so u really gon' not post my team on here?
Post-draft grade: B+

Summary: Forgive the superlatives, but this draft could be a quiet monster in terms of getting value up and down the board. It's a fair critique to wonder about the value of a rookie class on a top team versus the time rookies can see for a noncontender such as Cleveland. And the Browns still need to get something done on offense if they want to compete, particularly at quarterback. But you at least can say the strength of this team is on defense, and the first two picks were a big part of that. No. 21 overall pick Phil Taylor started all 16 games and proved to be a great fit in this scheme. Jabaal Sheard looks like a future star and piled up 8.5 sacks along with forcing five fumbles. Greg Little needs to become more consistent, but, after missing a year of football, he showed hints of future stardom -- he had seven more catches than Julio Jones. Buster Skrine looks really good in what was already a good secondary, and Jason Pinkston gave the Browns 16 starts after being taken at No. 150. Owen Marecic and Jordan Cameron have potential. The offense couldn't do enough to make this team competitive, but it can't really take the shine off this class for me. Put it this way: If the Browns make the playoffs next season, it won't be because they had to replace any of these picks.

New grade: A-

Chiefs missing too
Post-draft grade: C+


Summary: This draft class got pushed off the rails pretty early. The Chiefs took a bit of a value chance on Jon Baldwin to target a big need at wide receiver, and when he broke his hand during the preseason, it really hurt both his development and the offense. We still don't know whether Baldwin can be a difference-maker for the Chiefs, and if Dwayne Bowe is gone next season, that'll add a lot of pressure. They might need to get a wideout again this year in the draft. Elsewhere, while I liked the picks in terms of needs (B) last year, I didn't think the value was there (C+), and that showed up. In fact, the only thing that keeps this draft from being really poor in the short run is the emergence of Justin Houston, who played more like the player who initially was pegged as a first-round talent; the Chiefs got him in the third. Rodney Hudson, Allen Bailey and others are still not there yet.

Titans.

Post draft grade: C

The pick of Jake Locker was one I described then as the first true shock of the draft, even more so than the deal that got Atlanta in position to take Julio Jones. Remember, Locker has an immense skill set but still faces big questions about how accurate he'll be, and I thought he easily could have fallen into the 20s. On that front, although I couldn't fault the Titans for targeting a need, the value proposition wasn't in their favor. However, their plan for Locker has been superb; adding Matt Hasselbeck as a starter and mentor was a great idea. Elsewhere, the Titans got some really good early returns and value. Jurrell Casey and Karl Klug, picked in the third and fifth rounds, respectively, have been very good (Klug really got after quarterbacks), as has Akeem Ayers, which wasn't much of a surprise. It's hard to raise the grade too much until we know whether Locker is indeed the future, but, a year out, it looks as if the Titans planned and scouted well overall.
New Grade: B
No mention of Colin McCarthy. He was the most impressive this season.
