    Re: Mel Kiper Jr. Draft Grades

    Fox Sports was far less kind...ranking Minnesota 31 out of 32:

    31. Minnesota: They took Iowa linebacker Chad Greenway in the first round and many teams thought he didn't have the sudden burst necessary to be a big-time NFL linebacker. Then they took a sixth-round center Ryan Cook with the 51st overall choice and traded up to select Alabama State quarterback Tarvaris Jackson with the 64th pick. Most teams had Jackson in the 7th round. Georgia safety Greg Blue will be a special teams' demon, but doesn't have good coverage skills and may be moved to weakside linebacker. Finally, if they wanted to select Oregon's Kellen Clemens in the second round, they were out-foxed by the inexperienced Jets. New personnel chieftan Fran Foley has more headaches than quite a few biographical mistakes in his resume. Grade: D

    Re: Mel Kiper Jr. Draft Grades

    Fox Sports is clueless, anyway. But, regardless, draft grades are BS speculation performed by guys not good enough to get a job scouting talent in the NFL. I trust the coaches and front offices ability to scout and pick players they've actually seen and met more than a writer who's basing his opinion on a few scouting reports he's read, and his general opinion of where guys "should" have been selected.

    Yeah, the grades are pretty pointless. I've seen pretty much every grade given to us from different sources. I forget what I was watching but it was something on ESPN and we were given something like a 'B', but our new uniforms got an 'F'. Uniforms weren't even a topic, they just decided to crack on us some more I guess.

    Another thing, haven't the Patriots drafted a kicker two years in a row?

    Re: Mel Kiper Jr. Draft Grades

    see the last team on foxports list?

    32. Washington: The Redskins sort of skipped the draft and reached on Miami linebacker Rocky McIntosh, who was considered an injury risk by some teams. Joe Gibbs gave up a second-round pick next year and a third this year for Rocky. Gibbs said they took him because he liked the name and that they knew a lot about him. This is a franchise that cares more about spending in free-agency than it does working the draft. Grade: F

    Gibbs said: "I NEED A GUY NAMED ROCKY ON MY TEAM...ROCKY..yeah that name is kicka@@, all our other philosophies havent worked, lets try something new"
    hahahahaha
