Every year, there’s a number of NFL draft prospects that PFF is higher on than the public consensus. With play-by-play grading, we feel most confidently projecting those who have graded out already at a high level — preferably for multiple seasons.

When those players who grade well also tick the physical boxes for their respective positions, we feel even better, and that’s the case with the 10 players featured below. 

RB Dameon Pierce, Florida (PFF Board Rank: 74th | RB3)

It’s easy to see why Pierce may not get a ton of hype. For whatever reason, he was never a full-time starter in his four seasons at Florida. However, he was exceedingly difficult to bring down when he did tote the rock. Pierce earned the highest rushing grade in the country this past season (93.6), and his 39 broken tackles on 87 carries in 2021 was one of the highest forced missed tackle rates we’ve ever seen. Pierce also possesses ideal size for the position at 5-foot-9, 220 pounds — that’s a load to bring down.

WR Skyy Moore, Western Michigan (PFF Board Rank: 30th | WR6)

Moore was the highest-graded wide receiver in college football last year, as he racked up 1,255 yards on 90 catches with 10 scores. At the very least, Moore is a quality slot option who has some nifty yards-after-catch (YAC) ability. The junior led the FBS with 26 broken tackles after the catch in 2021. I think he can be more than solely a slot, as he played 65.5% of his snaps split wide last year and possesses the desired suddenness combined with play strength to get off the line of scrimmage.
