My apologies for the delay in moving on to the next part of our Big Board, ladies and gentlemen. We'll get back on track here, and should remain on track the rest of the way.
503 people cast their votes for spots 26-30 on our 2014 Daily Norseman Big Board, and here's who will occupy those spots:
|Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State||67||66||55||51||40||906|
|LaMarcus Joyner, CB, Florida State||49||51||45||45||29||703|
|Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California||47||46||50||33||38||673|
|Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan||64||36||37||24||25||648|
|Dee Ford, DE, Auburn||35||46||45||43||36||616|
So, our complete Big Board so far 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|
|11||Mike Evans||WR||Texas A&M|
|14||Jake Matthews||OT||Texas A&M|
|16||Derek Carr||QB||Fresno State|
|17||Ryan Shazier||LB||Ohio State|
|19||Kyle Fuller||CB||Virginia Tech|
|22||Eric Ebron||TE||North Carolina|
|23||Jason Verrett||CB||Texas Christian|
|25||Louis Nix||DT||Notre Dame|
|26||Bradley Roby||CB||Ohio State|
|27||LaMarcus Joyner||CB||Florida State|
|28||Marqise Lee||WR||Southern California|
Now we're moving on to spots 31-35 on the big board, and the rules will remain the same.
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 31-35 on our big board!
