FOOCH'S NOTE: I had to make a second correction to the poll so if you've already voted (and even voted again to correct my first mistake), please vote ONE MORE TIME. Apologies for the mistakes.
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 11 through 15. I've posted the full list after the jump and will continue updating the list after the jump of each post:
Some folks were complaining about Watt not making the top ten, and he now finds himself in our rankings at the eleven spot. Cam Newton made a late surge from outside this group of five to climb into the 14th spot. Watt and Jones had the most top spot votes, but Cam Newton was next in terms of top votes. Newton's support here is interesting to watch. He doesn't have a huge contingent of fans, but the folks that do like him are pretty hard core about it. If he finds success in the NFL, I'm sure the supporters will make themselves heard.
As for the new poll, I added in some names folks suggested in the last post. 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 16-20. 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

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
11. J.J. Watt, Wisconsin, DE
12. Julio Jones, WR, Alabama

15. Aldon Smith, OLB, Missouri
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 16-20, 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.
