The Bills clearly decided to rebuild their defensive front 7. Like Shaq Lawson, Ragland was a first round talent and should start immediately. Adolphus Washington gives the Bill some depth along the defensive line, and a possible future hedge against Kyle Williams retirement/free agency. The Bills had one of the better second days of the draft.


On day 2 they added two nice pieces at positions of need in Kenyan Drake and Xavian Howard. Both should see a lot of playing times as rookies. The trade for Leonte Caroo was….strange. Caroo is a developmental player at a position that the Dolphins are already strong, and young, at. They also overpaid.

New England

The Patriots enjoy taking cornerbacks in the first two rounds, and like many of their other cornerback selections, Cyrus Jones is curious. His game tape is not very clean and his size is a concern. Thuney and Valentine are both good players and Brissett was a necessary addition given the Brady appeal being reinstated.

New York Jets

Hackenberg got the headlines, and it was a good pick for the Jets, but Jordan Jenkins was the more intriguing of the team’s two picks. Jenkins was also good value where he was chosen and combined with the team’s day 1 pick of Darron Lee gives the Jets new blood for their front 7


The Ravens spent Friday rebuilding their defensive front 7. Both Correra and Kafusi are good developmental prospects that can see action is certain packages as rookies.


Tyler Boyd was a great pick for the Bengals. I would expect him to start as a rookie. Nick Vigil gives them a physical 2 down linebacker, which I guess they thought they needed.


Shon Coleman should start immediately for the Browns at right tackle. Ogbah will also play early and Nassib should factor as a rookie too. Kessler is worth trying to develop. The team has stockpiled picks for the next 2 years, and the Browns have the first two picks of day 3.


Sean Davis was a very good pick and looks like a long term free safety for the Steelers. Javon Hargrave is a big bodied kid that was a curious choice. Not sure what they see in him from a scheme standpoint.


3 selections, 2 receivers and a center. Houston is really trying to set Brock Osweiller up for success.


La’Raven Clark will probably push to start at right tackle, which the team needed more than a center. TJ Green doesn’t escite me at all. But with three choices down the Colts have basically rebuilt their offensive line to protect Luck, which is really the only thing that matters for them.


The Myles Jack selection is enough to get Jacksonville an A grade for the entire draft if they don’t take another player at all. They found the perfect time to take a risk on a high reward player.


Dodd won’t start but should find a place in the rotation at defensive end, as Johnson should at defensive tackle. Henry may be groomed for the future behind Murray this year. Byrd is another developmental guy. I like what they did with their defensive line yesterday.


Gotsis and SImmons are both good fits for what they do defensively. Part of their second day was spent on Paxton Lynch though. This draft is a big question mark as none of the players are likely to contribute until 2017.

Kansas City

Jones and Russell, defensive depth. Typical Andy Reid unsexy draft.


The Raiders don’t ever change. Three rounds, three defensive players that no one else would have taken within 10 selections of Oakland’s selection. Not sure how the Raiders are better today.

San Diego

Henry was the best tight end in the draft, in a very weak year for tight ends in the draft. Still a good pick from the value/need perspective. Teurk seems too tall and skinny to play center, I almost wonder if he’s going to be moved to tackle.

Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys got the best player in the draft, in my opinion. Jaylon Smith will be a superstar if he ever recovers. Maliek Collins is even money for washing out of the league or being a Pro-Bowl player.

New York Giants

Sterling Shepard is a very good prospect. He’s may not be the best fit for the team, but we’ll see. Darrian Thompson is a great fit and can play slot cornerback for a year before taking over at free safety. Very similar game to Antrelle Rolle.

Philadelphia Eagles

After trading away most of their draft on Carson Wentz, which is a risk worth taking, the Eagles wasted a pick on a street free agent - or at best 7th round pick - to build a rapport with whoever runs the scout team at quarterback.

Washington Redskins

Su’A Cravens and Kendall Fuller were both top 45 players on my board so I obviously like what Scot McCloughan did here. Both Fuller and Cravens should come in and start as rookies.

Chicago Bears

The Bears have quietly had one of the best draft classes this year. Cody Whitehair and Jonathan Bullard were both top 40 selections on my board, both great fits for the Bears schemes, and both should start immediately along with Leonard Floyd.

Detroit Lions

A’Shawn Robinson might be remembered as the biggest steal of this draft. Or he might be remembered as the guy that never put forth the effort he needed to in order to be remotely successful. In the second round he was a steal. Graham Glasgow is a depth guy at this point.

Green Bay Packers

Jason Spriggs will get a year to add weight and strength before taking over as the team’s long term left tackle, presumably. Kyle Fackrell will play, mostly on special teams, and has the chance to develop into a solid role player/spot starter for the Packers.

Minnesota Vikings

Mackenzie Alexander was another first round talent picked up in the second round. The Vikings have made two choices and drafted two long term starters with Pro-bowl potential.

Atlanta Falcons

Deon Jones adds great speed to a defense that needs it. He went a little early but fits what Atlanta is looking for. Austin Hooper gives the Falcons a solid starter at tight end, and they need to give Ryan some more options.

Carolina Panthers

With Josh Norman leaving the Panthers took two cornerbacks to replace him. Both Bradberry and Worley have the potential to be future starters for the team. They still need an offensive lineman, or two, somewhere.

New Orleans Saints

The Saints had one of the best second days. Thomas could be their Marques Colston of the future and is a nice book end to Brandin Cooks. Vonn Bell is among the best coverage safeties in the draft. Both second day players were top 50 on my board and both could start as rookies.

Tampa Bay

Noah Spence could be a great player if he stays focused. He could also miss 2 of his first 3 years if he doesn’t lay off the drugs. He is a good fit for Tampa’s pass rush needs. Taking a kicker in the second round is proof that even NFL personnel can out think themselves.


Brandon Williams might work out. The Cardinals did have a need for depth in their defensive backfield, so I guess they have less of a need now.

Los Angeles

I heard Jeff Fisher broke 80 on the course Friday.

San Francisco

Trent Baalke just isn’t afraid of torn ACL injuries. For the 38th year in a row the 49ers take a talented prospect that might miss his first season. Redmond adds another talented youngster to the 49ers cornerback corps and if only 2 of them develop the team will have very good depth at the position.


Jarran Reed was great value. Proisse was...meh. Vannett could pay some dividends for the team as a second tight end. Odhiambo gives the Seahawks another offensive line project, which they needed at least two of.
