We're moving right along to the next five spots on the Daily Norseman 2014 Big Board, folks. . .a little earlier than normal because, well, I made a mistake in attempting to get the next board set up a little bit ahead of time. My apologies, and I will effort not to let it happen again.
Here were the guys that made it into the 6-10 spots on our board, with 746 people casting their votes:
|Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA||156||153||91||73||70||1881|
|Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida||214||72||63||45||80||1717|
|C.J. Mosley, LB, Alabama||116||108||100||83||78||1556|
|Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State||70||107||120||80||84||1382|
|Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State||37||57||80||102||62||919|
That means that the Big Board, as it stands right now, looks like this:
|2||Jadeveon Clowney||DE||South Carolina|
|5||Johnny Manziel||QB||Texas A&M|
|7||Blake Bortles||QB||Central Florida|
|9||Justin Gilbert||CB||Oklahoma State|
|10||Darqueze Dennard||CB||Michigan State|
Pretty impressive list thus far, and now we get to continue adding to it!
Remember, this is not a mock draft and not a projection of what you think other teams will do or who you think will be available. Basically, ask yourself this question:
"If the Minnesota Vikings were on the clock in the 2014 NFL Draft and they could select any of these players, who would I want them to take?"
I understand that the MtD rankings aren't perfect, but for the most part they're pretty darn good, and it's the easiest list for us to use.
You will get to rank your Top 5 players from the list available. Points will be allotted as follows:
First-place vote = 5 points
Second-place vote = 4 points
Third-place vote = 3 points
Fourth-place vote = 2 points
Fifth-place vote = 1 point
After we determine who winds up in spots 11-15 on our big board, those names will be removed and replaced with the next five names on the Mocking the Draft rankings.
So, with that, feel free to have at it to determine who sits in spots 11-15 on our big board!
