Don't be afraid to go with your first instinct and make a controversial ranking if you feel it is the right one. Here's mine:

1. R. Griffin III - strong arm, blazing speed, fantastic feel for the pocket and great decision maker
2. A. Luck - prototypical size, strong in the pocket, accurate on the run, great mechanics, very good decision maker
3. R. Tannehill - good accuracy, midrange velocity, and scrambler, good size
4. B. Weeden - solid field awareness, solid mechanics, good arm

1. T. Richardson - smart runner, secure ball handler, low center of gravity, strong
2. D. Martin - good vision, adequate in the passing game, and agile runner
3. L. Miller - blazing fast, agile, low to the ground and decisive
4. D. Wilson - at one point thought he was the most talented runner, just wildly inconsistent
5. I. Pead - good but not great athlete with a big frame and good decisiveness

1. S. Hill - biggest freak in the draft with the most potential
2. M. Floyd - this years jon baldwin but with more freakish ability & speed
3. J. Blackmon - competitive gamer with good instincts, work ethic and athleticism
4. R. Randle - surprisingly big and fast guy who knows how to get open and get YAC
5. A. Jeffery - deceiving speed with a dominating frame; think marques colston
6. J. Adams - has potential to be best slot receiver in draft with enough know how and speed to split out
7. K. Wright - questionable work ethic but everything else is there except size
8. M. McNutt - consistent player, long arms, good hands, runs well
9. R. Boyles - great field awareness, athleticism and route running
10. M. Sanu - physically gifted athlete with good speed and strength
11. A. Jenkins - reliable hands catcher and runs good routes
