    Arizona (B-)

    Comments: Don't like the trade for Branch. Good job getting nasty aggressive players.

    Atlanta (B+)

    Comments: Anderson and Blalock are good picks while the others will bring competition. Might have deserved an A- but I'm giving them a B+.

    Baltimore (B+)

    Comments: Good solid picks - Figurs should give that team a boost.

    Buffalo (A-)

    Comments: Marshawn is a good character guy. Edwards will push Losman much like Rivers pushed Brees.

    Carolina (A-)

    Comments: Quality players all across the board.

    Chicago (C+)

    Comments: Garrett Wolfe bombs their grade and although they made some good selections, they could have done better.

    Cincinnati (B+)

    Comments: Solid and Irons should be a nice guy to feed the ball to 6-7 times a game.

    Cleveland (A+)

    Comments: Eric Wright was a fantastic pick. Thomas will do well alongside Steinbach and Brady Quinn should be efficient in their system.

    Dallas (B)

    Comments: Solid draft, nothing special.

    Denver (C)

    Comments: Seems as though whenever Denver wants to address a certain position, they draft that position in abundance. Jarvis Moss is a nice weapon but at the end of the day they could have done a lot better.

    Detroit (C+)

    Comments: Day one is over and Detroit's defense still sucks. Stanton is 45% boom 55% bust. Alama-Francis isn't going to scare anyone. The only thing saving Detroit from a D grade is Calvin Johnson.

    Green Bay (B+)

    Comments: Love the Harrell and Jackson picks, hate the Jones and Rouse picks. B+.

    Houston (B+)

    Comments: Houston should be excited about their young defense. Jacoby Jones might pay off down the road.

    Indianapolis (B)

    Comments: Decent players, the latter two who will start off as depth and will have to work their way up.

    Jacksonville (A+)

    Comments: Outstanding draft. Nelson and Mathis in the secondary? Wow. Durant and Ingram in that LB corps? Wow. Walker will produce for these guys.

    Kansas City (C+)

    Comments: Intuitive feeling that one of their day one selections will be an utter bust.

    Miami (D+)

    Comments: Two chinadolls and a 1981-born quarterback taken ahead of some outstanding players. Enough said.

    Minnesota (A)

    Comments: Peterson and Rice? Gaaaa... McCauley a boom or bust pick who might just pan out.

    New England (Fuc you)


    Comments: New England gets a big "fuc you" for a grade. I hope they enjoy their 9 second day picks :icon_rofl:

    New Orleans (A)

    Comments: Meachem and Usama Young offer incredible pro potential as does Andy Alleman.

    New York Giants (C)

    Comments: Don't like Alford at all as he will not be an impact player. Ross a good selection, while Smith will never be that great.

    New York Jets (A-)

    Comments: Good job upgrading that defense with two players who should make their defense highly competitive.

    Oakland (A-)

    Comments: Had they not traded for Mario Henderson they would be receiving an A. Moses may very well be a steal. They did what they had to do and that was upgrade their offense.

    Philadelphia (B)

    Comments: The players Philadelphia drafted are all typical Eagles system guys. Can't complain really... they brought in some quality depth and competition.

    Pittsburgh (B+)

    Comments: Timmons and Woodley will really give the defense the boost it lacked last year. Spaeth a great #2 option at tight end.

    San Diego (A)


    Comments: AJ does it again... need I say more? Well ok... AJ filled out the roster with the final two pieces required for a legitimate superbowl run, in Davis and Weddle. Waters offers quality depth and will eventually start.

    Seattle (B)

    Comments: Wilson and Mebane fit Seattle's system. Solid picks.

    San Francisco (A+)

    Comments: Willis is going to make the Niners' defense sick wicked and nasty under Greg Manusky. They made a great move for Staley and gave Smith a target in Jason Hill and added some competition with big upside in Ray McDonald.

    St. Louis (B-)


    Comments: Carriker is good but what's up with the other picks? Not what St. Louis needed.

    Tampa Bay (B-)


    Comments: Adams be good, Sears will provide competition... don't like the last two picks.

    Tennessee (C+)

    Comments: Griffin is a nice selection and he should help that defense a bit, but Henry at 50 was possibly the worst selection of the day and a desperation pick in my eyes. Paul Williams seems like another one of those mid round wide receivers Tennessee has been drafting over the years... not going to produce very much.

    Washington (A-)

    Comments: With their only pick the Washington Redskins took LaRon Landry. Landry should be a great player and is an A+ guy, but given the fact that they already have (or are supposed to have at least) a star safety, Washington has many holes which need to be filled and which haven't.

    wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to generous with washington and philly

    washington needed a good pash-rusher: JAMAL ANDERSON
    instead, they get another safety. good player, almost certainly yes; but unless he can run up to the line in .2 sec, it doesn't help their need. I think the redskins were last in sacks last year? not sure on that stat

    and philly has kelly holcolm, a.j. feely, some guy mcnabb, and so they trade out of 1st pick and take ANOTHER QB?!?!?! At least take Trent Edwards..... I live in Philly and people are pissssed here
