2020 NFL Free Agency: Predicting landing spots for every PFF top-50 free agent


Recommended Posts

The rumor mill is churning as the NFL Scouting Combine approaches, and it’s starting to get clearer as to which free agents will re-sign as well as those who will leave and their likely landing spot(s). PFF recently debuted our free agency rankings page, featuring advanced analysis, PFF grades, wins above replacement (WAR), contract projections, team needs and much more. Using that one-of-a-kind database that includes data used by every single NFL team, we predict where every single free agent in PFF’s top 50 rankings lands this offseason:

47. CB BRIAN POOLE – NEW YORK JETS

Projected contract: 3 years, $7.5 million per year ($12.5 million guaranteed)

After spending the first three seasons of his career in Atlanta and being relatively average (at best) in all three years, Brian Poole came to New York and had a career year in the slot by ranking among the 10 highest graded players in coverage at the alignment. They signed Poole last March largely because defensive coordinator Gregg Williams thought he would be a great fit in his defense and clearly, he was and likely isn’t going anywhere.

 

 

18. WR ROBBY ANDERSON – LAS VEGAS RAIDERS

Projected contract: 4 years $13.13 million per year ($28 million guaranteed)

Robby Anderson is the breakout player we have all been waiting for over the last few seasons. He’s a high-risk, high-reward free agent, never producing a PFF grade that cracked the top 40 at his position. As a result, it’s hard telling as of now which team is going to risk it for the Robby biscuit in free agency. That being said, the Raiders are an intriguing team that has been linked to Anderson, though the fit is questionable. Jon Gruden runs a West Coast attack that takes few shots downfield and doesn’t integrate as many vertical routes as other offenses, which has been Anderson’s nourishment throughout most of his career. My colleague Ben Linsey recently wrote a fantastic article breaking down how the Jets failed to take advantage of Robby Anderson’s greatest asset. I recently wrote about how Derek Carr should be the starting quarterback for the Raiders in Las Vegas and mentioned that Gruden should consider swerving from his West Coast philosophies and incorporate more shots downfield. If Gruden listens, this somewhat likely signing might pay off.
