PFF Explains how they Grade OL and DL....

Recommended Posts

 

A free,  non-premium article.    Designed to explain to everyone,  but especially the doubters how PFF grades both offensive and defensive lineman.

 

And interesting read.     A little longer than most of the stories I link for you.     But if you're interested in this type of thing, it's worth your time.

 

Plus,  it's the off-season,  so you might find yourself with a little extra free time!

 

Enjoy!!     :thmup:

Great read. Regarding O.lineman - Assignments are a good way to evaluate a player. One can almost tell by the human eye when a player misses an assignment. Gap Control is gigantic and a great way to measure a player IMO. I am hoping Nelson turns out to be a beast, I think he will.

Thanks @NewColtsFan, a very interesting read.

 

Still scares the life out of me that Aaron Donald had a 99.7 rating last year! :woah: Some player.

 

And that was after skipping training camp! It looks like he will be skipping again this year.

At some point that will take its toll though, he might even drop to a 99.5 this year! :headspin:

    • One, there is no such thing as a white lie.  Either it's a lie or it's a truth.  But anyway.   it very well could be the team is being creative with their wording to try and protect themselves, or it could be completely truthful.  I've seen it in my own non contact practices... someone runs to get in position, pulls up right then someone trips or cuts or jukes right then and the person that pulls up gets caught in it gets knocked to the ground and slams their head off the turf.
    • I’m not saying the eagles are a monster but they’ve been built through the draft and bringing in young talent. That “monster” I speak of is what we are doing bring in competitive competition to build and feed of each other like the eagles did .... the eagles weren’t the best team in the play offs nor in the SB .... plus they didn’t have their starting QB but because of what they had built and brought in they were a monster and thus my reference ..... wether they win 1-2 more doesn’t matter IMO .... they’ve built there team right and made the right calls/players like I believe CB, and our staff can, is and will do.
    • Well if he is worried about his health, he is bashing a Belichick 3rd rounder
    • Offense:  Me (center) Defense: My son (OLB)   I don't think we'd help the team at all but it would be so cool to play for the Colts and be the only father/son tandem in the NFL.
