2010 NFL Draft: Fourth Round Grades

Benjamin C. Klein@@BenjaminCKleinCorrespondent IApril 24, 2010

I am one of the senior editors of NFLdraftbible.com and one of the primary draft analysts. I have run hundreds of scouting reports for this year's draft.

The most insightful and in-depth coverage can be found on our website, where we run live interviews and podcasts, and have up to date news and analysis. I was "discovered" writing for B/R, so I am posting a few things during the draft as a thank you. 

99. St. Louis Rams

Mardy Gilyard: A

Gilyard can be Bradford’s best friend from the slot.


100. Minnesota Vikings

Everson Griffen: A

A good value, and Griffen can learn from Jared Allen.


101. Tampa Bay Bucs

Mike Williams: B

Only concern is character. Bucs might be building a PR nightmare.


102. Houston Texans

Daryl Sharpton: D

Too high for a versatile LB backup when they have other needs.


103.  Washington Redskins

Perry Riley: C

Adds depth to their ILB crew, but will he ever see field?


104. Tennessee Titans

Alterraun Verner: B+

A good fit as a slot CB.


105. Philadelphia Eagles

Trevard Lindley: C

Fills a need but not ready to play as a starter on NFL level.


106. Oakland Raiders:

Bruce Campbell: A

A lot of pundits thought he would be Oakland’s reach pick. Not their savvy one.


107. Buffalo Bills

Marcus Easley: A

Excellent developmental WR who will make his presence felt on special teams.


108. Oakland Raiders

Jacoby Ford: A

Perfect spot for Oakland to take him. Good potential as a slot guy.


109. Chicago Bears

Corey Wootton: B

Health is the key to his success.


110. San Diego Chargers

Darrell Stuckey: B

A bit high but excellent developmental safety prospect.


111. Seattle Seahawks

Walter Thurmond: A-

If he can stay healthy, he will be a starter.


112. New York Jets

Joe McKnight: A-

A good complimentary piece that fits, however, a limited ceiling.


113. New England Patriots

Aaron Hernandez: A

Tom Brady couldn’t be happier. Patriots are on fire.


114. Baltimore Ravens

Dennis Pitta: B

Must be kicking themselves they missed on Hernandez. Still a nice consolation.


115. New York Giants

Phillip Dillard: B

Lacks playing experience but has high upside. Impressive senior year.


116. Pittsburgh Steelers

Thaddeus Gibson: A

Dick LeBeau loves to attack, attack, attack, attack, attack, and attack.


117. Atlanta Falcons

Joe Hawley: A

Good short-term interior backup, excellent long-term starting center.


118. Houston Texans

Garrett Graham: B

A bit high but solid Owen Daniels insurance.


119. Miami Dolphins

A.J. Edds: B

A reach but a nice run-stuffing OLB for their 3-4.


120. Cincinnati Bengals

Geno Atkins: C

Bengals need to stop only drafting boom or bust prospects.


121. Philadelphia Eagles

Keenan Clayton: B+

Good depth and long-term starter if Ernie Sims doesn’t work out.


122. Philadelphia Eagles

Mike Kafka: A

Andy Reid knows how to locate and develop quarterbacks.


123. New Orleans Saints

Al Woods: A

A quality run stuffer, a big need area for the Saints.


124. Carolina Panthers

Eric Norwood: A

Great value and potential starter at the SAM.


125. Philadelphia Eagles

Clay Harbor: B

Slight reach but provides a nice developmental TE and depth in the short-term.


126. Dallas Cowboys

Akwasi Owusu-Ansah: A

Great value at a position of need. Special teams dynamo.


127. Seattle Seahawks

E.J. Wilson: B

Solid two-down, run-stuffing end, no more no less.


128. Detroit Lions

Jason Fox: B+

Short-term depth and possible long-term starter.


129. Indianapolis Colts

Jacques McClendon: A

A shocker, Colts draft a run-blocking guard.


130. Arizona Cardinals

O’Brien Schofield: A

Health is a huge issue, but even if he busts it's a great, gutsy move.


131. Cincinnati Bengals

Roddrick Muckelroy: B

Rey Maualuga bonehead insurance. Limited starting potential.
