I'm not a fan of draft grades. Who likes to have a test graded when you haven't even taken the exam yet? With that said, I do believe that we can peek into how teams managed their drafts, and how they addressed some of their needs relative to the draft board.
Let's take a look at the draft hauls of the 32 teams in the league. In putting this list together, I looked at how teams addressed their needs, operated within the confines of their draft picks and sprinkled in my own assessments of some of their selections. Here are my rankings of each team's haul, from 1-32.
1. Tennessee Titans
Draft picks:Jack Conklin (No. 8 overall), Kevin Dodd (No. 33 overall), Austin Johnson (No. 42 overall), Derrick Henry (No. 45 overall), Kevin Byard (No. 64 overall), Tajae Sharpe (No. 140 overall), LeShaun Sims (No. 157 overall), Sebastian Tretola (No. 193 overall), Aaron Wallace (No. 222 overall), Kalan Reed (No. 253 overall)
2. Baltimore Ravens
Draft picks:Ronnie Stanley (No. 6 overall), Kamalei Correa (No. 42 overall), Bronson Kaufusi (No. 70 overall), Tavon Young (No. 104 overall), Chris Moore (No. 107 overall), Alex Lewis (No. 130 overall), Willie Henry (No. 132 overall), Kenneth Dixon (No. 134 overall), Matt Judon (No. 146 overall), Keenan Reynolds (No. 182 overall), Maurice Canady (No. 209 overall)
3. Jacksonville Jaguars
It's hard not to love adding two of the top five talents in the draft within the first two rounds, but Myles Jack must stay healthy. GM Dave Caldwell's draft combined high-end talent with quality speculation (DEs Yannick Ngakoue and Tyrone Holmes) and productive talent from quality programs (Sheldon Day and Brandon Allen).
4. San Diego Chargers
It's hard to find fault with what the Chargers did in the first two rounds, as they attacked needs with top-rated players. Along the way, the Chargers found a punter, a starting center and an explosive linebacker in Jatavis Brown whom some evaluators believe can become a draft steal if the Chargers have a plan for him.
