PickGradeTeamAnalysis
1B+Browns select: Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M

It was the right pick to take Garrett, but there are concerns. They better hope he's not Courtney Brown 2.0.

2DBears select: Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina

Why give up so much to get this guy? It makes no sense. Is he Tom Brady all of the sudden? Bad move.

3A+49ers select: Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford

John Lynch is off to a great start in his first draft. Fleeced the Bears and got his guy. Love this move.

4DJaguars select: Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU

Why? I like the player, hate the position. You don't take running backs this high.

5B+Titans select: Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan

He's the best receiver in this draft. I like this pick. Solid. But what about defensive backs?

6BJets select: Jamal Adams, SS, LSU

They had to be thrilled this kid fell to them. Great kid at a need spot.

7C-Chargers select: Mike Williams, WR, Clemson

I know they need receivers, but I don't think this kid separates well enough.

8DPanthers select: Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford

I like his skill set with the way the game is played, but again, it's a back in the top 10. Hate that.

9BBengals select: John Ross, WR, Washington

I like this pick more than Williams. Why? He can fly. They need help for A.J. Green.

10B+Chiefs select: Patrick Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech

I like the player, who I think is the best QB in this draft, but they gave up a bunch. He better be.

11ASaints select: Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State

They stood pat and ended up with the best corner in the draft, who goes to a team that needs one in the worst way.

12C-Texans select: Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson

That's a lot to give up to go get him, but they had to do something.

13ACardinals select: Haason Reddick, OLB, Temple

I love this kid. He can play inside, outside, blitz and he's a tough kid. Love this pick.

14AEagles select: Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee

Love this pick. They might be getting the best pass rusher in this draft.

15AColts select: Malik Hooker, FS, Ohio State

Chuck Pagano just might have gotten his next Ed Reed. The kid has great range in the middle of the field.

16BRavens select: Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama

They need a corner, so I get it. The Alabama connection with Ozzie Newsome helps this pick.

17ARedskins select: Jonathan Allen, DT, Alabama

He's a top-five talent who fell. This is a heck of a pick.

18B+Titans select: Adoree' Jackson, CB, Southern California

They needed a corner, and this is a game-changing player at the position. I also like this kid's ability as a return man.

19B+Buccaneers select: O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama

They could have used defensive help, but they took a player who might be the cleanest in this draft.

20BBroncos select: Garett Bolles, OT, Utah

He's an older player at 25, but he's a Day 1 starter for them at left tackle -- filling a major need.

21B-Lions select: Jarrad Davis, ILB, Florida

This fills a need, and he will add speed to a unit that needs it.

22B+Dolphins select: Charles Harris, DE, Missouri

This is another pass rusher the scouts liked more than the draftniks. They had to get pass-rush help.

23BGiants select: Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss

They need a tight end, but I would have gone for an offensive lineman here. He is a good pass catcher.

24B-Raiders select: Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State

There is risk, but it could pay off in a big way. He is a nice cover player, which is what they need.

25FBrowns select: Jabrill Peppers, SS, Michigan

I don't like this pick at all. Where does he play?

26AFalcons select: Takkarist McKinley, OLB, UCLA

Love this pick. This kid has big-time edge-rush ability. He does have medical issues, but should be OK.

27B+Bills select: Tre'Davious White, CB, LSU

They had to get a corner and they got one of the best ones in the draft. I like getting him after the trade down.

28B-Cowboys select: Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan

They need help up front, but this kid flashed at times and did little else.

29B-Browns select: David Njoku, TE, Miami (Fla.)

He has pass-catching ability, but he's raw. Who gets him the ball?

30B+Steelers select: T.J. Watt, OLB, Wisconsin

I like the pick. He fills a pass-rush need and he is a rising player. Still learning to play the game.

31A49ers select: Reuben Foster, ILB, Alabama

He has a Ray Lewis-type of game. Love this pick. Top-10 talent.

32C+Saints select: Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin

I don't get this pick. Where does he play? Is this the end for Zach Strief?
