    Now that the season is at the half way mark and we have a feel for the team.
    How would you rate our past draft?

    I would give it an B+ for so far, i'd like to see what Burnett can do and if he gives us a contibrution in the 2nd half i'll give it an A. Ware has been fantastic and Spears has taken over the starting job. Also Barber is becoming a steal and should gives us a great 1-2 punch with him and Jones.

    it's early but i'll give it A-/B+ for now. this grade is sure to climb as we begin to get more contributions from Burnett and Beriault. the long-term prognosis is excellent.

    the 3-year grade is what's important. the instant dividends are just gravy.

    I think we have a "A", hands down. Look at what we have.

    SPEARS -> Starting
    WARE -> Starting (Future Probowl)
    CANTY -> Significant Minutes (He could be amazing. Wasnt even expected to play until late this season, but has found a way to be really effective)
    PETITTI -> Starting (Allowing Bledsoe the time he needs)
    BARBER -> Starting Temporarily (Doing better than Jones is)
    THOMPSON -> A great 3rd down back
    BURNETT -> Future Starter (Hes had a slow start, but lets see how he does no that Singleton is down)
    Johnson -> Solid backup (He is paying behind Glover and Fergison. So he isnt getting alot of playing time, but i hear he is really impressing Parcells, so thats good enough for me.)

    I'd say thats not bad. We havent had a class like this in years.

    And don't forget that Ratliff was playing very well before he went down with the ankle.

    Yes this is a great draft class so far. As well as the rookie FA's.
    As posted before, Ratliff was mentioned, and was doing well. Thompson was a FA signing and a great find.

    And lets not forget that Beriault was having a good camp as well before his injury. If he hadn't gone on IR as well, I dont think we'd be seeing Dixon or Scott back.

    I would give it a tentative A - A+ would require the development of at least one All-Pro caliber player.

    However, some caution must be applied because we all remember how good the 2002 class looked after the first year - 5 starters:

    Roy Williams
    Andre Gurode
    Antonio Bryant
    Derek Ross
    Tyson Walter

    I'm sure at least 3 of them made the All-Rookie team. There were also high hopes for Jamar Martin (injured) and Pete Hunter.

    if this group doesnt rate an "A", then our previous drafts deserve grades
    that havent been invented yet. well maybe on some of my old high school
    physics tests.
