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:

That’s why Jabaal Sheard had an elite rating last year (91.3) he doesn’t have a ton of sacks like the big names, but he’s great in applying pressure and setting the edge.

    • I'm from Huntington, practically neighbors. Good to know that we have Colts fans in the WV.
    • Oh you didn't? Silly you. Yeah that's a few hours north of us while London on the other hand is.....good try though
    • Bell plays the slot quite often.  Ooops.  never mind. 
    • oh i never knew the Toronto Raptors were inside the US 
    • Being totally selfish, I would love to see the Colts in London again. The Jags have invested a lot of money in training camps etc in the London area and their owner was recently trying to purchase Wembley from the English FA, this has now been scrapped which may diminish the chance of a franchise here happening. As has been mentioned previously, it is all about money and the London games sell out every year, but that is when people are getting the chance to see different teams play one off matches, I am not convinced that having a team play here regularly would attract the same kind of crowds week in week out especially if the team was struggling for form and on a losing streak. It does happen in UK at present with a team from Toronto playing in Rugby league and 2 teams from South Africa playing in the Rugby Union league. I did notice however the outcry why the Spanish La Liga tried to play a game in USA rather than Spain. So it can work both ways, when we were flying back from our recent trip there were a few Eagles fans on the flight who were combining a holiday with watching the game. I suppose the same as we did in reverse. The difference being we could not come back over year after year (no matter how much we would love to) and I think that is where the problem would lie. So would I like to happen - Yes, can I see it happening  - Not in the short term, I think they will continue with the current Status Quo for a while yet.
