Who gives a f**k? Their draft boards were all f**ked up compared to what actually went down, all this proves is that the people whose jobs depend on making the right picks are brighter than the so-called prognasticators.

Agreed. We all need to acknowledge that the fan-scout era on the internet is mostly smoke and mirrors.
C+ for me so far. Maybe B- depending on our last pick.

Hes one tough fugger.
I like this draft. Stockpiling picks has made the Patriots a player on draft day every year. We got to special players in the first two rounds. So take a ground pounding guard for a team that likes to pound the rock, but add speed players for a change of pace. Yes, I would have liked to see a DL player drafted, but even I who was a fan of Billy Winn saw how he got handled at the Sr Bowl. We can get those extra D lineman next year, but we added some new tools for the offense.

A+ by my account. LOL

Grading the draft as soon as it ends.

Same. Who gives a f**k about grades. No one can predict the future. Your grades reflect whether *you* like the pick or not. No one knows who's going to turn out to be good or bad, not even the "experts".

Grading drafts is a senseless exercise before 2 or 3 years.

The same experts on here gave last year's draft a middling grade and look how that turned out

Are there any 2013 mock drafts?

I don't think Streeter will even be on Baltimore's practice squad this year. He should have stayed in college one more year.

I don't understand that argument. If staying in college one more year would have turned him into a great prospect, wouldn't that be the perfect argument in favor of drafting him late for value? What better way to develop into an NFL receiver than being in the NFL?

Not sure what people were expecting?


I think AJ Jenkins was a brilliant pick, he could be the #2 WR by the start of the 2013 season, he's one of the most ready to contribute WR's in the draft.

LaMichael James is pure explosion on offense, can create all sorts of mismatches, make this team more dangerous and unpredictable.

Looney is a good addition as a guard, good character guy, leader, could end up as a starter for this team.

Fleming is good OLB depth, not flashy but does everything well, will be a boost to special teams and injury insurance for this team.

Robinson was a steal where he was picked, provides badly needed safety depth, great coverage safety, a team leader, very good pick.

Slowey was a small school sleeper, the 49ers met with him, liked him, decided...why not? He can move to center, he's aggressive, tough, loves to compete



Not sure what anyone has to be upset about, there will be more OL depth and the offense will be significantly more dangerous.....I'm content.
