UPDATE:  May 7, 2014
Final Mock Draft Updated... 11:55 P.M.
Now, it's time to enjoy the draft!
 
UPDATE:  May 7, 2014
6:00 p.m. -- **Steelers Draftboard Site Updated**
 
Top 100 (FINAL) is posted as of 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time!
Thank you to all that have had twitter banter and emails back and forth throughout the draft process about this most exciting 2014 draft class!
Breakdown of the TOP-100:
QB-(9); RB-(9); WR-(15); TE-(5); OL-(17) --- 55 total offensive prospects
DT-(7); DE-(10); LB-(9); CB-(13); S-(6) --- 45 total defensive prospects
 
... and that's how I would project the Top 100 to go, overall, with a greater lean towards the offense (55 to 45), but then, the 4th and 5th round will contain 76 overall selections, and when the talent is chunked into likely prospects for the 76 players (Go here for link to 4th/5th rd prospects) -- it's 49 defense to 27 offense.
 
 
 
 
 
UPDATE:  April 25, 2014
After having done the draft for a long time now, I can never remember wearing myself down or being as emotionally "spent" on the task as this year.  Is it the two additional weeks that has led to additional scrutiny of the athletes entering the 2014 draft class?  Or is it the pure phenom's that we have in these prospects this year?  And will the extra two weeks of time before the draft cause grand relaxation and enjoyment because preparations are done? ... Or will it cause more heartache and additional workload trying to make this thing perfect?  Does anyone have answers to these questions?  Do people begin to ask questions to the World Wide Web when they've reached utter exhaustion?  
 
 
UPDATE:  April 25, 2014
Offensive Value Chart is now posted...
There are 19 more offensive players in '14 than there was in '13.  I followed the same process I have every year for 15+ years now, and the formula is shaking out a lot more "NFL Worthy" candidates this year (182 offensive versus the 163 last year) -- It will take a few days until the Defensive Board is finalized; in the meantime updated Mock Draft and Top 100 will be published soon.
 
 
UPDATE:  April 6, 2014
So little time to comment throughout the month of March because there's been so much work to do on this very intriguing draft class. I've been working the draft for 18 years and have never seen such a talented group.  In every way, this is going to be the most exciting player selection we've witnessed.  
 
... Top 100 List updated on 4/6/14
... Mock Draft (round 1) updated as well on 4/6/14
... more blogging and commenting on the way...  as well as Offensive and Defensive
draftboards, which are nearing completion. 
 
UPDATE:  February 19, 2014
The first mock draft projection (Pre-Combine) has been loaded.  Not a lot of flash or drama with trades and such, but it matches up 32 very possible first round prospects with estimated team needs at this stage of the game (an on-going and changing factor)....
 
 
UPDATE:  February 18, 2014
Pre-Combine Top 100 List has been posted.  This is the deepest draft, overall, that I can personally ever attest to having covered.  Specifically, great depth at the positions of WR and CB make those positions very unique going into the NFL Combine.  This list of 100 includes 50 on offense and 50 on defense.
