Who are your Personal over rated and Under rated prospects....

and what are you using to base your opinion?

Personally I have been using www.draftbreakdown.com for their cut up's of prospects. I only used scouting reports and prospect rankings to get a consensus of who I should look at. I studied DB'S, DT'S, AND WR'S game cut up's quite a bit. I am going to limit each list to 1 player and am curious to hear your personal opinions as well as how you formed your opinions. So there is potentially some under rated sleepers I missed because the masses did not inform me to look them over.

Over rated
Safety - Jonathan Cyprien- Limited material to see, but what I saw does not make me think first round pick.

Cornerback - Desmond Trufant. I liked at least 3 corners better than him.

DT - Shariff Floyd- He's good but to be talked about as # 1 overall or even top 5..I am missing it if it's there.

WR - Tavon Austin- I see the possiblities with him but I don't think he should be the first receiver off the board for any team, espcially not us.

Under Rated
Safety - Shamarko Thomas- I get it he's short. He does not play that way to me and seems like the most sure tackler of any safety prospect I have seen. I think he'd be a great SS on our Defense. This guy would be great playing inside the box.

Cornerback - Jonathan Banks - This guy once upon a time was rated high not sure what happened. I liked everything I saw.

DT- John Jenkins is another guy I am super high on. I love him as a nose tackle. If people keep sleeping on Star then I'd have him as even more under rated but he seems to be rebounding from that heart test in some mocks/rankings.

WR- Terrance Williams. He's not my favorite receiver(that title goes to Keenan) but I like him more than the masses. A little raw but has terrific hands, good vertical threat and willing blocker.

If at all possible would be nice to let people post their opinions and let it be. Just want to hear some opposing views without having to read thru pissing matches of others bashing other's opinions and forcing them to go on the defensive and derailing the thread. Be fun to bump the thread down the road and laugh at each other but for now just wanna hear some other opinions.

Honestly I dont know what to think about this years prospects. There arent that many players worthy of a top 15 pick to be honest.

Not saying Jenkins is better, but based off where they are projected to go, I feel like Jenkins is being slighted and Floyd is being a little over hyped imo. I was not posting prospect rankings just the most over rated and under rated prospects in my eyes. Have not looked over every prospect but have the top 5-10 or so at each position I listed.

Overrated:

Tavon Austin, before the combine. The guy was at best a late third round pick. Once he ran that 40 time, he sky rocketed. He's been over hyped by the likes of McShay, Kiper, etc. He's a career slot receiver. Nothing more nothing less. Percy Harvin did not get this much hype and he went in the late first. I don't see why he should be the first guy taken. I good someone else takes him.


Underrated:
Keenan Allen and Justin Hunter.

Both are severely underrated, not only by the couch GM here but the national pundits too.

Overrated:

Floyd x1000. Quite possibly the most overrated prospect I've seen in a long time.
Patterson. Almost any other year he'd be looked at like a 2nd round prospect like he was early in draft season.

Underrated:

Hunter.
Rambo.
Hankins.

Austin was a late first early second before the combine.

To keep the homerism going Stedman Bailey is underrated.
