Falcons needed upgrades upfront on both sides of the ball and opted for the OL this go around. OG Lindstrom is a blue chip interior lineman who'll step in right away and fortify the RG spot. They traded up for RT McGary who's a dominant run blocker but may need some work as a pass blocker.

 

Their next two picks are elite athletes but aren't especially good football players yet. Both CB Sheffield and DE Cominsky have tremendous physical skillsets but need development to become solid pros. RB Ollison is a good candidate to be a steal. He's a 3 down RB with some some explosion and power. CB Brown is a solid later round prospect. WR Green's an all purpose back that should stick as a returner and situational playmaker with the ball in his hands.

Carolina Panthers

(16) Brian Burns, OLB, Florida St

(37) Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss

(100) Will Grier, QB, West Virginia

(115) Christian Miller, OLB, Alabama

(154) Jordan Scarlett, RB, Florida

(212) Dennis Daley, OT, South Carolina

(237) Terry Godwin, WR, Georgia

 

UDFA

RB Elijah Holyfield, Georgia

DB Corrion Ballard, Utah

LB Jordan Kunaszyk, California

WR Damion Jeanpiere Jr., Nicholls

The Panthers essentially hit on most of their team needs in this draft save safety but their draft class is full of gambles. Edge rusher Burns is a hish upside, long, toolsy guy with a motor but doesn't regularly have a plan. OT Little has length and experience but will need to overcome pedestrian feet to become even a serviceable OT.

 

QB Grier might be a solid back up or possibly more, depending on the status of Newton. He's got some decent pro traits, including pocket presence and clutch play, but more likely he's a back up or place holder type. DE Miller is another rush guy with tools but didn't see a lot of reps at Alabama. He's another boom or bust.

 

RB Scarlett is a banger with some versatility in pass pro and as a receiver. If his off field concerns are in his past he could be a great value mid round pick up. OT Daley is a solid developmental OL late rounder. And Goodwin is just more speed for one of the quickest WR groups in the league. UDFA RB Holyfield is a better player than he tested but still is a longshot to stick.

New Orleans Saints

(48) Erik McCoy, OG, Texas A&M

(105) Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida

(177) Sanquan Hampton, S, Rutgers

(231) Alize Mack, TE, Notre Dame

(244) Kaden Elliss, LB, Idaho

 

 

 

UDFA

RB Devine Ozigbo, Nebraska

WR Lil’Jordan Humphrey, Texas
LB Chase Hansen, Utah

DE Carl Granderson, Wyoming

DE Corbin Kaufusi, BYU

DT Shy Tuttle, Tennessee

DT Kenny Bigelow, West Virginia

CB Jordan Wyatt, SMU

LS Nick Moore, Georgia

RB Darnell Holland, Kennesaw State

WR Deonte Harris, Assumption College

TE Jake Powell, Monmouth

OL Ethan Greenidge, Villanova

 

Saints did what they could with shallow draft capital this year. OG/OC McCoy was a 1st round caliber talent imo and should be an impact guy upfront. Safety was a significant need and the Saints tabbed two of them in back to back selections. Gardner-Johnson and Hampton are versatile athletes that could play up or back effectively. But neither are blue chip and will likely good need time to develop.

 

Notre Dame TE Mack could be a steal. He's a good talent that declared early and has been overlooked through the process but has the hands and athleticism to be a solid pro receiving TE. Edge player Ellis is a typical late round flier. I think the Saints UDFA signings might be the best in the league. RB Ozigbo, WR Humphrey, LB Hansen and DE Granderson are all solid prospects with a better than even chance of making the team.

For offensive coach Arians return to the league, GM Licht thought it best to draft all defense prospects. Arians 19' offense will be sabotaged if the OL play doesn't drastically improve. LB became a need when the team became aware that 2nd year LB Beckwith, projected to start, would miss yet another season. LSU LB White has the physical and mental skillset to be an all pro for years..but he also shares a similar play style to the departed Bucs LB Kwon Alexander. He's frenetic and often all over the place on the field, false stepping and missing tackles.

 

CB's Bunting and Dean are top tier athletes and will be coached up to be press man starters. Bunting is a playmaker but Dean is essentially an athlete playing football. Safety Edwards and DE Nelson were great value picks. Both should outplay their draft slots and become solid starters in time. K Gay was considered the best place kicker in this class. WR Miller and DT Beckner are late round fliers only. UDFA WR Lodge had some moments as a senior at Ole Miss last year and could be a solid pick up.
