Continuing our Draft Grades series, let’s take a look at the AFC North.
Baltimore Ravens: A
The Ravens have consistently been one of the best teams at navigating the NFL Draft since they came into the league in 1996. This year was no different. Baltimore gets an automatic bump in their grade after trading a 3rd and 4th round pick for Anquan Boldin, but that’s not what earned them the A grade. General Manager Ozzie Newsome and his team skillfully worked the draft, getting back the picks they spent for the big time receiver from Arizona. According to one of our sources, Baltimore was set to take Dez Bryant with the 25th pick until Dallas moved up to draft him. At that point, Baltimore even seriously considered taking Sergio Kindle with the 25th pick, but the trade offer from Denver was too good to pass up. After trading Keep Reading…
Our friends at College Football Geek continue to keep us updated on what’s going on in the college football world. Recently, they answered the question, “what is in store for Florida now that Tim Tebow is gone?” By Joe Arpasi – College Football Geek For the last three seasons, quarterback Tim Tebow has been the heart and soul of the Florida Gator offense. With Tebow off to the NFL, head coach Urban Meyer must find a new direction for the offense in 2010. What’s the Scoop? Florida spent the last three seasons with quarterback Tim Tebow at the helm of the offense. The focus during that time period was a power running game based out of the shotgun, along with an efficient passing attack. Tim Tebow is now playing for the Denver Broncos, and the Gators’ offense is going through a transition. Heading into the spring, it was understood that Keep Reading…
For the second year in a row, Rob Engle and I put our heads together to come up with a 1 round mock draft and a top 100 overall players list for a scoring competition organized by our friends at The Huddle Report. This year, our efforts paid off in a big way. We hit 11 total picks in the first round, including the first 7 in a row! We were also one of the few mock drafts out there that had Tyson Alualu as a first round pick, which sealed the victory. See the complete mock draft by clicking here. Our mock scored better than other big name analysts like Mel Kiper and Rick Gosselin. Listed below are the results of the scoring. Be sure to check out The Huddle Report for the full listing!

After taking some time to gather our bearings, we’re starting our official draft grades series. We’ll start with the AFC East, and work our way through every division in the NFL.
Buffalo Bills: C-
The Bills came into the draft with some serious holes. They were in dire need of a left tackle, a right tackle, and most likely, a quarterback. The Bills are also making the transition to a 3-4 defense, which will require new personnel. While Buffalo picked up some quality players, they overlooked their biggest need at left tackle. They drafted 2 offensive tackles (Ed Wang of Virginia Tech and Kyle Calloway of Iowa), but neither looks to have a career at left tackle. Buffalo hit their defensive line hard in the draft, adding Alex Carrington, who will play the 5 technique in their 3-4 defense and Torrell Troup, who is destined to be their Keep Reading…
