    Not a lot of names that I know and I felt that there were options in the middle rounds that were better than what was chosen. What do I know though, this is their jobs and I'm just a fan so they must be much more informed than me. I'll give it a C now with hope that Latimer, Barrow, and Roby become good starters.

    C+, I was neither overwhelmed or underwhelmed, I was just whelmed.

    I like many of you thought this was average draft class at best. I'm not sure how much we improved our team after the draft a little I guess. This draft gets C+ for me. Not great or good but average overall.

    Probably a C.

    Some of the picks will help alot on ST's.

    I like Roby, Schofield and Latimer.

    Barrow seems interesting the more you look into him.

    Not sure other than Roby, anyone makes a big impact this year...

    Quoted for truth. I like how it started with Roby and Latimer, but then it kind of tailed off for me...

    I think for where we drafted from, a B+ would be reasonable. Robey might be the steal of the draft. If he had came out last season he may have been a top 10 pick.

    B

    I think Roby will be a solid No. 2 with the potential of being a #1.

    I think the same goes with Latimer, love his upside.

    Don't know much about Schofield but I trust Elway.

    People are just irked today because there are many names we didn't draft today that WE think would be better but we have no clue.

    Anyone who thinks we are going to be able to draft 3-5 immediate impact players drafting at 31 is on crack. We got two guys for sure that should be long term solutions at their respective position.

    Before we add udfa's I am giving it a B+. The first 4 picks were really good 6th and 7th rounders are players I have never heard of so I will trust the scouts on those ones.

    More or less I agree with this.
    I'd say a C but the potential is a B+ assuming Roby, Schofield, and Latimer live up to the potential they have.

    It was just an average draft and in my opinion, as a whole this years draft wasn't really much.

    Well Roby is as good of a "pure" corner as we would have gotten and despite be wanting McGill ild have to give that an A

    Latimer was a great pickup though hes a bit of a character concern with his lack of effort and his injury it wasnt so bad normally give this pick a B but considering he was the best player available with his measurables A

    Schofield was probably the 2nd most overrated OT in the draft he has great feet but lacks muscle or the leg power to support muscle D (Ild say F but at least he wasnt drafted where the scouts put him)

    Besides Bradford IMO Barrow has the highest potential to be a steal at ILB A

    Paradis could have been so many other players and as someone who wont get drafted this pick just was odd to me F

    Nelson is a good ST upgrade though Askew may have been better C (not great but not bad)

    D if we had not taken an OC late would have been lower.

    While I'm all for building long term, sometimes you have to get those instant starters on day one and two.

    I know that the team is stocked with players
    So getting instant starters is hard

    But we passed on the best OGs (take your best pick) to fill a hole for the next 13 years if they want to resign the guy.

    Same goes for OC. In the second.

    Instead we got a nickel (maybe) if not dime CB, and a 4-5 WR. Will not go last those two players other than to say the rest will not be impact players this year or even on the team 3 years from now.

    Very underwhelmed.
