After spending many hours watching over the game, the grades for players and positions become easier to judge. A player grade does not always mean they put up the best stats on the board. This is the preseason where you look for technique, positioning, good and the bad. A combination of all those things lead to a player’s grade. The starting point is always a C, good plays raise it, while bad plays lower it. If a player did not play in the game, they get a N/A grade. Hard to grade a player when you don’t see them.
So first we will start on the offense at the quarterback position.
