The grading for each individual is going to vary, and sometimes the difference is striking. I highly respect Phoenix on this board, but completely disagree with his analysis on Dennard. The same will go for many of the professional pundits who either played or didn't play in the NFL, but get the cash to make their boards.
I just have a personal philosophy and matrix I use for grading, and I am sure others have their way of analyzing and grading each player's prospects at the next level. For instance, I am firm believer in the combination of 40 times, 3 cone and short shuttle. If a guy can't crack a forty in 4.55, then, for me, that sends out a red flag. The same goes for the drills. If I see a guy posting a 4.30+ shuttle and 7.00+ cone time, major flags are waving. Can't find a big time NFL CB with numbers at Dennard's level: 4.41 and 7.07. Hence, my skepticism in his ability run well with guys once off the LOS.
