I don’t really worry about the top 50, top 100, etc, rankings.  They’re fun to look at, but I think they get taken too seriously.  What they don’t show is the difference between a guy ranked #5 and a guy ranked #25, or a guy ranked #50 and a guy ranked at #150.  Obviously you want guys ranked as high as possible, but I don’t think prospects are just limited to those in the top 50/100 lists.
