Last week I listed off my top-six rookies for 2017. The backlash on my ranking Leonard Fournette didn’t come as much of a surprise, but I was taken aback by was how personally some folks seemed to take it. I was even accused of being sensational in order to get clicks!
To be clear, my rankings are just that: mine. I am sharing them because people find it interesting, not because I am trying to convince you of anything. If you disagree, that is fine by me. If you agree, that’s great too. I’m just here to entertain and inform to the best of my abilities.
The other thing that struck me was the folks who said my rankings are making them doubt their own. If I could give just one piece of advice on rookie drafts, it would be to take the guy you like. It is your team and you have to live with it. I don’t have any information you don’t on these players. I just happen to have a bit of time to do some studying and a platform to share my findings. None of that makes me Nostradamus.
As with last week I will using my patent pending THANKSOBAMA prediction metric (read here for details). Double blind independent studies have shown it to be more accurate than Mel Kiper Jr.’s cousin’s dog.
