    We got a B. I'm happy, his grading system was pretty tough. Only three teams got better grades, the Texans, the 49ers, and the Ravens, all of whom got B+. While Kiper can say some stupid things sometimes, I'm appreciating the validation from anyone at this point.

    PLEASE NOTE- :brow:
    Colts- C
    Jags- C+

    He doesn't like the colts draft...

    Kiper had addai as the 6th best back behind bush, williams, maroney, white, calhoun. He can't like the colts pick in rd one.

    Calhoun? I can see White being ahead of Addai but in there system Addai is the better fit. Addai is the better combination of size, speed and pass catching ability and I doubt many teams had Calhoun rated over Addai who is bigger and faster than Calhoun.

    Soxcat..

    The knock on addai is that he doesn't have change of direction ability that a deangelo williams has. He might not be as dynamic a runner.

    Also, I saw Kiper's pre-draft Top 5 RB-thing, and he described Addai as a "bigger back who plays small". I don't know what that means, but I remember seeing Addai v. GA in the SEC championship...he went down fairly easy. :evil:

    That being said, you don't have to hit a home run with your draft when you only really need a piece or two...:suspect:
