Jacksonville Jaguars
OVERALL GRADE: C-

Round 1, Pick 21: MATT JONEZZZ - F. No, check that. F-. You know what? Screw it. I give the Armadillo a Q.
Round 2, Pick 52: Khalif Barnes - Considering that we could have picked him in the first round and no one would have batted an eyelash, a good pick. Has flashed tons of potential in his time here, but has some issues with being consistent and has a public and controvercial off-the-field incident bi-annually. B-
Round 3, Pick 87: Scott Starks. One of the 10 fastest men in the NFL, I'm sure. Couldn't win the nickel spot to save his life and is relegated to being a special teams ace. D+
Round 4, Pick 127: Alvin Pearman. Solid third down back until we drafted Maurice. We got a draft pick for him when we traded him. C
Round 5, Pick 157: Gerald Sensabaugh. Special teams ace, third safety, super-athletic starter. Gerald has worn many masks during his time here, but he's always produced. B
Round 6, Pick 185: Chad Owens. You know what? I changed my mind. Matt Jones just gets an F. This his a reference point so you can get the extent of how worthless Owens was. The Hawaiian Muffer gets a K.
Round 6, Pick 194: Pat has stuck around on the roster this entire time. That's a heck of an accomplishment for a round 6 guy who is nothing special. Jack loves him. I suppose that's enough. B-
Round 7, Pick 237: Chris Roberson. He stuck around for a while but kept getting injured. D-.

All in all... not a very productive draft. Khalif Barnes, Gerald Sensabaugh and not much else.

This is starting to get redundant.

2003 Colts Draft

1 24 Dallas Clark TE Iowa
2 58 Mike Doss SS Ohio State
3 90 Donald Strickland FS Colorado
4 122 Steve Sciullo G Marshall
5 138 Robert Mathis DE Alabama A&M
5 162 Keyon Whiteside LB Tennessee
6 198 Cato June DB Michigan
6 208 Makoa Freitas

Clark has turned into a key puzzle of the Colts offense. I think he is a bit overatted, but his importance in the last couple of years can't be understated. He can play from the TE spot, slot, or even at split end. Seems to have a problem staying healthy or at least keeping himself safe on the field. Kudos to Bill Polian, he does not miss on 1st round picks.

Doss never quite lived up to expectations and was released and signed with the Vikings following the Super Bowl win. He did ok, but injuries and an off the field incident were the key reasons to his release.

Strickland couldn't stay healthy. He just resigned with the 49ers. Scuillo was thought to be a future starter at guard then fell out of favor with the coaching staff. He was released only after a year or two and signed with Philly.

Robert Mathis turned out to be the real late round steal. He was viewed to be an OLB by many clubs cause he is in the 235/240 lb range. Teamed up with Freeny, they have become a top 5 DE rushing duo in the league. Mathis was resigned to a large deal.

Whiteside was cut I believe after training camp or during the season and hovered on the practice squad.

June was a college saftey turned into WLB who excelled in coverage and not so much on run D. Did have one Pro Bowl year. Colts did not offer to resign him, now with Tampa.

Four players of this draft started significant number of games for the Colts with Clark and Mathis still on the team, both resigned to big contracts. So they got four starters to play for four years, and were able to keep two of them after their rookie contracts expired. I call this draft like the 2005, a good one for the Colts.

Titans
1) CB Andre Woolfolk - another Floyd Reese project pick...bust
2) WR Tyrone Calico - major potential, but blew out both knees in his second year, and was never the same. Cut in 2006.
3) RB Chris Brown - talented but fragile. Recently signed with the Texans.
4) DT Rien Long - former Outland trophy winner progressed nicely in his first three years, but a ruptured Achilles', a severe staph infection, and a horrific car accident have likely ended his career.
5) S Donnie Nickey - ST specialist, not currently on a roster
7) OT Todd Williams - spent a couple years on the roster, never played.

Not a single 2003 draftee left on the roster. Overall grade: D

1)Michael Haynes DE Penn State - F
- Had 5.5 sacks in 3 seasons. Once Ogun came in, he was really phased out. Says he is on the Jets now
1b) Rex Grossman QB Florida - C
-I dont like him, but he is really good when he has time in the pocket...problem is that if he doesnt, he is not that good
2) Charles Tillman CB Louisiana-Lafayette - A
-Starting CB for us, and will be for quite a long time. Very solid player
3) Lance Briggs OLB Arizona - A+++
-All Pro. Nuff said.
4)100 Todd Johnson DB Florida - C
-Was a good backup/special teamer, and was a decent player when he got in
4)Ian Scott DT Florida B
- I thought he was really underrated when he played for us, always seemed to get an arm up, and made some heads up plays. Eagles grabbed him in FA, and I think they cut him though.
5) Bobby Wade WR Arizona - C
- Good KR/PR for us, and had some decent hands when we had no recievers. I think is doing decent in Minny
5) Justin Gage WR Missouri - C
-I had always liked him, but never really got to see the field that much/never was much of an option. Doing well in TN now
5) Tron LaFavor DT Florida
-who?
6) Joe Odom LB Purdue - D
-Backup, Still on team?
6) Brock Forsey RB Boise State - D
-Had a 100yrd game, not on the team anymore, still in league?
7) Bryan Anderson G Pittsburgh - F?
-Who?

Overall: B
We landed 2 players who have made huge impacts on games for us, and are both really good players. Most of the rest arent even on the team anymore though

This is actually a good time to do this, these players have had 3 years in the league.

29) CB Marlin Jackson - 1st year starter in 2007, played very well in that role and in the nickel role before that. Most famous for his play in the 2006 AFC Championship Game. To quote Bob Lamey, "INTERCEPTION! MARLIN JACKSON! WE'RE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL! WE'RE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL!" Personally I've wondered for some time if the Colts would've taken Luis Castillo with this pick had he not been taken with the pick immediately before it, but Marlin has worked out for the Colts, so I like the move.

Grade: B

60) CB Kelvin Hayden - Another 1st year starter in 2007, Hayden got limited oppurtunites before the 2007 season, his biggest and most famous of course being his game sealing pick-6 in Super Bowl XLI after Nick Harper went down. This was the most panned pick of the 2005 draft, for the Colts at least, and it goes to show that Polian knows what he's doing. Once again, I wonder if Jonathan Babineaux would've been the pick had he not been taken the pick before, but really we'll never know.

Grade: B

92) "DT" Vincent "Sweet Pea" Burns - I don't remember if he was cut in 05 or 06, but he didn't have a very long NFL career, and he was miscast with the Colts.

Grade: F

129) OG Dylan Gandy - Gandy was impressive in 2006 as a starting guard for most of the season, but it seems the Colts have decided to go in a different direction with him, having him backup Pro-Bowl C Jeff Saturday, and possibly developing him to take over the position. Then again, with starting guard Jake Scott leaving via FA this offseason, Gandy could get another shot at a starting job.

Grade: C+

135) S Matt Giordano - Has been an excellent backup and decent special teamer for the Colts since being drafted. He seems to be incredibly fast, which helps him in both of his roles.

Grade: C

148) DE Jonathan Welsh - Cut shortly after joining the team.

Grade: F

165) C Robert Hunt - Camp cut that season, no longer in the league.

Grade: F

173) LB Tyjuan Hagler - After missing all of the 2005 season with a sports hernia, Tyjuan Hagler has been nothing short of a late round gem for the Colts. He played well in a backup/special teams role in 2006, and in 2007 he was able to earn the starting SLB job after incumbent starter Rob Morris went down for the season, and has shown a lot of promise there.

Grade: B+

202) K Dave Rayner - Cut by the Colts in camp that season, but found a job later with the Packers, and now with the Dolphins, and has had a decent year.

Grade: D+

243) RB Anthony Davis - He was going to be a KR and 3rd RB, but didn't show much in either role and was cut in camp.

Grade: F

Overall Draft Grade: B/B+

While the Colts didn't produce a superstar from this draft, they've already produced 3 starters from it, could have a 4th in Dylan Gandy, and produced a very quality backup in Giordano. This is a very successful draft for any team.

He gets graded down because he sucked his rookie year, and he'll only have played two seasons with the Titans.

Yeah, he does.

Because a top 5 WR with Braylon's kind of talent and impact GREATLY outweighs missed 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th rounds pick in the grand scheme of things. At that point in the draft, you're hoping those kind of players become quality depth players. Anything more is a huge bonus.

For someone who is on his way to becoming one of the, if not the, best WR in team history, you grade that pick on a completely different level than the others. You get a player like that and your draft as a whole is a huge success. That's the bottom line.

1) Andre Woolfolk- F (God Awful)
2) Tyrone Calico- D (Little production from rookie year kept him from being an F)
3) Chris Brown- C+ (Had some good seasons, but injuries and fumbling held him back)
4) Rien Long- D
5) Donnie Nickey- C
7) Todd Williams- F-

Not a good draft at all. Overall a D. Only saving graces were Chris Brown and Donnie Nickey on Special Teams.

Jets:

1. DT Dewane Robertson - D
Played well in his first season (probably due to playing next to Jason Ferguson) but has sucked since then. Also, our medical staff completely wiffed on his health concerns.

2. LB Victor Hobson - C
Decent player but never lived up to expectations. Started for a while but is now a free agent (has yet to be signed as far as I know).

3. FB BJ Askew - D
Another decent player but was never used properly.

5. DB Derek Pagel - F
Who?

5. DE Matt Walters - F
Who?

6. QB Brooks Bollinger - C
Solid contributor for a backup but is really nothing more than a #3. Was a great trading chip for us.

7. OT Dave Yovanovits - F
Who?

Overall: F

2. K Mike Nugent - C
He's been great for us... but... a kicker?

2. CB Justin Miller - B
One of the best returners in the league but a terrible cornerback. Hopefully he can take some of his raw talent and become a solid DB this season after coming off the IR.

3. DT Sione Pouha - B
Hadn't shown much until last season but he has really come on as a solid contributor. He should be a big part of our DL rotation this season and has NT potential. Great run-stuffer in obvious running situations.

4. S Kerry Rhodes - A++
One of the best safeties in the NFL.

5. DB Andre Maddox - F
I have no idea where he is now, if anywhere.

6. Cedric Houston - B
Health problems pushed him down this far but he was a very solid player when given the chance. Stepped in extremely well for Curtis Martin when given the call. Unfortunately he decided to retire.

6. TE Joel Dreessen - F
No longer with the team.

7. WR Harry Williams - F
No longer with the team.

Overall: Mike Nugent is awesome (but still... a kicker?), Justin Miller still has buttloads of potential and is one of the best returners in the league, Sione Pouha is a big sleeper, and Kerry Rhodes is arguably a top-5 safety in the NFL. I give the entire draft a B+.

grade: F

Rd.2 Anthony Adams DT:
After 4 mediocre years he moved onto Chicago, we were'nt upset
grade: D

Rd.3 Andrew Williams DE:
Undersized and out of the league, Career stats of 3 games started, 12 tackles
grade: F

Rd.4 Brandon Lloyd WR:
Prima dona cry baby who Redskins actually traded for (lol). Wont go over the middle and shy's away for the ball (see you tube)
grade: D+ (for draft picks)

Rd.5 Aaron Walker TE:
2 years 18 receptions 1 TD, moved to St Louis for 7 catches in 3 years
grade: F

Rd.6 Arnaz Battle WR:
Sure and steady WR who has continued to develop into a good player. 109 receptions / 1250 yards last 2 years. Doesnt scare defenses but just does his job. Likely no.3 with added talent

Seven picks and only 1 player is currently on the roster and contributing. Its little wonder we find overselves in the position we do now.

Default 2004 Draft Grades

We've been all around the mark with 2003 and 2005 drafts so here it is (drum roll pls) the 2004 draft grades. 4 years in and what have we learnt ?

9ers

Rd. 1 Rashuan Woods WR:
6'2 202 looks an ideal WR, Woods proved this wrong. 2 years 7 recptions 1 TD. Not sure what he does now but it aint in the NFL
Grade: F

Rd.2a Justin Smiley G
Nice player that was injury hampered and then wanted his pay day. Miami called and he answered this off season
Grade: C+

Rd. 2b Shawntae Spencer
Nice little DB ideally the teams 3rd back. Played well in 2005 / 2006 but also got burnt at times. Lost starting spot to Nate Clements last year
Grade: B

Rd.3 Derrick Hamilton WR
See Rashuan Woods but 6'4 217. 2 years no receptions some how on Denvers list
Grade: F

Rd. 4a Issac Sopoaga NT
Beast of a man now just learning the game. Splits time Abruyo Franklin and recently re signed
Grade: B+

Rd. 4b Richard Seigler LB
1 year 7 tackeles and then off list. Played on Steelers 2006 roster
Grade: F

Rd 6a Andy Lee P
Pro bowl punter and fan favorite, kept us in games many a time
Grade: A

Overall Grade: C+
The miss with Woods and then Hamilton hurt badly as well as the loss of Smiley mean an avaerage grade only

Philadelphia

1 (15) Jerome McDougle, DE, Miami (Fl.) Bust. Never did anything worthwhile, likely to be cut in TC this year. F

2. (61) L.J Smith, TE, Rutgers A mediocre TE who's better suited as a backup TE. Okay, but nothing special. C+

3. (95) Billy McMullen, WR, Virginia Bust. Oh God this guy was terrible. Scared to go over the middle, terrible hands etc... F

4. (131) Jamaal Green, DE, Miami. Another bust. Who exactly is he?

6. Jeremy Bridges, G, Mississippi Who? F

7. Norman Lejeune, S, LSU Who? F

WHAT THE **** WAS GOING ON HERE?

Sam Aiken was a day 2 pick that stuck on the team for 5 years. And he was really good at what he did.
An F is overdoing the Willis hate, too. That's putting him in the same boat as Mike Williams and Erik Flowers. Even the laziest of McGahees don't belong there.
Kelsay would be more of a C in my book, although he's hardly a thrilling starter.

Steelers:

1.16( Traded up with KC) Troy Polamalu,SS, USC. Best SS in the league and He fit perfectly in our scheme. 2x-All Pro and 4 time Pro-bowler.

2.59 ~ Alonzslow Jackson, 34OLB, Florida State ~ It's picks like this I remind people that Cowher isn't always the best talent evaluator. Damn NYG, Osi could be our ROLB right now.

Jason Witten, Antwan Peek, Lance Briggs, Derrick Dockery, Angelo Crowell, Asante Samuel all would've been better here.

4.125) Ike Taylor, CB, Louisiana Lafeyette ~ I think Ike is fairly underrated and if he had anything resembling a pair of hands at the end of his arms could very well be in discussion for top 5 CB's in the league. He has shut numerous WR's down. Including every single #1 we faced in 2005 (Marvin Harrison beat him once in the Monday Night game in 05)

5.163) Brian St. Pierre, QB, Boston College ~ Decent backup, has great touch, absolutely no arm strength. Solid #3. Should've lost his job to Omar Jacobs.

7.242) JT Wall, Georgia.. don't even know. Kevin Walter or Ethan Kelley would've been better picks.

Hooray, the Bob Sanders draft...

44) S Demond "Bob" Sanders - 2-time Pro Bowler, 2-time All-Pro, 2007 Defensive Player of the Year, and main reason the 2006 Colts defense transformed in the postseason and allowed the team to win the Super Bowl. Not bad for a 2nd round pick 4 years ago.

Grade: A+

68) TE Ben Hartsock - Wasn't able to beat out UDFAs Ben Utecht and Bryan Fletcher, ended up on the Titans last season. Not sure if he's still there.

Grade: D

69) LB Gilbert Gardner - As much as I hate to say it, Gardner being a Purdue product, he was a waste of space and did nothing beyond minor contributions on special teams. Ended up with the Titans, who let him go this offseason.

Grade: F

107) LB Kendyll Pope - Never really got a chance in the NFL, as he got suspended early in his career, and as far as I know, has yet to have the suspension lifted. I can't really say he was a bad pick, because he never really got a chance.

Grade: Incomplete

125) CB Jason David - Mediocre starter for 3 years, brought a 4th round pick when the Saints signed him as a RFA.

Grade: C (the pick received from the Saints pushes the grade up from a C-)

141) OG Jake Scott - 4 year starter for the Colts, recently signed with the Titans. Anyone noticing a trend here?

Grade: B

173) CB Von Hutchins - Mainly a backup and special teamer, was pretty decent on special teams.

Grade: C-

193) QB Jim Sorgi - Hard to judge, but in the limited time he's had with the first team offense, he's looked solid.

Grade: C

229) K David Kimball - Was drafted to be a kickoff specialist. FAIL.

Grade: F

Overall Draft Grade: A

Bob Sanders is the centerpiece of this draft, and was an obvious steal in the 2nd round given the impact he's had. Once again, the Colts produced 3 starters from this draft, and that's before counting Ben Utecht, an UDFA that started 15 games for the Colts last year. If the Colts could've gotten anything out of the 3rd round, it would've been Polian's best draft with the Colts to date.

Jaguars

7th overall- Byron Leftwich, QB, Marshall...WOW...he showed a lot of promise in his first two years but injuries cut his career in Jacksonville short...he's not currently with a team right now, and that's amazing because he can still play...how hard he has fallen...GRADE: F

39th Overall- Rashean Mathis, CB, Bethune Cookman...probably one of the Jaguars best picks...ever...he's been selected as an ALL PRO and been to a PROBOWL...he had a down year in 2007 but he's currently top 7 corner in the league...it's hard to believe that so many teams passed on him...GRADE: A+

72nd Overall- Vince Manuwai, OG, Hawaii...Manuwai is a very underrated guard in this league...he's so underrated that he outplayed most of the guards in the league but due to name recognition or lack thereof he was not selected to the probowl...an intricate part of the Jags running game....GRADE: A+

104th Overall- George Wrighster, TE, Oregon...Wrighster took a while to get going but has become a very good pass catching TE over the years, but due to his injuries over the years the organization chose to draft Marcedes Lewis in the first round in 2006...GRADE: C+

132nd Overall- Labrandon Toefield, RB, LSU...Toefield was a very good running back coming out of LSU but he just landed on a team that was set at RB...he reminds me of Steven Jackson the way he runs but he just never got an opportunity to really play...he did have a three TD game against Tennessee back in 2005...he is now playing for the Panthers...GRADE: C

176th Overall- Brandon Green, DE, Rice...Green never saw the field in Jax...GRADE: F

179th Overall- David Young, S, Georgia Southern...Young was on the practice squad for alittle while, but never played for the Jags....GRADE: F

193rd Overall- Marques Ogden, OT, Howard...pretty much drafted for the name recognition...was on the practice squad for most of his career in Jax...never panned out....GRADE: D

218th Overall- Malaefou Mackenzie, FB, USC...he could have been really good but just wasn't the all around FB that Del Rio was looking for...GRADE: F

Overall...I'd give the draft a C+, we got two very good players in Manuwai and Mathis...but tanked on Leftwich...

1 - 25 - Ahmad Carroll, CB, Arkansas
Physically gifted player that ran a 4.26 40. Unfortunately he's a dumbass and can't play cornerback. The only way he can stop a receiver is to grab them. Just throw it in his general direction because it will either be a completion or pass interfence. "Grabby Smurf" committed 33 penalties and gave up 11 TDs in just 28 starts. Was cut early into the 2006 season. Jacksonville picked him up last year, but he was arrested for drugs so they cut him. He's now in the arena league.
F

3 - 70 - Joey Thomas, CB, Montana State
We couldn't possibly get two corners dead wrong back to back right? Wrong. Joey Thomas didn't have the penalty problems that Carroll did, he just well sucked. He challenged Carroll some and I think even started a couple games, but that's not saying much. To add to the problems he and Carroll hated each other and broke out in fights in practice. He's at least still in the NFL with Miami, but it's extremely doubtful he makes the roster.
F

3 - 72 - Donnell Washington, DT, Clemson
At 6'6 328 he looks the part of an NFL DT. Playing like one is a completely different story. He was inactive for every game with us, never playing in two years. He showed up to training camp the next year out of shape at 350 and we later cut him. He's not in professional football now, he never really was in professional football.
F

3 - 87 - BJ Sander, P, Ohio State
He only punted one year in college yet we traded up to take him in the third round. There's no other way to say it other than he stunk. He averaged under 40 yards a punt and was god awful in the cold. A couple years later we signed Jon Ryan and he easily beat Sanders out. I was amazed by Ryan when I first saw him. Not so much because of how great he was, but how terrible he made Sander look.
F

6 - 179 - Corey Williams, DT, Arkansas State
Finally we get to a player that is still in the league. A good player at that. A DT that can effectively stop the run and get to the quarterback. He was in our rotation the past couple of years and started most of the second half of the 2007 season when Johnny Jolly was placed on IR. Traded to Cleveland this offseason for a second round pick.
B+

7 - 251 - Scott Wells, C, Tennessee
Another good pick. Started at center the past two years for us after we let Mike Flanagin leave. Didn't miss a beat and was actually an upgrade. Will be a staple in our offensive line for many years to come
A

Overall
Wow, we couldn't **** up our first 5 rounds anymore if we tried right now. Strangely after 4 straight absolute busts in the first 3 rounds we hit on two very good players in the 6th and 7th. It's not like those were considered good picks at the time either except maybe Washington. Williams and Wells keep this draft from being a complete failure, but I still can not go any higher than a D-. But hey what do you expect when this is your GM
