2011 NFL Draft: The Mike Mayock Top Fives

New, comments

NFL.com's Mike Mayock has updated his top 5 prospects at every position, and there are a couple of interesting things in there.  The most notable one is that he has moved Alabama's Marcell Dareus ahead of Auburn's Nick Fairley as the best available defensive tackle.  That goes against what pretty much everyone else out there is saying.  I guess you can take that with a grain of salt because, as Evan Silva mentions in the post linked above, Mayock had Gerald McCoy ranked ahead of Ndamukong Suh last year.

The other interesting ranking that I see is quarterbacks:

1. Blaine Gabbert, Missouri
2. Jake Locker, Washington
3. Cam Newton, Auburn
4. Ryan Mallett, Arkansas
5. Andy Dalton, TCU

No Christian Ponder on that list.  Ponder's stock has been rising since the Senior Bowl, but not in the eyes of Mayock apparently.  It is is also worth noting that he still has Locker #2 because his stock has falling since the Senior Bowl.
