Puma Posted April 17, 2008 Share Posted April 17, 2008 Scott Wright at NFL Draft Countdown does this thing where he compares players in the draft to players already playing in the pros. I think it's pretty interesting so I thought I'd share. Link By the way, he offers the follwing statement about his comparisons: "The following are rough player comparisons for some of the top 2008 NFL Draft prospects. Obviously this is a very subjective matter and there are no guarantees that these guys will be as good, better or worse than the players I compare them too. In other words there is nothing too scientific about this at all, just something fun to read and think about."
