NFL Draft 2019: Grading each team's selections

NFL Draft 2019: Grading each team's selections

The dust has settled on a 2019 NFL Draft that will prove a defining one for numerous franchises in the coming years.

Kyler Murray’s selection with the first overall pick will live in infamy if he flops for the Cardinals, while the criticism is already flooding in for the Giants after taking Daniel Jones sixth overall.

We have a long wait to see how these prospects perform on the field, but that doesn’t mean we can’t assess the merits of each team’s draft straight away.

Here we grade all 32 teams on their selections.

Arizona Cardinals

Round 1 (1): QB Kyler Murray, Oklahoma
Round 2 (33): CB Byron Murphy, Washington
Round 2 (62): WR Andy Isabella, Massachusetts
Round 3 (65): Edge Zach Allen, Boston College
Round 4 (103): WR Hakeem Butler, Iowa State
Round 5 (139): S Deionte Thompson, Alabama
Round 6 (174): WR KeeSean Johnson, Fresno State
Round 6 (179): G Lamont Gaillard, Georgia
Round 7 (248): OT Joshua Miles, Morgan State
Round 7 (249): DL Michael Dogbe, Temple
Round 7 (254): TE Caleb Wilson, UCLA

Draft Grade: B+

Analysis: Murray has the potential to be a superstar in Kliff Kingsbury’s offense and he will need to exceed expectations to justify passing on elite defensive talent to take a quarterback for the second straight year. Murphy and Thompson each bring playmaking upside to the secondary but Isabella and Butler will each have to overcome issues with drops if they are to help a previously talent-poor offense make significant strides.

Atlanta Falcons

Round 1 (14): G Chris Lindstrom, Boston College
Round 1 (31): OT Kaleb McGary, Washington
Round 4 (111): CB Kendall Sheffield, Ohio State
Round 4 (135): DL John Cominksy, Charleston
Round 5 (152): RB Qadree Ollison, Pittsburgh
Round 5 (172): CB Jordan Miller, Washington
Round 6 (203): WR Marcus Green, Louisiana-Monroe

Draft Grade: C

Analysis: The Falcons provided little to excite their fans in this draft but it is clear their aim was to find better protection for Matt Ryan. Lindstrom and McGary should prove assets in that regard while the former has the athletic ability to have a positive influence on Atlanta’s zone running attack.

Baltimore Ravens

Round 1 (25): WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma
Round 3 (85): DE Jaylon Ferguson, Louisiana Tech
Round 3 (93): WR Miles Boykin, Notre Dame
Round 4 (113): RB Justice Hill, Oklahoma State
Round 4 (123): G Ben Powers, Oklahoma
Round 4 (127): CB Iman Marshall, USC
Round 5 (160): DL Daylon Mack, Texas A&M
Round 6 (197): QB Trace McSorley, Penn State

Draft Grade: A-

Analysis: The Ravens selected the best receiver in the draft in Brown and paired him with a high-upside athletic freak in the form of Boykin. Lamar Jackson has no excuse not to be productive in the passing game with those new weapons. Ferguson, who became the NCAA career sack leader in 2018, and Mack represent excellent value picks while Marshall brings the ability to play both cornerback and safety.

Buffalo Bills

Round 1 (9): DL Ed Oliver, Houston
Round 2 (38): OT/G Cody Ford, Oklahoma
Round 3 (74): RB Devin Singletary, FAU
Round 3 (96): TE Dawson Knox, Ole Miss
Round 5 (147): LB Vosean Joseph, Florida
Round 6 (181): S Jaquan Johnson, Miami (Fla.)
Round 7 (225): Edge Darryl Johnson, North Carolina A&T
Round 7 (228): TE Tommy Sweeney, Boston College

Draft Grade: C

Analysis: Even at ninth overall, Oliver could prove to be one of the steals of the draft. The versatile Ford should help buy Josh Allen plenty of time while Knox gives the Bills quarterback an athletic weapon who was under-utilized in college. In an offseason where the Bills have stock-piled running backs, the selection of Singletary was an eyebrow-raiser.

Carolina Panthers

Round 1 (14): DE Brian Burns, Florida State
Round 2 (37): OT Greg Little, Ole Miss
Round 3 (100): QB Will Grier, West Virginia
Round 4 (115): Edge Christian Miller, Alabama
Round 5 (154): RB Jordan Scarlett, Florida
Round 6 (212): OT Dennis Daley, South Carolina
Round 7 (237): WR Terry Godwin, Georgia

Draft Grade: B

Analysis: The Panthers have long since required pass rush help and significantly addressed that need with Burns and Miller. If Grier can discover some consistency he could well develop into a capable NFL starter. Scarlett should prove a powerful complement to Christian McCaffrey while Godwin is a sharp route-runner with a decent shot to make the roster and become a regular contributor in the passing game.

Chicago Bears

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

Draft Grade: D

Analysis: Montgomery has the vision and elusiveness to make an immediate impact at the next level but it is tough to justify spending two of five picks on the running back position in the modern NFL. Despite his poor testing numbers, Ridley’s skills as a route-runner and pass-catcher should help him become a favorite of Mitchell Trubisky early in his career.

Cincinnati Bengals

Round 1 (11): OT Jonah Williams, Alabama
Round 2 (52): TE Drew Sample, Washington
Round 3 (72): LB Germaine Pratt, NC State
Round 4 (104): QB Ryan Finley, NC State
Round 4 (125): DL Renell Wren, Arizona State
Round 4 (136): G Michael Jordan, Ohio State
Round 6 (182): RB Trayveon Williams, Texas A&M
Round 6 (210): LB Deshaun Davis, Auburn
Round 6 (211): RB Rodney Anderson, Oklahoma
Round 7 (223): CB Jordan Brown, South Dakota State

Draft Grade: D

Analysis: Williams provides much-needed help up front for the Bengals, but theirs was a draft lacking in difference-makers. Why Cincinnati felt the need to trade up for Finley is anyone’s guess and, though Williams and Anderson are both outstanding talents at running back, selecting both was superfluous, particularly with the latter’s injury history.

Cleveland Browns

Round 2 (46): CB Greedy Williams, LSU
Round 3 (80): LB Sione Takitaki, BYU
Round 4 (119): S Sheldrick Redwine, Miami
Round 5 (155): LB Mack Wilson, Alabama
Round 5 (170): K Austin Seibert, Oklahoma
Round 6 (189): G Drew Forbes, Southeast Missouri
Round 7 (221): CB Donnie Lewis, Tulane

Draft Grade: B

Analysis: Even without a first-round pick, the Browns can do little wrong. If they can harness consistent effort from Williams then he could form a formidable cornerback duo with Denzel Ward. The future is bright in the middle of the field after the selections of Takitaki, Redwine and Wilson.

Dallas Cowboys

Round 2 (58): DL Trysten Hill, UCF
Round 3 (90): G Connor McGovern, Penn State
Round 4 (128): RB Tony Pollard, Memphis
Round 5 (158): CB Michael Jackson, Miami (Fla.)
Round 5 (165): Edge Joe Jackson, Miami (Fla.)
Round 6 (213): S Donovan Wilson, Texas A&M
Round 7 (218): RB Mike Weber, Ohio State
Round 7 (241): Edge Jalen Jelks, Oregon

Draft Grade: C –

Analysis: Both sides of the trenches were bolstered on day two, with Hill’s physical gifts and McGovern’s versatility to play guard and center sure to be reasons why the Cowboys were drawn to them. Joe Jackson and Jelks were each strong value picks on day three who have the potential to make a positive contribution to the pass rush.

Denver Broncos

Round 1 (20): TE Noah Fant, Iowa
Round 2 (41): OT Dalton Risner, Kansas State
Round 2 (42): QB Drew Lock, Missouri
Round 3 (71): DL Dre’Mont Jones, Ohio State
Round 5 (156): Edge Justin Hollins, Oregon
Round 6 (187): WR Juwann Winfree, Colorado

Draft Grade: B

Analysis: The Broncos were able to trade down 10 picks and still land a difference-maker on offense in Fant. Risner is a high-character, versatile force who can play every position on the offensive line, making him a tremendous asset to a Broncos team that has endured continual issues in the trenches. Their trade up to land Lock will go down as another quarterback whiff by John Elway if he cannot curb his significant problems with accuracy.

Detroit Lions

Round 1 (8): TE T.J. Hockenson, Iowa
Round 2 (43): LB Jahlani Tavai, Hawaii
Round 3 (81): S Will Harris, Boston College
Round 4 (117): Edge Austin Bryant, Clemson
Round 5 (146): CB Amani Oruwariye, Penn State
Round 6 (184): WR Travis Fulgham, Old Dominion
Round 6 (186): RB Ty Johnson, Maryland
Round 7 (224): TE Isaac Nauta, Georgia
Round 7 (229): DL P.J. Johnson, Arizona

Draft Grade: C

Analysis: The positional value of taking a tight end in the top 10 is debatable, but there is no questioning Hockenson’s all-round ability. Beyond the former Hawkeye star the Lions’ best pick came on day three, with the addition of a long and productive corner in Oruwarlye.

Green Bay Packers

Round 1 (12): Edge Rashan Gary, Michigan
Round 1 (21): S Darnell Savage, Maryland
Round 2 (44): C Elgton Jenkins, Mississippi State
Round 3 (75): TE Jace Sternberger, Texas A&M
Round 5 (150): DL Kingsley Keke, Texas A&M
Round 6 (185): CB Ka’dar Hollman, Toledo
Round 6 (194):  RB Dexter Williams, Notre Dame
Round 7 (226): LB Ty Summers, TCU

Draft Grade: B-

Analysis: Gary did not really have the production to go as high as he did but the landing spot could hardly be better with Green Bay having already signed Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith in free agency. Gary will have little pressure on him as a rotational piece but the same cannot be said of Savage after the Packers made the move to trade up for him. That felt like a reach but Sternberger was an excellent value pick at a position Green Bay has had issues with for a long time.

Houston Texans

Round 1 (23): OT Tytus Howard, Alabama State
Round 2 (54): CB Lonnie Johnson, Kentucky
Round 2 (55): OT Max Scharping, Northern Illinois
Round 3 (86): TE Kahale Warring, San Diego State
Round 5 (161): DL Charles Omenihu, Texas
Round 6 (195): CB Xavier Crawford, Central Michigan
Round 7 (220): FB Cullen Gillaspie, Texas A&M

Draft Grade: B+

Analysis: Deshaun Watson was not permitted to fly to a game at one point last season such was the beating he took behind the Texans’ dreadful offensive line. Houston will hope Howard and Scharping can fix their problems in the trenches while the Texans added playmakers on both sides of the ball in Johnson, Warring and Omenihu.

Indianapolis Colts

Round 2 (34): CB Rock Ya-Sin, Temple
Round 2 (49): Edge Ben Banogu, TCU
Round 2 (59): WR Parris Campbell, Ohio State
Round 3 (89): LB Bobby Okereke, Stanford
Round 4 (109): S Khari Willis, Michigan State
Round 5 (144): S Marvell Tell, USC
Round 5 (164): LB E.J. Speed, Tarleton State
Round 6 (199): Edge Gerri Green, Mississippi State
Round 7 (240): OT Jackson Barton, Utah
Round 7 (236): C Javon Patterson, Ole Miss

Draft Grade: C

Analysis: The Colts and general manager Chris Ballard have received plenty of plaudits in recent times but, beyond the addition of the uber-competitive Ya-Sin, there was not too much worthy of praise in this draft. Banogu and Campbell are each significant projections but do at least bring significant speed, arguably the most coveted trait among NFL evaluators.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Round 1 (7): Edge Josh Allen, Kentucky
Round 2 (35): OT Jawaan Taylor, Florida
Round 3 (69): TE Josh Oliver, San Jose State
Round 3 (98): LB Quincy Williams, Murray State
Round 5 (140): RB Ryquell Armstead, Temple
Round 6 (178): QB Gardner Minshew, Washington State
Round 7 (235): DL Dontavius Russell, Auburn

Draft Grade: B

Analysis: The Jaguars nailed their first two picks, partly due to Allen falling right into their grasp, and added a big imposing target for Nick Foles with their third. After a dismal 2018 for Leonard Fournette, Armstead provides some desperately needed competition.

Kansas City Chiefs

Round 2 (56): Mecole Hardman, Georgia
Round 2 (63): S Juan Thornhill, Virginia
Round 3 (84): DL Khalen Saunders, Western Illinois
Round 6 (201): CB Rashad Fenton, South Carolina
Round 6 (214): RB Darwin Thompson, Utah State
Round 7 (216): OG Nick Allegretti, Illinois

Draft Grade: B-

Analysis: Without a first-round pick after the Frank Clark trade, the Chiefs look to have found a replacement for Tyreek Hill in the lighting fast Hardman. Thornhill brings cornerback-safety versatility but desperately needs to improve as a tackler. Saunders should thrive playing next to Chris Jones on the defensive interior.

Los Angeles Chargers

Round 1 (28): DL Jerry Tillery, Notre Dame
Round 2 (60): S Nasir Adderley, Delaware
Round 3 (91): OT Trey Pipkins, Sioux Falls
Round 4 (130): LB Drue Tranquill, Notre Dame
Round 5 (166): QB Easton Stick, North Dakota State
Round 6 (200): LB Emeke Egbule, Houston
Round 7 (242): DL Cortez Broughton, Cincinnati

Draft Grade: A

Analysis: The Chargers added to an already vaunted defense in a big way. The addition of an athletic disruptor like Tillery to the middle of the defensive line is great news for Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram. Adderley can form a dynamic safety duo, while Tranquill, a former safety himself, brings yet more athleticism to the middle of the field. Late-round picks Egbule and Broughton each bring pass-rush upside.

Los Angeles Rams

Round 2 (61): S Taylor Rapp, Washington
Round 3 (70): RB Darrell Henderson, Memphis
Round 3 (79): CB David Long, Michigan
Round 3 (97): OT Bobby Evans, Oklahoma
Round 4 (134): Greg Gaines DL, Washington
Round 5 (169): T David Edwards, Wisconsin
Round 7 (243): S Nick Scott, Penn State
Round 7 (251): LB Dakota Allen, Texas Tech

Draft Grade: B+

Analysis: The big question here is what drafting Henderson says about Todd Gurley’s knee, but he is still a valuable insurance policy who should contribute immediately on the ground and in the passing game. After trading out of the first round, the Rams snagged a versatile safety many expected to go day one in Rapp. Long has the ability to eventually win a starting role in the secondary while Evans and Edwards provide much-needed depth to an offensive line featuring a 37-year-old tackle in Andrew Whitworth.

Miami Dolphins

Round 1 (13): DL Christian Wilkins, Clemson
Round 3 (78): G Michael Deiter, Wisconsin
Round 5 (151): LB Andrew Van Ginkel, Wisconsin
Round 6 (202): OT Isaiah Prince, Ohio State
Round 7 (233): FB Chandler Cox, Auburn
Round 7 (234): RB Myles Gaskin, Washington

Draft Grade: C+

Analysis: The Dolphins’ draft was elevated by them using their second-round pick to acquire a quarterback who should accelerate the franchise’s rebuilding mission. However, Josh Rosen and Christian Wilkins aside, this was not a draft in which Miami added much in the way of pieces to build around.

Minnesota Vikings

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): DL 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

Draft Grade: B

Analysis: Minnesota desperately needed to address the offensive line and did a nice job of doing so in this class. Bradbury should slot in straight away at center and Samia is also good enough to start as a rookie. Both should aid the running game, as should the addition of Mattison as the Vikings look to take some of the strain off Dalvin Cook. The blocking of Smith figures to help in that department and, amid talk of a possible Kyle Rudolph trade, there should be no concerns over him potentially starting at tight end given his skills as a route-runner and ability after the catch. Udoh, Boyd and Mitchell could all prove day-three steals down the line.

New England Patriots

Round 1 (32): WR N’Keal Harry, Arizona State
Round 2 (45): CB Joejuan Williams, Vanderbilt
Round 3 (77): DE Chase Winovich, Michigan
Round 3 (87): RB Damien Harris, Alabama
Round 3 (101): OT Yodny Cajuste, West Virginia
Round 4 (118): G Hjalte Forholdt, Arkansas
Round 4 (133): QB Jarrett Stidham, Auburn
Round 5 (159): DL Byron Cowart, Maryland
Round 5 (163): P Jake Bailey, Stanford
Round 7 (252): CB Ken Webster, Ole Miss

Draft Grade: A-

Analysis: There were better receivers on the board when they picked him, but it’s easy to see why the Patriots were keen on a receiver of Harry’s size and flexibility who can play both outside and in the slot. Williams is a long press corner who Bill Belichick should have no problem refining into a starter and getting a pass rusher as productive as Winovich in round three may prove the steal of the draft. Cajuste and Forholdt were also excellent value picks and Stidham gives them plenty of upside to work with as a possible Tom Brady replacement. The selection of Harris, a running back who didn’t catch passes, was an eyebrow-raiser but given New England’s track record at that position, it will probably work out.

New Orleans Saints

Round 2 (48): C Erik McCoy, Texas A&M
Round 4 (105): S Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Florida
Round 6 (177): S Saquan Hampton, Rutgers
Round 7 (231): TE Alize Mack, Notre Dame
Round 7 (244): LB Kaden Elliss, Idaho

Draft Grade: C

Analysis: With limited capital after trading away their first-rounder last year in the Marcus Davenport deal, the Saints still managed to find value. They traded up for McCoy, a well-rounded interior lineman who can play guard and center, and ended an unexpected fall for Gardner-Johnson, who brings versatility and playmaking-ability to their secondary.

New York Giants

Round 1 (6): QB Daniel Jones, Duke
Round 1 (17): DL Dexter Lawrence, Clemson
Round 1 (30): CB DeAndre Baker, Georgia
Round 3 (95): DE Oshane Ximines, Old Dominion
Round 4 (108): CB Julian Love, Notre Dame
Round 5 (143): LB Ryan Connelly, Wisconsin
Round 5 (171): WR Darius Slayton, Auburn
Round 6 (180): CB Corey Ballentine, Washburn
Round 7 (232): OT George Asafo-Adeji, Kentucky
Round 7 (245): DL Christopher Slayton, Syracuse

Draft Grade: D

Analysis: The Giants have been rightly criticized for a spectacular reach in selecting Jones in the top 10. Lawrence should be a long-term starter up front but starts his career viewed as an underwhelming return from the Odell Beckham Jr. trade. Moving back into the first round for Baker was a strange move and it is day-three pick Love who may in fact be their best selection.

New York Jets

Round 1 (3): DL Quinnen Williams, Alabama
Round 3 (68): DE Jachai Polite, Florida
Round 3 (92): OT Chuma Edoga, USC
Round 4 (121): TE Trevon Wesco, West Virginia
Round 5 (157): LB Blake Cashman, Minnesota
Round 6 (196): CB Blessuan Austin, Rutgers

Draft Grade: A

Analysis: Everything fell brilliantly for the Jets. They scooped up arguably the best player in the draft in Williams and will have a steal in Polite if he shakes off a poor pre-draft process and becomes the dominant edge rusher he was in college. Edoga was another good value pick for the Jets, who also added a swiss-army knife in Wesco and a linebacker in Cashman who brings athleticism and collegiate production.

Oakland Raiders

Round 1 (4): DE Clelin Ferrell, Clemson
Round 1 (24): RB Josh Jacobs, Alabama
Round 1 (27): S Johnathan Abram, Mississippi State
Round 2 (40): CB Trayvon Mullen, Clemson
Round 4 (106): DE Maxx Crosby, Eastern Michigan
Round 4 (129): CB Isaiah Johnson, Houston
Round 4 (137): TE Foster Moreau, LSU
Round 5 (149): WR Hunter Renfrow, Clemson
Round 7 (230): DE Quinton Bell, Prairie View A&M

Draft Grade: B

Analysis: There is a strong argument that all three of the Raiders’ first-round picks were reaches, yet Ferrell was one of the more polished all-round defenders in the class and Abram can be an immediate tone-setter on defense. Taking Jacobs that high was the real issue. Oakland did great work on days two and three, though, adding high-upside players Mullen, Crosbay and Johnson. Moreau and Renfrow each have what it takes to earn early snaps and become reliable underneath weapons for Derek Carr.

Philadelphia Eagles

Round 1 (22): OT Andre Dillard, Washington State
Round 2 (53): RB Miles Sanders, Penn State
Round 2 (57): WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Stanford
Round 4 (138): DE Shareef Miller, Penn State
Round 5 (167): QB Clayton Thorson, Northwestern

Draft Grade: B

Analysis: Dillard has quickly been labeled the heir apparent to Jason Peters and is worthy of that title having been one of the best pass protectors in college football. The Eagles will hope Sanders can help finally provide consistency in the backfield and Arcega-Whiteside, a jump-ball artist with deceptive speed and agility should become a favorite of Carson Wentz.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Round 1 (10): LB Devin Bush, Michigan
Round 2 (66): WR Diontae Johnson, Toledo
Round 3 (83): CB Justin Layne, Michigan State
Round 4 (122): RB Benny Snell, Kentucky
Round 5 (141): TE Zach Gentry, Michigan
Round 6 (175): Edge Sutton Smith, Northern Illinois
Round 6 (192): DL Isaiah Buggs, Alabama
Round 6 (192): LB Ulysees Gilbert, Akron
Round 7 (219): OT Derwin Gray, Maryland

Draft Grade: B

Analysis: The Steelers had to trade up for Bush but there is no doubt he is a prototypical modern-day linebacker and should finally replace Ryan Shazier. Johnson will be partially asked to fill the Antonio Brown void and has the route-running chops to excel early. A former receiver, Layne is raw but brings excellent ball skills and tackling. Snell and Buggs offer great day-three value.

San Francisco 49ers

Round 1 (2): DE Nick Bosa, Ohio State
Round 2 (36): WR Deebo Samuel, South Carolina
Round 3 (67): WR Jalen Hurd, Baylor
Round 4 (110): P Mitch Wishnowsky, Utah
Round 5 (148): LB Dre Greenlaw, Arkansas
Round 6 (176): TE Kaden Smith, Stanford
Round 6 (183): OT Justin Skule, Vanderbilt
Round 6 (198): CB Tim Harris, Virginia

Draft Grade: B

Analysis: Bosa was a no-brainer for the Niners, the primary beneficiaries of the Cardinals taking Murray. Samuel is an excellent fit for Kyle Shanahan’s offense while Hurd brings positional versatility few offensive prospects in this class can match. The selection of a punter in the fourth round raised eyebrows, but Smith could prove a nice complement to George Kittle and Harris has the size and speed to fit the Niners’ Cover 3 defense.

Seattle Seahawks

Round 1 (29): DE LJ Collier, TCU
Round 2 (47): S Marquise Blair, Utah
Round 2 (64): WR DK Metcalf, Ole Miss
Round 3 (88): LB Cody Barton, Utah
Round 4 (120): WR Gary Jennings, West Virginia
Round 4 (124): G Phil Haynes, Wake Forest
Round 4 (132): CB Ugo Amadi, Oregon
Round 5 (142): LB Ben Burr-Kirven, Washington
Round 6 (204): RB Travis Homer, Miami
Round 6 (209): DL Demarcus Christmas, Florida State
Round 7 (236): WR John Ursua, Hawaii

Draft Grade: B-

Analysis: The Seahawks are worthy of great praise for how they maneuvered down the board to acquire capital having initially started with only five picks. Collier was an underwhelming selection, but Metcalf and Jennings are perfect fits for an offense led by one of the league’s best deep ball throwers in Russell Wilson. A lot of their defensive picks will need time to develop, though Christmas was a steal in the sixth, but this is a coaching staff that excels at developing talent.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Round 1 (5): LB Devin White, LSU
Round 2 (39): CB Sean Bunting, Central Michigan
Round 3 (94): CB Jamel Dean, Auburn
Round 3 (99): S Mike Edwards, Kentucky
Round 4 (107): DE Anthony Nelson, Iowa
Round 5 (145): K Matt Gay, Utah
Round 6 (208): WR Scott Miller, Bowling Green
Round 7 (215): DL Terry Beckner Jr., Missouri

Draft Grade: B

Analysis: White was long expected to be the Bucs’ pick but there is a question over whether Devin Bush was the better prospect. Length at corner was obviously a focus with the selections of Bunting and Dean. Nelson was by far their best pick of day three, getting him at the very reasonable price of a fourth-rounder.

Tennessee Titans

Round 1 (19): DL Jeffery Simmons, Mississippi State
Round 2 (51): WR AJ Brown, Ole Miss
Round 3 (82): G Nate Davis, Charlotte
Round 4 (116): S Amani Hooker, Iowa
Round 5 (168): LB D’Andre Walker, Georgia
Round 6 (188): LB David Long Jr., West Virginia

Draft Grade: A

Analysis: There’s still hope Simmons can play in 2019 despite his torn ACL, and he has the talent to be an immediate dominant force on the defensive interior. Brown, arguably the best receiver in the draft, was a bargain, and the same can be said of versatile safety Hooker and pass rusher Walker. The Titans did an excellent job of finding value.

Washington Redskins

Round 1 (15): QB Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State
Round 1 (26): DE Montez Sweat, Mississippi State
Round 3 (76): WR Terry McLaurin, Ohio State
Round 4 (112): RB Bryce Love, Stanford
Round 4 (131): G Wes Martin, Indiana
Round 5 (153): C Ross Pierschbacher, Alabama
Round 5 (173): LB Cole Holcomb, UNC
Round 6 (206): WR Kelvin Harmon, NC State
Round 7 (227): CB Jimmy Moreland, James Madison
Round 7 (253): DE Jordan Brailford, Oklahoma State

Draft Grade: A

Analysis: The slides of Haskins and Sweat gifted the Redskins two of the best players in the draft and they followed those selections up by taking an underrated receiver in McLaurin. Love could be a steal if he stays healthy while getting Harmon in the sixth round was daylight robbery. A great draft for Washington.
