Wait this is in order of how he likes them and the success they'll have? Or is it in actual draft worth.

I'd say it is how he thinks they rank ability wise, not how they'll go in the draft. Remember, back in the Couch draft, he went against everyone and ranked Couch about 36th overall. Now it appears even he was generous.

I saw J J Arington was not in the top 10 RB and stopped reading. I do not agree with much of what this guy says.

He has a very detailed rating system for each position and for a players athletic ability. I would recommend the book to anyone interested in the draft. Just don't make it (or anything else for that matter) your only source of draft information.

It all depends, Lefors was one of the top QBs last year but he wont have success in the NFL I don't know how this Lande guy works. Is he a college guy or an NFL guy?

Yup, nobody goes into more depth and explains how and why he arrived at his rankings than Russ does.

how do you know Lefors won't have success in the NFL for all you know every QB taken before him could fail and he could be the next Marino

Sorry nothing is for sure obviously the way I made it sound I said he will definately suck in the NFL I don't know that obviously. He just wouldn't be #2 on my board right now.

he wouldn't be no. 2 on mine either i was just playing a little devil's advocate there, i would really like to see this guys ratings system because i can't say that i like how he has most of his players listed
