  • Sergio Surroco

    No Calvin Pryor or Kareem Martin? No trent Murphy? Lots of 1st and 2nd rounders you left off this list

    • Ben Natan

      Martin and Murphy likely fall in top 150 while Pryor somewhere in 250.

      • David

        You have Pryor in the 250 range. Are you a betting man.

        • Ben Natan

          This is not a projection of where they will be drafted, I have no control over that. Just an evaluation of the talent and how it compares with the other players

          • David

            Well that is obvious. So basically any team that takes Pryor in the 1st round does not know what they are doing. The same with Barr and Donald…LMAO wow..

          • Ben Natan

            NFL teams will make decisions that don’t coincide with my rankings just like they make decisions that don’t coincide with other NFL teams. At the same time, they are not always right. I had high grades on Russ Wilson and Keenan Allen, but both were 3rd rounders…

  • Scott.

    Barr at 92? I haven’t seen a mock that has him getting out of top ten.

    • Ben Natan

      A lot seem to be overhyping his skill set rather than looking at his actual play. Lacks tools to be a true edge rusher and is best suited as a situational player in a WLB role.

      • David

        LOL most analysts and scouts see him as a pass rushing Sam or adding weight and playing DE.….Where do you get your info from..Wow.

        • Ben Natan

          I spend quite a bit of time evaluating prospects. I’d like to think I pay close attention.

          • David

            So you have watched a minimum of 5 games on each player this year and last?

          • Ben Natan

            Usually more, but yes.

  • David

    This list is absurd. Can you find another list from a legit guy or at least someone who knows some football.

    • Ben Natan

      What are your issues with the list?

      • David

        Well let see you have Barr in the 90′s, Pryor now somewhere at 250 and Donald at 46. Just curious but how did you come by with the list. Are you a scout, coach or former scout or coach?
