This draft has potential to be an A. If Dez continues into next year with how he finished this year and if Lee can build on his successes and stay healthy - game on. For now, I give it a B.

I gave it an A.

Dez is a freak of nature and arguably one the very best in the league at the wide receiver position.

Sean Lee is one of my favorite players. He is an absolute beast, a tremendous leader, and is very smart. Downside has been the injuries, but at least they havent been the same injury year after year. There is hope he can shake this "injury bug".

For a 7th round pick Lissemore was an absolute steal. He has the potential to be a starter if he can take his game to the next level.


Since you included the undrafted FA's...

I have always liked church. Showed signs of being a real good player last year. If he is healthy i think he fits this tampa 2 very well at SS.

Costa sucks, but is still with the team i guess. Not a bad backup. Burningduece is still pegged to be a starter right now...Costa just might be good enough to start over him at guard. That doesnt mean he is a starting caliber guard tho...at all.

OVERALL

With that many people still competing on the roster and competing at a high level, I had to give it an A. Getting two players like Lee and Dez is enough for an A. They are the future of this team.

If the '10 draft is an A, then what's the '05 draft (an all-time great in Ware, a stud in Ratliff, two good starters in Canty and Barber, two useful backups/JAGs in Spears and Burnett)? You've gotta keep it in perspective. This isn't even as good as '11.


You dont grade on a curve you grade by your criiteria. This meets my criteria for an A. Just because 05 was better doesn't mean anything less is worse than an A


Why wouldn't you grade on a curve when one is significantly better than the other? It's not like the 05 draft is an outlier (for Dallas, maybe, but plenty of other teams have had comparable drafts this decade). Why would you say two things are equal when they aren't?

This draft doesn't even touch 2011 IMO. It's above average but not that far so.

UDFA isn't part of drafting in my books. That's free agency. Lee and Bryant are A+ picks, Lissemore is solid. I can't warrant more then a C right now.

If Bryant stays on his progression path, Lee gets healthy and Lissemore makes that next step this year I can see it going up to an A though.

I honestly thought the C votes were jokes. Interesting.

I'm not a Jerry hater, or draft hater, but the pure production form this draft is a C. Potential is an A. None of the pick have reached their full potential and have struggled to stay on the field. Before this year people were quietly worrying Bryant wasn't going to take that next step.

I would say a B- with potential for a B+ or even an A. That would come if:

1. All 3 players can stay healthy for 1 entire season.
2. In doing so they could reach their full potential thus proving their collective worth to the team.
3. That would lead to this team becoming a regular in the postseason. As it is, we are a regular (1 win and you are in) team, and we all know how that turned out. So if these guys can stay healthy and contribute to this team getting over the hump and into the postseason for the majority of the next 5 years (that's 3 out of 5 folks) then I would say an A.

As it is, half of the players taken in the regular draft are not even on the team. You also have to account for that. You cannot just look at the star players we got and dismiss the players that didn't pan out as "Oh well." This post is about grading the "DRAFT" not "The Best Players Taken in that Draft."

As for the UDFA's, I don't know. I mean, we just took a C with our 1st overall pick this year so what does that tell you? And before anyone points out that he also plays G, consider we traded a 7th round pick for a C last year so I wouldn't even count Costa in the mix.

Kam Chancellor instead of Owusu-Ansah would have been great.

I'd give it a C+ as of right now, but if Lee can stay healthy this year, Lissemore can grow under Marinelli and Bryant picks up where he left off last year I think a B+ or A rating would be fair.

B+

Dez is a monster. If he can put together a full season comparable to the 2nd half of last season - top 3 WR isn't a reach.

I love Lee, but we need him to stay healthy.

Lissy is a solid guy, but like everyone else said, rds 4-6 are bad

I am curious about the criteria used to evaluate this draft and give it an A. Our draft in question has landed us a WR who is on the verge of being one of the dominant receivers in the game. Bryant was a great pick. A LB who when on the field is terrific, but he has proven to be fragile to date; and a rotatational DL. A great WR, a fragile LB, and a rotational DL warrants an A? Not to be confrontational or a nit picker but I really don't know what to give this draft. Maybe a C+ that can improve if Lee stays healthy and we see more of Lissemore.
