Grades

Why is it that people feel compelled to 'grade' the draft less than 24 hours after it's completion? It is such an amazing exercise in futility, I simply can't believe people A) Write them and B) Read them.

My favorite is the "I don't like to give out grades, but if I HAD to..." which is truly the worst of the whole grading phenomenon. Look, you're wasting time as it is, but at least grab the bull by the horns and declare "THIS IS MY GRADE FOR THE PACKERS DRAFT!"

But no, every year you can count on ridiculous pronouncements like this from Joe Arrigo over at PackerChatters:

I don't like to give out a "grade" on drafts because you never know how any of these players will transition to the pro level.

Only to have it followed one paragraph later with this:

Since I feel forced to give a grade I will say a solid B+ with the possibility for this draft to be an A-

Really? Forced? The great unseen hands of ghostly Packer faithful have gotten to Joe again! What a crock. Man up and admit you're dying to give a grade, despite the fact you KNOW it's complete bullshit. That's right, bullshit. And there are dozens of examples like this one (Brats & Beer Guy, you are spared my wrath only because you closed your post with a bottle of Leinie's which is a damn fine gesture)

Come on, people. We're smarter than this. Grades are for the fools at the draft who boo Thompson and the idiots who watch SportsCenter. It's time to evolve...
