Ill add that brendan Ferns was injured all of last year, and only had snaps in 1str game(VT). Small sample size.
And he wasnt cleared for spring ball. So wvu maybe shouldnt be that high.

So far the only one of these rankings I felt slighted by was the one the subject line said I would love.

I’m not in the business of defending Texas, but you know a rating system is crap when they have a guy who had 12 tackles and 1.5 sacks against USC with a rating of 37.5.

These PFF rankings have been mostly horrible. They list players that are walk ons and never play. I have no idea how they make there grade scores but most make no sense. I am pretty sure that if James Washington were returning at WR he would grade out about a 2.6 on their scale.

While their focus is on pro football, they seem rather ignorant of the college game.

They dropped the ball not having Calvin Bundage listed
Bundage has been moved to safety in the new defense.

Don’t blame PFF. @Nolaeer has done a crappy job of explaining what he’s posting. The position selections were made by the nimrod mods at the WVU site. After selecting the players based on their obviously limited understanding of the other nine teams in the conference, they look up their respective PFF ratings to create this comparison. It’s all designed to convince the WVU fans to keep coming back to the site to learn why they’re a shoo-in to win the conference.

Nolaeer feels compelled to share this with us to share in his delusions.

Negative. Bundage is one of two projected starting linebackers and on the updated roster he’s listed as a linebacker .

So, yes. He's a linebacker according to that as well. I like Bundage a lot, but he had a few costly penalties last season that, in my opinion, had tremendous impacts on the games. And if I remember correctly, he was offsides two or three times in one game. In addition to getting bigger, I hope he is also getting more mentally prepared.

I will take those offside penalties. Yes those are negative facets to his game, but the pressure and sacks he gets from those penalties definitely make up for it. We had 5 penalties for 40 yards and I know he had 2 offside penalties against OU, but he also had 2 sacks and 2 TFL in that game. Dude is a thumper with a high motor and I can roll with those penalties. No brakes all gas when it comes to his game.

Yeah, but you're acting like you can't get in to the backfield without also accruing several costly penalties. That's just not the case. You can still apply plenty of pressure and make plenty of plays in the backfield without frequently being offside.

I'm not implying that at all. I'm saying he (Bundage) has pretty good instincts. Does he make some mistakes and jump offsides? Sure. Per nflpenalties.com, Von Miller had 10 offsides penalties last year. I doubt many Broncos fans are calling for him to change his playing style considering he had 10 sacks last year. Their positions are a bit different, but the point I'm making is the same. I wouldn't limit the amount of times we bring Bundage off the edge. His benefits outweigh the negatives.

No, I am a Bronco fan and almost mentioned Von as well. Of course we want fewer penalties!
