Sports on Earth Draft Grades

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.

Bills Trade Steve Johnson to 49ers

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
