Re: Draft grades

Man, I think weíve done well for the second consecutive draft. To be honest...Dallas, giants and eagle did well too. I thought Dallas did really well. The east gonna be extremely competitive next year. If we can stay healthy we will compete.

Re: Draft grades

I voted A.
Would have put A- if it was available because of not finding a G nor a C.
But really I wasn't expecting that much, the deal in the 2nd round was a win in itself, and picking Guice and a promising OT out of it was just great.

The sports illustrated article says Geron Christian could play G, but nobody else says so and Gruden said he was here to be a swing tackle.

I'm really curious to see what Sean Welsh and Ty McCulley can bring to the table. We need somebody better than Kouandjio at LG, Arie can do the job in pass protection but not in the run game.

On the draft cast podcast from 980 am, Morgan Moses was being interviewed by Fred Smoot and Clinton Portis. Moses said he fully expected Ty Nseke to get a lot of work at guard in camp.

He went on to say, Ty couldn't be expected to make the move to guard in season, from a Friday to a Sunday, but gave the impression he would be trying the position in the off season.

I think this is the first person with any credibility say Ty was going to be tried at guard.

Re: Draft grades

Forgot to mention Tim Settle in there... Between him, Payne, Allen and Ioannidis, our main weakness on defense could become our main strength!

Good to read this. Gruden was saying the same.

So we'll have some competition there.

Re: Draft grades

I posted a whole reason why I gave the draft a B+. Server busy message deleted it. So I'll just say B+.

Re: Draft grades

I saw this video a few days after the combine, I didn't realize until now this is the guy we drafted, that was a lot of fun...

Deion Sanders can't believe Troy Apke runs a 4.35

... and a lot of speed!

Re: Draft grades

Payne, Guide, Settle, Hamilton, Quinn were great picks. Hamilton would have gone higher if it wasnít for injuries.

Re: Draft grades

If we had gotten edmunds or James in the first, it would be an A+. But i think we more than made up for it getting Guice at the bottom of the 2nd and Settle in the 5th... not to mention trading up for Hamilton in the 6th. This is the most excited Iíve been about a draft class in a long long time.

Re: Draft grades

I'm giving the Skins a fucking A. It's been a while since I could say we hit it out the park but that's exactly what this FO did this draft. That was marvelous trading down in the 2nd to pick a guy up that many fans wanted at the #15 spot. It was great value and a hell of a ballsy move. We also added that extra third rounder we lost in the Alex Smith trade so it's like we got Alex Smith for free. Loved our 1st pick in Dayne and by far something we needed desparately. More OL in the 3rd was just gravy and hopefully they can fill that LG spot for a while.

From what I gather, I think 5 teams failed James knee and we were one of those five teams. Besides, this game is won on the front line. A good safety isn't going to be what we need to stop the run consistently.

Quinn might be a rare gem steal in the 7th. I gave them a B in the draft poll, but then I always do. One can't really grade a draft til at least two years after and see how the guys pan out. I liked our draft 2 years ago and gave it a A, but now it looks like a C at best since some of then aren't even on the team anymore.
