Marty Hurney and Rich McKay, a couple of general managers I covered back in my newspaper days, used to always say “You don’t judge a draft for at least a couple of years.”

I agree with that, even if it means those grades we in the media all do on draft day or the day after are meaningless. You don’t really know what you’ve got for a couple of years. In that spirit, let’s take a look at the 2009 NFC draft classes, rank them and grade them.
