2009 NFL Draft: Top 50 Player Rankings

by: AnthonyP On  Monday, August 20, 2012

Michael CrabtreeTotal Pro Sports – Value is the supreme priority, by and large, as teams deliberate their selections on draft day. Often a pressing need is overlooked temporarily if the player, representing the right value, slides to a team that is willing to pull the trigger.

Sometimes needs are so pressing that teams may be compelled to pass on the “best player available” to address a glaring weakness at another position. That has always been a big mistake, in my opinion, as history shows time and again how players often come back to haunt the teams that passed them up. If the best available talent was selected in order this year, and need was not an issue, this is how I believe they should fall.

These players represent my top fifty prospects in the 2009 NFL Draft as it stands, before the scouting combine.
