When The Scouts Get It Wrong


I'm bored as frick, so I thought I'd look at the current NFL draft predictions and top ten prospects at each position and compare them to how these players were rated/ranked coming out of high school. This is a list of "the ones they missed".

I am using DraftCountdown.com and Rivals to compile this list.

In parenthesis is their position ranking for the draft, followed by their star ranking and overall position ranking coming out of high school.

Note: This does not include the underclassmen who have recently declared.

QB:
Ryan Nassib (#6) - 2* Unranked
Zac Dysert (#8) - 3* #22 QB
Brad Sorensen (#9) - 2* Unranked
Collin Klein (#10) - 3* #21 QB

RB:
Kenjon Barner (#4) - 3* #33 RB

WR:
Terrance Williams (#1) - 2* Unranked
Aaron Dobson (#3) - 2* Unranked (Was the 4th best prospect in WV though )
Cobi Hamilton (#4) - 3* #63 WR
Marcus Davis (#6) - 3* #38 ATH
Aaron Mellette (#7) - No Profile
Tyrone Goard (#8) - 0* Unranked
Quinton Patton (#9) - 3* JUCO Unranked
Markus Wheaton (#10) - 3* #41 ATH

TE:
Travis Kelce (#2) - 2* Unranked ATH
Ryan Otten (#3) - 2* Unranked OLB
Chris Gragg (#6) - 2* Unranked WR
Zach Sudfeld (#7) - 2* Unranked
Vance McDonald (#10) - No Profile

OT:
Eric Fisher (#1) - 2* Unranked
Dallas Thomas (#2) - 3* #54 OT
Ricky Wagner (#5) - No Profile
Lane Johnson (#6) - 0* Unranked QB (Gained 108lbs from 202 to 310)
Brian Winters (#7) - 2* Unranked
John Wetzel (#10) - 2* Unranked

OG:
Chance Warmack (#1) - 3* #20 OG
Jonathan Cooper (#2) - 3* #21 OG
Larry Warford (#3) - 3* #30 OG
Travis Bond (#4) - 3* #46 OT
Hugh Thornton (#5) - 3* #34 OT
Braden Hansen (#7) - 2* Unranked OT
Blaize Foltz (#8) - 2* Unranked OG (Who the frick names their kid Blaize?)
Earl Watford (#9) - No Profile
Chris McDonald (#10) - 3* Unranked OG

I'll do more positions later. I'm finally falling asleep. Enjoy.

Totally normal to compile a list of 17, 18 year old boys when you're bored.

Kind of misleading since the rankings you used are only of the top SENIOR prospects at each position. Factor in the underclassmen entering the draft, and the story changes just a bit.

There is no way they can know which guys will have access and take the good roids.

This. The guys that come out early are the ones that were highly rated recruits. They've had $$$ in their eyes since they were 16.
