    The reason I ask because the best way to draft is BPA. And if you feel comfortable with your top 10, you are set up to have a good draft.

    Who's in your Top 10 regardless of position?

    Nick Fairley
    Da'Quan Bowers
    Patrick Peterson
    A.J. Green
    Marcel Dareus
    Robert Quinn
    Blain Gabbert
    Prince Amukamara
    Von Miller
    Cam Jordan

    The one player above that just doesn't light my fire is Dareus.

    I think in a few weeks a QB will be in the top 10.

    How is Quinn ranked ahead of a guy like Fairley?

    The love Quinn gets is ridiculous, imo he's not even a top 5 defensive player

    Because he's a better talent?

    Fairley is only a 1 year wonder and has some character concerns.

    Quinn posted 11 sacks as a sophmore and if he had played this year he'd probably be the #1 pick. He's been out of sight out of mind for a lot of people, but he's a stud. He's a prototypcial rush End, I have a hard time not putting him in the elite category.

    A QB or 2 might be drafted in the top 10, but in terms of overall board none of them should sniff the top 10 overall prospects. Outside of Newton, none of them were dominating or even great in college and even though Newton was successful this year nothing he did translates to the NFL.

    I can understand people loving Quinn's physical attributes, but to say Fairley is a one year wonder and then in the same breath say if Quinn "would have" played he would have been #1 overall? I'm not sure I get that.

    I don't see how you can possibly tell who's a better talent off one year each, unless you mean who's the better athlete.

    Lol really? What are you saying? Quinn , who was suspended for ALL of 2010 doesn't have character concerns and only Fairley does? :rolleyes:

    There's a difference between playing poorly on the field in previous years(Fairley) and being suspended and missing the season(Quinn).

    Fairley was good and I have him in my top 5, but from the games I saw of Quinn last year I feel confident in giving him the edge right now.

    Dez lied to cover up something that wasn't even against the rules because he got nervous. A little different than actually doing something wrong.

    Clearly your biased if you believe Quinn is better than Fairley in part by Fairley being a one hit wonder and having character concerns

    Yeah, I would say there's a huge difference and it doesn't favor Quinn.

    I like both guys, but giving a guy a higher grade based purely on "could have", I can't agree with.

    But he is and does have character concerns. I never blame the prospects for when there is a situation with agents, that falls on adults taking advantage of a naive 19 year old kid. Fairley is the type of guy who curb stomps QBs after a knock down or sack, that's just a bad attitude.

    I give him the higher grade because based on game film he has produced at a high level his entire career on the field, Fairley has not.
