Browns:

-Phil Taylor has been on PUP. He'll return soon though. (rookie DTs are playing great in his place currently).

-Jabaal Sheard has been getting double teamed a lot. Not getting as many sacks as last year but is still playing well and getting pressures.

-Greg Little suckin ass with his drops.

-Jordan Cameron looks really good as a receiving TE. I think he can be our answer as a starter at the position going forward.

-Owen Marecic stinks. Can't catch, below average blocker.

-Buster Skrine. Good enough to be a #4 CB, maybe #3 CB tops but that is a stretch. Has gotten burned a good bit this year, but then again was forced into starting duty due to Joe Haden's suspension and Sheldon Brown's demotion due to age.

-Jason Pinkston. Good pick. Solid starting LG who should be a part of a good young OLine going forward.

-Eric Hagg was our starting FS but that experiment didn't last long and he is a gameday inactive from now on.



Not a bad draft so far. All of those guys have started multiple games. Taylor, Sheard, Pinkston, Cameron all look like permanent starters.....and if Little could turn around his catching woes he could be one as well but it's too early to tell still.

Patriots

1st
Nate Solder- Solid starting LT. Still has problems being overpowered, and can get sloppy with his technique leading to sacks, but for the most part he limits everyone to 1-2 plays a game and has been solid in the run game. I'm fine with this pick although at the time and like pretty much everyone now I think we should have traded up for JJ Watt.

2nd
Ras-I Dowling- Bust city so far, he was IR'd his first year and is currently 5th on our awful CB depth chart. He's actually played well whenever he's been out there and was our starter week 1 of 2011, but for whatever reason he only gets 5 or so snaps a game.

Shane Vereen- Pretty much no contribution so far. He's had nagging injuries his whole time here so far and is 4th on out RB depth chart. I still have hope that he can develop into a good 3rd down back, so we can take Woodhead off the field, but as of right now his clock is ticking fast.

3rd
Stevan Ridley- He's been pretty damn good so far. He has had some fumbling issues and hasn't made a huge impact against good run defense teams, but he's explosive, physical, and isn't hesitant. He's been the best of the class so far.

Ryan Mallet- Hasn't played besides the preseason for good reason. He's a very poor system fit here right now, but his arm is undeniable. I'd like to see him play with the 1's at some point (obviously not if it means a Brady injury) because when he's played with the 2's he's not accurate enough to throw with guys who don't get separation. I don't think he'll have a huge FA market for him at the end of his contract so hopefully we can retain him and draft some receivers that match his skill set if he's here long term.

4th
Marcus Cannon- Not great, not terrible either. He's essentially our reserve lineman who gives people breathers at OT-OG. Very good in the run game, but his pass protection is shaky. The coaching staff is still figuring out his NFL position.

Everybody else is irrelevant.

Von miller- although I'm biased, I feel like he's the best 4-3 olb in the nfl atm. Already one of the best pass rushers in the nfl, he's become a force against the run this year. He still has room for improvement in his coverage ability, although he's rarely asked to do so. Best player on the broncos bar none.

Orlando franklin- started out looking very confused his rookie year, primarily against the pass. Progressively got better a the year went on, a very good run blocker. Has looked solid thus far, though still can struggle against speed rushers.

Rahim moore- looked utterly awful least year. missed loyally literally a million tackles and just wasn't ready. He supposedly devoted himself in the preseason and looks like a completely different player. hasn't missed a tackle yet and, while he hasn't made a lot of impact plays/picks, hasn't been beaten yet and seems to be in good position, which isn't bad for a safety. Reminds me a bit of kenny phillips.

Nate irving- limited snaps so far, vons backup.

Quentin carter- played decently as a rookie. Got hurt in training camp, hasn't seen much time thus far.

Julius thomas- hurt early last season, has done litrally nothing since.

Mike mohamed- limited snaps as a rookie, nothing this year.

Virgil green- looks good when he plays, probably the best te on the roster. Was suspended for adderall to start the season but nothing the last two weeks.

Jeremy beal- nada

Chris harris- UDFA but looked really good. One of the best (as long as he's not playing wes welker) slot corners imo.

Unlike the rookies on the Jets, our Sophomores have all been doing some really good things. Mo Wilkerson might be our lone real bright star in applying pressure on the QB even if he isn't up there on sack totals, Jeremy Kerley really is blossoming into something special as a WR(Even though he has a lot to learn on when to fair catch deep in your territory)

Prince Amukamara is playing like a beast so far. Very pleased with his play, he's been lights out.

Awful in run support/tackling, but as a pure cover CB, he's been great.

Corey Liuget is finally starting to come around and had his best game as a pro against New Orleans. Other than him the only two players out of the '11 draft class that are even playing are Gilchrist who has been very iffy and Gachkar who is a special teams ace but nothing more. Brown and Wright have been hurt, and Mouton has pretty much been inactive all season.

KJ Wright (round 4) Was pretty much their only LB heading into this season and has done great so far.

Richard Sherman (round 5) had teams known what they know now this guy would be a first round pick. Playing at a pro bowl level.

Carpenter has been a big-time pleasant surprise. He's been a furiously good run-blocker at LG.
