Comparing the two-deep talent between Florida and Michigan

Saw this on the forums this morning and thought it was interesting.  Of course these two-deep charts are very notional.

Credit goes to user BostonGator for putting this together.

EDIT:  Indeed these are recruiting rankings and are not necessarily indicitive of current 2017 talent.  Interesting nonetheless.

I really like the concept behind this.  It's Madden-izing the rosters based on their 24/7 rank.  Even if it is not perfect, it allows a very quick glance into the projected talent levels at each position.  Sure, you'll have outliers, but still pretty cool.

That also makes me wonder why there aren't any scouting sites for college players.  It'd be pretty cool to have a similar ranking system based on college performance, which would pair really well with this...

We have the same Offense average and Defensive average? Interesting.

And our Defense 2 is higher rated than Defense 1. Probably due to Jordan Glasgow being put on Defense 1 instead of Metellus.

No sarcasm, I'm seriously stunned that I managed to make that basic mistake.  I was an English major, fergodsakes!  I am shamed.  My family is shamed.  My cat is shamed.

My only excuse is that I've spent the last two days giving the soul-destroying and utterly useless piece of garbage test that is the M-Step to my 11th graders.  Sample direction:  "The highlighting tool highlights material you want to emphasize."  (Guess what the magnifying tool does?  For 100 MGoPoints!)  The directions take a good 10 minutes to read, they are full of gems like this, and we have to read them both days.  To all 5 classes each day.

The rating thing is cool, but there are other factors too.

I mean backups being a freshman ranked .9400 compared to a starter being a junior ranked .9400 are going to be on two different levels talent wise (for the sake of argument) despite being ranked the same. So it's a bit skewed to look at it that way.

I mean would you rather face freshman 1.000 Rashan Gary or face him right now?

Our team appears to be ever so slightly better when they were in high school.


anyways seems be a very close match up. Our O-line being rated high may help me sleep more at night... maybe a minute or two

Interesting to see but they have some players switched around it would seem.

I'd put DPJ on first team over Black on offense.

On defense I'd put Long and Hill as the CB starters, not Washington and Thomas. I'd also put Metullus and Hudson over Glasgow and Furbush. 

All of those changes would bump up our O1 and D1 ratings a good bit.

Khaleke Hudson should be swapped with Noah Furbush and be the starting SAM LB.

David Long and Lavert Hill need to be swapped with Ambry Thomas and Keith Washington and be the starting CBs.

Josh Metellus should be swapped with Jordan Glasgow and be the starting SS.
