    Titans. Honestly, I give it a C. I think a lot of people get hyped up with their picks and overrate their drafts, but if I am being honest, I think it was a solid draft but I don't think I can consider it an A or B. For one, we didn't have a ton of draft capital so it would take a LOT for me to give it an A based on that alone. I do think we got excellent value with our second round pick. I am hoping our 3rd round pick out of App. State is really surprises. I like his yards per carry average and he seems like a great compliment to D. Henry. I can remember when K. Byard was picked in the third round and I was thinking "who is this guy?" So this App. State dude might be a steal. The thing that does make me grade it as a C is that I like the first round pick..great fit... but he's a really really big, heavy o-lineman and I just hope he takes pride in conditioning and working hard. He seems to now and I hope that continues. I just remember when we drafted Chance Warmack and that guy was pretty much a total bust and he was top 10 pick. I think the grade of this draft really falls on how well Isaiah Wilson ends up playing. I am hoping for the best.

    Interesting take away from the Steelers post draft-press conference:
    They purposely did not sign a lot of UDFA and went with XFL players because they felt with potential alterations to the offseason they feel more comfortable with guys who have been through NFL/professional offseasons already.

    1. Clyde Edwards-Helaire
    2. Willie Gay
    3. Lucas Niang
    4. LíJarius Sneed
    5. Michael Danna
    7. Thakarius Keyes

    First two days I was damn near at an A. And thatís with me not being a huge fan of taking RBís early. Day 3.... not so much

    CEH While he shouldnít be the top RB for most teams will fit in perfectly for us. Once we lost Kareem Hunt we have never been the same in the RZ. His ability to catch out of the backfield seems the best in the class by a good bit

    Willie Gay might have flown under the radar for a lot of fans. But chiefs fans have been watching him for a while, because landing Queen and Murray in the first were a pipe dream. Another troubled player, but might be the best athlete at LB including Simmons

    Niang.. I didnít know much about. But he seems to be a player who can start at guard. And work his way to a starting tackle. Didnít give up a sack in his 1,000 career pass reps in his college year. But another guy who dropped for concerns. This one injury

    Sneed.. played his senior year at safety. Before that was a corner where he will move back to. Good speed. But probably wasnít the best DB on his team. I wanted Bryce Hall so bad after watching Juan Thornhill the year before. But his injury must be pretty serious. Looked like he could have been a first rounder had he declared after his junior year

    The last 2 probably would have went undrafted. Just gonna have to trust Veach on that

    lions get a C maybe a D

    their pass rush is their biggest weakness, and they have a below average oline.

    so what do they do? use their first two picks on a CB and a RB, both positions that can be useless without support from a pass rush or an oline.

    That quote always cracks me up.

    I have a love/hate with draft grades. In a few years all of these grades will be way off.

    Overall, Bills get a solid B- from me. I love Epenesa. He isnít a sexy pick, but a blue collar guy who will fit right in with this defense. Moss, Davis, and Fromm are all intriguing. I was surprised we didnít see a DB earlier.

    Jacksonville stood out to me as having a very good draft. Carolina and Indianapolis as well.

    OK so the Vikings actually made 15 picks?

    I give them an A just for that.

    I believe it's a 7-round record
    I was told the Vikings were stupid for having all those picks, but for one, the Vikings have fewer than normal guys under contract and two, Spielman likes to us late picks (especially this year) to prioritize guys who may otherwise be UDFAs he'd have to compete with other teams for. The 2 trades he did make netted him 3 higher 2021 picks so he already has 12 in 2021 (with a compensatory pick or two likely added)

    I loved their Day 1 and 2, although I thought they'd move around some in round 3. Day 3 was something of a head scratcher just from the standpoint of coming into it with 13 picks...and never trading up. Maybe when they tried, they couldn't or it was too rich, I don't know....but the guys they picked are growing on me (although I really wanted Quez Watkins!)

    Given the odd offseason, they supposedly prioritized 'clean' players, guys they were comfortable with medicals and character issues....so maybe that impacted some trade opportunities and picks.....and after all, they scouted every player more than I scouted all of them put together. I'd have preferred another WR, but they signed a solid one in UDFA.

    B+/A- for the Vikings from me
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    B+ for the Browns. Wills is a phenomenal prospect, and trading #41 for #44 to pick up a 5th rounder and STILL landing Grant Delpit was balls. Some had Delpit as a top 15 overall pick before his high ankle sprain. Jordan Elliot is a pass rush specialist. I don't know much about Jacob Phillips, but Harrison Bryant was another good selection in the 4th round. Entire AFC North looks like they had good drafts.

    The Baker has come. Believe the hype.

    B+ for Denver.
    Day 1 A-Jeudy is a hell of a pick, that takes away attention from Noah and Sutton. Best route runner in the draft.

    Day 2 B- Hamler gives Denver something we didnít have, questionable hands though. Cush can be penciled in at C from day 1 allowing Glasgow to be G where he was better at. A CB that I know Mel said will be a reserve, but from a system look he fits and we need someone who can play on the other side of Bouye. Agim doesnít have to come in immediately but shows pass rushing potential.

    Day 3 A- I loved Denverís day three picks. Potentially a TE that can play along Fant with athleticism. Strnad that can be a cover LB but isnít forced into big playing time day 1. Muti a nice backup interior lineman. Tuszka who has the potential to be a quality rusher.

    Jeudy and hamler is a great pairing in my opinion. You got the amazing route runner that will find holes in a defense in jeudy and the crazy fast hamler that will take the top off a defense and make things even easier underneath for jeudy. Great picks.

    Your baby can't do this

    Eagles:

    Day 1 -

    The Eagles single greatest need was to draft a WR that could play right away that could stretch the field. Well, they went and drafted arguably the best deep threat in the entire draft class. Mission accomplished. Only a couple minor gripes with what they did day 1. One being that they didn't get any surplus value at the pick with Reagor being taken at the height of his range. The other being that a potential generational WR fell to a spot that they reasonably could have made a trade up for. My guess is that it probably would have taken their 2021 2nd and maybe they could've gotten a day 3 pick back from Atlanta. For those reasons I'll give Howie a solid B for his work on day 1.

    Day 2 -

    Well, the good news is that Howie filled 2 needs with his day 2 picks. Backup QB was definitely not in their top 3 needs, but it was a need, while LB was definitely in their top 3 needs. The other issue being that neither pick was great value where they were taken imo. Neither were egregious reaches, but I'd say both were opportunities to trade down a few spots and pick up an extra pick day 3 pick which would not have been a bad strategy with many needs going into the draft. Hard to say because you never know if there is a team looking to move up behind you and if you have conviction that those 2 guys are significantly better than your next choice it's difficult to play the trade game. Mims being right there for the taking stung a bit as well. Day 2 wasn't the disaster most Eagles fans are making it out to be, but despite liking the players that Howie took and both filling a need I can't really give a positive grade here. C-

    Day 3 -

    This was Howie as the best version of himself. Wheeling and dealing with many needs still to address after making a couple of bold picks. Howie did an excellent job of addressing all those needs and arguably every pick that he made on day 3, said player should not have still been available when picked. It's hard to pick a favorite move on day 3 because Howie really killed it and had probably the best day 3 that I can ever remember the Eagles having. Howie deserves a pat on the back for this one. A+

    Overall -

    Clearly Howie had a plan to add a lot of speed and athleticism in this draft. Even both day 2 picks that most Eagles fans are groaning about were arguably one of the most athletic players at their position group in this draft. Howie managed to add 4 new fast and athletic WR's for Carson. 3 being via draft and 1 via trade. He did a great job particularly on day 3 of taking advantage of th surplus of value at the WR position in this draft and took multiple shots at addressing the Eagles biggest Achilles heel last season. It would be foolish to think that every single one will pan out, but it was a focused effort to find WR's that fit the scheme and cater to Carson's strengths as a QB.

    Despite the roller coaster ride Howie put us through, it's initially a solid B draft for the Eagles.
