I am going to give it a big A. I like the big O-linemen we picked up for goaline situations and rotation, I think rotation on O-line is important in this era due to defensive rotations used much more than years past. The O-line needs rest to keep up with the energy, our smaller o-line actually seems to have good stamina compared to other teams that draft big hogs, but a few hogs for short yard situations is needed on this team. I have no clue about receivers and am just hoping they hit this time on at least one of them. I like half of y'all wanted a offensive play maker in the first but have warmed to the overall selections of the team............., can't wait for preseason to start, and hoping we can get past New England.
Ben Jones, Center, Georgia
Very important skill set for position. Must be a leader, Captain of the OL.

I will give it a grade in 3 years, when we actually have facts to back up the grade.

On nos! I made a mistake, funny thing is I admitted it in the same thread. How horrible of me to forgett that our last pick was in the 6th round and not the 7th. I guess in your mind that negates any and everything else I have to say?

I cannot express the irony that you accussing me of dumping on people when you nearly lost yor mind dumping on Posey, Rick Smith, Kubiak, etc.

I've said a million ****ing times, and I guess I need to say it again. I get it that people like scouting, the draft and all that. My point of all last weekend was those that assume they know more than the NFL scouts are dillusional. LZ pointed out quite well how little information draftniks have compred to NFL teams. That info ranges from all-22 film to volume sof personel info. So when somebody throws one of the biggest wall-eyed fits in the history of the board over the Posey pick, I will call you on it. And by the way, that's talking football.

And once again, guess it's dump time; but I do not and will never understand the purpose of draft grades the Monday after the draft. I understand it even less when it is a proves fact that historically draft grades are one of the most inaccurate media inventions.

The problem is thinking that a draft grade really reflects how good or bad a team performed during the draft. As long as you keep it in perspective, there's nothing wrong with it.

I feel good about this draft. They didn't draft some guys I expected but I've got no problems with what they drafted or who they drafted. I think we've got at least 2 guys that are going to be starters.

I think we're going to see some changes in our line. I don't think Caldwell ends up as a starter and I think Wade Smith might have lost his job, too.

I think our WR corps just got totally revamped with AJ the only one that keeps his job. I think we're also going to start to get some production from our UDFA WRs from last year.

I grade this a B+ draft.
After a couple of years, the jury is still out. Some guys could still step up and turn this into a pretty good haul.

To this point, I'd give it a C or a C-.

Mercilus has been playing but he hasn't been very productive. Devier Posey, again, still has some potential but was probably a big, huge mistake as was K-Mart.

OTOH, Brandon Brooks was a pretty good pick. Ben Jones and Jared Crick were OK. I expected more out of Crick.

And then there's Bullock. smh

Still early.

Mercy.
Posey.
brooks.
Jones.
Kmart.
Crick.
Bulloch.
Mondek.

I see brooks as a possible above average guard in a year or two. Ive seen flashes from Posey I liked. Average starter potential in jones and maybe crick down the line. Im still not ready to give up on mercy. Still early but clearly no hall of farmers here. Id give it a c+ to a b- because we still may get 3-4 starters out of this draft.

Day 1: F
Didn't address primary need at quarterback position. Now the top three quarterbacks are gone. If they don't take a quarterback this year then use the #2 on the top running back in the draft. We have got to add some weapons to this pitiful offense of ours.

Day 1: D

Did not get the trade down from the #1 pick, because we have ridiculous fantasies about how much that pick is worth when we didn't even really want anybody there. Did not get any one of the top 3 QBs out of this draft. Watched while Cleveland showed guts and took some risk, followed by more watching while Minnesota traded up to #32 and RAPED us. If we weren't going to take a chance on Manziel, and Bortles was long gone, we NEEDED Bridgewater...

Cannot give them an F when everybody wanted Clowney. Might've even been the right choice, but I don't like it for several reasons, and am now already waiting on the 2015 QB draft class....which will probably suck too for all I know.

Let`s just start a new thread when the draft is finished... kinda easier to follow then. Plus I think it actually is interesting, if people want to change their vote after a couple of years.

Id give the 2012 years draft a B-, and that`s only because Im an optimist. You could argue, that no pick really worked out (still hopefull on Brooks, Jones, Mercilus and at least one of the WRs though).
