        Been like that for years now. JA's formerly awesome mid round magic has totally worn off and has become a running joke.

              Texans

              1. Brian Cushing - suspended 4 games. Beasting in New Jersey Gym as I type.

              2. Conner Barwin - dislocated ankle in 1st game against the colts. Out for the season. Was a situational pass rusher on 3rd downs.

              3. Antoine Caldwell - starting right guard.

              4. Glover Quinn - starting CB. Best corner on team, but thats not saying much.

              4. Anthony Hill - IR

              5. James Casey - 3rd string TE. Plays special teams.

              6. Brice McCain - nickel corner.

              7 Troy Nolan - backup FS

              UDFA Arian Foster - starting RB. 4 games as a starter (final 2 games of 2009 season) 516 yards rushing. Jury still out but looks like a franchise back so far.

              After Cushing returns from suspension 4 starters from 2009 Draft Class, not bad by GM Rick Smith.

                  New York Jets:

                  1st round- QB Mark Sanchez(Struggled year 1 although he came on strong to end December and January. When given the freedom to roll in the offense, as evident by last week vs NE, he really has shown great ability. He had a conservative game 1 and a very strong game 2 so I can't say what he is thus far in year 2 but he has the potential and promise to make this pick a good one thus far. Besides he led the team to a AFC Title game at QB so considering what we gave up to CLE, not bad Grade B)

                  3rd round- RB Shonn Greene(Early part of last year he was inactive and very rarely saw time but during the middle of the season and especially at the end of the season, Greene began to feel it. He is a force to try and bring down and is like a bowling ball when raming at defenses. I wish he can pick up blitzes better and also not fumble and can stay durable/catch the ball crisper but that AFC playoff run Greene had vs CIN and SD were game-changers for the team. This year he hasn't exactly lit things up and Tomlinson has been the better back of the two but I am not ready to give up on Greene. I think he is going to be a great 3rd down back on running plays and while he may not be that elite RB that fantasy football had hoped, he can be a quality change of pace back. Maybe 2007 Brandon Jacobs esque. Grade- B)

                  6th round- OG Matt Slauson(Mostly inactive/depth year 1 but with the shitfest that is Alan Faneca gone, Slauson defeated OT Vlad Ducasse for the starting LG spot and has battled and held his own after 2 games. Game 1 he had his ups and downs....well mainly the down was when Ngata just spanked him and killed Sanchez in the 4th. However, I think Slauson did great vs NE and was strong in the rush blocking part. He is playing between 2 pro bowlers in D'Brick and Mangold though so it might be a big help but anytime you can get a 6th round starter on your team, that kicks ass. Grade- B)

                  UDFA: LB Jamal Westerman(Been good and respectable when given his chances on the defense. Had a great game week 17 vs CIN even though that game for the Bengals was an essential preseason game. Haven't seen a whole lot of Westerman but he has been a quality rotational/depth player at the LB spot. Grade- B)

                  3 starters from this class. Not bad at all. All guys get Grade B's from me so it makes this a respectable draft class. Not Revis/Harris godly as we did the same "Quality over Quantity" thought process but still its been good.

                    Detroit Lions

                    1. Matt Stafford: Legit Franchise QB. Had some ups and downs last year, but he has "IT". He reminds me of Farve alot. Will be one of the best QB's in the league if Detroit does a better job protecting him. A


                    2. Brandon Pettigrew: Should've picked Oher, but Pettigrew is a good TE, and will be nice weapon for staff once he comes back from his shoulder injury. B

                    3. Louis Delmas: ******* stud, only thing I don't like has been the nagging injuries he's gotten this year. A+


                    4. DeAndre Levy : Hated this pick when it happened, but Levy has turned into a starter for this team, and could turn into a good player. Like the last three, he's also been bit with the injury bug this season. B

                    5.Derrick Williams : This guy is like the anti-levy for me. I loved the pick, but this guy hasn't done ****. F

                    6. Sammie Lee Hill: Loved this pick, Sammie is raw, but he's started at times. Solid player. B

                    7. Aaron Brown : Speedy Return guy, still on the team. C-

                    8. Lydon Murtha : On the Dolphins now, he's a project. F

                    9. Zack Follett : a Starter this seasom. He's a fan-favorite, but I'm not too high on him. He's a good person and teammate though. B-

                    10. Dan Gronkowski : on the broncos. D

                      When "not that bad" describes the 2nd best pick of your entire draft class, I think it's a problem....

                        Whoops. Gilbert was a cult hero on the boards pre-draft. Has anyone picked him up?
                        I also liked Iglesias and Marcus Freeman so I can't blame the Bears GM..... these things are crapshoots sometimes.

                          I think the Jets pick him up. And it was actually hailed as a pretty good draft by most people I read. Seemed like they just sat back and collected some guys a lot of people projected to go higher......didn't work out.
