    I'm surprised to see Smith so low and Ware so high.

    Wow to Hayden and Tyron Smith's grade. Both very underrated.

    Are these the grades from week 1. Some of those numbers are pure BS. Love Ware no way he is 4th. Smith rated lower than free

    Good stuff

    Like seeing Hatcher at that spot.
    Strange seeing Free up that high
    I expect Claiborne to make some serious ground in that list

    Smith is #22? I expect he's going to the pro bowl this year

    I don't think Smith's grade is bad... Considering there are 75 tackles that have been graded thus far. He's in the top 1/3.

    Last year Smith was ranked 40th.

    Again, Smith is in the upper 1/3 of the entire NFL. I don't think that's shotty.

    I'd worry about Smith if he was out of the top 30.

    Ah, forgot to realize that. Still, I think Hayden is a solid player.

    I also thought Haydon was playing better than that.

    Don't know how those rating are compiled, but:
    • There's no way Free is that good
    • Ware has not been that good this season
    • There's no way there are 56 db's better than Scandrick
    • There's no way there are 94 db's better than Claiborne (though the last two games he's been much better than the previous games).
    • Seems a little high for Selvie
    • There's no way Hatcher is the best DT in the game.
    • Everyone on our line is above average (well, I guess Leary is average). When is the last time we could say none of our starting OL is below avg?

    I'm thrilled with his play, but he's not even the best OT on our team.

    I never expected Claiborne's number to be so low. If we got even mediocre performance from Claiborne, we could very well be sitting at 6-1.

    It will be interesting to see where DT Drake Nevis appears?

    He has absolutely played better than Smith. Smith has had 2-3 instances where he didn't provide help on the inside guy, it just got cleaned up most of those times.

    He is not -- but the way PFF grades, he comes out that way b/c they don't factor in things like how often the player gets help on a block - Tyron is our best OL -- he's on an island on almost every play. If he got as much help as Free, he'd never give up a pressure.
