My wacky "use real pedagogy" draft grades arrive too late to be part of the FO survey, and they don't fit the format, anyway. But that does not mean you cannot hear my long-winded insights about why I hate the Steelers draft class.
NFC grades arrive tomorrow.

The terms: five years, $68 million. $23 million in guarantees, $45 million if you count guarantees with caveats.
So Joe Haden makes more than Richard Sherman.

Four- and five-star recruits were 995 percent more likely to be drafted in the first round than their lesser-ranked counterparts. So, why did Khalil Mack and Jimmie Ward slip under the recruiting radar?

What happens when the Browns ignore an obvious need, Jim Harbaugh forgets Mother's Day, and I try to process the Richard Sherman contract while substitute teaching a religious ed class?

The 49ers needed another wide receiver so they weren't stuck with someone like Quinton Patton on the field all the time, and the Bills apparently feel that they have too many wide receivers now that they drafted Sammy Watkins, so Steve Johnson is off to the 49ers for a conditional 2015 fourth-round pick which could become a third.
Most similar WR to Steve Johnson 2011-2013 by Football Outsiders sim scores:
Vance Johnson 1988-1990
Reggie Langhorne 1988-1990
Muhsin Muhammad 1999-2001
Dwayne Bowe 2007-2009
Earnest Gray 1982-1984
Kevin Walter 2007-2009
Bert Emmanuel 1996-1998

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman doesn't need a spokesman or PR firm to announce his new contract. He turned to a Stanford graduate with a degree in communications who is working on his Master's: himself.
"I am blessed to announce that the Seattle Seahawks and I have reached an agreement on a contract extension," Sherman wrote on his blog today.

This week: Josh Shaw lies, Steve Smith intimidates, Le'Veon Bell relaxes, Matt Simms dances, and Clint Trickett kisses and tells.
