Is it common to have 10 OTs with over an 80 draft grade. How many 2021 draft OTs had a pff grade over 80? I think half the names on this list aren’t really mentioned on other draft sites as first rounders. I’m not familiar with PFFs robustness in the college game, if one can see their metrics with the same rigor as their NFL grades
It's not a real draft grade, it's PFF's grade, so take it with a grain of salt.
I haven't seen Alt's name on any of the draft sites. I check the underclassmen who have declared and his name was not on that list. I don't know when the deadline to declare is this year. In past years it's been around 1/25.
A RAS score of 8 or better has historically signified a potentially great OT. Lots of All Pro OTs scored above 9.
It's another metric to use.
Not sure how much I value RAS. We’ll see if Strange and Thornton pan out. In general I care 500x more if a player can play football and has football skills compared to physical measurables. I care zero about combine figures except in a couple cases.
Example: Care more about a WR’s actual route running skills of short and medium routes, release at the line, catch%. Do not care what the 40-time is unless it’s too slow (>4.65). Do not care that a WR can run a 4.3, this is how we end up with Bethel Johnson using a 2nd rounder.
I've got Safety and P/K up pretty high in terms of things that need desperate improvement over WR. Or 3rd down back.
As almost always, Evan gets them right and in the right order.
I haven't seen Melton play, but I'll take a look.Possibly 5 CBs who are first round worthy. Team is still missing a true CB1. It ain’t Jon Jones. It ain’t Marcus (slot). It could be Jack but not right now (and he’s on thin ice). It might be fitting to see BB take another CB from Rutgers.

Interesting how high they have Dawand Jones graded, not that I disagree. The initial stuff I read about him
The Pats will be coaching him at the Shrine Game.
For the Pats I'd play him at the Slot position bc of his short area quickness but he also has great speed (4.35) and vision to line up outside the numbers or flanker.
I think they are trying to move away from the 3rd/passing back....having one makes the Offense's tendencies easier to read.
And yet, Patricia managed to screw these changes up via QB position so badly it was obvious to the D what was coming. Unreal.I agree. In fact, they've already completed the move. The Pats RBs now are adept at receiving and running. Stevenson led the Pats in receptions this year.
FB was another position like that. FB in = run 95% of the time.
