NFL Draft Player Comparisons


Recommended Posts

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.




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."
