Kiper: Average draft grades for AFC East
By James Walker
The 2012 NFL draft grades are officially in, and ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. provided immediate reaction to the selections in the AFC East.
Here is how the division fared:
These are mediocre draft grades for the division. The AFC East averaged about a C+ in Kiper's view.
I'm not a huge fan of grading drafts immediately after they happen. I prefer to wait at least a couple years to see how players pan out at the next level, which is a more accurate gauge.
Do you agree with Kiper's grades? Saturday night I went on Twitter to get instant reaction from AFC East fans, and most seemed happy with their respective teams. We won't start to know for sure until these rookies hit the field in the fall.
