Treadwell should be in the top 10. Dude is going to be so good. Not a Coleman fan, though.

As it Bucs and Gators fan it hurts that Aguyao is rated higher than Hargreaves. It also makes me wonder what Hargreaves rating is, he's not top 10 so he's lower than a 77.

Since hurting his ankle he's likely to be more of an Anquan Boldin type than a Michael Irvin type. Also I like how Ronnie Staley is higher rated than Laremy Tunsil just because Tunsil dropped in the draft despite being the presumptive Top 5 pick before the bong video. That's good analysis of talent right there.

Ouch....i don't even want to know what Goff rating is.

Remember this guys, ovr's have been redone for all positions.

Do they still follow the same weights from the chart released last year?

If not, can/will another chart be released that gives the weight breakdowns, esp with having the ability to edit inside Franchise now.

To go back to total unknowns dealing with the OVR's would be the wrong direction.

No it's all brand new this year. We may release weights per position soon.

Except Ronnie Stanley was according to some scouts a better player than Tunsil.

Yeah, getting these new ratings without having the new framework that allows us to put them into context, is the frustrating part.
 
# 11 khaliib @ 07/20/16 04:27 PM
If "90" is established as "Elite" level, a guy never playing one down at the NFL level is 5/6 pts away from the same level as Revis, Sherman, Peterson etc... (guys w/90's MCV and ZCV)

Rook's will definetely be lowered here!!!
 
# 12 Yazan Gable @ 07/20/16 04:27 PM
He's still an 82 OVR and we don't know how easy or difficult it is to get those 5 points, so already itching to the gimp the guy seems a little rash.

Better since pass blocking is more important than run blocking for a left tackle. He is not as good a pass blocker but he's a better run blocker and a better physical specimen. They're both definitely better than Jack Conklin who gets to be the same OVR as Tunsil because of his position drafted.

If this were the case that TE and K wouldn't be on the top 10 list. Also Stanley was projected as a much better run blocker and sufficient pass blocker where Tunsil had some flaws in his run game.

As for Conklin he was compared to Jon Runyan, and know to be able to play any OL position at a high level

Ramsey is a bit of an anomaly, he has been highly regarded by everyone.

Stanley was projected to be a much better pass blocker and sufficent run blocker while Tunsil did not show a lot in the pass and run because of the scheme he played in but showed exceptional athleticism and good skills in both pass and run blocking (not as good a pass blocker as Stanley, but a better run blocker.)

This is just one guy's (with the help of some film and websites and other info) opinion. We aren't all going to agree with him. I'm fine with it.

I personally don't think any rookie should be rated over 80. I also think there will still be too many 90 overalls for me.

Just my opinion though.

I wouldn't want to be doing this job. Lol. I like being liked too much.

This year we have the fewest 90+ ovr players we've had in a LONG LONG time.

Not rash, just making "Elite" level mean something in regards to Franchise, as well as in the context of gameplay.

A big complaint had been "player differentiation" and with guys being rated so close to Elite level at any position and just coming into the league, does make one wonder how much differentiation there will be.

Thank God for being able to edit players, so at least it's fixable to the levels one would like.

Tunsil is a LG in the game, with his top of strictly OT, I'm not sure if he'll be that good at guard. You can show great athelticsm, but doesn't always translate to technique.

He's a LG, and his strengths don't really scream OG to me or anyone I've heard speak of him.

If Right Tackles are being weighted more based on RBK and left tackles based more on PBK then that's disappointing. At this point, there are as many, if not more, elite pass rushers from the right side of the Oline so pass blocking is more important than ever for a RT.
