Eagles Forum _ Philadelphia Eagles or Football Related Discussion _ The depth of the draft

Posted by: nephillymike Mar 7 2018, 10:05 PM

NFL.com is one of the few sites that not only ranks the prospects, but they rate the prospects as to projected performance.

Here are the highest ratings for this years class and the number of prospects for each rating:

A. Pro Bowl to All Pro Expectations = 5
B.Starter with Potential Pro Bowl Exp = 5
C. Chance to Become a Good Starter = 22
D. Could Become an Early Starter = 54
Total starter quality prospects = 86. ( a little less than three rounds deep)

# by ratings category by position:

Pos......A...B...C...D...Total
QB......1....-...3....1.....5
RB......1....-...2....3.....6
WR.....-....1....-...10....11
TE......-.....-....-....6......6
OT......-.....-...1....4......5
OG.....1....-...2....1.......4
OC......-....-....1....2......3
DE......1...-.....1....4......6
DT.......-...2....3.....1.....6
OLB....1...1....1.....2.....5
ILB.....-....-.....1....-.......1
S.......-....-......3....4......7
CB.....-....1......3....10...14
EDGE.-....-.......1.....5.....6
P.........-...-.......-.....1.....1
TOT....5...5......22...54...86

Basically, the first three categories could be the 32 first rounders.

Looks like OG, OC, OLB, and S would be in play. OT and TE have plenty of 2nd round possibilities.

But who cares really. We just traded a 5th for a three time Pro Bowl DE with Super Bowl pedigree.

As Mark Zumoff would say, "turning garbage into gold " !
