  • 2019 NFL Draft Top 300 List

    Final Top 300 List.

    Not trying to predict the draft or peg players where the media has them ranked. There are a million sites doing that. These are my rankings off mostly tape grades and draft history for similar players. I made some adjustments to my draft game Top 300, mostly with updated Pro Day data and injury information. I tried to limit the changes, so the vast majority of the rankings follow the original draft game list, but I'll list any key changes after the list.

    CHANGES:


    - Ferrell (-10) drops because he didn’t do a pre-draft workout and is dealing with turf toe. Still thought he had the best tape of all the DEs, but can’t go Top 10 if you don’t work out pre-draft.

    - Oliver (+3) due to his Pro Day confirming and surpassing the tape.

    - White (+4) and Bush (+4) rise because between Cashman’s injury history and Joseph not working out, the next tier of LBs is a steep dropoff.

    - Montez Sweat is off the draftable board due to his heart condition. He will get drafted, but it might be similar to Maurice Hurst from last year when he fell to Day 3. It’s at least a possibility. Can’t take that risk early. Now ranked at #255.

    - Most of the top tier OTs rose up a little bit just because the position is not deep and the need is acute. Williams (same), Taylor (+3), Ford (+1), Dilliard (+6).

    - Wilkins (+10) was just ranked too low and needed to be adjusted. With Tillery’s shoulder surgery, he becomes more enticing as a plug and play DT.

    - Gary (+8) gets adjusted upward as it’s clear he’s going in Round 1 despite up and down tape.

    - Brown’s foot has checked out from all reports, he moves up a little (+4).

    - Most of the top QBs are getting adjusted upward a little bit, was just a little too negative with the entire group.Stidham (+6), Lock (+6), Jackson (+11), Greer (+6), Thorson (+11), Haskins (+19), Jones (+35), Minshew (+35).

    - Harmon (-12) had to drop to the early 2nd. I love his tape, but there is next to zero chance a 4.6 WR goes in round 1.

    - Risner (+6) and Lindstrom (+10) rise up a little bit as they each had a strong pre-draft process and separated from the interior OL pack a little bit.

    - Vosean Joseph (-20) drops quite a bit due to not working out prior to the draft. Jachai Polite (-14) drops due to a poor pre-draft process.
    I’m still bullish on both players as they had excellent tape with both looking like stellar athletes and playmakers, but I acknowledge the pre-draft process has hurt both players.

    - Felt like I was just too low on all the big slot WRs, they all got bumped up a half round. AJ Brown (+17), Arcega-Whiteside (+17), Harry (+17), Samuel (+17). Draft history hasn’t been kind to these body types at WR, but perhaps this is the year it changes.

    - Yodney Cajuste (-22) fell quite a bit due to not working out and having quad surgery. I don’t think he’s a good OT, but thought he’d make a superb OG. Pre-draft workouts were very important to dig into that transition, and they just never happened.

    - Kyler Murray is not on my draft board. He’s not a bad QB, but I don’t like his style of play. I don’t like running QBs. I don’t like QBs that avoid contact at all costs, though he’s really tiny, I get it. And I don’t like what he did to the As, going back on his word. He’s not a person I would draft or sign in UDFA. If none of that mattered, he’d be right behind Tyree Jackson at #43.

    - Taylor Rapp (-37) ran a 4.75 at his Pro Day. That’s not good. Had questions about his speed on tape, but not to that degree, was thinking more like 4.55. Dropped a full round and even that might not be enough. Tape was pretty solid though.

    - With the bigger slot WRs moving up, some of the other WRs had to fall down in return. Ridley (-15) and Isabella (-11) took the hit.

    - Chase Hansen (-30) hasn’t been able to work out after having surgery on a herniated disk. He drops one round. Tape is still excellent.

    - Savion Smith (-35) drops one round due to running a terrible 40 and not fixing it. Probably limited to zone schemes, but could play some safety as well. Still a good player.

    - Elijah Holyfield (-43) drops significantly due to testing poorly and reconfirming it at his Pro Day. Tape is solid, but legit chance he goes undrafted. I would take him in the 6thround.

    - TJ Edwards (-41) drops one round due to testing poorly and not fixing it. Small and slow LBs without high end quickness, even with great tape like Edwards has, are lucky to get drafted at all. Tape too good to take him off my board, but late 5thround might be best case scenario.

    - Maxx Crosby (-31) drops one round due to length concerns. Sub 33” arms as a strict 43 DE prospect is going to ding him. That, combined with my notes, I thought my initial ranking stood out as too bullish.

    - Antoine Wesley ran a 4.65 at his Pro Day and has the body type of a string bean. Gaining mass to beat press coverage is only going to make him slower. Moved to undraftable at #270.

    - Missed the fact Drue Tranquill is held together by duct tape and has had multiple ACL tears. He’s off the draftable board per similar players with serious medical histories. Now ranked at #260.

    - Hunter Renfrow and Greg Dortch both ran much, much slower than expected. I doubt either get drafted. Renfrow listed at #280 and Dortch at #295.

    - Keelan Doss (+45) had a strong Pro Day and with other WRs performing poorly, he shoots up the board. Initial ranking was hesitant due to no workout numbers and no tape work.

    - OG Drew Forbes checks in at the top of the 7th round. No tape work for SE Missouri State, but seems to be a consensus that he’s going on Day 3. This is where I would consider him.

    - CBs Nick Needham and Stephen Denmark were added to the Top 300 sight unseen late in the 6thround. I like what I heard digging into them a little bit and the athletic testing is enticing. If I’m going to take a flyer on an athletic freak CB, I’d rather it be on either of them over Isaiah Johnson, so they had to be ranked higher.

    - LB Dakota Allen (+102) moved from UDFA to early 6thround clustered with Hanks and Edwards. He’s probably not getting drafted that high, if at all, but that’s where he should have been ranked on the original board based on my tape grades and notes, so correcting an error in the listing. No idea what happened, but that was the only guy I randomly misranked.

      This should make it easy to see who I think the top players available at each of our selections and in UDFA after the draft are. There are some players I am just ridiculously high on compared to common perceptions. I'm hoping we draft/sign quite a few of them. I did tape work on 90-95% of this list, so can always re-post analysis on most of the players as we draft them or if people have questions.

          Deion Calhoun is not on your top 300? I can't find him.



          [I'm asking because the Jaguars got him as UDFA]

            Did not make the cut. I thought Calhoun was underwhelming. It's a deep draft. Probably most of the guys from 301-400 could go late on Day 3, but there's still 150+ decent players that just can't fit into the draft.





            OG DEION CALHOUN MISSISSIPPI STATE

            Auburn (2018): Playing RG. Fairly quick cut block on the NT, effective. Stout guy, has tree trunk legs, plays really low and maintains good leverage. Pulled around the LT, wasn’t the most graceful on the pull but he nailed the ILB around the corner and sprung the RB for a nice gain. Shows ability to get out to the second level quickly and hit the LB in space. Tried to pull him around the left side again, just too slow to get out in front of the RB. Decent pop at the point of attack, biggest issue is that he doesn’t hold his blocks very long, the DTs slide off or redirect and still make plays on the ball carrier. At his best when twisting and turning the DT to wall them off from running lane. Stack and shed by DT, stuffed run for minimal gain. Kind of dove too early and missed his block near the goal line, LB went right over him and stuffed the run. He’s doing a superb job of not getting bull rushed by some big and strong DTs, the issue is that he’s struggling to move or block them in the run game, so a lot of stack, shed, stuff run going on by his guys. DT Brown in particular is clowning him. Great block at the second level on LB to spring QB for a chunk gain on designed run. Flawless pull around the LT with a nice block on the ILB on off tackle run. That looked athletic and smooth, much better than his earlier attempts. Pancake on DT on off tackle run, just threw him down and QB with a chunk gain right behind him. Another solid pull around the LT where he blocked the ILB in space. This is actually pretty good tape, not perfect, but he’s showing enough athleticism along with his overall stoutness to be a legitimate draft prospect. Pulled around the LG, massive pancake on LB, QB followed him for a 15 yard TD. That was pretty awesome. Had some issues with moving big NT types in the run game, he didn’t. Can generally win with twisting and wall them off, but was overpowered and stacked up more than a few times. Still, thought this was intriguing tape on the whole.

            Alabama (2018): Playing RG. DT Williams blew right past him through the inside gap, Calhoun tried but was way too late to handle the quickness. Solid job 1v1 against scrub DT Dwight in pass pro. Solid job against DT Davis in pass pro. Showing good stoutness against any type of bull rush. Pulled around LT, cut block on DE, effective play. Decent job walling off DT Davis on inside run. He’s not a drive blocker or people mover by any stretch, though on double teams, he and the OC have done some work at times. Pulled around LT on slow developing run, nice block on LB that sprang RB for chunk gain. Solid job in pass pro against DT Davis, tried a swim move, Calhoun able to mirror and ride him wide of the QB. He’s not the most graceful guy, his balance is all over the place, he trips and scuffles around at times. I’m not sure what all that is about. Can’t block DT Williams 1v1, he just gets upfield too quickly and shoots the gap, Calhoun can’t get in front quick enough to stop him. Beaten by Davis with an outside swim move for a QB pressure. Continues to pull around the LT, moderate success, doesn’t always find someone to block, but he’s getting around there and in position to lead the RB sweep. Stack and shed by DT Williams on 3rd and 1 play to tackle the RB for a loss. Tape had a fair amount of double teams on DT Williams along with the OC. Those generally worked. For the most part Calhoun did his job against a good defensive front. He did not always look pretty doing it, half the time it looked like it was taking everything he had to just hold off the DTs long enough. I think he’s good enough to be on a 53 man roster in the NFL as backup type, the way he was routinely destroyed by Williams’ quickness in 1v1 makes me think he has limited upside. Wasn’t the worst tape, but it probably doesn’t help him get drafted.

            Iowa (2018): Playing RG. Pulled around the LT and smashed into the DE to seal him outside on off tackle run. Solid job turning the DT on inside draw, QB went right behind his back. Pancake on DT on 4th and 2 play, DT tried to come in low, Calhoun just sumo bounced him. Nice job pulling around the LG and smashing into the ILB. Half of his pulls looks great, the other half are a hodgepodge of sluggish athleticism and klutziness. Pancake on the DE Brincks, just twisted and threw him down on pass rush. Good burst to get to the second level, problem was the LB saw him coming and just zipped right around him to make tackle on RB sweep. LB kind of bull rushed him back into the QB for a pressure on a blitz. Stacked up by the DT, RB ran into his back, had to redirect and bounce the run to the other side of the line. Has to be one of the more awkward OGs I’ve seen, OL in general really. Every game he takes missteps that cause him to stumble and flail around until he catches himself, it looks like he’s drunk. Has happened trying to step back into pass pro, has happened trying to lunge and drive block in the running game. Most of the time it happens when nobody is around, he just randomly stumbles. I think he has balance issues. Excellent pull around the LT, sealed the ILB inside, RB with a nice gain right behind him. Bullrush by the DE for a pressure. Getting moved back a bit more than normal, usually he’s extremely stout. Solid job picking up stunt around the outside. Even at the goal line, just offers no drive block ability to move DTs off the line. Pulled around LT, LB side stepped him, made tackle on RB for minimal gain. Lunge block on DT, side step and outside swim beat him for a QB pressure. Calhoun flashes at times, but he just doesn’t quite seem like an NFL caliber OG.


            TLDR:
            Overall, Calhoun is very stout and absorbs bull rushes fairly well, the problem is that he doesn’t drive defenders off the ball and is incredibly easy to stack up in the run game. DTs shoved him back into the RB in the hole more times than I could count. His best plays are when he pulls around the LT, at least half of the time he makes a good block on the DE or LB. He’s almost draftable just for that. He doesn’t handle quickness though, like at all, and I think that makes him not an appealing option in the draft. It is somewhat close though, no problem if a team takes him late.

              Ok, thanks. That Montez Sweat pick already ruined our draft. I can only imagine how many negative points we're going to get.

                I appreciate the work you put in on this.

                  Medicals are always the biggest hindrance in mocks. Though usually it's Med who suffers.

                    Hey MUG - Thanks for posting this. I have been looking forward to seeing your rankings. I am probably the biggest lurker here. I rarely post, but visit daily.
                    I am glad to see you are high on a couple of players - Greedy and Dexter Lawrence. I have seen a lot of mocks with Greedy in the 20's and Dexter late 20's to 32.
                    Honestly, I would be more than happy with either of them at 10. I would love to see us with a choice of Greedy or one of the Devin's at 10 ( I prefer Bush, I think he is equal athletically but reads plays better and is a bit more instinctive) and then trading back up in the first for Dexter. Adding 2 more pieces like this to this defense would be scary.
                    I think there is tight end and o-line talent to be found in later rounds. Thanks for all the effort you put in to this!

                      I really don't understand the integrity of your process, especially regarding stuff like your take on Murray.

                      You claim that it's all based on tape, but then you adjust it all and play around with your rankings based on what you think will happen in the draft. What's the point of that if you're not going to include the guy most people think will go first overall?

                      I appreciate the amount of serious content you provide for the forum, but it seems to undermine itself in a lot of ways.

                        There is hope!
