    ...I'm assuming they're factoring in Chambers and Oliver here because a "B" is a little high for only 5 Bolt picks. I like their assessment of the Turds and Donks. Uncle Al just has no clue and Shanarat seemed determined to see just how many wide receivers he can sign in ONE year! Hard to argue with the Chefs and all the picks they had. Also the draft early on, really fell their way. Detroit swapping picks with them (Brandon Alberts), made their first three picks a slam dunk. They have a ways to go but at least they seem to be on the right track.

    "After they lost Sammy Davis and Drayton Florence"???

    Someone needs to let the author know that Sammy Davis was gone a few years ago. :lol:

    Kiper (from one of the links SDR posted):

    Umm, there were no more decent tackles left when we drafted @ #27, let alone later in the draft.

    And KC got an A because they took the guy Mel had rated #1 overall, Dorsey.

    I can't remember a single year that we haven't got a C from most draft "experts", and the following year they are always eating crow.

    that's true, hell i've given AJ C's and he keeps turning out As

    the one thing I don't like out of all of these grades is, if you look back last year at New England's draft grades, they don't include the contributions of Chambers and Weddle whereas NE's in 2007 (which was one of their worst drafts ever) was either A or B+ because of acquiring Welker and Moss

    Whenever the press can find a way to blow the Patriots, they do.
