    Lol… I’m in my 40’s; so I guess you are right.

    The concept was you can find guards throughout the draft, same with running backs, tight ends, defensive tackles, safeties, and linebackers.

    Teams will jump through hoops to find a shutdown corners, a Franchise QB’s, a Franchise Left tackles, or a Defensive line end rusher (OLB or DE) who can get to the QB.

    When I was growing up, it was all about elite Running backs. But in todays NFL, running backs aren’t priorities.

    But cornerstone positions are what teams are willing to trade multiple first round picks for, and they are coveted by other teams and fans alike.

    I'd put elite WR prospects into that "jump through hoops" category.

    Happy to report some official Stingley propaganda and not just having to say wait til he's back.

    That’s true, as an elite WR can make an average QB look stellar. Though teams can find serviceable WR throughout the draft, however none that generally transcend a team to elite from the WR as a top of the draft receiver.

    An elite QB too can make good WR’s look like pro bowlers, we see middle of the pack receivers put up monster numbers when a competent QB is distributing the football.

    A special on the field magic happens when you have an elite QB and an elite WR working together.

    Defensive player of the week for the AFC. Too bad I feel like Will Anderson got robbed.

    Interesting. It doesn't surprise me that Stingley is high on the ratings list. It does surprise me that Steven Nelson isn't much below him.

    On of the things that stands out to me is how closely teammates on that list tend to be, which suggests there is more than individual talent being measured. There are a couple of exceptions, like the Bears' corners at #1 & not again until #63, but for most of those, if you see a guy, you'll find a teammate within a handful of spots.

    Stingley almost had two more picks today.

    Dude is unbelievable.

    He is so good ball tracking it almost wants me to draft another corner early and make him your Center Field Ed Reed. That good over the top.
