The previous thread received some positive feedback, so I created a new thread for our grades since Clemson and UNC (also because some of my previous content had to get removed due to paywall issues). Please PM me with any specific questions and I’ll do my best to answer.
- Charlie Thomas is the #1 graded LB in the nation, out of 530. Also grades out as #1 in pass coverage. Quez Jackson comes in at #30. Quez doesn’t grade very high in any one particular area, but doesn’t have a weakness (pass overage coverage is his lowest score). No other team has two LBs in the top 30. Ayinde Eley currently sits at #420.
- Ignoring the minimum snap threshold, Dontae Smith is the #5 graded RB in the nation. But I do think his touches per snap ratio really boosts his grade. Also the fact that he’s a beast.
- Devin Cochran has the #4 pass blocking grade of all OTs in the country (out of 380). His mediocre run blocking grade puts him at #80 overall. Jordan Williams is #256 overall.
- Ryan Johnson grades as the #321 OG, out of 406. Kenny Cooper comes in at #278.
- Out of 190 Centers, Mikey Minihan grades in at #180 for pass blocking (#117 overall).
- Out of 483 Edge Defenders, Jordan Dominick grades at #48 overall (and #19 in Run Defense). Jared Ivey grades at #21 in Pass Rushing (#93 overall) and Kyle Kennard is #353 overall.
- Out of 551 Interior Defenders, Dijmon Brooks is #44 and Ja’Quon Griffin is #51. T.K. Chimedza is #221.
- Out of 657 graded WRs, Kyric McGowan is #120, Malachi Carter is #147, and Adonicas Sanders is #598.
- Out of 214 RBs, Jahmyr Gibbs is #49 and Jordan Mason is #72.
- Out of 539 CBs, Tobias Oliver is #187, Wesley Walker is #369, and Tre Swilling is #389. An interesting stat here is Walker is #20 in Run Defense for all CBs.
- Out of 443 Safeties, Juanyeh Thomas grades #17 in Run Defense (#219 overall). Tariq Carpenter is #328 overall.
