Playmaker Score 2017 (ESPN version)

Here are Nathan Forster's Playmaker Score projections for the top WR prospects of 2017. John Ross comes out as our No. 1 prospect even though Playmaker Score doesn't account for 40 time. Corey Davis has one of the strongest projections ever for a senior. Mike Williams comes out as a bit overrated -- not a lot, just a bit. As we did last year, there will be an expanded piece with all the Playmaker Scores for 2017 (both "rating" and "projection") on FO next week. We'll also do the same with Nathan's SackSEER projections for edge rushers and an upgraded BackCAST projection system for running backs.

Qbase will be posted before the draft too, right?

Yes, I have a couple of other things that need to be done before I finish it up.

Thanks Aaron. Unfortunately, I'm certain the team I root for will ignore it and do the opposite. Fortunately for you, they play in the same division as New England.

How McCags didn't get fired for taking Hack in Rd 2 is beyond me.
Why are the Jets also one of the WORST back round drafting teams in all football? Seriously Jets Rd 4-7 is mystically awful, for about a decade now.

Will this report be posted as a Football Outsiders version (with full content) before the draft?

Good stuff, looking forwards to it.
