If you don't believe in the rankings, just look at the results of who left the team and where they were ranked..Red Flags are all gone..

Interesting stuff...

Fiammeta was a 6.9...they brought in Lawrence Vickers who is a 48.3 or a average player
Newman was an 11 but they signed Brandon Carr who is a 73.6 or NFL quality starter
Brooking was an 12 and James was a 24..in comes Dan Connor who was a 48 and another average player..

Some other rankings

Nate Livings was a miserable 27.3 with the Bengals last season
Mackenzy Bernadeau didn't get enough snaps but PFF had a projected rank of 84.6 in his limited 124 snaps..If that holds he could be the sleeper of the off season..
