1. New York Jets
The Jets did great in this draft by getting who I feel is the best quarterback in the draft. Then they traded up to get the most versatile offensive lineman in the draft. Awesome job. Jets fan should be ecstatic with this draft so far.
2. Detroit Lions:
Lion fans should be happy with this draft so far to have the best offensive lineman in the draft to fall to them at seven is a huge win. They got a pro bowl lineman for year’s to come.
3. Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys did a great job trading down a couple of spots to gain an extra pick. Then they still land one of the most dynamic linebackers in the draft. Great Job Cowboys. Fan should be happy with this draft so far.
1. New Orlean Saints
Saints fans should be unhappy right now. They went with an edge rusher that they could have probably got in the 2nd round maybe even the 3rd round. This was a huge stretch for the Saints. They could of got a much better quality player with this pick.
2. Green Bay Packers
Packers fans should be angry right now. First Rodgers wants out. Then you draft a position that wasn’t a huge need at all. Plus the guy they picked probably would have still been there for them in the second round Then you still neglect your offense. Bad News all around for the Packers. Sorry Packer fans.
3. Oakland Raiders
If I was a Raiders fan I would be pissed about this pick. They take an offensive lineman that they could have got in the second round. There was a much better quality offensive lineman left for this spot. This was a huge stretch for them. The Raiders doing what the Raiders always do blundering their draft from the beginning.
I hope you enjoyed my day one draft recap. Please comment to let me know what you think of my draft recap. I would be more than happy to discuss any teams and players grade further.
