Buyer Beware on These 10 NFL Draft Prospects

In the NFL, success begins with the draft. Draft poorly and you are sure to struggle. 

Picking the wrong prospect can hurt a team in multiple ways. Not only is it stuck with a poor draft pick for a few years, but it also could miss out on the many other picks who will end up becoming great pros. 

In this slideshow, we take a bold look at 10 of this year's most dangerous prospects. These are all guys who have serious question marks and could go in the first two rounds of the draft.

 

Note: Throughout the article, I reference a Physical Tools ranking system. This system uses a formula to give a combined numeric value to every aspect of a player's physical measurables. This includes: height, weight, arm length, 40-yard-dash time, three-cone, short shuttle, broad jump, vertical jump and bench press.

I also incorporate a position-specific formula to assess a player's entire college production using weighted values. Each player's production grade is relative to his position and graded on a curve. 

Examples of last year's draft metric and its formulas can be seen by clicking here.
