The best pick of the draft was fourth-round linebacker Clint Session. He is a Pro Bowl-quality linebacker who has started the past two seasons. Anthony Gonzalez, the team’s first-round pick, was starting until he suffered a knee injury in the first game last season. He should start in 2010. The Colts traded a 2008 first-round pick to draft left tackle Tony Ugoh in the second round. Bad move. He spent last season on the bench after starting his first two with the team. Seventh-round pick Keyunta Dawson has started 20 games in three seasons at defensive tackle, making him a value pick.
I think he’s got Indy about a letter grade too low here. He undervalues what Gonzo already contributed. I suppose our difference of opinion could be on how you discount the Ugoh pick and the trade to get him.
He also way overvalues the Eagles draft, but I suppose that depends on if you think Kolb is good. We agree on New England (he gives credit for the trades, I don’t), but he likes Baltimore better than Pittsburgh. I disagree. The real truth is three years is still too early to grade this draft.
