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.

This entire draft has had Rick Smith's fingerprints all over it, but this.......

This pick has Kubiak written all over it.

The guys below get it. Furthermore, it's a 6th, so its not going to affect my actual total grade.

How do you take Alan Bonner in the 6th when DaRick Rogers and Cobi Hamilton are still available? He might turn out great, only time will tell, but for now this pick sucks when you realize what was available to you.

The thing is, though, that you're basing your opinion on the opinions of Draftniks who DON'T currently work as professional scouts and don't really have access to the same resources as a professional scouting department. The Texans' scouts saw something in this guy they liked and they saw things they DIDN'T like in the guys who are still available.

This guy could be THE sleeper. Or he could be out of the league after training camp.

Like you said, this is why it takes a few years to really be able to judge a draft.

This draft has been a real black eye for the internet scouts/draftniks. Look no farther than Rodgers and the slide of the QB's who were projected 1st 2nd rounders.

Yep it's name recognition .

I think the trick is finding guys who have the mentality to adjust and develop .
