    Here is an updated draft value board from Pro Football Weekly with notations that I have not seen anywhere else.

    Probably by next week he will have one color coded as he has done the past couple of years.

    ProFootballWeekly.com - PFW's exclusive draft value board

    Have fun ripping into it.

    I'm getting more and more sold on going up some for Hightower.

    Some things that stick out:

    Jonathan Martin all the way down at 2C
    Brewster back at 6A
    Criner (where he belongs) at 6B
    Childs at 6B despite the fast 40

    Kirkpatrick at 1C, within range of the Pats
    Devon Still at 2B (no thanks, but it's interesting)
    McClellin at 2C (yes please!)
    Bobbie Wagner at 3B (I think he's a Pats target early-mid 2)
    Janoris Jenkins 3A

    Don't let OTG see this. He'll be up all night using his power point, filling in quotations and letters for every player on that list.

    Another guy that seems to be rising some is Chandler Jones, who I've taken a interest in as of late.

    I'm curious as what precipitated Devon Still's fall. I've not seen anything adverse about him but it must be more than other DT's moving up boards. PFW isn't the first to have him in the second round.

    As for Janoris Jenkins, 3A is starting to sound right after the latest revelations.

    Could someone please explain to me all the end-of-1st-round love for Chandler Jones?
    Because I don't get it - at all. There are over a half-dozen front 7 players placed the same or behind him
    whom I would draft ahead of him.

    So strong safety Brandon Taylor from LSU is completely off the board?

    Then I wish that they would've sent me some when I received their pre-draft issue
    in the mail this week.
    It's not just PFW who gives Jones a near 1st-round grade, however. Both NFLDraftScout
    & Draft Countdown currently rank him 37th overall.

    They've updated it again as of 4/20. Kendall Wright and Mike Adams in the 3rd round, Devon Still back in the first, Brandon Weeden late first and other movers.

    Yep, the more I look at it he is the player I want the most in the 1st who could be available. he also makes sense because Belichick has a history of going for proven producers in the 1st and Hightower has both the upside as a pro and the production on film. I was hoping he would slip far enough to be there at #27 but think it may take a move, which would kind of suck as they have more limited draft capital this year than in the past. If it takes a move up 3-5 spots then I'm for it because it means they really like him and if so adding him to their current unit should really help.


    I don't think Belichick likes taking OLB projects high and why we pull our hair out every year when he passes the pass rushers we all want up, but he's also looking at a much bigger picture with much more information. This year the number of OLB projects that may well be there in the first is off the charts, and he can take them if he wants, but none really have the sense of surety he usually wants in the first so he's more likely to go for the CB/DL/ or OL who drops than take the college DE projected as an OLB in a 3-4.
