    • This ^^^^   If Ballard is going to make a high-impact move with our #26 pick to acquire an EDGE guy.... then let it be for Brian Burns in the 10-15 range if he's there and we can work something out.   But between his DV history, Seattle's 1st round demand and the contract he will want..... I'd avoid Frank Clark like the plague.  
    • It scares me seeing all those DT's ranked so high. I am really hoping for that position at either 26 or 34.  That was the missing piece during the Manning years. I don't want to go through that again.
    • I'm sure you're right....   that they use the same grading system.   But I wonder if they should be?   Let me see if I can elaborate....   On the NFL level...    it's the best vs. the best.   Grown man vs. grown man.    Every game carries equal weight.    I believe the scores a player gets vs Arizona are just as important as the grades they get vs. New England.    That's my understanding.   On the college level,  I believe it's the same.   The grades a Stanford player gets in a game vs. Notre Dame counts just the same as a game vs an opponent that might go 1-11.   All the same.   But should it be?    On the college level,  teams have a handful of top level games....  but they also play a number of cup cakes.   And the competition level is highly inferior.   So a good player on the college level can pad grades,  get great grades vs a highly inferior opponent.   I suspect that happens a lot.   Does PFF make any allowances for the difference in the quality of opponents?   If Player A plays in the SEC and Player B plays in a very weak conference (you choose) and they have the same grade at the end of the year --- should they?    Do they adjust for the difficulty of schedule?     I often wonder.     When I see players from smaller schools have high grades, I confess to wondering if that's an appropriate grade?   A lot of  what I've written is just Thinking Out Loud...    Perhaps someone will chime in with new information?     But they've got so many question marks for me on this list,  and do every year they'v made a college list,  that I'm left to scratch my head....          p.s. -- I think you alluded to an important point.     Grading a college player on PRODUCTION vs PROJECTION.      What you HAVE done vs. what you MIGHT do.     That's a very difficult aspect and I suspect is often the difference between a good choice and a bust....  
    • Ask yourself if Funchess had a market before CB & Staff came calling?  Labeled a bust due to an incompetent QB and/or system, value is in the toilet!  Said player is set to be eaten alive and has no leg to stand on.
    • If the Colts see Dillard as their future LT then I wouldn't mind this pick at all. Either way, we lack quality depth at the tackle spot. If Costanzo or Smith goes down, I don't feel very optimistic about the backups that we currently have.
