NFL Draft Prospects | Power Ranking The Top Contenders For The No. 1 Pick In The 2013 NFL Draft
By Jeff Roemer, Bleacher Report
This is my first treatment of the 2013 NFL draft and as relevant and informative as these names may be, I also assert that it is grossly early to start worrying about where different prospects will project and trying to identify who will be the No. 1 overall pick.
From my perspective as a writer/fanalyst, the late summer and early fall is about continuing to deepen the familiarity with hundreds of the top players entering the college football season and building assessments. There is a peculiar culture in the draftnik community about being the first, or “getting in early”, to render a certain opinion on a prospect.
I admit that even I have been swept into it a few times over Twitter.
But I have also stated, as I will here, and firmly believe that proper NFL prospect evaluation has little to do with being first and everything to do with being correct.
