    Check it out because it's a pretty good evaluation of the first round over the last 10 years and will provide plenty of discussion about their choices.
    As an example, I've entered the top 5 11th overall picks from the last 10 years.

    To be ranked ahead of Ben, Wade, and Willis is quite the compliment. And justified. Watt is on his way to becoming an all-time great.

    I think surprising. I would rank both Ben & Ware ahead of JJ.

    Obviously, there's some projecting going on. Ben and Wade have had fuller careers.

    I'm not sure what their criteria is for ranking some of their choices ? Looking at the 2 Texans' picks at 27th, how is Hopkins a better choice than Babin ? And make that 3 or 4 places higher than Babin. That's a whole lot of projecting, huh ?

    I like pro football focus alot and this is not about this rankings in general,but their eyes are untrained. A lot of the stuff they talk about in terms of wins and losses,none of those guys have played college or pro ball nor were scouts. I've listened to polian and other ex football guys talk about this. Especially on block assignments,routes and coverage. I remember the kc fans calling into sirius using these stats of why kc was better than denver peyton 1st yr. Dude kept using pro football focs ranking about ol,dl,etc. As many said its a tool,but not the bible. Now if it had ex ol,dl,scouts,gms giving grades,then it would be a lot more credible to me.
