Here's What An NFL Team's Evaluations For Draft Prospect Looks Like

The build-up to the NFL Draft can make or break a potential NFL prospect. The kids spend countless hours making their combine/pro-day numbers stand out above the rest and hope that some scouts can evaluate them correctly. But what do scouting reports actually look like?

Luckily, some guy stumbled upon the 2010 NFL Draft evaluations for the Oakland Raiders and threw them up on the image sharing site Imgur. Now we can see how one of the league’s most polarizing teams evaluates talent.

Let’s see how they did.

Sam Bradford

What They Got Right

• Bradford is a medical liability. He suffered back-to-back season-ending ACL tears in 2013-14 and was limited due to a high ankle sprain in 2011. Every time he takes a hit, Eagles fans were probably wondering if he was seriously hurt.

• How will he handle intense pressure? Not well, apparently. He’s been sacked 148 times in his five-year career and has thrown 52 interceptions. Then, when the Eagles trade up to draft Carson Wentz, he crumbles and demands a trade.

What They Got Wrong

• Basically just take every strong point and put it here.

Rob Gronkowski

What They Got Right

• Does not go down easy after the catch. He’s a man child out there.

• Best all-around player in the draft. It’s either him or the next guy.

What They Got Wrong

• “No. 2 TE” — Or just an all-pro badass.

• Average route runner/average hands. I think the numbers kind of speak for themselves. He doesn’t have a high drop percentage and the dude is usually catching balls with another guy draped over him.

• Failed to mention how great of a partier he is.

Dez Bryant

What They Got Right

• Possible beast. I’m just trying to imagine him in the Steelers offense right now if we had taken him instead of Pouncey. An AB/Dez combo is deadly.

• Lacks concentration at times. Once you’re in Dez’s head, it’s pretty much game over. When he’s got Weeden, Cassel, or Kellen Moore tossing him the pigskin, then he mentally checks out.

What They Got Wrong

• Lacks elite burst to track down a ball. He once raced a damn horse in college and barely lost.

• Final ranking of 2, which is to indicate he won’t be a star, just a starter. Nailed that one, Sanjay.

Jimmy Clausen

What They Got Right

• Pretty much nothing.

What They Got Wrong

• Pretty much everything.
