“I think the quarterbacks were evaluated and graded as what they were evaluated and graded as,” Holmes said after Friday night’s third round concluded. “Look, in personnel, we can’t control how the media grades and evaluates and the outside people grade and evaluates. When quarterbacks are being tabbed as this, this, that, that and that by the outside narrative – and I’m not saying – often, the media, they have contacts in scouting and they’re talking to people in personnel, and if it is, it is.
I looked at the quarterbacks and I thought that they were taken where we thought they should have been taken, at least from our standpoint. I didn’t see it as they were being mistreated or not being taken fairly. I think they were evaluated properly.”
