Obviously we probably won't be able to say any of this with certainty until 3 or so years from now. But based off of what you know now, who would you say the winners and losers are?

My favourite drafts all things considered:

Ravens
Browns
Colts
Chargers
Redskins

Really disliked the Bears and Cincy - too much boom or bust in the latter.

I think this is the best I've felt about a Packers draft after it finished.

I will say, Seattle added a good group of Defense players.

The OL upgrade is going to rely on Pocic being able to play outside it seems.

I think that Seattle could've found the next generation of defensive talent for that franchise, but I also think that they really have neglected the O-line. And should anything happen to Russell Wilson, they are 100% responsible for that.

That's fair to say, but this is probably my favorite Bengals draft in a while. Aside from adding some dynamic talent to the offense in Ross and Mixon, why I really loved it was the additions of Willis and Lawson. We finally got away from the oversized DEs who can't really rush the passer and got two guys who I believe can. Dunlap and MJ93 on early downs, with Willis and Lawson coming in the nickel and pass rushing situations. We addressed a lot of needs in this draft and I can see at least 5 guys (Ross, Mixon, Willis, Lawson, and Jake Elliott) seeing significant playing time as rookies...

Loser: Joe Flacco. He probably thought for sure he'd get that #1, and I'm convinced WR was plan A for the Ravens. I don't think anyone had all 3 WRs going top 10. Even his brother, a backup at Western Michigan, has gotten to experience throwing to Corey Davis Laughing Ravens didn't add a single offensive skill position player, and the only offensive players were two day 3 guards.

OTOH, Dean Pees has what should be one of the easiest jobs in the league. Pees has to have some dirt on someone way up in the FO.

My favorite team, obviously.

The Panthers grabbed

- a kicker for competition purposes though I don't think he'll beat Graham Gano
- corner depth with Corn Elder, who will be the primary nickel backup and can also play outside if needed. Could also get some looks as a returner.
- Daeshon Hall who is 6'5 270 with 35" arms and will be molded for next season while he learns from some great DE vets we currently have
- Alex Armah, who played FB, TE, DE, and LB at his tiny school. Will be a FB for us but could also motion to inline and be a major special teamer. Has to beat our Darrel Young for the job.
- Taylor Moton who will challenge for the RT gig but will likely be our main swing lineman for now

And most importantly we got Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel. Our GM gave CMC a Curtis Martin comparison as a runner which is high praise. Rivera mentioned we'll be taking advantage of his versatility and create mismatch nightmares by having him line up at tailback, outside, in the slot, wherever. Will also be first in line to be punt returner. Samuel will take the Ted Ginn role of "guy who runs past everyone and then catches it for a long touchdown." Will primarily be a slot guy with some looks in the backfield a la Percy Harvin or Tyreek Hill. The offense desperately needed homerun hitters. I love J-Stew and Olsen and Benji is OK I guess but they don't have breakaway speed like these two do. Plus with these guys being such huge threats, it will only help get the others open and make big plays themselves. Really, really excited to see this offense in action. Should reach 2015 levels of entertaining.

I'm shocked at how well the Colts drafted. Grigson being gone will be a God send for Andrew Luck. Grigson was a moron.

Really happy with the Cowboys draft, and I really don't say that every year.

Taco Charlton - immediately in the DL rotation
Chidobe Awuzie - will compete for snaps at both CB and S
Jourdan Lewis - if we trade Scandrick, he might be our starting nickel
Ryan Switzer - #4 WR and PR
Xavier Woods - possible starter at SS, competing with Jeff Heath

The rest I'm kinda meh on, I will say I hope we keep Noah Brown just because he has very nice potential.

we also added two free agents. Neither have stellar teack records, but neither were the worst in the lewgue at their position at least Laughing

Joeckel kind of is one of the worst in the NFL if you play him at LT. Wink

Haven't had much time to analyze all team's drafts yet but I will say I loved the Packers draft. Off the top of my head, I really liked what Baltimore and New Orleans did aswell!

Except, the OL prospects for this draft were probably the worst in a long time with very few potential starters, if any. No use drafting guys who aren't likely to produce, just bit the bullet and wait for a better draft.
