    Re: Looking back, how would you rate last yearís draft?

    At the time I thought we have a very good draft, now Iím not so sure. TEís have not produced, neither can block. Wasted a fifth on a guy that canít return kicks and we have looked everywhere and have tried everyone.

    Hill was a good first and Mark Setterstrom was a good seventh. Klop Iím just not sure why he has not been used more in the passing game. Victor Adeyanju plays well against the run, but cant pass rush; we still need a pass rushing DE. Jon Alston missed a lot of time in the preseason due to school, but he still has not played, I have to ask why?

    Re: Looking back, how would you rate last yearís draft?

    Breaking it down pick by pick...

    ROUND ONE
    TYE HILL, CB, CLEMSON
    Stats: 33 tackles, 3 INTs
    Notes: Hill has been inserted into the starting line-up due to injury, moving him up from his nickel position. He's responded fairly well, and despite some rookie missteps, looks like he's going to be a player.
    Grade: B+


    ROUND TWO
    JOE KLOPFENSTEIN, TE, COLORADO
    Stats: 15 rec, 191 yards, 1 TD
    Notes: Klop has been used sparingly in Linehan's offense, but when called upon as a pass catcher, he has delivered. Joe however needs improvement as an in-line blocker.
    Grade: C+


    ROUND THREE
    CLAUDE WROTEN, DT, LSU
    Stats: 9 tackles
    Notes: Has only seen action in seven games. Has shown flashes of ability when on the field, and is seeing time at defensive end due to lack of depth there. Hasn't had a huge impact though.
    Grade: C

    JON ALSTON, OLB/SS, STANFORD
    Stats: None
    Notes: After missing a significant portion of offseason activities, Alston hasn't played a single game for the Rams this year. How can this be anything but a disappointment?
    Grade: D

    DOMINIQUE BYRD, TE, USC
    Stats: None
    Notes: Byrd has yet to beat out Aaron Walker as the #2 tight end this year, and has been inactive for nine games this season. Recently was in trouble with the law for a bar encounter.
    Grade: F


    ROUND FOUR
    VICTOR ADEYANJU, DE, INDIANA
    Stats: 34 tackles, 1 sack, 1 defensive touchdown
    Notes: Forced into the line-up after Anthony Hargrove pulled a David Blaine with his disappearing act. Has played admirably for a rookie but needs to improve as a pass rusher.
    Grade: B-


    ROUND FIVE
    MARQUES HAGANS, WR, VIRGINIA
    Stats: None
    Notes: After being unable to win a return job in camp and preseason, Hagans was cut and added to the practice squad.
    Grade: D-


    ROUND SEVEN
    TIM MCGARIGLE, ILB, NORTHWESTERN
    Stats: None
    Notes: Tim couldn't beat out Jamal Brooks for the back-up MLB spot, was cut, and then signed to the practice squad.
    Grade: D-

    MARK SETTERSTROM, G, MINNESOTA
    Stats: N/A
    Notes: Setterstrom worked his way onto the field due to injury and played well. He should continue to see time in the rotation, especially if Goldberg has to give an injured Barron a break.
    Grade: C

    TONY PALMER, G, MISSOURI
    Stats: N/A
    Notes: Released from the team and claimed off waivers by the Packers.
    Grade: F
    Overall, I'd probably lean towards a mid to low C. Hill, Klop, and Adeyanju have been the only rookies to really make any sort of regular contributions on this team. Wroten is getting a very minimal piece of the pie, Setterstrom has seen minimal action, whereas Alston, Byrd, Hagans, McGarigle, and Palmer have really brought nothing to the table for us thus far.

    Right now I would say a C- but these things really take 3-4 years before you know for sure. The grade could go down or up in that time.
