Mel Kiper revisits the 2011 draft

In an Insider piece, Mel Kiper regraded the 2011 draft class for every team. Let’s take a look:

Denver

Draft day grade: B

New grade: B

My take: The Broncos had a good class. Von Miller is a star and tackle Orlando Franklin and safety Quinton Carter are big contributors.

Kansas City

Draft day grade: C+

New grade: C

My take: I think this class will end up being very strong. Jon Baldwin and Justin Houston showed flashes.

Oakland

Draft day grade: C+

New grade: B+

My take: Al Davis’ last draft class has a chance to be strong; guard Stefen Wisniewski is good already. Fifth-round pick Denarius Moore is a potential star and there is some promise in the class.

San Diego

Draft day grade: B+

New grade: C+

My take: First-round pick Corey Liuget is going to be a good player and receiver Vincent Brown, a third-rounder, showed flashes.
