Round 1 (23) - Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois - Grade: B
Round 2 (53) - Limas Sweed, WR, Texas - Grade: F------
Round 3 (88) - Bruce Davis, LB, UCLA: Grade: F-----
Round 4 (130) - Tony Hills, OT, Texas - Grade: F

Round 6 (188) - Mike Humpal, OLB, Iowa - Grade: D
Round 6 (194) - Ryan Mundy, FS, West Virginia - Grade B+
Draft Grade: D
This was a terrible, terrible draft. Had Colbert done a good job on this draft, we would have at least one more Super Bowl and probably more. There was soooooooooo much talent available in every round we picked and other than Mundy, there was a better pick to make at every spot. The only two picks that worked out at all were Mendenhall and Mundy.
Pro Bowlers: 1 (Mendenhall)
Contributors: 2 (Mundy, Dixon)
Failures/Wasted Picks: 4 (Sweed, Davis, Hills, Humpal)
Dream Draft (How much does it hurt reading this?)
Round 1: Ray Rice, RB
Round 2: Terrell Thomas, CB
Round 3: Mario Manningham, WR
Round 4: Brandon Carr, CB
Round 5: Carl Nicks, OG
Round 6: Matt Flynn, QB
Round 6: Ryan Mundy, FS
Oh how good we would be with the most versatile RB in the game, two lockdown corners, a slot WR, the best OG in the game and a valuable trade chip in Matt Flynn.
Flynn would have gotten to play in spot starts all those times Ben got hurt and had he done as well as he did in spot starts for Rodgers, we would have been able to trade him before the start of this past season for a 2nd or 3rd round pick.
Dear Kevin Colbert,
I love you and you are a great GM and drafter, but this was a complete and epic failure. Total failure. If an outsider looks at your draft here and not the team name, they would mistake us for the Cleveland Browns and that is an utter embarassment. Please never do something this awful again.
