    I find draft grades right after a draft to make no sense. Who knows what will happen. So I suggest we greade the team on 2005, where players have had 3 years:

    1 32(32) Logan Mankins OG FRESNO STATE
    3 20(84) Ellis Hobbs DB IOWA STATE
    3 36(100) Nick Kaczur OT TOLEDO
    4 32(133) James Sanders DB FRESNO STATE
    5 34(170) Ryan Claridge LB NEVADA LAS VEGAS
    7 16(230) Matt Cassel QB USC
    7 41(255) Andy Stokes TE WILLIAM PENN (IOWA)

    Looks like we got 3-4 starters with one pro bowler. Hard not to give at least a B+ if not higher (I'd go A if there was an impact player there), especially considering that unlike teams like San Diego, NE was last or late in every round. I did not factor in stockpiling drafts for the next year or players instead of draft picks (Moss, Welker situation).

    Baltimore's draft could have been excellent ... if they had kept Derek Anderson.

    FOR COMPARISON:

    I left out Bills and Jets because they had no #1

    MIAMI:

    1 2(2) Ronnie Brown RB AUBURN
    2 14(46) Matt Roth DE IOWA
    3 6(70) Channing Crowder LB FLORIDA
    4 3(104) Travis Daniels DB LSU
    5 26(162) Anthony Alabi OT TCU
    7 2(216) Kevin Vickerson DT MICHIGAN STATE

    PITTSBURGH:

    1 30(30) Heath Miller TE VIRGINIA
    2 30(62) Bryant McFadden DB FLORIDA STATE
    3 29(93) Trai Essex OT NORTHWESTERN
    4 30(131) Fred Gibson WR GEORGIA
    5 30(166) Rian Wallace LB TEMPLE
    6 30(204) Chris Kemoeatu OG UTAH
    7 14(228) Shaun Nua DE BYU
    7 30(244) Noah Herron RB NORTHWESTERN

    INDY:

    1 29(29) Marlin Jackson DB MICHIGAN
    2 28(60) Kelvin Hayden DB ILLINOIS
    3 28(92) Vincent Burns DE KENTUCKY
    4 28(129) Dylan Gandy OG TEXAS TECH
    4 34(135) Matt Giordano DB CALIFORNIA
    5 12(148) Jonathan Welsh DE WISCONSIN
    Philadelphia traded the 148th (5th) pick to Indianapolis for a 4th round selection in 2006.
    5 29(165) Rob Hunt C NORTH DAKOTA STATE
    5 37(173) Tyjuan Hagler LB CINCINNATI
    6 28(202) Dave Rayner PK MICHIGAN STATE
    7 29(243) Anthony Davis RB WISCONSIN

    SAN DIEGO

    1 12(12) Shawne Merriman LB MARYLAND
    1 28(28) Luis Castillo DT NORTHWESTERN
    2 29(61) Vincent Jackson WR NORTHERN COLORADO
    4 29(130) Darren Sproles RB KANSAS STATE
    5 28(164) Wesley Britt OT ALABAMA
    6 3(177) Wes Sims OG OKLAHOMA
    7 28(242) Scott Mruczkowski C BOWLING GREEN

    BALTIMORE:

    1 22(22) Mark Clayton WR OKLAHOMA
    2 21(53) Dan Cody LB OKLAHOMA
    2 32(64) Adam Terry OT SYRACUSE
    4 23(124) Jason Brown C NORTH CAROLINA
    5 22(158) Justin Green RB MONTANA
    6 39(213) Derek Anderson QB OREGON STATE
    7 20(234) Mike Smith LB TEXAS TECH

    Re: Draft Grades that MATTER ... after 3 years

    Chargers draft is crazy... Merriman is on pace for the hall-of-fame, Castillo is an All-pro, Jackson's potential is through the roof, Sproles is an amazing kick-returner and a great 3rd down back... we have Britt and from what I hear can be the next good lineman in New England if he gets his chance.
