    Re: Scott Wright's prospect comparisons

    Would be nice to see some reasons as to why hes is making these comparisons.

    Are the comparisons made to strengths, weaknesses or both or what?

    Its all fine and dandy to say this guy is much like this guy, but its nice to know what the base of that comparison is.

    IMO Revel, it's a matter of translation. The kind of player a guy is in college may or may not be the kind of player he is in the NFL. What Wright is doing is making that translation for us. What kind of player will Carriker be? Think Seymour. What kind of player will Landry be? Think Reed.

    It's not an exact science, but instead of trying to analyze all the quantitative variables, Wright packages it all neatly together in a qualitative answer that is easy to digest.

    Personally, I have always enjoyed Wright's prospect comparisons. It attempts to put a current face on the future prospect.

    the Alan Branch - John Henderson comparison is much better then Branch being compared to Shaun Rogers IMO
