Ford: Raptors earn a B+

Quote:

Toronto Raptors B+

Round 1: DeMar DeRozan (9)

Round 2: None

Analysis: The Raptors swung for the fences with this pick, getting a player with as much upside as anyone else in the draft.

DeRozan is long and athletic and can run the floor. If he improves his jump shot and ball-handling, he could be one of the best players in the draft. Those are big ifs, but the Raptors made a worthy gamble. With Chris Bosh possibly leaving this summer or next, they needed to add another premiere talent.

I'd give him a B, an extra pick would have given him an A for me!

I think his pick has the potential to be an F, so I'm giving him a D-.

Grading a day after the draft is so dumb.

um, let's see her. an A is an A and a B is a B. if you got a B+ people would round it down to a B. if you got an A- people would round it up to an A. id rather be an A than a B. but, that is just me.

I'd give a B+

With the pick we had, we came away with a good player with some skills that can help us immediately and some skills that if developed, will help us long term as well. He's long, can play defense, and has excellent athleticism...That counts for a good grade in my opinion.

How about I give them 39.5/50= 79%? If we're pulling stuff out of our ass we might as well get more detailed.

about 90% of the ppl i know would have taken demar in that spot with the players taken ahead.... C as in average. He has a greater chance of being roleplayer/bust then a star, i will hold judgement for a couple years, but nothing to give an A on

They would have gotten an A had they picked up an additional second rounder and gotten someone like Blair
