Pro Sports Wrap - Sports Personality of the Day:Kris Versteeg

To qualify a running back must have at least 100 carries. Thanks guys for your feedback, and feel free to comment and criticize. Do you think I should give an extra bonus to the guys with more carries? It seems as if the players in the 100-199 range have the advantage, but this is- after all- and efficiency stat. (The groupings should not be interpreted as tiers, as they are only used to make it look less messy)

Quietly spectacular 2010

Arizona Cardinals A minus Patrick Peterson is the third best prospect in the draft, and the Cards got a bargain with Sam Acho in the fourth round. Ryan Williams and Robert Housler were also nice additions.

Atlanta Falcons C plus The trade to get Julio Jones was steep, but it was a solid move in my opinion. The addition of Akeem Dent was pretty good, but I wish the Falcons didn't trade up to get Jacquizz Rodgers.

Baltimore Ravens- C plus The Ravens filled in positions of need with Jimmy Smith and Torrey Smith. Tandon Doss and Jah Reid were also solid additions.

Buffalo Bills- C I really loved the addition of Marcell Dareus, my highest rated prospect, but the only other decent addition besides him was Aaron Williams. Even Williams wasn't really that big of an add.

Carolina Panthers- D My favorite team struck out in this year's draft. The Cam Newton pick was too risky, but that wasn't the reason why they got a D. They got Kealoha Pilares when there were quite a few better receivers on the board, and Brandon Hogan and Terrell McClain were the only good moves. Sione Fua was a decent addition, but he really isn't going to be a big enough factor for the Panthers.

Chicago Bears- C plus The Bears got a bunch of solid players in this year's draft.

Cincinnati Bengals- C plus While I love A.J. Green and think Andy Dalton is a solid QB, there were really no other good picks made by the Bengals.

Cleveland Browns A I loved what the Browns did in this draft. They hoarded picks in the Julio Jones trade, and they really beefed up their defensive line with the additions of Phil Taylor and Jabaal Sheard. Greg Little is a talented receiving prospect.

Dallas Cowboys- B minus I thought the Cowboys did a solid job in the draft. DeMarco Murray should spell the end of Marion Barber's run in Dallas. Bruce Carter will provide linebacker depth and will be a solid player after his return from a knee injury. Tyron Smith has a lot of upside, and the Cowboys won't have to play the horrible Marc Colombo anymore.

Denver Broncos- A The Broncos filled out their positions of need and have a top pass-rushing duo with Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil. The problem is that both of them have almost the same strengths and weaknesses. I wish they drafted Marcell Dareus, and the Broncos didn't even add anybody to help out their horrible D-Line. Rahim Moore brings some much-needed safety help, but he may have to move to corner. The picks of Julius Thomas and Virgil Green allow the Broncos to finally have two playable tight ends. Orlando Franklin and Nate Irving were solid choices.
No More Carson
