Solid B with a chance to turn into an A+, or a D, or a C, C-,C+, B+. B -, D+, or F depending on how everyone we drafted pans out. Lol.

This is how I feel

Today I think the draft was pretty damn good. In two years we'll have a better indication. Tough to not be excited about the possibilities though, and the direction we seem to be heading.

Q - do you think they didn't get a trade back into the 1st because a) they got no interest or b) they weren't prepared to pay the price? I think it's b) and if I'm right I have more respect for the new staff as a result.
I think Keim has reported that it seems they were not willing to pay the price that was being asked to move up in the draft.

Re: Post draft wrap/grades

Iím sure a lot of teams wanted to get back into the first round, the draft was pretty top heavy with the first 50-60 picks. Trading up was going to come at a premium.

Re: Post draft wrap/grades

Saban said that the best pound for pound player was the kid from Michigan. That's high praise coming from someone like him. Then you add in Daniels, the d tackle, o-linemen and the TE. I think they did an outstanding job. You had to get a pure TE and they got one. Dude is an athlete. No more John Bates or the skinny kid that can't block. Outstanding draft on paper. A-.

I was hoping they would grab Trotter's kid. Can not believe he lasted until the 5th round. That is nuts.

He must have had an awful combine. He was going 1st or 2nd round in most mocks i saw/did for months. I was shocked too.

Re: Post draft wrap/grades

I voted a grade of B which would have been a B+ if I had the option. Getting JD and Johnny Newton represent most of the value to me because I think both of them will be stars in the NFL.

Adam Peters says Brandon Coleman can play tackle in the NFL, and @dpbrugler agrees: "Brandon Coleman was one of my favorite picks...I think he was a little bit of a discount because he was banged up...To get him in the 3rd round is good value."

Sure hope Peters is correct on this one. Would have loved to have gotten more olinemen in the draft. It would be a home run if Coleman could end up a good starting tackle for us. A lot of intrigue around this pick and how the unit needs help.

Ben Standig at The Atlantic posted a chart on the Relative Athletic Score for Coleman and it's nearly identical to that of Trent Williams. They are the same height and weight, Trent did better in the 40 (4.8 vs. 4.9 but a LT running 40 yards...eh), their 20 and 10 yard splits, vertical and broad jump and shuttle were nearly identical with Coleman doing better in the 3 cone (7.4 vs 7.6). Obviously a tall bar, but if he can approach that level of play, outstanding.

The more I read about this guy, the more I like the pick. Hope he pans out.
