his performance. He wasn't overly athletic or strong and the Hawaii defense was consistently getting pressure on his side. He gets beat by speed ends and I question his strength against bull rushers. Now all that being said, I can see him as a good RT but he does have his issues.

Amen, actually a draft like 06" would work.

I disagree. Clady is more likely to be a LT in the pros. He's very athletic, has great footwork and is probably the most polished OT including Jake Long entering the draft. He has outstanding size, but moves well for a man his size. He does not have a tremendous ceiling, but he will be very steady for the next 12 years for the team that drafts him.
