2017 NFL Draft Best Round One Value Picks Published 4/28/2017 in Pro Football Talk Line Author Steven Van Over NFL Draft

Draft value. A term that is subjective at best. Chased by GM's and obsessed over by owners and fans alike "draft value" is an organic measurement that starts from the moment a team makes a selection till the end of the players career. There are many reasons a player may drop on draft day. Of course teams evaluate players differently. However most often team need is the primary culprit when a player begins to slide down draft boards. A RB may be the best player available but if you already have a young all-pro toting the rock it makes no sense for you to draft another. Ergo in lieu of a trade down your team selects a different talent and a players drop begins. Ed Note: It's acknowledged you can't effectively grade a draft until 3-5 years after it occurs. The same is true with value. What draft value is not. Draft value is not grabbing a player that would have gone in the first round but is injured. That is risk/reward, not value. It may work out. It just as likely won't and like lost salary, lost snaps due to injury is value a team can never recoup. For an early return on... read more→

Inching closer and closer to what I like to call football Christmas I have finally got around to releasing my top 75 prospects for the 2017 NFL Draft. I form my opinions based solely on the tape that I have watched of these players, combine results, and off the field issues. I will say it now, I look very little into combine results. Yes they could bump a guy up a couple of spots but I usually do not move guys up/down a full round for either blowing up or having a disastrous combine. Here it is, my Top 75 Big Board for the 2017 NFL Draft. [supsystic-tables... read more→

2016 NFL Draft Top Tier Per Position v1.0 Published 4/8/2016 in Pro Football Talk Line Author Steven Van Over NFL Draft

The 2016 NFL Draft is a few short weeks away. Seven rounds of team building that leaves many a fan a wreck on their living room couch without their team even giving up a touchdown. Sure it's the offseason, but there's a lot to consider. How did your team do? Which players available this selection are the best? Which guys make up the 2016 NFL Draft top tier? Ahhh, you came to the right place. Every team has needs. They usually start at QB and end at punter. Regardless in order to figure out which guy gives your team the best upgrade you need to build your draft board. Ranking players as a whole based on projected draft order is pretty much impossible.
