Some real surprises on this list, definitely not what a lot of the mainstream experts are putting out there. With how low/high some guys are, I feel the need to take a closer look, especially with Wentz, Ogbah, and Dixon. HonestlyDixon's name being that high was really unexpected. I've watched his 2014 tape and didn't see much to indicate him being more than a change of pace guy at best. Aguayo is unexpectedly high as well since his FG% has dropped 15 points since 2013.

Don 't know a lot about Joshua Garnett  (OL) of Stanford. But they always have a solid running game, and this year had a great running game. I wonder how high he will be picked?

Here is our scouting report on Josh Garnett: http://profootballspot.com/nfl-draft/scouting-reports-database/2016-draft-prospects/offensive-guard/joshua-garnett-2016-nfl-draft-scouting-report-r16/

Right now the general buzz around him seems to be a Day 2 pick (rounds 2-3).

I hope the Cowboys, Browns and 9ers all think as little of Wentz as you do. Id love to see him slide to a point where a trade would be possible for the Broncos to snatch him up.

Dixon has the potential to be a legitimate three-down back, but will start as a change of pace guy for sure. For Aguayo, his drop in accuracy concerns me as well, but I think his overall body will put him high on boards.

Very interesting to see Carson Wentz outside the top 30 of the big board, when it seems at this point he's likely to go #2 to the Browns. 

I don't honestly think Wentz is going to explode as much as most do, but I think a team like the Jets might take a chance on him as a project if he makes it there.

Just want to point our that the big board is not indicative of draft order, team needs, positional depth, historical trends, etc.

This is more or less a ranking of the player's pure talent mixed with the impact we think they will have at the next level (in comparison to the rest of the draft class).

Is Jaylon Smith's being drafted in the 1st and sitting his rookie season just accepted by everyone? I don't watch too much CFB, so I need to know if he's really worth that kind of investment. Last I heard, he's not playable at all.

That's what makes the draft so exciting is you simply don't know if teams are going to reach for a player they need or whether they simply fall in love with a specific player. Seems this is what's happening with the Browns and Wentz this year.

I think if he falls for whatever reason in the draft teams like the Jets and Broncos would love to take him and develop him to be a starter in the next few years. Where would this leave Geno Smith however if the Jets draft a QB in the first round?

Overall, I think it's a good big board. But if he can't play his first year and get caught up to the speed of the NFL, will he really be an impactful player in the pros any time soon?

Whoever gets Ezekiel Elliott gonna have a workhorse for at least the next 5 years

I couldn't agree more. I really feel that he will be special. Almost an Eddie George type back but with better speed.

I may be in the minority of Myles Jack being in the top 3. He's a great athlete, but I just don't know if I'd spend a top 3 pick on him.

I see Jack as a 10-20 type pick but he could be one of those guys who outdoes his projections.

I absolutely agree with you. I just don't know what I'm getting if I draft him top 5 because i don't even know what position he'd play.
