C. Decent early rounds. Poor mid rounds.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

I saw that, and I was really surprised, although the lowest grade they gave any team was a B-... so there's that. I was torn between B and C. I ended up giving a C just because there were too many reach picks... I was really excited after Pryor and Amaro, ever since then the only pick I really liked was Dozier.

Yeah not really a fan of Boyd... I'd rather have had Brett Smith in round 7.

I voted C.  Not that I or most anyone else up here knows squat.  I would have voted higher if they had used picks to move up and get a better WR instead of taking 3 of questionable ability later.  Of course, if one of them turns out to be Jerry Rice II............................................

If Bridgewater and Manziel start winning playoff games, the grade falls somewhere between F and Hiroshima

Bridgewater hurt slightly, but Geno got this and trading Bridgewater later wouldn't beat an 18 pick now. Thats actually how I rationalized it.

That. But also there are guys that we passed on in every round 3-5 who were graded higher. The players we took better pan out because if Turner or Ellington are good and our selections aren't Idzik deserves to have his job thrown into question. He really went out on a limb with a bunch of these picks in a draft where the Jets had a huge opportunity to build a strong base for the future.

I say a solid B. The only pick I really did not like was Mcdougle in the 3rd.

I don't grade drafts after a day.

It's like marking an exam based on handwriting.

It was promising at the top. But as we got to the middle its was downright nasty and defies any shred of football common sense!

Because I'm so traumatized by the Tannenbaum Era, I'm actually taking it as a positive that we didn't draft "popular" names that draftniks liked.

in the back of my mind, a nasty voice keeps whispering...."1998"

 

I think pryor and amaro spare us that humiliation, but after that this draft has a spam quality to it

Fair enough... If you took an English exam it could be the most important part. I'm obviously basing it off of film, scout evaluations, college stats, etc. Only thing we have to go off of right now.

Yep I never could have passed on Manziei. Even if he fails he was worth the shot. 

 

Solid B as we took multiple DB's and WR's hoping something sticks.

This was my main reason to downgrade as well... The first two picks made me stay with a C though.
