After the 2010 NFL Draft's first day, Sam Bradford, Ndamukong Suh and the other first-rounders might have thought they were done with school and into the professional world.

Fat chance. Since then, they've taken part in rookie mini-camps, training camps, preseason games and six weeks of the NFL regular season.

At this point, it's time to take a look back at how they graded out.

In reading these grades, it's important to keep the two-rule grading rubric in mind.

One, no one's getting off easy with an "incomplete." Frankly, with only five or six games' worth of evidence to go on, any judgment on these 32 players is incomplete.

Two, they're graded on a curve.

If the grade-A standard was Anquan Boldin's 101-catch debut in 2003 or Eric Dickerson's 1,808 rushing yards as a rookie in 1983, no one in the class of 2010 would get above a B-minus.
