2003 Draft Preview

by Aaron Freeman

Welcome to my 2003 Draft Preview. Here is where I will have my evaluations of over 200 prospects for this year's upcoming draft. I don't claim to be an expert like some of the other draft-niks out there. But I think people like me are great complements to the so-called "experts" out there. Most of the "experts" say the same things about each player, but then guys like me come along and say something to stir the pot. You get a different perspective on players.

In its format, very little changed since my last draft preview. Players are ranked based off value, not when I think the player will be selected. I have evaluations for most of the top prospects and many lesser known prospects, but I do not evaluate everyone you will see at other sites. That's most likely because I did not get enough sufficient tape to evaluate the player. Most of the evaluations come off a single tape, which was the players' bowl game. Unfortunately, I do not have a whole lot of time to evaluate a large amount of tape per player. But I did get to watch more college football during the season than I have in the past, so not all the evaluations are based off a single game like last year.
