For where we're at, I think it's pointless to quibble over a B-/C+. In a few years, yeah, we can do that. But I like a simple grading scale when applicable. I grade girls like so: 1 (I wouldn't ****); 2 (I'd ****, but I wouldn't brag); 3 (I'd brag).

Cleveland killed it in the 1st round. Acquired 2 immediate starters from day 1 that provide signficant upgrades at both positions. I think they got the Offensive Rookie of the Year with the 3rd pick, and the second best QB in the draft at #22 overall.

Can you believe the Browns are giving up on McCoy already? I do not really see much of Cleveland, but giving up on a QB after one year.:idk:

I just can't get too excited about Weeden. Richardson is one of the best picks in the draft. I agree about ORY for him. It was between a (-) and ( ).

McCoy was a 3rd round pick... and yes I can believe they're ready to move on from him.

I use a similar scale in rating girls but its more like 0(I would do her sober); 3(I would need 3 beers); 6(i would need 6 beers); 12(i would need 12 beers) and finally the keggers

I guess Kirkpatrick says that the Bengals will be running more Zone and/or Cover 2 looks . . . but that then begs the question: Do you need Zone/Cover 2 CB in the top 20? They passed on a shot at DeCastro twice . . . and ended up with Zeitler - when they could have draft Glenn or Konz. I think they should have given S. Hill a look. Green is versatile enough to make that combo work. I also think they should have looked at K. Wright at 17. The Bengals could have drafted Wright and DeCastro. I think that would have made them a much better team than Kirkpatrick and Zeitler.

I like Coples as a 3-4 DE/DT on passing downs. Really, I should probably bump them down to moderate for passing on Perry and Ingram (they need pass rush help), but I can't say he was a weak pick.

Moderate - (only if Tannehill plays up to starting QB expectations) If he turns us into a playoff team(2-3 years from now) then I will give him a strong grade.


I have liked RTich prospect for a while, but in every instance the pundits on the board keep saying that a running back could not, should not, and would not be drafted in the first round. They are deemed obsolete in today's modern offenses. Well, as it turns out, 3 were chosen in the first round, including a pick by the world champion Giants.
I would have traded up for TRich if I were the GM.. No question. Instead we reached for a QB at #8 that could have been picked 15-20 and may not even play a regular season down for 2 seasons. We could have a future pro bowl player on the team, but all we have to show for now is a potential starter a couple years from now.

Also, this is two years in a row where a player I thought was being severely underrated by the media fell only to be drafted at the end of the 1st by the Packers.

Sherrod/Perry.

The Eagles draft so far is just ****ing nasty. Cox, Kendricks, Curry . . . damn.

Some picks just make too much sense

The Jags just took a punter in the 3rd round

He's going to earn his paycheck there

Drafts I'm really liking:

Colts - Luck, Fleener, Allen, Hilton - Very, very nice.
Eagles - Cox, Kendricks, Curry, Foles - I can forgive Foles for the rest of it.
Ravens - Upshaw, Osemele, Pierce - Very solid.
Jets - Coples, Hill, Davis - Like all the value on all of 'em.
Packers - Perry, Worthy, Hayward - Curious to see how they use Worthy, but like the value on each.

I personally LOVE our draft. I am very high on each one of these players. We got two first rounders in Tannehill and Martin. Then a big pass catching TE that can go get the ball for our young QB, and a strong, fairly athletic, homegrown defensive end with TONS of upside still.

I'd give it a B+ and the only thing keeping me from giving it an A is the lack of a wide receiver so far. But if we add a few guys with the likes of Streeter, McNutt, Wylie, Givens, Adams, Toon, Criner and Marvin Jones, this could easily be bumped to an A in my book. The Philbin Era is off to a nice start in my eyes. A lot of hope for the future!

GO PHINS!! And a tip of the cap to Mr. Ireland so far!

I was hoping so hard that Branch wouldn't be our pick. So hard.

There are still some nice WR's on the board. But we need to get a couple. Like 4sRS
