I wouldn't even look at the ranks of the Central Scouting lists. Even a semi-astute member on HFboards could do a better ranking than that. You are much better off to look at a list like Bob MacKenzie's draft list from 10 scouts if you want to get an idea of the estimated rankings... but even those will change a lot by year end.
The Central Scouting lists are just general lists that highlight pretty much all the top talent from North America and overseas and they are a "central scouting" service which collates all the top prospects. They are a sort of minimum "base intelligence" service which teams then build upon with their own scouts.
As far as the Central Scouting ranked order of all those prospects... they aren't even close to accurate. Just watch when the actual draft takes place... Bobby Mac's list will usually be the closest of all the top draft lists.
