Instant Draft Grades (Most Recent Class)                     


  • 1.7: WR Darrius Heyward-Bey: Raiders take a speedster at 7, hopefully it works out for them. Grade: C-.
  • 2.47: DB Michael Mitchell: Potential gem, but it's a little early for players this far under the radar. Grade: D+.
  • 3.71: DE Matt Shaughnessey: Lacks ideal measurables, makes up for it with toughness and motor. Grade: C+.
  • 4.124: WR Louis Murphy: Good size and speed and can return kicks and punts. Value pick. Grade: B+.
  • 4.126: DE Slade Norris: Excellent speed/size (4.63 @ 245). Played DE but projects as a OLB. Grade: C.
  • 6.199: DE Stryker Sulak: Had top workout times at Combine, but may have to move to OLB. Grade: C-.
  • 6.202: TE Brandon Myers: Good blocking skills and improving hands mean he has a decent chance to stick. Grade: C-.
