Football - Grading Offensive Lineman

There's a common "grading" system for Offensive Lineman that takes into account blocking success, etc. Sure would be nice to know how our lineman grade out. Check out this comment on Miami's Eric Winston and his latest game:

The Atlantic Coast Conference named left tackle Eric Winston and kick returner Devin Hester Players of the Week. Winston graded the highest among UM's offensive linemen in the Hurricanes' 52-7 win over Duke, helping the Canes gain 557 total yards. Winston had three pancake blocks and five ''metrorails'' -- plays in which he stayed with his man until the end. He did not allow any sacks or quarterback pressures.

Sure would be interesting to know how our guys grade out. Of course we might not like what we see, but who knows. Anyone know how that grading system works?
