|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.|
