Consensus Big Board for 2-6-2010

So, for those of you who don't know me from other boards.. my name is Casper and I'm a a huge draft nut.

I regularly update various files on my computer that have breakdowns, rankings, quality opponent production, and mocks for draft prospects.  I started following college basketball closely as a hobby in 2005-06 (once it seemed the Wolves were on a downturn), and it's grown into something very similar to an addiction that supplements my love of the NBA - to the point where I find myself discussing the draft far more than the Timberwolves play on the court.

Now that I'm done introducing myself, let's get to the meat of the reason for making my first FanPost - this week's consensus big board.

What do I mean "Consensus Big Board"?  I go through and I look at the most prominent sites that have big boards (ESPN, DX, NBADraft.net, nba-draft.com) in addition to mock drafts.  Then, after putting down the the players rankings from those sites I add my own in as well - since why leave out the best big board?  The rankings you see on the left are where they end up after averaging the placements.

The reason for listing boards instead of mocks?  I far rather look at boards this time of year, because not only do mocks mean far less (more just to see how things could fall), but they tend to exclude guys who may or may not be coming out so you don't get a true sense on what "experts" feel about certain prospects.

Anyway, I think you get the gist of it.  I list the players names in order of the consensus ranking, and then after it put the rankings of DX, NBADraft.net, nba-draft.com, ESPN, and my own followed by a link to their ESPN player profile or the DX profile if they are an international player.

So here's the updated average rankings of players on their big boards (DX, NBADraft.net, nba-draft.com, Chad Ford, and yours truly - respectively):

That does it for this one.  Hope you enjoy it and if you have comments, criticism, questions, want my reasoning behind listing a certain player where ("You have Patterson at 19 while the "experts" have him as top-10? Moron!")... feel free to post anything - I have thick skin and can take the bad with the good.
