    Cimmy's Look into the Upcoming HK Draft
    As we wind closer to the end of the season, it is becoming more and more prevalent that it is nearly time for the most exciting time in Hard Knocks.​
    The offseason.​
    That only means one thing is coming.​
    The draft.​
    It is time to start taking a look at the biggest draft prospects, prior to the combine and offseason workouts.​
    Cimmy's Top 5
    A basic look into the top talent.​
    [​IMG]
    1. WR Trent Platt - Clemson
    A 6'4", 236 LB monster, Platt had been on many draft radar's all season long. One of the best set of hands to come out of college football in a while, many are comparing him to Detroit's Calvin Johnson. Is he on that level? We may have found Optimus Prime.​
    [​IMG]
    2. DE David Rozier - UNC
    North Carolina is quickly becoming DLine U as Rozier joins a pretty talented group of defensive lineman entering the NFL including Quinton Coples and Marvin Austin, as well as draft prospect teammate Kevonte Starr. Rozier is 3rd in the country in sacks and 2nd in the ACC in tackles. What makes him so dynamic is his acceleration off the ball.​
    [​IMG]
    3. HB Sean Moorhouse - WVU
    West Virginia hasn't had a nationally recognized running back since Noel Devine. Moorhouse has quickly become a household name this season and is not only lighting up the score board, but opposing defenses as well. He stands at 5'11", so not a short back by any means, but defenses seem to have trouble finding this shifty back as he can turn on a dime.​
    [​IMG]
    4. MLB Logan Bollinger - South Carolina
    Bollinger may be the best LB in what is likely to be a not so talented LB class this season. Don't let that hold you back. The class may not be a cesspool of LBs, but even if it were, Bollinger would be head to toe the best in the class. One of the more aggressive LBs of late, Bollinger makes plays and flies all over the field. It is rare to see him not be a part of the final tackle, which may be why he is the NCAA leader in that category.​
    [​IMG]
    5. QB Don Leoni - Michigan
    The "Don" of Ann Arbor, Leoni has led the Wolverines to what is shaping up to be their first trip to the Big 10 Championship since its inauguration. He leads the Big10 in Pass Efficiency and Touchdowns. A very accurate passer that should fit well in a Pro Style offense.​
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------​
    That is the early Top 5 heading into the 12th week of the HK Season. As the Draft gets closer, this is very likely to change. Here is a look at a more positional break down of some of the top talent.​

    Awesome job, by the way there are only 15 OT's available in this year's draft. Only 11 OG's. Pretty amazing.

    Yeah, it is a bit amazing how thin the OLine prospects are. Usually you can afford to hold out on offensive line and get a good one late, but I really hope guys that need OLine help realize how thin the talent pool is and get it when its good. It is so typical for lineman to fall because guys are searching for other needs and don't consider the offense line to be that big of a deal.

    Also looking at CB and DT, I haven't found a whole lot of skill, so those will be thin pick em's too. I think the deeper positions that guys can wait on if they need to are going to be WR, HB...like they usually are, but also S and OLB. I know I said LB is thin with talent, but there are some decent picks there that can get picked up in later rounds if you're just looking for depth or guys that can just get the job done.

    that's just rude, how dare they think that O-Linemen aren't a big deal

    I can't wait to scout. I've got 33000 points saved up, and should have close to 60K based on scouting points from last year

    I was too man but I blew my load last night and scouted every 3-4 MLB and DT in the draft class + all wrs and tight ends. I should make a post for guys on it like Cimmy did.

    Not using these scouting points is quite possibly the toughest thing I have ever done, and I have taken two bar exams.

    Just a heads up.. Not gonna go into much detail bc you guys can figure it out, but one of these top 3 QB's is a complete BUST. Scout wisely.

    The list I put out above has nothing to do with any scouting I have done. It is really just what the game Projected as when guys would be picked. The plan is as the draft gets closer to MAYBE add a little of flair from my scouting to certain guys, as far as movement up and down the board, but we'll see...

    I don't want to give anyone away ;)

    All i know is that Trent Platt looks like a stud. 6'4" 235 lb WR is sick.

    Blair Scott is a 6'4" 233 WR as well. Looks like the year of the big WR;
