Kiper re-grades drafts, gives Raiders C-

Jan 25, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: SFGate

ESPN NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper re-graded last year's drafts and gave the Raiders a C-minus. Their top pick, guard/tackle Tony Bergstrom, is a backup and I agree with Kiper's take on linebacker Miles Burris: He "made some plays, but Burris isn't a guy who would start for almost any other team right now."

The only fair comment, and I would say this about any player, is you can't "label" a player good or bad after one season. To say he wouldn't start for another team is ignorant. Every team has different coaches and different specialties. Some can get more or less out of the same player.
Burris needs another season to see what direction he is going in, that said, I have a good vibe about him.

Burris was a steal in the 4th round, he can only get better from here, Mackenzie did a good job with first draft I expect more of the same this upcoming draft

Burris has shown signs of being a full time starter in this league for years to come. Very solid in his rookie year--a few bad plays toward the end of the season but, hey, this isn't college ball.

Great pick for the 5th round....just watch.
