On it, you will find three members of the New York Giants, including a captain, a youngster and a very dangerous offensive weapon." Read more...

        JPP didn't exactly light it up in 2013 either.
        Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

          You mean 2012? This is a prediction, not an after-the-fact ranking

            We can write up the entire team the same way - "didn't play as well as expected".

              Maybe Weatherford did

                I still have no idea why the Jets released weatherford... he's an awesome punter and an awesome guy too...

                I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                      He and Westoff didn't get along. Still don't. His end came when he ad-libbed a fake punt and didn't succeed.

                        It is an after-the-fact ranking, though. It's a writer's opinion on the best players in the league as of right now. 2012 obviously contributes to that.

                          I can only read what the writer wrote:

                          "This list isn't one that grades the players just on how they played last year, or their popularity, but on where they rank heading into 2013," Prisco writes. Kind of like contract negotiations that take into account what has happened and what is likely to happen. A happy combination of the known and unknown.

                            Yeah, I meant 2012.

                              That quote right there backs up what I said.
