Grading the defensive talent in 2004?

I was wondering how everyone would grade the talent we had on defense in 2004? I gave everyone a grade from 'A' to 'F'. I based my grades on the overall talent of the player AND their performance from last year.

Are my grades off?

Starting Defense in 2004:
LDE 94 Grant, Charles - B
DT 95 Green, Howard - D
DT 66 Young, Brian - D
RDE 93 Howard, Darren - B
SLB 50 Allen, James - D
MLB 55 Watson, Courtney - D
WLB 57 Bockwoldt, Colby - C
LCB 34 McKenzie, Mike - B
SS 20 Bellamy, Jay - D
FS 34 Jones, Tebucky - D
RCB 35 Brown, Fahkir - C

Hmmm...
Grant - A- (78 tackles and 7.5 sacks - damn!)
Young - C+ (Plays like he is smaller than he is, but what a motor)
Sullivan - F (F... for Flop)
Howard - B (11 sacks and he missed at least 3 games)
Allen - D (Has played 5 good games in three years, little starting experience)
Watson - C+ (Solid tackler, learning, good size and speed)
Bockwoldt - NA (four games isn\'t enough to evaluate)
McKenzie - A (this guys is the shiznit)
Bellamy - B- (solid tackler, knowledgeable, getting old)
Jones - C (learned to tackle, took away the deep ball)
Brown - C- (serviceable #2, learning, good size)

"... I was beating them with my eyes the whole game..." - Aaron Brooks :cool:

bockwoldt can play. i know he only played 4 games but he played the same way those 4 games as he did in preseason. i could 100% be wrong but if we let this guy go i really believe he will be a nice lb for someone else. i like the kid. he can just play

I thik colby should get a shot..better than rogers..I also would like to move watson to SLB..GUmbo..your being too harsh on him..

I think that a linebacking core of watson and coby outside and a strong MLB would do wonders for our core...but if we kept watson at MLB and got a SLB in the draft say blackstock.

question is how good are:

1. allen
2. rogers
3. watson
4. colby

and what do we need more a:
1. mlb
2. slb
