https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/football-insider/wp/2016/03/02/scot-mccloughan-will-be-cautious-with-the-rise-in-underclassmen/

The additional underclassmen will add depth in the later rounds, particularly at certain positions of need for the Washington Redskins, but general manager Scot McCloughan will be cautious with some of the non-seniors.

“That plays into it, too, but that’s scary,” McCloughan said of the rise in underclassmen at the NFL Combine last week. “That’s why it’s so important to be here and get measurables, get the medical, get the interview stuff with the juniors, the underclassmen. But it’s a strong draft, very strong.”

McCloughan wasn’t sure if the number of underclassmen was a positive or negative, but he only selected one underclassman last year with his 10 picks – running back Matt Jones in the third round.

“From my standpoint, we’re going to scout them this year, we’re going to scout them next year,” McCloughan said. “Either way it’s the same. But if a guy’s an even junior or redshirt sophomore and a senior, I’d take the senior, a guy that fulfilled his commitment. But still, it’s understandable these underclassmen are really talented guys.”

I agree with him. I like Seniors more because they have more experience and a longer track record of production. When drafting a Junior, I would rather see someone who has at least 2 years of starts AND whose play jumps out at you.

Talent trumps all but preferably you'd like to have the more experienced player with more tape to review.
