Also, hasn't Kiper said in the past that it takes 3 years before a draft could be rated? Then he gives ratings right after the draft and a year later? His own evaluation was off on Miami, as he thought it was a B- right after, but now it's a D-. Sounds like he missed as badly as the Dolphins did (though really it's too early to tell).

The draft guys have to produce content in order to keep jobs. Most of the draft talk is pretty empty at the end of the day. As you stated, most people understand that it is at least two if not three years before anyone really knows what a draft has really meant to an organization. Grades are something for readers to react to versus anything that have true value.

Also, does anyone think that NFL teams take any little piece of information (good or bad) on a single player and run to this largely mythical draft board and move a player up and down?

And mock drafts, are again just content drivers. These draftniks know that they (even with league contacts) are largely guessing and will be more likely than not wrong as spit. The only reason for me to read those is to learn prospects for the Texans and fantasy football.

I'm assuming we're moving away from the ZBS this year. If that's the case, given how he was treated like a rag doll by the Jets several years ago, would Myers still be considered a "High Quality Starter" for us?

I wouldn't be so sure we're moving away from the ZBS, O'Brien's first choice for OL coach has a strong background in ZBS, OB's second choice was his first choice's son.

Like TKyss said, don't make that assumption. Although the offense will be different, it will still use a variation of the zone blocking system. It just won't be as pure as the Gibbs variation; otoh, Kubiak's wasn't as pure as the Gibbs variation, either.

Chris has also been working out since then.

That play, and even that season, is not indicative of how reliable and skilled Myers is. We're still good at that position.
