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. 22 overall) Josh Doctson, WR.
» Round 2: (53) Su’a Cravens, OLB/SS.
» Round 3: (84) Kendall Fuller, CB.
» Round 5: (152) Matthew Ioannidis, DT.
» Round 6: (187) Nate Sudfeld, QB.
» Round 7: (232) Steven Daniels, ILB; (242) Keith Marshall, RB.
- Redskins had a great draft. They landed three studs in the first three rounds. Doctson, Cravens and Fuller will all be starters down the road. I loved those picks, after that I do not know what happened to the Redskins. They kind of fell asleep in the draft room. I like Keith Marshall in the seventh round, but Sudfeld? For that I am giving the Redskins a B+ for their 2016 NFL Draft class.
» Round 1: (No. 4 overall) Ezekiel Elliott, RB.
» Round 2: (34) Jaylon Smith, OLB.
» Round 3: (67) Maliek Collins, DT.
» Round 4: (101) Charles Tapper, DE; (135) Dak Prescott, QB.
» Round 6: (189) Anthony Brown, CB; (212) Kavon Frazier, SS; (216) Darius Jackson, RB; (217) Rico Gathers, TE.
- The Dallas Cowboys had the best draft in the NFC East. Ezekiel Elliott will be a Pro Bowler behind the Cowboys offensive line. They were then able to land Jaylon Smith in round two who could end up being a free first round pick in 2017. I loved the Charles Tapper pick and Kavon Frazier pick. I give the Cowboys an A- for their 2016 NFL Draft Class.
New York Giants
» Round 1: (No. 10 overall) Eli Apple, CB.
» Round 2: (40) Sterling Shepard, WR.
» Round 3: (71) Darian Thompson, S.
» Round 4: (109) B.J. Goodson, OLB.
» Round 5: (149) Paul Perkins, RB.
» Round 6: (184) Jerell Adams, TE.
- Giants keep signing and drafting tight ends, I am so confused by this. I cannot knock them for taking Jerrell Adams late, because the guy should have been drafted in the first two rounds. I love the Sterling Shepard pick but I think they reached big time on Eli Apple. I would have traded down and tried to get him later. I give the Giants a B+ for their draft, but it could have been an A if they traded down in round one.
» Round 1: (No. 2 overall) Carson Wentz, QB.
» Round 3: (79) Isaac Seumalo, OG.
» Round 5: (153) Wendell Smallwood, RB; (164) Halapoulivaati Vaitai, OT.
» Round 6: (196) Blake Countess, CB.
» Round 7: (233) Jalen Mills, FS; (240) Alex McCalister, DE; (251) Joe Walker, ILB.
- The only pick I like from the Eagles draft class was Carson Wentz. The rest is hard to love. I think the Eagles really dropped the ball on this draft class. Smallwood should have not been drafted, but that is not my problem. Eagles land a C for their 2016 NFL Draft Class.
