Final Draft Grades for Every NFC West Team

Can San Francisco repeat, or are the Cardinals primed for a run?

The 2011 NFL season ended with the San Francisco 49ers squarely on top of the division. The 2012 NFL draft gave the Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams the opportunity to make up a little ground.

The 49ers didn't do a lot to help themselves in the draft, but still improved their team.

The Rams had a golden opportunity to add several quality players to their roster this season after acquiring the Washington Redskins' first-round picks in 2013 and 2014. They were in a position to make a few more smart trades and add a few more picks in the middle and end of the draft.

Instead, they made an ill-advised move and settled for quantity instead.

Arizona and Seattle both had solid drafts, even though some feel the Seahawks missed badly with a few of their early selections. 

The draft is over, but the draft season isn't. There are a lot of quality players that were not drafted and will be available as free agents.

For now, here are the grades for the structured portion of the entering rookies. We welcome your comments and grades below.
