2012 NFL Draft Grades: Rams Earned An "A" Grade In Round 1 From SB Nation's Joel Thorman

Round 1 of the 2012 NFL Draft is complete, and Joel Thorman over at SB Nation NFL put out his NFL Draft Grades that provide initial impressions on how each team maximized the value of their picks in Round One. When it comes to the NFC West: the St. Louis Rams earned an "A" for trading back and getting Michael Brockers at No. 14, the Arizona Cardinals received a "B" for taking WR Michael Floyd, the San Francisco 49ers got stuck with a "C" for reaching to get WR A.J. Jenkins and the Seattle Seahawks were slapped with a "D" for selecting Bruce Irvin at No. 15.

If you aren't satisfied with those grades or would otherwise like some additional perspective from the SB Nation staff, be sure to check out the video breakdown by the SB Nation YouTube team embedded below.
