(Update: I'm leaving a list of players I need help on after the jump)
So I wanted to start comprehensively investigating the Bengals draft picks under Mike Brown. I compiled a database of all our draft picks and then made some notes about the draft picks. Some are objective things like the player's position and former college while other are subjective (like my 1 to 5 rating) and some have elements of both (did they come from a big name college program - what would you call TCU?).
But then I got lazy and didn't look at it for awhile.
Well, the draft approaches folks and it's time to look again. I need some help, mostly for the "subjective 1 to 5 rating" and "productive starter" columns. I need your input because I really don't have much to go on memory-wise from the mid 90s and earlier picks. I was just too young to watch games with any sort of ability to critically evaluate what I was seeing at the time - though at least I was sober.
So, here's the spreadsheet: Download Bengals Draft Pick Database
Feel free to check it out, make whatever updates you want (seriously, anything), and email it back to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or just leave a note in the comments. It's a sortable database, just click on the arrow buttons next to each column heading. Right now, it's organized in order of most recent draft pick first.
It's raw right now and I'd like to finish the player grades first before I start going nuts trying to break it down. Suggestions welcome.
After the jump, I am putting a list of players I need help with:
