Ted Thompson made a left turn into evil toward the end of this draft. Not schizo, but it broke bad after ol’ Double T dealt up. Let’s grade it out and dig deeper.
Here’s one last look at Day 1…
3) Jermichael Finley (TE-Texas): B+ Admittedly, it’s a speculative play, but there’s a lot to like here. You can’t hate the pick for the slot.
4a) Jeremy Thompson (DE-Wake Forest): B- In shorts, he’s spectacular. On the field he can be. If the light goes all the way on?
4b) Josh Sitton (T-Central Florida): C+ He doesn’t have to bring anything to the table this year, but there’s something to like here.
5) Breno Giacomini (T-Louisville): F He’s a hard worker with a mean streak, but at this point, he brings little tangible to the table. If he’s on the roster, I will be surprised.
7a) Matt Flynn (QB-LSU): B+ He’s a better prospect than Brian Brohm. Sincerely.
7b) Brett Swain (WR-San Diego State): F Clearly, drafting a guy nobody’s heard of who needs two season ending injuries to even contend for a roster spot on this team is a good decision.
Day 1 Final Grade: B-
Day 2 Final Grade: D+ (Turning a mid 4th round pick into two wastes and a 3rd string quarterback, even if it’s one I like? That was stupid.)
Overall Draft Grade: C. (It’ll probably improve, but this day’s left a really sour taste in my mouth.)
Yeah. That’s all the draft talk you’re gonna get from me. I might return later.
But I’m done talking draft.
