View Full Version : Want to see why early draft grades are stupid?

my favourite:

Cincinnati's first two picks--DE David Pollack and MLB Odell Thurman--will be stars on the Bengals' defense for a very long time. Central Michigan offensive linemen Eric Ghiaciuc and Adam Kieft are welcome additions to the Bengals' offensive line. Cincinnati chose WR Chris Henry in the third round. While Henry has some character issues, he is worth the risk in the third round.

other nice bits:
Yet another great draft class by Dennis Green. He chose CB Antrel Rolle, who might be the best defensive rookie this year. Joining Rolle in Arizona's secondary is CB Eric Green. Running back J.J. Arrington was a great selection in the second round, as were OLB Darryl Blackstock in the third, and G Elton Brown in the fourth. A very underrated player could be MLB Lance Mitchell, whom the Cardinals drafted in the fifth round.

Taking Mike Williams, the best player in the draft, was a great decision. All of the Lions' draft choices were great, especially DE/DT Shaun Cody in round two, CB Stanley Wilson in round three and Bill Swancutt in round six.

The only pick I did not agree with was the sixth-round selection of QB Derek Anderson. Why draft Anderson when you already have Anthony Wright and Josh Harris in reserve?

Cedric Benson will prove to be the best Chicago running back since Walter Payton. Wide receiver Mark Bradley was an excellent choice in the second round. Kyle Orton and wide receiver Airese Currie were great picks on day two.

Middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu, who was taken in the second round, was a fourth-round prospect at best.
