Default Draft Grades

Give this draft your grade.

I'll give them a B. I love Mendenhall and Sweed and really like Hills, Dixon, and Mundy. Humpal and Davis could improve the ST and add depth behind our very talented OLBs.

I think 6 of the 7 picks makes the opening day roster.

I'm gonna say B.

The first two were outstanding. The second 2, not bad, the 5th AWFUL!, 6 OK, 7 good.

I say the only one who does not stick, or at least is on some sort of IR or practice squad is Dixon.

Default Re: Draft Grades

if you asked me before the draft what it would take to land possibly the best (or atleast top 2) wr and rb in the draft, i woulda said trading away our 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th round picks and possibly one from next year.

everything beyond #1, and #2 is just gravy.

hines ward is gonna open up some nice cap room in the not too distant future.

B+

Dixon will be the third strong quarterback when the season opens.

Dixon was not a wasted pick.
