I understand where you're coming from. I had the same issue grading Andrew Luck last year. I thought he was really similar to Peyton Manning except that he is a much better athlete. I even graded him higher than I graded Manning coming out of college. But then at the last moment I lowered his grade because of what Peyton has accomplished in the league. It seemed silly to say any college prospect could be better than Peyton Manning. But I really think Luck is that good.
In the same way, it seems silly to say that a college player is similar to a Super Bowl winning QB. But that's just who he reminds me of.
