Official NFL Draft Thread 12/26/10 [NEW]

Drew's note to the 49ers: Thanks, thanks a lot Niners... for the awesome Christmas present this afternoon. No really, you probably sealed Mike Singletary's fate this afternoon. So, with sincerity, good job!

Now on to business...

Earlier in the year, I put together a positional ranking post. And although it has not changed much as far as top 5's are concerned, I am going to list my top 5's draft eligible players at each position. These are my personal views based on multiple factors. Not everyone will agree with these, so for the sake of being empathetic to all of our pain, and how this season was a disaster, let's keep things civil.

On to the board...
