Draft grades



I always enjoy checking out all the teams drafts' and seeing who I think did well............or not. The 1 team that really stood out in my view was the Bengals, not known as a team that usually excells....

Bengals: it doesn't hurt to have 2 #1 picks

1- Dre Kirkpatrick- outstanding CB

1- Kevin Zeitler-one of the top G's

2- Devon still-a first rounder on most boards

3- Mohammed Sanu- really slid down, great value

3- Brandon Thompson- solid DT

4- Orson Charles-some ranked him above Fleener and Allen

5- Shawn Prater- love Iowa hawkeyes

5- Marvin jones- another great value in the 5th round

5- Geore Illoka- was on my wish list for a Colts pick

6- Dan Herron-quality Rb from a big time program

summ: one of the best drafts I have seen in recent years (on paper)

Rams: it doesn't hurt to have 3 #2's

1- Michael Brockers- best DT in the draft

2- Brian Quick- very good WR from a very small school

2- Janoris Jenkins-one of the top CB's in the draft with some off field issues ( a gamble)

2- Isaiah Pead- one the fastest RB's in the draft

3- Trumane Johnson- another player on my wish list-would have taken him over Allen

4- Chris Givens- very good value in the 4th

5- Rokevious Watkins- not many quality guards around

6- Greg Zurelein- same can be said for kickers

7- Aaron Brown- has a chance

7- Daryl Richardson- both are very good value in the 7th round

Minnesota- doesn't hurt to have 2 #1's and 3 # 4's

1- Matt Kalil- OUTSTANDING player

1- Harrison Smith- very good/great safety

3- Josh Robinson- another player I had my eye on

4- Jarious Wright- good, not great value

4- Rhett Ellison- see above

4- Greg Childs- all 3 4th rounders should be solid players

5- Robert Blanton- good pick

6- Blair Walsh- another kicker

7- Audie Cole

7- Trevor Guyton- both 7th rounders were very good value picks

who missed the boat?

Saints- it's hurts to not have a #1 or 2 .........got a develpmental player from Canada who could surprise ( Hicks) and Al Toon's son, not much else

Oakland- ( some things never change) didn't have a #1, #2 or a #3.....got a good Guard with their 2nd 3rd round pick and a couple of Nittany Lions ( I like that part)

I thought the Colts did great with their first 6 picks, with all 6 being quality players, but as I said in my last blog, didn't really see the logic used on some of them (Allen-Hilton) wasn't too impressed with the last 4 picks or the udrafted free agents ( as a group).....time will tell

Thanks Ken! You really put in the time to research each team and drafted players then need to come with your own opinion! I wish I had put that much effort into my school work!!!!! Thanks again Ken.

As much as I hate to say it, I agree the Bengals did well! I wish I would have seen you were blogging....good analysis as always.

I like the Allen pick for the Colts if we truly are going to use some 3 TE sets. Good job Ken!!
