    Draft 1st Round Draft Grades (A+)

    3. Miami Dolphins (f/OAK) - Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon
    ---Watch out, Tom Brady! Cameron Wake and Dion Jordan will likely be one of the best pass rushing tandems for years to come. By trading up with Oakland, the Dolphins are doing everything they can to compete with New England. Grade: A+
    Take it for what its worth.

    he gave two teams out of the whole first round a grade below b- so yea not impressed with his take at all. EJ manual was given a b- thats all I need to see.

    best tandem for years to come? I love Cameron Wake and his worth ethic is amazing, but unfortunately he's getting a little old. But if anyone can still be effective until they are 35 years old, it would be Wake.

    Well I remember Trace Armstrong doing quite well at 35, hopefully Wake can approach Trace's year.

    He is a generous grader, but that said...

    EJ is far and away the best QB in this year's draft IMO.

    As long as Wake can stay healthy, I see no reason why they couldn't be a great tandem for the next 5 years.

    That's true, but if you look at this in perspective, as grading on a curve, out of 32 teams (some with multiple picks) only 3 received "A+'s" and of those 3, STL and MN had 2-3 picks cumulatively to amass their equal grades.






    "Yep. Blow it up. This might the worst team I've ever seen constructed in my life.
    And then you throw in the terrible preparation and in-game coaching. There is no defense.
    But do it right. Fire everyone in the building. No survivors. , JiF Jetnation

    Well he graded picks individually and like I said He gave Buffalo a B- not to mention he have Jville a b for taking Joekel and penalized them for not taking Jordan or Answah.
    Their oline is horrible and their dline is terrible but do u really want to get your qb's killed . There are alot of pass rushers left and neither Jordan or friggin Answah were graded higher than him.

    You need a QB to win in the league. The Bills got theirs. He has the intangibles to be a good QB. He needs a year to sit and observe. Watch out for EJ in 2014, just saying.
