Anytime you can come away from your draft with 2 Pro Bowl players and one solid starter is an A+ in my book. Lets not forget Kyle Williams is not that bad of a receiver either.
I think you mean 3 pro-bowlers (Bowman).
When you nail 3 pro-bowl players in the first 4 picks, and you have 2 key special teamers with 2 out of the last 4, you have to give that an A+. Not to mention, Adams has turned out to be a very solid player/top punt returner for the Raiders, so even that 7th round pick was a good one, just not for us though.
I'd say A, just because of how badly the Taylor Mays pick turned out. But definitely a very strong draft.
I just looked at the 2010 draft results, there weren't a lot of names that really jumped out at me that were available in the 2nd:
Fair enough, and an A grade is stellar, I'm just saying that an A+ would have meant that Mays would have worked out, at least worth more than a future 7th rounder just after 2 seasons.
