Grading the Cleveland Browns (25th overall) 1st Round Pick

Player Selected: Jabrill Peppers S, Michigan

Initial Reaction: Building up that defense, Peppers has some question marks both on and off the field but if he can pull it together should be an explosive player on the field. Adding him to 1st pick Myles Garrett is tough to complain about if you are a Brown fan.

Disclaimer: I agree you can’t grade a player before they even put a jersey on, but what fun would that be?

Grading the Oakland Raiders 1st Round Pick

Player Selected: Gareon Conley CB, Ohio St.

Initial Reaction: Too damn risky, nobody questions Conley’s talent and he very well could be cleared of all charges which I hope he does. But overly risky for a 1st round pick who has questions around him. If he is cleared, I will completely retract this grade and give it an A+ immediately.

Grading the New York Giants 1st Round Pick

Player Selected: Evan Engram TE, Mississippi St.

Initial Reaction: Ummmm guys, did you forget David Njuko was on the board. Don’t get me wrong I like Engram but not over Njuko. The need was there but I think they got the guy wrong. Regardless Engram will start as a rookie and we’ll see what he can bring.

Grading the Miami Dolphins 1st Pick

Player Selected: Charles Harris DE, Missouri

Initial Reaction: Harris racked up 18 sacks in 3 years at Missouri. A pass rushing specialist who needs to work on his game against the run. The Phins should get some sack numbers out of him early in his career and he adds youth to the lacking pass rush in Miami.

Grading the Detroit Lions 1st Round Pick

Player Selected: Jarrad Davis LB, Florida

Initial Reaction: Was completely expecting Taco here. Jarrad Davis fills a need at linebacker, is a sideline to sideline backer who plays well against the run. Type of guy that can be a leader on the defense. Lions have proven themselves on offense, need to start concentrating on D.
