How Would You Grade The Draft?

I do like the back.   But... we have backs already, and its not that hard to find more.   

Drafting a good LB instead -might- have meant not having to draft an LB high, next year.  Same as if we drafted Hurst last year instead if Ito, we would have had more D line depth coming into -this- draft.

We could have gotten a back in the 6th.   But TD traded our 6th and 7th rounders away to move up a few spots.... where, in the 4th?  So we were left with the Rams' 6th....

I agree with @FalconFanSince1969 above.

All in all, I’m in the B to C range. That McGary pick/trade is pure ass.

Lindstrom: A-

McGary: D+

Sheffield: C+

Cominsky: A

Ollison: B-

Miller: B+

Green: B

Looks harder, but college. I don't get the four RB thingy. He must have been BPA.

The last time  that  DK was here we carried 4 backs.

Jackson, Freeman, Quizz and Smith.

Plus Dimarco.

So we carried 5 guys in the backfield.

 

I can see that happening again.

That's why White went so high and the Steelers of all teams, a team that rarely trades up, traded up because they desperately needed a LB and Bush was it.

If we want a LB I'd much rather scavenge free agency after cuts this year.

I think Pitt will regret that trade.

White to the Bucs was a good pick. But they had to have him, as Alexander is gone. McCoy will be soon. They won't pay him. Too pricey for the Falcons tho.

But their middle will be exploitable this season.

Both desperate picks.

I see it happening too. Just seems excessive.

What if the plan all along as been to wait for McCoys release?? We could easily free up the cash with OL cuts now.

I give it a D. 

Lindstrom is fine as a player.  Not the value I was hoping for at 14. He will be a starter at guard for years, but to me if you’re taking a guard at 14 it better be zack Martin. I would have liked him a lot more at 31. McGary I’m not sold on. There were far better options. 2 big reaches. Hope I am wrong, but I was really disappointed

There’s no way in hello operator you can give an accurate grade now....maybe by the end of next season but prolly two yrs from now. You should of just ask for an opinion of the draft.....and still yet nobody knows jack shet

I don't know anything on what could be available after OL cuts, But McCoy wants $14M extended. So there is that. There is the GJ thingy hangin.

He would be a great addition.

Just short of a solid A 

Yeah? I trust your judgment more than most here, so to see a ringing endorsement from you is a big deal considering I haven't seen anyone else give it higher than a B.

I know you like the corners taken. What are the other players that stood out to you?

Ollison is a steal. That was a straight up steal. I thought we wouldn’t even look his way. 

Pretty much everyone can be at least moderately successful. This was a good haul. I lost faith we’d do anything about the defense and RB situation, but was proven wrong.

I'm not calling it pure ***, but I am of a similar mindset that it wasn't worth the trade up. No love for Sheffield? I thought he was a very under the radar pick up.

With us going with 2 Olneman, I could see that.

I have to say between a B- and C+. I’m so disgusted that the Panthers signed Elijah Holyfield tho instead of keeping him in Atlanta. That’s how Giants fans feel about Dwayne Haskins going to the Redskins.

All these abbreviations. I know. I just don't know when to use them, I reckon.
