no, it's only good because there is a lot of talent in this class, but nothing at the top that really distinuishes itself.
again, you are basing this class being good or not for probably the exact same reason...the lack of upper tier/elite talent at the front of the draft....which we wouldn't be taking anyway because of where we sit.
as a whole thru the first few rounds this class is strong and full of solid players who will be productive starters with their teams. this class just doesn't have those 8 or so elite players people like to see that are head and shoulders above everyone else, although i don't think that the guys at the front are even much below the top talent in other drafts, it's that they just aren't that much better than the rest of the guys coming after them.
i think the thing that many complaining about this draft are having a problem with is that there are no QBs that excite anyone and that usually is the thing that hypes a draft up.
The lack of those elite players make all the difference. The reason they make the difference is because we have all this second round talent going in the first round so they have to be hyped up like they are near-elite when in fact they are not. I agree that the second/third round of this year is deep but thats only because the the "true" second rounders are going in the first round.
