Default Re: A Metrics Study Of Undervalued/Overrated Draft Prospects

For Kenny Stills, they think he's overrated as a third rounder.
Normally, I would agree; however, there are seasons as to why his YAC isn't all that.

That offense, between the QB and line play, couldn't afford a vertical game.
They had to throw short often, and the defense knows it.
They can play it tighter, daring the QB to go deep.
When the D play tight, YAC is harder to get.

A part of Stills' game (the deep routes) couldn't be exploited; some of his values were not realized.

Overall, Stills has that untapped ceiling, so to me, a third round grade is more in line. I'm not sure he even lasts to our spot.
