ok, I have the paperback version so I cannot "cut-paste" so I am just going to give you a snippet:

Grade Scale:

9.0 - once/generation player (e.g. Bo Jackson, Deion Sanders)

8.00-8.99 pereninial all-pro (e.g. Anthony Munoz)

7.00-7.99 Eventual all-pro

6.50-6.99 Sure Fire first-rounder should make immediate impact

6.00-6.49 Likely first-rounder capable of starting readily

5.60-5.99 Likely second-rounder with immediate starter potential

5.40-5.59 Likely third-rounder with sub-starter potential

5.21-5.39 Should make a roster and contribute on special teams

Best Player Available By Grade (Nolan Nawrocki):

  1. DT Leondard Williams 7.20
  2. OLB Dante Fowler 7.15
  3. QB Jameis Winston 6.80
  4. WR Kevin White 6.75
  5. QB Marcus Mariota 6.70
  6. WR Amari Cooper 6.65
  7. RB Todd Gurley 6.60
  8. DE Randy Gregory 6.60
  9. OT Brandon Scherff 6.52
  10. OT Andrus Peat 6.45
  11. CB Trae Wayne 6.37
  12. OLB Vic Beasley 6.34

I think if either player makes it past the Raiders the FO will pull the trigger

assuming they can find a trade partner that does not want to make Falcons pillow-bite - I agree.

Forget all of that. I want to know who has a fake smile and thinks he's better than everyone else.

cam newton - and he is fake.

I have a feeling that Fowler was and is our prime target and always has been. We're trading up to get him.

I see that as a very real possibility. I could see either the Raiders @ #4 or Redskins @ #5 as teams that would be willing to move back to Falcons position at #8.

I think the cost for a move-up of that magnitude would likely be a 3rd this year(#72) a 7th rounder this year and then maybe a 4th rounder in 2016.

I honestly don't understand how people can watch the film of Mariota and Winston and walk away thinking that the latter player is better. Winston made more bad throws in a half than Mariota did all season.

Mariota was a better college player. Winston is the better pro prospect. We will see which one is the best pro player

I don't agree in any way, shape, or form. Even ignoring the off-field issues that matter today more than ever and are a dealbreaker on their own for Winston, the two players are the same height and only a few pounds apart in weight yet Mariota is faster (by almost half a second per 40 yards), more explosive, a harder worker (in practice *and* the classroom), and more accurate with the football.

This whole thing is so surreal that it feels like an elaborate prank. I'm -thrilled- that Tampa Bay is apparently going to miss the forest for the trees.

I think that this guy is right on. Gurley's score would be half a point higher, if he had a cleaner health history.

Mariota worked in a spread offense. His "accuracy" is a function of how open is receivers were. Hey, I don't trust Winston's off-field stuff, but he was forced to throw into very tight windows. He had to make NFL-like plays every day. There is a reason that nearly every ranking has Winston ahead of Mariota.

When he wrote for PFW, injury history was a part of his grading system. He had a symbol to denote players with particularly problematic medical flags.
