Recently, a pair of film-based evaluations of wide receiver prospects Laquon Treadwell and Sterling Shepard caught my eye. ProFootballFocus and NFL.com’s Matt Harmon both seem to agree that Shepard is great while they seem to disagree drastically on Treadwell. This reminded me of a question I asked myself last year regarding Kevin White and Breshad Perriman. It also seems to confirm one of my biggest concerns about film-based scouting, even film-based methods that aim to be as objective as possible like the ones PFF and Harmon use.
