Default Jadeveon Clowney tops Ultimate ESPN 300 list.

http://espn.go.com/college-sports/re...imate-espn-300

"Jadeveon Clowney
South Carolina | DE | Class of 2011 rank: 1

RecruitingNation scouting report: Right off the bat Clowney grabs your attention with a very impressive physical presence. ... He looks to enjoy contact and will deliver some big hits. As a pass rusher he is tough to contain as he uses his long limbs and hands to club and punch by blockers. He also can be very quick off the ball. He plays with a good motor and will pursue to the ball. He also possesses excellent straight-line game speed, which allows him to be a factor on plays all over the field and has good overall athleticism. Full report Insider
College accolades: Unanimous All-American. Hendricks Award winner. SEC Defensive POY. Two-time, first-team All-SEC. SEC Freshman of the Year. Career statistics (3 years): 130 total tackles, 47 TFL, 24 sacks, 9 FFs."

List is filled with prospects going back to the 2006 draft class.

This list made no sense, except for Clowney being #1

Manti Te'o
Notre Dame | OLB | Class of 2009 rank: 2

RecruitingNation scouting report: Te'o appears to be a man among boys on film, a player whose physical weaknesses are difficult to spot. Plays fast and with great intensity. Fills inside with a good base and shows great power and strength when taking on pulling linemen and fullbacks at the point of attack. Full report Insider
College accolades: Unanimous All-American. Walter Camp national POY. Heisman runner-up. Winner of Nagurski, Bednarik, Butkus, Lott and Lombardi Awards. Career statistics (4 years): 437 total tackles, 34 TFL, 8.5 sacks, 7 INTs.

Considering they had him ranked 2nd in the entire 2009 class and he had a very good college career, it's not a stretch at all.

I agree considering Luke Kuechly did more in 3 years. Seriously 532 tackles in 3 years? :


Luke Kuechly
Boston College | OLB | Class of 2009 rank: NR


RecruitingNation scouting report: Difficult to find many physical flaws in Kuechly on film, and you actually see how well-rounded of a linebacker he is the more you watch. Is far from done physically developing as his tall, rangy, well-built frame should continue to add good bulk and tip the scales at the 240-pound range in college while retaining his current speed and athleticism. Full report
College accolades: Winner of the Butkus, Nagurski and Lombardi Awards. Two-time first-team All-American. Career statistics (3 years): ACC-record 532 total tackles, 3 sacks, 7 INTs.

That literally makes no sense. They've already judged the kids as recruits, thus their original rankings. This has everything to do with being college players.

Everything? It says they blended what they know now with what they knew then. So, yes, it does take into account what they did as college players, but it also includes the recruiting aspect of it.

I'd love to know the formula they use to change a players rank based on stats that haven't changed since the initial rankings.

Manti Te'o didn't even rank in the top 50 among the LB's his SR year, yet he went to a Heisman ceremony. He made some INTs and got some PR, that is all. Look what happened when he was stacked against others at his position at the combines.

so we have determined that these rankings are nothing more than a popularity contest?

But ESPN's blog has him As the 15th best player in the SEC. Which is it?

Two things I notice with this list. How the heck is Cam Newton 27th? He was unstoppable in college. And number two, one thing this shows me is, more often than not, the high ranked players turned out darn well.
