The best drafts are both value and need: A

The worst drafts are all need:C

We are maybe a B / B+ I'd say.

Great value but only a few areas of need. Chips just fall that way sometimes.

But what value gives you are good players long term.

Kiper just said on ESPN:

 

Tampa Bay B+

Atlanta B-

New Orleans C+

Carolina C

 


 


 

That said, giving them a "C" for value is kind of hilarious. Let's take into account that Kiper is likely basing this off his Top 100 rankings, because that's how he evaluates "value." Now let's look at two teams who took two players in his rankings.

Carolina Panthers: Kelvin Benjamin, 28th overall (Kiper rated 27th overall), Kony Ealy, 60th overall (Kiper rated 43rd overall). Two round value of +18.

Dallas Cowboys: Zack Martin, 10th overall (Kiper rated 10th overall), Demarcus Lawrence, 34th overall (Kiper rated 49th overall). Two round value of -15.

The Cowboys were given a "B" grade for value.

I didn't know Kiper was a Panther fan. He must value need over value.

Depends if you want to look at immediate or long term impact.....

Not sure those guys will have much impact in 2014


We didn't think Star, Short, Klein, Lester and White would make an immediate impact either last year. We'll see what unfolds later this year.

I pay little to no attention to what these draft "analysts" say about our picks. Fans are going to be overly emotional so that's to be expected. Our GM and our staff feel like we had a good draft, so I'm fine with that. Assigning grades is ultimately pointless until these guys play anyways.

No, you're not dumb. Fans are always going to be split on their respective drafts.

Sure, it didn't worked out as we envisioned but we got a Fitzgerald/Marshall type of weapon for Cam, leverage against Johnson and Hardy and a mauler and potential stud at the OL.

One talking head says we did great. Another says we screwed up. Just goes to show that 'post draft, pre play' evaluation is just another guessing game.
