LAMM AT LARGE: Grades Before the Test is Taken

Sports is one of the few places where grades are handed out before tests have been taken. Maybe the only place.


College recruiting classes are graded before any of the recruits enrolled in school. NFL draft classes are given grades before any of the players draw a paycheck.


Last week’s NFL draft class is obviously where I’m going with this. Nearly every draft expert has handed out “A’s” to Philadelphia and Seattle. Nearly every expert has given the Jaguars a below-average grade. Keep in mind most of these experts had Kentucky QB Will Levis going in the top 5, as high as No. 2. He didn’t go in the first round.


I’ll admit I wasn’t impressed with the Jaguars draft. Honestly, I only recognized the names of two of the Jaguars’ 13 draftees: Auburn running back Tank Bigsby and Florida linebacker Ventrell Miller.


What does that mean? Well, nothing.
