Out there are guys like Patrick Peterson, Da'Quan Bowers and Ryan Mallett, guys who have the talent and the numbers to solidify their positions in the top 10 of the 2011 NFL Draft.

Then there are guys like Adrian Clayborn, Julio Jones and Jonathan Baldwin, who all show exceptional talent and abilities but have sunk in the draft due to conditioning concerns, bad hands or off-field problems.

Then there is the funny grey area that people try to deny exists.

When evaluating draft talent, ultimately a list forms of talent from top to bottom, and that tends to stay pretty solid. A player puts on a few very impressive performances early on in his career, and his stock tends to hang around its highest point, barring serious injury.

That can be fine for some, but for others it can become deceptive.

These are the guys whose draft stock is too high for their own good.

Then there are the guys that get passed over by scouts because they're on a bad team or face subpar competition, but who deserve a look nonetheless.

These guys, plus the "draft stock is too high group," make up a group of players whose draft stock doesn't quite tell the full story, and that can be dangerous.

With that in mind, let's do some demystifying and break down 10 players whose draft stock doesn't quite tell the full story.
