And even if we did we wouldn't have nearly as much insight as our worst scout.

Re: Grade Our Draft!

Looks like we went from "small school sleepers" to "injury sleepers".

Three of these guys would have been drafted earlier if not for injuries.

Perhaps they know a bit more than us about these players? Perhaps they even have put in more study on these players than others in the business.

I will honestly give my grade on the draft when it REALLY matters ... two or three years from now.

Once again, I repeat, grading now is only comparing what one of us thinks they know against someone who actually knows far more.

Re: Grade Our Draft!

Only pick we missed on was no O-line depth. Or for that matter no Center. It would be nice to have brought one in for competition at least.

Overall B-, C++

To be fair, I grade the draft on what others that I respect and admire think of our picks.

If certain people I respect like our picks and give reasons, I'm on board, and conversely if they give a thumbs down with reasons, I listen.

I refuse to act like I'm some kind of college football expert like so many people on football forums do. If you were so damn good at evaluating college talent you'd be doing it for a living.

My praise/criticism is based on scouting reports I read and see from my favorite experts. I'm sure I'm no the only one.
