C's earn strong marks from Ford

ESPN.com draft guru Chad Ford graded each team's haul from Thursday night and assigned the Boston Celtics the grade of A- for landing the Purdue tandem of JaJuan Johnson (No. 27) and E'Twaun Moore (No. 55).


Only the Timberwolves, Kings, and Jazz graded out higher at A, while the Celtics had a lot of company at the A- mark. But how would you rank Boston's night. Vote in the poll at right, then sound off in the comments. Are you happy that the Celtics got a big man? Or disappointed the team passed on a scorer like Providence's Marshon Brooks or the wing players that were available at No. 25 like Texas' Jordan Hamilton and Marquette's Jimmy Butler?

Only time will apply a true grade, but Boston entered Friday's draft with only one bench player officially signed for the 2011-12 season in Avery Bradley and now they've added a pair of potential role players that will help map their course for free agency (whenever that opens with an impending lockout).
