I understand the injured players falling and problem players but some of these guys had 2nd and 3rd round grades on them and fell. How can "the experts" put these guys in their top 100 and then they don't make the top 250 or so drafted? Talk about being wrong. I can see a player projected as a 5th or 6th rounder not being picked but a 2nd or 3rd rounder? That's some bad evaluating on their part.

Good point and something that really needs to be seriously considered.

The projections that we see on draft sites are not the work of NFL front offices; their value is limited.

Louchiez Purifoy at one time was considered not only a first round pick but the top CB in the Draft

Florida CB Marcus Roberson was signed by the Rams

Florida CB Loucheiz Purifoy was signed by the Colts.

That was more or less my reaction.

Now, I truly hope the guy is beyond bad.

It'll turn out that Purifoy was just a really bad influence and Roberson becomes an All-Pro without him around.


Really surprised Jeffcoat wasn't drafted and pissed that Seattle got him.

Not sure what the deal was with Jeffcoat not being drafted after coming off an outstanding season. I know there were some similar questions about how well his abilities would transfer to the next level, similar to Sam. I'm guessing there were also some medical red flags in there somewhere.
Some consistency issues with Jeffcoat as well, despite the stat line. He's a tweener, liability against the run. He certainly doesn't lack athleticism, his combine numbers were pretty good. I think he got labeled as an undersized, one-trick pony pass rusher.
