I thought all three teams hit on their first round picks. Star could end ip being the best player in the draft. Banks is a great corner and Vaccaro is a pretty good safety.

Then it started to crumple. Carolina didn't address thier secondary, and drafted another RB instead. TB didn't address the NT position, and they unwisely drafted Glennon, when QBs were free falling.

New Orleans had an amazing UDFA haul, though

Tampa did great between revis / spence.

Carolina gave cam some WR help.

NO... added the best safety in the draft.

Our division is still one of the toughest if not the best one.

Carolina didnt draft a WR.

Carolina:
-Really love Star. He is the best player in the draft imo. I dont like the Short pick. He is similar to Star, and I dont think they will work together well. Dont like Kugbila that early, and Klein and Barner werent needs. Didnt address secondary or receivers.(B-)

New Orleans:
-Vaccaro was a good pick, but I dont think it was a need with Jenkins as their FS. Not a fan of Armstead. He probably wont make a impact anytime soon. Really like Jenkins in the 3rd. Could start from day 1. Stills could be a steal late. Still didnt address their pass rushers, nor their corners.(B)

Tampa Bay:
-Banks is a nice selection in the second. Should be able to play from day 1. Glennon is a huge head scratcher. Dont understand it at all. Really dont like Spence, Gholston, Means, or James. Still have no pass rushers, and didnt bring in anyone for Freeman to pass to.(C-/B- with Revis)

Pretty much this but I think Vaccaro isn't going to be anything too special. Probably a 7-8 year decent starter. Also I think saying Star was the best in the draft is a bit of a reach. Him and Sheldon Richardson were both around 10 or so on my big board.

I don't understand the vacarro pick. He's a good player but it was a huge need. There was a lot of other places they need help.

i think with back to back picks for Carolina at DT their line is going to be tough. they add Star and SHort to CJ and Hardy, i see trouble. they sacked us about 10x last year

Star and Short don't compliment each other very well as Devils pointed out. Their DL on paper does look good though
