2009 NFL Draft Grades

I've already separately run down my grades for each day of the draft, but below is an overall look at the Lions' entire draft.

Rd. # Player Pos. College Grade
1 1 Matthew Stafford
QB
Georgia
C
1 20 Brandon Pettigrew
TE Oklahoma St.
B+
2 33 Louis Delmas
S Western Mich.
B-
3 76 DeAndre Levy LB Wisconsin D+
3 82 Derrick Williams
WR Penn State
D+
4 115 Sammie Lee Hill
DT Stillman A
6 192 Aaron Brown
RB TCU D
7 228 Lydon Murtha
OT
Nebraska
B
7 235 Zack Follett LB California A
7 255 Dan Gronkowski TE Maryland D
OVERALL C+

The overall grade could have easily been a B-, and looking back I'm starting to think I may have under-graded the Delmas and Pettigrew picks.  Regardless, I'm sticking with my initial thoughts and gave the Lions a C+ for their draft as a whole.  There were a few good picks, a few questionable ones, and a few in between.
