Talent wasn't the issue for these two position groups, but opportunities and situations were consistent limits. Grades are based on a 1-to-5 scale, with '5' marking excellence, '4' for above-average, '3' for average, '2' for below-average and '1' for failure to perform. Players that did not accrue a season (weren't on the active roster...
