    [​IMG]Sure most of you read Phil Steel's preseason magazine -- website here -- and what his publications lack in poetry or design style they make up for in information.

    In his magazine, he ranks the top draft eligible players at each position. That's obviously an inexact science, but it's interesting nonetheless. We all like rankings, right?

    You'll notice the Pac-12 certainly does better with offensive players, and Stanford appears to have a lot of elite guys, which most of you already knew.

    Here's his ranking (keep in mind, it's only draft eligible players, which is why there's no Robert Woods or Marquess Wilson in the receiver category).
