They are two different exercises. I graded each player and at the top of the post, I gave a A+ smiley face star for the whole draft.
Both of the exercises are silly.
Draft grades are a fiction depending on so much stuff that hasn't happened and isn't a fixed future.
Charles Spencer may have been an awesome left tackle if he didn't get Ron Dayned.
Was that a bad pick because of a fluke injury?
You make your picks, and hope for the best. Putting letter grades on drafts is sort of silly but is great if you crave affirmation or get grumbly from what outsiders say.
For me, I really do like trying to figure out reasoning/fit but ultimately want these guys to have a clean start, removed from where they were drafted and how much or little money they make, and just assess them based on what they do as a Houston Texan.
