We updated Nolan Nawrocki's highest-rated players list to reflect the players now who remain on the board for Friday's portion of the draft. And there are some first-round-ish kinds of guys still out there.
There's obviously Jimmy Clausen, who will tempt some teams (possibly via a trade) within the first eight picks of the second round or so.
Buyer beware on Sergio Kindle, a fine player but one who comes with character, intelligence and serious medical red flags.
There's Vlad Ducasse, the intriguing OLT prospect who carries some risk and is not a plug-and-play guy, but he also could make a quick exit from the board.
And fourth on the list is Indiana OT-OG Rodger Saffold, a great fit for a zone-blocking scheme and a player who many thought could sneak into the back end of Round One.
