Call Me A Fool--My 2009 Denver Draft Board

We'll see how long before it disappears down the board, huh?  You'd have to be a fool to try doing this in the first place, and doubly foolish to try and compete with Cutler drama, but here it goes:

Quick notes:  No QBs listed, no OT, no K/P, no prioritization given to KR/PR ability (but there are many in the mix).  i do have an "other " category, where I will list anyone that you guys will swear on your mother's name by.  Ted Bartlett has every assurance that Sean Smith has what it takes, so I have included him as a "for sure" 2nd rounder, even though I haven't watched diddly on him.  I'll include anyone that can have a solid case made for him.

Also in each category, you'll notice some names in bold, some in italics:  Bold=a player who is solidly projected for that particular round.  italic=A player projected for that round, but who could go early in the next round as well.

I've used an aggregate ranking from www.nfldraftscout.com, so it is more accurate across the width and breadth of the draft, but may miss on any specific player.

I repeated some rounds just to make the chart easier to read and assess.  tis nice to see what is going on in either round ahead and behind you, so rounds 3 and 5 are on two charts each.

Also, every name takes you to their MHR link, which includes highlight videos, offsite links and every significant scouting report I could find on them, including Walter football, Scott Wright's Draftcountdown, etc. plus lots of articles and links.  There are well over 600 scouting reports and links in there so give em a look.  Also, there are links to good statements and articles about each prospect from around MHR and SBNation.  [I'll get the WRs uploaded asap, Cutler news bumped it off my to-do list temporarily.]

I'll be back soon to do some in depth commentary on it.
