I know it is unfair to rate a draft this soon . But it is a long long time until there is real football to watch so here is my take .
Dallas Cowboys - I like the move they made to snatch Claiborne in the first , it was an aggressive move and really fills up a need . Of course I will trash talk about the wonderlic score but in the end I think it has no real impact .
I think they could have done more to sure up the S position but the talent wasn't really there in this draft but Johnson is a major reach where he was selected .
They also could have done more on the interior of the line and I think they have overdrafted the ILB position over the last couple of years but overall a solid draft highlighted by Claiborne .
Philadelphia Eagles I always knew the Eagles loved Cox (insert s******ing here) I can imagine there will be some disturbing half dressed pictures of the newest greatest hope the eagles have drafted but again he is a good pickup for the Eagles and fits their wide 9 and rush first mentality ... Vinny Curry was another good addition to that line . The problem I have is the history of the Eagles with DL prospects is not great .
I like Mitchell Kendricks but again I question if he will ever live up to his potential if the Eagles play on him on the outside . I see him as an outstanding MLB in the 4-3 but not sure he will be as good at OLB given his size and limitations - but still a great pick up
Brandon Boykin has the potential to be a good rotational part of that secondary Kelly was a reach and Foles was drafted too early but I can see them getting a 2nd round pick for him down the line .
McNutt Brown and Washington are going to struggle to make the team but could be decent contributors or wash outs... Overall on paper another outstanding draft from the Eagles but they tend to have outstanding drafts in April but lack lustre in September . Potentially the best draft in the East ..
New York blue team alpha There is nothing i like about this team who reside in NY . However unlike each of the other teams who were agressive throughout the draft this 9-7 team seems to have been under the impression they were perfect and needed and fell asleep at the top of the first round .
David Wilson fills a need and is not a bad player ... just not a player to be taken at the back of the first round . But I do think they were locked on at RB and wanted Doug Martin who TB swooped in and took . I also am not impressed with Ruben Randell, a big guy who cannot get separation in collage is likely to translate into a big guy who cannot get separation in the pros .... still a typical Giants pick on the lines of Steve Smith, and Manningham
Jayron Hosley was a solid pick and will fit in well in that secondary and will get his chance to start with the injuries and with Ross flying the coop . The OL depth in McCants Mosley will add youth to an aging unit but they will at some point need to invest some major resources on the offensive line ..
Adrien Robinson boom or bust pick in a draft that was weak for TEs . Markus Kuhn looks like camp fodder but the Giants line is tough to crack . I am disappointed yet again the Giants ignored the LB position again as they need some spark there which has historically been the weak link on a dominating defense .
But it is not a terrible draft, just the least good of the NFCE teams and the Giants do draft well but I am not seeing anyone in this class being the extra spark that improves their 9-7 regular season record so they can defend their crown, but then it would have to be an extra special player to make an impact on a Superbowl winning team ....
