Draft Grades

In case anyone is interested......

ESPN.com: SPORTSNATION - Consensus NFL Draft Grades

Washington Redskins have the lowest rated draft.

Re: Draft Grades

Well you knew that was going to happen given the number of picks. Mel Kiper is probably closer to the point with a C-. Can't say that the Redskins had a great draft, but they made the right pick at #6 (esp. given JLC's commentary that they feel DE is a bigger need than DT, and Jamaal Anderson was definitely not worth the #6 - or #8 - pick IMO). These grades are always pretty worthless anyway, just go check out some ones from past years.

Re: Draft Grades

i don't really care what anyone has to say. We did what we could with the amount of picks that we had. I am happy with most of our selections, especially dallas and landry. Next year we have all our picks and will be able to have a full draft.

Re: Draft Grades

Kinda funny how Miami got an 'A+' from sportingnews.com and an 'F' from espn.com. Lets you know that maybe there is a bit of subjectivity to the process...

Re: Draft Grades

Kiper's grades seemed to be pretty forgiving. Given that the lowest grade he gave out was a C-, the same score that we received, I'd say our draft was a pretty unsuccessful

Re: Draft Grades

These grades are correct. The Redskins blew it. An average grade of 1.2 (D) is right. Actually I would have given them an F. An F for failure to acquire anyone in a position of need. Not one single defensive or offensive lineman. Horrible draft. Landry better be a pro bowler. If Jamaal Anderson ends up being a pro bowler, this draft will look even worse.

I thought we had a good draft. Anderson has the size but he only had one good year. Landry started 4 years in a row at LSU. That alone is very impressive. And Blades was a tackling machine at Pitt. Both of these guys know how to tackle. And this is where we really sucked last year. Bringing down the guy with the ball. And of course rushing the passer.

But what this draft tells me is GW and Blache think we can get by with our d-line. Let's hope and prey they are right.

Re: Draft Grades

Landry didn't fill a need??

I guess you can say that if you think Prioleau or Fox are capable 16 game starters.

And considering our lack of depth at LB, I think Blades and Sartz filled needs as well.

Re: Draft Grades

Charley Casserly gives a sober and insightful look at the draft choices each team made, and ridicules the idea of draft grades the day after the draft. Also, he mades an interesting study of the success of draft choices by round over a ten year period...

Re: Draft Grades

I need to borrow whatever crystal ball it is that those Analysts use to decide who had the best draft before anyone ever stepped on the field. I like the stock market and it would come in handy.

Oh mighty powerfull analyst, will I ever be rich? The sad thing is that people actually pay these guys.
