    Grading last years draft....

    Looking back at last years draft what would u grade Sabans last draft...

    Round 1 Jason Allen
    Round 3 Derek Hagan
    Round 4 Joe Toledo
    Round 7 Fred Evans
    Round 7 Rodrique Wright
    Round 7 Devin Aromashodu

    This might have been the worst draft in the NFL last year, Toledo was injured but Hagan and Allen were the only ones that showed some promise. Fred Evans could work his way onto the field over the years

    Allen showed promise ? your kidding right...this guy was getting beat out by Hill who stunk and then go ran over by Manning in the last game of the season and then a few days before that game has the nerve to say he is still learning the playbook..hagans is nice wr but we should of drafted Holmes instead and the rest r a bunch of bums...Maybe Evans might help but the grade is a F

    How the heck could we have drafted Holmes instead of Hagan? Hagan was taken in the third round and Holmes in the first.

    Too early to grade last year's draft

    It's way too early to grade last year's draft class. We only had 3 picks in the first 6 rounds.Hagan and Allen showed potential although you'd like more production from a 1st round pick.Allen may do better under the next coach's system as saban's system was supposedly difficult to learn.Of the final 3 picks(all 7th rounders) Aromashodu was cut,Wright had surgery and neither him or Evans ever had much chance to crack the D-line rotation as it's the strength of the team.The fact that 2 of 3 7th round picks are still on the roster is kinda impressive by itself.Evans and the 2 Wrights may be the future of the D-line for years.In which case Saban may be vindicated for this years draft class.

    Because appearently you can get any player you want no matter the draft slot.

    Topics like these make this board impossible to take seriously.

    I wish there was a seperate board for the level-headed and realistic Dolphin fans.

    I don't generally reply to silly posts like this. Obviously you can't grade Saban's draft for another couple of years. However, based on potential I believe he had a pretty decent draft. R. Wright in the 7th could end up being the steal of the draft. Evans looks like he will turn into a decent role player (not bad for another 7th rounder). Hagen could be a good number 2 receiver but he needs to step up production. The jury is still out on Jason Allen. I think he will end up being a help to our secondary, but there are other players who were available at that slot I would have preferred. In two or three more years we can give Saban an actual draft grade- but if you're asking for one right now I would go with a B-.
