I wouldn't put too much stock in post draft "grades". They are often more wrong than the teams who actually use real scouts to evaluate talent. Richard Seymour had 1.5 sacks in his Sr year...I bet you would have hated that pick too. Here is a nice 'draft grade' from 2001 to look at with some time as perspective....This one by Nationally known NFL writer Ron Borges

NEW ENGLAND - You hate to fail anybody who shows up for class but
what are they doing? If you didn't know better, you'd think the Jets sent
Bill Belichick north to destroy the Patriots from within. On a day when they
could have had impact players David Terrell or Koren Robinson or the
second-best tackle in the draft in Kenyatta Walker, they took Georgia
defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who had 1 sacks last season in the
pass-happy SEC and is too tall to play tackle at 6-6 and too slow to play
defensive end. This genius move was followed by trading out of a spot where
they could have gotten the last decent receiver in Robert Ferguson and
settled for tackle Matt Light, who will not help any time soon unless last
year's draftees Adrian Klemm and Greg Robinson-Randle are busts.
