Preseason draft grades

Interesting take on our rookies

Gives us a C+ for our players. Couldn't believe he gave DIal, Carradine and Latimore Fs. It's totally stupid likely east coast bias.

Right, why the hell give the injured players Fs? Just give them INC grades like they deserve. And he gives Patton a C+ probably because he's only played in one game LOL.

Vance McDonald has been good, but I believe he had like two drops in the Broncos game. So that automatically should disqualify him from getting an A. Oh well, this grading system was a joke.

I was gonna give this dump truck an F (in evaluation) until I read this "The core of this 49ers' draft class is promising on both sides of the ball." I guess he needed to give an F instead of INCs to figure out his lame formula

F**K this ryan riddle clown, he gets a D-
If anything, we should get an "A" for the injured players, they have allowed us to keep more players on the "team", so if we have injuries later on in the season, the injured players should be ready to step in. These injured players are not hurting our team at all.

Especially when, like Lattimore, we drafted him with the specific intention that they would wait and get healthy, not contribute immediately. If anything, taking Lattimore in the 4th is an "A" move even if he doesn't step on the field this year. The whole grading system is antithetical to our style of team-building

I wouldn't go that far.

I think this is probably one of the best drafts we've had in a very long time...if the hurt guys work out like we hope they do
Ill wait to see what Maddog and Phoenix give the 9ers grades on the draft. I trust them a hell of alot more than bleacher report.

I think I would wait.

How the draft picks play in regular season games is more important than what the bleacher report, maddog, phoenix, or anybody thinks.

You shut your filthy mouth.



But seriously, why does anyone bother posting BleacherReport, you know the majority of the content is written by dudes sitting around in their basements, taking a break after each paragraph to take a hit off a bong and go surf for Japanese anime porn.


As Buck said, you can't really judge a draft class this soon, or even after a season or two, it seems right now, based on everything, that this was a homerun by Baalke in many ways, but we'll have to see how things play out, see how Carradine, Lattimore and Dial do next season, see how Reid responds when teams actually start testing and targeting him, see if McDonald can improve in terms of catching the ball, see if Patton can routinely beat press coverage which he struggled with during college, see if Lemonier's solid performance in the preseason translates to the regular season....etc. So far so good, IMO, but we'll see what comes next.
