Can't vote. Hardly anything on YouTube. I knew we'd go WR...

I am scratching my head over this one. But hey, it's the 6th round. This is where you're supposed to scratch your head.

I don't know jack about this guy, so I am going F. Looks like a UDFA, dime a dozen type guy.

Lackluster stats at a FCS program, lackluster workout numbers.

You don't know him so you give him an F? At least give him an incomplete.

It's a 6th rounder it's not that big of a deal. Probably a favorite of one of the scouts.

You're grading the pick, not the player. The player could turn out to be the next Jerry Rice, for all we know. And an F in the 6th round weights the overall draft grade very little.

Actually after listening to the link Vinny posted he caught GK's eye at the combine. Said there wasn't a ball thrown that he couldn't/didn't catch. He was very impressed. Just an FYI.

Default Re: Draft Grades Round 6/2 Alan Bonner

I do have a problem saying this pick is an "F" just because I haven't heard of him. Before they were drafted I knew nothing about Glover Quin or Brice Mccain. They turned out to be good players in the NFL. Scouts spend way more time evaluating players than we do. They have researched Bonner, they have watched tape on Bonner, etc.. Labeling the pick an "F" because you haven't is silly.

Grade A-

Here I went against the grain.
This is a sixth round pick so I found it hard to believe that he received such low grade.
Bonner looks like a pretty good or at least decent receiver for the fifth spot.
The Texans may stash on PS or IR him, whatever the case, but IMO, he looks like a guy who can contribute (not in any major fashion, but then again, what can we expect from a low sixth rounder?)

I actually like his upside.
