1. Stephon Gilmore - Had some inconsistencies as expected from a rookie CB, but considering starting from week 1 and having to deal with opponents top WR he played very well. Showed signs of becoming a quality shut down CB. Final Grade (B+)

2. Cordy Glenn - One LT job from pre season, and started out looking like a potential stud. Leg injury struck causing him to miss a couple games and came back very average. All in all looks like he may be long term answer at LT. Final Grade (B)

3. TJ Graham - His knock coming out of college was his hands, and sure as [inappropriate/removed] that knock came true with Bills. Graham got an increase of looks with Donald Jones injury but failed to take advantage. Graham has speed but it is irrelevant if he can't catch the ball. I am disappointed with this pick. Final Grade (C-)

4. Nigel Bradham - Started of season in reserved roll, but took o er starting spot by mid season. I originally thought he would be strictly MLB but came in and played inconsistently to finish the season. He looked lost in passing plays at time but played decent vs the run the final few weeks. IMO need to see a little more of him but. Final Grade(C)

5. Ron Brooks - This kid was my favorite preformer in pre season. But didn't get regular season looks due to injury. I believe Brooks will at least be battling for Nickel role next season so am gonna grade even due with injuries. final Grade (C)

6. Zebrie Sanders - Was on IR all season so didn't get looks but still is flexible enough to back up both T spots. Final Grade (INC)

Any thoughts

With TJ Graham. I think that he deffintley has to work on his hands, but I do think that he has potential. Even though he wasn't worth the pick in the 3rd round I can see some good in him. Fitzpatrick always seemed to go deep with him but he couldn't get him the ball. If we can find a QB who can throw a deep ball and works on his catching ability he can be a difference maker.

I think that Gilmore and Glenn also will be very good starters for this team within due time. Nobody on this team though deserved an "A" for a grade though like you have.

Well to be fair, even if their no longer with us, we did spend a draft pick on them, thus they do warrent grading, even if it's an F because they didn't play a snap for us.

Powell is garbage and Snow likely will be around for interior depth

I wouldnt call him garbage. He is no Brian Moorman, but Powell certianly isnt garbage.

PS this is coming from a guy (me) who hated the Moorman releasing and the Powell signing.

Moorman was punting poorly when they let him go. With his youth, you would think Powell has no where to go but up. With Moorman it is the opposite.
