Ready Now or Higher Potential?


I think a lot of mock draftniks get lost in the evaluation of "Ready Now" players versus the not quite as polished but "higher potential" players. An excellent example is this year's tackle crop of Reilly Reiff/Jonathan Martin vs Mike Adams/Cordy Glenn. There is no doubt that if you were picked sides for one game held next month that Reiff and Martin are ahead of Adams and Glenn but if you are drafting for the end of the year and into the next decade, you might want to consider Adams or Glenn. Both Adams and Glenn are over 340 pounds and have the dimensions, quickness and agility to move past Reiff and Martin but the end of the first season.

To play Devils Advocate, a large portion of the "Ready Now" evaluation comes from a longer body of work from which to judge the talent. There are always "Higher Potentials" talents (or lack thereof) such as Aaron Maybin to ground teams back to the "Ready Now" Category.I personally think Cordy Glenn has shown enough upside as the year progressed to demonstrate some "Ready Now" characteristics along with "Higher Potential".
