    I will say B

    Dobson and Collins i really like. Filled those holes

    Logan is a very safe pick at CB...the last guy is a no name so who knows

    Come on, no 'love' for the 2007 Draft? We got Brandon Meriweather with that gem!

    Although grading a draft in the middle of a draft is a bit of an useless exercise, I would probably give them about a B. Prior to the last pick, I would have given them an A-/B+. I like their first three picks. The fourth was a head scratcher.

    Think about this: the head scratcher pick can't be a head scratcher! BB always makes that one pick that makes you question his sanity!

    I voted B. Loved the trade down and am pleased but not jumping for joy with adding a pass rusher, a tall receiver, and some secondary depth. Very solid though unspectacular draft thus far.

    I don't see this as an F draft, but who really considers this an A draft. I will say low B. We picked up some needs, but could've got better players.

    ???

    The defensive backs don't seem to be better than what we have.

    I guess that Ryan will replace Ebner on the roster.

    For the first time I see 3rd rounders who might not even be good enough to make the team.
    ==================

    BTW, I do like Collins and Dobson.

    ======

    I can't rate this better than a C. The trade was an almost exactly even trade. We got almost exact value for Collins and Dobson. Collins was picked 52 and rated the 49th best player by Mayock. Dobson was picked 59 and was rated the 60th best player.

    Ryan was rated a clear 4th rounder. That's not terrible at 83, but it isn't great either. Obviously, there was a run on defensive backs. Ryan does project to be a backup safety and corner.

    I haven't a clue with regard to Harmon.

    I gave them a D grade. Love the Dobson pick, though better receivers or higher rated receivers were out there. The Collins pick, meh. Amazing measurables, no motor. Takes tons of plays off, not self-motivated. 3rd round, typical throw away round. Let all the studs be picked instead of trading up to grab one. Not a fan of this draft.

    I have seen people rate Ryan as high as a second or potentially a first. All depends on who who listen to.

    We were forewarned. Caserio and Kraft said that there weren't many starters in this draft.

    fine :)

    for the record, i dont mind Collins or Dobson but i think better players were on the board and they still could have had these guys in later rounds. I dont get the last two picks.

    A because Jamie Collins is a future all star. Blowing the 91st pick on a stiff when most 91st picks are stiffs doesn't change that.

    I'd give them an A --- but that's mostly to keep them on the football field

    Haven't followed the draft much this year, but

    Big, physical vertical threat WR....check
    Hard-hitting enforcer-type Safety....check

    The rest is gravy. I'm good. (Thank you BB)

    As a neutral observer I would give it a B- and only because I know nothing about Duron Harmon and regardless of how good he ends up being, I think he could have absolutely been selected with your pick at #102 (and frankly maybe even at #226).

    Of course, Belichick is much more in tune with how much behind the scenes interest Harmon was getting, so who knows? So it wasn't the player as much as the possible reach there that is the demerit, imo.

    I like Collins. And love Dobson where you got him. And Logan Ryan is also very solid. Those picks and a non-reach for the 4th pick and the draft gets a B+/A- from me. The reach for Harmon makes it a B- as it stands, imo.

    Maybe could have traded back (didn't Miami trade up shortly after?) from the Harmon spot and picked up another late rounder and still got him and kept the #102 pick. Anyway, the draft was nowhere close to a disaster from where I am sitting.

    I would give this year draft a C, my mini break down.

    Positives:
    + Got lots of Picks
    + Addressed major needs and added depth to it

    Negatives:
    - No starters, my major concern.
    - No 1st round stud
    - Too many reaches

    at first when they made the first two picks i was a meh then i started watching a couple more videos and reports since i didnt know much and i started to like it a lot more then i liked the ryan pick and then 91 where jesse williams, quinton patton, khaseem greene and others were sitting waiting for us to take them so we take duron hopefully he becomes a good player we will see

    Well, we didn't agree much on the Ravens defense, but our analysis of the Pats' draft so far is pretty much the same.
