Steelers made one of the most genuine surprises in the draft by taking the other Edmunds brother in the 1st round. I thought Terrell was a physical athlete but lacked a lot of polish and was more of a 3rd or 4th round prospect. The Steelers must feel he's a quick learner because they run one of the more complex schemes for a safety. Edmunds is capable of playing either spot but he'll likely be tried at FS. Washington is a strong scheme and character fit for Pittsburgh. He engulfs everything with enormous mitts and bullies his way into his routes. He'll need to learn to effectively beat the jam to be effective.

 

Rudolph is a slightly better version of Landry Jones. He doesn't have a strong arm but throws with accuracy to all levels and has good mobility in the pocket. Okorafor is a solid developmental OT. Allen has prototype size, speed and character but he's been a terribly leaky tackler at PSU. He's got the potential to take over for Mitchell eventually though. Samuels was one of the more versatile skill players in the draft. I think his best fit is as a receiving HB..but he can run and block out of the backfield. Frazier a solid flier late.

 

UDFA LB Thomas was one of my favorite guys in the draft. He doesn't quite play like he tested but he is versatile and physical with the capability to play inside and out on the edge. RB Franklin should stick, especially if Bell sits out games.

The Bengals OL let them down last season as they counted on unproven guys to step up but they rarely did. Billy Price is a plug and play interior guy and should solidly the pivot for years to come. S Bates on the other hand was vastly overrated imo. He's essentially a corner playing safety so he brings good speed, fluidity and ball skills but is an embarrassingly leaky tackler. He'll fit as a nickel guy and could exel as a cover guy in that role but I'm skeptical he''ll be much more.

 

DE/OLB Hubbard was another overrated guy. He's versatile but not impactful as much more than a clean up guy. Walton is an intriguing talent and should make an impact if he can stay on the field. He's a shiftier Gio Bernard but not as physical. CBs Harris and Phillips are solid mid round gets. I'd predict DT Andrew Brown to be one of the bigger steals of the draft. He was spread out at Virginia instead of sticking with his bread & butter as a 3T pass rusher. He's got first step quickness and impressive athletic ability.

 

Woodside is an Andy Dalton doppelganger. I was also higher on OG Rod Taylor than most and think he's a great late round pick. Tate might fit best at TE but his red zone ball skills should be a help. UDFA Flowers is an intriguing talent. I see him more as a RB than QB. LB Worley is also a good bet to stick.

While the Ravens defense remains steady, their offense has diminished as playmakers aged or busted. The team attempted an offense face lift this offseason with veteran skill players and continued the theme in the draft. Hurst is an over aged prospect but he's got Kelce like ability for the position. Trading back up to take a flier on the run first Jackson is a risky move. While he's running ability is among the best ever at the position, he's a considerable project as a passer who never proved he could win strictly with his arm in college.

 

OL Brown is a solid fit and should earn a role inside or outside. His lack of athletic ability was overblown this draft season. TE Andrews has good linear speed & size but carries shaky hands and sub par lateral agility. Averett is a great athlete that was outshined by superior talents at Bama. If he's smart and a grinder, he'll find a long term career somewhere in the league. I liked LB Young a bit more than most. He's heady and flies to the ball all over the field.

 

Huge fan of WR Scott. Tremendous catch radius and ball skills should make him a chunk play and red zone weapon. Despite his length, he's fairly crisp in his routes. Lasley declared too early but he's got the size, quickness and ball skills to earn a pro career. Elliott looks the part but wasn't an impactful guy at Texas. He's likely special teams until he masters the defense. Senat is a solid late round flier for OT. UDFA Davis is disciplined but speed challenged and will likely need to be reborn hard to stick at safety.

Browns shocked the major media draft world by drafting the underdog from Oklahoma #1 overall. Baker's tape suggested he ought to be near the top of the rankings but his size and character concerns kept him generally out of the discussion for the #1 pick. I think his relationship with OC Haley and HC Hue will be the key to his early success or failure. He possesses a considerably bigger arm than Tyrod and should push his way into the starting spot eventually when the coaches tire of the dink & dunk.

 

Ward is a phenom athlete and can mirror anyone but he struggled some with size at OSU. I think the Browns would've been better off trading back and picking up a CB of similar talent later. Corbett was a puzzling pick at the top of the 2nd round. Projected as an OG, but the team may try him at his college position of LT. RB Chubb essentially become underrated as teams coveted his faster teammate. He's got quick feet for his size, good vision, burst and power. DE/DT Thomas is a big, long body that can play inside and outside.

 

Drafting WR Callaway takes brass ones. I felt he was perhaps the most talented WR prospect in this class but he carries a long line of baggage with him. He's the prototype boom/bust pick. LB Avery's a solid pass rusher but undersized for the edge and inexperienced inside. He's an intriguing talent if DC Greg "Blitz" Williams can find a role for him. WR Ratley is speed guy that doesn't bring much else. Athletic UDFA OT Harrison should have been drafted but his character concerns scared teams off. LB Calhoun is an underrated guy and could stick. DT Thompson was expected to be drafted and rated highly by some but inconsistency on and off the field kept teams away.
