  • Grade my draft

    I would post this on my normal board, but the league has mostly members from that board in I need an outsiders view.

    Anyways, here goes. It's a ten-team league, I drafted first. Emphasis on touchdowns.

    QB: Matt Hasselbeck, SEA
    RB: LaDainian Tomlinson, SD
    RB: Cedric Benson, CHI
    WR: Marvin Harison, IND
    WR: Anquan Boldin, ARI
    WR: Bernard Berrian, CHI
    TE: Randy McMichael, StL
    K: Jeff Wilkins, StL
    D: Chicago

    QB: Eli Manning, NYG
    QB: Chad Pennington, NYJ
    WR: Jerricho Cotchery, NYJ
    WR: Reggie Williams, JAX
    WR: Devery Henderson, NO
    RB: Jerious Norwood, ATL

    Scoring from normal is as follows:
    Passing Yards (50 yards per point)
    Passing Touchdowns (6)
    Interceptions (-2)
    Rushing Yards (20 yards per point)
    Rushing Touchdowns (6)
    Reception Yards (20 yards per point)
    Reception Touchdowns (6)

    Any help you can give me would be awesome.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd ditch Eli or Chad and pick up another RB. You're starting lineup is solid.

      RB still left in the FA pool:
      Warrick Dunn, ATL
      LenDale White, TEN
      Lamont Jordan, OAK
      Brandon Jackson, GB
      Chris Henry, TEN
      Vernand Morency, GB
      DeShaun Foster, CAR
      Kevin Jones, DET
      Dominic Rhodes, OAK
      Reuben Droughns, NYG

      I don't want one of a pair, and if I pick up half of a pair, I want the touchdown vulture. I could be tempted with he going to start in NY?

        I agree with dropping one of the 2 qb's you have on the bench. I'm not sold on Cedric Benson. So definitely pick up another RB. You need to take into consideration the bye weeks.

        I don't believe Droughns will be starting.

          I agree with the suggestion that you might want to drop a QB but only if you see a player still available that's worth taking.

          Of the backs on that list, Dunn might start, but he doesn't get the TDs. I've seen a number of people predicting Brandon Jackson to emerge as the top option in Green Bay. Plus his chief competitor for the job, Vernand Morency, is currently out with a knee injury.

            Droughns isn't going to be the touchdown vulture in NY since Brandon Jacobs is there. I too have heard about high hopes for Brandon Jackson

              My first draft is done. Wanna grade me?
              by RamFan_Til_I_Die
              Just finished up my first draft of the year. It's a keeper league so most of the top talent was gone. It's been going for 6 years and I've only been in two, so my keepers were a little weak.

              There are 12 teams in the league with the following positions needed:
              QB-1, RB-2, WR-2, TE-1, WR/RB-1, K-1, DB-2, DL-2, DB/DL-1, Bench-5

              So here's my draft:

              1) Ronnie Brown (Mia -RB) - Keeper

              2) Reggie Bush (NO - RB) - Keeper

              3) Travis Henry (Den - RB)

              4) Marc Bulger (StL - QB)

              5) Javon Walker (Den - WR)

              6) Donte' Stallworth (NE - WR)

              7) Tony Gonzalez (KC - TE)

              8) Randy Moss (NE - WR)

              9) Chris Chambers (Mia - WR)

              10) Jeff Wilkins (StL - K)

              11) Julius Peppers (Car - DL)

              12) London Fletcher (Was - DL)

              13) Gibril Wilson (NYG - DB)

              14) Kerry Rhodes (NYJ - DB)

              15) Antoine Winfield (Min - DB)

              16) Kevin Jones (Det - RB)

              17) Steve McNair (Bal - QB)

              18) Desmond Clark (Chi - TE)

              Not great IMO, but not bad either. What do you guys think?

              Rams Report Card: Coaching rates an F
              By BILL COATS | Posted: Sunday, October 24, 2010 6:32 pm

              TAMPA, Fla. -- Here are the grades for the St. Louis Rams after Sunday's 18-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:

              QUARTERBACK: Sam Bradford had an 89.6 passer rating, but that was misleading. Bradford did toss two TDs and wasn't intercepted. But he wasn't close to sharp, misfiring badly on several passes. He completed just half of his 26 passes and amassed only 126 yards through the air. GRADE: D+

              RUNNING BACKS: Steven Jackson averaged a solid 5.0 yards per carry and, with 110 yards, went over 100 for the third week in a row. He also surpassed Eric Dickerson as the Rams' career rushing leader. Kenneth Darby and Keith Toston added 26 yards on six carries. The Rams finished with season-high 161 yards on the ground. GRADE: A-

              RECEIVERS: On a day when Jackson was the team's leading receiver (35 yards on two catches), none of the Rams' wideouts or tight ends mustered more than 29 yards. TDs by WR Danny Amendola and TE Michael Hoomanawanui. GRADE: D

              OFFENSIVE LINE: Jackson had some room to operate and Bradford generally was well protected. A couple of false-start penalties on linemen in the fourth quarter hurt. GRADE: B

              DEFENSIVE LINE: Three more sacks -- all by linemen -- boosted the season total to 20. QB Josh Freeman was chased from the pocket several times. Run defense was good until rookie LeGarrette Blount got rolling in the third quarter. GRADE: B

              LINEBACKERS: James Laurinaitis dropped an interception on a drive that produced a Bucs FG. Larry Grant committed a 15-yard penalty on a drive that also resulted in a FG. Na'il Diggs had a couple of nice pass breakups. GRADE: C-

              SECONDARY: Banged-up unit actually was OK in coverage. Some nice tackling by rookie CB Jerome Murphy. Decent effort overall. GRADE: C+

              SPECIAL TEAMS: Donnie Jones dropped three of his four punts inside the 20, although he averaged just 33.3 yards net. Rams returns were fair, as was their coverage. GRADE: C

              COACHING: Hideous clock management at the end of the first half. Rams called two timeouts, hoping they'd get the ball back, but instead handed the Bucs more time to get a crucial FG. OC Pat Shurmur was aggressive and creative in the first half, predictable and uninspiring in the second. Where was WR Danario Alexander? DC Ken Flajole blitzed a fair amount, but they didn't produce much. Ultimately, all share culpability for a timid second half that spawned an ugly collapse against a mediocre opponent. GRADE: F

              Draft Ratings: Arizona No. 1, Rams No. 21
              by HUbison
              Let me start by saying that IMHO grading a draft 48 hours after its completion is tantamount to guessing someone's weight by smelling them....a quasi-educated guess, at best. Having said that, here's an article ranking all 32 drafts this year. Take it for what it's worth, but this gentleman wanted us to take Spears over Barron, if that tells you anything.

              Draft Ratings: Arizona No. 1, Rams No. 21
              By Chris Harry
              Orlando Sentinel NFL Writer

              Chris Harry, who covers the NFL for the Orlando Sentinel, ranked and graded all 32 teams in terms of their performance in the annual draft. His report follows, and below it are draft grades for the Rams from other writers around the country.

              1. Arizona ... Grade: A

              The buzz: Dennis Green always gas had a flair for working a draft. The Cardinals got a top-rated cornerback in Miami's Antrel Rolle, then struck for a potential home-run hitting tailback in the second round with J.J. Arrington, a 2,000-yard rusher at California. CB Eric Green and OLB Darryl Blackstock secured the best first-day haul by any team. Green added 330-pound G Elton Brown and productive ILB Lance Mitchell on the second day. Outstanding work.

              2. Minnesota ... Grade: A minus

              The buzz: The Vikings made us laugh during the 2002 and '03 drafts, but no one is chuckling at them this year. They had a conviction about the speed of WR Troy Williamson and went with it at No. 7 overall, then added pass-rushing specialist Erasmus James with a second choice in Round 1. Minnesota also added a nice guard prospect, Marcus Johnson, and a replacement for departed restricted free agent Brian Russell in Dustin Fox. Fourth-rounder Ciatrick Fason is the newest addition to a crowded (and talented) stable of running backs.

              3. Dallas ... Grade: A minus

              The buzz: The defense that ranked No. 1 in the league in '03 fell to 16th in '04. If the front four was a problem, it shouldn't be anymore. Drafting bookend ends Demarcus Ware and Marcus Spears in the first round could end up being a nightmare for quarterbacks in the NFC East for years to come. The Cowboys added a fast linebacker, Kevin Burnett, in the second and a power running back, Marion Barber III, in the third. They also got another end, Chris Canty, who probably could have gone higher.

              4. Detroit ... Grade: B +

              The buzz: You have to wonder about taking a wide receiver with a top-10 choice for the third year in a row, especially with playmakers needed on defense. Then again, maybe the Lions know something we don't about the two broken collarbones incurred by '03 first-rounder Charles Rogers. Plus, it's hard to knock picking a guy as productive as Mike Williams was in two years at USC. Speaking of the Trojans, DT Shaun Cody was a steal in the second round and Stanford...

              Third Round Should Provide Starting Caliber Player For Rams
              by Barry Waller
              Even if the Rams don't end up adding another third rounder after a deal down, something that would not surprise in the least, they should get a far better player at #75, even if they don't deal up a bit, using one of the extra late picks they now have.

              I would expect after the first few picks, the Rams will target a guy filling a remaining need and go after him aggressively in the third. even moving up to get it done.

              I would expect that at the very least, before going into round three, the Rams have added a tackle, a safety, and at least one of these; CB, LB, WR, G

              Whatever they have not added will be the second big focus in round three, AFTER deciding if a QB has fallen with second round grades is a guy they want to take istead of a starting need.

              Adding an extra third or second rounder would make that decision far easier.

              Based on my own board, which obviously starts getting a lot of changes from 64 to 100, here are some guys I see being there in early round three. The very talented depth here at RB might also factor in, as round three will no doubt feature a run on backs.

              Grades are for level of talent in 3rd at position

              QB - Grade B - Murray, Thomas, Fales
              RB - Grade A+ - Carey (love this guy), Archer, D. Thomas, A. Williams, Seastrunk, West , Sims.
              WR -Grade A -M. Bryant, D. Moncrief, B. Coleman, J. Abbredaris, B. Ellington.
              TE - Grade C - Niklas, Fiedorowicz
              T - Grade B - Hurst, A. Richardson, Mewhort, Fleming
              G - Grade B - Dozier, C. Richardson, Watt, Steen
              C - Grade A - Richberg, Swanson
              DE - Grade D - Jeffcoat, K. Martin
              DT - Grade B - Sutton, Easley (inj), McCullers, D. Jones, A. Johnson
              4-3 OLB - Grade D - T. Smith
              ILB - Grade B -Borland, Smallwood, P. Brown
              CB- Grade B+ - E. Gaines, P. Gaines, Purifory,
              S - Grade C+ - D. Bailey, C. Loston, T. Brooks, A. Dixon
