Default the only draft to grade accurately right now:

the 2007 draft: its been 3 yearsso this is the one to truly grade. tomlins first draft. ( sorry if already posted)

Round One -B - Lawrence Timmons - jury still out some. IMO he is so close to really breaking out to be a pro bowler

Round Two - A - LaMarr Woodley - slam dunk pick

3rd Round - B - Matt Spaeth - above avg TE - would be a starter if we didnt already have one of the best TE's in the league

4th Round - B - Daniel Sepulveda - above avg but should be great for his draft positon. give him a mulligan so far because of the bad injury

4th round - Ryan McBean - F - nope

5th Round - Cam Stephenson - F - nope

5th Round - William Gay - C - a letdown last year but is a 5th rounder

Round Seven - Dallas Baker - F - nope

IMO overall a B
4 starters and 1 with PT

McBean may be a let down for us but I believe he started for the Broncos last season.

yeah just based on us but was also curious so just looked at his stats last year - played in 14 games, 18 total tackles, 7 assists and no INT's or sacks. not much there.

And as I said in another post... with all the problems this team has had with punting. . .

Sep should probably grade as .75

So that's 4.25 starters!

technically he is a starter as he doesnt share his position w/ anyone else (such as a long snapper) so lets call it a 4.5 out of 8.

most teams would love that success rate!

Default Re: the only draft to grade accuratley right now:

I'd say a C. One ace-in-the-hole (Lamaar Woodley), one good, but somewhat inconsistent player who keeps improving (Lawrence Timmons), a mediocre starter (William Gay), a mediocre backup (Matt Spaeth), a decent special teamer (Sepulveda), 3 who havent done jack for us.


So that's....

Great: 1 (Woodley)
Good: 1 (Timmons)
Ok: 1 (Sepulveda)
Mediocre: (Spaeth and Gay)
Awful and Irrelevant: (McBean, Stephenson, Baker)

Giving it a B is too generous. That would probably be like saying you'd be ok with it if all of our drafts turned out like the one in '07.

Dallas Baker is now playing in the Arena Football League. Gotta bring in the checks (albeit small ones now) somehow I guess. I'll give it a B just because of Woodley. lol.
