Updated Big Board: 9/8/10


Below is the Updated NFL Draft Prospect Big Board as of September 8th 2010.  Please make sure to stop by our Scouting Report Page to see in-depth analysis on each of the NFL Draft Prospects.  NFL Mocks also continues to put together updated NFL Mock Drafts and those can be found on the top menu under Mock Drafts or in our Mock Draft Database.  There has been some movement on the Board since our original was developed way back in early May.  Lets hear your thoughts, who are we missing?  Below you will find the updated Big Board as well as a few thoughts on the movers.

Rising Prospects:

Patrick Peterson- Peterson had an electrifying opening weekend.  Not only did he show his lock down coverage ability he also showed his amazing return abilities.  Peterson had an 87 yard punt return for a TD and a combined total of 257 return yards.  Peterson now sits at #1 on our Big Board and we feel that he is going to be a great pro.

Andrew Luck- Luck had a very impressive first game and showed why he is considered one of the best draft eligible prospects.  He was an accurate 17-23 with 316 yards and 4 touchdowns.  While Luck’s performance was against less competition it is still important to consider every performance.  Luck will have more challenging games as the season progresses.

Akeem Ayers-  Even though the Bruins lost Ayers still filled up the stats sheet.  He was all over the field putting together an impressive stat line that includes 11 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 1 sack, 1 Pass Break Up, and 2 Forced Fumbles.  Ayers is a disruptive force and has a bright future in the NFL.

Falling Prospects:

Evan Royster- Royster turned in an unimpressive performance against Youngstown State and look slow and off balanced.  Some of the blame is being placed on the shoulders of the offensive linemen but we expected more from Royster.  He fell off our Big Board and needs a good game against Alabama to get back on.

Joseph Barksdale- Barksdale also fell off our Big Board as he look a little over-matched this past weekend.  He didn’t show very good footwork and was slow when setting up in pass protection.  The pass rushers were able to utilize both speed and power moves to create pressure.  The main reason Barksdale has dropped is because he is looking more and more like a right tackle only.

On The Bubble: Evan Royster, Joesph Barksdale, Marcel Darceus, Nate Solder, Rodney Hudson, Ryan Kerrigan, Rahim Moore, Ryan Williams, Aaron Williams, Stefen Wisniewski
