Grading the Draft

Grading the Draft
Posted May 12th, 2014 @ 12:54pm

Now that the NFL Draft is over, there's no shortage of experts willing to grade teams choices. 

The Miami Dolphins entered the draft with seven picks and through a number of trades, wound up picking up eight players.  Only three of those players were from major BCS schools, however, which is one of the reasons why some critics graded the Fins as low as a C-. 

ESPN's Mel Kiper says this draft was all about stopping the sacks on quarterback Ryan Tannehill and giving him a chance to take another step.  In that, Kiper says the team succeeded.

The Miami Dolphins have fined safety Don Jones for what the team calls "inappropriate and unacceptable" comments about openly gay player Michael Sam. 

The St. Louis Rams drafted Sam in the seventh round.  Shortly after, Sam was seen on national television kissing his boyfriend.  That's when Jones tweeted "OMG" and when someone asked through Twitter what he thought of the kiss, Jones replied "horrible". 

He was also suspended from the team until he undergoes sensitivity training.
