    Grading the '98 draft

    according to SI, the Dolphins almost flunked if it wasnt for Surtain


    Dolphins. Not Jimmy Johnson's finest hour. Knowing his love for the 12-ounce green bottles, could he possibly have been drafting during Happy Hour? John Avery in the first round? Brad Jackson and Larry Shannon in the third? Only Patrick Surtain, an excellent corner taken with the 44th overall pick, saves this from being an F-bomb.

    The point of the article was that it takes 5 years to properly grade a draft. And he was pretty harsh on every team, not just us.

    So many teams got a "C-" or lower that he oughta start grading by a curve

    I would add that Brad Jackson is a very under rated linebacker. He has played real well in limited time with the Ravens.

    As for Larry Shannon......uuuummm, better than Randy Moss allegedly.

    Speaking of Moss, one draft "expert" prior to the '98 draft predicted that Moss would be an NFL bust. Now that may not sound unusual, but with this draftnik it wasn't a character issue. He thought that there was no way that Randy would be able to get off the line in the NFL....So much for experts.

    Nice of them to forget about the very solid DE Kenny Mixon who started for us for a couple years and now starts for Minny and Bromell who is a backup in Minny.

    Lo Bro and Mixon make the draft a D instead of an F - http://www.miamidolphins.com/history...ices8.asp#1998

    though counting Pat is almost cheating since we got him in 98 via Carolina for our 1st-round pick in 2000 .

    I would still give it a D - Brad Jackson never made the active roster
