Stacking the Board
The Offensive Draft Value Chart
Offensive Value-Board Ratings:
* Final Rankings *
04/25/17
*** This is the projected order (stacked-board style) for which the players will come off the board during the draft. Rounds 1 & 2 are each whittled into sectors "1A, 1B, etc."  In this case, "1A," for example, stands for picks in the first one-third of Rd.1, and something like "2C" would equate to the last one-third of Rd. 2.  Likewise, in Rd's 3-7 all players are stacked vertically by way of their grade / expected order drafted in that round.***

161 Offensive Players are ranked here for the 2017 Draft:
On average, this site has slotted 170-175 offensive players by the time the draft rolls around, so this year's list is just a bit shorter.  There is more talent on the defensive side of the ball, in an overall sense, than on the offensive side.  Smaller "grade-able" numbers are present this year at OT/OG/C/QB than on average, while the skill positions are fairly loaded.
 
They're all ranked in a formula based off of collegiate success coupled with where they will be expected to go "off the board." Based on past success, this chart will be quite handy on draft day to follow the process round by round.  The strongest offensive positions:  TE, RB, and to a slightly lesser extent WR.  Both TE and RB get an A++ for being very talented at the top along with a lot of depth overall.  Wide receiver is a deep group, but it isn't necessarily above-average versus typical draft classes. (WR = "B" grade)  Offensive line is rather weak overall (though, interior OL is better than OT this year).  OT = a "D- grade."  Interior OL = "B-".  The quarterback position is once again not good.  The collegiate QB's are not ready for NFL football -- it's now a firm trend.  The NFL has a major (eventual) problem/crisis at the QB position, because they just aren't getting a good product from the college game.  But as in life, things run in cycles, and that will eventual cycle-about!
