    I don't think either Jones or Hightower has made a pro-bowl, so not sure how they fit with your theory.



    Jamie Collins disagrees
    You are right, Jones and Hightower haven't made Pro Bowl or All-Pro, but they are certain to this year. Our guys probably won't.

      This one had us worst in the NFL. LOL and the player they said was our "best pick" is out of the league now.

      In this writeup it knocks Wolfe. Said Still and Worthy were better. WRONG

      Again critiquing Wolfe over Still and Worthy.

      Probably the most accurate of all.


      These grades make me laugh and further my belief in draft grades are stupid and pointless.

      Bottom line we got 5 starters in that draft. That is almost unheard of. The only legitimate gripe that you could have made at the time was drafting Brock when you just signed Manning. But right now Brock is on track to be the future QB.
      It is not fair to draw a general conclusion based on the isolated cases. You can make a powerful statement if you can show the data over the past 10 years for all 32 teams and grades from credible analysts. I know it is a lot to ask. I guess you can make a suggestion to some columnists for this research.
