We’re five years down the road on the 2017 NFL draft and it’s more than enough time for pundits to go back and re-grade that draft class.

Maurice Moton of Bleacher Report did just that. New York Giants fans will be surprised when they see that this class – although all have moved on – wasn’t that bad.

Moton grades the class a B-, which is surprising considering there are no “roster cornerstone” in the six-player group of tight end Evan Engram, defensive lineman Dalvin Tomlinson, quarterback Davis Webb, running back Wayne Gallman, defensive end Avery Moss and offensive lineman Adam Bisnowaty.

Engram became a Pro Bowler after years of inconsistency and painful drops but it wasn’t enough for incoming general manager Joe Schoen. He was signed by Jacksonville this offseason.

Tomlinson had a solid four years with the Giants, starting every game but was not re-signed and was quickly scooped up by Minnesota.

Webb is actually back with the Giants after stints with the Jets and Buffalo. He is their third-string quarterback and is only here due to his knowledge of new head coach Brian Daboll’s offense.

Gallman played well as a committee back for the Giants but he bounced around with three teams last year and is currently a free agent. Moss and Bisnowaty both had short NFL careers.
