According to Ford, the Bulls earned an "A-" for grabbing PG Marquis Teague late in the first round:

Analysis: The Bulls got the 19th-ranked player on our Big Board with the No. 29 pick. So, not only did they get the best player available here, but they filled a need. With Derrick Rose out for the start of the season, Teague might find some minutes right away.

Teague is still learning his craft as a point guard, but he is super quick, gets to the rim and was an emerging shooter at Kentucky ... Virtually every scout I spoke with thinks he has much more potential than his brother, Jeff. Given that Jeff is the starting point guard in Atlanta, I think the Bulls made out very well.

Elsewhere, the Bulls received a "C" from NBC Sports, a "C" from SB Nation's Andrew Sharp and a "B" from CBS.
