49ers Draft Grades

I have no problems with our draft, but there are some players that I have no familiarity with.

I have decided that attempting to give our draft a grade before the team has played makes no sense.

I understand that giving a draft grade is a game unto itself, and a fun game at that, but I am going to wait until the end of the 2013 season to give this drat a tentative grade.

But, I will follow the grading game as it develops. Go at it.
A+
Moody might be a high character guy who fits somewhere in their devious minds...LOL! Who knows? Maybe his uncle coached with Jack Harbaugh so they gave him a shot.

Overall, I think when a draft is graded it should account for number of extra picks, particularly in the first four rounds...players who have a good chance to catch on even with a good team. I discount the later rounds because they are really not much better than UDFAs.

I would have taken a much different group but that's why I'm not a general manager. Still wonder what went on with J Williams! Did read an article that said Dial may have more upside than Williams...but then, you can read almost anything leading up to the draft.

Heard that JWfell due to medical concerns (knee), FWIW.

also, FWIW, I really DO think we had a good draft. I just like our rds 1-4 picks FAR better than the rest. The rest just felt to me like Baalke and Co. left after the 4th to go celebrate and left some knucklehead behind to throw darts at the remaining draft board.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
I give it a FA

Means F (fill in the missing letters) Awesome!
Niner's draft widely being reported as one of the best ... hard to argue with that!

CBS Sports Draft Scout summed up their grade with this:

LOL! Yes, the later picks seemed incongruous given the first five...make that seven! But there have been a number of years when they didn't have seven picks for the whole draft...97 with three picks and 95 with four! Both horrific drafts for the 9ers...Druckenmiller!? I'm really curious about Dial. Read some good things about him and wonder if he was underrated due to the other players on the team ahead of him.
The draft class boiling down to an A, C,or F is all on if Carradine and Lattimore make it back and play at a pro bowl level. If they both make it back to play at a pro bowl level it's an out of the park home run. its an easy A ++++ if they come back and are just average player its an C if they never make it back its probably an F. I hope Lemonier, Patton, and Dial all come in and blow us all away. play at a pro bowl level year 1 or 2. Then it will not matter what happen with Carradine and Lattimore.

If your watching the ESPN show Mel Kiper has quite a few teams with a higher draft grade.
