    never understand all the hate for the Cowboys, Giants and Bears reached just as far on their 1st round picks and noone says a word about it...

    Meh. Who really cares what some fifth rate website grades us?

    Draft grades are useless following a draft. No one knows what is going to happen to these group of players. What matters is three years down the road.


    Personally, I graded the Cowboys as a rhombus. The Vikings, I graded out as purple. As for the Bears, they graded somewhere between fresh cut grass and a squirrel.

    Rams had the best draft IMO.

    Our draft has received too much hate, oh well.

    So SF gets a high grade, figured that. Let's take a look.

    1st round - gave up a 3rd round pick to move up to take a safety that most had rated as a 2nd rounder.

    2nd round - drafted a TE at 55 after already having Vernon Davis on the roster. We get slack for drafting one at 47 because we have Witten.

    Used a pick on an injured RB with Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and LaMicheal James on the roster.

    If San Fran had not made the Super Bowl last year and had this same draft, folks would be dogging it.

    Past draft history should not factor into anyone's ratings, but it does. They should grade them based on where they thought the player would go and how they fit into the current team.

    Not only did they both reach, but they didn't get an extra third rounder out of the deal either.

    They lost their #2 TE to the Titans and most mock drafts i saw had Reid going to the Bengals at #21 so they reached on a 1st rounder not like us that reached on a 3rd-4th rounder in the 1st. :banghead:

    We didn't reach for a 3rd-4th rounder, anyone who says Frederick was a 3rd or 4th round pick is wrong.

    We lost our #2 TE to San Diego.

    No way Fred goes in the 3rd or 4th. Middle second at the most, as some reports have said Detroit was going to take him in the 2nd. Just like Miami was going to take Escobar in the 2nd.

    Last I saw Kiper and Mayock has Reid as the 3rd best safety. Reid was reach, he was not the 18th best player in the draft and that's what we are getting dinged for with Fred, folks saying he wasn't the 31st best player.

    Can't have it both ways. Lots of teams reached, at least we got a 3rd round pick for it.

    this site is a joke...this was supposed to be a draft ranking/grading and they take into consideration that the team is already strong, so "B"...or that the redskins traded their picks away to get RG3,..."B"....um, no, at face value, many of the teams mentioned did not draft well

    ....this site will go on my "joker" list for the future....

    Meg, D is pretty low but they are right that we drafted a lot of guys that won't contribute much this year. Just like the year before, and that led to another 8-8.

    What a garbage write up D-, come on now we had 5 guys in most everyone's big boards so how is that a D-. I'll bet all of the picks will contribute this season too.
