Footnote - just think he we had a healthy Anzalone & Trey Hendrickson throughout the season?

IMO, Ireland absolutely nailed this last draft class.

I hate these grades. Kamara ranks 2nd overall and Hunt 3rd. Kamara has more offensive yards and TDs. How do these grades even work.

Marcus Williams makes the top 10 while Jamal Adams is an honorable mention. If you told me that at the beginning of the season, i’d of thought you were crazy.

It's done by a special, double-secret committee - the same one that selected Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic nominee...

Re: PFF final rookie rankings (TOP 10)

As much as i have eaten crow over

Tre’Davious White, CB, Buffalo Bills

I will point out the vast difference in QB play in the AFC East and the NFC South. Then the rest of the QB they faced.

Kareem Hunt, RB, Kansas City Chiefs

Disappeared mid season. Alvin did not get his shot till SP woke up in week 4 against the Dolphins and has not looked back. So based on runs of 15 yards or more is pretty lamb way of coping out

Both Marcus Williams and Jamal Adams did well. Williams just got lost in the pre draft hype

PPF is a great way to gather data but it stops at just data and the never goes any further.

In depth thinking is not their strong suit at PPF

Ireland does not get all the credit. Coaches have a hand in selecting and pushing for players also.

Hunt fell off a cliff then climbed back up some the last few games. I likely won't even retain him next year as a keeper. Dude got stuffed for like 7 weeks. His numbers are very deceptive. Kamara was a steady machine once Peterson checked out.

Iíve said before... the Bills play a zone heavy scheme and I donít think White travels with top WRís like Lattimore.
