Here's how my draft looked after the first year. I had a strong first round pick but then my draft nose dives pretty quickly in terms of first year production. Several players suffered injuries (or were drafted with injuries) and I have hope that some of them will bounce back and turn into nice players. Some of them look like pure busts.

1.13 (13) - Sheldon Richardson DT (Jets)

Finished as PFF's 5th rated 3-4 DE. Had 4 sacks and was a wall against the run. Lost a couple votes to Star Lotulelei on his way to winning DROY award. Not the biggest hole on my team, but despite losing Tyson Jackson this off-season it has become a strength. Grade: A

2.07 (39) - Cornellius Carradine DE (49ers)

Carradine spent his first season on injury lists and making no impact. Given the quality players ahead of him on the depth chart, he's likely to be a role player in 2014. If this pick is going to pan out, it's probably going to be another year away. For now... Grade: F

3.01 (63) - Terrance Williams WR (Cowboys)

Williams had a decent rookie season starting 8 games and catching 44 passes for 736 yards and 5 touchdowns. This was a huge hole for my team so that production was welcome. With a chance to go into the upcoming season as Dallas' #2 WR, we're hoping for a good sophomore season. Grade: B-

3.10 (72) - Terron Armstead OT (Saints)

Armstead started 2 games as a rookie and looks likely to take over as the Saints' starting LT this year. Not much rookie production for a 3rd round pick. Grade: D


3.34 (96) - Knile Davis RB

Davis rushed for 242 yards and 4 TDs in limited action behind Jamaal Charles. He had a pretty good game going in the playoffs after Charles went down with a concussion, but then then he broke. His injury riddled history has me very concerned. Grade: D+


4.02 (99) - Josh Boyce WR (Patriots)

Boyce was drafted with a toe injury so he got off to a slow start his rookie season. He started 3 games but only caught 9 passes for 121 yards. Grade: D+

5.01 (134) - Sanders Commings CB

Missed almost the entire season with injuries. Grade: F

5.08 (141) - Oday Aboushi OT (Jets)

Aboushi didn't see the field and will have an uphill battle for playing time in 2014 as far as I can tell. Grade: F

6.02 (170) - Ryan Swope WR (retired)

Retired. Grade: F

6.36 (204) - Vince Williams LB (Steelers)

Williams started 11 games as a rookie which seems like a win for a 6th rounder. Grade: B
