EDTShareTweetShareShareWednesday open thread: What grade do you give the Lions 2016 NFL Draft?Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY SportsWhen looking at the NFL Draft, everyone wants immediate gratification. Teams are hoping to get contributions out of the players from Day 1, and fans want to know immediately how well their team did on draft day.But that’s dangerous thinking. If a general manager goes into a draft hoping only to fill immediate needs with immediate starters, they are going to find themselves in a load of trouble in the near future. And fans may gobble up draft grades just hours after the picks are made, but that analysis is as close to meaningless as you can get in this business. That’s why many people like to wait at least three years before judging a draft class. Justin Rogers of The Detroit News did just that this week, giving out individual grades for each pick in the Detroit Lions’ 2016 NFL Draft class. You can view his grades here, but his overall grade for the class was a solid B+.Before we give grades of our own, here’s a reminder of the Detroit Lions’ draft haul that year:Round 1, Pick 16: OT Taylor DeckerRound 2, Pick 15: DT A’Shawn RobinsonRound 3, Pick 33: C Graham GlasgowRound 4, Pick 13: S Miles KillebrewRound 5 Sylvester Williams Jersey , Pick 12: G/T Joe Dahl Round 5, Pick 32: LB Antwione WilliamsRound 6, Pick 16: QB Jake RudockRound 6, Pick 27: DE Anthony ZettelRound 6, Pick 35: LS Jimmy LandesRound 7, Pick 15: RB Dwayne WashingtonToday’s Question of the Day is:What grade do you give the Lions’ 2016 NFL Draft class?My answer: I’m not going to be quite as forgiving as Rogers. While I agree with Justin that the Lions did a heck of a job with their first three picks, the failure of the next seven cannot be ignored.I’m not going to ding general manager Bob Quinn for Anthony Zettel. For where he was picked, the Lions actually got a really good return on that investment, and it’s not on Quinn that Zettel didn’t fit into the team’s plans after a coaching change.However, Miles Killebrew, Joe Dahl, Antwione Williams, Jake Rudock, Jimmy Landes and Dwayne Washington have all either been complete non-factors or have really struggled in their limited playing time. Individually http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-matt-prater-jersey , it doesn’t hurt missing on a few Day 3 picks. Collectively, missing on nearly all of them is bad. Detroit entered this draft with 10 picks and left with 10 picks. Having all of that Day 3 ammo provided a great opportunity to potentially trade up and get an earlier-round prospect that Quinn may have really liked. Instead, he chose to stand pat and collect guys that would amount to training camp and practice squad fodder. That’s not acceptable when you have so much Day 3 draft capital. All that being said, this was Quinn’s first draft and he was likely overwhelmed dealing with entirely new resources from the ones he had grown accustomed to in New England. It likely takes a couple years to get settled from a general manager standpoint, especially for a first-time GM. Quinn did well enough to get three potential long-term starters with Detroit’s first three picks, and that’s good enough for me to give him a B-. Your turn. Week 10 is finally over now that the 49ers and Giants finished what I’m sure was can’t-miss game on “Monday Night Football” that everyone decided to miss anyways. That means the standings are officially set for Week 11 and we know the current NFL Draft order that, of course, is subject to change until the end of the 2018 season.The Detroit Lions are currently at 3-6 on the season, tied with three other teams for the seventh-worst record in the league. The tiebreaker for draft order is strength of schedule, and contrary to belief, the Lions’ schedule has actually been on the easier end of the spectrum. According to Tankathon.com, the Lions’ have actually had the easiest strength of schedule among 3-6 teams, meaning if the 2019 NFL draft were today, they’d be picking seventh. Here’s a look at the current top 10 Womens Anthony Zettel Jersey , per NFL.com: Raiders (1-8)49ers (2-8)Giants (2-7)Cardinals (2-7)Jets (3-7)Bills (3-7)Lions (3-6)Jaguars (3-6)Broncos (3-6)Buccaneers (3-6)Of course, if you’re not ready to move onto the draft yet, these standings are still relevant to the 2018 season. At this point in the year, waiver priority is also determined by overall record, meaning if the Lions put in a claim for a waived player, they will be awarded him as long as the six teams below them in the standings (Raiders, 49ers, Giants, Cardinals, Jets, Bills) don’t make a claim for the same player. It’s also worth noting that because we’re past the trade deadline every player cut from a team is subject to waivers—even vested veterans.
