Iowa Hawkeyes: 2011 NFL Draft Evaluations at Midseason

So a little context to these numbers:
1) These are what I call "snap shot" evaluations. As of October 2010 this is the draft value I've got for these prospects. These are very fluid and can shift up or down greatly as the 2010 season goes on. This is especially true of underclass-man as there has been less film to evaluate.
2) The Draft Rating column is out of 100 and I use a fairly complex formula consisting of raw physical tools, position skills, scheme versatility, intelligence, intangibles, and durability. Scouts Inc(ESPN's scouting division) uses a similar formula, though historically they've placed more value on raw physical attributes than my system does. Grades below 50 usually indicate a player with some value as a possible FA but not worth spending a draft pick on.
