A review of my team's draft this year. Recall that we traded out of the #1 pick at significant cost to pick up more lower picks.

All in all, I hit first-round gold and got some production out of my lower picks. My mid-round picks were a disaster in their rookie year, though.

Round 1, Pick 13 - Star Lotulelei, DT (Panthers)

Started every game, played well, and got a couple of DROY votes. Filled a huge need on my team. Grade: A

Round 2, Pick 34 - Geno Smith, QB (Jets)

Started every game, but it was a learning year. He's my second-string QB and hopefully he'll improve with experience. Grade: C-

Round 2, Pick 39 - Menelik Watson, OT (Raiders)

Had some nagging injuries that cost him the chance to shine. Started only three games even with injuries to Veldheer. Perhaps he'll blossom next year. Grade: D

Round 3, Pick 63 - Travis Kelce, TE (Chiefs)

Total injury bust in Year One. Grade: F

Round 3, Pick 72 - Brandon Williams, DT (Ravens)

This one hurt. He saw very little action this year, and I drafted him after strongly considering both Keenan Allen and John Jenkins. Grade: D-

Round 3, Pick 96 - Tyler Wilson, QB (Raiders)

Huge bust. Grade: F.

Round 4, Pick 99 - Denard Robinson, RB/KR (Jaguars)

I don't know what happened here. I took him as a high-risk, high-reward play, and he was looking promising in preseason. But then he almost never saw the field once the season started. Grade: D-

Round 5, Pick 134 - Jesse Williams, DT (Seahawks)

Went on IR in preseason. Grade: F

Round 5, Pick 141 - A.J. Klein, ILB (Panthers)

Actually got a couple of starts and made some tackles, mostly on special teams, I think. But still, he made the team. Grade: B

Round 6, Pick 170 - Bacarri Rambo, FS (Redskins)

He actually won the starting job in preseason and I was quite hopeful, but got demoted three weeks later. He's still better than Kendrick Lewis. Grade: A-

Round 6, Pick 204 - Jordan Poyer, CB (Eagles)

Got cut by the team that drafted him, and had a good punt return average with the Browns in limited action. At least he's still in the league. Grade: B-
