The 49ers had two first-round picks and nailed both of them. Pro Bowl middle linebacker Patrick Willis came with the 11th pick, while tackle Joe Staley came with the 28th pick. Both have been starters since their rookie season. Third-round picks Jason Hill and Ray McDonald are both backups. Fourth-round safety Dashon Goldson started 16 games last season at safety, giving him great value as a second-day pick. Corner Tarell Brown, a fifth-round pick, started four games last season.

Grade: A

Niners, Jets and Ravens are the only A's
1 future HOFer
1 starting LT
1 starting FS
and several backups that are still on the team.

A+

agree, I think this was the key draft which turned this franchise around.

Hopefully this draft will push us over the top and into a perennial playoff team.

This is the JaMarcus Russell draft. Therefore, it is a disaster. The Raiders had the first overall pick and took Russell. He has been a big flop and they will release him shortly. He never gave himself to the game, and it showed. Second-round pick Zack Miller, a tight end, has been a good starter. With a better quarterback, he'd show more. Third-round pick, tackle Mario Henderson, started 16 games last season, but the Raiders would love to replace him. Johnnie Lee Higgins, another third-round pick, has been a backup receiver and a decent return man. Fourth-round running back Michael Bush has flashed at times as a backup. Fifth-round pick Jay Richardson is a nice backup defensive end. But blowing the Russell pick makes this a really bad draft.

Grade: F

And rightly so . . .

This was the draft that helped the Giants win the Super Bowl in 2007. All the draft picks made the team and all eight are still with the team. It was a big hit for general manager Jerry Reese. Top pick Aaron Ross, a corner from Texas, missed most of last season with injuries, but he's a good corner when healthy. Second-round receiver Steve Smith went to the Pro Bowl last season when he led the league in catches. Fifth-round tight end Kevin Boss is a starter and a real steal of this group. Seventh-round safety Michael Johnson has started 30 games the past two seasons, but he will be challenged for his job this season. The Giants also got defensive tackle Jay Alford and running back Ahmad Bradshaw, two quality backups, in this draft. Bradshaw was another seventh-round pick.

Grade A

Great draft !

Prisco's kind of a dumbass -- he said after the draft last year that DHB is a better WR prospect than Crabtree.

And with the '07 draft, he's ignoring the fact that we had a sh*tty '08 draft because of '07:

We traded away the #6 pick in the 2008 draft for the #28 in the 2007 draft.

we certainly had a s**tty 2008 draft, but I don't see how it devalues our 2007 draft.

Ignoring or doesn't give a s**t? He's simply assessing the personnel we accumulated in 2007 . . . which was a good haul of solid players. With the exception of the 6th & 7th rounds we had questionable picks throughout the 2008 draft no matter what impact 2007 had on where we drafted in round #1.
