It’s notoriously difficult to make any definitive judgment about players based on preseason action; there are a lot of back-ups flying around and teams don’t like to show their upcoming opponents too much by way of complicated blitzes, etc.
That said, if we don’t have any views on preseason, what’s the point in playing it at all? So we’ve mitigated issues regarding strength of opposition by only considering play against starters (except where noted) and compiled a rating for every first round pick, judging them against what we’d like to see at this stage from a player drafted at that position:
Green = Exceeded expectations
Amber = Met expectations
Red = Fallen below our expectations
