Surprised about raekwon McMillan. Man, I think I was wrong about him. I apologize and I own the fact I said the things I said such as he couldn't shed blocks and seems to play undersized to play linebacker in the nfl.
The rest is pretty common if you're an 0-4 team.

Hes played like 40 snaps. Give him time to prove you right.

I graded Omenihu higher than L.J. Collier, but it was close.

I couldn't believe Collier went in the 1st round and Omenihu in the 5th on draft day. That's just ridiculous.

Wish we could say the same about you :nah:


Don't see how Rowe isn't at the bottom of every list.
Gesicki woof
Kind of hard to put Rosen in the mix with only two starts.
It will be interesting to see the lists at the halfway point.

I once said if you read the scouting reports about McMillan or Baker you'd have to be more excited about Baker. The preseason had me thinking I was right about that but one of our astute posters warned me to be patient and that McMillan's work ethic and intelligence would make him the better pro. I'm starting to agree with him (cough digital cough).

Well, HAsn't Kwon been one of the best run defending LBs since about halfways through last season? I could have sworn he finished really strong last year and graded out really well.

The problem with Kwon is he is only a run defender, he struggles in the passing game.

Seeing Bradbury as the worse center...ouch.

Man you guys really need to be careful with the PFF numbers. It's a metric that people sell you so you can present it as your own opinion/knowledge, but in of itself, it's a very flawed.

They flat out don't know assignments when making their grades, which makes their OL grades particularly... curious.

It's always nice to see one of our LBs in the top spot for sure. Baker being bad on a bad team makes sense - I think he's more of a luxury ROLB play making guy than he is the pillar of a defense

I'm willing to give Baker some time to go from just attacking to having to run a entire defense.
