How get the grade
The grade is made up of four main categories; Heigh-Weight-Speed (Athleticism), Production, Intangibles and durability. The key categories make up a portion of the overall grade but they are also supplemented by individual position traits e.g. Running Back – patience, power, balance, vision, hands, blocking, agility and competitiveness. Grades are only given after seeing, at least, four tapes of every player with at least one junior/sophomore tape.
