Well I don't know that he's not high on them. In fact everything I know says they love Ladd. It could be a million factors.

For example as SOTI or Park will tell you, reporting rumors can suck sometimes. People change their minds, things come up and sometimes {to be frank} you're left looking like a jackass.

It also comes down to a last minute thing and smoke screens and sometimes {like that old game telephone} information is lost along the way. They might want Stafford at six or they may want to nab him at 10, no one really knows for certain.

In the end rumors are just that. We mention em when we can, we update as we can and sometimes they change.

Someone could have fallen from their top 5 and someone they ranked sixth moved into the top ten. There's no real right or wrong answer, just a lot of talk.
