Over the past couple of weeks I've posted a series of polls and invited you to vote for your top 10 prospects. It's important to note that these polls were about the top 10 prospects overall, not the top 10 guys for the Bills. The results - 2 OTs and 2 DTs in the top 6 and 0 QBs in the top 10 - suggest that most people voted for the 10 best, not the 10 best for Buffalo. Putting partisan interests aside is no easy task. Well done.
Here is the final list
- OT Luke Joeckel
- OLB Jarvis Jones
- DT Sharrif Floyd
- OT Eric Fisher
- CB Dee Milliner
- DT Star Lotuleli
- DE Bjoern Werner
- DE/OLB Ezekiel Ansah
- DE/OLB Dion Jordan
- OG Chance Warmack
WR Cordarrelle Patterson and QB Geno Smith lost out to Warmack for the final slot. The 8 others who were in the polls but never came close to being slotted in the top 10 were OT Lane Johnson, OG Jonathan Cooper, DE/OLB Barkevious Mingo, DT Sheldon Richardson, CB Xavier Rhodes, WR Keenan Allen, QB Matt Barkley, and QB Tyler Wilson. Prospects like S Kenny Vaccaro, CB Desmond Trufant, WR Travon Austin, OT DJ Fluker, ILB Alex Ogletree, DE Damontre Moore and TE Tyler Eifert weren't included in the top 20.
Below is a recap poll. What are your thoughts about the list that we compiled? Are these 10 guys the same 10 that you would rank as 1-10 on a non-team specific board, with either the same order or perhaps a different ranking of these 10 prospects? Or would your personal board - ONCE AGAIN NOT TAKING BUFFALO'S NEEDS INTO ACCOUNT - have one or more different players?
How close does the Rumblings Top 10 mesh with your personal top 10? (REMEMBER, THIS IS A GENERAL TOP 10 AND NOT THE TOP 10 BEST GUYS FOR BUFFALO.)
