    This out from Wes Bunting at the National Football Post:

    NFP senior position rankings | National Football Post

    He has Mike Iupati as the top rated OG and Greg Hardy as the top rated DE. Most interesting is his 3-4 OLB rankings, where he ranks Ricky Sapp ahead of Eric Norwood and Jerry Hughes, and George Selvie 4th ahead of Sergio Kindle. I would probably rank Kindle, Hughes and Norwood as the top 3 guys (with Norwood also capable of playing 3-4 SILB, and all 3 guys capable of also playing 4-3 SAM).

    After looking at this is list, I see 2 blue chip prospects in this senior group, Cody and Suh, and several red chip prospects. It will be interesting to see how he rates each position once all the juniors are declared and graded.

    Very interesting to see Sapp listed as a 3-4 OLB. While I not a 100% fan of this player, I think that BB will see everything on tape that he needs to see in order to feel good about drafting Sapp high, without "projecting" Sapp. Whether or not Sapp displays the qualities on tape that BB needs to see is a different story.

    Another Clemson player that I think fits our offense extremely well is RB Spiller. Yesterday he threw for a touchdown, ran for a touchdown and caught a pass for a touchdown. Add in that he is gong to run a very fast 40 time and you can see how BB would be interested in this kid.

    Definitely the Percy Harvin of this draft. He'll be a huge asset in the 3rd down game if he can pass protect. Otherwise, he's a returner and slot receiver....which isn't bad.

    Here's the overall ratings from Bunting:

    So he can convert him into a DB? :confused:

    [Seriously, I understand the "versatility" idea, but given how little they seem to want anyone other than Brady throwing passes. . . .]
