Probably one of the last times I update the rankings. I only have 28 first round grades this year. Not too bad, but there is a lot of depth this year.

If you're looking at safeties, then I'd look at Derron Smith also. He is literally the entire Fresno St secondary. It's crazy watching him try to cover the entire backfield, like he does.

Derron Smith is a very good player. He's my number five but I can see him getting higher if he keeps it up. I have a huge list of players on a spread sheet, but I have no clue how to post it!

Josue Matias is someone I'm looking at closely to takeover at LG once Blalock is most likely cut. You also already mentioned him but Danny Shelton is having a monstrous season already. I know he hasn't exactly faced the toughest competition yet but 7.5 TFL and 6 sacks from a NT in just two games is ridiculous.

Yeah, I've been high on Shelton for some time now. I was hoping that he would declare so we could get him last year, but I've been singing his praises for some time. Matias is someone that I started to be high on over the offseason. Everyone was throwing praise onto Tre Jackson, but when I watched his tape, all I ever ended up focusing on was their LG. I was really happy to see him ranked higher than Jackson, wen NFLDraftScout released their first 2015 rankings.

I know we will have no shot at him (hopefully anyway) but Leonard Williams will be a beast in the NFL. He has JJ Watt type of athletic ability. And I think Williams has 20lbs on him. This is a freaking man amongst boys. He was hurt in the Stanford game but was still a beast. He is my favorite defensive prospect in years.

Injuries are proving an issue for him. He needs to stay healthy.

ATown,

Only 3 TEs?

A TE that looks fluid to me catching passes is CJ Uzomah from AU. Good hands,solid blocker. Team Captain I believe. He is 6-4/264,runs 4.76 but looks faster. AU offense is not prolific in passing so hat hurts his stats and draft status but I think he is worth watching. could be mid-rd or late rd steal

ATown, excel spreadsheet works. Thanks for posting!

AEF

Thanks man. It's going to be hard to keep up with the stats but once everything is in place it should be alright. I update the defense one week then the offense the following.

Concerning TEs. I haven't really started digging into them yet but I am excited to look up some guys. I don't go off of any other sites ranks (btw none of mine is ranked yet) so when I see a TE pop out I'll write them down.

Realistically I believe we target Collins and Peat 1st rd. I think we will be picking in the top 20 which is where I see both of them. The only position in that range that's not a reach and is still a question mark is RT. I think top priority in FA is pass rusher. Other than Beasley who I'm not sold on and will probably be off the board anyway, its no other OLB worth taking there. We surely don't NEED a WR or RB. RT is suspect.

Peat or Collins should be available in that range. They both fit the big, strong, tough trait we now want. Collins is a senior and should play in SB. While Peat is not but his father played 6yrs in the league. Something TD seems to like now. (Matthews, Trufant, Alford) So I think those 2 names will be high on our board.
