so if team A takes a QB #1 overall and he becomes a David Carr.....life time backup, what would be acceptable? For being taken that high, to never even becoming close to what you were projected is a failure.

Enough time has passed for tempers to have reduced somewhat.
First, an A does NOT mean perfection nor near perfection.
B = very good
C = good
F = unacceptable
When a team picks a All Pro player in the 3rd round or lower, extra value needs to be assigned.
I would use an A+ plus grade for Bowman. This is similar to the extra value assigned for honor courses.
The grading should be on the player's overall performance in the league not just performance for the team that drafted him.
If a player is still playing in the league after 3 years, an F is not an acceptable grade.
If two players have performed more or less equally, and one player was drafted in the 2nd round and the other in the 6th, the grade assigned to the 6th round player should be higher.
What would you consider the Balmer pick?
A lifetime back quarterback taken #1 overall. Good question. I did not follow his career.
Carr has a lifetime passer rating of 74.9 and 59.7% completion rate, started in 79 games, had 65 touchdowns and 71 picks.
Clearly, not a good grade. Not an F, a D-
Balmer was not even as serviceable as Carr, plus if I remember correctly he went AWOL from both the Seahawks and the Redskins.
He poor play and lack of responsibility
would get him a F.
So, I do guess an exceptional FU can get a F even though he played for three years.
I will have to adjust my thinking on the three years.
But, at this point, I would give Taylor Mays a D, not an F.
You do understand that an A does not mean perfection, right.
