NFL teams don't go off of websites like that. If they did, any random person with a working internet could run a team's draft.

Re: Grade Our Draft!

I grade the draft a B only because with the last pick, the OT isn't considered to be a really good fit. He's too small to play swing tackle and I don't know if he's strong enough to play OG. The others are capable of playing where needed.

I VOTED B. We addressed all necessary areas with overkill in some. We only have a center/OG to pickup and we might get that from an undrafted FA or Veteran FA all of those players that were drafted will make at least the PS and Cooks, Jean-Baptiste and the LB from Cal will make the 53 man roster and maybe the OT too.

That might have been an improvement this year. On some things Payton and Loomis are head of the class. Salary cap and late round picks have been their specialty. However at first glance this years draft is a real head scrathcher. Who knows, maybe they hit a homerun, but if they did they disguised it very well.

yeah well that must have happened to the Saints... as pointed out the Saintsations must have been running the draft at that point.

C

no center. No dt.

didn't think that there was a great deal of talent out there to begin with.

Re: Grade Our Draft!

I gave it a B. I think the Cooks move was spectacular and SJP was darned good too. The rest of the picks, we'll just have to wait and see how they pan out. I'm happy in that I don't think we reached for anyone.

Re: Grade Our Draft!

B or B-, love the Cooks pick up and I like the LBs we got. I don't know if you can really consider anyone taken at the end of the 6th a reach, but I'm not sure about Rooks/ I really would have liked to land Deandre Coleman.
