Out of curiosity, why such low grades on 7th rounders! It's the 7th round after all.

IMO Mauti has huge potential if healthy. That's a 7th round A in my books.

I don't know how you could possibly give the Mauti pick a D.

I just don't see him getting healthy and making it through camp. Maybe I'm wrong, but it's just a feeling I get. Bond is just a large man. Doesn't impress me otherwise. Seems like DeGeare all over again.

But at the end of the day, you're right. 7th round doesn't matter all that much. But I thought there was better value on the board.

He might not stay healthy but that's why he's in the 7th round. Without health concerns he doesn't get out of the top 50-60 picks. Upside alone makes it an A.

He's already rehabbing pretty good.

I would say:

Floyd A+ : Great pick. Huge steal.
Rhodes A : Quality player, a steal but somewhat questionable fit in our D
Patterson B : A for the player and value, but a D for the trade
Hodges B+ : Quality player and solid value
Locke D : He may very well be a great punter, but he already have a very good punter and a punter in the 5th is horrible value
Baca B- : Decent pick, but there's better value out there
Mauti A: Potentially a great pick. Awesome value
Bond F: Probably won't make the roster, Bailey and Uzzi were still available
Dawkins A: Another steal at this point

If, I ever come around to the Patterson pick then this draft is an A for me.

I hope Minnesota can grab a few developmental guys after the draft. With the way the draft has played out there is going to be A LOT of quality priority signings this year.

If we sign Da'Rick, this would would be an outstanding class outside the derp pick of Locke.

1-23: Sharrif Floyd [DT] Florida --- day 1 starter, impact player
1-25: Xavier Rhodes [CB] Florida State --- day 1 starter, impact player
1-29: Cordarelle Patterson [WR] Tennessee --- day 1 starter, impact player

4-120: Gerald Hodges [LB] Penn State --- possible starter, special teams player
5-155: Jeff Locke [P] UCLA --- immediate starter
6-196: Jeff Baca [OL] UCLA --- possible starter, depth player

7-213: Mike Mauti [LB] Penn State --- will compete for roster/PS spot
7-214: Travis Bond [G] North Carolina --- will compete for roster/PS spot
7-229: Everette Dawkins [DT] Florida State --- will compete for roster/PS spot

If Hodges and Baca can win their camp battles that is 6 starters in one draft. Shocked

Floyd A+
Rhodes A
Patterson A/C He was a top 20 prospect, and you can't argue with the value. I just think he's gonna bust hard.
Hodges A- Sold guy in the 4th
Locke C I did this -_____- when he was drafted
Baca B Know nothing about him
Mauti A
Bond B Kno nothing about him
Dawkins A Solid solid guy, could be a starter in a few years. I know some different draft guys gave him 3-5th round grades.

Overall probably one of the top 4 drafts this year. A grade.
