The UCLA Bruins are 2-2, and have left many people impressed with their overall play so far this season. Color me as one of those people left impressed, especially with their defensive unit so far.

I wanted to take a look at some of the ‘grades’ for the Bruins through four weeks, and thankfully, PFF has us covered with those grades. The caveat being, however, that not all grades are created equally, and this shouldn’t necessarily be an end-all discussion point for how well the Bruins as a team and individually have played.

Rather, let this be a starting point for the discussion on who has played well, and maybe on the flip side, who hasn’t. I have my qualms and thoughts on the matter of the PFF grades, but they do have some use.

Here are the five highest-graded players on offense and on defense for UCLA this season, as well as the lowest-graded on each side of the ball,

Offense

Highest-Graded Players (min. 120 snaps):

T Sean Rhyan — 78.0 overall (4th among 16 Pac-12 tackles)

RB Demetric Felton — 77.7 overall (5th among Pac-12 RBs)

T Alec Anderson — 77.4 overall (7th among 16 Pac-12 tackles)

TE Greg Dulcich — 76.8 overall (2nd among Pac-12 TEs)

QB Chase Griffin — 71.5 overall (4th among 12 Pac-12 QBs)

Lowest-Graded Players:

C Sam Marrazzo — 58.0 overall (10th among 10 qualifying centers in the Pac-12)

WR Chase Cota — 55.4 overall (36th among 39 Pac-12 WRs)

QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson — 54.9 overall (11th among 12 Pac-12 QBs)
