Without further ado, here are complete grades for all 32 picks in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft.

 

No. 1: Panthers: Cam Newton, QB, Auburn – GRADE: B-

JaMarcus Russell or Peyton Manning, Panthers fans.  That’s the disparity we are looking at here.  This could define the Panthers for the next 5-10 years as a contender or an epic fail.

No. 2: Broncos: Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M – GRADE: B

Emotional quick linebacker who will cause havoc for QBs.

No. 3: Bills: Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama – GRADE B+

No choice other than this big DT. Being 32nd against the run last year will do that.

No. 4: Bengals: A.J. Green, WR, Georgia – GRADE: B-

Pros: Big time receiver.  Cons: Diva in training gets to play with Ochocinco.

No. 5: Cardinals: Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU – GRADE: A

Big, smooth CB who can play the position.  Peterson Island anyone?

 No. 6: Falcons: Julio Jones, WR, Alabama – GRADE: B

Falcons make a huge splash trading down with Cleveland. Jones is a B; the overall trade is more of a C-

 No. 7: 49ers: Aldon Smith, DE, Missouri – GRADE: C-

With needs at QB and CB, odd pick by the Niners.

No. 8: Titans: Jake Locker, QB, Washington – GRADE: B-

Some rate Locker as a franchise QB, others… not so much.

No. 9: Cowboys: Tyron Smith, OT, USC – GRADE: B+

Good offensive lineman for the Cowboys.  This is a keeper.

No. 10: Jaguars: Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri – GRADE: B

Jacksonville meet your Franchise QB… hopefully.
