Notes

As I look through the list, here is what stuck out to me. What stuck out to you?

  • Percy Harvin is the top receiver ahead of Sammy Watkins.
  • Ronald Darby is rated so low, Ross Cockrell is ahead of him.
  • Manny Lawson listed on the defensive line mucks up the depth chart a little bit. Madden has to fit square pegs in round holes.
  • Kraig Urbik will be better in your lineup than John Miller - digitally, at least.
  • Alex Kupper being rated ahead of Cyrus Kouandjio and Cyril Richardson is terribly strange.
  • The second tight end through the rotation in the first preseason game was Matthew Mulligan, who doesn't even make the list of players evaluated.
  • Aaron Williams is the only one I see that is really underrated. I would put him in the mid-80s.
