NFL Draft Diamonds is grading the 2016 NFL Draft. We are going to give our explanations below the draft class. Let’s see how the teams did below…
» Round 1: (No. 21 overall) Will Fuller, WR.
» Round 2: (50) Nick Martin, OG.
» Round 3: (85) Braxton Miller, WR.
» Round 4: (119) Tyler Ervin, RB.
» Round 5: (159) K.J. Dillon, S; (166) D.J. Reader, NT.
- I am not a fan of the Texans draft, but I know the team needed some wide outs. The Texans added two of the best wide outs in the draft to go along with DeAndre Hopkins and they landed the best center in the draft in Nick Martin. I think the Texans did well and for that I gave them a B+ for their 2016 NFL Draft.
» Round 1: (No. 5 overall) Jalen Ramsey, DB.
» Round 2: (36) Myles Jack, OLB.
» Round 3: (69) Yannick Ngakoue, DE.
» Round 4: (103) Sheldon Day, DT.
» Round 6: (181) Tyrone Holmes, OLB; (201) Brandon Allen, QB.
» Round 7: (226) Jonathan Woodard, DE.
- Jacksonville Jaguars murdered their draft. They were focused on one thing and they accomplished it. Build a defense and get the best player available when they draft. The team drafted one offensive player and he could be a very solid back-up. The Jaguars drafted tons of pass rushers and I love it. I am giving the Jaguars an A++. They hit the ball out of the park in the 2016 NFL Draft. It will not be long folks, the Jaguars will be contenders soon.
» Round 1: (No. 8 overall) Jack Conklin, OT.
» Round 2: (33) Kevin Dodd, DE; (43) Austin Johnson, NT; (45) Derrick Henry, RB.
» Round 3: (64) Kevin Byard, S.
» Round 5: (140) Tajae Sharpe, WR; (157) LeShaun Sims, CB.
» Round 6: (193) Sebastian Tretola, OG.
» Round 7: (222) Aaron Wallace, OLB; (253) Kalan Reed, CB.
- Last year the Titans killed the NFL draft and this year they did well again. The Titans drafted Jack Conklin to solidify their line, then picked up Kevin Dodd in round 2. Dodd should have been a first rounder. They landed Derrick Henry along with some talented defensive backs in Kevin Byard, LeShaun Sims and Kalan Reed. I like this drat and give it an A-. The Titans did a great job in the 2016 NFL Draft.
» Round 1: (No. 18 overall) Ryan Kelly, C.
» Round 2: (57) T.J. Green, DB.
» Round 3: (82) Le’Raven Clark, OT.
» Round 4: (116) Hassan Ridgeway, DT; (125) Antonio Morrison, ILB.
» Round 5: (155) Joe Haeg, OT.
» Round 7: (239) Trevor Bates, LB; (248) Austin Blythe, C.
- The Colts draft was not sexy but it works. They landed three animals on their offensive line in Joe Haeg, Le’Raven Clark and Ryan Kelly. Protecting Andrew Luck is a number one need and they did that. They were able to land the best linebacker in this entire draft in the fourth round. Antonio Morrison will be a Pro Bowler, and will fill in for Jerrell Freeman. Remember the name he is my Defensive Rookie of the Year out of the 2016 NFL Draft. Colts land an A for this draft class.
