Your opinion is no more impressive any his.

B
Considered giving an A for refraining from giving up next year's first.

In all honesty I thought we would draft at least one prospect on the O-line for potential depth and hoped we would have gotten a solid DT, but getting value picks like Clausen and Norwood brings the grade up.

If it pans out we could have some incredible players.


Thats the thing isn't it. Fox and Hurney did a great job of mixing solid picks with high risk flyers on some players with great athleticism. We drafted a group of guys that have addressed the two areas of most need. Backups and potential starters in the case of injury at quarterback to a successor to Moose and a quick downfield playmaker at wide receiver.

And the best part is that by building redundancy at the wide receiver and quarterback position, he is bound to hit on at least one quarterback and wide receiver who could be a franchise player for us. We could have a couple of busts and still end up with a great draft.

If you count that tyler was acquired with this year's fifth and Louis was acquired with our 6th, we really did use this draft to address the DT position.

Solid B

Hate Clausen as a person, Moore needed competition, just wish we'd grabbed someone else. Like somebody else said, he's our douche now. Wish he didn't look like one of the Icey Hot Stuntaz. Big value pick, could pay off huge.

Brandon LaFell was once a 1st round prospect, doesn't jump out, has issues with drops but had pretty good production. Hopefully more Moose than Jarrett.

Edwards I love, just wish we hadn't needed to give up a second to get him. Will need a little time, huge potential payoff.

Love Norwood.

Like the Hardy pick, value pick in the 6th. Great measurables.

Pike was another value pick, can't really argue it in the 6th round.

Don't know enough about the others.

Thats every draft..lol


No, these are almost all high risk/high reward players on the top side of our draft (Norwood being the only "safe" pick).

Guys like Clausen, Edwards, Lafell and Hardy are either going to be valuable starters in a few years or off the team. There isn't as much middle ground.

C just because I hoped they would draft an upper level DL player.

Definitely in the B range. I actually think it compliments last year's draft.

C+

Addressed QB and WR, BUT the trade for Edwards was not smart and the umpteen defensive backs was totally unnecessary; STs people or not. The trench guys were largely ignored.

id give it a B+ but since it wasnt a option I put A.

All the prospects we grabbed were all very talented and can play football.

can they do it at this level we'll see.

i say B+. we managed to adress most of our needs, even thought we didnt have a 1st rounder. we got some good talent in the later rounds, and may have gotten a franchise QB by luck. also, i guess we reached in the trade for edwards, but, if we had waited to pick him in the 4th, we would have missed out on either norwood or hardy, who are both steals in my opinion.

i think hurney aced it again...
