I'll put it this way... Anybody not named Landry or Blades from the Skins 07 draft sucks.

Doubt that he'll be better then LaRon Landry. But he's got the #2 locked down.

Obviously, this is very early:

1 (2). Calvin Johnson - WR: Was way overhyped coming out of college. He was drafted because he was the "best player available," despite the fact that Wide Receiver was one of the few positions that wasn't a need. Showed flashes of his great athleticism and ability, but was very inconsistent. He also showed very poor hands and dropped way too many balls. Still has enormous potential. Grade: C+

2 (43). Drew Stanton - QB: Drafted to be the Quarterback of the future. He was injured early in training camp and placed on Injured Reserved shortly after. Grade: INC

2 (58). Ikaika Alma-Francis - DL: A bit of a tweener without a true position. He played a very limited amount and almost all of his playing time came at Defensive End. Did not show the ability to rush the passer in limited playing time. Many Lions fans feel that he is better suited to play Defensive Tackle in the Tampa-2. Potential is still there. Grade: C-

2 (61). Gerald Alexander - FS: Although many people thought this was a reach on draft day, this turned out to be Millen's best pick by far. He was easily the best player in the Lions secondary, although that doesn't say much. Showed good ability to come up in run support. Showed he can make impact plays. Had two interceptions, two sacks, and six pass deflections. Still needs some work in coverage. Grade: B+

4 (105). A.J. Davis - CB: Another poor choice by Matt Millen. Davis was cut before the season. He wasn't a good fit for the Tampa-2 defense and was very raw. He couldn't even make the team as a special teams gunner or kick returner. I believe he is on the Cleveland Browns' practice squad, but don't quote me on that. Grade: F

4 (117) Manny Ramirez - OG: Drafted despite being a poor fit for Mike Martz's offense. Made the team and spent the entire season as a backup. Many are concerned with him not being able to find playing time on a very poor offensive line. Looks to be a better fit for the new offense. Still has enormous potential. Grade: C-

5 (158) Johnny Baldwin - LB: Came out of the draft as a small school sleeper from Alabama A&M. Very raw but showed very good physical tools for a late round pick. Played very well in the preseason and was excellent on special teams. A bit of a fan favorite who was cut. The Lions intended on placing him on their practice squad, but the Kansas City Chiefs snatched him up. Grade: D-

7 (255) Ramzee Robinson - CB: He was selected with the last pick of the draft, Mr. Irrelevant. Lions signed him to their practice squad after cutting him before the season. Still has some potential, but likely won't ever make the team unless there are a lot of injuries to the secondary. Grade: F

craig davis will be a stud as long as he stays at a slot receiver. Still wish we drafted Anthony Gonzalez...:(

Two completely different defenses that require way different skills. I like Beason, but for the 3-4 in general and my team (Jets) I'd take Harris over him 10 out of 10 times.

Not that Beason isn't a kickass player or wouldn't succeed in the 3-4, but I see no point in comparing him and Harris.

PATRIOTS DRAFT 2007

1 Brandon Meriweather, S, Miami (Fla.)
4 Kareem Brown, DT, Miami (Fla.)
5 Clint Oldenburg, OT, Colorado State
6a Justin Rogers, OLB, Southern Methodist
6b Mike Richardson, CB, Notre Dame
6c Justise Hairston, RB, Central Connecticut
6d Corey Hilliard, OT, Oklahoma State
7 Oscar Lua, ILB, Southern California
7 Mike Elgin, G, Iowa

This might be the worst draft class of all time, and this is coming from a patriots fan. Meriweather and Lua were the only picks to make the team, and i believe Lua was just cut after the end of the season. Meriweather has potential because he can move from safety to corner and showed some good flashes.

Meriweather ---- C+
Everyone Else---- F

Traded #28 to SF that ended up being #7 overall this year... A+
Traded a 4th round pick to Oakland for Randy Moss...... A+

With all of this factored in..........

2007 Patriots Draft...... C-

Bengals:
1. Leon Hall: B. Shaky at first as mentioned but really came into his own as the season went on. He is great in run support and his coverage abilities are pretty darn good as well. He's gonna be a nice duo with JJ for years.

2. Kenny Irons: INC. Got hurt in the preseason but looked like the real deal then(i know, its only the preseason). If he can get healthy I expect him to do real well but he's gonna be hard to keep on this team if Rudi and Chris Perry return to form. I hope we do keep him though I always liked him.

3. Ahmad Brooks(Supplemental): INC. Has all the tools and looked great in his only game played(week 1). If he can stay healthy he could be one of the best in the league. Odell and Ahmad(praying) could be a really scary duo if they both fill their potential/stay healthy/stay out of trouble.

4. Marvin White: C. Took longer than expected to get on the field for whatever reason. I really like his potential and he could be a poor man's Michael Griffin. Has a good shot at starting this year and is very ample in coverage as well as in run support. He could do very well, we shall see.

5. Jeff Rowe: D. Nothing more than a backup, adding Fitzgerald really didn't help him out.

6. Dan Santucci: C. Backup that the coaching staff apparently really likes. He's been moved to Center where he may be able to challenge Ghiaciuc for the starting job. Thats a BIG maybe though.

7. Chinedum Ndukwe: A-/B+. They really nailed it with this pick. He may not be physically ideal but he is a flat out playmaker. Im curious to see how he handles a starting role which is a very distinct possibility this year. His coverage skills really weren't tested very much but in his lone start with Marvin White he did real well. Great Pick.

Overall I'd give this draft a C right now but it could end up being one of the better ones we've had. Alot of potential here.

Has anyone given up on a first or second round pick already? I know some Falcons fans think Jamaal Anderson is going to be a bust, and he played absolutely horrible last year. He has potential and I have not given up on him, but I am wondering if anyone has already lost hope for a player drafted in the top two rounds.

D. Jarrett, well I think the Panthers have given up by going out and getting two WRs.

not terrible, if three of them become starter, which we already know griffin is, henry could be, and harris is the future at Center. And williams also has the potential to be a #2 WR in the NFL, but only time will tell.

Vikings
1. Adrian Peterson, RB: A+ The Vikings desperately needed to added a playmaker to the offense in draft, and even though they already had a solid RB in Chester Taylor and WR was an obvious need for the team AD was an instant impact player and quickly solidified himself as one of the best RB's in the NFL.

2. Sydney Rice, WR: B+ Rice was arguably the Vikings best WR in 07 and the offense really struggled when he went down late in the season due to injury. He's a nice combo of size and speed, who could have been the top WR in the 08 class if he'd stayed in school.

3. Marcus McCauley, CB: B- A great fit for the Tampa 2 with his combo of size and athletic ability, but still looked raw at times and still has a lot to learn before he's a starting caliber CB. He was able to fill in nicely when Winfield want down with an injury and no one doubts his potential.

4. Brian Robison, DE: C+ Had 4.5 sacks in a limited role as a rookie. He's got great speed and athletic ability, but his size is questionable. A lot of Vikings fans think he's going to be the pure pass rusher the team needs.

5. Aundrae Alison, WR: C Showed some flashes, but was somewhat inconsistent overall in limited roles as a rookie. 104 yard kick return for a TD was the highlight of his season but also had two other returns of more than 40 yards.

6. Rufus Alexander, LB: I Tore his ACL in the first preseason game of the season, but has the potential to be a solid backup LB who can help on special teams.

7. Tyler Thigpen, QB: F The F doesn't reflect his play but rather the Vikings failed attempt to sneak him onto the practice squad. He was picked up by KC after showing some promise early, and played a small amount because of injuries to the top two KC QB's last season. He's got a long way to go but many Vikings fans were disappointed with the way the Vikings handled the situation.

7. Chandler Williams, WR: F Now a member of the Miami Dolphins, but didn't play at all in 07, probably on a practice squad.
