Just noticed this from last night. Turay is a badass.
2nd round picks balling out. Kemoko!!!!
Really low grade for Kelly.
My first reaction as well. I guess injuries matter a lot.
I think there's no way Kelly doesn't have a great year. I believe in his rookie year he was a top 5 center, last year he was injured and everybody knew the team was trash, I can't imagine it's easy summoning the effort to face NFL defensive tackles knowing you're going to lose practically every game. He's going to be healthy, have a reason to fight and he'll have Nelson next to him.... He's gonna be a stud
Agreed. I believe our Oline will be, worst case, above average.
The rating is based on the previous years performance. He was bad last year, and his ratings showed that. I think he’ll be better this year if he stays healthy.
fairly fricken generous
I'm curious what went into that decision. They definitely weren't just averaging the score of the starting 5 for each team.
We may have gotten some points for a couple off impressive depth players in Mewhort and Smith who they mention. I'm guessing they also consider one of our major weaknesses purely from their ratings standpoint was Kelly, who they excused somewhat for injuries.
It'll be interesting to see where Slauson and Smith get reps in come training camp.
It sort of appeared to me that they took the end of last year's ratings and then adjusted for changes during free agency and the draft. Our movement was up 8 spots from 25.
And it does seem they rate based on the projected current starters/etc. So for us to have gone from Vujnovich and whomever to Nelson/Smith/Slauson... you'd be hard pressed to say we didn't make considerable upgrades across the line. And when you look at the Texans, they basically have the same starters plus poorly graded players 'cast offs' as they put it from last season, and a rookie 3rd rounder at RT. Yeah, it at least seems like some effort was put into the article.
Taking the average of all of them we actually move up two spots to #15.
Pretty generous, but we should be improving at 4/5 positions. Nelson at LG, Kelly back at C, Slauson/Mewhort/Smith at RG, and Howard at RT. I believe we were already better than the Texans, Seahawks, and Giants last year. Maybe more. I think it seems about right unless we get decimated with injuries again.
Pretty fair actually IMO, did you see how many teams have at least one horrible spot? Everyone but the Eagles really.
I can live with this
Braden Smith did not surrender a pressure in pass protection, and put up a run-blocking grade of 82.9. For the season, he has an overall grade of 87.2, which ranks seventh in the country among all guards.
Yo so take out slausons 45 and put his 87.2* and then tell me how the line looks
