Mayock's take: "I've been banging my head for two months that the Browns needed to draft Trent Richardson. ... They're saying this kid is so special, not only do we believe in him at four, but we're going to give away an extra pick to get a running back in the big-boy division. You play the Steelers, Ravens, Bengals -- bad weather, sloppy fields. What does this kid do for you? He keeps you in the game, he shortens the game, and he gives you a chance to win in the fourth quarter."
|96-100||Future Hall of Famer||Top Pick||A once-in-a-generation type prospect who could change how his position is played|
|85-95||Immediate Starter||1st||An impact player with the ability/intangibles to become a Pro Bowl player. Expect to start immediately except in a unique situation (i.e. behind a veteran starter).|
|70-84||Eventual Starter||2nd-3rd||A quality player who will contribute to the team early on and is expected to develop into a starter. A reliable player who brings value to the position.|
|50-69||Draftable Player||4th-7th||A prospect with the ability to make team as a backup/role player. Needs to be a special teams contributor at applicable positions. Players in the high range of this category might have long-term potential.|
|20-49||Free Agent||UDFA||A player with solid measurables, intangibles, college achievements, or a developing skill that warrants an opportunity in an NFL camp. In the right situation, he could earn a place on a 53-man roster, but most likely will be a practice squad player or a camp body.|
