Gettlemen's 19' class all comes down to the evaluation of QB Daniel Jones. He had a mixed bag of supporters and detractors, all with valid critiques of why he was or wasn't, worth a high pick. I'm in the latter and had him as the 8th best passer in this class. That said, the key with Jones will be how long he gets to develop, because I think he has correctable issues; a deliberate delivery, pedestrian arm strength and telegraphing his throws. His running ability is definitely an x factor but he's often almost too tough for his own good; he never slides and is susceptible to injuries.
DT Lawrence has a wealth of natural talent and has the character to succeed as a professional but his college career was uneven and injury plagued.
Trading back into the 1st for a starting CB was questionable, as there would've been similar talents available later, but CB Baker has the tools to be a good one. If he learns to push the line without drawing too many penalties, he could be a star.
Edge Ximines was uninspiring to me on film but he fills a need and has the proper character to build upon. CB Love might end up more valuable than Baker and may have a future as the starting FS.
LB Connelly and CB Ballentine were solid mid round picks. Both have the talent to become more than jags. WR Slayton is a great sleeper. He reminded me of former Giant Dominek Hixon. OL Asafo-adjei and DT Slayton are your typical late round fliers that are likely just camp bodies. I was pretty high on UDFA WR Wesley and expect him to stick.

Eagles jumped the Vikings and took the best pass pro LT in this class to soak up as much as possible from Peters before taking over. The running game is likely the key to the upcoming season and the Eagles added a change up back to compliment Howard in Sanders. The Penn St prospect was far and away the best performer at the combine and has a solid, complete game but isn't quite as explosive as he tested and has had ball security issues.
I was a huge fan of WR Arcega-Whiteside and thought he was talented enough to be a first round pick. He uses size, quickness and superior ball skills to dominate. He should effectively supplant Jeffrey and do what he did even better.
Local star DE Miller was a good mid round selection and should earn a role. Thorson was an odd selection. He's a similar talent to Lions backup Tom Savage in that he can make some impressive throws but as a whole, his game is lacking. But more than whether or not he was draftable, Nate Sudfeld has shown flashes of very competent play and should be a rock solid reserve.
(58) Trysten Hill, DT, Central Florida
(90) Connor McGovern, OG, Penn St
(128) Tony Pollard, RB, Memphis
(158) Michael Jackson, CB, Miami

DT Ricky Walker, Virginia Tech
LB Justin Phillips, Oklahoma St
LB Luke Gifford, Nebraska
Cowboys went into this draft needing DL replacements and came away with three rock solid prospects in DT Hill and DE's Jackson and Jelks. All three play with extra high motors and have the physical skill set to be pros. It's nearly all on the coaches with them.
The rest of their draft I'm not near as high on. OL McGovern from a positional stand point was solid. He's versatile and has the physical skill set but his play had a lot of high and lows. RB Pollard is explosive but is much more a gadget WR and RS than RB. CB Jackson I thought was limited and more of a safety. RB Weber has solid talent but ball security wasn't a strength and S Wilson's a typical late flier. The UDFA class has a few easily draftable prospects like DT Wise and LB Hall.
(15) Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio St
(26) Montez Sweat, DE, Mississippi St
(76) Terry McLaurin, WR, Ohio St
(112) Bryce Love, RB, Stanford
(131) Wes Martin, OG, Indiana
(153) Ross Pierschbacher, OC, Alabama
(173) Cole Holcomb, LB, UNC
(206) Kelvin Harmon, WR, NC State
(227) Jimmy Moreland, CB, James Madison
(253) Jordan Brailford, OLB, Oklahoma St
The Redskins getting forced into needing a QB might end up a blessing in disguise. Rather than tread water with Alex Smith they've now got a legit franchise talent at the position. I think the Haskins falling narrative was entirely based on the Giants preferring Daniel Jones over him. Haskins has just the one year starting, but his mental and physical skillset are reminiscent of a young Matt Stafford.
Trading a couple of 2nds to go back up for Sweat seems like a high price to pay for a guy that was more workout warrior than big time college producer. I think Sweat will be a solid pro but I don't think his measuables will ever match his on field impact. WR McClaurin fills a critical need for a deep threat and was one of the most respected team leaders at OSU. His relationship with Haskins going forward could be a crucial component, on and off the field.
Trading back and picking up an extra 4th, the team made good on it's extra selections. They took a chance on RB Love despite the medical flag in much the same way they took a chance on Chris Thompson in 2013. Being an even better prospect, if Love works out just as well, he's a sure steal. OL's Martin and Pierschbacher are solid depth and the latter has a good opportunity to start. The next four selections are all good late fliers with better than average chances of sticking.
