Arizona Cardinals – A-

Monti Ossenfort and the Cardinals made 12 selections over the weekend. Darius Robinson, Max Melton, Isaiah Adams, and Elijah Jones will help right away. Xavier Thomas and Christian Jones were great values. Marvin Harrison Jr. is now a top 10 wide receiver in dynasty and a lock to be the consensus 1.01 in single quarterback leagues. Trey Benson will immediately warrant touches and is now in the conversation as the RB 1 in the class.

Atlanta Falcons – D+

Atlanta had some really good picks in Bralen Trice and Brandon Dorlus, and they could have really benefited from their franchise to use the No. 8 overall pick on a guy that would help them win before their second contract. The Falcons picked three fantasy relevant players, but I will be fading all three.

Michael Penix Jr. has potential, but the waiting game is NOT fun. Jase McClellan and Casey Washington will be rookie free agents when drafts are completed.

Baltimore Ravens – B+

Another draft in the books, another year where the Ravens just pounce on value. Speedy cornerback Nate Wiggins in the first, late riser Roger Rosengarten in the second, athletic pass rusher Adisa Isaac in Round 3, and cornerback T.J. Tampa in Round 4 were all some of the best value picks of the weekend. Wide receiver Devontez Walker found his way onto a roster that will keep him in the second round of rookie drafts. Rasheen Ali will be a high upside late round pick.

Buffalo Bills – B+

Brandon Beane left the NFL Draft getting a number of players off of their “need list.” Cole Bishop, DeWayne Carter, and Sedrick Van Pran-Granger will see significant reps in their secondary and on both sides of their line. Keon Coleman will be brought into a situation where he will see a lot of targets. Coleman is still a raw wide receiver but will have a quarterback that will get him the ball in a number of spots on the field. Coleman has WR 4 upside with this landing spot. Ray Davis is a must draft in the third or fourth rounds of rookie drafts.

Carolina Panthers – C

Xavier Legette, Jonathon Brooks, and Ja’Tavion Sanders will all be reliant on Dave Canales ability to develop Bryce Young. Aside from Brooks, I don’t know if I’m willing to board that ship. They are one of the teams that get one of the so-so NFL Draft Grades.

Chicago Bears – A-

The Bears only made five picks in the 2024 NFL Draft, and one of those picks was burned on a PUNTER. Despite that specific pick being an F, they nailed all four other picks. Kiran Amegadjie falling to No. 11 pick in the third round was fantastic. Caleb Williams was and still is a first-round pick in startups.

Rome Odunze is still a top 7 pick in superflex rookie drafts. Even with the punter selection, Chicago still earns one of the higher NFL Draft Grades.

Cincinnati Bengals – B

Nothing particularly flashy from the Bengals, but they made good, smart picks throughout the NFL Draft. They addressed their offensive line, their defensive interior line, and double tapped the tight end position. Erick All and Tanner McLachlan will be in a similar situation that we saw from Green Bay last year. Jermaine Burton lands well and will immediately complete with Andrei Iosivas and Charlie Jones to be the WR 3.

Cleveland Browns – D

It is tough to have a successful draft when they only had two picks inside the top 150. Jamari Thrash was a fifth-round pick that shouldn’t be targeted in rookie drafts.

Dallas Cowboys – B+

As fantasy managers, we are furious with Dallas’s lack of focus on offensive skill guys. However, in terms of NFL team building, they had a really strong showing. Jerry Jones added strong depth to their offensive line, they added much needed linebacking help, and picked an absolute savage in Caelen Carson. Ryan Flournoy will have a chance to compete with Jalen Tolbert. Rico Dowdle supporters, stand up!

Denver Broncos – C

Denver made really strong picks but had to reach in Round 1 and didn’t have a second-round pick. Jonah Elliss and Kris Abrams-Draine will have a chance to play immediately. Bo Nix is now in consideration as a late Round 1 pick in rookie drafts, and Troy Franklin landed in the only situation that sparks interest.

Javonte Williams is among the biggest losers post NFL Draft. Audric Estime is a similar prospect but was actually sought after by Sean Payton.

Detroit Lions – C

Brad Holmes smashed a home run in Round 1 with Terrion Arnold and walked away with one of my favorite values in the entire draft when they picked Christian Mahogany in Round 6. Ennis Rakestraw was at the top of the list for cornerbacks that will “bite kneecaps.”

Green Bay Packers – C

The Packers made 11 overall selections in this year’s NFL Draft. Their first three picks were talented players that will continue this team’s ascension in the NFL. MarShawn Lloyd is facing a red shirt year. Think Kendre Miller whenever evaluating Lloyd.

Houston Texans – C

My favorite pick by Houston was their third-round selection of Calen Bullock from USC. A lot of solid, but not overly exciting, picks and nothing fantasy relevant from the Texans.

Indianapolis Colts – B-

Laiatu Latu is going to be my favorite to win the Defensive Rookie of the Year heading into the season. Adonai Mitchell joins the team and gives Anthony Richardson another awesome weapon. Mitchell’s ceiling is capped unless he proves to be better than Michael Pittman Jr. and that seems unlikely.

Jacksonville Jaguars – F

Trent Balke did Trent Balke things and didn’t attack the holes in this lackluster franchise. Brian Thomas Jr. will be solid for fantasy and should be targeted towards the end of Round 1 in superflex, but could end up having a massive problem if Lawrence starts looking for Gabe Davis as his third option early on.

As a result, the Jaguars receive one of the worst NFL Draft Grades.

Kansas City Chiefs – A-

Kansas City continued to make picks that will fill important roles as they seek to 3-peat. Xavier Worthy lands on the Super Bowl champions and will be a top 5 wide receiver in rookie drafts. Jared Wiley should be on all the taxi squads in dynasty. Isiah Pacheco folks can rest easy that he is the guy heading into 2024. The Kansas City Chiefs put themselves in excellent position to repeat with one of my better NFL Draft Grades.

Las Vegas Raiders – D+

The Raiders started the night off strong when they grabbed the best tight end and the best center in the NFL Draft, but after that it was a steady dose of bad picks. Brock Bowers will be a weapon in their offense that should not matter if Michael Mayer has a role. The more concerning aspect is who will be playing quarterback. Dylan Laube lands on a team that will utilize his skills right away, but it will take time to see that develop.

Los Angeles Chargers – B

The new regime for the Chargers displayed why they were so sought after. Joe Alt is a foundational tackle that immediately makes the Chargers offensive line scary for many years to come. Cam Hart was a great pick in Round 5. Ladd McConkey will be on everyone’s radar once the big three wideouts are off the board. Kimani Vidal is interesting, but Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins will not make his path to playing time easy.

Los Angeles Rams – B

Aaron Donald leaving was a massive loss, but the Rams attempted to fill his role with their first two selections. Many are saying that Blake Corum has already buried the value of Kyren Williams, but this makes the situation as a whole a little less desirable. Buy Kyren if his value dips in league markets. Jordan Whittington immediately becomes a player worth watching through camp.

Miami Dolphins – B

This wide receiver class was incredibly deep, and Miami utilized that as good as any franchise in the class. They ignored the position early to address other areas like pass protection and pass rushing. Malik Washington and Tahj Washington are in great situations but should not be targeted before Round 4 in rookie drafts.

Jaylen Wright however landed PERFECTLY. I cannot believe I missed this throughout the process. At worst, Wright is on the short side of a platoon. This is fine given his home run ability.

Minnesota Vikings – B-

Kwesi Adofo-Mensah made seven picks and wasted one on a kicker. Even so, getting J.J. McCarthy (who is a LOCK to be a top seven pick in superflex) and Dallas Turner alone makes this a good draft.

New England Patriots – B-

As a Patriots fan, I LOVE THIS DRAFT! Although I have to be objective when grading it out. If they had selected Kiran Amegadjie over Caedan Wallace and Adonai Mitchell over Ja’Lynn Polk this grade would have been an A+. Drake Maye is the second best QB for fantasy gamers with long term aspirations and QB 3 if winning early is the goal. Then, there is Javon Baker. If you don’t think that his “I make people in wheelchairs stand up” comment didn’t cause him to rise up the ranks, I don’t know what to say. Javon Baker is the 1.01 for leagues that give points to s-tier quotes.

New Orleans Saints – B

New Orleans did the dang thing this year. Taliese Fuaga and Kool-Aid McKinstry were fantastic selections that will help this team win football games right away. Spencer Rattler is a fine dart throw late in rookie drafts but his path to being a starting QB is almost non-existent, barring an injury.

New York Giants – B+

Tyrone Tracy Jr. is the exact kind of running back they should have been targeting given his upside in the passing game. Tracy will be a favorite “sleeper” in all formats. Malik Nabers is still a blue-chip prospect that has a clear path to seeing 130+ targets as a rookie.

New York Jets – C-

Aaron Rodgers got some help when the Jets selected Olu Fashanu in Round 1 and three others that play offense. (I’m not counting Jordan Travis) Malachi Corley will be a more important NFL player than a fantasy one and I will be hesitant to take him where he will be going. Neither Braelon Allen nor Isaiah Davis should be selected. Their path to touches will forever be cloudy.

Philadelphia Eagles – A

Howie Roseman does it again folks. Quinyon Mitchell, Cooper DeJean, and Jalyx Hunt will bring a ton to their defense from Day 1. Legacy pick Jeremiah Trotter Jr. provides the Eagles linebacker room with the thump that they desperately need. Round 4 pick Will Shipley will end up being one of the most important handcuffs in fantasy.

One injury to the starter and Shipley has RB 1 upside. This was clearly one of the best NFL Draft Grades given the players the Eagles were able to acquire.

Pittsburgh Steelers – A+

No team, including the Bears, made their offense better this offseason than the Steelers. Whether it is Russell Wilson or Justin Fields, he will have weapons in the passing game that now includes Roman Wilson. The running back is about to blow up. I’m getting ALL of the Najee Harris shares that I can. I still like Jaylen Warren, but I’d guess he’s going to be more expensive. Troy Fautanu, Zach Frazier, and Mason McCormick instantly make their offensive line one the best in the AFC North. As a result, the Steelers receive the one of the best NFL Draft Grades.

San Francisco 49ers – D

Ricky Pearsall was a REACH in Round 1 and will have to fall to make it onto my radar. Give me Ladd McConkey, Keon Coleman, and Roman Wilson in that range. Dominick Puni is a good player, but the Niners didn’t do enough to improve their defensive line. Isaac Guerendo is now the equivalent of flood insurance for anyone who rosters CMC.

Seattle Seahawks – C

Mike Macdonald wants to set up his “run wall,” and Byron Murphy II is a home run pick. My favorite takeaway that wasn’t fantasy related was that the Christian Haynes and Murphy reps in camp will be ELECTRIC. This team did not make any fantasy relevant picks which I hope is not a foreshadowing for how this team will operate.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers – C+

The Buccaneers draft wins the most boring picks award. Graham Barton is awesome and a good pick in Round 1, but the rest were solid but not exciting. Jalen McMillan and Bucky Irving will have roles, but neither will provide fantasy gamers with anything to rally around.

Tennessee Titans – C+

Will Levis is getting the support from his head coach and front office. JC Latham is a mauler that will help protect Levis’s blind side. T’Vondre Sweat is equally as massive and will eat opposing running backs. The Titans are trending in the right direction, and that will always be good for any fantasy relevant players on the roster.

Washington Commanders – A

Adam Peters CRUSHED his first draft as the Commanders team builder. The Commanders grabbed six players inside the top 100. Luke McCaffrey got the appropriate draft capital, and he has to be valued in the third and fourth rounds of rookie picks. Jayden Daniels should be valued the same as he was a week ago.
