McKenzie just said that it takes three seasons to know what you've got. Since everyone is bored beyond reason waiting for the draft, lets take a look back and grade the 2011 draft. Give me a number grade, 1-10, with 1 being awful and 10 being magnificent.
Well, what do we have?
2. Stefen Wisniewski, C, Penn State
3a. DeMarcus Van ****, CB, Miami
3b. Joseph Barksdale, T, LSU
4a. Chimdi Chekwa, CB, Ohio State
4b. Taiwan Jones, RB, Eastern Washington
5. Denarius Moore, WR, Tennessee
6. Richard Gordon, TE Miami
7. David Ausberry, WR, USC
We traded away the #17 pick in round one in the Richard Seymour deal.
We traded 2011 seventh round pick (#219-Malcolm Williams), 2012 second round pick (#48-Tavon Wilson) to Patriots for 2011 third round pick (#92-Joseph Barksdale), 2011 fourth round pick (#125-Taiwan Jones)....could have had Russell Wilson or Nick Foles at #48 in 2012.
Al's last draft was not a good one. We got a pretty good offensive lineman, a very good special teams player, a terrible corner, a question mark at wide receiver and a bigger question mark at TE. Frankly, by this time next year, we might not have anything to show for this draft, other than Jones....who is strictly a special teams guy, albeit a very good one.
Big fat F....I'd give it a 3, at best.
What do you guys think?
