Broaddus Big Board: Carradine, Williams Crack Top 25


With a week until the 2013 NFL Draft, here is my second to last Big Board:

  • Some changes from last week, I have put Lane Johnson ahead of the two guards, Jonathan Cooper and Chance Warmack. Johnson is now more in line with the other two tackles Fisher and Joeckel. He deserves to be in that spot in the top eight.
  • Had Tavon Austin in the top ten last week, I still love the player but this week I drop him three spots and move up Dion Jordan and Xavier Rhodes up in the standings. Jordan might be the best rush end in this draft and the more I study Rhodes, he makes me like him just as much as Milliner.
  • Desmond Trufant moves up a few spots inside the top 20. Trufant like Rhodes is one of those players that the more you study him, the more you realize that he will come in and be a starter from day one. The character stuff might hurt him on some draft boards but he is a talented player.
  • Slyvester Williams and Tank Carradine are new adds to the Big Board. Williams has some interesting position flexibility inside at tackle playing the one or the three. Carradine is coming off injury but in my view is just as good of a player as Bjoern Werner who dropped down a few spots. I could see Williams as a nice option for a trade back situation if that presents itself.
