Ranking of top rookies

Postby Larryalcohol3226 » Thu Jan 26, 2012 12:16 pm

I have picks all over the first round but i want to see what people think about this years class. top 10 or top 12. If possible comment on where the big break in tiers are. so far this is how i see it for a 1 PPR league with 6 points for QB TDs

1 Trent Richardson
Break here
2 Justin Blackmon
3 Andrew Luck
Break here
4 Michael Flyod
5 Lamar Miller
6 David Wilson
7 Alshon Jefferson
8 Robert Griffin
9 Kendall Wright
Break here
10 Chris Polk

I think Trent is the #1 regarless of team need. Team need would determine Luck or Blackmon at #2 and 3. 4 - 10 is up in the air for me and i could easily move them around and still feel it be justified. I have had flyod as low as 7 recently and Polk as high as 5.

Alshon Jeffery is too high and Chris Polk is too low, imo.

Jeffery shouldn't even be considered. Typical Spurrier wr.....good to great in college, but don't last very long in NFL because they can't seperate. Can't answer why that is, but always seems to be the same imo.

Rest of the list looks good.

True value won't be able to be considered until after the NFL draft obvioiusly. But from some articles I've read this early, is that Blackmon may be a bit over rated, and Kendall Wright should be ranked higher at thier position.

List looks ok, I would move Kendall Wright just below Blackmon though and imo I believe RG3 is SLIGHTLY better than Luck. He had better numbers, just barely, than Luck in NCAA. How that translates into NFL, I don't know, I'm not psychic, but numbers don't lie. On a sidenote, I like Muhammad Sanu maybe a couple spots after 10 on your list. May be a sleeper in 1st round. ;-D

My rankings are approximately:

1 Trent Richardson
2 Andrew Luck
3 RG3
--tier--
4 Justin Blackmon (down)
5 Michael Floyd (up)
6 Lamar Miller (up)
--tier--
7 Doug Martin
8 David Wilson
--tier--
9 Chris Polk (up)
10 Kendall Wright (down)
--tier--
11 LaMichael James
12 Mohammed Sanu (down)
13 Stephen Hill (up)
--tier--
14 Alshon Jeffery (down)
15 Chris Givens (up)
16 Toby Fleener
17 Cyrus Gray
18 Isaiah Pead
19 Robert Turbin
20 Bernard Pierce

Biggest riser is Stephen Hill. Expected him to do well at the combine, but not that well. I'd still hesitate to take him with a 1st.

Biggest faller is Kendall Wright. A "wha' happened" sort of 40 time that makes you re-evaluate everything.

Well to me a lot depends on how the draft shakes out. Is Blackmon rated higher with a qb like Bradford, does RGIII have more value in Washington compared to Cleveland? The rankings seem pretty good, but will change with the draft. I'd go back through and rerank players post draft. Good luck.
