Default My Thoughts on our Draft (Terrible)

Only Joking :D Here are my thoughts and grades "Thoughts and Grades" <--- *Link* (It took ages -_-)

I can't wait to see Le'veon Bell in action, I loved his play in College with a lackluster O-line and no passing game. If DeCastro and Co. stay fit I think he could have a monster season if we trade Dwyer/He gets the main role. Of course we will never know until the season starts

Please give me suggestions on the blog, I'm a passionate fan (You have to be if you live in the U.K) and this is my first attempt at writing about American Football so constructive criticism please.

Also please post your own grades below and if you don't mind doing so in the comments section on the blog

P.S - Thank you for the kind words

Why is Dwyer on the trading block? He is the perfect back up running back with Redman being the 3rd down back.

I'm not saying he should goes, I'm just saying that if the Steelers do decide to move him or another of their Running Back's on then He is more than an apt replacement.

Good write-up. I enjoy reading the "grades" type of reviews on the draft.

I agree with you on Bell. I think (along with many others) that he was the best RB available in the draft). Better than Lacy. I've disagreed with almost all of the criticism thrown his way. The dude is, like you said, a beast - albeit a "graceful" beast.

The one grade i would debate about is the Landry Jones pick. Jones is another one that i think will prove the naysayers wrong. Even Bill Polian thought he was the best QB in this draft, and not only that, he's a perfect match for our team/system. He's going to be much better than some people thought.

Also - i agree with your B grade on Wheaton, although a case could be made for a B+ or an A-. I would go B+, he was another absolute steal and should be a very good one, if not better.
