You are supposed to wait three years to evaluate a draft class. So what do you think of our 2003 draft now that the players have 3 years under their belts? T. Newman...round 1 pick 5...B+(If he played 04 like 03 & 05 I would give him a A) A. Johnson...round 2 pick 38...C+(I thought he was going to be better, but he is one that might still turn the corner) J. Witten...round 3 pick 69...A+(He has got to be the steal of this draft) B. James...round 4 pick 103...A-(It took him all three years to really make an impact, but for a 4th round pick he is a great steal, I think he is our best run stopper and he turned out to be more than I expected) B.J. Tucker...round 6 pick 178...D-(I won't give us an F here just based on the fact that he is still in the NFL) Z. Smith...round 6 pick 186...C(He was a pretty good return man his rookie year but couldn't contribute to the passing game) J. Bates...round 7 pick 219...C-(What can you expect from a 7th rounder?) So in retrospect we got a solid possibly even shutdown corner. A starting center with some run blocking problems, but a smart assignment caller for the line and a decent pass blocker. An outstanding tight end in the third (for third money might I add), while all these teams are using first rounders on tight ends of lesser talent and spending more. One of our starting ILB's that is solid in run D and is the new leader and signal caller of our D. Plus a few late rounders that didn't add up to much except for Z. Smith's rookie year. I say Bill Parcells first draft was a definite success and an amazing improvment over the years before him. I give us a B+ overall, if Johnson was dominating or we could have gotten one of those late rounders to contribute like P. Crayton does from the 2004 class I would have given the 2003 class an A. So I give Bill a big for the job he did in this draft.
