NFL Nation TV delves into 'Thumbs Down' NFL draft grades


Join us today at 1 p.m. ET, 10 a.m. PT as NFL Nation TV returns from a one-week sabbatical for Spreecast 54 as we break down the four teams to receive a "Thumbs Down" for their drafts from the ESPN.com reporters who cover those respective teams.

Host Paul Gutierrez (49ers reporter) and co-hosts Coley Harvey (Cincinnati Bengals reporter) and Mike Wells (Indianapolis Colts reporter) will also be joined by three other NFL Nation reporters throughout the 60-minute show.

Mike Rodak (Buffalo Bills reporter) wrote, "Overall, the Bills' haul just wasn't overly inspiring," and he will break down his assessment to kick things off.

Adam Teicher (Kansas City Chiefs reporter) wrote, "Marcus Peters in the first round is a very risky pick because of his behavioral issues." But what else about Kansas City's draft left Teicher underwhelmed?

Plus, Terry Blount (Seattle Seahawks reporter) will explain what he meant when he wrote, "This one started badly when they made Michigan DE Frank Clark their top pick."

And Gutierrez will attempt to make sense of the Niners drafting for the future, as if they are coming off a fourth straight NFC title game appearance, rather than an 8-8 season and getting significantly weaker this offseason. Get your conspiracy theories ready.
