An Old Grudge

An Old Grudge

National signing day makes me sick.  Every college football fan around the country brags about such and such player who was given this many stars and is going to be a sure thing All-American.  The truth of the matter is high school recruiting sites are almost always wrong.  The NFL Draft gives me a chance to prove it.  Here is a look back at some of the Scout.com ratings given to players for their position in their high school class whom were drafted this year:

Quarterbacks:

Andrew Luck #4

Robert Griffen III #12

Ryan Tannehill #58

Brock Oswieler #49

Kirk Cousins #Not Rated

Nick Foles #52

Russell Wilson #62

BJ Coleman #16

Ryan Linley #47

Chandler Harnish #Not Rated

Running Backs

Trent Richardson #2

Doug Martin #Not Rated

David Wilson #26

Isaisah Pead #64

LaMichael James #40

Adrien Robinson #25

Taylor Thompson #38

David Paulson #30

Drake Dunsmore #Not Rated (rated as RB)

Brad Smelly #194 (rated as WR)

So next time your alma matter locks up the #1 play in each position, give it a couple years before you brag.
