    Well to counter, I'd say that to begin, 1 start at OC does not make you an OC prospect worthy of a Top 15 selection.

    Secondly, it absolutely IS rare for centers to get drafted before #18. Mike Pouncey is the only OC to go Top 15 since who knows when.

    I'm not saying it's impossible that Warmack and Cooper go before #18, I'm just saying it flies completely in the face of history and it's incredibly unlikely.

    That Quesenberry (sp?) kid looked nice when doing drills as an OG... Anyone know anything about him?

    I said: "I think some teams might see Cooper as both an OG an OC."

    I was providing the 1-start as info, not proof.
    Since the previous year when Maurkice Pouncey was drafted at #15.

    I agree that OGs tend to drop below projections like DeCastro and that an OG in the top-10 would highly unlikely; however, they have been drafted before or around #18 (Mike Iupati, 17th).

    The other issue is that this seems to be a draft void of spectacular talent at the very top. There is not an Andrew Luck in this draft. There's not even a Cam Newton or Sam Bradshaw to push other prospects down.
