You can make your assessments based on facts. But putting letter grades on things is sort of juvenile, no? It is done because readers like affirmation or anger about grades, and editors give readers what they want.
I don't get your point on this.

No predictions mean anything. Record predictions...Stat predictions...game by game predictions...

Of course they have to play the games. Who thinks that they can make predictions and the games don't have to be played?

JMO, but complaining about draft grades is kinda of silly. It's just a projection. Does it really need to be said that a draft grade isn't the be all end all and doesn't write a players legacy in stone?

Draft grades and predictions are made because people like to talk and discuss football. Do people get mad or like to be affirmed in their thinking? Sure. But that can be said about any area of life.
