    According to The Huddle Report's scores for top-100 rankings over the past three years, the most accurate top-100 list is Rick Gosselin's, followed by The Huddle Report's, Pro Football Weekly's and Draft Countdown's.

    I've taken those four final top-100 lists for this year and created a composite list, with each source weighted based on their average accuracy (and double the weight for Gosselin). Here's the resulting top 127, which includes every player who appeared on at least one top-100 list --

    Dang, we are out of range for a lot of good players. Jerry is going to have to move up 10-15 spots or move down and pick up some more 3r & 4th rounders.

    Thanks for the list, Adam

    Ideally, this is what I would like to happen:

    1) Trade down about 6-10 spots in Round 2 and receive extra early-mid 4th (easier said than done).

    2) #57-61: Rashad Johnson, S, Alabama

    3) #69: Derrick Williams, WR/KR/PR, Penn State

    4) #101: Roy Miller, DT, Texas

    5) #105-115: T.J. Lang, G/C, Eastern Michigan

    6) #117: Scott McKillop, ILB, Purdue

    Lots of glue guys in your mock. Can't have enough hard workers.

    I'd love to move down 5-7 spots and pick up another 4th rounder.

    I think there's so much talent available in the 3rd and 4th rounds.

    I agree, the middle rounds are chock full of value players. Most of my pet cats were middle rounders at the start of all this but now they've shot up the boards, 75% of them are now in the top 100.


    But I want my pet cats! :D

    That's what I was thinking.

    It might take a small trade up to get one of English, Nicks, Robiskie, Chung, or Barwin.

    Of course, the dumb teams in the draft will always make some head-scratching moves that will push some of these guys down.

    BTW, Mosley mentioned Loadholt today. Looks like 51 wouldn't be a reach for him.

    Loadholt surely fits Houck's prototype. I hope we can do better, but there's certainly worse than him at 51.

    That is a good looking list.

    I was reading Bunting just now. He says don't be surprised if Delmas goes at the end of round 1.

    That brings us to McBath. The Bears really like him. Their southwest scout is their go to guy in regards to DBs. They like a WR and S we like. Their GM talked up Massaquoi and talked down Rashad Johnson. He did say that he wanted a little more "sprinkle on top" if he drafted a WR in round 2. That isn't Massaquoi, imo. That's Harvin. They have Earl Bennett on their team. He drafted 4 SEC players in his first 5 picks last year.

    If McBath is as good as Dallas says he is, I would like to have him. I'm convinced now that Dallas is dead serious about cover safeties. Look at Sensabaugh. He fits the mold.

    I think you can rule out:

    Chung
    Moore
    Vaughn

    I would like to have:

    2. Max Unger/Mohamed Massaquoi
    3. Juquin Iglesias/Lawrence Sibury Jr.
    4. Jason Williams
    4. Darcel McBath


    The Cowboys are going to have to move a little.
