Reviewing Kiper's draft grades

April, 29, 2012
Grades are in. In an Insider piece Insider, Mel Kiper has assigned draft grades for each team. Here are his grades for each AFC West team:

San Diego

Grade: B+

My take: I think the Chargers deserved an A. When you get three impact players and at great values with your first three picks, you are doing something right.


Grade: C+

My take: I think Denver deserved a slightly higher grade. They were solid and smart and didn’t lose patience. They got better.

Kansas City

Grade: C+

My take: I think the Chiefs deserved a B. They got some intriguing players and added some real talent in the trenches.


Grade: C-

My take: I think the Raiders deserve a solid C. They were hamstrung and still added some value. Tony Bergstrom, Miles Burris, Jack Crawford and Juron Criner all have a chance to stick.
