This is another point I disputed earlier in the thread. It's seems like a silly way to do things, since you're limiting yourself to something other than the 'standard' (league average).
If the draft class included a bunch of enormous freaks at defensive tackle who pushed the average weight up to 330lbs, would you downgrade a guy for weighing only 315lbs and say he's undersized? If the cornerback class included a ridiculous amount of track athletes who pushed the 40-yard dash average down to 4.35, would you downgrade a guy for running a 4.45 and call him slow?
