2012 NFL Draft Grades: Chicago Bears' Complete Draft Report Card

Now that the 2012 NFL draft is in the books, it's time to assess how the Bears and GM Phil Emery's did in their first draft together.

While I understand this is a honeymoon period for Emery as the new Bears GM, I'm still going to a realistic analysis of the picks rather than be an Emery fan-boy.

To recap the Bears' picks:

Round 1: DE/OLB Shea McClellin.

Round 2: WR Alshon Jeffery.

Round 3: S Brandon Hardin.

Round 4: FB/TE Evan Rodriguez.

Round 5: pick traded to St. Louis.

Round 6: CB Isaiah Frey.

Round 7: CB Greg McCoy.

It was a surprising draft to be sure. But how good was it?

I'll not only grade each pick, but also—just as importantly—I'll grade the draft as a whole. As a bonus, I'll also compare our draft to that of our main rivals—the Packers.
