After countless hours of studying the players and coming up with the final ESPN 150 and ESPN 300, here are the 13 things we noticed about the Class of 2013.

1. Some guys drop as a result of others guys rising
It's the reality of rankings. If a player stays the same and other guys move, someone is getting shifted down. It isn't always a negative reflection of a player, just part of the process. This has occurred with players like S Su'a Cravens, DT Kenny Bigelow and TE-H Derrick Griffin. Injuries and playing time as a senior are also among the contributing factors as to why prospects might see a downward slide. At the end of the day, do some guys drop as a result of further evaluation throughout the process? Of course. However, often times it's just someone else moving up.
