Last year's draft grades

We all know that it's pointless to judge a draft the day after, yet the "experts" do so, as Pete Prisco writes, because fans love to read them:

One of the comments left by a reader linked to Prisco's 2008 draft grades:

This should further drive home the point that anything we read about the Titans' draft picks today doesn't amount to squat.  A few bits and pieces of last year's profound prognostications from Prisco.  Be sure to check out the caption under Crazy Legs' photo.

Titans


best pick: Lavelle Hawkins.  He knows how to get open.

[Note by DoofusOfErasmus, 04/27/09 11:54 AM EDT ]
Yeah, he was so open that he caught 7 passes for 68 yards.

most questionable pick: Chris JohnsonThe Titans had more pressing needs.

 

Enough said.  But take a look at these:

 

Ravens

Questionable move: Trading up to get quarterback Joe Flacco. They probably could have stayed at 26 and still landed him. Plus, Brian Brohm and Chad Henne were better options.

 

Overall grade: C. They reached for Flacco and I didn't really like the pick of Ray Rice in the second round.

 

Falcons

Questionable move: Taking Matt Ryan third overall. If Dorsey goes on to be a star and Ryan isn't the franchise passer they expect, look out.

 

Overall grade: B. I wouldn't have selected Ryan third overall, but they needed a passer. I get it. The rest of the draft was very good.

 

It's like picking stocks by having monkeys throw darts.
