He is going off of game tape. Star Lotulelie took a year off of football because he lost passion for the game. Also watching game tape he can be dominate for one game or series of plays then take another game off and just punch the time clock. This inconsistent motor is not worthy of a top 15 pick. If people would read how he evaluates off actual play and not the underwear olympics, they would understand Lotulelie at 22.
In the article Brandt does not mention game tape. He says,
"Before we delve into my list of the 100 best prospects, remember that I graded these guys according to tried-and-true benchmarks."
I do not think "tried and true benchmarks" = game tape. These methods would surely includes game tape.
I know that when he talked about Star he said, "I'm just grading these players based on what I've seen."
But he also talks various players' work habits and work habits are not on game tape. He also quotes what coaches have said about a player.
