Dimino Grades the Draft

2016NFLDraftlogoI’m going to do something I never thought I’d do.
I’m going to grade the 1st Round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
I’m not going to do it with A’s..or B’s..or C’s D’s or F’s.
Because that would be dumb.
Always has been.
Unless you do it 3 YEARS after the draft..not 3 minutes or 3 hours.
So lets go with this.
Every team gets a grade of NI.

No Idea.

As in “Who Knows”

So my boss doesn’t think I just got lazy though..lets actually go with a little something more.

Here’s the

“Dimino Scale of Draft Grade Nonsense”

And a team/player can get more than one “grade” per pick

LH – Like Him
GV – Good Value
SP – Smart pick
FN – Fits Need
PDMQ – Possible Difference Maker Quickly
ON – Oh No
PPC – Possible Problem Child
KOAR – Kind Of A Reach
RNI – Really No Idea
DKEAH – Don’t Know Enough About Him
BPTYT – Better Pick Than You Think
CBHFITL – Can’t Believe He Fell Into Their Lap
TTCHDB – Think They Could Have Done Better
DGI – Don’t Get It

And the Very Rare..

LTP! – LOVE This Pick!

Rarer Still

TPTCGAGMF – The Pick That Can Get A GM Fired (saved for any QB taken in the 1st Round)
