    This kid could be the next Lawrence Taylor if we were living in a parallel universe in which Lawrence Taylor was a wide receiver who isn’t going to amount to anything. Grade: F

    Real nice.

    Everybody’s criticizing the choice of Moreno here. Perhaps the Broncos should have drafted someone the experts were higher on, like Vince Young or Reggie Bush. Grade: D

    24 DT Peria Jerry Miss Sr.
    Jerry is a tough, passionate warrior who will immediately upgrade the Falcons front seven. But he’s not Mark Sanchez, so **** him. Grade: F minus minus


    12 RB Knowshon Moreno Georgia Sr.

    These two crack me up.

    Think thats bad? Check this one out:

    http://mvn.com/outsider/2009/04/grading-the-2009-nfl-draft-by-process-points.html

    This guy grades by what he calls Process Points. But some of the comments are just ridiculous...

    Does this guy watch football?

    This guy has tremendous upside potential and a great motor. Those kinds of things don’t show up on a stat sheet because they’re totally meaningless. Grade: F minus



    Best one.

    Yeah, I know. Just didnt want to start a new thread for it. And it was so ridiculous, you would think it belongs with the Brushback ones.

    I figured with all the "experts" giving their grades long before these guys even play a down, we could use a little humor.

    all in all, imo this list has as good a chance at being accurate as the rest.

    Maybe what he meant is that Demecos production has dropped off since his rookie year, which I guess is true. Whether that is because of injury, improved overall defense, or his own regression is up for grabs.

    I dont know how anyone could call him inconsistent, though..

    Those are so funny.

    #3 - Kansas City Chiefs - DE Tyson Jackson LSU Sr.
    A lot of people said this was a reach, but Jackson could end up being the best player in the draft if several other top players suffer career ending injuries. Grade: F


    #7 - Oakland Raiders - Darrius Heyward-Bey Maryland Sr.
    This surprise selection was actually intended as a smokescreen until the Raiders realized you had to keep whatever players you selected. Grade: F


    #11 - Buffalo Bills - DE Aaron Maybin Penn State So.
    The Bills really wanted Chris Long here but he was taken in the 2008 draft. Grade: F

    Or that we may opt to play Xavier Adibi over him?

    my fav:

    7 Oakland - WR - Darrius Heyward-Bey
    This surprise selection was actually intended as a smokescreen until the Raiders realized you had to keep whatever players you selected. Grade: F

    26 Green Bay - OLB - Clay Matthews
    This is an interesting pick, especially since he was already taken at number 15 by the Texans. Grade: F
