2011 NFL Draft Consensus Big Board

I thought it would be interesting to combine some of the prominent 2011 NFL Draft Big Boards to form one consensus big board.

Below are the average big board position of the top prospects in the 2011 NFL Draft. I looked at seven different big boards: Mel Kiper (ESPN), Todd McShay (ESPN), Rob Rang (CBS), Scott Wright (, Tony Pauline (Sports Illustrated), Wes Bunting's (NFP) and Mike Mayock (NFL Network; just added).

Go read Bunting's breakdown for his Big Board and you'll see there is a method to his madness... It is a different perspective, but it makes some sense. Plus, doing a consensus big board, it is good to have an outlier.

Well if Buntings big board for the 2010 draft was in fact:

Sam Bradford
Ndamekan Suh
Devin McCourty
Maurkice Pouncy?
(just with the correct spelling)

i think he pretty much nailed it. Bradford went on to become the offensive rookie of the year. Suh was awarded with the defensive rookie of the year award and both Pouncey and McCourty went to the pro bowl? A Big Board is not about where players will go in the draft it is about Pure Talent.

That does not mean Pouncey should have went 4th in the draft. Simply because Centers positional value are not high enough. But he could still be the 4th best player if you ignore positional value which a true big board is all about..

Spurzo the packers are overrated! They didnt win the sb in a dominating way! pittsburgh had 3 turnovers n still had a chance to win the game at the end! The packers showed up to play that game n the steelets showed up too late... Packers won, simple as that....but the steelers are not on the decline....the nfls defensive mvp was hurt throughout the season n it showed in the sb...they have a bunch of young talent...seriously do some actual research before u try n give your dumb ass opinion!!! I agree bunting is kinda retarded.... By the way whos your team spurzo???

From an evaluation standpoint, overall, Bunting has the best grades of the group ( though Dareus and Fairley should be flipped ). From a mock standpoint, perhaps not so much. Sadly, mockers can't tell the difference between a grade and a draft position and worse yet, most mockers think they have a clue about football and get their panties in a wad when someone states the truth that they disagree with, such as Bowers not being a top flight player. No, Bunting needs to stay to give the Kipers & McShays of the world some sanity checks. Sorry if that doesn't match up with your pre-conceived notions.

Bunting's rankings seem horrible, this guy gets paid to write about football?? As for it making sense for a center to be ranked number 4, that is just ridiculous. A center isn't a valuable enough position to make it that high. That's why nobody ever drafts centers that early in a draft. Pouncey seems to have had a really good rookie season (not that I could ever tell or bother watching a center) but I love the pathetic steeler excuse. IF we had pouncey I strongly believe we blah blah blah, get over it you lost to a better team who were without their defensive leader for over half the game. You have a fat overrated qb who threw a terrible pick six and your team is on the decline. I wonder if Wes Bunting has ever watched football??

If Bunting's so on it with his picks...I would expect his top 4 to be?...
Sam Bradford
Ndamekan Suh
Devin McCourty
Maurkice Pouncy?
How did the Pats get McCourty at #28?
There were a few good players between #3 and #28

Steven...don't be stupid...Pouncey is the best rookie center to come out in a long time(since mangold)...What you don't know is that coaches and other players also have a saying in the voting to the probowl...not just fans! As a steelers fan our line improved so much as opposed to last year(and this year we had both our starting tackles lost all season to injury!)...Our middle of the line was dominant mainly due to Kemo and Pouncey...If Pouncey was at the SB I strongly believe that we would of won that game...we were running all over the packers D...but if you watch closely we were still able to run the ball with Legursky...the mendenhall fumble was becuase Legursky missed a block(as well as David Johnson our FB/TE)...If pouncey would of been there that would of never of happened....Seriously watch more Steelers games and you'll see what type of impact he brings to the table for the Steelers...Hey Steeler fans are not the only one's saying this...its people all over the NFL Network and ESPN....By the way...I don't think Mike is as good as Maurkice so we'll see.....

Having Pouncey #4 on your Big Board is just unacceptable. Perhaps 15-20 would have been better... if even. According to Profootballfocus, he had a ridiculously overrated Rookie Season. The only people saying he was good was Steeler fans, then everyone thought because they were saying it, he was actually good. Which fan is capable of evaluating offensive linemen, and which fan has the time to watch all the other centers and conclude Pouncey is better than them all? To prove a point, almost all the starting Steeler offensive linemen were among the AFC leaders in FAN pro bowl voting. That's pretty sad.

Thanks for all the hard work walt! One of my favorite sites out there. I gotta say i like having a variety of perspectives. As far as bunting's rankings go there is a method to the madness, check this.

He breaks down why he has harris ahead of amukamara. As a lions fan i may not agree but is nice to have a differing perspective than the norm.

You know last year Buntin had Maurkice Pouncey as #4 on his big board.

That doesn't look so stupid know does it?
