Good point. I'll take that into consideration.
FYI I'm not making a blanket statement about Juniors, but just made a 15% adjustment on the Active stats measure to compensate for what I expect to be lower numbers in earlier years which I think is especially applicable if there is an upwards trajectory.
Baldwin - still early
Bey - still early, but waaaay overrated on measurables and would've ranked low on very low production numbers Fresh thru Junior
Thomas - injury concerns - It was later revealed in the New York Daily News that same day he retired at such a young age to avoid lifelong injuries such as brain damage. He also said he would prefer to settle down with his fiancée Porshia and their son Devin Jr
Kelly - injury
Hardy - injury/chronic hamstring
Dwayne Jarrett - bust... too slow? maybe one of those that the production bias does not work on?
Chad Jackson - Belichick/Pats traded up to get him (from 52 to 36).. injury problem... average to decent production for Junior (900yds), but would be low on list..
Troy Williamson - way overrated on measurables like DHB... 400yds Fresh, 400yds Soph, 800yds Junior.. average production and would be very low on list
Reggie Williams - started a few years, had some injuries and some off field issues. Did break Jimmy Smith's single season TD record with 10 in '07. Generally a disappointment.
Charles Rogers - great stats & measurables.. would have been on list regardless of positive adjustment. bad work ethic. per wiki: "After his release, Rogers worked out for the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2006. However, all of them opted not to sign him due to 40-yard dash times of around 4.8 seconds; at his peak, he consistently recorded times of 4.4 seconds"
