One Incomplete Grade

Going off averages, it comes up to a B- total grade in total. So far, Quinn has been able to find three “star” players in Decker, Ragnow, and Walker. While Kenny Golladay is his lone “superstar.”

Dahl, Hand, Kerryon, Hockenson, Tavai, and Oruwariye have shown flashes and still have a lot left to prove before it’s all said and done. Players including A’Shawn Robinson and Graham Glasgow were hits as well, although they weren’t valued enough to make a second contract.

There has been a fair share of disappointing picks (and free agency classes), which in hindsight, is a factor in the reason why the Lions haven’t been able to produce wins. All in all, a B- is a pretty fair grade for Quinn’s draft performances. It could be better, yet at the same time, I’ve seen worse.

I’ll say this as a final remark, If the Detroit Lions do cut ties with Bob Quinn at the end of the year, it won’t be the last of him in the NFL. He’s shown the willingness to adapt and has learned from his mistakes. Next season will be interesting to see how everything plays out.
