Watch them cite a 49ers or Ravens draft.

I read something that the last pro bowl player that the Ravens drafted was Suggs. They have been missing lately. 5 starters and 2 pro bowlers is about as much as a team could hope for. I didn't even count Irving who will probably be starting this year and has been a solid backup.

49ers haven't exactly had great drafts. Good drafts sure...but they **** the bed hard with Jenkins.

Ravens...didn't make the playoffs last year.

Curious how the other top 5 teams did in 2011 minus their top pick .

I bet not very good hence the easy A+ for Denver

Yeah but every year the Ravens and 49ers tend to be highly graded for snagging guys that fell, were injured or were somehow steals and then a lot of fans wish we had their draft.

On paper they win just about every year though.

Its funny looking at the initial draft grades from 2011
http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/2...ch-team-043011

B+ for the chiefs and Eagles
Interesting. SF C+, Seattle D. Seattle's draft got Sherman in the 5th and Smith, the SB MVP, as their 2nd pick in the 7th round. And the C+ for the Broncos because Miller would be better off in a 3-4 D.

Hence why I say draft grades are pointless and a waste of time.

You hope to net 2 starters in each draft. We nailed 4 starters, plus Harris, plus 2 backup/rotation. Even if you take away Von - it's still an A draft, easily.

Chris Harris has the potential to be one of the top Broncos undrafted free agents of ALL TIME. He's not unseating Rod Smith, at #1, but he's going to be up there...
