NFL Draft Notes

This site grades each team's draft picks. The Rams get a B-, who as part of their picks went for Tony Hargrove. The Vikings get a B+, including their pick of Dorsey. The Chiefs get a B+, with their pick of K-Fox. The Jaguars get a B, including their pick D-Smith. Buffalo gets a B-, who picked Jonathan Smith late in the draft........... Here's more on J-Smith - "Smith caught 78 passes for 1,138 yards and five TDs, but the Bills think his greatest chance to contribute will be in the return game. He averaged 11.7 yards per punt return and scored two touchdowns. Mularkey also couldn’t ignore the fact that Smith lined up as a quarterback and a running back on occasion, and don’t forget, Mularkey coached the original “Slash,” Kordell Stewart. ”I’ll be honest, that intrigued me,” Mularkey said. “They tried to get the ball in his hands. Whether he can do it at this level, I don’t know, but I know he had experience at a high level of competition.”.............. Here's more on Hargrove. Can you believe this guy came to GT as a 220lb QB with a 39inch vertical, and gained 50 lbs of muscle and left as a top defensive player weighing 270 with a 39inch vertical - and just as quick. Amazing.

Former GT QB Andy Hall is happy to be an Eagle.
