The three best, and most accurate current NFL draft analysts (IMO) are Gosselin, Nawrocki and Mayock. In their pre draft top 100 rankings, Mayock had Mayo at #8, Nawricki at #15 and Gosselin at #19. That averages out to #14. Mayo was a "fast riser" as the draft approached. The Pats took him at #10, which is where they had to take him to ensure they could get him ahead of Denver at #12, which was looking for an Al Wilson clone, and Detroit at #15. As for Wheatley, in their predraft rankings Mayock had him at #64, Nawrocki at #80 and Gosselin at #96. That averages out to #80. He was also a fast riser as the draft approached. The Pats took him at #62, ahead of several teams who likely coveted him. Mayo and Wheatley are not only quality players, but IMO represented solid value for their draft slots.
