    Rick Gosselin's top 100 list is out:

    NFL draft: Rick Gosselin's Top 100 | Rick Gosselin Columns | Sports News | News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News

    Some interesting rankings:

    1. Aaron Curry, LB
    6. Tyson Jackson, DE
    9. BJ Raji, DT
    10. Malcolm Jenkins, CB
    11. Andre Smith, OT

    16. Knowshon Moreno, RB
    18. Percy Harvin, WR
    20. Brian Cushing, LB
    22. Brandon Pettigrew, TE
    23. Clay Matthews, LB

    30. Donald Brown, RB
    32. Eric Wood, OG/C
    35. Louis Delmas, S
    36. Paul Kruger, DE/OLB - this seems awfully high for Kruger
    40. Connor Barwin, DE/OLB
    43. Jarron Gilbert, DE/DT
    44. Clint Sintim, LB
    45. Larry English, DE/OLB
    47. William Moore, S
    48. Sean Smith, CB/S
    51. Patrick Chung, S
    53. Everette Brown, DE - boy, this is surprising even given Brown falling
    56. Pat White, QB/WR
    58. Ron Brace, DT
    62. Michael Johnson, DE
    63. William Beatty, OT - this is also surprising to me
    67. Lawrence Sidbury, DE
    68. Mike Wallace, WR
    71. James Casey, TE
    75. Lardarius Webb, CB
    76. Sebastian Vollmer, OT - highest rated non-combine player on the board
    78. Rashad Johnson, S
    84. Jason Williams, LB
    89. Chip Vaughn, S

    Gosselin doesn't have Jamon Meredith in his top 100.

    Reportedly, we have enough ammo to trade up to #10. Based on these rankings, the targets are slim.

    Like them or not. They're all within reach of #23. IMHO, they don't all fit. But if we select one from the list, obviously he's the one I think does. :rofl:

    Has risen into the late first in some mocks, therefore not a reach at all for #23. I doubt it though, considering the other quality options later on at the same position.

    Solid possibility for #34 -- but there are other Safety options later on.

    Some here have him as a legitimate candidate for #23 -- but I never have. He's within reach of where I'd select him -- which is at #34.

    Has quite a few supporters on this board. Could make it to #47.

    Would surprise many here if he were selected over Barwin and English. But I won't be surprised at all.

    One of the trio of DE/OLB options. He's a legitimate Pats prospect.

    The Pats are really high on him (sorry no link). My #2 Safety.

    My #1 Safety -- fairly ranked.

    He's a very late slider -- something's awry. Still my favorite pass rusher.

    I do hope we draft him. An exciting player.

    Was once considered a #23 candidate by some. This is good considering the Pats slots.

    Watch these three for the Pats.

    Both Rick and Nolan have Clint Sintim ahead of Everette Brown. I like both writers, but I think they are smoking crack here. I can't think of a situation that would tick me off more than taking Clint Sintim with Everette Brown still on the board.

    I can't say I'd go nuts about it. 13 sacks on the season from a 4-3 DE versus 10 sacks from a 3-4 OLB. Sintim is very underrated by many folks, especially given that he's bigger than Everette Brown.

    Re: Goose's top 100 Draft prospects

    I was surprised to see William Beatty from UConn so low as well. Gosselin knows his stuff, maybe Beatty is not as well liked in the personnel world as he is on this forum. I would suppose he'll go higher than where he is ranked.

    Loadholt above Will Beatty.

    That's a surprise, not a pick I would make.

    On the other hand, Gosselin gets this from the scouts:

    "Darren McFadden was a better prospect than any running back on this draft board, as was Glenn Dorsey at defensive tackle. Most NFL talent evaluators would take Jerod Mayo, the best linebacker in the 2008 NFL draft, over Aaron Curry, the best linebacker in this draft."

    McFadden is fantastic, but it would not surprise me to see one of the top 3 have a better career than him. Right now, if given the choice, I take BJ Raji over Dorsey. And, if the scouts were so high on Mayo (after the fact) where were they on him last year when both Rivers and Gholston were ranked higher?

    I think Maclin that high is crazy.
