New York Giants 2014 Draft: Aggregating Report Card Grades from Around the Web
USA TODAY Sports
Odell Beckham, Jr. was the Giants' first-round selection.

For the college-aged readers who just finished up finals week, the thought of more report card grades may be nauseating.

For everyone else, the readers who can't get enough draft analysis, this is for you.

I've gathered assessments of the New York Giants' 2014 draft class from five prominent NFL writers and draft experts (all in the form of report card grades).

According to these write-ups, the Giants graded out alright, but not spectacularly—three Bs, one B- and a C+.

Not exactly Ivy League.

Yeah, it's silly to grade a draft class before any of the rookies even step on the field. That's not to say, however, that these grades are completely worthless. As more misses have marked his drafts than hits lately, Giants general manager Jerry Reese is overdue for a successful class of selections.

First impressions play a role. Do early indications in the form of expert report card grades tell us whether Reese's 2014 draft class will be the one Giants fans have been waiting on?

On a larger scale, what do these picks say about the team's current identity?

Hit "Next" to read about a suspected shift in Reese's draft strategy, the Giants' Super Bowl window under Eli Manning, Rueben Randle's role in the offense moving forward and more.
