    Final Grade for this years draft: B+

    We got faster, we got bigger...and we addressed the front 7 on D. I love it.


    I know 3 or 4 posters hate damn near every pick we made but what about the rest of you?

    Like all drafts, it's wait and see. And hope.

    I would've liked to see an OLB taken at some point, but I guess the value just wasn't there

    If McCullers plays to his potential and is a dominant lineman and Bryant develops into a solid #3 this will be a solid A+ draft

    I agree there are some posters that you just can't please.

    Oh you mean about the draft picks. Some of them I questioned at the time, but after finding out more info on the players I'm good with them

    I just really hope McCullers can develop into that space eating nose tackle we need to free up our LBs. BTW Foco, nice job with your mock, its excellent! You named four of the guys we picked!

    Simply a great draft. I have to trust the front office at this point with taking shazier over mosley. And I do believe he is more versatile than mosley and has a higher ceiling.
    The tuitt pick was quality filled a need with nice value.
    Taking Archer was a stroke of genius. He wasnt gonna be there for us in the 4th. This guy is special. Ben is gonna love him.
    The Bryant selection was right on the money. filling a need with real nice value. It's up to the coaches and his mates to get him to where this pick pays off in a huge way.
    Mccullers. Just like the Bryant pick. Only better. Man. If this guy gets it. HO-LEE-SHEET.
    As far as the other selections go, we shall see.
    Zumwalt will provide even more competition at lb, if not solid depth. Always a good thing.
    Hopefully Richardson pans out. He was the only cb we drafted, so he must bring something to the table that the staff likes. Pretty much the only thing scaring me with this draft.
    The OT, Johnson, is intriguing. Diamond in the rough?
    Got nothing on Blanchflower. But he's a 7th round selection, so how much can one expect.

    The potential is there for this draft to be A quality. My fingers are crossed.

    I think Johnson was the only pick that I was unsure about. But I don't know ANYTHING about him. We need depth though.

    Right now, I'll give it a B... Only change for me could've been the 3rd round pick.. But getting Bryant in the 4th, I think is a steal.....so, if he pans out, grade could go to a B+ or A-.

    Opens the door to bring back Deebo for depth at OLB post June 1 when some of the Woodley $ comes back onto our cap. Having guys like Joey Porter and James Harrison in their ears can only help guys like Jarvis Jones, Ryan Shazier, and Jason Worilds.
