  • How long to wait before judging a draft class?

    I would say 3 years. It gives players time to adjust to the NFL game and prove they can stay on the field.

      I agree 3 years is the normal wait time. some players such as OBJ come into the league already hyped and are expected to contribute mightily as soon as they hit the field.

        Ditto.

        I'd add in, different positions have different learning curve times.
        RB's mature quicker than Lbers for example.

          Absolutely. In general WRs and RBs have an easier transition And these days OL can take the longest.

              Its a problem throughout the league. The differences in college offenses plus the changes to practice time in the CBA make it much harder for OL to transition. It's just a fact of life and part of the reason for the quick pass offenses you see today.

                    3 years, but 2 years will show you a good direction.

                      I'd say 3 years is about the norm.

                        Yea. Conventional wisdom says 3 years. Generally whoever an NFL player is after their first 3 years is who they will be for the following 3-4.
