Grading the Detroit Lions Free Agent acquisitions

1 of 8

While it may appear as though the Lions have done nothing in free agency this offseason, the Lions have actually made quite a few important moves that have returned starters or replaced starters. I have devised a grading system that I like to call the Payton Method Of Grading or the P.M.O.G. System to figure out just how the Lions have done thus far. Here’s how it works.

There are five categories all with a 1-5 rating. 5 being the best 1 being the worst. A 25 would represent a perfect score. The categories are as follows:

Health: Grading the player’s ability to stay healthy and uninjured throughout the season.

Big Play: Grading the big play ability. By this I mean the player’s game changing ability.

Dependability: Grading the player’s ability to be depended upon in tough situations. Example being the Lions depend on Golden Tate in 3rd down situations.

Smart Play: Grading the player based on their mistakes or lack there of. Including penalties, turnovers, and rookie mistakes on and off the field.

Impact: Grading the players overall impact on the team and it’s success.

Here we go.
