Summer Schedule 2014

Sunday, June 29, 2014

I think media evaluators can do a large disservice to readers, and possibly even prospects, when posting massive lists that project draft slots prior to the season. Does this apply to everyone? Not at all. But it is worth pointing out that many of these opinions are based on watching prospects from afar when evaluating last year’s class rather than spotlighting specific players.

To be fair, the NFL does this too. In fact, scouting services used by teams (with representatives from teams) do spotlight the rising seniors and are still notoriously off by draft time. It happens. That is the evaluation game.

The goal of this is to share my opinion on some of the top prospects after spotlighting them. I want these preseason looks to be my own opinion, and I will strive not fall into groupthink. Feel free to follow along with me as I focus one position a week leading up to College Football’s kickoff.

Note that non-seniors (juniors and redshirt sophomores) are included.
