This isn't about how they performed last year, this is how they're expected to perform THIS year... and I believe it's based on what Lance has seen and heard that OTAs. So he's looking at something most of us haven't had access to.

Judging from Steph's reports, Brooks has been looking like one of (if not THE) the most improved player so far. And what you saw last year, where the Mike didn't have to worry about him getting to the second level, that might be a thing of the past. It certainly sounds like it from early reports.

And with Newton on the sideline and from some reports having weight issues, Newton may have taken a big step back because of that.

BUT... like any grade that projects, it's all just an opinion.
