I should Google what the draft grades were in years past the day after.  I'm sure back in 2005 Ted got down grades for taking Nick Collins.

Not only did he get down graded for Collins, folks here went nuts. I guess Ted and his ring got the last laugh on that one. I hope in a few years we are doing the same with this pick.

Nice to know that, like our K-12 public schools  :P all the picks are average or above average.

If we use the general rule that it takes 3 years to properly evaluate the success of a draft, here's the link to Pete Prisco's 1st round grades from 2012:

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/story/18843965/grades-2012-nfl-draft-round-1

Highlights of that list:

Brandon Weeden, CLE (F):  Well, he certainly nailed the grade on that one
Matt Kalil, MIN (A+):  He played pretty well as a rookie, but he's struggled quite a bit over the past couple of seasons.
Nick Perry, GB (C):  That's probably about right, and maybe even generous considering he hasn't been able to stay on the field and make much of an impact.
Stephon Gilmore & Dontari Poe were each a "C" grade as well and have turned into pretty solid players.  RGIII, Justin Blackmon, Dre Kirkpatrick and Matt Kalil (A's) and Morris Clairborne (B+) graded out well but haven't worked out for one reason or another at the NFL level.  Basically, these knee-jerk evaluations are pretty meaningless. 

I think the teams that do well drafting overall (Green Bay, Seattle, Pittsburgh) tend to always be graded at least a "B" for most of their picks based on reputation alone.

I think he was implying grade-inflation.  As in, What's the point of using the A-F grade scale if nobody gets anything below a C?
