Default PFF Spotlight on 1st rounders so far.

Here.

Quote:
1. Eric Fisher, T, Kansas City Chiefs
Grade: -6.7
Snaps: 219
Analysis: Look away now Chiefs fans because hopes of your young tackle taking the league by storm are fading fast. Itís been a tough adjustment to the right side of the line and to the NFL with Fisher being our fifth lowest ranked tackle on the year. Heís graded equally poorly against the run as in pass protection and been flagged for three penalties.

2. Luke Joeckel, T, Jacksonville Jaguars
Grade: -1.9
Snaps: 212
Analysis: By comparison the Jaguars have to be laughing. Joeckel has had some rough moments with his run blocking but is doing a better job of slowing pass rushers down, with a marginally better Pass Blocking Efficiency score than Fisher. Still thereís plenty of room for improvement as well.

3. Dion Jordan, DE, Miami Dolphins
Grade: +2.6
Snaps: 57
Analysis: Got his biggest workout to date against the Falcons and responded with his best showing. His lack of playing time and role as a situational rusher may prevent him pushing on, but itís worth noting his 15.2 Pass Rushing Productivity score is tied for the highest among 4-3 defensive ends.

4. Lane Johnson, T, Philadelphia Eagles
Grade: -5.2
Snaps: 213
Analysis: It didnít start off too bad for Johnson but he had a rough day out against the Chargers and then a horror show versus the Chiefs. Justin Houston really taught him a harsh lesson and itís left the Eagle as our seventh lowest ranked right tackle.

5. Ezekiel Ansah, DE, Detroit Lions
Grade: +2.6
Snaps: 130
Analysis: Our 15th ranked 4-3 defensive end, Ansah got his first start against the Redskins even if he wasnít quite as good as his excellent outing versus the Cardinals. Heís evidently not as raw as some said he would be, with a solid 10 quarterback disruptions on the year already.

6. Barkevious Mingo, OLB, Cleveland Browns
Grade: +0.4
Snaps: 79
Analysis: After missing the opener Mingo has has been eased into things as a situational player while Jabaal Sheard and Paul Kruger draw the majority of snaps. Two sacks and three hurries on 41 pass rushes isnít a bad return at this stage but youíd like to see a little more of him on the field.

7. Jonathan Cooper, G, Arizona Cardinals
Grade: N/A
Snaps: N/A
Analysis: Out for the year on injured reserve after breaking his leg in the preseason.

8. Tavon Austin, WR, St Louis Rams
Grade: -1.1
Snaps: 154
Analysis: Not the dynamic start that Rams fans had been hoping for. At the moment his 1.05 Yards Per Route Run are only good enough for 70th out of 88 receivers and heís dropped three passes. These things do take time.

9. Dee Milliner, CB, New York Jets
Grade: -2.0
Snaps: 128
Analysis: Started the year as an every down player but wasnít ready and earned a second half benching in Week 2. Returned to play 23 snaps in Week 3 where he looked better but itís been a far from impressive start from man charged with replacing Darrelle Revis.

10. Chance Warmack, G, Tennessee Titans
Grade: -1.5
Snaps: 210
Analysis: Thought J.J. Watt was just another guy even after heíd been beaten for two sacks and three hurries versus the Texans. Warmackís positive grade for the year is largely due to his run blocking. However, his pass protection woes against Houston have left him nursing an overall negative grade.

11. D.J. Fluker, T, San Diego Chargers
Grade: -1.4
Snaps: 139
Analysis: Given how the rookie right tackles have been playing so far he did himself a favor by being unable to suit up against the Titans and Derrick Morgan. Fluker hasnít really had the impact in the running game that you would have hoped for yet.

12. D.J. Hayden, CB, Oakland Raiders
Grade: -4.6
Snaps: 136
Analysis: Heíd flown under the radar the first two weeks of the season but it all went horribly wrong in against the Broncos. Managed to miss a staggering six tackles in that game alone and is now our 98th (out of 103) ranked cornerback.

13. Sheldon Richardson, DE, New York Jets
Grade: +4.0
Snaps: 162
Analysis: Letís start with the not so good. He hasnít generated much pressure. Now letís get on to the good (and it is good), where he is really making a name for himself with his work against the run. Currently only J.J. Watt of the 3-4 ends has a higher rating in that regard.

14. Star Lotulelei, DT, Carolina Panthers
Grade: +7.8
Snaps: 108
Analysis: At the moment our sixth ranked defensive tackle on the year with nearly his entire grade coming against the run. In that regard only Damon Harrison has graded better as Lotulelei already makes a name for himself.

15. Kenny Vaccaro, S, New Orleans Saints
Grade: -3.1
Snaps: 175
Analysis: The grade is perhaps harsher than it appears. Vaccaro has brought some playmaking and athleticism to the Saints secondary, but heís failed when used as a pass rusher (no pressure on 11 rushes) and earned slight negatives against the run and in coverage. Do his big plays make up for this?

16. E.J. Manuel, QB, Buffalo Bills
Grade: -7.7
Snaps: 227
Analysis: It started off pretty well but since then Manuel has stuttered and then imploded with a horrid outing versus a rampant Jets defense. His numbers donít do justice as he sits bottom of our quarterback grading, reminding us of a time when it was okay for rookies to struggle.

17. Jarvis Jones, OLB, Pittsburgh Steelers
Grade: +0.4
Snaps: 130
Analysis: Was made a starter for Week 2 but it wasnít until this week against the Bears where he started to look the part. With just four hurries isnít doing much rushing the passer but is showing his value with some active work against the run.

18. Eric Reid, S, San Francisco 49ers
Grade: +0.9
Snaps: 168
Analysis: You canít like the five missed tackles but with two picks and a pass break up heís proved an ample replacement for Dashon Goldson. Now itís up to him to prove he can be more than that.

19. Justin Pugh, OT, New York Giants
Grade: -5.2
Snaps: 193
Analysis: The dam burst against Charles Johnson and the Panthers and the outcome is that of all offensive tackles in the league, the 17 combined sacks, hits and hurries Pugh gave up are third most. He hasnít been much better against the run.

20. Kyle Long, G, Chicago Bears
Grade: +2.7
Snaps: 194
Analysis: Impressive when he gets his hands on defenders but yet to really get to grips with his pass protection where heís already been beaten for a hit and seven hurries. Itís a testament to how good his run blocking is that he still has a positive grade.

21. Tyler Eifert, TE, Cincinnati Bengals
Grade: +1.7
Snaps: 128
Analysis: Started the season off reasonably well, catching 9-of-11 targets and doing a decent enough job when the team had him blocking in space (as opposed to the big defensive ends they leave for Jermaine Gresham). A nice one two punch right now.

22. Desmond Trufant, CB, Atlanta Falcons
Grade: +0.2
Snaps: 198
Analysis: A decent enough start after it looked like he might struggle in preseason. Instead while heís allowed 12-of-17 into his coverage theyíve come at just 10.3 yards per catch and heís broken up four balls.

23. Shariff Floyd, DT, Minnesota Vikings
Grade: 0.0
Snaps: 90
Analysis: Struggled to do much against the run so far but has flashed his ability rushing the passer with a hit and two hurries on limited snaps. It seems that the Vikings usage of him might act as a check on his impact.

24. Bjoern Werner, OLB, Indianapolis Colts
Grade: -2.6
Snaps: 84
Analysis: Around 30 snaps a game seems his limit right now as the team prefers to use him purely as a situational pass rusher. In that regard heís been better since Week one even if heís certainly not prolific. He currently owns six hurries on 52 pass rushes.

25. Xavier Rhodes, CB, Minnesota Vikings
Grade: +1.7
Snaps: 162
Analysis: Not quite worked his way into the lineup as an every down player but has more than held his own enough that you wouldnít expect it too long before he does. Allowed just 7-of-13 balls into his coverage at 6.6 yards per catch.

26. Datone Jones, DE, Green Bay Packers
Grade: -3.9
Snaps: 49
Analysis: The plan to set him loose in obvious passing situations has yielded the one sack and absolutely nothing else in his 49 snaps on defense. File this guy as one for the future.

27. DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Houston Texans
Grade: +5.3
Snaps: 208
Analysis: Making a mockery of his draft selection already, Hopkins has a healthy 243 yards and zero drops while making his way to seventh spot in our receiver rankings. An early contender for Rookie of the Year at this point.

28. Sylvester Williams, DT, Denver Broncos
Grade: -2.7
Snaps: 44
Analysis: The fifth best defensive tackle on the Broncos roster at this point, delivering no pressure and minimal impact against the run. So far Williams is not having the impact the team was likely hoping for.

29. Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Minnesota Vikings
Grade: +1.9
Snaps: 31
Analysis: You read that right, just 31 snaps for Patterson who is being brought along slowly on offense, with bigger contributions expected on special teams. The good news is when heís been in heís turned seven targets into five receptions and 73 yards.

30. Alec Ogletree, LB, St Louis Rams
Grade: -2.5
Snaps: 190
Analysis: Makes a whole lot of tackles but has had some issues when blockers arenít kept off him. The four missed tackles arenít ideal either but heís made a decent enough start to life in the NFL.

31. Travis Frederick, C, Dallas Cowboys
Grade: -0.2
Snaps: 208
Analysis: Coming off his best game as a pro with a fine run blocking display against the Rams. Will need to get better in pass protection though because two sacks, a hit and three hurries is too much for a center to have allowed at this stage.

32. Matt Elam, S, Baltimore Ravens
Grade: 0.0
Snaps: 146

Suprised at Vaccaro's grade. I thought he had been playing good up to this point.

Default Re: PFF Spotlight on 1st rounders so far.

I don't think that's a really fair assessment of Mingo, who has been excellent so far imo. First of all, the guy is recovering from a serious injury (bruised lung) which kept him out most of the preseason and the first game.

Secondly, he's having to share time with two really good OLBs in Sheard and Kruger. It looks like Sheard is going to be out this week, so Mingo should be on the field the majority of the game.

I know this, he recorded a sack on the first professional play of his career in Week 2 and, in Week 3, he was called upon to play basically the whole second half with Sheard out and he did very well... A sack, four tackles, another QB hit and several hurries.

If that isn't enough through his first three games and under the circumstances, I think their expectations are a bit too high.

Don't think it has anything to do with expectations, they just grade the player regardless of hype or reputation.

Mingo is +0.4 not like he's -5 or something like that. He's one of the best rookies according to them, what more were you expecting?

Didn't like the selection of Long at first but from his first action in preseason I have loved everything I see about him.




He's such a mauler and plays with such passion, its just great to see. I see cutler having to calm him down and set him aside sometimes cuz he's so amped.




Carbine, does it show ratings for other draft picks? Would like to see what they say about our RT Jordan Mills. He's been a 5th round gem so far.

I'll admit I don't know much about how these ratings work. I was talking more about the comments underneath the rating, which for Mingo had a tone of "meh."

I'm guessing these ratings are something which rise (or fall) based on the amount of time a guy plays.

I'm genuinely curious.

Miami hasn't really played Jordan a lot, but he had his best game against Atlanta like the report says. I like what I see from him. He reminds me of Jason Taylor. If he can become even half as good as JT with Wake on the other side.....

Weird to think, but has any team used their 1st round picks over the last 3 years better than the Panthers? Right now Star is looking great, and on top of that we drafted the the best defensive player in the draft last year (Luke Kuechly) and Cam Newton in 2011.

Milliner has been meh and now he's injured (again). But It's obviously way too early to give up on him, and he looked okay against the Bills in somewhat limited playing time.

Sheldon Richardson has been fantastic though.

Wake is an animal. I knew he was good... Didn't know he was that good. He's definitely the most impressive DE I've seen this season.

Yah and he's underrated. You never see him on top 5 DE lists. Hopefully he plays on Monday. We're going to need him.

Mingo went from being one of the best 1st rounders to one of the worst with his display yesterday, according to PFF.

He had a -3.7 grade, bringing his season total to -3.3
