2023 NFL Draft Grades: Ranking all 32 teams

By Harry Bazley

USATSI 20552518

The 2023 NFL Draft is officially over after bringing the top 259 collegiate prospects to teams across the league. There were shock trades, surprising picks, some of the best (and worst) draft performances we've seen in years. Some teams climbed the rankings despite not having a first round pick, while others seemed to waste their chance at getting the talent that their rosters desperately needed.

Today, we're going to look at how each team did in the draft, as we grade and rank their performances from best to worst.

32. Miami Dolphins: Grade (D-)

After being stripped of their 2023 first round pick following inappropriate contact with Tom Brady, Miami might as well have skipped the draft entirely.

Their D- grade isn't much of a surprise considering their diluted draft picks, especially after trading away most of their leverage for Tyreek Hill and Jalen Ramsey... Both of which are valuable assets, but for a team that's built around the risk that is Tua Tagovailoa they'll have to hope he stays healthy in the upcoming season, or else playoff hopes are out the window.

Smith could be the only pick that will see the turf anytime soon, but let's be honest - Miami were grasping at straws this year. Achane is an incredible talent but with Jalen Ramsey and Xavien Howard making the case for the top cornerback duo in the league, it'd be a shock to see him play.

All Picks

  • R2 (51): Cam Smith, CB South Carolina

  • R3 (84): Devon Achane, RB Texas A&M

  • R6 (197): Elijah Higgins, TE Stanford

  • R7 (238): Ryan Hayes, OT Michigan

31. San Francisco 49ers: Grade (D+)

Barring their quarterback situation, the 49ers have a star-studded championship roster, so it's understandably tough to make an impact with your first pick coming in at 87th overall. But, here's an idea - if you are going to take a swing at it, maybe don't draft a kicker in the third round...

Sure, kickers are some of the most underrated players in football, but making Jake Moody a top 100 pick with cornerback and offensive line talent still flooding the board, was a shock to say the least.

All Picks

  • R3 (87): Ji’Ayir Brown, S Penn State

  • R3 (99): Jake Moody, K Michigan

  • R3 (101): Cameron Latu, TE Alabama

  • R5 (155): Darrell Luter Jr., CB South Alabama

  • R5 (173): Robert Beal Jr., EDGE Georgia

  • R6 (216): Dee Winters, LB TCU

  • R7 (247): Brayden Willis, TE Oklahoma

  • R7 (253): Ronnie Bell, WR Michigan

  • R7 (255): Jalen Graham, LB Purdue

30. Jacksonville Jaguars: Grade (C-)

If Jacksonville weren't blessed with a total of 13 picks, they could easily have made it to the bottom of the list.

The Jags had the 5th worst passing defense last year, which played a huge part in holding them back from a deep playoff run. And guess what? Doug Pederson added exactly ZERO difference-makers to their pass-coverage. Despite having 6 selections in the top 150, Jacksonville waited until pick 160 before taking a DB...

All Picks

  • R1 (27): Anton Harrison, OT Oklahoma

  • R2 (61): Brenton Strange, TE Penn State

  • R3 (88): Tank Bigsby, RB Auburn

  • R4 (121): Ventrell Miller, LB Florida

  • R4 (130): Tyler Lacy, EDGE Oklahoma State

  • R5 (136): Yasir Abdullah, EDGE Louisville

  • R5 (160): Antonio Johnson, S Texas A&M

  • R6 (185): Parker Washington, WR Penn State

  • R6 (202): Christian Braswell, S Rutgers

  • R6 (208): Erick Hallett II, S Pittsburgh

  • R7 (226): Cooper Hodges, OT Appalachian State

  • R7 (227): Raymond Vohasek, DL North Carolina

  • R7 (240): Derek Parish, FB Houston

29. Los Angeles Rams: Grade (C-)

With zero first round draft picks and a rough off-season - where he lost Jalen Ramsey, Bobby Wagner, Greg Gains and more - Les Snead may be regretting the monster trades that sacrificed his draft leverage right about now. They may have put a ring on his finger, but the Rams are in a hole they won't climb their way out of for a long time to come.

All Picks

  • R2 (36): Steve Avila, G TCU

  • R3 (77): Byron Young, EDGE Tennessee

  • R3 (89): Kobie Turner, DL Wake Forest

  • R4 (128): Stetson Bennett, QB Georgia

  • R5 (174): Warren McClendon, OT Georgia

  • R5 (175): Davis Allen, TE Clemson

  • R5 (177): Puka Nacua, WR BYU

  • R5 (161): Nick Hampton, EDGE App State

  • R6 (182): Tre'Vius Hodges-Tomlinson, CB TCU

  • R6 (189): Ochaun Mathis, EDGE Nebraska

  • R6 (215): Zach Evans, RB Ole Miss

  • R7 (223): Ethan Evans, P Wingate

  • R7 (234): Jason Taylor II, S Oklahoma

  • 7 (259): Desjuan Johnson, DT Toledo

28. Detroit Lions: Grade (C)

Now, this one might come as a shock, but hear me out...

An RB selection at 12th overall was a surprise for everyone (even after they sent Swift to Philly) and Jack Campbell could really go either way. But the way I see it, Brad Holmes took two 2nd-rounders in the top 20.

There's no arguing that Gibbs, Campbell and LaPorta aren't good or even great players, but the Lions are in desperate need of an elite cornerback and a standout wide receiver... and they got neither.

Sure, my money's still on Detroit taking the North, but they have Divisional Round choke written all over them.

All Picks

  • R1 (12): Jahmyr Gibbs, RB Alabama

  • R1 (18): Jack Campbell, LB Iowa

  • R2 (34): Sam LaPorta, TE Iowa

  • R2 (45): Brian Branch, S Alabama

  • R3 (68): Hendon Hooker, QB Tennessee

  • R3 (96): Brodric Martin, DI Western Kentucky

  • R5 (152): Colby Sorsdal, OT William & Mary

  • R6 (219): Antoine Green, WR North Carolina

27. Atlanta Falcons: Grade (C)

There's no denying that Bijan Robinson is a great fit in a run-focused defense, but... so was Tyler Allgeier. The young rookie logged a 1000-yard season and proved himself as a worthy starter in Atlanta, but I guess Terry Fontenot or Arthur Smith didn't get the memo. This was a shocker to say the least.

Meanwhile, Bergeron is a O-lineman that will help the ground game and Harrison is a solid edge rusher who should help a patchy Falcons run-defense.

All Picks

  • R1 (8): Bijan Robinson, RB Texas

  • R2 (38): Matthew Bergeron, T Syracuse

  • R3 (75): Zach Harrison, EDGE Ohio State

  • R4 (113): Clark Phillips III, CB Utah

  • R7 (224): DeMarcco Hellams, S Alabama

  • R7 (225): Jovaughn Gwyn, OG South Carolina

26. Minnesota Vikings: Grade (C)

Minnesota had just two picks in the top 130 - a first and a third-rounder. It's tough to call this a bad draft, but it was nothing special. Jordan Addison will be a game-1 starter to take some coverage away from Justin Jefferson and Blackmon should serve as a versatile back-up for the secondary.

What brings this draft down is the trade up to get Blackmon while talented corners were still on the board. A C grade is more than fair.

All Picks

  • R1 (23): Jordan Addison, WR USC

  • R3 (102): Mekhi Blackmon, CB USC

  • R4 (134): Jay Ward, CB LSU

  • R5 (141): Jaquelin Roy, DT LSU

  • R5 (164): Jaren Hall, QB BYU

  • R7 (222): DeWayne McBride, RB UAB

25. Cleveland Browns: Grade (B-)

Another average draft for another average team.

The Browns picks weren't necessarily bad, but with their first selection at 74th overall they weren't given much to work with. Tillman is a good possession receiver, Ika is a solid interior run-stopper and Jones is a big tackle who should help protect Desean Watson. Not the worst draft in the world, but don't expect anything special from Cleveland this year.

All Picks

  • R3 (74): Cedric Tillman, WR Tennessee

  • R3 (98): Siaki Ika, DL Baylor

  • R4 (111): Dawand Jones, T Ohio State

  • R4 (126): Isaiah McGuire, EDGE Missouri

  • R5 (140): Dorian Thompson-Robinson, QB UCLA

  • R5 (142): Cameron Mitchell, CB Northwestern

  • R6 (190): Luke Wypler, C Ohio State

24. Dallas Cowboys: Grade (B-)

No risks taken by Jerry Jones here.

The Cowboys have some solid players and solid positions, making this a very safe draft for some potential future talent. The only notable selection is Smith who will slot right in as a starting nose tackle. Otherwise Dallas didn't do anything to bolster their squad for next season.

All Picks

  • R1 (26): Mazi Smith, DL Michigan

  • R2 (58): Luke Schoonmaker, TE Michigan

  • R3 (90): DeMarvion Overshown, EDGE Texas

  • R4 (129): Viliami Fehoko, EDGE San Jose State

  • R5 (169): Asim Richards, OT North Carolina

  • R6 (178): Eric Scott Jr., CB Southern Mississippi

  • R6 (212): Deuce Vaughn, RB Kansas State

  • R7 (244): Jalen Brooks, WR South Carolina

23. Kansas City Chiefs: Grade (B-)

With 7 picks all falling at the end of each round, KC had a tough task on its hands and GM Brett Veach decided to play it safe. It may not have been the most interesting draft for Chiefs fans, but these picks should prove fairly reliable for future production. Although, I suspect that Veach may look back and regret not taking some risks.

All Picks

  • R1 (31): Felix Anudike-Uzomah, EDGE Kansas State

  • R2 (55): Rashee Rice, WR SMU

  • R3 (92): Wanya Morris, T Oklahoma

  • R4 (119): Chamarri Conner, S Virginia Tech

  • R5 (166): BJ Thompson, EDGE Stephen F. Austin

  • R6 (194): Keondre Coburn, DL Texas

  • R7 (250): Nic Jones, CB Ball State

22. Buffalo Bills: Grade (B)

Many of you will disagree with this one, but the Bills Kincaid pick just doesn't sit right with me. Sure, he'll be a solid addition to the passing game, but I would much rather have seen another wideout to help Allen while giving Dawson Knox more of the ball. It's clear that Buffalo is desperate for its own Travis Kelce, but I can't see that sort of production from Kincaid...

Other than that, Torrence is a great grab at 59 and Williams fills a needed slot since the loss of Tremaine Edmunds. Shame their first pick tanked their grade.

All Picks

  • R1 (25): Dalton Kincaid, TE Utah

  • R2 (59): O’Cyrus Torrence, G Florida

  • R3 (91): Dorian Williams, LB Tulane

  • R5 (150): Justin Shorter, WR Florida

  • R7 (230): Nick Broeker, OG Ole Miss

  • R7 (252): Alex Austin, CB Oregon State

21. Denver Broncos: Grade (B+)

If it wasn't for other teams making some seriously poor calls, Denver would be at dead last as punishment for the Russel Wilson trade. Then again, it's purely because of the trade that they came into the draft with zero selections in the first two rounds and only five in total.

Having said that, Sean Payton somehow got 3 picks at very reasonable prices...

Trading up for Marvin Mims is a confusing move given their existing talent at receiver, but the deep-ball threat should give Denver some flexibility between him and Jerry Jeudy. Meanwhile, Sanders is a top-tier LB and Moss is one of the smartest DBs in the class.

All Picks

  • R2 (63): Marvin Mims, WR Oklahoma

  • R3 (67): Drew Sanders, LB Arkansas

  • R3 (83): Riley Moss, CB Iowa

  • R6 (183): JL Skinner, S Boise State

  • R7 (257): Alex Forsyth, C Oregon

20. Carolina Panthers: Grade (B+)

I know what you're thinking... "They had the first overall pick, how could you say they had an average draft?" Well, sorry folks, you don't get any credit for taking the most accomplished quarterback in the class when you have every single option on the table.

Otherwise, Chandler Zavala is a fourth round pick who could start immediately, but opting for Jonathan Mingo over the likes of Jalin Hyatt or Marvin Mins in Round 2 was a surprising choice.

All Picks

  • R1 (1): Bryce Young, QB Alabama

  • R2 (39): Jonathan Mingo, WR Ole Miss

  • R3 (80): DJ Johnson, EDGE Oregon

  • R4 (114): Chandler Zavala, G NC State

  • R5 (145): Jammie Robinson, S Florida State

19. Arizona Cardinals: Grade (B+)

Not only did Arizona pick up some serious talent, they made some snappy trades to land even more leverage in the 2024 draft.

Sliding down from their 3rd overall pick - in exchange for a 2024 first round and third-rounder - would have been a great call if they hadn't settled for an offensive lineman. I only say this because O-line talent lasted well into the teens and the Cardinals could have picked up a game-changing edge rusher instead. I guess the priority is protecting Kyler Murray, but their line situation is embarrassing.

All Picks

  • R1 (6): Paris Johnson Jr., OT Ohio State

  • R2 (41): BJ Ojulari, EDGE LSU

  • R3 (72): Garrett Williams, CB Syracuse

  • R3 (94): Michael Wilson, WR Stanford

  • R4 (122): Jon Gaines II, OG UCLA

  • R5 (139): Clayton Tune, QB Houston

  • R5 (168): Owen Pappoe, LB Auburn

  • R6 (180): Kei’Trel Clark, CB Louisville

  • R6 (213): Dante Stills, DL West Virginia

18. Green Bay Packers: Grade (A-)

The good news is Green Bay are fully aware of their new situation without Aaron Rodgers. Besides bolstering their defense with picks like Lukas Van Ness and Colby Wooden, Packers GM Brian Gutekunst did the right thing for young QB Jordan Love by picking up as many potential weapons as he could.

Luke Musgrave and Tucker Kraft are athletic blocking tight ends who should improve the run game, while Reed, Wicks and DuBose will stretch the defense (in a few years time).

All Picks

  • R1 (13): Lukas Van Ness, EDGE Iowa

  • R2 (42): Luke Musgrave, TE Oregon State

  • R2 (50): Jayden Reed, WR Michigan State

  • R3 (78): Tucker Kraft, TE South Dakota State

  • R4 (116): Colby Wooden, EDGE Auburn

  • R5 (149): Sean Clifford, QB Penn State

  • R5 (159): Dontayvion Wicks, WR Virginia Tech

  • R6 (179): Karl Brooks, DL Bowling Green

  • R6 (207): Anders Carlson, K Auburn

  • R7 (232): Carrington Valentine, CB Kentucky

  • R7 (235): Lew Nichols III, RB Central Michigan

  • R7 (242): Anthony Johnson, S Iowa State

  • R7 (256): Grant DuBose, WR Charlotte

17. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Grade (A-)

Tampa desperately needed to fill gaps in both sides of the line at this year's draft.

Not only did they pick up an elite defensive tackle who will be a game one starter to pair with Vita Vea against the run - they also nabbed Mauch: a bruising interior lineman who can work to the next level. The Bucs should dominate the ground game on both sides of the ball.

All Picks

  • R1 (19): Calijah Kancey, DL Pittsburgh

  • R2 (48): Cody Mauch, OG North Dakota State

  • R3 (82): YaYa Diaby, EDGE Louisville

  • R5 (153): SirVocea Dennis, LB Pittsburgh

  • R6 (181): Josh Hayes, CB Kansas State

  • R5 (171): Payne Durham, TE Purdue

  • R6 (191): Trey Palmer, WR Nebraska

  • R6 (196): Jose Ramirez, EDGE Eastern Michigan

  • R7 (232): Carrington Valentine, CB Kentucky

16. Las Vegas Raiders: Grade (A-)

Tyree Wilson could be a project, especially with legitimate medical concerns, but with Maxx Crosby and Chandler Jones holding strong, Wilson will be a great rotational player until he makes it as a starter.

Meanwhile, Michael Mayer at 35 is a steal. Kincaid was a clear favourite for receiving TEs, but Mayer was second on my board, so managing to snag him in the second round was a great deal.

All Picks

  • R1 (7): Tyree Wilson, EDGE Texas Tech

  • R2 (35): Michael Mayer, TE Notre Dame

  • R3 (70): Byron Young, DL Alabama

  • R3 (100): Tre Tucker, WR Cincinnati

  • R4 (104): Jakorian Bennett, CB Maryland

  • R4 (135): Aidan O’Connell, QB Purdue

  • R5 (170): Christopher Smith, S Georgia

  • R6 (203): Amari Burney, LB Florida

  • R7 (231): Nesta Jade Silvera, DL Arizona State

15. New York Jets: Grade (A-)

Bagging both an elite edge rusher and a middle-of-the-line anchor in the top 50, is about as good as it gets. Aaron Rodgers will certainly appreciate the extra security in his first year as a Jet, while the patchy New York defense will certainly benefit from some added QB pressure.

You could argue that they may still struggle at tackle next season, but there's a reason the Jets are now top 10 favourites for the Super Bowl... Their roster is stacked. I'm expecting big things for the Big Apple.

All Picks

  • R1 (15): Will McDonald IV, EDGE Iowa State

  • R2 (43): Joe Tippmann, C Wisconsin

  • R4 (120): Carter Warren, OT Pittsburgh

  • R5 (143): Israel Abanikanda, RB Pittsburgh

  • R6 (184): Zaire Barnes, LB Western Michigan

  • R6 (204): Jarrick Bernard-Converse, CB LSU

  • R6 (220): Zack Kuntz, TE Old Dominion

14. New Orleans Saints: Grade (A-)

New Orleans did everything they could to avoid project players in this draft class. The addition of Derrick Carr in free agency delivers an opportunity to take the title in a messy NFC South and Mickey Loomis is looking to secure a lead in the race this fall.

Bresee possesses the talent to be a day 1 starter in New Orleans, while Foskey possesses the size and sack record (20.5 in the last 2 seasons) to make an impact as a rotational lineman. Meanwhile they picked up a prospect QB in Haener and a safe WR3 in AT Perry. Overall, pretty good.

All Picks

  • R1 (29): Bryan Bresee, DL Clemson

  • R2 (40): Isaiah Foskey, EDGE Notre Dame

  • R3 (71): Kendre Miller, RB TCU

  • R4 (103): Nick Saldiveri, OT Old Dominion

  • R4 (127): Jake Haener, QB Fresno State

  • R5 (146): Jordan Howden, S Minnesota

  • R6 (195): A.T. Perry, WR Wake Forest

13. Baltimore Ravens: Grade (A)

Well, Lamar Jackson just got a huge payday and a top-tier wide receiver. Zay Flowers was arguably the most explosive wideout on the board, who should provide a real option in the struggling Ravens passing game. Meanwhile, Trenton Simpson fills a gap at MLB as Patrick Queen enters his contract year.

These two picks alone met Baltimore's needs, everything else is a bonus. A well deserved A grade.

All Picks

  • R1 (22): Zay Flowers, WR Boston College

  • R3 (86): Trenton Simpson, LB Clemson

  • R4 (124): Tavius Robinson, EDGE Ole Miss

  • R5 (157): Kyu Blu Kelly, CB Stanford

  • R6 (199): Sala Aumavae-Laulu, OG Oregon

  • R7 (229): Andrew Vorhees, OG USC

12. Tennessee Titans: Grade (A)

The 'Will Levis Slide' will be talked about for years to come. I didn't see a single mock draft without him going in the first round, and somehow Vrabel managed to pick him up at 33 overall. I don't expect Levis to jump ahead of Tannehill just yet, but give him a few years and he could have the football IQ to match his athleticism, and become a franchise QB.

Tennessee have a huge rebuild ahead of them and a key part of that is the offensive line... Picking up the most talented lineman in the class with Peter Skoronski was exactly what Vrabel needs to protect whichever QB he puts at the helm.

All Picks

  • R1 (11): Peter Skoronski, OT Northwestern

  • R2 (33): Will Levis, QB Kentucky

  • R3 (81): Tyjae Spears, RB Tulane

  • R5 (147): Josh Whyle, TE Cincinnati

  • R6 (186): Jaelyn Duncan, OT Maryland

  • R7 (228): Colton Dowell, WR Tennessee-Martin

11. New England Patriots: Grade (A)

The Patriots desperately needed a star cornerback heading into last week and somehow managed to pick up the best DB in the draft (and a top 10 prospect on most boards) at 17... Talk about a steal.

Keion White was another highly touted prospect, but he slid into day 2 despite being invited to the green room in KC. He's set to make a big impact on Belichick's defensive rebuild.

All Picks

  • R1 (17): Christian Gonzalez, CB Oregon

  • R2 (46): Keion White, EDGE Georgia Tech

  • R3 (76): Marte Mapu, S Sacramento State

  • R4 (107): Jake Andrews, C Troy

  • R4 (112): Chad Ryland, K Maryland

  • R4 (117): Sidy Sow, OG Eastern Washington

  • R5 (144): Atonio Mafi, OG UCLA

  • R6 (187): Kayshon Boutte, WR LSU

  • R6 (192): Bryce Baringer, P Michigan State

  • R6 (210) Demario Douglas, WR Liberty

  • R6 (214): Ameer Speed, CB Michigan State

  • R7 (245): Isaiah Bolden, CB Jacksonville State

10. Houston Texans: Grade (A)

Say what you will about the price they paid in the move up for Anderson, Houston landed potentially the two top prospects on the board. If Stroud and Anderson perform as expected, the Houston rebuild may be much shorter than we were all predicting.

All Picks

  • R1 (2): C.J. Stroud, QB Ohio State

  • R1 (3): Will Anderson Jr., EDGE Alabama

  • R2 (62): Juice Scruggs, C Penn State

  • R3 (69): Nathaniel Dell, WR Houston

  • R4 (109): Dylan Horton, EDGE TCU

  • R5 (167): Henry To’oTo’o, LB Alabama

  • R6 (201): Jarrett Patterson, C Notre Dame

  • R6 (205): Xavier Hutchinson, WR Iowa State

  • R7 (248): Brandon Hill, S Pittsburgh

9. Los Angeles Chargers: Grade (A)

Despite the lack of huge names, I think the Chargers couldn't have done much better for their already stacked roster.

Johnston possesses all the skills to form a solid partnership with Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, and should take over whichever spot frees up as the WR1 or 2 in the coming years. Meanwhile, Tuipulotu, who recorded 13.5 sacks and 22 tackles for loss last year, is a dominant force on the line, capable of disrupting pockets and breaking down the run.

Henley, Davis and Matlock all serve as good rotational players that could progress to the starting roster.

All Picks

  • R1 (21): Quentin Johnston, WR TCU

  • R2 (54): Tuli Tuipulotu, EDGE USC

  • R3 (85): Daiyan Henley, LB Washington State

  • R4 (125): Derius Davis, WR TCU

  • R5 (156): Jordan McFadden, T Clemson

  • R6 (200): Scott Matlock, DL Boise State

  • R7 (239): Max Duggan, QBTCU

8. Washington Commanders: Grade (A)

Washington may have passed up on the likes of Will Levis and Hendon Hooker, but I doubt they'll be regretting it...

Their strategy of picking up high-level defensive backs early in the draft should fill the gaps in their 13th ranked pass defense. While the addition of Stromberg and Daniels is set to reinforce their run game and protect Brissett in the pocket.

All Picks

  • R1 (16): Emmanuel Forbes, CB Mississippi State

  • R2 (47): Jartavius Martin, CB Illinois

  • R3 (97): Ricky Stromberg, C Arkansas

  • R4 (118): Braeden Daniels, G Utah

  • R5 (137): K.J. Henry, EDGE Clemson

  • R6 (193): Chris Rodriguez Jr., RB Kentucky

  • R7 (233): Andre Jones, LB Louisiana

7. Chicago Bears: Grade (A)

Justin Fields might get the opportunity to actually show off his arm talent this season, as Ryan Poles wasted no time in filling the biggest hole on their offensive line at right tackle. Darnell Wright is arguably the best natural tackle in the class and should save Fields from scrambling every other play (as entertaining as that is).

Future starters - Dexter, Stevenson, Pickens and Scott - should help take the Bears to genuine NFC contenders in a few years. Nicely done.

All Picks

  • R1 (10): Darnell Wright, OT Tennessee

  • R2 (53): Gervon Dexter Sr., DL Florida

  • R2 (56): Tyrique Stevenson, CB Miami (FL)

  • R3 (64): Zacch Pickens, DL South Carolina

  • R4 (115): Roschon Johnson, RB Texas

  • R4 (133): Tyler Scott, WR Cincinnati

  • R5 (148): Noah Sewell, LB Oregon

  • R5 (165): Terell Smith, CB Minnesota

  • R7 (218): Travis Bell, DL Kennesaw State

  • R7 (258): Kendall Williamson, S Stanford

6. Cincinnati Bengals: Grade (A)

The Bengals picks proved that they're fully aware of their weakness - the defense.

Mike Brown used all three of his top 100 selections to bolster the D-line and the secondary. Miles Murphy can land double-digit sacks alongside Trey Hendrickson, while Turner and Battle have the skills to jump into starting spots right off the bat.

All Picks

  • R1 (28): Myles Murphy, EDGE Clemson

  • R2 (60): DJ Turner, CB Michigan

  • R3 (95): Jordan Battle, S Alabama

  • R4 (131): Charlie Jones, WR Purdue

  • R5 (163): Chase Brown, RB Illinois

  • R6 (206): Andrei Iosivas, WR Princeton

  • R6 (217): Brad Robbins, P Michigan

  • R7 (246): DJ Ivey, CB Miami (FL)

5. Seattle Seahawks: Grade (A+)

John Schneider breaks the A+ grade with what could be the Hawks best draft we've seen in years.

The Seattle GM just picked up a lock-down starting corner in Witherspoon, a potential ROTY contender in Smith-Njigba and an elite edge rusher in Derrick Hall. Not to mention Charbonnet joining an elite backfield with Kenneth Walker and Deejay Dallas.

Schneider hit this one out of the park.

All Picks

  • R1 (5): Devon Witherspoon, CB Illinois

  • R1 (20): Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR Ohio State

  • R2 (37): Derick Hall, EDGE Auburn

  • R2 (52): Zach Charbonnet, RB UCLA

  • R4 (108): Anthony Bradford, G LSU

  • R4 (123): Cameron Young, DL Mississippi State

  • R5 (151): Mike Morris, EDGE Michigan

  • R5 (154): Olusegun Oluwatimi, C Michigan

  • R6 (198): Jerrick Reed II, S New Mexico

  • R7 (237): Kenny McIntosh, RB Georgia

4. New York Giants: Grade (A+)

Although the Giants would have loved to pick up a top-tier receiver, the string of wide-outs that left the board just before their first pick left them with no choice but to go another direction. Daboll took the change in his stride and added a lock-down corner at pick 24 who could have gone in the top 15.

23 selections later he added potentially the top center in the class with Schmitz (which Saquon Barkley will be very happy about) followed by a dynamic deep-threat receiver in Jalin Hyatt, who will give Daniel Jones a chance to open up the playbook.

All Picks

  • R1 (24): Deonte Banks, CB Maryland

  • R2 (57): John Michael Schmitz, C Minnesota

  • R3 (73): Jalin Hyatt, WR Tennessee

  • R5 (172): Eric Gray, RB Oklahoma

  • R6 (209): Tre Hawkins III, CB Old Dominion

  • R7 (243): Jordan Riley, DT Oregon

  • R7 (254): Gervarrius Owens, S Houston

3. Indianapolis Colts: Grade (A+)

This grade all depends on how you rank Anthony Richardson. In my books, not having to trade up for him, makes the pick a bargain either way. But, as we all know, his production and experience isn't ideal if you're looking to start him anytime soon. Bottom line - Richardson has the potential to become a franchise QB and reach a level of play similar to and beyond Cam-Newton's prime.

What's more? Indy picked up Downs, Rush and Adebawore a whole round later than most pundits expected.

If any of these picks live up to their potential, we could see the Colts in the postseason much sooner than we thought.

All Picks

  • R1 (4): Anthony Richardson, QB Florida

  • R2 (44): Julius Brents, CB Kansas State

  • R3 (79): Josh Downs, WR North Carolina

  • R4 (106): Blake Freeland, T BYU

  • R4 (110): Adetomiwa Adebawore, EDGE Northwestern

  • R5 (138): Darius Rush, CB South Carolina

  • R5 (158): Daniel Scott, S Cal

  • R5 (162): Will Mallory, TE Miami (FL)

  • R5 (176): Evan Hull, RB Northwestern

  • R6 (211): Titus Leo, EDGE Wagner

  • R6 (221): Jaylon Jones, CB Texas A&M

  • R7 (236): Jake Witt, OT Northern Michigan

2. Pittsburgh Steelers: Grade (A+)

The move to trade up for Jones was certainly a surprise, but there's no doubt that picking up an elite tackle will put a smile on Kenny Pickett's face. But the real news is picking Joey Porter Jr so cheap. The physical cornerback is following the footsteps of his father who is a Steelers legend, and should replace Cam Sutton Game 1.

Washington has the potential to become a solid TE2 behind Freiermuth, while Herbig is a great rotational pick-up to bolster the Pittsburgh defense.

All Picks

  • R1 (14): Broderick Jones, OT Georgia

  • R2 (32): Joey Porter Jr., CB Penn State

  • R2 (49): Keeanu Benton, DL Wisconsin

  • R3 (93): Darnell Washington, TE Georgia

  • R4 (132): Nick Herbig, EDGE Wisconsin

  • R7 (241): Cory Trice Jr., CB Purdue

  • R7 (251): Spencer Anderson, OG Maryland

1. Philadelphia Eagles: Grade (A++)

If their sack-leading defense wasn't scary enough already, Philly picked up the highest-rated prospect in Jalen Carter, deciding to look past his off-field issues unlike the teams that let him slide to 9. Plus, Howie Roseman somehow got his hands on Carter's Bulldog teammate Nolan Smith, who incomprehensibly fell to 30th overall. Make all the jokes you want about the "Philly Bulldogs", but you wouldn't be laughing if you were lined up across from Carter, Smith and Graham.

Beyond that, Roseman picked up both Sydney Brown and Tyler Steen in Round 3, both of which could've gone early in 2.

There's no roster more scary than the Eagles right now.

All Picks

  • R1 (9): Jalen Carter, DL Georgia

  • R1 (30): Nolan Smith, EDGE Georgia

  • R3 (65): Tyler Steen, OT Alabama

  • R3 (66): Sydney Brown, S Illinois

  • R4 (105): Kelee Ringo, CB Georgia

  • R6 (188): Tanner McKee, QB Stanford

  • R7 (249): Moro Ojomo, DL Texas
