Welcome back to another sportscast are I'm back for my first broadcast off the dead.
You guys saw the title today.
What we're gonna be doing is we're gonna be looking back at the 2018 1st round draft class down last Wednesday.
I looks back at the 2019 1st round draft class.
This is Episode two off three off Looking back at the first round draft class.
Now, for those of you have just joined, I do have two more broadcast that I'm doing today.
One on my channel.
I want another person's chance.
So you do want to stay till the end for those announcements.
Now, we will talk about what we're doing today.
So we're gonna be looking back at the first round draft class now.
What that means is I have the entire list off all the pics.
And on April 27th 2018 CBS published a grade report and recap for all off the pics.
Now, I'll be telling you guys to grade, and then I'll be stating my new grade for them and see how right CBS got these pics.
Um, so we will just wait for a couple more people to come in, Trickle, and you're as we move to the first round.
Now, let me remind you guys, this waas the, um this was the draft class where we had six quarterbacks taken in the first round.
So there will be six quarterbacks to talk about.
2018 was the first round draft class, so we will wait and see how this year's draft pans out.
So now we will be doing is, um, we will now go through the first round selections.
So our 1st 1 is the first pick in the 2018.
I'm chosen by the You remember how everyone was kind of hating on that pick, and it looks like for his rookie year, it did turn out pretty well now.
Last season, he didn't have his good as it of a year, but I do think the Brown still have, like a pretty decent ish quarterback.
The Browns were given a C for choosing bigger Mayfield at the time.
I wanna bump that up a little bit to a B minus because I do think Baker may feel can be a successful quarterback.
He does have to stay in control more, and he can't be blaming his receivers.
He's got two amazing receivers.
Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr.
He could make that work there, especially that adding Austin Hooper and you have Nick Chubb.
He should be thriving in that office.
I think that, um, with this new head coach, I do think that the Browns will be better this year and he was given a system CBS gave a must see for this pick.
I'm going to give it.
I'm going to give the Browns a B minus for the first pick.
So now we go to the second pick.
Barkley, the running back out of Penn State was drafted number two to the Giants in 2018.
CBS gave the Giants a C plus projecting Stay calm, Barkley.
I can see now that that was a big mistake.
Um, grading wise, I'm gonna bump that grade from a C plus all the way to an A.
The Giants have one key piece toe work with here, and I do think that sake bomb Barclay and Daniel Jones can be a great team together on they do still need receivers that had that has been a problem for them.
um, but we will.
Um I do think we will see the giants and say, Come on, Barclay.
A lot better this year.
Now, so far, we've had two pretty good players so far in their first year.
The, um it was that 12 punch in the rookie class.
It was the first time in a long time we've had the 1st 2 picks be in contention for the Rookie of the Year race. I did think it did.
Goto bigger a fuel, Um, that season.
So the the Giants were given a C plus for sake on Barclay.
Um, I am gonna move that all the way to an A.
I mean, that was great.
Um, that was a great pick by the Giants, and I think a lot of people were sleeping on him.
And I do think, say, Quan Barclay will be a great player in the NFL.
I'm gonna move that grade that Chris Coke from CBS gave him from a C plus all the way to an end.
I was a great pig by the Giants.
So, as as I have said, this was ah, highly rated quarterback class in 2018 the jets with the third pick drafted Sam Darnold.
He was a quarterback out of USC.
Now, I'm not gonna say this was so interesting, because Sam Darnold in two years, but he's been okay, but he hasn't been on May using, um, the Jets were given a C for landing Sam Darnold.
Um, with the other options that could have had, like that could have definitely have Lamar Jackson.
They could have had Josh Allen.
They could have, you know, Josh Rosen on me.
I don't really think he's gonna be pan out.
The Jets were given a C.
Now I do think the Giants could have are the Jess. I'm sorry.
Could have gotten a little bit better.
Um, but Sam Donald hasn't been so bad, so I'm gonna move that grade from a C to a C.
I do think Sam Darnold, he hasn't been horrible.
He hasn't been losing them games, but the Jets just don't have the talent to make the playoffs.
That is not same.
And I do think he could be a very successful player.
He has love Ian Bell.
So he has no real excuse to be performing band.
No, I didn't know last year.
He missed about, you know, almost half the season with mono, so that did affect him a little bit.
I expect a big bounceback season for Stand Ronald or else I don't.
I'm not sure if Sam Journal could be the quarterback of the future for the Jets, So we're now three picks in.
I have moved the great up just a little bit.
All of these players, This guy wasn't too high on all of them, So now we'll go to the Browns fourth round pick.
The bronze had two picks in the 1st 4 selections with the fourth pick.
If you guys can remember the brass pick Dense Award, who was a cornerback out of Ohio State now? In the past couple years, Ohio State has been known as D B University.
They've had so many great players at that corner position, and this year they have Geoffrey Oh, Kudo.
Well, I think will be a great star for the Lions, potentially.
After Darius Lee got traded to the Eagles, now Prisco gave the brands of B for taking Dens award.
Now I have to say I totally agree.
I mean, they could have gotten better players for their for that value with the fourth pick.
I don't think the Browns with especially the talent level they had, they could have had steak on Barclay and potentially Baker Mayfield, because I'm pretty sure, um, the Giants and the Jets weren't going to take bigger Mayfield so they could have had their guy and say, Quan Barkley, Now I did say this before the Browns gotta be for taking dens award.
I totally agree.
I think they could have gotten better.
But overall, Denzel War, it has been a pretty good player.
The cornerback number one in Cleveland.
Um, so I do agree for the first time with that grade, Denzel Warren pick was a beat.
So now we will go to the Broncos now.
And with the fifth pick they drafted Bradley Chub.
If you guys remember him, he was a defense in and out of N C State, the Broncos were given an A plus for drafting Bradley shop.
I think at this point now we can see Bradley troubles had a good courier, but not a star career like some of these other players in this draft class have had.
So I'm gonna move that grade down from an A plus about a B.
I mean, Brad would show, but he hasn't really had that breakout year that we've expected yet.
I know he doesn't play in Denver.
So especially out here on the East Coast and almost everywhere in the country, Denver is a remote place.
Um, you know, on the map.
So we don't see too many Broncos games around here, but I haven't heard too much from the Broncos ever about so many other Broncos players.
Radley shop has not been one of them, so I'm gonna have that great from an A plus, down to about a B for the Broncos with that fifth round pick.
So this one Now this one's interesting, because they we have our first offensive lineman taken in the draft with the sixth pick the Colts selected.
Quit Nelson, guard out of Northern Dame. Now quit.
Nelson has turned into an All Pro.
I mean, he is just a total stud so underappreciated I feel around the NFL.
I mean, he has been such a good player.
The culture, given a b, um, for taking quit Nelson, I'm gonna move that toe in a.
I mean, that was a great pick there by the Colts, and at that time they had Andrew Luck to y Hilton.
They had Jack Doyle on Eric Ebron.
I mean, they were set on offense.
All they needed was to protect Andrew Look, and they got one of the best guards to come out of the draft ever.
I would have give the Colts and A for that pig looking back a couple of years now.
This one is easier, then last week's because we're we.
Those players only had one year, these players some 10.
So it is easier to greed on these guys.
And now Wednesday, of course, we'll be looking back at the 2017 1st round draft class to round out this Siris.
I'm going to give the Colts and a for taking quote.
Nelson, um, who was a guard out of Notre Dame toe Help protect injured.
Look, now he's presenting Philip Rivers.
Um, he was protecting Jacoby were set for a little bit the Colts and nailed this pick.
So now we're gonna go to the bills now.
And according to CBS, the bill's got an A plus for draft in Josh Allen.
The Bills did trade up with the Buccaneers, sending two first round picks to the Bucks or two second round picks.
I'm sorry to second round picks to the Bucks to trade up into the into the seventh pick to get Josh Allen.
Josh on has panned out very, very well for the Bills.
And I think, are you.
He's the second best quarterback to come out of this draft class behind Lamar Jackson.
Um, the Bulls were given an A plus.
I want to live that down.
Just a teeny teeny bit, Um, to an A minus.
I think this was a great pick by the Bills to get their quarterback of the future, and I think he will be their quarterback off the future toe helped, um, get into the playoffs now.
I think the Bills are a playoff caliber team, especially with the Patriots weekending down a little.
But after losing Tom Brady, I think the Bills congrats really make a chance to either get that extra wildcard spot that was added this year or on to win the division overall and maybe get the third or fourth seed in the a f c.
I mean, these The bills will be very good at very high on the Bills and the bills.
And 2018 got theirselves a great quarterback.
Now they were given a plus.
It's hard to great Josh out at an A plus, so I'm gonna move it down on a Linus and a is still on a So that is a great day.
So now with the eighth pick, the Bears were up and they selected Roque Juan Smith, who was a linebacker out of Georgia.
Now, for those of you who don't remember, Roll Con Smith was the final rookie signs to a deal.
After all, 255 players signed their contract.
Broken Swiss did have a little some trouble.
Um, you're signing his deal and we've heard a little bit from him.
Um, added Chicago.
But really not too much.
Not that superstar We all thought he would be Row corn Smith.
That's a B at most I mean broken.
Smith has been a great player.
You were supposed to be the guy to replace Khalil Mack, or I'm sorry.
The guy's a compliment.
Quote coil back on, um, on the edge.
But, um, you know, really, The Bears haven't, you know, become that playoff caliber team.
They were 12 and four before they on that double doing kick in the playoffs against the Philadelphia Eagles after having a 12 in fourth season.
Um, so I'm gonna move that grade down from an A, which is what CBS gave them, and I'm gonna move it down to be I just don't think broke on.
Smith has been that great, um, star that we all expected to be.
Now, here's our first kind off.
You know, a guy who hasn't really been too, you know, in order day to no name off pencil lineman went in the top 10 in this draft like McGlinchy offensive tackle out in order.
Now, last time there were a ton of players that really either got hurt or just didn't play that much, Um, in the NFL last year.
Now, these players do have two years of experience under their belts.
Um, knives were given a butte biased.
You could already tell overall that this guy wasn't too high on this pick.
And I haven't really heard anything from them.
So actually, I want to move that down to about a C plus.
I mean, I've heard absolutely nothing from this guy at a San Francisco, and you look at all the other potential players, but 40 Niners could have drafted.
Um, I got to give him a C.
Plus, I I love that.
This was an offensive tackle class last year, but it just wasn't the best pick for the 40 Niners.
So I am gonna move that pig down to a C plus.
So now we're at number 10.
Um, so the only cardinals traded into the top 10 to get Josh Rosen now, they traded up and with for the Raiders, Um, now Rose.
And he did say, This is a quote.
There were nine mistakes ahead of me.
He was totally wrong.
All these players of both him.
Besides, you know, maybe one or two of these guys maybe Michael Gucci, But all these other players have had great careers.
And you have Josh Rose and bouncing from the Cardinals Coach Kingsbury.
The Dolphins want him.
The Dolphins were given, and hey or not, I'm sorry that cardinals were given an A for drafting job.
It's gonna well way down too bad a C minus.
I mean, Josh Rosen.
Like, I don't understand why you were so high on this guy Josh Rosen trading into the fur into the top 10.
That's gonna be our lowest grade off the draft so far.
Josh Rose and selected by the Cardinals.
I'm gonna give them a C minus.
They're not a great pick whatsoever.
Okay, so now we have our first kind of real star.
I guess you could say Mika Fitzpatrick who was a corner, um, slash safety out of Alabama.
The Dolphins traded him are traded him to the Steelers for a first round pick.
This upcoming are the last year in the in the middle of the year.
Now, what I loved about that is that the Skewers booster, their defensive line and he point absolutely amazing.
The Dolphins were given a B plus for selecting fits, passion, and they got another additional first round pick.
So they kind of do get a little bit of a tiff over the Fitzpatrick.
I want to move that right out from a people is to about two.
And a because the dolphins, after trading their first record, go away after a while employing a year, they got another first round pick back.
That means they had a great pick.
Their Mika Fitzpatrick, I think, will be a star in the NFL.
Uh, Dolphins will get an A in my opinion for selecting me Go Fitzpatrick with the 11 ***.
So now we have they selected Vita ve a defensive tackle out of Washington.
Um So Vita Vita has been, you know, you know, he has been a relevant players so far in this draft.
We've had very, very relevant players so far.
I mean, they've all been so far, pretty good picks.
In my opinion, this 2018 1st round draft us was actually very good if you look at it So we're not talking about video via, um, and keep in mind the, um the ah the Buccaneers traded down, um, from 7 to 12 with the bills.
So, after trading down with the bills, they still got a great player video via the buccaneers were given a B plus for taking video via I absolutely agree.
I think Vito Vega has been a great player for the Buccaneers, and I think he'll be continued to be a great player on that defense aside, the books were given a B plus for trading down with the bills for feed of a, uh in 2018.
I completely agree B plus for the Bills, or I'm sorry, the book in years, um, with that 12th pick.
So we are now at number 13 where my Washington Redskins had the 13th pick.
They made no trades, nothing like that.
With the 13th pick, they selected Deron Pain, who was a defensive tackle out of Alabama. Another.
The Redskins have gotten so many all players from either Alabama or Ohio State.
That is where they get the majority of their players, especially in the first and second rounds.
Um, in the draft and they've been boost during their defensive line.
Um, and back to back years, actually, they selected it.
Um, do in and out of Alabama.
Went from pain drum pain to then, um, can't put my finger on his name right now.
That is his name.
Um, which ones were gonna be for selected in Giron pain? Um, I might be a little bit biased, but Deron Pedro hasn't showed up to be kind of what we expected.
He's still a great player, and I think he will continue to be a good player.
I would have done just the slightest bit to aby blindness.
If you look at all the other players the Redskins could have drafted, they could have definitely traded back for potentially.
You know, other players that could have gotten during James.
Of course, they always have been lacking at safety.
They did some line to Collins, so we will see how that works out.
I do agree with Chris Goes, um, great here for the Redskins.
Now I am getting all these grades from CBS.
This article was written in 2018 April 27th the day after the first round in 2018.
So this is a soon as these players were drafted, and I find it fun just to look back and see, you know, kind of what? Yeah, you know, kind of how these pointers careers panned out next Wednesday will be working at the 2017 1st round draft class.
So follow me for that.
You don't want this that I also have another broadcast I'll be doing late tonight.
So you also want to stay till the end.
Um, so the, um So the Saints had the 14th pick here, The same strip in two first round picks, Um, gave up a 2019 1st round pick.
And they're, um they're 2018 1st round pick to to select Marcus Davenport.
It was a defensive end.
Um, the states were given a B minus for trading two first round picks for Mark and Marcus Davenport.
I'm gonna go a little bit lower if you trade two first round picks.
You have to be very sure and confident in the player that you were drafting.
Now, Marcus Davenport hasn't been getting too much, um, attention coming out of New Orleans.
And I'm not really sure how it's career will pan out.
Um, but where that we all have all kind of expected him to be, especially with the same straight into first round picks.
The States were given a B minus.
I'm gonna put a down the list, see? Plus, I mean, if you traded to now, if they didn't have to train and that was their pick, I wouldn't keep that b minus.
But the fact that you treated two first round picks to train into the first round.
Um, I'm not a fan of that at all.
Two first round picks to selected one.
His Davenport destruction with all the other players you could have drafted.
Um, not a big fan of this one at all.
C plus for the ST.
So now we are at number 15.
The Raiders made the 15th pick of the 2018 NFL draft years.
Kind of another guy that hasn't been getting too much attention.
I'm not sure who employs for now, but the Raiders didn't draft him.
Colton Miller, offensive tackle out of U. C L. A.
Now I haven't heard anything.
I'm cool to know.
I don't even recognize that name.
Um, the Raiders were given a B plus.
Now, simply because I don't know this guy, and I would say I'm a pretty deep NFL kind of person.
I read a lot of NFL stuff.
I haven't heard anything from this guy, so I'm definitely gonna give the Raiders.
I'm gonna move that great down from a B minus to a C. Plus.
I was not a big fan of that whatsoever.
And I do think the Raiders made a little bit of a mistake there, uh, drafting Colton Miller offensive tackle.
So we are now half way done.
We're at the halfway point.
Should I say with the 16th pick? The Bills also had a first round pick.
Now the Bills traded up, um, to get Tremaine Edmund's, who was a lawn doctor at a Virginia Tech. Knows something.
You should know about these Edmund's brothers, too, I believe.
Play for the Bills and then one place for the Steelers.
I do remember in the Sunday night matchup.
Um, I didn't get they didn't do a Jersey swamp.
Edmund's brothers in the NFL.
I do think for Main Edmunds is the top guy for Buffalo right now.
Bill's got a B plus for trading up for Trip made Edmund's I complete where a group that, um, trade entenmann's.
I mean, he's a great player.
The fact, um, they did have to trade up for him is kind of a little bit puzzling.
I do think they do.
They get to stick with that B plus a grating, simply because, um, you know, try made Edmund's has kind of turned into that many star.
I guess you could say, um, Tremaine Entenmann's has been an absolute great player for the Bills.
I think he will continue to be a great player as they move into that, um, playoff kind of caliber to that, I think they can become, um So I hosted with that B plus and just because they do have to trade for him now we're halfway done.
And now at the 17th pick, we have maybe the biggest star of them all.
Derman James slid all the way down to number 17 where the Chargers picked him up.
Girl in James has been an absolute stood for the Chargers, and I think he will continue to be a stud.
I do see a note here.
Chargers get an A for taking dear.
When James, after a surprising full, the Chargers should get an A plus for this Derwin James has just been such an amazing player for them that I think he might, you know, next to maybe Austin eh color.
At that time, Melvin Gordon and Philip Rivers, that team really had a chance to to make it to the playoffs.
I didn't That team was really good during James will be that star player.
I do think for the Chargers.
You know Keenan Allen during James in Austin, eh? Color all, of course, Hunter Henry for the charges.
This Chargers team, I think, can be very good.
They have to show that they can when they also do need a quarterback.
Um, right now, Tyrod Taylor is there can be one.
Not for a long when they most likely will draft Justin Herbert.
But you never know.
Jordan love is still available at that time.
Catherine Newton is also so free agent certain here in the past few weeks.
So we are now 17 picks through now in a 2018 1st round draft class.
So we will now move to number 18 Whether packers selected jury er Alexander corner out of Louisville.
Um, now the Packers did have to trade, um, back up to number 18.
Um uh, So they did have to trade.
They traded back originally, and then they did after trade back up to select this corner out of Louisville surgery.
Or Alexander The Packers got an A for it.
I'm not going to stick with that because Alexander hasn't really been to start.
I'm only giving a stir.
Brittle stars that did at that worm selected in the draft s.
So I am gonna move that down too.
Obi seems fair enough.
Um, you know, I haven't really heard again too much from career, Alexander, especially with the Packers trading up to get him.
Um, you know, I guess I must have sounded like a good thing at the time, But really, right now, it didn't look too great for the Packers.
Especially right now, trading back into the first round and Crisco giving them in a I'm moving that down to a B plus.
So now we will go to number 19.
Weren't No. They're surprising.
Star was selected.
All these teams passed on these guys you had during James.
And now you have What? The Nazis.
Big latent, Vander ish linebacker.
He played at Boise State for college.
Surprisingly, that cowboy's got in a fried in light.
And Vander ish, I completely agree.
Vander Esh has kind of replaced Sean Lee as that middle linebacker in Dallas.
Every team needs old middle linebacker, likely in Vander Slate.
Vera nourishes one of the best, um, one backers right now in the NFL.
I think I think a lot of people sleep on him.
He's a great player.
I agree with Prisco here.
Cowboys get an A for this selection.
So now we're 19 picks through.
We will now go to the lions.
Um, surprising to think the lines were drafting 20 just only a couple of years ago.
The last draft is center Frank Rag.
Now, Raghu, brand new.
We're going was grabbed new.
Um, he was a senator out of out of Arkansas.
Now again, I haven't heard anything out of Detroit on Rad New.
Um, the lines were given a B plus frying frank brand new to the interior of their offense of line.
Definitely not a B plus there.
I'm gonna move that down to a C A C.
Plus, um, you know, I haven't really heard that much.
I should move that down to a C because especially if you work out these next great players, their lines could have drafted.
See here that the lines did not make a very good thing at all.
You don't have to draft the center in the first round.
Okay, Centers, especially offensive lineman talent.
It's really hard to try to judge them because, you know, it's kind of hard.
The Colts gotta absolute correct with putting Nelson.
But there's only one quit Nelson in the draft.
Um, you know, the the the lines weren't trying to get another Clinton Nelson.
Wine's gonna see for drafting front door Agnew.
Another center was selected to centres going back to back.
Now, this one is definitely from a more higher school.
Billy Price, center out of Ohio State was drafted to the Bangles at 21 overall in 2018.
Now, we'll get nothing coming out of Cincinnati from I'm not sure where he is right now in his career.
But I do know nothing has been, um, said it about Billy Price.
I mean, I've heard absolutely nothing.
Adis Cincinnati for this guy Bangles got a C plus, right boo in price and addressing their old line need again.
I mean, I'm gonna stick with that last great I had for the lines.
Back to back centres going.
None of these centers have worked out so far in the first friend. I feel like senators.
Did you just have to get lucky a little bit? Most the best centers are drafted in day number two and a three knot in day one.
Some of the best centers even go undrafted, So it's really important that I don't I think you don't draft offense alignment in the first round.
So but because the talent level is just so hard to greed and you just don't really know what you're getting, you know, it's it's hard to categorize offensive lineman.
So it out 21 picks through.
Now you're getting two more of the playoff teams and the teams who are more contention in the 2017 season, which is crazy to remember.
Um, so with the 22nd pick, the Tennessee Titans select a rush on Evans linebacker out of Alabama.
So another Alabama, like another Alabama defensive player going in Day one or shot Evans.
I've been hearing just a teeny bit of that, and the Titans gotta be.
I'm gonna move it down to a B minus because I think rush on Evans has been a great player, but I just haven't heard enough of him to keep.
That'd be great.
I mean, I just haven't heard anything.
Really, Um, from Ra Shaun Evans.
Could that be? So? Now we have the Patriots up.
The Patriots also drafted a tackle are not also, but they drafted an offensive lineman.
I do believe that the second offensive tackle taken off the board here in the first round of the 2018 draft now again, Isaiah win.
I think he is starting right now for the Patriots.
The Patriots gotta be for adding win.
Um, to the offensive line.
I have to agree the excitement here in just a little bit more out of wind, Um, from the Patriots.
And I think he can turn into, you know, a good player, I think.
But, I mean, I don't know.
I don't really see the need of why you would draft.
Um, Lyman in the first Eilis.
You're totally sold on him.
I'm not sure how.
Um, you know how how sold the Patriots were on Isaiah win.
Uh, so I will stick with that beep.
So now we have the first receiver taken out of the draft.
The Panthers, with the 24th picks, like to deejay more.
Um, now, this is a quote from Steve Smith Jr.
The Panthers haven't replaced me until today.
So Steve Smith clear at that time I thought Do gym.
Or was that next guy? D. J.
Moore has been an absolute amazing player for the Carolina Panthers in his two seasons in the NFL.
He had a breakout year last year, and I think he will continue to have that breakout year with Teddy Bridgewater.
Um, it helps that Christian McCaffrey is on his team.
So the linebackers and the safety's do pay a little bit more. Attention.
Deejay more? Um, just amazing player.
Why does she write a Maryland? Um, excuse me.
Um, the Panthers were given an A for making DJ more than for the first receiver off the board.
Um, I'm gonna give him a B plus.
I mean, it was agreed.
You know what? I want to give him? Name honest.
I mean, it was d.
Moore has worked out the best possible way the Panthers could have asked for.
I mean, this is just a great pick here by the Panthers.
Just absolutely amazing.
Stoops, miss junior suits, Miss Senior, actually, should I say, really liked him? Um, coming out of Maryland and the Panthers did draft him, and I think he will be that wide receiver one continuing for the Carolina Panthers.
Just a great player.
Um, nothing more I can say about him.
He's just ordinary player.
So the Ravens, um, they traded down for the affords hide.
And I do believe it was also the first tight and taken off the board.
Uh, tight end at a South Carolina now.
Hey, didn't Hearst has was traded to the Atlanta Falcons, um, this past offseason.
But it is, um, it is two years with the Ravens.
I do believe he was the tight and one he played pretty well, But then this past year was he moved down the depth chart too tight.
A number two after Mark Andrews and Lamar Jackson had that great connection there.
Ravens get a B plus for taking Hidden Hearst after two trains down.
I'm gonna move that down just a little bit to a B.
Um hey, didn't Hearst was, you know, he was just a little bit above average for a little while for the Ravens, and then they did get I do believe, 1/5 round pick for Hidden Hearst.
Um, so I'm gonna stick with that B grade for Hearst.
So now we have our second wide receiver taken off the board than Atlanta Falcons.
Um, with the 26th pick selected Calvin Ridley, another Alabama player.
Um, Alabama has a ton off great wide receivers, as we've all seen, Um, the Falcons got only a b Fred and Calvin Ridley.
Um, so, yes, I do.
I don't agree with that grade.
I'm gonna give the Falcons up.
I want to give him an A minus because I think Calvin really will will really work out for the Falcons.
And I think he could be a great player.
He is definitely that wide receiver to behind Julio Jones.
That's perfectly fine, I think getting one of Muhammad's and you last year training him to the Patriots was good for Calvin Ridley.
Now we did get hurt in the fought, um, waiter in the year, but I do think that connection of Calvin, Ridley and, um, Julio Jones, those two receivers there in Atlanta for Matt Ryan and does suck that he is losing on Austin.
Who Burger the great player.
He can be treated as a wide receiver one at times, except you have Julio Jones still potentially one of the top receivers in the NFL.
I'm going to give the Falcons and aim honest for draft and Calvin, Really, with the 26 pickets.
Amazing looking back, how far down he's fled.
This was actually a really great draft class looking back way better than that 2019 1 that I did last week.
There were just players constantly that I haven't heard anything off and these players I'll know a little bit about.
I mean, it's great.
This draft class was amazing.
So the 27th pick now, um, the Seattle Hey Ryan back got a Saint Diego State.
Now He was a great player for sin.
Diego State's sending Russian yard runs Their Rashad Penny is the run back.
Number two, um, in Seattle, behind Chris Carson after his breakout year, or Shop A is still in a bone average.
The Seahawks were given a D for reaching for the shop Any in the first round, you might have reached a little bit, but I still think he's a great player.
I'm gonna give the Seahawks a B minus.
I mean, he's still great player.
The Seahawks still probably couldn't traded back.
But we're grading the players here, not the teams.
Um, so that I will give the Seahawks.
And it didn't look bad at them at that time, but I think it worked out pretty well for the Seahawks.
I'm gonna move that grade from a D to the two of being Linus.
Rashad Penny is still a great running back for the Seahawks helping out Russell Wolves.
And after Marsh, Hamlisch left him.
Um, Penny and Chris Carson are too great running backs hoping out Seattle, um, they are getting in some receivers back.
Um you know, do you, Kay Metcalf, all these great players, Uh, so I am going to give the Seahawks, um, I'm gonna move that harsh grade from the D all the way to a B minus a good job.
See, Oxygen did reach from a little bit, but it's okay.
It turned out well for you in the end.
So we now have five picks left.
We're now at pick number 28 here in the first round.
Um, Toral Edmonds.
I was right the second Edmund's brother, um, selected out of Virginia Tech Toral.
Edmunds is a safety now linebacker like his brother.
Um, So the Steelers were also given a be own for adding on Inman's brother to their second marriage.
Tortorella Edmonds Is his name safety out of Virginia Tech? I gotta agree with this grade.
Um, B is probably a solid gate for Ciara Lemons on the other.
Edmund's brother, who was selected with thes um, let me see what the 16 picture main entenmann's.
I think he has had a much better courier.
They have each of these players.
All these players that we've been talking about have only put in two years in the NFL.
At the Max, a couple of these players have gotten hurt.
Ah, so it's a little bit hard to grade their experience with the not the amount of experience that they have only two years under their belt.
Um, so we now have four selections remaining.
The Jacksonville Jaguars.
Um uh, this I forgot this was there after championship here.
There were only a couple of plays away from going to the Super Bowl that year.
Um, so what? The 29th pick, they slept in a table in Brian defensive tackle out of Florida.
Now, this was a Saxon bill.
That was their nickname.
Um, the Jaguar has got a B plus branding Taye von Brunn's too deep to the defensive line.
No, again, he probably got trained, like all the other Jacksonville Jaguars players.
Um, but really, like with all the reporters they have, Brian has gotten kind of lost in Jacksonville.
Um, I'm not really sure how Jacksonville has was so good.
And then he just kind of, uh And then they just kind of, you know, went down from their trading Wait.
All their star players now starting again, we'll see who they draft this year.
But in 2018 they drafted David Bryant.
They gotta be Prisco gave him a B plus for this.
I'm gonna move that **** lis.
See, cause I mean, David and Bryan, I've heard Jack squat.
Nothing from this guy.
Um, in Jacksonville.
Um, you know, that's all I got for this big three more remaining.
The last two players are very, very good players.
Um, that were drafted.
So what? The 30 is big.
The Minnesota Vikings liked in Mike Hughes corner at a central Florida.
The Vikings were given a B.
I completely agree.
I mean, Mike use he's e I think he could be that corner one after trading away, um, egg savior roads.
Or I think they just let him walk.
Not sure if they traded or he hit free agency.
But I'm, like, use.
I think he can be, Ah, good Corner.
But he isn't that, you know, locked down that corner that quarterbacks are scared of so that I will give the, um, you know, the Vikings on B minus.
I will stick with that grade that Crisco gave the Vikings to picks remain.
These two players arguably are some of the best.
Um, but they are arguably some of the best in this draft.
With the 31 with the 31st selection in the first round, the Patriots select in Sony.
Michelle, running back out of Georgia.
He was drafted in front of his arm.
His brother, also from Georgia.
Um, Nick Chubb, now Sony Michelle and Nick Chubb.
You know, they're both great players.
Nick Troubles turned into a little bit of a better player over there in Cleveland.
Sony Michelle go is a great player, and I agree with this, I'm great again.
The Patriots were given a B for bringing Sony Michelle into their backfield.
Um, I don't think the Patriots so far than usual utilizing Sony Michelle to the best, um, best of his abilities.
I think Sony Michelle can do so much more.
But as you know, the Patriots, you know, they just doing it.
They're patriot way having all these running backs.
I don't think they're really, truly utilizing Sony Michelle's Max capacity.
And I don't think the pictures understand how good of a running back Sonny Michelle could be if they featured him as the top back.
So now, Mr Irrelevant in the first round, he potentially Yeah.
32nd overall pick in the 2018 draft won the N v p unanimously at Drew Believe.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
The unanimous N v p.
Lamar Jackson, quarterback out of Louisville.
The Ravens were given a B for taking Lamar Jackson after a trade with the Eagles.
Gotta give the Ravens and a plus B only a plus that I have given in this draft and I think it is.
You know, it is so important that you categorize Lamar Jackson over all the other guys who were in this draft.
The Ravens get an A plus for drafting Lamar Jackson, so I will run through all the pics.
