Jon’s Official Top 500 for the 2014 NFL Draft

May 9, 2014

Below is my official Top 500. It’s a list that takes months of scouting and analysis to compile so I hope you enjoy it half as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it. A few caveats are in order though:

1) It’s not 500 players. No it’s 488 as I just pick a nice round number and sometimes overshoot it and sometimes go under. I have 299 players that I have a draftable grade on (Rounds 1-7) then another 189 players that I either have a free agent, camp invite or undraftable grade on. Undraftable means I want nothing to do with them, camp invite means they flashed at times so they might be worth a look as a “body” in training camp and free agent means I’m interested but barely not enough to give a draftable grade on.

2) Safety. I scouted the Top 5 safeties on my board (In order: Calvin Pryor, Deone Bucannon, Haha Clinton-Dix, Jimmie Ward and Terrance Brooks) yet ran out of time and didn’t get to scout the rest of the safety class. To make my draft board complete I took my safety rankings of #6-38 from which does a great job. I disagree with some of them already, I had a 4th round grade on Tre Boston and a late 3rd on Ahmad Dixon, yet beggars can’t be choosers so I’m just inserting them into my board as is.

3) I didn’t rank the free agents, camp invites or undraftable players. I have them in order by position and they are ranked within their position but not overall aka Eric Ward is the first free agent listed but that’s only because he’s my #1 ranked WR among free agents, that doesn’t mean he’s ranked higher than my #1 RB free agent Tyler Gaffney.
