Good to see someone shares my love for N’Keal Harry!

Interesting that you have Pierschbacher as the #1 Center. Bradbury seems to be the consensus choice, although there seem to be one or two question marks about how he will hold up against bigger DT’s...

An interesting read.

How did Drew Sample/Josh Oliver stack up compared to your the top 10 TE's? Did Sample's 'average' combine performance play a part? As you said, the guys who performed well at the combine seemed to find a home in your top 10.

I really like this WR class. So interesting how close a lot of them are. Wouldn't be surprised to see two or three receivers taken before Harry depending on what a team wants at the position. When I put everything together like skill-set on film, good combine etc Harry comes out on top for me.

Bradbury is all about using good movement and quickness. Not so much about power, so as you say, he will get marked down on how he'll work against the biggest DT's. I had him further down but then, like many, got won over by his combine. Pierschbacher has been good throughout the process. I gave him high grades for his technique and versatility - I think he'll be an NFL guard. Under no illusions that he probably won't be taken until late in the third round.

Harry’s a big bodied WR who can outmuscle DB’s for passes, but can also do some amazing things once he has the ball in his hands. Wouldn’t surprise me if he goes in the early 2nd round, but also definitely wouldn’t surprise me if he’s the first WR taken.

Great read btw, I’m amazed at just how much work some people on here put into the process. Certainly puts me to shame!

Thanks very much, Richard.

Drew Sample is my #11! I haven't "clicked" at all with Oliver - route running, blocking not good. Yes, I've marked down Sample's combine. Also does not have the same upside as some. Didn't become apparent to me until I put it all together how much I was valuing the more athletic TE's.

Completely agree on Harry. He can win with ease on the outside. Then I loved seeing his YAC moments on film where he'd make guys miss too.

Thanks for the nice words. It sure did take up some time (Probably too much!) but worth it to get to know the draft class.

Cracking stuff, Liam - as some who puts in too many hours, I can see you have too! I really like how you aren't afraid to go against popular opinion - after all, no one is right or wrong right now as undrafted guys can make multiple Pro Bowls! I've been in top 100 mode for a couple of weeks, so nice to see some different names!
