KC got a D! Lots of reasons given but reaches were cited several times.

We.......drum roll please.......got an A-. Loved Derwin, liked Nwosu, felt Justin was a solid pick, fawned over Kyzir, LOVED Q at 5, didn't say anything about Cantrell (but I really like his tape) and loved Jackson's value as he was ranked in their 5th round.

I'll take it....on to camp
Everyone is fawning over the Donkey's draft: they did nothing for the Dline too. Gotsis is facing rape charges & Petko is Mebane's age.

If all of the draft picks make the team it has to be an A. We drafted players who all has a good chance to contribute.

There is a good chance all do make the 53.
Should improve our physicality, depth, and ST play.
Work hard rooks, make plays, and make us all take notice.

It's hard to give a grade immediately after the draft because so many things have to go right.

Draft grades are inherently flawed, but we like them anyway. (I’m guilty, too. I did SI’s draft grades this year and found the process surprisingly fun.) The biggest gripe about draft grades is that nobody really knows how draft picks will develop, and so how can we grade them before we know what they’ve become?

That’s immensely fair, but it’s also just part of the issue. The 2014 draft—where we now do know what has become of the players—still has loads of unknowns that should factor into the team’s “grade.” For example:

• Do we grade a team down if a player has battled injuries?

• Do we grade a team up if, say, a sixth-round pick becomes a star? If the team knew that player would be a star, it would have picked him before the sixth.

• What if the player’s team lost guys at supporting positions? How do we grade the pick of a running back whose offensive line gets hurt or decimated by cap-saving moves in his second season?

If a player busts, how do we know it’s because he was a bad pick? What if he had bad coaching? What if someone else at his position overachieved and stole his practice reps? What if the coaching staff changed and the new staff’s scheme didn’t fit the player? What if the player all the sudden stopped working hard once he got rich—how much responsibility does the GM hold for that? Some, sure (the GM should have done his homework, right?). But certainly not all the responsibility. When a good player becomes a bad player, nine times out of 10 it’s the player’s fault, not the GM’s or head coach’s.

It’s impossible to consider all these factors and then assign a grade. So, what you see below is more an examination of how a draft turned out, as opposed to how it was conducted. With big moves in Rounds 1 and 2, we can play the woulda/coulda/shoulda game (demeriting the Bills for trading up to get Sammy Watkins in a draft that also had Mike Evans, Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandin Cooks, for example), but most of the woulda/coulda/shouldas will be left on the table, where they belong.

This draft is like we had 9 picks.
