NFL Draft

Grading drafts right after they are concluded leads to trouble.

But I do it anyway.

It's a tough exercise when you consider the failure rate of draft picks. Even the teams have no idea.

Flip a coin, right? That might seem a bit harsh, considering the money spent on the evaluation process, but it's not that far from reality. That's why these knee-jerk grades are tough to do, and leave all of us who do them open to ridicule three years later.

That's the proper time needed to truly grade a draft, but since my bosses love these fast grades, and you all seem to like them, I present to you my 2016 NFL Draft Grades.

No team got an F. Call me Mr. Softy.
