Default Kirwan 2002 Draft Grade

http://www.nfl.com/draft/story/9428093

This story was pretty neat.

Ole Yankee Cowboy Pat graded Carr at a B

Philip Buchanon too B.

Not too shabby for Casserly. No Magna Cum Laude, but no failers

yeah no kidding. Especially so if he has all the information just handed to him. I wonder how many gophers he's got in his staff?

But as far as draft grades go, I believe he is right on target about how it's silly to grade a draft right after the draft. 2-4 years is about the time needed for any amount of accuracy to kick in.

he has some gems in there:

Quote:
There are some valuable lessons waiting if we care to open our eyes to some history rather than some fortune telling.
Quote:
The risk/reward of the first round is much more volatile than most draft observers care to remember.
Quote:
Giving a grade out to teams for how they drafted on the last weekend of April is close to absurd at this point. It is meaningless, and there's no reason to praise some teams and criticize others.
Quote:
Back when this draft was completed, people said it was a strong draft for receivers, quarterbacks and cornerbacks. I wonder what those people think today?
