Aggregated 2012 NFL draft big boards from around the web

For the below graph, I aggregated a sampling of big boards from around the web, including CBS, SB Nation’s Mocking the Draft, ESPN’s Mel Kiper, CBS’ Rob Rang, ESPN’s Todd McShay, and the National Football Post, and charted where each of them had the following prospects listed on their respective “big boards.”

I then assigned a value to each number, similarly to the way Major League Baseball determines their MVP’s.  I’ll explain: For each “big board,” I went down as far as the 64th player on each list (64 because that would cover the first 2 rounds of the NFL draft).  If a player received a #1 ranking, he received 64 points, a #2 would give him 63 points, a #3 would be 62 points, and so on down the line until a 64th ranking would give that player 1 point.

As more draft guys add their big boards, I’ll add then to the graph, and update the list every few weeks.  Once we have some more big boards added, I’ll start dropping the high an low scores for each player, to counter some of the utter ridiculousness of some of the rankings (see the National Football Post not including Trent Richardson or Morris Claiborne in its Top 32).

  34. You can think of your computer’s registry like the brain of your computer. As such, it shops info not only on every program that your computer has installed at any given time, it also tends to keep information from programs that you Beforehand removed. This can be a major problem for PC owners and is why it’s imperative for computer users to use a free registry cleaner.

    When you set up software on your computer, some important information are retailerd inside of your computer’s registry. However, when you get rid of or unset up software, sometimes those data remain inside of your registry. Maybe the software was improperly composed or your computer had a hard time uninstalling the software correctly. In either case, the end-result is that you have data in your registry that are no longer needed.
