...because I am hunkered down on a cold, wet NY day, I did a count of the number of players by position that NFL.com has assigned a Top 50 Grade. You'll notice that the total count is 62 players, since there are several players with same grade.
A Top 50 cut-off is of course arbitrary, but anyhow... no real surprises here. There is a shocking number of Top 50 secondary players -- 9 CBs and 7 Safeties. That's gotta be some kinda record. DE at 9 looks pretty rich as well.
In the end it will all boil down to Reese's draft acumen, but on the surface this is not a Top 50 player draft that necessarily aligns with our needs.
