Who is ‘Right’ on the Browns’ 2016 NFL Draft Grades?

I came across this ESPN story the other day, and I had not realized that the worldwide leader gave the Browns a shockingly low draft grade. Well, we gave them the best draft grade from 2016…one of the best grades in years. Let’s see who is right years from now…

Would someone like to set the odds on whether ESPN will apologize or fire anyone years from now for being so wrong? If they’re still in business…

TE Seth DeValve, Princeton

  • 6.0 receptions for 65.1 yards per game the past three seasons.
  • Played only 17 games the past three years due to two corrective foot surgeries.
  • Initially went to Princeton as a WR, converted to TE.

 

 

*CFM Full Scouting Report (link):  Seth DeValve — CFM Scouting Report

 — DeValve was a shocking 4th round pick in 2016. We had him listed as our top sleeper among TE prospects, but we didn’t see a 4th round play coming. He’s missed a ton of time at Princeton with foot issues/surgeries, and only scored 7 TDs in five seasons. How is it he defied all scouting logic, and had the Browns chase him in the 4th round? There’s a lot to unpack and delve into with proper scouting on DeValve.

Uninspiring Daniel Lasco Interviews…

This web article caught my eye for an odd reason: For those checking out Daniel Lasco for Dynasty Rookie Draft purposes, give this a quick read, and maybe play the 30-second video interview as well. There’s a little too much fait accompli by Lasco and others that he’s a special teamer…and not much excitement that he could be a legit running back. See if you take away the same…

OTA Update: Josh Ferguson, Indianapolis

We thought Josh Ferguson would be drafted because of his notable passing game skills out of the backfield, much less his solid performance at the NFL Combine. He went undrafted. Apparently, the Colts were laying out plans with Ferguson ahead of the draft, regardless of being picked or not. Here’s a quick story on Ferguson’s path to Indy and an OTA update…
