Thanks to everybody that is voting for our 49ers community big board. We've got less than three weeks until the 2011 NFL Draft and here are players six through ten. I've posted the top five after the jump and will continue updating the list after the jump of each post:
6. A.J. Green, WR, Georgia (557 points)
7. Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn (503 points)
8. Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri (412 points)
9. Da'Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson (399 points)
10. Cameron Jordan, DE, California (371 points)
Naturally this next set of players was a lot closer than our first vote for the top five. What I found interesting was that Cameron Jordan gained a lot of ground late in the voting. He never climbed out of that tenth spot, but he picked up a fair amount of number six votes to get a sizable boost. Yesterday afternoon he led the next person by about 85 points and he finished up 158 points ahead of that person. If the 49ers were able to move down a bit I'd be perfectly content adding Cameron Jordan as a bookend to Justin Smith.
As for the new poll, I added in the names folks suggested in the first two polls. If you have a player you think belongs in the available voting options for the next poll, please mention that person in the comments. After the jump, I've posted a few pointers on the vote and the poll for spots 11-15. The primary thing to keep in mind is that you're making your selections based on how you think the 49ers should order their own big board. You can go best player available, need, value, character concerns, or any combination of those. Again, please just vote once. But do vote, because the more people that vote, the more accurate the representation will be of the community as a whole.
1. Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
2. Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M
3. Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama
4. Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
5. Robert Quinn, OLB, UNC
6. A.J. Green, WR, Georgia
7. Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn
8. Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri
9. Da'Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson
10. Cameron Jordan, DE, California
First off, remember that you can use the scroll bar on the right side to see the last few names. They're in alphabetical order by last name.
I realize I've probably left out players you might like, but given that we're looking at spots 6-10, I think I've included most, if not all, of the important names. I've pulled from Scouts Inc rankings for now and can only pull 25 at a time. We'll be doing this poll every day so we'll be adding five new players every day. If you have specific players you think should be added for the next poll, please mention them in the comments.
In the end, how you vote is up to you, but just remember that this is a 49ers big board. Not a mock draft and not a big board that can be applied to every team. Use your own philosophy, but just pretend this would be going to the 49ers when we're done.
