Given what we know now about 2013.
Assume 20 (first person to proclaim "hold me we only have 12 spots available" gets kicked in the fruitstand.
4-5 OL (3 tackles, 2 need to be plug and play).
1 QB (maybe 2 if Jones bolts).
3 WR (1 "Next Percy Harvin", 2 at least 6 feet).
2 TB (can be one pure and one scat back).
The following year we will be back to 85.
We meet most our needs in 2013 (OL and pure over 6 foot WR being the exception).
I'll give the class a b+/A-.
Perhaps. higher if we finissh with Wilson & Bell
I would agree with you. Definitely need to go Oline heavy and I agree a BIG WR would be nice.
I rate this class an A for sure. I think guys like Darron Lee Tracy Sprinkle and Tavion Jacobs will be pleasant surprises...Especially Lee IMO
Regarding 2014: RAEKWON.
Using your assumed class of 20, the breakdown should look something like this:
1 ATH (RB/Slot WR)
4 OL (M Jones + 3 true tackles)
2 DL (1 rush end, 1 DT...2 rush ends if one of the '13 DTs redshirts)
2 CB (Webb +1)
1 K (Gotta have one in this class)
If you rate the class an A what grade would you have given if it included Dorian Johnson, Quick and Bell.
3 players many had projected in this class.
Lol @ "1 next percy harvin" well played
Fill in the blanks...
1 QB. (Watson? Barker? Henderson? ___?)
1 RB (Hurd?)
1 ATH (RB/Slot WR) ____?
3 WR (Lattimore, Kief?, Harris? ____?)
4 OL (M Jones + ?Trout, _____?). Maybe 5 if good ones
2 DL (1 rush end, 1 DT...2 rush ends if one of the '13 DTs redshirts) _____?
3 LB 2 (McMillan, Berger, Booker, Garrett? _____?)
CB (Webb, kid from NJ? ____?)
2 S (Glass?, ?Blanding, ?West____?)
1 K (Gotta have one in this class ____?)

Throw in the 2 lineman from ft lauderdal and tarpon springs respectively...
I think booker fills a rush end spot.
There is the stud DE from ny\nj we are recruiting... I think he's a SSDE.
I'm terrible w names lol.
3-4 playmakers RB/WR
5 OL (M Jones, 1 more interior OL + 3 OTs. OTs can slide inside easier than guards can slide outside)
3 LB (1 could slide down to DL)
2 CB (Webb +1, CBs can often slide to safety)
1 K (agree with Moephius – “Gotta have one in this class”. Basil will be graduating. Very important position.
All of the above is somewhat subject to taking best available. If we can take 4 top 150 LBs, for instance, don’t think we would say no.
The OL position seems extreme in my list making up 25% of the class, but we are going to be desperate for numbers there unless someone on the DL moves over. Usually you would have to recruit at least 6 to replace 4 starters.
The 2013 class is heavy on D, my 2014 class by position is slightly heavier on O.
We will graduate 13 scholarship seniors next year, presumably Roby in addition and possibly Shazier as well. How many we take next year depends greatly on how many we finish with this year, but considering inevitable attrition I think 20 is a very good estimate.

in case you didn't know projecting and actually landing are 2 different things bud!
If we landed the guys you mentioned no doubt an A+
Zach Smith called, he doesn't like you!
