Are they including Rodney Hudson and Rashard Lawrence in their grades? With those two included, it should be a solid B, if not a B+.

That chart has to exist for the past few years. Anyone have it?

If you include Hudson, it is an A. I am sure it was not done.

You can't, because Hudson wasn't drafted. We had to waste draft capital to firm up a position that Keim had let go to ruination. You can certainly view it as a good trade--I believe it was a great trade--but it also depleted our draft capital and doesn't make Keim's DRAFT better.

Assets are there to be used.

I missed a 3rd rd pick and then thought of Hudson in pass protect and punching holes for Conner et al.

I missed a 4th rd pick until I thought of Dhop and then the trade-up for next year's fourth for a potential starting CB.

And KEIM didn't neglect the centre position: Shipley, Cole, Gaillard - but we can all be dissatisfied with the result.

It's why draft grades are really quite silly. The only certain use of our draft capital is the all pro center. Everything else is just self affirming bias.

Absolutely, and I'm glad he used a 3rd on Hudson. It doesn't improve the DRAFT class, however, which is what grading is being discussed.

Keim neglected the position by producing a bad result, the same as he did with the WR position.

It’s a bit like judging a college freshman based on their grades in high school. Sure there are still grades, but there’s also, you know, other stuff.

That was doomed from the beginning but I felt compelled to keep typing.
