NYG Position Grades - Offense

Pep22 : 8/7/2019 10:42 am
QB:

-Depth: B
-Short term upside: For 2019 at least, one would think pretty modest upside. C.
-Longer term outlook: B. I think the DJ rave reviews in camp have put us all in a neutral "wait and see" position, far better than the "hurl yourself out of a window" feeling many of us had back on draft night.

RB:

-Depth: A-
-Short term upside: A. Barkley has a very reasonable chance of being the best RB in the league this year.
-Longer term outlook: A.

WR:

-Depth: D.
-Short term upside: D.
-Longer term outlook: D-.
Comment: the Tate suspension, Coleman injury and short term Shep injury (less of a concern but not to be dismissed). Slayton missing time further dampens the mood on this front. Do any of the "no names" inspire optimism? Or will we scour the waiver wire for cuts or a guy that never signed (Michael Crabtree?)?

TE:

-Depth: B+
-Short term upside: B+. I think the optimism about Engram after year 1 was higher than it currently is. Still, he is a very unique talent along the lines of Jordan Reed but with more speed.
-Longer term outlook: Good mix of ages, upside, reliability.

Tackles:

-Depth: C+
-Short term upside: B-, two sturdy vets.
-Longer term outlook: D. No real youth to be optimistic about.

Interior OL:

-Depth: B+
-Short term upside: A.
-Longer term outlook: A, particularly if Halapio is the real deal.
Running Back A+++

Don't know what you have been watching but there isn't a more dangerous offenive weapon in the league than Barkley. For those who remember OJ Simpson, Barkley looks better.
Hopefully in Shurmur's O

JAG WRs do well. Diggs and Thielen aren't exactly Megatron and Randy Moss.
I love grades before the test

Agreed. I mistakenly dropped the +.

Right, b/c we never discuss or evaluate anything in advance of a season.

I agree. And I think Eli does well with pre-snap reads when he doesn’t have a superstar WR that he has to keep happy.
These are fair grades

This year will be an interesting case study to see what happens when you have C's and D's at QB and WR, and A's and B's at RB and OL.

How much will one pick up the other and how much will one pull down the other?
I think WRs will be fine if they can get open

Don't give up your day job for NFL position grading...
