If Ten Different NFL Scouts Rated all 32 of the 2017 NFL Draft Classes, there would be Ten Different Draft Class Rankings and the Reason is that all Ten Different Scouts would be Using Ten Different Set of Standards. This is not to say that all Ten Rankings would be Wrong, but all Ten Different Rankings did not Take into Consideration all of the Undrafted Free Agents that were not Drafted in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Some of the Best Players in NFL History were not Drafted and they Fell-Through-The-Cracks of not being Drafted in the NFL Draft and were not going to get a chance to play in the NFL until an NFL Team Signed Them as an Undrafted Free Agent, including Kurt Warner; Two Longtime Friends, Warren Moon and Wes WelkerPriest Holmes, John Randle, James Harrison, and then the recently retired Tony Romo. These Undrafted Free Agents also Include Three Hall of Fame Quarterbacks, includeing Warner, Moon, and Romo. Also Remember: Warner was Sacking Groceries before given a chance to play in the NFL.

Basically, there are some Unbelievable Diamonds-In-The-Rough out there and The Falcons, Saints, Buccaneers, and Pantherdid a Great Job in finding some Incredible Undrafted Free Agents. Some of these Incredible Undrafted Free Agents include SS Quincy Mauger of Georgia, OT Will Freeman of Southern Miss, WR Reggie Davis of Georgia, and OC Cam Keizer of Portland State for the Atlanta Falcons; OC Cameron Tom of Southern Miss and OG Clint Van Horn of Marhall for the Saints; TE Antony Auclair of Laval, OLB Richie Brown of Mississippi State, OLB Paul Magloire of Arizona, and CB Jonathan Moxey of Boise State; and then WR Cameron Posey of Purdue and MLB Ben Boulware of Clemson for the Carolina Panthers.

I have decided to Rate and Rank Every NFL Team within their NFL Conference and their are Eight Conferences in the NFL with Four Teams within each Conference.

Please Remember: Every NFL Scout or NFL Analysis Scout has their own Evaluation Process! My Rating and Ranking Evaluation Process for over 40 Years has been my MEARS RATING SYSTEM which Stands-For MAX EMFINGER ASSETS RATING SYSTEM. A Football Player with Great ASSETS is a Player with a Great Forty, a Great Vertical Jump, a Great Pro-Shuttle, or a Great Standing Broad Jump in Relationship To His Position.

THE MEARS RATING SYSTEM

There is a Set Standard Measurables that is Set for Every Position on the Football Field to include each Measurable that is Measured at a Super Combine. These Set Standards will not Change, but since the Football Players at Every Level are getting Bigger, Stronger, and Faster; the MEARS RATINGS will Continue to get Higher and Higher and Higher!

The MEARS RATING SYSTEM, or a similar type Rating System, is very important for all of the NFL Scouts, and the NFL Scouting Combine is the first time that Really “Accurate Measurables” are recorded on the NFL Players before The NFL Draft. It’s easy to say someone can run a 4.4 or a 4.3 Forty, but before an Accurate Hand-Held Timing by a Professional Talent Scout or either by a slower, but Accurate Laser Timing is done, most Forty Times are less than Accurate.

Technique is also very important and that is why College Football Players before the Annual NFL Scouting Combine, before entering the NFL Draft, will hire a Sports Trainer to train and teach them how to do a proper Vertical Jump, Pro-Agility Shuttle, a Standing Broad Jump and yes, the Forty.

Quarterbacks and Kickers are always going to be hard to measure, because they either do not go to Super Elite Combines or they do extremely poor at Super Combines so these two positions must be evaluated very carefully on their Highlight Film or in person and then their MEARS RATING is going to be estimated. I have learned how to Evaluate them and give them an honest MEARS RATING.

SCOUTING NOTE I: The Measurables of a Football Prospect are of Really Great Importance, but it is Very Obvious that some Very Successful NFL Teams feel that they are of Really Great Importance, while some other NFL Teams do not believe that they are of Great Importance. The Ultimate Reason that the NFL Scouting Combine is so Important is because in many cases, this is the First Time that the NFL Scouts get a chance to Really View how Fast and how Athletic that a Prospect is in Relationship to his Position with other Players at the Same Position.

SCOUTING NOTE II: Before a Player is Drafted and Given Millions of Dollars, NFL Teams have got to have Current and Accurate Measurables on Every Player on their Big Draft Board.  In 1976, when I was with the Cowboys, Texas Tech had a “Try-Out” Camp and a Wide Receiver ran a much Faster Forty than we had him as his best Forty. Since we needed to know how Accurate this New Forty was, Gil put me on a Plane to Lubbock to Run-Him in another Forty, to Update Our Files. When I got to Lubbock, it had been Raining for two days, but their Basketball Gym had a Long Straight Lobby that Included about Sixty-Yards so I Marked-Off Forty-Yards and he Ran a 4.38 Forty and a 4.39 Forty, giving us the Accurate Measurable that we Needed.

Marshon Lattimore (6-0, 193, 4.33, 38.5, 4.13, 132, 19) of the New Orleans Saints had  Incredible Speed Measurables at the 2017 Scouting Combine and In Fact his 2,866 MEARS RATING was the Second Best behind DE Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns with a Mind-Boggling 2,929 MEARS RATING, and who was Drafted #1 Overall.

Lattimore had Maximum MEARS RATING Points in the Pro-Shuttle and the Bench Press; plus Multi Points in Several others. With his 2,866 MEARS RATING, Lattimore became the #1 Rated Player in the NFC South. Tight End O.J. Howard of Alabama and Tampa Bay Buccaneers also had an Unbelievable 2,847 MEARS RATING and he Finished in the Top Five in the 2017 Draft Class. New SLOT Back Christian McCaffrey of Stanford and Carolina Panthers with a Fabulous 2,829 MEARS RATING will help QB Cam Newton move their New Offense down the field.

SCOUTING NOTE III: If the Player ran two Forties at the NFL Scouting Combine, I averaged both of those Two Forties with their best Forty on Record. If they did not run the Forty at the NFL Scouting Combine, I averaged both of his best two Forties on Record. On all of their Speed Measurables, if they did not run at the Scouting Combine or at Pro Day, that Measurable will be in RED.

SCOUTING NOTE IV: Although The MEARS RATINGS are Based on a Player and his Measurables in Relationship to a Set Standard for his Position, there are also Coaches Evaluation Points that are also Very Important. I am still in the Process of Evaluating every Player in the 2017 NFL Draft and although every Player received from 100 to 200 Evaluation Points, some Players with Weak Measurables were Absolute Freaks on their Highlight Film and consequently were given Extra Evaluation Points.

SCOUTING NOTE V: In Rating and Ranking the NFL Teams, in the 2017 NFL Draft, I am only Counting the NFL Players with Super Gold (7)Gold (6), Blue (5), and Red (4) MEARS RATINGS and have taken an Average of all of these Players on Each Team and Counted the Average for the Final NFL Team Rankings. Also, some of these Free Agents may have already been released.

SCOUTING NOTE VI: Gold Ratings Include Free Agents With Incredible Measurables! All of these Free Agents have Incredible MEARS RATINGS of over 2,700, but since they were Free Agents, and not Drafted, they may not be as Hot a Prospect as those that were Drafted ahead of them. Always Remember that a Player with Incredible Measurables Can Get-To the NFL from Any College in America.

SCOUTING NOTE VII: In dealing with Free Agents, I have Decided to Give One Super-Star Free Agent to Each NFL Team, including Players like Dontari Poe of the Falcons; Adrian Peterson of the SaintsDeSean Jackson of the Bucs; and Captain Munnerlyn of the Panthers in the NFC South Team Rankings.

About maxemfingerrecruiting

My mission and goal is to search for that hidden high school football talent that has not been found yet. I then evaluate him and try to help him to get some publicity. In 2003, 2004, 2005. and 2006, I hosted my Annual 7on7 National Championship. My goal was to get great athletes to one area where I could evaluate them and then help them with college coaches. The only drawback was that college coaches wanted to see the hidden gems in a game-type highlight film and so the college coaches suggested to me that I host a real All-American Bowl Game so that they could view these talented players in a highlight film, playing against other talented players. It's noted that the NCAA doesn't allow the college coaches to attend All-American Games or practices and so the Game Film is a great tool for the college coaches. In 2005, I hosted my 1st Annual All-American Bowl Game. In nine games in nine years, my wife and I have helped 549 HS football players to get a scholarship that came to our first Bowl Game practice without a single scholarship offer. This also does not count over 1,000 players who we have helped that did not play in our game, including over 100 players in the 2010 Recruiting Season. My Super Elite Top Gun Camp idealogy, is of course, to get as many Top Football Players to a Top Gun Camp so that all of my coaches and I can evaluate them, rate them, rank them, and promote them. There will always be "Diamonds in the Rough" to be found. My First Annual Max Emfinger's Super Elite Top Gun Camp was in July of 2010. The Camp was amazing and loaded with unknown and known talent. Many of them were invited to play in our 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic. In 2007, in my 3rd Annual All-American Bowl Game, a player by the name of Kareem Jackson came to our first Monday practice, without a single scholarship offer. Jackson decided to come out early and he became a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.
