2. Tennesse Titans: Marcus Mariota QB

Should of traded the pick. There were a lot of good offers on the table. 

C

 

3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dante Fowler Jr. DE

Ehh..Williams would of been the better pick

B-

 

4. Oakland Raiders: Amari Cooper WR

Great pairing for Derek Carr, but with Williams still on the board they should of picked him. Should be a good pro for a long time.

B+

 

5. Washington Redksins Brandon Scherff OT

Again...should of been Williams with their D-line losses in free agency, but best OL in the draft. Tough to ever complain about that.

B+

 

6.  New York Jets: Leonard Williams DT

Brilliant! Love this pick for them. Jets fans are already chanting DE-FENSE!

A+

 

7. Chicago Bears: Kevin White WR

Just what they needed. Good Pick

A

 

 

8. Atlanta Falcons: Vic Beasley DE/OLB

Solid pick that helps fill a need, but Matty Ice spends way too much time on his back.

B-

 

9. New York Giants: Ereck Flowers

Love that they went OL, but did they pick the right one? Seems like a little bit of a reach here. 

B-

 

10. St. Louis Rams: Todd Gurley

Doesn't make any sense to me. They have a stable of quality backs. 

D

 

11. Minnesota Vikings: Trae Waynes

Best corner in the draft, but I don't think he should of gone this high.  They should of given Bridgewater a weapon to work with.

C+

 

12. Cleveland Browns: Danny Shelton DT

Love it!  Definitely need help up front and got it. 

A-

 

13. New Orleans Saints: Andrus Peat OT

Good Solid Pick. Thought they would go defense, but nothing wrong with solidifying the o-line

B

 

14. Miami Dolphins: DeVante Parker WR

Nice piece for Tannehill. Good pick, but not 100% confident he's a top 15 pick. 

B+

 

15.  San Diego Chargers: Melvin Gordon RB

They knew what they needed/wanted and went for it.  I like that.  Good pick

B

 

16. Houston Texans:  Kevin Johnson CB

Took care of a need here,  but I like Marcus Peters upside more. 

B-

 

17. San Fransico 49ers: Arik Armstead DE

O-line was a mess last year with injuries and poor play, don't like this pick.

C-

 

18. Kansas City Chiefs: Marcus Peters CB

Solid Pick. 2nd best corner in the draft. Has great upside. 

B+

 

 

19. Cleveland Browns: Cameron Erving C

Not sure this was exactly a need, but tough/smart player.

B-

 

20. Philadelphia Eagles: Nelson Agholor WR

I don't want to pretend I know what Chip Kelly is up to

D

 

21.  Cincinnati Bengals: Cedric Ogbuehi OT

I guess they think he will recover quickly or that they are deep enough to add a player that won't be ready this season. I figure Randy Gregory/Shane Ray/La'ell Collins would of been perfect for them. They love players with off-field issues.

C-

 

22. Pittsburgh Steelers: Alvin Dupree DE

Perfect Steelers pick.  Can they turn him into a star without Dick Lebeau?

B

 

23.  Denver Broncos: Shane Ray DE

Weed is legal in Colorado, great pick for everyone involved.

B+

 

24. Arizona Cardinals: DJ Humphries OT

They need to protect Carson Palmer and open holes for Andre Ellington. This will help big-time

B+

 

25. Carolina Panthers: Shaq Thompson OLB

Dumb. Just Dumb. Offensive line is a disaster so let's pick an outside linebacker that likes playing running back. DUMB

F

 

 

26. Baltimore Ravens: Brreshad Perriman WR

Great replacement for Torrey Smith.  Knock on him is his hands, but that is overplayed.

A-

 

27.  Dallas Cowboys: Byron Jones CB

Combine freak. Can he broad jump during the game??  I don't trust him.

C

 

28. Detroit Lions: Laken Tomlinson OG

Filled a glaring need, but does Duke produce first round NFL players? 

B-

 

29. Indianapolis Colts: Phillip Dorsett WR

Doesn't make sense to me.  Feels like Chip Kelly drafted for them. They have many more needs. WR is a strength. Head scratcher here

C-

 

30. Green Bay Packers: Damrious Randall FS

They must be moving him to CB, if not this doesn't make any sense after drafting HA HA Clinton Dix last year. 

C-

 

31. New England Patriots: Malcom Brown DT

Good Bye Vince Wilfork. Hello Malcom. Great all value and filled a need.
