Draft Grades for All 32 Teams

Apr 29, 2019

Arizona Cardinals: A

Round 1 (1): Kyler Murray, QB

Round 2 (33): Byron Murphy, CB

Round 2 (62): Andy Isabella, WR

Round 3 (65): Zach Allen, DE

Round 4 (103): Hakeem Butler, WR

Round 5 (139): Deionte Thompson, S

Round 6 (174): KeeSean Johnson, WR

Round 6 (179): Lamont Gaillard, G

Round 7 (248): Joshua Miles, T

Round 7 (249): Michael Dogbe, DT

Round 7 (254): Caleb Wilson, TE

I absolutely love what the Cardinals did in this draft. Kyler Murray is the same height and weight as Russell Wilson was coming out of college, with more athleticism and speed, and better stats and accuracy. He’s by far the best quarterback in this draft and a potential Super Bowl MVP. They then picked up the best cornerback in the draft in Byron Murphy in the second round. Andy Isabella is one of my favorite receivers in the draft with electrifying speed and playmaking ability out of the slot. Isabella is a faster and more athletic version of Julian Edelman. I understand the concern with Hakeem Butler’s hands, but I think it’s more due to lack of concentration than it is having “bad” hands. With his 6’5” frame and ability to jump up and win 50/50 balls and box out on redzone tosses with his long arms, he has all the potential in the world. KeeSean Johnson and Caleb Wilson were also great value picks with tons of upside. My only issue with this draft was taking Zach Allen instead of a stud guard like Michael Deiter to help beef up the offensive line and give Murray and David Johnson more time and space. I can’t nitpick too much though. This was an outstanding draft for the Cardinals

New England Patriots: A

Round 1 (32): N’Keal Harry, WR

Round 2 (45): Joejuan Williams, CB

Round 3 (77): Chase Winovich, DE

Round 3 (87): Damien Harris, RB

Round 3 (101): Yodny Cajuste, T

Round 4 (118): Hjalte Forholdt, G

Round 4 (133): Jarrett Stidham, QB

Round 5 (159): Byron Cowart, DT

Round 5 (163): Jake Bailey, P

Round 7 (252): Ken Webster, CB

New England absolutely crushed the first four picks. N’Keal Harry gives Tom Brady a big bodied possession receiver with excellent hands and playmaking talent. He’s a great redzone target and will make catches at the sticks to move the chains. Reminds me of Anquan Boldin in his prime. Joejuan Williams is huge at 6’4” and 210 pounds. He has very fluid hips, a nice burst, and changes direction quickly. His instincts and awareness are excellent and his position is almost always on point. He’s extremely physical and plays solid in press coverage. He’s also a great tackler and loves to make a big hit. Chase Winovich is a poor man’s Clay Matthews who should be a great defensive end. Damien Harris is a top 5 running back in this draft and should make for a scary 1-2 punch with Sony Michel for the future. Stidham made a ton of mistakes, but he has the tools and potential to be Brady’s replacement one day. The rich keep getting richer…

Philadelphia Eagles: A

Round 1 (22): Andre Dillard, T

Round 2 (53): Miles Sanders, RB

Round 2 (57): JJ Arcega-Whiteside, WR

Round 4 (138): Shareef Miller, DE

Round 5 (167): Clayton Thorson, QB

I absolutely love the Eagles first 3 picks, who all fell inside my top 30. Considering they only had 5 total picks in this draft, they made the most of it by smashing their top 3 picks. Andre Dillard is the best pass blocking left tackle in the draft. Miles Sanders was the second best running back right behind Josh Jacobs and has everything you look for in a running back in terms of speed and elusiveness. JJ Arcega-Whiteside is a big and strong possession receiver with excellent hands and good speed. He runs great routes and is a solid redzone threat as well.

New Orleans Saints: A

Round 2 (48): Erik McCoy, C

Round 4 (105): Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S

Round 6 (177): Saquan Hampton, S

Round 7 (231): Alize Mack, TE

Round 7 (244): Kaden Elliss, ILB

So this grade takes into account the fact that the Saints didn’t have a first or a 3rd round pick. The fact that they were able to snag the second best center in the draft and my favorite safety in Chauncey Gardner-Johnson in the 4th round was super impressive. I also really like Alize Mack and think he can be a starter for them one day.

Jacksonville Jaguars: B

Round 1 (7): Josh Allen, OLB

Round 2 (35): Jawaan Taylor, T

Round 3 (69): Josh Oliver, TE

Round 3 (98): Quincy Williams, ILB

Round 5 (140): Ryquell Armstead, RB

Round 6 (178): Gardner Minshew, QB

Round 7 (235): Dontavius Russell, DT

Josh Allen fell into their laps at 7, when he should’ve been gone in the top 5. Jawaan Taylor has injury concerns and I don’t view him as an elite tackle, but he should be a decent starter. I’m a big fan of Gardner Minshew and think he has the potential to be a solid starter in the league down the road. Russell was a good value pick in round 7 as well. Oliver is an overated tight end and Williams and Armstead don’t do anything for me. But Allen, Taylor, Minshew and Russell were all solid picks and equate to a B.

Denver Broncos: B

Round 1 (20): Noah Fant, TE

Round 2 (41): Dalton Risner, T/G

Round 2 (42): Drew Lock, QB

Round 3 (71): Dre’Mont Jones, DE

Round 5 (156): Justin Hollins, DE

Round 6 (187): Juwann Winfree, WR

I really like what the Broncos did. They drafted a fast and talented receiving tight end in Noah Fant. They picked up my favorite guard in the draft in Dalton Risner, who is a straight nasty mauler in the run game and a solid pass blocker as well. Landing Drew Lock at quarterback provides the Broncos with a future to look forward to after they realize that Joe Flacco isn’t very good. Make it two years in a row that Flacco’s team drafts a rookie quarterback and runs him out of town. Lock is Jay Cutler 2.0. He will frustrate you with turnovers and mistakes, but he’s got the talent to put points on the board and sling the ball. Dre’Mont Jones is underrated and can get some great pressure on the QB. I think he’s too small to play defensive tackle, but he can thrive as a defensive end. Overall, a great draft for the Broncos as they got a lot of talent and addressed a lot of needs.

Carolina Panthers: B

Round 1 (14): Brian Burns, DE

Round 2 (37): Greg Little, T

Round 3 (100): Will Grier, QB

Round 4 (115): Christian Miller, DE

Round 5 (154): Jordan Scarlett, RB

Round 6 (212): Dennis Daley, T

Round 7 (237): Terry Godwin, WR

Burns has elite upside as a pass rusher and was a big need for the Panthers. Greg Little is a solid tackle and instantly upgrades their offensive line. Will Grier isn’t flashy, but he’s a winner and he’s accurate. I like the idea of taking him in the 3rd round, especially with the uncertainty surrounding Cam Newton. Jordan Scarlett is a speedy running back with some nice potential behind CMac. Solid draft for the Panthers.

Baltimore Ravens: B-

Round 1 (25): Marquise Brown, WR

Round 3 (85): Jaylon Ferguson, DE

Round 3 (93): Miles Boykin, WR

Round 4 (113): Justice Hill, RB

Round 4 (123): Ben Powers, G

Round 4 (127): Iman Marshall, CB

Round 5 (160): Daylon Mack, DT

Round 6 (197): Trace McSorley, QB

The Ravens picked up blazing speed and home run talent with Marquise Brown at receiver and Justice Hill at RB. They now have the fastest quarterback, wide receiver and running back in the league. The talent is there as well. Everything comes down to Lamar Jackson improving his accuracy and being able to hit Brown in stride on the deep balls when he gets open. Jaylon Ferguson set sack records and was as productive as they come. He did rack up a lot of production against weak talent, so let’s hope it translates to the NFL, but the kid has a ton of upside. I preferred the Ravens take Hakeem Butler over Miles Boykin at receiver and preferred Ross Pierschbacher at center instead of Ben Powers at guard. Iman Marshall makes no sense to me and I thought Michael Jackson would have been a much better player if they wanted to take a talented cornerback who has some actual speed. McSorely fits the system for what they’re doing at quarterback, but I don’t see him ever seeing the field in regular season games. Overall, the Ravens picked up PLAYMAKERS with home run speed and ability, which is something they haven’t drafted in a long time on the offensive side of the ball. The pressure is on the coaching staff to develop Lamar properly and use Brown and Hill effectively and creatively to take advantage of their elite skills. If this offense maximizes their potential, they could be downright scary.

Pittsburgh Steelers: B –

Round 1 (10): Devin Bush, ILB

Round 3 (66): Diontae Johnson, WR

Round 3 (83): Justin Layne, CB

Round 4 (122): Benny Snell, RB

Round 5 (141): Zach Gentry, TE

Round 6 (175): Sutton Smith, OLB

Round 6 (192): Isaiah Buggs, DT

Round 6 (192): Ulysees Gilbert, ILB

Round 7 (219): Derwin Gray, T

I love Devin Bush and think he is the best inside linebacker in the draft. He has elite sideline to sideline speed, excellent instincts, and he’s an impressive tackler who takes great angles. Bush can do it all and will be the perfect fit for the Steelers to chase down all of the speed that the Ravens present with Lamar Jackson, Hollywood Brown and Justice Hill. Justin Layne is one of my favorite cornerbacks in the draft. He’s got an excellent combination of size and speed, with long arms and good speed. He’s also very physical and dominates in press coverage. Layne is a poor man’s Richard Sherman. Benny Snell is a solid running back and should excel to help share the load with James Conner. The Steelers really beefed things up at linebacker, corner and RB, which were 3 of their top needs. I do feel that they missed the boat a bit in terms of finding a stud replacement for the loss of Antonio Brown. Diontae Johnson doesn’t seem to be the guy to fill that role. I think Hakeem Butler would have been a much better pick for the Steelers. Their picks in rounds 5-7 don’t offer much upside.

Buffalo Bills: B-

Round 1 (9): Ed Oliver, DT

Round 2 (38): Cody Ford, T/G

Round 3 (74): Devin Singletary, RB

Round 3 (96): Dawson Knox, TE

Round 5 (147): Vosean Joseph, OLB

Round 6 (181): Jaquan Johnson, S

Round 7 (225): Darryl Johnson, DE

Round 7 (228): Tommy Sweeney, TE

The Bills nailed it on their first 3 picks with Oliver, Ford and Singletary. All have monstrous upside and are all but locks to be every week starters with solid contributions.

Chicago Bears: B-

Round 3 (10): RB David Montgomery, Iowa State

Round 4 (126): WR Riley Ridley, Georgia

Round 6 (205): CB Duke Shelley, Kansas State

Round 7 (222): RB Kerrith Whyte, Florida Atlantic

Round 7 (238): CB Stephen Denmark, Valdosta State

The Bears didn’t have any 1st or 2nd round picks, so it’s hard to expect too much in this draft, but I absolutely love the David Montgomery pick in the 3rd round. With the loss of Jordan Howard, David Montgomery is the perfect selection to come in and provide an upgrade. Montgomery can carry the load on the first two downs before bringing in Tarik Cohen on 3rd downs. I’m not a huge Ridley fan, but he’s good value in the 4th round. I love David Montgomery enough to label this draft as a B- for the bears, especially when taking into account that they were without 1st and 2nd round picks.

Washington Redskins: B-

Round 1 (15): Dwayne Haskins, QB

Round 1 (26): Montez Sweat, DE

Round 3 (76): Terry McLaurin, WR

Round 4 (112): Bryce Love, RB

Round 4 (131): Wes Martin, G

Round 5 (153): Ross Pierschbacher, C

Round 5 (173): Cole Holcomb, ILB

Round 6 (206): Kelvin Harmon, WR

Round 7 (227): Jimmy Moreland, CB

Round 7 (253): Jordan Brailford, DE

Standing pat at 15 and not trading up to go get Haskins was a smart move. I’m not the biggest Haskins fan, but he’s decent value at 15 if you believe he’s your franchise quarterback. Sweat has the potential to be a premier pass rusher in the NFL. McLaurin was a bit of a reach in the early 3rd round, but he brings some serious speed threat and also brings the connection he had with Haskins at Ohio State. If Bryce Love gets healthy, he can be a home run hitter at running back. I love Ross Pierschbacher in the 5th round and he should be a solid center. Harmon provides some potential at receiver in the 6th round as well. I would’ve liked to see them focus on some more upper tier offensive linemen to protect Haskins. Haskins is slow and doesn’t have great pocket presence, so he needs his line to secure a strong pocket and give him plenty of time to scan the field. Overall though, a solid draft for the skins.

Cincinnati Bengals: C+

Round 1 (11): Jonah Williams, T

Round 2 (52): Drew Sample, TE

Round 3 (72): Germaine Pratt, ILB

Round 4 (104): Ryan Finley, QB

Round 4 (125): Renell Wren, DT

Round 4 (136): Michael Jordan, G

Round 6 (182): Trayvon Williams, RB

Round 6 (210): Deshaun Davis, OLB

Round 6 (211): Rodney Anderson, RB

Round 7 (223): Jordan Brown, CB

I’m not the biggest Jonah Williams fan, as I think he’s a bit soft and didn’t show up when playing against elite competition. I do love Germaine Pratt, Trayvon Williams and Rodney Anderson. There’s a ton of upside there. Overall, there’s nothing from this draft that makes you think that the Bengals will be significantly better than last year. I’m not a Finley fan and don’t think he’s the future quarterback.

Miami Dolphins: C+

Round 1 (13): Christian Wilkins, DT

Round 3 (78): Michael Deiter, G

Round 5 (151): Andrew Van Ginkel, OLB

Round 6 (202): Isaiah Prince, T

Round 7 (233): Chandler Cox, FB

Round 7 (234): Myles Gaskin, RB

Christian Wilkins, Michael Deiter and Myles Gaskin were high on my board and I think they’ll be solid starters for the Dolphins. The other picks are nothing more than backups.

New York Jets – C+

Round 1 (3): Quinnen Williams, DT

Round 3 (68): Jachai Polite, DE

Round 3 (92): Chuma Edoga, T

Round 4 (121): Trevon Wesco, TE

Round 5 (157): Blake Cashman, ILB

Round 6 (196): Blessuan Austin, CB

The Jets got the best player in the draft in Quinnen Williams, who will dominate up the middle as he stuffs the run, eats up double teams, and gets pressure on the quarterback. Polite is a first round talent who slipped due to a really poor combine and reports of bad attitude and work ethic. If Polite puts things together, he could be good for double digit sacks. The rest of their picks in this draft were reaches and you’re looking at backup talent.

Tennessee Titans: C+

Round 1 (19): Jeffery Simmons, DT

Round 2 (51): AJ Brown, WR

Round 3 (82): Nate Davis, G

Round 4 (116): Amani Hooker, S

Round 5 (168): D’Andre Walker, DE

Round 6 (188): David Long Jr, ILB

Simmons has elite upside, but he’s coming off an ACL tear and an assault charge against a woman that caused the NFL to prohibit him from attending the combine. Simmons has plenty of risk to go alongside his monstrous upside. AJ Brown is my favorite all around receiver in this draft and he should complement Corey Davis very well and give this offense a nice boost. The rest of the picks don’t get me too excited, but Simmons and AJ Brown alone are enough to warrant a B-.

Minnesota Vikings: C

Round 1 (18): C Garrett Bradbury, NC State

Round 2 (50): TE Irv Smith Jr., Alabama

Round 3 (102): RB Alexander Mattison, Boise State

Round 4 (114): OG Dru Samia, Oklahoma

Round 5 (162): LB Cameron Smith, USC

Round 6 (190): DI Armon Watts, Arkansas

Round 6 (191): S Marcus Epps, Wyoming

Round 6 (193): T Olisaemeka Udoh, Elon

Round 7 (217): CB Kris Boyd, Texas

Round 7 (239): WR Dillon Mitchell, Oregon

Round 7 (247): WR Olabisi Johnson, Colorado State

Round 7 (250): LS Austin Cutting, Air Force

I love Garrett Bradbury and he helps improve an offensive line that was in desperate need of talent. Irv Smith is also a great selection at tight end with his elite speed and receiving skillset. The Mattison pick in the 3rd round was a reach and all of their picks after this left a lot to be desired. Bradbury and Smith were excellent picks that make up for the rest of the draft, which was a flop.

Los Angeles Rams: C

Round 2 (61): Taylor Rapp, S

Round 3 (70): Darrell Henderson, RB

Round 3 (79): David Long, CB

Round 3 (97): Bobby Evans, T

Round 4 (134): Greg Gaines, DL

Round 5 (169): David Edwards, T

Round 7 (243): Nick Scott, S

Round 7 (251): Dakota Allen, ILB

The Rams didn’t have a first round pick. I’m not a huge Rapp fan. I do absolutely love Darrell Henderson and think that if Gurley is still struggling with injuries next season, Henderson has the ability to step in and be the starting back with blazing speed and home run playmaking ability. Evans, Gaines and Edwards are all solid depth players.

Dallas Cowboys: C

Round 2 (58): Trysten Hill, DT

Round 3 (90): Connor McGovern, G

Round 4 (128): Tony Pollard, RB

Round 5 (158): Michael Jackson, CB

Round 5 (165): Joe Jackson, DE

Round 6 (213): Donovan Wilson, S

Round 7 (218): Mike Weber, RB

Round 7 (241): Jalen Jelks, DE

Hill was a serious reach in the second round. McGovern provides some depth and is decent value in the 3rd round. I do like Michael Jackson in the 5th and think he can be a solid 2nd CB. Mike Weber has the potential to be a great RB and is a solid backup to Zeke. The Cowboys didn’t have a first round pick, so we have to take that into account. I would’ve taken Andy Isabella or DK Metcalf in the 2nd round instead of Hill. If you really wanted a defensive tackle, go with Dre’Mont Jones there.

Los Angeles Chargers: C

Round 1 (28): Jerry Tillery, DT

Round 2 (60): Nasir Adderley, S

Round 3 (91): Trey Pipkins, T

Round 4 (130): Drue Tranquill, ILB

Round 5 (166): Easton Stick, QB

Round 6 (200): Emeke Egbule, ILB

Round 7 (242): Cortez Broughton, DT

Tillery has the talent to be an All-Pro and he fills a huge need, however it must be noted that he has character concerns and has been labeled a “bad teammate”. He’s known as a partier and locker room distraction. He was suspended from the Fiesta Bowl as a freshman due to violation of team rules. He also released a tweet that insinuated that his coach should be replaced. He also kicked a defender while stomping another’s leg. I’ll leave that up to scouts to determine if he’s past that at this point of his life. Adderley has potential but I’m not sold on him being a guaranteed productive starter. 3rd through 7th round picks don’t impress me much, but Tranquill seems like he could be solid.

Indianapolis Colts: C-

Round 2 (34): Rock Ya-Sin, CB

Round 2 (49): Ben Banogu, DE

Round 2 (59): Parris Campbell, WR

Round 3 (89): Bobby Okereke, ILB

Round 4 (109): Khari Willis, S

Round 5 (144): Marvell Tell, S

Round 5 (164): E.J. Speed, ILB

Round 6 (199): Gerri Green, DE

Round 7 (240): Jackson Barton, T

Round 7 (236): Javon Patterson, C

Rock Ya-Sin is a solid cornerback with a ton of upside. Parris Campbell isn’t a great route runner and lacks great hands, but he has blazing speed and is a home run threat whenever he’s on the field. I like these two picks for the Colts, but don’t see much else to be excited about.

Oakland Raiders: D

Round 1 (4): Clelin Ferrell, DE

Round 1 (24): Josh Jacobs, RB

Round 1 (27): Johnathan Abram, S

Round 2 (40): Trayvon Mullen, CB

Round 4 (106): Maxx Crosby, OLB

Round 4 (129): Isaiah Johnson, CB

Round 4 (137): Foster Moreau, TE

Round 5 (149): Hunter Renfrow, WR

Round 7 (230): Quinton Bell, DE

So I’m in the minority, but I love Clelin Ferrell and he’s in my top 5. However, knowing that he’s not going to be on other team’s top 10, it makes no sense to not trade down to double digits and gain a second round pick and still land Ferrell. This is a classic case of being fine with the player they took, but needing to call them out for being stupid and not maximizing value. I love Josh Jacobs and think he’s a dynamic running back with rare blend of size and speed who will make plays all over the field every Sunday. After Ferrell and Jacobs, I think they flopped on the rest of the draft. Abram can’t cover and I don’t care how hard you hit, if you can’t cover in the NFL, you’re useless, even as a strong safety. For having 3 first round picks and the ability to trade back and still get the player they wanted while adding another second round pick, I thought the Raiders failed miserably. Ferrell and Jacobs should be Pro Bowlers, so I can’t fail them completely.

Cleveland Browns: - D

Round 2 (46): Greedy Williams, CB

Round 3 (80): Sione Takitaki, ILB

Round 4 (119): Sheldrick Redwine, S

Round 5 (155): Mack Wilson, ILB

Round 5 (170): Austin Seibert, K

Round 6 (189): Drew Forbes, G

Round 7 (221): Donnie Lewis, CB

The only pick I like from the Browns in this draft is Greedy Williams. Greedy has excellent speed and coverage skills with elite upside. His footwork and technique needs work, but I think he will be a great corner in the NFL. His main downside is that he’s a weak tackler and looks like he prefers not to have to try to tackle unless he has to. As for the rest of the picks, I’m not a fan at all and see them as nothing more than project players. They’ll get a poor draft grade for the players they got in the draft, but let’s not forget that they got Odell Beckham Jr as part of trading away their 1st round pick.

Atlanta Falcons: D

Round 1 (14): Chris Lindstrom, G

Round 1 (31): Kaleb McGary, T

Round 4 (111): Kendall Sheffield, CB

Round 4 (135): John Cominksy, DT

Round 5 (152): Qadree Ollison, RB

Round 5 (172): Jordan Miller, CB

Round 6 (203): Marcus Green, WR

I love the focus on building the offensive line, however I think they took the wrong guys, and traded up when they should’ve traded down to get more picks. I think Garrett Bradbury is a much better player than Lindstrom and they should’ve either taken Bradbury at 14 or traded down to get Lindstrom at the end of the first round. With Cody Ford and Dalton Risner still on the board, I hate the idea of trading up into the first to take a less talented guy like McGary. The 4th, 5th and 6th round picks do nothing for me. Falcons could’ve gotten much better talent, traded down to acquire more picks, and maximized value.

San Francisco 49ers: D

Round 1 (2): Nick Bosa, DE

Round 2 (36): Deebo Samuel, WR

Round 3 (67): Jalen Hurd, WR

Round 4 (110): Mitch Wishnowsky, P

Round 5 (148): Dre Greenlaw, ILB

Round 6 (176): Kaden Smith, TE

Round 6 (183): Justin Skule, T

Round 6 (198): Tim Harris, CB

Nick Bosa is the best pass rusher in the draft and an absolute stud franchise player. I think Qunnen Williams is the better player overall, but I can’t argue with taking Bosa at 2. After Bosa, I think John Lynch missed on every single pick. Taking Deebo Samuel over AJ Brown was a mistake. Jalen Hurd was a serious reach with Hakeem Butler still available. How the hell do you take a punter in the 4th round with so much solid talent still available?

Seattle Seahawks: D

Round 1 (29): LJ Collier, DE

Round 2 (47): Marquise Blair, S

Round 2 (64): DK Metcalf, WR

Round 3 (88): Cody Barton, ILB

Round 4 (120): Gary Jennings, WR

Round 4 (124): Phil Haynes, G

Round 4 (132): Ugo Amadi, CB

Round 5 (142): Ben Burr-Kirven, ILB

Round 6 (204): Travis Homer, RB

Round 6 (209): Demarcus Christmas, DT

Round 7 (236): John Ursua, WR

Collier was a total reach in the first round and Blair in the second was also a head-scratcher. Again, if you like these guys, that’s fine, but don’t reach on them in the first and second rounds when they’ll be there in the 3rd and 4th rounds. Metcalf in the late second was great value with tremendous upside and the potential to be a starter now that Doug Baldwin is at the end of his career. Travis Homer and Christmas were good value picks at the end of the draft. Overall, I think the first two reach picks in the first two rounds will come back to bite the Seahawks.

Green Bay Packers: D

Round 1 (12): Rashan Gary, DE

Round 1 (21): Darnell Savage, S

Round 2 (44): Elgton Jenkins, C

Round 3 (75): Jace Sternberger, TE

Round 5 (150): Kingsley Keke, DT

Round 6 (185): Ka’dar Hollman, CB

Round 6 (194): Dexter Williams, RB

Round 7 (226): Ty Summers, ILB

Rashan Gary is my most overrated player in this draft. I think he’s a great athlete but an average football player. If he hasn’t been able to improve and be a dynamic force all through high school and college, then why should we believe that he’s going to take this massive leap at the pro level? Plus, he has a should injury and is going to miss time. I hate the Gary pick. I do really like Darnell Savage, but think 21 overall was a massive reach and he could’ve been picked up in the second round. Elgton Jenkins is a solid pick in the 2nd round to beef up the offensive line. I really like Sternberger as a receiving tight end and think he can be a playmaker down the road with Rodgers tossing him the ball. With two picks in the top 21, I think they should’ve come away with much better talent than Rashan Gary and Darnell Savage.

Detroit Lions: D

Round 1 (8): TJ Hockenson, TE

Round 2 (43): Jahlani Tavai, ILB

Round 3 (81): Will Harris, S

Round 4 (117): Austin Bryant, DE

Round 5 (146): Amani Oruwariye, CB

Round 6 (184): Travis Fulgham, WR

Round 6 (186): Ty Johnson, RB

Round 7 (224): Isaac Nauta, TE

Round 7 (229): P.J. Johnson, DT

Hockenson could be the next Rob Gronkowski and is also an excellent blocker. While I like Oruwariye in the 5th round, I thought the rest of the Lions picks were weak. They got no help at offensive line and the inside linebacker they chose was questionable.

New York Giants: F

Round 1 (6): Daniel Jones, QB

Round 1 (17): Dexter Lawrence, DT

Round 1 (30): DeAndre Baker, CB

Round 3 (95): Oshane Ximines, DE

Round 4 (108): Julian Love, CB

Round 5 (143): Ryan Connelly, ILB

Round 5 (171): Darius Slayton, WR

Round 6 (180): Corey Ballentine, CB

Round 7 (232): George Asafo-Adeji, T

Round 7 (245): Christopher Slayton, DT

I’m ok with being in love with Daniel Jones and taking him as your quarterback over Haskins. I can support that. But what I can’t understand is why you take him at #6 overall? Nobody was going to take him in the top 10 and with Josh Allen still on the board and regarded as a top 4 pick, I guarantee the Giants could’ve traded back to the early teens, still get Daniel Jones, and receive an extra second round pick for trading back. I like Dexter Lawrence but I think the Giants needed offensive line help more than a defensive tackle. With Garret Bradbury, Andre Dillard, and Cody Ford still on the board as elite offensive linemen, I would’ve taken one of them. Or better yet, trade back, get more picks, and still get one of those 3. The Giants have way too many needs and would’ve benefited majorly by trading back on both picks. DeAndre Baker is ok at corner. I had Byron Murphy and Greedy Williams much higher on my board than Baker, so I don’t like it as a first round pick. With such huge needs at offensive line and 3 1st round picks, it’s embarrassing that the only offensive lineman you pick up is backup material at best in the 7th round. How do you expect Eli Manning or your new franchise quarterback to succeed with no time to throw the ball? Epic fail here for the Giants.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: F

Round 1 (5): Devin White, ILB

Round 2 (39): Sean Bunting, CB

Round 3 (94): Jamel Dean, CB

Round 3 (99): Mike Edwards, S

Round 4 (107): Anthony Nelson, DE

Round 5 (145): Matt Gay, K

Round 6 (208): Scott Miller, WR

Round 7 (215): Terry Beckner Jr, DT

I’m not a huge Devin White fan and thought that Josh Allen was the layup pick at 5. Bunting was a reach at cornerback with Greedy Williams still on the board. The Bucs fell for the crazy 40 time that Dean posted, but he’s just not a great football player. Nelson is decent value in the 4th round. Overall, I think the Bucs choked in this draft.

Kansas City Chiefs: F

Round 2 (56): Mecole Hardman, WR

Round 2 (63): Juan Thornhill, S

Round 3 (84): Khalen Saunders, DT

Round 6 (201): Rashad Fenton, CB

Round 6 (214): Darwin Thompson, RB

Round 7 (216): Nick Allegretti, G

Thornhill is the only player here who is decent and even then, it’s just average value there for the talent you get. Hardman as a serious reach in the second round and is not anywhere near the replacement you need for Tyreek Hill. If I had to bet, I’d say the Chiefs take a serious step backwards this season and may miss the playoffs. You can’t lose Hill and Hunt and whiff on the draft and expect to pick up right where you left off.

Houston Texans: F

Round 1 (23): Tytus Howard, T

Round 2 (54): Lonnie Johnson, CB

Round 2 (55): Max Scharping, T

Round 3 (86): Kahale Warring, TE

Round 5 (161): Charles Omenihu, DE

Round 6 (195): Xavier Crawford, CB

Round 7 (220): Cullen Gillaspia, FB

What a disaster for the Texans. They needed offensive line help in the worst possible way and had Cody Ford, Dalton Risner, and Jawaan Taylor on the board when they were on the clock. For some insane reason, they decided to take a mid-round talent at best in Tytus Howard from Alabama State. Even the Texans admitted he was a project player. Why the hell are you taking a project player from Alabama State in the first round? Even if you love him, waiting until the 3rd round to take him. This is a waste of a first round pick. And considering that you had elite options in Cody Ford and Dalton Risner to lock up a solid guaranteed starter for the next decade, it just makes it more painful to process. Things didn’t get much better in the rest of the draft either, as they only landed one player in my top 100. Horrible draft and I give my condolences to all Texans fans during this difficult time.
