    My draft grade as of now is a B.

    I think over time our first rounder must stick and be a top 10 player at his position to be worthy of the pick he was taken. If he is a top 5 player at his position, then the graft grade for him would be an A.

    Our second round pick should be a solid rotational player and play 50% of the snaps this year, or must be an outstanding situational player to merit the pick and/or become a starter by year 2 to merit the selection at the place he was drafted. If he exceeds that, then he would merit an A.

    The Murray pick brings the most potential upside. Murray should be a solid backup, and get get some situational playing time during meaningful points in the game and/or be a factor on special teams to merit making this pick. In the event that he gets significant playing time and or eventually becomes the starter this year or next year, then I think this selection would merit an A.

    In the event that any of the remaining picks contribute in any substantial manner, then the grade for them would be an A.

    a solid B would haave been a A

    except the Murray pick. I think we could have gone else where there and gotten better value.

    B+ depending on how Demarco works out. If they had used that pick on a DL I would have been happier, but at least they stayed true to their draft board and on a team needing help at nearly every position they couldn't miss filling a "need".
